Every May large Tamil diaspora remembers Tamil genocide day. Two days ago I saw a large poster showing pictures of Tamil war heroes . It reminded me that when the war was at the last stages one of my Tamil patient bitterly complained that Pakistanis are responsible for their defeat. Seems like Pakistan was knee deep in This conflict.
Just like Bahrain we helped save a government but very little will be mentioned of our roles. Just a little summary of what we did for them:


“The agreement came amid Sri Lankan media reports that the Pakistan Air force pilots had participated in several successful air strikes against several military bases of the LTTE in August 2008.


The report further claimed that a highly trained group of Pakistani armed officers are stationed in Colombo to guide the Sri Lankan security forces in their operations against the LTTE. This was quite contrary to the LTTE propaganda that India was helping the Sri Lankan Government. “

It's for the best that our role is down played. Otherwise it could prove challenging in Pakistans overall strategy. If you catch my drift §§•

But what use is that? Still Sri Lankan government is too weak...they have to carefully play a balancing act bcuz they are afraid of India...despite the fact that India tried to undermine them by supporting LTTE.

Brother it’s because of the geo political scenario .... India has way more Tamils in Tamil Nadu than inside SriLanka. The government knows that their hard earned peace can easily disappear if the antagonize India. When you are small and weak you are always afraid of someone bigger carrying a big stick.

er this one needs to look at the history and then the location of SL. It will take time for old generation to go out of politics and once they will have young members in parliament, you might see the difference. Look what happened with Nepal. Nepal was once close to india but now its leaning towards china.

I'm well aware of the location of Sri Lanka...and it's close proximity with India...
Added to that is the massive disparity in military capability. In normal circumstances it makes sense for them not to rock the boat too much. However despite this appeasement(they've been doing for a long while) India still supported LTTE(until they ended up turning against India) against the Sri Lankan government.
...
so if even appeasement didn't stop Indian designs against them...then what other option is there? More appeasement doesn't guarantee safety(as evident by history). The only other option is deterrence. They may not be strong enough on their own...but they can certainly make alliances(and countries like China and Pak will be all too happy to go along with it). This would give India pause and they would think twice before trying any mischief in the future.

It doesn't even have to be an overt military alliance that might cause problems...like for example giving China a naval base on their soil...
...it can start with less provocative steps. Like for example they can start buying defense equipment from China...and do joint training exercises to ensure interoperability(if there's ever a need). Meanwhile give a backdoor nod for close alliance.

A well played role but all in vain, because there's no consistence of foreign policy, like a very well played role in Eastern Punjab but then all lost by own hands.
Same goes for Afghan policy.
Pakistan's foreign policy is just JOGAR, and policy changes with every new coming COAS.

Quite agreed by all of your points, our current FM Qureshi Sb other than acting like Sultan Rahi is doing nothing. The strategy, training and ammo helped Sirilanka armed forces to defeat Tamils,further though questionable yet their aggression was equal to LTTE. However after bombings there perhaps some elements have anti Islamic sentiments.

Yes but sure Tamils don't like Pakistanis.
Tamils terrorists report to Indians, and most certainly report all Pakistanis they come across to the respective reporting structure. Than begins the espionage etc., so be careful there.

Back in time, when Europe decided to give blanket status of refugee to the Srilankans, many Indians declared them selves as Tamils and received European nationality, so you can never be sure, if you are talking to a true Srilankan born Tamil Tiger or just a simple Indian Tamil, declared Srilankan Tamil Tiger.

Firstly Tamils would be not the Correct Terms !!! Tamils are Proud Chola's !!!

United Kingdom have raised Troopers of the Christian Converted Tamils to created Problems in Union of India; Kingdom of Sri Lanka; Republic of Malaysia; Republic of Indonesia & Republic of Maldives.

Indian Armed Forces - Intelligence Bureau has busted these Networks !!!
