53 and 58 to meet-up as LTTE ban comes into effect

The Sri Lanka Armed Forces have been told that the LTTE will be banned, according to a decision made at today's Cabinet Meeting. Exact details will be made available later.

Meanwhile the 58 and 53 Divisions are expected to meet up shortly as Pallai starts being vacated by the LTTE. Only a weak frontline remains at Palai presently, which will be overcome shortly. The 55 Division also marched south at Nagarkovil without any resistance. LTTE seems to have vacated these areas via the sea.

The Army is also expecting a large exodus of civilians, over 100,000 to start moving out of Puthukudiirippu- Vishwamadu areas. They expect to take charge of these civilians at Kilinochchi. The idea is to channel them to safety along the A-34.

Do you have LTTE casualty details? Damm we couldn't box them in!

Adrenaline_Grin said...

DW, you said some terras managed to escape by sea. was the navy able to hunt them down?

any numbers from the overall EP battle?

Pakka-Lanka said...

Rats are abandoning the sinking ship..

Adrenaline_Grin said...

there seem to have been quite a few who managed to escape, any reason why they couldn't be trapped there or was there a strategic reason to let escape?

thanks for the update once again, DW,

@Selve

Selva Did I asked you not to be a Tamil? Or not to worship you’re GOD? What I ask you was not to claim something what was never yours..

There might have been Tamil kingdoms in the past but there was Sinhala kingdoms too which ruled the whole island. So I maybe right to say that this land doesn’t belong to Tamils nor does Sinhalese. We all live in this land so this belongs to every one of us.

That’s why I asked you to be a Sri Lankan. If you want to hang on to your Elam that’s your wish but don’t expect any support from us.

Anyone who works against the unity of this nation is a regarded as a traitor... may it come Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim.. And there is no place for people like that in this land..

So be part of United Sri Lanka and work for prosperous future for everyone.. Or one day die knowing you’re a exile without a homeland..

Well done TF1 & 55 Div

About 1,000 LTTE cadres were killed in Pallai. SLA quickly buried them before anyone could take photos to use for "unpatriotic" activities.

hmmmmmmm..... the inability to trap and kill a few more terras than the 2 or 3 that we are doing as of now, is cause for concern... :-(

in open terrain like this, why cant our UAVs pin point their locations and MBRLS take them out? Hardened bunkers is the normal excuse given for not doing this, but when they are on the move withdrawing, I cant understand why this cant be done......(also MI24 attacks and Fuel air bombs from kafirs/Mig 27ths can be utilized to kill soft targets like troop concentrations..why isnt this not done??

Mahen's blog is filled with really interesting posts and comments. It gives the best entertainment dose. Here is an interesting comment from that blog (Copyright 2009 Bhairav.)


Bhairav said...

When SLA started its push in Mannar!


# of reasons why LTTE never started any counter attacks.

1. They were citing CFA as the obstacle for any counter attacks for some months.
2. Once CFA torn apart, we have to wait for Indian political situation.
3. Well, when the current Indian govern survived, they went for Obama factor.
4. Fierce counter attacks are coming after Nov 27, yes it is still coming.
5. Waiting for the monsoon season.
6. According to our idiot "thiru", LTTE's counter attacks won't start any time soon until VP loses his weight by at least 15 lbs.
7. If anyone can think on the foot, please let us know that what will be the next reason.

DW,
Any information about the remaining strength of the LTTE? I find 1000-2000 a bit too low.

LTTPussy great achievements to date

No capitol

Hang on a sec, did you not have all that even before you started your fancy "struggle"?
Actually you had dignity and respect of world community back then. Fantastic achievements :)

In the T'net website, there is a feature called 'Flashback', which has news items for the day going back 10 years. I thought the following makes interesting reading from 2003. Check the names mentioned in the article.



Defunct’ SDN is shut down
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 January 2003, 17:56 GMT]
Following several unsuccessful meetings of the Sub-Committee on De-escalation and Normalisation (SDN), at which the Sri Lanka Army refused to reallocate its troops to pave the way for the resettlement of refugees, the Liberation Tigers and the Sri Lankan government Tuesday decided to shut down and discuss the matter in future at the direct talks between the two sides.

"The subcommittee (on de-escalation and normalisation) is suspended, " Mr. Anton Balasingham, the LTTE’s Chief Negotiator, said. He was speaking to reporters at the fourth round of talks between both sides which were being held in Bangkok, Thailand.

The SDN was one of two sub-committees set up at the second round of talks between the two sides which was also held in Bangkok in November.

The other body, the Sub-Committee on Immediate Humanitarian and Rehabilitation Needs (SIHRN), would continue to function and would now take up the issue of the resettlement of refugees, Mr. Balasingham said.

