Defeating a world class terror organization is no doubt sensational news. When that terror out fit is termed as the most ruthless in the world by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation USA), is termed as undefeatable by the so called military pundits and now its being defeated fair & square by a Military force of a small island called Sri Lanka while the western world sophisticated military forces huff & puff in their wars against terror is sensational news of the highest order any media organization worth its soul would want to be a part of this history in the making .All want to be a part of this party .Alas but this tiny nation called Sri Lanka has decided that No one comes to the party uninvited but surely being big shot media institutions in the west would qualify them to get an invitation. But how on the earth a third world country like Sri Lanka say no to media moguls in the west .But surprise ,surprise Sri Lanka has decided enough is enough and had the spine to say No to these media organization. So since there are no invitations for the party these media institutions now has decided to crash the party. How dare a nation so small say no to the powers that matters .So some of the media institutions are hell bent on discrediting Sri Lanka. Teaching a lesson to Sri Lanka would be their revenge little they realize it is their own credibility ( If they had a credibility may be what is left of it) that they are putting at stake by raising baseless allegations by publishing information disseminated by a well known terrorist group aka LTTE ( Liberation tigers of Tamil Ealam ) a terrorist organization fighting for a separate mono ethnic Tamil homeland in Sri Lanka..
international media has no access to the conflict area
One of the most common and often highlighted issue is Western Media personnel are not allowed in to the conflict area or NFZ( No fire Zone) nor in to the IDP welfare centers. is it because the GOSL( Government of Sri Lanka )has any thing to hide .The answer is No what can the GOSL hide from the western prying eyes of the military satellites of the host countries of these media institutions. There are few reasons
The govt is not in a position to guarantee the security of the media personnel in the conflict area if they get hurt or get killed it would be the same institution that would start screaming at the top of their voices. It is not that far when a foreign journalist was shot and injured by the security forces when she was trying to cross over from the LTTE held area to the govt controlled area in the night after going in to the LTTE controlled area even with out informing the government. And what country allows media personnel access to war zones None of the counties which preaches media freedom to us allow reporters free access to the war zones Mainly due to sensitive information leaks which could be used by the enemy to their advantage so information which is vetted by the respective militaries will be released to the media nothing wrong in that .freedom of the press doesn’t mean that they can poke their nose in to any thing .
Why aren’t the government allow reporters to visit the NFZ( No Fire Zone) there cant be any harm to the reporters there .Theoretically yes all though designated as a NFZ it is a well known fact that the LTTE has its gun positions located inside NFZ even under international law permits to take out these targets even located amidst civilian areas with an appropriate and proportionate use of force .What is proportionate is adequate response to neutralize this threat so so still the reporters are at risk the government in no way can guarantee their safety. But if a reporter is willing to take the risk why does the govt. still refuse the media to go in .Simply they can be taken in as a part of the human shield if these reporters are taken hostage their respective governments would go berserk and will demand to get involved since then they have a right to get involved since lives of their citizens at stake .The GOSL doesn’t want other people to meddle and make things worse because the se saviors are known to mess things in style in which ever conflict they meddle with .The other reason is why should a legitimate government allow a bunch of terrorist thugs access to mass media at its expense to use for their propaganda .These media institutions want access to them because these idiotic media men have given parity status to a legitimate government and a terrorist organization.
then isn’t the IDP camps safer as per governments own declarations on paper this sounds ok here is the practical situation. The government has received any one who has come without arms to these welfare centers but it is a well-known fact that hardcore terrorists are also among them so until all of them are screened and identified only monitored access is provided. because these hardcore carders disseminate lies and bias information .which is taken as truth by unsuspecting media personnel given way these media people act now and they way they publish information from unverifiable sources no wonder the government have second thoughts about allowing them in .
Hospitals are shelled by SLA(Sri lanka Army)
Ironically as per the western media the Sri Lankan forces have targeted all the hospitals sensational headlines isn’t it .this is all the so called media institutions want they don’t give a rat about the civilians of Sri Lanka if they are so concerned about the civilians why not shout in the same tone and pitch when western forces attacks results in deaths .Oh how can they be so careless .ok ok they have apologized saying they are extremely disturbed oh what do they call it “collateral damage. This is a clear ploy of the LTTE to evoke international sympathy and when the army rolls in to these areas what do they find strange the hospitals which were suppose to be shelled are intact may be Sri Lankan hospitals are built with self healing/construction properties .But quiet contrary to the claims we find enough evidence that the tigers have used hospital buildings as their command centers. Not like the sophisticated air forces in the world the Sri Lankan air force (SLAF) uses less complex target acquisition mechanisms due to this SLAF targets are accurate they even managed to bomb the LTTE police centre & The secretariat which was located surrounded by NGO offices in killinochchi with out even the slightest damage to those offices so we don’t miss our targets and hit stray targets like the more advanced air forces .well even the UN was taken on a ride and they had to apologized to the govt but the so called media giants just don’t give the same prominence to the correction .

UN Appologises for cluster bomb comment
Any person who has an iota of knowledge about a site which is hit be shells know the nature of damage to be expected yet none of the usual damage is visible . they claim that people are killed and photographs show dead people who are well inside rooms and theaters were damaged yet no structural damages to the hospital.
Then came the story of 5600 shells being fired with in one night .Oh come on 5600 shells falling on a 4sqkm stretch should flatten the entire area to the ground because any sane army would not fix its arty target on a single grid. Yet even the trees in this area seem to be intact so where have all the shells which is supposed to be hit this area have gone. this is the nature of the reporting of the propaganda machinery of LTTE ,yet the westerners and their so called free media treat these as gospel truth if you want more look at the following photograph which was published in the tamil net isn’t it heart breaking to see a photo graph of this nature
Civilians running for safty . or is it
so much for the credibility of Tamilnet and the LTTE this is what they have being doing for 30 odd years carrying out disinformation campaign after disinformation campaign ,lies to demonize the Sri Lankan government .even after all these if the western media still want to believe what the terror sympathizers say over that of a legitimate democratically elected government. it just shows the idiotic nature of the western media
When the westerners here the word LTTE they think it has all the features characteristics of a conventional army at least that is what the western media has let the people believe. So how do we identify a LTTE cader ? of course by the uniform isn’t it or is it . but the reality is LTTE rarely wear uniforms for combat what you see is managed photo operations where they pose in uniform in reality they come to battle not in uniform but in civilian clothing
The reason is if ever they are killed in the fighting LTTE just take away the guns vola the gun wielding terrorist now becomes an innocent civilian LTTE takes photographs of these carders in civilian cloths who are actually killed in action and photograph and shows to the entire (LTT
So it is up to the western media BBC, Aljaseera ,AFP,CNN and all who are getting mislead by terrorists its your own credibility which is at stake and its your choice whether to be a part of this and loose what ever the remaining credibility you may have being left with or act now as a responsible media organization tomorrow may be too late.
