Murdering innocents is a small price to pay

The Sri Lankan state has caused untold suffering against the Tamil people in the north of the country.

The government reminds me of Israel, a rogue nation that indiscriminately kills civilians, something now even they acknowledge:

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Telegraph, Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan, alias Colonel Karuna, said president Mahinda Rajapaksa had made a mistake when he claimed no-one died at the hands of the army.

His comments undermine the government’s previous claims and will alert western diplomats gathering evidence on civilian deaths for a future war crimes case.