The SDN was set up to "examine ways and means to ensure resettlement, the return of private property and the resumption of economic activities in these areas." It was headed by Sri Lanka’s defense secretary, Mr. Austin Fernando, and LTTE’s Special COmmander for Batticaloa-Ampara, Col. Karuna.

The SDN was unable to progress amid refusals by the SLA Commander in Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Sarath Fonseka, to reallocate his troops and, most recently, a demand by him that the LTTE must disarm its troops and decommission its heavy weapons.

The Army’s "unreasonable and unacceptable demands" had rendered the SDN "defunct" Mr. Balasingham said.

PussyTigers said...

Put one of those pussies on a cropduster and call it an airforce.

Patriots,

Arrival of our two of the most battle hardened division, namely 53rd and 55th divisions, to Vanni theater will doubly accelerate LTTE's demise. These two divisions contain soldier from 54th division also. Of course, the other divisions led by legendary 57th, 58th, and 59th divisions broke the deadlock in Muhummale-Nagarkovil axis. I hope that somebody will immortalize the historical moment the legendary 58th division shake hands with the legendary 53rd and 55th divisions on camera for our future chapters of the chronicles.

One for all, and all for one!!

We all are Sri Lankans, may it be Sinhala, Tamil, or Moor!!

PussyTigers said...

Ali,
I think SLN let them escape Nagar Kovil because as once the going gets tough most of these forced recruits will give up arms and escape to SLA controlled areas as civilians. Otherwise with the shrinking coastal line to patrol SLN should have enough crafts to crush any escapees. I could be wrong.

The fake 'Tamil' cause in Sri Lanka is sure to give us sorrow, pain and DDT... even after the Tamil terrorists are cooked 'well-done'.

I hope and pray that SPECTACULAR, BOLD AND INNOVATIV plans are already ready to totally SRILANKANIZE the North and the East.

If any Sri Lankan bloke has any doubt about this... ask yourself... how come Tamil Speaking Sri Lankans (TASSL) live everywhere with all the rights and responsibilities... but Sinhala Speaking Sri Lankans (SISSL) are PREVENTED from buying land and developing them in the RESOURCE-RICH NE.

We have to fix this anomaly for good.

machang that would be most welcome. because TF1/58th div have dont a great deal of clearing, first poonarin then paranthan. So it would be good if 53 or 55 could lend them a helping hand. If Narga Kovil was vacated without SLN's knowledge then I'm a bit concerned that we might be opening doors for an amphibious attack on Jaffna if too many troops leave peninsula to fight in wanni.

Pottu said...

DW,

The bi-polar mania sufferer and Tamil Eelam's Hans Christian Anderson published a story a few days ago that sea tigers escaped by sea. We all made fun of him for publishing imaginary news. Now you are confirming what this joker mentioned in his blog. Is it really true that the cadres escaped by sea? What was the SLN doing allowing these low lifes to escape?

Mahen said...

I can play the trumphet, because i like to blow things , if you know what i mean :P

duzz said...

@pussy tigger..

the news of nagarkovil tiggers evac from sea is very distressing indeed.

i think they just paddled along the shoreline using dinghy boats.. and we couldnt have stopped it even with our arrow boats.. cuz the arrows wont come really close to enemy shores cuz they would be running into the corsairs of an LMG,50 cal weapon or an RPG7..

im pretty sure the Navy is capable of intercepting any heavy sea faring machinery transporting their 122mm's or out of sri lanka incursions.

PussyTigers said...

That sounds plausible, damn those dinghy boats, when are we gonna create a dinghy squadron :)
thanks duzz

Adrenaline_Grin said...

i doubt that the navy did not know or didn't do anything while these scum were escaping. in all probability they were allowed to escape for a strategic reason?

while this might sound silly, i think they might have been allowed to escape to avoid unnecessary casualties among the troops. we all know how bloody battles in the elephant pass area have been in the past - with or without the tigers' big guns. just my two cents.

but would appreciate if DW could shed more light on this issue.

b) Make fat LTTE coolies in the west sick... and die... from overdose of bad news.

c) Watch maximum gallons of red hot Tamil terrorist blood run like streams.

d) Prove a point to the so called experts everywhere how to fight the any terrorist with minimum collateral damage.

e) Prove a point to the so called experts everywhere that there IS NO 'SPECIAL' SOLUTION FOR 'TAMILS'... but ALL SOLUTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE FOR SRI LANKANS.

f) Realize that we can certainly live with a little 'terror'... This is default for any country.

g) Make changes to the 'contents' of statements issued by US... British and Injun... and other 'players' eying Sri Lanka's strategic location and resources.

h) Keep 'Velu' factor to the last... so that a) - g) can BE STRETCHED over years... taking full advantage to humiliate the Tamil terrorists and their coolies.

