Army Wants More Troops In The North After Wiggie’s Prabha Remark

The defence authorities have reacted angrily to remarks by Tamil National Alliance Chief Minister Candidate C.V. Wigneswaran in Velvettaiturai where the former Supreme Court Judge allegedly claimed Velupillai Prabhakaran was a ‘great hero‘.

C.V. Wigneswaran

The commanding officer of the northern province Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe has reportedly asked the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa to increase troop numbers in the area since the statement could result in a regrouping of ex LTTE combatants, a Sinhala language newspaper reported this weekend.

Hathurusinghe and Wigneswaran have crossed swords previously when the ex-Judge questioned why the senior military official was making political statements and criticizing the political candidates.

Wigneswaran’s remarks at Velvattathurai which is also the LTTE Leader Prabhakaran’s birth place have been badly received in other parts of the country.

Critics say the former Justice has been making increasingly Tamil nationalistic speeches on Election platforms.

Meanwhile Prof S. Ratnajeevan H. Hoole wrote last night;” This morning, Sept. 13, the importance of having police who understand us was stressed when 40 youths campaigning for the TNA were arrested in Kodikamam. President Rakapakse in one of his speeches had referred to the LTTE’s V. Prabhakaran as a brave fighter and Wigneswaran had responded in typical election time rhetoric that if the President can call Prabhakaran a Veeran (brave man), then there can be no wrong in others calling him a Maa-Veeran (Great Brave Man). This was reported in the TNA’s newspaper Veedu (House, the symbol of the Federal Party which is used by the TNA). The 40 youths had copies of the newspaper with the story and Prabhakaran’s picture for distribution. The monolingual police assumed that the 40 were LTTE men and arrested them. Thirty six have since been released but it is not known on what charge the remaining four are being held. Indeed it is absurd for the police in a democracy to claim that the mere possession of Prabhakaran’s picture can be used to arrest people.”

    I never expected that someone of Wigneswaran’s calibre would be so unwise and reckless to have glorified Prabaharan as a great hero just before becoming the Chief Minister of Northern Province. I feel that such utterences will make his tasks very difficult to achieve.

      Sooriasegaram,

      Whether you like it or not Prabhakaran is an ever living hero in the hearts and minds of the Tamils and that cannot be erased by anyone. What is wrong in the CM candidate mentioning this statement of fact which need not be construed as a call for taking up arms again!

        Hathura- sinhe is running amok in Jaffna and is scared that his days as military ruler/ occupier /local demi-god of Jaffna will soon be over..

        Hathurusinghe is just like his boss Gota the White Van Goon – running amok. The Sri Lanka army is running amok and needs to be down sized.

        A man with a name like Hathuru- sinhe (enemy) what do you expect – NO RECONCILIATION possible!

          Velupillai Prabaharan is the greatest Hero ever to be born on the Srilankan soil.. Prabaharan is a Legend. Whether Mahinda says it or Mister Vigneshwaren says it, nothing will change the fact that Prabaharan was a great Hero. God bless him.

            “God bless him.”

            Of course he/she did bless him in Mullivaaikkal. Sri Lankan armed forces too wished VP well for winning the war for them.

        That hero worship when egged on by political leaders can lead to devastating consequences. The horrific memory of that devastating worship of Sun God is still burning and alive in the psyche of the rest of the country (where deciples took their final meal with the Sun God before embarking on exploding civilians into pieces).

        The security establishment seeking additional measures in such an environment is understandable and is their professional duty too.

      You must read what judge Wigneswaran said first before jumping to criticise him. He compared how the president referred to the former LTTE leader and said ‘if the President can call Prabhakaran a Veeran (brave man), then there can be no wrong in others calling him a Maa-Veeran (Great Brave Man)’. The place was the heartland of Prabakaran and this is electioneering. It does not matter what TNA or its candidates or MPs say or do the government party will try to exploit to their advantage. What is curious is some Tamils who support UPFA are quick to jumo guns to claim to be whiter than the whitest.

        Bravery doesn’t equate to being a hero. A brave person could be stupid enough to lead his/her followers to destruction like what happened to Tamils in Sri Lanka.

      Mr Sooriyasegaram,
      I know you very well. An associate of corrupted Daglas Devananda who is a slave of Rajapakse regime supplying children as prostitutes. What ever you say to convince Sinhala crime masters, he is the only leader Tamils consider as their sole leader and their hearts and minds are with him. Let keep your army out and ask the Tamil people you will get the same answer as Wigneswaran said. You cannot destroy the facts.

