Tough days for LTTE 'middle-management' contd.

As reported by us earlier, the LTTE's 'middle management' has suffered irreparable losses during the last few days of fighting. The identity of the dead tiger leaders are coming to light after a Military Intelligence team was sent to the coconut grove where they breathed their last breath.

So far they have identified the remains of Theepan, Nagesh, Vithusha, Thurga, Gadabi, Manivannan, Thamilenthi (Thamilselvan's deputy and deputy political wing head) and host of others including Swarnam's two deputies Chithrangan and Adithyan who fought against the 59 in the recent past.

The entire brood of tiger leaders got trapped after the Special Forces and Commandos bypassed their defenses and cut them off at the rear. The operation was launched by a combined 53, 58, and Task Force 8 team 3 days ago when they crept into LTTE areas like two rods on either flank. The two infiltrations joined-up at the rear of the LTTE defence right upto the NFZ and boxed-in the Tigers.

The three Divisions were unaware of a grand plan by the LTTE to break into the Army FDL, which coincidentally was to be launched on the same day. The three Divisions made a smart move when, instead of clearing the box from south to north, started from north to south. It was then that they realized that over 600 LTTE are trapped inside the area and that they had even moved heavy artillery including 130mm into the narrow patch of coconut trees.

As the resistance was high, the three Divisions called in the Special Forces and 2 Commandos who took over the clearing operation and searched and destroyed all LTTE units. By last evening, the operations was completed and the total bodycount stood at 421 LTTE cadres killed. What happened to a large group of others cannot be revealed now.

The Army has also planned a daring rescue operation into the NFZ, which will commence within the next two days, sources confirmed to DefenceWire. The nature of the operation, we have been told, is unlike anything any military has launched to date.

Personal documents including Prabakaran's birth certificate recovered

(Lanka-e-News, April 05, 2009, 4.45 PM) State media says that Army recovered in a search operation this afternoon some very important documents of the LTTE leader and his family from a place where Prabakaran was hiding till the last moment.

The personal belongings of the Tiger leader included Prabakaran's and his son Charles Anthony's birth certificates, the G.C.E. ordinary Level and Advanced level result sheets of Charles Anthony and Prabakan�s daughter Dwarka. Documents related to the university where Dwarka is studying now have also been recovered.
Following the defeat at Puthukudirippu, LTTE leaders have fled to the no-fire zone. They have taken a large cache of explosives to the no-fire zone causing chaos among civilians there. State media says that the Army is observing the situation there.

Army further says that the LTTE has positioned three artillery guns in the no-fire zone

DefenceWire,

It is imperative to publish photos of these dead terrorist leaders somewhere, not GOSL sites. The LTTE terrorist supporters around the world should be given a chance to come to terms that their favorite terrorists are no more. I am sure that you get the general idea of what I say here.

Sanjeeva said...

Im really curious to know what exactly happened to the rest of the 180 LTTE cadres from the so called 600 cadres boxed in by the SL forces, did they surrender..?

What is the LTTE's remaining 'big heads' trying to do without giving in to a total surrender, are they planing a mass suicide within NFZ...

Defencewire said...

onecountry,

Since CNN has claimed it, we will not deny it, except refrain from making any further comments in that connection for the time being.

Sam Perera said...

onecountry,

The surrender story in CNN is not exactly true. From what I heard, some tried to blow them pretending to be surrendering.

Rajan said...

I have attempted to post this in Puligal, but as the case with LTTE and their supporters, dissenting voices among fellow Tamils are not allowed and I am shut out from the site hence I am compelled to post my opinions in blogs run by singhalas as the world need to know that Tamils and LTTE barbarians (and their supporters) are not one & the same.
Main thrust of what I’ve written is as follows:
“In recent times LTTE have shown no strategic direction at all and what we witness today are logical consequences of its own actions. If LTTE has an iota of common sense left, they would have announced an unconditional surrender by now. (I argued earlier (pulgal) that they should have done this few months ago as it would have ensured that the surrender takes place with some sort of strategic bargaining power left with the LTTE. Now the position is much worse, still its better to surrender and try to minimize losses).
If LTTE is adamant on fighting to the end, they do have a great moral responsibility to let the civilians go, as taking cover behind civilians is not ‘warrior’ like at all even though some diaspora brothers seem to think so.
Failure to release civilians at least at this last moment will further reveal the true colors of LTTE to the whole world (which is not a bad thing to happen), but unfortunately the human (civilian) cost to it would be too high to bear.
Both LTTE and sections of the diaspora have been taking an ‘all or nothing’ attitude over the years, and since it’s not going to be ‘all’ for sure what they will end up with is ‘nothing’. (In that sense one might say they got their wish.)
Now the brainwashed sections of the diaspora can react by hurling insults at people like me, denying the recent debacles, and predicting an economic collapse which will guarantee Eelam by default. In fact I am confident all three will be used simultaneously. But the truth of the matter is these nonsensical arguments will not change the ground realities at all.
High time to Tamils to think beyond LTTE.

Defencewire said...

Sam,

There was definitely a surrender. A large team got trapped inside for 3 days without reinforcements, food, ammunition and medicine. We will detail this at the appropriate time.

The Punisher said...

ok so it was a surrender a war, these people need to be sent in for rehab immediately, as there surrender was because they had there backs on the wall, anyway if both an SLA and LTTE invasion was happening, with such an LTTE battle streghnth I suspect that our forces did sustain some sort of casualties, also to be analyzed is the fact that these escapees didnt give up till the 3 day mark, meaning they couldnt have been freshers been recruited, but with the LTTE for sum time, meaning the remaining cadres are freshers and a handfull of really to rung cadres, time up for potu to get smart or end up with the rest.. everyone knows he gave Thamilchelvans position

according to LTTE,

sla attempt at advancing into ptk has resulted in 1412 sla killed and 6,000+ seriously injured. the attempts have also resulted in the sla being beaten back by about 8 km from south of ptk

Puffy said...

I'd say, this.has to be the WORST debacle suffered by the ltte after the famous Welioya debacle where they lost close to 400+ cadres in just few hours of fighting, thanks to late M.G. Janaka Perera.
However, considering the circumstances, this PTK debacle seems to be the "Killer Blow" to the ltte, all thanks to our great General, Sarath Fonseka!!!
With such a great loss, Im seriously wondering how they hope to hold on to the NFZ any further?
I believe that the SPECIAL FORCES are the most suited to carry out the rescue mission because they are capable of
"Godin, Diyen saha Guwanin satanata awatheerna wee" attacking the enemy.

1). Who left in the LTTE to respond like that?

2). IF SLA lost 1400, then was it your mother killed Theepan?

Its actually 1413. You missed one.

It seems the eelam dream will be cintinued only in otherparts of the world except sri lanka. All what the tamils in Sri Lanka wants is a peacefull life, thats their aspiration.

Patriots,

Our organizing committee members are receiving numerous death threat calls from LTTP coolies. Victoria police seems really inefficient.

They are trying to provoke so hard and start a fight. So they can run their bloody propaganda campaign. This is absolute pathetic situation.

So far they broke four Sinhalese shops.

Behalf of the organizing committee I am only asking you guys not to get in to any trouble. Any suspicious incidents please inform Victorian Police and let them handle the situation.

Thanks and take care!

Moshe Dyan said...

didn't i say it is going to be the GRAND harvesting time!!!

fantastic SLDFs.

"surrender" does NOT NECESSARILY guarantee the safety of terrorists. what actually happened to the 13 terrorists in the east and other similar events MUST guide the fate of MOST surrendees. otherwise "surrender" will be taken as a joke.

"What happened to a large group of others cannot be revealed now." its best their numbers are not revealed exactly.

MOST surrendees when a LARGE GROUP surenders are infiltrators.

Moshe Dyan said...

again tamilnet is avoiding my challenge.

"The area littered with mangled bodies, torn limbs, and blood soaked soil appears more horrific than what one finds inside a butchers shop," a lady medical staff working out of a school-building converted into the temporary primary surgical care centre at Puthumaaththa'lan, told TamilNet Sunday" - tn

where the fcuking hell are those pictures????

tn has published more gruesome pix b4. so why not publish them without tampering with the LOCATION of the attack???

it is bcos the location of the attack was a BIG tiger military complex!!

i renew my challenge to tamilnet. show the LOCATION of the "carnage" when "civilian" casualties are reported.

