Theepan silent after air strike

On the 30th of January, soldiers of the 53rd and 55th divisions of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) launched a pre emptive strike on LTTE FDL on Nagarkovil, Muhamalai and Kilali. More than 30 LTTE bunkers were destroyed in the fierce fighting that continued for some time. Just a few hours after the limited operation, the Air Force bombed an LTTE operations center south of Muhamalai. This base was supposed to be the command center of senior LTTE leader Theepan. Army intelligence units intercepting LTTE communications observed Theepan's radio chatter stop following the air raid. He has not spoken through radio since then.

Theepan's radio silence may not necessarily mean that he was injured or killed in the air strike. It could just be a security measure to avoid further exposure. However a similar set of events occurred when air force bombed the hideout of LTTE's then eastern commander Sornam's bunker during Vakarai operation. Sornam, wounded by the air strike, maintained radio silence until he escaped to Wanni through the jungles of Trikonamadu.

LTTE has assigned two of its senior leaders to the defence of Muhamalai and Nagarkovil defence line following their failed attempt to capture Jaffna in 2006. Since then, Theepan has been credited with thwarting two major army offensives from the Muhamalai front, once in 2006 and again in 2007. He's usually referred to as "Special Commander Theepan" by pro LTTE media.

  1. Thats a good news. Way to go. SLAF should take out a few more operational commanders. I think they are more valuable than VP. Think of Karuna scenario.

  2. Is it strange LTTE leaders to being silant suddenly via radio messeges?

    In other words does SLA find LTTE leaders stop radio communication without attacks or any special changes?

    How likely LTTE use radio messges to mislead SLA?

  3. these operational commanders in their frontlines are more valued targets than the likes of VP, nadesan etc.. Wish this could happen in mannar front.

    A Piece of good news, if the outcome weighs in our favour.

    Srilankan, thanks for the replies; please visit today's lanka newspapers and you will find the details about the breakthrough in bombings.

  5. ninja,

    I think our intel guys are as clever as these tigers think of themselves if not more. We have a lot of faith in our forces.

    But unfortunately due to some money crows inside the defence establishment, our intel is not allowed to function to its potential. A captain and a person in robes are being detained for supporting terrorist acts, betrayed the country for a mere 7 million deal. isn't our country more worthy than this????

    I mean whats the use if they dont have a country to enjoy the benefits of that deal.

    Traitors should be taken to galle face and shown to the public before they are shot to death. If this is done once it will be deterrent for others.

    This is not only in our side. Money gready people/traitors are there in both sides. VP and lives with the guy who tipoff TS/charls and GR/Sarath F lives with who tipoff his depature. Niether side is perfect. Side having less negatives and more positives wwil win.

  15. Tigers seize SLA weapons in Naakarkoayil clash
    [TamilNet, Thursday, 07 February 2008, 15:57 GMT]
    Heavy fighting erupted between the Sri Lanka Army and the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam Thursday morning at 5:00 a.m. when an SLA unit, using tanks with artillery support fire, attempted to move towards LTTE Forward Defence Line at Naakarkoayil in Jaffna. The SLA sustained heavy casualties in the one-hour fighting, LTTE's Northern Forces Operations Command told reporters who were taken on a tour to Naakarkoayil FDL where the Tigers displayed ammunition and an assault rifle seized by them.


    Fighting went on for an hour in no-man zone at Naakarkoayil when SLA attempted to advance towards LTTE FDL.


    One T-56 assault rifle, ten Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) shells, four torpedoes (land explosive devices), twenty-five hand grenades were among the military hardware seized by the Tigers.

    Casualty details were not available.

    According to eelaththamil it is lt. col akbar. not theeban. however when reading the contents it seems he too is a pretty important taget. he is also called special commander oof anti tank unit. Do you have any verifications for us.

  19. Guys,

    I see all these pro LTTE webistes are wonderful propoganda machines. No wonder innocent tamils falling for their fairy tales. Man can they create or what??

    I think it is one of our weakpoints no proper media to confront them. Though our brave soldiers are beating them up. We should have some mechanism which would tell the braveries of our gallant forces. defence.lk is not doing enough for now. maybe some one who loves the mother land should come with such an idea. I am sure many people will support them.

However, Tigers have been successful in deploying counter measures in minimizing casualties"

    So they are using civilians as human shields again?

  30. Foreign special forces training is paying off for the Tigers big time. LTTE sniper squadrons are picking off SLA teams like bowling pins left, right, and center. It appears MR is willing to expend SLAs best and brightest for pure politics and bankrupt policies.

