No looking back

Dear readers,

Today marks the first anniversary of the end of the LTTE terror campaign that has gripped our beloved motherland for over 3 decades. The physical and emotional scars to our nation needs no mention, people from all communities be it Tamil, Singhala, Muslim, Burgher etc. have suffered at the hands of a misguided buffoon and his clan hailing from the smuggler community in VVT. This ass clown met his Waterloo on the banks of the Nanthikadal exactly one year and two days ago, his annihilation was announced on May the 18th. This same nitwit's mother is now lovingly cared for by the GoSL whilst his "brethren" in Tamil Nadu refused entry to this ailing old woman. GoSL is taking care of her not as the mother of a bandit, but as the wife of a recently deceased Government Civil Servant. Had his parents known of the existence of "Preethi", all this suffering may not have happened. But let us not blame them, let's blame Preethi brand's poor marketing in VVT. We digress, we wanted to put in a good word for Preethi. Back to the subject at hand, here's how EFT would like our readers to ponder on the future development:

1) Tamil Diaspora Investment in the North East.

EFT reported that the diaspora are tired of the overseas LTTE network's attempt to form a fantasy TGTE, they have re-soundly rejected the TGTE and have turned towards developing the Tamil majority areas. A myriad of new Tamil businesses have sprung up along the A9, Jaffna town, Trinco, Batti etc. Tourism has grown exponentially, they are truly reaping the rewards sown by our soldiers who made immense sacrifices in eliminating terror. EFT is heartened to see Tamil investment returning to areas long neglected, funds which used to go fund AK-47s are now going towards funding hopper and kottu shops and pharmacies that sell Preethi, parents of future terror leaders take note.

2)Government policies

Whilst EFT does not entirely agree with all of the Government's recent policies, we request our readers to bear with the government as we truly believe they are keen on the country's development. For example, the appointment of the Defence Secretary to head the UDA is a stroke of genius.

3) Investment continues to flood in

Peace time brings in investment, we won't dwell on these, but you can see for yourself the number of tourism and corporate deals being signed on a daily basis, the pace is rapid that the BOI has set upon an ambitious expansion plan to cope with investor demand. Sri Lanka has been rated as the number one tourist destination for 2010 by the New York Times, need we say more.

EFT would like to thank all our readers for their loyalty and continued interest in this site. We also thank our valuable sources who continue to give us useful snippets of info, although admittedly these are not as frequent as before. We have been a bit bored in the past year and some of us have retired due to the lack of defence news, we say that its a good thing. We are glad to report that EFT's chief editor is heading your way.

We will keep you posted and we would like to remind you that modayas will always be modayas.

LTTE overseas network crumbling

The overseas LTTE empire is falling apart before our very eyes. The ill conceived and hastily arranged TGTE is the primary cause of the downfall. This coupled with GoSL intelligence operatives infiltrating diaspora circles and sowing discord among them has dealt a deathly blow to the overseas LTTE network. LTTE candidates contesting in the TGTE have resorted to caste and sectarian politics and many candidates have withdrawn their nominations and some have had their wins mysteriously annulled. The LTTE diaspora is confused on who exactly has won or not won, their confidence in the nascent TGTE has diminished. The functioning of the TGTE even before it has officially inaugurated provides insight into how a Tamil Eelam Government would have worked had the UNP and Norway succeeded in giving it to them, sectarian, caste based politics and infighting would have been rife.

We will keep you posted.

LTTE remnants in three way split

Reports reaching us indicate that the remnants of the LTTE now active in the diaspora have split into three groups.

Following the defeat of the LTTE on May 18, the LTTE split into two, namely the KP group and the Castro group. The KP group has gone underground following the defection of their leader to the GoSL side. This group is still carrying out covert activities to encourage the diaspora to reconcile with mainstream Sri Lankan society and join in the reconciliation efforts of the GoSL. Recent New Year activities in London (especially in former LTTE areas of East London) indicate that they have been successful to some extent as a large number of diaspora Tamils joined their Singhala brethren in New Year festivities.

Meanwhile the LTTE hardliners namely the Castro group headed by LTTE Overseas Intelligence Chief Arivazhakan who were busy organising the fantasy Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) have split into two factions due to internal infighting over the composition of the imaginary TGTE. One group is led by Arivazhakan himself (a Castro loyalist) and the other by a US based lawyer who was involved in the UNP peace process.

More and more splits are expected as the GoSL intelligence operatives have somewhat been successful in infiltrating diaspora circles and sowing discord among them.
