Faulty radar helped Tigers?

    Dont blame indian radars. It is our fault, we could have tested the radar hundred times before install it.

    How many times a defence equipment is tested before it put into use. DO our stupid officials know that????

    The air attack was a symbolic win, a show off and it was to satisfy the personal ego of prabhakaran. what LTTE achieved from it?? has it able to liberate areas it lost to SLA recently??? or did it destroy GOSL war machinery??? No

    It was a blessing in disguise for the GOSL. Everybody in the south will look for flying objects in the sky and inform the authorities. GOSL war machinery will be on full alert, will be used more effectively. People are more vigilent now. so this was the one and only chance for LTTE but they did not use it effectively. LTTE will never be able to use air attack second time.

    LTTE gave GOSL an oppurtunity to prepare for the war better. We know what happened to japan after they bomb Pearl harbour.

    LTTE woke up a sleeping lion.

    [Bad workmen allways blame the tools !]

    There is some truth in that .. but here, the `tools` in question were proffered (by India), when the `Master` (SL Govt)was attempting to purchase a Set of modern `Tools` for his `work-men`, from China.

    There are several `lessons` in this episode, for us ..

    (Those who refuse to learn from their mistakes, will go on to make the same mistakes, again and again).

    As an indian, I respect the lives of singalase like the tamils.

    India should help Srilanka to protect their people from a terrorist group banned in india.

    After 9/11 America awakened. This is the time for Srilanka to prevent the LTTE from further progress and find a peaceful solution.

    MR kidding around.

    Now blameing Indian Gov.., MR should leave Defence to Keheliya or even Gota who can work independently.

    MR bring discipline first and face the reality.

    [Faulty radar helped Tigers]

    If the radar was broken why was it not fixed?

    It is kina of a lame excuese isn`t it? What else is not working? Maybe the brains...ha?

    You mean all this time all the radar operators were doing nothing and collecting free pay?

    OH .....how well the SLAF makes excueses?

    Without radar how dose the ATC work?

    Main Air base with a non functional radar? ????????????

    As much as these are lame excuses, this is a good example of the results of getting India involved in our matters.

    Why did India step in and gave us their Radar system, ahead of Chinese one? Beacause they love us? India simply does not want a superior radar system that can challenge India`s ability to raid our borders, if it is ever required. That`s how india works, they never compromise security and think strategically.

    Today, we have swollen India`s `Radar` rope. India is also sending us a `Federal` rope, which we must not swallow at any cost. Remember, India is India.
