Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa yesterday said the Sri Lankan security forces used traditional military strategies to face enemy attacks during the country’s civil war.

Addressing the graduation ceremony of the asymmetric warfare course conducted by the Sri Lanka Navy at the Trincomalee Naval Base he said the Sri Lanka Navy without ships equipped with sophisticated equipment or high powered attack craft to sail thousands of miles in the deep sea successfully performed its task in the battle field.

Navy personnel from China, Bangladesh, Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka followed the course.

“We have decided to share our experiences in the battle field with the friendly countries in the zone. The course is intended to meet that object. It is the first ever course of military strategies organised by a country to share her experiences with the friendly countries,” Mr. Rajapaksa added. (Amadoru Amarajeewa)

    We seem to be the only Navy in the world used for keeping its people from leaving the country.......

    Priyantha Saturday, 20 April 2013 03:19 AM

    hard to believe.. Coz all the time we used to attack from single front in all previous occasions.. This time we change our strategy to attack from all possible fronts also we built small group concept like 6 man, 8 man teams for DPU.. Likewise there were many... Navy built their small boats attack unit....

    So carpet bombing was a traditional military strategy. Well is all depends on how you define traditional.

    weha Friday, 19 April 2013 01:27 PM

    Have you ever wondered where he was in the 1990s?

    DJ Saturday, 20 April 2013 04:25 AM

    So whats the issue.. he led and eliminated LTTE.. that is the bottom line. Anybody who are not satisfied with this simple fact of course will comment in such a way!!

    Abdul Saturday, 20 April 2013 07:48 AM

    Maybe, Ram has been deported or soon going to be deported from the UK due to terrorist connections.
    That is why he has dropped UK part sadly

    Abdul Saturday, 20 April 2013 07:47 AM

    Priyantha, I can believe Mr. Gotabhaya more than you because he led the forces. Not you????

    vishali Sunday, 21 April 2013 02:27 AM

    Nithya Friday, 19 April 2013 02:28 PM

    Pluto Friday, 19 April 2013 02:38 PM
