An Open Note to HE President Mahinda Rajapaksa & Secretary of Defense Gothabhaya Rajapaksa.
Posted on December 14th, 2013

Prof. Hudson McLean

Russian Ministry of Defense announced the transfer of technology of UAV Drones to the Indian government.

I am taking this approach, since this matter is in Public Domain, most likely be under current consideration by the LTTE Terrorist Brigade.

Indian government has demonstrated without any illusion of doubt, whose side they Stand-by under any serious condition. If a choice ever existed between Tamil Nadu sponsored LTTE Terrorists and Sri Lanka, could you give a wild guess whose side the Indians will support?

That said, there are serious military repercussions brewing in the Pot of Tea currently standing proud on the breakfast table of the powers be.
The following  published articles should wake up the likes of His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa, President, Gothabhaya Rajapaksa – Secretary of Defense and his supporting officials in their respective departments.
Russian Drones Ready to Fly –
Drones are the Future of Warfare
Navy to use smaller UAV Drones  –
To create public awareness that, wasting money of weaponry from China, Pakistan, Israel will only make the likes of  Mr. Five (5%) Percent General Sarath Fonseka & his family richer and facilitate his run to Australia or Canada.

Guns & Roses are history. Tanks & Bombs are for “yesterday’s men”!

According to current Military opinions, the War Theatre will have a minimum of human lives used & lost.

Few helicopters. tanks & APC might be deployed & lost.  These are expensive toys, setting off a few million dollars a piece. Human lives are priceless, unless they are suicide-cadres of LTTE or Al Qaeda.

The State-of-the-Art weapons will be Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Helicopter Drones, remotely operated to conduct missions of reconnaissance, GPS monitored surveys,  Ultrasonic, Heat sensitive Camera, with wireless transceivers, targeted precision detonations, and return to base without a single life lost.

Currently UAV Helicopter Drones are manufactured & used by USA, Israel, many EU countries, Russia, Iran, China, N & S Korea, Japan on a wide range of missions. Each unit, depending on the Design & Applications may cost between US$ 200,000 – 500,000.

Iran captured a “downed” American UAV in Iran and created the Iranised version with great speed & efficiency.

Imagine hovering over a marshy bog or Indian Ocean, or the tea estates or, simply cruising around Temple Trees and the vicinity, to keep an eye on the  perimeters.  Most VVIP motor convoys might be supported by Drones which will hover ahead of convoy, and inspect a wider area, faster and with greater efficacy & efficiency at minimum of cost.

Ultrasonic, heat sensitive cameras may capture any small incident and relay the information live to a monitoring centre. No need for the pet Alsation to run around leaving his poo behind around the lawns.

Which also mean that, the Terrorist enemy may use similar weapons to target the government from nearby hidden locations, with weapons no larger that a child’s toy car, hidden in a small space, in the boot of a car or in an attic in Kotahena or Wellawatte.

It will be a UAV Drone that will bring down another Drone. Since it will be out of reach for traditional weapons or even an Air Force Jet or Helicopter. The Take-Off & Landing will be a totally different kettle-of-Fish. A UAV Drone may be kept flying for several hours on a few litres of kerosine, much cheaper, safer, faster than engaging a military 4X4 with several uniformed soldiers.

This UAV Helicopter Drones will certainly change the Dimensions of War.

    Thank you Prof. Hudson for enlightening our KEY POLITICIANS. It is better to be prepared & our leaders should know these facts.

    I am not sure why Dr. Gotabaya has to run to India out of all places to discuss matters, when those interested in OUR SIGNATURE should visit Lanka. We should NEVER sign anything which implies, our giving away feedom & sovereignity.

    Thanks again Prof Hudson……….J

    PROF. HUDSON !! Thanks for enlightening the dangers of virtual hidden forms of warfare. President and Secretary, Minister of Defense, takes these thing very lightly. Put all of us Sri Lankans into real Anxiety mode. Patriots are crying for Sri Lanka, to no avail. I do hope they will take cogniscance of what you have reflected. FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED.

