    What a fool we have as our Prime Minister. When the whole Western World was telling us that the Tigers are invincible, we proved them all wrong by using our own forces to eliminate the terrorists. When we have such a force, do we need a female Western security expert to give us any advice or assistance to deal with the present threat ?