  40. South of Adampan Falls to Army
    2008-02-08 06:09:15

    MANNAR: UNWAVERING DETERMINATION and valour of trimphant soldiers of the Army, embroiled in one of the history’s worst and most inhuman warfare struck another major blow to terrorists when they dominated and captured a one-square km area, to the south of ADAMPAN, MANNAR this morning (8) after facing stiff resistance of the terrorists.

    Troops now marching forward on all fronts secured this area after beating pockets of Tiger terrorists who had to retreat leaving twelve of their dead fellow-cadres behind.

    Two valiant soldiers sacrificed their lives in their humanitarian mission to rescue besieged villages from grips of LTTE terrorism. Five more War Heroes sustained injuries in the operation.

  42. Upul, shyam and co are trying to distract us from the main topic.

    Guys why are we forgetting the golden rules here. lets keep upto the topic.

    Chamal,
    according their websites akbar was working under theeban, so probably he could be an overall commander for northern sector.

    If his silence going to be permanent then its a very good news for all of the peace loving citizens.

    Coz people like sornam, theeban, karuna(now changed for good) are the real fighters in the front line. not to forget soosai.

    If those figures are taken out of the equation then the lower level cadres will surrender.

    I think the government should have some kind of amnesty program for those conscripts and lower level cadres who are fighting against their will.

    These are valuable lives and could be used for developmental activities. to make them useful citizens.

    I think it is important SLDF take out the hardcores out. most of the other cadres lokks like conscripts brain washed and sent to sacrifice.

    I agree with you. They did this in the east. The govt promised overseas jobs (I think Malaysia) for anyone who surrendered. How many surrendered because of the amnesty is not known.

    There is no harm in trying again in the north either. The 'Marral Papadum' or the village force is the chink in their armor, their achilles heel. This is where breakthroughs can be cheaply had weakening the overall streangth of the LTTE.

  56. I think all the guys barring a few, wants this war to finish. Our sincere hope is the government will use the victory for development rather than using for their own benefits. This war should be the means to an end, rather than end to the means.

    I know many tamil guys in Colombo, There are so many talented and highly potetential people here. We are losing their services because of this problem. So our only hope wipe out the terrorists and begin development.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Now here is what I think.


    Velu has gone underground for one reason.Even if he gets killed in an attack no one will know about it.That way they can keep any news leaking to the outside world.

    The other reason for Velu's dissappearance from the public life may be he is under going a plastic surgery for an evacuation.

    Third reason may be most unlikely, he is sevearly injured few months ago and LTTE is not in a position to show him to the outside world.


    In any case, it is puzzlling to see the Devil Dissappearing an extended period of 73 days.

    Dont lose your focus!!! These guys are born to distract. it is in their genes

    Anybody has updated new on adampan!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well the news is true the area south of Adampan is now under SLA control. It's a matter of time until we reach Adampan town center. LTTE are focusing on defending viduthalaithiv now. It's a far more valuable asset for them than Adampan.

    "
    I think it is one of our weakpoints no proper media to confront them. Though our brave soldiers are beating them up. We should have some mechanism which would tell the braveries of our gallant forces. defence.lk is not doing enough for now."

    Absolutely. We are miles behind LTTE media units in terms of professional reporting. Even though the majority of their news is fabrication and misinformation, they have perfected the art of professional writing. In Sinhalese "Boru unath athatha wage liyanawa".

    Main concern with our media is that they get too emotional in their reports so that they become essays. For example, defence.lk always uses the term "innocent civllians". Civilians are innocent we all know that so why treat the readers like dumbasses? If you write essays, readers would look at the stories with skepticism.

    Another fault is that sometimes defence.lk features articles which are in no way related to defence. These articles are purely political. Well if you want to justify government's view, have a different site for that. Why litter the only two defence news sites with political jargon?

    Anyway we didnt say the above out of hatred. And we are by no means gurus of reporting and you'll find thousands of mistakes made by us if you navigate defencenet posts. But we can afford it because DefenceNet is just a blog which is not official. In contrast, Defence.lk cannot afford to have any mistakes. They are the official mouthpiece of the army and the international media quote from them. Sacrifices the soldiers make on the battlefield should not be ridiculed because of mediocre reporting.

    ReplyDelete
  66. kiri,
    we do not have confirmation on that 800 figure. As we said before sometimes they publish casualties without verification from ground sources. In such cases only 50-75% of the claimed figure may be true.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Guys I have a strong feeling that this adampan is such an important place for them.. they fear once it is captured our forces could go into several fronts from there onwards.

