Air Force Commander Air Marshal Roshan:Dirty Rule


By The Shrew

Sri Lanka‘s 12th Air Force Commander Air Marshal Roshan Goonetilleke, son of former Air Marshal Harry Goonetilleke who was the fifth Commander of the SLAF has proved he is not a cut above the rest in lowering standards of educational criteria for cadet officers joining the SLAF in order to accommodate his 21 year-old-son Rehan Goonetilleke.

The latter does not possess the necessary A/Level qualifications to sign up as a cadet pilot in the air force and so in January this year after the SLAF called for fresh cadet officers which specified A/Level’s as a must to enter,  a subsequent advertisement placed only a few weeks later specified that only O/Level qualifications are required to join the SLAF as a cadet pilot.

Rehan Goonetilleke is to be inducted into the SLAF and is due over a period of time to receive a thorough grounding in flying both here and abroad.

Prior to signing up with the air force, the young Goonetilleke secured his Private Pilot License (PPL) from Skyline Aviation (Pvt) Ltd. two months ago.  A license, his father despite being Commander of the SLAF never paid for.

The other side of Kilinochchi battle

By Arush from Wales

(Lanka-e-News -01st Nov 2008- 6.30PM –Defence Analyse-)

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickremanayake announced on August 18 “We are very close to Kilinochchi. Which is not far from our sight,” Wickremanayake assured for Singalees. But heavy battles are continuing until now (58 days), this indicated that the Kilinochchi will not be an easy task. The battle is continuing from Vannerikkulam to Akkarayan where positions held by the Army’s 58 and the 57 Division converged. Both Divisions are suffering heavy casualties. Troops are still 16 kilometres away from Kilinochchi.

According to the government statistics over 1,098 soldiers have been killed and more than 8281 injured in the battle during past nine months of this year, with the worst of the battle clearly yet to come as the military delves into the heart of Kilinochchi. By releasing figures minimising the casualties suffered by the military, without the ‘Missing-In-Action’ and ‘Deserters’ figures, the government has been able to hide the true fact of the war.

Signs are that the military analyst predictions are coming true. The number of soldiers killed each month in combat has seen a gradual increase over this year. By the end of Ceasefire Agreement, government had started the full scale war against LTTE. The danger was that the war begun out of miscalculation, misperception and escalation of government rather than design.

New Dimension in Eelam WAR IV , What is the next Move Prabakharan ?


Eelam struggle is getting a new  Dimension

So far the victory and the success credits go  for government as Pirabaharan is loosing continuously after Mahinda Rajapakse . As LTTE estimated Mahinda and co ,they are not that much fools and easy to win people. 
UNP was the first political party successfully made a fraction in LTTE ,as UNPers mostly use the brain as the weapon other than arms to defeat the enemy.
In the peace talk season LTTE also violated by involved in taking revenge on the CID officers of Military and police /army departments.
LTTE moved freely in all part of Sri Lanka in 2002 onwards , and utilized the opportunity to killings and revenges on armed forcers whicd lead many key officers to migrate to foreign countries  , but Ranil Wicramasinhe kept silent and planned a very big fraction ,with the Help of  MP Mowlana from Eravur
As the MP from Eravur (eastern )  had long term relationship with Karuna , used to convince him to get out from the LTTE ,and according to the MP Mowlana , Ranil Learned the weaknesses of Karuna and found he is not a person with policies and easy to make him fall in their pitfall .
In few views (Even claimed by Priabaharan ) LTTE was in a stage  ,cannot do anything free as it was in the observation and control of the international community in the Ranils period. Slowly all the ways tighten and forced to narrow their requirements and activities
LTTE Planned to play a  wise game by getting big some of money from government to check mate Ranil in the presidential election in 2005  ,and   they under estimated Mahinda Rajapakse.
You can see LTTE also was not honest in the peace period  as like government. This is the justice of war ,may be both will call it. When LTTE  try a wise move, Government also tried it hard.
Now , we see several dimensions in the war and political situation of this tiny Sri Lanka.
  • Government is approaching LTTE’s heart ,by making movements little by little ,even though not succeeded in a reasonable  distance.
  • Government opened many front lines in the war towards LTTE controlled areas and captured few   so far.
  • Eastern is captured and proved with an election, that democracy is established there now. Even you will not have any as the rulers are arm carrying paramilitary .
Pilliyan  group is now a semi political and semi gangster/Killers group  in the view of matured people. As most of the people from this party are un educated and uncivilized   the general opinion that they will be very difficult to learn to behave thyself in the political assemblies ,But note that definitely Mahinda can control this gangsters also as he have so many ministers in his cabinet who are from underground gangster groups,and with the blessing of the government doing so many illegal business. Mervin is the openly known example for Mahinda Rajapakses ruling law.
Vanni People become dperessed and frustrated
The people living in Vanni under LTTE control also became frustrated as they are not into any modern developments for long  years and living a totally feared life for arial attacks and now DPU attacks.
AS LTTE don’t have other resources ,they force each and every one in VANNI for a weapon training and recruited at least a person from a family under strict law enforced in their  areas.
According to the law there, If you want to open a small cycle repairing Shop at your place in VANNI, you should under go for a weapon training and obtain the certification from authority . The laws are very strict in order to get the carders from the available human resources from VANNI. AS people became frustrated so many became informants ,as we could see successful military aerial operations carried out there .
Exactly the problems   in front of the LTTE are many ,
 (1)  loosing   in the propaganda war nowadays as Pilliyan won the election and gave an impression to the world ,that he turned his way towards democracy and Batticalloa people like him , his activities rather than Pirabaharan.
(2)Loosing the supporters to Pilliyan : By  the money and power or threatening    a group and a community being made from the lower class people of Batticalloa for Pilliyan. As they starve for food ,when their children are eating on time and earning for them from Pilliyan Group ,they now accommodate   the forced recruitment to Pilliyans military . An interview with few mothers of the batticalloa district shows this in Youtube video. (Documentary about the “Bloody War of Sri Lana “)
(3) Loosing the creditability from Tamils as the person protecting  them from the evils like Pilliyan,Karuna etc..l..
(4)Keeping people of VANNI  happy and trustworthy
While safeguarding himself from the aerial attacks and informants from his site , Pirabaharan has to eliminate Pilliyan as well as Government’s terror. Let us see how good thinks happen to the innocent Sri Lankan Tamils at last.
“Fire Bird.”

SO far within a week the number of killed soldierd increased to 100.

LTTE is keeping silent in giving their number of losses nowadays as the real fact may demoralize their soldiers . The new sniper Group implemented in LTTE is making heavy losses to the military with less effort  .LTTE will give the list of the carders died in this operation little by little later.  

LTTE will continue a strategy of fighting  with minimum human resources as they have a limited capabilities  ,But the power of them cannot be under estimated as they have faced such circumstances many times in the past ,and grown with extra power every time.
