LTTE trying to hold on through harassing technique

An LTTE video was released recently showing what seems to be a Mechanized Infantry-style attack. A few soldiers were killed in the attack at Puthukudiirippu and the LTTE is obviously making a huge deal out of it, as you can see in the video.

The video first shows what looks like a Chinese YW-531H (T-85), an older version of the T-89, which the SLA Mech Infantry Division uses extensively now. From external appearance the two units look similar except for the rear doors (3rd frame). Next, a mounted MPMG is shown (4th frame).

The following frames of the video show the tail of the attack and no actual combat is shown as in previous LTTE videos. Bodies of a few SLA soldiers are shown at a road-side checkpoint and a field unit established at a abandoned civilian house, which was obviously raided and taken by surprise by the armoured attack.

The T-85 is actually a former Army APC captured from Muhamalai a few years ago along with a T-55 MBT. In the attack the APC was subsequently destroyed in an RPG-7 HEAT attack and 13 tigers in it were incinerated.

The attempt is an example of the current situation in the Vanni where the Tigers are cornered into an area and the Army's advance has become highly complicated due to the human shield. The civilians have nowhere to run except into the hands of the Army, which was happening until the suicide attack.

Following the suicide attack, the flow of civilians has started to only trickle-in, whereas thousands, on one occasion as many as 6,000 civilians were reaching the Army almost on a daily basis prior to the attack. The attack was a message to civilians that the Tigers can still terrorize them. Although it killed 24 soldiers, the message is towards the civilians who will now fear harassment by the Army (regular checking, detention of suspects etc)

The Tigers strategy is to harass the Army from behind the civilian cover by raiding the Army FDL, particularly around Puthukudirippu. There is also a very strong indication that Velupillai Prabhakaran is still hiding in the remaining tiger territory. How long this trend will continue is an interesting question.

A good question.. How long can LTTE Hold? Not many days brothers not many days. These are the desperate attempts that they are taking in the Final Stages. Future situations will be entiarly depends on how SLA handles the "Civilian " Factor.

Theres a saying."A Candle is burning brighter when its about to finish" . Good Luck LTTE

How to sponsor the education of a child of a fallen/disabled soldier

1. You can now easily sponsor a child of a fallen/disabled soldier through the Seva Vanitha scholorship program

2. You will be sending your contribution directly into the child's account (It does not go into a fund and there are no involement of 3rd parties)

3. Stipulated monthly amount is US$10 (Rs750-1000). You can contribute more if you like.

4. Duration of the scholorship can be decided by you. It can be 1 year or more.

5. Sevavanitha will provide you with the child's details along with contact info. You can contact the family directly and verify all the details yourself before depositing funds. Process is very transparent.

Please email me at hareen_m@yahoo.com for the application form and a detailed description of the process.

DW, thank you for the interesting update, you have almost hit your old form again.

One of the most important points for me in this update is "The attack was a message to civilians that the Tigers can still terrorize them." This is the reason why INGOs, NGOs and the IC must give GSL all the support to bring the LTTE down ASAP.

Thanks DW

So I urge tamils to do better than muslims did. Burn the whole village if you have to. But we cant take this laying down

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright said...

Rathnayake,
Interesting observation. Tried it. All the pics have dates in October. One picture, the one looking through a mortar launchher (i think) has a time of 23:53. It has been taken in day light though. So it might be that the camera date and time is incorrect. Still, all the pictures have different dates and times. Strange... Desparados!

these are the pics of T-85s

if you look close u can see only 5 wheels running on the tracks. But the video in LTTE sites clearly show 6 wheels.

it looks more like a russian mande Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty class one (BMP-1) amphibious armored personell carrier. which SLA uses extensively.. i think we have close to a 1000 of these

rathnayake,

My nephew thought he was bright when he tried to convince me that he had taken a photo of the future by changing the time/date setting on our camera.

I just went with it for not wanting to upset the little guy.

Same goes for you.

Thanks for enlightening me.

Peter said...

Yes these are fake article.. yes that true..today I came to know that LTTE going to get a good webmaster to handle the content on the Tamilnet.

Peter said...

Wish I could take you down into a bunker and show you how its done just like I did with my nephew.

Peter said...

Fake articles or not they are quite informative and keep diaspora well informed.

Hiranthe said...

Thanks DW for the update.

Any news on Soosai?

Is Velu still in the area? Can they escape through their 7km long tunnel? Have we looked in to those areas and action taken...This tunnel may end up in SLA controlled areas and we will have to be very vigilent.

Velu can escape in one hand and 100's or brainwashed monkeys can appear behind the defence line and attack us...

Peter said...

