She examines how after 9-11 the Tamil Tigers quickly found themselves on the wrong side of history and how a once feeble government was emboldened by the Global War on Terror launched by the US and its allies.While many security experts are hailing Sri Lanka as a case study in how to defeat an insurgency, Mariana finds that it comes at a steep price.
