Remove the shades of politics from your eyes

We have been observing some disturbing trends in Sri Lanka, even among Sri Lankans abroad with regard to the ongoing 'Humanitarian Operation' in the North.

Although the present government has made the war its exclusive domain and kept all the achievements made by young men on the battlefield to advance mostly its own political objectives, thus effectively cutting off any sharing of recent successes with opposition parties, the behaviour of certain opposition parties and groups has been pathetic to say the least. In many instances, their actions have had adverse consequences on our men.

A classic case-in-point is the actions of a political party following heavy fighting at Vannerikulam and Nachchikuda where 56 soldiers were killed and another 120 injured. The regional hospital morgues to where the remains of the dead soldiers were to be taken were full due to civilian corpses being kept on court orders for inquests.

SLA Officers in charge of the arrangements made inquiries with other much smaller hospitals in the area to keep the bodies for relatives to see until final arrangements were made. They were subsequently granted permission to keep the mortal remains of the men in the small hospitals due to the availability of space.

However, within hours of this, the officers-in-charge received a barrage of calls from persons identified with various opposition parties asking them to confirm that the Army was moving more corpses to smaller hospital morgues because the main hospital morgue had overflown with dead army corpses.

The callers, some of whom were personal friends of the officers were, by that time, convinced that the booking of additional morgues was due to a large number of casualties in the frontlines. Some had made the inquiry in glee commenting that the 'Government' was finally losing the war.

Several of these officers to whom we spoke to were devastated by this but their responses were amazing. One officer told a leading opposition politician the following;

"Sir, soldiers join the Army to die in the battlefield and not to fall off a coconut tree and die! To us, there's a difference in the way we end our lives and we have chosen the former. Our Army never grumbled about fighting when it lost 1,500 men in one night. We will not grumble now. If 4,000 of us have to die to take Kilinochchi, I am happy to be part of that 4,000 for this is why we are in the Army"

So our appeal to our readers is to take the lead in removing the shades of green, blue, red etc from our societies' mind. Urge your family and friends to have our fighting men in mind when they react to failures or even successes in the battlefield. This will help them look beyond the politics.

War is nasty and should be avoided at all cost. But at times when its necessary, be prepared to face the consequences and share both victory and defeat with others because the men who fight up there are already doing that for you.

Thank you.

Very true. An eye opener from DW!

luxman kirialla da? lol or seniviratne... kirialla is the dumb ass out of the two... seniviratne i hear is anti-government but pro war... that is good... i don't care if the government falls tomorrow if the unp (the next government) don't give away the upper hand status we as a nation have achieved over the last couple of years!

Charles said...

It is great commentary that war should not be politicize. Those in uniform gives their blood to protect our country. We should respect them no matter what political affiliation be belong to.

All our warriors are Srilankans!!!

Ares said...

machan wire,

the specialforce guy on lankanewspapers and defencenet reports that a top cat died when the intel hq was bombed a couple of days back or was it yesterday? i dont remember... anyways what does your source(s) have to say about this claim?

ares!

dhanushka said...

Thank you for the great post..

Thank you again.

Dearest Soldiers-
We salute sirs. Keep up the good work.

Defencewire said...

ares,

As you know we don't get our info from defence.lk and army.lk like some and our sources don't confirm something unless 100% sure. They cannot still comment on it because the attack was carried out just yesterday. They will not comfirm it until their sources in the area contact them. This might take a few days or weeks depending on the modus operandi established between MIC and their informants. The modus operandi could be a radio communication, information relay through a network or a personal visit to the cleared areas. Ones we receive that info, we will give you all the details. The only other way to confirm this sooner is for the Tigers to own up to the loss. Tigers have given no indication of a loss so far.

Sandun said...

100% True... The whole nation should get together in this critical moment. The people who put obstacles to this journey will be identified as TRAITORS by next generations.

Sam Perera said...

DefenceWire,

I stand for a united Sri Lanka. Regardless of the political party in power or the ethnicity, I am with my brothers and sisters in this war against LTTE terrorists. I emphasize, LTTE terrorists. Success or failure, you are part of me and I am part of you. Your loss is my loss, no second word about it. My gratitude and appreciation for the service our armed forces have rendered is absolutely profound. Regardless of the political party, I denounce anybody who tries to demoralize, demean, or deride my brothers and sisters of the armed forces of Sri Lanka.

Saman said...

Great, Well said DW,

Thankyou so much,I had an argument today about this matter with one of my idiotic friends.

I don,t care who will be in the parliment(mostly less educated,greedy,selfish bastards).Some of them ready to sell their mother even for money.

Yes Dw It was intake 18. I missed that chance.Anyway i love you all and salute you guys. This political parties have made so much against the war, because war is not done by their f..king favourite parties.
My party is my motherland.
Keep your good works Dw and SLDF.

These so called pathetic jounalist( not all) will be crying infront of you one day.

Go against the country for any reason I am not going to pardon them.

Who ever said this said it well... this is the reason why we still have what we have the little bit of freedom what left of sense of security. this is why we salute our soldiers and owe them our lives...

Red_Alert said...

well said DW.. a timely reminder.. couldn't have put it better myself!

Thambapanniya said...

PS: but we hope that none may loose the lives

Excellent post. Hope politicians have the brains to read this and the officer's comment.

Great post DW.
you guys have correct political view + correct military view.

People respect & trust SLDFs although whatever politicians are doing.

Can we copy this post in other forums we take part with due credits to you guys ?

commando said...

For me a soldier who goes to battlefield is a one who I admire moe than any other career in the world. Well said DW. You made the point clear. Let all the brothers and sisters who are in the three forces will feel our heart beat more and more!
We are with you

lankaputhra said...

Well said sir…

Bloody politicians they just want the power whatever happen…our politicians are sick... That’s why we drag this war this far many generation…no politician in SL loves mother Lanka …We need few good people … Sinhalese, Tamils or Muslims who love this country and to develop this country for the sake of 20 million people…
Just imagine what VP has done ..for the country after 1983 (UNP to be blamed as well)…he killed so many destroyed so many ..many Tamils left the country …now they send money to kill & destroy the country …after nearly 25 years of fighting what Tamils people gained ..nothing what Sinhalese and Muslims gained nothing …we as a country wasted 25 years for this bloody war..while whole world going forward….
Terrorism must be eradicated from our country as well as we all must live together.as one nation within a solution what we all can agree…

Ninja said...

It is LTTE that gave every thing to RW.

LTTE killed Rp. RW became PM aotomaticaly.
LTTE killed LailthA, GaminiD. RW became opposition leader.
LTTE attacked KAB, reversed jayasikuru. RW became PM with 'fresh peace hopes'.
So why not he expect another jayasikuru reversal and becoming the president?

To come to poweor UNP need MR to loose the war. They work on that. Tha's it.

Ali said...

I find it sad that we as a country cannot support these young kids who are laying dont their lives to make sure future generations do not have to live in fear of the tyranny of terrorism . I know of too many Sri Lankans who tend to look at this as a party issue . I suppose they would rather live under the terrorists than the other party. It makes me sick to see this .

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS AT ALL COST .

Sanjeewa said...

Well said DW Jayawewa!!!

Nilupul said...

