LTTE responds to SLA's Humanitarian Ceasefire


LTTE responds to ceasefire with violence

The LTTE has responded to the SLA's unilateral declaration of a humanitarian ceasefire for the Singhala and Tamil New Year by:
1) Calling it an insult.
2) Hacking to death 8 unarmed and innocent farmers in Buttala.
3) Attempting to breach 53rd's PTK East FDL with the sole aim of slowing the SLA's escape route clearing mission (this attack was soundly repulsed).
4) Vandalising the Sri Lankan embassy in Oslo, Norway.

All the lobbying and protesting by the LTTE in Western capitals was to demand a ceasefire so that the "Genocide" is called off. The Government responded to calls from the International Community (who were pressurised by their substantial Tamil Diaspora voter base) and declared a two day ceasefire. However, what the LTTE did was exactly the opposite of what the International Community (IC) expected of them, i.e., abide by and respect the ceasefire. Once again, the LTTE has shot itself in the foot. Yet again, the GoSL has proven to the IC that the LTTE is not serious about ceasefires, all they wanted to was to re-organise and re-arm, the overseas protesters are accountable for giving the LTTE this chance. Had the LTTE abided by the ceasefire, a civilian exodus from the NFZ would have started, what is currently happening is that only a handful of IDPs are trickling into cleared areas, the LTTE is still keeping them hostage under threats of violence.

The Army Commander has a soft side too

Sources suggest that it took some persuading to convince Major General Sarath Fonseka that a temporary suspension of offensive missions was needed at this juncture to appease the IC, the Army commander after much thought and consulation with this ground commanders agreed to this approach.

Defensive operations proceed with rapid pace, large hauls of arms and ammunition uncovered

The defensive operations have not stopped though. Most of the units in reserve have turned back and are clearing the liberated areas to root out any infiltrators and dig up the buried / hidden arms.

Saradiyel and the comma

The MOD writers with their limited journalistic experience is confusing readers into thinking there are ongoing battles in Vishwamadu and that weapons are being uncovered after these battles, all that is happening is that reserve units are sweeping these areas and uncovering weapons left behind quite a while ago. Some monkey blogs have taken advantage of bad writing by the MOD and are using this oppurtunity to show the dissillusioned diaspora that the LTTE is fighting the SLA in Vishwamadu. Some monkey commentators in these primate blogs are jumping up and down about these non existent battles. It was said that Colonial Era Singhala hero Saradiyel was executed due to a grammatical error by a Singhala Post Office clerk. When the British Governer pardoned Saradiyel, the message to the executioner was miscommunicated as there was a missing comma - the message should have read "Saradiyel maranna epaa, beranna", however the post office clerk wrote this as "Saradiyal maranaa, epaa beranna". Hence Saradiyel was put to death by comma. We could not find an equivalent English translation of the post office clerk's message (whose surname was probably Wickramasinghe / Karunayake / Daluwatta), we ask one of our readers to translate this to English, a New Year prize is on offer. We apogolise for going off on a tangent about the finer points of journalism, but the message to the MOD is get it right first time and uppdate the Orbat map regularly!

Happy New Year!

We wish our readers a Happy Tamil and Singhala New Year! May all your aspirations come true in the upcoming year. Certainly peace is on the horizon.

Hope our guys would not send a telegram on pirupa's death sentence....he'll have to suffer for weeks thinking of death, until the telegram arrives!! Not to mention the possibility of grammatical errors resulting in maybe, giving him to rule north for 10years, as some mad woman suggested. May be the name that post master was something like "dias-pandaranaike".....

Guys,

Norway is Out of the Game. Goverment has said enough is enough.

Last Thirsday I met Tore Hattrem at Sambodhi Temple colombo07.

He was talking about Democracy & Kinsley of Sirarsa was talking to him about how good Norway as a country

I told him Norway can be a Nice country but you went to Malasia & meeting KP is a Dirty thing.

He did Not Comment, just walked away, atleast I was happy I manage to embarasse him, I was so mad about how the other VIP's present there respected this white ass.

But I should say he had a good understanding about Buddhism.

May be the bugger was under pressure by his governmenet purticularly the Ranil's Gay partner Soheim.

Hattrom seems to be a nice guy but it's sad that he has to be a part of his governement's viciouse agenda

How odd. I thought General Foneska was serving the Government at their convenience and not his own or that of his subordinates. Isn't his job to follow orders from his commander and chief?

Who is he to consider agreeing to follow his orders? This report is either untrue or it shows that the tail is wagging the dog.

Ultimately the president is answerable to the people of Sri Lanka. It is near unanimous decision of the people of Sri Lanka to destroy all the subhuman LTTE terrorist scummies. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary for the president to consult the General before telling the people about the plan. We the people elected our leader to eliminate all of the terrorist bastards like you and he is bound to do it with unwavering commitment.

As usual you miss my point dear Sam. The President is the one who gives the orders and the General's job is to follow them. Is that a difficult chain of thought for you? Of course the President seeks the General's consul on issues like this but he, not the General, makes the final decision... at least in a functioning democracy. When he has made his decision any and all debates within the military should be over and done with and his orders followed as per the law.

