    The report doesnt say a word about Tamils. It could be anything. It could be a foriegn terror organization. do not jump to quick conclucions to mock our Tamil citizens. Wait until know for sure.

    The Sri Lankans involved in collecting money for terrorist Organisations should be arrested and sent back to Sri Lanka to prosecution.

    LTTE is not a terrorist organization. It was a freedom movement that wanted to liberate the Tamils from the clutches of Sinhalese tyrannical rule.

    @beau. That's the big problem why it came to the conflict. You do not consider Tamils as Sri Lankans.

    beau, you do not have the courgage to write your own name. You are the cardboard patriotic Sri Lankan. Did you fight a war? Have you given anything to a Sri Lankan disabled soldier?
