A review – Did “SriLanka’s killing fields!” actually happen?

Soliders are killing people in the head and ready to take their dead bodies as trophies!

The army is continously bombing in the no – fire zones and killing innocent civilians!

Liberation of Tamil Tigers Eelam (LTTE) is using innocent civilians as human shields whenever they try to escape!

Learning to live in the terror democracy of the world!!

As our lovely home minister, P.Chidambaram was busy boasting about how Mumbai has not been attacked by terrorists in the last 31 months since the 26/11 incident, terrorists were laughing at his statement. They must be discussing among themselves on how lucky they are that such politicians are ruling the roost in this country. They must be wondering at the idiocy of such horrible claims when all citizens themselves agree that terror attacks are prevented not because of good intelligence but terrorists themselves not planning any such acts.