I am in full agreement with the President in his aim towards eliminating the terrorists and have been saying for weeks here and elsewhere that a ceasefire makes sense. It is nice to see the President and I share this logic.

Next up is the need for a political solution that eliminates the root causes of Tamil disenfranchisement... a solution that does not need to include a separate state in my opinion.

Does this thinking make me a "scummy terrorist" in need of killing? I think not but at least, unlike some folks in these parts, I bother to think before posting.

Always a pleasure to bring enlightenment to extremists like yourself.


Peace be upon you.

Can anyone give a good reason as to why the Norwegians are so keen on interfering in Sri Lanka? What's in it for them?

I've read of all sorts of bizzare conspiracy theories like they want to spread their version of Christianity, hoping to get oil exploration rights from an Eelam state etc and none of them sound plausible.

There are no colonial connections (Iike the UK), so what is it?

A country's foreign policy goals are usually based on reality and rational calculation. What do they hope to achieve in SL by having helped the LTTE over the last 20-30 years?

What to do have to show for this support of the LTTE other than the undying enmity of a large segment of the SL population?

There's never an Eelamist for an answer about the Norwegians when you need one! :)

I've read about the Norwegian NGOs involvement in SL since the 70s -- but, its a big step from helping disadvantaged villagers on the coastal belt to assisting a violent, separatist movement like the LTTE.

We know why India helped the LTTE during the early years, but Norway....?

Mango,

Norway was heavily involved in fishing industry in and around south India and Sri Lanka prior to 1983. Their involvement with LTTE in earlier days purely humanitarian, after seen 1983 communal violence, they have changed. However, Eric Soleheim was taken for a ride by Anton Balasingham but Eric doesn’t want to admit it publicly. Therefore he still maintains freedom fighter BS with LTTE.

SLG should severe diplomatic ties with Norway and declare Eric Soleheim as public enemy No.1 from foreign nationals.

You are clinging on black and white arguments. The world does not operate in binary.
In the real world a good Army commander involves with most of the executive decisions relating to the security and those can be considered mostly as group decisions. Sometimes, if the president is a bitch, the orders may be one sided and the general may not follow some, exactly the same way those were intended. Then the time would be the factor which determines weather he is a good General or not.
It looks like you did not understand the second part. That means we should forget about it.

Rana said...

You may not be a terrorist or terrorist supporter which I do not know. However, I do not agree with ceasefire at this moment. If our president thinks a defensive pause of 48 hours will calm down IC, which is fine with me.

Any way don’t try to demand this or that solutions for Tamil community after failing by force with an armed struggle. You wait and see what comes through and accept that as a gift from peace loving and caring Sinhalese.

Au contraire mon ami. We are communicating here precisely because a certain part of the world is exceptionally binary.

As for understanding the second part, I suspect it is your inability to properly discern the subtle nuance of my reply to your comment, not my ability to comprehend your stilted prose.


As far as chains of command are concerned, I remind you that in a functioning democracy the General, who serves at the bequest of the President, is bound to follow the President's decision in so far as it is within the constitutional realm of the law of the land.

I repeat... the President, as Dear Sam pointed out, is elected to serve the people and the General is in fact a servant to the the President through his chosen commander of the armed forces.

If you suggest this is not the case in Sri Lanka then I recommend you publicly mention this to the parties involved and see just who they think the terrorist is... me or you.


Oh... and I assure you and all that I am not STD and have not contracted one in quite some time.

I am not now nor have I ever demanded anything from anyone in regards to the tragedy in Sri Lanka.

I truly hope that there is a peace and that such peace does not include, in any way, shape or form, a capitulation to the outrageous demands of the LTTE or the ill-informed Tamil diaspora who continue to completely fail to recognise the need for terrorism to be denied in every form it manifests itself.

Disinformation the LTTE scummy,

As I said earlier, your attempts to spread disinformation and distrust is not going to work here. No sane commander-in-chief will change the military strategy without consulting his generals, that is a given. In addition, the commander of any branch of armed forces are not servant of anybody. Your attempts to paint a commander to be a servant of somebody is pathetic and stupid indeed. May be that is the case in your realm of LTTE terrorists monkeys but it is not so in Sri Lanka. Nobody is a servant. However, they are expected to serve the nation honorably.

I have met many monkeys like you in my life and I must say that you have a very special place in Sri Lanka's unmarked graves reserved for faceless and nameless terrorist scummies. Please spend more time in Puligal among your brothers-in-terror to feel better.

In addition, the commander of any branch of armed forces are not servant of anybody. Your attempts to paint a commander to be a servant of somebody is pathetic and stupid indeed.You are wrong as possible sir. The President is Commander-in-Chief. Please read the constitution or explain to me how he is not.


May be that is the case in your realm of LTTE terrorists monkeys but it is not so in Sri Lanka. Nobody is a servant. Again... you are clearly wrong and rather too dim to see the obvious. Please provide proof that Generals are not servants of the Commander-in-Chief. You cannot because as usual you are wrong.

