LTTE's grand finale before 1st May?

We have received reports that indicate Velupillai Prabhakaran, the LTTE supremo is still in Mulaitivu. 4 days ago his son Charles Anthony was spotted by now defected LTTE cadres. If Prabhakaran has the guts to face the Army he will not live to make another Heroes Day Speech.

The Mulaitivu battlefield was fairly calm today. The 55 Division and 58 Division linked up two days ago and have started consolidating the area north of Puthumathalang. The clearing operations were spearheaded by 2 Commando Regiment and the Mechanized Infantry of the 55 Division.

The 3rd phase of the rescue mission could begin within the next 48 hours as the objective is to destroy the LTTE by 1st of May and to secure some 50,000 civilians thought to be still trapped inside LTTE areas south of the A-35 in Vellamullaivaikkal. Fresh SF troops from SF 3 and 4 have been brought to a nearby location in case of need.

DefenceWire would like to take this opportunity to call on all Sri Lankans to organize at the village level, possibly around religious places of worship to collect garments for the rescued civilians. Food and other essentials are being provided by the government but there are still some shortfalls.

An act of kindness by the people in the south can go a long way in terms of repairing ethnic harmony in Sri Lanka. Soon after the Tsunami in the East, ordinary Sinhala villagers voluntarily collected and distributed their belongings to Tamil and Muslim villagers along the coastline. This was the first wave of relief that reached the people in distress.

Thanks DW!
When the people from the south send these material, it should be written in tamil that these have been donated by the people in the south, the sinhalese, tamil, muslims, without any religious and racial discrimination. There will be many people who will try to apply the LTTE agenda and not let the people know these are kind acts of the people from the south!
I am certain there will be big turn out and also certain the foreign media or tamil net will not utter a word!

This is a great opportunity for the people in South to show our love towards our brothers and sisters in the North!!!

Thanks DW

your appeal for supplies to IDP's is timely and very impotant.

The warmth and hospitality of the Sinhala people (not being racist here but terminology is such since it concerns the Tamil and Sinhala people)should be felt by the Tamil citizens of Mother Lanka. This will heal even the most sore wounds and show the proper situation to thos ewho have been brainwashed.

So let's all contribute with conviction, not only the extras but let's sacrifice some of our creature comforts in this hour of need.

Our forces have sacrificed their lives so why not us, let's forego a bottle of beer, a scotch or a dinner out, any extras is all we need to miss for a day to make a difference

Puffy said...

when you say VP is in mullaitivu, you mean in vellamullivaikkal area within the NFZ, right DW?

Don't worry mate, all Sri lankans in the south are already in full gear organising stuff to be donated to the rescued tamil civilians. The whole world will see how we treat them!

I think the GoSL has fought the war alone, monetary wise, for too long and now it's our time to step in.

Like I suggested before, why don't the GoSL create a special fund to collect money to use on the 100,000+ tamil civilians rescued?

When tsunami hit Sri Lanka, all the Sri Lankans showed who they are. Sri Lanka used to be known as 'Dhamma Deepa', and end of this war should be the start of revival of that great past.

I hope all the Sri Lankans will do their best to help our borthers and sisters in the north, who have entrusted their lives to the rest of Sri Lankans when they left ruthless terrorists, LTTE....

Hope there will be an international scale mechanism so that even us can help, the same way we did for Api Wenuwen Api. I am proud to say that in Texas along we Sri Lankans raised over $60,000 (SLR 7.2 million).

Sky said...

Thanks DefenceWire for the daily update..!!

Really appreciate what You & Your Team is carrying out over here..!!

Without your valuable, up-to-date information on the proceedings,
We would have been just a bunch of people who are looking at
daily media published on Net, News and on TV..!!

Thanking You & Your Team Once again..!!

My personal opinion is that you should not fade until
the whole operation is over.

Whole operation by the sense, the 'Humanitarian Operation'.
We need to know what's happening to the areas that we cleared
out from LTTE. What our government is doing on those areas etc etc..!!

Getting back to the current scenario, I think the whole
country is waiting to hear the 'Good News'.

For us, we do not care whether VP is taken ALIVE or NOT [Better NOT].
But he should be taken care..!!
Including the top 05 leaders. Rest of the leaders should be taken alive.
We can use those to search and track the loads of weapons hidden
all over the areas.

Without ARMY finding those hidden weapons [From the smallest bullet to SAM's]
it is too risky to allow the civilians to come back to their native places.

If the weapons go in to wrong hands, we might have a War within the people. [Like those situations in some African countries].

So let us all pray for a better SRI LANKA from this moment onwards.
Our Forces and Officials made us to be PROUD SRI LANKANS..!!

We can walk with our head high with such a pride that we are the
ONLY nation on the whole world who defeated a complete Terrorist Org.

Jaya Wewa..!! Jaya Wewa..!! Jaya Wewa..!! Jaya Wewa..!!

May the Triple Gems Bless Our Mother Lanks..!!

ReallyCold..... said...

Very good call. Direct opportunity to access Tamils without LTTE brainwashing.

Rupavahini, please organize a food and clothing drive. Sri Lankans should develop an NGO like organizatioin within WITHOUT getting any foreign personal in Sri Lanka. I think that is what India did after Tsunami. We should only get help to train our people on how to manage disaster relief.

DW,
wanted to say this before but forgot...

Don't you dare do the vanishing act on us!

When this war is over, we need to read detailed stories of all the countless daring operations carried out by our boyz...
specially by the SPECIAL FORCES!!!

Thanks in advance!

CASC said...

Thanks for the update DW

I hope you will stay around after major operations are concluded.

The only comprehensive archive of operations conducted by the Sri Lanka forces exists in this blog and in DN.

Perhaps down the road, some academics or writers will write a full account of the eelam wars for the sake of posterity.

As Puffy has pointed out, we hope to learn more about our heroic forces even after the grand finale is concluded.

"UN to send team to Sri Lankan `no-fire zone`"

This will complicate things if allowed to happen.

ServeSL said...

