Mind over muscle: Why change now?

Though the entire country supporting a quick resolution of the hostage crisis is paranoid, particularly around a 'delay in finishing this war', the Sri Lanka Army and Military Planners has maintained remarkable cool. No Army in the history of warfare has been subject to this much pressure and maintained such cool against all odds.

What can be characterized as a remarkable success is the Army's choice to use its brains in this final phase of operations rather than muscle or brute force. This is complemented by a clear political strategy under the elected leadership. The Military and political leadership has demonstrated, against all odds, that military action is only a means of achieving the end, which as always, is political.

The Sri Lankan Military has responded constructively to criticism and demonstrated a sensitivity to the political environment in the region and elsewhere. Its respect for civilian life, and accountability has been very high for an Army from the 'global south' and goes above and beyond armies from powerful western countries whose mistakes are often untouchable to the UN, media, diaspora or anti-war propaganda.

No Army would endure such painstaking maneuvers as the Sri Lanka Army has when all it needs is to overrun the 4km2 stretch of land to finish in a few hours what it has endured for 30 years. Even the smaller Malvidian Army could overrun this area in hours but the Sri Lankans are not willing to risk civilian lives.

This is the fundamental value of a military-- to protect those who cannot protect themselves and to act ONLY on the orders of those elected by the people. These are the enduring signs of a professional military functioning within a democracy.

The Sri Lanka military has sacrificed the easier option, not because of international pressure, since such pressure is being exerted regardless, but because of these fundamental values. Until this hostage taking by the LTTE, which increased by 100% the chances of civilian casualties, the Sri Lankan Military had avoided any serious incidents of collateral damage.

Any responsible state issuing edicts against the Sri Lankan state on alleged misconduct by its military should think very clearly the message it sends out to other armies around the world. The message is that you can be penalized for whatever effort you may take to preserve human life in times of war, so why try it in the first place?

Not even the famous 'carrot and sticks' approach of the West was afforded to the Sri Lankan military. No carrots have ever been given by those states that lead this criticism though there have been a fair share of sticks.

Such criticism sets a very bad precedence to other, not so professional armies around the world who are learning from this example/experience that modern wars can indeed be won without 80% civilian casualties. In fact, the past three years of the humanitarian operation have recorded the lowest casualties to civilians though heavy fighting had ensued in 6 Districts.

The Sri Lanka Army, unlike its more powerful counterparts, do not fire at passing civilian vehicles on the road when they venture near a convoy or (despite its technological advancements) are unable to prevent avoidable incidents of collateral damage.

A Paranoid LTTE is worse than any off-target artillery

Having reached the outskirts of a newly declared safe zone within the remaining No Fire Zone, the only threat to the trapped civilians and the Sri Lanka Army is the paranoia that's crept into the LTTE, which is a catastrophe waiting to happen. Unfortunately, nothing has been done by the Internationals to mitigate this very serious threat.

LTTE's cowardice reached a new level after its latest attack on civilians attempting to move to a newly demarcated No Fire Zone. There are conflicting reports as to how many civilians have been killed in this LTTE attack, but the numbers could be over 400.

With the latest possibility of losing their human shield, the LTTE seems to have lost its cool completely. The objective of the Army was to get civilians out of harms way from the LTTE by moving them away from the Nanthikadal lagoon and towards the Mulaitivu coast by splitting the remaining portion of land inside the NFZ. But the Tigers had cold feet.

The Tigers want the civilians to remain at Nanthikadal lagoon where a series of bunkers and strong points provide protection to the LTTE leadership. This area is well fortified, whereas the coastal area is not.

Knowing that the fortifications are no match for the Army, the only possibility of guaranteeing survival for the Tiger leadership is to have the civilians on the side of the Nanthikadal lagoon. This should demonstrate to any observer beyond reasonable doubt that the Sri Lankan Military is not willing to risk civilian lives no matter what.

The 4mk2 land area, part of the NFZ declared by the government for the safety of the civilians is also where the LTTE leadership, unable to face the Sri Lankan military, is also hiding. Although this fact needs no mentioning, certain sections of the 'International Community' seem to have forgotten this reality.

Either way, the week starting 10th May will be crucial for both sides. Anything is possible with the Army reaching the outskirts of the newly declared NFZ.

Thanks again for the valuable update and really appreciate it

DW,

Army.lk says SLA had to enter the CSZ due to the brutal ACTIONS OF LTTE AGANST CIVILIANS.PLEASE VERIFY.

Defencewire said...

Yes the Army had to go in there because over 1000 civilians ran back towards LTTE area when LTTe opened-up with arti and mortars. If the civilians make another attempt the SLA will be in a better position to attempt to save them.

Defencewire said...

Chelian may have been killed. Who cares about Ilanthirayan? He was not a military wing cadre.

Political Observer said...

DW,

In your previous post you wrote to say the Indian elections were holding up the operations. That was not true--was this a case of giving the LTTE some false propaganda?

Either way, it was obvious that the SLA knew better and was going on with operation.

This post is more about the SLA. It is useful, but you need to give details. For example, the readings from the arty radar that shows where the LTTE fired from.

If the SLA can release the data on the LTTE arty firing on civilians while the death of the civilians are still fresh on people's minds, then it would have maximum effect to counter the pressure you write about.

P.O.

There is a doctor in the no fire zone. He is the son of the god. His words are god's words. He is not an LTTER (100%). The satellite phone he is using to spread the "whole truth and nothing but the truth" is not LTTE's property (of course it is the god's property). LTTE doesn't tell him what to say. He can even criticize LTTE. He is not doing that because LTTE is faultless, same as his father god.
After all he is a "government doctor". How can a "government doctor" be on the side of the LTTE?
"The government school teacher" who was taken prisoner while fighting the SL Army was also not an LTTER. How can a "government school teacher" be an LTTER? Impossible! She was fighting for her own fun. Chingalese understand nothing.