    Also once ADAMPAN falls the other units who are biding for time may go into some big action.

    I think thats their biggest fear.

    Guys only if you could read tamil.. just read the pro tiger websites. they look damn professional and attractive. Any first time looker who doesn't know the ground situ.. will fall head over heels with these tigers.. they are so beautifully crafted.

    "Boru wunath aththa wage liyanawa witharak nevei. hitha eda ganne puluwan tharam aakarshanayak eke thiyenawa"

    ReplyDelete
  71. As for the slow progress on Mannar folks didnt we experience the same in Thoppigala? Even then there were reports about "SLA not being able to move an inch from Narakamulla for several weeks and .....". What happened in the end?

    And AFP reported that "a government operation to capture the rebel enclave of Sampoor was put off due to stiff rebel resistance", just two days before SLA armored units and SF broke into Sampoor city center.
    Mildly put, sometimes foreign media have no clue of the ground reality.

    Wanni will be (and is) harder than Thoppigala. Therefore it requires a carefully planned operation. We can march forward using full force and bearing casualties but ultimately we'll fail (as happened in Jayasikuru). This is just the first phase of Wanni op. In the second phase there will be heavy casualties for both sides. But all these will take time.

  73. defencenet,

    i noticed that recently tamilnet has become more theoritical/political than before.

    soon thereafter, defence.lk also followed the same path.

    in a way you can't blame them also. they cannot run purely on military successes because unfortunately the world community do not like the war. they always want POLITICAL JUSTIFICATIONS for the war.

    if you go to another country's equavalant, you won't see ANY defence news!! Only propoganda you see!

    in this context defence.lk and MCNS are doing a reasonably good job.

    on the part of the LTTE, they are popular in the IC NOT because of their boastings about military/terrorist successes but due to their HIGHLY EXAGGERATED, CRATIVE AND CO-ORDINATED propoganda.

    you may recall how pro-LTTE groups used voluntary torture like offerings made by tamils in kataragama to fool the foreigners in the early 1990s.

    the IC had only sympathy towards the LTTE front groups; they quickly realised that the LTTE took them for a ride. but still pro-LTTE groups are very very active in playing the SYMPATHY CARD.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I wish only those web administrators are on our side, we would have already won not only the war but also IC and specially the affected communities.

    They are brilliant in manipulating the media war.Even after so much of losses and being restricted to a very small area, they could project still themselves as the only winning side its amazing!!!

    I think we cant blame upul,shyam and boss etc.. on one hand as they have fallen victims for this briliant propoganda war.

    I totally agree with your comments on defence.lk and also army.lk .. I think Tamil propaganda mechanism is far ahead of defence.lk.
    In fact I have seen very good writers in this blog and they could write of course better than defence.lk writers ..I think this is because of political appointment..etc..they should undergo proper training on how to write the war reporting course…
    On the other hand their FONT type and the size they use it’s not attractive either…
    If you read army.lk or defence.lk there are so many mistakes and also they use one word e.g meantime word many times in the report…that makes the reader tired and bit unconvinced about the report …
    What I think defence.lk & army.lk must hire some good writers asap…
    Today war is not just war in the battle field it’s a game to play with minds of people..so to convey the message you want you must write or speak well.. so defence.lk and army.lk must change their reporting/writing method…this should be done soon rather than later …

    I would like to thank Riyaz for his input to the blog

  80. DN,
    agree; thy can improve.

    But they should not harp on WAR too much; even the world super powers do not do that!

    defence reporting is not about war per se; it is about,

    1. national and public security
    2. law and order
    3. a sense of security
    4. a humane face of defence

    now janes defence; strategypage have a different agenda and defence.lk should never be like that. the closest defence.lk should get is the mod.uk, etc. that i showed above and others.

    we should not forget that in other countries most war reporting is done by mediamen at the battlefield!!! or quoting military men in the battlefield. they also heavily corroborate civilian sources.

    in SL, unfortunately the govt. & LTTE do not allow that.

    THIS IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM.

    agree?

    ReplyDelete
  81. yes; the ambassodors are the other lot.

    they are not doing a good job; i think.

    but what they should do is not to proclaim military victories. they should do propoganda for SL and counter LTTE propoganda among other things.

  82. If our forces are closer to Adampan town I am pretty sure LTTE Big guns and arties must be already moving towards vidutheltivu. Once the forces reach the town centre there could be a possiblity those guns could be used againts the forces positions since they would know the cordinates and locations.

