Updated: LTTE X-Ray base location area, Google Earth image

Update: 25th Feb 2008: Close up image

Vibe sent an URL with a close of image of the X base area. Jungle paths are marked out.

Original Post

Since I lack the pin point accuracy of our air force, it seems that my post with the Google Earth images showing the general area of LTTE’s “X-Ray” base was off by a few kilometres. Thankfully tinker galloped to the rescue and corrections were made.

The updated image is posted below based (not a pun really) on his info – which makes more sense.

General area of LTTE

Prabhakaran was upset by the errors in the original post. Particularly about a wrongly labelled location marker on Google Earth. I guess what matters is that the air force is more accurate than I am 😉

Defencenet also has an post on the air raid’s aftermath.

  1. Hello my name is Kelly.

    I have been working for a revolutionary peace based organization named Sarvodaya. Your blogs regarding Sri Lanka make me assume that people need our help. Dr. Ari, the fonder, started Sarvodaya in Sri Lanka to improve the condition of lives of many by giving them money and control, to build what they need schools, roads, and so on. The movement is very abstract and there is no other non-profit organization like it (which makes it very hard to write one paragraph about it). The movement itself is based on Buddhist economics and way of life but could possibly be transformed to conform to Western lifestyles. Currently in Sri Lanka the civil war is escalating which makes the movement even more crucial for Sri Lankan citizens. A “Giving Challenge” is occurring at this time and we need to get the word out. Individuals can donate only 10 dollars online and Sarvodaya USA will win $50,000 that will go to help children in Sri Lanka and Nepal. The more donors we get the greater the chance is we will win the $50,000. The challenge ends January 31st so we are asking that you take action as soon as possible.

    If you could insert the information below onto your site, it would be greatly appreciated and you would be helping to make a true difference in Sri Lanka.

    Please feel free to learn more about Sarvodaya USA by visiting http://www.sarvodayausa.org.

    Thank you again in advance:
