LTTE now only in Mulaitivu

The narrowest battleground in Sri Lanka where hundreds fell in previous operations, Muhamalai and Kilali, were captured this afternoon along with elephant pass. Palai still remains uncleared. The 53 and 58 are squeezing in on Palai. LTTE seems to have abandoned the area and retreated.

The 53 Advanced into a 500m2 area initially at Kilali and Muhamalai without much LTTE resistance. The 58, by that time, had reached the lagoon area at EPS.

Meanwhile resistance in Mulaitivu is growing. On 1st January, a massive counter attack broke the 59 Div FDL. 24 Ratha Regiment cadres were killed and another 8 captured, who also later died. 18 soldiers were also killed.

The police Special Task Force and members of the now 41,000 strong Civil Defence Force were deployed to guard the rear of the 59. Fighting is expected to intensify in this area.

TF 3 and 4 are also advancing steadily towards Iranamadu, Puthukudiirippu and Mullayaveli. They will join the 59 in further trapping the LTTE, which is probably 1,000-1,500 strong in Mulaitivu now.

Thanks DW for the update !

Why not NagarKovil ?

Ananda-USA said...

Mahen's blog makes this incredible statement:

[Military and Human Rights conventions allow for the safe withdrawal of combatants in the face of enemy advances, however, the SLA did not adhere to these conventions and indiscriminately fired on the withdrawing guerrillas.]

What NONSENSE! Only people covered by the Geneva Convention are troops who lay down arms and surrender.

He is dreaming; making up rules as he goes along!

Why are we still pushing them away. Its time to trap them and kill them in whole sale. We are asking for trouble if they surrender. Then we have to spend money on rehabilitation and what not. All the NGO and IC will descend on us. No POW's please. Kill all and dont allow them to fight another day.

duzz said...

good news.. capturing EPS and NMK axis of evil is also a big milestone.

but im more concerned about the damage done to the terra outfit. LTTE casualties,arms captured etc..

if they just retreated with their cadres intact the threat lingers on. what happened to the 500+ cadres who were boxed in by the 58th and the 53rd?
if they just fell back to Puthu areas via chundikulam thats something to worry about cuz our forces will have to face a regrouped and rearmed force(who managed to flee NMK) in the coming months.And the 150000+ IDP count who are used as a HUman sheild makes the JOb harder cuz we wont have the privilege of using our 130mm's. The bottom line is we should take the opportunity to inflict maximum damage when we can without leaving it to another time. The theory of eliminating LTTE Manpower was probably what took us here and what gave the army the upper hand after 3 decades of fighting. we must stick to that.

Peter said...

LTTE started in '79 with the entire Tamileelam under Tamil administration. JRJ sent his forces to win the land bit by bit. After 30 years, JRJ's men have almost got all the land.

Observer said...

Sri Lanka guardian appears to be a very "cheap" site. I heard that its run by RAW agents ..but dunno the truth..

They are copy/pasting from all the blogs without even mentioning from where that was taken.

Today it has fallen to a pathetic low by publishing Mehen Jokers story of rescue mission and war convention lies.

duzz said...


my thoughts exactly!

Raptor said...

Peter Ponnadurai, go and write some trash on your stupid blog saying you tactically withdrew and will be back bla bla bla.

And Mahen has some hope that retreating terrorists still bearing arms are covered by the Geneva convention. Its a case of pot calling the kettle black, the LTTE continuously engaged withdrawing SLA soldiers during EPS 2000.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Wonderful news. Such a treat to eyes when you’re bored with staled news full of worthless debating whether to have rice or bread for dinner [or some other things like that].

Yesterday Rama reported from the abandoned bull dozer where Gamini Kularatne sacrificed his life. SoEPS was just at eye sight. Now it seems that they have reached there. As K-M-N has pushed the enemy to Pallai, my guess is that gap is at maximum 5km between two fronts. And this means there can’t be many sandwiched in between. Whoever was there must have fled via Iyakachchi which is another 1 km or two from EPS. I hope EPS will be mere consolidation in another so called “ghost” town. However still we should be extremely cautious.

It is obvious that they all gather to one place. I’m sure at least some of the guns were moved to Chundikulam [specially during night]. Death for pussycat movement in imminent but only concern is at what cost to our brave hearts. Very important how they manage the toughest task of all.

Who will be the first to get there? I guess Shaveendra & Co will reach the final battle ground first.

With every blessing, victory to SLDF !!!

Looking forward for more details...