We are going to do a big brutal attack to civilians. These days we don’t have enough explosives. Even for rangeen 95 mine we are now using 50g per mine. We used to put 300g. So we need more explosive to kill uncontrollable Tamils.

Today also there were 7000 gone out from our area. We cant tolerate this anymore.
Please try to understand current situation and send some money and explosive .

Charles Anthony said...

everybody should watch this vedio. its 15 minutes. peter is this the best you can do what a shame.

Peter said...

yes there is a another video we are work on it. in the next video we will opt all the mistakes.

so to do all these things we need money...some how collect some money from our British and Canadian people send us. when you send do deposit to my account. then i will handover to our Thlaivar, Our Sun good

duzz said...

jack,

8 civilians dead.+64 injured.

on the APC issue,

The main gun seems to be a 73mm heavy weapon. a previous video showed it being fired

Peter said...

fake peter is here.. his ID ending 561... be aware...

isurujosh said...

rathnayake, you are completely off the point.
nobody is being taken on a ride by ltte.
explanation:
1) tamil diaspora see and listen to what they want to see and hear. they believe whatever the way pro-ltte sites because their love is not to the poor civilians of vanni but to vegence on sinhalese. in fact it is the diaspora that is taking the vanni civilians on a ride to fight for their egositic goal.
2) bbc sri lankan service is full of people who are either on payroll of ltte or genuinely commited to the cause of the ltte. tamil seperatist movement is lot more richer and influential than you can ever imagine.
3) NGO local heads and lot of accomplices are on the payroll of the ltte.

isurujosh said...

there were too many ambulances going from ratmalane side to colombo past wellawatte today. something is definitely up.

Gringo said...

[Troops of 58 Division commanded by Brigadier Shavindar Silva have located a huge LTTE printing press while conducting consolidating and search operations in general area Sugandhirapuram, Mullaittivu, this morning, the military said.

A few printing machines were also found inside the printing press premises.

An LTTE hand grenade manufacturing plant adjacent to the printing press was also located by the troops of the same division, the military added.

Meanwhile, troops of Task Force 4 (TF4) have located another LTTE printing and cutting machine while conducting search and clear operations in south of Puthukudiyirippu.

The printing and cutting machine is 12 feet long and it had been left away by the fleeing terrorists due to the effective military ]

Another great day, then!

.. and how comforting to see... that LTTE seem to be still hoping for a miracle ceasefire and reverse the march of the SLDF!

Let us roast the LTTE pigs in low heat.... Slow cooking is recommended.

This is skillful planning by GOSL to show the world... the true face of the LTTE terrorists... every passing day… and a very slow death!!!

The Punisher said...

oohh...time tokick ass.

Hey Peter pan, counting down the soldiers, well let me count the area your in, 300 sqr km, 250 sqr km, 200 sqr km, 150 sqr km and by tommorow it will be 100 ass hole.

rathnayake said...

isurujosh....

have you checked the article and photos?

Yes...as you said..BBC and the Pro LTTE INGO and the NGO are fully depend on the LTTE & LTTE diaspora's Money...

Then it seems to be LTTE & LTTE's Diaspore is taken for ride by other vendors...

oh... some time their Profit earning on Killing civilians and getting money from diaspora to hide the truth..

then its seems to be BBC and INGO and NGOs doing a kind of Highjacking job?????

The Punisher said...

look man..see they come amongst the tamil IDP's dressed as civilians and blast themselves killing there own people, who are they fighting, whats there cause, tamil independace or for the sake of getting the fat pig one extra day with 3 meals of Biriyani ha..?bloody clowns, all of them, now its a fight to give the diaspora to come and did a grave and die, and in the mean time have innocent tamils die for there sake.

Reports state that the LTTE terrorists are driving the civilians towards East from the safe zone. The LTTE are continuing to oppress the innocent civilians who are trying to escape in to the safe zone and in to the protection of the troops.



Meanwhile today morning (11) troops of the Task force 4 recovered a large book cutter and Book pressing machine used by the LTTE during a search operation conducted in PUTHUKUDUERIPPU South area.

No peter no Mahen...where are u???? come battle is ready for you. i am searching more fake article with document evidence

SLK User said...

isurujosh,

I also agree with you, noticed many ambulances running towards Colombo passing Dehiwala. Anybody knows what is going on? Are they bringing patients of PTK hospitals to Colombo?

velluprabhakaran said...

[[[How long this trend will continue is an interesting question.]]]

shorter the better. army will somehow have to get over the dificulty soon. snipers will have to perform at maximium skill.

the longer this drags on the more problems for GOSL in the media front. but shouldn't rush it and mess it up. fat pig's an internationally condemned man now. so less pressure for GOSL.

it's a mystery why air force can't guess his location with the shrunken area though. unless SLA wants to destroy LTTE first & vesapilley last?

i suspect SLAF & army knows the location but waiting for some reason.

vesapilley business is too much of a mystery.

Thanks for update..:)

The APC shown on video looks like a BMP-1.The fuel-tanks are at the back-doors..The truck mounted heavy machine gun is probably a 14.5mm AA unit?..and weird footage of the Tigers manually dragging about a 20mm or higher caliber gun attached to an improvised wheel-type carrier..probably from captured dvoras??

And Long ranger gave a figure of the Tigers operating 3 MBT's and 2 BMP's, and quite a few Buffel APC's..but the question is, do they have sufficient ammo for the Tanks and APC's,or have they manufactured their own indigenously??..thanks

From LankaPage.com

Sri Lanka::
* U.S. Treasury imposes sanctions on Tamil front organization striking a blow to LTTE
Wednesday, February 11, 2009, 19:29 GMT, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.


Feb 11, Washington, DC: The United States Department of Treasury today designated the Maryland-based Tamil Foundation as a front organization for the LTTE terrorist outfit of Sri Lanka under Executive Order 13224 which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism.

The Treasury Department announced that under the Executive Order, any assets the Tamil Foundation has under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, and U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in any transactions with the Tamil Foundation.

The head of the Tamil Foundation is also the president of the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization in the United States, which was banned in the U.S. as a terrorist support group in November 2007.

The statement said the Tamil Foundation and the TRO have co-mingled funds and carried out coordinated financial actions for some time and the two organizations were linked through a matching gift program facilitated by the common leadership of both.

"The LTTE, like other terrorist groups, has relied on so-called charities to raise funds and advance its violent aims," said Adam J. Szubin, Director of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control.

"We will continue to aggressively target attempts by any terrorist group to hide behind charities, front companies, or name changes to propagate terror against innocents around the world," Szubin added.

The Tamil Foundation is registered in based at 517 E. Oldtown Road, Cumberland, MD 21502, with a Tax ID number of 52-1699409.

US Department of Justice should investigate the main person behind www.tamilsagainstgenocide.org, who is Jayantha Gnanakoon.

He is the 'God Father' of LTTE fund-raising in the US. He keeps his hands clean while the others do the dirty work for him.

tamilsagainstgenocide.org laundered lot of dirty LTTE money received from all around the world through several LTTE front organisations call T4J, Tamilsforjustice, JusticeforTamils, TamilSangam, Canadian Tamil Congress etc under the leadership Jayantha and Charles Gnanakoon.

It is time that US authorities investigate the acts of these organisations too and take necessary actions against them.

Another indication Velu is still in the area is, LTTE is creating a situation that will tempt SL Army to have international monitors. Since surrender negotiations failed, if it comes to last resort, Velu may try to surrender to International Monitors so that he and the family cannot be killed to pieces at first sight.

has the nade-sung coward escaped???

toiletnet says the LTTE "political wing" made a (BS) statement without mentioning nade-sung made it!!

may be the coward has escaped!

"All the countries of the world that condemn the ongoing humanitarian tragedy, should also come forward to exert pressure on the Sri Lankan state to immediately agree on a ceasefire and engage in negotiations to resolve the conflict, said the statement of the political division of the LTTE."

-TN

what for?? how many ceasefires we had. they failed to solve the problem.

lets battle it out.

Moshe Dyan said...

OTOH if the LTTE still believes the "sinhala state" (don't know where it is in the world map) that is doing "genocide" can be forced to a negotiated settlement, tigers must be joking.

Over 32,500 civilians flee uncleared areas

The Government yesterday said over 32,500 civilians out of the total population of 113, 832 in the Mullaitivu district have fled uncleared areas and sought protection with the Forces.

Media Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena said 6,000 civilians have arrived per day in cleared areas since last week and the Government has launched a comprehensive program to ensure their safety and welfare.

The Minister said the number of civilians coming to cleared areas have seen a drastic rise since last week despite a series of terrorist atrocities by the LTTE targeting members of their own community.

These civilians, initially accommodated at temporary camps, are taken to welfare villages where all facilities have been made available for them within two days, the Minister said.

Senior Presidential Advisor Basil Rajapaksa MP is personally looking into the welfare and safety of these civilians and special programs are in place to take the injured civilians to the Anuradhapura and Vavuniya hospitals, he said.

Minister Abeywardena said the Government has not received funds from any local or international organisation to continue this program and sought financial assistance from civil society organisations to be channeled for this through the Government.

“No international or local organisation provided funds for this program. It is the Government that funds this program. We expect financial assistance from civil society organisations to make this program a success.”

Harry Potter said...

