Colombage narrates how US helped destroy LTTE ships

Former Sri Lankan navy chief Admiral Jayanath Colombage has, in his recently published book Asymmetric Warfare At Sea: The Case of Sri Lanka, described how the United States helped the Sri Lankan navy destroy the LTTE’s “floating armories” by supplying vital satellite images of the location of these ship-borne warehouses, the New Indian Express reported.The destruction of the floating armories helped the Sri Lankan navy win Eelam War IV in the sea, which in turn helped the Sri Lankan army win the war on land and the Air Force take on ground targets without fear of being shot down. Based on his doctoral dissertation submitted to General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University here, the book helps debunk the general impression among nationalist Sinhalese that the US was out and out pro-LTTE, and that all that it did during Eelam War IV was to put pressure on the Mahinda Rajapaksa government to stop the war so that the Tiger chieftain, Prabhakaran, and his aides could be whisked away to a safe place. The destruction of the “floating warehouses” had helped cripple the LTTE’s arms and ammunition supply network as these on-sea warehouses had come to play a critical role in the group’s survival in the context of the menacing encirclement that was taking place in the war zone on land – an encirclement which was constantly reducing the land area available to the LTTE to store its munitions. “The US side wanted assurance that we will not attack any innocent ship or civilians unless they are 100 % LTTE combatants. Once the procedure was explained, they were satisfied and positioned a satellite onto the probably area that we gave them.”“Then one day, in September 2007, we got an intelligence report saying that they (the Americans) had detected some suspicious vessel in the area,” Adm.Colombage says.But this posed a major challenge to the SLN. The question was how to reach that distant place, stay there for a while, and sail back to base. As Seelan, a former ‘Sea Tiger’ said: “When army fired a shell, we fired about 20 shells. We fired a lot of shells like mortars and artillery.”The heavy shelling from the LTTE did have a devastating effecting on the Sri Lankan army. A former Army Commander said: “Casualties due to artillery and mortars were the heaviest on our side. I think it was more than 50 percent”.Thus, it became very important for the Sri Lankan navy to cut off the LTTE’s ammo and weapons supply. And when it was discovered that the LTTE was storing its ammunitions in floating warehouses in international waters away from the main shipping lines, the help of the US Ambassador and the US Defense Attache was sought making use of the US Global War on Terror. In the asymmetrical land war that was going on in Sri Lanka, with the LTTE out-manned and out-gunned, the LTTE was using ammunition and area weapons-like artillery and mortars liberally to strike terror in the heart of the enemy.It did not show the restraint and conservatism conventional armies generally show in using their ammo. For the LTTE, firing had to be well-targeted and also exceptionally heavy, to make up for the shortage of men and artillery pieces. “They (the US embassy officials) agreed to provide necessary target information after verifying the tactics and methods used by the SLN (Sri Lankan navy) to attack these floating warehouses,” Adm.Colombage writes. “The OPV (Offshore Petrol Vessel) fleet was ready to go after the LTTE floating warehouses even to distances they have never been. But endurance was the main issue,” a former navy commander pointed out.There had to be enough fuel, food, and ammo onboard. Long sojourns out at sea become problematic for vessels which are old, and the Sri Lankan OPVs were second-hand. Rough seas could also lead to wear and tear. Refueling in foreign ports could not be considered for fear of leaking information to the LTTE.The OPVs were therefore placed on the Equator where the sea is calm and arrangements were made to keep them supplied there, when needed.Between September 10 and 11, 2007, three LTTE vessels were destroyed. On October 17, another one was sunk. Earlier in 2006, an LTTE gun runner was destroyed off Kalmunai in South East Sri Lanka, and in early 2007, another vessel was brought down off Dondra in South Sri Lanka.With successes close to home, the navy was encouraged to go out further into the sea to hunt for such vessels and went 1,500 nautical miles as far as Indonesia. But actionable intelligence was needed to make the venture worthwhile. Hence the appeal to the US for intelligence in 2007.According to a former Director of Naval Intelligence, the destruction of the floating armories deprived the LTTE of a large quantity of 152 mm, 130 mm and 122 mm artillery shells and 122 mm mortar rounds among other ammo. MV Koshia, destroyed in September 2007, had 29,000 artillery shells. The LTTE also lost electronic warfare and communication equipment; high powered outboard motors; water scooters; jet skies; swimmer delivery vehicles; radars; GPSs and other war-like material. MV Matsushima had torpedoes, bullet proof vehicles, light aircraft and tons of explosives besides artillery shells.The destruction of the floating armories did not raise a storm internationally because the world knew that the SLN had only destroyed gun-runners and not innocent vessels, Adm.Colombage notes.Given the lack of large caliber guns and anti-ship missiles, the OPVs used the available armaments on them. To supplement these, the OPVs carried boats of the Small Boats Squadron (SBS). The SBS boats would be sent to take on the LTTE ships. Getting close to the LTTE vessel, the SBS men would get into Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC) and fire Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) to sink the targeted vessels.Between September 10 and 11, 2007, three LTTE vessels were destroyed. On October 17, another one was sunk. Earlier in 2006, an LTTE gun runner was destroyed off Kalmunai in South East Sri Lanka, and in early 2007, another vessel was brought down off Dondra in South Sri Lanka.With successes close to home, the navy was encouraged to go out further into the sea to hunt for such vessels and went 1,500 nautical miles as far as Indonesia.