BTW if an area is "decorated" with the remains of LTTE terrorists and their other militias, that is a reason to celebrate!!

TropicalStorm said...

MULLAITTIVU: Five more LTTE leaders were among the senior terrorists killed during confrontations in PUTHUKKUDIYIRUPPU north area Sunday (5).

Leader of LTTE’s RADHA Regiment SEELAMBARASAN, his deputy ANBU, the terrorist in charge of mortar section GOPAL, the terrorist in charge of mines section ASMI and a leader of LTTE’s SODIA Regiment MOHANA were also confirmed killed in the gun battles.

Fucking uneducated super intelligent die ass poras ltte mfs'. Who said they migrated to those contries in legitimate way. Most of these mfs' are asylem seeker and ltte smuggled them as slaves to serve them. Machan they now fucking desperate.Knowing once war is over they have to pack their bags and come back to wanni.Man that is not a good thing to dream about.So they don't want peace in SL.

Sam Perera said...

Gutikewa,


Keep it cool and professional as you plan, let the Victoria police handle the situation per Australian laws. It is very likely that we will get a chance to get back these elements later on in a very different way. We need to make sure that these people are identified properly for future purposes.

I like you stile man.. prick!

If all Tamils think like you do, no two words that there will be no single Tamil person left after couple of years in Sri Lanka. You must be one of the Die-Ass-Poras.. aren't you? dickheads! Thanks to 1983, You guys are living in western countries. You guys planned all these things to make Sri Lanka a Tamil only state.

You remember this, There have been so many idiotic attempts in the history. This is history repeating.

Once the conventional war is over this conflict may go in to a "cold war/insurgency" phrase.

To prevent this ,we need to go after the LTTE's money trail.Finding, following, and freezing LTTE finances should be the next phrase of activity.

Totally agree with you mate. Only thing is still we haven't got sufficient evidence to produce to Victorian police. They are calling through private numbers, so we can't get the number, so no evidence. Without proper evidence there is nothing much Victoria police can do.

They are like pissu ballo. Don't know what to do. I think only reason why they have organized a car parade because they don't have enough people support, with the car parade you can make it big. I think they were furious to see the crowd gathered in our protest.

but I am not going to buy this story until Peter Ponnayar confirms with his whore sister in Wanni about death of Theepan and rest of the clowns. Regarding photos in DLK, again I am waiting for clown editor of LTTP to count and confirm how many bodies and T56 and 130mm ect in the pictures and also time and date stamp correct.

DW,

Now that
1) some civilians on their own
2) wounded LTTE carder as Civilians on their own
3) wounded LTTE carder as Civilians sent by LTTE leaders
4) some of the LTTE carder who think are brainy
5) some of the LTTE carder sent by LTTE leaders

have already come out of NFZ and need less area.

On these grounds, can’t the SLDF reduce the NFZ area gradually so that LTTE have to concentrate in the non-NFZ to defend?

Video News Report by Saman Kumara Ramawikrama Reveals NFZ Civilian Yearning for Complete Destruction of the LTTE

Video

Patriots,

In this news report SKR says that since the complete capture of PTK-East, the influx of escaping civilians has increased from 500/day to around 2000 in 5 hrs.

The escaping civilians are completely disenchanted with the LTTE and its leadership for atrocities committed against them. News has gotten to them that the SLA will protect them, and that they have nothing to fear except from the LTTE cadre. They are appealing to MR to complete the destruction of their torturers, and to restore to them the freedoms the people of the East are enjoying now.

I firmly believe that this report accurately reflects the feelings of these people, and that it is not merely GOSL propaganda.

Protecting the lives of these hostages and restoring their inalienable right to life, freedom and prosperity, will go a long way to erasing all the lies that Tamil separatists have been preaching over the last three decades, and set the stage for achieving the single Sri Lankan identity many of us espouse here.

The rescuing of these hapless hostages is truly a Meritorious Pinkama of the highest order.

Ape' Rana Viru Du Puthunta Nivan Sapa Labewa!

I was there at the “Peace Rally” and I saw what happened... But the Diaspora LTTE supporters made the incident totally upside down and trying to tarnish the image of Sinhalese live in Melbourne. It was LTTE supporters made the first move and attacked a student when he is leaving the rally, on the way to train station.

Furthermore, it was a proactive move by the LTTE supporters to use a motor car parade in front of the crowd. We (Lankans) never did any proactive things against LTTE supporters when they were rallying for LTTE.

This day, I experienced the so called “PROPAGANDA” mechanism of LTTE Supporters for the first time personally... This is how they make the TRUTH upside down and use it to their advantage in the past...

India breaks another LTTE weapon ring

India has broken yet another Tamil Tiger ring that sought to smuggle war material to the rebels, arresting four men including a British national of Sri Lankan origin in Chennai.Acting on results of painstaking sleuthing, the four were formally detained Friday from the southern Chennai suburb of Thiruvanmaiyur. They included a member of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).It is the first crackdown on the LTTE this year in Tamil Nadu, which is separated from Sri Lanka by a strip of sea and where political passions are running high due to the war against the Tigers in the island that has reached a decisive stage.Informed sources said the LTTE activist was known only as Sahanthan. He belonged to Mullaitivu in Sri Lanka's north - where the LTTE is waging a last-ditch battle to save itself from annihilation - and had arrived in India about a year ago.His mission was to coordinate activities aimed at supplying the LTTE war material, the sources told IANS. He travelled extensively in Tamil Nadu for this purpose.Arrested with him was British national Jayanathan, who flew into Tamil Nadu recently and who reportedly has had links with the LTTE in the past.The other two arrested men were identified simply as Babu of Rameswaram and Guhan of Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu. Both are Indians and said to be linked to the Vidhuthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK), a pro-LTTE group in Tamil Nadu that is now allied to Tamil Nadu's ruling DMK.Seized from them were several satellite telephones, global positioning system (GPS), night vision devices as well as medicines that had been neatly packed in crates.Much of the goods had been bought abroad, underlining that Tamil Nadu seemed to be a transit point for war material that a bruised LTTE desperately needs to battle the relentless military advance, the sources said.It is clear from Friday's seizures that the LTTE continues to use Tamil Nadu to source its war needs and that some consignments may have got past the Indian security agencies.The involvement in the smuggling ring of a Briton of Sri Lankan origin reveals that the Tigers are drawing upon the Tamil diaspora to further their interests.The latest attempt to smuggle communication equipment, night vision glasses and medicines also shows the Tigers have no plans of giving up their fight against the military, the sources said.The last major arrest of LTTE suspects in Tamil Nadu took place in December 2008 when the police swooped on Amir Antony Paranthaman. The arrest led to the seizure of satellite telephones and GPS system sent from Switzerland.The police also then seized 500 kg of ammonium nitrate, a fertiliser component used to make explosives.Like the LTTE guerrilla arrested Friday, Paranthaman had come to Tamil Nadu some months previously with a singular mission - keep the Tigers supplied with whatever it needs to keep fighting.

Chinthana4Lions said...

Colombo, 06 April, (Asiantribune.com): The LTTE cadres now left are restricted to Leader Velupillai Prabhakaran and under one hundred others who are trapped in the safe zone, Military spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara told Asian Tribune.

So there is max 100 lttp dogs in NFZ now? Im bit puzzled now, I dont think LTTP dogs are that low numbered there, Probably another 300 to 400 maybe ?

"Can someone explain why (how come) SLDF hit the grand jackpot; 600+ carders in one single place? why they flock together?"

As it says, they were preparing for a large assault. So LTTE had gathered a large force in that area for this assault.

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Eelam war V is on inception,

It would be totally managed from overseas via Satellite and Mobile phones. There are nearly 2000 surviving LTTE cadres and the objective is to rally them into small teams (living among civilians or scattered in jungles) coordinated by virtual heads who will be living civilian lives or based overseas.

The surviving 2000 cadres include, those who are currently in prisons, those who have already surrendered to the Army, those who are living in the Refugee Camps, those who are still scattered in jungles, and those who posed as civilians who live in the currently normalised areas i.e Vavunia, Jaffna, Mannar, Trinco, Batti, Ampara, Tea Estates etc.

Their first objective would be to get all the LTTE prisoners released from the prisons in the pre-text of "War is Over!". Then they will group them and equip them with communications and GPS equipment. Their weapons (mainly explosives, 9mm Hand Guns, Claymore Bombs etc) would be hidden in safe locations. They will keep hitting and running making civil administration a nightmare. LTTE international military arm will engage in coordinating all the LTTE military operations happening in SL remotely (it happens to a large extent now too).

