Poddu calls from beyond the grave?

Some of DefenceWire's readers have asked us again about the fate of Poddu Amman.

The reason for this new-found doubt is due to newspaper (local and foreign) articles indicating a) Poddu's body has not been recovered b) Army was still searching for his remains, c) he may have escaped and d) he is now in SLA custody and revealing identities of remaining LTTE spies.

While the first two points, that his body was never found and that Army is searching for it has some truth in it, the latter points are completely false.

Poddu's body has not been recovered and the Army, like they are supposed to, are searching for ALL that is LTTE. If Poddu's remains were indeed recovered, they would now be beyond any form of recognition.

Poddu's death is a near certainty. Latest eyewitness reports say he was alive on 17th evening-18th dawn. Poddu was subsequently trapped inside the box in Vellamullaivaikkaal when at dawn on 18th May 2009, the Special Forces backed by heavy armour moved in.

The remains of a large number of LTTE cadres was in pieces after the small patch of land was decimated by heavy fire soon after the escape of the 80,500 odd civilians.

A cadre who surrendered to the Army had earlier mentioned that Poddu was killed by a shell in a direct hit and that his remains were buried in an unmarked grave. What is evident, beyond reasonable doubt is that Poddu never escaped the battlefield alive.

The other rumours that Poddu's status as a MIC captive and tipping off authorities about LTTE spies in the Army etc is inaccurate. Many of these stories point to a Lieutenant Colonel from the Army and one random report pointed to the capture of an electronic goods salesman in Colombo.

The arrest of the Lieutenant Colonel was forthcoming due to a number of tip-offs. The officer, formerly of the Special Forces (late 90s), was part of a unit that hunted down Sinhalese youth during the time of the second JVP uprising. He was also attached to Military Intelligence at that time.

Fresh doubts about the man arose in 2006-7 and now, with much less of a burden to fight a war, the Army has time to purge its rank and file of similar parasites as it had done continuously over the last half a decade or so.

This, again has nothing to do with Poddu Amman. In any event, Poddu Amman would not have known of these spies as there were other much junior cadres operating as their handlers.

Some of your articles get quoted in some international media on web. SL is now going through post war transition period. SL is under heavy attack on HR violations, genocide, civilian massacres, war crimes etc etc. I think you (perhaps dA) should give your input to the media.. (again as usual GSL is far behind countering this propaganda..)

DW,

Thanks for the update.

Sunday Times has listed the following leaders in SLA custody.

If you are at liberty to comment, are these the only leaders left ?

Given the fact that Prabhakaran's parents were discovered relatively recently in a camp, is there a possibility that there are more high level people or their relatives to be discovered in the camps ?



"Top Tiger leaders in security forces net

By Chris Kamalendran
Some top Tiger guerrillas are now in the military net after they were located in camps housing internally displaced people.

Among those are Karikalan (former eastern province political wing leader and subsequently in charge of the economic disivion), Yogaratnam Yogi (former spokesman of the LTTE), V. Balakumar (former EROS MP turned advisor to the LTTE), Lawrence Tilagar (a former spokesman of the LTTE, a one time head of LTTE office in Paris and later in charge of the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation), Thangan (former Deputy political section leader), Ilamparithi (former head of the political section for Jaffna district), Elilan (former Trincomalee political wing leader), Papa (former head of the LTTE sports division), Puvannan (former head of the administrative division of the LTTE), Gannam (deputy international head).

Military spokesman Udaya Nanayakkara said he could not confirm or deny reports about the presence of the senior LTTE members in the camps, saying that the process of identification was still continuing.He said he could confirm that Thamilani, head of the (Women’s) political wing was in custody.

CASC said...

DW,

One more question for you:

Do you know anything about the British Tamil woman who was supposedly working as a medic in a LTTE field hospital. She supposedly made a phone call from the camp to her sister in the UK.

One of the claims or idle boasts that Miliband made in Sri Lanka was that they had their own independent sources of information from the NFZ.

I would think that this woman is a spy working for the British Government

What most of our migrants forgot!This is indeed true. People appreciate only the icing on the cake not where it was baked first.

In 2005, almost fifty years after he left Oxford , Mr Lakshman Kadiragamar' s portrait was unveiled at the Oxford Union. This was a great honour bestowed by the Oxford Union on only 15 others in its 183 year history.

Mr Kadirgamar had this to say about that event;

'......I would like to, if I may, to assume that I could share the honour with the people of my country, Sri Lanka . I had my schooling there, my first university was there, I went to Law College there and by the time I came to Oxford as a postgraduate student, well, I was
relatively a matured person. Oxford was the icing on the cake ...but the cake was baked at home ...

New Peelam song!!!

I dreamed a peelam in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that Sun God would never die
I dreamed that Kali Amma would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And bombs were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No maveer song unsung, no mutton curry untasted

But the Lions come at night
With their voices scary as thunder
As they turn your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame

And still I dream peelam'd come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my peelam would be
So different from the hell I`m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now Gota has killed the dream I dreamed

@ Dead VP vs living VP

Its true a fraction of LTTE diaspora still believe VP is alive while some fraction of media also fueling the claim. SLA MI need to calculate what would be best for SL: (a) Convincing the diaspora VP is dead or (b) keep them guessing, with possibly two sides conflicting - one for dead VP (KP fraction) and one for living VP (Castro fraction). If SLA MI think (a) to follow they should consider doing DNA tests with VP's parents who are now under SLA custody and with his Canadian sister or Indian sample if possible. If they follow to (b) then no such propaganda required (but still they can do testing if they want.)

@ Dead PA vs living PA

As GSL don't have poddu's body I don't think they can make official claim for his death. This makes Indians keep the case open. This might help in dealings with big brother at least in legal formalities involving LTTE/ devolution packages if India tries to influence.

@ Remaining leaders in IDP camps

It is bloody hilarious one time judges, police heads, etc are now being "IDP"s in tamiz eezaam.. This is the golden opportunity GSL to trace and arrest all the remaining leaders, from top to bottom. If he resettlement program is ready then GSL can't delay it saying screening is not completed. So better be hurry.

@ IDPs

Longer the time GSL is going to keep the IDPs inside the camps more the blame from IC/int. media. Thus its better to start the process (demining, gun down remaining cadres in jungles, finding buried weapons, arresting LTTE cadres in IDP camps, building infrastructure - roads, houses etc).

/Pro-LTTE demonstrations cost UK Police 8 million poundsJun 2 (PTI) Metropolitan Police spent a whopping 8 million pounds to control the 43-day long demonstration outside the British Parliament by pro-LTTE supporters, a top police official said. The supporters of Tamil Tigers were demanding an end to the war between LTTE and Sri Lankan Army and justice to the Tamilians in the island country./

8,000,000 GBP = 1,513,094,050 LKR

1,513,094,050 LKR/250,000 = 6052 LKR

This is more than enough for food for 1 month for all the IDPs. What a waste of tax payer money?

If we add the extra police cost for Canada as well then two months food for all the IDPs.

DiASSpora know very well that the GSL and people in SL will provide all the facilities no matter how hard it is. So not a single penny donated towards IDPs in camps.

/'UN did not underestimate Sri Lanka death toll'

Jun 2 (AFP) UN chief Ban Ki-moon on Monday categorically rejected allegations the world body had deliberately underestimated the death toll in the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka. "I categorically reject -- repeat categorically -- any suggestion that the United Nations has deliberately underestimated any figures," he told the UN General Assembly.

* * *

Commenting on the report, UN spokeswoman Michele Montas told a press briefing Monday: "The number of 20,000 is not a UN number."

She said she checked with UN officials in Colombo earlier in the day and the response was that "they have absolutely no idea where that number came from."/

Ninja,

"What's your point? The conventional war was over on May 20(?). But the fighting will go on jungles and I don't know when it will be over."

Point is that after every successful war- especially those involving national survival- there is generally a demobilization. Millions upon millions of soldiers demobilized after WWI and WWII- so why should SL be any different???

I've been reading the news and have not seen any evidence of continued fighting. Instead I've seen reports of Tigers surrendering and more military hardware being unearthed. In other words, this war is over.

"In analogous case, you can argue; as war is over, LTTE is over, no threat is existing, from what SLA is going to defend us? (So no need of defensive divisions either.)"

That's a very good point, Ninja.

"If we had a sufficient, decent SLDF (like today) your paranoid sinhala racists will not come to streets to attack to tamil civilians (if that happened in 70s.)"

1400 SLA soldiers were killed in the 1996 Mullaitivu battle and yet there were no anti-Tamil riots. The cause of Sinhala paranoia therefore runs a little deeper.

