Civilian casualties in suicide blast - Dharmapuram

Heavy civilian casualties have been reported when a LTTE female suicide bomber detonated herself near an IDP center Vishwamadu area. Several soldiers of the 58 division have also been injured. As of this moment, exact casualty details are not available. The blast may have been planned to discourage any more civilians from crossing over the the government controlled territory. For the past two days alone more than 8000 civilians have managed to flee LTTE control.

LTTE now seems to be heavily deploying their suicide cadres to attack the army. During the past two weeks more than 6 suicide attacks have targeted SLA FDL both at PTK as well as at Challai. Some of these attacks did inflict casualties on the army’s side. LTTE’s last ‘innovative attack’ to breach the army FDL south of PTK too turned into an unintentional suicide mission. Another 30 man ‘LTTE commando"’ unit was sent in an armor plated lorry to execute an attack similar to the one launched by the tigers on the 1st of February. The lorry along with around 30 tigers on board was pulverized by 53 division units before ‘LTTE commandos’ could fire a single shot.

  5. P.S.- http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=28326

    is a recycled article. This was posted days after the actual battle had taken place. Chances are high that 'Commandos' being shown in pictures are now dead - half of the LTTE offensive force was wiped out in that attack.

    We too have suffered casualties - several hundred soldiers killed or injured at Challai and PTK south. LTTE used tanks, APC (armored lorries) and several suicide bombers yet they could not breach the lines. Back in 2007 and 2008, several LTTE supporters stated "this is Jayasikuru all over again". Well now you have your answer - this time around you simply cannot break the line.

  6. I suppose, VP is inside the seiged area. Or else the remaining caders are being forced to belive VP is alive. I sense some remaining motivation among LTTE caders. This can be a result of VP alive,and motivate or forced to give a last ditch fight.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, LTTE did not break any line and will not break this time. Anyway too many lines to break.
    What LTTE supporters should understand is LTTE has lost a vital fact in any warfare. They have no supply route (Air, Sea or Ground). No supply route means eventual collapse and devastation. This is what exactly happened to SLA many years back.

    All SLA supporters should understand another vital fact. The LTTE is surrounded, and surrounded without any hopes. No escape route, no supply and no hopes drives any one crazy. If leaders know how to motivate the caders (I belive LTTE is very good in brain washing) which are now without any hope, this no hope situation can be used as a good platform for massive and very effective counter attacks. This is also a truth which stands over the test of time.

    SLA will face many fierce attacks as and when the teritory get shrinked. I also belive the SLA strategists know these two facts. They opted to take their chances by cutting the supply routes, escape routes and to get beaten a little from the encircled wild animal mentality. SLA forces are now equipped with man and material numbers to get a little bit of beating if it is part of the strategy.

    The only hope LTTE now has is the Human shiel and Pro LTTE media.

    No News Update about this on BBC who was showing LTTE footage last weeks.

    At least a mention about this :::

  13. DN,

    How many SLA died duringb the Tigers failed counter-offensive? hope its not too sensitive to discuss??

    And how on earth are the Tigers still able to operate Tanks with such impunity?..why cant the SLAF take them out?..do they even have any ammo for these tanks? or are they just serving as an armored assault force?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sam,
    59 is in tact. Deployment of 53 has lead to people believing 59 has met with destruction. 53 is deployed as a preventative measure, not as a replacement to 59.

    Renegade,
    When we said they used tanks, we didnt mean anything like an armored assault force. What they use mostly are lorries fitted with armor. Tanks are not frequently used and one T55 was probably taken out last week.

    It not easy to pinpoint the location of one using aerial recon as tigers are good at hiding these. There are plenty of places with good cover even in the small territory they have now.

  19. Thanks DefenceNet for this update. I would like to add to your comment on the recycled article published by TamilNet (http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=28326). The exif data of the photos in the article shows that the photos were originally taken over two different dates in October 2008.

    I have noticed this not only in this article but in others as well. Most of the photos TamilNet use do not coincide with the date of the incident they are reporting on.

  21. "We too have suffered casualties - several hundred soldiers killed or injured at Challai and PTK south. "

    are you sure about the several hundred casualty figure?
    from the info i could gather from my source 25 SLA KIA due to the initial infiltration and a further 42 from Ceaseless waves type of attack later with improvised armor.

  22. duzz,
    casualty figure was for all battles since feb 1 up to now in all fronts, not just that battle. Note that this includes both WIA and KIA.

    @Vigilante,
    There is still no confirmation on Soosei story. He hasn't been heard on radio since the attack.

  25. was curious to see how BALU Sirasa would report the suicide blast at Visuamadu... missed first 5 minutes of the report...

    But, just as I expected, they never mentioned the word "ltte".
    These bastards in sirasa just said "suicide attack" and NOT "ltte suicide attack"... whats their bloody problem?

    When this war is over, we need to bring down sirasa, just as we brought down their master, ltte!

    Like I said, I missed the 1st part of the news item. May be they mentioned "ltte". If so, ignore this comment.

  28. all these incidents were true, but small correction, when the suicide bombs blasted near the sla army personnel, sla army started to fire at the people settled in small huts as a refugees and blamed saying people also killed by this suicide,, you fucking fools, if the tigers were only 2000 or less, there is more than 200000 people there, if tigers fire at their own people do you think people would let them stay with them[again tamils=tigers],.. morons , enough with your gov propaganda.. no one would believes you pathetic propaganda's..you can blame it anything but you cannot stop getting killed by the tigers.. you can bring the 50000 soldiers, but they shoudl know why they are fighting for, when we hit it will spread as forest fire.. your pathetic army will flee from the vanni soon.you cannot win the war

  34. Bandara,

    Everytime you fantasise about the LTTE achieving victory through a counter-attack, remember these words:

    "Listen and understand. The Sri Lanka Army is out there.

