Are the LTTE ‘terrorists’ or ‘freedom-fighters’?
Freedom-fighters are, by definition, fighting for the freedom to govern their own country. No-one can claim to be fighting for ‘self-determination’ or freedom in some-one else’s country! For example, Tamil terrorists cannot claim to be fighting for freedom in the UK, Canada, France, Sri Lanka or in other any country other than in their own country! And ‘their own country’ is, by definition, their motherland! Since the Tamil motherland is Tamil Nadu (where 62 millions of Tamils live) any ‘freedom fighting’ - or ‘liberation fighting’ - can only be carried on there. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is the motherland of the Sinhela Nation and only the Sinhelas can engage in freedom-fighting there!
People like Mandela and Begin were fighting in their own motherlands and were therefore not terrorists but freedom-fighters, unlike the Tamil terrorists! Since the Tamil terrorists, whose motherland is Tamil Nadu, are attempting to seize part of the territory of the Sinhela Nation’s country, they are effectively attempting to carry out a conquest! They are, therefore, not just terrorists, but camouflaged invaders!
