It is said that the main intention of recent visit of a high profile Indian delegation to Sri Lanka is to asked the Government to stop military action against the LTTE.

Pointing out that the Government's action against the LTTE was aimed at liberating the people of the North from terrorism, Minister Yapa said that both countries concurred on the need to address the grievances of the Tamil community through a political solution.
"Our relations with India were never as friendly and favourable as today. It is as a result of these healthy relations that not only political leaders but also top officials of the two countries are holding discussions on a regular basis," he added.

Israel and Hamas ceasefire

A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has begun,

Under the terms of the truce, Israel will ease its blockade on Gaza and talks to release an Israeli soldier held by Hamas are expected to resume.

Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert, has warned that the truce, which started at 0600 (0300 GMT), will be fragile.

At least 40 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza at Israel on Wednesday and Israel carried out air strikes.

Another militant group, Islamic Jihad, who lost several members to Israeli air strikes in recent days, claimed responsibility for some of the attacks.

The United States on Wednesday expressed hope that the Gaza ceasefire deal between Israel and Hamas would force the militant group to "give up terrorism."

"We hope this means no more rockets will be fired by Hamas at innocent Israelis as well as lead to a better atmosphere for talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority," said U.S. National Security Council spokesperson Gordon Johndroe.

"We appreciate Egypt's efforts and hope they are ultimately successful, but for that to happen, Hamas has to choose to become a legitimate political party and give up terrorism. They can't continue to do both," he said.

Israel on Wednesday officially confirmed an Egyptian-brokered truce with Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip, starting at 6:00 a.m. (0300 GMT) Thursday

England unable to ban fund raising for terrorism.

The British have facilitated fundraising for Tamil Tiger Terrorists for the past 25 years on British soil. These terrorists have openly held events in UK to celebrate suicide bombers and fund their terror war against a democracy. British politicians attend these events in exchange for money and votes from terrorists living in the UK. Here is an example: Senior UK Labour MP Keith Vaz speaking at a rally praising suicide bombers: http://www.spur.asn..au/Keith_Vaz.htm. Then the British went on to become the ally of the U.S. to fight terror!!! It is really odd how a nation that funds terrorism openly can go on to fight it. Now the President of Sri Lanka has brought the attention of the entire world to the double standards of the British that has helped terrorists for a quarter century.

The very recent incident is the Pro-LTTE groups using 'sports events' to raise funds.

Under the guise of a 'Sports Competition' the proscribed terrorist outfit LTTE is working on holding a fund raising campaign through British Tamil Forum (BTF) and Tamil Youth Organisation (TYO) suspected LTTE front organizations, sources from London reveal.

Sources also say that the event has been organized to glorify suicide cadres of the LTTE.

The event is to take place on the 29th of June in London.

The UK's Metropolitan Police and Anti-Terrorism branch have been unable to ban the LTTE's front organizations from conducting such events in the UK as the events are announced only a few days before the event takes place and advertising and marketing of these fundraising events are undertaken by pro-LTTE businesses, mainly retailers, operating in the UK through the distribution of leaflets and posters on shop front windows, the Asiantribune reported.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa in an interview with a UK newspaper this week urged the Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora in the UK to be vigilant of such LTTE clandestine operations carried out to collect funds for the outfit highlighting that supporters of the LTTE were able to raise millions of pounds each year from the Tamil community in Britain, some of whom were coerced into donating the money.

The President reiterated that there is only one kind of terrorists and said "I don't agree that there are good terrorists and bad terrorists.

SriLankan Government dissolves 2 provincial councils

SriLankan Government dissolves 2 provincial councils
North-Central and Sabaragamuwa Provincial Councils
The North Central Province was headed by Berty Premalal Dissanayaka and the Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council was headed by Maheepala Herath before the government took this decision.
According to government sources, in the North Central Provincial Council, the ruling United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) currently has only 13 member seats against the opposition represented by the United National Party (UNP) with 10 seats, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) with 8 seats, and Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) with 1 seat.
In the Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council, the UPFA has secured 19 seats against the opposition parties, which include the UNP with 15 member seats, JVP with 10 seats and Ceylon Workers Congress (CWC) with 1 seat. The government says the lack of a simple majority will create difficulties in passing resolutions in the two Provincial Councils.
The main opposition the UNP and firebrand leftist party the JVP yesterday fired fresh salvos separately at the Government for its decision to dissolve two Provincial Councils and go for polls, a move which has triggered a series of allegations.
they also saids that this is an extra expend of public funds and wastage.
The government is doing this without any valid reason to fulfil its irrational desire for power during a time when the people are suffering due to the escalating cost of living.
JVP says they go to courts against dissolving.
UNP says they succesfully faced to the election and win it.

at this moment 30 people killed 10 females 5 students and more than 80 has injured.the bus was very crowded at the moment of explosion. many school children are dead and injured.
This is the 4th explosion done by LTTE cadres in a highly crowded civilians areas within two weeks time.

Emergency crews were rushing the wounded to a government hospital, and police said they feared the death toll would rise.

The blast happened near a southern suburb in the city of Colombo.

Police said they also discovered and diffused a claymore mine in the same place, preventing another

LTTE is a ruthless terrorist organization fighting for a mono ethnic separate homeland for the Tamils in Sri Lanka since 1983. During 3 decades of its bloody terror war against Sri Lankan citizen it has killed tens and thousands of innocent civilians in village massacres, bus bombings, train bombings, suicide bombings, and etc.