All Hail for SLDF

SLG published some homosexual reports and put writer's name as Peter Ratnadurai

Harsh. I think Col.Nugera is still out of action.DW earlier reported that Mech's are led by Col.Nugera's second Udaya Herath.

DW please quote on this as I was trying to search more and more about the Mech unit.

P.S - Mahen's blog stated that Mech unit was lead by some 1 who is not so experienced since Nugera was out,and Army Commandment is in some doubt to deploy the Mech's.
DW need some answer's.

1 thing will be sure..Col.Nugera will be back... And he will be back in a mejestic way to end 4rth ELAM WAR.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Guys, how can they "Trap" anyone in EPS as long as there is an alternative road starting right from the middle of it [Iyakachchi-Chundikulam]?

EPS can never be a harvesting ground. Best two harvesting grounds were Kili and Mula. We lost one as we won the town, and other is still at large, but we need to box them from Puthi side and TF3/TF4 has to move there first.

My ideas is that we should leave Mula as their dilemma and try to tae Puthu soon. That will divide their force and reduce our casulaties.

Anyway, soon 53/55 super powers will join the fireworks.

@ sujeewa..

i thought only the 53rd was moving south.. i expect the 55th to be stationed for defensive purposes. I think its a good move cuz we must not let any error that would jeopardize the security of jaffna. im not saying that LTTE will retake jaffna.. but even a failed attack would severely effect the psycology of the civilian population.

According to Stoptero at LNP,

"EP now being captured, RAW plane scanning North - west - east coasts, Indian Navy special ops in Trinco, Kachativu - court says give it back, Tamil Jokers concerned of all the indian activity in North."

Finally, Indian Navy joins the foray. What about little bit of support from IAF to smoke out the remaining rats?

I personally know Udaya Herath, and he is one of very capable persons. He is one of the most determined and sharp persons I have seen, who never gives up on anything he undertakes. He wants to deliver, and surely LTTE will feel his delivery in absence of Col Nugera.

In person Udaya is witty as hell and a master of Sinhala Literature, History, etc and a good debater, which you do not expect to find from a hardened military person.

Certainly, Udaya Herath will do a great job.

Hey Mr Chintana,

Many Tigers safely vacated from EPS. Very few casualties.

Infinity said...

"On Tuesday, government forces took full control of Muhamalai and forced the rebels to fall back about 600 yards (meters) to another defense line, military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara said.

The rebels offered less resistance than usual in the area, he said.

"They are withdrawing step by step," he said."


So I guess that the 3rd line is still under LTTE control. It is an advance, not a rout (yet).

yea, escaped to hell with the help from SLA.

Hey Madams,

If you claim that its a rout, where are the bodies eh? In fact where ARE the bodies from the "victories" in Kili, Nachchikuda, Pooneryn and Paranthan? SERIOUSLY, where are they???

Killing 35,000 of yours since it takes two hands to clap and both sides are guilty of killing.

Watever traps have maken by SLA, LTTE will escape.


Finally SLA captured or to be captured LTTE FDL in the Kilali - Mukamaalai - Nagarkovil FDL.

The fighters were in that FDL already moved to Wanni. These fighters will come back soon.

its the matter of mech unit comes in to action, then the big fireworks begins

Mahen said...

Mr Chintana,

Your mech unit is refusing to come the party. Ever since Ralph Nugera was put out of action by the LTTE, the mech unit is too afraid to go into battle without him. He he he.

Agree. We ought to keep one unit at K-M-N. Ending this is not necessarily a matter of days for us. We waited 30yrs and we can wait for another couple of months. What we need is no room for foul play.

Although they can not win or hold anything, Pussycats will try any opportunity to comply the amount of bloodshed to be shipped to diaspora via punnakku news in order to get the funding for next year. Whatever result they gain in reality, there is the PhotoshopTigers and diaspora henchmen [like Mahen] to create Punnakku news out of that. SLDF should be very careful.

Blucher said...

Ralph Nugera seems to have the unfortunate strait of attracting artillery strikes. I remember he was injured in an arti strike made at the inauguration of Mech Infantry Brig.

He maybe a good commander but perhaps he is not a lucky one and that as Napoleon said is the most important thing. After all we don't need to look beyond Fonseka to see the importance of luck.

ReallyCold: On UNP march

UNP has gone mad. Seriously they were not this crazy ever. In fact they have found Mahinda too big for them and don't see anything beyond Mahinda. Since Mahinda is the president of SL, they attack SL shamelessly thinking that is a way to attack Mahinda.

