    @Luxman4u, Do you call killing terrorists as genocie. half of Tamil population ( Tamils 12% of total population) live Sinhalese in South. How many Sinhalese live in North, Sinhalese were ethnicaly clenased in North and east. Can you deny that? Searh LTTE attrocities you will find out ow many massacres done by LTTE against Sinhalese. UK, USA, EU tried to save LTTE to drill oil wells in Sri Lanka, didnt succeed. Now Sri Lanka free of terror and ecnomicaly booming.
