    Let them strike.. this is hilarious.. these things only happen in Sri Lanka
    Did they do it when they worked for LTTE and when they were sent to the front line.
    They are treated too well in prisons in SL, instead they should have kept in a purpose built prison in one of the islands as Americans do.
    at the end of the day, these are terrorists, a threat to the life of innocent people. I salute America for treating terrorists as terrorists

    Naturally when they see all those pictures of their freed comrades all over the city enjoying themselves and taking photos etc. must be giving them a bad appetite!
