Military or Diplomatic Action is the question

There seems to be an interesting tussle developing between military action and diplomacy in Sri Lanka. The main proponents of the two stances, incidentally are members of the Sri Lanka government.

DefenceWire's sources indicated that Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse is pushing for an immediate clean wipe-out of the LTTE surrounded in the NFZ whilst President Rajapakse is more in favour of a diplomatic approach to precede military action in this final phase.

This does not mean that the President is not in favour of wiping out the LTTE, but is more sensitive towards existing diplomatic alternatives before exploring the military option in full. While both approaches have their merit, a few senior military and political advisors are arguing for a mixed approach.

While planning for a military onslaught continues, field commanders emphasized the need to drain out at least another 50,000 civilians from the NFZ before any military action is to take place. This they say could happen within the next few weeks. A government delegation is to leave for Kilinochchi shortly to examine the capacity of the security forces to welcome such a large number of civilians.

Meanwhile diplomatic relations between Norway and Sri Lanka has been strained particularly over a recent attack by LTTE supporters on the Sri Lanka Embassy in Norway and also due to concerns expressed by the security sector that certain diplomatic missions are misinterpreting or spreading misinformation regarding recent military actions. If these strains are to continue, the activities of local human rights lobby groups who are on the payroll of these embassies could also be investigated.

A particular group in the government is pressing for the severing of diplomatic ties with a few of these countries while others expressed a more cautious approach. The military pointed-out that it had all the international support it needs to continue from countries like China, Pakistan and Russia. Political entities highlight the need to also engage the powerful countries not fully backing the operations to avoid international (western) isolation.

UN Security Council President says Sri Lanka's Statement is not accurate - 13th April 2009

LRRU said...

It seems that all Leaders make the same mistake & do not learn from previouse ones.

I thought Mahinnda was an exception but he seems to be in the same boat.

Can't we make Gotabaya the President at least for a Month to wipe out these bastards.

What Diplomacy with LTTE fuckers & their White Masters.

I'm loosing credibility of Mahinda also, one he declared ceasfire, two his Diplomacy at the last phase if Defencewire reporting is accurate,

Sam Perera said...

LRRU,

I agree with you. MR is doing a mistake by letting LTTE to keep hostages in the long run. There is no diplomatic approach we can try with LTTE. They need to be wiped out without a delay. The sooner we remove VP, the lesser the pains the civilians have to go through. Could US have saved the ship captain if they let diplomacy to take place? In any case, what kind of diplomacy are we talking about with a ruthless killer and mass hostage taker? I hope that the common sense will prevail here.

Saduni said...

Hi All,

(1) To take 50000 civilian out of region = assume 1000 per day = requires 50 days = around 2 months

(2) International and local pressure may be dangerous during those days.

(3)Possible escape of LTTE leaders, plenty of time to re-organize here and out of country.

(4) Possible effect of the mental condition of the soilders

On the other hand there may be a large number of killing of innocent tamils during the operation, that may be a problem.

This is a difficult time for us. However SLA will somehow overcome it. Just because, SLA has

DETERMINATION

CASC said...

I understand that only 18 civilians escaped on the 13th while the ceasefire was in effect. The LTTE will not let the civilians go for very obvious reasons. Time is not on our side. The readiness and momentum of the SLA formations can't be maintained for an extended period without serious consequences. Hopefully the lull is temporary. The last time we had this opportunity was in Vadamarachchi, and Prabhakaran played his cards well and survived for two decades.

LRRU said...

Oh Shit,

I was counting 48 hrs to finish eagerly thinking that Military will go for an onslaught.

After reading defencewire my dream was shattered some what; now I can't even sleep????

F***k the western isolation.

Once we win, they will come. This is bullshit, everybody needs SL because of our location in the Indian Ocean.
These are all myths created by the LTTE supporters. We debunk the invincibility of LTTE. The same way we can debunk this Western Isolation myth. We need to wipe these f**ckers out. Do not let them continue.

MR, please do not stop now. Our IC standing has already been tainted. There is nothing left. So please, please continue the war and once and for all finish it.

Corey said...

Guys,
The Army has done its job. It is now the time to do our job: To counter the false propaganda of the ltte, which is now amounting to blatant lies.

Many Canadians and Europeans are getting pissed off at the protesters who are blocking streets, and now defacating on the streets.

I read a 'comment' from a Canadian who accused those who 'protested' for five days in Toronto of " getting to the greener pastures of Canada through pretended 'genocide', going on welfare (Canadian Tax-payers money) and promoting a banned terror organization.

The tide is turnig on the peelamists' propaganda machine. But for the next six months, we wll need to get together and do our part. Write to foreign politicians, newspapers, editorials. Even posting our side on a 'cooents' section of a web article helps.

Please - let's get together and spend 15 minutes everyday, to write something, somewhere, against peelam lies.

-It is our duty on behalf of our motherland.

In the previous blog, I have pasted some statements I have made to newewriters etc. Please take a look and modify as you wish.

Thusitha said...

The government should make it clear, the Tamil civilian lives are the responsibility of the LTTE and the diaspora who supports them. The LTTE going to blow huge ammunition dumps are just myths, if they do, that would be the end of the LTTE as well. So continue the operations and destroy these guys. The cost of the war is very high and we should end this war ASAP.

Corey said...

We got $500 million from Libya, Now ADB gave us a loan of $150 million.
Thanks, guys.

Peelamists - go eat shit!!!! - The smelly ones you defacated on the streets of Ottawa!!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

victor said...

Stopping offensive operations is not good. Even for the diplomatic efforts to work, militarily the thugs have to feel completely helpless.

There is a looooooooong track record which says diplomatic solutions will not work with these vampires.

Snipe anybody who is carrying a gun on the border of NFZ.

