Civilians come trickling in again

The flow of civilians into Army's hands has again increased thanks to the efforts of the 55 Division. This week alone some 8,000 civilians escaped the LTTE's clutches. 1,400 escaped and handed themselves over to the Army today. Some of these civilians have escaped with gunshot wounds caused by LTTE attack teams along the way.

The IDPs often have blood-chilling experiences to tell. They claimed today that at least 25 bodies of Tamil civilians killed while escaping from forced LTTE detention centers within the last few days by the LTTE were now floating on the Chalai lagoon.

Many Human Rights groups and NGOs have criticized what they are allowed to see, which is the rehabilitation centers operated by the government. They claim the civilians are being held in "Illegal Detention Centers" in Vavuniya. The western experience of Nazi concentration camps does not apply to the centers in Vavuniya as the former is to herd people to slaughter while the latter is to keep them from harms way.

These organizations have little or no firsthand experience on what is actually happening inside LTTE controlled areas. They charge the centers are heavily guarded by the Army and question why civilians are held inside impenetrable camps surrounded by barbed-wire fences.

The reality these organizations do not understand is that the fortifications are for the protection of the civilians themselves, who have turned their backs on the LTTE and made a perilous journey to safety. The LTTE considers them to be traitors and will make every effort to 'punish' them. These civilians have to be protected at all costs since the motivation to escape from the LTTE's clutches was the lack of security in the first place.

A large number of hardcore LTTE cadres hiding among the civilians have been identified by the Army and, due to prevailing political conditions, have been handed over to the Police where they have been produced in court in accordance with the law. From that point onwards the Vavuniya Magistrate would take-over and dispatch these cadres to either rehabilitation camps or to their respective families.

The government, at this point in time, is willing to overlook the possibility of the cadres reorganizing themselves as part of an insurgency/terrorist movement. The Army has to tag this line of the government without questioning. This is despite MI warnings of buries LTTE weapons and explosives dumps and suicide cadres hiding among the civilians.

Thanks DW.

Any idea how many civillians are still trapped?

Rover said...

Thanks DW, for the update. This is complex hostage situation. Perhaps the biggest ever in the world. And of course the LTTE the innovator of so many acts of terror is doing it.

The LTTE is doing pretty much what the Vitchy regime of France did in the WWII.
LTTE is holding civilians responsible for the army operations. Trying to recreate an "83", which was very useful for them. Would the diaspora be so naive as not to identify that the LTTE is responsible for the death of the civilians?

army will keep tabs on these cadres & they may lead them to arms hauls & other moles. or they may cooperate with sla & rat on the others.

also the evidence of civilians can land them in the soup.

army could get them exposed to angry civilians by giving them there whereabouts. they'll be thrashed to death.

last but not the least there are white vans.

so we have lots of choices & hope.
LTTE has neither.

ha ha ha!

Pakka-Lanka said...

Am I naive or what about this “Genocide” claim? Could someone please enlighten me?

1) What is the reason the GOSL or indeed the Sinhalese majority would want to annihilate the Tamil people? Please give a credible answer, not stupid Peelam rubbish & grovel we have heard over and over. Please make reference to thriving Tamil businesses in the South, brilliant Tamil academics produced in the Universities in the South, average Tamil families who have lived in the South and are quite happy to live in the South, Tamil politicians in the democratic mainstream, etc.

2) If the GOSL indeed wants to kill Tamils, why would they follow a military strategy; travel 100s of miles, spend so much money, sacrifice life and limb of security forces to do it? Because more than 60% of the total Tamil population of Sri Lanka living in the South live among other Sri Lankans side-by-side. Can’t they just “genocide” them more cheaply, easily and more effectively right here in the South? Even “Moda Singalayas” can’t be that stupid!

When Hitler wanted to kill the Jews he did not follow a military strategy; it was not necessary. The Jews lived among the non-Jews. Just round them up, take them to gas chambers and…the rest is history. Why doesn’t the GOSL do the same? Surely if genocide is intended Hitler’s method is much more effective.

Could one of those Peelam dreamers (or anyone else) please respond to this in a way it makes sense?

Thank you.

Peter said...

Good work DW,

Can you confirm that the government will continue to block independent media and observers from areas where LTTE atrocities are taking place?

See, so many civilians are getting killed by LTTE, the good government has to ensure that there are no independent witnesses.

Also, the detention centres are heaven for most Tamils. I hear that they love it. Again, the Sinhalese have to continue to block independent media and observers from entering these camps, as they can potentially expose the good work done by SLA.

Tamil civilians despite their oppression by ltte would support ltte. (it is called stockholm syndrome that peter suffers from) It is due to long time brainwashing by tigers. And the "independent media" and "inhuman rights watch" would have a field day making hue and cry over small grivances of the civilians against govt and totally ignoring the death and mayhem caused by ltte.

Madhawa said...

Also the bravery of 58th Div.
They liberated Mannar 'Rice Bowl' and the entire Mannar district with the liberation of Vidathaltivu, Illuppakadvai and Vellankulam. Then Mulangavil & archived major victories in Poonaryn & Paranthan under the greatest Comando brigade comander, a warrior of SLA.
The 58th played the big role of victory in Kilinochchi & Elephant Pass too. Then they marched to Tharmapuram & Visuamadu. Now they are fighting rages around terror final stand off.
So we must say The flow of civilians into Army's hands has again increased thanks to the efforts of the 57,58,59,55,53,56 Divisions and All TF's.

