    During the Tamil-Sinhala war in Sri Lanka especially near the brutal end in 2009, I used to go to American TV news archive to see what US is seeing about the war. Very little. Now they cover the Syrian war everyday. Videos of injured and dead children in Syrian is shown on TV almost daily. I have not seen any such video from Sri Lanka.

    Why this disparity?

    Syria is a hostile nation to the West. No one here really cares about Sri Lanka.

    Middle East lives are no near to Tamil's life.

    because no oil wells are there in vanni and kilinochi.

    Because the so called rebels/terrorists are agents/puppets of the west only.

    This is a very thoughtful comment.

    The Syrian rebels further Western sinister plans, while the LTTE, as evil as they may be, had their own interests in mind.

    Maybe because LTTE refused base for usa when they contacted ,LTTE thought such base in threat to india .If they have given base,tamil people might have settled

    Do you think the Church Funded Christian LTTE is going to be covered by the West?

    It is as cool as Western Media covering Muhajeedin in Afghanistan fighting the Soviets!

    There is no evidence that US offered support in exchange of base. If they did, it is utter foolishness not to accept.

    Actually western media has been functioning as propaganda machines of LTTE and human right activists turned terrorists. Many media harass the Lankan embassy staff whenever there is an interview and already labelled as war crimes which is far from truth. They rarely let giv reply to the allegations and publish propaganda material as evidence sourced fromLTTE.
