Sri Lanka: Failure Of LTTE

Indi.ca comments on the failure of LTTE tactics: “they are a successful crime syndicate but not successful representative for the Tamil people. And I’m obviously not telling Tamil people who to choose as representatives, but we all live on this island together. Guys that buzz our city at will blowing random **** are probably not your best, er, emissaries.”

    This is not true. The government of srilanka failure to give an equal rights to the tamil community, which are the original nationalist of the srilanka. All of their democratical movements are crushed by the government brutally by using lankan army. At last they decided to demonstrate with arms. This is purely Govt’s fault not the LTTE’s fault. Nobody oppose it.

      Many different things happened in the past…..Certain times Sinhalese gvt was wrong and somethimes the LTTE organization was wrong….But the real solution to this problem is correct our mistakes and move forward as one country..but not to further expand the gap between the two communities by dividing the country…..
      No matter what ….Prabhakeran was a selfish man who wanted his own success but not anyone elses. Tamil people made a big mistake for chosing him as their leader..Tamil people sufered from his actions more than Sinhalese….Tamil children lost their childhood. My friend Arulkumar, would you give your children or siblins to LTTE? ……This is not right….Prabha is a living devil not a human being……

    Mr.Bini, you are wrong. You state lankan govt certain times made faults. Thanks U and i trust you that you are a wright person to discuss this matter. Right or wrong, the divide of two communities are already made and going deeply because of gout’s and some other fundamentalist’s fault. henceforth there is no chance to live both communities are together. Do, you know the indo pak divition, that time Our father Mr.Gandhi strongly said that if the people wants the divide, nobody have the right to oppose. That’s why we asked the international community to make a common voting movement, if the Tamil people will decide what they want. But, first the war should be stopped, the lankan army will come back to their old positions, the UN peace keeping force should be there for Tamil’s security, the international Tamil organization should be formed. That the above said decisions are taken by the UN, then only we ask the LTTE to surrender their arms to the ITO.

    This problem has been going on for decades and ages… “Tamils” are being killed in majority. Why doesn’t prabhakar understand that? I think the pride now lies only in opposition. I have been to UK and US. I have seen the way tamils behave. I don’t think they really feel for their people. In UK, these people are a havoc and the proof is out in BBC.

    I agree to Mr BINI’s comments.

    As for Md chidambaram:

    Don’t assume things. We all have a heart and do understand. But LTTE should better understand that the loss is more on their side. Finally, the whole country will vanish because of one man’s flaw!

    LTTE always asks for UN and other interference. can’t they assess their status and situation? They have been waiting and waiting for someone ( like Us India etc..) to interfere. How long do they want to wait more? Prabhakar is very cunning! he lets his people die.. shaows some pictures on the website as if its onlt the TAMILS being killed! Sinhalese are also affected but there is no news about that!

    I think the entire situation has lost its focus.

    I being an Indian tamil – feel extremely sad for MY TAMILS in Lanka. They actually have 2 sets of people against – Sinhalese and TAMIL LTTE

    c’mon guys be honest… the war has been going on for 10-15 years … OK. is there any good change for having spent all the lives?

    Common man is dying! My heart burns !

      Mr.sabaree’s, first you should understand what you want to tell? How you state that Prabhakaran should surrender because of the innocent tamil’s death. He is the leader of that nation and also he is the only trustful leader for the entire tamil community living in this world. at the time of the al quidha attack in newyark the entire america is praying their leader Mr. Bush’s safe. He is taken in to the underground bunker ( at least 30000 feet below sea leavel), not only the eelam tamils, we, the indian tamils and the entire tamil world have the power to protect our leader at any cost. We will give our sole itself to Prabhakaran for his long life….. You know, the Ex Tamil guardian ( only by actng) Mr. kalaigner is now crossed 86 years, He wants his life and power and his family wealth also… that’s why he dont want to save the tamil’s life. How you accept him.? and How you want Prabhakaram surrender? There is no other solution without seperate Eelam nation.