And Peter you mother fucker don't talk about free media. Come back in your next life to feel the freedom. Where's your other jangi brother?

ஆத்மா,

Stockholm syndrome does not affect majority of the tamil civilians who have suffered under the LTTE. If this disease affected the normal tamil civilians our forces wouldn’t have been able to restore normalcy in East in a such short time.

Stockholm syndrome mainly affects the tamils living abroad who have not been oppressed by the LTTE.

Peter said...

ஆத்மா ,

You've understood it well.

--
"independent media" and "inhuman rights watch" would have a field day making hue and cry over small grivances of the civilians against govt and totally ignoring the death and mayhem caused by ltte.
--

So, all these atrocities being committed by the LTTE need to be kept under lock and key.

Every media and human rights group is on LTTE payroll. They will totally ignore all these bad things done by LTTE. We'll just rely on the DefenceLK and ArmyLK to report. They are the only independent websites not on LTTE payroll.

Apart from the clearly visible ignorance on the 58 yet again, there is no weight or "News" on this DW post.

Don't worry Peter puthey... we never fought for any 'Real Estate'... It was only to terrorize Sri Lankan modayas... who usually chose to talk peace with us... when we butcher them!!!

But this Mahinda maama....

Anyway.... you can console yourselves by shouting 'Genocide'... 'State terrorist'... 'Sinhala army'... in front of some foreigners... who will, on one fine, sun-shiny day will bomb the Sri Lankans into pieces and bring out BLOOM the Elaam.

All we gotta do is parroting... "Genocide"... "Sinhala Army'... 'State terror"....

ak47 said...

Surely , the government can atleast let the media see what facilities at IDP camps. The ones in East are not protected. Why cant they use on of the reserve divisions to filter out the LTTE amongst the civilians. They left LTTE areas to be free , this is a chance to tell the world the difference made to their lives.

Panhinda - பன்ஃகின்ட said...

peter,

i suppose you will get an independent report the day you meet your maker. you will then settle outstanding accounts. keep smiling till then.

Peter said...

ak47,
You don't get it: rest of the world is on LTTE payroll.

Are you going to be a terrorist by questioning the credibility of reports on DefenceLK and ArmyLK?

Peter said...

Pankitha,

Maker is probably LTTE payroll as well

:-)

sldf said...

DW thanks for the update. It would be nice to get more updates from DW since next 2-3 weeks is going to be important.
Both 58 and 55 have to guard their rear since the last 700-500 hardcore cadres can launch a final suicide attack on advancing troops at any moment. So fight is not yet over.
Special Forces and commandos are operating in Puthumalan no fire zone boarder? Special Forces and commandos have an important role to play in the coming week. All the best to boys from SF, commando Regiment, 55 & 58.

Panhinda - பன்ஃகின்ட said...

peter,

she is talking about the man you proudly display there.

The brutal and inhuman treatment of civilians by the LTTE is utterly reprehensible and should be examined to see if it constitutes war crimes.

- UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay

Peter said...

Pankitha,

Thanks. When did Navi Pillay see this? Anyway, she is a terrorist on LTTE payroll. Why are you quoting her?

Peter said...

Again, she has asked to be allowed to examine LTTE atrocities.

The ball, I suppose, is in your court; would you allow UN monitors?

Panhinda - பன்ஃகின்ட said...

tick.. tock .. tick .. tock..

hell awaits you.

ஆத்மா said...

Peter,

As much sad it sounds, that is the reality. It is brought on by ltte. It tried to provoke the army and sinhalese into attacking the tamil people in its entire history. Even the suicide attack thru the idp people is designed to do that.

In this circumstances, what to do? I would even support the camps be operating for more than 1 year under surveilance to minimise the casualities later.

Bangladesh, pakistan, and many such countries split on ethnic basis. And the day to day life for a common man is no better. In this day and age, people like France and Germany, poland are getting together into one nation. Whereas the third world countries are provoked to split on ethnic basis by the westerners.

Tamils and sinhalese should find common ground to better life and should be a moderating influence on others.

The problem GOSL has is that they dont have good communicators who can deliver these facts that DW has presented when they get a chance in international media..Except for few instances the SL representative haven't been able pass on the real facts to the news media..Late FM Mr. Lakshman Kadirgamer was the best asset that we had in this area and we surely miss him more than ever.

Peter said...

ஆத்மா,

You are correct. The Swiss terrorists who won't join the EU need to be detained in camps until they change their mind.

Auschwitz sounds good enough?

ஆத்மா said...

நான் தான் சொன்னேனே செவிடன் காதில் ஊதும் சங்கு என்று.

எப்போது ஸ்விஸ் மக்கள் மற்றவர்கள் வீடுகளில் தெருவில் பள்ளிக்கூடங்களில் மசூதிகளில் குண்டு வைத்தார்கள் அப்பாவிகளை கொன்றார்கள்?

அப்படி செய்திருந்தார்கள் என்றால் பிடித்து உள்ளேபோடத்தானே வேண்டும்?

When did Swiss bomb the mosques, killed innocents, and attacked world leaders?