Nevertheless, in my view, RW should be protected and defended as leader of UNP. Thanks to him all the patriots gathered under one flag. Thanks to him we realized the value of winning the war. Thanks to him the little supported MR could build a strong govt. And as long as he's in the leadership of UNP, he guarantees that UNP is in opposition and he will indirectly strengthen the patriotic camp very much.

To realize the value of freedom you ought to live under slavery, to realize the value of victory you have to be defeated first up. In 2002 RW brought defeat to us via CFA and started a semi-slavery [especially for SLDF] where they had to bear up harassment and provide transport to likes of Anton Bala, Thamilselvam etc.

RW, thank you very much for opening the eyes of our nation by throwing cold water into the sleeping nation.

ex - Brig Shavindra Silva & Maj Gen Jagath Dias have Shown what we Srilankans are made of."

We have always had great combat commanders such as Denzil Kobbekaduwa, Vijaya Wimalaratne, Lucky Algama, Janaka Perera, Sarath Fonseka, Percy Fernando (Deputy GOC of 54 Div at EPS who died fighting unlike Egodawela who managed to escape).

The problem was that the army commanders - Cecil Waidyaratne, Gerry Silva, Rohan Daluwatte, Srilal Weerasooriya and Lionel Balagalle were absolutely useless. Shantha Kottegoda was entirely during CFA so it is unfair to comment on him. Not to forget Field Marshall Von Paulus Anurudda Kora Ratwatte as Military Masterfool

Sarath Fonseka is the first commander in a long time who has had the confidence to put the best commanders in charge of troops and let them get on with the job rather than keeping them out of the way in admin jobs. If Srilal was in charge today, Jagath Dias and Shavendra Silva would be in charge of Cooking and the Marching Band.

In the traditional manner of the SLA, Shavendra Silva has no right commanding a combat division as he is 45th in terms of seniority. Remember the newspapers who accused Fonseka of favouritism in choosing his commanders. Well he chose on ability not seniority.

KillerT said...

Do u guys believe the statement that LTTP strength is 1000-1500 cadres?

Blucher said...

Guys please give RanilW credit for one thing about the CFA. It made sure that the last 3 years of Lionel Balagalle's time as Army Commander was free of conflict. Otherwise our FDL may have been pushed back to Anuradhapura.

Unknown said...

Special forces work under their attached division commander.But special forces commander is Brigedier Niumal Dharmarathna.Was a Good ruger player from Kandy. Brig.Shravendra silva also from Kandy.

In a division there are so many regiments fight. Signal,Commandos,SF,Infantry,Arty,
Armered tanks,engineers,service corp,Medis,Transport,ordenance,...etc.

I would think the ground troops will communicate with the central site (command center) before calling in the airforce bombers... there probably is some military protocol that dictates the need for someone at the command center to approve the drop ?

but maybe i have watched to many movies... :) maybe someone who has first hand experience can enlighten us all?

Blucher ,
well said bro.I want to add 1 more name to the Our Hroic Leader's list Maj. Laki Wijeratna.Who died at Trinco in 92.

P.S - I have little doubt whether we should add Maj Gen Vijaya Wimalaratne in that Group because of some facts regarding the death of Lt-Gen Denzil Kobbekaduwa. Lets keep that aside as i dont want to comment about those things in a public forum.

As i said earlier we had some dark patch's in our past, But what matters is we are ever so powerful now and we are in our A game.

Yes, we do possess equipment to call in air strikes. That is the job of forward air controllers and spotters. The technology to call in air strikes has been in place since WWII, there is nothing sophisticated about it! Although I am almost certain that we have the equipment to call in air strikes from rotary winged aircrafts (helicopters), I am not entirely sure whether we have the equipment to call in strikes from fixed winged aircraft. Rotary and fixed wing use different methods of communication. In any case, the controllers can call in any type of air strikes by communicating with the command centre who relay it to the SLAF bases. It gets interesting when the guys on the ground call in strikes from loitering Mi-24 gunships (it happens frequnelty)!

Unknown said...

And I highly believe if Lt-Gen Denzil Kobbekaduwa RWP RSP VSV USP was alive this war would never be in year 2008, infact this war would have been finished in late 92 or for sure in 1993.
Again saying what matters is the present.Lets hope for a better tomorrow.

Lt Gen Balagalla had to stay away because of the CFA and he had to sit alone with lttp MF's because of RW and then Def sec who took a bag of apple to see terrorist pulidevan.

Some Information About Lt Col Ralph Nugera

From June last year until recently he was commanding TF 2 in Vavunia (not Mech. Inf. Regiment in Muhamalai as Mahen indicates). Yes, he was injured but in 2007 due to 130 mm artillery fire. He had to undergo some operations time to time. There is no evidence to indicate that he is injured again.

