Tamil Tigers

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, colloquially known as Tamil Tigers, is a secessionist militant organization founded by Velupillai Prabhakaran to challenge the Sri Lankan majority Sinhalese government rule of minority Tamil-populated northern Sri Lanka. The Tamil Tigers sought to create an independent state in northern Sri Lanka free of Sinhalese rule, due to racial tensions between the Sinhalese and Tamil populations, as well as government discrimination against Tamil. This campaign led to the violent Sri Lankan Civil War raging from 1983 until 2009, when the Tamil Tigers were militarily defeated by the Sri Lankan Army.

The Tamil Tigers fought the Sri Lankan Army bitterly with the:

Viet Cong

The National Liberation Front, colloquially termed by its enemies as the Viet Cong, is a pro-communist movement that fought to re-unify North and South Vietnam under Communist rule. It evolved from the Viet Minh, the Vietnamese liberation movement that succeeded in ending French rule of Indochina in 1954. In its fight against the South Vietnamese government and its U.S. supporter (which had intervened in the war) the Viet Cong formed a sophisticated political and military organization that worked together in a protracted war strategy. Their strategy is successful in bleeding the will of the Americans to remain in Vietnam, as well as fermenting conditions that weakened the South Vietnamese military, allowing the North Vietnamese military to succeed in decisively defeating their adversary.

The Viet Cong fought their way to victory with the:
