(Article: Military Stalemate?)
Ram Mohan (6 Feb. 2008)
It is a military stalemate because the resistance by the oppressed people can never be defeated but it will not be stalemate forever. When the situation is favourable internationally ( Bush goes home) and locally (when the economy of Sri Lanka is about to collapse), the oppressed people will take advantage and exercise their right of self determination by chasing the enemy away and establish SELF RULE. The only way to ensure this is to help those resisting.

At present the Tigers have to defend a limited area of the Vanni which they will defend at all costs whereas the Security Forces of the GoSL will have to defend almost the rest of the Island which they cannot simply do without escalating the costs. Even if it is a near stalemate how long can the Government sustain this stalemate and at what cost, especially with dwindling morale of their Forces?How will they know what more is in store in the strategy of the Tigers?

As Ram Mohan says, stalemate will be short and then comes the bad news, those who are boasting will have to think of different strategies and those who are being attacked will be the attackers, this is the law of the nature, if someone thinks that this is within his/her level of control, obviously they will pay for the wrong assumptions, and then, don't forget to look at the real enemy, who is feeding the economy to keep on fighting, sighting the advantages they will gain through Sinhalese/Tamil conflict, keep your eyes opened, both will be at disadvantage when the real enemy strikes... then be ready to pay for the 'freebies' and 'peebies' you enjoyed from them... this is not a mythical interpretation from the so called 'old texts' from scrolls, this is reality... be ready to face it if you are involved in this cycle of 'struggle'.
