70 civilians a day have been killed on average in the last few months in the fight between Sri Lankan army forces and the Tamil Tigers, a separatist group. Thousands of civilians have been killed in the current phase of the fighting, including over 6,000 children. Sri Lanka is pushing an offensive to wipe out the Tigers, who have committed many terrorist atrocities over the years.
Does any of this sound like another international conflict that occurred 4 months back, that was never out of the news? Have you heard a peep from Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, or the UN Human Rights Commission about what is going on in Sri Lanka?
Are any European countries, say like Spain and Norway, preparing war crimes indictments against Sri Lankan officials? Has the UN Security Council been called into emergency session to stop the bloodshed?
Have you seen any articles from the Nation Magazine condemning the "bloodthirsty war crimes" committed by Sri Lanka's military?
