    Britain should be shame of letting British Tamils to wag LTTE flags (a proscribed terrorist organization). LTTE which was the most ruthless terrorist organiation in the world according to FBI in 2008 was annihilated by Sri Lankan security forces in May 2009 after 30 yeas of ruthless war.

    Now many European countries, Britain, Norway, America, Canada and Australia have become breading places for LTTE separatist terrorists.

    If pro-Elam Tamils are given asylum then they are citizens of those countries and not Sri Lanka’s.

    Teach those citizens not to be a burden to Sri Lanka’s internal matters!

    Sri Lanka’s 30yr long war ended in May 2009. Pro-Elamists thought war would never end because they have good breeding grounds like Britain and elsewhere.

    Beware and be vigilant; do not contribute and support Tamil Elam separatism in Sri Lanka. Communal harmony cant exist when racist pro-Elamists outside Sri Lanka provocate peace loving people in Sri Lanka.

    “Beware and be vigilant; do not contribute and support Tamil Elam separatism in Sri Lanka.”

    What is wrong with Separatism?

    If husband and wife cannot live together they go on their separate ways.

    If two stupid people cannot share resources and live peacefully in one country then why cannot they go on their separate ways?

      Most of the countries in the list have gained independance from British and some other colonial rules similar to Sri Lanka did in 1948. Some other countries were too large so that the ruling was difficult and seperation could be justifiable. Even, think about the situation of most of the countries in the list. They are horribly filled with terrorism and civil/boarder wars.

      As you think, until what size does a country can divide? Can you give me any example of division of such a small country?

    In seeing these photos, it is not hard to see why the Tamils ended up forming the Tigers. Sri Lanka has not treated them very well since 1948. Nevertheless, I do not believe the Tigers were a good thing either. They were quasi-Marxist and violent. Yet, that is what happens when you treat people so badly. Sri Lanka reaped what it sowed. The sad thing is that even after the war ended, the Sri Lankan govt. is still not extending out an olive branch to them and getting the Tamils into the fold. There could be healing, but instead of listening to reason, the Sri Lankan govt. is forging ahead with muscle. Didn’t the govt. there learn anything?