I am banned from the pages provided by the Scarborough boys because I choose to question their poorly written and constructed propaganda nonsense.

I am not now, nor have I ever supported the LTTE in any manner although, unlike you, I have spent time with them in the North and can speak from honest experience to their cult-like evil... as opposed to someone like you who has likely never been farther north than Kandy.

As the time goes by LTTE is getting unnecessary advantages which they do not deserve.

SLG and SLA should not play into their hands and demands. Pressure from international community is the demand made by LTTE.

Army should go in tomorrow and wipe out all remaining LTTE cadres and the leadership without further delay. Every additional day given to them is increasing our casualties.

All these IC demands are spear headed by Norway and SL should severe diplomatic ties with Norway and withdraws our diplomatic corpse from Norway. We have enough reasons to do that.

Things are moving against us, mark my word. Delay will cost us dearly.

Mahen said...

The STF was supposed to clear out the LTTE infiltrators (remnants of the Jeyanthan Brigade) in the East. Remember that SLA vacated the camps and handed them over to the STF. However, the STF was not what it used be, remember the 80s heydays of the STF where it was the premier unconventional fighting force and most feared by the LTTE, SF and CRs were in their infancy then. Granted that STF had limited success recently in gunning down 13 terras. BUT, internal politics meant that Leuke (the feared and respected commander of the STF) got moved to Colombo Security (unfortunately he is pro UNP). Without Leuke, STF is a lame duck. I understand that SF will sweep the East once the Wanni is swept.

End of the day, the STF is part of the police and are hence a civilian defence force and should not take part in offensive missions like the SF, but the SF is too busy now!

පංකාදු ලංකා said...

If what Mahen is saying about President-Army commander relationship is true, (i.e. Sarath Fonseka needing persuasion) that is a good sign. It shows that:

1) They are working as a team (as Hemantha has correctly pointed out)

2) They respect each others' opinions

3) They are not "lording it over" the junior member in the line of command - unlike the LTTP where one man runs the show

4) Each one is aware of their particular area of expertise and brings their expert opinions to the table to make optimum decisions - together

5) There is a good working relationship between the members where they are not afraid or scared to contradict another member, for the good of the country.

6) There is humility within the team to value each others opinions and submit to a different opinion than yours when appropriate.

As Hemantha has said, these are the underlying factors which have contributed to Sri Lanka's victories in their attempt to militarily crush the LTTP terrorists – an eventuality many pundits predicted impossible.

The lack of these very attributes in the LTTP hierarchy is one of the very reasons the LTTP are on the verge of extinction at the hands of SLDF.

This is suicidal for Diaspora donkeys that funded terrorism. No wonder they are setting themselves on fire and jumping off bridges!

Ian said...

The president is the commander in chief of the armed forces, but he/she will always be a civilian. Presidents of countries always consult the force commanders before they make decisions that relates to security. (weekly security briefings of US president etc.)

Ceasefire is a political decision and hence needed to be taken in consultation with and also with the agreement of the force commander. If we had a commander who has to be a 'yes man' who need politcal blessing to survive (a certain Daluwatte comes to mind), then the chances of a debacle would be there. Look for exmaples in all oter government ministries (thanks to 1972/1977 constitution that made the civil service subsevient to the political system) with backboneless yes men who nod their heads to any decision of a ministers/politicians.

BTW wanting to have the civil service under politcal clout is the reason the President is not appointing the Constitutional council. I wish there are more ministers like GR and Civil servants like SF.

You are wasting your time on this forum Misinformation. The nuances of Civil-Military Relations theories will be completely lost on most bloggers here including those from the Sri Lankan securocracy.

The joys of dealing with an unbridled Military commander, who won’t tolerate how his democratic government is required to respond to various realities and exigencies, are yet to be experienced in Sri Lanka. When General Fonseka’s contract expires towards the end of the year (it has been extended once already), I think possibly a very educating era will dawn for the country. Will Fonseka become the next Bainimarama or will he retire quietly like Büyükanıt?

This blog is a forum for Sinhala far rightists and no matter how often you assert passionately that you are celebrating the great victory of the SLA and the final demise of the LTTE, any moderate tendencies displayed will be viewed as covert support for the Tigers. This is why you were accused of being Sun Tzu’s Disciple. He was another erudite blogger (I can’t remember if he was a Tamil or not). STD was seen off months (perhaps years) ago by extremists such as exhibit one: Sam Perera.

Simple Sam has been bandying assassination lists around the blogosphere for a while now. If Sri Lankan Intelligence isn’t keeping a close eye on him, it’s not doing its job. My advice is just to watch these blogs, and the associations being evolved via them, because I have a feeling they hold some of the seeds of networks like the Ergenekon.

For your information, The Scum of Sri Lanka list is to preserve the anti Sri Lankan acts of nefarious elements in Sri Lanka. That is to make sure that the people of Sri Lanka will not forget such acts. It is about ideological and political defeat of these elements. These people must live, not die, in shame and regret for their blatant anti Sri Lankan acts. It is all about ideological and political defeat, nothing else.