If they did that, then they should be lockedup as well.

Intellectual discussion with Peter the castle clown is rather impossible. He tries to be smart at times, but that runs out in one or two posts.

Peter is providing a great entertainment here. I think he should be left for that purpose and should not be taken any serious. The moment you do that he comes back with an utter nonsense for which you regret the earlier effort for conversation.

Right now it looks to me that you are frustrated as nobody associates with you. That is because you're a blog parasite who land on someone and keep on debating nonsense. That is the usual life cycle of a blog parasite.

Now do not waste your half a dozen identities to prove that you have a support base. I think your term is over here. Log out and log in with a new name. That assures you free parasiting for a day or two until someone recognizes.

He further added that he has personally visited the Kadiragamapuram welfare camp and has witnessed for himself the manner in which, the Government is taking care of the displaced persons.

I hope that you have the total list of LTTE crimes against Sri Lanka. May I suggest you another approach? Keep the total list elsewhere in the web (I know that it is far longer than my list of scum) and list the crimes by the day or week with a link to the full list. A description of each gruesome act like "how LTTE killed 20 children by beading" in addition to what you have already posted is essential. Keep up good work.

[Navy to shoot ship carrying food for Tigers
The Navy said yesterday that it had been alerted about a ship carrying the International Red Cross emblem about to sail to Sri Lanka from Britain carrying 2,000 tons of food for the beleagured LTTE in the guise of food aid to the people trapped in the Mullaitivu district.

Sources said this was a Tiger ruse to rouse international opinion against the Sri Lanka government.

Naval sources said that the Sri Lanka Navy would open fire on the vessel named ‘Vananga Man’ if she enters Lankan territorial waters. She is scheduled to leave Britain on March 26.

...... An organization named British Tamil Forum had said the ship would enter Sri Lankan waters despite the Navy’s protest.

Miss Information said...

The GoSL has very legitimate security concerns regarding some of the IDP's but it has made a mistake by trying to hide them and their plight from the rest of the world.

Someone is always going to say something to a reporter that will upset the Government but if a vast majority of IDP's are seen to be well cared for and in the process of preparing for their personal freedom than surely a just Government can handle some criticism.

Somehow that won't happen as the GoSL are proving to be a near equal of the LTTE in terms of suppressing dissent, freedom of association and freedom of the press.


Both parties in this conflict are making mistakes are measured in the lives and well being of the very people they swear they are protecting.


It is also about time the Diaspora accept that VP has made a series of blunders and must be replaced with someone who has the potential to negotiate with the GoSL... preferably someone who is not a notorious and ruthless dictator... there is only room for one of those in Sri Lanka!

I wish the GOSL will put an end to this war by finishing it off asap.
ie kill/capture VP (if he is still in SL) and the last few cadres.
So that the people in the North can get on with their lives and start re-building a future for their kith and kin. Naturally, a political solution as opposed to an open prison/concentration camp etc (call it what you will)

Why do i get the feeling the GOSL dont want to go that extra mile to finish it off?
Similiar to the suspicion that the US know exactly where Bin Laden is but have no wish to capture/kill him.
In the meantime innocent people are treated like footballs.

'Charge or release' Sinhala Tigers


Court ordered the AG to charge or release the suspects within a month
The Supreme Court in Sri Lanka has ordered authorities to file charges against the 14 suspects known as 'Sinhala Tigers' within a month or release them.
A three member panel chaired by the Chief Justice Sarath N Silva ordered the Attorney General (AG) to take action after considering petitions filed by the suspects.

The counsels appearing for the suspects pointed out that the AG pledged to charge the suspects within a month, more than a month ago, but has failed to implement it.

Links with LTTE

25 Sinhala nationals; journalists, trade union activists and railway workers were arrested by the police in 2007.

They were arrested on suspicion of conspiring with the LTTE to overthrow the democratically elected government.

The Supreme Court earlier this year released 11 of them without charge.

The suspects were accused of forming an organisation called Revolutionary Liberation Army and having close links with the LTTE.

The suspects were never charged in a court of law.

'Confessions'

In a statement issued in February 2007, the Free Media Movement (FMM) said it has received complaints that the publisher of the newspaper Akuna, M.A Sisira Priyankara(38), layout designer M.L.Senaviratna(35) and another activist Nihal Serasinghe(40) were abducted from suburbs of Colombo.

They were later found in the custody of Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) of Sri Lanka police.

The then military spokesman Brigadier Prasad Samarasinghe said the three have confessed to planning and carrying out attacks on behalf of Tamil Tigers.

At a press conference held in Colombo in February 2007, journalists were shown footages of suspects 'confessing' to have worked with the Tamil Tigers to stage attacks in the south of the country.

"Do you honestly think i believe in pro GOSL or pro LTTE videos?"

Believing is a relative term. A brain can do many things before taking that step (such as reasoning).
Do you believe the following BBC comment (nor gov or LTTE).

"Pulmudai local authorities say many civilians brough in from Puthumatalan haven't had a meal for weeks or months"

Can somebody survive without a meal for weeks and months? The people shown in the photo or the civilians escaping LTTE do not look like the ones who are starving.
the BBC article.

