    LTTE: Civilians are being killed by the GOSL in the North and East

    GOSL: LTTE is using civilians as a shield.

    GOSL: LTTE is killing civilians in the South because LTTE is getting battered.

    LTTE: If the GOSL can kill civilians in the North and East LTTE can do the same in the South.

    Of the GOSL and the LTTE, who is speaking the Truth and of the two who can be trusted?

    Whatever we write or speak is worthless,if the people`s head,it should reach made out of stone..

    GOSL is to be much blamed for the killing of civilians,it created a breeding ground,and hatred amount the people who trust the capability of it.Because the present and the past madness of the rulers power hungry only, create the situation up to this point..

    So,this is the last chance to the stone headed rulers to be prepared for more sacrifice in the name of our future generaton..to have a civilized society..

    Failing to do so,not even the Creator of the world cannot stop the Island broken into pieces...

    Dear friend, its a good one. But in deaf ears. Fact is No one gives a toss about SL and its people. We are just ponnies in the international chess games & politics. Both Tamils and Sinhalese don`t seem to get it.

    Look what happened on the New year morning... a young women walking to early morining shift at radio was killed by a drunk (alchoholic) diplomat who one of many in the beleive that they are above the law and some ` sudha surya puthra`.

    How is it possible to dangerously drive, kill a pedestrian and drive off without rendering assistance to a injured victim?

    Can he (Christopher Cascon, Canadian, head of International Agency IOM ) do the same in Canada or even Geneva and get away?

    Yes, you can do murder in Sri Lanka and get away if you are a diplomat or foreigner with money and influence.

    He had killed an innocent women and had fled the country showing his middle finger to lanka.....

    Why is this ?.... because lankans are seen as impotent, feable corrupted and inhuman people who can be bought for merely a black label and hundred dollars. Especialy the ones in power.

    INTERESTING PART IS NONE OF OUT DEMALA SINHA BROTHERS WROTE ABOUT THIS INCIDENT IN THIS COLUMN.....

    Victor,

    Diplomats have Diplomatic Immunity from prosecution any where in the world, until that Immunity is removed by the Ambassodor of that country.

    A SL diplomat can similarly drive and kill some one in Canada and if the Immunity is not lifted by the SL Ambassodor then he too will not be able to be prosecuted by the Canadian Police!

    I agree with you that SL is considered as an insignificant entity in the world by most other countries and hardly any one is bothered as to what goes on in SL.

    This is completely PRO LTTE article...

    If civilians were injured in Mannar air attacks, why not a single person was admitted to Mannar Central Hospital??

    Why all of the casualties were taken to Killinochchi??

    Its purely a LTTE training camp.

    Who spread the violence over innocent Sinhala and Tamil people? Its LTTE, blasting bombs in passenger buses in south, trying to arouse feelings against innocent Tamils.

    Its a clear truth that the ordinary Tamil people have their faith in GoSL than LTTE, thats why they flee from uncleared areas to GoSL controlling areas.

    Who breaks Human Rights? Its LTTE, abducting children and keeping civilians as a human shield.

    This is the truth.

    If Sri Lanka to be a peaceful country, LTTE has to quit arms and come to Democratic system, or GoSL have to eradicate LTTE terrorism.

    Victor, it seems to have been that way for a long time. The colonialists were only able to first conquer and then maintain their control because we would rather side with a foreign power rather than unite amongst our own.

    As you very correctly say, the third party in this conflict, the IC, is the 800 pound gorilla in the room that everyone refuses to acknowledge. None of this carnage can take place without the IC. It was the EU`s banning of the LTTE that gave the MR regime the greenlight to carpet bomb areas of the northeast.

    Once the two sides have reduced the country to rubble the IC will send in troops and we will be a colony again. but then we should all be happy since Sinhalas and Tamils all love the white man more than they love each other or even themselves.

    Blaming one another is not going to solve anything.

    After all these years has no one realized it?

    Bottom line the Tamils don`t trust the GoSL as it has not kept its word to the Tamil people.

    The Sinhalese do not like the Tamils for some reason or another.

    This hatred had reached a level that they cannot resolve this matter by themselves. The IC is needed to solve it, as much as it is sad to hear but it is true.

    The UN or some power greater than SL must step in to solve the matter by assuring that all agreement is followed and all promises kept by both sides.

    It is not a bad thing to let the Tamils rule themselves like Singapore who separated from Malaysia .

    Now look at both these countries. They are super powers in South East Asia and good friends.

    Why not let the same happen to SL. Unless SL is afraid it will loose to the Tamils in administering a country.

    All I am saying is WAR did not solve anything in any country in this world. Get that through your thick heads and go for peace and then develop the country.

    30 years of going back wards is enough don`t you think?

    Just look at our neighbors, they are all so advances . Why not try and learn from them who have succeeded. What has this war gained the country and the ordinary people?

    Only pain, misery, shame,and condemnation. Is it necessary? After spending all that money and the loss of life and property?

    If this cannot sink into your heads SL is doomed.

    The politicians and war mongers will get rich and the people ie. you me and our children will be paying the bill for a very long time.

    You decide. The politicians will try and confuse y

    Will you guys answer the question,

    [ Can we, as a nation, afford blanket immunity to the defence establishment and security forces personnel as the blatant disregard for the civilian `collateral` continues?]

    to count the number of extremists and moderates.