The LTTE in 1983 consisted of a few hoodlums who got lucky and exploded a single landmine under a single jeep. We need to make sure that similar lucky strikes in the future won't provoke the same level of murder and looting as what happened in 83.

If you are arguing that we need 500,000 SLA to defend Tamils against Sinhala mobs, then your argument might make sense.

"For better intel wing you need more people as well.."

Intelligence work requires quality far more than quantity. 500 Sinhala-only-speaking soldiers have the same intelligence value as one Tamil-speaker who can interact with local communities and gain their trust. Non-Pashto-speaking US soldiers in Afghanistan are learning that the hard way.

"If we are not prepared threat can come from any where; hill country, jaffna, east, wanni, tamilnadu, india, west.. to name few."

Can you enlighten me what threat currently exists in the upcountry, Jaffna, Eastern Province or the Wanni? Are you afraid of the Tamil civilians who live there?

If you really want to secure the N-E in its current state (i.e. no conventional threat, no LTTE), a better investment would be in police since the SLA is not intended to handle law-and-order issues. In fact, the govt can establish a program where demobilized SLA can be retrained to be policemen/women. Don't forget that the SL police played a very important role tracking down terrorists in Colombo and other parts of the south. They can now play that role in the N-E.

A threat from India or the West would be extremely different from a threat from within SL. 500,000 SLA won't stop an enemy air force from conducting another parippu drop over Jaffna or a navy from blockading Colombo. I've asked this question many times before but none of the "defense enthusiasts" have a good answer for that.

"Our leaders (JRJ etc) couldn't understand 'where will the threat come from'."

If the 1983 riots never took place, we would never have had a civil war. Prabhakaran would eventually have gotten caught or shot dead without 200,000 civilians getting caught in the cross-fire. JR had created the threat and we had to pay the price for it.

The military we have currently will not stop India or the West from pushing us around, as I pointed out before. The SLA we have can participate in UN peacekeeping or maybe even fighting in Afghanistan in return for US support, but I'm afraid that with the LTTE gone it would be pretty useless for most other roles.

Thanks for the article. I had wondered what happened to these a$$holes!!

Karikalan was the driving force between the mass explusion of Muslims from Jaffna in 1991. Ilamparithi was the clown in Jaffna who implemented this policy.

Elilan was the turd in Trincomalee who was making loud war cries in 2006 before and during Mavil Aru. He disappeared after that and I am curious to hear what he has to say about Mavil Aru now.

Balakumar had joined the LTTE believing that with his superior intellect he could take control of the organization. Things didn't turn out as planned.

Thilagar long ago had boasted to the SL Ambassador in France that the LTTE would win because it would erode the will of the Sri Lankan state.

I really wish I could hear what these goofballs have to say now, after all the big talk they had used before. I hope the govt is taking care of these national treasures.

CASC said...

For the decades of the 70s up to 83, Sri Lanka had a ceremonial army of 11,000. The Standing Orders of the Sri Lanka Army during the post independence era was to old out for 24 hours until Indian assistance arrived. Obviously all that changed with India's role in
arming Tamil militant groups, which could happen again in the future with someone like Karunannidi's daughter who was an LTTE organizer in Malaysia at one time.


The Indian trained Tamil militant contingent at the start of eelam war I was bigger than the Sri Lanka Army of that era. There were over 70 militant groups at one point in Sri lanka.

Even with a two hundred thousand army we have not been able to find LTTE stragglers who have infiltrated places like Buttala. The point of a three hundred thousand army is not to invade any country but to make it very difficult for any country to invade Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is the only country in the Indian subcontinent that has not had generational insurgencies. Some of the insurgencies raging in the Indian subcontinent, particularly in the N-E states, have been going on since independence.

A strong army and a navy is an absolute pre-requisite for Sri Lanka's survival. Like Bangladesh which is the single biggest troop contributor to the UN, Sri lanka will probably have a large UN contingent to defry some of the costs associated with a large standing army.

CASC said...

Yogi bear, head prefect of Jaffna college, suave and sophisticated and English speaking, was one of the people who conned Premadasa into surrendering the policemen to the LTTE. He has supposedly negotiating with Premadasa right up to the point where he boarded a SLAF helicopter and disappeared. The Foreign Minister of that time said that Anton Balasingham had also given personal assuarences that they would be safe.

/Point is that after every successful war- especially those involving national survival- there is generally a demobilization. Millions upon millions of soldiers demobilized after WWI and WWII- so why should SL be any different???/

Just because there was demobilization in WW1 and 2 we need not to have the same in SL. Why should SL have to do the same? How many SL need for SLDF depends on the assessment done by our experts (SF, GR etc).

/I've been reading the news and have not seen any evidence of continued fighting./

I've been reading the news and seen '11 cadres KIA in east'...

/If you are arguing that we need 500,000 SLA to defend Tamils against Sinhala mobs, then your argument might make sense./

Where did I say we need 500,000 SLA? SF said we need 300,000 SLA. So 500,000 should be total SLDF which includes SLA, SLN, SLAF, SLP and CDF.

/Intelligence work requires quality far more than quantity./

Of course we need quality. But this is not a movie one super star can do every thing - we need quantity as well.

/Can you enlighten me what threat currently exists in the upcountry, Jaffna, Eastern Province or the Wanni?/

This was about future possible threats not existing ones which I am not not aware of. (If I missed I should include south, west and other provinces too.)

/Are you afraid of the Tamil civilians who live there?/

NO

/If you really want to secure the N-E in its current state (i.e. no conventional threat, no LTTE), a better investment would be in police since the SLA is not intended to handle law-and-order issues./

Fine.

Defense enthusiasts, I guess have answered many times too. Expansion is not limited to SLA its for SLDF. (see my abouve answer related to 500,000 and also the CASC's comment.)

wijayapala said...

Dear CASC,

"The Indian trained Tamil militant contingent at the start of eelam war I was bigger than the Sri Lanka Army of that era. There were over 70 militant groups at one point in Sri lanka."

Small correction- the total number of Tamil militants by 1985 (middle of Eelam War I)- NOT the beginning of Eelam War I in 1983- had outnumbered the SLA. Between 1983 and 1985, tens of thousands of Tamil youth joined the militant groups, which were but tiny gangs before 1983.

It is true that the Indians trained these militants, but it is equally true that there would not have been so many Tamil militants if not for the 1983 riots.

It is for this reason alone that safety for minorities is necessary for national security.

"Even with a two hundred thousand army we have not been able to find LTTE stragglers who have infiltrated places like Buttala."

Excellent observation. Hence the need for intelligence over numbers.

"The point of a three hundred thousand army is not to invade any country but to make it very difficult for any country to invade Sri Lanka."

The only problem with this argument is that no foreign country had invaded Sri Lanka since the British, and it is unlikely that any country even India will invade to occupy the island.

India provides a great case in point- it sent its army in LAST, only after 1) building up Tamil militants as proxy forces and 2) sending the air force on a parippu drop in Jaffna. It was the Indian ***Air Force,*** not the Army which brought an end to SLDF anti-LTTE operations in 1987. The Indian Army came only after JR signed an agreement with Rajiv Gandhi to bring in the IPKF.

300,000 SLA might have stopped the British in 1815 but it won't stop the Indian Air Force or Navy in the 21st century.

"A strong army and a navy is an absolute pre-requisite for Sri Lanka's survival."

Strong SLAF and SLN are absolute prerequisites for survival against an external threat. Visionary leadership and an effective and fair law and order system are absolute prerequisites for internal security.

The SLA comes last, only when all else fails.

Please also read my above comments to CASC.

"Just because there was demobilization in WW1 and 2 we need not to have the same in SL. Why should SL have to do the same?"

Because maintaining an oversized SLA will be very expensive and will divert resources from other areas (such as SLN, SLAF, reconstruction). Why is Mahinda trying to get an IMF loan if we already have enough money to pay for everything????

"How many SL need for SLDF depends on the assessment done by our experts (SF, GR etc)."

Sarath Fonseka wants a large SLA because he's the Army Chief- why would he ask for a smaller SLA??? Gotabaya is former SLA and might be biased, but he also might be afraid of opposing Fonseka. That is a scary thought.

"I've been reading the news and seen '11 cadres KIA in east'..."

How many cadres in the north, where the bulk of the SLA is???

Eastern Province has only 2 SLA divisions (vs ~14 divisions in Northern Province), and it is able to maintain security.

/Are you afraid of the Tamil civilians who live there?/

"NO
"

Then why need 300,000 SLA for nearly non-existent LTTE?

"Because we want the nearly non-existent threat to be permanently non-existent and also already existing and/or non-existing threats also to be non-existent!"

