Hundreds of civilians have been killed, thousands wounded, refugees are fleeing, terrorists are using children as suicide bombers and human shields, exploiting their own people and utilizing propaganda to try to gain sympathy for their cause...

"The rebels appeared to be firing mortar shells from one corner of the tiny area still under their control into another section densely populated with civilians.

'The government has brushed off international calls for a humanitarian ceasefire, saying the rebels would use any pause in fighting to regroup.'

The rebels are 'trying to use these people as their last weapon to show the world that the army is firing indiscriminately and to stop this offensive,' said a military spokesman.
Just a few short months ago, a similar war was taking place elsewhere, but then the world viewed the situation rather differently.  

But World, why are you not buying it this time? How come you are actually using the word 'terrorists' now and not 'militants'? Why is it this time you are telling it like it is?

Because it's Sri Lanka and the Tamil Tigers involved here, not Israel, and the 'militants' are not the 'poor' Palestinians who succeed at nothing except manipulating the global media.

World, your hypocrisy is sickening.