    Thank you Prof.

    Drones are the way to go to KILL Tamil Elamists quickly and without own casualties.

    SL MUST buy drones and DEVELOP own drone technology.

    We do have a drone design program under Military R&D wing… It is at early stage. They had sync problem with multiple rotors and I have helped with the sync issues and redesign…

    Sadly SL does not have high level design engineers for hardware… With a help of Moratuwa Don, I have initiated Uni Commercial incubator to create SOC, (System on Chip) for media industry and president have given couple of millions to get it started since software it self is million bucks…
    Indians have already start to ask questions re. this since they are sup prised who in SL capable of using this sophisticated design software. Don is a real gem and got lots of experience in hardware side… This way we can help to protect our IP in this area.

    Some Hard Facts and Numbers on the Fish Poaching Issue by Xinhua.

    Apparently, the GOSL has complained to International maritime organizations and the EU (?), to NO EFFECT.

    Therefore, GOSL has to CONTINUE TAKING ACTION against the POACHERS and INFLICTING FINANCIAL PAIN, until the PAIN is high enough to make the Tamil Nadu Government WINCE & REVERSE course.

    India-Sri Lanka ties netted in fishermen poaching issue

    Dec 16 (Xinhua) COLOMBO- Tension between Sri Lanka and India has spiraled as both sides arrest fishermen crossing into each other’s maritime boundaries with arrests increasing to hundreds on both sides and triggering calls for diplomatic intervention.

    Just last week the Sri Lankan Navy arrested 140 fishermen and 23 boats within just two days. India, not to be outdone, arrested 98 Sri Lankan fishermen in just 13 days in December and with numbers increasing daily. Deeper tensions between Colombo and South Indian state Tamil Nadu seem inevitable. Tamil Nadu and the Sri Lankan government have traditionally had strained relations as the Indian State, home to the largest number of Tamils, has for decades empathized with their Sri Lankan counterparts and their struggle for equal political rights in Sri Lanka.

    With the new rise in fishermen arrests this already tenuous relationship has been further strained with Tamil Nadu politicians accusing the Sri Lankan government of turning the narrow strip of sea dividing the two countries into “an open air prison.”

    Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram is one of the most vociferous critics of Colombo’s human rights record and last week sent a letter accusing Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of being too soft on the fishermen issue with Sri Lanka’s government.

    Even though discussions between the two parties have been mooted for next year, they are yet to get locked down, with fishermen getting caught in the middle.

    Just days after the 140 Indian fishermen were arrested, Colombo hit back blaming Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram for keeping Sri Lankan fishermen “hostage” in order to achieve her political goals.

    Deputy Minister of Fisheries Sarath Kumara Gunarathne said that by arresting Sri Lankan fishermen and holding them in Tamil Nadu, Jayalalitha is attempting to win the support of Indian fishing communities.

    Speaking in Parliament, the deputy minister claimed that the Tamil Nadu chief minister is demanding that Indian fishermen be allowed to poach in Sri Lankan waters using large scale fishing gear. The deputy minister said that the methods used by Indian trawlers to catch fish is damaging marine life in Sri Lankan waters when they cross the international maritime boundary.

    He urged the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), which is Sri Lanka’ s main Tamil party, to raise the issue with Jayalalithaa as it is affecting the livelihood of fishermen in the North that is governed by the TNA.

    Gunarathne also pointed out that attempts are being made to scuttle ties between Sri Lanka and India by using the fishermen issue. However he said President Mahinda Rajapaksa is keen to ensure ties with India and interaction with the Indian central government remain strong.

    Rajapaksa himself earlier this month appealed to India’s Navy Chief D.K. Joshi to end the deadlock between the two countries but little progress has been made.

    Indian fishermen have also alleged that the Sri Lankan navy has attacked them, an accusation that is vehemently denied by the navy.