    There could also be mine field fear too in the town center. virtually all the buildings could be heavily mined so that when our forces enter them they would blow.

    So this could be the right time to give some aerial gifts to vidutheltheevu. pre emptive strikes!!!

    Of course this is what I feel but the ground situation could be different to what I think

    Any comments guys??

  88. Defenece Net & friends,

    I am wondering why, having fought for thirty years what make SL military show slow progress in wining the war?

    Why SL waited till LTTE bring MBRL and other (efficient) war materials to battle field ?

    Is LTTE more innovative than SL military?

    Why we are not using sattelite technology and sophisticated radar (3D,300km radius,made inCanada) to visualize enemy targets?

    Cant we consider this war is a huge embarrasement to all Srilankans if it last long?

    SL military has all upper hand in fire power and man power but how could then LTTE still survive for thirty years?

    can any of you explain real cause?

    Dont just say it is a guarilla war..I am fed up of that answer.

  89. galleemalle,
    The problem here is that we dont want to kill innocent tamil civilians and the mines..otherwise the war will be over by now..since we will consider it a conventional war and convert the north to a big heap of ash..but we cant because of the people..

  90. Galle Malli,

    I think part of the answer came in a recent post by some one.

    where he said this ltte army is only a part of a larger network and is financed and controlled by an int'l body with larger motives.

    This could be true if we analyze the current happenings. On most of the occasions it is the LTTE who were first to introduce latest weapons. Definitely Prabha couldn't be such a genius, and if you take their websites its being handled very professionally.

    So behind this there could be an hidden arm/agenda. maybe some one could research on this. Who knows our soil could be the testing ground like how the americans used to test their weapon systems in iraq/afghan... etc...

    So this is why we should defeat this, then anybody who is experimenting will have no lab to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  91. gaallemalli,

    In my view there are many reasons...

    1. Former governments of SL always meddled with the war at crucial stages for their own political agenda. We never let the military run the war, rather we let the government run it.

    2. the LTTE is far far ahead of GOSL in terms of innovation. We have fought a reactive war for 30. Never a proactive one.

    3. It is a guarrilla war. Up until recently almost all operations were based on mass troop movement. Now we see elite infantry conducting operations in small groups

    4. The whole worlds seems to think they know what is best for us and they keep meddling in our affairs.
    We see that even today. US telling us about human rights and political solutions for wars! what a joke

    5. Corruption! there are many people who don't want the war to end.

    All in all, I think we should be absolutely ashamed of how we fought the war for 30 years.
    We did almost nothing right cuz we never had an overall strategy. ( a war is not just fought on the battle front)
    we should all thank the troops who carried the fight for 30 years! if not for their skill we would be much worse off now.

    ReplyDelete
  92. @GaalleMalli

    i'm not an expert so this answer may not be a 'RIGHT' answer

    i think SLA don't want to take too much risk & HIGH numbers of killed

    otherwise they are waiting till march or later to give a charge(raining stops in march)

    LTTE has survived all these years because there was no good plan & political will to defeat them
    (thats what i have heard)

    i have to say LTTE which is outmanned by the SLA is doing a great job !

    LTTE don't have many tanks/planes etc. as SLA but still is holding big area of land
    (hello !!! look at MAP that shows the LTTE controlled area)

    Defencenet will also agree with me
    that there are many big battles ahead

    ITN & others make it look easy but its not

    SLA is taking it SLOW but for how long is the question ??

  93. Guys,

    With regard to the quality of state media - especially defence.lk and army.lk - they do a reasonable job with what is at their disposal.

    Yes, the quality of English is very poor and so is the nature of writing.

    However, no one can point a finger at them with the accusation of blatant fabricating or spinning. I am sure they could have hired a propaganda guru for enhancing the gloss of the sites in question; however, it is doomed to fail in the long run. The impressive sites that Tigers run have been economical with the truth, as we all know very well. I think the presence of pests like theboss and Shyam proves the fact that even die-hard Tiger supporters rely on alternative sites for sensible information; when the news is overwelming, they disturb the bloggers, simply for having a mind set different from them. That means, the excesses committed by the Tamilnet and the related sites have done a irreversible damage to them. I don't think Tiger supporters go their for breath an ounze of air of salvation.

    I think we should allocate a day to quote the foreign media guys / organizations - their prediction in the recent past along with time stamp - to humiliate them to the core and hide their heads in shame.

    The army should leak the information to these guys on the brink of a victory this way - our forward march has been hampered by booby traps and stiff resistance from the Tigers - and they march for the victory by letting them eat their words while forcing them to find consolation by stroking their balls.