Gutikewa,

It is good to see Tamil civilians are disobeying LTTE and its leadership. It also means tigers ability and power to stand against SLA is melting away.

However, latest news reports indicate that tigers are chasing civilians away from SLG declared “no fire” zone to eastern coastal areas making it harder for them to crossover.

International opinions gradually turning against LTTE, more and more people including Tamils are abandoning LTTE rapidly.

Sure way to go!

onecountry said...

Well.. I dont think latest development is good for us. SLA was planning to take the entire coastal belt. LTTE sensed it and now moving civilians to that area which will prevent SLA from capturing that area. LTTE uses the civilians like a herd of cattle. Unfortunate, but AI, UN and other international organization do not see what LTTE is doing.

Harry Potter said...

@ Ananda-USA,

All the more reason to become militarily and economically strong and independent of India now.

I am happy if SL can do it but it is easier to say than done.

SURVIVAL as a nation must precede making PROFIT through BUSINESS ventures with India.

What is correct for business and good business practices are as same as running a successful country towards prosperity.

Rest of the post is based on anti Indian feelings that arose after RAW involvement with LTTE and forcing JRJ government accept Indian solution for the conflict.

It is my belief that the conditions and political environment prevailed in SL prior to 2005 have changed and Indian foreign policy also towards SL has changed since then.

As you see our thinking patterns are far apart. Therefore no point of continuing the debate and it is better we agree to disagree.
Thanks.

Harry Potter said...

MathaMathika,

Nothing in the Universe is free from craving even atoms and sub atomics!!!

If atoms have no desires, they will not become molecules!!!


Agree……. Quantum theory explains:

Quarks are the smallest subatomic particles that exist individually in the universe. They are born from vacuum (energy) as a pair of quark and anti-quark. Most of these quarks rejoin with anti-quarks and annihilate themselves but others proceed further to form protons and neutrons.
Each proton (or neutron) is made of three quarks - but the individual masses of these quarks only add up to about 1% of the proton's mass. So what accounts for the rest of it?
Theory says it is created by the force that binds quarks together, called the strong nuclear force. In quantum terms, the strong force is carried by a field of virtual particles called gluons, randomly popping into existence and disappearing again. The energy of these vacuum fluctuations has to be included in the total mass of the proton and neutron.
Quark-antiquark pairs can pop up and momentarily transform a proton into a different, more exotic particle. In fact, the true proton is the sum of all these possibilities going on at once.

Buddhism (patichcha samuppada) explains:
"Everything arises dependent on conditions". If we assume state of “arahath” as the total purification of the mind and such a mind equivalent to pure energy without desires for attachment or detachment. Such state of mind can stay long durations (aeons) without developing desires back. However, they are not permanent and ultimately they develop desires for attachment and detachment again. The next step is pure energy becoming matter (quarks) and energy with desires (gluons) to form subatomic particles, atoms and molecules.
Rebirth after death of an individual is a similar process. Death is really detachment from matter temporally but none purified mind gather matter again to complete the cycle.
Quantum mechanics and uncertainty principle of quantum theory substantially proves human behaviour, nirvana and anathma theory.

The American physicist Robert Openheimer made an analogy to Buddhism when describing the Heisenberg uncertainty principle:

If we ask, for instance, whether the position of the electron remains the same, we must say 'no;' if we ask whether the electron's position changes with time, we must say 'no;' if we ask whether the electron is at rest, we must say 'no;' if we ask whether it is in motion, we must say 'no.' The Buddha has given such answers when interrogated as to the conditions of man's self after his death; but they are not familiar answers for the tradition of seventeenth and eighteenth-century science.

Moshe Dyan said...

harry,

"What is correct for business and good business practices are as same as running a successful country towards prosperity."

no.

at a higher level, somewhat yes, but in the given context, NO.

e.g. b4 the war there was thriving trade between tamil madu and jaffna. it was COMPLETELY out of control of the govt. no import duties, drugs, porn, weapons, etc. flooded the country through this channel.

once the war ends this can recommence and i can see many ppl with vested interests are shouting for it from now onwards!! these should not happen as they want. SEVERE restrictions must be placed to control trade although it is not going to be popular.

trade for the sake of trade is HIGHLY DANGEROUS between jaffna and tamil madu.

Moshe Dyan said...

Robert Openheimer!!

Harry Potter said...

Moshe,

You have taken my writing out of the context. What I meant is the big picture not small scale details. What you said is completely true and I agree too.

I was talking about government policies and those policies should be governed by sound business policies. Illicit trade between TN and Jaffna must be abolished and international trade must channel through official avenues that are subjected to custom laws and taxes.

Our policies towards China and Pakistan are sound and my expectation that SL should do the same with India.