Hope the beechcraft catches the terras killing civilians on video. Will be good for further support for military action. If the army has any such videos so far, should release them. Will be gory, but will go a long way to counter genocide propaganda by the rats.

Thusitha said...

In very near future, every man, women and dog in US and Europe would be working to pay off their debts to China. Therefore Sri Lankans, we need to get rid of our mentality of Almighty west and the continuous sucking up to the old Colonial Masters Continue our struggle to get rid of this LTTE menace.
No more Cease Fires!!!!!

carl said...

defencewire,
this is totally out of topic but is that a silenced mp5 with the rider? and why are they riding a bike in a diving gear? and how do you differentiate ranks in those combat suits? that green patch above the sf emblem mean anything?

Diyasena said...

Anandasngaree could be an LTTP/TNA mole sent to sabotage the government efforts from within..The LTTP succeessfully got rid of Kadira and got close to Dougie on several times..The above had lot more tighter security..Yet not a single attempt has been made on A'sangaree? Besides what has he done apart from writing an occassional letter to VP?

Suranimala said...

Does Mahinda want to go to hell by stopping the victory .It is just knocking to the door . 30 years we spent our lives by hearing about the war every day,at least one solider was killed by peelamist some where in the country.
Come on we should think about our next generations .Will we let them also to spend their lives by hearing the bullshits of peelam.
This is the time .History has given the opportunity and produced the men who are capable to do the job.So are we going to waste all the sacrifices made by them to come to this stage .if yes ..peter is correct we are modays ..

Gringo said...

If we hesitate to take calculated risks, all sacrifices made so far by our troops would be in vain.

Tamils terrorists have to exit Sri Lanka through DEATH ONLY.

Just like the US Navy Seals did... storm the place when they least expect...

Never forget... War or peace... if Tamil terrorists are allowed to live, they will kill.

Killing of nine civilians by the Tamil terrorists in past two days' is enough proof.
Never forget... War or peace.. if Tamil terrorists are around... they will kill.

Killing of nine civilians by the Tamil terrorists in past two days' is enough proof.

President needs to go to Dalada Maligawa... say the best prayers and make that decision for the sake of the country.

" Mailaravana,
Thanks for that analysis about the 100000 in 10 sq miles. I just did a cut and paste on a London news website without attributing it to you... Hope you do not mind.
Was helpful as these tiger supporters are making a big noise here these days..."

No worries Bro!

"at least 50000 people? I don't think so, as I have said before. However, if that is the case then it would make it very difficult for even snipers to take action. On the other hand, surely the SF's can mingle and assassinate the heads of LTTE in one fell swoop. Time to do this is now!

DW,
"A particular group in the government is pressing for the severing of diplomatic ties with a few of these countries while others expressed a more cautious approach"

I note that my post advocating taking the maximum extent of the law to prosecute countries, NGO's or individuals who have supported
"Crimes against Humanity" in Sri Lanka appears to have not been permitted. So either,

a) it was missed or deleted by mistake
b) the extra information I provided was too valuable to be in a public forum
c) or you considered me a "f*@&wit" for posting something that may offend "friendly" countries.

Glad to see disagreements occur even in SLG. It's only GOOD FOR DEMOCRACY! Heh heh heh.

Time to time DW coming with fairy tales:
- RAW plotting Prabha's escape?
- 58 was incapable division
- LTTE waits for Vaiko as Special Forces do their...
- SF hunts LTTE team as plane lands in Visuamadu

This is anothr one. Probably he/she trying to check the public opinion against stopping the war. Or spread a flase info to hence creating strong opinion against stopping the actions.

It is good you update the blog. But this month award goes to D.B.S Jeyaraj for that masterpiece!

DW, Can ya please explain how the heck the norwies go into the safefire zone ? Or am I jumping the gun here ?

Also, ltte idots are trying to get on Oprah Winfry show in Chicago on march from Toronto.

Hey Carl Malli,

"and why are they riding a bike in a diving gear?"

You make me laugh ....and its a good thing to do early in the morning ....

Yes, it looks a MP5: look at the gun at the bottom of the pic(http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://fragcdo.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/mp5a4_sd5.jpg&imgrefurl=http://fragcdo.com/2007/12/07/mp5-series/&usg=__78zn2tJ3k5DVLAiv3FcnPvjkLA0=&h=338&w=450&sz=26&hl=en&start=17&um=1&tbnid=3zOl8EGU36Dl9M:&tbnh=95&tbnw=127&prev=/images%3Fq%3DMP5%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1)

But its definitely not Diving equipment. The rider in front ....these goggles are used by riders of bikes, jet-skies, ATV's & snowmobiles ....well it looks like diving mask too. As for the guy in the pillion, he is wearing a gas mask sans the 2 filters....not that its going to do him any good except keep dust out of his eyes. May be just for "Pada Show"

Have a good day mate

Romeo said...

Guys, I have said this before and would like to reiterate:

We cannot afford to have stale mate condition with LTTE due to civilian factor. We must act without delay and wipe out LTTE leadership before it is too late.

To do the above, we need a plan to outsmart LTTE.

Plan must include following out comes.

1. Keep LTTE leadership away from the sea.
2. Bring civilians into an easy to attack area.
3. Completely eliminate tigers without a major threat to civilians.

How can we achieve the above?

Select a open area without buildings which is clear from buried arms, trenches and earth bunds closer to present NFZ.

Declare that area as the new NFZ and withdraw SLA forces from there with water tight defensive guard. Ask all civilians to move to the newly demarcated NFZ.

Attack ferociously to old NFZ from north south and east of Nanthi Kadal that way civilians are forced to move out. LTTE and leadership will also move with them. Then box LTTE and leadership without giving them access to the sea or lagoons.

LTTE will resist to move or let civilians to comply. However, with superior fire power and numbers SLA can dictate terms.

During this transition more civilians can escape terror clutches.

What do you all think?

Moshe Dyan said...

dw,

thanks for the update. agree with you. this strange thing was brewing up behind the scenes.

always it was politics that saved vezapillai, NOTHING else.

ppl should reconsider whether they want to bypass REPRESENTATIVE democracy in favour of DIRECT (old greek style) democracy for this instance only.

if the president is unwilling, keep him in house arrest and proceed with the war. MR is fearing his skin. he is playing dutugemunu too early!!!

i'm 100% sure ppl will support such a temporary move.

this will also send a powerful message to the IC that WE ARE FCUKING serious about what we are doing.

Thank you DW for the update…You seem to have adopted a diplomatic approach to your posting too….

I have an important point to back what Corey said…..

Corey said...
Guys,
The Army has done its job. It is now the time to do our job: To counter the false propaganda of the ltte, which is now amounting to blatant lies.

**********************

I totally agree. We as a country has to show the world that we are not barbarians and LieTTE bastards in their false propaganda had made Sri Lankan Buddhists as killers of "innocent Tamils"

Our Navy has to deploy some more fool proof technology to detect any LieTTE bastard escaping by sea..on surface or underwater. In the mean time our ground forces will continue their good work done all these months including the Madu church operation which is similar in diplomatic aspect. MR has done the right thing. These two days lost to us is a gain in the internationally. Now the whole world knows that we have given two days truce and LieTTE bastards were exposed again...

Now let the party begin...Let our boys continue some harvesting.

As Corey said, we have to do a bit of hard work in the Electronic and media warfare. We will have to write and expose these bastards LieTTE to any one who could change the mindset of the world at large. Tamil Diaspora has done this for the last 30 odd years and we at least now should start going in to every corner of the Earth.

For those who are living away from Sri Lanka, even while travelling in busses or trains, in professional gatherings, talking to strangers, we should tell the truth of what is happening and the true picture of LTTE to be exposed. I have been doing this for years…even with the cab drivers. We all should do the same. If we do not do that, we should be feeling guilty that we are not supporting and helping Mother Lanka in this dark time. This is what Tamil Diaspora had done to change the mindset of the west. Otherwise to them, we all look the same and they find it hard to distinguish between a Tamil and a Sinhalese.

In addition we should write to news papers in opinion columns, at least a few lines…to keep the momentum going in all the fronts.

LET OUR MOTHER LANKA BE HAPPY OF ALL OF HER CHILDREN… LET’S NOT ALLOW ANY FORCE TO DIVIDE AND MISUSE THIS BEAUTIFUL LAND

Moshe Dyan said...

OTOH MR may be aiming for the WPC election that is just around the corner.

in WPC election, tamil votes are significant and UPFA stands SOME chance of getting some of those votes IF there is no ongoing fighting.

if there is fighting there is a VERY slim chance of getting tamil votes.

this MAY be the case.

lets wait and see.

Make LTTE busy. Then civies can come out. Im sure SLDF have enough ways to make this happen.

Government:
-----------
If the govt is going to sing same old song we will see this war for another decade. Just calculate how many lives will be lost and the impact on our economy.

Civilians:
----------
Also do not forget that these civies are not 100% hostages. They had enough opportunities to come into govt controlled areas during the first phase of the war. There are lots of Mahaviru families that got all the benefits from the LTTE movement. They stick with LTTE, because they thought that LTTE can come back. So let them pay little bit and lets care for those who are actually go against LTTE. Do not let them to live in camps for ever. Finish the war and start the re-settlement.

IC:
---
Do not forget that IC is not the entire population out sode SL. All these allegations are coming from very few sources. Especially norway and some NGOs. They have done nothing but to prolong this war. We have enough evidence to prove what activities they have done and what intentions they had. Our diplomats need to work more than this. Be offensive instead of defensive. Let them feel the pressure too. Let the media to pick the heat. Pay some good movie directors and create documentaries. People like conspiracy theories. Broadcast them on internet. No need to BBC, CNN for everything. Expose them too if required.

Saman said...

DW,

In your last post you implied that things were under control and government’s stands powerful in the face of IC pressure. However, you have contradicted that view in this post.

Guys,

In my view, the tied being shifting towards where we are now since mid March. It drastically changed since the last debacle of LTTE loosing over 700 hard core fighters. We must note that it appears our great success above was quite accidental and an irony. That was the first time we bagged as many terras in one strike. I thought we would have marched straight in and bagged the rest. LTTE were in total disarray and their moral and structure would have been at the lowest ebb.

I can not believe what I am reading now and what MR’s strategy here is. I am sure most of us feel the same. Until and unless top layer LTTE is taken out future of the country is doomed. Even Anandasangaree cat is out the sack. (I always believed him having a humanist-separatist agenda).

Developments are extremely concerning,

1. I am of the view India/RAW worked overtime moving and planting the epicenter of Dravidian separatism in the North-East of Sri Lanka (in 80’s).
2. The modern diplomacy is nothing but passing their headaches to other soft targets. They do it by first crippling the target nation by political, social and economical strategies. Then they hang couple of carrots knowing the soft target has no where to go.
3. The agitations India felt (separatists able to create) in 80’s now happening in Oslo, London, Australia, Norway etc in 2009. West is many a times less tolerant having to bear some one else’s headaches. That means they will be hell bent to bring the epicenter of Tamil homeland back to a soft country. Which is, in my view, happening as we speak.
4. Scums like Anandasangaree have sniffed it. That is why he is changing the colour.
5. USA state department has dictated, on record, that Sri Lankan political settlement to Tamils must incorporate Tamil Diaspora. What a statement. (it has all the whole marks of creating Israel). LTTE never claimed North-East is “SRI LANKAN TAMILS” traditional home land. Did they? But they claimed Ealam is the Traditional Homeland of Tamils. Now that next generation of Tamils (some are not even citizens of Sri Lanka the rest do not want to loose refugee stated for economic reasons) are fasting in these capital cities.