    However, they must not overdo it. Then we, the poor mortals get upset too; we visit these bloody sites too in our quest for information.

  94. Gallemalli..

    its interesting point. Like to express my personal view on that matter.

    1. Its hardly accept 'Slow progress'. This is not a leaner war. We have libarated east 2 times before. Captured Kilinochchi alos. But we couldn't keep them because our own weaknesses(pilitical and military).

    2. This war highly mixed with plitical matters. Most of those 30 years army had to work on full fill the political targets rather than military interesting.

    3. Difference between terrorist group & conventional army. LTTE carders dony care about their own life or others. Their only goal is archiving target anyhow. But SLA cannot work in that way. Their are lot of points they have to pay attention even in battle front. They have to follow the country's low & international low. So they have lot of restriction slow down their task

    Sorry about not answering your question. We must have missed it.
    And no we are not under pressure from anyone.

    Yes we have acquired six new F-7s and they will primarily be used for interceptor role. Next time tigers are airborne hopefully we can shoot them down before they do damage. Air to air capability was the one thing SLAF lacked most.

  110. Guys, I agree that defence.lk are doing a great job but it can be done in a much better way!

    My English is not that good, so I contacted a guy who's written articles to both national & international media and convinced him that he should volunteer for editing articles in defence.lk. Then I got in touch with defence.lk and told them about this offer, but haven't heard from them since!

    I also pointed out to them that there is a programming mistake on their news pages. It prints this line at the top of each article:

    ---------------
    Last modified on: 2/8/2008 8:01:56 AM<% on Error Resume Next Response.Expires = 0 %>
    ---------------

    Those guys out there with any programming experience will know that this is a simple mistake and can be corrected quickly. So I offered to go into defence.lk offices (I don't need to take anything with me, no discs, books, USB sticks etc. just myself is enough!) and fix it but haven't heard from them since!

    Althought it is not my main profession, I have been doing web-development for 10+ years now and I am ready to offer my services free of charge to Defence.lk. If you know somebody in MOD and if you can convince them to use my knowledge, then please let me know! If you want to see my portfolio before doing this, then please drop me an e-mail.

    I know that the above error is a simple one but defence.lk is where everybody looks for defence related news, so it should be a very professional site!

    "
    Also i know the interceptors will be much faster than the LTTE crop dusters but what are the chances of these crop dusters actually ramming or damaging the F-7.""

    The chances of them ramming an F-7 in mid air will be extremely low.

    "lets say one guy in the 2 man LTTE team in the crop duster has some kind of RPG?..what chance has it to do damage to the F-7?"

    again, extremely low.

    the_owl,
    "What is really going on in Mannar? According to TN most of the SLA offensives have thwarted by the LTTE. However, the SLA claims that is in the verge of capturing Adampan. It seems both sides are claiming progress (at least in terms of numbers killed)"

    SLA is close to Adampan. The area is heavily mined and booby traps are almost everywhere. Add to this the occasional arty barrage. SLA wants to go in with minimum casualties thats whats taking them long (and LTTE HAS resisted heavily no doubt there).
    As for the numbers both sides exaggerate.

    lkdood,
    "

    are they just air-to-air ?"

    They can attack ground. But the new ones will be optimized for A2A role.
    SLAF has had 4 F-7s in its inventory since the 1990s. These were used to bomb LTTE targets along with the Kfirs when all our MiGs were grounded.

  118. Srilankan, riyaz, SnakeVI, lkdood, qrious, ryan, defence net,

    Thank you for your comments on the post

    The reasons I think and some of you think for LTTE to survive for the last 30years listed below:

    1-Lack of political and military leadership for SL
    2-Lack of long term and short term political and military strategies for SL
    3-Poor analyse about the enemy and the war by SL
    4-Being re-active rather than pro-active by SL
    5-Purchase of cheaper arms instead of suitable and efficient arms by SL
    6-Purchase of expensive but disastrous arms and use them effectively at right time by LTTE
    7-LTTE was more innovative in their attacks and weapons
    8-Commis greedy military generals
    9- Exchange of military info for money by SL military, priests, civilians and politicians (Corruption!)
    10-Divided Sinhalese
    11-Motives of the war were to fight for a homeland for Tamils and brain-washing its cadres for a do or die war
    12-SL went for a paid job (most) and worried about family and friends and did most of the years defensive than offensive operations
    13-LTTE was a terrorist group under a Dictator Leadership
    14-SL military was conventional army under democratic leadership
    15-LTE had young guerrillas and therefore more energetic.
    16-LTTE had world wide network. developed countries supported to freedom fight with think tanks and provided latest war materials and financed LTTE
    17-LTTE infiltrated SL military than SL military did to LTTE
    18-Satellite view of SL military positions through India, EU, USA falls to LTTE
    19- Political influence on Sri Lanka by IC including India at crucial points of certain successful operations in the past
    20-Power minded Sri Lankan political struggle in SL politics
    21-Well established lobbying of world most influenced people and countries
    22-Well established IT media propaganda by LTTE
    23-Well established or infiltrated NGOs and Human Rights Groups around the world by LTTE
    24-Sound cash-inflow to LTTE through Diaspora and other means
    25-Interests of West on worlds most strategically located Island

