Enter Vidusha

LTTE's senior most Women's Military Wing cadre and leader of the Women's Wing, Vidusha has been sent to Vavuniya LTTE FDL to strengthen the organization's defenses in the area against continuous assaults by the Army. The Vauniya FDL is 'manned' by a large number of female cadres and it is hoped that Vidusha's coming would assist them hold the defenses against marauding Army units.

Pro-LTTE websites today claimed that 10 SLA were killed in Kurisuddankulam in Mannar and that for bodies of SLA are to be handed-over to the ICRC. A picture of four SLA bodies were also released. This claim, along with the photo is completely false. In the last two days, the Army launched several small-scale attacks on LTTE lines and movements without heavy casualties. SLA have not left behind any casualties either. Several bodies of LTTE cadres killed in these and previous skirmishes were handed-over to the ICRC by the SLA two days ago.

Meanwhile the death-toll in the Kebitigollewa II attack has increased to 16, with another injured civilian succumbing to injuries. The total injured civilians now stands at 22, a few of whom are in a critical condition. The death-toll in the parcel-bomb attack at Nugegoda has also increased to 20. In another development, Air Force spokesman Group Capt. Ajantha Silva has been sent to Pakistan as the Defence Attache at the Sri Lankan High Commission in Pakistan. Ajantha, a close confidante of the Air Force Commander, is a highly qualified aeronautical engineer specializing in fixed-wing aircraft. Defence cooperations between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has increased during the recent past.

The LTTE and army handed over the bodies of troops and cadres killed in action following operations in the North. The ICRC said it had recieved the bodies of four soldiers from the LTTE and the bodies of two LTTE cadres from the army today.

"Since the commencement of the Mannar military operations in the recent months, the worst battle was reported last Sunday morning between the military and the LTTE’s Charles Anthony regiment cadres, which is the LTTE’s most experienced fighting unit."

hemantha,
This article refers to the attack last Sunday. DW article relates the report on tamilnet posted today claiming an attack happened in kurisuddakulam where 10 SLA was KIA and bodies to be handed over. There was no such attack after last Sunday and Monday's incidents. It seems the report was delayed for some reason, to make it seem more as if it was yesterday or day before. The article is also inflating LTTE casualties.

hemantha said...

Thanks Defencewire. I don't know how accurate the above news items are. But gathering all the available information would help to get a clearer picture of the situation. (At least that was my aim.)
Actually the news about these bodies of four soldiers was stated in a separate news item. click here.

Panhinda said...

When the LTTE men cannot handle the heat, send in the women. When that fails, what next send the children?

Defencewire said...

hemantha,
I think both reports relate to the Sunday/Monday attack. Charles Anthony Regiment's deployment in this sector is nothing new. We highlighted their presence several months ago. http://defencewire.blogspot.com/2007/10/special-forces-hunt-charles-anthony.html

Jack said...

Defencewire of the photo in Tamilnet shows one of the bodies already bloated, which would indicate exposure for some period. So could the LTTE be handing over bodies from previous incidents? Thanks.

the boss said...

yes ltte is losing this. 20 charles anthony brigade unit cadres were killed. SLA is advancing towards wanni. and pigs have been reported flying over Iranamadu.

rofl pathetic blog, yet another morale booster lying about the reality. haha cya

Panhinda said...

/* Radio communications had also revealed that the LTTE leadership had ordered the Mannar Special Military Leader Jeyam */

What happens to Jeyam when he defeated again? Does he become the 'Not So Special Leader' of Mannar?

Sam Perera said...

scum boss,

Judging by your scum writing style and your thirst for blood/terror, I believe that you are a perfect fit for LTTE. I am sure that you can climb the ladder very quick to attain the "great terrorist" status. If needed, I can chip-in for your cyanide capsule with pleasure.

Upul said...

Defencewire,

Are you clamming the 4 bodies shown on Tamilnet are not SLA ?

While you or your news source claim its fake, can you given an explanation as to how you came to that conclusion.

If charles anthony division has been deployed then expect major battles ahead with casualties for the SLA.

Remember war is not about real estate. VP in 1999 waited for SLA to come to mankalum before he struck back. In one week of Tiger onslaught, sri lanka army lost more than 1000+ sq km and went back to square one.

