Stratergic Victory over Mindless Acts of Violence

September 6, 2006
The Govt of Sri Lanka secured Sampur on the 4th of September. This was seen as a welcome turn of events proving the Govt’s Military Power over the LTTE, as many of their attacks in Colombo took center stage in the Media. Unlike the mindless bombings and failed attempts of the LTTE, the Govt chose strategic targets to execute their goal. A blinded one may still argue that a Training Center is still an Orphanage, I will let you decide.
Sampur has lately proved to be a very huge threat as the LTTE acquired the ability to mount long range artillery attacks on Trinco Harbour from there. The victory at Sampur I’m sure will prove a Moral Booster for Govt Troops who were being teased and their patience tested all these days by the LTTE taking to account the numerous CFA violations.

A few points from the Govt Press Release regarding the take over are pasted below.

“The entire Sampur area is under the control of the Security Forces and the troops advanced and captured the heart of Sampur town and coastal areas in the early hours of yesterday. Ichalampattu, Kadakaracheru and Kattaparichan were taken under the control of the Security Forces at the beginning of this operation,” Defense Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said.

“Our aim is not taking over or occupying the territory but neutralizing the artillery for the safety of civilians. There is the Prima Flour factory and an Indian Oil farm which are located close to the port. These locations and civilians are under immense risk and threat. Therefore we have to provide them security and safety,” Minister Rambukwella said.

“The LTTE cadres have been attacking the Security Forces since August 27 from Sampur using artillery and mortars. The Security Forces retaliated the attacks for the sake of civilians, Army spokesman Brigadier Prasad Samarasinghe said.

As a country our gratitude goes to those Brave Soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the sake of the Unity and Peace of this Country. Let spend a moment for those fallen hero’s as well.

I’ve included a picture posted by a certain “Suren” on one of my previous posts as a Tribute to our Heros.
