Fat Lady warms up her voice – Less resistance from LTTE
Since the large scale elimination of LTTE fighting cadre in the last 48 hrs, the resistance to civilians trying to escape to the GOSL controlled areas has reduced significantly. This is not because there aren’t sufficient armed LTTE members in the NFZ to restrict civilians escape, but there isn’t anyone to give orders; to tell them what to do. This will not only encourage large numbers of civilians to cross over, but will cause low level armed cadres to desert their ranks and surrender. The SLA is clearing escape routes so larger numbers of civilians would be encouraged to make the move.
Though most of the heavy artillery guns and other weapons are now captured or put out of action, a serious point taken in to consideration by the SLDF is the massive stocks of arti-shells, munitions and other explosives which are stockpiled in the NFZ. These could be triggered off by the losing LTTE to create indiscriminate carnage. Therefore the SLDF are on high alert with SF (Special Forces) in position waiting to storm the NFZ when orders are given.
The morale of SLDF, particularly the SLA Infantry, is at an all time high having witnessed so many LTTE hard-core and long standing terrorist leaders on the KIA list. Vidusha & Deepam have been a thorn-in-the side of the advancing forces, but now they have truly met their Maker (we are sure the Maker is not impressed by them). Eye-witnessing the dead bodies of terrorist leaders “Live” (as opposed to hear of their demise over LTTE communication), is the icing on the cake to battle fatigued men on the front lines. This has given them an unprecedented morale boost (not that they needed one. . .) and spurred them on to fight with more vigour and vehemence.
Rumours are rife that Piripaharan is “brown bread”, but these rumours are just that, rumours. There is no truth in them. He is in civvies and probably on a crash diet in the hope of attaining the same appearance as one of the people he claims to represent. This way he hopes to mingle with the civilians to try and save his sorry...ahem...bottom. Good luck to him!