The only way you can completely eliminate internal threats permanently is to have a political system where nobody feels like a 2nd class citizen. Without this system, even 1,000,000-man SLA will not be enough to bring permanent peace.

"Seems you don't have question about expansion of SLN, SLAF and SLP both in terms of quantity of quality."

You can't improve SLN or SLAF simply by recruiting more people. Both of these (especially SLAF) require a high expertise in technology, which you can only get through an advanced economy.

We will never get an advanced economy if half the national budget is spent on the SLA (and we need to beg the IMF for the other half).

I always fought for MR, GR and SF in these blogs whenever people were trying discredit them claiming Mig deal and many other nonsense. I had mainly two reasons for doing that. First, I had faith in them and the second; I believed they were the key to get rid of terrorism. They gave the leadership, stayed in the course and fulfilled their responsibility. I greatly respect them for that.
But all need to be watchful after this great victory. We may end up taking a wrong path. Political henchmen, who are trying to get whatever from their political masters are in the over praising mode. "The Island" editor discusses it much better than me. Please read his editorial.

Time to tell the truth Mahinda, tell them that LTTE killed their sons and give the family their sons bodies back. And the award of low caste Sinhala shit goes to...the Rajapakse Brothers

SL ASSHOLE said...

Some Sinhala supports says that KILLING of their people and their leader is sin then what they did to tamil?? if you start counting the death from the start of conflict, the death of tamilians is 10 times more then what LTTE killed. LTTE as a freedom fighters, only killed those LEADERS who killed tamil people and not much SINHALA people. That is the mistake LTTE did and now I feel they should have been acted like a TERRORIST and killed whoever they found a SINHALAs. This should have put them better FIGHTER then what LTTE has done.

SL ASSHOLE said...

There is a saying in Sinhala "Sinhalaya Modaya Kevum Kanda Yodaya" (Sinhalese are born fools and they are crazy about Kevum(a sweet)! Well, they just had Kevum with the victory. Being modayos think they have defeated Tamils. Hope they realize they have just defeated the LTTE not the Tamils. Sinhalese could defeat the tamils if they solve the root causes of the war. Else we all be commenting 20 years from now. Hope they realize and the above saying proves wrong.

Sri Lanks is like no other!!

Now they have a "concentration camps" for the "hostages" and demands money from Interantional donors, but demands that the the donors have no say, saying that it is an "internal matter" There are some rougue countries who are supporting the terrorist government. Any body who talks justice in support of the Tamils are called "white Tigers". As for the glorious history someone is referring to I would point out that history is "twisted and turned" to glorify to their advantage. You guys can fool yourself, but there are no believers to your lies!!

How are you bro,

Yes, I have spoken to Mohan in Sydney. Very refreshing.

What do you think abour Anandasangaree's comments to BBC? I know Wijeyapala and you were backing him for some time. He has also rejected joining UPA without giving any reasons. Seems he stil wants federalism.


I fine mate, We need more Tamils like Mohan.

I am not a particular fan of Devananda or Anandasanaree. I do not trust Devananda as an opportunist but Ananadasangaree concern about people he is trying to represent is genuine.

Moshe’s some accusations levelled against Anandasangaree also correct but not unexpected.

Devananda is a mysterious fellow and should be watched closely.

Thanks for the post!

no; it doesn't matter MUCH. UPFA already has a tamil and muslim representation which is MORE than enough to win the presidential election.

following a RESOUNDING presidential election win, other parties will AUTOMATICALLY join in for the GE. if they don't, they will get wiped out.

premadasa secured the highest GE win under the PR system this way.

MR needs at least 25 seats than that.

I hope you are wrong here. We too heard these rumours some time ago. I would warn the President to watch his back. His security personal must be very vigilant and we were not impressed with that lot when he visited the Oxford Union Last July. Thanks to the Scotland Yard offices he left there safely. Love for money corrupts people and the Diaspora has plenty of it to spread around and get their work done.
Now this war is over the people in power must come to grips with the break down in law and order as we heard that there was an attempt on another journalist.

Tamils have still not seriously started thinking about the gravity of the treacherous roles played by China, Japan, Pakistan and some others."

CASC said...

Dear Wijayapala,

I don't disgree with your basic premise that enlightened political leadership must go hand in hand to ensure the future stability of the country.

I lived through most of this war so I must respectfully disagree with you on the role of a large standing army. I believe that there is a definite need for it.

I saw the funeral procession of Inspector Bastianpilli going to Kanatte cemetary in 1982. The LTTE started killing police personnel long before 1983. In 1979 the Army Commander sent then Brigadier Tissa Weeratunga to quell disturbances in Jaffna that the police were not able to handle.
Even before India's direct military intervention India had introduced sophisticated weapons like the RPG while the Sri Lanka Army was still using WW2 Lee Enfield Rifles. I don't disagree with you on the impact of 1983 on LTTE recruitment.

I believe that the LTTE menace could have been nipped in the bud had Sri Lanka had a large standing army from the start. Even in the last eelam war, the SLA was able to hold territory because of its size and other resources available
to it like the Civil Defence Force, now 40,000 strong.

If Sri Lanka had compulsory national military service like Switzerland, Singapore, South Korea, Turkey, or Israel, then perhaps there is no need for a large professional military.

For all these reasons, a large standing army is needed for internal security operations and to deter outside threats. It should be representative of all ethnic groups.

Bugger! In Rome higher profile prisoners of war were kept in the prison, usually foreign commanders who were defeated and became the centerpiece in a Roman triumphant procession. They usually remained incarcerated until they were paraded and strangled in public.

We need to put all the captured LTTE terrorists in chains and have them paraded in the June 3rd National Victory Parade at Galle Face Green. Then we can strangle a couple of higher profile terrorists for the entertainment of the crowds.

Cheers!

Pathetic attempts to uplift the Image of the top scum of Sri Lanka emerges these days everywhere. It is laughable to see how RW is trying to get credit for Karuna split when he fired the man who saved Karuna from UNP.

After Ranil Wickramasinghe pulling all possible dirty tricks to stall and discredit the forward march of our forces including begging his white masters to charge the present government for bogus war crimes, his blind stooges like Akila Viraj Kariyawasam seems to have the audacity to give Ranil lots of credit for military defeat of LTTE.

After serving the heads of our brave LRRP soldiers on silver plater to LTTE, it is truley blood boiling to see Ranil and stooges claiming any credit for military victories.

Just as you think above noted jokes are maddening enough, another RW stooge thinks that RW is a great leader. Despite the facts that RW lost 19 election in a row and lost a significant section of elected members to the government, moronic Dhanapala Seneviratne of Mirigama thinks that Ranil Wickramasinghe is a great leader. Perhaps, we need to perform brain surgeries on these stooges to understand what leadership is. In fact, MR should be thankful to RW everyday for reducing UNP to a minority pro-terrorist party. Anyway, this is a new trend to watch.

Several British newspapers ran articles about one Dhamilvany Gnanakumar or Vany Kumar as they liked to call her being trapped in the NFZ. They change her details as it suits them. In one such article she was a "London-trained administrative officer" whereas in another she was a "British medic with a background in bioscience"!!! One paper even went so far as to describe her as a doctor who was voluntarily treating patients at "Mullaivaikkal Hospital" along with the three doctors who are now in custody. These contradictory statements only go to show that she is just a conspirator in all of this, probably placed there by some too-clever-by-half newspaper. She is now said to be in one of the IDP camps and the (UK) Times claims that the British High Commission is seeking her release. It is worth finding out who she really is! Most likely a SPY!

Patriots,

Now is the time to INVEST in Sri Lanka, before FOREIGN BULLS PILE IN!

Sri Lanka Sees Foreign Investment Quadrupling as Civil War Ends

By Cherian Thomas
Bloomberg.com
June 2, 2009

Sri Lanka expects foreign direct investment to more than quadruple to $4 billion by 2012 as the end of a 26-year-old civil war leads to political stability.

“Interest in Sri Lanka is tremendous now,” Dhammika Perera, chairman of the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, said in an interview in Colombo yesterday. “The end of the war has put the country on the radar of global companies.”

Clothing manufacturers and hotel operators are scouting the nation for investment opportunities after the military defeated rebel Tamil Tigers last month, Perera said without naming the companies. President Mahinda Rajapaksa may still have to find a settlement to the separatist demands of the ethnic Tamils to secure lasting peace and build investor confidence.

“We think there are great untapped opportunities, however many challenges remain,” said Prakriti Sofat, a Singapore-based economist at HSBC Holdings Plc. “The government needs to create the right post-conflict environment by not only ensuring law and order for the broader civilian population but most importantly finding a political solution to the ethnic problem.”

