Ha ha ha ha.
We haven’t stopped laughing.
Facing certain defeat at the hands of the Sri Lankan Army, the LTTE terrorists have announced, yes, prepare yourself for this mega-joke, an unilateral ceasefire.
Yes, sir the same LTTE terrorists that wrought ceaseless misery on Tamils, Sinhalas and other ethnic groups for over 25 years and murdered the late Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and countless others, have announced a ceasefire. Make that begging for a ceasefire because in their present decimated state, the LTTE terrorists are only in a position to beg.
Folks, the ceasefire declaration is nothing but a macabre joke by the LTTE terrorists to gain breathing time and strengthen themselves before launching their next murderous assault. It must not be taken seriously.
Here’s an excerpt from the LTTE’s terrorists’ macabre joke:
In the face of an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and in response to the calls made by the UN, EU, the governments of the USA, India and others, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam has announced an unilateral ceasefire. All of LTTEâ€™s offensive military operations will cease with immediate effect.
What a Joke
The Sri Lankan rightly rejected the latest LTTE nonsense as a joke.
Laughing at the LTTE terrorists’ ceasefire offer, Sri Lanka’s Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa told Reuters:
That is a joke. They were not fighting with us, they were running from us. There is no need of a ceasefire. They must surrender. That is it.
Ignore the ceasefire baloney and crush the LTTE terrorists. Show these terrorist monsters no mercy.
I hope you read about the nincompoop a.k.a Ramadoss who compared Prabhakaran to Mandela ( http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/India/Ramadoss-compares-Prabhakaran-to-Mandela-Arafat/articleshow/4451766.cms ).
I hope someone from the world stage takes offense and wallops this idiot.
Why leave out Gandhi? What sin did the Mahatma commit to be so excluded.
LOL. I dont understand why the SL army is taking so much time. Why dont they jus add extra forces and take the LTTE men into custody and hand us Prabhakaran?
As for your question (you know what), time ekkuvaga undha (lot of free time on your hands)?
Umm… did u get pissed off or something? I got the info from a friend, he gave it to me. I dint pry or anything 🙁
Yeah, yeah and the Sun rises in the West.
Heh! My first comment to be censored! I’m honored, Senor! 🙂
Yeah, yeah. We can already see the anti-censorship brigade marching down the Prakasam barrage (bridge across Krishna river in Vijayawada) and threatening us with dire consequences.
LTTE will continue waging a guerilla warfare now ……..SL has created a humanitarian crisis of a magnitude which they cannot take care off ………(considering thier intentions )…..they will fail miserably in taking care of its Tamil Citizens ………this issue has never grabbed so much attention at the International Level ……
What they have tried to hide for such a long time …..by not allowing independant observers and the media is now out in open ….
With their ranks so badly decimated, it’ll be hard (but not impossible) for the LTTE to continue their struggle.
S.I. With their ranks so badly decimated, itâ€™ll be hard (but not impossible) for the LTTE to continue their struggle.
nope, I agree with srinivas here.
After Rajiv’s murder, Tamil Nadu (the people I mean) has totally went against LTTE absolutely no support .. other than few nedumarans , vaikos and seemans. BUT now with all the crisis, TN tamils have come to a mind set to support LTTE, so even if Prabaharan is caught or killed the LTTE could prevail with the added funding from TN tamils. The guerilla warfare is very hard to defeat and LTTEs are the most experienced in it, they were defeated by insiders turned deserters and increased global military support for SL. These guerillas will now hide in the dense forests, come to colombo once in a while and blow themselves. This will not simply STOP.
You write above: The guerilla warfare is very hard to defeat
We doubt this is true under all circumstances.
In the 1980s, Europe and parts of Asia witnessed some violence – Red Army in Italy, Baader-Meinhof in Germany, Red Army in Japan. But the violence petered out when some of the leaders were captured or killed.

agree, but in these cases as well as the Irish case, there was a political solution made alongside the sinhalese will never give anything away, also, they didn’t survive such a long time like 30 years, LTTEs would regroup and probably redefine their goals, identify new financiers and continue to kill the sinhalese .. you know their motto is ‘give back what your enemy has given to you’ … even then we haven’t heard any sinhalese girl raped by them. Though few of their methods like hiring minors forcibly, human shields are beyond excuses, they still earn great support because of this one reason, they don’t harm enemy civilians, never caused intensional mass killings or rapes as their enemy do. Many of their human bombings are having political or defense targets only. My prediction is the movement will prevail in some form or the other even after prabhakaran is finished.
As an Australian-Tamil (note the lack of ‘Sri Lankan’ used in my hyphenated identity) I condemn the Sri Lankan government and its human rights violations against the Tamil people.
Murder, torture, abductions, the jailing of reporters & journalists for the use of ‘free media’, the recent use of cluster bombs and the list goes on. The Tamil community are protesting all over the world (people are self-immolating themselves, we’re marching down the streets to our parliaments, we’re holding hunger strikes and vigils etc) and we will continue to do so until the Tamil people receive their justice.
My parentâ€™s generation is testimony to the fact that if the government defeat the LTTE a unitary state is not possible. The Tamils have lived in fear, oppression and discrimination for over 2 decades. We’re all dispersed globally now, run out by our government just because of our ethnicity.
And now people are dying and all we can do is protest and pressure our governments into asking the SL government to call for a ceasefire. Although you may laugh at the LTTE, you can’t laugh at the 1000’s of Tamil civilians dying in the conflict by the hands of the Sri Lankan government. They may be claiming to have killed many LTTE soldiers, but are they letting on how many Tamil civilians theyâ€™ve killed in the process? Too many to count. Itâ€™s despicable. There needs to be a ceasefire now.
This conflict between the SL government and the LTTE is not a conflict anymore, itâ€™s a genocide by the Sri Lankan government.
1. The death of any innocent civilian caught in the crossfire between two warring groups should be a matter of concern to all human beings.
Whether it’s Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Bosnia or Germany, genocide cannot be condemned strongly enough.
2. You write: Murder, torture, abductions, the jailing of reporters & journalists for the use of â€˜free mediaâ€™, the recent use of cluster bombs and the list goes on.
In a long life, we’ve spent countless hours reading all kinds of stuff.
But seldom have we been so moved as when we read the posthumous editorial of the murdered Sri Lankan journalist Lasantha Wickrematunge published in the Sunday Leader on January 11, 2009.
3. That said, we remain steadfast in our view that the LTTE leadership (Velupillai Prabhakaran, Pottu Amman et al) should be brought to book for the murder of our former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on Tamil soil (in Tamil Nadu, India).
4. You write above: My parentâ€™s generation is testimony to the fact that if the government defeat the LTTE a unitary state is not possible
You actually mean a federal state (with devolution of power to the units), right? Because a federal state is more conducive when there are different ethnic groups in different parts of a country.