Dear DW team,
What you have mentioned here is absolutely the truth and I also have observed these things for some time, even today, over News bulletin I saw that the pig call ‘Range Bandara’, who him self a former Policeman, saying that SLA had fired some 6000 rounds of Arty and MBRs and that has costs so much of money and other bulshit ++…
Not only that, during the attack on Vanvuniya, we saw some UNP and other pigs were jubilating as mush as Tamilnet did, lying the world that Radar was destroyed !

But one thing is clear, seem the general public have a good idea about what’s really going on and they will reply those PIGs again in correct manner soon.

Long life for our brave soldiers, we are always with you.

Have you guys seen this article by x RAW officer Raman. I thought He doesn't like LTTE but now he sounds like He does. May be He was bought over by Black Money that comes from Swiss and Canada. He says SLAF is not trust worthy and LTTE is.
No wonder why they killed Rajeev.

Politics and war - here is the truth

DW

Do you think after reading your article RW or Kariella or other UNPers will change their mind?

Beleive me that will not happen. Also, strong UNP karayas (kapuwath kola) also follow the leader. Expecting (verbal) support for war from UNP is simply not realistic.

UNP will critisize MR/GR/BR/GenSF etc and also MR's war effort, methods and demoralize public and soldiers by taking use of each and every possible incedent. This is what we need to expect and react accordingly.

So the public (floating voters) reacted very 'accordingly' in the last election we just need to it will previel until war is end.

[RW blame on SLDF to become president, Karialla etc do the same to get high profile misiter posts, and to become 'veerya', 'kapee penda' etc.]
__________________________________________________

BTW, How many of us donate to atleast 'api venuven api'? But these LTTE diaspora, like 'ass in' come here after paying the tax.

Kaavalan said...

Finally something worthy from DefenceWire...

We are with you, and as Tamils, we will also look at our soldiers beyond any lables that you may put on them.

Respect to my brothers!

Tamil Eelam, is the only answer... and time will come for all of you to accecept, and live in harmony!

Till then, we will meet again and again in the the battle field.

Cheers!

TigerKiller said...

"Tamil Eelam, is the only answer... and time will come for all of you to accecept, and live in harmony!"

That is never going to Happen . our kings for last 2500 years didn't allow it to happen . So defineatly meeting in the battfiled is part of our Nation that was doing for last 2500 . We will do it forever no matter what is the cost is

phaedrus said...

Wonderful article DW. It may not reach the UNP politicians, but it will touch those that matter, the people who care about our country.

Here I am in UK without a job at the moment but I still donate something to the 'Api wenuwen api' fund when I can. Once I get another job, hope to make regular contributions. It's time we realised that at long last, our military is actually allowed to finish this war, rather than being used as pawns in games of stupid politicians.

If MR achieves nothing more than this victory in his time at the office, I think most people would consider it enough of an achievement.

As for our troops, one lifetime won't be enough to repay them for the sacrifices they are making.

Btw, I am going to send links to this articles to all my friends through email. I hope others do the same.

Corey said...

The quote from the soldier in the above article is very impressive. This article should be quoted all over the world. Politicians everywhere can learn from it,if they are smart and are humble enough to realize their own shortcomings. But, the situation appears to be the same all over the world: the opposition politicians wait for their own armed forces to be killed in action, to make a big hoo-hah about this for their own political gains.

Nihara said...

DW,
Well said and an excellent post.

thanks!!

We, as Sri Lankans owe it to our defence forces & their families forever, for their great sacrifice !

Hela said...

They say, war is an extention of politics. Therefore, we have to accept some form of political interference in conducting the war.

However, the interference should not be detrimental to the military objectives set and agreed. There must be sufficient space for professional soldiers to implement strategies to achieve the agreed objectives. Politician do not possess the required skill & knowledge and therefore they should stay out of the strategy implementation.

War always results in death & destruction. Gains & reversals. No one should use these circumstances to advance their parochial political agendas.

I have never seen opposition politicians working in any other country like the Sri Lankan opposition that is so detrimental to the their national interest (and the lives of it's citizens including the soldiers)in a war situation.

All patriots are urged to resist and oppose with their full might all such parochial politics and continue to defeat them at elections until they change their behavior.

Well said DW. Keep your good work up.

Moshe Dyan said...

thanks DW.

i blame this on MoD although it is NO FAULT of theirs!

treason is an offence punishable by SEVERE forms of punishments and supporting terrorism is another offence again having SEVERE punishments. on a third count, supporting, promoting, etc. separatism is yet another offence once again with SEVERE punishments.

i'm not done yet. then there is the CONSTITUION that specifies in GREAT DETAIL the typ of conduct (especially from politicians) that is punishable.

spreadin unsubstantiated claims that have a bearing on national security is another crime.

so there are at least 5 avenues to punish traitors, separatists, their abettors and the like.

so far this has not been done apart from a very few cases. without exploiting ALL the avenues LEGALLY there is no point blaming the CRIMINALS. of course we know these traitors are sons and daugheters of swines and bitches.

IF wrong doers (a large number of them) were punished, even small acts of treason (as in the given example) would not happen.

so i recon the FIRST thing we need is for the MoD and connected agencies to seek legal remedies in PUNISHING ALL TRAITORS WITHOUT regard to politics. if they can't do it they are also at fault.

OTOH people like tissanayagam with MUCH lesser crimes are bashed using legal provisions. it is good anyway but why not extened it to others?????

how many times anyone was taken to courts on violation of section 157A, sixth amendment to the constitution?????

pleading/begging/explaining/reasoning these traitors to toe the line will NEVER work. they know it already! there should be HARD DEPENDABLE LEGAL action.

Navindran said...

Defencewire, the politicians started this war. Its the only way they survive. It all depends on which side they are on.

The worst is people who betray their course. It so common in Sri Lanka. Example is the UNP guys humiliate the SLFP or JVP and when they switch over they become angels. First these guys have to be matured to move away from the scene and leave politics alone.

In the same light I see the ex-LTTErs as pathethic. Yes some people champion them because they are useful. However these guys were stupid enough to follow the movement, now they feel they should take their revenge by being on the other side. Thats why I dont like Karuna. I guess idiots like him should have died in the battlefield and they would at least have some dignity. Now the tamils looks at him as a traitor and hes not wanted by the people he thought he would help.

Lastly like the UNPers, these ex LTTErs should also be punished. It shameful that they roam around the street without any punishment for their past sins.

Navindran said...

Mahindha is a a lossy leader and that should be stated. As yet he has done nothing to improve the country's foreign policy, economic situation. Hence stop blaming the opposition alone.

"Sir, soldiers join the Army to die in the battlefield and not to fall off a coconut tree and die! To us, there's a difference in the way we end our lives and we have chosen the former. Our Army never grumbled about fighting when it lost 1,500 men in one night. We will not grumble now. If 4,000 of us have to die to take Kilinochchi, I am happy to be part of that 4,000 for this is why we are in the Army"

Is a nice qoute but most soldiers can dillusioned the moment they step into camp for training. Firstly they see the bias against them. They see the romance is lost and often at the end of the day they wonder for who and why they are fighting.

Its the same with the Ex-Tigers, the romance of the struggle is lost. Getting to do extra duty because your superior does not like your face or getting to clean the toilet while some get time off. Being stuck with weekend duty while the others are gone out for a break.

