Never in the battle against the deadly scourge of terrorism have so many owed so much to so few (thank you, Churchill).
Today, thanks to the brave and valiant soldiers of the Sri Lankan Army, LTTE, one of the most cruel terrorist organization the world has ever seen, is facing annihilation.
Although the LTTE’s certain defeat has been late in coming, it still comes as welcome tidings.
India has seen at close quarters the folly ofÂ providing succor to these LTTE monsters.
On a dark night some 18 years ago (May 21,Â 1991), the LTTE terrorists aided by their quislings in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu killed Indian leader Rajiv Gandhi at an election campaign meeting in Sriperumbudur, 30 miles from Chennai.
Emboldened by contributions from the Tamil diaspora (in Tamil Nadu, Europe and Canada) and drunk on the crime of Rajiv’s assassination, the LTTE followed one vicious and murderous attack upon another until the determination of the current Sri Lankan government and the island nation’s army took holdÂ – to come what may end this evil mob and excise the cancer that was eating away at the country.
Today, as the doughty Sri Lankan Army closes in upon the LTTE terrorists some 50,000 to 100,000 civilians are being held hostage by theÂ LTTE in a small patch of territory of less than 50 sq km in a futile bid to slow the advance of their nemesis. The world will be a better place only when the LTTE terrorists are confined to 6×10 cells.
As we commend the Sri Lankan armed forces, let us not forget to doff our cap to India’s leaders in Delhi for not rushing into Sri Lanka or coercing our neighbors into a hasty ceasefire at the behest of a bunch of clowns from South India.
Let the LTTE elements and their myrmidons in Tamil Nadu, UK, Australia and Canada squeal as much as they want but let there be no wavering in this fight to the finish.
Let us not mislead by calls of genocide into declaring a ceasefire.
Let us not cease fire until the last LTTE terrorist is brought to justice and confined to small pens.
Folks, join us in saluting the brave soldiers of the Sri Lankan Army as they vanquish the LTTE cowards cowering amongst the civilians today.
Years hence, when the definitive history of the fight against terrorism is written our successors will say that this was the Sri Lankan Army’s finest hour.
S.I. : thanks to the brave and valiant soldiers of the Sri Lankan Army
thats funny, SL army has the largest number of cowards .. so far 50,000 of their men escaped the army camps in fear of death… and in recent time many of them were captured and most of them were pardoned as the agreed to serve the forces again.
the victory is NOT due to SL army’s courage.. rather its because of deserters like Karuna from the east .. who knew in and out of vanni, joined the SL govt and helping the forces in tactics, and by the help of indian army and its hi fi equipments(one of the ministers in SL govt had told this in parliment itself)…
Interesting. Plus the smell of victory must be inspiring SL Army.
Some of the Humane acts of Sri Lankan Govt to show that it cares for its Tamil Citizens and this war is only against the LTTE – as stated by them !!!
1) Carry out abortions of Pregnant Tamil women
2) Forcibly Sterilise Women (IDP’s) who are held in concentration camps …also called as refugee camps
3) Bomb the safe Zones (after declaring them as safe zones and asking the civilian population to move there)…. this means maximum casualties
4)Bring Sinhalese from outside and create colonies in Tamil areas …that’s after asking all the Tamils to go to concentration camps for thier own safety …..so that it also becomes convienient to Bomb them .
5)Death Sqauds …people go missing …Rapes …Forcible labour
NOW all of the above is with Civilians and not with LTTE …..and the President says …..Tamil people are our people …we care of them …we are waging this war to save them from the LTTE …
Use of Chemical weapons in this war against the LTTE …that means a new battle front has been opened …
LTTE is made of All those Tamils who have undergone all of the above and much more ….since its only getting worse day by day …..LTTE will exists in some form or the other …..
The war is not over ….it will never be over …
Yes, we’ve heard of the death squads, the White Vans and attack on Media. We remain skeptical of other points unless we see credible links.
Let’s not forget the LTTE hobby of hurling human bombs and car bombs.
Read This ..
Read the piece. Glosses over LTTE atrocities and doesn’t say anything new that other LTTE apologists have not said before.
Let’s not forget the LTTE chose to live by the sword. And they will hopefully perish by the sword.
These LTTE terrorists are getting their just desserts.
This is the article that shows unfair fight. 60,000 troops surrounding 1000 LTTE now, using artilleries gathered from China, India, Pakistan.
SLA gained a lot during the last 5 years, accumulating arms, after branding LTTE “terrorists”. Rajapakses, being US citizens, lived in US, learned it all from GW Bush. First, they “cleaned” the sinhalese resistance by raising false patriotic “sinhala movement”. While doing so, constantly bomb LTTE on raids.