Well, if MR and GoSL decide the diplomacy is the way to go – time has come to reinstate fucking Ranil as a patriot too. I still have lot of respect for MR/GR combination. But if what DW is telling is true (which I suspect so) then Time has come for a Sinhalese uprising and our crack commandos must lead a reactionary army. I wish to know any other alternative.

I was furious about this 48 hr truce which resulted in NOTHING. This will only lead to more lives lost in both sides. Now, the stalemate is gonna continue. What the govt must do is to resettle the IDPs fast and show that to the world while taking out NFZ. No point showing these news and video clips in sinhala. We need english speaking reporters in frontline.

Hi,

CP 24 Vote Result I believe this is a good example, for refusing LTTE terrorism from Canada and other countries. Most of the people in these countries, other than the real terrorists and their supporters, know that LTTE is killing innocent Tamil people and not allow them to escape from the LTTE clutches.

If we stop military operations in this stage that means all the moral of the soldiers going and it's also moral support for all the ltte diaspora they think this is a result of protests they did in western countries.
another thing if we give more time to ltte prabakarn and senior ltte leaders have more time to do & think.
DON'T FORGET WHY WE WON THIS WAR BCOZ WE DIDN'T GIVE ANYTIME TO REORGANIZE THAT'S THE SECRET
MAHIND RAJAPAKSHA DON'T BEND TO WESTERN IDEAS THEY NEVER HELP US THIS WAR AGAINST TERRORISM.

Terrorism Sponsored Abroad Comes Home to Roost: Similarities Between the Taliban and the LTTEPatriots,

There is a close similarity between the Taliban taking over the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan, and the LTTE taking over Tamil Nadu in the Future. Please consider the following facts:

TALIBAN:1. ORIGIN: Pakistan Govt. through Pakistan's ISI Intelligence Organization created, trained, funded and supported the Taliban against the Soviets and subsequent Afghan government.

2. RISE TO POWER: After the Taliban seized power in most of Afghanistan, the ISI (and Pakiston Govt.) continued to support the Taliban against the Northern warlords.

3. EJECTION FROM HOME COUNTRY: The Taliban was kicked out of Afghanistan by the US forces, assisted by the Northern warlords.

4. GOING ABROAD TO ROOST: The Taliban then moved into NWFP of Pakistan where a large number of co-ethnic Pashtuns live.

5. HIDDEN GOVT SUPPORT: Pakistan's declared policy is to oppose and defeat the Taliban and Al-Quaida, yet there are significant residual elenets within the ISI that support and aid the Taliban, contrary to National Policy.

6. FIRST STEP TOWARDS DISINTEGRATION OF SPONSORING COUNTRY: Today (April 14, 2009), recognizing their inability to enforce Central Govt rule over the Swat Valley in the NWFP, Pakistan Govt signed an agreement ceding power over it to the Taliban, and agreed to the Imposition of Sharia Muslim Law by them in that district. The Swat Valley is quite close to the Capital Islamabad and the military center Rawalpindi!

LTTE:1. ORIGIN: Indian Govt. through India's RAW Intelligence Organization, aided and abetted by Tamil Nadu politicians, created, trained, funded and supported the LTTE as a part of Indira's Gandhi foreign policy against the move of Sri Lanka away from then-socialist India towards a capitalist-leaning freemarket economy, and alliances with western countries. principally the US.

2. RISE TO POWER: After the LTTE seized power in the Sri Lanka's North and East, the India, Tamil Nadu and RAW continued to support Eelam against the GOSL.

3. EJECTION FROM HOME COUNTRY: Now, the LTTE has been defeated militarily and is posed on the verge of total ejection from Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lanka Defence Forces.

4. GOING ABROAD TO ROOST: The LTTE activists are now working all over Tamil Nadu to capture political power in Tamil Nadu where a large number of co-ethnic Tamil live. Their strategy seems to be to drive wedges between the various communities in Tamil Nadu, to exacerbate existing divisions and create new ones that will serve that purpose, AS THEY DID IN SRI LANKA. To this end, I am expecting not only acceptable political techniques, but also the emergence of violent incidents to provoke reactions that can be used against groups opposed to them...as they dis in Sri Lanka. Also, these will be increased levels of fund raising in Tamil Nadu, including Bank Robberies, Extortion, Credit Card Fraud, etc. I expect them primarily to displace and replace the current crop of communal political allies (Vaiko, Ramadoss, Thirumavalavan, Karunanidhi). This is equivalent of the the Talibanization of the NWFP in Pakistan, but unlike in the case of Talibanization, these non-LTTE communal leaders will not physically survive takeover by the scorched-earth LTTE-ers.

5. HIDDEN GOVT SUPPORT: India's declared policy is to oppose and defeat the LTTE, yet there are significant residual elements within the RAW that support and aid the LTTE, contrary to National Policy of India. Most of these operatives are Indian Tamils who were selected to interface to Sri Lankan Tamils during Indira Gandhi's era. As such, many RAW agents will be driven by ethnic agendas, while others will be driven by a national interest with regional hegemonic attitudes focused on trying to control instead of befriending Sri Lanka. Many RAW agents, former and current, have written publicly available articles bemoaning the "loss of the LTTE" as India's lever for controlling Sri Lanka. Recall that this attitude is a merely a continuation of Indira's Gandhi's policy towards Sri Lanka that precipitated this problem in the first place.