    When the Sinhala politicians can call the genocidal SL Army that killed tens of thousands of Tamil civilians as Heros what is wrong in Tamil politicians calling the Tamil militant leader as a Hero? If the Sinhala Army is Hero for the Sinhalese, then the Tamil militants is Hero for the Tamils.

    The troops are already there in the North, increasing the number is not going to make any big difference.

What you have done for innocent poor tamils’ At least have you given them to a water bottle? I my self helping them to giving books and other school items. some universty students who come from north and east i help them too.

      If you relay want to tamils have a good life help them to stand for them. And Ask Indian (TamilNadu) to stop steel fishes in In the North and East sea of Sri Lanka. Tamil Nadu Fishermen who come to sri Lankan water steel and distroy the sea belong to Tamils who live in Noth and East of Sri Lanka. Did you do any thing for it,

        Its true Northern Tamil people need peace and dignity. This is why it is important that Sinhala army that threatens peace and harmony in the North should leave North East. If you don’t know the North keep quite. The people live in the North are close blood relatives of those escaped from the Military onslaught. It is not the Sinhala government gave livelihood to Northerners. You blocked the food supply to the North and you destroyed their homes. Let them be in peace.

    Placing less or more troops in the North in times of peace, ideally and even legally, should be the prerogative of the State and not of
    Army officials sharing disputed perspectives with political candidates.
    Has the Govt jettisoned its role and responsibility to trigger-happy and communalistic men in uniform? Or is the regime, facing clear loss of face with an imminent drubbing, spoiling for some form of a “major incidence”? One easy way out could be to set-up an “accident” by which Justice Vigneswaren is removed from the scene. The regime has considerable experience here – going by what happened to Siripathi Sooriyaratchi and many others.

      ‘History’ after the War:

      Historical Consciousness in the Collective Sinhala-Buddhist Psyche in Post-War Sri Lanka

        Dear NV,

        Tku for the attachment. Following comments from Dr. Dewasiri
        tells it all :-

        …”In this view, any meaningful reconciliation process must aim at defeating Tamil nationalism. Any positive approach towards the political demands of Tamil nationalism is to be categorically denied…”

        Where is the meeting point? Tamil Nationalism is in the mind and is an emotional factor. Physically eliminating Tamils and harming them is not the way to go (as the British finally decided in respect of undivided India in 1945/47).It manifested during post-1956 and with almost every decade of heaped up injustice grew and divided the two Nations until it exploded in the 1990s – unattended and unengaged. “The defeating Tamil nationalism” project continues, much more marked today I dare say, with the army leading the charge on a civilian Tamil Nation. The Rajapakses are taking us closer to Separation while they have all the facilities, position and advantages to take us AWAY from that horrible dream.

    How wisely it was said that war is too serious a matter to be left to generals. In a no war situation, their duty is confined to maintaining peace. Internal security devolves on civilian governance and the Police are charged with that responsibility under the direction of civilian rule.It is those in political command, whose views and diktats have to prevail. They have authority both overriding and unfettered.

    In the hierarchy of governance and of administration, the Army Commander is a head of department. This officer is not even a deputy head of department.Has this man holding brief authority in a Peninsula grown so big as to dictate policy to the Government? When General MacArthur was divested of his command by President Truman, a civilian, the General became just another American citizen. It is unwise for a public servant not to be reticent.

    Why does Prabhakaran’s name create panic in the army top-brass?
    Is Hathurusinghe having nightmares?
    He should be reassured that Prabhakaran is dead – executed on surrender by the army – along with his family members – which cremated his body on the battlefield – the rank & file saw it.

    Why making a big issue on this comment? Isn’t Saradiel of Uthuwankanda not a hero? Was not “Cheena” of Hara Lakse Mankollaya (Four Lakhs Robbery) who escaped from prison five times not a hero? Isn’t Rohana Wijeweera a hero for JVP politicians? Karuna and K.P are also heroes in a different sense.If Keppetipola and Puran Appu are heroes for Sinhalese, why not Velupillai a hero for some Tamils. Once there was a view that Velupillai was the greatest hero produced by Tamil history.
    Ther was also a view that Prabha was immortal.

    Saradiel was not a hero for British colonialists but those who captured him and police constable ( a Muslim gentleman ) who died in the cross fire was the hero.

    If Vignesh believes that Prabja is a hero, let him believe but for Sinhalase Sarath Fonseka was the hero? who else ?

