Image below of shipwreck visible from Google Earth. It is located off Mullativu Sri Lanka. According to a confusing post on Wikipedia, this ship is an LTTE freighter destroyed by the SLAF. The site I mentioned last week has more images of it. Consider it a literal accompaniment to the metaphorical LTTE shipwreck.
This is not the only shipwreck visible on from Google Earth along Sri Lanka’s coast line. This 2006 era image of Kankesanturai harbour shows a capsized ship and possible one other sunken ship.
The point of all this? That it has been a long war. Easy to forget that no? Not too long ago, the recent achievements for the SL military would have been unthinkable. The hard part will always be what happen when the fighting stops. Form many that’s where they may have to consider the thinks that were once considered unthinkable. Like a Sri Lanka where ethnicity doesn’t dictate where you can go or live. Gone on be cynical. I won’t this once.
This post nearly went to rant mode about the failing and tragedies of politicians past. But thankfully the backspace key prevented me from wasting your time and mine.