An estimated 300,000 people have been displaced by fighting in the north, the previous stronghold of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, which fought for a separate Tamil homeland and at one point controlled a third of the island’s territory.

Rajapaksa on May 16 declared victory over the LTTE. The president said his government will implement a power-sharing plan for the north based on a 1987 constitutional amendment that arose from a peace accord with India.

‘Attractive Investment’

The plan will establish a provincial council to assume some of the central government’s role. The LTTE had rejected the amendment in 1988, saying the proposal was meaningless because the national parliament retained the power to rule on matters allocated to provincial authorities.

Still, Sri Lanka, without war, is an “attractive investment” proposition as the country improves its power, ports and other infrastructure and streamlines procedures for business, said Perera. He said he won’t name the companies that are planning investments in Sri Lanka until contracts with them have been signed.

Sri Lanka moved up to 29th position in 2008 from 47th place in 2007 for ease with which to start a business in the country, according to the World Bank. The island allows 100 percent ownership to foreign investors in all businesses and places no restriction on repatriation of earnings, Perera said.

Stocks Gain

Malaysian companies invested $150 million in Sri Lanka in 2008, making the country the biggest foreign direct investor in Sri Lanka during the year, according to the Board of Investment. India ranked second with $126 million as Bharti Airtel Ltd., the nation’s largest mobile-phone company, started operations in Sri Lanka. China was placed ninth with $27 million of investments.

Sri Lanka’s benchmark stock index, the Colombo All-Share Index, has climbed 16 percent since the government overran Tamil Tigers, taking its gains this year to 47 percent.

The central bank last month raised its growth forecast for the nation’s $32 billion economy to between 4 percent and 5 percent, compared with an April estimate of 2.5 percent.

Investor Jim Rogers said May 21 that he sees “wonderful opportunities” in Sri Lanka and that he would like to go to Sri Lanka to see “great, cheap” opportunities because of “dramatic” changes in the country.

Hats off to dedicated journalists.
.
In the aftermath of the annihilation of the LTTE, various individuals who were peripherally involved in the battlefield, reporting the progress of the war on the electronic media, have been felicitated with public receptions usually reserved for the gallant soldiers in combat.

Amidst this hoopla, all seem to have forgotten the more sustained role performed over a protracted period of time by a few dedicated and committed professionals in journalism who reported the events on the battlefield, the progress of the war, analysis of strategic issues and international responses. This small group of dedicated men consistently and persistently worked on the theme that the LTTE is a horrendous outfit of terrorists who must and can be defeated militarily. They countered the myth of invincibility of the LTTE carefully orchestrated on behalf of the LTTE by NGOs INGOs, the international community and unfortunately by some of our own political leadership prior to 2005. They kept faith with our Defence capabilities and in no small measure sustained the Nation’s confidence in winning the war.

Foremost among these journalists was Prabath Sahabandu, editor of The Island, whose editorials on issues of relevance to the foregoing were absolute masterpieces. But that didn’t prevent The Island from taking on the government over many issues including presidential pardon offered to wife of a minister serving term of life imprisonment and two heroin carriers.

Shamindra Ferdinando of The Island and Keerthi Waranakulasuriya of the Divaina are two others who never deviated from his belief that the LTTE could be defeated on the battlefield. There was no mudslinging or personal vilification or slander or devious attempts to create rifts within the defence establishment. The number of editorials of The Island reproduced by the army.lk is evidence of the faith the defence establishment had in UNL


The country should felicitate and recognise this elitist group of journalists who have done their profession and country proud.

the "right" political solution should be decided by SL, not "advisors" to foreign investors. investors are really not interested in the "right" political solution.

Sri Lanka: Dengue Fever, Dysfunctional Democracy

By Basil Fernando
[Scoop.co.nzJune 1, 2009

80 persons have died of dengue fever recently. Over 5,000 people are infected and there are fears that of further spread of the virus. The president has asked the authorities to pay more attention to the issue.

Diseases happen in all societies. However, the way diseases are dealt with depends on the efficiency of countries' political as well as societal systems. In the case of disease it is the country's overall medical system and the public relations systems which have the task of creating people's awareness about ways to deal with the problem that make the difference.

....deleted text.....

What is the type of public awareness work done about the prevention of dengue fever? Mere public statements from a head of the state do not suffice. In fact, the work of prevention and protection is not done directly by the head of the state but by those who are carrying out many tasks within the medical system and the public relations system. Everything depends on these persons.

What is the type of accountability system that prevails over Sri Lanka's medical system and public relations systems? It is not different to the accountability systems that apply to other aspects of the society. On all aspects of the Sri Lankan society, the accountability systems are nearly dead.

The result of accountability systems being dead is that the type of energetic pursuit of fighting against the social evils, disease being the most important of such social evils, does not take place. Lethargy is spread throughout the society and demoralization is spread into all areas of professional life. Various types of fear are paralyzing everyone, so the type of initiatives that normally arise to deal with threats to life and survival are affected by such fears.

When people fought in the early twentieth century against malarial mosquitoes, they succeeded. In the background of struggles for independence and due to leftist political parties who during that time showed empathy for the common folk, an energetic movement developed and the mosquitoes' influence was adequately defeated.

If the dengue fever is spreading, it is not because the mosquito that carries the dengue fever is stronger than the malarial mosquito. It is simply because the country's total system of accountability is much weaker.

It is the duty of the parliament to take active part to stop the spread of dengue fever. It is a duty of all the media to take up the cause of fighting dengue as a priority and to provide adequate media time for this campaign. It is a duty of doctors and health workers to demand all the facilities they need to deal with this issue, in order to prevent danger to any more lives. It is a duty of the public to critically examine why their society does not prove to have sufficient energy and determination to defeat this viral disease.

Govt concerned about ‘China factor’: Pallam
By Gautam Datt
ExpressBuzz.com, New Delhi
June 02, 2009

India is taking measures to control the impact of China’s growing military influence in the region, Minister of State for Defence Pallam Raju said here on Monday.

The Minister repeated what the security establishment in New Delhi has been worried about. Beijing has been playing a shadow game in India’s backyard by expanding its reach of influence from Nepal to Sri Lanka and Myanmar
.

It has broken out from being a traditional strategic partner of Pakistan to raise stakes in several South Asian nations. Raju acknowledged that it was a matter of concern. “The Chinese influence is not just in Pakistan. They are trying to develop ports in Sri Lanka and Myanmar. We are well aware of these developments. We are taking steps to ensure that the Chinese influence does not pose a threat,” he said.

This is the second time in less than a week that a top Indian defence functionary has commented on the Chinese role in the region.

The outgoing air chief Fali Homi Major observed that little was known about China’s military capabilities.

He said that the IAF had taken into account the ‘China factor’ and was increasing its presence in the northeastern sector.

The IAF plans to have more landing strips in the region and even base frontline Sukhoi combat jets at Tezpur in Assam.

China is already building a strategic port at Gwadar in Pakistan.

In Sri Lanka it is developing the Hambantota port and has a strong presence in Myanmar and Nepal.

China aided Sri Lanka in the armed conflict against the Tamil Tigers.

Raju stressed that the government had not ignored this growing Chinese influence. He also expressed concern about Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.

Amidst reports that Pakistan might have developed a second nuclear strike capability, Raju said that India had a clear ‘no first use policy’.

CASC said...

Sri Lanka has won a great military victory over the LTTE. The military victory has been followed by a great diplomatic victory over western countries trying to tag it with a war crimes label. On the diplomatic front, perhaps now is the time to take stock and change our strategy to build a different kind of relationship with the west. An abrasive or reactionary foreign policy may be detrimental to Sri Lanka's interests in this post conflict phase. Someone like Professor G. L. Peries, a soft spoken academic, may be more suitable to represent Sri Lanka abroad, and to soften our image with the western world.

While maintaining our guard against vested foreign interests,
there is no point antagonizing
a newly appointed foreign ambassador even before she has arrived in the country. I say this after reading the following amazing article by Lal Jayasooriya posted on Defence.lk

Lt. Colonel found deeply involved with LTTE

[COLOMBO, SinhalaNet 2009.06.02 06:25AM] Mount Lavinia Additional Magistrate Darshika Wimalasiri, yesterday, allowed an application by the Colombo Crimes Division to obtain a report pertaining to the personal bank account of a Lieutenant Colonel attached to the Ratmalana Intermediate Camp and residing at the Kendalanda Army Residencies.

It is alleged that the Lieutenant Colonel had helped an activist of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who was involved in a plot to assassinate the President.