Thanks DW.
It is great of you to call upon all Sri Lankan citizens for a humanitarian response of magnitude equal to that of the aftermath of the Tsunami. It has great impact when it comes especially from you. I believe that you have a very wide reader base, particularly among those who want to see things as balanced as possible. We believe that it is very important to allay any prejudice, fear, and doubts in the minds of these battered civilians. We must give them hope and confidence. It is in fact crucial for lasting peace. We must do it now. Let us come out in force, like during the Tsunami, and show that the Sri Lankans in the South care deeply for them. We thank you and salute you for making this urgent call. We feel that if you could post these sentiments under a separate heading it would have a greater impact. Thanks again.

DW,...I second puffy's comment!!!!!

Sam Perera said...

Good call DefenceWire. It breaks my heart when I see the escaped hostages and the ordeal they went through. The best we can do is to settle them in their original homes as soon as possible after taking care of their absolute minimum needs of food, cloths, and health. This is a moment of truth for Sri Lankan patriots.

{he court in Paris imposed imprisonments of seven months each to 70 Tamil agitators that were arrested while behaving mischief. These 70 persons had no valid document pertaining to their stay in Paris. The authorities in France have decided to discuss with the government of Sri Lanka about the next step to be taken following the seven month punishment. ]]

This particular news item gives me more pleassure than capturing VP. Back to Colombo, back to reality for these mother fuckers.

Welldone France.

France, US and UK are trying something. I think it is time to wrap this up. Soon they will start threatening the SL government if not already. (I hope I am wrong in this regard)
India would have been a strength for us if there were no elections there.

chamal said...

I don't see how any foreign government or organization can stop this operation now, until some kind of miracle happens that will put the army in a major drawback. Reports say that our SF and Commandos are inside the NFZ, and there's no way we are going to stop the operation without getting them out of there. That means we have to finish up the rest of the LTTE or attack again and get the remaining civilians out as well (not that the two things are unrelated). I'm sure Russia and China will be on our side if the Europeans and US start trying to be the 'big brother'. They are our real friends, not India. Anyway, we have proved now that the LTTE is keeping civilians by force. If anybody wants us to stop the operation, then they must also find a way to free the civilians. With the UN also having ordered the LTTE to release the civilians, I don't think any country, however powerful, has any choice but to let us continue or finish the job themselves.

Really Cold:-

"We should only get help to train our people on how to manage disaster relief."
*****************************************************
Totally agree with Really Cold. We need to step up helping the government to provide for the displaced innocent tamil people. Now is the time for the Sri Lankan expatriate communities to show the generosity, again, just like after the Tsunami.

Just like Really cold says - we need outside support to train on disaster management. We really do need that. Everything else, we should be able to take care of.

DW - Thanks for bringing this up and posting the idea for the public.

sldf said...

Defencewire,

Thanks for the update. I think LTTE has good 500-600 hardcore cadres including the fame black tigers alone with their leader. And another 1000 inexperience conscripted cadres. The Army commander said today that Army knows where Praba is hiding. Which is contrary to my earlier belief that that the leader has left the Island. Let's hope he commit suicide or get killed by the army soon. Capturing him alive would complicate the situation. Soon this ends better. We can save the lives of our soldiers and civilians.

sldf said...

Guys,

Our brave soldiers have paid the supreme sacrifice and done their part. Now it’s our time do ours. Please do whatever you can in your respective countries to help our poor Tamil civilians:

Items needed:
1. Clothes (Kids clothes, Housecoats/Sarongs), towels, Blankets and tents for shelter
2. Soap and toothpaste
3. Anti-biotics, Medicine, Vitamins
4. Milk powder (Lakspray, Anchor etc)
5. Water purifiers

And those youth from Welioya who organized this donations later (in CFA period) were killed by he sole reps of tamils, together with few other farmers.

France, UK and US.. Canada, Auz,.. all was threatening us for quite a time.. They threaten.. MR shows the middle finger, Rathnasiri lift the sarong and shows ****,.. diasspora jump up and down, peelaam is coming to its end.

mottapala said...

If all these western governments are really concerned about civillians what they should do is to help us looking after the 150,000 odd refugees already with us. It is ridiculous to ask for a ceasefire now.

I think they are just making noises for the sake of it, knowing very well that we are not listening. Probaly to appease to the diaspora.
At the moment these countries are in debted to the tune of trillions and econmies has still not hit the rock bottom. You switch on the TV all you see is doom and gloom with thousands of jobs been lost everyday.
As far as the general public is concerned they dont give a monkies arse to what happens in SL, India or Zimbabwe.
Nobody gives a fuck about Milliband or Brown even in their own country. People are fed up of these idiots meddling with the rest of the world.

3Sinhala Web Portal said...

You guys are right. This has been reported in an Austrialian news magazine:

UK and France plan sea rescue mission for Tamils
(The Australian)

BRITAIN and France were last night considering a dramatic ocean rescue of thousands of civilians caught in northern Sri Lanka's bloody war zone as the UN Security Council joined the growing numbers calling for the Tamil Tiger rebels to surrender.

Both countries said yesterday that they were pressing for more international help for trapped Tamil civilians, including the possibility of sending boats for an evacuation mission.

[Opposition Leader Ranil Wickramasinghe questioned in a rally held in Gampaha if the 24-hour grace period to surrender was given to Prabhakaran to let him to escape within that time period. He further asked the governemnt to show cause for declaring such a grace period. The Opposition Leader further said that defense spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella must resign from the post if he has taken this action without the government approval]

hemantha said...

Ninja,
It may be not as simple as that (again I hope I am wrong). China and Russia can block any UN resolution. That's all. I think these countries (Uk, France,...) are seem trying to go around the security council. Due to the situation in Tamilnadu India might end up on their side too. There is a small possibility that they might try to enter the no fire without our permission.

Ban Ki-Moon said today:
"I intend to immediately dispatch a U.N. humanitarian team to the no-fire zone. The purpose of this humanitarian team would be to first of all monitor the situation and support humanitarian assistance and try to do whatever we can to protect the civilian population who are caught in the fire zone."

PTI reports:
"Unhappy over continued killings of Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka and worried about its fallout in Tamil Nadu, Union Government on Thursday decided to rush National Security Adviser M K Narayanan and Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon to Colombo on Friday to press for immediate end to "all hostilities.

French foreign minister:
""We will try to launch an operation," Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner told a radio interview, adding he would discuss the plan with his U.K. counterpart David Miliband.Kouchner said French and U.K. boats could be dispatched to help the tens of thousands of civilians who have fled the conflict zone "because these people are on the beaches and some are drowning at sea."