6. FIRST STEP TOWARDS DISINTEGRATION OF SPONSORING COUNTRY: Today LTTE activists are agitating in Tamil Nadu, developing constituencies and trying to forge links to other Indian politicians, such as Mayawati, the Chief Minister of UP. They are competing for the same powerbase that their erstwhile former allies Vaiko, Ramadoss, Thirumavalavan command now, but will lose to the pro-LTTE forces in the future. These are largely the population segments consisting largely of the disenfranchised in Tamil Nadu: low-castes and dalits outside the caste system, politically active students, the poor, the illiterate, the jobless and the landless. They will not capture seats in the Lok Sabha in the upcoming elections; but are likely to do so in overwhelming numbers in the next, UNLESS the established politicians and the Central Govt recognizes what is happening, and moves quickly to nip it in the bud. I very much doubt that they will have either the vision or the will to do so. This could well become the first successful state if India to secede from the Indian Union.

The primary victims of the scenario I paint here, will be the people of Tamil Nadu. But, their safety is the concern of India and the unstable foolish leaders of Tamil Nadu.

The safety and survival of Sri Lanka is my sole concern. It is upto Sri Lanka to put its own house in order, and to ERECT A POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND MILITARY FIREWALL that excludes the pro-LTTE-ers, in particular, and Indians in general, from exporting their diseases to Sri Lanka.

We must prevent all influxes of Greeks Bearing Gifts of Trojan Horses from India to Sri Lanka.

LRRU you are dead right on that!

I am a PAYE tax payer: my father bankrolled my education in the States and had to return home to take care of him and work in this country. I have been a honest citizen; diligent tax payer and I do not enjoy a single perk that some of my fellow citizens enjoy being government servants.

I am prepared to pay my taxes and undergo any hardship to see this country go forward in the right direction. I thought MR had the guts to do it - finish the war; make peace and then make our society emulate Singapore in word and deed.

It looks like MR is getting butterflies in his stomach - what could he tell China and Russia? What is he going to tell those brave soldiers who sacrificed their life and limb to come thus far? What is he going to tell this honest tax paying citizen?

It is gradually dawning on me that to be patriotic is to be a two legged donkey. It looks like there is a better deal being a third class citizen of white man's country because the white man has the balls to do whatever to overcome the obstacles in his path. What did President Obama do with Somali pirates? He gave them the best diplomatic response: stone cold silence and the fireworks in the night! Mr. President, learn from that young President of the USA. If you can't do the job get away and give it to your brother; take it back if he gives it back to you but I doubt if we would favour a man who does not have the XXXX!

I want to make a couple of statements.

comment moderation

we have been trying the delegation of comment moderation among our team but this work is done purely on a voluntary basis so I cannot force anyone to do it as a must.

diplomatic focus

there is a lot of politics going on at the moment and its trickling down into defence establishment like in any functioning democracy. we have guys who are experts in this and have their eyes and ears to the ground. we have to report some of these developments because they are inter-related.

the picture

No that's not me or any of us. This picture had been taken by a well known photographer and it was sent to us by one of you. We didn't crop it to remove his name because he deserves credit. since it is not for commercial use, we do not think he would mind.

Political Observer said...

The SL President is right.

The LTTE will win the propaganda war if there are civilian causalities.

Therefore it makes little sense to play the game the LTTE wants. Also, consider the long term effect: if the SLA is involved in such an Op, it will undermine future political reconciliation, which is essential for Sri Lanka.

There are many who think going in and getting the LTTE among 50K civilians is easy. That is very foolish.

I have mentioned before the evacuation of civilians via landing craft, as there are four of these vessels. They can threaten to take about 1000 refugees together at any one time. More of these vessels can be "borrowed" from India, Pakistan, Indonesia, etc., giving the Op a legitimate international dimension.

Even BBC TV crews can be put on the "Mercy" landing craft so the LTTE can say "Hello" to them with an AK burst or even a mortar round, and the BBC can report this action of murdered Thamil civilians to the loving Diaspora live. If that happens, the GOSL will have all the political capital needed to storm the NFZ from all sides.

If the GOSL tries to rescue the civilians from all sides, including the sea, it will be harder for the LTTE to fight back, as the cadre have to be on the offensive at the very edges of the NFZ, and thus open to SLA snipers. The key to military action is to degrade these forward line cadre holding back civilians.

Now that the US Navy Seals have done their bit, I can openly say, that the SLN Special Forces can do something similar. They can get closer to the NFZ and pick off the LTTE cadre one by one. I suspect the SLN are already at it.

P.O.

Tamils defecating Ottawa... report!
---------------------------
this is a common practice in Tamil Nadu, few years ago it was a open hell, no toilets at all. how they go to toilet in the morning is, there's an open field, open the gates for the first batch of people, they fininsh the job, open the gates for pigs from other end to feed them, after hearding back, that second batch comes and this continues. I was 5 days without a shit while my short stay in Madrass. this is a true story.

GaalleMalli said...

I agree with LRRU on some points. Indeed, it would be a waste if all resources invested on this war has to end without completely accomplished and if we give in to terrorists last moment. WTF and other pro-tiger groups are trying their best to influence IC. MR is under pressure wondering if something goes wrong but we should not give in to these terrorists.

IC has a moral obligation to protect a civil society from a terrorist group.

They must pressure LTTE to lay down arms and trapped civilians let go. GOSL must strengthen diplomatic mission with IC and convince them to stop funding and supporting LTTE. Srilankan Diaspora must protest in their countries and ask for explanations from their Politicians why they support LTTE. IC must be convinced solution to problem is not a separate state as EU, Norway justify. The issue is not ethnic violence. Tamil Grievances are false allegations to justify their cause of terrorism. The IC doesn’t realize the truth. Who is right who is wrong? So diplomacy is necessary but shouldn’t give in to terrorists! What we can do is support government and military to finish this war as soon as possible to avoid further escalation. In that case I agree if Gotabaya or General Fonseka become president :)

Do what you can do to the country, without waiting government do it for you.

