You bet there will be

You bet there will be support for the LTTE as long as they get MONEY from the LTTE reserves! The LTTE has used its vast collections of coerced and other funds to get platforms on, and support from, persons working for international organizations to project the LTTE viewpoint.
As one can see, they are continuing to receive this support even though Sri Lankans had begun to see through the veil of the LTTESupport's actions after the Lasantha killing and the UNP effort to make hay out of it So they are continuing to exploit it internationally.
Why the people working for international organizations do not see through it all, can only be for one reason MONEY/JOBS!


is there any tamils still

is there any tamils still supporting LTTE?


Would INGOs supporting the

Would INGOs supporting the LTTE say this is also the work of the Sri Lankan Army? No one can be in their right minds if they cannot see the LTTE for what they are, and keep on assigning blame on Sri Lankan authorities for atrocities committed by the LTTE. LTTE has never had any sympathy for civilians, and they are not accountable to anyone but the chief executioner Prabakaran, unlike the Sri Lankan Forces which are accoutable the goverment and the people of Sri Lanka.


"Sole representative" of the

"Sole representative" of the Tamils have no right to kill innocent Tamil civilians including women & children. They are doomed if they stay with the terrorists and they are doomed if they leave.

They started by killing the tamils and they end up doing the same. A record that will be written in the history books of the Tamils.

This is how they are utilising the money sent by Tamil Diaspora abroad.

Hope Canada and Tamilnadu in particular are listening to the news.
