There is no excuse for any form of attack on civilians and I am not writing this to defend LTTE in any sense. But the reason I am writing this is the motivation of this article. It blames tamils indirectly, in the name of LTTE, and covers everything on government or sinhalese side. If LTTE is ruthless and fighting for a mono ethnic state, how you are going to describe the sri lankan governments from 1956? Ltte came to exsitance in the late 1970s. But killing, rapes, looting and all forms of discrimination against tamils were started long ago in the 1950s. when Ltte shoot the bus and kill 4 sinhalese it is Cannibalism. But how you are going to call when the government forces or sinhalese mobs kill tamils on the street like dogs? I am talking about the incidents happened well before 1983. think about the anti-tamil riots in 1958, 1971, 1977, 1979, 1nd 1981. What you call burning a library under two govrnment ministers' supervision? What you call the president telling "I don't give a damn about tamils, let our people teach a lesson" while tamils were killed in hundrads on the street? All the sinhalese and their politicians think sri lanka is only for sinhalese and buddists. That is the root for all the hellish acts. First change that, everything will be alright.