With so called army special forces and 53 division, even "inexperienced ltte divisions" can cause a major mauling and that will be the end result.

Eager for political mileage, rajapakse & co has been wasting special forces and 53 division on publicity stunts that have caused massive losses. Once they are expended by and large, the real fireworks begin.

Upul said...

I should correct myself:


Without so called army special forces and 53 division, even "inexperienced ltte divisions" can cause a major mauling and that will be the end result.

Upul said...

Three prong tactics by LTTE, will force more soldiers to be redeployed to the south.

That is:

1) Set piece battles in the north

2) Commando operations, air attacks on military targets

3) Attack on economic targets in the south.

If SLA wants to pursue 1), it doesn't have man power to guard for 2) and 3).

Gota's strategy of targeting VP is acceptance that invasion of Vanni will not be possible, hence they want to go after "leadership" as a consolation gimmick.

Remember LTTE is the best well armed, trained, funded insurgent group in the world in the footsteps of vietcong, eritrian rebels and SLA is poor, mediocre in terms of a military.

Upul said...

Civilian Deaths in ANURADHAPURAM my ass..

MOD caught in a lie again, consistent pattern here. Gota nose should be longer than the Eiffel tower by now.

Civil defense forces legitimate targets in a war.

ANURADHAPURAM (TE) -- Photos released by the Sri Lankan Ministry of Defence (MoD) confirmed today that the 16 people killed in a claymore mine explosion here on Wednesday night were all fresh recruits to the newly established 'Civil Defence Force'.

Earlier reports said that 35 men were returning from the Anuradhapura Army Base when their bus was targeted.

Latest photos released by the MoD shows injured men in camouflage shirts and khaki trousers being ferried away by ambulances.

All the injured and dead were also men. There are no men-only bus services operating anywhere in the island.

In fact local sources confirm that in this remote part of the island, where 80% of the people live on less than a dollar a day, there are no public bus services at night time.

There are two bus services here, one at 8AM in the morning and another at 2PM in the afternoon.

Upul said...

To keep frustrated Rajapakse supporters happy after all this negative news, lets make up facts as we go along, yeah 200,000 LTTE dead.

Killinochi is in site, yes, through Hubble space telescope....

VAVUNIYA (TE) -- Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and Sri Lanka Army (SLA) exchanged dead bodies recovered in either side of the de-facto border here on Thursday.

International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) said that it had received the bodies of four SLA soldiers from the LTTE and the bodies of two LTTE cadres from the SLA.

Meanwhile, the SLA claimed that it had killed 39 LTTE cadres on Thursday, taking the past seven days of claims to over 250.

According to the SLA more than 200,000 LTTE cadres have been killed during the past quarter century of civil war.

Panhinda said...

Hey Upul,

To defeat the army, LTTE must kill 10 soldiers for every LTTE carder killed. Without comprehensively beating the army, you cannot have Eelam. Its simple as that.

Also for LTTE to do '3 pong' attacks, it has to take away strength from somewhere else which then becomes vulnerable. When the '3 pongs' return to base, they will find its not there anymore.

Abhimanapura claymore attack.
Eye witness accounts.

click here . It's the fifth item under "VISHESHANGA"

Attack is the Best Defence said...

ok then the kabethigollawa attack in 2006, where around 10 small children were killed, I guess all of them were recruits of the civil defense force. REMEMBER ... 64 civilians were targeted and most of them were not men...

Attack is the best defence,

It was the night bus (the last one for the day) from Kabilithygollawa to Padaviya. No wonder most of the travelers are men. "Lakbima" correspondent has interviewed a woman traveling in that bus.

Attack is the Best Defence said...

Hemantha,
The claims about the bus services by an LTTE supporter here are entirely false too.
I have traveled to padaviya and janakapura once and the bus services from anuradhapura to padaviya operates in gaps of 3 hours. (This was in 2002 CFA time and with the addition of new CTB buses, the service might be improved now)
8.00 AM , 11 AM, 2PM and the last one at 5PM
8.00 AM bus usually gets delayed due to road clearance checks.The mooring bus from janakapura area to anuradhapura is usually crowded and most of the passengers and school children , mothers and children who come to anuradhapura to get medicine and other items etc..
SO sad to see that people who have never seen a glimpse of this area commenting here on wut they have handpicked from pro rebel websites..

