he government of Sri Lanka strongly condemns the LTTE's attempt to blame the Sri Lankan military for the deaths of child solders amongst the other female LTTE cadres at Mullaittivu yesterday, Monday the 14th of August.
Since, the LTTE terrorists are engaged in a full scale war against the security forces; it as been imperative for the government to weaken the terrorists' strongholds in the larger interest of the national security.
Sri Lanka air force fighter jets have been engaged in bombing the strongholds since the LTTE unleashed its brutality against the peace loving citizens in the country.
The targets are pre identified and the locations are well confirmed via very reliable intelligence sources.
Through any counter terrorist operation levels off a threat for the civilian population living at the hostage of the terrorists; it is indeed praise worthy how the Sri Lankan military has been handling their war against terrorism so far. The professionalism acquired by the security forces in anti terrorist warfare has enabled them to defeat one of the most ruthless terrorist organizations in the world. Security forces personnel able to cause the minimum damage to the civilians who are being used as a "human shield" and their property.
Had it not being for the freedom enjoyed by the LTTE terrorist in many countries of the world, mainly due to the world community being deceived by LTTE about their true nature along with the betrayals of many ambitious political leaders; the LTTE would have been long defeated.
However at present, the LTTE's acts of terrorism have instead of winning the support of the civilian masses, are today seeing the erosion of public co-operation. Its is pertinent to recall how the LTTE stated at grass-root level and expanded their activities in the world over networking with other banned illegal terrorist organizations.
The contributions made by the LTTE, to help and assist other terrorist organizations in the world subtly and manipulating, are today an open secret the public know much about.
Among many such strategies, the LTTE's propaganda wings have been able to developed arms that some terror sympathizers even identified as a benchmark for other terrorist group.
The "tragedy of Mullaittivu" yesterday is one such "bloody" drama enacted by inhuman LTTE propagandists. Child soldering is a war crime the world strongly condemns. It is reliably understood that the children among the other youth who lost their lives inside the terrorist base, were indeed the victims of a barbaric organization.
The government of Sri Lanka has many times urged the international community to take strong action against the LTTE to stop child soldering. The SLMM itself recently confirmed that the number of child soldiers held by LTTE is over 3000.
The LTTE propagandist however, disclosed the hoarding of innocent civilians forcibly to LTTE military training bases many times during past few months. The resist maniac Prabakaran has himself coined this very act in his ceremonial fashion as the preparation for the "final war". Thus, It is ironic that if those pro- LTTE media men says that the LTTE were conducting a class for first -aid training for " School Girls" in a Monday morning when those ' School Children' should be at their proper schools. The video clip attached to this document shows many such " school girls and boys" are being trained by the LTTE.
It is well known fact that the Tamil children of North and East provinces are deprived of school education by the LTTE. The LTTE has make it a habit to force children to various protest campaigns just to show off to the world that they are being supported by the Tamil youth. However, the so called liberator chief - Prbhakaran does all these atrocities against the Tamil children whilst his own daughter is studying to be a medical doctor at a prestige medical school in Europe.
It should be understood that the decision of Sri Lanka to repulse the LTTE did not come about over night. It has been through years of painful patience and grave losses that the government was compelled to move her military.
The LTTE at present exerts its fullest might to annihilate the security forces in Jaffna peninsula.
Few days ago it killed hundred of civilians and made 40,000 others to flee from their homes in the east. Further, it caused damages to 15,000 innocent civilians whose lives are at stake by cutting off the water supply of Mavil Aru. Now the bombs are exploded in the southern cities whilst many other plans of attack are being disclosed.
In this backdrop there is no other alternative for the government than to eliminate the terrorism for the safety of its people. No government in the world can risk the lives of millions for satanic demands of sew racist maniacs.
As late honorable Laksman Kadiragamar once noted "terrorism must be eliminated; whatever its cause may be". The vision of the national leadership is to free the next generation of the country from the menace of terrorism. The MOD along with its units is bound to make this noble objective a reality.