Looks like you can find some bullshit to write if you want to.
Anyway people like code red must believe that things are over. I guess Sri Lanka is going to win the war. The dispora are not going to get retrenched and return home. The sri lankan economy is going to boom.

Anyway lets see. As desperate as people like you are for an end it will come. However it will be that eelam get her right place in the sun. I will see how long the sri lankan government and its propaganda stooges will continue to spew out junk. The economy has collapsed and retrenchments are picking up in Sri Lanka. Maybe thats why the comments are reducing.

Whats the black market value of the rupee. 130? to the US dollar

Navindran said...

rathnayake only defencwire tells the truth so why do you still go to tamilnet to read the news. Opps its not the eelam people who have a problem with the news. Its you who do not trust your government, your propganda machinery that need tamilnet to give you the truth.

I see sad cases on your end. Dubai has gone bust too. Hence many of the camel jockeys here will have to go home. So Sad.

Harry Potter said...

MathaMathika,

What puzzles me is why the Anathma doctrine is not explained in its finer details to SL lay society..


This Buddhist doctrine of rebirth should be distinguished from the theory of reincarnation which implies the transmigration of a soul and its invariable material rebirth. Buddhism denies the existence of an unchanging or eternal soul.

According to “Abhidhamma” explanation of thought process; every moment there is birth, every moment there is death. The arising of one thought-moment means the passing away of another thought-moment and vice versa. In the course of one life-time there is momentary rebirth without a soul. The process will continue even after death if mind is not purified before death.

Purified mind has pure undifferentiated energy with no desire to attach or detach to matter. Non purified mind has differentiated energy with varying degree of desire to attach or detach with matter.

Lord Buddha, in his second sermon after enlightenment (one after Damsak Pewathum Sutta which is called Anatta Lakkana Sutta), to 05 disciples explained the theory of Anatta (Anathma).

In SL today there is confusion between rebirth and reincarnation mostly due to some pundits like Dr. Granville D preaching on reincarnation and (MANOKAYA) astral body concepts as well as some people talking about their previous life experiences.

Moshe Dyan said...

navindran,

the SL economy is going to have a massive boost.

ever heard of a country (except israel) that SUDDENLY gains tens of thousands of square kilometers of land???

along with land comes opportunities. for industries there are factors (land, labour, entrepreneurship and capital). land is the only one that cannot be regenerated. but that we SUDDENLY got heaps!!

MANY local & foreign investors are ALREADY planning to invest in this NEW FOUND landmass and business will thrive. chena boyz will be singing baila, enough land!!


OTOH the tamil ezham economy will be reduced to zero. SL economy will grow at the expense of the TE economy.

so who will win the economic battle? the winner takes it all.

navindran, you can join HINDRAF.

TropicalStorm said...

Moshe

The economic miracle we were talking of may not come in the form of foreign investment right now. There's too much uncertainty out there right now.

Instead it will be from defence expenditure savings, a few years down the road. Even that will not happen for at least one more year, until the mop-up ops end.

When the global economy picks up, emerging markets will lead the rally. SL will stand great opps in that line up for investments, as is seen in the readiness of risk managers to assess it as a potential 'buy' when liquidity eases and confidence returns.

For any SLankans who want to return home and retire in style, this is a good time to park excess funds in a well diversified portfolio of funds.

tropicalstorm,

you are right about foreign investments. EVEN foreign donor funding may not be there (except india) as EU has decided not to. US is doing a GREAT job in the east.

for a start we need to build from labour intensive economic activity.

why didn't SL farmers in 'boarder villages' leave despite SEVERE LTTE attacks?????? this was a major headache for tigers.

bcos they were making MORE money than previously. (many didn't have land b4).

same with fisheries.

this has another benefit. it saves the MOST vulnerable set of ppl and ensures a continued food production. it also gives a QUICK return that will be reinvested. others will fall into place.

i hope govt will shower generous tax benefits for investors in the N-E. this can make industrialisation faster.

(the first one has already hurt the LTTE!!)

"We will be pushing for a United Nations resolution for an immediate ceasefire..."

so you are trying for a ceasefire. what should we do? NEVER allow a ceasefire! thanx for suggesting.

“The Sri Lankan government might defeat the LTTE but it will never defeat 1.5m Tamil diaspora”

we have no problem with them!! the larger the diaspora, the smaller the pool for future tiger recruits!!


guys this is a cracker.

"I am proud to be identified as a Tamil Canadian but I don't think Tamils in Sri Lanka are proud to be Tamil Sri Lankans,"

oh! why bother! if they are not proud to be Tamil Sri Lankans, they will be proud sinhala sri lankans!!