My point: No source is 100% reliable. Similarly no source is 100% unreliable. I rely on each and every source to get a clear picture of the situation. It requires some analytical thinking.

French Resistance
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The Croix de Lorraine, chosen by General Charles de Gaulle as the symbol of the resistance.[1]

The French Resistance is the collective name used for the French resistance movements which fought against the Nazi German occupation of France and the collaborationist Vichy Regime during World War II. Resistance groups comprised small groups of armed men and women (referred to as the maquis when based in rural areas),[2][3] publishers of underground newspapers, and escape networks that helped Allied soldiers. The Resistance came from all layers and groups of French society, from conservative Roman Catholics (including priests), Jews, to liberals, anarchists and communists.

In reprisal for resistance activity, the authorities established harsh methods of collective punishment. The increased militancy of communist resistance in August 1941 led to thousands of hostages being taken from among the general population,[26] of whom "at each further incident a number reflecting the seriousness of the crime shall be shot."[27] Over the course of the occupation, 30,000 French civilians were shot as hostages for acts of resistance.[28] Occasionally, German troops would engage in massacres, such as the destruction of Oradour-sur-Glane, where an entire village was razed and the population killed for resistance activities in the vicinity.[29][30]

In early 1943, the Vichy authorities established a paramilitary group, the Milice, to combat the resistance alongside the German forces that were stationed in all of France by the end of 1942.[31] The group collaborated closely with the Nazis and was the Vichy equivalent to the Gestapo security forces in Germany.[32] Their actions were often very brutal and included the torture and executions of suspected resistance members. After the liberation of France, many of the estimated 25,000 to 35,000 miliciens[31] were themselves executed for collaboration. Many of those who escaped arrest fled into Germany, where they were incorporated into the Charlemagne Division of the Waffen SS.[33]

"Vichy's racial policies and collaboration
French Police checking new inmates in the camp Pithiviers
Further information: Révolution nationale

As soon as it had been established, Pétain's government took measures against the so-called "undesirables": Jews, métèques (immigrants), Freemasons, Communists — inspired by Charles Maurras' conception of the "Anti-France", or "internal foreigners", which Maurras defined as the "four confederate states of Protestants, Jews, Freemasons and foreigners" — but also Gypsies, homosexuals, and, in a general way, any left-wing activist. Vichy imitated the racial policies of the Third Reich and also engaged in natalist policies aimed at reviving the "French race", although these policies never went as far as the eugenics program implemented by the Nazis.

As soon as July 1940, Vichy set up a special Commission charged of reviewing the naturalizations granted since the 1927 reform of the nationality law. Between June 1940 and August 1944, 15,000 persons, mostly Jews, were denaturalized [7]. This bureaucratic decision was instrumental in their subsequent internment.

The internment camps already opened by the Third Republic were immediately put to a new use, before ultimately inserting themselves as necessary transit camps for the implementation of the Holocaust and the extermination of all "undesirables", including the Roma people who refer to the extermination of Gypsies as Porrajmos. An October 1940 decree authorized internments of Jews on the sole basis of a prefectoral order, and the first raids took place in May 1941.[8]

The Third Republic had opened various concentration camps, first used during World War I to intern enemy aliens. Camp Gurs, for example, had been set up in the south-western part of France after the fall of Catalonia, in the first months of 1939, during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), to receive the Republican refugees, including Brigadists from all nations, fleeing the Francists. But as soon as Edouard Daladier's government (April 1938-March 1940) took the decision to outlaw the French Communist Party (PCF) following the German-Soviet non-aggression pact (aka Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact) signed in August 1939, these camps were also used to intern French communists. Drancy internment camp was founded in 1939 for this use. It later became the central transit camp through which all deportees passed before heading to the concentration and extermination camps in the Third Reich and in Eastern Europe. Furthermore, when the Phoney War started with France's declaration of war against Germany on September 3, 1939 these camps were used to intern enemy aliens. These included German Jews and anti-fascists, but any German citizen (or Italian, Austrian, Polish, etc.) would also be interned in Camp Gurs and others. Common-law prisoners were also evacuated from the prisons in the north of France, before the advance of the Wehrmacht, and interned in these camps. Camp Gurs then received its first contingent of political prisoners in June 1940, which included left-wing activists (communists, anarchists, trade-unionists, anti-militarists, etc.), pacifists, but also French fascists who supported the victory of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Finally, after Pétain's proclamation of the "French state" and the beginning of the implementation of the "Révolution nationale" ("National Revolution"), the French administration opened up many concentration camps, to the point that historian Maurice Rajsfus wrote: "The quick opening of new camps created employment, and the Gendarmerie never ceased to hire during this period."[9]

Besides the Spaniards and political prisoners already detained there, Camp Gurs was then used to intern foreign Jews, stateless persons, Gypsies, homosexuals, people involved in prostitution, indigents... Vichy opened its first internment camp in the northern zone on October 5, 1940, in Aincours, in the Seine-et-Oise department, which it quickly filled with PCF members.[10] The Royal Saltworks at Arc-et-Senans, in the Doubs, was used to intern Gypsies.[11] The Camp des Milles, near Aix-en-Provence, was the largest internment camp in the Southeast of France. 2,500 Jews were deported from there following the August 1942 raids[12] Spaniards were then deported, and 5,000 of them died in Mauthausen concentration camp.[8] On the other hand, the French colonial soldiers were interned by the Germans on French territory, instead of being deported.[8]

Besides the concentration camps opened by Vichy, the Germans also opened on French territory some Ilags (Internierungslager) to detain enemy aliens, and in Alsace, which had been annexed by the Reich, they opened the camp of Natzweiler, which is the only concentration camp created by Nazis on French territory (annexed by the Third Reich). Natzweiler included a gas chamber which was used to exterminate at least 86 detainees (mostly Jewish) with the aim obtaining a collection of undamaged skeletons (as this mode of execution did no damage to the skeletons themselves) for the use of Nazi professor August Hirt.