    According to the latest communique from the front Man Suren Surendran of the Global Tamil Forum lead by British Tiger proy Reverend Emmanuel,TNA is now in their “bag”.

    He says the GTF has already given the TNA special status and recognition among their matey Western Governments.

    Mr Surendran oalso demand that the Northern Tamils living in the other parts of the Island go to Jaffna and vote for the TNA.

    It is the same GTF and the same Reverend who chased away the Srilankan President who came to visit the British Diaspora woith an Olive branch.

    Forty TNA activists were caught with leaflets with Prabakaran’s photo, praising him as a hero.

    Were the these leaflets or “TNA how to vote cards” carried this Vellala CM aspirant Mr Vigneswaran’s message to the ex captivesand ex LTTE members?.

    Mr Vigneswaran the aspiring CM has already demanded that the Army must be confined to the Barracks.

    Can the leaders of these poor soldiers wait until the new Tigers knock on their doors accompanied by the TNA activists?.

    Isn’t it the duty of the Govt to not only protect the lives of the Soldiers but also the poor Tamil inhabitants who may vote for Non Vellala Candicates or their nominees?.

      KA Sumanaasekera,

      Is it is safer for all the soldiers serve near their familes? Why should they be deployed far away from their families and wives and children? They are there to electioneer for the government, even the ex-commander -Viceroy – Chadrasiri doesn’t know he, as a civil servant should not get involved in supporting UPFA candidates which was admitted as wrong by Keheliya – Daiy Mrror.

      If TNA does anything illegal they can be prosecuted instead of threatening and frightening. If this is a democratic country then people have the freedom to hold n to any picture or speak or read anything they want.

      If the army that speaks only an alien language in the sense that people don’t understand and indulge is ill treatment or persecution people will turn against them.

      The police even that is also from the Sinhalese community can deal with any crime otherwise the UN will get involved in sorting out our problems. You can see Arab countries and Pakistan where the army does involve in civilian activities with unstable governments and culture of military coup.

But innocent tamils they don’t want tehme. They want to stop fishermen who steel fish in Sri Lankan water.

    Our General public and Media should understand that our Sri Rohana Manaranjana, 3 Sinhaladeeshwara, Saddrmadveepa Chakrawarthi and his Family can say anything that they wish and do what ever they wants and nobody should talk about that.

    Chakrawarthi can say that Prabakaran was a Good Fighter, no body will say that he is a LTTE supporter. If another one says what chakrawarthi says he will become a “Kotiya”

    Yohitha Rajapaksha can do Politics while in the Armed Forces, but Gen. Fonseka found guilty by the same offence by the Army Panel.

    Basil Rajapaksha MP from Gampaha, but he is not a registered voter in Gampaha district. Nothing wrong in that but Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi says Hon. Vigneshwaran is not a registered Voter in Jaffna and make a big issue with that.

      Lapatiya,

      This bloody bastard rogue family, Rajapakshas, and the pimps like Hathurusinghe who are licking their posteriors have no brains and are mentally retards genetically! Wiggie just made a fleeting remark on VP to garner populist and racial-prone Tamil votes. Look at the Rajapaksha idiots and military assholes! MARA rushed to Jaffna and began haranguing and weeping about Wiggie not having vote in Jaffna, that Jaffna people couldn’t find a local candidate and he feels very sorry for it bla.bla.bla!!! The military assholes are sweating, shitting and calling for more troops!!! What a herd of buffaloes do we have at the top of administration and security! MARA is hiding all the LTTE bastards like KP, Karuna, Pillayan… under his sarong but that is fine! Nary a word is spoken against it! These monkeys do not understand that in the same way racist Sinhalese consider MARA and the Sinhalese Army to be heroes, so too are the Tamils who would have no qualms about deityfying VP around whom they tried to build their own empire. Only a buffalo brained politician would try to be at war with these various forms of racist mentalities of uninformed general public. In fact it is the politicians who have made people think that way! True professional and wise politicians would handle these urges more tactfully and would migrate and transform those sentiments into generalized and overarching ‘nation’ conceptualization. This bloody idiot Rajapaksha regime is like a ‘bathing well’ in the village where gossiping women gather and unwrap all the thrash for consumption until their washing is over! Add to this that wedge pulling monkey Modawansa who will always get his testicles squeezed between political logs and there you have the ideal election time nationalistic brawl!

