Insight By Sunil Kumar For LankaWeb
The Following item was submitted in late November and is being re-posted towards the arguments relative towards exposing the BBC's pro LTTE bias!!
The 'Enigma' of Prabhakaran Or The 'Enema' That Needs To Be Administered To The BBC To Purge Their Misconceptions!
Insight By Sunil Kumar for LankaWeb
Alistair Lawson of the BBC wrote :- that
It seems hallucinatory on the part of Mr Lawson to suggest that "For much of the past three decades his organisation has shown no sign of being defeated militarily by the Sri Lankan army, even though it is vastly outnumbered." which sound typical pro LTTE propaganda often spewed by BBC and others who support Tamil Tiger terrorism just before an anticipated Tiger crunch as the truth is that for the past four decades despite every attempt to acheive their objectives to form a separate state they have failed miserably and today are running helter skelter in disarray with nowhere to hide as they await their nemesis which is total annihilation at the hands of the Sri Lankan Armed forces!
But it seems a reluctant admission by the BBC correspondent (towards duplicity ) that in recent advances by the Army - including the capture of rebel-held eastern parts of the Island in 2007 -it has meant that Prabhakaran is now under more military pressure than at any time which is an understatement as Prabhakaran is literally 'wetting' his pants for fear of his life and probably contemplating his options either of surrendering to the Armed Forces or swallowing the cyanide pill which is sealed in a capsule around his neck!" Prabhakaran is reputed to wear a cyanide capsule around his neck, to be swallowed in the event of his capture. It is fair to assume that he expects the same dedication from his troops, many of whom the Sri Lankan government says are either women or children"quoting Lawsons BBC item.
It is not merely a strong possibility but a foregone conclusion that the town of Kilinochchi will fall soon where such a loss would be a death blow to the terrorists because the town is assumed to be the rebels' de facto capital, with political offices, courts, a police headquarters and other administrative buildings which were of no real significance where more thetrics than reality were presented to a gullible world about its real credibilities!
It has been concluded by many terrorist researchers that he has been wrongfully depicted as a man whom supportives say is much more at ease fighting in the battlefield than he is sitting around a negotiating table partly true perhaps as a result of his slight acumen to manouver an army of insurgent thugs. Whilst being marginally educated and having his speeches written for him by aides and being more of an incoherent babbling country bumpkin turned criminally insane killer as his track record proves, he also has no intellectual means to communicate with wisdom or compassion and depends on brute force when afforded this by weak opposition towards his ill intended objectives.
It is no mere argument but an inalienable fact that any peace process is doomed to failure with Mr Prabhakaran as leader of the Tigers and that even after a Norwegian brokered ceasefire was signed in 2002, the rebels used the lull in fighting to re-group and re-arm as the only means towards sustaining themselves and their pathetic existences as an insurgent group ably backed by dissenting frustrated Tamil Diaspora in a feeble minority although ambitious to attempt overcome the Sinhalese majority comprising of 75% of the nations populace at any cost and what a cost it has been for them for what little gain from the point of view of Sri Lanka's enemies whose losses have now become unsurmountable!
It is a blatant concoction when Prabhakaran's supporters argue that he fully embraced efforts to secure peace, pointing out that in 2002 he began de-commissioning arms, allowed a land route to be opened to the rebels' northern stronghold in the Jaffna peninsula and even gave support to his movement dropping its demand for a separate state which has no tangible evidence or proof to corroborate these and mind boggling as to where the BBC and Mr Lawson obtained these fabrications which is what they are, tantamount to cheap rhetoric perhaps picked up from the babblings of dreamers aspiring to overcome the moderators of Sovereign Democratic Sri Lanka! through insurgent means
When in 2002 to 2008 - the The Mahinda Rajapaksha Government announced that it was formally withdrawing from the ceasefire - Mr Prabhakaran suffered a number of setbacks as his means to regroup were disrupted and the security blanket spread around Sri Lanka to secure it from Prabhakarans terrorists proved a cropper against terrorist ambits and set in motion the wheels of destruction carrying the Armed Forces hell bent on wiping out the terrorist scourge which had plagued the Island Nation for nearly four decades!