    It can't be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with.

    It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear, and it absolutely will not stop.

    Ever.

    Until you are dead".


    Do feel free to pass it on to any Eelamtards in need of morale booster.

  41. we have a problem.

    ananda sangari has bipolar disorder. some days he is very good, some days very bad.

    he had a bad day. he has made 3 requests to the govt. which are HIGHLY dangerous.

    from lankaguardian...

    #1
    "Mr Anandasangaree has made a timely request to President Mahinda Rajapakse to give ear to them and convert them into action without any delay. He wants a list of people who have escaped from the clutches of the LTTE to be published regularly and where exactly they are now."

    this DIRECTLY contradicts with our counter terror and counter-infiltration methods. this should NOT be done. we know as a fcuking fact that tigers also cross over and sometimes with weapons. we cannot reveal that we handled them. if we do, civilians get scared and stop coming.

    ASS has again very CUNNINGLY plan to save tigers. if he is genuinely concerned about civilians, there is no fcuking need to make such a request. ALL CVILIANS who cross over to our areas are 100% safe. but not ALL tigers posing as civilians!!

    govt should reject this.

    #2
    "Mr Anandasangaree's second request is to allow the elders, the sick and the children to join their relatives who are prepared to accommodate them at their homes in Vavuniya, even elsewhere."

    this is completely against what i said in DW previously. this is even more dangerous. allowing "the sick"!! to go to vavuniya, colombo, etc. is a VERY VERY dangerous thing to do. this is free passage for suicide bombers to do what they so far failed to do. any idiot can pretend to be sick and any child can be made to a suicide bomber.

    e.g. only last weeek a 13 year old suicide bomber was detected by SLA at a FDL!!!

    how can this idiot say children can go to their "reatives" without "parents"????

    i hope the govt is not so FOOLISH.

    #3
    "His third request is quite just. The health of a democratic state lies in its transparency and Mr Anandasangaree wants the local NGOs, political parties and social organizations such as the Rural Development Societies and the community centers to be involved in refugee work."


    fantastic!! the govt blocked them for VERY good reasons. we will be back to square one if we again fall in the same NGO trap. i'm sure NGOs had bribed ASS.

    govt should reject this request with contempt.

    cc: MoD

  42. Guys,

    I felt a sense of very uneasiness, when I saw Brigdier Shavindra Silva was mingling with people.

    It looks like his guardian angels didn't desert him today.

    The army top brass must not mingle with civilians until things are sorted out fully.

    I saw in New Delhi that there are impoverished metal detectors installed in the form of a doorway, at the main entrance to the hotels. If something like that is installed we may get round this menace to some extent.

    Using very sophisticated ones will not solve the problem; if terras blow that up, it is all over.

    The top brass must bang their heads together to come up with a strategy for this. We must save our excellent officers at any cost.

    Please force the people managing the site to remove this. The scene of the soldier picking up the small child and showing falling flesh is not humane, and its not the best way of showing LTTE cruelty.

    Please be more concerned about the photos and movies posted on a responsible web site.

  49. patriots,

    did you notice how the demand for a ceasefire, etc. comes from crappy countries around the wrold NOW??

    maxico, east timor, etc.

    i'm sure tiger lobbies are targeting them now after their attempt to fool major players didn't work.

    they also seem to be targeting not-so-popular media (other than CNN, al jazira, bbc) AS WELL.

    our propoganda attack should also include these which we thought insignificant.

    these countries are also important and pls target your propoganda work, letters to them as well.

    Austria
    Burkina Faso
    Costa Rica
    Croatia
    Japan
    Libya
    Mexico
    Turkey
    Uganda
    Vietnam

    of course US, UK, china, russia, frace are always important.

    if you can write in languages other than english that are used in the above countries, PLEASE write SOMETHING and send to government authorities of these countries. a simple FACTUAL letter goes a LONG LONG way.

    don't give LTTE a walk-over!!!

  54. I have seen in many posts by LTTE hardcore supporters that the Suicide Attack was a creation by SLA or GOSL.

    A humble request to all Hardcore believers of LTTE.

    Could you enlighten me what are the advantages the SLA or GOSL get under the following categories by doing such a thing.

    Military Advantages tactically or strategically.

    Political Advantages tactically or strategically.

    Before answering please mind that SLA and GOSL trying their best to achieve Military victories as well as publically does try to safe guard innocent civilians. These are undoubtedly the paths and goals SLA and GOSL has taken. All Military operations are mentioned as Humanitarian Operations.

  56. LTTE is losing the depths and strengths in their Military strategy. All recent attacks and maneuvers has tell tale signs of lack of Wisdom.
    In other hands, it is un-justifying to expect Wisdom and Strategic thinking from LTTE leaders whom has been running for some good time as well as bogged down without supplies and ground.
    The recent attack on 59 looks brilliant from the face value. But the reality is it is also a another show off attempt. True they achieved some target by damaging few vehicles and creating a de route from 59th intentions, but it has no long standing effect. Long Ranger has detailed the mission and the false thinking behind that.
    All other attacks are suicidal type or like Uncorking a Soda Bottle. The point is there will not be any effect on the SLA machine from these Soda Bottle attacks. There will be minor disruptions, loss of life and material. But the effect on the equation or scale is negligible.
    But behold, LTTE posses a Non Secret, but a lethal weapon which can be a decider at least for a small time period. This is a defensive weapon, but can be use as an offensive if mixed with some elements. This weapon was extensively used in many occasions and SLA has no answer for it so far.
    This is called “Human Shield”. The power it brings to LTTE armory is in colossal magnitudes. LTTE leaders very well know hoe to handle this weapon and they have done so far.
    Once this shield is off or if breached and recued, LTTE will face a hard time without supplies, territory and morale.
    This weapon can be rescued, but good point for LTTE is neither SLA or any Army can reuse it. At the current time only LTTE leaders know how to handle this weapon.