    Both Wijeweera – the slain JVP leader – and Pirabhaharan – the slain LTTE leader- are people who made the supreme sacrifice for the causes they passionately believed in. So, if the JVP can freely glorify and commemorate Wijeweera, then what’s wrong with the Tamil nationalists doing the same with the memory of Pirabharan? Paradoxically, both of them were extra-judicially killed, subsequent to their capture, by the tax payer-maintained security forces of Sri Lanka who are a law unto themselves.

      Dear Bandula,

      I will take you as a Sinhala brother and thank for your liberal
      thoughts. I detest the violence of both Wijeweera and Prabakaran. But their memories remain to be remembered – and even suitably respected –
      for they dared what many would not dream of. They risked their lives
      and all to change what they saw as uncaring and unjust society. They did not merely dream. They dared. It is, I humbly believe, of such mean leaders are made of. How one wishes they had the wisdom and foresight of the revered Gandhi and Mandela to change society along more peaceful means; to change the perception of the societies to which they belonged – to the better and more humane with less blood and mayhem.

      Honouring Wijeweera, despite many of his excesses, is understandable.
      Insulting the memory of Prabakaran sacrificing the lives of dogs, throwing human faeces, is decidedly not.

        Sorry Seguttuvan, I cannot agree. Anyone who takes a life is not a hero to me, whether Prabhakaran, Wijeweera or those in the armed services. A hero cannot be a murderer, whatever the compelling cause.

        Though Senguttu lives among us in Colombo, I always felt from his writing that he is either a fully pledged tiger or a card carrying apologist. He is a typical hypocritical human being. Such people live in the south among Sinhala for which we do not object but they want north to be Tamil bantu land for which we object vehemently.

          I am no apologist for Senguttuvan, there is no need for him to be an apologist for anyone.

          This island once belonged to my ancestors. Now the island is being transformed into a complete Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto, which should not be allowed to sit in the Indian ocean. You can have as many ghettos as you like in your ancestral homeland India. The ideal region is South India whence most of your ancestors came.

      How do u say Prabha was extra judicially killed? If u remember there was a war, and JVP does not go against the state.
      They were a bunch of terrorists but JVP is now within the democratic framework and do not/never question SL soveregnity. JVP and LTTE cannot be compared.

    Hon Velupillai Prabaharan is a brave Hero whether Mahinda Rajapaksa admits it or not! , Prabaharan is one of the bravest and the greatest hero/ Militant leader/ the world has come across. The Srilankan government couldn’t even touch him for more than 30 years even with the help from countries like USA, China, India or Pakistan. SL army is nothing compared to the powerful almighty Tamil Tigers. LTTE rebels were even clever enough to make their own fire arms, artillery weapons and Military aircrafts, but what did The Srilankan Army do? Srilanka Army begged from the world for everything. Shame on the disgraceful Srilankan government! Im proud to be a Tamilan and I will always praise Hon Velupillai Prabaharan.

      VP was smart all along until he was coaxed by the Americans and the Indians to bury all the heavy artillery, then abandon their stronghold Kilinochchi and get to the Beachfront to surrender, promising VP a way out and offering Devolution to the Northeast, only to be massacred by the Forces. This game plan by the Americans and the Indians enabled MR to become a False War Victor even to incarcerate SF when he challenged MR.

        This bugger gaminiya is hallucinating as always has been. Bugger deliberately forgets that the megalomaniac Pirapakaran and his cowardice gang kept unwilling civilians as a shield in front of them whenever they attacked SL forces. This bugger conveniently forgets that terrorists walked in to a trap when they mingled with civilians and walked into the demarcated no fire zone to save their lives.

        Americans and their lap dogs, stooges, NGOs and et al did everything in their power to rescue the terrorists who were trapped in the no fire zone. American aim was to save the leaders of the terrorists gang so that they can use the terrorists later on in their global projects. With or without Pirapakaran, geo-political aim of the neo-cons is to divide Sri Lanka. Stupid bugger gaminiya thinks neo-cons gave the war victory to Rajapakses in a platter.

        This buggers thinks real war victors are ranil-gala, man-gala and other galas. Fortunately, vast majority voters in Sri Lanka are much more abreast with what has happened than those that live in the cold damp basements.

          No one cares whether you are a Muslim or not. So you believe MR defied the Americans to do as he pleased, thinking they tried to save VP? Good for your pin head brain. What a powerful man MR must be to go against the world order yet receive American help not only to annihilate VP and the LTTE, but when MR had to seek medical aid and he had to go to the US, Richard Armitage had to come here in secret to assure that everything was in order for MR to visit the US, when a case w2as filed in a Court in America. You Dumbes see what they will do to MR by this time next year. It is not only VP that got fooled and paid with his life but there are a few more to follow suit.