“The SLA expected the mechanized infantry brigade to virtually walk over EPS, however the mech brigade's leader - Ralph Nugera - was seriously injured by LTTE arti fire. With Nugera convalescing in hospital, the mech brigade has suffered a severe blow as the new leader has very limited battle experience, therefore, the mech brigade is being kept out of action for fear of major setbacks due to inexperienced leadership.”
Mahen’s BS

“The Task Force I was deployed on 23.09.2007 at Silawaturai under the command of Brigadier Chagi Gallage and now has advanced to Poonaryn under the leadership of Brigadier Shavindra Silva, while the Task Force II which began on 14.06.2008 from Vilayatikulam, under Colonel Ralph Nugera is now in Omanthai under Brig. Rohana Bandara.

Bottom line 12/31”

“Army Task Force II to Open New Battle Front
AS GROUND TROOPS continue the military thrust on the Wanni defences the Sri Lanka Army is planning to further increase the pressure on the LTTE, mooting plans to form Task Force - II to open a new battle front from the East of A-9 road from the Mundimurippu area.
Initial steps have been taken to from this Task Force appointing Brigadier Ralph Nugera as the General Officer Commanding of the Task Force - II. Seven battalions have already been allocated for the Task Force -II.”

Rotary wing air craft are used in west as a hobby for rich men to fly and do air dives.

Aparently the PTTE air "kurumbati force" was formed by sending some english speaking "tigers" and renting the light air crafts 200£ an hour in Oxford based Air entertainment company

and these offshore buffoloes call it an "Air Tiger Brigade"

Dont they look like a real PTTE >?

I have to do some correcting.Col.Nugera was injured during the inauguration of the mech Brigade,last year.I do agree with that. I agree that he was leading along side Brig Chagi Gallage's TF1, but that was before he was injured.
And after he sustained injuries it was very difficult to find some news about him.

What DW said about him in colombo should be true because Mech's[still not deployed] are lead by Col Udaya Herath..Because i truly believe if Col nugera was back in the front he would surely lead his Co:, Because he was the 1 who built it.

These reports you have read are the web articles which were written long before.Some web site's lack the detailed date's.
he will be back......

1. SL Gunersekara
2. Champika
3. Rathana Hamuduruwo
4. Wimal

Let me add most of JVP, NFF, Manel Mal, PNM, JHU, SU into the list.

Leaving behind my political differences let me state a good deed of them.

When SF was bombed and Nanda M was acting as commander Pussycats blocked the sluice gate. SL govt had only started tit-for-tat air raids after SF attack, but was in no mood of war. I've heard that Nanda M was a weaker lad and that is why Pussycats attemoted SF and late Parami K who were the ranks in either side of him, in order to make him Commander. Well he was the acting Commander anyway.

It was those patriotic nationalists who marched to Mavil Aru. I am sure it would have been foolish if they were allowed to walk in. But the fact they walked intending to open the gate unless SLDF would do it was the closest reason for Nanda M to initiate the operation. SF was not the one who cut the ribbon of this phase IV or whatever.

I'm sure that SF and GR were getting ready for war, but for whatever reason it was started as a pledge to the patriots who risked their lives to walk to the sluice gate.

Let me salute them, although I disagree with their politics.

SWij-USA said...

SF final statergic plan should be this:
(1) Push remaining LTTE pigs at K-M-N , EPS and Mulative to thin stretch from Mulative to Chundikulam
(2) Have cut off trops on N, SE and South of this thin stretch across Jaffna Lagoon- No need to chase them any further.
(3) Have SLN encircle NE and SW blocking all sea escape routes
(4) Cut fire lanes on N, SE of the thin stretch ( ChundiKulam-Mulative) to prevent fire spreading to main land
(5) Set fire to the jungle

LTTE pigs will unable to stand heat will simply walk into our cutoff troops or those who wish to stay put will get roasted themselves for the acts commited in Sri Mahabodhi and Kent farm massacers.

Can blame nature for wild bruch fire or accidental man made fire.

Can save lot of SF casualties and AF leathal Cargo.

So that should be the reason for his absence....
And as i heard{DW} his predecessor is a carbon copy of him,And a battle harden Leader himself.Col Udaya Herath. So he will do his Job.

During early days, Tamil mouthpieces against Sinhalese were very loud.

When they used words like 'Discrimination', 'oppression', 'chauvinism', etc.. that sent chills along the spines of Sinhalese and made them speechless.