""You know there have been a lot of relief operations and unfortunately, people are a bit tired of all that, as are governments," he told France Culture radio.

He also said there were no plans for a military intervention.

"We have certainly not reached that point," he said."

Gringo said...

[BAGHDAD – A previously undisclosed Iraqi government tally obtained by The Associated Press shows that at least 87,215 Iraqis have been killed in violence since 2005.

An in-depth AP review shows the total for the entire war exceeds 110,000 Iraqis. That figure is based on the government tally and counts of casualties from earlier years from hospital sources and media reports.

Who is responsible for this?
Why is HRW is silent on this?
Where is UN?
Who created this situation?
Where should affected loved address their grievances and ask for compensation?

Or are we talking about peanuts, pecans or walnuts here?

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Fully agree with ReallyCold. I wanna donate the stuff that I can find, but how? I mean, I have a list of phone numbers of NGOs delivered via mail. But when I give my used cloths, will they deliver them with a Bible? Or deliver them in return for a dissenting comment forced from a refugee? Or will they deliver gelignite and batteries wrapped by my cloths?

I'm not joking, am I?

Bottomline is we need a trustable movement. I am hoping that Rupavahini or PNM will start a genuine humanitarian move.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Mottapala;

I seriously support hon RW. He is one of the most significant elements of this war. His contribution, mostly unintentional, may perhaps be the actual turning point of victory.

What has he done?

By stating absolutely lunatic statements together with his negotiation motives. End result is a total repulse of public from him, and hence the negotiation camp. Everybody rallied for war and RW is the main reason for that.

Earlier the previous negotiation champion of CBK could rally some ppl to accept negotiations as a means using her popularity. Popularity is all what RW has not got. So he has repulsed them also into war for peace movement.

Otherwise how did SF recruit four times more than then existing army? CBK challenged Elle Gunawansa thero to find 1000 ppl to enlist in army if possible. Why? As CBK killed the motive and fooled the nation in a socialist's type negotiation mood. But now these guys found ~200,000 unprecedented recruitment, despite being in the height of war. Thanks to RW, I believe.

Why do we have ALL the sensible politicians joined into govt. This is why MR is running a better house there. A balanced one. Not biased to cronic ideologies of SLFP. RW chased all the good men and chased them to govt, and Wimal Weerawansa stated that it was RW who broke JVP too. All the better.

So RW as opposition leader is the best thing for our nation. That comes with the assurance that he will never be anything else. MR is having a free ride in politics.

So you can sodomize RW, and he will never say no to you. But for heaven's sake do not kill him or work on sacking him. We want him for another decade at minimum as our long living opposition leader. May he survive.

Cheers for our opposition leader.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

Let us evaluate the possible fate of Fatpig. Going with what I think as best to worst.

- Pork BBQ. Of course do not even leave a bone. We don't wanna know where it happened or who actually did it. Also we don't even wanna know that it did happen as long as it happens.

- Killed by his ppl. Fine as long as it happens. But how can SLDF verify?

- Escape by his own. And live in exile. SL/India constantly demanding for his arrest and hence he cannot appear in public. But he tries to control diaspora and whatever remains of pussycats, hence avoiding another leader shaping among them.

- Escape in the hands of powerful nations - a rescue in other words. SL can sore its diplomatic relations with that nation and force for his hand over for eternity. And that naturally avoids his chances within SL. He will have to live out of SL and die as a symbolic leader.

- Capture by SLDF, publicly, hence punished and imprisoned in SL. A captured Fatpig will make the day of all HR and NGO vultures. How good he's fed, what facilities he has and how many chinese goddesses he gets per month. All that on our tax payer's cost. Many doing kidnappings to get him out of jail. A Mendela of Fatpig.

- Capture and handed over to India. Super prison facilities, for few years, and pardon.

- Lay down arms and surrender to SLDF, publicly. SLDF can spell out its conditions, but still the Fatpig will have his chances in politics after the surrender.

- Lay down arms and surrender via UN or ICRC. This is a winning point to him. We will have to accept him in politics.


As you see I never mentioned Cyanide, did I?

ConspiracyTheory said...

There is a long term risk these Western countries and India forcing us against
military victory at this crucial hr. Since China and Russua are only powerful countries openly supporting us in this war it may end up SL with more and more Chinese influence. I dont mind Chinese influence in my country to
balance Western and Indian interference but I dont want to see SL come to same level as
Myanmar, Zimbabwe, or Nepal. China has virtually surounded India with Pakistan, Nepal and Burma from West North and East.
China may really need SL to encircle India from South. With SL strategic location for China
SL may be more important than others. I don't know whether Western world and India has understand this ground realities before
forcing SL government against military victory now.

Prayers are answered...

National programme for assisting rescued civilians
Government and Private media institutions were informed and instructed

The national programme to be launched island wide to facilitate fleeing civilians from the terror-grips with the essential items and Government and Private media institutions were informed and instructed to corporate with this effort with immediate effect by the Minister of Mass Media and Information Anura Priyadarshana Yapa at the special Conference held with the Government and Private media heads at the Ministry of Media today (23).

Each and every Sri Lankan, well-known for their hospitality, has been moved by the plight of their own country men fleeing from the terror-grips and wishes to join ranks with the Government and armed forces in extending a hand towards them. It's high-time for the people to join hands with the President's efforts in sharing, caring, and resettling these civilians totally misguided and disoriented by a terror regime for the past 3 decades, and such efforts will not only improve the quality of life in the North all parts of the island making it peaceful

Media organizations can inform their arrangements though they channels well before the collection procedure. Business community and the general public are encouraged to contribute with items in use.
Items to be collected:

Fresh milk

Bottled water

Dry rations

Food items (biscuits)

New clothes

Other sanitary items........ ect
Kindly requested to handover your items at following locations Colombo and suburbs -

BMICH Colombo and all the Divisional Secretariat offices in the country and to relevant media institution with there identify location.

nuclear said...

DW,
I smell a strange writing in your post. Understand your plight. Are you not allowed to let us know the real truth! So sure do not go out of your way to tell things that should not be told to public.

But let me guess what will be the end result of this situation.

What ever said and done, if VP is not going to be KIA, RW is going to form the next Government sooner than later. He will bring VP to Parliament like Karuna. And we all know what will be the next.