Pankadu Lanka and Ian,

It is great analysis, however your effort may be a wasted one since Disinformation is not here to reason out. She is here to spread disinformation, doubt, and disunity among Sri Lankans. She derogatorily call the commander of army a servant of the president. That is a subtle attempt to inject doubt in to our minds in a time everything is going ok as far as the defeat of terrorists. Her sidekick "Paul" also has entered the scene.

One should wonder why they they engage in this kind of acts in this moment. I have no hesitation to expose such subtle attempts to disturb our country in disguise of "moderates."

Pankadu Lanka and Ian,

It is appears that we got a new anti Sri Lankan monkey, namely Paul. I wonder where these moderates were when LTTE committed many crimes against Sri Lanka and people. Perhaps just like those NSS fringe lunatics epitomized by Wickramabahu Karunarathne, he believes that LTTE terrorists has a special place in the world with inalienable right to terrorize the nations. We shall bend over backwards to pave the way for Sun Dog.

Miss Information, even though she uses a style similar to STD, her focus is little bit different. She is here to cast doubt in the current system and to create cracks. She swung in to action in lightening speed when she saw a tiny opportunity in the act of the president consulting the commander of the army. That is a huge opportunity for her to get her disinformation out.

I have the feeling that Paul is somebody out of my "Scum of Sri Lanka" list or somebody who is politically aligned with one of those scum.

In the weeks and months to come, we will see more of their subtle anti Sri Lankan action. My message to them is that any of their anti Sri Lankan acts will be followed to wherever they go and whenever they go in whatever the form they go.

I notice you could not and did not refute my claim that the Generals serve the Commander-in-Chief (that would be the President Sam)

You are a subhuman LTTE undercover terrorist. You are here to spread disinformation in disguise of a moderate. You are not in the "Scum of Sri Lanka" list and many steps beyond the list. Terrorist likes you don't deserve the right to live in a civilized society, let alone getting answers to questions. As I said earlier, you have a very special place in Sri Lanka's unmarked graves reserved for faceless and nameless terrorists. That is my message to any terrorist who try to destroy my country.

LRRU said...

Guys,

Mahinda is doing the same Mistake other Leaders did;

After reading DW article & mahinda's Dimplomacy I'm loosing credibility about him.

Why can't he agree with Gota to wipe out the fuckers.

Sam Perera said...

LRRU,

I agree with you. MR is doing a mistake by letting LTTE to keep hostages in the long run. There is no diplomatic approach we can try with LTTE. They need to be wiped out without a delay. The sooner we remove VP, the lesser the pains the civilians have to go through. I hope that the common sense will prevail here.

Miss Information said...

Dear Sam


I suspect you fell high, hard and head-first from the stupid tree.

It is folks like you who make Sri Lanka a dangerous place to live instead of the paradise everyone should enjoy together in harmony.



Peace be upon you and may wisdom one day find the door to your cruel heart.

Bogus words of wisdom from a terrorist like you mean nothing to me. Please expend your energy elsewhere.

Sam Perera said...

LRRU,

The worst we can do to us is to demoralize our soldiers at this point of time. Our message to the soldiers should be that we need to finish the LTTE off soon.

Mahen said...

LRRU and others,

Do you guys trust DW articles or any of these blogs over president of Sri Lanka?

We can assure discussions were not related to any kind of holt.

So guys, please do not spread unwanted crap at this last minute.

Back to military matters after these unseemly spats.

What is the band that lots of SL soldiers put around the forward part (near the front sight) of their T-56s? Is it to hold the thing together or something else?

Also, I've not seen a single smoker amongst the SL combat troops shown on the news reports. Are they forbidden from smoking or is it just too hot to smoke?

And a simple question for Miss Information requiring only a 'Yes' or 'No'.

Do you support the current SLA military offensive, which has been ordered by a democratically elected government, to destroy the military capacity of the LTTE?

Sam Perera said...

All right Mahen,

It is 20 minutes pass midnight and it is April 15th. We are waiting to see the thunder run today. I simply hope that we will save every innocent civilian while eliminating every single terrorist.

Yes. Enthusiastically and without question I support the military and the GoSL in their quest to eradicate and destroy the LTTE. They are a pox on mankind and regardless of any reasonable issues the Tamils in the North and East have there can be no room in this world for terrorists and their ilk.

I include the child conscripting war criminal Karuna in this as well and believe he should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

I do not think that victory should be had at any cost though as that is the same ragged dogma that drives extremists like the LTTE to acts of horror and inhumanity.

The GoSL needs to do the right thing the right way to prove that this is the manner in which decent people conduct themselves regardless of the situation.

Has the GoSL made mistakes along the way?

Yes... in particular the suspension of certain personal freedoms and the freedom of the press but they are without question well within their rights to conduct lethal actions against this brutal regime of VP and his minions.

Is that clear enough for you?