I remember reading SL Gunersekara writing (By the way he is not a Buddhist I believe) and getting inspired. He had the perfect arguments against Tamil diaspora.

Champika and Wimal disappointed me at the end even although they have contributed a lot.

Who is Rathana Hamuduruwo?

In this struggle, you need to really separate your real friends, patriots, and politicians.

Politicians always say the right thing for themselves. I believe SLG was a real patriot.

Most Sinhalese don't back these people. I find that very interesting. One would think if Sinhalese are so against Tamils, parties like JHU will be running the country.

I ask the audience here to be vigilant about who the right patriot is. Buddhism teaches you how to pick the right friend and use the word 'Kalyana Mithra'.

According to that definition, people like Ananda-USA, MaylRavana, and Asithri are never friends of you. They want to brain wash you like the way Tamilnet brainwashing you from their propaganda. The purpose of these three and their followers here is self promotion.

Ananda-USA is miss informing his friends calling me an LTTE agent. He thinks I am a threat for his ideology.

For me, that is brain washing his own Sinhalese.

The only way to defend your cause is by learning the real facts than getting angry and barking at the wrong tree.

When LTTE is broken down so that is no longer a popular movement, those who openly support them politically will disappear since it is not self-fulfilling for them.

That is why continued military pressure and our good behavior is very necessary.

The narrow minded Sinhalese racists are liability just like LTTE is liability for Tamil people.

"Ananda-USA is brainwashing others by calling you an LTTE agent."

You got to realize the difference between a cyberspace personality and real life personality. Your character here is defined by what you write. Out in the normal world, how you look, sound etc etc defines you character. In the blog, nobody knows you or me personally. May be we have met somewhere else but here we don't know each other. In addition, we are not under anybody's pressure to accept what one particular person says. Therefore, brainwashing is an unlikely scenario. Furthermore, there are enough LTTE agents here who want to spread disinformation which will cause to intensely scrutinize what anybody writes. There are well known LTTE supporters here like Bahirav, Peter etc and any association with them makes you suspicious. Therefore, you and I will be judged by what we say than what others say about you or I. Please don't underestimate the intelligence of the readers here.

[I would like to cut down our military by 70% of so after the war is over. Last thing I'd like to see is another Parkisthan in Sri Lanka.]

Really? And leave our country defenceless again against internal and external enemies? It took us 30 years to build the SLDF we have now, to defeat a rag-tag group that we allowed to grow into a near conventional army.

The next time we are caught with our proverbial pants down, we may not have that much time to build an army, and SL may not survive intact.

I believe India is on its way to breaking up....and the first state to secede may well be Tamil Nadu. Then, SL will have face Tamil Nadu's 80 million people reaching out to create a Greater Dravidian Nation, with the first "Greater" part in Sri Lanka. As the boy scouts say, "be prepared"; it will be too late to do it after the horse has been stolen again! Prevention is much better than a Cure.

Why pick Pakistan as the model even though, despite Pakistan's poor record of governance, the Pakistani Army is the only national entity holding the country together in the face of both external and internal enemies?

Why not select Switzerland, Taiwan, Greece and Israel as the comparative models....all countries with large potential enemies among near neighbors? They all have large armies and universal military service, and have fended off, or are fending off, their enemies quite successfully.

To suppress any prospect of a renewed guerilla conflict, we will need many boots on the ground everywhere in Sri Lanka. If the US learned any lesson in Iraq, it is that a high-tech army configured to fight conventional armies, cannot suppress wide-spread guerilla movements...you need the preponderant presence of many boots on the ground for that; your own troops or those of allied locals. The second lesson they learned (in Iraq and Vietnam), is that foreign armies that must ultimately go home, and can't do it by themselves; you need the majority of local people to do it for themselves. Fortunately, Sri Lanka is our own country, and we are the "local people," and we can do it, especially if we homogenize the population countrywide.

When you are caught in a difficult situation, you have to do whatever it takes to survive; and a large Peoples Self Defense Force is precisely what we need.

Clever diplomacy is important, as I also pointed out in my post, but we have to rely on developing our own internal strength as the core/primary defensive weapon.

An oft quoted axiom of diplomacy is that there are no permanent friendships between countries, there are only permanent national interests. Every powerful ally we rely on will want its own pound of flesh in return...Sri Lanka's own history provides many examples (e.g., Use the Dutch to kick out the Portuguese, use the British to kick out the Dutch, until the British swallowed us whole). Therefore, we cannot rely solely on diplomacy; our continued existence as a people and a nation depends on it.

