No! It's just impossible! In the military there are secrets that will never be revealed. A fair trial means that all the information can be found and used. It's just not like that when it involves the army. Not in the US, not anywhere else. There are just other rules when it comes to these kind of things!

Military is "military", whether it handles fairly or not – people at large will consider "biased: and will tarnish the image US wants to build up. May be a challenge but the way forward for US is drop the Military Commissions and that is what American People voted for Obama

Terrorists are terrorists, whether they are in America, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, or in SRI LANKA. LTTE have showed that homelands cannot be won by killing innocent Sri Lankans, whether Sinhalese, Muslims or Tamils. Homelands for Tamils cannot be won by killing his own Tamil people. International community shall also be ashamed for speaking for LTTE because all of the stock of weapons captured were taken from abroad. Most of the Claymore Bombs were used for killing civilians, cold blooded. War is a breadwinner, even now for most of the NGOs.

LTTE has been brutal for almost three decades and killed thousands of innocent Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslim people in the country and devastated the country's economy. finally it has received what they must required. Its all over now and this is a victory of all Sri Lankans but not only Sinhalese. And it is so sad to here specially US and US based NGOs are backing up the LTTE and threaten SL government to protect human rights despite the US is killed thousands of innocent civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They gotta be kidding us!!!!

Sri Lanka has proved that Terrorism can be wipe out. The susses for t is in my opinion was not allowing the NGO's in conflict areas,

In tamil areas nobody there to speek up with all their mights, they just have to protect their lives, if they can do it peacefully they are very lucky people. Whoever get killed, they die without any proves or any evidence. People who are wounded they die too, but slowly because no food, no meds, no family members to sit beside. The military get feeded every meals and extra snacks and got paided, beside they have tamil wounded (physically and mentally) woman ready for sexual assault. What else they need? We were born there we have seen every thing thats why we are here but parts of us still living there and fighting for our rights…If you want to die with all your dignity you still have to continue fighting for your basic dam rights.
Thanks for the opportunity.
love you all.

if you believe that this is a political solution, then that is like saying the Holocaust and Darfur genocide never happened. The government is killing the tamil people, not saving them. The idea that Rajabakshe is saving tamil people is all propoganda. He has killed more than 80000 people in 2 days, but the western world has not heard this information. The only information the western world is concerned with is the LTTE and their "attacking against tamil people." Why would the LTTE kill and attack their own people? This is all lies. The LTTE is not a terrorist guerila group. In fact, you might have not known this fact, but the Sri Lankan army has forced the sinhalese people to join the army, they have used child soldiers, and they don't inform the soldier's parent's that their child is dead. Why doesn't the western world look at these facts? Please don't say that it is the tamil people that are bad. It is the government that has done attrocities to their own people. Sri Lanka is NOT A DEMOCRATIC NATION, IT IS A DICTATORSHIP!
