Should Sri Lanka Send Forces to Afghanistan?

There has been concerns on India being in Afghanistan and the tensions that is it causing between Pakistan and India.

The latest bombing in Pakistan was carried out by the same group who bombed Sri Lanka's cricket team.

Given, Sir Lanka's ability to fight the Tamil tigers, it would be wise to look at enlisting the help of the Sri Lanka army to fight the Taliban.

Now given the past history between India and the Tamils that live in India, that may be a sticking point for India.

And there were reports that Pakistan was helping Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka's war with the Tamil tigers.

However, given that the Tamils have been beaten by Sri Lanka, it probably would not be a sticking point when India considers what is at stake in Afghanistan.