The politicians in Sri Lanka are shameless. I challenge the bloggers whether they would lead a campaign wherby a person can only be a minister if he has been a unifromed person of if his immediate family member is a uniformed (soldier, policeman).

Can you defend the likes of Mervyn and the other goons in SLFP. Why are there no condemnation of them. The opposition in any country plays an important role. Its a fact that the SLFP has been hiding certain information to the public. If the opposition is hurling such accqusitions then action should be taken to prove them otherwise.

You are not revealing military secrets by accounting for the dead instead of declaring them MIA. You are respecting their scarifices. SLFP has shamelessy baked in the victory of the soldiers. Likewise UNP would if it was in pwoer (no doubt).

The politicians need to be changed and bright people need to come forward to take the challenge. Instead of hiding and saying you are patroits, you should do your duty by destroying the people who are destroying the country.

Lion777 said...

DW,

I think well said and well presented. I will send this to all my friends and I expect all peace loving Sri Lankan to do the same.

I think we need unity.

For the past 25 years, in south, many people and political parties won and lost elections and saw new faces in the south but not in the north. Main reason was everyone didn’t pull together to take out this cancer from the society. What I felt was some political parties and leaders, for them, this was not about winning or loosing, it was about their survival.

J.R, R. P. and finally C.B.K. came and gone. They have achieved their goals, but couldn’t find a solution for this. If you think, all the political leaders’ sons/daughters were well educated abroad.
Same with the VP. His family and kids were given the best education and his close confidants got the best out of the situation. Only difference is, he is still in charge. He runs by bullet not by ballot.

If you really think of it, people who could not standup for them were given a raw deal. Because, I believe, both LTTE and Government needed this war to survive not the ordinary people like you and us.

To be honest, when MR took over this government, I felt it was another chapter. Now, it is a reality than any day that we can see to and end to this episode. I am tired and sad to see our valuable resources (both sides) wasted like this.
Hence, what I ask everyone is to keep aside petty politics and help SL to stand-up on its own feet as a united country.

DW, our readers are no fools. On the judgment day, I am sure they will make a good choice above Green, Blue or Red. I hope our Tamil brothers and sisters in North will have the same rights to select their own preferred person to represent them soon rather than later.



Thanks to DW for noble service and reminding us of our obligations as Sri Lankan

Navindran said...

I do not think Raman is tricked. I guess some people underestimate him. Remeber he was Additional Secretary, Cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India plus a RAW man. DO you think he is not getting information fed to him. The classic example was his rapid response to the attack becuase two indian technicians were involved.
I guess he took the opportunity to blow the cover of the Naval Intelligence defence blog.

I see the benifits of having a blog run by inteligence. One they get some ideas from the public (unintended), two they can come across as being geninue and that start spewing propaganda to counter LTTE propaganda. Especially Tamil Dispora and Sri Lankan Public who trust internet sources more than the news from the goverment defence sites.

They reflecte this frustration when Tamilnet was blocked. The site was jammed due to both the tamil dispora and Sri lankan public going to the site during the AAB attack.

It usually fails if the actual events unfold differently and the people who trusted it intially begin to doubt it.

Navindran said...

Raman and DBS JEYRAJ have a style where they praise the LTTE and at the last moment say oh the army will still win the war. Its sad becuase it shows they do not want to lose their informats. Raman has an Indian Agenda and its only to favour India. Everyone writes with an Agenda.

Mine is simple. Stop bickering on who started the problem. There is a problem, solve it. Stop beleiving the actors on both sides of this drama. There are two many people who benifit from the war.

Someone asked me how the war can be won without shedding blood.

First remove the official religon language stuff. Make English compulsory for all students for all subjects except language and literature. All students must learn sinhalese and tamil. In the years to come promotion to the next level can only be attained after passing each other languages.

This should be done without bias (not scoring the other race lower etc).Poltical Parties cannot be race or religous based. No more TNA, no more JHU. Serve action taken against people inciting hatred of any kind.

A truth and reconcilation council with people from both sides facing the punishment. Example Prabha, Mahindha can be found guilty for crimes and face the death penalty but the sentce be suspended. It might not be the justice many want but in the long run it will be the justice that will make Sri Lanka return to her former glory.

wijayapala said...

Navindran,

I think I should shed some light on Mr. B. Raman. He belongs to the old fossil generation of Indira Gandhi that believes that Indian security can only be assured when its neighbors are unstable. This is the "mandala" theory of the ancient Indian Brahmin Chanakya, and B. Raman is a Chanakya-wannabe.

This theory turned into disaster in Sri Lanka when the Indians built up the LTTE only to get slaughtered and humiliated by the LTTE, and then watch their PM get blown up. The younger generation learned the lesson but not fossils like B. Raman who still quietly hopes that the Eelam War will continue to eat SL alive.

Remember Navindran, there is no fool like an old fool. B. Raman is living evidence of the low quality of the Indian Research and Analysis Wing (what more can we say about an organization that ultimately killed its own head of govt.??????).

wijayapala said...

Sorry, didn't see your last post Navindran,

"First remove the official religon language stuff."

First of all, Sri Lanka does not have an official religion, and in any case that did not cause the war.

Second of all, Tamil is acknowledged as a national language, but admittedly too late to stop the war.

Third of all and most importantly, **how would either of these changes make the LTTE disappear????**

ARACHCHIGE said...

I am sick of these UNP politicians, Ranil, Tissa Attnayaka, Luxman Kiriella etc who have love for the country. They wait until the army suffers even a slight setback and gleefully seek the opportunity to attack the govt. The most recent example is their behavior after the recent LTTE attempt to break into the Vauniyava Security Force HQ. Down with these traitors!

Navindran said...

I wanted to post this last week but I waited to see and I guess the so call patriots and none political or non-inteligence agenda blogs would do it. None did.

Corporal Gamini Kularatne PWV, (September 4, 1966 - July 14, 1991) birthday was last week. Yet nobody thought even to post a reminder, an article on him. Thats why I tell the romance of the war eludes the soldier. Everyone says we are serving the army or the LTTE for the betterment of our people. Yet when the people who actually live true to those words are often forgotten.

Being forgotten is the greatest punishment you can give to people like him. To an extend the LTTE gives more recongniton to its people. I guess thats required for a rebel organisation to recruit and survive.

No road or camp is named after him. I do not why some generals are given the award in his same league. Last year I made the same call on his family like whether his mother was doing well a fund in his name etc. Hopefully a offering of food in a temple in his name, a scholarship for a poor student in his name can be carried out.

Observer said...

Very Well said DW !

Petty politics has been the reason why we failed as a nation in the past. Now MAY BE it is coming to an end.

In the past previous SL governments fought the war ONLY for political gain. Now we Sri Lankans can be relieved, because we know for sure at least the top most leaders (MR,GR,SF) of the country has a genuine commitment to end the war. We should protect these gentlemen at any cost.

However I believe that by looking at the way the country goes, 100 odd ministers ( May be except for Karu Jayasuriya, Dallas Alahapperuma and a very few more )are still a burden/curse to the motherland.

Navindran said...

wijayapala you are removing LTTE's motivation, gist of their need for struggle. Indian counter insurgency realised this in theoir own countries. Raman still holds respect else he would not be called to write articles.

deborak said...