Ranil said...

Guess Upulam couldn't resist the white washing job he gets paid to do by em ltter's
what a loser... maybe he gets a kick out of looking at dead women or something...

Attack is the Best Defence said...

ANURADHAPURAM (TE) VAVUNIYA (TE)
TE must be Tamil EElam....
but the initail tamil eelam map ends with Vavunia so .... any change of plans... for the kolam state

hemantha said...

The bus has left Anuradhapura at 5.40 pm with around 150 passengers. But fortunately the number has decreased to 50-60 at Kabilithigollawa. Otherwise casualty figures would have been huge.

Though its an Army bus or Civilian bus, it's about killing people. Killing people is the Hobby Terrorism. Terrorism should be erased. Only then, the peace will continue.

LTTE terrorists, it's supporters, fake peace lovers and pro-cowards (find them in here as well) are trying all possible ways to stop Peace in Sri Lanka through spreading false rumors and stop Army Advances.

If LTTE terrorists are that Powerful, Intelligent and Consistent; and that cannot be defeated in anyway (that's what pro-cowards claim about LTTE Terrorists), no need of these professional claims/ analysis and statistics. SLA will go to the dead zone; the LTTE terrorists will box SLA and be defeated by great numbers.

If you can't bare the truth, please don't visit these blogs. Just keep visiting Tamilnet.

Therefore;

"PLEASE KEEP YOUR TERROR STATS AND ANALYSIS WITH YOURSELF!

NIEGTHER WE NOR LTTE TERRORISTS NEED ANY PRO-COWERDS FORCASTS ABOUT THE WAR OR PEACE! (because no one says what they do, beforehand)

IF YOU FEAR OF FOGETTING YOUR STATS, WRITE THEM ON A DIARY!"

Sam Perera said...

"upul"

Didn't your mama tell you not to smoke that powder ever again? Boy, you keep doing it like your fellow LTTE members to see Eelam. Yes, it was a 3-prong ping-pong attack by LTTE. Such well planned acts committed by Velu and Pottu, when they were high took LTTE to the hearts of Indians for ever. So it was not civilians who were attacked by LTTE. Mama told you not to use that powder. By the way, thank you very much for the strategic LTTE information about ping-pong attack. We will pass that to MOD.

tangara said...

Guys,

The characters like Upulam and the bossman aka the boss (he got this handle from the movie, blood diamond, where one of the main characters called the boss a 14 year old child soldier in Siera Leone...This guy is grown up child soldier in the LTTE).
is to distract the contributors in the forum who discuss millitary matters how best to defeat the LTTE.
Just forgot these LTTE clowns in the forum..Let them write what they wish..The international community by now knows what is going on in Sri Lanka..They are not complaining except for occasional protests statement...

Don't loose your focus...Keep on focusing how best to bash the LTTE mother funny terrorists...

Keep them on the run....

These LTTE maveers in Vanni are now fighting for their own lives.

SLA , go all the way and distroy them...

Srilankan said...

well said tangara..i wish all the LTTE youngsters will surrender to the forces.Then the high up LTTE majors, field marshalls. generals and their families can fight the army.but wait...what am i saying..they are all abroad away from harms way..possibly getting an overseas education?

Renegade! said...

defencewire,guys

Righy now the SLA is mostly in contact with LTTE second-string formations,comprising of women,child cadres who are offered as "cannon fodder"..if the SLA,has come into direct contact with any HARD-CORE LTTE units,that would be mostly in LRRP attacks,& other small-scale skirmishes..

The deployment of the "charles anthony brigade",with possible fighting formations from the "Leopards","Imran pandiyan' & a surprise 'hit',by a "Sujolan" underwater unit,against naval units,cannot be ruled out..For how long are the Tigers gonna be wasting their manpower(& ladies)?..

Weaponry-wise,the LTTE is pretty depleted,with their floating "warehouses",going to the bottom of the sea..However,the relationship with the south-indian ledership,still seems pretty comfy(of course,in secret!)..and definitely many tamils in south india,are still supportive of the LTTE..

Upul said...

Mr Tangarra,

You think this little blog is going to change the war ? Somehow you guys here can come up with defence or attack strategies that strategists from both sides haven't ? Who are you kidding ? Get off your hobby more like rocking horses. Unless of course if you are trying to say SLA lacks strategic intelligence and need random bloggers for instructions ?

