Desperately scoring own goals as victory looms ahead

Just as the Sri Lankan army is on the verge of capturing the last bastion of the LTTE in Mullaitivu, the Sri Lankan government warned foreign diplomats, western journalists and international aid agencies that they would be “chased away” from the island if they attempt to side with the beleaguered Tamil Tigers. This doesn’t qualify as snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, but it comes perilously close.

In the meantime, Sri Lankan journalists are subjected to even more violent attacks.
