Dog Will Not Bite Dog In Sri Lanka

By Suranimala Umagiliya

On the 8th of January 2009, Lasantha Wickrematunge, the intrepid Editor of The Sunday Leader was murdered in a well planned attack within a high security zone. Before the ink could dry on the reams of newsprint written on that murder, a copycat style attack was carried out on Upali Tennekoon, the Editor of Rivira newspaper. It was on the 23rd of January 2009 the attackers waylaid his vehicle when Upali Tennekoon and his wife were driving towards Colombo. Tennekoon left Sri Lanka for awhile only to return to an identification parade where he identified Army Intelligence officer Udulagama as one of the assailants. Udulagama was also identified by Dias for abducting him. Dias was Lasantha Wickrematunge’s driver.

Lasantha

Upali Tennekoon was the Editor of Rivira newspaper which at the time was owned by two Rajapaksa acolytes, namely Nilanka Rajapaksha and Prasanna Wickramasuriya. Wickramasuriya is the brother of former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the US Jaliya Wickremasuriya and a cousin of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.It was widely believed that Upali Tennekoon was attacked to misdirect people that even Rajapaksa friendly newspaper editors were being attacked. The intent was not to kill the Rivira editor. The murder of Lasantha, attack on Upali and the abduction of Keith Noyahr ( 2008 ), were handed over to Gotabaya’s bunny DIG Chandra Wakista of the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID). Intent was clear. Show it as an LTTE job.

The Criminal Investigations Department took over the investigations into these crimes after the defeat of Mahiinda Rajapaksa and the real story unfurled backed by credible evidence. A rogue unit at the Tripoli Market run by Gotabaya Rajapaksa together with former Army Intel Chief Kapila Hendawitharne, Gen Amal Karunasekera and Major Bulathwatte were suspected to be the prime movers of these crimes. Evidence in Keith Noyahr’s case reported to Court by CID indicate this fact. The Tripoli Unit is widely known to have carried out Lasantha murder, Keith Noyahr abduction and torture as well as Upali Tennekoon assault.

Initially eight suspects from the very Tripoli Camp were arrested, finger printed and remanded. They were later enlarged on bail. Finger prints found on the late Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge’s car on the day of the murder, prints on the vehicle of Upali Tennekoon were sent to the expert Examiner of finger print division of the Police. Though no matches were found to the prints on Lasantha’s vehicle a print on Upali Tennekoon’s vehicle found a match with that of Corporal Lalith Rajapaksa an Army Intelligence Officer who at the time of these crimes was assigned to the Tripoli Unit. Corporal Lalith Rajapaksa was posted to the Sri Lanka Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany on the instructions of Gotabaya Rajapaksa in 2013 and returned only in 2017. As expected he has denied knowledge as to how his print came to be on Upali Tennekoon’s vehical. Finger prints are unique and no two persons prints match.

Upali

Colombo Telegraph reliably understands from a retired CID Official, that Corporal Rajapaksa was retained in Frankfurt despite the Rajapaksa Government being defeated in 2015, at the insistence of now resigned Chief of Intelligence former DIG CID Sisira Mendis.

Colombo Telegraph also learns from the same source that the finger prints were taken at the time of initial arrest but the match with Corporal Lalith Rajapaksa has been reported to Court after a long lapse of time. The Attorney General Dappula Livera’s advise to the CID to arrest Corporal Rajapaksa though late was welcome news.

The Yahapalanaya Government has been in office for well nigh four years. The evidence into these crimes have been reported to Court and therefore has been on public record. Newspapers and electronic media have time and again reported from these records. There has been a perceived delay by the Yahapalanaya Government to bring the criminals involved in these cases to court. In Sri lanka, dog does not bite dog.

Presidential elections are to be held shortly and it is a well known fact that President Sirisena would like to front up with the Rajapaksa’s for a second term. Given his proclivities in recent times the Rajapaksa camp seemingly, unlike Barkis, is not willing. There has been a flurry of activity recently, in bringing forward the cases that have been pending against the Rajapaksa cabal.

Is this an act of twisting the arm? Or will dog bite dog finally?

      nalmen,
      As I said before, the most likely scenario is “twisting arms” MY 3 team to force SLPP to offer presidential candidacy to MY 3 and make partnership with SLFP under SLFP’s terms. Even though going after long overdue MaRa/GoRa crimes is a welcoming development, if the motive is political, then it is extremely unrealistic to expect honest justice to prevail. That is b’cos of the strong likely hood of seeking justice being pushed under the carpet once the political goal is accomplished. The delay of arresting culprits has already proved how successful MaRa/GoRa team was in covering up the crimes with help of top guys in the bureaucracy appointed during their regime.