    You may add more if you think it has caused LTTE to survive 30yrs !

    Srilankan,
    the F-7 flies much faster and much higher.

    Unless the F-7 flies into the crop duster there is no way they can ram it (in mid-air)
    plus, Hitting it with an RPG is very very improbable. probably have better odds of winnin the lottery

  158. Guys,

    Have you noticed that when ever SLA kicks ass these LTTE morons start whining about this that and the other.

    Well, ever since we learnt that SLAF got some F-7’s, these guys have been moaning like there’s no tomorrow! Well done SLAF, now we know the tigers are worried about getting their tincans airborne!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Can we also use F-7 fighters to give close air ground support for our advancing fighters? That can reduce the advancing army's casualty figures.

  160. Guys,

    It is refreshing to hear SLA has acquired interceptor planes last.

    I am also having a question of Sankevi put in previously for a long time. Is SLA not using there Mi-24 helicopters in current operations at all? I understand considering risk factors using supersonic planes are more reliable. Is there any other factors SLA are worried of using Mi-24s? (I am sure it is not the tiger Air Defense system :))

    I would think those can be used for at least surprise attacks. Isn't it?

    Somebody who knows the subject please explain.

  161. Well said gentlemen..however as far as the army is concerned we have to assume that all tigers are getting ready to commit suicide for their fictional ThaamilEElam..so we are up against a force who want to die exterminating us in the process.If in reality some of them surrender then that is OK.so what the army is faceing are a few divisions of suicide bombers

  162. Puli,
    :) thanks.
    Yes the capture of south adampan outskirt is probably false. But it might be true aswell. I will be able to confirm its validity tomorrow.
    Heavy SLA casualties is what I have heard too from ground sources in Eelam.




    "Fall of Adampan imminent

    Soldiers of the army's 58th division backed by artillery fire and armored units overran a section of LTTE's forward defense line south of Adampan, Mannar yesterday. 9 LTTE cadres were killed and 12 more are reported to be wounded when army overran 7 bunkers on the FDL. Advancing SLA forces are now about 800m from the Adampan town center. 58th division (Task Force 01), is advancing towards the major LTTE stronghold of Viduthalaithiv through Adampan sector."

  168. to the boss,
    hey man, as u just confessed, you were in Sri Lanka for just two years huh. What would you know about the plight of the lankans (both sinhalese and tamils) as a result of war? U probably dont give a fuck about either group. Its just that you want to sound gangsta in whatever country u are, isnt it?. Hey, screw the the african-americans rapping about violence and street crime - you have your own pet terror group! Responsible for over 60,000 deaths. The group that invented suicide bombings. Well, you can't get more gangsta than that, can you!! Keeping it real for your homies eh, by posting deadly words on an online forum? Isnt that so yarrr?!

    Listen dude, i'm guessing your parents fled the country with you in the turbulent 80's. Which would put ur age in the 20's. Bro, in whatever country u are - its never too late to start afresh. U seem to be spending way to much time on this blog - try to get a job, start a new, better life over there. Hard as it may be, try to get over the traumatic past - few sri lankans would disagree that we owe an apology to some of the actions in the past. But also know that anger blinds, and makes your actions seem illogical to others. And most importantly, forget about whats happening in Sri Lanka mate - its no longer your country. Neither would eelam (if its ever realized) welcome u westerner. Focus more on ur life, and on whatevers happening in ur home country over there.
    Adieu........

  171. LankaTruth says that two priests have been arrested for transporting suicide kits. It refers to a fundamentalist religeous sect. I wonder what this fundamentalist religeous sect is ?


    Two more priests arrested with 18 suicide kits
    (LankaTruth: 8th February 2008 21:50 S.L.T )

    The anti-terrorist unit of the police has been able to arrest two more priests from Batticaloa and Nuwara-eliya with 18 suicide kits.