Over 30 countries act on mad cow disease but more needs to

States are working to fight the spread of the disease, known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), by improving their surveillance systems, according to FAO. In addition, States are banning the import of meat and bone meal as well as live cattle from Western European countries where the presence of the illness has been confirmedThe agency cautioned States against complacency in the fight against BSE and the human Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, or V-CJD. In January, FAO warned that more than 100 countries were at risk because they had imported meat and bone meal or live cattle from Western Europe during the 1980s. The most susceptible regions are Eastern Europe, Asia and the Near East, FAO said, noting that the Czech Republic recently reported its first case of BSE.”BSE may still be undetected in countries outside Western Europe which imported contaminated feed or cattle in the 1980s and 90s and do not have effective surveillance and risk management in place,” said FAO Senior Officer Andrew Speedy. “But if countries take the necessary steps, consumers can be reassured that the beef they eat is safe.” read more

Leaders division looking for key replacements

The Big Ten Leaders division has been affected by graduation, players leaving for the NFL Draft and suspensions, leading to a whole new look for most of the teams. Members of the division spoke with media Wednesday in a teleconference about these replacements and the retooled Big Ten Conference. The Ohio State football team has completed eight practices this spring, and coach Jim Tressel said the coaching staff is pleased with the team’s effort so far. Tressel said the eight practices have been solid and there has been a lot of competition throughout the spring at multiple positions. Tressel addressed the progression of quarterback Terrelle Pryor and his participation in spring practice following foot surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left foot. “He’ll be back running around at the first of May and he can kind of stand still throwing the ball,” Tressel said. He said Pryor’s development as a quarterback should help him get drafted at the same position in the NFL draft, disagreeing with ESPN’s Mel Kiper, who said he thinks Pryor will be an NFL tight end. Tressel also spoke about the quarterback battle and said there is no pecking order for who will start for the Buckeyes in the first five games. Tressel said he wishes someone would jump out and take the job. “I kind of vacillate each day,” Tressel said of the choices at quarterback. Brewster said regardless of who starts at quarterback, the team’s play will not be affected. Junior linebacker Jonathan Newsome was expected to play a part in the Buckeye defense this season. However, Tressel said Newsome has been in his doghouse throughout the spring. “I don’t expect him to be in it long, but sometimes we have to do what we think will help a young person learn,” Tressel said. Brewster said this was one of the best springs he has been a part of at OSU and that the team is staying focused on spring ball and not paying attention to outside distractions. He has been working on making himself more of a complete player and has also been helping the younger guys on the team. “It’s been great to get back on the field and get the feeling back,” Brewster said. Tressel and players Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas will serve a suspension for the first five games of the upcoming season. Indiana looking to compete under 1st-year coach Kevin Wilson was named Indiana’s new coach in December after spending nine seasons as Oklahoma’s offensive coordinator, offensive line coach and tight ends and fullbacks coach. Former coach Bill Lynch was fired with one year left on his contract after earning a 19-30 record in his four seasons with the Hoosiers. Wilson said the Hoosiers will have to replace standout quarterback Ben Chappell from last year’s 5-7 team, but he expects them to be competitive. He said it is important for his players to start to have a more positive outlook and believe in themselves and their abilities for the upcoming season. “This team is right in the mix,” Wilson said. Senior offensive lineman Justin Pagán said he is excited for the new season and Wilson has helped bring a new attitude and a new culture to the team. “The expectation is, we’re going to be better,” Pagán said. “We’re gonna do the work that we haven’t done before.” Badgers looking for key replacements Wisconsin finished the 2010 season on a sour note, losing to TCU in the Rose Bowl. However, it earned a share of the Big Ten title under coach Bret Bielema. Bielema and his Badgers have to replace some key players, but they are still expected to compete in the Leaders division. “I’m really excited for the buildup and race to the championship game,” Bielema said. The Badgers must replace Scott Tolzien at quarterback after two years as the