On the other front, LTTE will use their front organisations, NGOs, and various community shackles set-up overseas to do arms twisting, lobbying, campaigns, etc etc to pressure their host country governments, international organisations such as the UN, EU etc and pressure the Sri Lankan government.

In Sri Lanka, there would be a campaign for a "Federal Solution", 13th Amendment etc, which is the another route to Eelam.

Even if Prabhakaran was killed, the curse would not be over. It has been in the works to go for a long time. Therefore, the peace-loving Sri Lankan patriots should be extremely vigilant and be on guard to further protect the country from this cancer. The tentacles of the cancer is everywhere, so just because you removed the tumor, it would not go away. GOSL has to be extremely mindful and brave for the next 100 years and beyond!

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Kings,

We trapped 400+ cadres into small area by superb military maneuver. LTTE never expected that we would do that by cutting off the NFZ from remaining PTK. These LTTE gang always planned to withdraw into the NFZ if the conditions were unbearable. Cutting them off at the neck (link from NFZ to PTK) and destroying every reinforcement came from NFZ led to destroy their every hope.

It is the sheer brilliance of military planners that we hit this jackpot headed by SF and Shavendra Silva. Much of the credit should go to soon to be Maj. Gen Shavendra Silva and his team.

What has happened to the Army.lk, page cannot be found error for days?

Moshe Dyan said...

patriots,

this is very important. most of us are actually unaware of these DETAILS. it is good to know.

from defence.lk by gomin dayasiri (a lawyer i think).

click here

a summary

possible action against SL and how they fail

action #1.

However to the advantage Sri Lanka holds unlike in the ongoing Gaza episode, there is no punitive blockade. On the contrary the civilians crossing the line have been welcomed with secured safe passages; the civilians are fleeing from terror and the LTTE are indulging in cruel preventing measures to build a soul shield for their own defence. There is no possibility of raising the "shock and awe" doctrine because the State has been providing food medicine fuel and other provision to civilians for years in LTTE controlled areas at state expense including those presently in the NFZ and beckoning them to cross. Medical facilities are provided even to injured of the LTTE.

These humanitarian acts of wisdom comprehensively eliminate the attraction of Articles 33 and 55 of the Fourth Geneva Convention relating to the treatment of a civilian population and Sri Lanka emerges triumphantly against charges for possible violation of such humanitarian laws.

PUT IT SIMPLY - IRRELEVANT


action #2.

Diaspora cannot turn to the International Court of Crime since neither Sri Lanka nor the LTTE are affiliated to its jurisdiction. NGO pressed hard for Sri Lanka to become a member trying to lobby the garment sector with a tariff exception cherry but the President stood firm notwithstanding pressure brought by interested parties from within the Cabinet.

PUT IT SIMPLY – NO JURISDICTION


action #3.

The establishment of ad hoc international criminal tribunals as in Serbia and Rwanda by the UN Security Council is out of reach because of support received by Sri Lanka from within the UN Security Council and the veto power of China and Russia. The support extended by Asian giants China and Japan at critical times is of much value.

PUT IT SIMPLY - IMPOSSIBLE


action #4.

It is possible in view of ground work by the NGO community to invoke, without justification, the claims of universal jurisdiction inherent in national municipal courts on vague allegations of war crimes. This has been resorted to in Britain, Spain, US, France, Germany and Belgium. There is such legislation presently in 12 countries.

The dictator of Chile, Pinochet, was indicted in a Spanish High Court and detained in Britain. The Law Lords of UK upheld the right to extradite, but instead he returned to Chile on the ground of unfitness to face trial, due to extreme illness. Spain has also indicted several Israeli military officers on human rights violations, but they never marked an appearance.

German courts refused to press charges against Donald Rumsfield on torture charges despite strong evidentiary basis and non prosecution by the US authorities. These are opportunistic ventures to attract high profile publicity and as a deterrent of possible claims of detention and prosecution to inhibit travel plans of military personnel.

This is a most unlikely procedure as extradition cannot be sought by governments as the LTTE is a universally acknowledged terrorist organisation holding the civilians against their will in NFZ and preventing their departure by cruel methods for their own survival.

This is still more difficult as the voice of responsibility have called upon the LTTE to free the civilians. In a criminal jurisdiction there is no upper guardian.

PUT IT SIMPLY – SO WHO CARES? NOTHING HAPPENS ANYWAY


action #5.


The final opportunity could be convening a non governmental civil society tribunal with symbolic legal authority. Bertrand Russel took the lead to establish the Russel Tribunal on the Viet Nam War. The Permanent Peoples Tribunal based in Rome has organised inquiries on 20 international topics. The unofficial World Tribunal on Iraq held in Istanbul under the chairmanship of Indian novelist Arundhathi Roy issued a Declaration of Conscience condemning the US and Britain.

Therefore Diaspora which funded the LTTE may fund a sponsored after dinner theatre presentation of a soap box opera named 'Crimes against Humanity' as a requiem for the many Tamils killed by the LTTE? At most it would be a pantomime, at the least a vaudeville in style of the Wild West.

This war will not end very soon. Which is good in a way. SL cannot wipe their hands and say terrorism is over. We have to grow stronger living under this threat. Like Israel we're forced to develop.

After the end of ground battle, the war will be fought in following platforms.

- Hit-and-run terror war
- War against logistic supply
- Cyber-war
- Constant pulling of the leg by diaspora
- Gangster attacks in first world cities
- International Mafia of organized crimes
- Attempts to fund and hijack another tamil movement to wage war against us
- Air threat??

GOSL/SLDF will have to think of;

- Surveillance and Vigilance. A strong fleet of UAV.
- Spy satellites??
- Strong anti-terrorist methods [such as white vans]
- Maintain a coast guard department [to stop smuggling]
- Radar protection [full]
- Local arms industry
- Strong intelligence attached to foreign consulates
- Legal proceedings against pussycat front runners in diaspora/exile
- Powerful information task force, most importantly in cyber domain
- Strong laws to banish separatism
- Strong laws to uphold equality
- Devolution of administration on regional basis

Scum of Sri Lanka (Jaathiye Paahara Ballo)

Highlight of the day

Rauf Hakeem.

This scummy riding on the vote of the Muslims Sri Lankans aligned himself with LTTE. When LTTE expelled peaceful citizens from Muththur, he did not say a word. However, he blamed SLA for disturbing peace when we took Muththur back and helped our Muslim brothers go back to their homes. Having lost his terrorist overlords now he wants to ridicule the greatest warrior of our time, General Sarath Fonseka. We are deeply saddened that we don't have outstanding warriors Col. Fazly Lafir and Lt. Col. Thuan Muthalif among us today to see the results of their heroic patriotism. LTTE terrorist lackeys like Rauf Hakeem is an insult to our great heroes Lafir and Muthalif. It is the time to put this anti Sri Lankan monkey in to the garbage bins of history by voting him out.

UNBELIEVABLE: Not even LTTE Activists want VAIKO Now!

Live by the Sword; Die by the Sword!

Vaiko shouted down

CHENNAI: Train number 6128 Guruvayur Express came into Chennai Egmore station at 8.50pm carrying two compartment loads of insults for MDMK chief Vaiko, proving once more that more than any issue the Sri Lankan Tamils issue will continue to be the key plank in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

A group of around 100 students from various colleges spreading awareness about the Sri Lankan issue, as part of an unique campaign conducted by train, and protesting against the arrests of film director Seeman, Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam chief Kolathur Mani and MDMK leader Nanjil Sampath, came to Chennai by Guruvayur Express after starting from Tirunelveli this morning.

MDMK chief Vaiko went to the station to receive them, where he was joined by traders union leader Vellaiyan and Thyagu of the Tamil Nationalist Free dom Movement.

While Vaiko was trying to speak to the students who disembarked from the train, they started shouting slogans asking him to leave.

“Politician leave, vote-picker leave,” arose slogans as students’ temper rose.

According to them, the opportunistic politics pursued by politicians was responsible for the current state of affairs in Sri Lanka, hence they were not needed for any movement to save Eelam Tamils.

Vaiko tried to calm down students, saying “Please listen to me for five minutes. I have not come here for your votes.

I have come to express my support to your struggle.” The students were seething by now and refused to listen.