    The anti- terrorist unit was able to arrest the two priests from information obtained from a priest arrested at Saliyapura recently. When a priest was questioned he had confessed that he had transported 7 suicide kits to Nuwara-eliya. They also have transported several such suicide kits to Kandy and Bandarawela areas.

    About four priests of fundamental religious sects have been arrested by the police in relation to terrorist activities and in questioning them it has been revealed that about 30 suicide bombers have been transported to the southern areas from Wanni.

    Yes I agree with you. It is tragic when so called religeous people do these types of things

    ReplyDelete
  175. Guys,

    Perhaps you might have agreed with the causes of long life of LTTE so far I mentioned above but some of you dont seemed to agree that LTTE can be defeated. It was proved once in the east and LTTE will be wiped out completely from the country with the help of other peace loving Tamils. They (we all) are tired of this war. So it will be wiped out very soon! If you are good Srilanka must also be happy about that.
    Cause of the war cant be removed by dividing the country. Even if the Elam is given, majority of Srilankan tamils will be living with sinhalese in the south. Its a fact.If the roots(tamil grievences) of the problem not removed(address the Tamil grievences) its trunk(hatrism) will keep growing.
    Untill sinhalese and tamils begin to respect and trust eachother there will be more and more communal violences and we will never achieve peace.

    Thus, Military victory will not be sufficient to the conflict until all ethnic groups are properly integrated into a multi ethnic society. Then only we can grow as a nation and a country.

    SOLUTION TO THE CONFLICT IS NOT WAR AND CERTAINLY NOT TERRORISM!

    EAQUALITY, DISCRIMINATION ARE KEY WORDS TO THE CONFLICT !!!!!!!

  176. Strategypage article.

    Grinding Them Down
    February 8, 2008: In the last two weeks, fighting has intensified. On the front line in northern Sri Lanka, the LTTE is on the defensive, having lost nearly a thousand fighters so far this year. Total combat and terrorism deaths in the last year are nearly 5,000.



    The naval blockade has deprived the LTTE of artillery and mortar ammo, while the army has plenty. Then there are the increasingly effective air force bombing missions. The LTTE has lost dozens of bunkers in the north, and had to retreat from its long held front lines. The LTTE is also suffering a manpower shortage, and more teenagers are being recruited to man the front lines. These kids are no match for the artillery and experienced soldiers, and often flee or quickly surrender.



    In response, the LTTE has turned more to terror attacks. While most of the LTTE terror attacks are in the north, the Tamil terrorists managed to set off a bomb in the capital, killing eleven people at a railroad station on February 3rd. This was also seen as an LTTE attempt to scare off foreign tourists and investments. This has sent local stock markets down seven percent last year, and four percent so far this year. The economy is growing despite the fighting, and the LTTE wants to stop that. Two more terror attacks on February 4th, Sri Lankan independence day, killed another 14 people. At this point, the terror attacks are counterproductive. The Sinhalese majority just gets angrier, rather than scared. The terror operations are not sufficient to change the course of the war.



    The army is closing in on towns in the north that have been held by the LTTE for years. In desperation, the Tamils continue to try and smuggle ammo in from India, and there are still several clashes at sea every week. But the navy has the edge, and sinks more boats than it loses. On the ground, it's been noted that many hard core LTTE leaders have died in the last year, and been replaced by less able, and often less aggressive, men. But the army still fears that the LTTE is harboring a reserve of several hundred highly trained, and well led, fighters. These could be used to do a lot of damage in a local attack. Thus the army has been cautious in the way it advances into enemy territory. The government prefers to win slowly, rather than rush ahead and risk some nasty reverses.

  179. theboss, Shyam and Puli,

    I know you guys are very concerned about the plight of the Tigers and so am I, but only in one aspect.

    My concern is particularly about the female Tigers; there are reports of finding condomes inside deserted bunkers in abundance. It is blindingly obvious the leadership now actively encourages bunker-sex.

    Cynics say this is a move to lure to young hot heads into these places, where no one from the Vanni wants to ventures into. I disagree. I have a better explanation:

    According to my research, these female cadres started showing the symptoms of Menopause while still in their teens; what happens at FDL's is, prolonged standing has caused Varicose veins and they are hungry for blood. So, the liquid has deserted the vital parts towards these big veins. So, Tiger heirachy has just let them make hay while the sun shines.