            To add to the above, you claim that the LTTE held the Tamil civilians as a Human Shield. For your information according to estimates the number of all who were confined to Kilinochchi was around three hundred and ninety thousand, that later moved to Puthukudiirippu. From Puthukudiirippu a civilian population of around three hundred and fifty thousand came to the govt forces control, wading the lagoon. It was the balance remaining forty thousand that was massacred by the Forces when they tried to surrender. So where is the Human Shield? This civilian escape could have taken place from Kilinochchi itself. The only problem then, is that the forces would not have been able to attack the forty thousand or so LTTE cadre that remained as they had the bunkers and the buried weapons and would have resulted in a real fight. So those responsible lured the whole lot out from Kilinochchi to the beach front where they had no escape.

              Gamini, 390000 civilians left and arrived only 350000. So the civilian deaths is 40000. How much would be the total deaths when the LTTE surrendering fighters counted?

          I am no muslim,

          Who cares what[Edited out] you are or what pig farm you are from!

          “..Pirapakaran and his cowardice gang kept unwilling civilians as a shield in front of them whenever they attacked SL forces..”

          Unlike you barren brained monkeys and equally retarded Rajapakshas, LTTE possessed an advanced terrorist warfare knowledge and experience. They were conversant with political and tactical maneuvers as well. The cardinal mistake they made was killing Rajiv. The other mistake they did was being hoodwinked by Ranil to signing the peace accord. Instead of Ranil, had MARA been there at that time, they would have already created Elam because the whole world opinion was so overwhelmingly in favour of the LTTE and Tamils! It is the Rajiv killing that antagonized Indian sentiments against Tigers and it is Ranil’s peace accord that proved to the world that the Tiger was not so ‘pious’! 9/11 attack and resultant and subsequent world’s revulsion against terrorism played ancillary roles in eradicating terrorism.

          If as you mongol claims, LTTE had used civilians as human shields and thereby obtained protection from SL forces’ assaults, what arithmetic make them give up battle, mingle with civilians and walk out to the no fire zone, fully well knowingly, to be massacred by the SL forces? You bloody fool chirp about ‘cold damp basements’ but throw in the most stupid claims about war! LTTE would rather die in the battle field or suicide mission than surrendering to SL forces-that was what meant by the cyanide capsule! They would rather perish together with the ‘civilian shield’ than to surrender to the enemy. Why had they buried huge stocks of arms and ammunitions? In which world is a war waged while the weapons of attack and protection remain buried? This is Madamoolana war theory and not of any scientific terrorist! You may be ‘hitting’ your better-half with your peanuts, hiding the rod between the legs, but not LTTE. Some plan and assurance must have made them give up arms and surrender as Gamini says because no fight and mere surrender means loss of battle and shattering of their dream of 30 years-betrayal of the Tamil nation too! Something geostrategic surely must have happened. India might have thought: well, sure, the LTTE is the bastard we created but it has already proved out of control through Rajiv saga, if LTTE wins we would contract a native mode cancer drawing life, recognition and protection from Tamilnadu, land, country recognition and sovereignty from ELAM in SL and ultimately UN would recognize ELAM as an independent country-an ideal concoct for incurable geopolitical headache that could develop into a terminal case! On the other hand USA has their own geopolitical concerns like China, Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Korea, Afgan etc. Among the possibilities and combinations is the scenario of India joining Sino fold! So USA and India for their own strategic interests listed here or failed to be perceived yet by the writer, may have concluded: “alright, enough is enough, let us finish LTTE through Rjapakshas, put the blame on them and thereby control Rajapakshas to fulfill our strategic needs and wash our hands! Ever since, US and India provided military intelligence, military training, facilities and mediation to eradicate LTTE! India conceded their air space to fly air offensives towards LTTE targets, LTTE arms shipments were destroyed together with the logistics in the middle of the sea, Thamil Selvam was pinpointed and killed by air to ground assault etc. all of which wouldn’t have materialized from SL capabilities alone! SL has no satellite technology to pinpoint Tamilselvam hence some outside agency must have helped!