On the basis of the information divulged by the LTTE activist, police had searched the Ratmalana office of the suspect and found a micro pistol, 125.9 mm cartridges, 30.22 cartridges and cash amounting to Rs. 1.4 million and 48 Singapore dollars. Police also informed Court that two vans, supposedly purchased by the suspect with LTTE funds, had been taken into custody. Chief Inspector Jayatilake, acting under the instructions of SP Vas Gunawardane (who is also director of the Colombo Crimes Division) produced the ‘B’ Report in Court in connection with the two vans.

Lanka asks for extradition of Malaysia based ‘KP’

Monday, June 01, 2009 News Source:
SinhalaNet®

[COLOMBO, SinhalaNet 2009.06.02 06:05AM] Sri Lanka is confident that Malaysia would expel LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran’s successor Kumaran Pathmanathan aka ‘KP’ wanted on terrorism charges. Although no formal announcement has been made, ‘KP’ has been recognised by various LTTE fronts as their top representative.

Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama last Friday (May 29) requested Malaysian Defence Minister Dr. Ahamd Zahid bin Hamidi Y. B. Dato Seri to hand over ‘KP’ to facilitate ongoing investigations into LTTE operations overseas.

Well informed sources told The Island that the appeal was made on the sidelines of the 8th Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore. A Foreign Ministry press statement on Bogollagama’s meet with his Malaysian counterpart issued on Saturday didn’t refer to Sri Lanka’s call for KP’s extradition though it said Sri Lanka had urged Malaysia to proscribe the LTTE.

Authoritative sources said that ‘KP’ had sought refuge in Malaysia some time ago after his presence in Thailand came to light. India, too, had made inquiries when KP’s presence was made public.

Sources said that a high profile presence of the LTTE in Malaysia had been revealed in an unprecedented FBI investigation which targeted an LTTE arms procurement ring involving Singaporeans and Indonesians.

Sources said that some of the funds for procurement of armaments were to be transferred from a Malaysian Bank.

Ongoing police investigations have also revealed that a Lieutenant Colonel of the Sri Lanka Army on the Tigers’ payroll now in custody had visited Malaysia before the collapse of the LTTE..

A few days before the killing of Prabhakaran, Sri Lanka monitored ‘KP’ directing a close associate of the LTTE leader trapped in the Vellamullivaikkal area to hold the army until an international lifeline could be thrown in.

Recently Sri Lanka appointed Brigadier Udaya Perera as Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commissioner to Malaysia to meet a new threat posed by the LTTE. Perera is the first serving army officer to receive a diplomatic appointment. Sources said that the appointment followed after Perera impressed foreign ministry mandarins at a special meeting called to brief top envoys of several countries in the run up to the final battle.

KP’s presence captured media attention after the Norwegians made contact with him in Malaysia and also facilitated contact between him and top UN officials.

SLA-

Slight correction of your pronounciation. You should pronounce:

"Chingaliya Moodiya, Gawung Ganda Yoodiya"

wijayapala said...

CASC,

"The LTTE started killing police personnel long before 1983."

Yes- but the LTTE was not able to get the upper hand over the police until after 1983. In Mark Whitaker's book on D. Sivaram, Sivaram a former PLOTE militant admitted that the police were a major obstacle to Tamil militancy even during the 1980s.

The LTTE also killed SLA before and during 1983. Does that mean SLA was useless?

"In 1979 the Army Commander sent then Brigadier Tissa Weeratunga to quell disturbances in Jaffna that the police were not able to handle."

Was Weeratunga successful?

"Even before India's direct military intervention India had introduced sophisticated weapons like the RPG while the Sri Lanka Army was still using WW2 Lee Enfield Rifles."

Note that LTTE had no sophisticated weapons before 1983- that's another argument demolishing India's involvement before the riots.

"I believe that the LTTE menace could have been nipped in the bud had Sri Lanka had a large standing army from the start."

I believe that the LTTE menace could have been nipped in the bud had Sri Lanka had better leaders who did not allow Tamils to get murdered.

A large SLA after independence would have diverted resources away from things like health and education. Instead of 90% literacy rate we might have had 50-60% like India, Pakistan, or Bangladesh.

"Even in the last eelam war, the SLA was able to hold territory because of its size and other resources available
to it like the Civil Defence Force, now 40,000 strong.
"

A large SLA was needed to fight this last war because the LTTE had become too powerful by then. Today, however, a future uprising will have to start from scratch. That is why even a 50000-60000-man SLA will be sufficient and will provide time to call up reserves.

"For all these reasons, a large standing army is needed for internal security operations and to deter outside threats."

A large standing SLA will not deter enemy air forces or navies. Nor will it stop militants trained on foreign soil.

From Tamilnet:
'Therefore, the Tamils are not at all impressed by any of the empty statements and diplomatic deliberations of the IC pleading Sri Lanka drunk with 'victory' to come out with 'political solutions', unless the IC directly takes over the Tamil provinces without caring for Sri Lanka's sovereignty, in order to bring in a political solution satisfying the national aspirations of Tamils'

I would love to know what the editors at tamilnet were smoking when they wrote this article. They have tunred into whining bitches lately, complaining about everything. How do these guys expect to achieve anything when they write and think such bull?

More from tamilnet:
'Among the very few classical as well as living cultures of humanity, such as the Chinese, Hebrews and Arabs, the Tamils, especially the Eezham Tamils, have become an endangered identity. The world neither protected them nor allowed them to protect themselves. '

What the f**k are the 60 million tamils in nadu land doing to protect their culture? nothing... i guess plenty being done there.

Comment 1:
This is a very dangerous situation because I feel that if there is no political settlement, Prabhakaran’s death may not be the end. We may see many more Prabhakarans in the future. If we don’t give a political settlement, the next phase of the war will not be fought in the jungles of the Vanni, but in the corridors of power in the west, where the still very powerful LTTE Inc, with added money power – because more and more Tamils started contributing of late because they saw what was happening, and people who had never contributed before are now sympathetic to that cause, - they will use whatever influence they have to claim nationhood legitimately through the United Nations like what happened in East Timor and some other countries.

3. Multi faceted Genocide.

Patriots,

Did somebody wonder why Monkeypala Master is extremely interested in,

(1) Portraying that after Prabakaran we have absolutely zero threats against sovereignty of Sri Lanka.

(2) Reducing SLDF forces down to a ceremonial level.

(3) Saying that we can't deter invaders with a bigger military force.

(4) Portraying that we are just sitting ducks supposed to yield to any foreign aggressor, no matter what we do.


Monkeypala seems to doing a great job in breaking our will and ability to stand self reliant.

Britain, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Poland - have systematically armed the Sri Lankan government since the election of its hardline president Mahinda Rajapaksa in 2005, The Times has reported.

Latest data from EU's reports on arms export licences, published in December 2009, revealed that the nine European governments authorised arm sales to Sri Lanka, amounting to 4.09 million euro in 2007 alone. Subsequently, reports reveal that the British government endorsed the sale of about 13.6 million pounds worth of military kit, including armoured vehicles, GPMG components, semi- automatic pistols and others.

Bulgaria, meanwhile, had authorised the export of guns, assault rifles and ammunition worth 1.75 million pounds sterling, according to EU documents and officials. For its part, Slovakia had sent 10,000 rockets worth 1.1 million pounds sterling, and so far Slovakia is the only country which has confirmed the delivery of the rockets, while other governments have no official published information. The reports indicate, however, that Eastern European hardware ranges from small weapons, ammunition and explosives to missiles, whereas Britain and other western countries have supplied the larger kit, ground vehicles, naval vessels and aircraft.

The United Nations has reported that about 6500 civilians were killed and 14 000 wounded in fighting in Sri Lanka from January to the end of April, with casualty figures escalating markedly in May.

On May 8 the United Nations asked the Human Rights Council to set up an international inquiry regarding the humanitarian disaster developing in the region.

Earlier in 2009, Human Rights Watch issued a report accusing the Sri Lankan Army of "slaughtering" civilians during sustained operations of indiscriminate artillery attacks, which also included the systematic shelling of hospitals, the euobserver.com has reported.

The arms sales originating from Europe were approved despite the 1998 EU Code of Conduct on Arms Exports, restricting the sale of hardware to countries who are in the process of internal warfare, or countries that have notoriously poor human rights records and a history of international law violation.

Thus, while the EU called for a peaceful resolution to the crisis in Sri Lanka, it simultaneously authorised the arms shipments, saying that "the EU did not support a military solution, and expressing concerns about human rights abuses after the collapse of a 2002 ceasefire", the Times has reported.

The code says: "Member states will not allow exports which would provoke or prolong armed conflicts and they should not issue an export licence if there is a clear risk that the proposed export might be used for internal repression".

