Gen. Fonseka’s sole claim to victory, Green Card and eye on Presidency!

The Army, Navy and the Airforce fought the war as a team with the leadership given by the President as Commander-in-Chief. But after the war, Fonseka claimed sole victory and belittled the role of the Navy and the Air Force.

 This week on a TV programme the former battle commanders of the Vanni front while discussing about the war analysed the role of the Navy and the Air Force. They discussed in detail how the Navy and the Air Force backed them to the hilt during their confrontations with the terrorists. They paid a glowing tribute to the Navy and the Air Force for their support. We should applaud the battle commanders for giving them credit as they said without their unhindered assistance it would have been a Herculean task to end the war quickly.

 In contrast to the battle commanders acknowledging the support of the Navy and the Air Force and working as a team, Gen. Fonseka who is claiming sole right to victory pointed the finger at the army in which he was the Chief, for war crimes. Thus he betrayed the army which he served for more than 30 years.

 As a Green Card holder and aspiring to be a US citizen, Sarath Fonseka has divided loyalties. The opposition is so ‘bankrupt’ of leaders they cannot find anyone other than Gen. Fonseka who is waiting to run away to ‘Greener Pastures’ while at the same time wants to have a go for the Presidency, claiming that he wants to save democracy in Sri Lanka!

    It must be an indication of Sarath Fonseka’s bloated ego that he should claim sole credit for himself and the Army in beating the Tigers. Of course, anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows that it was a COMBINATION of all the services together with the police and civil defence organisations and resolute political direction that made it possible to secure this victory. We know only too well how critical the air cover given by the SLAF was. We are also aware – even if SF has forgotten it – that it is the SLAF that took out Thamiselvam, the first high profile Tiger l to be eliiinated in the final offensive – and that marked a crucial success. And it is the Navy that sank the LTTE ships bringing arms and ammunitions and protected the country’s shores from their smuggling activities. Without cutting off the LTTE’s supplies, the war could never have been won. So, if SF wants to think otherwise, he can only be hallucinating or think that the rest of us are fools. No, sir. SF, you did well, the job that was given to you. But please don’t imagine you achieved more than you actually did.