Sri Lanka’s ruthless war aimed at crushing Tamil separatism seems to have triggered a phenomenon that has strengthened the Tamils’ resolve for independence as never before. A new chapter of the Tamil campaign is in the making, and the signs are that the next episode is going to be even more formidable than the Tamil Tigers’ mini-state project. With South India’s full backing – also, with the international community’s blessings – the Tamils are going to press for just two options: either a confederation or total separation. With or without Prabakaran, the Tamil struggle is bound to move forward in a far more sophisticated form – this time with an explicitly separatist agenda whole-heartedly backed by people all over the world, more relevantly by millions of Tamils in South India. And, the Tamils will not need a mini-state to convince the world of their campaign’s legitimacy” Quotes by former Lankan state TV chair Vasantha Raja on www.groundviews.org

Thanks for the update DW.

The last Phase of the Indian elections, Phase 5B, starts on May 13 and ends on May 16, according to my understanding. I suspect the war will be over by the 17th, and the LTTE will be history by then. Any campaign by the diaspora after that will be irrelevant as far as Sri Lanka is concerned. Not that it has been relevant up to now. Even in TN, the cause of the LTTE has been in words only. Karunanidi may have composed a poem to Tamil Chelvam but that's about the extent of his support. Jumping off bridges, blocking roads, self-immolation, and hunger strikes has no impact on western public opinion or western policy makers. It only shows that the people who do these deeds are lunatics in the eyes of the world.

Just in case any one has forgotten, this is the proposal made by the LTTE on Nov 1, 2003 for an Interim Self-Governing Authority. Thanksfully, Chandrika, erratic as she may have been, dismissed the Ranil-UNP Govt three days later on November 4. If not for her actions the LTTE would have had a seperate state in deed if not words.


THE PROPOSAL BY THE LIBERATION TIGERS OF TAMIL EELAM ON BEHALF OF THE TAMIL PEOPLE FOR AN AGREEMENT TO ESTABLISH AN INTERIM SELF-GOVERNING AUTHORITY FOR THE NORTHEAST OF THE ISLAND OF SRI LANKA Consistent with the principles of the rule of law, the human rights and equality of all persons, and the right to self-determination of Peoples, Determined to bring lasting peace to all persons of the island of Sri Lanka, Acknowledging with appreciation the services of the Royal Norwegian Government, the Norwegian People, and the international community in attempting to bring peace to the island, Recognizing that a peaceful resolution is a real possibility, despite the challenging history of the peace process between the Tamil people and the Sinhala people. Determined to establish an interim self-governing authority for the NorthEast region and to provide for the urgent needs of the people of the NorthEast by formulating laws and policies and, effectively and expeditiously executing all resettlement, rehabilitation, reconstruction, and development in the NorthEast, while the process for reaching a final settlement remains ongoing. Being aware that the history of the relations between the Tamil People and the Sinhala People has been a process of broken promises and unilateral abrogation, by successive governments of Sri Lanka, of pacts and agreements solemnly entered into between the government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the elected representatives of the Tamil People, Bearing in mind that successive Governments of Sri Lanka have perpetrated persecution, discrimination, State violence and State-orchestrated violence against the Tamil People, Noting that the Tamil people mandated their elected representatives to establish an independent sovereign, secular State for the Tamil people in the elections subsequent to the Vaddukoddai Resolution of 1976, Bearing in mind that the Tamil armed struggle as a measure of self-defense and as a means for the realisation of the Tamil right to self-determination arose only after more than four decades of non-violent and peaceful constitutional struggle proved to be futile and due to the absence of means to resolve the conflict peacefully,Recalling that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) first took measures towards peace by unilaterally declaring the ceasefire in December, 2000 and again in December, 2001, opening highways, facilitating trade and the free movement of people, and entering into peace negotiations in good faith in the hope of creating an environment conducive to the return of normalcy and a just resolution of the conflict, Taking Note of the political courage of the present GOSL in reciprocating to the 2001 cease-fire,

Realizing that the war in the island of Sri Lanka was principally confined to the NorthEast, resulting in the destruction of the social, economic, administrative, and physical infrastructure of that area, and that the NorthEast still remains the region in the island of Sri Lanka affected by war, Recognising that the majority of the Tamil People in the NorthEast, by their actions in the general elections held in the year 2000, gave their mandate acknowledging the LTTE as their authentic representative, Knowing that the LTTE exercises effective control and jurisdiction over the majority of the NorthEast area of the island of Sri Lanka, Realising that reaching a final negotiated settlement and the implementation thereof is expected to be a long process, Affirming the necessity for the safe and free return of all refugees and displaced persons and their urgent need for unimpeded access to their homes and secure livelihoods at land and sea in the NorthEast, Mindful that institutions and services provided by the GOSL have proved to be inadequate to meet the urgent needs of the people of the NorthEast, Recognising the failure of the Sub-committee on Immediate Humanitarian and Rehabilitation Needs (SIHRN) and other Sub-Committees formed during the peace negotiations, which failure was due to the composition of such Sub-Committees, which repeatedly led to inaction, Acknowledging the recognition by the GOSL of the necessity for an Interim Authority, as mentioned in its 2000 election manifesto, Realising that maintenance of law and order is an essential pre-requisite for a just and free society, Recognising the need for raising revenue to meet the urgent needs for the Resettlement, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Development of the NorthEast region, which has been devastated by war, and for the carrying out of any function of Government, Recognising the importance of control over land in resettlement, rehabilitation, reconstruction and development,Mindful that the Tamils did not participate in the making of the 1972 and 1978 constitutions, which institutionalized discrimination and denied them an effective role in the decision-making process, Noting the practice in international relations over the last decade of solving conflicts between Peoples through agreement between the parties to the conflict on terms of equality and through innovative and imaginative measures, 2
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Relying on international precedents for establishing interim governing arrangements in war-torn countries having the force of law based solely on pacts or agreements between the warring parties recognized by the international community, Noting that measures such as the Ceasefire Agreement, including the role of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), and, the establishment of the SIHRN and the NorthEast Reconstruction Fund (NERF) constitute valid precedents for making such arrangements, Wherefore, the Parties, namely the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and the Government of Sri Lanka, hereby agree to the following provisions: 1.

In the determination of any dispute the arbitrators shall ensure the parity of status of the LTTE and the GOSL and shall resolve disputes by reference only to the provisions of this Agreement. The decision of the arbitrators shall be final and conclusive and it shall be binding on the Parties to the dispute. 23. Operational Period This Agreement shall continue until a new Government for the NorthEast, pursuant to a permanent negotiated settlement, is established. The Parties will negotiate in good faith to reach such a settlement as early as possible. Provided, however, that at the end of four years if no final agreement has been reached between the Parties to this agreement, both Parties shall engage in negotiations in good faith for the purpose of adding, clarifying, and strengthening the terms of this Agreement. 8

SARA said...