    I too agree with you but when there’s genuine concern about Soosai here then we must assume that he has gone for ever or the tigers are giving a lot of miss information about this leader killed or that leader killed so that the gosl or the people will not expect them to live but in fact they have escaped elsewhere to keep this eelam affair going.

    It is very interesting that they managed to get a 14 year old child to come close to those people where Major Gen. S.de Silva is suppose to be there. So this goes to show that their command structure is still a bit intact to get this information and this goes to indicate their command as moved and we have collaborates among us giving all the help.
    I am really angry with these terrorists and our own band of terrorists for bringing our land to so such levels where the criminal minded people, rouges has become heroes thanks to this war thrust upon us. We the true heroes who has given our life savings are trampled and ignored by the state and suffering immensely. This why I care two hoots for history as it makes criminals and thugs like Puran Appu heroes.
    A true example is this Major General Pannipitya is being locked up for wrong doing so was another two bit General and his sons were locked up for murder and escaped justice.
    Winning war does not make people heroes until they have given their lives for a good cause and live by good example for the rest of their lives serving man kind. A war will not only make heroes but rouges as well. We will never forget the heroic deeds of our braves but not forgive those exploited it for their personal gain.

  63. A great news heard today. Our beloved Paul Harris will be heading back to Sri Lanka.

    Paul Harris is one of the rare personalities with a great wisdom who exactly understood what LTTE is and its motives that a PWP like Ranil could not understand.

    During his posting in Sri Lanka, Paul did a millions of dollars worth yeoman service to Sri Lanka without any cost to her.

    This is a person with a great love and affection for Sri Lanka, as no other Brit did this kind of service.

    These are the exact kind of persons who should get Knighted by the Queen - the Brits who bring respect to Britain.

    Sri Lanka should give him an honorary Citizenship as well as one of the Honorary Titles and honor him for his service at least.

    Here again, listen to one of his speeches,

    BBC suspends programming on SLBC

    LONDON (AFP) – The BBC has suspended its FM programming to Sri Lanka's national broadcaster because of what it claimed was "deliberate interference", it said Monday.

    In a statement, the BBC said its programmes and news reports in English, Sinhala and Tamil had been blocked by the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC), and had not been broadcast to listeners in the island nation.

    The broadcaster said it had expressed its concerns over the interference directly to SLBC chairman Hudson Samarsinghe in letters and meetings through December and January.

    "We are dismayed that the BBC?s programmes in the English, Sinhala and Tamil languages have been interrupted on the SLBC network," said Nigel Chapman, director of the BBC World Service, the BBC's international radio arm.

    "We have no choice but to suspend broadcasts until such time as SLBC can guarantee our programming is transmitted without interference."

    The BBC's programming will still be available to Sri Lankan listeners, however, via short-wave radio, over the Internet and on Sri Lanka's commercial broadcaster MBC.

    It the hard work of people like us who met this gentleman who were briefed about the true situation but the others too would write or say if not for the peer pressure they are subjected to, as anyone who truly walk the streets of any town in SL will see the true harmony among various ethnic groups and needless to say anything more to convince them.

  68. Totally agree about giving citizenship (and protection) to Paul Harris.

    During those dark days of denial and self-delusion, he spoke for us all, about the need to annihilate the military capability of the LTTE, without pause or mercy.

  69. Time for Sri Lanka to unleash their own 'Munich'?

    The USA does it. The UK does it. France does it. Russia definitely does it. Israel does it on a tediously regular basis.

    "It" may not be strictly legally correct. What is 'it'? Hunting and killing the state's enemies who operate with impunity in foreign territory.

    For Sri Lanka, Selvarasa Pathmanathan known as 'KP' is a priority target. As the LTTE's chief arms procurer, he has enabled VP and the LTTE to indulge in a 30-year orgy of unremitting murder, from innocent villagers of all ethnicities to democratically elected politicians including two Heads of State.

    KP has now been named as the LTTE's Head of (newly established) Department of International Relations. If VP is killed, or prevented pushing for Eelam, KP will be hugely important for the LTTE's survival.

    He has an unrivalled network of arms procurers including a still-functioning shipping network. He's alleged to be in Thailand or similar state, living under some sort of quasi-official protection.

    His disappearance (preferably through a deniable 'Munich' type operation) will leave the LTTE in doubt that their senior operative will never live in peace. Senior politicians (and their families) in Sri Lanka already live under permanent death threats from the LTTE. What more fearful threats can the LTTE bring to bear as the result of a 'Munich' operation?

    When the inevitable Human-rights retards start bemoaning this policy of targeted assassination, the GOSL should politely direct them to begin their inquiries and protests starting with the US.

  72. It seems Pillan is blaming the gosl for not funding the development of NE province. This one time terrorist must understand that he must wait his turn as the other people and areas that suffered due to war thrust by us over last 30 years. He must wait till the rest of the terrorist held areas are cleared and the brave soldiers and others who have sacrificed due to their terrorist acts are settled first then what is left over is given consideration to them. Terrorists and ex terrorists can’t be rewarded over the others. Once the gosl get’s it priorities right then every one will respect us. Also they must follow Karuna and join the main line politics and political parties. There’s no room for religious or ethnic politics in the island as it is very divisive.