      The most important & disappointing fact is the politicization of the bureaucracy then has not changed. The presence of SLFP who still had loyalty MaRa may have contributed significantly to this sad situation. And yet, MY 3 who came to power on the promise of undoing MaRa’s abuse of power, allowed this to happen is the biggest tragedy. The complicity of previous minister of justice Vijedasa R in delaying and/or negating justice also should not be under estimated. His ties to Gora via Avent Garde is very clear now.

      Most of this malpractices by highly placed bureaucrats & politicians could have been uncovered if SL media is not corrupt. It is the role of the media to help voters to find social, political & business relation of politicians not just once they are in office but also during their candidacy so that the public can make educated decision in the ballot box. But, SL media do exactly opposite instead. That is b’cos media owners themselves are part of the corruption network. That is why they keep attacking good guys!

      Majority of lankens are rural people:
      :
      Most of them would believe anything when being found in the air, even if they would have been asked to EAT cowdung instead of rice and curry for some gains, they would do at once.
      Why I ve been telling this is, until shortly, that WALAMPURI man Kirthi Dhisanayaka, was held a WONDER maker for Rajaapakshes and even to Sirisena. Anyways, BP Valampoori Fake professor got caught by horns few months ago. Since then people that went after for purchase of Walampoori for various prices ( 30 k to 5 lacks of rupees or so) were stopped. The bugger is imprisoned. His so called PALACEs and Buildings built during the last 8 years were confiscated. All is now clear.
      But what I ve been saying, our people are the most vulnerable to any stupid men. It is just they believe any fairy tales bieng explained to them.
      Today, no matter, Thadjudeen or others were killed or gunned down, VERY SAME peole seem to be not questioning as to WHY Rajakashes were not caught by th elaw.
      In a country, people, the majority should go on protest marches if the justice is being not served.
      It was A MUSLIM young man, was killed by them, Thajdudeen your name would never be died down, I have no doubt, BP Rajapakshes SON Yoshitha will ahve to get caught for this and other high crimes bp to have committed during the high days of Father BP.

        Agree with you 100%.✅
        Our people swallow any bullshit they hear hook line and sinker blindly.
        They use the heart instead of the brain to judge the validity of information.
        We have to find out why this is so. It is then we can find a solution.
        I think one of the main reasons most of our people are so gullible is because all their information is fed to them through our sinhala media channels and the people are not able to independently verify the authenticity of information from third party sources because of the language barrier.
        As we know, the Colombo crowd often have a very different overview on issues, since they are english savvy.
        Secondly as you have said quite correctly, most of us are rural dwellers, so we are like frogs in a well, we are unable to improve our outlook through interaction. All the people we interact are also in the same boat like us in the rural setting.
        Influence of religious sentiment whereby westernization is frowned upon by our village monks, hence forcing us to remain caged in archaic mindset. It must be noted that ironically Buddhism is a religion that actually encourages Buddhist to open their minds and think and reason. Move on progressively instead of hanging onto eveything including our mindset with greed.
        I think the government wants us to be frogs in a well, it’s easier to deceive and control us that way. After all it’s the citizens that is the major factor of production. As long as we keep quiet, point fingers in the wrong direction and slog like hell with life and produce an output everything is fine and dandy. Why would anyone want to change the system.
        Would you want a buffalo or a donkey to get clever. He will not work for you anymore.

          Thanks for your response to my Previous post.
          :
          I dont live in SL, so I cant know the ground realities. However, what I feel is, people stay gullible and easy pray because the LOCAL media mislead them from dawn to dusk.
          Just imagine, yet today, people would not easily change their CONDITIONED mind about the following two incidents, that I may take from recent news items
          1) Easter sunday- Bombing saga
          those who got killed were innocient prayers that usually joined their prayers. We the ones sometimes with little brains would know that all precautionary steps were taken by the order of minister of defence, at least the number of people got killed could be avoided. We also know as revealing in the PARLIMANET COMMITTEE investigations, that neither of the two (Defence secretary, IGP) should be blamed for not having done the due, but the president himself. It revealed that President is the person to have abused his powers not allowing usual invitees to the committee, breaking the security council committee holding traditions.
          It was just becasue the BUGGER president never thought that NATIONAL security should be kept above anything else.
          :
          2)Dr Safi ‘s so called surgeries allegedly making some SINHALA women lifelong infertile
          .
          Local media spread it without focusing on any evidences, that Dr Safi to have touched the PALOPIAN tubes of each and every female patients he treated as if he was not the only PERSON to have been in that medical panel for the performance of the surgery. This is a FAIRY TALE to the eyes also for the doctors of a tribal nation in Africa, because such surgeries would not be performed by a single doc.

