it seems there is some sort of attack on navy camp in galle.
three suicide boat attacks on an 'old ship' (and some navy boats according to military spokesman) and some mortars were fired from rumasella hill according to igp. both say that situation is under control and military trying to capture terrorists. no need for panic. police curfew on in galle.
combined with recent pussy attacks, this shows clearly exactly who do not want peace talks to begin and want to provoke a backlash. i personally expect pussies to step up attacks in a desperate bid to get that backlash and it will certainly include attacks against civilians as well true to form.
fortunately sri lankans are more intelligent than that and will not be provoked, in spite of best efforts of ltte propagandists and its ngo helpers like cpa, inform, and the rest, who try to portray them as ever ready reenact '83 and try to magnify small riots into genocide attempts as with april trinco incident. however ngo peaceniks will remain deliberately blind no doubt.
