The Latest LTTE War Cries And Threats A Last Desperate Gasp Towards
Their Survival ?
Intelligence reports reveal that based on their latest
information to hand, the LTTE as a desperate last resort have decided
to further escalate their survival strategies by primarily propagating
a scare tactic to the Nation of Sri Lanka that thery are on on the verge
of launching their Eelam War IV with three main objectives:
1) To capture Jaffna;
2) To create panic in Colombo by hitting economically strategic targets;
3) To target the newly elected President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Targeting Mahinda Rajapakse is said to be a means to create a vacuum
in the leadership and confuse strategists planning to combat the next
offensive of the Tamil Tigers in violation of the Ceasefire Agreement
which idealogically seems as feasible as an LTTE moonshot particularly
after the Lakshman Kadirgamar assassination but" hope it is said
springs eternal" also in the hyena's hunger and often repelled
and destroyed by waiting Lions!.
There is also the possibility that the age old Sinhala concept the 'Nadagama'
has been copied by the LTTE and its propagandists towards the humorous
fiction they seem to relish broadcasting as many discerning Sri Lankans
seem to view it while the metaphor contained at times is even imaginatively
plausible in the turbulent climate of Sri Lanka today as a self styled
panacea to LTTE woes which seem to be on the increase!
While necessary measures towards National Defence need to be set in
place over again,
even hypothetically this information suggests a reaching for the moon
for a second time around by the terrorists who call themselves the LTTE
as all these tactics have already been tried before by them where none
of them have succeeded and they would have to be much better equipped
both mentally and logisticalyl not to mention militarily to accomplish
such stupendous feats but perhaps time appropriate for the National
Defences to be on high alert towards any eventuality be it worth paying
attention to in whatever measure relevant and perhaps even towards eliminating
the LTTE completely and removing their contentious presence from the
Nation of Sri Lanka which they realistically should have undertaken
as a mission of imperative importance when the Tsunami devastated their
resources in Mullattivu yet spared by time, compassion of a needless
nature and circumstance and now they appear to have been recussitated
even in theory!
While some of these reports also suggest that a certain Karikalan,
the operative in charge of the Black Tiger Unit in Colombo, has already
earmarked five suicide squad cadres who are kept in secret safe houses
for highly sensitive tasks, it also has to be noted that the present
huge search operation by the law enforcement agencies where a vast number
of suspected LTTE operatives have been flushed out and apprehended has
not been in vain and will probably continue to a much larger scale of
operation now that the transparencies of the LTTE have been to a degree
exposed by their verbosities and loose tongues even though the capabilities
of succesful execution of these tactics probably lack credibility and
leans towards their detriment and none other.
The affront and nerve of the LTTE propagandists have truly been once
again portrayed through the blatant innuendo laced broadcasts they project
that " in addition to Black Tiger suicide squads, operatives of
Soosais Naval wing too are in Colombo ready to go into action
"where the propaganda has been gobbled up by naively eager intelligence
reporters as must have been their (LTTE's)objective which in turn has
sent out a bulletin which can only be deemed effective fear mongering
with little substance as such capabailites if realistically true and
were ever present in the LTTE organization they would by now be in overall
command of the Nation but it is as the saying goes "Always Better
Safe Than Sorry" and an opportunity for the Nation's defences to
ready themselves for a worst case scenario.
Whoever broadcast the news that "there are nearly two dozen of
'them' waiting in the wings to attack economic targets as well as political
personalities such as Douglas Devananda, V.Anandasanagaree, the Tamil
leaders, Rauff Hakeem, Muslim leader, Wimal Weerawanse, Tilvin de Silva
and Somanwansa Amarasinghe of the JVP has probably achieved the sought
after effect but in all probabilities has also effectively prevented
the threat of any such manifestations where the alertness towards such
an eventuality would be implicit and without reservation redoubled.
The so called LTTE offensives, all but pipe dreams are said to take
off several economic targets in Colombo which will be targeted to completely
paralyze the country and to immobilize the armed forces movements. Among
the said key targets are sources of supplying energy, World Trade Centre
(for the second time), Central Bank, Parliament of Sri Lanka, all the
five star Hotels, Bank of Ceylon and Peoples Bank and the LTTE's Anton
Balasingham and Thamilselvam who are the most likely culprits propagating
such backwater bilge to all effect need to be briefed that the Nation
of Sri Lanka has withstood worse and will be in readiness and should
also be asked politely if they (the LTTE) need directions and tactics
towards their objectives which have failed miserably during previous
attempts and their fortunes this time around likely to be no better
than the previous. Only, this time around there might not be any element
of surprise beyond those the Sri Lankan Defences Forces might have in
readiness towards repelling them in case they get too ambitious!