Slovakia, for its part, has claimed that the rocket deal was legitimate as there was no UN arms embargo on Sri Lanka. Since the Tamil Tigers are considered by the European Union to be a terrorist organisation, then the country was entitled to defend itself. Britain, meanwhile, had reportedly defended its approval of sales to the country on the basis that had it not done so, China would have filled in the void.

The United States also sold Sri Lanka millions of pounds of military kit in 2006-07. Further sales were thwarted in 2008, however, "because of concerns about alleged rights abuses".

Sam,

I agree - we do need stronger SLDF.
They need to be technically very proficient.

I think we could use the blimps to monitor the northern (and rest of the ) coastal area's as they are slow moving and quite stationery with a radar and night vision. We need several for 24 hr watch- a crew could be on a 48+ hr rotating watch.

SLDF for cost to be lower - it should be mandatory for all adults to do national service - before you can get University education and, or before you can enter the government service -should be at least 1.5 yrs length. When they leave the forces -at least they will be disciplined, organized, should give all the kids who pass through good English skills and mix the communities such that long lasting bond can be made between them.

We need to build on top of what sea tigers did with weapons - and not loose that knowledge. It will be great - since DiASSpora paid for it.

Above all - no more ceremonial crap SLDF ever after. Make as much weapons at home -export and earn money for the more expensive ones.
Take away some of the funny hats and shiny braids etc stuff worn by the SLDF - which frankly mimic the MF's British. I like what Israel does. Very simple, efficient, elegant - look as well as perform very very efficiently.

I do not know what Wijeypala's agenda is - but it does not make any sense to me.

See you later aligators.

Golden Eagle and Mailravana,

Thanks for your feedback and input on my previous posts.

I do not foresee any issues relating to what GE has advocated too. What should happen is we give the opportunity of higher education to as many students as possible, maintain high level of standards, and make it relevant to the prevailing and future job markets.

We have to bring our higher education to the point that foreign students want to come and study in Sri Lanka, and local students NOT seeing any point of going overseas to complete their higher education.

...and in the interest of the Nation, all the political parties should abandon university students letting them focus on their studies, without making them cats-paws of their (politicians') ill gotten agendas.

Yes, I agree about this idea. It sounds off the wall and cool. Most importantly very practical due to low cost of maintenance. We had our HISAR attached to a Beachcraft. This will be a great tool to watch our northern, northwestern, and northeastern maritime boundaries. I hope that MOD will consider all out of the box ideas now. I have my confidence in Gotabhaya for trying unconventional methods.

Some special forces tactics that were used by the SF's-

The LRRP had noticed that the LTTE cadres guarded their well fortified bunkers by day but left at sunset because of fear. So they had occupied the bunkers in the night & waited till morning. The LTTE cadres who approached the bunker in the morning were blasted to pieces at close range. Although this tactic was practiced often the LTTE never got wise to it. All they found were the pieces outside the bunkers. This increased their fears & led to more casualties.

Later the LTTE cadres changed their defense tactic. They booby trapped the bunker surroundings with a series of extra powerful claymore mines hidden among the foliage & waited. The LRRP had seen all this claymore setup drama unnoticed. What they had done to counter this LTTE tactic was brilliant. They had crept low & silent in the night & turned the claymore bombs the other way facing the LTTE bunkers. After a while at a given signal the SF’s had faked a massive close attack. Then the unsuspecting & desperate LTTE cadres had detonated the series of claymore mines which blasted on themselves amounting to mass suicides. Even this tactic was never found out by the disheartened LTTE apparently & left them confused & in total fear & disarray.

BTW there had been hundreds of SF’s who had volunteered for certain suicide missions to destroy the enemy. These are true unsung heroes who volunteered to join the army & sacrifice their life to save the nation. We pay our ultimate respects to them & should do our utmost to look after their kith & kin.

Yes dude, this almost brought tears in to my eyes. However, we shall always train our soldiers to survive and fight another day. Regardless, we most certainly needs to take care of their loved ones. Perhaps, in the future after dust is settled we can know the real names of these heroes. Without their heroic efforts, we could have been just nation of nobody. My only hope is that the civilians will pick the flame from soldiers to make Sri Lanka a land of dreams.

Best answer to the SLDF requirement is having a large volunteer force....
this will allow that human resource to be used for other areas of development of the country when not required for combat duty.
with a good training program the quality will not be compromised.

i agree that its a good idea to maintain a large SLDF for the next 5 years.

Third Eye said...

BLoggers here seem to be fighting too much on 500k SLDF vs 50k. Now the General has spoken about it.

See the link

Extract:

Q: You want to further strengthen the Army. What are your plans for this?
A: The plans for expansion are military secrets. The Sri Lanka Army is currently doing a research regarding its various objectives and requirements.
Although terrorism has been eradicated in Sri Lanka, Eelam extremists are present in Sri Lanka and also worldwide. I call them ‘Eelamists’. When there is a strong Army, nobody can interfere with the sovereignty of our country. A strong Army is essential for a country’s stability. In the liberated areas, we have already set up camps. When the Army is strong, there is no way for terrorism to raise its head.
Q: The war is over now. Or, we can safely assume it is so, and we do not foresee any threats. How are you going to utilise this massive force of 200,000 for the country’s development?
A: Even when the war was ongoing in the North, we constructed the roads and bridges in the East, which was liberated. At the moment, we are constructing some roads in the East. So, according to Government requirements, the Army will utilise its Engineering Regiments to develop and construct buildings, roads, bridges, etc.

Third Eye said...

DefenceWire;

I read in Rivira report that 53rd and 58th are named offensive divisions, whereas MG Channa Goonathilake [56th??], and MG Nandana Udawatte will be promoted as area CO of Kilinochchi and Mulathiv. Above implicitly states that B Shavendra Silva and MG Kamal G will be heading the newly appointed offensive divisions.

I have few Qs for you.

1. What happened to MG Jagath Dias, B Chagi G and B Prasanna Silva?

2. How come 55th is not an offensive division?

3. Shouldn't we use the best skills of Prasanna S in amphibious warfare, marshlands and water bodies? What best ways can we achieve this?

4. You said some units were deployed in East. Other than SF and CR, are there any other divisions, brigades or task forces that we know of? Any of the ground leaders involved?

5. What happened to TF 1..8? Will they be attached to existing divisions?

Obviously you should reveal only harmless info in a harmless manner. Appreciate your great service.

Thanks for posting the extract from Gen SF's interview. The General knows what's best for the army and country.

For those fans of Asterix and Obelix, which is historically very accurate in many ways, one of the primary responsibilities of the Roman legionaires was to build roads, bridges, etc. At the end of their tenure, non-Roman legionaires became citizens of Rome and were offered a plot of land in one of the outposts of the empire. The Pakistani Army follows the land allocation system and gives an allocation to each soldier depending on rank and length of service.

This 25 years terrorism plus war was a result of 25 or more (perhaps 50) years of politics before 83. 83 may be the immediate event which trigger the war but the pre-requisites were fulfilled through out many decades.

Seeds for the military struggle first cultivated by political means (as usual). The main themes which motivated, angered and made uneducated tamil youth includes;

1.NE is tamils pure homeland,
2.GSL has no right to do any thing in NE without the permission of tamil leaders,
3.Any kind of settlement or invlovement of sinhalese in NE considered as 'polluting the pure tamilness in NE'.

These make sinhalese side also angered. Basically, tamil racism focused on control in the center or separation for NE and refused be part of SL and go along with the main stream politics.

These phenomena are true even today. [Note while Karuna/ Pilliyan aligning with SLFP - mainstream SL politics, AnandaS etc are still prefer 'separate' politics.]

In other words, tamil racism which was the seed for terrorism is still alive both in SL and out side SL. If the reason which began war is still there we can conclude threat is still there and be prepared. A military can't relax assuming and expecting politicos to solve the problem. They must be prepared for "if politicos failed or messup" situation when it comes to national security. This is what exactly GenSF highlighted and why he wants more troops.

This shows how 'normal educated' tamil leaders (eg. Thonaman) avoid separatist politics and move with the main stream (UNP/SLFP) while 'oxfard brand, hig caste, elite' tamil leaders refused to move with main stream and tried 'separate' politics.

Now we see Karuna/ Pilliyan aligning with SLFP (following Thondaman's politics.) The high caste elite still heading towards the destruction. (This is even refusing MR's invitation.)

future generations in the north will LOVE us for doing this.

Ian said...

There were many LTTE and LTTE front organizations that raised billions of dollars in the pretext of delivering an ealam in Sri Lanka. These funds were raised by collecting monthly contributions from the Diaspora and also conducting many illegal activities in many parts of the world. The activities carried in Sri Lanka out by using these funds have had following repercussions.