Pop in to popular websites like You Tube and type "Sri Lanka", "Sri Lanka News". Then you find many Tamil Diasporas shitting about this war to win sympathy of IC. Give your opinion about Sri Lanka War. What think about LTTE? Tell how they traumatize, terrorize people.
There millions of Tamils on the streets of EU, USA, Canada, UK, Norway pushing Politian’s for a ceasefire. Politian’s need Tamil vote they pressure Sri Lanka.

They cant have double standards on "War on Terror" just because of Tamils vote.
We have to make our point clear!!!

Dear Mr Obama,

Imagine the following scenario...

A bunch of second and third generation cuban-americans have decided that south florida wants to be a separate country with its own army, police and spanish speaking administation.In fact they want to be part of Cubeelam.

As there are Latinos both legal and illegal living in the following states, they want Georgia, Alabama Arkansas,Texas,Arizona and California too.
To achieve this they have bombed the rest of the country with suicide squads.Your strong work has cornered them in South Florida between Miami and Key west where they are holding the population under the gun.

The United Nations say you must negotiate. Thousands of hispanics in the Americas and Spain go beserk,go on hungerstrike and jump off bridges as their investment turns sour.Norway offers to be a middleman as oilexplration off the florida coast looks good.

What do you do ?

When you need a friend, Sri Lanka will back you up and show you the way.

Dear Mr Obama,

In fact as there are legal and illegals living in GA, AK, Tx and CA, they want that too. Suicide bombers have been unleashed on the rest of the country, but your hard work has pushed them back to Miami and onto KeyWest where they are holding the population at gunpoint.

Thousands of lations are taking to the streets with hunger strikes and jumps off bridges as their investment in a separate state turns sour.Norway offers to be a broker as there appears to be oil off the florida atlantic coast.

I think we are too much depressed about the cheese fire. Cheese fire is given for the piece lovers to bite. Genuine peace and cease fire will soon be delivered when SLDF end the most ruthless terror outfit.

Even if he wants MR will be unable to make a halt to the offensive. Momentum, that is called.

And I don't believe that there is so much pressure on GOSL. There had been pressure but the matter is not even raised in security council yet.

If there is a pressure that should be from USA for sure. Also there must be pressure that Indian elections would bring negative impact. But seriously these are minor compared to what they faced.

Can't that be a pussycat propa trap. The whole pressure->cheese fire story.

Hiranthe,
Thanks for the support man! Together we can do this.

I spend at least 30 min every day, going over important articles from Canadian, European and US newspapers, and I have a set of responses in a MS Word document. I just cut and paste.

Here is one of them:
"The ltte terrorist supporters, megalomaniacs, are on a desperate run to spread false rumors, to save the psychopathic terrorists from complete elimination. They are bribing, begging, crying, and most of all, lying to gain time to regroup the terrorists.

The ltte terrorists, who are holding their own people as a human shield, are killing their own who try to escape. They are shelling those who try to escape with artillery and blaming it on the Ari Lankan Army.

The UN Deputy General was invited by the Sri Lankan govt, and he saw for himself, the REAL situation: he appealed to the ltte to release the human shield, and to stop killing those who try to escape.

Canada and the World: It is time to see through these psychopathic terrorists and their brainwashed supporters. THE SEEDS OF TERRORISM ARE BEING SOWN IN YOUR COUNTRY, and future generations of Tamil children have effectively been brainwashed. The time is not too distant when lawlessness and terrorism will be common in Europe due to these people who have pretended ‘discrimination’ to come to the greener pastures of your countries, get your welfare and tax-money and to spread terrorism."

- Please do something like this - The Canadians and Europeans are getting sick of the peelam demonstrations (the peelamists have clogged up all toilets at businesses nearby), and the Canadians are really pissed because law-enforcement and emergency crews are spending enormous amount of tax-payers dollars to 'look after' these idiots.

Also, they know that the peelamists claimed a pretended 'discrimination' to come to their country and now are living on welfare, also from the tax-payers money. The Canadians must be made to realize that their tax money is actually going to support terrorism, and these peelamists are "sowing the seeds of terrorism" in Canada and the world.

The tide is turning on th epeelam false-propaganda machine: please do your part and write.

Many Thanks and Best Regards.

Go Sri Lanka!!!

From Daily Mirror....

"An LTTE sea infiltration bid had been thwarted by the Navy this morning off the coast of Mullaitivu, navy sources confirmed. According to reports two LTTE suicide boats had launched the attack, one boat had been destroyed and one captured.

Navy believes that at least 10 LTTE cadres were killed in the clash and the captured boat had been fitted with C4 explosives to carry out the suicide mission."
The 48 hour diplomacy effort ended without any visible results. No mass scale influx of civilians, etc. So, it is time to revert back to what got us here; a successful military campaign!

UN: Sri Lanka rebels trapping 100,000 civiliansApr 16 (AP) The U.N. humanitarian chief accused Tamil Tiger fighters of keeping 100,000 civilians trapped in a Sri Lankan war zone during a 48-hour cease-fire, which he criticized Wednesday as too short a time to deliver much-needed humanitarian aid. John Holmes urged a longer pause in hostilities to get the civilians out and avoid "a bloodbath on the beaches."


FMs say Tamil Tigers using 'human shields'Apr 16 (AFP) The British and French foreign ministers said Wednesday that Tamil Tiger rebels in Sri Lanka are using civilians as human shields, which was preventing them from leaving the conflict zone. In a joint statement issued in London, Foreign Secretary David Miliband and his French counterpart Bernard Kouchner urged the Sri Lankan government to declare a new ceasefire to allow aid in and civilians out

Indian general election beginsPatriots,

I think the GOSL is delaying the capture of the NFZ until the Indian Lok Sabha elections are over. This may be at the request of the Govt. of India.

