    I really feel sorry for the civilians.
    Also I would like to point out that, if all of this propaganda going about Sri Lankan government using heavy weapons to capture this small area left (approx 3 sq. km) is true, (which government continuously reject those allegations) a person with common sense should think about this,

    How many heavy weapons Sri Lankan army will need to destroy 3 sq .km. If we assume that Sri Lankan army only have multi barrel rocket launchers the answer is only 1 (one) and it only take 44 seconds (if you want to know about them http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinaka_Multi_Barrel_Rocket_Launcher). Actually Sri Lankan army have more than 1 multi barrel rocket launchers many more refills rockets for them. Also they have several types of other heavy weapons too.

    So my point is, if Sri Lankan government and Sri Lankan army do not care about this Tamil civilians trapped in LTTE area (who are there own citizens) why they are not using that 1 multi barrel rocket launcher to finish this conflict once and for all, it will only take 44 seconds to finish this war which have been there for 25 years and can save many solders life (It has been reported more soldier casualties after they have stopped heavy weapons).

    But as far as I can see this international media is only reporting one side of the story, which is LTTE. They mostly take facts (which are not verified) from tamilnet. As free media it is there responsibility get facts from government side too.