RW and group will find 1001 excuses to put the blame on MR. RW have already started to accuse MR for truce period. He will get VP or a spoke person to say that RM allowed him to flee.
Our SL people are so tangible and so easy to convince this fact.
You got to worn authorities on this danger please.

But I wish I am wrong.

Single said...

There is a strong possibility that India/UK/France may do some last minute stunt under the cover of UN.
Possibilities:
- A mid night UK/French ship evacuating Civilians along with VP
- VP and team surrendered to UN who come by ships

In any case, there may be severe suicide attacks on us. Hope and wish we have counter plans to them.

Majority of this left people or Mahaveer families. So not trust any of them.

nijp said...

Hi

First time user

I like what I see from Sri Lankans on this blog.

Hope this war is gona finish soon. Can not bare to hear that Indian and other EU countries trying to stop the war.

We must end this asap hopefully tomorrow.

Please do not forget VP balla is hiding behind Mahaveera familes. I might be in trouble for saying this but Whether you like it or not they were proud of their sons and daughther for killing Sinhala, Tamil and other kind of people. And we need to worry about them by supplying food and cloths????

Tell you what I would rather send (Money, cloths, food whatever) that to a Ranaviru family!!!!!. I know we need to show Tamil people that we care. I think we have done enough by getting them out of the LTTE camps etc... But we need to look after number one..... SAVIOURS OF OUR MOTHERLAND.

I am sure the only plan for VP is thru foreignn intervention and as we can see from the intl pressure showing at this moment clearly shows that VP is in NFZ.
I hope Navy is geared for any submarrine detection...from under sea ..and we need to think all the posibilities
* foreign helicopter can land.
* ICRC and etc ships can come to NFZ
* underwater submarrine..

please guys we should this finish and need to help everyone

agree- we need to say - and need to change our attitude to Sri Lankans rather than Sinhala, Tamil, etc

Sam Perera said...

nuclear,

It is very unlikely that UK/France would embark on such an act because;

(1) The presence of a extremely powerful navy of a friend of Sri Lanka.

(2) Potential military losses to these countries and black mark they would get forever trying to save the worst terrorist of modern time.

(3) Gross violation of sovereignty of Sri Lanka.

Migara said...

This is a good opportunity for those who crying for civilians all over the world.

They can show whether they care about the poor Tamil civilians or the WILD TIGERS who kill innocent people.

I’m pretty much sure that the people who protests all over the world for WILD TIGERS won’t give a penny or a cent to establish the lives of these poor people.

So friends shall we get together and help our relatives, who escaped from the VAMPIRE PRABHAKARAN.

US, UK, EU all think they are the leaders, rulers, controllers, cops, judges and policy makers for the whole world. War is closing to the end. After it ends these western powers will be out of one opportunity to show the world that they are the world leaders. I think that's why their hurry in issuing statements.

If I am wrong they are definitely planning to rescue VP and other LTTE leaders. And further they want to protect any evidence left with VP regarding their assistance to LTTE via INGOs. And it will be fun for them let tamils demanding peelaam and them demanding federal while VP etc living abroad similar to Dalai Lama scenario.

Correct Ninja
This LTTE issue was capitalize by int'l community and India

This is what is happening almost all the countries of like us, where these US & EU countries are trying to show they are Big guns..

see US simply shows a failure that we(small country) with courages army won the war against the most babaric terrorist orgnisation in the world.. so ... they US is simply lost and EU the same.

we sri lankans has to understand that there is a whole world is funding this LTTE to continue for them...

Am i right in understanding that this is going to happen regardless of what GOSL says?

Is this a show of force?
Is the SL Navy/forces just gonna let them come? (I guess they will have to?)
Will there be ships only or also planes?

Can GOSL monitor what comes/leaves NFZ?
if yes, how?

I think the best thing now is to accelerate the operation and finish it off BEFORE those clowns get to SL.

This doesn't smell good, guys. Looks like they totally disregard GR's rejection earlier today.

will they REALLY try to help/save fatpig? would they risk something like that?

Lionheart said...

Guys,

I think SLDF have to go ahead with the last phase of the rescue mission immediately. India, USA, UK and France are at least a week away from a position of being able to physically threaten Sri Lankan NFZ. They can not use their Air Weapons against SLDF as there is no cause for them to use it. Their objective is to save the civilians. I doubt whether these countries will go even that far of any physical interventions.

So, I think SLG has a window of one week or more.

Go for it SLG, SLDF…….

Ofcourse there should be no hesitant in treating the IDPs with passion and humanity, after all they are Sri Lankans too. It is the time to break the barriers, both mental and physical and thinks as one nation. Then the world will come around.

Lionheart said...

Further, Why can't all these countries and UN airlift supplies that so much needed for the rescued civillians under gOSL care, instead of 25% left inside NFZ?

What logic is the UN having in helping 25% over the 75% civillians that are rescued?

All what they should do is to ensure that who ever that are saved, 'are saved'.

Anyone has a link to the SAT pictures taken by US during the rescue operation which prompted this change of heart?

New Zealand's Sri Lankans (of all races and creeds ihncluding sudhas)have already sent two container loads of goods tobe dispersed, and will ensure many more are sent. Now is the time to cease using old labels, like Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim, etc., and start thinking and talking of ourselves as Sri Lankans. Then we can go on to see our country/homeland become the true heart of Asia.

What I can not understand is what is making them so nervous in these pictures. This had been the situation for the last 6 weeks. Now GOSL has taken 60% of the civillians away. Suddenly that has made all these countries chilled? Is India trying a proxy here to save it's creation (VP & LTTE) Are the western countries becoming pawns and blind to the truth? Or am I missing something here?

Washburn69 said...

LIONHEART quote:
"Is India trying a proxy here to save it's creation (VP & LTTE) Are the western countries becoming pawns and blind to the truth?..."

I have a feeling it's "Yes" to both ...
Can we monitor what comes in and what goes out? can ANYONE from GOSL be there with the UN team to see that nothing "fishy" happens?

..and why haven't the GOSL made any statements about this? wonder what would happen if we said something like "..anyone who threatens to enter our borders in a threatening manner without authorization and proper inspection will be dealt with according to SLDF protocol" or some wordy thing...

or is that overkill?
I mean there's no MILITARY presence in these "teams" right?

