ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Tamil Tigers, a Sri Lankan militant organization that sought to secede from the country and establish an independent Tamil state, was defeated by the Sri Lankan military in May, 2009, ending a 26-year civil war. The strategic approach by the Sri Lankan military is considered for its applicability to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