DW, Your write up says most of what I had in mind but you have added a new dimension by saying that the actions of the IC will encourage other armies to carry on regardless because it does not make a difference in the eyes of the Western World.

This episode also shows how words can kill. The biased words of the Western countries, NGO's and the Western media have caused the death of hundreds of Tamils civilians. If not for these words there is a chance that LTTE may have given up by now. In this sense they have been murderers.

P.S. Why do we call these villains the International Community? Aren't countries like China, Russia and Japan part of the International Community? I think IC stands for Interfering Countries.

We as a nation should not look for marks for good behaviour from these people. We have to do what is right and make compromises when necessary.

They are never going to give us any marks whatever we do.

Thanks DW.

Any news from "UN update session"?

lankaputhra said...

We are loosing propaganda war against Tamil Tigers. Our ambassador in UK even can’t talk in front of TV.
Why GOSL justify all killings done by Tamil Tigers…
Monday is UN council meeting
Last days of Indian Election
That’s why Tamil tigers killed many civilians …why we can’t prove that Tigers did all that to emphasise the world?

Our professionals must act now to improve the image of GOSL. This is the good time to use Tamil MPs in the government to talk about the situation.

Why we are not taking advantage of technical equipment and IDPs for our propaganda purpose?

We must act now before it too late …People in SL must go to streets to urging Tigers to release Tamils…

Some propaganda work must be done immediately and I hope Gota must talk carefully to the media.

NOLTTE=Peace said...

Hemantha,

I think we can ignore the UN update session due to many reasons (too busy to list them here).

We have to focus on factually counter any external pressures while doing our job.

We should use UAV footage, Fire Control Radar evidence, Recorded Conversations of Terrorists, and the Video Testimonials from the Civilians and Surrendered LTTErs to present our side of the case.

Nevertheless, we should be pushing forward.

Earlier what I heard was 59 Div has moved North bypassing the bridge. But still all the info coming out about 59 Div is conflicting.

I wish 59 Div is now in the earlier NFZ and taking matters to their hand.

We should expect LTTE to unleash an all out war soon, and needs to be prepared to minimize our own and civilian casualties.

I am hugely in favor of taking out LTTE assets i.e. suicide boats etc from air and CAS. Hope our boys getting them.

Keep up the good work man! Monkeys are all over the place now like headless chicken!

Admin, please do not delete this for the sake of the hundreds that have died.

A govt that has been indiscriminately shelling what itself defined as "Safe Zone"- how do you call it a govt? I am not taking sides here, in fact , I am not blinded by the facts of the atrocities LTTE has done to it's people and others. However, I'd like to ask my fellow brothers, how do you justify these deaths as casualties of war? What if your mother or father was among the civilians that died last week?

as a non tamil and completely unbiased. i have to say that the tamils are clearly right and this can only be described in the same nature as the holocaust.the government doesnt want media there because it deoesnt want people to find out what is actually going on i.e getting rid of all tamils.

If you support the SL gov then you are supporting terrorism, STATE TERRORISM. Maybe we should put all the SL bastards in the IDP camp for a couple of weeks, so you can first hand experience the pain the Tamils are encountering.

Time for World to realise how Srilanka Govt. is manipulating things to get help for its Genocidal war which it has started in 1948 and killed 100s of thousands of Tamils. Time to look at the BBC Documentary to understand the root cause of the conflict

Noltte,
I agree with you. But we have to avoid any UN resolutions in the future too. Miliband is trying his best. Our battle readiness regarding the propaganda war is questionable. Rajiva and Kohona is doing a good job. But that is not enough. The response time is too long. FM is useless.
IMF loan will be delayed and might get cancelled too. We have to be ready for any eventuality.
As you said correctly, finishing off the LTTE, sooner rather than later is prime important.

Reports of the fighting are difficult to verify because the government bars journalists and aid workers from the war zone.

Nick CHANNEL 4,
I must say you are a lucky person because you are from Europe. Imagine, if you were a Sri Lankan, you would have been killed by unidentified men by now for reporting the truth, like the Sunday Leader Editor and other several Sri Lankan journalists. Whoever telling the truth are supporters of the LTTE and have been bribed by the LTTE! It is the Sri Lankan Govt who is telling the truth. For example, it said in the beginning that there were only around 60,000 civilians in the conflict zone. Now, there are nearly 200,000 refugees who are detained in the so called intern camps. I wonder where they came from!!! Only the Sri Lankan govt would know.

It is no point having Saman Kumara Ramawickrama explaining LTTE acts in Sinhala to the world. Need a proper, planned and strategic counter information to tell the truth to the world. And if we not act fast, it will become worst.

And for any LTTE dubms happy reading this, pl. note that even it has to kill 1000 people to get Prabha, we get that. Becasue killing 100 civilian + Praba will help to avoid death of 100000 people.

hemantha said...

"India, we reliably learn, never expected the army to capture Kilinochchi. Even RAW thought the war would end up in a stalemate after months of fighting with the army nursing a bloody nose. That was why Solheim boasted in Oslo with an RAW agent that the LTTE would suck in the army at Kilinochchi and wipe them out the way the Red Army had done to the German troops in Stalingrad during WW II. But, Army Chief Lt. Gen. Sarath Fonseka surprised India and other countries which doubted the army's capability, by bagging Kilinochchi and cornering Prabhakaran in Mullaitivu. "

If SL Govt. announce a Ceasfire, what will happen?
1). Will LTTE let civilians to go?

2). Will India or SL Govt pardon VP and Poddu Amman?

3). Will suffering of Civilians will end?

4). And do you beleive SLA will go back to Mavil-Aru?

Even at a ceasfire, SLA will encircle this area and watch, while Civilians will suffer. This can drag from weeks to years with no result.


It is simple point : SLA is only after VP and Poddu Amman. They don't care about even leaders like Soosai.

So, if any Dispora want to save the Civilians;
a). Ask LTTE to release the civilians for the god's sake and face like mens

OR

b). Handover the VP and Poddu Amman

Any other options like protests, IC threats will go in vain. (However I am not too sure weather it is too late for either of above options?)