Furthermore Vichy enacted a number of racist laws. In August 1940 laws against antisemitism in the media (the Marchandeau Act) were repealed, while the decree n°1775 of September 5, 1943 denaturalized a number of French citizens, in particular Jews from Eastern Europe.[8] Foreigners were rounded-up in "Foreign Workers Groups" (groupements de travailleurs étrangers) and, as the colonial troops, were used by the Germans as manpower.[8] The Statute on Jews then forced Jews to wear a yellow badge and excluded them from the civil administration.

With regard to economic contribution to the German economy it is estimated that France provided 42% of the total foreign aid.[13]

The GoSL aren't fooling anyone with their Karuna gambit... in fact it shows that they are comfortable with war criminals who forcibly conscript children as it suits them and who continue to maintain an armed presence which is against the law of the land.

The Sri Lankan Tamils are stuck between choosing either a full-fledged criminal dictatorship or one in the making.


At least there is a chance, however small, that the GoSL can provide a just, equitable and democratic society sometime in their lifetimes.

Patriots,

Many arms and stocks of ammunition have been recently donated by the LTTE to the SLDF.

I have an idea. Retaining only those arms that fit SLDF requirements and arms acceptance standards, we should refurbish and sell the balance of these weapons and equipment to other friendly 3rd world nations with legitimate defence needs.

The proceeds should be used to equip the SLDF with the arms and ammunition we will need in the future.

Better still, these funds should be used to develop facilities to produce stocks of ammunition for our own weapons.

Other good uses of the funds would be to jump start our Military R&D and fund SLDF veterans benefits.

A systematic plan should be implemented without delay, before these arms degrade and become obsolete, and valueless.

Together with Wickramabahu Karunaratne, she engages in a vicious anti Sri Lankan campaign using the very same freedom she enjoys in Sri Lanka. In her recent wanton anti SL speech, she tried to equate our attempts to rescue civilian taken hostage by LTTE to a Nazi effort. She seems to be inverting logic in favor of LTTE Nazis. She needs to be held accountable for her wanton anti SL act without any delay. She most certainly has a place in unmarked graves reserved for faceless traitors.

Assistance for SLDF Veterans & Dependents

HM,

Brother, I saw a post here criticizing you for making periodic appeals at DW for funding sponsorship of veterans children.

One person advocated that you work on getting a better "system that works" in place, before you post appeals.

They, perhaps, don't appreciate the URGENCY of the situation on the ground, with over 30,000 limbless disabled veterans waiting for assistance, and the fatherless children without a bread winner to look after them. The assistance they get is also MINIMAL, the limbs functionally BASIC, the wheelchairs only manual...not motorized, etc etc.

While there is always room to get a better system in place, these veterans and their dependents NEED HELP NOW, and you are in the VANGUARD of that effort.

Please keep posting at DW... AS OFTEN AS YOU SEE FIT..., brother. There are many here who GREATLY APPRECIATE your DEDICATION and FOCUS on this issue, that is ESSENTIAL to maintaining the spirit and enthusiasm among the PATRIOTS who volunteer to FIGHT and DIE for our country.

I asked for feedback from 60 persons who had requested the application form from me.

42 persons gave me feedback.

36 of them had got the details of the children and have already started sponsoring. More than half of the 36 donors are sponsoring more than one child. Sevavanitha had taken 4-6 weeks to provide the information of the children to the donor.

Sorry to have wasted your time. Please use Sithsala to collapse my comments in the future. Thank you.

If everyone thought like you, then NO ONE would have sold Sri Lanka arms to defend itself.

Yes, there are Legitimate 3rd World Governments (NOT terrorist movements like the LTTE) that need weapons to defend themselves, especially when the reaction of many 1st world countries is to demand their disintegration into Somalia-like maelstroms of anarchy. It is interesting to note that, most of these 1st world countries have fought ferocious internal and external wars to maintain their own integrity whenever threatened.

Your view is typical of knee-jerk bleeding-heart dishwater beingoffered to 3rd world countries today, as solutions to real practical issues of maintaining national security, so their people can live their lives in peace.

Mercifully, there are many countries, Sri Lanka included, that reject such sage hypocritical advice.

Sam Perera said...

I just read Rivira Rana Bimen (use IE to read) by Tissa Ravindra. He says that there is a zone in NFZ out of bounds for civilians.

Idea of repeating my request is not to bore the readers who have already seen it, but to provide the details to the few new comers of DW. After each new canvassing post in DW, the stat counter in the www.ranavirufund.org/ranaviruchildren.html page shows about 5-10 downloads of the application form. I believe at least 50% the people who download the form would take the next step of sending the application from and actually start sponsoring a child.