When the LTTE loses all the land of what they claimed to be a de-facto state, their importance on the international stage will disappear.

Within a few years they may be in the same position as the Polisario Front in the Western Sahara, Basque Separatists in Spain - irrelevant outside of their own community.

Disguised as fishing trawlers pussycats unloaded some bulks and here you, another diaspora hallucination extend that to a "no go area". We all know SLN march there. And I was asking why fleeing pussycats chose sea whereas the road was available for them. I didn't ask "go" or "no-go" details. They are haunting engmas of past glory in your mind.

Iyakachci is still under LTTE.

Indeed and that is why asked this Q.

Naga Kovil is still no go area for SLA.

According to Nachikuda Mahen there is a major conflict between Army and Navy Commander.

Therefore President Rajapakse has taken following steps:

1) Invited Erik Solheim to negotiate a CFA between the commanders

2) Invited SLMM to fail to observe any violations

3) Requested Norwegian Peoples Aid to urgently donate earth moving equipment to allow Navy Commander to make an earth bund to stop an army invasion

4) Invited Nachikuda Mahen to provide the official entertainment as Presidential functions

dw is shooting in the dark.
most of u may not agree due to hatred of mahen, but he was right few ocassions.
1.they withdrew by the effort of their commandos by sea.
2.fonseka's concern about naval operation
3.LTTE internal conflicts
4.2day he said 58 hasnt crossed to eps (as opposed to dw)- he is right and many bloggers agreed earlier.

he is not a joker as v think.
he may only b 30 percent truth, but he's not as hilarious as people think!

ReallyCold said...

When LTTE is banned in Sri Lanka,

1) Can Sri Lankan government ask to extradite those who support LTTE in western land and be handed over to Sri Lankan government?

2) Prosecute Norwegian peace brokers like Solheim who intentionally aided LTTE to become powerful and destructive Terrorist organization in Sri Lanka?

3) Suing Terrorists? - this way victims of Sri Lankans due to LTTE violence should be able to recover damages for those who are living in the west and provided support for LTTE.

4) Prosecute people like RW who helped vanish brave LRRP forces related to Athurugiriya safe house incident?

"Anyone who works against the unity of this nation is a regarded as a traitor... may it come Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim.. And there is no place for people like that in this land.."

This should be bit more elaborated.

I think what you meant by unity the territorial integration of Sri Lanka.

We must have laws against to ensure this will not happen. Most nations around the world have similar laws.

At the same time, we have to work hard to promote equality and integration among everyone.

My ultimate wish is a benevolent dictator for Sri Lanka for next decade or so since the current democratic platform is too expensive and counter productive for us.

According to my sources, there is lot of love between these two on the Sri Lankan government side.

History has always been a great lesson.

Clearly, we all know that LTTE is in Mulaithevu, so go get them and try to get rid of them if you can? Before that don’t make any big noises!

Don’t you see it coming? LTTE wanted you to take Kilinochi, so the world can show its true face, and now it did, US, India and Britain has shown its true face, UNP has shown its true face. All the Sinhala people has shown their true face…

So now, its up to the Tamils to decide, there were many on the middle side, now they will have to chose one side, and this will pave the path for many things to unfold in the coming days.

Thank you Mahinda and the SLA for showing the Tamils the true face of the so called mediators and well-wishers of the Tamils!

Follow the path of LTTE’s withdrawal. you will see which side the victory resides!

I think we missed a golden opportunity to do some harvesting in the M/N/K front. The navy is unable and/or unwilling to take on targets close to the shore due to the threat posed by land-based weapons including .50 AA guns. This really sucks.

On the positive side, these events will free up the 53 and possibly the 55 to join the Wanni front. However, we'll now have to deal with the terras in the jungles and make sure they don't blending in with IDPs and escape.

I think we may have left LTTE a withdrawal route from EPS and MNK to preserve our own troops.

If the LTTE was boxed in they would have been forced to fight to the death. Given the terrain in the area that would have caused even more casualties for us.

Better to let them withdraw, perhaps with some targetting by indirect fire, and then take them on in the jungles.

As either GR or SF said our troops now have the advantage in jungle warfare.

Ending Scenarios

Sc 1. "The dream scenario"

SLA trap (SLN block) cadres in EPS, KMN, Mullathiv and other remaining areas and annihilate all of them including VP and top LTTP leaders and recover TAF, heavy guns and all other military stuff.

Now this is the dream of many guys here including me. But there is no way this can happen with a terrorist outfit which survived for 30 years.

Hence, let me give a 'most probable scenario'.

Sc 2

LTTE will try their maximum to delay SLA advance as much as possible by building earth bunds and using civilians as a shield. Expectation is some luck with TN, India, BJP, Obama, economy or some thing.