(a) Sri Lanka as a state having to spend billions to quell the terrorism.
(b) Sri Lanka having to finance the services such as education and health etc. in the north and the east for 30 years when it was under LTTE control, while there was no tax collection from the said areas.
(c) Irreversible impact on the Sri Lankan economy due to much reduced investments and low employment creation due to the war for 3 decades.
(d) The untold sufferings of the Tamil population under LTTE control.
(e) Massive impact on the life of civilians in other parts of Sri Lanka including the impact due to bombs etc.
(f) The massive costs Sri Lanka now have to foot to reconstruct the infrastructure that was ravaged by the war.

The financing of LTTE and its fronts had beneficiaries too. They were

(a) LTTE hierarchy who benefited from the funds such as Selvarasa Pathmanathan.
(b) The LTTE supporters that managed get refugee status and citizenship in the western countries ‘selling’ the war.

Some of the fronts of LTTE such as TRO were banned in the recent past by the western governments. With the bans some of the funds were also frozen. The changing of the tune by KP and the remaining LTTE fronts to show that they were ‘victims’ against a ‘genocide’ and they are now willing to do anything the west wants could be a ruse to get the bans on LTTE and its fronts lifted. Lifting of the ban will give them the access to the frozen funds for their use and also possibly to recommence the terrorism and other operations.

Sri Lanka should formulate a task force of lawyers locally and internationally to seek the funds of LTTE and its front organizations to the SL coffers, before the now sympathetic western governments lift the ban on the LTTE and related terrorist front organizations. Sri Lankan should seek these funds to use to develop the infrastructure that was damaged or ruined by LTTE in the north and in the east by fighting a war that was directly financed by the fundraising organizations such as TRO. GOSL can use the funds for the direct benefit of the civilians rescued. Thanks to LTTE many of these civilians were left with only the cloths in couple of suitcases. There are enough precedents for such a move to use the funds of the killers to compensate the victims.

If the bans of LTTE and fronts are lifted and the funds frozen released to the LTTE fronts they will have a head start for the ealam war 6 that will ruin the prospects of the civilians to start a fresh life in the north and the east. On the other hand if the funds are used for the benefit of the civilians they could have a better life style now onwards than they would otherwise if GOSL is to depend solely on the funds that are available to them. Over to you the patriotic legal luminaries in Sri Lanka and overseas to explore this as soon as possible.

If we are having large Sinhala and Muslim majority in north and east, we don’t need a large army for national security.

Really cost effective way is to have 4:1 ratio for non Tamils and Tamils with present level of army.

Moshe Dyan said...

black adder,

welcome to the community.

100% agree with you!!

what??? aren't they contradictory??

well, no.

1. a large army is needed in the short-medium term to keep peace, help put up sinhala & muslim settlements, nip in the bud the budding tamil elamists (unfortunately they are still there), etc, etc.

2. once the tamil elam project is FRUSTRATED (when tamil elam is IMPOSSIBLE. even if created it will be a sinhala-tamil-muslim elam which is sri lanka!!!!. where RACISTS like ACTC, ITAK, TULF, LTTE, PLOTE, TELO, TNA, DTNA, TRO, SHIT, STOOLS, TOILET, EXCREMENT ETC, are out of business bcos the multi ethnic voters don't vote for them anymore), we can phase out the army.

the trick is in the "T" dimension. "T" is for TIME!!!

Black Adder said...

Moshe,

Your #1 can be achieved with present SLA without expanding.

Once the demography becomes 4:1 non-Tamils to Tamils all words with “T” become irrelevant and that is the answer for #2.

We must also fast track our oil and natural gas exploration with help of China, India, Pakistan, Russia and Iran etc.

We will also need a large coal powered power plants (at least two) in north and east.

Tourism was our best foreign exchange earner prior to LTTE menace. We should develop our tourism industry in north and east without delay.

This Army Commander not suitable at least for Salvation Army, says Mangala

dept of diaspora affairs (DDA) the competing group against KP for leadership has changed its name.

now it is TAMIL ORGANIZATION for the INTERNATIONAL LIBERATION of ELAM TAMILS (TOILET).

pls dig deep into your pockets and help the elam liberation struggle.

Moshe Dyan said...

BA,

no.

it is accepted military theory that defence of an area needs MORE than the successful offence required.

Dear CASC,

"The Pakistani Army follows the land allocation system and gives an allocation to each soldier depending on rank and length of service."

The Pakistani Army also lost 3 wars with India and for a very long time was afraid to take on the Taliban in FATA. Are you sure it is a good idea to use Pakistan as a model for SL??

Ninja,

"http://www.divaina.com/2009/06/01/feature01.html

This shows how 'normal educated' tamil leaders (eg. Thonaman) avoid separatist politics and move with the main stream (UNP/SLFP) while 'oxfard brand, hig caste, elite' tamil leaders refused to move with main stream and tried 'separate' politics.
"

I couldn't find the part in Schizo Sam's article describing a threat which requires 300,000 SLA to handle. Could you point it out please?

[ deploying a large army in the north is not enough.

north MUST have large sinhala-tamil-muslim settlements for lasting peace.

LTTE was born from tamil racist political parties. the ONLY way to "put them out of business" is by having a LARGE population of non-tamils in the north.

future generations in the north will LOVE us for doing this.]

That is EXACTLY Correct!

A largely, but not exclusively, Sinhala National Army deployed permanently in a largely Tamil region can easily be depicted as an "army of occupation" leaving open the door to false allegations and the rise of separatism again.

A largely, but not exclusively, Sinhala National Army deployed permanently in areas where the population demographics of the Army closely match the demographics of the local people of region itself, cannot be portrayed as an "army of occupation."

In the short term the SLA will be largely Sinhala, and we cannot TRUST a largely Tamil Army to replace it, for reasons that have now become obvious.

However, if through ETHNIC INTEGRATION and GOSL-mandated settlement policies we drive the population EVERYWHERE in the country towards the AVERAGE ETHNIC COMPOSITION of the country, at the same time that the SLA itself is driven towards that average, the whole CONCEPT of an "army of occupation" is demolished, FRUSTRATED, to use your own words. The PEOPLE and the SLDF will be of ONE SINGLE composition.

Therefore, the ONLY PERMANENT SOLUTION to communal separatism and strife in the country, is ETHNIC INTEGRATION. It must be pursued as the HIGHEST PRIORITY POLICY of the GOSL>

An OFFICER and a GENTLEMAN -
General Sarath Fonseka

Q: As Army Commander, what is your message to the public?
A: I say a very big “thank you” to the public, for the massive support shown towards us. I also thank a section of the media, which provided the real picture of the war situation. It helped our massive recruitment drive and also, boosted our morale. I thank the public for their support.

Look out for Prabhakaran’s wife

Prabhakaran’s wife, his younger son and daughter have slipped away by sea. This fact was confirmed by the Defence Ministry’s Intelligence Advisor Major General C. Seneviratne.

wijayapala said...

Third Eye,

"BLoggers here seem to be fighting too much on 500k SLDF vs 50k. Now the General has spoken about it."

General also spoken that LTTE smuggled weapons past the SLN, which the SLN denies.

General again accuses SLN saying that Prabhakaran could escape by sea.

General has won an immense victory, but should we take everything the General says at face value?

Matara Peramuna said...

wijepala,

Where did you see or hear this twisted news?

wijayapala said...

Ananda Proud to be an American says,

"In the short term the SLA will be largely Sinhala, and we cannot TRUST a largely Tamil Army to replace it, for reasons that have now become obvious."

Yes, the obvious reasons are:

Sinhalese = good guys (even Lt. Col. Ranjith Perera, right?)

Tamils = bad guys (including Sebastian Rasalingam and Thomas Johnpulle)

Matara Peramuna said...

wijepala,

He did accuse SLN.
This is what he said "Knowing that Prabhakaran too, will attempt to escape via the sea route, I specifically instructed the Army’s 58 and 59 Divisions to link up at Puthumathalan ‘No Fire’ Zone , so as to cut off this escape route.

wijayapala said...

Matara Peramuna, click on the links and read for yourself. It is well known that Sarath Fonseka does not like Wasantha Karannagoda or the SLN as a whole.

Fonseka's dislike of the SLN might trace back to the Op. Yal Devi disaster in 1993, where allegedly the SLN failed to support Fonseka's march to Kilaly.

Sam Perera said...

"General has won an immense victory, but should we take everything the General says at face value?"

Yeah right, instead of a battle hardened militray planner we shall take the words of an old Eelamist monkey. You may spend your time better at jokes.eelam.com than a here. You are truly hilarious.