If present govt. can kill VP and team even by killing 1000 civilians and if they have to go to war crimes.. dont forget that SL have politicians even like Ranil to run the country. So we don't give a damn about IC and UN.

If VP killed, Dispora will lose all your 30-years investment, and the tragic mistake of putting all eggs in one basket (Supporting un educated VP and killing educated tamil leaders)..cant be CTRL+Z

Thusitha said...

We need an editorial published against BBC in independent English Newspapers such as Island condemning the behaviour of the BBC. They are going beyond their Journalistic behaviour and has become the mouth pieces of LTTE. They are behaving detrimental to the values of the Sri Lankan society. It is now the duty of the Journalists to take on BBC and show the world who they are. It is most effective if this is done by the journalists than the Government, otherwise it would be seen as interfering with New Media.

Editorial should ask BBC to leave our Island Nation if they cannot maintain impartial reporting.
It is the duty of our Journalist to protect our country's image being tarnished through out the world by biased Media.

Therefore, please, please take it upon yourself to act against biased media reporting by BBC and expel these people from our country.

Amila.W said...

As I see this military battle between SLA and LTTE is now coming to its conclusion. It is a matter of few more days. SLA will over run last remaining tiger force and kill all leaders and senior cadres. They may like to take some people like Pottu live for information about LTTE international network, foreign investments and third party helpers from countries like Norway, Sweden and India.

However, as I see it large scale civilian carnage is inevitable. That is not because of SLA, purely because of desperate LTTE leadership which is willing to sacrifice any number stay alive for few more days.

Delaying conclusion will not help trapped civilians. Speedy liberation will help them immensely even if there is some casualty.

/Any responsible state issuing edicts against the Sri Lankan state on alleged misconduct by its military should think very clearly the message it sends out to other armies around the world. The message is that you can be penalized for whatever effort you may take to preserve human life in times of war, so why try it in the first place?/

Excellent point. This article must reach our diplomats especially in EU countries and USA to fomulate their ideas around these lines.

So no security council meeting, probably thanks to China and Russia. Looks like sillyband is shocked.

[Top diplomats from Britain and France were rebuffed on Monday when some UN Security Council members refused their request to discuss the fighting in Sri Lanka, which killed more than 400 people during the past weekend.

[We are more than shocked, we cannot support the way in this particular place while people are suffering and dying,' Kouchner told reporters, showing his indignation

[Both Miliband and Kouchner said they were ready to tell council members 'what they have seen' in Sri Lanka, but apparently they were not allowed to.]

I wonder whether anyone has considered the possibility that LTTE leaders may use their aircraft to escape to some part in Sri Lanka itself at the last moment. Everybody seems to be concerned about LTTE using aircraft to escape to another country. Considering the trouble we have weeding out terrorists from jungles in the East this would be very bad. It shouldn't be that difficult for them to land those flying machines in some small hidden place which aren't that difficult to find given that
they are familiar with the ground.

good observation da & DW.

how true??? the big boys need not be under scrutiny whereas we have to and still we are doing MUCH better than them.

"The objective of the Army was to get civilians out of harms way from the LTTE by moving them away from the Nanthikadal lagoon and towards the Mulaitivu coast by splitting the remaining portion of land inside the NFZ."


my humble strategy of SPLITTING the NFZ at work!!

Moshe Dyan said...

it is the hostage takers killing the hostages FORCING SLA to move in as quickly as possible.

shelling LTTE positions might injure civilians but they are evacuated by ICRC ship to permanant safety. but FORTUNATELY this option is not available to tigers.

come to think of the tamil madu election, it does NOT matter who wins there as i said b4.

the tussle is between one lump of shit (karuna-nidi) and another lump of shit (jeyalalita) BOTH supporting tamil elam!!

the problem comes when forming a government.

ONLY THEN will these jokers will demand to create TE, invade SL, put pressure on SL, broker a ceasefire, pressure SL for a political solution and other BS, if the coalition wants them. and the coalition will either need them or likely to want them.

that is the time of trouble (if any) for SL from tamil madu.

that will happen between 16 - 20. so we actually have 4 - 8 days of LESS pressure from india.

but better not late. if we can finish the worse part of this by that time, that would seal the fate of vezapillai & LTTE for good with less headaches.

anyway in the LONG RUN even this pressure does not matter bcos like thonda, these 2 jokers or either of them will join the indian ruling party!!

It is essential that SLG destroys LTTE international network with its investments to secure peaceful future for Sri Lanka.

LTTE terrorists protesting in Canada and in UK are endangering their kids by involving these kids in their unlawful assemblies and activities. They are using these kids as "kid shields" in order to block any actions coming from law enforcement agencies. (No wonder their terrorist leaders in Sri Lanka are using innocent civilians as human shields and killing them when try to leave).

Parents of these innocent kids who endanger their lives are not suitable for the parenthood. Authorities in these countries should investigate these videos of these unlawful assemblies and should identify these innocent kids and their criminal and irresponsible parents.
EVENTUALLY, SOME OF THESE KIDS MAY HAVE TO BE REMOVED FROM THEIR PARENTS FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY.

Moshe Dyan said...

amila,

sorry to disappoint you, but LTTE's international network CANNOT be destroyed. i know this view is unpopular, but true.

1. LTTE's int. purchasing network - CAN be crippled in SOME countries only

2. LTTE's money-for-direct-weapons-purchases network - CAN be crippled in SOME countries

3. LTTE International Inc. (political wing) - CANNOT be crippled in ANYWAY

4. LTTE International Inc. (finance wing apart from 2 above) - CANNOT be crippled in ANYWAY

e.g. raj rajaratnam, etc., etc.

tamil diaspora's economy (>$45bn) is bigger than the SL economy ($39bn) and SL diaspora doesn't finance war.

5. LTTE international MEDIA/NGO/HR wings CANNOT be harmed in any way. i expect a MASSIVE enhancement in this area. an area worth studying in DETAIL.

agree that we should do whatever we can to DESTROY/CRIPPLE/REDUCE these wings AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

the rest is INTERNAL. we should FRUSTRATE the TE project IN SL. that will, in the long term, collapse the LTTE international wings.

Ananda-USA, who is the best analytical and articulate mind here (honestly) have different views. but i have agreed to disagree with him on SOME of the above.

