it wasnt permanent aid that was given, it was temporary aid that every country including poor countries like SL also send. What was the need to send aid to Nepal during recent earthquake when we know how millions of SL survive in poverty and you have world powers providing much better resources to Nepal. Humanitarian need for time being. i havent come across any documents suggesting Jaffna was under SL control.. and if so absolute considering north was effectively cut from rest of the country. Shows how much LTTE had managed to gain contrary to your views that SL was under taking quite a winning offensive please show the document. Show/link to the article about alleged violation of human rights and punishment meted out. Well we all know how much SL authorities objected to even the UN draft with suggested SL to at least investigate the alleged violation or allow international observers to do the same, so its hard to believe just because TNA is in power up north SL will allow those observers to get in. No you cant, u do know the difference between international waters and territorial waters dont you? U can stalk them, observe them but you cant chase them away from international waters just like what US and USSR did.