          Not the govt alone but there are lot more various hidden forces in the country that would not allow TRUTHs be part of the society. This should not be underestimated.
          I wish if any apolitical leader would have been the next leader but I am not optimistic about him being that successful within shorter period of time even if his ideas already set would have been noble.
          Law and order alone cant change a system, so long cultural forces converge to stand against any new systems.
          Lankens culture is based on supertitous assumptions. Please check the link below, VALAMPOORI man is caught, but the blank is being filled by Ganga Maniyo, who is said to have wonder making talents inherited from her families to be able to predict the future of lanka…. see ?
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiKCWMduURA&lc=z224i5nrmwucyr1l0acdp43afsrnxweflnmbjoajzxlw03c010c-

          Political traditions and media work together NOT introducing LONG AWAITING laws based on MEDIA ethics since those politicians would not be able to without acts being applied on the fooling of the nation.
          So long PEOPLE would believe ASTROLOGY and other SORCERY tricks above anything else grabing their VOTEs would NOT be that difficult.

            Sure there are hidden forces at work. But the government is elected through a democratic process to represent the interest of the public.
            That doesn’t happen in Sri Lanka, instead the government spearhead and connives with those hidden forces as I feel.
            The hidden forces within our country are mainly businessmen, so businessmen influence the politicians and the media, politicians then influence the clergy and the justice system, the clergy then influence the public the judiciary influence the police etc. This is the mechanism.
            At the end of the day the common man is used indirectly to leverage the cause of some stupid idiot who stands to gain from all the chaos.
            In Sri Lanka the system has become a bit confusing since the businessmen are the politicians and they control the media as well, example Mara and Co..
            So they are the beneficiaries of chaos.
            By and large this system prevails due to our inability to access facts. Facts that we can compare with what we are generally being fed by our media machinary on a daily basis due to our handicap with English, hence an average Sri Lankan thinks that Sri Lanka is the centre of the world. The world revolves around us. The Sinhalese buddhist are the biggest force in the world since we are majority here. What we think and feel is absolute. Mind you what we think is what we are being told to think!
            This is something that we brought upon ourselves. We choose Sinhala only!
            We shot ourselves in the foot. How stupid can we be.

              Did you listen to what PM Pakistan added to Oxford union session lately ? Even if the literacy rates are high in SL, more or less the situation with AVERAGE mind bearers are the same in SL, India and other neigbouring south asian countries. If Vietnam could raise their head palpably after a long war, why srilankens be that lagged NOT being able to get passed even tiny reforms to the prevailing systems, be it law, education, health secotor or any other fields, unlike Europeans, lankens would take years. Just imagine the issue with 19 Amendment, now with various people becoming against it, including the first citizen the one who got that passed too, but what moves ahead is nothign to my eye.
              It is just simple, our people and their mind set would always get distracted by pessimistic side of whatever being the issue. Well this has lot to do with LANKEN culture. Today, those who go after ASTRLOGERS even if their predictions would end up in all doubts, would never give a chance CANCER patients to react timely and save their lives or at least few more years with their lives.
              That BP from RAVANA or the like, saying GODA Wedakama would have done it better, .. the gulliable are being misled. And there are also new kind of Galthana or Hagediya promoters mushrooming these days, going by KALADUTU kala wala ihaganna principle.
              Buddhism is said to be the religion of majority, but most not being able to respect the 5 precepts. What more talks you would expect the kind of silly people ?
              Just check underneath-comments being posted to YT videos and their mentality. Most of them being out of COUNTRIES abuse their mouth to all low levels. They dont care about the respect and dignity of life.
              What do MEDIA do against those POSTs ? Nothing right ?

              Democracies of our nature would never be equal to real democracies in Europe. Just for getting elected process only lankens are used to use the ELECTION regulations. Just imagine BP Sirisena, today being on his head, not being able to govern going by rules, what has been doing, as forme, he should better be driven to a butchery place, so that we can t hear from the guy again. THe size of betrayals the man has been doing is not even comparable to that of a tribal leader of far poor country. I think people should go and stone this man, if the law and order would not leave space to do the due.

