The jets bombed the daylights out of them. The ground forces invaded. At long last the murderous suicide-bombing terrorists were being suppressed in a military campaign. Their total defeat put an end to any notion that the terrorists and their sponsors would be granted their own state. Many civilians were killed and wounded, yet not a single protest was made against the invasion anywhere.
Those silly, na?ve Sri Lankans ignored all the sage advice and just went ahead and solved their problem of terrorism with a military solution.