To ares

laxman kiriella once said that "ona gonekuta uddhaya karanna puluwan" means that "any cow or bull can do the war". This is the state of the UNP. Now afe the loss of the NCP polls he is saying that the present government sold the war and won the elections. What a pathetic bunch of politicians these morans are. I do not whether anybody have forgotten, when their leader ranil signed the CFA, what happened to the pride of our country, we lost. These stupid morans made our army to kneel in front of a bunch of terrorists who will sell their mother even to the norwegians.

Guys remembe the millenium city betrayel regarding our LRRP operations. I will never forgot that traitory act by the UNP along with the that police Kossa "udugampola" in Kandy. The commision which was setup by the then president to make a report how was this was exposed, reported that this was highest betrayel could be done to Sri Lanka and the police and the army officers should be punished for this act.

DW If you have got info I want you to remind the the guys so that we can erase this UNP for ever.

By the way Austin Fernando who was the Defence Secretary with no knowledge of any military matters, not served in the army in any form, made and army officer to attend the meeting with the terrorists with his uniform. This was the state of the then defence secretary. These morans should be punished with similar punishements carried-out by Arabian countries.

To: kaavalan,,As the tigerkiller says, go and read the history. Wehave never lost a war against the "SOLIN" solin means the invaders from south india. I repeat go and read the history of Sri Lanka. There will be no eelam, but as a Sinhala speaking Sri Lankan we are do want to throw the tamil speaking Sri Lankans out of our country just becuase they are speaking tamil.
This is Sri Lanka and it was written 2500 years before and a country which boasts a history of 2500 years, do you think will their citizens will allow some vp and his canibals to divide this country.

deborak said...

Sorry I have a made a mistake and I aplogize for the followinf sentence.

"Sri Lankan we are do want to throw the tamil speaking Sri Lankans out of our country just becuase they are speaking tamil."

It should be as "we do not want to throw the tamil speaking sri lankas out of our country just becuase they speak tamil".

DW I am sorry, and will check my next comments before I publish.

Moshe Dyan said...

there is NO justifcation for LTTE MFs "liberation struggle".

that has killed and destroyed what they planned to "liberate" more than anything else.

its time to accept defeat not only for the LTTEbut also for ALL racist-demands.

like someone said they couldn't get it through democracy, they couldn't get it through satyagrahas, they couldn't get it militarily either.

this is the fcuking reality. accept it or die. govt's message is VERY clear.

the other bullshit is root causes OF ROOT CAUSES!!

root cause of terrorism is terrorists, fullstop. there are other problems that should be solved seperately.

Sri Lanka said...

Very painful to see the para with bold colour. All Sri Lankans admire you all for your dedication & commitment.

I am sure you can liberate rest of the area without much damage.

Hope my brave soldiers will come to Nilawali beach with their kids to enjoy the victory very soon.

TWO OPTIONS FOR THE SL GOVERNMENT

Problem: UN leader Ban Ki-moon has expressed alarm over escalating strife between Government troops and rebels in northern Sri Lanka and reminded the parties of their obligations to ensure the safety of civilians.

GOSL response: it is astonished at the statement made by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon "in which he seems to be expressing concerns about recent military activities in Sri Lanka."

LTTE (through Tamilnet.com): “Ban Ki-moon 'helping LTTE' – Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka’s hardline government Thursday criticised United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for expressing deep concern about Tamil civilians in the Vanni region. Sri Lankan human rights ministry official Rajiva Wijesinghe told reporters that there were no civilian casualties in the Colombo government’s ongoing offensive and that the UN Chief’s comments were helping the LTTE.

Now if our Government was not so corrupt and want so full of nepotism maybe the response could have been:

“The president of Sri Lanka yesterday fully endorsed the statement made by the Secretary General of the United Nations concerning the possibility of a humanitarian disaster in the north of the country. The Sri Lankan government is able to provide clear evidence that it maintained a cessation of hostilities at a number of key transition points to assist IDPs to escape hostilities. Furthermore, the SL Government has successfully displayed unprecedented attempts to minimize civilian casualties and collateral damage in the current offensive.

The government together with the UN Secretary General promotes the revitalization of the effort to revise the current procedural systems.

Superb post DW well said. I will post this link to all my friends and maybe it will get through to the right forum that it is meant for....!

Amma Gahai/Gahawi said...

Navindran: Seems like u got lot of time in ur hand to fill the blog with what u think is correct. Hope u have a job or go to school too!

Anyway, If u want to learn how to put ur argument or point in a short and sweet manner pls red wijayapal’s reply to u.

Yesterday, bandara the fool was trying to tell me to that “old Sinhala philosophy “ was incorrect but he was trying prove that “old Tamil philosophy” is correct.

That’s what wrong with most of u guys. U guys act like most of the married women (no disrespect to women or married women as general)! U wingh, wingh, wingh!!! trying to prove that other half is wrong and ur correct so other half must believe what u believe is correct!

U r so one-eyed and kinda dumb too! I am not the brightest case but I am moderate and broad minded.

“Mahindha is a a lossy leader” (lossy ? or lousy ???anyway) but u don’t talk about how narrow minded and uncompromising and resists VP is. U recon SL Army is dillusioned (correct word?? Anyway) but denied most of the LTTE fighters are kids and forcibly recruited and brain washed.

Nothing wrong with Karuna changing teams mate. It is his will and vision and his born right! Even u can change ur mind mate. U don’t have to blindly follow VP or Eelam dream.

Nothing wrong asking for a 2 acres of ur own but for everything there is an expiry date!

Ofcoz, Sri Lankan politicians are scums. Not only Sinhala politicians are bad mate, but also Tamil and Muslim politicians and also LTTE administration too. So, don’t blame Sinhalese for every thing. U guys were to blame for a half too!

U guys still blame “Sinhala only policy” for all the hard ship u got. I t was only in legislation from 1956 to 1970. In Australia, “White only policy” ran from 1901 to 1973 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Australia_policy)

People make mistakes and learn from that and improve and move on. That’s the only way to evolve and survive.

These r ur own words :

“The politicians need to be changed and bright people need to come forward to take the challenge. Instead of hiding and saying you are patroits, you should do your duty by destroying the people who are destroying the country”

So…Navindran… r u up for the challenge my friend??? When r u going to challenge LTTE administration or LTTE politicians who are destroying the country???

Oh… sorry… u don’t care about the whole country…. U only care about ur mono ethnic, resists 2 acres!

What is this that i hear from my sources that the SLA is relocating their HQ from vuvuniya to mannar, if it wasn't destroyed then you should ask yourselves what the reason for this is.

This article is for those with a conscience, civilian, military person or politician it does not matter, as long as he/she has a conscience. We are not interested in changing corrupt individuals, We are interested in our readers, those that have continuously demonstrated they are intelligent. Look beyond colours, politics and race and see the war in its true light. If you don't like it, do something about it.

thiru,
unless your source was from intake 4 of the SLMA, i wouldn't take it seriously.

We are really very unhappy about Indian 'experts' comments, specially when they couldn't even guard their Prime Ministers twice over. Many Indian military men have lost confidence in them. RAW is the worst intelligence organization this part of the globe.

