    Tamil terrorist groups would not have existed if not for India,it is they who financed and trained them.With seemingly isolated attacks taking place in the north against the army and the police our weak government should reconsider the decision that allowed an Indian consulate in Jaffna.

    Honestly tell me, Would it be appear even in any news side if a army person in civil was attacked in the south?.. it is all in the mind of the people. There are thieves , criminals and gangsters are every where in all community and all part of the country. If indeed you want to link this to LTTE, do you think is it difficult to find fire arms? The FACT is no one is dare to take up the arms, even if some one takes, I am sure Jaffna people would inform to police..30 years was a bitter and hard experience for every is only CRIMINALS are behind all these