With reference to the 'main objective of the next LTTE offensive to
capture Jaffna ' which was very nearly accomplished once, due to idiotic
bungling by an incumbent President who completely misguided the Military
High Command at the time and compromised the safety of the forces and
military leaders appointed to the task where precious lives were lost.
Military experts seem to rest assured as the synonymous assurances also
go out to an anxious Nation naturally perturbed by all this idle prattle
that it is wishful thinking by the LTTE and something which this time
around is unlikely to happen even though the most extreme speculations
which might arise as a result of the LTTE scare tactics sound alarming.
Coming from a sick, spineless and worthless former LTTE idealogue Anton
Balasingham who has even fallen from previous LTTE grace and is with
daggers drawn confronting his Vis a Vis Thamilchelvam the rhetoric that
"Preparations are in place to stun and paralyze the Security Forces
by using, what Anton Balasingham calls "special weapons" sounds
like a well formulated scare tactic once again and something for the
British Authorities to chew on as he is uttering such threats while
ensconced in the safe haven of the United Kingdom and audaciously so!
Britain also being a Nation where anti terrorism has predefined official
priorities yet the terrorist idealogue Balasingham and his equally minded
spouse have free passage in the UK with impunity.
While it needs further clarification towards establishing credibilities,
Balasingham it is alleged has been informing his fund raising groups
in UK that the LTTE are now armed with "special weapons" when
they launches their next major assault on Jaffna. Prof. Peter Chalk,
a leading expert on Tamil Tigers strategies, has revealed that the LTTE
is the first terrorist organization to use "chemical weapons".
In one of its earlier offensives it used a chemical to attack an army
camp. Ironically, it backfired because the winds brought it back to
the LTTE, he told a Melbourne audience in one of his lectures. Prof.
Chalk formerly of the Queensland University, is now attached to the
To such an assertion the response of the Sri Lankan Defences should
be implicit, totally in readiness to face such a threat where the retaliatory
measures should probably be voluminous towards searching and destroying
the threat in its entirety while countering the physical dangers involved
where they also seek out an destroy any aerial capabilities the LTTE
have been bragging about, for good measure as it is through such capabilities
that the LTTE could even in theory carry out even the simplest of threats
involving chemical weapons or strikes against any strategic location.
The latest intelligence reports of Armed Forces and their concern about
the use of Thermo Baric weapons against them in the event of such an
eventuality beyond its mythical flavour needs objective viewing towards
equitably returning the same favour as the Armed Forces too are reputed
to be in possesion of Thermo Baric weapons far more sophisticated and
state of the art than the cheap second hand "Bar Baric!" hardware
of similar design smuggled in by the LTTE from mercenary Nations who
have not seen armed conflict in decades and are probably falling to
disuse. The Tamil Tigers are suspected of having used Thermo Baric weapons
in its latest attack on the naval boats but the speculative nature of
the report has its confirmation in the end result where it has been
the fire power of the Navy that has withstood these so called LTTE peashooters
which idiots such as Balasingham seem to compare with Thermo Baric weapons!.
Everything points towards a war of words in the latest rhetoric which
emanates from the LTTE camp despite their latest killing sprees and
appear to be morally boosted by the presence of Norway as their continued
champion without whom the LTTE probably have no legs to stand on as
far as international, credibility is concerned. India's indifference
towards Sri Lanka's needs in a militarily supportive role is probably
further cause for the LTTE to even whimper about this last hurrah they
seem to be aiming at and portrayed by their propagandists as a 'wanna
be ' victory!but should they make that one false move towards an all
out engagement of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces. it would probably be
the moment they would in all their miscalculations realise as futile,
perhaps even suicidal as Sri Lanka's Defence capabilities are not to
be trifled with and that they are not alone by any stretch of the imagination
to engage the worst the LTTE has to offer both logistically and militarily.
It would be a releasing of the highest classified information to disclose
with obvious advantages to the LTTE what supportive resources Sri Lanka
might have if the situation ever became one demanding this support but
to say that it is there would be somewhat of an understatement!
