    This is the problem recruiting tamils to police. We should have finished the job we started 3 years ago. Shame on you SF who stopped killing remaining tamils in northeast.

    The only plot of land we all need at the end is about 6 feet in length and 4 feet in width and a few feet deep. The rest is all not necessary!