If no such external factors hinder GSL then;

1. LTTE withdraw from EPS, KMN, Jaffna and Mullathiv
2. Burry long range guns, ammo, TAF assets, sea tiger assets in safe locations in jungles and civilian settlements. (Recall they have mahaveerar families.)
3. Hida small arms, claymores and ammo in suitable places
4. Hard core cadres, leaders and even VP mix with civilians (of course pretending civilians.)

[Recall Rohana Wijeweera was Aththanayaka Mudalali, when he was captured]

--Long term--

5. Hard core cadres spread all over wanni and settle down together with IDPs
6. Guerrilla attacks and make more SLA casualties
[Note in such claymore attacks xx casualties to SLA and zero LTTE casualties]
7. Accuse SLA/ GSL for 'civilian abductions, harrasment' etc while int. media, HR fronts do the propaganda
8. Demand peelaam via political front

Sc 2 seems like a worst case scenario too. If we rate Sc 1 as 10 points and Sc 2 as 1 point its up to GSL and SLDF to be closer as much as possible to 10 points.

"4. Hard core cadres, leaders and even VP mix with civilians (of course pretending civilians.)"

So, we may want to protect hill country, Colombo and other pockets with high density of Tamil population.

Yes, LTTE survived 30 years and that was because our weakness and lack of wisdom.

As you can see, when we have a national vision (Getting rid of LTTE militarily), we can be successful.

Imaging applying the same vision for other things like Education, Employment, etc.

I didn't forget white vans. SLA will do it but at the same time no one can stop pro-LTTE media (BBC etc) propaganda and other int. factors. So we will not have a free environment similar to Premadasa had that time.

I believe the critical factor is 'intel' which relates to civilians. SLDF should be smart in this regard.

PS.

This is where I support larger army. For post war SL we need to recruit at least another 75,000 to SLA to defend whole SL from potential LTTE guerrilla attacks. Any reduction of SLA will be an invitation to LTTE hit and run games. I think any military need more troops to defend territory than capturing the same.

Yes, we need quality. Who said to increase only the quantity without considering the quality? Also, SLN and SLAF should be strengthen in long term. But in short term we need to expand SLA if we need peace and don't need LTTE build up again.

When it comes to external threats I believe;

1. Intel
2. Quality
3. Strategy
4. Relationships with other countries
5. Neutralization of foreign intel moles
6. Strong leadership (like MR)
7. Determination of public

is more important than the numbers.

This #7 is where I like koti-sirasa attack.. (well, some say it is inside work..) (As some one said..) I don't care if they show top less women.. but they are making sinhala women headless.

The statement: The fall of Kilinochchi represents an important point in the 25-year war that has divided Sri Lanka.

We hope that this event will help hasten an end to the conflict.

The U.S. believes that a lasting, sustainable peace can best be achieved if the Sri Lankan Government works now to reach a political solution that addresses the aspirations of all Sri Lankans, including Tamils, Muslims, and Sinhalese.

The United States does not advocate that the Government of Sri Lanka negotiate with the LTTE, a group designated by the United States since 1997 as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. However, we do believe that a broad range of other Tamil voices and opinions must be brought into a political process to reach a political solution that Tamils inside and outside of Sri Lanka see as legitimate.

This will help assure Tamils that their rights are protected, that they have a say over important areas of their lives in geographical areas in which they predominate, and that they are an integral and respected part of an undivided Sri Lanka.

At the same time, such as process would further delegitimize and erode the support of the LTTE in Sri Lanka and abroad.

"Defence Ministry said troops completely destroyed several key LTTE command centers, including the Kilaly’s ECHO-9 Base, Muhamalai area command bases GOLF-7, ECHO-3 and DELTA-2 and set ablaze a huge LTTE ammunition dump.

A large cache of weapons and LTTE armaments, kept hidden and sealed inside concrete-made underground hideouts were also found by the troops, the Ministry said."

“Gaining control over the Murasumoddai junction, located along the Paranthan-Mullathivu main road, 5 km east of Paranthan, would be strategically vital for the troops as it creates new escaping routes for the Tamil civilians under LTTE hold,” the statement said.

Look at the 3rd line from the bottom and find how careless the official who made the statement has been.

Can someone tell me the need for the word 'Tamil' there? Why cannot we refer to them as just civilians?
This is totally unwarranted.

When can we get some sensible, realistic and patriotic officials to make these statements... with a view to be inclusive of all as Sri Lankans?

These are the clues the foreign vultures LOVE AND ADORE!

Mahen has some relationship with LTTP. Therefore his article reflects the needs of LTTP. These days, LTTP needs some conflicts in SLDF. Therefore, I think they have fabricated this story of escaping via sea to create a tension between SLA and SLN. As sujeewa mentioned, LTTP still has land supply route to MKN area.

