Female suicide bomber kills 28 in Sri Lanka

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

One wonders what possess those to mass kill civilians when carrying out killings of their intended victim.  Cowardice of course enters into it, when Mano O Mano is lost on those who are too chickenshit to face down an enemy, perferring to do it subvertly.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka -- A suspected rebel suicide bomber killed 20 soldiers and eight civilians when she blew herself up Monday at a facility where government forces were processing Sri Lankans fleeing the northern war zone, the military said.

The bombing was the first major suicide attack in Sri Lanka in more than a month and led to fears the Tamil Tiger separatists -- boxed in by the military and on the verge of defeat -- will increasingly turn to guerrilla warfare in their battle against government forces.