A visibly shaken Vaiko further pleaded his credentials, saying “I have been to Sri Lanka. I have gone to jail for tending to 34 wounded LTTE men for a year. I have also been through your age and I understand.” The students simply asked him to leave and continued shouting slogans.

As the situation was getting out of hand, the police asked Vaiko to leave.

Students of colleges, including law colleges from different districts, participated in the campai gn. Vellaiyan and Thyagu later addressed the students at the station.

Earlier in the day, students boarded the Guruvayur Express at 7.45 am. The fact that the train stops at 17 stations before reached Chennai, was factored into the novel awareness programme.

The students disembarked at each station and raised slogans to garner support for “Tamil Eelam” before continuing their journey. Before boarding the train at Tirunelveli, they raised pro- LTTE slogans, which was objected to by SP (Railways) Chinnasamy, resulting in an argument with the police.

If any of you need real entertainment go & see comments to Badris' posts on Puligal. You can see how pathetic the diaspora LTTP supporters are after the great vicotry by our brave forces. Poor Badri has been reduced to exposing and analysing body parts of his own precious LTTP boys!
If you wanna have more fun while reading them remind yourselves of those loosers claims of re-claiming Nachchikuda, massive counter-attacks etc.

This Defence.lk Editorial Says it All

Driven to their death in vain
April 06, 2009


For those mislead youth who suffered death to save the lives of cowards

They were brutal. They were trained from their childhood to hate, murder and to believe whatever said by their leader as the ultimate truth. They had started their bloody careers in the LTTE as its "baby killers". When they were lead to commit village massacres, they began with throwing infants to wells and drowned them, they next smashed babies on tree trunks while their mothers watched in horror and grief, they ripped open the wombs of pregnant mothers, clubbed and chopped women and the unborn to death without the least ruffle . Grown into the teens they were sent to the battlefield to fight with the Armed forces. Those who survived won favours of their seniors to rise up in the ranks and became "leaders", "experts", "special leaders", etc in the terror outfit.

They were well honed terrorists. But, they were different from those who robbed their childhood; from those who financed the outfit that destroyed their lives and those who have made their sufferings a lucrative business. They were different because they died for the cause that they truly believed in. We refer to those middle-level terrorist leaders killed in action in Puthukkudiyiruppu.

They were different from their leader, V. Prabhakaran, a megalomaniac, who treats Sri Lankan Tamils as serfs in his personal fiefdom. They believed Prabhakaran when he called himself the "Sun God" and carried out mindless crimes as ordered by him. They never questioned his leadership though he always chose to hide in the background, using the cover of women and children. They never suspected him to be suffering from necrophilia though they saw his ghastly face lighted up every time he sees a dead body. They never knew that they died for a coward and psychopath who live an evil dream.

They were different form Pottu Amman, the back stabbing master and the tale carrying expert of the LTTE. They never suspected his so-claimed expertise in intelligence operations, though they saw him killing hundreds of LTTE cadres, including some of its founding members, just to clear his path to success in terror. They saw him exploit the mentally weak leadership, misappropriating funds, making profits, distancing the outfit from the people and creating a reign of terror. They were too late when they realised that they had been following the orders of a mean spirited coward who knew nothing about battle but was overly obsessed with grabbing the leadership of the outfit after its dying leader.

They were different from, Swarnam, Bhanu, Soosai, and Nadesan who called themselves the ruling elite of the LTTE. They never questioned their extravagant lives, scandalous behaviour, and obvious cowardice. They planned their battles and fought fiercely for the cause they believed in, leaving the credit, praise and profit to their so-called ruling elites

They were different from the so-called "Tamil Diaspora" who spend luxurious lives in western countries and whose battle is limited to the Internet. They knew that the war they were fighting was just like a cricket match to the so-called "Diaspora Tamils". But they continued to do so as they knew that they have to keep the image of a false "Diaspora" entertained to get the much needed funds for the cause they were made to believe in. Like so many others they swallowed without question that there is a Tamil Diaspora out there, scattered throughout the world, waiting to return to a lost homeland. They did not know that hardly any of those who claimed to be or were described as the "Diaspora" would ever want to rub shoulders with them anywhere on earth.

They were different form the NGO lot who made a lucrative business from the sufferings of others. They did not know that there is a group of contemptible people who receive great salaries, enjoy routine tours to Western countries (with shopping and other delights, too), and receive international awards allegedly for fighting for media rights, human rights ,etc., covering up the violence they champion and encourage in the name of liberation. They knew not that this group never wanted them to realise their cause nor to ever stop fighting. Hardly did they know anything of the existence of Deshapriayas, Imalkas, Pakiasothies, Wickramabahus, Haththotuwas, etc who make their living by the continued and sustained sufferings of the others.

They were different from the politicians who would instigate communal hatred to grab power or tell the most abominable lies against their own country just to get some media attention, and other rewards. They never knew that it was because of such politicians that they had to fight against their own country, their own people.

The men and women in the professional arms of the security forces value honour more than anything else. They fight for the cause they believe in and seek honour by contributing towards its realisation. This is the reason that the armed forces personnel are trained to respect the fallen enemy. We do not wish to insult Theepan, Vidusha, Durga, Gadhapi, Gopith, Nagesh, and the rest who died in the recent fighting. Indeed, they were the cream of the LTTE fighting cadre. It is a shame that they had to die for the wrong cause. They fought for the destruction of their own motherland and their own nation. Their deaths represent the end of the brutal terrorist outfit that devoured some 75,000 lives of Sri Lankan citizens, the lives of their own brethren. But, the mean spirited that mislead them, still desire more deaths, and continued bloodshed in this country. We dedicate this editorial to all Sri Lankans who fully realise the diverse forces that by misleading and misguiding the flower of our youth, brought death and destruction to our country, and are now determined to say - Never Again.

Q&A - Civilian struggles in Vanni


Around 80, 000 families, more than 200, 00 people, all of them Tamils are temporarily settled in the Sri Lankan government declared “Safe-Zone”, a half-a-mile wide strip of sandy beach stretching less than ten miles in length.


Atrocities taking place in this zone have gone unreported in the international press, thanks to a blanket ban imposed on aid workers and journalist by the Sinhala state. Only the Tamil media, led by the English language website TamilNet.com, has dared to defy official orders.


Here we provide details in short Q&A format



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who declared the “Safe-Zone”?


Unilateral declaration by the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL).


Is the region appropriate for such large number of people?


No. Previously home to only a handful of fishing hamlets, it has no infrastructure.


Water and Sanitation?


Number of toilets and wells were in single digit.


Could civilians have refused to move into the area?


No. Everyone outside the zone were declared “enemy combatants” by the Sinhala sate.


Did anyone stay out?


International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) operated the PTK Hospital. It was repeatedly shelled. Sri Lanka’s defence secretary Gothabaya Rajapaksa, told Britain’s Sky News that the hospital was a “legitimate target” as it was operating outside of the government declared zone.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who is looking after the civilians?


Tamils Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO) and a number of local charities are attending to daily needs. Tamileelam Administrative Service (TAS) has deployed unarmed cadres to help with construction of temporary shelters.


How about international aid agencies?


None. All have been banned by the GoSL.


Even the UNHCR?


Yes, even the UNHCR. The “Safe-Zone” is the only part of the world with high number of displaced civilians unattended by UNHCR.


Has LTTE blocked aid agencies or UN?


No. LTTE has written several letters to all prominent aid agencies and UN, even pleading with them not to abandon the Tamil people.


How about Safety?


UNHCR and a number of international aid organisations are present in Afghanistan, Iraq and Sudan, where they are declared targets.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What are the main problems faced by the civilians?


Artillery attacks and air raids; shortage of food and medicine; and lack of shelter.


What is being done about it?


Attacks by the Sri Lankan military are ongoing. Nothing can be done about it other that defeating them on the battle front, or exerting international pressure to stop the shelling.


Food, medicine and shelter?


TAS is building small shelters using Palmyra leaves. All shelter material are banned by the GoSL. WFP is delivering rice, dhal and some medicine by ship, but nowhere near enough for the number of people in the area.


How about the shortfall in food and medicine?


LTTE’s Sea Tigers have managed to “smuggle” small supplies of essential items. Rice porridge ‘kanchie’ is given twice daily to all adults. A protein rich version of it, ‘pyintham-kanchie’, is given to children. Families with babies under a year-old are given milk powder.


No food shortage then?


