Human shields a War Crime in combat: HRW

    GOSL should help or get the help of HRW to investigate the incidence in VAkare.

    SLA had given notice to these civilians to abandon Vakare. Still they chosed to stay there. LTTE has ahistory of using civilians as human sheilds.

    Any way, SLA should find out at least now, whether the civilians moved out of Vakare.

    If most of them are gone. Just pulvarize Vakare with bombs and clean it out.

    It seems Sri Lankan government side was telling the truth of ltte`s using of the humans as shields to cover their selves and to achieve their (ltte) other goals.

    But it will not give the rights to Sri Lankan government to use the fire power on refugees as their commanders did yesterday.

    Unfortunately, this is the bitter truth. Tiger terrorists live among civilians and using civilians as a human shield. when civilians die, they can discredit GOSL forces and win the sympathy of the international community

    perfidious terrorists!

    Jaguar:

    [Bloody joke....

    another excuse for sinhala governments to wipe out Tamils.]

    I think the report is very unbiased. It blames LTTE for something LTTE actually put to practise and it blames the GOSL for the same manthra they say when ever they make a mistake. How is that a response bias to the sinhala government?

    Let these Tamil members go back to LTTE controlled area and have a taste of cannons fired from LTTE and retaliation by SLA. Then they would come to know what LTTE is up to.

    LTTE being a terrorist organization cannot have camps in designated places as they will be under attack directly ,unlike the SLA who has constitutional rights to set up camps. So LTTE as always done using Tamils as a shield, fire at SLA and leave making the civilians be targets of SLA retaliation .

    The inference the Tamil Diaspora needs to reach is that continuing a military campaign to win Tamil rights do not bring any fruits but misery. Discrimination of Tamils in Education and language had been resolved more than 20 years ago. The financing and supporting of LTTE brings only a perpetual misery and death to Tamil civilians in affected areas. It is time to give up arms and hypocrisy and understand the reality.
