    Why worry guys,

    LTTE has all the rights to buy the National Carrier.

    They bombed and destroyed the Central Bank structure during Killer Velu’s time.

    They got a second chance to destroy it during its proxy (TNA)’s time. They destroyed the Central Bank monetarily also by giving advice to Run-nil how to do the Bond Scam. Because LTTE had all the rights to destroy it.

    Similarly, they bombed our national Carrier’s air crafts and Mother Lanka survived. LTTE has all the rights to come back and destroy it again.

    Everybody should be given a second chance under the humanitarian law and the Good Governance principles.
    So why worry.

    • Give them the TV stations,
    • Give them the Central Bank,
    • Give them the National Carrier,
    • They already own the major businesses in SL,
    • Give them Maththala Airport
    • Give them our Natural Resources,
    • Give them our water resources,
    • Let them provide power to us.

    Then let’s get perished!