Moshe Dyan said...

Amila.W said...

MD,

I agree with what you say. However, if we possess the vital info on who is who and what they do; we can pass that info to MI and security institutions in respective countries as well as to the Interpol. Then we can request them to take action because criminal elements cannot work against sovereign country from another sovereign country due to international treaties.

Example: If we can acquire where about of KP (Pathmanathan) from Pottu or somebody, we can pass that info to Interpol for arrest and deport back to SL.

hemantha said...

Moshe,
"sorry to disappoint you, but LTTE's international network CANNOT be destroyed."

What you are telling is true. But there is a way out. We need to use gun mounted "tranquilizers" to get Pottu. Then some "truth serum" may do the work. In addition, we should be looking for ways of importing KP. Again, some tranquilizers might be helpful if we can find him.

Already, we have found some info lying in the captured LTTE command bunkers.

FrmdaRock said...

Moshe Dyan,

Tamil diaspora cannot be stopped at what they do in another country - yes. But once the LTTE is militarily defeated, the on-us will be with the GOSL to address the grievances of the Tamil people, correctly. If not, SL will not be able to continue arguing that this is an internal problem. Once the GOSL have achieved the military objetives, the challanges in rebuilding the North/East will be really difficult. This will be the time LTTE Intl. Inc. will start playing the political games and work for sanctions against Sri Lanka or to create a separate autonomy for the Tamils.

dogooder said...

About the Civilian casualties given by this INFAMOUS doctor, um, why isn't anyone asking why he's not busy doing doctor things??? Instead he's running around taking photos of these unfortunate beings? Doesn't make any sense, but what makes sense is that the GOSL has lost credibility in the west, hence when statements are issued from GOSL doesn't have much effect. As far as the west is concerned GOSL must have something to hide if they continue to ban journalists.

The propaganda war must be faught along side the conventional war and GOSL's seriously lacking on the part. I don't see how it can be damaging to the GOSL to let in a select few independent observers at this point of the war. YOu guys are doing a great job, but unfortunately that's just not enough, Government of SL can't just rely on a few good expats. This HAS to be on a large scale, I'm suggesting a professional PR firm.

Guys,

We have dart guns that can bring down Kandy tooth temple tuskers when it is behaving badly. Therefore my 02 cents recommendation is to use some kind of dart guns with paralysing anaesthetics in the final phase to capture most of high level criminals.

There are many ways to make them talk, if we can get them alive.

There are very sensitive info about Tamil Diaspora with telephone and account numbers as well as foreign helpers like Vaiko and Eric Solhiem, which they are desperate to hide.

Real win is, if we can get exposed these invisible enemies of SL. We must give it our best try.

Majority of Torontonians are loosing their sympathy towards Tamil protesters. Very good this is now happening in UK, France and Germany too.

Soon LTTE military wing will be gone and Tamil Diaspora will be marginalised internationally. However, their political wing can be dangerous for years to come. We need to be vigilant until cry for ealam completely forgotten by IC.

SLG also should initiate commercial hubs and busy cities in all major towns of north and east. This will attract Sinhalese and Muslims for trade and industry lowering Tamil numbers. If we try to establish villages with Sinhalese and Muslims, there will be a out cry. However, urbanising towns cannot be regarded as colonising!

wijayapala said...

Dear Reasonably Treasonable,

"Your claim was that a military victory for the SLA will be better (for the Tamils), in the long-term, than a ceasefire now (Note that, in this respect, the question you just asked is a void, since human shields are only endangered when there is a war, not when there is a ceasefire)."

I suggest you read what DBS Jeyaraj (no friend of the govt) wrote about how the LTTE is seeking a permanent ceasefire precisely so that it won't have to give up the civilians it is forcibly holding. Therefore your argument neatly meshes with the LTTE's (though probably unwittingly). The LTTE too would argue that the civilians' safety would be best assured with a permanent ceasefire- although it wouldn't add that it would continue to use the civilians as cannon fodder and as insurance against any govt effort to eliminate it.

"My point is not that life was "better" or "worse" for civilians under the LTTE, but that one cannot take for granted that an SLA victory is in the best interests of the civilians, even in the long-term."

Then what would be in the civilians' best interest- and how do you propose to *realistically* get there??"My understanding of the passage I quoted is that UTHR was opining that, in those particular instances (plural) of civilians being killed by SLA shelling, it was "unlikely" (to use their word) that the the Tigers were "firing from their midst" (i.e. the midst of the civilians), i.e. the shelling was unprovoked."

I make a distinction between attacking LTTE vehicles (which would kill leaders and bring the war that much closer to an end) and saturating the entire area with shells and rockets- the 2nd leading to a real "bloodbath"- which would bring the war even closer to an end but would kill all the civilians.

"You did not respond to the recent HRW report, which is in many ways more harrowing"

Why didn't the UTHR mention that?

"There are many people who would know nothing about the atrocities of the LTTE and SLA, if it wasn't for AI."

And there are many people who know nothing substantial about the LTTE, the SLA, and this war as a whole after reading only AI.

U know WHO! said...

Calvin,

That channel 4 maggot got wide publicity just because SL expelled him. It is not that good. There are many other ways (cannot mention in public domain) to take care of MF like that. These guardian angles will sell their own mothers for publicity and recognition.

That this is a racist war is not a secret. I would not go so far as to use the word genocide, but it would not surprise me to see it used in future international legal action against the government. At any rate, the government itself has plastered the countryside with enormous placards lauding the military with the slogan, in Sinhala, the language of the Sinhalese majority to which I too, belong, stating: "Soldiers, our race salutes you!" Not "the people", not "the country", but the race. And all these placards exhibit the stated provenance of the Ministry of Defence or other government institutions.

Dear "Yogananthan" B

"We don't change our name depending on the crowd."

But you changed your name to pass as a Tamil.

In TLA forum I wanted to annoy the LTTE supporters the same way Sinhalese here choose handles like "Velavan Master" and "Pottu Amman." However I later chose a handle to reflect my real identity, hence the name wije both here and in puligal.blogspot.com (which is an LTTE blog- disproves your argument that I choose handles based purely on the crowd).

"I can guess that you are a Northern Tamil racist."

That's funny, earlier you had written

"I don't know you are Singhala or Tamil and I don't care."