The curtain finally fell on Prabhakaran when in 2004 a renegade Tamil Tiger commander once a Prabhakaran loyalist known as Karuna, led a split in the rebel movement in the East - a huge breach of Prabhakaran's security was initiated and a body blow to his ranks dealt which has prevailed to this day and is said to have been the turning point in Sri Lanka's war against terrorism which was then picked up by the Armed Forces under the present commander Lieut Gen. Sarath Fonseka together with the leaderships of the Naval and Air Commands which have equitted themselves to the task of ridding Sri Lanka of Prabhakaran's insurgents very admirably and efficiently!
Thus the BBC's last litany in a long drawn out list of such conducted
by Alistair Lawson continues in it tedious and long drawn tirade of
moaning and griping in favour of the terrorist leader Prabhakaran who
is also sought after by Interpol and India for the crimes of killing
India's much loved Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and the many crimes Prabhakaran
has committed against humanity and is certainly not deserving of any
accolades where realistically the BBC and Mr Lawson's broadcast information
should be trashed effectively rather than being dispensed as the salient
truth which it is the furthest from, to an unsuspecting and at times
gullible world! It is an affront to rational thinking based on logical
interpretation to even suggest that "Prabhakaran is the dominating
force in the rebel movement, and that without his consent peace in Sri
Lanka will never be attainable" as to the contrary, he is a very
sick puppy suffering from both physical as well as mental impediments
rabid on every count who needs to be put out of his misery sooner than
And today it has been followed up with the latest BBC posting which is a continuation of all the confounding concoctions put together by the BBC in what seems like a concerted effort to give legitimacy to the Tamil Tiger terrorists and an endeavour which they don't ever seem to want to desist from albeit with no right to be involved in as it violates many protocols relative to the legitimacies of the global need to wipe out terrorism!!!
" Tamil Tigers vow to keep fighting ~ BBC 23rd Dec.2008
Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger rebels have said they will continue to fight even if they lose their political headquarters town of Kilinochchi.
There has been fierce fighting as the army tries to capture Kilinochchi.
The head of the rebels' political wing told the BBC he rejected the government's offer of talks if the Tigers disarmed first.
The Tigers say they killed 75 soldiers in the latest clashes. The army has put its losses at 12 dead and 12 missing.
The rival claims cannot be independently verified because journalists are barred from the conflict area.
"Freedom... never depends on one city. We can create more communities, more cities and [in] our freedom struggle, we are supported by people.
"We have the confidence that we will capture more areas in our motherland and we will create so many communities in [the] future."
He rejected out of hand the government's offer of talks if the Tigers laid down their weapons first.
"This is not a realistic question, we took up arms to safeguard our people, so we will keep these arms until the safeguard is guaranteed," Mr Nadesan said.
Kilinochchi is a hugely symbolic target of the government's offensive to crush the rebels.
In the town, the Tigers, or Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), have assembled the trappings of the independent state they want for the ethnic Tamil minority, including political offices, courts and a police force.
Government ministers have been predicting the town's imminent capture for months, but the rebels are holding out.
A military spokesman said the people of Sri Lanka wanted the LTTE to be eliminated.
"The military also wanted the same thing and they are doing their level best to capture the rest of the areas" under Tamil Tiger control, said Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara.
Sri Lanka's government says it is on track to win the war but heavy battles are likely to still lie ahead and there is concern about the fate of the large number of civilians in the Tiger-controlled north.
The rebels deny using them as human shields and reject allegations they are forcing people into their ranks to fight."
It's about time the BBC put its money where its mouth is and went to
the Legitimate and Official Sri lankan News Source the Government of
Sri Lanka to get their information about the Situation in Sri Lanka
relative to the war against terrorism at a time when the British Government
categorically agrees that the Sri Lankan Government has every legitimate
right to rid the Nation of the scourge of Tamil Tiger terrorism and
defend her territory and sovereignity from any threat to the nation
posed by terrorism.