Defencewire said...

deborak,

The millennium city exposure was a sad one but many other cells that were doing the same thing remained underground and continue in the Vanni to this day. in a way, the exposure of one preserved many others.

It was about a greedy cop's desire to get a promotion quick and fast. some army personnel were also to blame. they had chit chatted that a group of Tamils were being trained in the use of MBRL. Udugampola picked it up from there and made it look as if the army was planning to assassinate the Pm and make it look like LTTE.

The LRRP guys caught were kept in inhumane conditions inside a cell. the stench of the toilet nearby was so bad. some policemen would address them in filth, an LRRP said. They thought why they deserved this treatment. When we first visited them, their only request was a mobile phone to call their families.

It is also sad that many committed Tamils died in the process.

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Chaminda,

Very nice diplomatic reply.

However, it miss one of the key points of taking the opportunity to elaborate that LTTE is forcibly retaining civilians to be used as a Human Shield against their will.

Ban Kee Moon is a highly misled person. He is the one who has dumbly signed a Statement of Condolence of a fallen LTTE terrorist.

The UN has been infiltrated by the LTTE terrorists as with the AI, Redcross etc. Nut Ban Kee Moon being a dumb a*s does not know about it.

Dear Bloggers,
I really value DW as a source..

MR or RW or VP will never see the stuff you write.. all of you who write here are converts on one way or the other.. so can you convert the converted??

deborak said...

DW,

Thanks. Yes I was following all the our military vitories and debacles from the day it started. I was enthusiastically following Athas's articles reading the situation report and regarding this millenium city saga and I very well remember he was crying foul.Since then he has become a FAIRY Story teller. I guess you are reading those just read his recent articles, the scope is out of the target.
So guys, What I want to say is that many people have forgotten this episode of betryal by the UNP. Juts imajine what will be the situation of Sri Lanka in case if ranil comes to power, tell me. Why people elected MR's ruling party in NCP elections. The normal public thinks they got their pride back after our armed forces hammered this terrorists. With lot of pride they say that our army commander is General Sarath Fonseka, why he brought our loss fame back to our country. And this what we didn't have during the UNP regime. People pride themselves by the achievements of our armed forces. The normal public thinks that when our armed forces brings victory our country there is a saviour. One blogger has written that MR is lousy, but I ask that friend to tell me, can you name any leader who was bold enough to take decisionn as President MR, not bowing to International pressure.

First the country, then her security then comes the other buisness. We have to I am saying again, without defeating LTTE militarily we won't be able to earn peace for ever. Our brave forces can do it and have faith.

Panhinda said...

Calvin said...

This is exactly what we need to say..! well said..

Saman said...

DW,

I was reading Divaina today and saw that UNP f.... idiot Range Bandara making some noice about Indian radar operators injured during the Vanni HQ attack. These F...ng idiots have no sence about this war. Any country in the world get experts service if req. During Kargil war India openly got Israel experts with them. Now this idiot making noise, i am pretty sure these idiots are afraid if this war is won by Mahinda they know they have no way to convince public about anything.

Evev US military has sent some teams to find out how we handle some critical situations. Then they adopt these things in their military training.This is the pathetic political situation our country face now.This party politics have destroyed our country.We are trying our level best to educate people,but these things are in their genes.Its very difficult. This why some of the people whom i was talking, they say they don,t believe AF shooting down Zlin unless they see any photo.My foot.
This is why i mentioned in previous article our breed in giving trouble to our country. More over the education system. JR removed history out from syllabus.American have only 250 plus years history.They are so proud of it.But look at us, we have 2500 plus years history.But how many sinhalayas learning it now and proud of it.Now the parants wants what???? remember this no history, no nation. That's why LTTE is paying lot of money to change the SL history desperatly.

Evev some people living/residing out side the country so proud to say their children cannot speak sinhalese,but they are only good with English.Sinhalese only spoken by sinhalayas in this tiny beautiful island in this green planet. I am so proud the Voyeger 1 and 2 travelled out from our solar system got recording in my language.Let hope one day intelligent aliens pick it up.

My only request is leave all differances.Give our full back up win this as we could(even by a word).When we have peaceful country. Then we can do anything everything we can along with our Tamil/Muslim/Burger/Malay bros and sis's.

After this we have to find a solution which all races can live peacefully equally in one country. Their shouldn'd be a solution giving one race a atonomy than other.That's not going solve this problem.

Apino said...

Thanks DW for highlighting this issue. Actually its long overdue. Well said we will do our best towards this.

"shoot first, ask questions later"

for far too long our nation has been answering to opposition parties, the international community, ngos, the churches..

fuck the lot of them. i would support an unjust but firm govt, over a hog tied and whipped govt. let someone get the job done. if the opposition parties, or press, or international ngos are unhappy..suck eggs. the day we say "enough is enough" is the day we grow up as a proud sinhala nation.

*notice i said sinhala nation. when we smash the tigers you can bet your balls the tamils in this country wont be happy about it. why would they? some of our sinhala idiots think victory against the tigers and harmony with the tamils is mutually possible. HA!! Keep dreaming. We might be idealistic idiots but they surely are not.

grow up idiots.

jiffy said...

blood is thicker than water. and to tamils the sinhalese will always be water. we're doing no favours to ourselves by supporting any kind of concession to the tigers. to even allow a minor concession is to say that their cause had legitimacy..which accurate or otherwise is not important now. first shoot. then ask questions.

MrBrown said...

[Sir, soldiers join the Army to die in the battlefield and not to fall off a coconut tree and die! To us, there's a difference in the way we end our lives and we have chosen the former. Our Army never grumbled about fighting when it lost 1,500 men in one night. We will not grumble now. If 4,000 of us have to die to take Kilinochchi, I am happy to be part of that 4,000 for this is why we are in the Army" ]

I dont know how is it true. One thing I can tell you, If you offer a Rs20000/month a job to all soldiers and ask them whether they want to be in the army, they would just go for 20,000Rs job. I am sure. Otherwise why do we have high deserting rate even now. as u all know we have more than 15,000 derserted in less than 2 yrs and more 60,000 deserted during whole war period. what does it suppose to mean you all. Actually only poor people are dying for money i am certain not for country. May be only very few. All the rich are working as officers and they rarely die in the battle feild. SO guys dont cheat urseflf and others.
if 50,000 people can desert army without any job offer how much will be deserted if you give them a job offer with 20,000Rs...guys come to the real world and do mathematics....;-) answer never can be a negative one..lol..;-)

vanni's economy is worth over USD 250 million and has the potential (without using its VAST UNTOUCHED resources) of over USD 350 million IMMEDIATELY following capture.

war is also about saving this 2.35 BILLION.
]]
This is what I said..dont cheat urself and others. If u are a true patriot, why didnt u join SLA and save counrty..because u have enough money and job. if u offer the same job to each soldiers. they will be like u behind the computer screen and writing u like a true patriot and there will be no one to fight. thats the true nature buddy..

Show some class, guys. Hurling insults at each other just increases this boiling hatred towards each other. If you feel so intensly about each of your respective sides, go join the fighters in the north instead of writing crap on the internet.
As I have indicated previously, this assasinrajive appears to be mentally deranged, and joining him in his 'fight' with insults would make you just as low-down as him.

