Though we had the information confirmed to us several hours ago, we only indicated this to our readers with an informal update to our main post. This is because we considered it our national leader’s honourable duty to officially announce to the world that the war against LTTE terror is over with the conclusion of the humanitarian operations conducted by the Sri Lanka Defence Forces, the Police Service and a host of other agencies working together with the people of Sri Lanka.
We are extremely humbled by the commitment and sacrifices of all who gave their limb & life for us to see this day. There are many who worked hard to make this day happen. We do not need to tell our intelligent readers who, what, when, where and how this amazing task was achieved.
It may be an opportune moment to acknowledge our “ladies” who have been an inspiring readership, spurring us on in what we did. We were going to fold our blog with the announcement of Ellalanforce poll results. However you requested us to carry on and here we are at the most exciting time of our nation since independence. For us this day is several times more significant than independence from Britain.
With our hand on our heart we can say that from the very beginning EFT has been utterly committed to ridding our motherland of filthy LTTE terrorists. Our original intention was to take the terror-supporting bloggers for a joy ride. We achieved that with some remarkable success. By then we realised that we can go a step further and offer a forum to our readers to discuss defence matters in a serious yet fun environment. Only you can be the judge of how we went about achieving that.
While we celebrate the occasion let us spare a thought for the thousands of our war heroes who gave their lives for a most noble cause; let us dig deep to do whatever we can do to secure a better future for our motherland and all its peoples.
