The word “genocide” is a heavily abused term in the Sri Lankan context. It is also the most popular oxymoron used with regard to the conflict. On the outward over 70,000 people have died in the twenty-five-years long conflict. During the same time period over two and a half a million people have died of all causes mainly of old age, heart disease and cancer. This makes war deaths a meagre 2.8% of the total number of deaths. In other words war results in 2.8% of deaths in Sri Lanka which is definitely not a significant cause of death. However, the underlying picture is gruelling and cruel. The tiny third world country is cursed with the world’s most ruthless terrorist organisation (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam – LTTE, commonly known as Tamil Tigers) in the world. LTTE’s suicide bombers far outnumber their Iraqi and Afghanistan counterparts. LTTE is openly committing genocide against people of all races in Sri Lanka in every manner imaginable to a satanic mind.