"defeat of the LTTE "will lead to a major crisis for all those Tamils in the diaspora who gave their support to and believed in the struggle"

we knew it when navindran, peter, upul, wesa-pala, sharp were crying here for their money.

"Tamil nationalist feelings will not be gone even if the LTTE leadership is gone. The question is if and how it will be politically mobilised,"

good observation. we will be ready.


"Isolate Sri Lanka" in the world stage is one such strategy Tamils are working on”

why not. SLDFs have US, russian, chinese, indian, israeli, ukranian, british, french, czech, slovenian, south african, pakistani, belgian, etc, etc. weapons. what isolation is that??


"The LTTE insurgency will go on and we will support the struggle through political means until Tamils in Sri Lanka get a genuine political solution."

so you want Tamils in Sri Lanka get a genuine political solution. we will ensure they will NOT get a genuine political solution. a political solution is NOT for tamils, its for sri lanka!!

the gem,

"I don't know whether they will carry on protesting for ever. The new generations already have a comfortable life abroad so won't bother any longer."

join the new gen or keep protesting; its the same result!!!

Sane Voices are being heard all over the World which cannot crushed by Racist Srilankan Government like inside Srilanka.


The international community must come together to put pressure on both sides of the Sri Lankan conflict to stop the killing of innocent civilians, Grant Robertson, New Zealand’s Labour Associate Foreign Affairs Spokesperson said

A ceasefire is needed, and a secure safe haven with international verification needs to be created. ”

The Sri Lankan government is restricting the ability of aid agencies and media to report from the conflict area, which is contributing to the crisis.

“It is disturbing that the BBC World Service has now announced it is suspending its broadcasts because of interference and blocking of broadcasts by Sri Lankan authorities.

This appears to be part of a wider attempt to limit proper monitoring of the crisis. There needs to be an open and transparent approach taken so that aid agencies and media can do their jobs,” Grant Robertson said.

Puran Appu said...

sanercomic,

If you need any figures, let me know. I got the Bloomberg with me.

Veeran said...

The Heat is on United Nations in not properly addressing the concerns of Tamil Civilians. Now World focus is on Falied State Srilanka.

Responding to a question raised at a news briefing at the UN on Tuesday, the UN Secretary General said that he had already dispatched his political director to Sri Lanka and is also considering dispatching a humanitarian assessment team whenever he thinks it's appropriate

The UN chief noted that the Sri Lankan issue is not on the Security Council agenda and the respect for the sovereignty of Member States is another principle he firmly bears in mind.

“However, both the situation in Gaza and Sri Lanka are governed by international humanitarian law. I have consistently expressed my strong concern regarding violations of international standards. First of all, I have expressed consistently my concern at the ongoing violence and drawn attention to the need for a political, and not a military solution, and also specifically drawn attention to the plight of civilians
Meanwhile a UN spokesperson speaking in Geneva called for a cease-fire in Sri Lanka, saying the UN is outraged by the deaths of civilians caught in the military’s drive to defeat the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

“We are outraged by the unnecessary loss of hundreds of lives and the continued suffering of innocent people inside the LTTE-controlled areas,” Ron Redmond, a spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said.

“We are calling on both the Government and the LTTE to halt indiscriminate fighting near civilians,” he said.

B#1 said...

I guess VP is already escaped from SL. And most of the Tamil people believe that VP is still fighting in North with the SLA because he said "Ennudaiya Makkalayum mannum vittu eppavume naan povathu illai".

LTTE is doing some efforts, tamils to believe that he is still in the battle field and our Defencewire too helping him by this statement "There is also a very strong indication that Velupillai Prabhakaran is still hiding in the remaining tiger territory".

Here is a little reply from a Sri Lankan Patriot!

Grant Robertson,

Who the f&ck are you? Do we care who you are either? Check what we have to say about your big talk.

A ceasefire is needed, and a secure safe haven with international verification needs to be created. ”
There will be NO CEASFIRE! So no International as&holes are needed! There is only one call to LTTE - Surrender or Die!

Grant Robertson, New Zealand’s Labour Associate Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Grant who? We do not know who the f&ck he is and we do not care either. We ask the sh&thead to keep out of Sri Lanka. We do not want your advise

It is disturbing that the BBC World Service has now announced it is suspending its broadcasts because of interference and blocking of broadcasts by Sri Lankan authorities

Really Cold,

Isn't it foolish to justify Buddhism using a science which is much inferior to Buddhist Philosophy?

Agreed that science is inferior to Buddhism but science is based on observations which can be verified by anyone under same conditions, therefore widely respected. If we can draw parallels and prove certain aspects of Buddhism using science, it is good for Buddhism.