  85. The Maniacal Coward

    I happened to be in London at the weekend and had the opportunity to attend a Tamil wedding in a hotel along with a few Sinhalese friends. The bride was a daughter of a Jaffna Tamil and the groom was of their Colombo equivalent.

    We all enjoyed it thoroughly and there were about 10 Sinhalese among 250 guests.

    None in the crowd did point a finger at us and accused us of being a part of a clan who commit a genocide in their ancestral lands. On the contrary, the came to us, chatted with us as if we knew each other for ages, exchanged about where we hail from etc in genuinely warm atmosphere. There were some who work with the Sinhalese in the UK: Tamils under Sinhalese bosses or vice versa.

    There were a few who were victims of '83 riots and at the mercy of some of our stupid hot heads who shared some of dreadful moments on a hilarious note. I didn't notice a trace of malice among them; they have indeed forgiven us - and collectively. If Mano Ganeshan was there, things would have been different!

    When the spirits changing glasses, I started a chat with a gentleman who was a close relative of a former big fish of original LTTE when Prabha was not the leader at the time.

    He was in no mood to give credit to anything the so-called Sun god claims to have achieved. He summed up who he is in two words: bloody coward.

    He recalled an incident that took place in late seventies or early eighties when a group of police personnel was killed in Murunkkan. Prabha has taken part in the crime, but afterwards started shivering and shaking uncontrollably in the thickets, according to the former Tamil militant. According to him, Prabha killed so many Tamils but not in a daring way as he later claimed. He even disputed the killing of Alfred Doraiappa by Prabhakaran. He is of the view that it was carried out by the son of a prominent Tamil politician at that time who now lives in exile as a decent individual.

    This is not the first time the fragile nature of Prabha was laid bare. Karuna Amman said that he witnessed the shaking phenomenon of the great liberator when fear makes in roads to his rotting psyche. It was during the jayasikuri operation that he planned to escape to South Africa while shivering like a fish on the shore.

    My man at the wedding said to me clearly that Prabha has never took part in a battle, while keeping himself safe in a bunker.

    He created the mythical existence by deliberately confine himself to dark corners. By creating invisibility this way, he paved the way for divine manifestation.

    We may be able to see how divine he is in the next couple of days. His worshippers will have to hide their heads in shame for worshipping a demon of the worst order due to a spiritual short-circuitting.

  86. Bandara, you are now officially designated Grade A Eelamtard. (Eelamist+Retard = Eelamtard).

    Selvarasa Pathmanathan is called KP is called that because his nickname is 'Kutty'.

    The original story of his new position was broken by Tamilnet.

    Quote: "The leadership of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) has recently named Selvarasa Pathmanathan, a high profile representative of the movement, as the Head of a newly established Department of International Relations, sources close to the LTTE said on Saturday."
    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=28224

    You've proved the old adage about "better to remain silent and be thought an idiot than open your mouth and remove all doubt."

    Threatening the Sri Lankan public with more suicide bombings won't achieve Eelam. We've endured more than 30 years of that and still have not given in.

    I suggest you move the Eelam struggle to Spain. The Spanish public easily capitulate to terrorist bombers - look what happened after the Madrid train bombs.

    Now, run off back to your room and continue with your interrupted education.

  88. Butterflies in my
    stomach


    Patriots,

    I am amazed by the response I got within few days of opening up our blog. Let me highlight my intentions on the Blog and explain few things that we should do together.

    * What are the opportunities available for us to take the country to economic prosperity (What we are good at).
    * What is missing in the equation
    * Help each other in filling the missing parts of the equation.

    But what I don't expect is,

    * Government machinery will come and Help, unless we could show some significant changes.

    Why I believe we can do it,

    * Because there is a large expatriate community who are knowledgeable, economically better but without being able to help
    * There are good entrepreneurs living in Sri Lanka with something missing in equation

    Why I think Government cannot help at this stage,

    * Government has bigger problems to solve (at least they think)
    * Government cannot address verticals easily. But we can be only successful by working on verticals (like many European countries)
    * System has not produced enough Think Tanks -(Politics :-))

    What are the pitfalls when we get together and drive this,

    * Remember what is missing in most cases for entrepreneur expansion (5- 25 people companies doing specialized projects - like luxury boats, or special crop etc) is the Capital and Marketing
    * So even if we connect the capital with entrepreneur who will grantee the investment (traditionally I have seen our people have less financial management skills and end up cheating the investors)
    * Benefits for taking the risk is = patriotism only (moreover less)

    What can we do?

    * We should take the risk people who live here and people who live outside and also should take the lead to fill the missing gaps
    * Encourage government to participate on this process to learn the dynamics and help secure the environment.
    * Find new opportunities
    * Help in Marketing ( we are too bad at this )

    So the list can go on!!

    I think the first thing we could do is

    * Identify some industry verticals
    * Collect expertise
    * Create a blog
    * Bring in possible missing parts of the equation
    * create an echo system so that vertical will survive - bringing in gov to keep transparency and investment security


    So patriots, can you please add your two cents to this as well.

    Jayawewa!!

  92. Bandara,

    Your incontinent, cretinous, slightly deranged ramblings make no sense. But what else can I expect from a Grade A Eelamtard?

    Can't you read?

    Tamilnet confirms that his name is Selvarasa Pathmanathan. DBS Jeyraj confirms that KP is Selvarasa Pathmanathan.