Sri Lanka has no business getting into the arms trade... it is a dealing of devils. I am not suggesting the GoSL is not justified in arming themselves against insurgency as they have a duty and a right to protect their citizens.

That does not justify selling arms to other countries. Tea, rubber, garments... this is what you need to export... not the weapons of war.


Here is another thought for you. The GoSL has no business ever accusing anyone else of hypocrisy. They have systematically abused the constitution, repressed the freedom of information and association and are in bed with that war criminal Karuna.

The whole involvement of the Catholic Church began with the way it aided the developing brat Prabhakaran with his various bank robberies in Jaffna. The church was his keepers of his loot and probably also managed the loot to purchase the initial arms. Did we ever realize at that time that this youngster will become the most monstrous terrorist in the world today and extract a terrible price on the Tamils and cause such devastation on Sri Lanka?

Sri Lanka has no business getting into the arms trade.

And who may I ask, are you to be telling the GOSL what it may, or may not do?

In fact, in the last 30 years, Sri Lanka's armed its defense forces only with the greatest difficulty, because unlike the LTTE, it had to not only to fight the LTTE in the war zones, but also had to protect all of its civilians behind the front lines. Meanwhile, the LTTE more than met its arms needs with assistance from our erstwhile neighbour, and purchases in arms bazzars throughout the world.

No, Sri Lanka will develop an indigenous arms industry to meet its own need for state-of-the-art weaponry in the future, to defeat not only its internal enemies but also its external enemies, big and small.

Like Israel, we will partially pay for those expenses through arms sales to legitimate democratic friendly governments throughout the world. Our survival is at stake, and we will do what other countries do in similar circumstances; we will use whatever brains and assets we have to become as self-sufficient as we can in arms.

Furthermore, Dear Misinformation,

We do not accept the role you have laid out for us: as an exporters of low-value raw materials and labor-intensive products (tea, rubber, garments etc) forever; the hewers-of-wood and drawers-of-water of the old "colonial" world. No, we will transform ourselves, exploiting the skills of our highly educated and literate people, as fast as we can into a 1st world nation, with powerful allies all over the world.

Yeah it is no news to us. We are breaking lot of rules, killing people (Some times lot of innocent people get killed as well). Where ever there are insurgencies, that is what happen.

Chile, argentena, Colombia, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia etc.

"Mr. Prime Minister, please answer this question: your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister.

Who is it?"
Manmohan immediately responds,

"It's me, Sir !"
"Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says Kalam.

He hangs up and says,

"Did you get that, Mr. Rajapakse?"

Mahinda nods:

"Yes Mr. President.

Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!"



Mahinda Rajapakse, upon returning to Colombo , decides he'd better put his brother, Gothabaya to the test.

Mahinda summons him to Temple Trees and says,

" Gotha , I wonder if you can answer a question for me."
"Why, of course, Aiya. What's on your mind?"
Mahinda poses the question:

"Uhh, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister.

Who is it?"
Gothabaya was puzzled and finally asks,

"Can I think about it and get back to you?"

Mahinda agrees, and Gothabaya leaves.



Gothabaya immediately calls a meeting of the senior armed services & ministers of the cabinet, including his other brothers, Chamal & Basil and they puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer.



Finally, in desperation, Gothabaya calls Mangala Samaraweera and explains the problem.
"Mr. Mangala Samaraweera, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Mangala answers immediately,

"It's me, of course."

Much relieved, Gothabaya rushes back to Temple Trees, finds Mahinda Rajapakse, and exclaims,

"I know the answer, Aiya!

I know, who it is!

It's Mangala Samaraweera!"

And Mahinda replies in disgust,

"Wrong, its Manmohan Singh!"

army will keep tabs on these cadres & they may lead them to arms hauls & other moles. or they may cooperate with sla & rat on the others.

also the evidence of civilians can land them in the soup.

army could get them exposed to angry civilians by giving them there whereabouts. they'll be thrashed to death.

last but not the least there are white vans.

so we have lots of choices & hope.
LTTE has neither.

ha ha ha!

Miss Information,

Welcome to DW. Loved your posts on Puligal; although I don't agree with all your views, I am not afraid of them unlike some others here and I appreciate how much you upset Editor Badrinath.

I see here you have encountered the wisdom of Ananda-USA and his vision of Sri Lanka's future defense. He is dreaming of a 500,000-man SLA and 4,000,000 home guards on top of that to defend against the Indian threat. I asked him and his followers how this mighty army will prevent the Indians from flying over Sri Lankan airspace or blockading Colombo port with their navy, but they are oddly silent on that. Maybe they are thinking our boys will fly in the air like Superman and easily crush Indian Air Force with their bare hands. Such is the faith in the potential of our nation.

Now Ananda-USA (proud to be an American) is thinking of boosting our economy by selling excess weapons to other countries. Perhaps he is thinking that the LTTE had a bigger arsenal than the former USSR's Red Army to think that it can pay for all our own defense needs.

"We do not accept the role you have laid out for us: as an exporters of low-value raw materials and labor-intensive products (tea, rubber, garments etc) forever; the hewers-of-wood and drawers-of-water of the old "colonial" world. No, we will transform ourselves, exploiting the skills of our highly educated and literate people, as fast as we can into a 1st world nation, with powerful allies all over the world."