Obviously you do care what I am!

"The type that called fellow Tamils "kallathoni"."

There are also Sinhalese who refer to upcountry Tamils as "kallathoni." Konappu Bandara above just referred to "Malayali kallathonia." Seems that you prefer to be called kallathoni by Sinhalese than by Tamils, because you are not even Tamil but a Sinhala pretending to be Tamil.

RT and Wijayapala

// one cannot take for granted that an SLA victory is in the best interests of the civilians, even in the long-term.//

1. LTTE must be eradicated completely for good health of all Sri Lankans.
2. Tamils will have peace in their mind when this conflict is over.
3. Majority of Tamil civilians are not worried about political out comes, if they can lead decent life with farming, fishing and industry as they have done decades before LTTE came into the picture.
4. Tamils will have secure future now because Sinhalese also have learned their lessons in the hard way and IC is watching.

Scum of Sri Lanka (Jaathiye Paahara Ballo)

Featured scum twins of the Day

Ranil Wickramasinghe and Laksman Kiriella

Having lost the 19th consecutive election, this pair see no bounds in their anti Sri Lankan acts. The top scum leaves to Europe to complain about his sorry full status to his white masters. His twin tries to portray such acts of treason as a major achievement. Of course, it is some achievement for those who compete for the top scum seat. Unfortunately, his white masters are having a difficulty in gauging the democratic will of Sri Lankans to keep these scum out of any national office till eternity. I wish his white masters good luck trying to change the leadership of Sri Lanka through these scum.

Saman said...

Guys, I am not a great fan of western media sponsord geopolitcs (the new big guy in the town). Howver CNN is asking "should Sri Lankan issue need international intervention" - as if CNN does not know this.

Now there is no place to give the comment "bloody MF international community already did for centuries" - and that is the problem.

They want a "Yes" or "No".

When I voted Yes:81%, NO:19%.

Even though it might be difficult, 15 minutes of our time per day will help Sri Lanka. As we are in different countries, could we form a single voice to counter Racist, genocidal Tamil Diaspora?

Could we start collecting all the news bits that Tamilnut put out and various Tamil gundas spill out to the world - tag them by the name.
Can we hold them legally for prolonging the suffering of humans held in the human shield? Like crimes against humanity?

Finally- my first time around here. But I am in expressbuzz mostly - (Bindu Piribakaran) -he.he. I am now Vezapillai not the fat pig in the NFZ.

Vezapillai Prabakaran said...

I think may be we need to attack the Son god right next to him.
May be we need to flip the situation around.
If we can get a large number of special troops real close to the fat pig- he may blow himself up - saving us the trouble- but we loose the intel.
Also, we will loose our boys at least some. That is difficult. But if the LTTE shell - they may think twice as low rankers are scared shit of hitting the Fatpig.

If we time it for quick in and quick out thing may work. I think we can turn around and say "IC forced Sri Lanka's hand as their method has been prolonging the suffering of the people and the GOSL has to protect its citizens from LTTE racist, genocidal terrorist.

Vezapillai Prabakaran said...

BTW, keep repeating to any non sri lankan, that LTTE is a racist, genocidal terrorist organization that is involved in drug smuggling and prostitution.

Once we get it out few times it will get registered.

Ok keep voting for the CNN thing. Numbers are going up. Even 50 - 50 is better than over 75%. Clean your cookies- but be forewarned - they can filter multiple voting from the ip address.

last post for the day for me - today. I hope we can get some of these "hitha hoda moda" sri lankan diplomats back to SL and get people who can speak to the point without being verbose.

Everything is important- their posture etc. Even our leaders need to be non-emotional when stating the case.
I am not impressed- actually sad that battle field gains -at great cost is nullified by bumbling idiots in the diplomatic core. I like the Toronto and EU ones. I have seen the London and Washington DC. - not very articulate.

Saman,

CNN Poll is not a Scientific Poll. It can be cheated (as you yourself publicly suggest), so it is better to leave it at that.

Write to CNN saying that there is a huge campaign by LTTE in their blogs to vote and let them know that therefore the Poll does not show a 'natural distribution' of opinion.

BJP Leader OPPOSED TO SETHU SAMUDRAM Project



[ I won’t allow Ramar Sethu demolition: Uma BhartiR Guhambika
May 11, 2009

CHENNAI: “I am ready to be hanged, but I will not allow Ramar Sethu to be demolished,” Bharatiya Janshakthi Party leader Uma Bharti said here on Sunday.

Campaigning for BJP South Chennai candidate La Ganesan, the fire-brand Hindutva leader said: “We always fought to protect Ramar Sethu. We are not against the Sethusamudram project. But either shift it or, if that it is not possible it, cancel it. On this issue, former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is also with us.”

After her acrimonious parting of ways with the BJP, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister floated her own outfit. Hence, her offer to campaign for the saffron party during the Lok Sabha elections raised some eyebrows. “For me, in the nation’s interest Advaniji is the only option. We could not support Mayawati or Mulayam Singh ideologically,” she told The New Indian Express. “There is personal respect also for Advaniji even though I separated and formed my own party. He is like my father,” she said. “Again, it is not for personal reasons alone but ideological as well. Because the things which I believe in like Ramar Sethu, Ram Mandir, nationalism, Hindutva and review of economic policies, they are in the BJP manifesto. Then there is price rise. I think price rise is due to corruption and not due to any international situation. I think only Advaniji can deal with all these issues.”

Asked whether she would rejoin the BJP, she said her party was for a pact with the saffron outfit. Uma Bharti stopped twice to address voters at Dasarathapuram in Vadapalani. ]

UN Security Council refuses to discuss killing in Sri Lanka

Tue, May 12 01:49 AM
New York, May 12 (DPA) Top diplomats from Britain and France were rebuffed Monday when some UN Security Council members refused their request to discuss the fighting in Sri Lanka, which killed more than 400 people during the past weekend.

The council members that opposed taking up the issue were not named publicly.

Foreign Ministers David Miliband of Britain and Bernard Kouchner of France were also joined by Austria's Michael Spindelegger, the federal minister for European and international affairs, to protest inaction by the 15-nation council at UN headquarters in New York.

'We are more than shocked, we cannot support the way in this particular place while people are suffering and dying,' Kouchner told reporters, showing his indignation.

