Tiger Pirates and Terrorists

While the Western governments are fighting the Somalian pirates-who have been trained by the Tiger Terrorists-the Sri Lankan Government had to single handedly fight the Tiger Pirates for the last ten years. The Tigers have pirated many foreign vessels and looted their contents and at last we see the Jordanian Ship FARAH 111, which was captured by the Tigers in December 2006, and brought to the shores where the Tigers held sway. At last the ship was rescued yesterday by the Sri Lankan forces from the terrorists who were using this ship as an operational center.

In a few more days we hope this terror will be soon over and a new day will dawn in Sri Lanka, where we hope and pray all civilians of all ethnic groups will live in peace and harmony.