[While Prabhakaran killed one Indian, Rajiv Gandhi, \he has blown to bits and hacked into pieces over 100,000 Sri Lankans. He murdered a Sri Lankan President Premadasa, Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar, and every moderate SL Tamil leader who opposed him. Pray tell me, why we Sri Lankans should handover this monster to India, not valuing the life of our own President over Rajiv Gandhi's life, and over 100,000 of our own citizens above that of Rajiv Gandhi? I hope he has the decency to take his own life, or be killed by his own subordinates; he must pay for his crimes against Sri Lankans.

" Well, if you look at "Srilankan"'s post history, you will see that he is real sellout."

The bottom line is both Tamils and Sinhalese have been sellouts. We both wanted the best for us at the expense of our underprivileged brothers and sisters.

Of cause, they are our heroes and brave hearts when they fight the war to keep our luxury life alive.

Sri Lanka is one of the most discriminating nations in the world regardless whether you are a Tamil or Sinhalese.

We discriminate based on race/religion/sex/skin color/what country we work/age/ and you name it.

I see two kinds of expatriates. The most troubling kind is the one who consider Sri Lanka is the heaven since they are the most rich and powerful.

The other kind is the one who struggle with every aspect of their lives.

The unfortunate truth is that those who fight risking their lives at the front line will never get to see the benefit out of defeating LTTE. The rich and powerful has their net already set to collect all the future wealth coming out of foreign investment coming after defeating LTTE.

SL Gunesekara: A catholic/freethinker. A great philosopher great man, no political future, but a guardian against separatism.

Wimal: Politician, ambitious, but so far stood for the right thing. Bandwagon and sometimes bit too much. But a thinking brain, man with skills. Guardian against separatism.

Chamipika: Almost all the same like Wimal, but this guy makes racist remarks which wimal never did. Has stronger philosophy and knowledge. educated man

Rathana thero: Hardliner in nationalist camp, but makes sense. He is one of the generals who led the peaceful march to Mavil Aru. I rem him pushing against the then commander Nanda M to enter tiger area and open the gate. Note that they had no weapons, but the mass. This monk was instrumental in getting then commander to promise him to start the offensive right there [in front of TV camera]. By that time we never thot it will go ahead, honestly. We were fed up with Ranil/CBK Pisstalks and fat lies by military chiefs.

ManelMal/PNM: No political ambitions. Guardian against separatism. But sometimes racists flock together with them.

NFF/JHU: Politically motivated. Philosophically nationalist

JVP: Politically motivated. Philosophically marxist and/or nationalist and/or opportunist.

Some more good deeds by these ppl:

- JVP Walking away from CBK govt when P-TOM was forcibly introduced.

- When Ranil was marching mass parades running havoc in SL for president to go home, JHU monks filed a supreme court petition to prove that CBK should end her term 1yr before she planned, hence ending the speculation of next potential betrayal called P-TOM.

- Lawyers of this collective movement separated north and east again in supreme court, abolishing another JRJ bullshit [I hate that bastard].

Note that we cannot get 100% saints. But the ppl we have, human at their best, can be collectively used to gain a good goal. What MR did was that. MR borrowed the strength, morale and slogans of these ppl, and brought them to a pluralist framework. Today he's the only tamil speaking leader of a nation figting a war for peace and destroying racism for pluralism. I have my diff with his economic policy etc, but he is a great leader indeed.

Individually I do not agree with any of them. But I praise them for the good they did.

Sorry mate, I would not pay interest in your comments about other bloggers. I always say, none of these personalities entertain or haunt my mind [although I'm happy for their company], nor do their words echo in my ears. I'm only taking the meaning, ideas, and the concepts.

SLDFs should take townships with hospitals now.

mula, tharmapuram, etc. should be taken. this way we can deny medical facilities to tigers. they may still have some though but would be far inadequate.

thereafter we should get into the HARVESTING mode ASAP. even now fleeing tigers can be attacked. according to a pro-LTTE site, LTTE managed to save a number of their trapped cadres. MoD doesn't say traped terrorists in the EPS sector were killed giving room to speculation that they fled to safety.

if i were vesapillai, i still would have MANY options. but all hinges on limited manpower and available assets.

it is like restructuring a company. a restructured company is easier to manage. tigers to mulaitivu jungles is like fish to water. we MUST seek them and destroy them soon.

Re: The big army idea.

Count me too. But my concern is, how to fund the big army. One thing we can do is to start war related industry. From bullets to air crafts. We can build them all under a company earning for SLDF spending. It will bring money from weaponry exports, and provide cheap local products cutting weaponry imports.

