Sri Lanka: Tigers pushed further back; take town's population hostage

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Reuters 04/01/2009)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Tamil Tigers, have again been pushed back, after a recent attack, which took their capital, including their "Banking sector"; government troops: have taken another important area. The town, recently taken: had almost no non-combatants: as these are suspected to have been taken by the terrorist grouping: in order to be human shields. The Tigers broke a peace treaty recently, giving the Sri Lankan government the political support: to actually pursue the annihilation of the rebels:

Previous conflict had aimed at gaining a foothold to get the Tigers to the negotiating table, but recent assaults by the Government of Sri Lanka: since the Tigers broke a peace treaty: have resulted in forcing withdrawal after withdrawal by the Tigers: who recently were reported as kidnapping 16 boys from a Catholic Orphanage: by gunpoint: in order to serve some purpose for their war effort.

The Tigers, have not recently made any official commentary, on the situation apparent, since their defeats.

It is expected by many: that this recent outbreak of war: will finally wipe out the decades long Tiger rebellion.
