There really isn’t much to say about it. On the one hand, I am ecstatic that the LTTE is finished as an organisation, but the cost to civilian lives puts Sri Lanka on par with Rawanda in the 1990’s and today’s Sudan as one of the most repulsive governments on the planet. No thanks to support by the governments of its neighboring countries and the incompetence of the UN. Thank God I do not have to live in that junta.
The American’s may bomb blast civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, but compared to the Sri Lankan army, they are angels.
Now that the military have won, are they going to give up all that power and money? I don’t think so…
Will the last person left in Sri Lanka please turn off the lights?
