Death is life

It’s not just Zionist hacks who lie about civilian casualties in war.

Clearly the Sri Lankan government is taking lessons from the master:

For the foreign correspondent, everything in Sri Lanka begins and ends with the armed forces: where one can travel; what one can film; even to whom one can speak. And dealing with the military is like travelling through the looking glass, although a blunter analogy would be with George Orwell’s 1984.

They lie brazenly and the lies aren’t even credible.

The UN may tell you that at least 2000 civilians have been killed in fighting since January, but Sri Lanka’s Secretary of Defence, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, says there are none.

Absolutely none. “If you want to believe me, believe me, no civilian casualties.

“We have taken all the precautions to avoid civilian casualties …The world has to appreciate this, if somebody doesn’t appreciate this — bad luck,” he told me.

The reality, like in Palestine, is utterly different.
