Why LTTE failed
Sri Lanka’s Security Forces appear to have
redeemed their professional reputation with their resounding success
in the fourth edition of the Eelam War, which has been going on
since 2006 against the LTTE, popularly known as the Tigers. They
were not able to achieve decisive results against the LTTE in their
three earlier outings.
When Tigers are caged
The past few weeks have seen four major public
demonstrations in Ontario by Tamil-Canadians demanding that the
federal Government do something to stop what they describe as a
genocide against their people by the Government in Sri Lanka.
The bitter endgame
After 26 years of vicious civil war on Sri Lanka
the Government has decided to do what it once sought to avoid:
destroy the fanatical LTTE uprising in a relentless offensive. If
the result is an ethnic and sectarian bloodbath, so be it. After
all, ‘suicide attacks’ are a Tiger trademark.