                  Anyways, MEDIA and their misleading should stop, if we want rank and file to be better aware about the ground realities.

    I can understand Sirisena behaving like a dog, as he was roaming around the paddy fields of Polonnaruwa during his formative years. But what about Ranil Wickremasinghe, who was educated at Royal College and has a law degree? Why does he behave like a dog? He is also not at all pro-active in bringing the criminals to justice.

      “Nothing will happen”.
      Considering the following facts.
      1) The simultaneous bombing of Christian churches and luxury
      hotels housing Western tourists.
      2) The retaliatory follow up attack on Muslim businesses and
      residences by Sinhalese mobs.No effort taken by
      government or police to prevent damage to their life or property.
      3) The witch hunt launched by Sinhala media against Muslims
      assisted by the Buddhist Sangha the SLPP and other
      assorted racist side kicks.
      4) The AG complying with the Presidential order to initiate
      proceedings against Gynaecologist- OBS. Dr.Kurunegala Hospital
      and denying him bail despite finding NO evidence
      following investigation by the CID.
      This is just a ploy by the governmental authorities headed by the SB’s to keep up tensions and justify the need to keep Emergency Regulations on.

        *3)
        Even supposing that militant Islamist had bombed Catholic Churches and luxury hotels hosting Western holidaymakers what was the reason for the Sinhala Buddhists to launch retaliatory attacks subsequently against Muslim businesses and residents in the West and the upcountry parts of the island, when no Sinhala Buddhists or any of their businesses suffered any harm loss or damage?

        It is the PTA,and Emergency Regulations that have kept the SInhala Buddhist establishment to subjugate and control the minorities and their own people for over a quarter century and who are not of their faith and culture from the time that imperial Britain released it’s iron grip on the island country.
        It is only when the common Sinhalese people are able to realise that they too are imprisoned in a cul-de-sac, that
        they too will join hand with the rest to wrest free from those who use the miasma of religion and race to hold in bondage and seek freedom with the rest of the minorities.

      I agree. However, one important fact is missing. That is the recent revelation that Kapila Hendawitharane has been a Chinese mole. Since China take extra measures including harassing dissent & keeping heavy lid on media to keep news under strict control, it is possible that China played a key role in MaRa/GoRa’s infamous “White Van” culture. Almost all the China friendly African nations have been able to sustain power for generations by employing this kind of brutality against dissent of all kinds. Therefore, it is reasonable to make an educated guess that China encouraged MaRa/GoRa to engage in HR violations as assured mean to stay in power.

    For most of us, our dogs are like family, we watch them grow, train them, feed them, and take care of them. We expect other dog owners to treat their pets just as well, obeying the state’s leash laws to keep their own dog, as well as others, safe.

    Unfortunately, there are times when this doesn’t happen. Sometimes aggressive dogs can attack other dogs – or even people – causing serious injury and incurring expensive medical bills. Thus is the situation that WAS in Sri Lanka.
    Whilst I do not see eye-to-eye on Suranimala’s title for this article, the content fairly reflects upon the phrase that ” Dog Will Not Bite Dog”, whilst we can argue whether it it in Sri Lanka , or in the UK at present with Bo_Jo ( Boris Johnson), in his perceived effort to become the Prime Minister of England.
    Lest the title, my arguments re. contents will be forwarded in a separate article.

    Lanka ruled by politicians who are Dogs, governed by Dogs, with Dogs, for Dogs.
    These Dogs are a rare pariah breed, all rabid, cannot be tamed, very dangerous if bitten by one or many and only can be done away with by being put down.
    Warning !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! stay away from them and avoid like the plague.
    If opportunity arises do not hesitate to bash on head till dead.

    Suranimala Umagiliya {“Dog Will Not Bite Dog In Sri Lanka”}
    There are two breeds of dogs and bitches in SL. The ones seen on the streets, 99%, are layLankan dogs also known as the kitchen-pointers. These do not bite each other.
    There are the special breeds, some flown all the way from Swiss, owned by the rich and the nouveau riche. These are dangerous: These not only tear each other, they eat the loser.
    Unfortunately some kitchen pointers have been lured into ‘Contract-killing’ business.
    .
    Sorry Suranimala the title is correct most of the time but not always.

