Kottegoda fires parting shot at LTTE

  • 6 Dec 2005 01:34:07 GMT

    If the Army can defeat the LTTE why the heck don`t they bomb the living daylights out of VP and his LTTE and end this problem? There are so many who talk about the almighty military power our Army is supposed to have but what about the military power that VP has? That fellow has also being upgrading during the 3 years. We remember how entire Army camps like in Mullaitivu were wiped out by VP and his LTTE and the Army was made to run. What is there to suggest that in these 3 years the Army has emerged the superpower of the 2. The problem with our people is that they always underestimate VP and the LTTE and end up at the receiving end.

    Kiwi,

    He can`t, so what do you want him to do? He has just escaped and next another good posting and life goes on well for him. Once in a way a little `talk` like this to keep the folks under control.

    Life goes on.

    If you have trumps you have to play, just telling we have trumps and not playing them will lead to unexpected defeat. If you have confidence to defeat this brutal terrorist group why you did not at least stop killing your intelligence officers?. I think nearly 90% of your good intelligence officers including Directors, 2 ICs were killed by LTTEs. Now they kill your soldiers. We had a great respect to our forces though some of them involved with certain corruptions.

    I know new Army Chief is a brave and intelligent officer who commanded northern troops several times. LTTEs hate him because he has a brain to destroy LTTEs. We will wait and see how he will tackle this problem

    Thamil,

    Does he belong to Perera & Sons? I respect their `mixure`, the best stuff in SL.

    Don`t blame him. He was wronglY quoted. It should have read as `Kottegoda fires FARTING shots at LTTE`.

    Isnt perera and sons in kollupitiya. I remember buying rolls there many yrs ago. IIRC there was news story (may a month back) about a col or gen who said the SLA ran away many times. Ofcourse on paper everyone looks good.

    Crestfallen Gen.Kottegoda dozing in his arm chair.

    ?Huge load of sewage I am compelled to gobble since this unrefined Gamaya from Giruwapattuwa invaded my elite territory I was relishing in the company of my bosom colleagues CBK/Ranil/Brad/Marapone, through the ballot of illiterate native idiots, lest the Gamaya wouldn?t have bestowed me with the final star on my shoulder. O almighty you just saved my skin.

    I missed the chance to prolong another 4years at the not so hot seat, at least for half of SL with ISGA given, by a hairs breath on that fateful day of 17th. Now that the boat has turned turtle, as usual we all do, I am playing the sonnet of last post to the fall guy. Hopefully, Gamaya would at least give me a cosy life in a far flung isle without more ado.

    Good boy Velu did not scuttle my life plans except bumping off the undercover Thompson guys, after all a spent force with my shrewd scheme that did not make any difference. I issued a few warnings to Velu, of course with his sanction if not these JVP and JHU chauvinistic extremists would have cried for my flesh.

    Nonetheless, all what I can?t bear up with is this other primitive Godaya from Bintenna, Foni who brought disrepute to my star studded class when he murdered the Queen over the HSZ with that Nambiar guy across Palk Strait, that my friend late Taraki taught a few scintillating grammar lessons to godforsaken modaya of all, now crowning my throne.

    A downright insult to the impressive post held by me and a select band of my predecessors and the likes of Gen.Norm, Colin et al should admonish Gamaya from Giruwapattuwa through Cristina Rocca who sends forewarnings to all and sundry from her new desk.

    God save Velu podian for all the patience he had till I left and I wish you all the best to send this fool Foniya soon to where Kobbe and them are eagerly waiting to receive him. Thats when we all can have a hearty laugh. Hah hah ha.

    There is no point in saying that the army is well prepared now. The LTTE is more prepared than before.Why? Norway is funding them to procure arms.The LTTE is demanding more money from the expatriates.More money coming in for the LTTE than the Government. The Government has given more and more time for the LTTE to build up their war machinery.Besides the world governments do not allow the army to sustain the LTTE. This is what happened when India intervened.I feel sorry for Sri Lanka and the world community.

    Kiwikanga,

    Why don`t they bomb? Because the government has singed a CFA with the LTTE and the government is observing it. So they can`t bomb.

    Military strength is no secret but yes there were problems in the past, hope they`ve got them sorted now.

    iF you didn`t notice, the military budget since the CFA was signed, has been no different to that during the war periods. With that lot of cash, of course the army must have been strengthening themselves since the CFA was signed, as there always has been provocations by the LTTE and the army is experienced enough to know LTTE has never been genuine in CFA`s.

    Kiwikanga , you got the point.