The reason why Israel excelled is the same for us. We are experts on the needs of this type of war. We have live field for testing. We can be the cutting innovative edge for research on war against terrorism.

If the govt won't do this, entrepreneurs [like Ananda] also can.

Re: ReallyCold and others who debate on motive and definition of patriot

Let's reply/ignore them for ideas. I really don't know who they are. Let's be decent in replying meaningful comments, ignoring others, and pointing the mis-information if we see something which makes us think as supporting other side.

Not only for them, it applies to anyone including me.

Everyone pls let's not flood the blog again. After all it maybe the real motive of one mole among us.

"Lt Gen Balagalla and and MI Director Hendrawitharana..."

- Probably the biggest breathrough of all of Eelam wars was done by these two. They've done the biggest damage to LTTE in a difficult time in a cunning way..

Good...let us know little bit more about it.

Rana said...

Good Morning Guys,

Wonderful news thanks to DW. It is great to see our mother land is gradually cleaned up by SLDF. The malign cancer called LTTP is steadily and successfully being removed by SLA with clinical efficiency.

My heartiest thanks to His Excellency MR, Hon. GR, Gen. SF and all other brave hearts and it goes like this;


Nation is a golden territory, Buddha Sasanaya shows the way like a glittering gem,
If there is somebody to protect it, it is you my son, no one else.

Welcome aboard, Sujeewa!

Yes, I have made the same arguments and have been proposing Military R&D coupled to Military manufacturing in Sri Lanka as a way to pay for the big Army in many previous posts.

In addition, the SLDF can serve as a means of undertaking TRAINING of Sri Lankans, and DEVELOPING the country in civilian areas as well.

They are suited to these roles is because they have facilities, equipment and people that are largely unused during peacetime.

They can train machinists, welders, engineers, nurses, computer technicians etc at the low end, and even engineers, scientists, accountants, managers, doctors etc at the high end!

An example of the national development role, is the role of the US Army Corps of engineers in constructing dams, flood control structures, canals, roads, bridges and highways in the US.

If you are interested, you can read my previous, more detailed, posts on these subjects, at this blog.

Sujeewa Kokawala, you are such a delight to read man. I share your opinions. I appreciate MR for his leadership that brought the war victories and "hope". But I have never been a good fan of him when it comes to economics and democracy. But considering the alternatives (or lack of them) I guess MR should serve both his presidential terms for the sake of the stability of Sri Lanka.

Thank you bro.
Only "Sri Lankan Matha" can beat that.
Here is another trbute.

A personal response here. Time to start your own blog if you haven't mate. You write a lot of note worthy stuff. Comments are not the best way to archive :)

Yeah I did read some, but as I always say, 1000 comments in four days is hardly readable. Considering 50% bullshit in it.

BTW, using SLDF for disaster management and having a coast guard to safe guard tourists and other oceanic recreationists is a good idea, I think. SLDF does disaster management, but in an adhoc way. What we need is a division ready to be deployed to save lives.

These brave hearts can be used in many ways w/o being a burden.

Waru said...

All LTTE sympathizers are talking about Army has taken a Ghost Town(Kili). But no one is talking about how it became a ghost town.

Isuru said...

Does LTTE still retain the ability to launch an effective counter offensive? What I mean by offensive is not to reclaim land as I think that it must be beyond reach now. What I mean by effective is a one that can kill quite a number of our troops and give a glimpse of hope to the diaspora to send in thier checks for a future struggle.
If they are able to launch an effective counter offensive then what is the most likely target, do you reckon?

Brave1 said...

In a modern state coast guard disaster management are civilian affairs and these areas has their own professional specialties as supported by their own post graduate degree programs.

I believe SLDFs focus shall not be diluted with broadening the scope.

I believe the victory we are witnessing is a reason good enough to retain a retain a large army.

I believe evolving Asian supper powers and need to hob nob with them will demand even bigger investments into SLDF. I think we'll require to invest lot more into SLAF and SLN. SLAF shall be equiped with air superiority platforms and SLN shall be able to field platforms capable of responding to aggression by potentially belligerent India.

Unless otherwise SLDF is equipped sufficiently the deterrence against future form of LTTE will not there and potential aggressive countries will try to exploit our weakness.

I believe we should have be aware to this notion and shall not purely rely on good officers of our diplomatic community.

Moshe Dayan said...

[SLDFs should take townships with hospitals now.]

[thereafter we should get into the HARVESTING mode ASAP. even now fleeing tigers can be attacked.]

[we MUST seek them and destroy them soon.]

As you said, HARVESTING the LTTE cadres before they disperse and blend into the general population or hide in the jungles, is very important.