With timely intelligence from turncoats in the SLA, in most cases LTTE is waiting for SLA forces to walk into traps. You are talking about a first-world armed and trained army vs a third world mediocre one.

Chandrika once said "if we had decent, uncorrupted officer corp, there still wouldn't be a war." No matter whatever latest weapons are bought, it will endup in the hands of LTTE anyways, so please keep on giving, shopping and earning commissions.

So please prod your leaders to buy SU-30, Mig 29, T-72 battle tanks, it will help increase Tamil Eelam's arms inventory.

Upul said...

Just like how Israel has complete control of Jerusalem, so to will Anuradhapuram and Pollanaruwam be in Tamil Eelam hands very soon. To visit Bodhi Tree you will have to wait in line to get visa from TE customs office and you know what, the West will endorse that solution.

Defencewire said...

upulam,
"Are you clamming the 4 bodies shown on Tamilnet are not SLA?
While you or your news source claim its fake, can you given an explanation as to how you came to that conclusion."

The 4 bodies shown on Tamil net seem to be SLA. We don't have to report or discharge these casualties because they were widely reported by the media. The point is this. The fighting occurred on Sunday. The TN report comes out on Thursday. 5th and 6th there were skirmishes with SLA gaining some upper-hand. We wanted to clarify that these bodies weren't from the latest skirmishes.

"If charles anthony division has been deployed then expect major battles ahead with casualties for the SLA."

SLA is not an army new to casualties. An army never goes to battle without expecting casualties.

"Remember war is not about real estate. VP in 1999 waited for SLA to come to mankalum before he struck back. In one week of Tiger onslaught, sri lanka army lost more than 1000+ sq km and went back to square one."

Agree about the real estate part. LTTE however is trapped within some 'realestate' south of Jaffna (Pooneryn is Jaffna), north of Mannar Town,Vavuniya Town and Weli Oya (Kokkuthuduwai/Mulaithivu). SLA, I have a feeling, will take its own sweet time because they are not under any pressure. However, LTTE is. They, for the first time since we can remember, must defend this 'realestate' from marauding SLA units.

LTTE bypassed SLA at Mankulam and attacked the rear at Kilinochchi. They used a large number of Eastern Cadres for this operation. This is a battle won. A war has many such battles.

"Without so called army special forces and 53 division, even "inexperienced ltte divisions" can cause a major mauling and that will be the end result."

The Special Forces operations have been limited to a specialized role since the start of this war. The majority of the attacks conducted now are by 57, 58 Divisions. Gajaba, Vijayaba, Gemunu etc units have taken the lead in many of these attacks, including the fighting in the East. SF and CDO operations get publicity because they obtain breakthroughs in the battle field. Yet they soon leave to perform other special functions and the regular infantry takes over. An army is never all about its elite units. The ordinary infantryman/woman has a huge roll to play in this and in the SLA, they seem to be getting better at it. Therefore I think you are making conclusions based on some problematic convictions.

'three prong tactics"

This is an old formula of VPs. Interestingly the military is also using the same tactics against LTTE. Therefore the same limitations (perhaps even higher) apply to the LTTE.

Targeting VP is not necessarily because of an inability to clear Kilinochchi. It is to decapitate the LTTE. It could also be a part of a psy-ops to keep VP's movements under check and to instill fear. This is an added burden on the organization to protect him. It also limits VPs free movements and command. However, if successful, it could be a morale booster for SLA, SLAF, SLN etc. It becomes a reverse psy-ops.

"You think this little blog is going to change the war ? Somehow you guys here can come up with defence or attack strategies that strategists from both sides haven't ? Who are you kidding ? Get off your hobby more like rocking horses. Unless of course if you are trying to say SLA lacks strategic intelligence and need random bloggers for instructions ?"

The purpose of this blog is to share information. Its a learning tool whose value you will never understand! You yourself are part of that information feed. Each time you write, you share information/thinking/mindsets/attitude/beliefs etc. So thank you!

"You are talking about a first-world armed and trained army vs a third world mediocre one."

No army is greater than another. Please check Iraq, Vietnam, Somalia, Afghanistan, Cuba (bay of Pigs invasion) etc. Its not the weapons of a country's wealth but the quality of its infantrymen that count in the ongoing conflict of insurgency + terrorism + guerilla = LTTE.

