Tamil blood has been the most favorite succor of delight of the Terror tiger; obviously, it has been the most productive lifeline for the brute. It is with Tamil blood the tiger grew so fast and so strong. And when it is becoming weaker, it is natural for the brute to crave for more Tamil Blood. The brute is now getting weaker, and desperately looking for more Tamil blood. Dear brothers, sisters and children of Tamil community, beware of the hungry tiger!
The recent escalation of violence against Tamil civilians in North and Eastern provinces implies that the terror leadership has switched his mode of operation to psychological warfare by taking the advantage of Tamil blood. Initially, killing of Tamil civilians by LTTE were limited only to the political opponents and liberal ideologists. Now, it turned to be a "low intensity holocaust" for Tamil, something that LTTE leadership would love to propagate. It seems that Mr. Prbhakaran has realized the best way to create such "holocaust" is to kill own supporters of lesser importance. Mr. Prbhakaran never hesitated to follow his "Big brain's" instructions. It was Pottu Amman's advice he always respected whenever troubled with insecurity. Mr. Prbhakaran even executed his best friend; former deputy leader of LTTE, Gopalaswamy Mahendrarajah alias Mahatiya on the instructions of Pottu Amman. The following paragraph is an extract from an article published on an Indian magazine describing the assassination of Mr. Gopalaswamy:
The former LTTE deputy leader, Gopalaswamy Mahendrarajah alias Mahatiya, was arrested along with around 250 of his suspected supporters on charges of treason on July 31, 1993. He was detained, tortured and interrogated by the Tiger intelligence wing, led by Pottu Amman, at an undisclosed location. A confession of guilt was forcibly extracted, filmed and shown on video to Tiger cadre. Thereafter Mahatiya was executed. So too were many of his one-time bodyguards and supporters. Several hundreds of suspected Mahatiya confidants were detained for prolonged periods and released. The LTTE was purged of all alleged pro-Mahatiya elements. (Frontline, 27th March, 2004).
The above paragraph elaborates the unbridled ambition of the LTTE leadership. Colonel Karuna's lucky escape was the only occasion where Pottu Ammans treason failed. Now, the LTTE leadership wants the government solve his problems, just because of it's inability to accept the reality of its own intelligence wing.
It is not the aim of this article is to find out who is more ambitious; Mr. Prbhakaran or Mr. PottuAmman, or to analyze the internal problems of LTTE, but to reveal the most brutal treachery against the Tamil community; selling of Tamil blood for getting international sympathy. Yet, comprehending the LTTE's latest strategy needs the reader to understand three key points that: Mr. Prbhakaran never hesitated to launch such strategy; Mr. Pottu Amman is equally qualified to plan such strategy, and above anything else the LTTE is getting weaker, day by day.
The initial response of LTTE for depleting Tamil support came up as a series of assassination of Tamil civilians that held different view form LTTE ideology. Then, it turned to be a staging of protest campaigns, in which the schoolchildren and innocent civilians were forcibly lead to commit violence against the security forces. Having failed to get sufficient support from civilians for the fake protest campaigns, LTTE started a spree of abduction of children for forceful conscription. All possible attempts were made to brain wash the civilians with the illusions of racial hatred. The success of the LTTE in this aspect is not yet known. However, the LTTE's next move; to kindle racial violence by its genocidal attempts on Sinhalese and Muslims, met with absolute failure. Meanwhile the security forces maintained the ever stretching limits of tolerance over the continuous killings of their own members on a day to day basis.
The suicide bomb attack in Army headquarters suddenly jolted the government of a possible full scale war. Consequently, the security forces were compelled to eliminate the most imminent danger; the LTTE strongholds in Sampoor. Attempts to regain its lost public image of being a strong militia were totally crushed by the government forces. Thus, the only option left with LTTE is to engage in psychological warfare to fulfill its desperate need for international support. In other word selling Tamil blood for international sympathy.
Since, the attempts to get Tamil Blood out of a racial clash failed; the LTTE is left with two more options. The first is to blame the government for "extra judicial killings" and the other is to fabricate a subtle connection between security forces and the so called paramilitary.
The LTTE went full out with its new strategy highlighting incidents of "missing" Tamil youth. But most of these "missing" youth suddenly turned up at security forces camps as surrendered child soldiers escaping from LTTE. Then a drama was enacted for the consumption of international community by showing off blood stained cloths and various other signs that eight youth had been killed by the security forces. But the attempt failed as the SLMM and other Human Rights activists refuted the LTTE's claims.
Now, the LTTE is going for a more effective drama. Killing of an own supporter of lesser importance in the most brutal way, might have the potential to draw the international sympathy towards LTTE, provided it is carefully handled and the blame be put on the security forces. The killings in Kayts were obviously, a part of the LTTE's overall strategy that was explained so far. The effectiveness of the operation is yet to be known.
It is indeed an inhuman act to kill two innocent children in Kayts. It has been a practice of the LTTE leadership to slaughter innocent infants whilst in their sleep in Sinhalese and Muslim villages. It has been a great delight for the LTTE leadership to see innocent Tamil children dying in the battle field. The Tamil children are the brigade of "one way fighters" (not expecting to return after the battle) in the eyes of Mr. Prbhakaran. Of course, he has nothing to worry; his children are safely studying in a western country.
Beware of the mad tiger!
