This is Sad ! My sympathies to the Airmens Families ! We are good at shooting down our own the BEll 212 , not those darn ltte tins cans ? Why ? Lankatruth says the Air Force Bombed Iranmadu & destroyed one one of the Zlins..any truth to that ? But, we need to support our troops man not matter what !

Attack is the Best Defence said...

hey DW is there any truth in the news that forces were able to capture 3 injured black tigers alive.(This is very unlikely to happen)
and the claim about the destroyed zlin in iranamadu.
What was the RSF of the airforce doing here. Were they on somewhere else?
PLS put some information regarding these news items becos we have been blinded by the government censorship and the over confident LTTE propaganda machine.
(I have on of my closest friends lost in this unfortunate incident)

government press is being utter stupid by running headlines about how SLDF killed "suicide" cadres while conveniently downplaying our hardware losses.
that's just plain stupid trying to mislead public...those reporters should be ashamed of themselves...
we were out smarted and beaten down... admit that first...fix the problem and then move on...
killing suicide cadres after they achieved their objectives isn't a very good "victory" for us to run headlines on...

Maygod bless the souls of those who we lost in yesterdays attack and may they rest in peace...
Shame on the leaders who are trying to cover up all these kinds of incidents rather than do corrective measures so it wont happen again

Ranil then what the hell are you suggesting? Headlines

"LTTE humiliates impotent military, $40million loss to country"

Way to keep the morale of the military up. Some people are just ...

IE...don't get your knickers in a twist mate for no reason :)
So you know that government hasn't admitted the full loss though the enemy and more informed people know what happened?
You yourself is starved for info and that's why you visit these blogs to get a clearer picture... This is not a special right you or i enjoy and every sri lankan have the right to know what happened and who was to blame.
Do you know tat the government hasn't admitted the loss of the beech craft etc?
They are on a cover-up which will only make these kind of misjudgements by the leaders happen even more...
There's no glory in screaming about killing suicide cardres after them taking out lots of our assets...they aheived their objectives with flying colors...
read the latest defencewire reports this base had to call in special forces to tackle the intruders...how shameful is that man... An entire base at the mercy of a few dozen tigers and have lost our greatest recon assets...
Guys like you who scream for nothing and buy into all the crap gosl dishes out are the reason for these kinds of mistakes by the leaders...
they all know there are people like you will do a great job in covering up their sorry buttes when they screw up...
The commanders of this base should be court martialled...

In battles you win some and you loose some...that's fair.
But to loose due your stupidity and to loose so much of assets in such a way is not acceptable. Our forces are better than that and this is an insult to all those brave troops.

You go and help goverment media to cover it up since you seem to enjoying their dumb news reports and utter stupid headlines