    Quote: "Selvarasa Pathmanathan was the real name of the man known as “KP” in Tiger circles. He was at one time the chief arms procurer of the Tigers. Now he had been made the global Tiger chief. “international relations department” was simply an euphemism for the LTTE’s global infrastructure."

    http://tinyurl.com/b4xp93

    Oh well, if you insist it's someone else, please feel free to indulge your fantasies. In this dream world you appear to inhabit, Eelam is 'just around the corner', isn't it?

    As for incest and other bizarre ramblings, I seriously urge you to seek urgent psychiatric help. Its obvious that you have some 'issues' to resolve.

  93. Qrious,

    LTTE has created a huge illusion and hatred towards Sinhalese within certain section of Tamils. However, most of the Tamils have interactions with the Sinhalese and know that Sinhalese have no qualms with the Tamils. Only some brain-washed idiots of Tamil origin believes all what LTTE put through their throats.

    LTTE wants to assure their survival through creating hatred in Tamils towards Sinhalese. But the truth speaks if you visit Sri Lanka and live in a city.

    In any city, Tamils and Sinhalese live peacefully together looking after each other.

    Total elimination of LTTE will bring long lasting peace to Sri Lanka. NOLTTE = Peace!

    There is no formula you can write for human behavior. After all, that is what you are dealing with, here.

    Howeevr, there are proven consistencies in human behavior you can use to make sound assumptions. There is always altruism and meeting of basic needs plus reward that would motivate positive behavior.

    If your idea is to attract expatriate talent back to SL, read the suggestions I've made on http://srilankan-news.blogspot.com

    SLG has correctly identified this as an important need and seem to be interested in prioritizing it. But they've not gone abt it in a systematic way.

    Dear Mr Mahindapala,

    Regarding the question you pose, all I can say is that - not being exactly a spring chicken - if you have not manged to answer that question after all these years, I am afraid I am not able to help you. I must have dreamt, for example, that all sinhalese public servants had to pass an examination in Tamil proficiency....

    I am afraid I do discriminate; not on ethnic or religious grounds but on other grounds. I have enormous respect for many Sinhalese journalists; Lasantha W of course springs to mind. I recall some who were murdered during an earlier period because they maintained integriity, impartiality and a committment to truth and refused to bow down before terrorists, whether, Tamil or Sinhalese. I am sure you have written and writing at length and campaigning hard to defend the freedom of the press and the right of journalists to cover contentious issues freely and fearlessly and to bring the culprits to justice in the case of recent murders of journalists. Your time, I feel, is better spent defending the rights of journalists in sri lanka and ensuring that their killers are put behind bars You are far too distinguished a journalist - I am sure, of the same calibre as Lasantha in terms of bravery and integrity, the absolute refusal to bow down before the powefrul - for a humble academic like me to be graced with an interview. I am honoured - at Least I should feel honoured I guess – but my humility prevents me from accepting such high honour and distracting you from the noble task of defending democracy, freedom and the rights and lives of journalists under threat in sri lanka..

    Journalists do not ask questions because they don't have their own answers. Nor are journalists "spring chicken", as you state, not to know the answers. They ask questions to find new answers or new perspectives to the old questions. Besides, the point of asking questions is to get answers other than the answers that journalists have. Readers are interested in all shades of opinions and answers. If, for instance, Prof. SJ goes on air and says as a Sinhalese he knows the discrimination faced by the Tamils since 1956 I would immediately assume that you are the kind of person that I must interview to know more about discrimination -- at least more than what I know.

    Also, I want to know your answers since you posed as the authority on the subject. So my answers are irrelevant. It is your answers that are important to my interview.

    I am also at a loss to know the point you are making about Sinhalese having to sit for an examination in Tamil proficiency. Are you saying, therefore, that there was no discrimination against the Tamils because all public servants from every community had to learn the language of the other communities? So where is the discrimination? Can you kindly state how this fits into your accusation that there was discrimination against the Tamils since 1956?

    May I also mention that the best of journalist interview personalities from heads of state to pimps and prostitutes. Journalists do not bestow any glory or humility to the interviewees. It's just another routine job in trying to get to the bottom of issues. Besides, seasoned journalists also know when someone is trying to dodge the issues with evasive answers.

    Please note, that I am always ready to learn new things. I would like to learn from an academic holding a professorial chair about the discrimination that the Tamils had experienced since 1956 because my Tamils friends who came out of post-56 era have denied facing discrimination that impeded their progress. As opposed to my experience I am sure you have enough evidence to back up your case. As an academic I trust you would not want to bring disrepute to your University by making wild accusation on any given subject. So please share your exclusive knowledge with me and I will thank you for that.

    Yours sincerely,

    HLDM

    Dear Mr Mahindapala,

    I know there are journalists and journalists. You would be at a loss to know whta was wrrong about sinhalese having to be proficient in tamil - the point is Tamils had to pass exams to show proficiency in sinhala but not the other way around. and, you can do your very 'scholarly journalist act' and ask what is the evidence there was discrimination after 1956; of course the fact thae sinhala was made the 'only official language' in 1956 does not rank as discriminatory in your book. When we give very different meanings to identical words discussion is meaningless. this closes this correspondence on my part.

    Subject:* RE: Interview

    Dear Prof,

    You reveal your total inability to comprehend the known facts (or is it ignorance?) when you wrote: "the point is Tamils had to pass exams to show proficiency in sinhala but not the other way around."