I applaud Ananda-USA for his vision but unfortunately he does not go so far as to plan exactly how we will become a 1st-world nation. He has not answered the specific question that given our education and literacy level, why have we not become a 1st world nation sooner? This is a hard question for a "patriot" to answer and probably unworthy of his attention as it diverts away from "patriotic" statements.

FAKE velluprabhakaran,

The original version of your Man Mohan Singh joke had different actors:

Mahinda Rajapakse => George W. Bush
India => Britain
Sri Lanka => USA
President Kalam => Queen Elizabeth
Man Mohan Singh => Tony Blair
Sen. Jesse Helms, Chairman, Senate Appropriations Committee => Gothabhaya Rajapaksa
Mangala Samaraweera = Colin Powell

I don't think your characters match up correctly in the level of stupidity/smartness of the original joke; with the Queen/Tony/Colin being the smart people, and the others the stupid ones.

Ultimately, the joke was on George W. Bush who is nowhere as smart as Mahinda Rajapakse.

But, that was no mistake, but an intentional mischaracterization by an LTTEer...WE KNOW!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
This warning is to all masquerading LTTE supporters in this forum:

ASAP send a sms or a SOS to rest of your college in the “tactically retreated” “No Fire Zone” that Ghost Rider will be visiting the resettlement camps together with two or more like IPKF, covered with a black silk cloth to identify LTTE hardcore. Once he nod his head on identifying, that guy will have to tell where the rest of the AK47s are kept. So the LTTE hardcore has a choice. Use the cyanide pill now or help SLA to find rest of the arms! You know (and you think that we do not know) that LTTE carder who are inside resettlement camps are waiting to do their 1st job; meet free media and tarnish government image by telling all what you did during this period as of SLA. Bad luck..

500,000 SLA doesn't mean zero SLN and SLAF. We need a strong SLN and SLAF to defend SL from possible external threats. But before that (immediately after the current conventional fighting) SLA has to fight a guerrilla insurgency while guarding the whole island. For that SLA need more troops. Sarath Fonseka needs 300,000 and Ananda-USA needs 500,000. Obviously I will agree with SF.. but we need more troops.

/He has not answered the specific question that given our education and literacy level, why have we not become a 1st world nation sooner?/

Answer depends on how you define 1st world nation. You organize an army, go to another country, kill them all, rob their natural assets, destroy their country, make some of them your slaves, build your economy,.. and say "we are 1st world nation.. you are 3rd world nation..". If this is your definition answer is we have not become 1st world nation becuz we don't do this.

I see a 1st world nation as one parallel to SL (sinhele) in A'pura era in peaceful times, in todays context. In this case we are not 1st world nations mostly due to the education we get. We were trained to follow our masters (westerners). Literacy rate simply means we can read and write. i.e. We are good for clerical work. (British set up our education just to get some clerks to do their clerical work and we still do that.) If we need to be 1st world nation we have to change this education system, mainly the concepts behind it.

Ananda-USA said...

Guys,

Here is the original joke, recast by Fake velluprabhakaran, as well as I can remember it. It is clearly a creation of the Democrats, but well worth recounting here.


While visiting Britain, President George W. Bush is invited to tea with Queen Elizabeth at the Buckingham Palace.

He admiringly asks Queen Elizabeth what her leadership philosophy is.

She replies that she does it by surrounding himself with very smart people. George Bush asks how she knows if they are smart, and she graciously responds "I ask them the right questions; please allow me to demonstrate."

Bush watches as Queen Elizabeth phones British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and says, "Mr. Blair, please answer this question: your mother has a child, and your father has a child, but this child is not your brother nor your sister. Then, who is it?" Tony Blair immediately responds, "It's me, Madam!" "Correct, Mr. Blair. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says the Queen.

She hangs up the phone and says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?" Bush nods and says "Yes Madam, Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that technique when I return home!"

George Bush, upon returning to Washington DC, decides he'd better put his close Republican advisers, to the test. Bush calls up Senator Jesse Helms, the Republican Chairman of the Armed Services Committee and says,
" Yo, Jesse! I wonder if you can answer a simple question for me?" "Why, of course, Mr President, What's on your mind?" says Jesse. Bush poses the question, "Umm, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother nor your sister. Then, Who is this person?"

Old Jesse scratches his head, but is truly puzzled and clueless, and hears an impatient finger tapping at the other end. But, he has been a permanent fixture of the US Senate for decades for nothing; he buys time by saying "Mr. President, I am rather busy right now, but let me think about it and get back to you right away!" Bush agrees, and Jesse convenes an emergency session of the Republican members of the Senate Armed Services Committee and pops them the question. They puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer. Then Jesse gets a bright idea, "I know a very smart fella in our Party who can help us out with this problem" and places a call to fellow Republican, Gen. Colin Powell, Chief of the Armed Forces. "Yo, Colin! See here boy, we have a bit of a problem coming up with an answer for the President, and need your help!" Colin, sounding rather miffed, says "OK, Mr. Helms, what is the question?" Ole Jesse says "Well, if your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister, then who the hell is it?" Colin, now really annoyed, yells "You dumb fcuk! It's me, of course!" and slams the phone down.