LTTE had all arms supply cutoff by Indian Armed forces help during last 5 years.
This is NOT a fair fight. COWARDLY
1. You write above: LTTE had all arms supply cutoff by Indian Armed forces help during last 5 years.
What do you expect that India will reward them with arms after murdering Rajiv.
2. LTTE has no one to blame but itself.
Remember all those indiscriminate bombings, recruitment of child soldiers…
Arundathi Roy is right. It is a genocide.
LTTE is a creation of Sinhalese government unable to compromise with Tamil Nationality feelings for the last 30 years. We need to understand how it all started. India played a flip-flop role siding with Lanka Govt and then with LTTE. LTTE was trained in TamilNadu by Indian Govt.
Govt of india fears that lankan tamil movement of autonomous tamil state in lanka may spill over here to TamilNadu, also at the same time it needs to keep Jayawerdena govt in check. It is the duality of India that skuttled the peace process. Other side, lankan govt wanted a Buddhist/Sinhala nation, similar to Malaysia, or Indian Hindu nation by BJP.
Prahbhakar is the worst “terrorist”. Arundathi Roy is against LTTE’s ways. However, the 30 years of history can not be forgotten. Now, Rajpakse is starting another terrorism. With China’s help, he is the worst nightmare of india. He got arms and every help from india and he is telling it to go to hell.
1. You write above: It is a genocide.
Just because the LTTE is now on the losing side, the war becomes a genocide?
2. You write: LTTE was trained in TamilNadu by Indian Govt.
But just because a mistake was made once doesn’t mean India must continue to follow a wrong course.
3. LTTE should have thought of the consequences before murdering an Indian leader (Rajiv Gandhi).
4. You write: Govt of india fears that lankan tamil movement of autonomous tamil state in lanka may spill over here to TamilNadu,
Maybe. Maybe not.
Right now Tamils in Tamil Nadu seem more preoccupied with Surya’s Ayan and other forthcoming Kollywood trash.
India’s interest does not lie in avenging Rajiv’s death………Rajiv died in 92 …..where the other govts fools to keep quiet …….. …..As China and maybe US gets a foothold in Sri Lanka ….they will then control the Indian Ocean …..India has not won …..it has lost……..it has shot itself in the foot ………
Even when India had not done anything …..Sri Lanka supported Pakistan druing the 1971 war …wait and watch …
You write above: Rajiv died in 92
No, Rajiv died in 1991.
Whatever it is, SL government and and its army is doing the correct thing. Fight against terrorism. LTTE will soon be vanished from the earth, so theres nothing we can gain by quarreling about them.
It is a pity that nobody wants to stop this genocide.
Now that it is election season the political brokers in TN shout loud on their top voice, organize mass rallies et all to stop this. The reality is they do not want to take any action. Their only fear is that they would loose their commission if this war stops and whether people live or die does not matter to them. Kollywood stars conducted a rally, many people came to meet the stars not to listen to their rhetoric after the rally they all went back to the safety of their home and A/C rooms, mission accomplished for them.
As far as People in TN, as you had said they are busy with the Kollywood, Sun TV and now that IT industry is not doing good, worried about their jobs. But SL is not a isolated case, anywhere there is a war be it Iraq, afghanistan, chechenya, most parts of africa it is the innocent who suffer the most rather than the warring groups. There are lots of cry all across the internet to stop these war but unfortunately they never tend to fall in the ears of designers.
You write: nobody wants to stop this genocide.
Perhaps, if LTTE terrorist Prabhakaran and his henchmen/women surrender to Indian security forces (for the crime of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination), we’d see a let-up in the violence.
LTTE Cadres have already spread out to diff parts of SL and have started engaging in Guerilla warfare ….
Govt has spent all the money in fighting this war and more will be required in days to come to sustain the gains which SL has made out of this war …..
Inflation in SL is a whooping 30% …..Will the govt spend its limited resources in ensuring that the Tamils enjoy a better quality of life OR will it do it for the Sinhalese ….the answer is obvious ……….
Winning the war against LTTE is not a solution ….what it does after that will be the deciding factor …..On whether … Tamils will give up thier demand for Eelam or not ?? ….you can’t do much with empty pockets and doles from other countries ??? …..
IF this continues ….SL will become another Congo …
You write above: Winning the war against LTTE is not a solution
It may not be the only solution but certainly a solution.
Distroying LTTE is a solution we can count on, at least for now.
Im sure SL government will establish democrasy, and let both tamils and singalese live as brother “again”.