    That may be the reason why male Tigers in these bunkers get so angry when these girls have their periods - people with wide ears have overheard these young men shouting "It is a bloody waste of f****** time," in a rage fuelled by testesterone, when female tigers stay away on health grounds. Every minutes counts for these blokes.

    Hey, theboss & Co, this is serious stuff; your intervention is needed.

  180. F-7 is a completely useless aircraft in modern usage. however the govt. thinking behind acquiring them is to get many newer planes with multirole capabilities.

    SL is never going to engage another air force, so we don't need technologically advanced planes.

    however, we must think of the dangers posed by SAMs.

  189. Snakevi,
    “roughly how many mi-24 gunships do we have?
    to what scale are they used in operations?
    have we ha a lot of success with them? how many have we lost so far?
    and can't we use them to take out sea tiger boats on a regu;ar basis”
    We have about 9 of them. At least three of these are going to be upgraded to Mi-35M variant. And three more Mi-35Ms are due to be added to gunship fleet. We do use them against sea tigers but their medium caliber guns can be deadly to the hinds at close quarters.
    The_boss,
    “tiger is stronger than lion. But male lions have beard which can take on hits by tigers.”
    Did we get this wrong or did you just compare the actual animals? Ok dude that’s more childish that anything anyone has ever posted here before.
    Puli,
    “Moattu singalavanukku oru pundaiyum vilangaathu. Adi poattaal thaan vilangum!”

    The_boss,
    “Yes the capture of south adampan outskirt is probably false. But it might be true aswell.”
    Interesting analysis mate! Even a 5 year old would have told you that much. Anyway it once again shows the reason you keep visiting this blog. You come here because you don’t trust your propaganda machines (and you have NO independent source to verify their claims). Wheever we give you some news you don’t like, you try to reassure yourselves by posting illogical crap in the forum. How can you hail our news story about SLN’s lost Water Jet and whine about the fall of south Adampan? It just shows how premature you are. You believe the tigers to be some superhuman force that is immortal. And most of the time you don’t have facts to back your claims, only empty threats.
    “Soldiers of the army's 58th division backed by artillery fire and armored units overran a section of LTTE's forward defense line south of Adampan, Mannar yesterday. 9 LTTE cadres were killed and 12 more are reported to be wounded when army overran 7 bunkers on the FDL.

    Note the line “overran a section of LTTE’s forward defense line south of Adampan” . Dude apparently you have no clue of the geography of the area. Do you think it’s a paved road along which the army has the advance?
    Tropicalstorm,
    “tamilnut 'thwarts' SLA missions, but their terrain is shrinking like Velu's diabetic dick? I don;t think the monkeys understand the word correctly. maybe they think thwart is a fancy word for running off farting when the SLA advances..”
    And the most interesting this is the rate they ‘defeat’ DPU teams. As per their reports one might wonder whether the SLA is one large Deep Penetration Unit. Anyway it’s always thwarted yet their news stories continuously claim that fighting is going on in previously “thwarted” areas.
    “Isn't it about time that more pictures and videos on the SLA operations were uploaded on your blog?”
    We’ll try to upload another vid from Thoppigala on Sunday.

    ["fundamentalist religious sects" means Christian extremists. Looks like two Christian priests have been arrested for transporting suicide kits. They should be defrocked, lined up and shot in public. How many innocent lives have been lost because of these things? Disgusting.]

    Mate, quite true!

    What most ppl here don’t understand is how much these Christian fundamentalist sects (like the “Church of God” “Calvary Church” “Bible School” etc. etc.) are in the pocket of the LTTE agents abroad! I have personally seen how much the LTTE agents have cultivated these church hierarchy in the US/Canada (I once had a white girlfriend attend these church services and report back to me what goes on in those localities that I knew had clusters of SL Tamils...the revelation was indeed eye-popping!) and basically, while the “thamileelamists” excreta-maggots are interested in their racist separate state, these Christian fundamentalist mother-doers are interested in “what’s in it for us”…or in other words, how many more converts can we have if a separate state is to be formed in SL out of GOSL control!

    So, really, there is no mystery here. These “men/women of God” bastards and bitches are into all the nefarious activities, including smuggling bombs on behalf of the LTTE if the opportunity will presents itself!

    I say when we catch one of these terrorist-supporting buggers, it is best to clandestinely make the MF "leave" our soil (Mmmm, you know what I mean!) as these MF’s have loads and loads of money and they will somehow get off the hook with the best lawyers from the US/Canada (and they are also connected to certain US politicians who are they church members and as such, trying prosecute them with the intent of sending them to jail will be indeed a dicey affair that a poor developing nation like SL can ill afford!).