Moshe Dayan,

An article entitled "Tigers in Dunkirk-type evacuation from Jaffna Peninsula" dated
January 6th, 2009

at dbsjeyaraj.com

says the following about the abandonment of the previous plan of the LTTE to remain and fight at the N-M-K Jaffna front:

[Suddenly, a change of plan seems to have occurred. “Why” ? is yet an unknown.

A plausible reason may be the belated realisation that the army could move further east of the A-9 in a push parallel to the A-35 or Paranthan-Mullaitheevu road and seal off the coastal areas adjacent to the Chundikulam lagoon.

If and when that happened the existing supply route to the peninsula would be knocked out, rendering entrapped cadres in the peninsula vulnerable.]

This is the strategy I had recommended to expel and/or cutoff the LTTE from the Jaffna peninsula in several previous posts at this blog.

This is an important question, as it is the lynch-pin of intelligence. There are two ways to do this, one short-term and easy, and the other long-term and hard. Naturally, the easy method has weakness.

In the short-term high financial rewards can lead to the creation of a network of 'moles,' who will report on the local LTTE activities early. Naturally, if the other side gives more money and a ticket to Scarborough, you have a problem.

The longer term approach is more solid. Rather than money, you provide an ideal for which certain people will buy into and hence be loyal to Sri Lanka. Gee, what can that be?

P.O.

If you look at the map you see 3 escape routes in addition to A9/ via south EPS.

1. Via sea (Nakarkovil to Mullathiv)
2. Via lagoon
3. Via Chundikulam Santuary

If SLA want to trap tigers in the peninsula they have to fully clear the bpttom of the Jaffna 'neck' until east coast and use naval blockade. This is almost impossible to do in a sudden. Also, at least when Paranthan falls (probably, well before that) LTTE knew what was their plan thus they had enough time to withdraw from Jaffna. Thus, every single cadre they lost in Jaffna and every ammo they wasted, lost .. all their failures in withdrawal.

Moshe Dyan said...

ananda,

intersting.

what dbsj says can be corroborated by other evidence like lack of harvest.

"One is for the cadres to move eastwards to the Vadamaratchy east coast where sea tiger boats transport them to the Mullaitheevu coast.

The other is for cadres to go to the south-eastern area to a place called Kombaatty and then go across the lagoon to Ooriyaan on the mainland."

so CLEARLY SLDFs are not following a HARVESTING strategy. SLN is totally silent. i recon they ACTIVELY allow tigers to flee following the chase-away strategy that has worked so far. why? why? why?

toiletnet reported SLAF attacks on the chundikulam area. the lagoon/villu/sanctuary area would DEFINITELY be a supply route.

i disagree with dbsj on the assertion that wars are not won by evacuations. as far as the LTTE is concerned it can well be. for them surviving another day is a victory especially now when cadre shortage is seriously affecting them.

LTTE needs the same competency to move the other way too! (plus SLN inactivity).

Pansilu said...

Why some bloggers are as they are – Excerpts from a prominent weekly magazine:

Part I - General:

Darwin’s insight, life is about two things: survival and reproduction. Of the two, the second is the more significant. To put is crudely, the only Darwinian point of survival is reproduction. As a consequence, much of daily existence is about showing off, subtly or starkly, in ways that attract members of the opposite sex and intimidate those of the same sex.

Men do it more than women, status and hierarchy matter and in modern society, status is mediated by money.

Girls have always liked a rich man, of course. Darwinians used to think this was due to his ability to provide materially for their children. No doubt that is part of it. But the thinking among evolutionary biologists these days is that what is mainly going on is a competition for genes, not goods. High-status individuals are more likely to have genes that promote health and intelligence, and members of the opposite sex have been honed by evolution to respond accordingly. A high-status man will get more opportunities to mate. A high-status woman can be more choosy about whom she mates with.

For men, at least, this is demonstrably true. Status, though, is always relative: it is linked to money because it drives the desire to make more of the stuff in order to outdo the competition. This is the ultimate engine of economic growth. Since status is a moving target, there is no such thing as enough money.

While on average rich people are happier than poor people within a country, average happiness does not increase as that country gets richer. Though the economic growth makes everybody better off, it does not matter that some are better off than others-does not stand up, at least if “better off” is measured in terms of happiness What actually matters, Darwinism suggest, is that a free society allows people to rise through the hierarchy by their own efforts.

Conversely, the Darwinian explanation of continued support for socialism – in the teeth of evidence that it result in low economic growth-is that even though making the rich poorer would not make the poor richer in financial terms, it would change hierarchy in ways that people at the bottom would like.

