  1. Until ten years ago most of these were terrorists carrying guns and killing people of Sinhalese, Tamil or Muslim. They still have the pain of crushing defeat by Government Forces despite the weapons and financial support from countries including West. Many are also uneducated barefooted guerilla carders who fought for dreaming of concurring Sri Lanka one day. What they did not realise was Westerners cannot cheat the world anymore, the technology is available to everyone to watch ‘live events’ These Tamil people need to understand that the country cannot be divided or receive unfair advantage just because they voted Sirisena.

  2. Ugly head of Tamil Terrorism has regain after MS, CBK and UNP being to power in after 2015 January 8th.
    They are risk at democracy of whole country that including Tamil civilian in North.