    Error 1: All public servants – Sinhalese, Burghers and Tamils – had to learn the languages of the public. Burghers had to learn both Sinhala and Tamil and Sinhalese had to learn Tamil and Tamils had to learn Sinhalese. The logic is simple: If you are a public servant you should know the language of the public. I will give you evidence. Please ring Dr. Donald Weerasiri (now a retired GP in Burwood) who was a government doctor in Sri Lanka before he came to Australia. He had to pass his exam in Tamil because he was practicing in a multi-cultural society where he had to serve Muslim and Tamil patients. Please ring Dr. G. G.Anderson (another retired ENT specialist) who had to learn both Tamil and Sinhalese to be in government service. So what is wrong in asking Tamil doctors to learn Sinhala when they had to serve mostly in Sinhala areas? They are public servants and by definition they should learn the language of the public as the migrated Tamils do in Germany, Norway, etc. The alternative was for the public to learn Tamil or English. Is that what you wanted? Why should only the Tamils object to learn Sinhala? The private sector did not impose this regulation. It was only in the public sector. Besides, to this day the main branches of the government and the private sector are run in English. So where is your argument for discrimination?

    All public servants were treated alike and it was their duty to learn the language of the public. Only those with a colonial mentality would argue that public must learn the language of the bureaucracy.

    Error 2: Is England administered in French? Is France governed in Russian? Is Australia ruled in Greek though it has a large Greek population? There are nearly 152 communities in Australia. Which of their languages (including the Aboriginals) have even the status of an official language let alone national language? Why do you have to wear blinkers when you look at Sri Lanka? Do you know that Tamil is not treated as a national language in India where Hindi is the official language? India, after all, the original homeland of Tamils. Unlike the Sinhalese who severed its links with India the Tamils are still linked to Tamil Nadu, culturally, linguistically, politically and even religiously. In Sri Lanka Tamil language has a place higher than in India. So where is the discrimination?

    Error 3: All public servants who did not want to learn and function in either language were given the rights to (1) retire with full pension and (2) free tuition on government time to learn the language. What more justice can there be in relation to the language issue confined only to the public servants?. My Tamil wife was a public servant and she made full use of the government time and government paid tutors to learn Sinhala and function effectively in the government service. Where is the discrimination? Are you getting the message?

    Error 4: Sinhala only was introduced to overthrow English not Tamil. Besides, the Tamil language was also given its due place when Bandaranaike introduced the Special Languages Provision in 1958. So where is the discrimination? The Tamils were prepared to function in English – a language not even known to the majority of the Tamils – but not in Sinhala and Tamil. When the British left in 1948 only 6% of the population knew English. Do you think the 96% should have been treated as second class citizens and ruled in an alien language? Are you getting the message?

    Error 5: This is not a question of giving different meanings to identical words, as you claim. This is an instance of you deliberately distorting the known facts and realities to propagate your political myths.

    It is up to you to reply and prove your case. Obviously, you will not reply because you do not have the arguments to prove your myths.

    Our peoples have suffered enough because so-called intellectuals like you appear in public to promote your image by propagating myths without fronting up for scrutiny. My humble requests to you is to stick to the facts and please don’t bring disrepute to your University which, I am sure, will take a dim view of your fictions.

    Take care – particularly of your faculties.

    Best

  126. A Press Release you're not going to see

    Britain rejects Sri Lanka's envoy: Foreign Minister

    COLOMBO (AFP) — Britain on Thursday rejected the appointment of Sri Lankan Defence Secretary, Gothabaya Rajapakse as a special envoy to the island, accusing Colombo of interfering in its internal affairs.

    Sri Lanka offered Rajapakse's services in helping the British government to quell a huge rise in teenage knife-related murders in London and in extricating Britain's armed forces from their current quagmire in Afghanistan. Rajapakse was particularly alarmed at the British and US-led NATO coalition's indiscriminate use of airpower in Afghanistan and the consequent rise civilian deaths, now standing at over 5,000 since the invasion.

    Foreign Secretary David Milliband said the British government saw Rajapakse's appointment as a unilateral move by Colombo and decided not to accept him.

    "It is tantamount to an intrusion into Great Britain's internal affairs and is disrespectful to the country's statehood," the Secretary told AFP, warning "there could be major repercussions" for relations with Sri Lanka.

    He dubbed Sri Lanka's move "extremely unhelpful" but did not specify if any measures would be taken in retaliation.

    "There is no further discussions with Colombo on the matter," Miliband said, after the British Foreign Office has said talks were ongoing to resolve the dispute.

    Earlier in Colombo, President Mahinda Rajapakse's office said Gothabaya Rajapakse, who is the President's brother, would work with all sides including the Knife Crime Reduction Taskforce, the British Ministry of Defence and other stakeholders including civil society NGOs in finding sustainable solutions to the problems.

    "In this new role, Gothabaya Rajapakse will focus on the immediate humanitarian situation in London and Afghanistan and assess the British's government work to set out humanitarian and political solutions to bring about a lasting end to the conflicts.

    "As special envoy, he will work closely with the British government, leaders from all communities in London, Afghanistan, international agencies and the wider international community," it said in a statement.

    The statement, also issued by the Sri Lankan High Commission in London, quoted Rajapakse's as saying he was "looking forward to contributing to Britain's efforts to improve the serious humanitarian situation and liaising with all parties."

    Britain has resisted calls for a "no-fire period" and "knife amnesty", amid claims from relief agencies that a "humanitarian catastrophe" was unfolding in the island's war zone in London, where tens of thousands of civilians live in fear of knife wielding criminals and also in Afghanistan where where tens of thousands of civilians live in fear of NATO air-strikes.

    Colombo had no comment on Downing Street's rejection of Rajapakse.

    Senior British government officials said here that Colombo had not consulted with London before making the appointment.