Minimal food is “smuggled” to prevent death by starvation. People have not ate vegetables for months. Vitamin deficiency diseases may become more common.


Why don’t Sea Tigers transport more?


They are having to work under great difficulties. Both Indian and Sri Lankan navies have increased patrols. Tamil Nadu police is actively following individuals purchasing large quantities of food or medicine.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are there civilian casualties in the “Safe-Zone”?


Yes. Around 100 people are killed and 200 are injured every day.


Why?


GoSL wants force them out of LTTE administered areas. It hopes to limit choices to death and moving out.


What happens to injured people?


They are taken to two makeshift medical facilities in the zone. Most minor injuries become major complication because of shortage of essential medicine. Serious cases are transported by the ICRC to Trincomalee.


Does the LTTE have positions inside the “Safe-Zone”?


No. If it did, they would have been filmed by UAVs. Defence Ministry releases detailed videos from outside the zone. Same would have been done if there were positions inside. LTTE has requested international monitors to visit the zone to verify.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is the LTTE holding civilians by force as “human shield”?


No. Given the ratio of civilians to cadres, that would be a physical impossibility.


How about civilians who say they were held by force?


People in Sinhala army detention camps and militarised hospitals are limited in what they can say. Taking their words without context is the height of naivete.


Why are some media quoting them then?


As it suits their agenda. Readers should put themselves in the shoes of the civilians.


Why would UN make that claim as well?


UN should send monitors into the region. With no presence in the “Safe-Zone” UN has no credible way of assessing people’s wishes. UN appears to want to do something. But, it has been banned from the region by the GoSL. Only thing left for it to do is blame the LTTE.

Finally... the BBC has confirmed what Sri Lanka has been shouting for months. Why it took these idiots such a long time is beolnd me. Here are some extracts from a BBC article.

"The civilians also confirmed the long-levelled accusations by human rights groups that the Tigers are forcefully recruiting young children and are stopping people from moving out to government-controlled areas.

But the recent batch of patients who reached Pulmoddai say rebels are showing no mercy and are taking away as many people as possible from families.

One civilian, Kauruppaiah Ganapathipillai, said: "The Tigers are increasing the recruitment of children. Now one cannot even send the children out to fetch water.

"They are even taking 14-year-old kids. In some cases which I know they have taken four to five people from the same family. There is continuous shelling. Scores are dying every day."

Look at the army map. SL flags are only in a few place in the north -east.

That means the LTTE owns the rest of the country and Presz.Velu lives in the Araliya-gaha mandiraya.

Re: London Mayhem [LOL]

As I said, River Thames can bear this... even if they all jumped in.

One of my Sydney friends [Sydney correspondent :)] said that Sydney Pussycat campaign was regarded as an aborigine protest by Sydney mass.

Once again what we saw in Westminster is the fact that these homo dravidians are unable, unaware and way too arrogant to follow common procedures set up by others - the world in common. This protest is a good example for the proceedings in Sri Lanka in past century or so.

I hope British have woken up. They have messed their own country by having this kind of people there. Pig-headed, angry, biased, arrogant, and ruthless.

If the first world nations keep on ignoring this threat from the inhuman elements today, they are walking into the same mine pit that SL did in 80s. If they try to take cheap political advantage over these inhuman elements, they should see where it ended up in SL by ignoring them.

First world these are things to ponder for you.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

A closer look into the DM photos . Just have a look in the last pic.

See the fear in the eyes of that tiny girl. These inhuman elements use their children as objects in the political campaigns, just like they use them as cannon fodder in SL.

For heaven's sake children. Leave them out. They did nothing to be there other than being born to ruthless inhuman parents or shameless community.

Thanks DW. So many changes in the blog aye? Looks good, this would allow folks to carry out a decent discussion.

Meanwhile folks, the disgruntled LTTE diaspora (aka punk kids) are trying to provoke the Sri Lankans (non LTTE Tamils and Sinhalese) in most countries, please be vigilant not to fall into their plans.

Visiting you ladies and gentlemen after a long time, hoping to blog again regularly soon.

Sujeewa Kokawala said...

For half a day we're stuck at 94 comments in an overdue post. Surely a post is long pending and at least DW is supposed to read thru the comments by now. Wonder why...

A gag was reported by Mahen, but I did not know DW was house arrested. He had no chance even to read the comments.

Anyway, in the name of national security we will bear all the inconvenience. Anxiously waiting for a new post.

May I raise a topic of interest?

Does anyone know what happened to a ship called HMS [His Monkey's Shitload] Wanking Man sailing from England to some location around Indian ocean?

Does her captain know that there is a great possibility that their destination Eelam may vanish from world map while they battle uncharted blue waters in hostile winds [which they often get anywhere in the world these days]?

And there is a great chance that they may have to dock in Colombo or Trinco in the end?

Bon Voyage comrades !!!

PeacefulHumanRace said...

Hi All,
This is very well written. I am sure you will find this very informative.
Who destroyed Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a place for all of us to live in harmony. If anyone, especially the Tamil Diaspora thinks that Sri Lanka should be ethnically divided, then, the following is food for thought for you. This is also good for those LTTE sympathisers in our country as well as around the world:


Claim: Sri Lanka is the only place for Tamil Ealam

Fact: Sri Lanka is the ONLY place in the world for the Sinhala race and the Veddahs. Whether you like it or not, they have the right to this land before anyone else. Tamils, on the other hand, have the historical right to Tamil Nadu – and that is where the only Ealam Dreamland should be. Or you may consider Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Germany, England or Australia – they have been pampering you well, haven't they?


Claim: North and East are the historical Tamil Homeland

Fact: If you think the North and East belonged to the Tamils historically, think twice. Read the history of Sri Lanka – the truth, not the rubbish you teach in Tamil schools in Germany. Visit Anuradhapura and look at the moonstones: Lankan civilisation began in the North (not in the South) and the Buddhists were there before the Tamils. Many places of worship of significant importance for Buddhists still lie in the North and East, including places such as Nagadveepa and Thiriyaya – which is said to have been built containing relics of the lord Buddha. It was only during the Polonnaruwa regime that the cow was removed from the moonstone as a result of the Hindu influence. That's the first time ever the Cholas set foot in our island – so how dare you claim that the North and East are the "traditional" land of the Tamils?


Claim: Sinhala Buddhists are committing a Genocide in Sri Lanka
(Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.)

Fact: There were Sinhala and Muslim communities living in the North and East – not so long ago. Where are they now? Who has systematically eliminated them, chased them out of their own homes? Who has chopped the heads off the infants, split opened pregnant mothers, stamped their wombs, killed every Sinhala person in sight and torched their
villages? Starting from the Kent Farm and Model Farm, the Tamil extremists have eliminated the Sinhala and Muslim communities from the North (and tried in the East -too); they attacked temples and mosques, brutally executing monks, priests and innocent people while they were praying. From Aranthalawa, Dimbulagala and Sri Maha Bodhiya to Kandy , the barbaric LTTE terrorists didn't even spare a temple or a mosque. It's the Tamil terrorists committing genocide in Sri Lanka, not anyone else!


Claim: Tamils are discriminated in Sri Lanka

Fact: A person from the majority Sinhalese cannot buy a piece of land in the North
(prevented by a pact), but the Tamils can buy land anywhere in the country. Statistically speaking, Tamils are occupying more than their share in universities, in the civil service,
the government and even in the private sector. From Sea Street to 4th Cross Street, there are certain trades and industries that "belong" to the Tamils, and no Sinhala or Muslim merchant can penetrate that.
A closer look at the transformation of Colombo and its suburbs will make any pea-brain understand who is having a better life and who is being pushed aside from the capital city.
From Paskaralingam to Kadirgamar to Muralitharan, there are millions of Tamils who have flourished in this country. It is the Sinhala students who cannot attend the Jaffna
University or the Eastern University, while the Tamil students enjoy their rights all over the country, including the Peradeniya University in the heartland of the Sinhala Buddhists. Even in Colombo, a Sinhala student is not admitted to any Tamil school, while all the Sinhala schools accept Tamil students. From education, to civil service, to businesses and private sector, to land-ownership in Colombo – Tamils are enjoying more than their fair share. How would it be possible if there is so-called discrimination against Tamils in Sri Lanka ?