Would you rather earn $100,000 when all your friends earn $50,000, or $150,000 when every body else earns $300,000? The reason socialism does not work in practice is that this not a question that most people ask, but how to earn $300,000 when all around them are earning $50,000!

A Darwinian analysis does, however, support one argument frequently made by the left and rejected by the right. This is that poverty is relative. The argument is that once economic growth has lifted a country out of penury, its inhabitants are likely to live longer, healthier lives, if there are not huge differences between their incomes. This means that poorer countries with low income-variation can outscore richer ones with high variation. It is also true that those at the bottom of social hierarchies have worse health than those at the top- even when all other variables are statistically eliminated, including the fact that those who are healthier are more likely to rise to the top in the first place.

Darwinists have worked out that any competition has winners and losers. The illuminating point is that loosing has a real cost, not just the absence of gain, with the stakes this high-early death for failures and genetic continuity for the success-it is hardly surprising that those at the bottom of the heap sometimes seek violence, or at least use foul language and social disruption.

That crime is selfish, is hardly news, but the idea that criminal or violent behaviour is an evolved response to loosing hopes along with status sounds shocking.

Most violence (and thus most murder, which is simply violence’s most extreme expression) is a consequence of competition between young, unemployed, unmarried men.

Of course in a blog committing violence is out of the question but ruthless attack on fellow bloggers with filthy language is similar to committing violence and murder in real life.

Moshe/Ananda-USA,

As I said before, SLDF cannot counter all changes in a the battle field. LTTP has lot of experience and some brains too. So, they keep on changing their tactics to suite changing environments. We cannot kill a retreating enemy that easily.

Still LTTP has a large enough are covered with thick bush to fight back. They may be thinking counter attacks and killing more SLA troops are much easier in close proximities. Well they have at least did it with IPKF.

Our special forces are in much better shape than IPKF in 90s. As I see, all LTTP plans failed so far.

They are not in a position to start fresh attack far away from present FDL, at least not a major one.

I think our grand chess master and his trusted commanders are ready for all eventualities that may arise in coming weeks.

3. all the offensive divisions (except the new 59) of the SLA would be in the area from kokavil to chundikulam VERY SOON.

4. from the south of my territory they have tf2, tf3 & tf4 which are smaller than a division. 59 is relatively new and cornered into the mula coastline.

5. mmmmmm.....

6. what if i penetrate their fdl (fdl? my arse) from kokavil and cut-off the 57 & 58 on one hand and whack trinco or trinco-kks bound ships AND land my cocksuckers into nagarkovil to take on the rear of 53 & 55???

taking their BIG supply routes is enough. 3 times meals, truckloads of rm-70 rockets, fighters, fuel every day. that is periya BIG!

they can't have 10 different routes. from the est only one sea route and since 57 and 58 have merged, it is economical for them to have ONE supply route.

7. bcos of SF's aggression he has deployed the best fighters at the front and others at the back. in cleared areas he has new recruits who are there to earn a quick buck.

8. if 53, 55, 57 and 58 are cut-off, there is NOTHING 59 can do. very little tf-2/3/4 can do.

And don't keep pursuing individuals in a derogatory. Once, twice, that's enough. Pursuing someone to get intelligence in a subtle manner. A different kettle of fish.

I say these with the kindest intentions. You have been upgraded to patriot level one! Courtesy Humble MR (Humble(R) copyright oAo Asthiri heh heh).

I think we should call truce for the sake of Mother Lanka. How about it bro?

Pansilu said...

MR,

I have no intention of quitting with out accomplishing the goal. Sorry, bro, I don’t need to count rungs of patriotic ladder either because competition to be the best patriot is not in my priority list.

I will not attack anybody unless somebody tries to dictate terms to a fellow blogger.

Your call for truce is accepted on the sake of mother land.

I read your posts with an interest irrespective to my responses on them.

Cheers, mate.

Looks like Sri Lanka's economic collapse comming very soon. Also are you with or against the BJP if it decides to attack Pakistan. Thanks to Satyam drop, BJP rises even further. There can be just too much of a good thing can there.

Mayilrawana,

Good to hear from you, buddy.

My power supply is superb with full qouta duty free liquor and cigarettes on the way back from Melb.

Mate, lately I didn't see you writing to my friend wijayapala. What is the matter, ducking away from valid questions is not your style, as far as, I know.

Navindran anna, after I float the Eelam Dollar, I will invite you to be the Eelam Finance Minister.

Moshe Dyan said...

rana,

keep living in your fools' paradise!

my boys and girls will show you what real fireworks are.

he he!!

we are only waiting till 4 out of 5 of your offensive divisions get trapped into a lagoon area within 40km from each other.

we can handle 40km. easy!

i'm giving enough rope to SLA to hang themselves!!

p.s. i can't remove these dirty shoes of vezapillai!!! they are stuck!! dwarka thinks i'm VP. i'm getting hard by seeing her scantly dressed in the hot bunker. i feel guilty. i'm thalaivar!!