Expect to see fireworks by the SLA soon after these elections end.

ExpressBuzz.comIANS
15 Apr 2009

NEW DELHI: Indians began voting Thursday morning to pick a new 545-seat Lok Sabha in the first phase of staggered elections widely expected to throw up a split verdict.

Polling centres opened at 7 a.m. in 124 constituencies across 15 states and two union territories amid tight security, Election Commission officials here said.

About 143 million of India's 714 million voters are eligible to exercise their franchise in the first of five rounds in 185,552 polling centres. A total of 1,715 candidates are in the fray.

Over 300,000 electronic voting machines are being used. Tens of thousands of election staff and security personnel have been deployed to conduct the electoral exercise -- the world's largest.

Kerala, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Chhattisgarh, Andaman and Nicobar Island and Lakshwadeep will see voting Thursday in all constituencies besides parts of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Manipur, Orissa and Jharkhand.

Simultaneous balloting began to elect state assemblies in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh.

The main parties in the fray are the Bharatiya Janata Party (102 seats), Congress (111), Bahujan Samaj Party (111), Communist Party of India-Marxist (23), Nationalist Congress Party (14) and Communist Party of India (15)

The millions of votes cast in the April-May elections will be counted May 16.

Our zero tolerance towards civilians who are trapped in NFZ is gone too far. I think it is good time now to forget about collateral damages and finished the job at hand as quickly as possible. Any further delay only will jeopardize our goal of achieving peace and harmony in SL.

Hi all,

Do you all agree that we should stop referring to the LTTE as 'TAMIL Tigers'?

This is a time when the Tamils should detach themselves from the LTTE. But, when we continue to refer to LTTE as 'Tamil Tigers', we keep pushing the innocent Tamils back into the pack.

What do you think?
I just wrote to a Canadian author requesting him to stop useing the term 'Tamil Tiger'.

President visits Kilinochchi

President Mahinda Rajapakse made a surprise visit to the once elusive de facto captial of the LTTE today. He had inspected the area and spoken to the troops, according to sources.

I think it is time we stopped listening to crocodile tears of the US other countries.

These country commit crimes against humanity in places all over the world on daily basis and do see them thinking of civilians??

We fighting a war against the most brutal terror group in history and not Mary Poppins!!

Most the people who are their, are in fact the MahaVira families, who supplied the cadres that have killed our forces for the last couple decades in the first place.

It is nice that our prez took pity on them but time for action and time clean up our country of these mindless bas*ards!!

There's a pretty well organized campaign largely driven by Canadian LTTE supporters, trying to get a voice on Oprah and make a last ditch attempt to save the terrorists in Sri Lanka.

• Please sign the below petition also to Oprah Winfrey to say NO to Tamil Tiger Rebels.

Thanks again for your support for the Sri Lankan cause.

We're back to business and Def LK confirms . Maybe Robert Blake is give a GOSL nanny to play with. So glad that we stand firm and do the right thing.

MR makes a drop in at Nochchi . Hope he calculates every risk of it. There will be many parties after his head.

Yet that disturbing news lingers on. Sometime back I DID support this idea. But the core reason why we need to kill him is that Pussycats are well and truly alive, not dead. The brain behind pussycats live abroad. All they want is Fatpig who will be their idol and link between them and Sri Lanka. If we destroy the pig, then they will have to find a new link, which is tough given current vibrations in Tamil politics. I still wonder whether this news is also a psy-op by those who want it to happen.

After doing so much to Afganistan, and with a military presence in teh country, Canada still can't take care of western standards within Afgan legal and HR framework. So much for those who think they can puppet control Sri Lanka. Solheim rightly said that there is nothing he can do now. Now it is time for protesters to go home and use their home garage as toilet.

Who's in charge of GOSL Press & PR in the West?Yet again, the LTTE's front organisations are dictating the media agenda in London and other Western bloc cities. They have been allowed to make the most outrageous claims of 'genocide' and civilian casualties.

The GOSL representatives in the UK are conspicuous by their absence on radio, TV and mainstream press (please correct me if I'm wrong).

We urgently need to get proven, articulate proponents of the GOSL's case. Professionals like Dayan Jayatillke, Mahinda Samarasinghe (who gave an excellent performance on BBC's HardTalk), Palitha Kohona and Rajiva Wijesinha, made available to instantly rebut LTTE propaganda.

Their calm manner will win over the ranting performances often seen from LTTE representatives.

I've said this before and I'll repeat it again. The gains made by our forces, paid for in lost lives and limbs are in danger of frittered away by a dismal performance of our representatives abroad. It is imperative that this is treated seriously and quickly.

As the LTTE loses its' military capability, it has switched its' struggle to the PR front.

MR, GR, SF, DP, WK, SS,etc. all going to kili is not at all a wise move.

IF shit can happen, it will. keeping as many leaders safe from harms way is the thing to do ALWAYS. safety cannot have a break.

MR MUST learn from RP, CBK, RG and JFK.

very interesting report. Bit different from the usual war casualty reports but nevertheless very good. I also read a very good article titled "Tamil Homeland versus Sinhalese Homeland". Have any of you read it. If so I would like to know your opinion on it. You can find it on www.CeylonToday.com

keep up the good work

Patriots,
LTTE f***ers are trying to get public opinion in the US turned against Srilankan Government via Opera Show.

www.oprahgiveusavoice.com

Oprahgiveusavoice.com We have 400,000 Sinhalese in USA and Only 100,000 tamils. We can
make it.

88% votes for Oprah to have the LTTE supporters on the show

only 12% voted NO.