Puligal is a joke but so is your friend Sam who has been attacking me and insulting me all over said blogs because I am also critical of GoSL mistakes and am in favour of a cease-fire as means to remove the hostages as opposed to Sam's desire to kill everyone in the NFZ to attain his goals.

Mahen said...

Folks,

Don't stay up. Even if there is a thunder run, we won't hear of it.

Rest assured that the Army Commander is full behind MR, Gota's loyalty to his elder brother is unquestionable. Both Gota and SF support MR's actions. Just remember that Sri Lankan lives (SLA and Civilians in the NFZ, hell even the remaining LTTE) will be saved if we play this out carefully than adopt a scorched earth policy.

Remember we are a small country with limited monetary resources who have got used to living on hand outs from foreign countries (thank you very much UNP and JR), we have to play the diplomatic cards carefully.

We are not blowing our own trumpet here, but weeks ago we said that the SLA will suspend military actions once they reach the borders of the NFZ, we said this before anyone else in the media did. Just remember that a temporary suspension of offensives does not amount to a ceasefire, the Govt. likes to call it a "Humanitarian Pause".

We have one thing to say, its a New Year aspiration. Can we all buy a shovel and a hoe, dig up the neglected fertile lands and grow our own food and be self sufficient once and for all! Then we don't have give a flying f&(&ck about what the international community thinks.

PS, we know what some LTTE bloggers are trying to do. A while ago we mentioned that the LTTE stooges have been ordered to spread a malicious piece of propoganda that SF is preparing for a coup. Don't fall for this crap, SF has no interest in politics.

Sam Perera said...

Mango said...

Miss Info,

That's a fair (if wordy) answer. Despite all the omissions and nasty deals, no insurgency will ever be fought without human rights abuses. I don't think Karuna will be (or should be) prosecuted for his crimes/actions during his LTTE time, if that's what's required to bring peace. And if his desire to be a national, bridge-building politician is proven with action and words.

The Northern Ireland peace process had an identical dilemma. Terrorists and murderers were released from prison or given amnesty as part of an overall peace deal. The UK public hated it. The tabloids were outraged. But to their credit, the government stuck by the deal. It's not perfect, but its better than a never-ending war and after 30+ years, we need this to stop.

As you say, its what happens after crushing the LTTE that will determine Sri Lanka's long-term peace and prosperity and put the seal on MR's far-sightendess as a national politician and not a sectarian, purely Singhalese politician.

It must be a magnanimous peace and not one based on revenge and humiliation.

Diyasena said...

Miss information,

Very well..I will give you the benefit of the doubt on puligal..But please enlighten us as to how a ceasefire would help free the trapped civilians? The civilians numbers moving from LTTP to government controlled areas have dropped to one or two (down from hundreds per day post Anandapuram)..When there is less pressure on the LTTP from the military they can concentrate more of their resources to prevent civilians from fleeing? SL troops need to take over the NFZ..granted there will be some casualties but every precaution should (and will) be taken to minimise that number..A prolonged ceasefire will only prolong the suffering of civilians both inside and outside the NFZ..

Diyasena said...

on another note..There is no coup in the making..whoever dreamt that up should be committed..SF and Co fimly believe that the military is their to protect the democracy and not practice it..I am beginning to feel DW might indeed be doing what Mahen did earlier with EF..First DW reported a rift between the division commanders and now between GR and MR

Sam Perera said...

I hope that our Army will protect this brave son of Mother Lanka with all the capacity we have. He is a true son of Mother Lanka and the people in the south should be proud of Sri Lankans like this. May we get all energy and resources to settle these Sri Lankans in their homes as soon as possible.

Romeo said...

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

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

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

Plan must include following out comes.

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

How can we achieve the above?

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

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

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

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

During this transition more civilians can escape terror clutches.

What do you all think?

I appreciate this approach but how far does one extend this type of amnesty? Keep in mind that Karuna, like VP, has committed crimes against humanity and on one hand the GoSL have called for his head while it suited them but now this criminal is a Minister? Being given a position in power is different than given an amnesty. What if VP asked for the same deal?

I should also point out that Karuna is a divisive person in the East and not trusted by many of the very people he now represents without having ever stood for office.

I concur to a point but the Northern Ireland situation was different in that the IRA had a viable political wing whereas the TNA are not. None of the front-line fighters of the IRA were given Ministerial positions... but like you I to think that swallowing a tough pill is better than endless war.

The civilians, at this point, represent a very tricky situation. Having spent time in Killi I assure you that some of them want to stay while others are likely stuck there although they want to leave but cannot for a variety of reasons. Extricating any or all of them is problematic and now represents the biggest short-term problem for the GoSL.

The Military do not want to kill innocent civilians and the LTTE are only too happy to see just that happen as it would serve to strengthen the hand of their supporters in Sri Lanka and bolster their propaganda claims forwarded by the diaspora.


Given that the LTTE are boxed in and should not be able to escape, I think the smart play here is to wait them out and let them make the first mistake. Eventually they will run out of munitions and, as sad as it is for the civilians, worsening conditions will convince many to move out.


There is no easy answer but if the GoSL play their hand right the LTTE (who are better in sight(s) than out of sight) can be marginalised both locally and, as importantly, internationally.