Rana said...

OK, Veasapille,

Explain how 4/5 is going to get trapped in lagoon area within 40km from each other!

Then I will get into the shoes of SF to make a counter reply.

Pearl Thevanayagam said...

We must think as Sri Lankans and not let India dictate to us. You say that 100,000 civilians will be dispaced. These are obviously Tamils and in whose name this war is waged.
Is it too late to come to a compromise with the LTTE although they are engaged in "guerrilla" warfare basically since Tamil aspirations were not met with political solutions by the dominant Sinhalal govt. Chauvinism apart we are talking of Sri Lankan lives be they soldiers on the frontline or Tamils LTTE cadres sacrificing lives. Capturing areas and glorifying battle success will only lend ammo to partisan politics and those profiteering from war economy.
Am I being naive?

Pearl,

"Is it too late to come to a compromise with the LTTE although they are engaged in "guerrilla" warfare"

It's too late for the LTTE. Thalaivar had a chance to reach a "compromise" during the CFA period and he blew it. Now he's on a one-way road to the Great Concrete Bunker in the Sky (Eelam Heaven). The Tamils should find someone else to follow- the earlier the better.

mutta rana aka chingala modaya,

muttai, muttai. sariyaana muttai!!

1. 57 is operating eastwards from kili

2. 58 is heading in ye35, i mean, A35.

3. 53 and 55 plan to come down and going to meet somewhere north of the A35 south of EPS. 55 also have to come here as there are no other roads eastwards

4. from this location to areas 57 is operating is max 40km.

5. theriyama, pillai?

6. now i understand that 57 and 58 are dispersed in a larger area. but their best fighters are at the front for obvious reasons.

7. i take them out and others will run for their lives. i can afford a few thousand mahaveers. it costs just a head stone, what else?

8. i could have become an engineer like you. but standardisation came. so i gave up studies and got into my business. but now i'm ok. $300 million every year. half for me.

p.s. i'm still thalaivar.

priyashantha said...

Pissu Moshi,

Cut the crap brother.

Come back to the real world. By any chance are you speaking your mind out?

LTTE can't attack the 53 and 58 gathering point. That will be foolish. They couldn't take 58 alone so how can they take 53 and 58 together?

wijayapala said...

Rajan,

"How comes all go successfully towards SLA while all becomes downfall for LTTE."

Why don't you answer the question? How come Thalaivar is getting his Fat Ass kicked these days by simple chena boys?

wijayapala said...

Ninja,

Nalin de Silva's rubbish remains rubbish. I agree with paragraph 2 and 3, and para 4 was incoherent.

Once again he blames the Tamils for everything in the rest of his op-ed, repeating his usual crap that the Tamils don't have a history in SL more than 200 years (Mayilravana ayya- are you Prof. Nalin??), an argument that has absolutely nothing to do with the LTTE.

Any particular reason you posted Prof. Nalin's article here, Ninja?

Rana said...

Vesapille,

//1. 57 is operating eastwards from kili//

Correction, now it is Mursumoddai and Iranamadu

//2. 58 is heading in ye35, i mean, A35.//

Correction, part of 58 and 57 hand in hand.

//3. 53 and 55 plan to come down and going to meet somewhere north of the A35 south of EPS. 55 also have to come here as there are no other roads eastwards//

Wrong 55 will guard the neck from EP to Mullian while 53 join 58 covering lagoon side again hand in hand.

//4. from this location to areas 57 is operating is max 40km.//

Completely wrong! Even from Iranamadu to murusamoddai is about 06km and Murusomoddai to Lagoon is about 04 km. Once 57 pass Iranamadu tank total battle front will be less than 20km because TF3 is advancing south to the tank towards KILI-Mulative road.

//6. now i understand that 57 and 58 are dispersed in a larger area. but their best fighters are at the front for obvious reasons.//

Wrong again 53, 58 and 57 will be dispersed in less than 20km area. If you remember Nachchikudh-Akkarayan- Kili battle, 58 and 57 were stretched more than 25km and faced severe counter attacks. Now, 03 divisions spread in 20km is nothing.

OK, Thaleivar, counter Sarath Fonseka now!

Rana said...

Wijayapala,

Mate, Did you read my second reply?

Sam Perera said...

DefenceWire,

Can you please give us some idea about our strategy at EP? Why is 58 not getting aggressive there to cut-off LTTE routs, I mean box them and annihilate the trapped cadre? It looks very puzzling to me, hopefully, lots of things are happening behind the scene. Please give us an update a time permits.