When asked which council members opposed their request, Miliband said, 'We can only speak for ourselves. Others can speak for themselves.'

'We are clear, this is an issue that the UN Security Council should address, it involves major civilian loss of lives and distress,' Miliband said. 'It does have ramifications for the region. We as European members of the UN Security Council, we believe that the issues belong here.'

Both Miliband and Kouchner said they were ready to tell council members 'what they have seen' in Sri Lanka, but apparently they were not allowed to.

As a rule and unless a crisis is already on the council's agenda, a majority of nine council members have to approve a new issue be put on the agenda of discussion. Some council members have opposed discussion over matters they consider domestic matters.

China in the past opposed discussion of Myanmar's political crisis and Russia opposed discussion of Chechnya, where armed opposition was fighting Russian troops for independence.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Monday urged warring parties in Sri Lanka to respect international humanitarian efforts protecting

civilians following reports of the weekend massacre of over 400 civilians.

'Thousands of Sri Lankans have already died in the past several months due to the conflict, and more still remain in grave danger,' Ban said, adding that he was appalled at the killing.

'The reckless disrespect shown by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) for the safety of civilians has led to thousands of people remaining trapped in the area,' Ban said.

In Colombo, the UN said more than 400 people were killed and more than 1,200 injured in the fighting over the weekend and the government and rebels accused each other of the killing in a narrow land strip near the coast of the Mullaitivu district, 395 km northeast of the capital.

'We can call it a bloodbath,' UN spokesman in Colombo Gordon Weiss told DPA.

He explained that although he had no confirmation of who was responsible for the killings, both parties were responsible for the well-being of civilians caught in the conflict.

Recently Army found LTTE mortars filled with White Phospherous. However, there is no much publicity given by GOSL to it.

Any idea who supported us in the UN resolution? I think it is China and Russia. I dont know what we can do to thank them. Cant we make them Most favored nations and have preferential duties for imports from these countries? I know trade with Sl would be nothing for them. But the gesture is important. Are they entiled for visa free access to Sri Lanka? If not shouldn't we give that? Also individually we need to thank the Russian or Chinese we come across in our work life or personal life. I don't think any country has helped us in the pastthis much. Also we should make sure that we do not support ANY resolutions against these countries for next 100 years. And be against the resolutions of the LTTE supporters like UK and France.

Cant we organise thank you ceromonies in those countries. LTTE supporters cannot counter that as it will not be tolarated there. To start with we should send emmisaries to these countries to thank them and update them fully of what is happening and how LTTE is abusing the situtaion.

It is interesting to note MR's assersion (following that) that country is out of danger as far as the division is concerned. I think he has lined up China as the main partner and Russia is doing a supporting role.

He also seems to have checkmate Chinese and Indian interests in the rejion for the benefit of Sri Lanka.

Earth Moving equipment can NOT be easily smuglled like arms as can not be dismantled and quite heavy to carry in trawlers etc

The Earth Moving equipment was given to LTTE by NGO's....later they nicely said they were taken by LTTE by Force

According to latest military reports, the initial forward military thrust was followed by the induction of Special Forces resulting in a rapid wipe-out of the remaining terrorist resistance in the area. Troops have advanced 300m further into LTTE defences after consolidating positions at the Wadduvakal causeway, military said.

They shamelessly claim there is a humanitarian crisis here in SL after even visiting to those camps and having had talks with the people. We say ,US or UN needn't worry about Sri Lanka. We can solve our problems as well as protect our people . The best they could do at the moment is to mind their own business . What right do they have to talk about humanitarian issues or whatever in Sri Lanka any way?
Sri Lankan troops die everyday in hundreds trying to save the country, only because the international community have pressurized GoSL to stop using heavy weaponry ,but LTTE is freely using them against troops of GoSL ,as well as on innocent civilians.
It is funny that UN is so worried about Sri Lanka , arn't they worried about the bloodbath the US did in Afghanistan ? that also "by Mistake". What a mistake to do with all these advance technologies. Those bastards have used white phosphorus against innocent civilians.Arn't usage of such kind of Weaponry is banned as per Int. Laws? On the other hand if the US and west EU is so worried about Tamil civilians in north , why aren't they coming forward to send aid. Innocent Sinhalese civil people in south do the collections from their salaries to feed those people and give them shelter and some cloths everyday. UN / US or West EU haven't done much so far except for the big talks .

Totally agree. I think our defence guys are doing excellent job. I don't think there is a web site comparable to this in the world. But only thing is we are a bit slow. We need to anticipate and act. Should not wait. If we don't have info, write about it any ways and say we are waiting for the videos, sound clips e.t.c. Publish it anyway and give it to the media.

One of the best ones is taking children to the Canadian highway. We can get quite a lot of propaganda from that one. That was an appalling thing to do. We should remind this in every interview, how LTTE supporters does not care about children. We should use this the same way Haward government used Children overboard affair.

I also have a really good propaganda Idea. But can't publish it here. If there is some people who are SL propaganda here, I would email it.

How the hell is this guy keep on escaping when every one around him is dyeing. Hopefully he will be tried for treason when we capture the fuck***

I think there would be one more propaganda drive by Tamil Net soon.

59 Div cross over LTTE built earth bund at Wadduvakal : capture 300m of territory

The 59 Division troops led by Brigadier Prasanna Silva have stepped-up into the on-going hostage rescue operation, with initial advances made by 6 SLLI and 12 SLLI infantrymen crossing the LTTE constructed earth bund cum ditch North of the Wadduvakal causeway, early this morning (May 12).

According to latest military reports, the initial forward military thrust was followed by the induction of Special Forces resulting in a rapid wipe-out of the remaining terrorist resistance in the area. Troops have advanced 300m further into LTTE defences after consolidating positions at the Wadduvakal causeway, military said.

The capture of the causeway and adjacent territory is of immense tactical importance considering context of the ground situation, a defence observer said adding that this would inevitably open-up another alternative escape routes for the civilian held hostage by LTTE terrorists.

Meanwhile, three LTTE suicide bombers hiding inside underground bunkers have blown themselves as advancing 58 Division troops closed-in on them. At least 10 terrorists were killed and several soldiers injured due to the explosions, security forces further said. The injured soldiers were evacuated for medical treatment, according to military.