A few more weeks or months of deplorable living conditions for the hostages is preferable to being killed as collateral damage in combat and the GoSL needs to show the world who the true guardians of the people are.


Allow me some time to further this thesis.

Miss Info,

Karuna may only be an intermediate-stage politician and his support base is uncertain. No-one knows how successful he'll be. But, he was still following VP's orders regarding massacres etc.

Of course the GOSL called for his head prior to his defection. But afterwards, we're all friends and ready to forgive and understand. Not a perfect defence, but.... you must realise there are no clean hands in this war.

Fatty VP will meet the same fate as Wijeweera, unless he bites hard on that cyanide. We all know, there will be no long life or forgiveness for VP. Think of Eichmann's eventual fate in Israel, but without the benefit of a trial.

The IRA had the brains to have a political wing - everyone knew it was the same thing, but it allowed them (Sinn Fein) to maintain a facade of saying 'it's nothing to do with us, guv', when questioned about IRA attacks. The LTTE had highly developed military brains but rather stunted political brains.

None of the front-line fighters of the IRA were given Ministerial positions...

Au contraire: Martin McGuinness, the Chief of Staff of the IRA is now Deputy First Minister (i.e. joint PM with his Protestant counterpart.) See what the lure of a ministerial car can get you? :)

If you think Karuna's position is incredible, how about McGuinness standing shoulder to shoulder with his previously sworn enemy, the head of the Police (the agent of the British State) & his Protestant counterpart, condemning an IRA splinter group's attacks on British soldiers? I couldn't believe my eyes or ears.

Yet again, David Blacker nails the whole civilian hostage/genocide issue:
http://tinyurl.com/cn4zaz

The dilemma, to be solved by GOSL is how to affect the "speedy and efficient destruction of the LTTE, without huge Tamil civilian casualties, within a limited timeframe and to keep the hypocritical, lecturing, finger-wagging, 'we know best',
"don't mention Iraq, Gaza, Fallujah or Afghanistan," Western bloc at bay.

We all know that what the LTTE want above all, is huge Tamil civilian casualties in this last phase. It will enable them to continue the 'genocide' mantra from the safe havens of London, Toronto and the other 'Eelamised' Western cities.

BTW, I have no interest in 'sarong raised' mode of discussion. It contributes nothing and obscures much.

McGuinness was not appointed to his position nor did he gain that position while the IRA were engaging the British forces prior to the peace accords. There is a significant difference.

He also, to the best of my knowledge, was not being sought out as a war criminal by various international bodies unlike Karuna who clearly was involved in the abduction and conscription of children as soldiers which is, by international law, a war crime.


(Charles Taylor is an example closer to Karuna and he is presently being held to account for very similar crimes against humanity.)

McGuinness and Karuna... neither are saints and both sinners.

Fighting resumes after 48-hour ceasefire
Sri Lankan troops resumed their offensive against Tamil Tiger rebels in the northeast at the end of a 48-hour ceasefire, the two sides said.

A military spokesman said security forces restarted operations against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

The pro-rebel Tamilnet website said both sides began exchanging rocket and gunfire as the military's unilateral two-day ceasefire ended at midnight.

After losing large swathes of territory they once controlled, the remaining guerrillas are now boxed into a narrow strip of jungle in the northeast where they are vastly outnumbered.

An LTTE demand for a permanent truce was rejected by the government.

Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse, who called the ceasefire only to coincide with the traditional New Year on Monday and Tuesday, said his troops were on the verge of total victory.

The Tigers have been accused of holding tens of thousands of civilians in the shrinking territory still under their control as a human shield.

The government had wanted the Tigers to free civilians during the break in fighting, but military officials said there was no large exodus over the past two days.

"As bullets fired by the SLA were whizzing over him, TamilNet correspondent reported from the safety zone, warning that a mass human tragedy would unfold if SLA advances offensive push into the safety zone as it seems it is aiming for bifurcating and capturing a part of the so-called safety zone."

Norway is terrorism

It is possible to trace fundraising and bank accounts to the LTTE organisations the last 20 years. Bank accounts in Den norske Creditbank, Bergenbank and Sparebanken Midt-Norge was found before the 1990. Aftenposten, a major Norwegian newspaper, revealed in an article in 2001 that Norwegian authorities have been allowing transfer of funds to the Tamil Tigers, Hamas, ETA and other person organisations. "Those missing were apparently overlooked on the UN list, and Norwegian authorities have been reluctant to add them for fear of unfairly exposing innocent bank customers, and risking damage claims." Even in 2004 there are no restrictions of transfers of funds to the LTTE from Norway. According to LTTE they have six offices in Norway. The LTTE is hiding under more legitimate organisation like the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) and The Tamil Coordinating Committee (TCC). Fifty persons works in the TCC network in Norway. The LTTE also has a significant Norwegian support structure for fundraising and propaganda activities. LTTE fundraising in Norway is estimated that more than 5 million US dollars. The increasing Tamil community (10.000 ++) in Norway is paying fees to LTTE and LTTE is involved in business activities in Norway. The LTTE propaganda activities have been successful in Norway. It is quite obvious the LTTE have been able to sell "their story" to the Norwegians and received the support of the Norwegian government and military. With more than 10.000 Tamils in Norway, LTTE has become a political important partner for Norwegian political parties. LTTE front organisations in Norway have received millions of Norwegian Kroner from the Norwegian Government and Municipalities, allegedly to support their cultural and integration activities.