    The appointment came two days after British National Party nationalists protested outside the Sri Lankan High Commission, demanding that international officials keep out of Great Britain's internal affairs.

    Don’t know whether you are aware of events on the 2nd of February. We had a few inches of snow in London and the whole city came to a grinding halt. No trains, no buses and just a few tube lines were operational. Millions of commuters were stranded, billions of £s worth of damage to the economy. But by midday the Sri Lankan High Commissioner, his Excellency Justice Nihal Jayasinghe was already at Millbank, the conservative party HQ in discussions with David Cameron and Theresa Villiers on how Sri Lanka can get London moving by the next working day. Later he called a press conference at SLHC where the Anglo Lankan gritting plan was announced.

  134. Prabakaran,if still living must leave immediately to either Canada or UK and establish their Eelam there as the majority of their people lives there. I think there aren’t more than 50,000 in Vanni for him to rule so he is wasting his time there. Most of his people have escaped to these countries as bogus refugees and now they are using SL as an excuse to smuggle out Tamil nadhu citizens as bogus Srilankan citizens. I met two such young fellows getting in to a bus after work wearing a tee shirt with a Sri Lankan flag, pretending to be a SL refugee. The other factors implicated to our conflict is being exploited by others which makes it a long winded problem to us.
    It seems the government here seems fit to send an emissary here to solve the problems in the island because over two hundred thousand Diaspora votes are essential to re elect the MPs who have a sizable Tamil population in those constituencies .What do one expect from the politicians and their insincerity is common to most of the politicians in the world?

    * SPECIAL UNIT AT AIRPORT
    * 20 ALREADY NABBED

    By Gayan Kumara Weerasingha

    A separate unit of the State Intelligence Service (SIS) has been set up at the Bandaranaike International Airport to apprehend LTTE cadres and their leaders who were trying to flee the country in the face of military operations against the LTTE, sources said.
    The unit, under the command of an ASP, keeps a 24 -hour watch at the airport on all passengers traveling out of the country.
    Sources reveal that this unit has already apprehended around 20 suspected LTTE cadres who had tried to flee the country in disguise. A senior police officer told Lakbimanews that an LTTE cadre who posed as a journalist was also among those arrested, and that steps have been taken to hand all those apprehended over to the Terrorist Investigation Division for further investigations. Speaking further, the police officer said that this special division of the SIS was also tracking LTTE cadres entering the country from overseas and that this was being done with the collaboration of foreign intelligence agencies.

  157. The move by the SLA to establish the "No Fire Zone" is smart. 1st NFZ had 2 main objectives among the others;
    1. Move the civillians away from the SLA's main target PTK
    2. Ensure that civillinas have more than one escape route

    Although many civillians managed to escape in to governmnt controlled areas within the past few weeks, the numbers dropped drastically with the LTTE taking a more violent approach to stop them.
    Battles for PTK also got bloody with the LTTE throwing everything they had at the Troops and SLA progress was slow.

    Short sighted LTTE, with the hope of stopping the civillians from escaping, pushed them furhter eastwards.
    This however paved the way for the SLA to take advantage of the situation and make their next strategic move by establising the 2nd NFZ on the eastern coast.

    The main objective is not to rescue the civillians by sea, but to capture the remaining land areas under the LTTE. The General now has enough access routes to launch attacks on remaining LTTE strong points, with a free hand.

    LTTE managed to use the civillian factor to its advantage for too long by delaying the forward march of the troops. Finally, the battle planners thought, enough is enough and the LTTE should not be allowed to exploit the civillian factor anymore.

    Any civillians still in the previous NFZ, better be moved to the new NFZ...

  161. US military intelligence is hiring.

    If you speak tamil, please apply, even if you are only a permanent resident. Tamil speakers are urgently needed as 'Intel analysts' currently.

    With the happenings in SL, these nations are getting jittery, and want to know what the monkeys are saying to each other. Prevention is always better than cure and the best way to prevent a potentially 'explosive' situation on own soil is to know about it before it happens.

  167. Guys,

    Breaking News

    The newsreport attributed to Basil Rajapakse in the Sunday Times about Prabha committing mass suicide is not true, according to my man who wears boots and walk with tik tik tik.

    A denial will shortly follow in the electronic media.

  168. SLG war strategy = 100%
    SLG Media War strategy = could do better ….

    Let me explain:
    a) We have reporting restriction:
    I have no problem with the SLG policy on reporting from the war zone. After all, during the Falklands and the Iraq wars, the British Army took only embedded reporters to the war front. And we all know what happened to the (UK) ITN team, who tried to report the war independently of the military.

    b) We do not provide war related footage/ interviews.
    The state broadcaster Rupavahini / ITN does not provide any output which could be useful to foreign media.
    Note- Defence.lk is doing a great job with limited resources. For example it carried the IDP suicide bomber story with embedded video, within a couple of hours of the incident. The link was ideal to publicise the event, but for broadcast media, we need the whole package - English subtitles / narration / editing and HQ pictures.

    c) Then we complain about the international media not reporting the war properly, e.g.: 'Tell the whole truth' says Secretary Defence.


    Some of you will say who cares; the war will be over soon. Well, just remember we need a well-organised media unit for the next stage of the battle: to expose what the LTTE was all about and to out those who worked for it. At the same time we need to counteract the LTTE propaganda against the SLG, which is now gathering pace.
    To give you an example, this Sunday morning, GTV the London based terrorist TV channel, had Fr S.J. Emmanuel, president of the International Tamil Federation presenting a programme in English. It was all about the IDPs with news footage from the jungle. All the interviews with the civilians were subtitled, with sombre music in the background and broadcast quality pictures and editing.
    This programme was free to air and could be seen all over Europe and the Middle East.