starter, and Bielema said they are looking toward sophomore Jon Budmayr as the replacement. Budmayr is in his third spring with the team, and Bielema said his experience in the past has been beneficial to his progression. The Badgers also lost defensive end J.J. Watt to the NFL Draft, and senior free safety Aaron Henry said that although they will miss Watt’s production, the defense should compete under new defensive coordinator Chris Ash. Henry will look to be a spokesman of the defense this season. “It’s still a work in progress,” Henry said. “I’m still learning and I think I have some really good characteristics of becoming a leader.” Henry also said he expects the secondary to become more involved in the blitz with Ash at his new position. Young Penn State team looks to rebound Joe Paterno has been on the Penn State coaching staff for 60 years, but it is unlikely that he has ever seen the magnitude of off-the-field problems in college football that we are seeing today. “Well, I don’t know if it’s out of control,” Paterno said of the college game. “I do think, obviously, we’ve got some problems. How many, or whether they’ve been made to appear worse than they are because of the media exposure, I don’t know.” But Paterno said he thinks the college game is as good as it ever has been on the field. The Nittany Lions cycled through quarterbacks last season, and Paterno said he has been pleased with the quarterback situation this spring. He said junior Matt McGloin and sophomore Rob Bolden both have shown they have great ability. “We’ll be in great hands with whoever coach decides to pick,” senior wide receiver Derek Moye said. Paterno said he does not think he did a particularly good job last year, but he said his team’s success starts with the head coach and how much effort he puts into it. “If it appears to the kids that I am working harder at it, then good, I’m glad to hear that,” Paterno said. “I hope I’m doing a better job than I did last year.” Moye has to sit out this spring because of a concussion but said he hopes to be back by Saturday’s spring game. He said the rest of the receivers, including junior Justin Brown, have been progressing well throughout spring. Moye said he looks forward to the chance to play in the first Big Ten championship game, and it makes him work that much harder because it is his senior season. Boilermakers escape spring without injuries Purdue, unlike other Big Ten squads, wrapped up its spring practice on Saturday as it held its spring game. Coach Danny Hope said he has seen improvements in all three aspects of his team’s game. “I feel like we improved a lot as a football team in a lot of key areas,” Hope said. “We had a lot of fun and did a good job of keeping our team healthy.” Health was a concern for the Boilermakers, as they lost senior quarterback Robert Marve to injury last season and junior running back Ralph Bolden to injury last spring. Neither played in Saturday’s spring game, but both are expected back in the fall. In Marve’s absence, sophomore quarterback Rob Henry earned the No. 1 quarterback spot at the beginning of spring and kept it until the end. “He has really improved a lot since last year,” Hope said. “We’re encouraged about him.” Henry said he has used this spring to help improve his overall game as a quarterback. “I’m just trying to improve as a quarterback and being able to sit back and throw and then escaping and making plays with my legs,” Henry said. Henry said he has been doing everything he can to get his team to a bowl game and he has been really impressed this spring. Bolden was held out of contact drills this spring, but Hope said Bolden’s return is huge for the team and that he looked good catching the ball and running during practice. Illinois looking for new offensive identity Illini coach Ron Zook said his team has been doing something a bit different this spring. The team has practiced in the morning to accommodate the different school schedules. Zook said the players have enjoyed getting up and going to practice so that they can worry about being college kids when they are finished. The Illini return their starting quarterback from last season, sophomore Nathan Scheelhaase, but they lost leading rusher Mikel Leshoure to the NFL Draft. Scheelhaase will take on a much larger role this season with the loss of the team’s star running back. “He’s been able to take a little bit at a time and he’s gotten better every day,” Zook said. Leshoure led the Big Ten in rushing yards in 2010, with 1,697, the third-best total in the nation. Senior running back Jason Ford, who had 480 yards in 2010, will look to fill in for Leshoure. Illinois will look to improve its passing game this season, meaning Scheelhaase will need to throw more in 2011 than he did in his freshman season. “As a quarterback, I really feel like I can make strides in the passing game,” Scheelhaase said. “If we make some big strides in the passing game, I think our offense can really do some damage this year.” read more