Much relieved, Ole Jesse exclaims "I told you this boy will know!" and hurriedly calls Bush exclaiming, "I got it, by George I got it Mr. President, I know the answer! I know, who it is! It's Colin Powell!"

President Bush, disgusted by the ignorance of his top advisor, exclaims "No, you are wrong Mr. Helms, it is Tony Blair, Queen Elizabeth herself told me so!"

Wijayapala,

You did it again, thanks for that marvellous post.

We are fortunate that star and stripe worshipping wanna be SL patriot is not in Sri Lanka and has nothing to do with decision or law making in out mother land.

His arms industry, half million SLA and 4 million National Guard projections are nothing but pure fantasy of a brain dead.

He and his two cent theories and advices are good for some banana republic run by a gook like George Bush the junior.

Present Sri Lankan leaders are doing much more sensible things than what this cuckoo suggests.

When did I say 500,000 man SLA? I have always said a 500,000 man SLDF, including all three SLA, SLN and SLAF services. Sarath Fonseka has indeed said he needs 300,000 man SLA troops; I have heard even larger figures. And yes, I did say a 4,000,000 man National Guard including all adults who can bear arms.

You must be responding Wijeyapala, barking in the wilderness. I refuse to waste time and effort argiung with him, and have Collapsed Comments on him.

He also has asked:
/ Given our education and literacy level, why have we not become a 1st world nation sooner?/

Well, if this war had not intervened we would be well on our way there. Also, the education we have is a very good base to build upon to develop the targeted skills we need. In combination with high technology and service industries to employ people with
good skills, we can get there.

Wijeyapala's questions always remind me of the man who posed the question "If man had been meant to fly, wouldn't he have been born with wings?"

If your heart is not in it, everything is impossible, every thing is beyond reach, just leave it to fate. It is an ingrained attitude. That is why I ignore him. It is an awful waste of time interacting with him; he "knows everything," yet has no solutions to anything!

The military exists to fight an external enemy. The military had to be dragged in purely because of a political, foreign policy and law-and-order failure.

Surely you would want to strengthen these other things first before you consider strengthening the military? Its like treating the symptoms than treating the causes.

karuna says-

The LTTE's former military supremo says one of the reasons why the Sri Lankan army has been so successful is the new commando units that tracked the Tigers' through their phone calls - pinpointing their jungle lairs. "The LTTE can never be built up again. They can't use any communications. They are finished."

You are presenting a Chicken or the Egg came first argument. The separatists felt they could win, with assistance from Tamil Nadu and India, because Sri Lanka was so militarily weak. We had "other priorities" for our funds, fooling ourselves into believing we had no enemies, and lulling ourselves with our compassionate Buddhist values. We had forgotten our nation's history, "essentially" not having fought for our survival since 1815; that role was taken over by the colonial power, the British.

Other countries that have had more recent wars of national survival, think differently. They always look to their defences, providing for guns before butter. Their more recent experiences have taught them that.

Well, now its our turn; we came within a hair breadth of national extinction...listen to Sarath Fonseka speak...he knows how close we came and scars to prove it. After nearly 150 years of colonial domination, We have now had a refresher course in the age old lesson that "IF YOU DESIRE PEACE, PREPARE FOR WAR."

It would be foolish to believe that you can turn on military competence like a switch, just when you need it, after you have met all of your "other priorities." No, you need the weapons, the people skilled in that art of warfare, and a citizenry that understands that to remain free, you have to be prepared to fight for freedom. Not just to fight, but to FIGHT & WIN.

It will be too late to develop the resolve to do the things we need to do once this lesson has faded from the national consciousness, and "politics as normal" has replaced it. It will be too late after we have addressed all of the other priorities to develop an adequate defence only when it becomes an urgent necessity. If we have not learned that now, we never will.

They say, if you FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU, IF YOU FOOL ME TWICE SHAME ON ME!

Foreign countries are banding together, even as we speak, to dictate to Sri Lanka a "Political Solution." That is, in part, predicated on an evaluation of our residual military weakness. They have to be disabused of those ideas, by demonstrating at least now, that Sri Lanka will not tolerate it. Part of the ability to do that, and stand on our own two feet, will come from military strength, and self-sufficiency in arms to support it.

Romeo said...

Panhinda,

The man who thinks he is now larger than his britches never collapse anybody’s comment but pretends he is collapsing selectively whenever he is dumb found.

Don’t worry collapse or not he is only a dumb arse to me, nothing else.

*/

Ananda, my apologies for calling you names.

The separatism did not occur overnight. It started around 1961 after we failed to give language parity to Tamils. It took another 20 years to reach a point of no-return.

We had 20 years to circumvent the problem. It was political incompetence, corruption and bad foreign policy management that failed us.

Have we given a shot at sincerely addressing any of these other shortcomings yet? Why are you so quick to raise 500,000 army if you haven't tried fixing the fundamentals? Apparently it takes around Rs 5 million to train a combat soldier. Imagine if that money was given someone poor to start a business?

I agree with you for a need for a military. However, we haven't given these other things a chance to see if it works first. It not a smart thing to do considering we only have finite resources to put into other more productive use. We should aim to spend upto %4-%5 of the GDP on military and nothing more.
