    what a joke.. There is no possible method to calculate this. It is like comparing the fire power of western armies and SL army and then calculating the dead according to TNT and file power of such weapons.. This would mean the final war dead would be much much less than the Hiroshima nuclear figures which the LTTE peddle around.. One of many clumsy attempts of some western LTTE supporter.. why don’t u hand it 0ver to CH4 so they can use it on a story board.. and according to this graphic AI and HR watch have lied to use about the deaths in Darfur and Syria.. and we all know they haven’t even finished publishing with Libya as most ares are no go.. Jokers..

      Please note whatever figure you read in the media is only an estimate. You will never know the true figures unless you really want to know the extent of the death toll.

      I suggest you visit every household in the island and contact Sri Lankan diaspora all over the world, collect data and process it eliminating double count.

      Still you may not get it 100% right, but state your figures with X degree of certainty.

      Go start your work immediately.

        contact Lankan Diaspora.. Or the LTTE diaspora.. I dont need to They now come in their droves here to Claim There Land deeds. And I dont think they have lost much.. apart from trying to Bribe Tamil officlas here and undermine people who have the same land deeds in Jaffna.. There are enough monuments here for the dead to now the true figures..compared to some of the countries highlighted here.

    The histogram for Sri Lanka may be relevant to the war against terrorists on that single day when abot 400 terrorists were dealt with by SLA a few days before their final stand. It certainly was not a typical day, but a unique one, an exception. It it was typical, then over the 3-years of the final war, the number killed would have 365x3x av 400 = 438,000 which is an impossible and highly exaggerated figure. The total number killed over the 30-years, including civilans, were just a fraction of that figure. Now we know where UNHRC gets their figures. From crazy lunatics who create this sort of nursery school graphics.

      “The total number killed over the 30-years, including civilans, were just a fraction of that figure.”

      How confident are you with your “just a fraction of that figure”?

      Could you state your hypothesis and present us the sample data so that simple people like us could compute the margins of error.

      Please let me know the following:

      Did you use any of the following Dummy Variables to arrive at your conclusion?

      Intercept dummy
      Slope dummy
      Slope and intercept interaction dummy

      excluding yourself.

      Did you notice the presence of Micronumerosity in your estimates?

      I would be grateful for your explanation.

        Hey Vedda dont bull shit me with your statistics; I am not impressed at all. There is a saying in SLK that “panditaya” cannot even cross an “eydanda”. I thought true Veddas have more common sense than you have, the virtual vedda. Work it out yurself with simple arithmetic. Would you like some olinda seeds to do your counting?

          “Would you like some olinda seeds to do your counting?”

          We have plenty of seeds to feed monkies. You can have them when you visit my neighbourhood next time around of course with your friends.

          “Hey Vedda dont bull shit me with your statistics;”

          Let me have the reason how you managed to come to that conclusion? Lets talk statically.

          “I thought true Veddas have more common sense than you have, the virtual vedda.”

          You think you know who the true Veddahs are but I know who the Veddahs are because I am one of them. So please back off.

          “Work it out yurself with simple arithmetic.”

          Please tell me how.

        Anyone with a Brain knows the figures are form socalled NGO’s.. That claim in it self is a fraudulent one as MOST NGOS are hugely government funded and Large donations come from special Interest Groups.. and when you give large amounts of money these groups naturally represent these groups interest.. not just here but in many countries and especially those ones mentioned above.Hence many NGOs dont give out who actually fund them

        native.. are you the one that compiled this figure??? ‘“The total number killed over the 30-years, including civilans, were just a fraction of that figure.” can you pls give us the figures of the war dead during the IPKF??? which the LTTE int groups peddled in th 80’s as more than 80.000 and lets not forget rape, torture, mass graves etc etc…But when the IPKF pulled out these so called atrocities magically disappeared as well. And what about the Eastern Tamils who were with the Karuna faction??? During the CFA the LTTE fought the eastern Tamil and not the SLA.. what happend to the figures then??? and one not this socalled graphic starts jan 09 during which the SLA captured many LTTE territories which didnt have ANY CIVILIANS they were Empty Towns.. and Vast Jungle areas From EP and Mankulum. The forced death march of civilians had already taken place and SLA encounted them and the main LTTE forces in April. So these figures are wronh and cannot be show the this schoolboy presentation graphic has.

          “are you the one that compiled this figure???”

          No.

          “can you pls give us the figures of the war dead during the IPKF???”

          Precisely for these reasons I have been proactively demanding an independent investigation into all war crimes from 5th April 1971 to date. Its a pity you haven’t read my previous comments, please feel free to do so even at this time of the day.

          It is for the state to record all birth and death in this island and if I may allow to add its not my responsibility.

          If you have evidence and data please feel free to write a monograph and submit it to Colombo Telegraph for publication. I am sure CT will oblige.

          Looking forward to reading your comprehensive war crime report in CT.

    When the Judiciary and Law Enforcement is weak this is what happens. It would be nice if someone can show an infographics of political killing, rape, political attacks and above all religious violence.

    So called Sri Lanka Campaign is actually an Anti-Sri Lanka Campaign sponsored by the LTTE rump with the collaboration of the human rights/civil society bandwagon. People who caused mayhem in Sri Lanka and got thousands of innocent people killed for their narrow racist project of Eelam are continuing their efforts to ensure there is no reconciliation or peace even after the war ended. They are working in various levels and through many fronts. Sri Lanka Campaign is their front to spread hate propaganda about developments in Sri Lanka under the guise of doing humanitarian work. In my view this is actually foreign intervention in a “civil” manner.

    What I see here for Sri Lanka is from 1st January 2009 to 18th May 2009, when the war was in it’s most intense period. Only a fool would want to take those figures and calculate for a 30-year period.

      “Statistically will someone show where the Rajapakse & extended family

      sinhalaheritage.org reports that

      (Chines family believed to be descendants of King Parakramabahu VI. The family included Prince Shi Lai Fa, son Shih Chia Hsu daughter Shih Chih Chua and prince Shih Asian Kusn.)

      (The location is Ghyuan Jou (Quang Zhou) where the Chinese government had erected two stone inscriptions to mark the site the ‘Shhy’ (Shi) “Sinhala” royal family had, chosen to live and raise the next generations.)
