    Two women who were injured in a bomb explosion rest on a bed at a hospital in Moneragala January 16, 2008. A roadside bomb tore through a Sri Lankan bus killing 24 people and wounding dozens on Wednesday, officials said, as a six-year ceasefire between the government and Tamil Tiger rebels formally expires

  8. Guys

    What has happened has happened. the fact of the matter is we are at war.
    As Wimal Weerawansa once said we should get away from our middle class mentality and gear ourselves for the imminent challenge.

    Now this is an official civil war fought 24X7.LTTE has this uncanny ability to surprise everybody. When you anticipate bombs in Colombo they go and attack the remotest part of the country.

    I think it is high time that the civilians make themselves a part of this war by organizing themselves. It is ridiculous that we run short of blood (For less than 100 casualties) when we knew well enough that the LTTE would do some thing today (16th).

    There are plenty of things the government should do apart from leading the war effort which are essential to overcome this menace (such as cutting down their unnecessary expenses) .

    However, I for one do not blame the government for everything. Government and the forces have a certain capacity. If we do not lend our support, I think we will fall short of our expectations. I suggest the following actions as a part of our support for this war,
    1. Stop all strikes, protests, etc for at least 6 months.
    2. Form vigilance committees and make it mandatory for each adult in the south to work at least one day per week in protecting their neighborhood/village/city.
    3. Cut down at least one meal per week and donate that for the war.

    These are some of my initial thoughts and I would welcome your ideas on this.

  13. This is war.... things don't always go our way, and today was a bad day for our country. Seems like their plan is to attack poorly defended remote areas now, instead of our major cities? It might be effective as the population in these rural areas may be easily scared.

    And guys, it's no use cursing the LTTE supporters here on this blog.... they didn't do this, and anyway they'll be even more motivated. Let's just ignore them.

  18. I'm afraid there is a possibility that schools may be closed for 3 months, give or take. Terrorists are targetting families and children, all civilians. Tons of attacks are going to take place around our country, and plenty of children will be harmed if no action is taken.

    If the children are not going to school, they wount be on the roads, and a large amount of damage can be reduced.

    As far as I know O/L and A/L exams will be delayed to a great extent and it will take time to recover, and a large amount of homework will be given to children if such a break is provided.

    such a break could start from tomorrow, from next week, from the end of the month, or never at all.

    But if such a long break is given, please bear in mind that Its for the safety of our own children, the future generation.

    Who cares what the international media says? Let them say that Sri Lanka is collapsing because education is destroyed in the country. Ignore them, because we are not collapsing. We are fighting till the end, while also keeping our families safe.

    And I also hope they renew the permanents barricades or have frequent checks within the major cities and around. Many people felt much safer with them, and people do feel more endangered without them. Its the great rich snobs who go around grumbling about it; the common man is content even though it can be a nuisance at times. Problem is that the common man does not have a say with the rich, selfish snobs around.

    May the Triple Gem Bless the Guardians of our Nation!

  19. onecountry,
    How can the police do anything, unless they've got helicopters to get there instantly? The police stations are probably miles away (they don't have them like they do in the urban areas). This is a rural area, covered by forests. They probably just come out, do their job and just go back in. You need specially trained trackers to find where they went after that (these forests are spread over a vast area) By the time the police get to the scene they probably would be gone.

  21. The Boss,
    'so this is a defence-related article? my ass.'

    Are you opening up a debate as to whether your ass might be defence related??

    With respect to the thread, it concerns the welfare of Sri Lankan citizens hurt from a terrorist attack and how these victims might be helped.

    Would that not be considered defence related?? The main idea of 'defence' is the defence of lives in danger during warfare is it not??

    Been a lurker for a while lads and lassies, keep up the interesting and informative posts.

  22. the bossa dickhead thinks that his ass is defence related because poddu used it extensively while he was in wanni as an under aged hotu kolla constantly raped by poddu. Since poddu is related to military, he thinks that his ugly ass which was pounded by poddu and vp is military related too. poor guy.... he immigrated to oslo just to save his backside from that gay poddu....we shud keep our sympathy to this moron.....

  25. "Do you have any updates about today's air force attack please."

    The target was an LTTE bomb factory located in Puthukuduirippu. according to intel it was used to produce locally made IEDs.

    A thick black smoke was observed (UAV footage) over the skies near the target after the raid. A storage building associated with the factory has also been destroyed, according to airforce sources.

  34. First of all my deepest sympathy to all the brothers and sisters on the tragic day.

    I wanted to point out some thing just came to my mind. Don’t you think these kinds of attacks are just to get attention of the international community to Sri Lanka. That would be the best and only solution to halt the ongoing wave of fights. They cant resist to this kind of pressure and they never thought of. So LTTE will do few of these kind of barbaric acts on civilians and in turn get the IC’s attention. I think that is the only thing they can do right at the moment, which is not what we wanted at this moment. They have almost lost its credibility on IC, but they would prefer to start from the beginning as happened in 2002. If you look at the TamilNet now, its obvious how Amnesty shouting on behalf of LTTE, which prove my point.

    Let me say to the people who often come to this blog to sh*t on it, mind you go to a porn site, will give you much pleasure. That will keep you high for next couple of days. Please do that for other’s sake.

  41. DN.. is this true...
    "One Nine Base’ was the LTTE’s code name for their most important intelligence base, located north of Puthukkudiyiruppu, in the general area of Kombavil, Mullaitivu.


