Why No Peace is Possible Without Exterminating Potential Terrorists

The incompetent Prime Minster quite correctly stated that returnees from Syria could not be punished sufficiently as the law does not cover it. As per the current Sri Lanka law, they have committed no grave crime. However, can the people and the nation rely solely on the law and legal means to save themselves? No. Lives, limbs and property are far more valuable than being politically correct or legally correct. National security must use legal and extra-legal means to ensure public security. Otherwise the terror that grips the nation today, the impending economic collapse and political instability will be here to stay.

Laws Lag Behind

The above example is just one. There are plenty of others. The law simply doesn’t change as fast as terrorists change their tactics. Lawmakers in Sri Lanka are hardly the smartest. Therefore, one cannot expect them to foresee future threats and make laws. Thirdly, there are those who oppose tough laws that may interfere with human rights. All this means the law is far from capable of ensuring public security.

Implementation of the Law is Inefficient

Even if the law was perfect, not all terrorists can be nabbed going by the law. The process is highly inefficient, riddled with obstacles (including reconciliation) and can be twisted by corruption and collusion. Even if this process is perfect and all terrorists are produced before court, there is no guarantee they will be punished and they will not engage in terrorism operating within the safety of the prison.

Countries like USA, UK, etc. use outside jurisdictions to punish terrorist suspects where US human rights don’t apply. Gitmo Bay is one such place. Some suspects were transported to Pakistan and Algeria to be handled tough. They are entitled to a high degree of human rights in the US and the EU.

Overcoming the Threat Sustainably

Given these facts, the only way to sustainably overcome terrorism is to exterminate terrorists and potential terrorists. Sri Lanka has plenty of evidence of this method’s success in 1971, 1989 and 2009. It not only save the innocents from acts of terrorism; it also prevents indoctrination of others. Sri Lanka was chosen by a global terrorist network because its security was weak. Even if the terrorists are caught, they can still operate either from their homes (as they will be released) or even from prisons. Extermination of terrorists and potential terrorists force them to think twice.

Nonsensical Solutions

Some writers unaffected by terrorism and mostly living outside Sri Lanka have proposed nonsensical solutions based on religious philosophies. They look cute on paper but murderous in reality. Peace didn’t dawn on Sri Lanka from JVP and LTTE terror using any of this dogmatic nonsense. It was a process of extermination that brought peace.

When they join with political parties, a toxic and dangerous mixture is created.

Horror Truth – Sri Lanka Does Nothing to Ensure Public Security Than Recover Terror Material

So far, the military has done nothing to ensure public security in the long term! A number of explosives were recovered. However, this has been happening for years. There is no difference in what the military did in January 2019 and what it does today. No terrorist or potential terrorist was killed, abducted or otherwise eliminated.

Sadly, this means the threat is not affected at all by military operations. Terrorists get to fight another day and they will.

    How can Bangladeshis arriving on TOURIST VISAS work in Sri Lanka?

    Why were they RELEASED instead of being JAILED, PUNISHED and finally DEPORTED to Bangladesh?

    Is this RESPONSIBLE GOVERNANCE? Who allowed them to enter Sri Lanka? Where is the FOLLOW UP of tourists who enter Sri Lanka to ENSURE THEY LEAVE when their VISA EXPIRES?

    Not only do these MUSLIM TERRORISTS kill PEOPLE, but they ROUTINELY FLOUT the IMMIGRATION LAWS of Sri Lanka at them. This is NOT THE FIRST INSTANCE of their IMPORTING MORE MUSLIMS and SETTLING them in Sri Lanka ILLEGALLY. Rishard Bathiudeen no doubt would call them War Displaced Muslims and Settle them on WILPATTU forest reserve land as well! God Damn these TRAITORS in Government!

    WIPE THEM OUT without MERCY!

    Police take 11 Bangladesh workers from Sri Lanka into custody

    Police have taken into custody 11 Bangladeshi workers of a Sri Lankan factory owned by a suicide bomber after Easter Sunday attacks on churches and hotels.

    Police were questioning them after they returned on Friday, police’s counterterrorism chief Monirul Islam said on Saturday.

    They will be released if nothing suspicious is found in initial investigation, he said.

    “They took job at a factory despite having tourist visa. They don’t have any criminal record.”

    They worked at the copper factory owned by Inshaf Ibrahim, a 33-year-old who detonated his explosive device at the busy breakfast buffet of the luxury Shangri-La hotel on Apr 21.

    Sri Lanka has shut down the factory and sent back its foreign workers to their countries.

    Islam had earlier said Bangladeshi militants might draw inspirations from the Sri Lanka attacks.

    On Saturday, he said there was no information about any security threat until now.

    A crackdown on militants following the 2016 Holey Artisan Bakery attack broke the militants’ mental strength, he said.

    BANNING NTJ IS NOT ENOUGH!

    1. IDENTIFY and PROSECUTE all those who VIOLATED the laws of Sri Lanka over the last 20 years allowing these MUSLIM EXTREMISTS to TAKE ROOT in Sri Lanka. Many MUSLIM POLITICIANS in ALL LEVELS of Government contributed to their AGENDA.

    2. STOP the ILLEGAL INFLUX of FOREIGNERS into Sri Lanka and OVERSTAING of TOURIST Visas. STOP LEGAL ALL IMMIGRATION of Foreigners. Sri Lanka is ALREADY HEAVILY POPULATED; there is NO ROOM and NO RESOURCES for more.

    3. STOP allowing MADRASSAS and Sharia Universities in Sri Lanka. CLOSE them down as ALIEN to the MODERATE Sri Lankan Muslim society, and as POSING a MORTAL TREAT to Sri Lanka.

    4. Permanently BAN full-body BLACK ATTIRE worn by Muslims and their BURKA face coverings as ALIEN and TERRORISM PRONE and as engendering FEAR in the minds of other citizens. FRANCE, the land of Liberte’, Egalite’ and Fraternite’, among other European Nations has done this, WHY NOT Sri Lanka??

    5. BAN Muslim practice of having MULTIPLE wives! ENFORCE ONE MARRIAGE LAW for ALL CITIZENS! Stop the Muslim BABY-MAKING machine and ABUSE of Women! Liberate Muslim Women!

    6. BAN Sharia LAW completely! There should be ONLY ONE SYSTEM of LAW for ALL Sri Lankan citizens!

    7. STOP the building of Muslim Mosques at every STREET CORNER with overflowing influx of SAUDI WAHHABI MONEY!

    8. Force Financial Institutions to offer the SAME LOANS to All Citizens irrespective of RELIGION! BAN exclusive SHARIA LENDING!

    9. STOP the Muslims Practice of TAKING OVER Villages, Towns and Regions SOLELY for THEMSELVES preventing ALL OTHER CITIZENS from buying Lang, Settling and conducting BUSINESS in those areas! PRECLUDE the CREATION of Muslim Bantustans within Sri Lanka!

    10. BAN ALL schools from admitting only students of ONE RELIGION. REQUIRE the teaching of Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam in ALL schools, PRIVATE or PUBLIC!

    Peace and Tranquility in a country does not happen by ACCIDENT; it is the RESULT of WISDOM, PRACTICALITY and ENFORCEMENT!

    ELECT Gothabhaya the next President to EFFICIENTLY USHER propel Sri Lanka in this direction! Kick out the this Un Patriotic Party from Government NOW!
