All insurrections and Terrorism thrives on the weakness of its foes which arepsychological.
Mainly these ‘weaknesses’ are the Achilles heel of its enemies
- who invariably areState playe
rs and a perceived ‘brute majority’ and the anarchist siege takes
advantage of this perception playing upon the asymmetry of the Conflict.In this it calls upon a set of superior forces to prevail over its foes on moralgrounds by projecting this perceived vulnerability of a segment of humanity to aperceived aggression against this humanity by working on the bond of thishumanity they share.This worked well as long as the equation was merely seen as an asymmetricalconflict where a segment of humanity is at rebellion against a superior entity- aState or a Majority population at whose mercies was the legitimate rights andexistence of vulnerable minority humanity.Even behind this paradigm of the underdog as a legitimate rebellion of liberationfrom the oppression of a superior entity, were already in place an agreed uponlegitimization of this projection of conflicts by the prevailing global powers.Which were the penultimate Conflict of ethical forces- International Communismand its global thrust of expansionism?The tacit approval of this Sympathy for the causes of liberation movements wasbased on this Containment of Soviet Empire and International Communism ratherthan as a cause per se.The shrewd former head of the LTTE K Pathmanathan articulates this very clearly-that the LTTE kept losing on the ground because of its failure to grasp this Shift of Global paradigm regarding Liberation movements post 9/11.The failure of its Strategic perception towards this change in Internationalsympathy from a legitimization and tacit approval to that of zero tolerance toarmed insurrections since 9/11 attacks by Al qaeda as a common threat surely
lead to its disappointment in an expected Intervention to halt the Lankan Army’s
swift and steady advance till it almost nearly wiped out the LTTE.
 
Almost, since the International wing of its operations were spared and let tocontinue with its work although with constraints and frustrating clamp downs.
ANOTHER TECTONIC POLICY SHIFT
Just like the LTTE failed to grasp the Shift in the prevailing global powers’
paradigms regarding Liberation movements- the Lankan state too had failed tonote a recent Re-Shift of their stand.This was the Arab Springs being presented as an opportunity to the prevailingglobal powers-particularly those seeking Democratization of the Islamic world.Despite many alarms sounded about this line of policy to help actively armedinsurrections with an aim to usher in a democratic regime change as a steptowards the western dispensation and away from radical Islamization.That waiting on the wings of the cheered up
Uprising movements
- were the veryIslamist forces of radicalization that would replace the pro-western thoughdespotic regimes.That exactly was the disastrous result of this reshift of active encouragement of armed struggles of liberation at the Arab world.Instead of democracy and more freedom and liberal values-the Arab Springsbecame
Islamist springs
and all that it achieved was empowering the IslamicBrotherhood, Salaafists, Ennhada and its likes in place of the Mubaraks andGaddafis.This subtle shift of prevailing western alliance is what is now playing out at Lankaas a renewed shift in focus selectively on the Lankan conduct of its ending to thedecades long civil war.This is what has renewed the hopes and ambitions of a previously obvious lostcause of reviving the Liberation struggle and secession at Lanka by the Tamils.