You cannot ridicule either Buddhism or science, if they support each other and science have long way to go. Also science can only prove things that are related to matter.

i think army should interview the wounded tamil refugees on film describing their horror ordeals under LTTE. then dub it in english, french, japanese, tamil, hindi, german, italian & give it wide publicity on sites like utube etc.

we must first register a site on utube so that devious LTTE terrorists don claim copyrights & get them banned.

the length the dieasspora has gone to claim false copytight claims & get these videos banned prove their power & effectiveness. so instead of giving up we must double the effort & make a massive propaganda drive. it's a sure hit.

we can also give them to our consulates in these western countries for the dieasspora, western politicians & HR activists to see.

This is a very immature statement. Scientists are very amazed by Buddhism. Buddhism is the ultimate truth and there can be nothing good for it.

[You cannot ridicule either Buddhism or science, if they support each other and science have long way to go. Also science can only prove things that are related to matter.]

I am both and therefore can't ridicule either. Buddhism doesn't need any support. Tell me where it needs support?

Very, very interesting...Following is a series of correspondence Don Mahindapala had with Prof Sisira Jayasuriya.
Note how evasive this so called intellectual becomes when asked a direct question that is relevant to some of the claims he is making. Sisira knows that if he answered the question truthfully that would be the end of his career as an LTTE propagandist.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I regret to note that you have not given a valid reason for declining my offer to interview you.

I suppose, if I was a Tamil I would claim this to be another discrimination by a Sinhalese who gives interviews to white journalists but not to a coloured journalist!.

But can I kindly have a reply to this question at least: WHAT IS THE DISCRIMINATION FACED BY THE TAMILS SINCE 1956 WHICH THE SINHALESE HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED?

Your assistance will be appreciated.

Dear Mr Mahindapala,

Regarding the question you pose, all I can say is that - not being exactly a spring chicken - if you have not manged to answer that question after all these years, I am afraid I am not able to help you. I must have dreamt, for example, that all sinhalese public servants had to pass an examination in Tamil proficiency....

I am afraid I do discriminate; not on ethnic or religious grounds but on other grounds. I have enormous respect for many Sinhalese journalists; Lasantha W of course springs to mind. I recall some who were murdered during an earlier period because they maintained integriity, impartiality and a committment to truth and refused to bow down before terrorists, whether, Tamil or Sinhalese. I am sure you have written and writing at length and campaigning hard to defend the freedom of the press and the right of journalists to cover contentious issues freely and fearlessly and to bring the culprits to justice in the case of recent murders of journalists. Your time, I feel, is better spent defending the rights of journalists in sri lanka and ensuring that their killers are put behind bars You are far too distinguished a journalist - I am sure, of the same calibre as Lasantha in terms of bravery and integrity, the absolute refusal to bow down before the powefrul - for a humble academic like me to be graced with an interview. I am honoured - at Least I should feel honoured I guess – but my humility prevents me from accepting such high honour and distracting you from the noble task of defending democracy, freedom and the rights and lives of journalists under threat in sri lanka..

Dear Prof,

Leaving the irrelevancies out, may I get back to the simple question I asked: WHAT IS THE DISCRIMINATION FACED BY THE TAMILS SINCE 1956 WHICH THE
SINHALESE HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED?

Journalists do not ask questions because they don't have their own answers. Nor are journalists "spring chicken", as you state, not to know the answers. They ask questions to find new answers or new perspectives to the old questions. Besides, the point of asking questions is to get answers other than the answers that journalists have. Readers are interested in all shades of opinions and answers. If, for instance, Prof. SJ goes on air and says as a Sinhalese he knows the discrimination faced by the Tamils since 1956 I would immediately assume that you are the kind of person that I must interview to know more about discrimination -- at least more than what I know.

Also, I want to know your answers since you posed as the authority on the subject. So my answers are irrelevant. It is your answers that are important to my interview.

I am also at a loss to know the point you are making about Sinhalese having to sit for an examination in Tamil proficiency. Are you saying, therefore, that there was no discrimination against the Tamils because all public servants from every community had to learn the language of the other communities? So where is the discrimination? Can you kindly state how this fits into your accusation that there was discrimination against the Tamils since 1956?

May I also mention that the best of journalist interview personalities from heads of state to pimps and prostitutes. Journalists do not bestow any glory or humility to the interviewees. It's just another routine job in trying to get to the bottom of issues. Besides, seasoned journalists also know when someone is trying to dodge the issues with evasive answers.

Please note, that I am always ready to learn new things. I would like to learn from an academic holding a professorial chair about the discrimination that the Tamils had experienced since 1956 because my Tamils friends who came out of post-56 era have denied facing discrimination that impeded their progress. As opposed to my experience I am sure you have enough evidence to back up your case. As an academic I trust you would not want to bring disrepute to your University by making wild accusation on any given subject. So please share your exclusive knowledge with me and I will thank you for that.