UN will not have any military personnel for sure. To get military in to it UN will have to have Security Council approve it, but China and Russia will veto it, so not much of a chance. Even if they approve it individual countries need to approve the troop deployment.

On the other hand any contry can send troops to a another country for wharever reasons, then it will be an act of war.

We are monitoring all the things thatgoes in and out of NFZ. Even if the UN comes in all that they could do is to remove the civillians out NFZ. (This is what GOSL wants too)

But whole situation will get dragged for months and years as every one will be fingering us, while LTTE will be looking for ways to create counter attack, killing of UN personnel and blaming on GOSL and carrying out other terror attacks.

We also should worry about the outcome of the Indian elections

Washburn69 said...

Lionheart:

Thanks for easing my mind a bit...

I wonder why tamilnet is not jumping for joy at this news of UN coming to SL NFZ ...I guess because they don't think it really helps LTTE, if all UN does is remove civilians, which actually EXPOSES fatpig, et al, right?

instead, they now have this ridiculous report on front page:

The EU will not extradite fugitives to countries where they may face the death penalty.

If VP manages to escape, his best destination will be Norway or UK. The court proceedings and everlasting appeals in the UK in particular, will make it almost impossible to get VP to SL or India.

None of these legal safeguards apply if the fugitive is wanted by the USA or France. They don't give a damn about local and International law and kidnap at will. But then, its different for superpowers.

If VP is captured alive, I'm sure that MI would love to have a long chat with him over a nice cup of tea. But the longer we keep him, pressure for his release will get stronger. If he's caught alive, I guess he'll have an accelerated chat -- sort of 'No Sleep 'till Eelam".

For SL's sake, VP must be allowed to draw his last breath on the Eastern coast under the tender care of SLA MI.

After seeing these heartbreaking scenes of fleeing civilians (especially the children and old folks), what's being done to fundraise in the West from SL expatriates? Rather than letting the INGOs (many being proven collaborators of the LTTE) dictate the relief effort, the GOSL should immediately initiate a Sri Lankan diaspora relief effort, spearheaded perhaps by a team of religious leaders of the main faith groups in SL?

Rajaratasurfer, how would the two recently surrendered LTTE leaders get access to the ICRC to arrange Fatty's escape? Surely they're going to be kept very busy by MI for the next few months?

We're definitely under the cosh here. This has to be ended sooner rather than later. There's a limit to how much pressure MR & Co can bear from our hypocritical Western 'friends' - especially given our financial situation.

re., the UN team, SL should insist that it includes Pakistani & Chinese officials. That'll keep the Western hypocrites in check.

This Economist article is trying to warn SLDF and GOSL not to allow the triumph to be made to a disaster. It clearly is showing a lead to what UN and other western countries are trying to do.

GOSL obviously do not have such a favorable opinion among these Countries or the agencies. On the other hand it is up to the individual countries to decide what is good for them and it's citizen and not to get bamboozled by Countries who does not understand the whole truth or the picture.

While the above may be true GOSL need to worry about winning a battle and loosing a war for not only Tamils but for rest of the citizens too.

Our job should be to safeguard the citizens of the country irrespective of who they are. (excluding the terrorists, ofcourse)

They are definitely panicking. Maybe SLDF should secretly apprehend VP while pretending he's been killed and take him to a deep dark location and "let the fat lady sing".

The info maybe valuable to keep and use when necessary.

Exactly, I think Prabha would have lot of connections to Raw and other spy agencies, politicians as well as Terrorist.

Island Editorial

There has been a great deal of backstage manoeuvring to have a UN resolution passed against Sri Lanka's war. That the US is behind those moves is only too well known. So, the position the Security Council has taken up on Sri Lanka, as spelt out by Heller, could be considered a defeat for those who sought a UN intervention to rescue the LTTE. Ambassador to the UN H. M. G. S. Palihakkara and his team must be commended for a job well done.

---------------
Yeah, who ever got Heller to our side should be commended. A job well done. I think the next month it would be Turkey who would be chairing the U.N. I don't think there would be much problem there as they have the same problem like us with Kurdish Terrorists.

Washburn69 said...

I think Palihakkara and co. should request an immediate meeting with US officials, esp the ones who're affiliated with H. Clinton, and/or Blake and do a similar briefing.

[OTTAWA — The two-week long Tamil demonstration near Parliament Hill cost Ottawa about $800,000 and the federal government should pay for it, says Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, who chairs the municipality's police board.

El-Chantiry said a final accounting of city costs will be tabled at the board's next meeting Monday, but rough estimates put the police bill at $600,000, ambulance and fire services at $100,000, and other services at $100,000.

El-Chantiry said the protesters' beef was with the federal government, not the municipality, so "there's no reason the taxpayers of the city should pay for the protest."

The protesters, who quit Wednesday, were calling on the federal government to intervene in a decades-long civil war in Sri Lanka.

El-Chantiry also said the city is still waiting for $2 million the Tories promised the city yearly during the election to offset increased costs of policing the nation's capital, for things exactly like the Tamil protest.

Canadians... ask the Tamil terrorist membership to pay this $800K... they have money in reserves for terrorism. Ask the French, if in doubt.

It is ridiculous to ask Canadian provincial taxpayers to foot this bill.

we bisected the NFZ into two (inequal parts). by yesterday the northern piece has been cleared fully. refer to news reports and the map (may be a bit outdated).

as i pointed out b4, the NEXT round will be more difficult of the SLICE/SPLIT strategy. yet i recon that is the way forward. (slice the next piece into two)

but looks like SLA is trying a north to south move. according to bbc, the LTTE bund running along the western border of the NFZ extends almost to the full remaining NFZ under LTTE.

breaching this would be difficult and there is an expanding waterbody (towards south of where we breached the NFZ) making things difficult for a similar strategy.

refer the mapthere is another intersting thing which i'm SURE our battle planners looked into. it has something to do with the MOON!!! yes.on sunday 19, monday 20, tuesday 21, wednesday 22, the difference between the low tide and the high tide became smallest. this definitely helped civilians and forces alike.

look at the low/high tide figures from sunday 19 to wed 22.

sun-low-0.6
sun-high-0.7

mon-low-0.6 (morning & evening)
mon-high-0.7

tue-low-0.5 (morning & evening)
tue-high-0.7

wed-low-0.5 (morning & evening)
wed-high-0.8

this would again happen in about TWO WEEKS!!

the difference may reach a high of,
low-0.3
high-1.0

on some days and would have affected our plans if we didn't plan properly. but planning was perfect!

historical use of tidal movements in war...