Mr Brown,
War is not for everybody but if you are in the army and like it, you will never leave. It is this caliber of persons the Army seeks. Even if 15,000 people have left (not very sure about the numbers. Several thousand rejoined actually), for a army like ours, its not such a big deal. We now have 7 offensive divisions with more to come in addition to several holding divisions. This is more than enough for this war.

I think Total desertation is well above 50,000. U might refute this claim. It was very high during Jeyasikuru and then at peak during Elepahantpass battle. I dont see any difference even now since we have around 15,000( more than 12,000 is accepted by defence spokeperson)I am sure the rate is same even. May be people like u r dealing with high ranking officers who rarely have participated in a close range battele and rarely have undergone ordinary soldiers hardship. Almost all of these odinary soldiers are joined because of money except very few who might have affected by LTTE in the border villages and ofcourse very few with patriotic intentions.

u have mentioned that ' u r in the army and u like it u never leave''

it is good to note that..i still wonder and wonder what happened to Gotabaya then? u mean to say he did not like it..;-( over to you..DW lol

Sam Perera said...

Mr brown as you call yourself,
Have you ever lived among Sri Lankans in the south? It seems not by the way you perceive Sinhalese. Patriotism is high up there, in every corner of the country. People from the Southern Province have bailed the country from invaders many times, and two times most significantly from Chola invaders. People in the Central Province held up against western invaders until the collapse of Sinhala Dynasty. As far as our determination, no place in the country is less patriotic than the others. Currently, the country is headed by a southerner. Unless, you have ever lived there, you would never know the patriotism in that part of the country. It is a very uplifting to see how most of the people think in utmost patriotism when it comes the sovereignty of the country. Of course, there are some scumbags like Lakshman Kiriella and Jayalath Jayawardana who are destined to be in the garbage bins of Sri Lankan histoy.

wijayapala said...

Navindran,

"wijayapala you are removing LTTE's motivation, gist of their need for struggle."

You raise a great point which I will be happy to answer. The LTTE and its support base as you know is not a single entity but rather a place where different interests meet. We can divide these interests/motivations into 3 sections:

1) LTTE rank & file: The LTTE's fighting forces revolve around the child soldier- without the child soldier there simply would be no Tiger army. Children are ideal for the LTTE because they are a) easily trained/indoctrinated, b) cannot easily desert the organization, c) do not have the problems of adults that would divide the organization, such as caste or class consciousness, and d) easily replaceable.

Kaati gave a great explanation why people join the LTTE- to gain a sense of control over one's existence, revenge, or simply that they are forcibly recruited.

2) LTTE leadership/poruppalar: these are for the most part the pure scumbags who see this war as a means of gaining power and profit. They are living in relative luxury while the average Tamil starves. Their motivation is pure greed and power-hunger.

3) Diaspora LTTE-supporters: originally they backed the LTTE out of a sense of revenge over the humiliations/suffering caused by the JR government, but gradually many of them have gained a sense of entitlement and chauvinist pride, particularly when the LTTE was beating the government forces. Many of this group do not give a damn about the suffering in SL- just like how the LTTE leadership is in for power, the diaspora supporters are in for "patriotism."

"Indian counter insurgency realised this in theoir own countries."

Actually the IPKF experience represented the total failure of Indian counterinsurgency in a context outside of India. Indian counterinsurgency ("sub-conventional operations") theory places a great deal of importance on "hearts and minds" as opposed to brute force. Their goal is not to destroy the rebels outright, but rather to coopt or bribe them. This approach worked with the Naga insurgents in NE India, with somewhat less success in Kashmir and Punjab.

This theory was a total flop in Sri Lanka because the LTTE was not interested at all in cutting a political deal. The LTTE interpreted the Indians' limited use of force as a sign of weakness and simply put up a tougher fight, while diplomatically outflanking the Indians by chumming up with Karunanidhi and Premadasa.

"Raman still holds respect else he would not be called to write articles."

He only holds respect among similar fossils/ignoramuses in the Indian pundit class (of whom there are many). As long as Indian leaders have advisors like him, India will remain a backward power unable to really hold a dominant position in the region. After all, it is the "Raman/RAW approach" that drove SL into the arms of China and Pakistan.

LTTE's Image Editing Capability - Exposed! 2

LiveAndLetLive said...

When we know for a fact that state organs such as the Daily News, Defence.lk are lying about casualties, When we know that the independent media is covertly and overtly threatened not to publish the facts. Is it a crime for a concerned citizen to try to find out what the real cost of this war is? It would be great if we can win this war but it all depends on the price of victory and how many lives we are prepared to sacrifice for each acre of land regained from the LTTE. All Sri Lankans love their brother citizens. They also love their country. In this war we are being forced to make a choice between the two. We need to weigh the loss of life against area regained and each one of us has a different opinion of how many lives an acre of land is worth. The hawkes are prepared to sacrifice very many lives but the doves place more value on lives and less on land. So thats the difference here. Is it more patriotic to support the war regardless of the casualties or is it more patriotic to be prepared to give a bit of our land in order to save a few of our brothers? The answer depends on one's own personal set of values.

What if the current offensive runs out of steam and lives before all the land is regained? Like so many times before? What if we cant feed and educate our people because we have spent all our reserves on the war? These are questions all Sri Lankans need answers to and that is why we need to know how many people are dying. It is therefore dishonest and perverse that the govt routinely misrepresents these figures to its electorate.

I am not denying that some cynical politicians could be rejoicing whenever an SLA division gets wiped out. But this is true of both sides. The SLFP including MR and CBK tried everything possible to stop the UNP from ending the war and always voted against extending emergency law during UNP rule.

Is it therefore not wiser to offer the LTTE a deal where they can live independently while at the same time ensuring that the rights and entitlements of the other communities are preserved? I say this because not one Sinhalese depends on the land we are currently shedding blood over. So why not just build a wall or trench or mine field or all three along the current front line, withdraw from Jaffna and let the LTTE take it and live in it as they please.

“Is it more patriotic to support the war regardless of the casualties or is it more patriotic to be prepared to give a bit of our land in order to save a few of our brothers? The answer depends on one's own personal set of values.”

We as a nation have survived for 2,500 year all thanks to the countless sacrifices made by brave men and women in the history. I owe my existence to great heroes like Prince Gamini and Prince Kirthi of Lanka. Without the efforts they made, my heritage could have been wiped out in to thin air. I am profoundly grateful that there were brave men and women behind such great men to save my yesterday. Similarly, I am profoundly grateful to the heroes of today who fights valiantly to preserve territorial integrity of my homeland.

You sound more like a LTTE propaganda team member than a spineless supporter of Ranil Wickramasingha – Lakshman Kiriella group of buffoons. If not, Liveandletlive, I am ashamed by spineless monkeys like you who try to deride and demoralize our soldiers. People like you are destined to be in the garbage bins of Sri Lankan history. Please correct your ways or prepare yourself for your journey to the garbage bin.

This is indeed a good way to end the conflict. Would the LTTE ever be satisfied with controlling the north only however? What about the rest of the Eelam map Vehzha Pillaiz stands in front of? Would he or whoever takes over, pursue the original goal of North and the East homeland? Even if some sort of agreement is arrived at, what is to stop them building their military assets yet again in order to capture the east? By stopping the war now, aren't we simply offsetting another conflict into the future?

