India enters into ‘Army-to-Army’ talks with Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 June 2011, 14:17 GMT]
India initiates its first Army-to-Army talk with Sri Lanka, which is viewed as a significant bilateral military collaboration between the two establishments. During the current three-day talks, the two Armies will chalk out the programmes to be undertaken over the next one year, Times of India reported Thursday. At present, India has such military-to-military level cordiality only with nine other countries, the US, UK, Israel, France, Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Bangladesh and Singapore. New Delhi timing the special official recognition and confirming participation with the genocidal military of Sri Lanka occupying the country of Eezham Tamils, send a strong message to those who demand the liberation of Eezham Tamils and talk against war crimes and militarization in the island, political observers said.

A few days ago, an Indian intelligence writer B. Raman, commenting on Channel 4 revelations of war crimes committed on Eezham Tamils, said that “evidence available till now do not bear out the stand of those who accuse the Rajapaksa Government of violations amounting to crimes against humanity or war crimes.”

Discouraging any substantial action from the Indian side, he said in an article dated 17th June, to South Asia Analysis Group, an Indian intelligence-operated outfit in Chennai that “action should be within acceptable limits of our bilateral relations with Sri Lanka and should not be overdone.”

Commenting on the first Army-to-Army talk, an Indian official cited by Times of India said that, "Such interactions will result in a more robust and pragmatic defence cooperation."

India over the last several years has trained thousands of Sri Lankan personnel at its military institutions ranging from Counter-Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School at Vairengte (Mizoram) to School of Artillery at Devlali (Maharashtra), apart from providing specialized naval courses in gunnery, navigation, communication and anti-submarine warfare, Times of India said.

While the UN panel report indicts the SL Army for committing serious war crimes and crimes against humanity, the UN Secretary General recently signed a MoU with Sri Lanka to induct its Army into UN Peace Keeping operations.

A Colombo media on Tuesday has raised a question that what action has so far been taken on more than 100 SL soldiers who were found guilty of raping underage girls in Haiti while on an earlier UN peace-keeping mission.

Meanwhile, the genocidal ‘super military’ of Sri Lanka, carefully bred, protected and experimented by all the powers as a model for future to rule ‘others’, is now transforming into a ‘military corporate.’

While on one hand, carrying out systematic genocide of Eezham Tamils for its popularity and acceptance in the Sinhala south, the SL military on the other hand sets the model of becoming a corporate by itself.

The SL Navy launched a bottled drinking water project in the country of Eezham Tamils at Aandaanku’lam in Trincomalee, last week.

An incumbent of another genocidal establishment in Trincomalee, the Buddhist Sangha, was chosen for the presentation of the first water bottle, marketed under the brand name Blue Water.

Ven Ahungalle Siri Seela Wishudhi Anu Nayake thera of the Sri Dharmavijaya Buddhist Centre, established at Uppuve’li, in Trincomalee received the first bottle to bless the SL military corporate venture in the country of Eezham Tamils.

The occupying SL Navy is also entering into tourism, organizing ‘whale-watching’ off Trincomalee, the SL government-owned Daily News said Wednesday.