Saul said...

DefenceWire,

Once this ends, assuming this ends, there is a distinct niche that you can carve for yourself. As a result of the SL - LTTE war, the SLA is probably one of the most battle hardened armies in the world. I am sure there are valuable combat lessons, strategic/ tactical evaluation of battles and plain boots - on- the - ground stories.

To my knowledge no one is really doing this for the SLA. I think there is a very clear opportunity for you to occupy that space

Long ranger does it, but he is quite theoretical, and it is obvious that he does not have a lot of military contacts.

You can transform this site into a respected military journal, a place where veterans share their stories, or a combination of the two.

Think about it. You will attract a readership from across the world.

To add to what I said above, this blog may be a sideline for you, but assuming you invest the time, it could grow to a respected journals with a limited, print based business model.

SLARMY should mount pressure from all sides which would thin out the terrorists.

However, we have to aim to finish off this face by 15th of May, as many monkys around the world want to have the slice of the pie in various forms.

Guys

What you are seeing is the typical 'pimp reaction'.

When a whore becomes unruly or disobedient, the pimps usually resort to violence and usually molestation. The idea is to break the will of the whore, so that the pecking ordr can be reestablished.

Even after the end of colonial era the western nations managed to establsih a different form of colonial rule by power projection. In SL's denial of their demands they are also seeing an unruly whore who would bend over or suck cock when undr previous regimes.

It is time to castrate the pimp. If the Brits or French decide to land by force, we should and must shoot. And that will make it international chaos; supposedly respectable countries getting into a bitch fight to save a terrorist!

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Fat pig surely would strap 50 Kgs of C-4 around him when we get closer to him.

So, it is no point discussing capturing him live.

We should have concerns of,

1. Not to let the pig escape
2. Protect our troops from pigs final moments.

Pig would never be captured live, unless we use something similar to Chloroform!

NOLTTE=Peace said...

LTTE Cadre Running Like Headless Chickens!Oh, My!



The game is up for the Tamil TigersNEW DELHI: The game’s almost up for the LTTE. It appears that the Government of India is giving the separatist organisation not more than a week of survival.

Sources say that the number of civilians remaining in the fighting area ranges from 15,000 to 25,000, not more. Most are relatives of hardcore LTTE cadre who are prepared to hang on at the beach front till the end.

The government sources say not more than 500-700 LTTE hardcore cadre are left, but they are demoralised and in disarray. Command structures and communications systems have crumbled. There appear to be no instructions on fighting the battle in the last days; thousands of civilians are in need of immediate medical attention and there are reports of violence for food, in a sliver of beach twice as wide as Chennai’s Marina Beach and less long than Delhi’s Patparganj.

The LTTE has dug bunkers and extensively mined the approach routes to their last hold-out which has inhibited rapid progress of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces (SLAF). But, sources say the SLAF is not in a hurry now that they have the luxury of time as well as improved intelligence.

It would appear, say sources, along with the two relatively high-profile walk-ins, Thaya Master and George, roughly 200 cadre have also surrendered. The intelligence picture now emerging suggests that for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi’s ‘’friend’’ Tiger chieftain Velupillai Prabhakaran, it’s nearly curtains.

Prabhakaran is reportedly resisting pressure from diaspora Tamils to make a getaway through a mid-sea amphibious rendezvous that the LTTE arms procurer and logistics maestro, Thailandbased Kumaran Pathmanathan, may set up. The SLAF are using helicopter gunships and long-range snipers across the Mullaithivu lagoon to pick and choose their targets and create havoc among the remaining LTTE cadre. It is an each-tohis/ her-own situation.

That's OK, you can SHOUT back at the Sri Lanka Army....we know you are good at that...we just need more bodies to hide behind. Also, we are having trouble motivating our suicide cadre now, and we know that you have experience getting people in Tamil Nadu to IMMOLATE themselves; that experience is just PERFECT for our line of work here in the NO FIRE ZONE in the Wanni.

You Indians give different caste, race, language and religious groups different rights in your own country, and destroy it from within, but we Sri Lankans will never allow that. India is beset by 13 major insurgencies, endemic caste warfare, separatist nationalist movements, and religious discord, yet you PRESUME to know how to advise Sri Lanka! What IDIOCY! What HYPOCRISY!

Taliban Taking Over Pakistan Warns Hilary Clinton!There are National Security Implications of such a takeover for Sri Lanka! I discussed that in an earlier post at DW.


"Holbrooke meets Pakistani top brass"April 24, 2009

US special envoy Richard Holbrooke Thursday telephoned Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari to discuss the ongoing war against terror as America's top military commander continued his meetings with senior military officers here.

According to a presidential spokesman, Zardari and Holbrooke, the US special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, also discussed the regional situation and the president's visit to the US next month.

During the telephonic conversation, Zardari said Pakistan had been a frontline state in the war against terror and the world community should address the country's concerns and reciprocate in economic terms, Geo TV reported.

Holbrooke responded that the US would not leave Pakistan in the lurch and both countries would take fight against extremism to its logical conclusion.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has told Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, that material support by the international community, particularly the US, to its security forces was crucial for the success of the war against terrorism, Dawn News channel said.

Mullen held separate meetings with his counterpart, General Tariq Majeed, and Pakistan Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal Qamar Suleman and discussed matters related to the war against terror.

During the meetings, Mullen was briefed on the requirements of the armed forces in fighting militancy, the channel quoted military sources as saying.

Lauding the role of the Pakistani forces in fighting terrorism, Mullen assured full cooperation of the US in overcoming the militants operating along the Pakistan-Afghan border.

Holbrooke's call and Mullen's meeting came as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accused the Pakistani government
of "abdicating to the Taliban" and warned that the deterioration of security in the country poses a "mortal threat" to the US and the world."

I think that the Pakistani government is basically abdicating to the Taliban and to the extremists," Clinton said in an appearance before the House Foreign Affairs Committee Wednesday, her first since being confirmed.

Warning that Pakistan is in danger of falling into terrorist hands because of failed government policies, she said the deterioration of security in nuclear-armed Pakistan "poses a mortal threat to the security and safety of our country and the world."

Clinton's warning came as Taliban militants, who implemented Islamic laws in Pakistan's violence-plagued Swat Valley last week, have taken control of a neighbouring district just 100 km from Islamabad.

George Master is ONLYA PAID EMPLOYEE of the LTTE; Forgive Him Guys!Vellupillai Prabhakaran will claim that he is ONLY the paid leader of the LTTE, and deserves only to be rehabilitated himself! He only followed orders to kill people from Tamil Nadu; forgive him TOO.


LTTE keen on a BJP victoryBy Sunil Jayasiri

The LTTE is now keen on a Bharathiya Janatha Party led government coming to power in India, as the current Congress government had failed to meet the expectations of the outfit.

George Master (the translator who worked with slain LTTE political head S.P. Thamilchelvan) who surrendered to the military, with former LTTE spokesman Daya Master, had told defence officials yesterday that the LTTE now wanted to see former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram taking over the reins from Chief Minister Karunanidhi who, ironically, had referred to LTTE leader Prabhakaran as a friend of his.

A senior defence official told Daily Mirror yesterday that George Master, who is a retired Post Master of the Sri Lanka Postal Department, had said this to the defence authorities during interrogations soon after he surrendered to the military.

During the interrogations, George Master had revealed that Norway had been keen that the LTTE give up its armed struggle.

Accordingly, the Norwegian facilitators had repeatedly asked the LTTE to be more flexible at the negotiating table and had reportedly told the LTTE that there had to be a bit of ‘give and take’. However, the LTTE had not heeded any of these requests, the official said, quoting George Master.

He had said that the LTTE had not been serious about the any of the talks, either with the administration of former prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe or that of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, despite international pressure.

According to George Master, he was not a member, but merely a paid employee, of the LTTE.

He had said he had charged Rs. 300 per translation session in the Wanni, while at international fora, such as the Geneva peace talks, he had charged Rs. 3000 per session.

He said that the LTTE considered him an employee and paid him for his work. He functioned mainly as official translator for Thamilchelvan. After the death of Thamilchelvan he had stopped working for the LTTE.

One man who was always correct in this regard was "Paul Harris". His friend Bandula Jayasekara (current high commissioner in Canada) must be a happy man now. LTTE kicked both of them out of Wanni. Then Ranil kicked Paul out of Sri Lanka. I heard that he would be coming back in the near future. We should welcome him.

ear India,

Tamilnadu trying to decide your future in this election based on Sri Lanka.

Don't fall in to LTTE trap. India's future and its government should be decide 100% on the best interest of India. Welfare of your people, development etc..

Not based on a support on a person who killed your PM.

If you fall in to that trap, you have no come back. It willbe agian a pupet government controlled by terrorists.

By helping LTTE, you will move Sri Lanka more towards China and Pakistan.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

I don't think GOSL given numbers are right. We have no way to measure, other than the incoming ppl.

But I do not mean that US and other parties are correct. Most parties use the number as a political statement.

The key element is preparing for ~75000 ppl. Had we done that in the last occasion, we'd have handled the matter better.

Unlike last time, this time we will get active pussycats and civilians mixed. We need proper screening in order to avoid catastrophe. If they start a battle among rescued civilians we will be helpless.

http://www.defence.lk/new.asp?fname=20090422_03

Same website at Last modified on: 4/24/2009 11:29:39 AM say “Sri Lankan security forces are continuing with calculated multi-pronged maneuvers intended to liberated an estimated number of the remaining 15,000 -20,000 hostages from terror clutches.”
http://www.defence.lk/new.asp?fname=20090424_05

Accordingly number liberated from NFZ has to be in the range of 230,000 to 235,000?
Is this correct?
No one can tell or predict exact number of innocent civilians dragged as hostages by the LTTE. But this error is too large to ignore.

On a later date when we cannot show balance people in our Transits Resettlement camps, LTTE and IC may frame SLA for Genocide. Already some videos are out to show unaccountable number of deaths/kills inside vehicles as left over are only ashes.

Can some one request the webmaster of www.defence.lk for a possible correction if there is any!

WHERE ARE THE INDIANS...I MEAN THE INDIAN HOSPITAL AND INDIAN MEDICAL STAFF...?

Thusitha said...

24-hours given as a getaway for Prabhakaran? - Ranil
Apr 24 (CT) Opposition Leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe has questioned the government whether a 24-hour deadline was given to the LTTE as a getaway for Prabhakaran, who is trapped and helpless within the No Fire Zone. Speaking at a public rally on April 22 in Gampaha, he said that this raised public speculation whether the deadline was imposed on mutual agreement between the government and the LTTE

------------
What a fuck****ing Wanker (Sorry if there are U.N.P guys here). At this critical stage, this fu**er is trying to undermine our Country. Is he trying to achieve what Prabhakaran couldn't (by destroying this country). We need all the support we can get and what kind of shit is he trying to pull.

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright said...

We need to go through the archives and collect statements from the 'experts' that said the LTTE cannot be defeated militarily! Then thorw it at their faces, like how the stalingrad comparison was thrown (with power) at the face of B. Raman!

You guys did you hear one Bansal,an defence analyst from India said over the Aljezeira today?
This is what I said too earlier in that India await MR winning a grand election after winning the war to implement changes (Whatever India wants with twothirds majority twisting MR's hand)That's why I said SL patriots should allow some JVP (RW not at any cost)
seats (not because you like JVP) so that not to give MR the twothird majority India & West banking on.Please understand India is a tiger waiting to pounce!

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright said...

About RW...

It is a good MR had a weak opposition leader, so that he could have done what he wanted with the war.
If there was a powerful opposition leader, who would have exploited the bad economy and brought the government down. So RW did a great service unwittingly!

Sam Perera said...

Patriots,

What is that white ship Rama and Hudson was talking about in yesterday's radio? Isn't it less likely that it is a foreign intruder? At least MOD and SLN should know about it, isn't it? The way Rama answered some questions, it seems that something big has happened and I hope it is the good news.

Sam Perera said...

TTBR,

I agree about RW. However, I disagree with a weak opposition leader in general. Instead what we need is a strong patriotic opposition who will stand by the government in the times of extreme threats to the nation. Of course, the UNP led by RW and infested by Kiriella, Jayawardena, Abeywardena, Karunanayake, R. Senanayake, D. Jayasekera and Samarawickrama is NOT that opposition. At the same time, the strong opposition should be there to counter the government going crazy in other issues.