Yours sincerely,

HLDM

I know there are journalists and journalists. You would be at a loss to know whta was wrrong about sinhalese having to be proficient in tamil - the point is Tamils had to pass exams to show proficiency in sinhala but not the other way around. and, you can do your very 'scholarly journalist act' and ask what is the evidence there was discrimination after 1956; of course the fact thae sinhala was made the 'only official language' in 1956 does not rank as discriminatory in your book. When we give very different meanings to identical words discussion is meaningless. this closes this correspondence on my part.

Subject:* RE: Interview

Dear Prof,

You reveal your total inability to comprehend the known facts (or is it ignorance?) when you wrote: "the point is Tamils had to pass exams to show proficiency in sinhala but not the other way around."

Error 1: All public servants – Sinhalese, Burghers and Tamils – had to learn the languages of the public. Burghers had to learn both Sinhala and Tamil and Sinhalese had to learn Tamil and Tamils had to learn Sinhalese. The logic is simple: If you are a public servant you should know the language of the public. I will give you evidence. Please ring Dr. Donald Weerasiri (now a retired GP in Burwood) who was a government doctor in Sri Lanka before he came to Australia. He had to pass his exam in Tamil because he was practicing in a multi-cultural society where he had to serve Muslim and Tamil patients. Please ring Dr. G. G.Anderson (another retired ENT specialist) who had to learn both Tamil and Sinhalese to be in government service. So what is wrong in asking Tamil doctors to learn Sinhala when they had to serve mostly in Sinhala areas? They are public servants and by definition they should learn the language of the public as the migrated Tamils do in Germany, Norway, etc. The alternative was for the public to learn Tamil or English. Is that what you wanted? Why should only the Tamils object to learn Sinhala? The private sector did not impose this regulation. It was only in the public sector. Besides, to this day the main branches of the government and the private sector are run in English. So where is your argument for discrimination?

All public servants were treated alike and it was their duty to learn the language of the public. Only those with a colonial mentality would argue that public must learn the language of the bureaucracy.

Error 2: Is England administered in French? Is France governed in Russian? Is Australia ruled in Greek though it has a large Greek population? There are nearly 152 communities in Australia. Which of their languages (including the Aboriginals) have even the status of an official language let alone national language? Why do you have to wear blinkers when you look at Sri Lanka? Do you know that Tamil is not treated as a national language in India where Hindi is the official language? India, after all, the original homeland of Tamils. Unlike the Sinhalese who severed its links with India the Tamils are still linked to Tamil Nadu, culturally, linguistically, politically and even religiously. In Sri Lanka Tamil language has a place higher than in India. So where is the discrimination?

Error 3: All public servants who did not want to learn and function in either language were given the rights to (1) retire with full pension and (2) free tuition on government time to learn the language. What more justice can there be in relation to the language issue confined only to the public servants?. My Tamil wife was a public servant and she made full use of the government time and government paid tutors to learn Sinhala and function effectively in the government service. Where is the discrimination? Are you getting the message?

Error 4: Sinhala only was introduced to overthrow English not Tamil. Besides, the Tamil language was also given its due place when Bandaranaike introduced the Special Languages Provision in 1958. So where is the discrimination? The Tamils were prepared to function in English – a language not even known to the majority of the Tamils – but not in Sinhala and Tamil. When the British left in 1948 only 6% of the population knew English. Do you think the 96% should have been treated as second class citizens and ruled in an alien language? Are you getting the message?

Error 5: This is not a question of giving different meanings to identical words, as you claim. This is an instance of you deliberately distorting the known facts and realities to propagate your political myths.

It is up to you to reply and prove your case. Obviously, you will not reply because you do not have the arguments to prove your myths.

Our peoples have suffered enough because so-called intellectuals like you appear in public to promote your image by propagating myths without fronting up for scrutiny. My humble requests to you is to stick to the facts and please don’t bring disrepute to your University which, I am sure, will take a dim view of your fictions.

Take care – particularly of your faculties.

Best

HLDM

US will never support it. if it does, it sets a VERY BAD precedenece against israel as well. china and russia will never support it bcos they want a one undivided UNITARY SL and they too want to do what SL does in their countries.

you buggers thought oba-ma will save you. what has happened now? an "innocent" tamil charity full of die-arse-pora money was confiscated!!

no one can save you from you. no one wants to!!

now no ICRC, no hospitals, no NGOs in LTTE areas. how long will they last???

by the time the UN ceasefire comes (if at all), the PESTICIDE will be complete.