Staying neutral or seeking “the middle path”

Is there a space between right and wrong? I mean, can there be situations neither right nor wrong? The concept of right and wrong as the only option were merely elements of Western outlook of the world, which is mainly shaped by the Jewish thinking. However, Eastern way of thinking is more advanced and has emerged to form modern scientific outlook of the world. There is an undefined space between extremes.

LTTE is a terrorist organization according to us, while certain others see LTTE as their savior. Of cause there are those who are likely to stand between. You ask them if LTTE is a terrorist organization, they’ll say yes and to negate that yes, they’ll say that Sri Lankan Government (SLG) is also carrying out terrorist activities. So they stay in the middle, leaving us nowhere. Well, sometimes indecision is the best decision. UN adopts this on many issues. When Israel attacks Palestine and kill civilians openly, UN will just stay put claiming that they don’t want to take sides. What does it finally account for, the interest of the terror initiators. Oh yes, I have forgotten, it benefits those who are in indecision. Well, they earn their buck or two without much of a life skill, aren’t they?

So LTTE is neither right nor wrong and destroying LTTE is also neither right nor wrong. But killing civilians by LTTE and SLG is wrong. So what does it say? What does all these words amounts to?...Nothing man, clearly and absolutely nothing. It is as if you are saying there is nothing wrong and something wrong at the same time. Interestingly, they claim this to be the middle path. What middle path is here? This is the total opposite of middle path. Middle path is a real and it exists. This is the point of non existence. This point of view, this world outlook does not exist! So it is not the middle path. It is not the point of light but the point of darkness.

If both parties are right and both parties are wrong at the same time, what the heck do you write about then? Ah, the answer brings out the essence of it. They are worried about the civilian sufferings, they say. Now, who are the civilians that these middle path gurus preach about? We all know that a country would have a single military institute. All others are civilians in this war. Well, they might take weapons, but they are civilians. That means they are not a part of that country’s legal military institution. Now we see the light, right? They are worried about LTTE terrorists in civilian outfits, they are worried about under aged LTTE soldiers in civilian outfits, and they are worried about Piripaharn in Civilian outfit. That’s what they are worried about, civilians.

No, these middle path minders who entangle us in a never ending time space spiral do not tell us how to reach the end. Because, for them the end does not mean a thing. End does not generate money hence not profitable. Only means of keeping the problem alive can generate infinite profits. So they take us through the never ending spiral. They say, military action is not the solution, but negotiation. Fail once try and try and try they say until the down of a new universe. This is their solution.

Now, can one fight without spilling blood?, probably in your dream and not in the real world. Fine, you keep your outlook and waste a lot of words. Anyway, you know that “first there was the word!” and nothing else. We will violate human rights, we will get killed in the process and make sure that LTTE is eliminated. We don’t believe in your middle path anymore... and there is nothing you can do about It, is there?

Come On Boys, Just Go for It. Finish It Off..Sri Lanka army 'resumes fighting'
By Anbarasan Ethirajan
BBC News, Colombo

Sri Lanka's army says it has restricted the rebels to the safe zone
Pro-Tamil Tiger websites say Sri Lankan troops have resumed their offensive against the rebels at the end of a two-day ceasefire in the north-east.

But a military spokesman has denied the reports, saying soldiers were only observing rebel activities inside the safe zone set up to protect civilians.

The two-day ceasefire ended at midnight local time.

The government had announced the pause in fighting to allow civilians trapped in the conflict zone to leave.

It seems to have had little effect in enabling civilians to leave the war zone.

<

The pro-rebel websites said the military had resumed its offensive using mortars and gunfire near a no-fire zone in the Mullaitivu district.

They said the Tamil Tigers were fiercely resisting the army's attempt to capture a rebel defence line.

But the Sri Lankan military spokesman has strongly denied the claim.

"We have not started any offensive. We are only keeping a close watch on rebel movements," Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara told the BBC.

The government announced a two-day unilateral ceasefire from Monday to coincide with the Sri Lankan New Year and asked civilians trapped inside the war zone to move out, but only a few hundred responded to the call.

The UN says that more than 100,000 civilians have been trapped in the no-fire zone and has called on the rebels to allow the civilians to leave the area.

But the rebels say the civilians do not want to leave because they fear the military.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan government has rejected a fresh appeal by Tamil Tiger rebels for a permanent ceasefire with security forces.

"They did not let any civilians leave the war zone during the two-day truce. In fact, they were seen strengthening their defence lines using civilian labour in the period," Sri Lankan foreign secretary Dr Palitha Kohona told the BBC.