There is a military solution to terror' says Wall Street Journal

the best way to end an insurgency is, quite simply, to beat it."

Very strongly arguing against what it called "the mindless" and irrelevant phrase that there is no "military solution" to an insurgency the influential Wall Street Journal said in an editorial that President Mahinda Rajapksa of Sri Lanka now promises victory over terrorism by the end of year even as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) continue to launch high profile terrorist attacks.

Written by Bret Stephens the powerful editorial board member of the paper who was also the former Editor in Chief of the Jerusalem Post, the editorial said, "In Sri Lanka , a military offensive by the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has wrested control of seven of the nine districts previously held by the rebel group LTTE, better known as the Tamil Tigers. Mr. Rajapaksa now promises victory by the end of the year, even as the Tigers continue to launch high-profile terrorist attacks."

The editorial entitled "There is a military Solution to Terror" said, that Sadr City in Baghdad, Guviare Province of Colombia and the Northern Districts of Sri Lanka have become crucial reference points on a global map in which long running insurgencies suddenly find themselves on the verge of defeat.

The editorial categorically said, "Tigers are notorious for killing other Tamils seen as less than hard line in their views of the conflict. The failure to defeat these insurgencies thus becomes the primary obstacle to achieving a reasonable political settlement acceptable to both sides."

The editorial strongly advocated: "the best way to end an insurgency is, quite simply, to beat it."

The following is the full text of the editorial:

Sadr City in Baghdad , the northeastern districts of Sri Lanka and the Guaviare province of Colombia have little in common culturally, historically or politically. But they are crucial reference points on a global map in which long-running insurgencies suddenly find themselves on the verge of defeat.

For the week of May 16-23, there were 300 "violent incidents" in Iraq . That's down from 1,600 last June and the lowest recorded since March 2004. Al Qaeda has been crushed by a combination of U.S. arms and Sunni tribal resistance. On the Shiite side, Moqtada al Sadr's Mahdi Army was routed by Iraqi troops in Basra and later crumbled in its Sadr City stronghold.

In Colombia , the 44-year-old FARC guerrilla movement is now at its lowest ebb. Three of its top commanders died in March, and the number of FARC attacks is down by more than two-thirds since 2002. In the face of a stepped-up campaign by the Colombian military (funded, equipped and trained by the U.S. ), the group is now experiencing mass desertions. Former FARC leaders describe a movement that is losing any semblance of ideological coherence and operational effectiveness.

In Sri Lanka , a military offensive by the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has wrested control of seven of the nine districts previously held by the rebel group LTTE, better known as the Tamil Tigers. Mr. Rajapaksa now promises victory by the end of the year, even as the Tigers continue to launch high-profile terrorist attacks.

All this is good news in its own right. Better yet, it explodes the mindless shibboleth that there is "no military solution" when it comes to dealing with insurgencies. On the contrary, it turns out that the best way to end an insurgency is, quite simply, to beat it.

Why was this not obvious before? When military strategies fail -- as they did in Vietnam while the U.S. pursued the tactics of attrition, or in Iraq prior to the surge -- the idea that there can be no military solution has a way of taking hold with civilians and generals eager to deflect blame. This is how we arrived at the notion that "political reconciliation" is a precondition of military success, not a result of it.

There's also a tendency to misjudge the aims and ambitions of the insurgents: To think they can be mollified via one political concession or another. Former Colombian president Andres Pastrana sought to appease the FARC by ceding to them a territory the size of Switzerland . The predictable result was to embolden the guerrillas, who were adept at sensing and exploiting weakness.

The deeper problem here is the belief that the best way to deal with insurgents is to address the "root causes" of the grievance that purportedly prompted them to take up arms. But what most of these insurgencies seek isn't social or moral redress: It's absolute power. Like other "liberation movements" (the PLO comes to mind), the Tigers are notorious for killing other Tamils seen as less than hard line in their views of the conflict. The failure to defeat these insurgencies thus becomes the primary obstacle to achieving a reasonable political settlement acceptable to both sides.

This isn't to say that political strategies shouldn't be pursued in tandem with military ones. Gen. David Petraeus was shrewd to exploit the growing enmity between al Qaeda and their Sunni hosts by offering former insurgents a place in the country's security forces as "Sons of Iraq." (The liberal use of "emergency funds," aka political bribes, also helped.) Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has more than just extended amnesty for "demobilized" guerrillas; he's also given them jobs in the army.

But these political approaches only work when the intended beneficiaries can be reasonably confident that they are joining the winning side. Nobody was abandoning the FARC when Mr. Pastrana lay prostrate before it. It was only after Mr. Uribe turned the guerrilla lifestyle into a day-and-night nightmare that the movement's luster finally started to fade.

Defeating an insurgency is never easy even with the best strategies and circumstances. Insurgents rarely declare surrender, and breakaway factions can create a perception of menace even when their actual strength is minuscule. It helps when the top insurgent leaders are killed or captured: Peru 's Shining Path, for instance, mostly collapsed with the capture of Abimael Guzman. Yet the Kurdish PKK is now resurgent nine years after the imprisonment of Abdullah Ocalan, thanks to the sanctuary it enjoys in Northern Iraq .

Still, it's no small thing that neither the PKK nor the Shining Path are capable of killing tens of thousands of people and terrorizing whole societies, as they were in the 1980s. Among other things, beating an insurgency allows a genuine process of reconciliation and redress to take place, and in a spirit of malice toward none. But those are words best spoken after the terrible swift sword has done its work.
