  1. When common sense fails, the law must guide the people. Arrest them and put them in jail for years to teach a good lesson. Airport authorities also must keep an eye on Tamils. The West wants to continue to occupy the moral high ground, Tamils will continue to help the West at the expense of their motherland and Asia. We can’t allow this to happen forever.
