I accept that no body wants to see their own hoses get burnt and loved ones get killed. Thay why it is important to stop support terrorists. What do you thinks a war is? Killing each other and ofcourse there will be civilian casualties.

There civilians were killed because they were kept as human shields. Why did not tamil people in other countries requested LTTE to relese them.
Why you peaple alway pointing Govt.

Where were you tamils when poeple(tamil, sinhalese and muslims) in non war zones like
colombo get killed by bombs set by LTTE. Were they not humans. Boms in Busses & trains?

If you say LTTE was fiting for Tamils rights the Osam is also fiting for Muslims? Why Osama is aterrorist and not Praba.

For your information LTTE invented suicide belts, used women as suicide bombers to kill world leader and recruited children as their solders. How can you validate such things?

Answer thse questions before you make any comments.