    According to Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Minister Rajitha Senaratne, the industry loses an estimated 78.9 million U.S. dollars’worth of fish from illegal poaching from South India. The government has targeted 500 million U.S. dollars in revenue for 2013, but has had to keep its expectation low due to the significant losses from poaching.

    Sri Lankan studies estimate that an average of 1,056 Indian boats cross into Sri Lankan waters illegally, which means 19.72 million U.S. dollars is lost from their shrimp catch alone.

    In total Indian fishermen poach at least 65 million kilograms of fish each year. Satellite images suggest that the poaching is done in a highly-organized manner as the bulk of the boats operate in the night and scramble across the international maritime boundary line by four in the morning.

    Colombo has previously defended its soft-peddling of the issue by pointing out that if reports are made to international bodies, most of South India’s fishing industry will be shut down and this could not be allowed because of the close relationship enjoyed by the two countries.

    As many as 400 fish processing plants subsist on this catch and hints have been made by the minister that strong political backing is given by the Tamil Nadu government.

    Sri Lankan officials have complained that international bodies such as the European Union (EU), which is a key market for both India and Sri Lanka, have done nothing to stop the poaching.

    However, EU spokesperson Oliver Drewes told local media that the EU is not empowered to address disputes involving one country with its neighboring countries.

    “It is up to the relevant states to deal with bilateral disputes on fisheries in line with the provisions of international law,” he said. “There are no double standards in the application of the Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Regulation which is based on non-discrimination.”

    Drewes said Sri Lanka had, however, not yet lodged an official complaint with the EU on the Indian poaching issue. “Illegal fishing threatens the livelihood of honest fishermen and it puts at risk the fish supply for the future. At the same time it threatens the environment and the livelihood of coastal communities,” the EU spokesman said.

    The skyrocketing number of arrests on both sides demand some form of diplomatic engagement to take place, say analysts

    Previously both countries agreed that the way forward should be amicable and put in place joint committee with top officials from both countries to interact between the stakeholders but this has gone silent, while allegations and arrests have mounted.

    Relations between Tamil Nadu and Colombo have become even frostier if that is possible, in the aftermath of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), for it is generally believed that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh boycotted the event due to pressure from Tamil Nadu politicians.

    In such a sub-zero environment, dealing with fishing issues has become even more challenging, analysts believe, but it is evident that something must be done fast.

    LTTE Tamils back!

    Look at the ANTI SINHALA TAMIL RIOT that happened today morning. See how Tamilnut INSTIGATED violence.

    “[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 December 2013, 23:12 GMT]
    Colombo has schemed a sinister move to demographically annex Thennai-maravadi, a strategic ancient Tamil village in Kuchchave’li division on the border of Northern and Eastern Provinces with the Sinhala dominated Padavi Sripura division of Trincomalee district, civil sources in Trincomalee told TamilNet. By annexing Thennai-maravadi to Padavi-Sripura, all the administrative affairs of the village would be taken over by the Sinhala officials. This will make it easier for Colombo to carry out the Sinhalicisation of the entire area, Tamil officials in Kuchchave’li Divisional Secretariat said. The lands belonging to Tamils will be seized and handed over to Sinhalese settlers with the aim of permanently wedging the demographic contiguity of the northern and eastern provinces. ”


    “Two excavators and a tipper truck which were parked in the Wilgamvehera area on the Trincomalee-Anuradhapura main road, where a reservoir in being built, have been set on fire and destroyed along with other machinery by a group of persons, police said.

    A group of seven individuals had arrived at the location last night, assaulted and tied up the security guard stationed there to safeguard the equipment before carrying out the act of arson.

    Uppuveli Police and the Navy’s fire brigade managed to douse the fire, however the tipper truck and machinery have been completely destroyed.

    The damages caused by the fire have been estimated at around Rs 9.5 million, police said.”

    This is the work of LTTE Tamils to STOP non-Tamils settling in this area.

    Mavil aru – 2 has happened. What the govt. is going to do?
