An Epic Weekend

First, the overwhelming Congress win, and now the final defeat of the LTTE in Sri Lanka, an epic weekend to be in Chennai. Since yesterday, the Tigers have only controlled half a square mile, and now even less. Rumors are that they are threatening mass suicide unless American or British forces step in and guarantee their fighters safety from the Sri Lankan army. Also, an interesting article from Tehelka from a photoj0urnalist who covered Prabhakaran for years, and watched him perfect the art of manipulating the media, long before Al Qaeda made a habit of it. I wonder if this military defeat will actually spell the end of violence in Sri Lanka, or whether the sleeper cells and support in the diaspora will continue the fight.