  171. No_Mess,

    I certainly agree with you!

    It seems like there is no competent person formulating and executing a comprehensive media strategy.

    But we have a "Media Minister" that no other country has.

    It seems that the ROI we getting from the Media Ministry is very poor! Perhaps, MR should think to change the Minister and give the ministry to someone else who can do the job.

    How to tackle this Civilian Issue?

    One way to get the civilians out is to pray for heavy rains that might induce the people living in jungles to break out.Each time I have visited areas north of Trinco it rained miserably without shelter it's impossible to stay long outside.

  180. US military intelligence is hiring tamil speaking 'intelligence analysts' in a hurry. There seems to be a growing unease among most western nations that the defeated tigers will slink in and cause havoc in their countries, and/or those who have been dormant for a while as 'sleeper agents' would go active in an effort to draw attention to their lost cause.

    Any way, looks like it is time for those who slept with mogrels to wake up and find themselves infested with fleas. These nations thought this day would never come, not even when the fighting restarted in 2006.

  181. My 70 years old mother returned from a medical camp attending to the villagers in the liberated areas north of Trinco. Usually an acidy critic of any government, this time the old lady is impressed by how well the area has become stable and how economic activity is picking up.

    Her fervant hope was that the politicians would not try to mess things up, but should allow individual entreprenuership change the landscape. Some of the discussions her group of docs had had with the GA's and military commaders in those areas are eye openers for how well teh government has planned to bring in direct investment into these areas.
    If that happenes, the tigers and other racist tribalists would have nothing to show the masses as discrimination.
    And that explains the desperation even some of the key-board warriors in these forums, anti-governmental groups and other anti-Sri Lankans feel to undermine what is happening. Similarly LTTE supporting various NGOs and media attempt to deny the existance of these efforts, and istead attempt to draw attention to anti-terrorist activities going on in some of these areas to flush out infilterators.

    The truth and the developmental opportunities, once seen by the local area civillians with their own eyes, will end all 'cause' for war.

    This is endgame, exactly how it should be. All Sri Lankans must put aside political and other divisions and unite in this single cause for the sake of all Sri Lankans.

    Take it from me, once a staunch UNP'r and now global citizen.

  183. The Brits and EU may like to masterbate thinking they still are the masters of the world, but Obama sending Clinton to Asia, contrary to the previous pilgrimages to UK and Europe, tells the global view.

    Europe is just the dried-up 'hind tit' says a streetwise American from the mid-west, who goes on to say 'Asia and the US will provide the economic and military stability respectively in joint co-operation. The excitement is in the eastern part of the world, especially in emerging markets'..

    Neverthelss, even though the Brits may be out of line in this case, SL still needs to remember our own motto..'we do not have enemies and all are friends.'

  184. Winning the shooting war and losing the PR war

    "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", Churchill.

    Despite the costly gains on the battlefield, paid for with the lives of our soldiers, the GOSL is losing to the LTTE in the international public relations arena.

    The LTTE's most effective weapon is no longer the Black Tiger suicide bomber. Instead, it has deployed, with devastating impact, a legion of lies, half-truths and unverifiable claims, which the world's media has repeated verbatim, often with readers and viewers unaware of the source of these questionable assertions.

    The LTTE is ably assisted by its media and political sympathisers, including such well known LTTE stooges like Keith Vaz MP, Simon Hughes MP, Robert Evans MP etc.

    Why is the GOSL so slow to react and understand the damage being done to its' cause by the lack of counter action to the LTTE's propaganda?

    Where is the GOSL's co-ordinated counter-attack using skilled speakers and advocates available to it. In my opinion, some of the most effective spokespeople are Dr. Dayan Jayatilleke, Dr Palitha Kohona and Prof Rajiva Wijesinghe. At least one of them should be on permanent standby to react and rebut various LTTE inspired allegations. They are combative, articulate, speak and write excellent English and will not bow down in front Western media interviewers.

    Example 1: The BBC interviewed an Amnesty International spokesman about the situation in SL, during the early days of LTTE deploying civilians as human shields. He trotted out the usual allegations that the shelling was by the SLA, made no real mention of the LTTE having taken the civilians along as hostages/bullet catchers etc. Typically, the BBC did not seek any comments or rebuttals from a GOSL spokesman. Why? The BBC and other important media must be informed in no uncertain terms that balance demands that the GOSL's spokespeople must be allowed to counter LTTE propaganda.

    Example 2: The 'concentration camp' story. The Times article did the damage. Where was the rebuttal by GOSL spokesmen? Newspapers can and have been sued for printing lies. The GOSL must demand that a retraction be published, as long as it can prove that the 'concentration camp' story is a pure fabrication.

    In the UK, the High Commission is conspicuous by its absence in print and on TV. The HC's press people should be on continuous alert, ready to insist on speaking with the main local and international news channels, ready to discredit the LTTE inspired propaganda. If this is done often enough and the LTTE stories are shown to be the fabrications that they are, the Western media outlets will be more hesitant to blindly print and transmit LTTE-instigated propaganda.

    The GOSL cannot afford to lose any more time in resolving this matter. I'd argue that the PR offensive is now at least as important as the military offensive in shaping the perceptions of what Sri Lanka has achieved and what it intends to achieve after the final annihilation of the LTTE's main force units.

    As part of this PR offensive, reporters should be taken to the IDP camps and the front lines to be shown undisputed evidence of the LTTE using civilians as human shields. If they subsequently fail to report the facts, their credibility will be shattered.