Claim: Sri Lankan regime has failed to take care of the North and the East

Fact: Jaffna had been almost on par with Colombo at one time, a thriving cosmopolitan – the second capital of Sri Lanka – before the troubles began. There are many provinces and districts that have been forgotten by the ruling parties – North and East aren't at the top of that list. Uva, for example did not even have a university until 2 or 3 years ago;
Moneragala district is the most deprived in the entire country. The governments have always favoured the Tamils – in order to keep their votes, and as a result, they have been enjoying better benefits than the others in Sri Lanka.


Claim: Tamils get hassled and harassed by the security checks

Fact: The Sinhalese, the Muslims, the Burghers – we all get woken up in the wee
hours of the morning, during search operations; we all get our bags, baggage and vehicles checked, we all get harassed – that's the price the innocent people pay for the environment the stupid LTTE has created. Anyone who fails to produce valid identification or reasonable evidence for whereabouts would get into trouble
– unless you are a foreigner (they are the privileged ones in paradise). There are Sinhala and Muslim informants on the LTTE payroll too, so everyone is a 'suspect' at a
checkpoint. We all go through the same hassle, same agony. But then again, you hardly visit Sri Lanka, so what would you know?


Claim: Sinhalese Buddhists are at War with the Tamils

Fact: Nope, we aren't. If we did, there wouldn't have been any Tamils living outside LTTE-controlled areas. Majority of the Tamil population is living outside the LTTE grip; living amongst the other ethnicities in harmony. Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL)
is at war with the terrorists, just like some other democracies around the world. Some LTTE propaganda agents substitute GoSL with Sinhalese Buddhists and LTTE with the
Tamils, to leverage certain situations in their favour.


Claim: Some Sinhala Extremist Parties are spreading Sinhala-only ideologies.

Fact: Yes, there are extremist elements such as Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU trans.
National Sinhala Heritage) – which came to being to counter the extremists such as the LTTE under a political mandate. Tamil extremism is over 50 years old in Sri Lanka
while JHU isn't even 10 years old. JHU, being an extremist, has almost zero influence on the average civil society. Tamils, on the other hand, have "erased" Sinhala from their areas (only Tamil and English exist on the sign boards from the North – out of sight, out of mind?) while the rest of the country treats Tamil as one of the official languages.

Now, who is being extreme and who is breeding extremism in this country?


Claim: Sri Lankan Government has no option but to negotiate with the LTTE

Fact: Sri Lankan Government did not negotiate with the Sinhala Buddhist uprisings in the early 70's and the late 80's. The Sinhala terrorists were captured, tortured and
killed – and their heads decorated the roadside fences. Their burning bodies were seen in almost every street corner every morning, and over 50,000 youth are still missing to
date. That was the Sinhala Buddhist government taking care of the Sinhala Buddhist youth who terrorised the country.
The government does NOT have to negotiate with terrorists. The Sri Lankan governments have been too nice, and tolerant, to the Tamil terrorists all these years.


Claim: The international community has a right to involve in the Sri Lankan situation

Fact: The international community has already banned the LTTE – a terror outfit and its sister-concerns. Not even India can encourage terrorism or division anymore; they too have Mumbai and Kashmir on their agenda. Sadly, it is only a few misguided Tamil businessmen and individuals who support the LTTE around the world trying to lobby a voice for lost cause – they hardly quantify or qualify as the "international community." BBC and the gullible British elements don't qualify either. You too will soon
see the truth and realise that the Ealam dream was nothing but a painful nightmare.


Claim: LTTE is the only and true voice of the Tamil people

Fact: LTTE does not represent the true Tamils of this country. If they did, why
would they eliminate EPRLF, EPDP, EROS and TULF? Weren't they representing Tamils too? Why would they kill any Tamil voice that was against the LTTE agenda – no matter how big or small the person was? From innocent villagers who were
labelled as "traitors" to great statesmen like Lakshaman Kadirgamar, LTTE has killed thousands of its own kith and kin that they were "supposedly" protecting. In fact, the LTTE has killed more innocent Tamils than the number of LTTE militants killed by the Sri Lankan Security Forces. LTTE is not the true voice or the protector of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. It's just the opposite.


Claim: LTTE is protecting the civilians in their area, if they get out, they would be
killed by the Sri Lankan Security Forces. (Also according to LTTE and the BBC)

Fact: Almost all the Tamils in Sri Lanka – except for the ones who are trapped
in the current War Zone – live outside the LTTE influence. How come they are not killed? If over 90% of the Tamils are living outside the LTTE held areas, in harmony with the rest of the Sri Lankans, protected and freely, what are they talking about? They would be killed by the military advance if they DON'T leave the LTTE-held areas soon
enough.


Claim: Sri Lanka failed to recognise the demands of the Tamils and never offered a
political solution

Fact: Sri Lanka did, but sadly the Tamils didn't recognise the power they had in their hands. The country switched from a 225-seater parliament that represented an MP per electorate to the Provincial Council System to satisfy the demands of the Tamils. This may not have been perfect, but it was a very good beginning. North and East were combined and offered in a silver platter to the terrorist leader twice, but he
refused to enter the political stream. LTTE rejected democracy and took up arms, not once, not twice, but many a times. Every "Cease-Fire" ended in LTTE regrouping, re-arming and murdering hundreds of Sinhalese – the Tamil Diaspora that has never set
foot in the island should use their brains to understand why the LTTE were NOT acting for the benefit of the ordinary Tamils.
Sri Lanka would have been better off without the high-maintenance Provincial Council System – with a leaner, meaner, accountable and more responsible Parliament. Today we have a white elephant – created for the Tamils, but fed by the rest of the Sri Lankans.
We were a resourceful nation in South Asia, ahead of Singapore on the development curve, once upon a time. Thanks to the idiotic ideologies and stupidities of LTTE, the whole country has gone back in time – in to the stone ages.
The roads are still the same width as it were 30 years ago, the currency has
depreciated from Rs 16.00 to a US Dollar in 1978 to almost Rs 114.00 to a US Dollar today – a whopping 712% in just 30 years!
The country is filled with the maimed and the war-victims – a huge burden on the welfare system for the next few generations to come. Emotional scars would take another zillion years to heal; and I could write another million ways the war has crippled our Paradise.

Most of all, the LTTE cleverly bumped-off all the brains in the political system –leaving the country in the hands of a bunch of imbeciles. We will win the war and restore peace and stability, but we cannot gain the time we lost. We cannot turn back the clock. The world has moved on, leaving us far behind.

In simple terms, the LTTE morons have shat on the pile of gold that is Sri Lanka. It is going to take a few heavy monsoons to wash away the crap and the stench, and its going to be a hell of a long time before we begin to shine again.

This scumbag of Sri Lanka has done his utmost to destabilize the country including forming the Top Scum Alliance with Ranil, Hakeem, and Mangala to unduly criticize the heroic efforts of our forces. Currently, he is threatening us with Eelam War V. For obvious reasons, he has not uttered a single word against acts of terror by LTTE against the people of Sri Lanka. He conveniently looks over how the innocent Sri Lankans getting killed by LTTE. Currently he is relying on Tamil Sri Lankans living in Colombo as a springboard of his pro LTTE terrorist activities. This man has harbored LTTE suicide terrorists and operatives in his political office at the expense of Sri Lankan tax payer’s money. It is imperative that we investigate this man and put behind bars for his crimes against the people of Sri Lanka.

FROM the BBC:

He said they had issued "repeated requests" images representing the Tamil Tigers - a proscribed organisation in the UK - be removed. The most recent arrest came at 1245 BST (1145 GMT), the Met police said, when a protester was held on suspicion of carrying a flag supporting a proscribed organisation, under the Terrorism Act 2000.

The protest in London is getting interesting.I am sure quite a few will get intoxicated later tonight and turn up with the swords, knuckle dusters and the like.

Why he isnt kicked out,I still dont understand.
As far as Vaiko is concerned,he has become the laughing stock in Tamilnadu.No one respects him.
He is begging to JJ for 1 additional seat,his party has completely deserted him.
His own partymen see him as being sold out to JJ.JJ thinks he is an excess baggage now,since the arrival of PMK and wants him out.
Now even his pet subject and its supporters are shouting him down.
Poor soul
He has again decided to stage the Tamil eelam drama to garner some support.I read that he has organized for state wide agitations tomorrow.Lets see
By the way,as I mentioned earlier,the noise on Eelam war has died down in TN with attention turning towards elections.

That's the first time ever the Cholas set foot in our island – so how dare you claim that the North and East are the "traditional" land of the Tamils?