There has been no reaction from the rebels on the latest charges by the government.

The Sri Lankan military says troops have surrounded the safe zone on all three sides and are poised to enter the area in pursuit of the rebels and to rescue the civilians.

Aid agencies have warned that there could be a bloodbath on the beaches of north-eastern Sri Lanka if the confrontation is taken inside the safe zone.

Chinese & Libyan loans help Sri Lanka better than IMF

The two USD 500 million loans pledged by China and Libya last week have made the controversial IMF loan that Sri Lanka has applied almost look redundant, economic sources said. From a point of desperation the government has now reached a stage from where it can tell the IMF that it can do well without its loan, the sources added. The govt. was unhappy with the conditions attached to the IMF loan from the beginning.

The IMF bailouts, known as 'stand-by arrangements', are usually the end result of past fiscal and alleged monetary mis-management. But under an IMF stand-by arrangement some fiscal restraint and brakes on money printing and government expenditure is expected, which will restore economic stability, bring back balance of payments sustainability and external fiscal solvency.

Guys,

About the tamilnet report,analysis

I think our guys are fighting for the last earth bund even though they are denying
I think the military strategy here after would be attcking & not giving infor & denying that there was no attack; BBC will continue to say "Can not verify due to No independent jounalists" then we are up on the deal.....good move

However

Sea Tiger infiltration could be a diversionary attck

They talk about a humanitarian disaster "Any Moment" this means the Tigers are planning to kill large number of civilians to draw attention to them

Foreing Protests also will dilute cos they know if they continue to harass UK/US/Canada Public Tamil Diaspora will get projected as a menanace to them & it would be a negative point.

Already Norway opposition has asked to deport some of them.

Canada has told No lifting of the Ban what so ever.....

Rohitha seems to be getting around Miliband

Boucher seems to be happy cos his request for a 48 hr ceasfire was given by Governement, 7 days was not given cos US couldn't gurantee in writing

India going for elections tomorrow; and all have better things to worry than the safe zone

TNA fuckers will be asked to take part in all party conference by India after the meeting

Please note these are my analysis; your'll are more than welcome to correct me; appreciate it

What else?????

tamilnet says

Unprecedented carnage, SLA turns firepower on civilian zone
[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 April 2009, 05:42 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Wednesday morning turned its artillery, mortar, 40 mm cannon, Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) and gunfire ranging from 50 caliber machine guns to LMG fire into the so-called safety zone, causing a carnage within a short period of time between 7:40 and 10:40 a.m. killing and maiming hundreds of civilians, according to the latest update by TamilNet correspondent in Vanni reporting from the area under attack. Civilians were struggling to transport the wounded to the hospital and many of the injured were lying along the roadside as gunfire and artillery barrage by the SLA continues. "It is impossible to assess casualty details, but at least 180 civilians are feared killed within 3 hours in the area between Mu'l'livaaykkaal to Pokka'nai."

The wounded civilians who attempt to move towards the hospital whenever they sense a break between the attacks, are getting blocked by targeted gunfire from SLA positions from the outer perimeter of the so-called No-Fire / Safety zone.

"The seriously wounded civilians are dying as their transport has been blocked by the SLA firing on medical transport carrying white flags. The casualty figures are expected to rise," said TamilNet correspondent. As he was filing this report, SLA gunners shot a man who was trying to transport a wounded victim while holding a white flag. "He was badly injured in his head."

"On another incident, 9 wounded civilians who were being transported in tractor from Mu'l'livaaykkaal, carrying white flag, were killed when a shell fired by the SLA landed on the tractor."

"Many wounded civilians are lying along the sides of the road, awaiting help." The dead were being buried on the spot.

"There are civilians lying dead and wounded inside their tarpaulin shelters, said civilians arriving from Valaignarmadam," TamilNet correspondent said, reporting amidst shelling and gunfire.

"Thousands of civilians are lying on open terrain, as there are not enough bunkers in the area between Valignarmadam and Mu'l'li-vaaykkaal, that has come under SLA barrage."

"Almost all the bunkers are open bunkers and those who remain inside them are experiencing untold trauma as the 'no fire zone' has been turned into 'fire zone' by the SLA."

The SLA was firing artillery from all the corners, from Mu'l'liyavazhai, Nedungkea'ni, Oddichuddaan, Puthukkudiyiruppu, Theavipuram and Chaalai.

RPGs, 40 mm cannons and 50 caliber guns were targeting the road from Puthumaaththa'lan hospital to Mu'l'livaaykkaal.

The confrontation between the LTTE and the SLA was taking place in the outer perimeter and at one of the last bunds close to the gateway to the so-called safety zone. After heavy fighting along the frontiers, the SLA turned its firepower onto the civilians.

People have not eaten anything since Tuesday evening.

"There are no words to describe the plight of the children," concluded TamilNet correspondent in his update filed at 10:40 a.m. local time.

Meanwhile, medical sources at Puthumaaththa'lan makeshift hospital said they only received 38 wounded and said 12 more wounded were dead when their relatives managed to bring them to the hospital.