Furthermore, you could also re-phrase the question and ask LTTE why they cannot simply give up weapons since Tamils are suffering. Why aren't you doing that?

he said that most of the deserters are old... during the late 90 the desertion was high... some of them never returned to ranks... desertion in the current phrase of the war is pretty low... i don't have numbers... he doesn't either... its a big army.... but he says he think there isn't more than 5 may be 6 thousand in physical condition to fight.

right now we dont have a manpower problem unlike the ltte!

again i say worry about your casualties and your desertions.... we will worry about ours!

Saman said...

Sam,
I agree with you.It is more than 2500 years. From king Rawana's time.War is not a scary thing for our nation. Our history is full of brave men and women.We survived more than 2500 years.We have only this country. If others cannot live peacefully. They can find another place to live.Let us live here peacefully.
Leave this party politics aside. Extend you fullest support for our heros. As some argue, for me you don,t have to be soldier to save your country.As Dw says our heros fighting up for us.Give them moral support.Let them know we are with them. Don't show your pathetic party oriented cheap mentality. If these heros did not fight for last 30 years.We are history by now.

If you know history. Please don't insult your motherland keep your mouth shut.Its better than demoralizing our heros.

Defencewire said...

mr brown,

So according to your estimates Gotabhaya deserted ranks???

We are dealing with two things here brown.desertion is leaving the Army without due process or overstaying your leave. To my understanding, Gotabhaya didn't do neither.

It is customary for some officers to leave the forces utilizing due process. Many have done it by showing cause (i.e. personal reasons, change of career etc etc)If the officer is replaceable or senior in age (past point of mid career) they can negotiate terms of leaving the force legitimately.

It is obvious to me that you don't know what you are talking about. If you don't know the internal workings of an Army, you really shouldn't imagine things on your own!

There are many ways of lawful discharge from service without having yourself DO-ed.

The Commander or Sec Def, at his discretion may make decisions on individual officers, even soldiers if shown legitimate reasons. A classic example was a friend of mine who almost was asked to retire because his mother wrote to the Commander requesting discharge of the son because he was their only guardian. This was at the height of massive battles in the north over a decade ago. The CO of the officers unit came to his house and met the mother and pleaded with her because this officer was irreplaceable and he himself did not wish to leave the Army. The mother then withdraw her letter.

if the LTTE fake photos and hide something from the world, so whats the big fucking deal about it?

you guys are keep banging on about they are terrorist and tamilnet is lieing and all sort of things.but then again you type tamil net to get the right information or the true events about any attack, as you all know the Srilankan state media or any other sources are unable to deliver the highest quality report of those events at any point.

ie: it took the Srilankan state more than 10 years to accept 1500 SL soldiers perished in the Killinochi army camp attack.

so we better focus on what is best can be achieved to stop this ongoing war.

Lion777 said...

DW,

Unfortunately for Sri Lanka, VP was never serious about peace for the last 2 decades as he wouldn’t settle for anything less than Tamil Elam. Then the million dollar question is where we should draw the border of Tamil Elam.

In any sovereign state, border is very important and it’s a direct national security issue. This is why any state is bound to secure their borders at any cost.

If you take any county whether it is a republic or kingdom, only one party could carry firearms. When the moment any other party could carry firearms without going unchallenged, you cannot expect to maintain law and order in that county. If anyone carries weapons, other than security forces, that will eventually lead to violence.


In 1989, according to unofficial figures, more than 60,000 (this could be more than 100,000) youths were killed during the JVP uprising by the SL armed forces. As an Independent state, one county, only one party should carry arms. It doesn’t matter which cause they are fighting for. (I would like to remind everyone, by then, where was those so called International community. They didn’t talk about Human Rights in SL in 1989. Why…..because it was an internal affair. )

Even this situation is not far from that. No matter what concerns/grievances LTTE and its supporters may have, they cannot run or win a county or homeland by force without having serious consequences in regional and international level.

Hence, one day, this was destined to fail as odds are far greater. I feel, what we are seeing today is the end of the tunnel. I wish we could see it sooner than later as it will end enormous suffering to all ethnic communities in Sri Lanka.

LTTE could kill innocent civilians to terrorize masses, but, can any of the armed forces use these tactics against LTTE. NO. Why, unlike LTTE, SLDF are responsible and answerable to the government or in other words to the general public. They are supposed to keep law and order. But, for VP, is he responsible for his people? Can he say that he is the sole representative of the Tamils?

If you go by the common logic and wisdom, we know, VP will never get what he is after.

I think this is a lost cause for the entire Tamil community as they take the brunt of it. But all Sri Lankan will feel the heat.

I think it is time for damage control….

I have a feeling that this will come from common people stranded in Vanni. Don’t be surprise if stranded commoners rebel against LTTE soon for their freedom and safety.

Kumara said...

Finally the truth from Tamilnet!
© www.lankajournal.org

I am amazed to see that the Tamilnet has decided to tell the truth about Velupillei Prabakaran to the whole world.



This is what Tamilnet’s leading article today:

“LTTE leader pays tribute to Black Tiger commandos on Vavuniyaa mission
[TamilNet, Friday, 12 September 2008, 04:16 GMT]

Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) Leader Velupillai Pirapaharan on Thursday paid his last respects to the ten Black Tiger commandos, who laid down their lives during the Tiger operation on the Vanni headquarters of the Sri Lankan forces (SF HQ). LTTE officials told media that the LTTE leader paid his last respects with garlanding the photographs of the Black Tigers and by lighting the flame of sacrifice at an undisclosed location in Vanni. The Tiger mission destroyed the infrastructure of the joint operations command of the Sri Lankan forces in Vanni in the early hours of Tuesday.”



Yes. It was the very same FLAME OF SACRIFICE Velupillei Prabakaran ignited thirty odd years ago. Whenever it expires, Prabakaran is lighting that again and again. Thousands of people, mainly Tamils were SACRIFICED in this FLAME OF SACRIFICE starting from Alfred Dureiappa.

Rajini Thiranagama, A. Amirthalingam, Sri Sabaratnam, Neelan Thiruchelvam, Keteesh Loganathan, Lakshman Kathiragamar and Jeyaraj Fernadouple share one common thing. They all were victims of Velupillei Prabakaran’s FLAME OF SACRIFICE.


If the Tamilnet news editor wants to say that Velupillei Prabakaran lit a flame in honor of dead LTTE terrorists, he would have used the term FLAME OF REMEMBRANCE. For example the Flame of remembrance that burns at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier beneath the Arc de Triomphe at Paris, France.

[For example there are 30,000 'war widows' prostituting in Jaffana.]

Panhinda,

Where did you get this number where your mother, sister and daughter also included? When the breadwinner dies in a war/accident, the remaining family members will try to fill that void, in that process, some women are forced to become prostitutes- it is normal in any war torn country- for example: Iraq where women are increasingly becoming prostitutes who feeds off their families by becoming sex slaves to Middle East Allah fuckers who flood to Jordan in numbers these days. Sadly these Allah fuckers knew there are enough surplus, so demanding virgin Iranian teenage girls for their allah night.