Claim: Sinhala Buddhists are committing a Genocide in Sri Lanka
(Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.)

Fact: There were Sinhala and Muslim communities living in the North and East – not so long ago. Where are they now? Who has systematically eliminated them, chased them out of their own homes? Who has chopped the heads off the infants, split opened pregnant mothers, stamped their wombs, killed every Sinhala person in sight and torched their
villages? Starting from the Kent Farm and Model Farm, the Tamil extremists have eliminated the Sinhala and Muslim communities from the North (and tried in the East -too); they attacked temples and mosques, brutally executing monks, priests and innocent people while they were praying. From Aranthalawa, Dimbulagala and Sri Maha Bodhiya to Kandy , the barbaric LTTE terrorists didn't even spare a temple or a mosque. It's the Tamil terrorists committing genocide in Sri Lanka, not anyone else!


Claim: Tamils are discriminated in Sri Lanka

Fact: A person from the majority Sinhalese cannot buy a piece of land in the North
(prevented by a pact), but the Tamils can buy land anywhere in the country. Statistically speaking, Tamils are occupying more than their share in universities, in the civil service,
the government and even in the private sector. From Sea Street to 4th Cross Street, there are certain trades and industries that "belong" to the Tamils, and no Sinhala or Muslim merchant can penetrate that.
A closer look at the transformation of Colombo and its suburbs will make any pea-brain understand who is having a better life and who is being pushed aside from the capital city.
From Paskaralingam to Kadirgamar to Muralitharan, there are millions of Tamils who have flourished in this country. It is the Sinhala students who cannot attend the Jaffna
University or the Eastern University, while the Tamil students enjoy their rights all over the country, including the Peradeniya University in the heartland of the Sinhala Buddhists. Even in Colombo, a Sinhala student is not admitted to any Tamil school, while all the Sinhala schools accept Tamil students. From education, to civil service, to businesses and private sector, to land-ownership in Colombo – Tamils are enjoying more than their fair share. How would it be possible if there is so-called discrimination against Tamils in Sri Lanka ?


Claim: Sri Lankan regime has failed to take care of the North and the East

Fact: Jaffna had been almost on par with Colombo at one time, a thriving cosmopolitan – the second capital of Sri Lanka – before the troubles began. There are many provinces and districts that have been forgotten by the ruling parties – North and East aren't at the top of that list. Uva, for example did not even have a university until 2 or 3 years ago;
Moneragala district is the most deprived in the entire country. The governments have always favoured the Tamils – in order to keep their votes, and as a result, they have been enjoying better benefits than the others in Sri Lanka.


Claim: Tamils get hassled and harassed by the security checks

Fact: The Sinhalese, the Muslims, the Burghers – we all get woken up in the wee
hours of the morning, during search operations; we all get our bags, baggage and vehicles checked, we all get harassed – that's the price the innocent people pay for the environment the stupid LTTE has created. Anyone who fails to produce valid identification or reasonable evidence for whereabouts would get into trouble
– unless you are a foreigner (they are the privileged ones in paradise). There are Sinhala and Muslim informants on the LTTE payroll too, so everyone is a 'suspect' at a
checkpoint. We all go through the same hassle, same agony. But then again, you hardly visit Sri Lanka, so what would you know?


Claim: Sinhalese Buddhists are at War with the Tamils

Fact: Nope, we aren't. If we did, there wouldn't have been any Tamils living outside LTTE-controlled areas. Majority of the Tamil population is living outside the LTTE grip; living amongst the other ethnicities in harmony. Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL)
is at war with the terrorists, just like some other democracies around the world. Some LTTE propaganda agents substitute GoSL with Sinhalese Buddhists and LTTE with the
Tamils, to leverage certain situations in their favour.


Claim: Some Sinhala Extremist Parties are spreading Sinhala-only ideologies.

Fact: Yes, there are extremist elements such as Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU trans.
National Sinhala Heritage) – which came to being to counter the extremists such as the LTTE under a political mandate. Tamil extremism is over 50 years old in Sri Lanka
while JHU isn't even 10 years old. JHU, being an extremist, has almost zero influence on the average civil society. Tamils, on the other hand, have "erased" Sinhala from their areas (only Tamil and English exist on the sign boards from the North – out of sight, out of mind?) while the rest of the country treats Tamil as one of the official languages.

Now, who is being extreme and who is breeding extremism in this country?


Claim: Sri Lankan Government has no option but to negotiate with the LTTE

Fact: Sri Lankan Government did not negotiate with the Sinhala Buddhist uprisings in the early 70's and the late 80's. The Sinhala terrorists were captured, tortured and
killed – and their heads decorated the roadside fences. Their burning bodies were seen in almost every street corner every morning, and over 50,000 youth are still missing to
date. That was the Sinhala Buddhist government taking care of the Sinhala Buddhist youth who terrorised the country.
The government does NOT have to negotiate with terrorists. The Sri Lankan governments have been too nice, and tolerant, to the Tamil terrorists all these years.


Claim: The international community has a right to involve in the Sri Lankan situation

Fact: The international community has already banned the LTTE – a terror outfit and its sister-concerns. Not even India can encourage terrorism or division anymore; they too have Mumbai and Kashmir on their agenda. Sadly, it is only a few misguided Tamil businessmen and individuals who support the LTTE around the world trying to lobby a voice for lost cause – they hardly quantify or qualify as the "international community." BBC and the gullible British elements don't qualify either. You too will soon
see the truth and realise that the Ealam dream was nothing but a painful nightmare.


Claim: LTTE is the only and true voice of the Tamil people

Fact: LTTE does not represent the true Tamils of this country. If they did, why
would they eliminate EPRLF, EPDP, EROS and TULF? Weren't they representing Tamils too? Why would they kill any Tamil voice that was against the LTTE agenda – no matter how big or small the person was? From innocent villagers who were
labelled as "traitors" to great statesmen like Lakshaman Kadirgamar, LTTE has killed thousands of its own kith and kin that they were "supposedly" protecting. In fact, the LTTE has killed more innocent Tamils than the number of LTTE militants killed by the Sri Lankan Security Forces. LTTE is not the true voice or the protector of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. It's just the opposite.


Claim: LTTE is protecting the civilians in their area, if they get out, they would be
killed by the Sri Lankan Security Forces. (Also according to LTTE and the BBC)

Fact: Almost all the Tamils in Sri Lanka – except for the ones who are trapped
in the current War Zone – live outside the LTTE influence. How come they are not killed? If over 90% of the Tamils are living outside the LTTE held areas, in harmony with the rest of the Sri Lankans, protected and freely, what are they talking about? They would be killed by the military advance if they DON'T leave the LTTE-held areas soon
enough.


Claim: Sri Lanka failed to recognise the demands of the Tamils and never offered a
political solution

Fact: Sri Lanka did, but sadly the Tamils didn't recognise the power they had in their hands. The country switched from a 225-seater parliament that represented an MP per electorate to the Provincial Council System to satisfy the demands of the Tamils. This may not have been perfect, but it was a very good beginning. North and East were combined and offered in a silver platter to the terrorist leader twice, but he
refused to enter the political stream. LTTE rejected democracy and took up arms, not once, not twice, but many a times. Every "Cease-Fire" ended in LTTE regrouping, re-arming and murdering hundreds of Sinhalese – the Tamil Diaspora that has never set
foot in the island should use their brains to understand why the LTTE were NOT acting for the benefit of the ordinary Tamils.
Sri Lanka would have been better off without the high-maintenance Provincial Council System – with a leaner, meaner, accountable and more responsible Parliament. Today we have a white elephant – created for the Tamils, but fed by the rest of the Sri Lankans.
We were a resourceful nation in South Asia, ahead of Singapore on the development curve, once upon a time. Thanks to the idiotic ideologies and stupidities of LTTE, the whole country has gone back in time – in to the stone ages.
The roads are still the same width as it were 30 years ago, the currency has
depreciated from Rs 16.00 to a US Dollar in 1978 to almost Rs 114.00 to a US Dollar today – a whopping 712% in just 30 years!
The country is filled with the maimed and the war-victims – a huge burden on the welfare system for the next few generations to come. Emotional scars would take another zillion years to heal; and I could write another million ways the war has crippled our Paradise.

Most of all, the LTTE cleverly bumped-off all the brains in the political system –leaving the country in the hands of a bunch of imbeciles. We will win the war and restore peace and stability, but we cannot gain the time we lost. We cannot turn back the clock. The world has moved on, leaving us far behind.