"Just like how Israel has complete control of Jerusalem"

Israel doesn't have complete control of Jerusalem. Suicide bombings can and have taken place in Jerusalem, even in the sacred city at will. Comparing LTTE to Israel is not conclusive enough.

Upul said...

DW,

Thank you for your comments:

Once SLA Vanni-Omanthai defence lines are obliterated, I wonder what "wall of defence" is left between LTTE and Anuradhapuram....

Talking about psychology, major crumbling of SLA defence lines have lead to steam rolling of camp after camp.

"No army is greater than another." But what you said in followup "Its not the weapons of a country's wealth but the quality of its infantrymen " are all elements of an army. So your statement in this regard is uncovincing in the timescale were are talking about, 30 years. Different armies do have different advantages, skills. Hands down US military has an advantage on all major elements of set piece (conventional) battles. If it faces another military with set piece battles, it is bound to win so with respect to conventional battles, therefore it is greater than any other.

tangara said...

I am glad these LTTE clowns in the forum waisting their time trying to proove that they are winning the war...

After loosing East and unknown number of high ranking LTTE maveers, Arms carrying ships in the sea , they got nothing to tell now rather than taunting SLA for their great losses..

For the last 2 years LTTE looses are greater when compared to the SLA..
That is not going to be easy to regain..

For every SLA casuality , 5 LTTE maveers either get killed or wounded.


Single biggest loss for the LTTE is East..
Then their arms carrying ships..

Now the LTTE morale at the rock bottom after making TC a maveer..

No wonder they are whinging...

Guys just forget these clowns..

They lost the battle..

The last time I checked, the LTTE has lost the east. This time they'll loose Wanni too. Fat pig VP will be in the jungles, which is good for him because he might loose a pound or two due to malnourishment. In the end, LTTE will be trapped in the jungles with nothing left than a gun. Nothing to eat and drink other than their own piss and shit.

I really hope the government will not let the LTTE sympathisers back into our beautiful island. We need a list of people who gave money to the LTTE and ban then from ever entering Sri Lanka.

And, we need to find this Upul guys sister, so she can feel how my cock tastes like :)

Upul said...

Like I said, some timely ass whooping:

Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) thwarted an attempt made by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) to advance from Maanthai into Adampan Friday morning in a fierce fight against the SLA which lasted from 9:00 a.m until 3:00 p.m, sources in Mannaar said. Both sides have not released any information.

A large number of SLA troops engaged on the advance attempt supported by heavy Multi-Barrel Rocket launcher, artillery and mortar fire.

Military helicopters were seen flying from the site where the fighting took place.

Weapons and ammunition of the SLA abandoned by the withdrawing troops are found lying scattered at the site, the sources said.

ATTACK IS NOT BEST DEFENCE

Upul said...

"For every SLA casualty , 5 LTTE maveers either get killed or wounded."

Quite the contrary, actually almost the opposite is true. Listen if life is so good for the SLA officers why are they scrambling like rats from a sinking boat for every opportunity to seek asylum in the West ? Some we know got their life time lottery worth of money for aiding Tamil Eelam, others desperately want a better life than becoming some paper general's cannon fodder or to bring entertainment for MRs budget speech.

LTTE has chosen not to hold onto land, which it didn't fight for. All the occupied land was as a result of SLA troops being diverted to North post 1993. Occupation of East is inconsequential to quest for Eelam. War is not about real estate.

NOTHING will change the war, since it is already over. There's only the battle that remains, and the writing is on the wall on that issue too.

There will never be a partitioning of Sri Lanka. There is really no need even to address that issue anymore. Now it is just a question of how much further the tamil population gets diminished in the process of eliminating the terrorist infestation on Sri Lankan soil. No matter what the cost, it is a done deal.

Adios to you. But keep on the hilarious diatribe.

Well said tropical storm!!.Since these LTTE fellows have such fantastic lives overseas with foreign nationalities why do they need Slanka anyway..?After all they left SLanka because the "Sinhala buddist chauvenistic govt" was killing canadian/us tamils on the street right?.Or is it that these fellows are so jealous to see sinhala people immigrating those "greener" pastures that they thought were only for them since 1948?..he he he...