By coming to your point, 30,000 is bit exaggerated one, I would say, it is around 5,000 mark.

real,

/*

*/

Lets not make this an ugly game of comparing casualty figures like a cricket match. However, Balakumran admitted Jan this year LTTE lost 3000 in the Jayasikurui ops. (TN CAT/ARTICLE-ID 13/24159). DBS recently stated Jaffanese keep losing so much qualitatively and quantitatively. The Jaffnaese tend to shove things in the closet hoping others wont notice. For example there are 30,000 'war widows' prostituting in Jaffana. They serve the armed forces and many half-breed Vellahala bastards are born. Jaffna is now the islands AIDS capitol and lesbianism is rampant. Poverty is driving many Vellahla to marry lower casts breaking the social hierarchy and order. Mental illness and malnutrition even among elders. The war disabled are hidden and made no mention. The traumatised Jaffanese kids from child soldiering are hidden from the world. You can only keep covering up true figures for so long. When the true cost of the liberation fight is known, you'd better hope the long term benefits add up to something positive. The way things are going, the account seems its deeply in the red.

Panhinda said...

bhariav,

/*

Problem with your figures is perhaps you forgot to add your own family members. 5000 is only a figment of your imagination. The true figures estimated by UNDP given below.

HIV in Jaffna, Sri Lanka

A community member informs, It is estimated that there are 36, 000 war widows in Jaffna district. Where do they go to satisfy their sexual needs? This is one of the other reasons for the sex workers on the increase in the district. There are forty thousand military personnel from the Government of Sri Lanka currently stationed in Jaffna peninsula. Jaffna is the first posting for a young officer who joins the army and he cannot take leave for a period of one year while on duty in Jaffna.

Sam, dear chap, excellent idea. I think your sewage project should be built using labor of chain-gangs of captuted terrorit goons. Soon we will have more surrendered goons than we know what to do with. Since these cads destroyed infrastucture of the North they should be used to rebuild them. Any terroist goon who slacks on the job should be whipped in public as a lesson to other goons.

Yes nollte=peace

I read that editorial.Its a long awaited artical.These diplomats are hiding from their tax payers that they are helping terrorists and they are telling democratically elected government is not doing the right things.

Anyone in the foriegn ministry has balls to ask these clowns and show them, money they hav pumped to the so called humantairian organisations gone to the LTTE bastards hands.

When we captured Mallavi/Thunnukkai where the hell these NGO's work done for last many years gone?

This is where FM should use their propaganda mechanism.

When these things happen does FM summon these clowns and ask why/where/when and how....?????

This is the truth we are facing today. Most of the FM guys are ball suckers of politicos. Some diplomats are pimps who are in the middle east supply our girls to local Arabs.

Some of the diplomats in Europe and far east they never opened their mouth to explain those respective governments about the LTTE.

SLDF can fight and win the war. But there should be parallal mechanism to handle these clowns to help SLDF's.

Talk about Ranil he appointed that wesi Sennanayake,What qualifications does she have to become a diplomat(Any comments) .There are so many like these. I really don't undersatand why Ranil did this. He doesn't like girls.

Ranil loves only boys and few bussinessmen who are suppoting UNP.
He doesn't have a family tocare.Though he has a lovely wife for name sake.His only dream is to become presidend of Sri Lanka and give north and east to LTTE(Tamils) and destroy sinhala race.

German embassoder doesn't remember both the world wars started by his country.Massecared millions of innocent people.Now they are doing it otherway around.Since they cannot start another war they still get innocent people killed helping these f...ing terrorists.This what their tax payers unaware of.

Kick these bastards out from country. They are damaging and inteferring our freedom as democratic country.

Mr embassoder remember this is a democratic country.We are ready to defend this country. People are ready take hardship for that and already shown it.Remember vietnam. Once the war is over we will develop this country. But don't come to us then.You clowns giving wrong informations to your tax payers and feeding these terrorists to destroy this beautiful country.

Sun Tzu's disciple said...

Recent developments with some implications on course of war( but unlikely to change the overall direction of war):

1.Aid groups kicked out of North:
An ill-advised move the cost of which may not be immed obvious but will be felt over the long term.With this I guess the Govt has ensured that GSP+ wont be renewed; But GSP+ effects can be borne by GoSL with help of new friends.

2.East : LTTE seems to have entered harassment stage in TMalee& Bcaloa, and in Amparai, area-denial stage seems to have been reached in forested areas.This will ensure tying down of SLDF in the event of a Wanni offensive by LTTE,progress to area-control if SLDF withdraw to reinforce North, or regress to harassment tactics indefinitely in case Wanni falls to SLDF.

3.Executions:
Targetted executions of Tamil civilians seems to have spiked lately,in Jaffna, East and South after a low plateau over past several months. This may reflect the increasing infiltration of said areas by LTTE or, a realisation of no hope for retaining GSP+ or military supplies from West thus leading to a renewed ignorance of Human Rights concerns, or both.

4.Slowing of offensives:
SLDF has slowed down after ltte counterattacks.Keeping in view the recent development of kicking out all third-party observers from North, reported new weapons consignments and approaching monsoons,rounding up and redeployment of deserters, is the SLA preparing for a concerted and rapid drive into Kilinochi and Pooneryn?
My feeling is that Fonseka has realised the impossibility of occupying whole of Wanni by year-end as promised, so SLA will attempt to capture Kilinochi and Pooneryn by year-end; which will be enough to satisfy the Southern populace as well as deny supplies to LTTE, and wait out the monsoons, then early next year restart major offensives in earnest and capture Mullaitivu to end the war.

Navy refutes bogus 'reportash' by B.Raman

Sri Lanka Navy wishes to unequivocally deny with no uncertain terms the contents under sub heading 08 of the article appeared on the page 06 of "The Island" on 12th September, under the heading "Vavuniya Raid- Conflicting Versions" written by one gentleman by the name of B Raman ( South Asian Analysis group) who is said to be an Additional Secretary (rtd), cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India, New Delhi, and, presently, Director, Institute for Tropical Studies Chennai, as it contains an erroneous and false citation and a bogus quotation referring to the official web site of the Sri Lanka Navy.

Sri Lanka Navy wishes to state that it maintains and updates only one web site namely http//www.navy.lk, and therefore, the Navy plainly and undisputably denies the reference made to the Sri Lanka Navy therein under subheading 8 "..., the version given by the Sri Lanka Navy in its web site did admit some damage to the radar, but claimed it was slight".

Moreover, the self acclaimed writer makes a bogus quotation stating that 'A web blog run by the Sri Lanka Naval Intelligence' is said to have stated "Reports indicated that the radar system was slightly damaged after a bomb fell close to it".

NOTE:

//'A web blog run by the Sri Lanka Naval Intelligence' is said to have stated "Reports indicated that the radar system was slightly damaged after a bomb fell close to it".//

This web blog is defencewire. If you check the DW post under "Zlins target Indra II Radar" (second para.) you see the exact sentence.

So according to Raman DW is run by SLN intel. (Raman retire wela ne, wayasa athi, eya honda sihiyenda inne?)

However, DW changed their stand later, in the next post: if they mean their own report when they say 'contrary to earlier reports'.

//Further pleasant news awaited the Security Forces. The Radar system was still in tact. Contrary to initial reports, the Radar station was able to...//-DW

If this is the case it seems Raman the so called expert read DW to get military info and he failed to read updated version before he finished his expert article.