    The base was heavily fortified with armed LTTE cadres and also, heavily mined. The base also had several underground bunkers, connected by tunnels. This is one of the bases where LTTE intelligence leaders met and planned their missions.


    On January 12, LTTE intelligence sent a secret message to their military intelligence area leaders to attend an important meeting at the above mentioned base.


    In Colombo, military intelligence was well informed of this scheduled meeting by an informant. Consequently, an intelligence official informed Sri Lanka Air Force of the date and time of the meeting.


    On 14, two young fighter jet pilots were summoned before their commanding officer (for security purposes this column refrains from disclosing the names and ranks of those personnel). The commanding officer briefed the two pilots of their top-secret task and the importance of the operation.


    Supersonic jets took off from the Katunayake Airbase runway towards their target. Within a couple of minutes, they released bombs on One Nine Base. Some leaders managed to escape through a tunnel, but the most important leaders fell victim, on the spot.


    When the news reached the LTTE leadership, they did not allow any civilians to enter the area. Wounded LTTE cadres were transported to one of LTTE’s underground hospitals. The LTTE leadership had given instructions not to reveal the numbers died or their names, because it would demoralise fighting cadres, as well as the Tamil diaspora.


    The air bombing was significant for the Air Force and intelligence because this was the first time one of LTTE’s main intelligence locations was bombed. Many of their intelligence operatives were killed in the attack."

  57. Dulith,

    I disagree with one of your requests. People must not be further forced to suffer by contributing to the war. They are already paying USD 1.5 for defence.

    If one meal is skipped by all, it amounts to a massive loss to the economy; think of all the food stalls, their suppliers, etc.

    The govt should lessen the sufferings; I'm also against putting the country in a war footing banning entertainmenet. We know the economy is going to take a beating this year. To minimise the damage econoic activities should never be stopped. I'm also against curfews.

    But I agree that we must get public participation.

    Chbalk,

    You pointed out the most important issue.

    Actually the LTTE is killing civilians to get the UN/IC here. The UN/IC is the only saviour of the LTTE. The International law does NOT practically bind the LTTE but binds the govt. So if the UN is here it will be like the CFA - LTTE kills SL weeps.

    Also the LTTE wants to show that (very childishly) if they are not treated like a nation they will degenrate to a guerilla group and kill civilians.

    This is further reafirmed by the remarks made by the UNP. Unfortunately Ranil will NEVER EVER fall out with the LTTE.

    Also if the UN is here, Vanni MUST be allowed to be managed by the LTTE as the UN's theory is to maintain the status quo.

    Armed with this understanding SL must maintain law and order and resist all UN/IC attempts to creep into here.

    The SLAF attack was a good response in this regard; it reinforces that the GOSL is still in command. We must not forget that the LTTE is under tremendous pressure from the people living in Vanni to save them from fear; the moment they are convinced that the LTTE is unable to provide that, being typical sri lankans, they will join with their perceived enemy. tamil diaspora has fat bellies, cars, jobs, pleasures, etc. and according to Maslow's hierachchy of needs, their next level need is a seperate nation (self-actualisation!!!!!). But the Vanni fells are at the bottom of it and soon will fall from bad to worse and will do ANYTHING to stay alive.

    What happened in Hamas controlled Palestine is not far away from Vanni.

    But we must also endure alot of nonsense; the most endurace-able group wins attrition warfare.

    I agree with someone who mentioned about the time factor. The longer the war the higher the civilian casualties becuase the more time they must be lucky to avoid harm (probability theory).

    On this other hand, if sri lankans make this a time to unite and be there for one another irrespective of politics (much to the dismay of politicians); that will solve not only the war problem but also the bigger problem of disunity. Lets turn the threat into an opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  59. More have condemned LTTE for the bus bombing and killing MPs.

    But there are more than 200 countries in the IC; only a handful has condemned it.

    No amount of condemnation can stop sri lanka (and any other country). we are going to mince the tigers; thats for sure. The vanni operation did not stop; it continues at the highly profitable attrition stage.

    Don't forget that the war has killed 2.8% of Tamils already compared to just 0.2% of the rest. Therefore we are more than happy to continue with the war!!

    In yesterday's SLAF bombing puthukudurippu was raped violently; more to come, much more to come. Just wait till the mechanised arti brigade start their gadgets. Tigers will be shitting from their mouths.

  66. SLAF bombs killinochchi at 9:30 am today.

    Dfencenet, any targets?

    Seems to be a major event for the LTTE - tamilnet.

    Massive bombardments within consecutive days in puthukuduripu and killinochchi, wow! they must be up to something really BIG.

    TN tries to give the impression that the DPU has abandoned claymore attacks on LTTE after the Buttala attack!! This is a very dangerous siutaion. DPU/LRRP should NEVER bow down to such terror nonsense. If they had, what would happen is the LTTE will made this a habit to intimidate the DPU/LRRP and then the govt. by repeatedly doing same.

    Please understand the mind of the terrorists. Their thinking is simple.

    PROBLEM - DPU/LRRP attacked and killed us (including charles)

    SOLUTION - we attacked civilains

    RESULTS - DPU/LRRP stopped attacking us

    Therefore if a similar sitaution arises in future, the same model will be used by the LTTE.


    SLA/DPU/LRRP?SLAF should not change anything in the North after a LTTE attack.

    On the otherhand it may be a lie after all; hopefully.