Matara Peramuna said...

wijepala,

We know that Traitors and Sakkiliyas are still working hard trying to tarnish the image of our GREAT HEROES without any success.

Black Adder said...

Limited success of LTTE largely came from its ability to smuggle arms and ammunitions to the country. It cannot be countered with large army. However, if we have strong navy which can guard Sri Lanka’s large coastal line of 1340km security threat will be minimised.

Developing SLN also cannot be seen as an occupation of territory. However, large presence of SLA without active offensive or defensive work can be a head ache to civil life leading to frictions between police and army.

Once the demining work and search and recovery of LTTE arms and ammunition is over; SLA will be confined to camps. SLA engineering corps may be utilised for construction works. However, special force and commandos can become a problem.

wijayapala said...

"They (LTTE) could not flee by air. The Air Force did a good job. We were concerned they will flee by sea," he said.

So did the SLN not do a good job like the SLA and SLAF did???

wijayapala said...

"We know that Traitors and Sakkiliyas are still working hard trying to tarnish the image of our GREAT HEROES without any success."

Are you calling Fonseka a traitor and sakkiliya for tarnishing the image of the SLN?

So you agree with Fonseka that the SLN was not up to the task of sinking Praba's boat?

(PS- please try not to give a schizo response- just answer yes or no. thanks)

Sam Perera said...

Mathara Peramuna,

You got it right, Monkeypala Master is one more Sakkiliya who tries various things.

"Are you calling Fonseka a traitor and sakkiliya for tarnishing the image of the SLN?"

Sam Perera said...

Monkeypala,

I told you once. Your Monkey jump from tree to tree will not distract me from the fact that you are an Eelamist sakkiliya. Also, your Monkey dance will not limit me how I respond. Eelamist monkeys like you deserve nothing other than unmarked graves in Sri Lanka reserved for faceless and nameless terrorists. Your monkey attempts to create fear, uncertainty, and doubt will not work here. You are just a subhuman terrorist.

Black Adder said...

Wijayapala,

General has done his duty and completed his task successfully. He is on extension for year which will be reviewed by commander in chief (President) in few months time. He may stay for another year or ask to retire.

But we must respect his military brain which delivered the much desired outcome.

However, if Gotabhaya and Sarath both want a larger army president might agree.

In my opinion we will need large navy and high quality air force instead of expanding SLA.

wijayapala said...

"Your Monkey jump from tree to tree will not distract me of the fact blah blah..."

Fortunately for you Schizo, you don't have a brain that will get distracted.

Moshe Dyan said...

Ananda,

fantastic piecing together of things.

going a bit further...

why don't we have a REPRESENTATIVE (of the population) army????

bcos of TAMIL RACIST POLITICAL PARTIES' bombardment of tamil racism on them for close to a CENTURY!!!!

these were the DOMINANT political forces/jokers northerners & easterners had, unfortunately.

ponna-ambalam, ACTC, ITAK, TULF, LTTE, TNA, DTNA......

they taught nothing but racism and this discouraged tamils from joinging in the army, navy, AF, etc. in large enough numbers even though our first general was a tamil!!!

by late 1960s, tamils in large enough numbers left the navy (in particular).

this was no accident. the northern seas started getting breached by tamil terrorists immediately thereafter!!! see the link???

even now tamil elamists are carrying out OPEN attacks on the army commander and his army, SLAF, SLN, SF, STF, etc. these acts will keep tamils away from joining in the SLDFs for a LONG time to come.

the TRUST issue is serious for no fault of theirs.

e.g. AAB attack----> contract workers had LTTE connections.

building trust, both ways, takes a LONG time.

Matara Peramuna said...

Sam Perera said...

Monkeypala,

"Can you show ***one*** statement by Fonseka where he has anything positive to say about the SLN?"

Do we care if you couldn't find it or not. All what matters to us is that your Eelam sakkiliyas bit the dust in V'vaikkal last month.

wijayapala said...

Black Adder,

"General has done his duty and completed his task successfully."

Agree.

"He is on extension for year which will be reviewed by commander in chief (President) in few months time. He may stay for another year or ask to retire."

Since the war is over, it would be good for him to retire. I fear someone like him may not be safe in a peacetime situation. That has been true of many great generals in the past.

"But we must respect his military brain which delivered the much desired outcome."

Agree.

"However, if Gotabhaya and Sarath both want a larger army president might agree."

Will the president have a choice? :-/

"In my opinion we will need large navy and high quality air force instead of expanding SLA."

You and I are on the same page. The war is won and the next threat will be something quite different.

wijayapala said...

"All what matters to us is that your Eelam sakkiliyas bit the dust in V'vaikkal last month."

Nilambare said...

Guys,

Any one has any more new on this British Tamil woman bitch being detained in SL.

My view is that this woman has some big explaining to do. We should not release her easily. She must be questioned as how she ended up there. There are very big issues:


1 violation of immigration laws,
2. working without authorisation,
3. being in an area of conflict without notifying anyone etc.


Just because the British Embassy asks her to be released, SL should not do it. After all, will British Government allow any Sri Lankan to go to England and do a similar thing and send them back without any question?

I was watching Taraki alias Monkeypala. Bugger is very worried about SF's plans. After SF's plan these mother fockers can't dance anymore.

Can't monkeypala be Mongal Samaraweera?

*
"General also spoken that LTTE smuggled weapons past the SLN, which the SLN denies.

Whoredog, we know you are influenced by Mongal. Sad to say your Elam dream is dead and discrediting General Fonseka won't make a whore monkey a military genius.

I told you that your dumb ass brain cannot contribute anything defence related.

After that you attempted something and disaster.

Bloody idiot you have never contributed anything defence related and you can't. At least try to appreciate General Fonseka.

Sandakal dumbass tells me that you couldn't sleep after May 19th. Your mania grows from sleep deprivation.

Konappu Bandara said...

Patriots,
While it's fantastic that we are moving ahead to boost the SLDF strength to 300,000 it's important to keep the training programs top-notch while handling the increased intake. The list of army training schools are as as follows according to army website. Hopefully we can have a good discussion on how each of these schools can be improved further to meet the external and internal threats of the future.

SLA Training Centers

• SLMA - Sri Lanka Military Academy
• ATS - Army Training School
• ITC - Infantry Training Centre
• CTS - Combat Training School
• APEC - Army Physical Education Centre
• VFTS - Volunteer Force Training School
• MSTS - Marksman Sniper Training School
• NCOTS - Non Commission Officer Training School
• LTS - Language Training School
• IPSOT-SL - Institute of Peacekeeping Support Operations Training Sri Lanka
• ACTC-Armoured Cops Training Centre
• School Of Artillery
• SLSME – Sri Lanka School of Military Engineering
• School Of Mechanical Engineers
• School Of Signals
• CRTS-Commando Regiment Training School
• MIC-Military Intelligence Corps.
• ESR-Engineer Service School
• SLASC-Sri lanka Army Service Corps. School
• SLAMC-Sri lanka Army Military School Of Nursing
• SLAOC-Sri lanka Army Ordnance School
• SLEME-Sri lanka Electrical And Mechnaical Engineers School
• SLCMP-Sri lanka Corps of Military Police School
• SLAGSC-SriLanka Army General Service Corps. School

Cheers!

Gentlemans,

I tell Saradiel boss, him talking like that not good. Bad for full Maradankadawala bajar. Bajar people also talk too much bad when angry. But face to face boss. About kunu harupa boss, what you all telling like dharma talk compare to what our Nancy Nona tell when angry. You not know kunu harupa boss. You come here and Nancy Nona teach what kunu harupa to you. When she telling kunu harupa people put finger in the ear boss.

I mean boss, if you angry with man, you tell face to face. That bajar way boss. What Saradiel do, hide behind blog and shout bad things. That very third class work boss. Other man cannot touch. Him not know who Saradiel. Him not know even Saradiel true name.

I tell Saradiel. You talk in blog good things. Talking and talking with others you get good ideas boss. OK, boss we know no two agree all time in this world. Argument OK boss. Vada Vivada good boss. But insult no good.

I tell Saradiel, you do that again, you not come to Maradankadawala bajar again. I tell him I remove your head and give it to hand. Yes boss, Jamis good to good – bad to bad.

I tell Aybowan boss.

Very strange article from Tamil.net

http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=99&artid=29504

I have heard about transnational corporations but I have never come across people who have a transnational identity.

"If the oppression to their nationalism is trans-national, the Eezham Tamils have to respond by forming a trans-national government fully responsible to them based on democracy, to negotiate with the world and to look after their own affairs."
