Why Tamil Tigers lost in the battlefield?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First, LTTE had committed a political blunder by assassinated Indian former PM, Rajiv Ghandi. Therefore, LTTE lost the supports from Indian government and her people for their independence struggle from the Sri Lanka who is supported by China and Pakistan.

Mere financial supports from Tamil diaspora in other countries cannot match the mighthy resources from China to arm Sri Lankan military.

Second, LTTE engaged terrorism against civilian targets alienated many western governments especially America. I do not understand bombing sacred tooth temple and killing innocent cilivians have any military and political values to LTTE.

Velupillai Prabhakara maybe a superb military leader in the battlefield, but his misstep in the political strategy causing LTTE a total demise.