PLEASE GET GOING AND VOTE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. SPREAD THE WORD
BEFORE THE LIES GO ON THE AIR.

People should go to Oprah's website: www.oprahgiveusavoice.com and
vote "NO" because already the Tiger sympathizers have 88% vote for YES
for giving this group a voice and only 12% for not giving them a voice.

Please be patient - sometimes the website is slow.

As long as prabhakaran does not have an escape route since he is evil and selfish he will use the poor civilians as a human shield to save his own life with a high cost to the civilians while preaching to others to give up theirs.

Therefore the SL Government taking into consideration the large number of civilians suffering due to the crossfire and also the fact that the SL Government is responsible for the welfare of all its citzens should let prabhakaran escape to whatever country so that this war will then be finally over for sri-lanka and also the civilians who are caught up then will be free.

Appearently such a plan is being discussed.

If the president is thinking on similar lines, i support him.

monkey said...

let this moron prabhakaran escape to a third country without letting him use the poor civilians as a human shield with a high cost to them.

It is the SL Government who will be blamed for the civilian suffering otherwise and by letting this selfish and evil guy prabhakaran escape to a third country for good, the war will finally be over for sri-lanka and also for the innocent civilians being caught up.

if the president is thinking along those lines, I support him.

It appears that Tamil Tigers can fool ALL of the people SOME of the time, but not even they can fool ALL the people ALL the time!

National Post editorial board: Sympathy for Tamils, but not TigersThe National Post, Canada
April 16, 2009

The ongoing Parliament Hill protests and hunger strikes by Tamil Canadians are meant to stir our lawmakers into action against Sri Lanka, whose government is waging a successful military campaign against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), better known as the Tamil Tigers. If anything, however, the protests have had the opposite effect: Just as radical Canadian Muslims attract disgust when they raise the flags of Hezbollah or Hamas, so too do Tamils who fly the flag the of the LTTE, a terrorist insurgency that once controlled much of Sri Lanka. What’s worse, the protesters have flown the LTTE flag alongside the Canadian flag — an insult to our own country.

As we have written several times before, we are not without sympathy for the cause of the Tamil people, many of whom have been treated as second-class citizens by the Sinhalese-dominated government in Colombo. Indeed, the Tamils would have had a rightful claim to the world’s sympathy — if the LTTE, which fights for an independent Tamil homeland, hadn’t itself adopted such inhumane tactics since its formation in the 1980s. The Tigers perfected the tactic of suicide bombing, deploying explosive-wrapped killers by the dozens even before the practice had caught on in the Arab world.

The LTTE has also press-ganged children as young as 10 into military service and, following the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, they cleared out orphanages for foot soldiers and interdicted relief supplies to feed their adult insurgents and fund terror campaign against the Sri Lankan government. The sight of this group’s flags flying in Canada is nothing short of revolting.
Canada is home to the largest expatriate Tamil community in the world. Despite the Conservative government’s decision to declare the LTTE a terrorist organization in 2006, many of the most prominent Tamil groups in Canada remain fronts for the Tigers. Much of the money for the LTTE’s terror campaign has been extorted from Tamil Canadians, who have faced harassment if they show insufficient enthusiasm for the Tigers. Family members back home in Sri Lanka have even been held hostage until Tamils here pay hefty donations.

The reason that Tiger supporters seem so desperate now is that, after nearly 17 months of bloody fighting, Sri Lankan troops have the few hundred remaining Tiger fighters pinned down inside a few square kilometres in northeast Sri Lanka — including, possibly, the group’s sociopathic leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran. The only thing preventing Sri Lankan troops from finishing off the Tigers is the presence of thousands of Tamil civilians, whom the Tigers are using as human shields.

Like Hamas in Gaza, cowardly LTTE fighters are hiding behind the women and children they claim to be protecting. (In fact, the Tigers are actually killing civilians who try to flee the combat area — something even Hamas never did on a large scale during the Gaza combat.) The Tigers’ goal appears to be saving itself — and we would not be surprised if Pirapaharan staged his own massacre of Tamils as a means to discredit Colombo and force a ceasefire that allowed him to escape.

The Ottawa protesters — and others in Sydney, Australia — insist the Colombo government is readying a “genocide” against Tamils. Many journalists are even getting e-mails from Tiger supporters claiming that the Sri Lankan army is preparing to use chemical weapons.

This is preposterous: If government troops truly wanted to stage a genocide, they could have done so weeks ago. The only reason that the siege has drawn out this long is that Sri Lanka’s army wishes to avoid unnecessary slaughter. Indeed, the Tamils who have managed to escape the Tiger area report being treated better by Sri Lankan troops than they were by the LTTE.

If the Tiger supporters in Ottawa truly had the best interests of innocent Tamils at heart, they would be pleading with the Tigers themselves to release their human shields, not declaring their undying support for a terror organization.

Our advice to the Ottawa hunger strikers is: Eat up. To the extent anyone is listening to your message, it only serves to disgrace your members.

When the armed forces wipe out all the terrorists from our motherland, then only the real war starts. A war that will help all the civilians to get back into their normal day to day life, a war that will eliminate the "war mentality" from the civilians who were affected from this 25year old catastrophy. Mind you, as long political... Read More parties filled with extremists views such as Jathika hela Urumaya....we the Sri Lankans will never see the light at the end of the tunnel. its the reality. J.H.U is trying to separate all the races and create racials conflicts. Isn't that the reason why one of the MPs in the said party passed that so called "sound pollution bill". He bought it against the Muslim people, fellow brothers of our mother land. What was the final result, one of our prestigious monks had to stay in Welikada Prison. Jathika Hela Urumaya is pulling Sri Lanka into a ditch that will never let us climb through. The reason why I used the word "pulling" because J.H.U is already in a ditch.