Thanks

Sam

2 large LTTE boats destroyed bv Navy in Chundikulam Coast this morning.

Moshe Dyan said...

Since the Tamil community has grievances, the LTTE is backed by it not only within Sri Lanka, all over the world. It is headed by Prabaharan who has surpassed the war skills of Moshe Dayan, the Israeli General.

what on earth is this crap from lankaguardian????

rana vesike-putta rrrrrrr....rrrrr,

1. "57 in Mursumoddai and Iranamadu"

even better!!

2. "part of 58 and 57 hand in hand"

even better!

3. "55 will guard the neck from EP to Mullian while 53 join 58 covering lagoon side again hand in hand."

"from EP to Mullian" so that means they have crossed to the mainland.

awesome!

4. "Even from Iranamadu to murusamoddai is about 06km and Murusomoddai to Lagoon is about 04 km. Once 57 pass Iranamadu tank total battle front will be less than 20km"

LESS than 20km, wow! even better. much much less than 40km!!!!

so 53, 55, 57, 58 in a more concentrated area within 20km.

rana, my chingala son, don't put all your eggs in one basket!

mahaveers are waiting, waiting AND waiting. i tell them WAIT, WAIT,WAIT,WAIT konjam WAIT.

my primary chingala teacher taught me,

"iwasana dana rupu yudayata jeya kotiya!!!"

still thaliavar.

PussyTigers said...

sam,
I think it's to minimise our casualties.
if they wanna leave let the scared pussies leave.
Later it'll be easier to wipe them out in one go when they're concentrated in and around mulla
That's my 2 cents anyway

SCOFIELD JONTA said...

SLA you are the no 1 counter terrorist army in the world.keep it up bro's.
can someone tell me dat how many 152mm arti guns does the SLA posses?

Moshe Dyan said...

vajira,

thanks for the news. that jolted me back to moshe. i'm not thalivar anymore.

hello rana. how are you mate.


"2 large LTTE boats destroyed bv Navy in Chundikulam Coast this morning."

i partly withdraw the following @ 4:03 am.

"so CLEARLY SLDFs are not following a HARVESTING strategy. SLN is totally silent. i recon they ACTIVELY allow tigers to flee following the chase-away strategy that has worked so far. why? why? why?"

Sam Perera said...

Pussy,

Your name reminds me the old James Bond movie "Gold Finger." Thanks for the reply anyway.

Rana said...

Moshi,

Cut the crap, mate!

Get a good sleep,You started hallucinating like our bi-polar friends from the other side.

Best medicine is a good sleep.

Do not think a moment that 55 and 53 both will come down to main land leaving P'sula vulnerable!

Mulliyan is extreme south of the p'sula neck, not in main land.

We need to guard P'sula neck until 53 and 58 goes to Chundikulam.

If I were in vesapille's shoes, I will loose my weight, grow my hair and beared, use some cosmetics to see like a 70 year old man. Then I will join IDP and limp to a nearest army check point with a white flag leaving others to the do or die battle.

Wijayapala

@ Dr.Nalin De Silva

I don't agree with him when he says the problem is over and APRC should be dissolved.

I know you don't agree with him for the history part but what he says about after 1900 seems correct for me. I am no history expert but considering the present events its not hard for a non-expert to make conclusions on historical events few decades ago.

/Any particular reason you posted Prof. Nalin's article here, Ninja?/

I posted it as I saw some relevance to defence matters from an academic out side of the subject, contrast to say, BRaman and expecting some including you might give some feedback.

He always insisted on the following two things which is subjected arguments and seems he is correct.

# "It was only the other day that Shanie advocated a ceasefire for the Christmas."

# "We were able to see through it and had written on number of times that if the government were to say no to the demands by the west firmly then there was nothing that the latter could do."

(I don't oppose cease fires or west on a permanent or unilateral basis but believe we should do things according to ground conditions. I believe his stand also would be the same even though I never seen him saying so.)

Sam Perera said...

Rana,

"Moshi,

Cut the crap, mate!"

Take it easy. Moshe is in a funny mood today.

Rana said...

Vajira,

Mate, what is your source?

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Velupillai has said the last battle of Eelam would be fought on Sea!

If things progress as it is now, his predictions would indeed be true.

That means, our Navy would blow his fleeing sorry arse in the middle of Mullative Seas!

PussyTigers said...

So many soldires lost their lives to gain about 500m when they broke into 1st defence line @muhamalai a month or so ago. Now they're moving forward with relative ease after parantha's fall. Which make you think, should we not have waited for paranthan to fall before moving forward into a heavily fortified area. Mind you it's always easier to be picky with 20/20 hindsight.

PussyTigers said...

Tamil nadu terrorist backers, instead of sending food how about sending a ship load of magnifying glasses down there?
