IF This Is Not The Time To Wipe Out The LTTE What Is?

Time to take stock of the situation in Sri Lanka from a military standpoint where the purported two attack air-craft belonging to Liberation Tigers said to have carried out bombing raids at the Sri Lanka Air Force airbase at Katunayake at 12:45 a.m. early morning Monday seems loaded with speculative nuances.
For instances how did they fly into a high security zone uindetected
by radar and how did they allegedly return safely to the Wanni or
is this more balderdash generated by someone the LTTE call a "
military spokesperson "of the LTTE, Rasaiah Ilanthiraiyan who
is more a rif raff monger of their putrid organization at the best
of times and someone who needs to be cornered and dealt with effectively
for his role as a terrorist in a banned terrorist organization!
.It surely is a smear on the nation's defence capabilities that a
puny outfit of terrorists now have the capability to targert an air
base aerially where in reality they run around refugee camps and churches
trying to recruit child soldiers and most of their efforts to ship
arms and aircraft parts into the nation, extort money through intimidation
and threats are reported to have been thwarted albeit some of the
tolerances shown by the present as well as previous administrations
could well be taking their toll! This ring very true to a degree if
one looked at the manner in which the LTTE are said to have built
a satellite broadcasting system capable of transmitting to Europe
whereas they continue to remain a terrorist organization and one hardly
needs to ask the question " is this for real ?"
Certainly it is easy for Mr.Sandana de Silva, Communication's Director for 'Srilankan,' Sri Lanka's flagship passenger air-liner, to assert that the International Airport is shut and all 'Srilankan' flights have been diverted to an air-port in a South Indian state. Immediate areas surrounding the air-port and the adjoining SLAF airbase have been cordoned off etc etc. as part of his bulletin to the media but the fact of the matter is it seems to override the fact that this attack has ensued due to a huge breach in national security where the LTTE have been given too much leeway when they in fact should have been either cornered and incarcerated or decimated and crippled when the opportunity was there, taking note of the negligences of previous regimes also who prefered either to pay homage and or kiss their rear ends and to let Norway do the playacting on behalf of the LTTE courtesy of the duplicitous Eric Solheim and co.doing the hooting and literally dancing to their tunes while playing into their hands while the LTTE made merry regrouped! and returned to the shooting eventually
The despotic deposition by Rasiah Ilanthiraiyan following the first 'major aerial attack' by the Tigers where he has further said that "The attack is not only pre-emptive but also to safeguard our people from indiscriminate bombing by the SLAF seems another aberration of the logic and rationalities needed to interpret his garbled verbosity as there is no "Our People" other than his loyal LTTE cadre and residue of scattered diaspora which no longer constitute an appreciable or accountable percentage of all the peace loving Tamils of Sri Lanka who have long since abandoned their faith in Prabhakaran and named him as a psycopathic killer who needs to be brought to justice! And if this is infact the first 'major aerial attack' by the tigers it should also be their last where the Sri Lankan Administration and the Armed Forces now have their work cut out in an obligatory response to the people of Sri Lanka and her neighbours to ensure that the LTTE are wiped off the map or face the real related consequences!
In having the nerve to suggest even in fantasy that " Other Sri Lanka military installations will also be targets of our future attacks." this wretched example of humanity Illyanthiran who seems to have carte blance towards his terrorist identity as well as his bragging by virtue of an incomprehensible administrative tolerance which should be of a zero nature rather than tolerated at all! has further compromised his terrorist organization's expectations towards recognition of any form towards their credibilities not only within the Nation of Sri Lanka but the entire global community which decries and denounces terrorism in any form and is truly paving the way for the Sri Lankan Armed Forces, India and every other world power dedicated to the task of hunting down criminals of the image of the LTTE and perhaps Illyanthiran has signed his death warrant alongside those of the Wanni tigers who need to be sought out and destroyed in their entirety.