          So this Rajapaksha ‘mang pora’ talk is just bullshit aimed at catering to the brainless assholes in the country like ‘I am no muslim’ (who cares?) to garner votes! The real fact is that the Rajapaksha buffaloes have rendered this country a rogue state earning the shame and despise in the eyes of the civilized word. That is why they are running after Swaziland, Sudan and Seashells etc. where the tin pot dictators live and rule! Quite in contrast to the half-baked pig shit I am no muslim has written by now most of the people in the country have now realized the real ill-bred and low-caste nature an rogue genes of Rajapakshas. That is why they are afraid to hold total elections in the country. Though this I am no muslim bastard ejects premature orgasms about coming election results, MARA is hell afraid of elections now! From the very start too he was! That is why the bugger is holding one election here, another there, the other after 12 months after like a third class teledrama! If he is the popular bugger the muslim bugger claims to be let him hold an island wide election!

          With the results of the Northern Province we all shall see the way the Rajapaksha cardboard hero and the ‘galquarry army’ running around to save their assholes! An irreversible and ‘halal’ foundation will be laid reflecting the aspirations, rights and demands of the Tamil people in the North which will be the foundation in any future dealings with the Rajapakshas Sinhala South. This victory will also migrate to the official version of the UN about Sri Lanka and its Tamils and minorities. Guess what will happen to the king Kong ‘patriots’! You I am no muslim fool, can you escape from it? Can you deny their rights? Can you cling on to Modawansa’s choonpan hegemonic assertion? What about all the Tigers like KP that you have been hiding between your legs yet pasting Tiger label to Ranil? You stupid bastard, are you the type of ‘warriors’ who are going to protect this country?

        So typical a notion and sentiment of two-weeks-memoried Sinhalese fools who have now entered the quasi 45-day broiler life-cycle-the regime grows, the regime cooks, the regime spoons and they eat, thinking they owe everything to Rajapakshas!

        What about India’s and America’s geopolitics, economics and strategies who have spoon-fed, nurtured, trained and programmed the tiger and then ultimately assisted and guided SL to destroy it causing untold amount of killings? What is the Indo-American next move and strategy? Is it the creation of the Sri Lankan Spring so that, like in the Arab Spring, the people would create the Rajapaksha juggernaut dictator as their ‘national pride companion’ and then after its metamorphosis into a tin-pot dictator would fight it for years thus running the country into stone age?

          Noba,
          Americans and their lap dogs, stooges, NGOs have done everything they could to introduce ‘Arab Spring’ to Sri Lanka. They failed miserably because the majority by far in Sri Lanka know the current status of those countries that had ‘Arab Springs’. People in Ssri Lanka have radios, tvs and pcs. They all hear what’s going on in Syria, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen and etc. They know Yankees are very selective in their backing ‘Arab Springs’. They know Yankees back the minority government in Bahrain to suppress the ‘Arab Spring’ there. To you anti-nationals, separatists and their apologists, Rajapakse may be a dictator but not to the majority of Sri Lankans. You will see that from results of this election.

But USA achieved it goad without firing a single bullet! Now your pen pals Syria and Russia are handing over Chemical weapons to USA for safekeeping! Former Yugoslavia demolished-by whom? Iraq effaced, Libya’s Gaddafi dragged out of a ditch like an iguana and shot like an astray dog. Who can do these things?

            You haven’t got fucking nails to scratch your ass and remove the lousy louse sucking your juice from the ass but you never fail to challenge the mightiest-so typical of your uneducated cardboard hero Rajapakshas!

            What bloody reading of newspapers and watching TVs! The bloody mutts in Sri Lanka are all like you-no knowledge of anything at all except conceit, deceit, arrogance, ignorance and greediness. Throw them a rice packet, a bottle of arrack and Rs. 500/-; 90% of them would line after you and raise their sarongs and closths! What to do to them depends on your mood and taste!

            The only way this country can evade such a catastrophy is first to free the country from the Madamulana uneducated uncultured bastards and then to form a government that upholds law and order and values of civilized world and not the values of Russia, China, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Eretria, Libya, Swaziland etc. who are the best friends and consultants of your uneducated rulers!

    He is also scared of Gota and Mahinda.If UPFA fails they are going to get Hathuru and Chandrasiri.

    Too late.Or– the defense is capable of having a bomb thrown and say it done by the LTTE uprising and call of the election.

    President Rajapakse became a President only because he paid money to Prabaharan and Prabaharan in return asked the Tamils not to vote at the Presidential election.

    What Prabharan should be admired for is for being able to stand up against the discrimination that his community suffered. Unfortunately the human rights abuses that he engaged in to achieve his goals has tarnished his aspirations to greatness.

    Sri Lanka needs more people like him to stand up for their rights in order to preserve democracy. Rajapakse was right in saying that Prabhakaran was a brave man.