In simple terms, the LTTE morons have shat on the pile of gold that is Sri Lanka. It is going to take a few heavy monsoons to wash away the crap and the stench, and its going to be a hell of a long time before we begin to shine again.

DBS Jeyaraj confirming the losses to LTTE. DBS has been hardly wrong on his reporting on counts.


Another blogger has put the count to 825.

1200 may be a possibility, as we do not know how many died or injured from earlier attacks where they withdrew back to NFZ.

By the way,as I mentioned earlier,the noise on Eelam war has died down in TN with attention turning towards elections.


Dear Indian,

Your comments on TN politics are very interesting.

My concern is that the pro-LTTE crowd is now busily orchestrating the creation of an entirely new political front in TN, and seems to be getting grass-roots level traction in that effort, that the establishment does not seem to appreciate. This was always my long-term fear from a Sri Lankan viewpoint, and it should be India's fear from a Union Govt and national integrity viewpoint as well. The failure of the established pro-LTTE politicians like Vaiko, Ramadoss, Thirumavalavan and Karunanidhi to provoke Indian Intervention again in Sri Lanka, is now precipitating this next phase of the LTTE agenda in TN much earlier than I had anticipated.

These pro-LTTE activists will be independent of the established politicians, and will be controlled largely by people planted in Tamil Nadu over a long period by the LTTE, and joined by recent additions by boat. They will concentrate first on the university students and the disaffected minorities and will undermine the established politicians. As I see it, Vaiko, Ramadoss and Thirumavalavan who relied on those very same segments for their support, will now be regarded by the pro-LTTE activists as unnecessary baggage and competitors for the same powerbase, now they have outlived their usefulness by failing to rescue the LTTE by precipitating Indian intervention in Sri Lanka. They will not win any Lok Sabha seats in the coming elections; that will happen in the next round of elections when they have massaged the electorate properly.

I don't expect TN politics to return to politics-as-usual after the elections. There will be a very high level of civil strife in TN from now on, with the pro-LTTE activists well funded by global LTTE-operations and the Sri-Lankan Tamil Diaspora; the funds now freed from military purposes in Sri Lanka will be deployed to destabilize and overturn established politicians in Tamil Nadu.

Keep an eye open for who the pro-LTTE student leaders are, their affiliations and political connections. They are the emerging leaders of TN.

The same tactics used by LTTE/separatists agitators in Sri Lanka will now be used in TN. But, in TN they will have an enormous advantage: Tamils are the majority, and the young, jobless, poor, and historically disadvantaged people segment they will target are also a large segment of the population in TN.

In Sri Lanka, with wisdom acquired through blood and tears, we will keep the separatists under firm control from now on. But, in TN, they are still living in a fools paradise and have no notion of how to deal with these people. When TN comes to its senses a decade from now, it will be too late and you will have a huge problem on your hands. Tamil Nadu, much poorer and more illiterate, more divided by caste and wealth than Sri Lanka, will fall like a ripe mango into their hands. The ordinary innocent people of TN will pay the price in the coming conflict, unless the establishment forces recognize the rising danger and crush them before their plans can come to bloom.

Fools who ignore history are condemned to repeat the same mistakes. Don't feel bad, dear cousin, to our eternal chagrin, we Sri Lankans already head that hallowed list of fools.

From Iraq to India: Shoe Throwing Spreads like a Wildfire


Journalist hurls shoe at Chidambaram

New Delhi (PTI): A Sikh journalist on Tuesday hurled a shoe at Home Minister P. Chidambaram protesting against the CBI’s clean chit to senior Congress leader Jagdish Tytler accused in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, but it missed the target.

Chidambaram, who was addressing a press conference at the AICC headquarters, was surprised when suddenly Jarnail Singh, journalist from a Hindi daily, flung the shoe and an alert Home Minister made a quick movement to see it pass by him.

"Please take him away," said Chidambaram who later added "gently, gently" as the journalist was escorted out of the press conference hall. Later, he was taken away by police but it was not clear whether any case has been registered against him against the backdrop of Mr. Chidambaram saying "I forgive him".

As the action caused a flutter in the hall, a composed Mr. Chidambaram appealed to the reporters, "let not the action of one emotional person hijack the entire press conference. I have answered his questions to the best of my ability."

It all started with the journalist asking him about the clean chit given by CBI to Tytler in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case under pressure from the government.

"First of all let me make it clear that CBI is not under the Home Ministry. To my knowledge neither the Home Ministry nor any ministry of the government had put any pressure on the CBI," Mr. Chidambaram said.

"CBI has only given a report to the court. It is for the court to accept or reject or ask for further investigation by CBI. Let us wait for the court decision," he said.

As the journalist persisted with his questions, Mr. Chidambaram told him "no arguments, you are using this forum..." following which the journalist hurled his shoe.

An unapologetic Mr. Singh said he will not apologise for his action, though his manner of protest might have been wrong.

"My manner of protest might have been wrong, but I did not intend to hurt anyone," he said.

Asked if he could have used some other manner to protest, he said, "for the last 25 years this has been happening. So what other method is left (to protest)".

Earlier this month, CBI had given a clean chit to 1984 anti-Sikh riots accused Tytler and sought permission from the court for the closure of the case against the Congress leader.

Police has taken the journalist into custody and is questioning him.

Loud Explosions in NFZ Reported April 08, 2009

Patriots,

Let me speculate on what these explosions could be, in priority order:

1. Tigers using explosives to excavate underground defenses

2. Tigers testing effectiveness of underground mines laid to kill our troops in the expected move into the NFZ to rescue civilians, or to blow up escaping civilians. These mines could be laid along the land corridors into the NFZ, the shallow fords in the lagoons between the NFZ and the mainland, and along anticipated beach landing zones to forestall invasion of the NFZ by sea.

3. Tigers are destroying their residual military hardware and explosive stockpiles to deny their "donation by capture" to the SLA.

4. Accidental ignition of explosives stockpiled in the NFZ.

5. Tigers blew up some civilians who wanted to escape so they could blame it on the SLA for a last minute propaganda effort.

6. Tiger leaders committed suicide by blowing themselves up.

What is the most likely of these in your opinion?

These explosions must have been observed by our UAVs. Does anybody have any additional information on what is going on?

Loud explosions heard in NFZ, after the final announcements made to LTTE to release civilians

Several loud explosions have been heard in the NFZ soon after army made the final announcement for the LTTE terrorists to release the civilians held hostage by them this afternoon (Apr 8). The army has made announcement using loudspeakers positioned few hundred meters short of the western border of the NFZ.

Army suspects that the terrorists have launched some sort of an attack at the civilians who tried to escape their rule.

Yet Another Speculation: Rebellion by Civilians/LTTE cadre in NFZ?

Rebellion crushed in the NFZ?

Serious disturbances have been observed in the NFZ since last afternoon (Apr 8) with loud explosions and machine gun fire have been heard in the Ampalawanpokkanai area, defence.lk special correspondent on the field reveal.

Sri Lanka Army units deployed just 500- 400 m short of the LTTE built earth bund on the border of the NFZ in Ampalavanpokkanai West, reported sighting of a large group of people gathering in the NFZ during the afternoon hours before the explosions and shooting began. The sources suspect a serious clash between the LTTE terrorists and their civilian hostages held in the zone.

" Troops have observed something similar to organized gathering of people in the area in front of them following an announcement made to the LTTE terrorists to release the civilian hostages and to lay down their arms", said our correspondent .

"Then, they have heard gunshots and explosions in the NFZ, following which they too have been kept on full alert", he added.

Ampalavanpokkanai is the closest area to the Army forward boundary to which the civilians can access via the causeway, if allowed by the terrorists. Troops have been manning their defences few hundred meters short of NFZ border there, in order to provide the maximum protection to the civilians escaping the terror clutches.

Meanwhile, troops deployed in the area rescued a group 118 civilians from the LTTE clutches during the morning hours yesterday. The group included 51 children, 36 women and 31 men.

According to our correspondent, LTTE has been busy with building command bunkers and other fortifications on the NFZ border close to the causeway, knowing the possibility that civilians may escape their rule in large numbers from this area.

"It is likely that LTTE is going to concentrate all its remaining field leaders and best fighting cadre in this area", he said.

Meanwhile, intelligence sources revealed that Pottu Amman has ordered his so-called police chief Ilango send all his cadre to the frontline.
