"tamil tigers vow retaliation"- so what?

some of the western corespondents here are highlighting smiling pussy's aka tamilselvan's statement; "(we will) weaken the military capacity of the government of sri lanka, which will invariably end up hitting economic targets as well". this ap report in washington's post is typical, it starts; "separatist rebels vowed thursday to hit military and economic targets across the country in retaliation for the army's capture of eastern sri lanka, ..." (btw so called 'rebels' may have forgotten that they said only the day before that army did not capture east). meanwhile the racists at afp say "tamil tigers threaten guerrilla warfare after conventional defeat". others of similar ilk also did likewise. peaceniks are parroting ltte spokesman as usual.

it is a pity (and typical) that these so called journalists forgot to ask; what is new in that ? have the terrorist pussies done anything but "hit military and economic targets across the country " before? (militarily speaking of course, that they engage in all kinds of other atrocities goes without saying.)

fact is the people in the east feel much safer now. occasional terrorist attacks on military and civilian targets in east (which will happen and will be unavoidable even when ltte is reduced to a handful) is not perfect, but that is certainly better than living under terrorist oppression or imminent threat of terrorist invasion or artillery attack. anyone who belittles recent military victories in east should ask themselves why they considered colombo and its suburbs with their own occasional terrorist attacks safer than east and north.

as i have said before "victory in this war will not be determined by the attacks carried out by terrorists but rather how many or how few people will be forced live and act in terror day in and day out."

don't they want the people in the east to be free of ltte's direct oppression or threat of direct oppression?

and don't they want people in the north to be likewise? or do they want an unsustainable 'peace' in colombo at any cost (at the cost of human rights, justice, freedom and democracy. especially of the people in north and east provinces of sri lanka)?

did not blog recently. same old story; was busy and traveling, including to trinco. but will be relatively free soon .
