    Is it any wonder the supporters of the murderous terrorist LTTE want the military to leave the North? With loads of ammo they can start another war. The Army will stay forever. Those who don't like it can leave the country, forever.

    Wow, this must have been one of the largest armouries of the LTTE. There could be more buried in underground facilities. The army has to continue their search ops.

    I just do not underatand why SL gov is not doing a documentary of LTTE atrocities similer to the one C4 has created. They still spend a huge sum on the defence but this is the need of the hour. So, the US congress can see it some day...

    Extraction of information from former LTTE cadre takes a long long time. Finding these in 3 years is good. Yes we are in a great country. If you are unhappy pack your bags and board a Refugee Ship.
