Govt wants to dominate Sampur

    [Army Chief Lt. Gen. Sarath Fonseka Tuesday emphasized the need to neutralise LTTE units based at Sampur. Fonseka told Asko Numminen, the New Delhi-based Finish Ambassador accredited to Colombo of the urgent need to clear Sampur, thereby enhancing security to the navy base. Fonseka emphasised the importance of protecting the Trincomalee-KKS sea supply route, particularly in view of the recent LTTE bid to cut off the Jaffna peninsula.]

    This indeed excellent news to Sri Lankans. The control would give more freedom to carry out operations with greater power of manipulation.

    Gen. Fonseka you are heading in the right direction Sir, like all great proud sons of mother Lanka!!

    I think this move will secure India`s National security too. If GOSL completely took control of Sampoor to thus protect Trincomalee- KKS harbor, it thus gurantee no liberation front will break in TN.

    SLM can capture Sampur, but then LTTE will attack from either Muthur or Kinniya. If SLM wants to hold on to East, they must weaken LTTE in East and chase LTTE out of Thoppigala jungle too. This will cost SLM many lives, but otherwise it is not that much useful capturing Sampur, since LTTE can fire their field artillery from anywhere 20 miles off south Trinco.

    [The government intends to bring Sampur under its control]

    The GoSL has intended lots of things for years, but they are too impotent to deliver, this will be just the same.

    Lt. Gen. Sarath Fonseka. I am proud of you and our brave SLAF boys for fighting this war for us against these criminals.

    For years, we needed someone like you to take charge and go after these illiterate bandits.

    March on brave SLAF. Gahapang! Gahapang! Gahapang!

    Jinadasa,

    Its important as FL mentioned that holding onto Sampur and weakening the terrorists in the east to drive them away from the area and that is some mission needs careful attention.

    On the way to Sampur, make sure to drop few bombs on LTTE head office in Killinocchi.

    Perhaps killinochchi is next in the list :(

    Govt wants to dominate all of NE.. Just speak the truth man.. No need to hogwash something the whole world sees as an obvious truth ;-)

    I heard Saddam still wants to dominate Iraq.. Fat Chance! LOL

    Wanting to have something is quite different from being able to achieve it.

    Its back to the mid/late 80`s. Every Tamil killed is a LTTE based on GOSL count.

    SL intelligence put LTTE troop strength around 3500 and if you take GOSL count more than half of that is wiped during the last 3 months. With the fire power and air advantage shouldn`t the GOSL dominate whole of NE? Why just Sampur?