Indian said...

Ananda-USA,
There's a lot of hushed talk that MR himself has offered a package to Nambiar.Yes you heard it right,a package on MR's terms.Its being considered and hence the silence from Nambiar - his mission was not to submit a report but to hear out MR.

Obviously MR seems to be thinking to finish this off before May 13th.Though the military aid has come from China,India had absorbed the IC pressure emanating from EU and US.

EU and US dont want to upset India in this conflict and have so far made some noise and left it at that.Its not a open secret that India enjoys better relation with EU and US and they would need India as a strategic ally against the growing power's of China.

Though one cant predict,MR seems to be of the view,if a change of Govt does happen at Centre,then India might not be able to absorb this pressure.Well he is right in his assesment.If we have a Non-Congress,Non-BJP Govt at Centre,I wont rule this out.

He may not want the 2 years good job going for nothing and hence the deal.Suprisingly he is wiling to trade-off the NUISANCE for a 100% liberated Srilanka,instead of a 99% liberated Srilanka with NUISANCE too,when noone is around to absorb the IC pressure and he has to maintain a status-quo.

By the way,how good is the Navy's cordon around the NFZ area.We have had a boat with 19 people reaching shores of TN.Though they all are civilians and have been sent to Mandapam camp,to say that they have reached thus far inspite of the ring formed by SL and Indian Navies,its shocking is an understatement.

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright said...

Sam Perera,
Agree. The opposition is weak, and even when it comes to other issues, the UNP has failed badly to mobilise public opinion. That is mainly due to the way RW has handled the war situation. When the SLDF was progressing very well he made such idiotic remarks (some of them published in an earlier comment) he and his party lost credibility big time.
Need a strong and patriotic opposition.

Mahen + all;

I heard a disturbing news. It is a virtual evidence for the fact that BBQ is not in the cards. Either of other options is taking shape. And that is causing everything to stand still.

I sincerely wish that Fatpig will NOT surrender as that is the worst possible case. Given that BBQ is not possible, I'd settle into a underhand vanish and life in exile.

Mahen, one positive note is that ~500 bravehearts may not have to die to make the necessary frounds for the BBQ. Again anything is OK other than surrender, which is a virtual victory to them.

I know you guys are gagged. Mariyakade/Puran etc too. Pls give us what you can.

All my hopes are left in the greatest strategist and diplomat of Mahinda Rajapakse. It looks that even GR/SF etc can't do much now.

Mango said...

Saul,

I think a lot of people here are getting upset over statements made by foreign powers urging SL to have ceasefires, pauses etc etc. We know that these countries have to say these things for internal and external political reasons. It's called Realpolitik.

What matters here is what these countries do and not what they say, with the exception of Norway :)

So, I wouldn't worry too much about posters getting pissed off at India, as long as India supports GOSL in its current position. To use a well-known example, the hunting down and destruction of the LTTE's supply fleet, by the SLN was only made possible through real-time satellite intel supplied by 'certain' countries. It'll never be publicised, and nor should it.

Look at the UK. The current Labour regime makes the most asinine comments about SL (and recently most unhelpfully about Kashmir), because they need to show their simple-minded supporters that 'something is being done' about the 'terrible situation' in Sri Lanka.

India's most important post-conflict role will be to ensure that the GOSL cannot put off whatever reforms are required to prevent a resurgence of this terrible conflict.

Indian said...

Mango,
Bingo.Thats a very sensible post.

But it really causes heartburns when people start pouring venom without seeing the real reason.Ananda-USA's post on India was one such.I was surprised for whatever I saw here,he was one of few sensible posters.

Couldnt agree more about the last para though.SLDF's have decisively dealt a blow to Tiger's militarily.

But its just the beginning of a turbulent phase for Srilanka.What lies in store now will purely decide if Srilanka will be back to square one or not.

These people who have been liberated have lived in Tiger territory for close to a decade now?God only knows what kind of propoganda they had to face and what lies deep in their hearts.

Srilanka needs to win over the hearts of this people.They have just been returned from hellmarish experiences and their minds will be at its futile best.Striking a right note is as much easier as causing heart burns and making this people think whatever was told in the tiger propoganda was true.

Once these people are made to feel the "Oneness" and are embraced with open arms,the Eelam dreams will vapourize

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright said...

From a BBC article published online now....

'Now is summertime in Vavuniya, where the thousands of displaced people are housed. The conditions are hot and humid, with the daytime temperature close to 35C.'

Wonder what winter in vavuniya is like? There was another article that described Vavuniya as arid and hot! This is bloody sri lanka, and whole of vanni is like that. The jist of the article was that the civilians are sent to hot and arid places! Are these BBC reporters smoking something?

"28-year-old Prarameswaran Subramaniam.
My whole life I am suffering at the hands of the Sri Lankan government and army. In '87 my dad was killed by the Sri Lankan navy, and now 25 days ago my family were killed by poison gas, chemical weapons," he says.

"I was held for nearly two years in jail without any reason."

Can someone in Sri Lanka verify this information and prove him wrong? chemical weapon!!! Must be from VPs ass!

He says he came to London two months ago, but will not explain under what circumstances for fear that those who helped him could be arrested, tortured and killed.

Thanks. Part of the reason (for angry posts) could be India's original part in helping to create & support the LTTE. But karmic blowback ensured that the idiot LTTE murdered Rajiv. So, let's call it quits and move on. Otherwise we'll be arguing over the Ramayana, flying monkeys and rest. To paraphrase a famous saying, Sri Lanka has produced more history than can be consumed locally.

Economic growth, electricity, clean water, clothes for schoolkids. These are the important things to concentrate on, after the LTTE is annihilated.

dear friends

update barring classified details

Prabhakaran and his group isolated now closer to two clicks west of vallamullivakai

his son, pottu amman, bhanu, soosai also sighted

the biggest risk is excape with civilians or flee southwest along the lagoon and hide in mulativu forrests (mullayaweli area),

But the plan seems to be wait it out until the civilian carnage causes a foreign rescue operation.

the operation should end in perhaps hours if there is no political interference.

more delay in military operations will lead to more civilian casualties.
