Finally, EU wakes Up!!
It took a very sad loss of a great diplomat & greater individual to convince the European Union that LTTE is basically a terrorist organization. The killing of Sri Lankan foreign minister Lakshman Kadiragamar, who actively campaigned against the atrocities of LTTE has pushed EU to impose a travel ban on LTTE delegates.
To quote EU declaration " The European Union hereby declares its condemnation of the continuing use of violence and terrorism by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The pursuit of political goals by such totally unacceptable methods only serves to damage the LTTE's standing and credibility as a negotiating partner and gravely endangers the Peace Process so much desired by the people of Sri Lanka.The European Union repeats its condemnation of the shocking murder of Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar and of so many others in Sri Lanka in recent weeks. "
It is a great victory for the Sri Lankan government because this will force LTTE to rethink their strategies. They have been killing & violating the so called Cease fire agreement with impunity because no one raised any concerns other than Sri Lankan government. Specially Mr, Kadiragamar. Norwgiens has been covering up all the wrong doings of LTTE while trying to put blame on our Army. Now the Norwegian government has been changed & there is a strong possibility of EU formally listing LTTE as a terrorist organization, which is the actual fact.
While accepting that there are several major problems for Tamils in Nothern & Eastern part of Sri Lanka it does not justify the killing of innocents all over the country or repressing democracy in those areas. LTTE never wanted to have a democratic solution for these issues. They want a separate country for themselves, without any other political party. They want dictatorship over Tamils & Muslims in those areas.
Fortunately world is slowly accepting the truth. LTTE is a terrorists organization. They should be forced to lay down weapons and come to a political agreement with Sri Lankan government & other Tamil parties. They are not the sole representative of Tamil peolpe in Sri Lanka. Actually they are not any kind of representative of Tamils. They are terrorists who will kill anyone opposed to their views . If they keep refusing political solutions they should be destroyed by whatever the way necessary.