Ireland wants the EU to make shopping online as cheap as the

first_img 24 Comments 12,972 Views Short URL JOBS MINISTER MARY Mitchell O’Connor has called on the EU to tackle “unfair” geo-blocking.Mary Mitchell-O’Connor was in Brussels yesterday saying that the practice had to be tackled at EU level.The process involves blocking access to online products and services based on geographical location taken from an IP address. In May of this year, the EU announced it was looking to bring in new measures to prevent discrimination against online customers depending on their locations.Currently, customers trying to source goods in a country from another EU jurisdiction are sometimes denied the best deals and are regularly redirected to local websites.The Minister said that the EU proposal would benefit shoppers.“I believe that the implementation of this Regulation, after it is agreed with the European Parliament, will prove to be of significant benefit to Irish and European consumers and small businesses when it comes to customers who are looking for choice and value. Many Irish people will be shopping online in the run up to Christmas and we should not be paying over the odds for goods that are cheaper from other locations.”The proposals are also looking at the different prices people must pay for delivery to other countries. One of the examples provided was the price of sending a parcel from the Netherlands to Spain. Doing that would cost €13 but sending a parcel from Spain to the Netherlands would cost €32.74.Another regulation examining the geo-blocking of streaming services is being looked at.Read: Explainer: So what do the EU’s new plans for online shopping mean for you?

Rooney admits missing Manchester United

But it was the right time.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I wasn’t playing, first of all. I have always been a player who wants to play. Obviously, I spoke to the manager and it didn’t look like I was going to play, so it was the right decision and the right time for me to go,” he added.“Obviously, you wish, the ideal situation was staying there and finishing your career there, but football changes. Different things happen and things happen for a reason.”“I left with great memories. I had a new opportunity to go and play in the States,” he commented.“I had a great time at United, though, and again I am looking forward to going back and seeing a few of my team-mates, and a few friends from the staff who I have made along the way.”last_img read more

Solutions sought for lack of detox beds in South central Alaska

first_imgThe Ernie Turner Center in Anchorage. (Credit: Wayde Carroll Photography)More than 60 people seek detox beds in Anchorage every day, but only 14 are available. The director of the Ernie Turner Center, the only detox provider in the area, says it’s a huge problem. A coalition of Anchorage congregations, AFACT, is hosting a town hall meeting Monday night to talk about solutions.Detox centers provide medical and emotional support for people who are trying to rid their bodies of alcohol or drugs. Cook Inlet Tribal Council Director of Recovery Services Rebecca Ling says going through detox is a painful process that needs short- and long-term support.“It’s a very difficult process medically but emotionally and physically. I hear from participants detoxing from heroine that it’s physically painful. I’ll watch them pound on their legs with their fist because their bones hurt. They’re sick.”In 2015, only 450 people detoxed at the Center. Ling says even the 60-person-per-day call log represents only a fraction of the people who need the services.“I believe that the number 60 sounds like a large number, but I think that it’s pretty low considering the individuals that have just stopped calling. ‘Why call? I don’t get a bed. There’s no space for me.’ And some people don’t even know there is detox in the community.”When beds do open up, Ling says they try to track down the people who are on the waiting list, but often the individuals are transient or don’t have phones. She says her staff ask people to call the facility every morning to see if a bed will be available. Even with the great need, sometimes beds sit empty because there isn’t a registered nurse available to check people into the facility.Ling says a lack of funding and a lack of physical space prevent the Center from adding more beds. Community leaders are coming together to discuss the problem Monday night at 7 pm at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.last_img read more