Furthermore, 58 Div troops have uncovered 25 slain LTTE bodies, 20 T-56 assault riffles, 01 LMG assault gun and an I-com set following hours of fierce fighting ensued in general area Karayanmullivaikkal.

This government doctor did more damage than VP. He is the new LTTE spokesmen after Rasaiya.

toiletnet's cheap lies,

Moshe, you are thinking along the same lines as I.

I hope we would some how manage to find the charred body of this doctor when we enter the NFZ. I mean he seem to be the type of the guy who would self immolate.

Classical aerodynamics predicts BEYOND DISPUTE that birds can't fly, and passive boomerangs can't return.

So, trot-in our experts after they are back from the walk-about... experiments always trump theory.

Hooray for the aboriginal clan elders!

Haha, there is a way to trick the system. But can't give it here. It is manual, and takes 15 seconds to do it, but allows repeated voting. Most probably should be able to programme it as well.

YAY. Ananda-USA : That's excellent news !!!!

I mailed that link (CNN poll) to every SL relative/friend I know...

GUYS, KEEP DOING IT, DO MASS EMAIL, WE CAN VIN THAT POLL SOON! JUST LIKE WE COUNTERED THE OPRAH CRAP LAST TIME...
----------------------
FOR F***'S SAKE, MOD/GOSL PR PEOPLE: Wake UP, and post some nice stories about LTTE SUPPORTERS IN CANADA PUSHING KIDS IN FRONT OF RIOT POLICE...

CAN SOME ONE CONTACT SLP and see if perhaps THEY can get that news on to the media? Regular Canadians are already noticing it!

@THUSITA: thanks for acknowledging my previous post, mate!

Spearhead said...

I am emailing gota and MOD about publishing that story about the latest LTTE rally in Toronto!

guys,
Please feel free to cut/paste my post about what to do to PRE-counter LTTE propaganda and use the FEEDBACK form of the MOD wensite and email/write MOD; if a lot of us bombard (hehe) them with the same email with the SAME suggestion on using that story for PR, i am sure some dude/dudette @ MOD will wake up and do it .

WILL YOU GUYS PLEASE DO THAT?
IF YOU NEED JUST POST HERE AND I WILL POST WHAT YOU SHOULD CUT/PASTE ONTO THE MOD FEEDBACK FORUM.

PLEASE DO THIS, GUYS. We need to give the PR dudes @ SL-MOD a tiny kick in the butt, to spur them on!!!!

U know WHO! said...

Guys,

If LTTE leadership is planning to flee at the last moment; they have to do it tonight. They may make a dash! Their last opportunity to escape is today, if they are planning on one.

I hope that SLN, SLAF and SLA are ready!!

Also, by tomorrow dusk we may hear the good news!!!

Thusitha said...

The hospital hit has gone to BBC. Can't the army find out the location of the hospital and show that it has not been hit from UAV photos? They say it was hit by a single shell. If we can't, we should find out why the doctors are alive, when the hospital keep on getting shelled.
The only problem with this question is they would kill the doctors just to get the propaganda out of it.

LRRU said...

guys don't U think that LTTE is also fully aware about the upcoming onslaught.....its quite obviouse.... but their silence shows that they are upto a plan as well.......remember LTTE is good in making suprises unless SF has a totally defferent Suprise than we ever thought of........mmmm ,,,mmmm...mmmmm....can not think of any ....

Spearhead said...

shit; as can be expected it's on the damn front page too! LOL; it's amazing how childish the conduct of BBC is...
GOSL should really put out an OFFICIAL statement condemning the BBC in the highest degree possible !!

at least it mentioned the GOSL suggests that statements from the "doctors" can be fake...

LRRU said...

Also "LTTE has Nothing to LOOSE" but "GOSL CAN NOT LOOSE" seems dangerouse from both ends

U know WHO! said...

This whole fricking ealam struggle is lies and damn lies nothing but lies. So, it is not a surprise at the last moment biggest and desperate attempts will make.

Do not worry stay cool to see the final fire works!

LRRU said...

Also Don't U think KP would be happy to see Prabha's End so could enjoy all the Money ......if VP is their he will have to share....Food for thought

LTTE Money May Get VAIKO Elected!

BAD NEWS, IF TRUE, Guys!

[ Vaiko ahead of the restGokul Vannan
May 12, 2009

VIRUDHUNAGAR: If there is one candidate whose popularity cuts across caste and communual lines in each an every Assembly segment of Virudhunagar Lok Sabha constituency, it is MDMK founder, Vaiko.

Ranging from industrialists to industrial labourers to small farmers, every socio-economic segment see his a leader worth representing them in Parliament. ‘Can you show me any other leader in the State who can address our problem as effectively as Vaiko’ asks Karupayyan, a 63 year-old man from the constituency. Through his eloquence, Vaiko has already captured the voters’ imagination as the saviour of Sri Lankan Tamils. His image as a champion of the cause since 1970s has also helped him. ‘I have heard his speech as a student of VOC College, Tuticorin, highlighting the Eelam Tamils problem in 1977. Even today, despite facing so many problems from the Government for his support for the issue, he is continuing his fight for the cause,’’ said Sankaranarayanan, (52) a leader of Thevar Peravai, Virudhunagar district.

Apart from Vaiko’s speech, around 1.5 lakh CDs that have been distributed by organisations supporting Sri Lankan Tamil has swung the voters in Vaiko’s favour. ‘Even I am a DMK supporter but I will not vote for the Congress, which is helping the Sri Lankan Government to kill Tamils,’’ said a Government employee. Besides the Lankan issue, on which the other two major candidates, Manik Tagore of the Congress and DMDK’s K Pandia Rajan are silent.

Even caste arithmetic is in Vaiko’s favour. Mukulathurs will vote for him as he is in the side of AIADMK and Nayakars will mostly favour him. Even if AINMK leader, actor Karthick, cuts into the Mukulathur votes, the loss will not exceed 20 per cent. ]

Ananda,

Are you still sure that U.S. want Sonia to win, and that is why U.S. is pressuring us? If this is the case, why is BBC and CNN is putting so much news to Stir things up? CNN is pro Obama and I am sure if Obama team put a word, they wouldn't be going so hard on us.

Need to finish the job BEFORE elections are done/decisions made...