There will never again be a better opportunity to do that than now, when they are concentrated in a small area and running like headless chickens!

Brave1 said...

Another area we'll need to strengthen is the Intelligence. We should posses an intelligence arm sufficiently competent to conduct covert operations international and to infiltrate diaspora led separatist movements. Some of our current assets (man power and equipment) can be channeled to this important area.

Brave1 said...

[I believe SLDFs focus shall not be diluted with broadening the scope.]

If Sri Lanka has the money to sustain a large expanded SLDF without generating at least a part of the income required to support the SLDF, I would agree with you.

But, Sri Lanka is too poor for that. In peacetime, the SLDF will represent an overhead burden that must be supported by the tax payers. So, what can we do to somehow maintain a large SLDF which is essential to secure the country in the face of the threats we face now, and will face a 100 years from now?

We make it possible for the SLDF to generate an income. We give them an additional peacetime role in Military production and national development; that's how.

That is how Israel does it. The IDF is supported to a very large extent by military production. It also has the additional benefits of embedding those technologies within the country: no foreign source can cut off the arms needed to defend the nation.

Finally, it will bring the SLDF into intimate productive contact with ordinary people in a more positive way, and will help instill greater sense of patriotism among all of the people in the country.

I would like to see the dawn of a day in which every citizen of the country has served in the SLDF some time of their lives; that the notion of serving in the common defense of the nation is not a duty of the few, but of the many.

Rana said...

Moshi, mate.

Do not endeavour your maternal ancestor in the art of imbibing predestined chicken.


Similarly bro, I think, SF knows exactly what he is doing. By the time this war is over almost all the tigers will see the eelam 06 feets below the surface of Wanni.

Don't forget that SF has a blood feud against LTTP.

Brave1 said...


I have no issue in letting SLDF run its own defense industry like Singapore. As such the competencies and skill requirements match to a certain extent.

With respect to Disaster Management and Coast Guard...these area are purely civlian.

On top of that these areas will not generate income.

However much the economic pressure...short to medium term...downsizing of the SLDF should be a taboo.

When looking at IDF you need to remind yourself the extensive integration the IDF has with USDF. And this form a indirect way of funding IDF by USDF and such generosity will not be able to enjoy.

As such the bitter reality would be that...tight belt we have got use to wear should be there for the medium term.

Brave1 said...

On the other hand..when you consider the economic performance of SL....

We should not be too concern about the future...SL economy has been growing..even though the ELam wars were around.

Mid eighties GDP was 600USD and today it is closer to 2000USD and Western Province it is closer to 3000USD.

So...I believe our economic activity will take off and that in-turn would enable us to support a SLDF which is an excellent deterence.

Does anybody know why the MTV/MBC tv station in Pannipitiya may have been attacked by a gang? Who could have done it? Does this station have any particular agenda wrt the war?

Brave1 said...


Maharajah...related media institutions were always overtly sympathetic towards LTTE. and hence I have no pity.

Rana said...


As far as, I can remember, Sirasa TV station belongs to Shan Wickramasinghe who is closely related to Ranil Wickramasinghe. Sirasa has been anti MR, GR and SF for last 2-3 years. If you remember Mervin Silva several times attacked sirasa camera mans.

This may be the reason.

Ah, more detail. Thanks!

Welcome back, Rana. Hope you had a great vacation. We have been killing the keyboards in your absence!

Brave1 said...

Ananda + Rana,

Sirasa is not in Shan Wicks media set up. Sirasa is Maharajah. so you guys are not in SL. :)

Ananda-USA said...


Thanks for the clarification. I am in the US, and Rana is in NZ.


Brave1 said...

...and Sirasa has been pro-LTTE and anti-anti LTTE from long time ago...and as a result Sirasa is anti MR because Mr is anti-LTTE.

Brave1 said...


Good...this new year is gonna be BIG.

This new year is BIG.

..and I know..I can tell my small ones and their small ones..that we lived when history was making...we live among brave hearts who took the bullet...

Man..quite an emotional..thing.

Rana said...


Yes, brother. I have been away for nearly 20 years.

That is why, I do not press on expanding SLA. I thought those who live in SL should decide on the future of SLDF rather than us expatriates of SL.

Rana said...


//Welcome back, Rana. Hope you had a great vacation. We have been killing the keyboards in your absence!//

Yes, Sir!

Very good break, I had few drinks with Amma Gahai and Saman, also missed a lunch with Mayilrawana by a whisker.

Though, I was on the run during last two weeks, read all posts from you, Sujeewa and Moshe and most of others.