    The sad truth is that law and order in Sri Lanka is a bloody joke.
    The leaders are toying around with our intelligence like the citizens are children.
    To a large extent that is true, most of our citizens are lead by feelings and emotions rather than through rational reasoning.
    But the truth is when the childish citizens eventually catch on then there will be pandemonium.
    The backlash will be quite sudden and unexpected.
    We don’t want Sri Lanka to implode again. Every right thinking citizen should wipe the scales off their eyes and face the truth now. Otherwise we will be in for another 5 to 6 years of bullshit all over again.
    It’s time to think outside the box and look for better options that these dogs.

    Catholic voters should ask their representatives in the Parliament whether they are representing the voters. They were shedding crocodile tears after the terrorist attack with the victims and at the end they saved the Government that failed to stop the massacre. What kind of crooks are they? These Catholic MPs spat on the face of His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith by protecting this Government. Do not become two legged donkeys by voting to these crooks again.

    I think, what is happening that Gotabhaya Rajapakse has shown so many sticks. He simply can not go to USA. Senate is waiting there to nail him. On the other hand, what all these are is influencing Gotabhaya Rajapakse to “OK I sign you a Very long agreement of ACSA, In turn you leave me alone”.
    UKraine’s new president is a musician and he never knew what Politics are. I think Mcron is also like that.
    So, what happens if Sri lanka excludes all these 225 who have made only their extended families develop and the country goes to destruction.
    Al Bagadadi has briefed every possible PResidential or PM candidate for what they must do
    IT looks Ranil also get such news and he is talking about global Terrorism. So, we have to buy weapons and Making Srilanka moles a part of theirs( Who knows we may spy on chinese tourists)
    So, the next time BURca, Niqub or Abhaya wearing women blow up inside Temples, or churches most probably temples or religious festivals.

      I think you are a paid dog to the Rajapaksa’s.
      You take on every article that attacks the Rajapaksa family and defend them blindly, defying all logic and decency.
      I think you do it for the money, not because you care about Sri Lanka or the Sinhalese. So come down from your moral high horse, you greedy selfish pig.
      There are several other diehard Rajapaksa ass lickers on CT, some of them could be on a payroll too.
      Its easy to see how one can see, twist and do anything for money once they are blinded by greed.
      Remember Thannahawa gayathi shook!

    Once again Sri Lankans have no choice, there are dogs on both side, selfish idiots, who do not care for the country or the people. They do what is best politically for themselves, and when election time comes, they behave shamelessly, buttering up people they ignored previously, all for the votes. Now with social media, they are able to spread false accusations, stoop to racism, and support thugs, all to get elected.
    Disgusting politicians.

    One North american web site says, just two days after USA, began its project of making a Sri lanka a Military Logistic hub and part of that is Not allowing Gotabhaya Rajapakse or Rajapakses not taking the power. I think what happened was, My suspicion, Mahinda Rajapkse said OK I do that but he did not do it. So, they are pissed off. Even though Ranil gives information saying I was asked to do that, do this, he continues supporting their Sri lanka the PIVOt to asia program.

    They say, after the successful Regime change in 2015, they are busy destabilizing Sri Lanka which will not work for India and China. Mangala samraweera and Ranil Wickramasinghe will definitely sign SOFA and complete the Military Logistic hub program , Selling Every thing to MCC-run Hyperstate.
    Sri lanka’s challenge is getting rid of most of the Sinhala politicians and entire UNP govt.
    Upali Thennekon and other journalists should be arrested and question about their revenue trails and other actions. It is well known, it is NGO Dollar Kaakkaas who are pushing Ekneligoda’a wife.
    I think sumanthiran and CPA are good friends.

    Intelligent people will struggle to understand why Dr Ranil’s hand picked Police Chief couldn’t round up all those Murder Suspects, for all that well nigh four years..when Dr Ranil’s Cops sort of arrested the whole Rajapaksha Family including the Old Raja’s Mother in Law to bring them in for Interrogation at the CID.
    And Dr Ranil and Sagala Boy controlled the Lanakawe Police Force all along until Ibrahims and Zaharan Boys came to Kochchikade on Easter Sunday…

    This Dog biting Dog analogy seems very funny..
    Because Lankawe have mainly Paraya dogs..
    The Cool Breeds are all in Poodle Club Members households in the Port City.
    And their Training and their Diets do not encourage them to bite Paraya dogs specially because of Health Reasons..,

    So how can this analogy hold even if Paraya Dogs from Anuradahapura come all the way to bite Paraya Dogs in Medumulana. when the Attorney General ,Police Chief.and even those X Press Delivery Special Courts are all under Dr Ranil?..

    Do Daham and or Chatthu have any Staffordshire Terriers?.

      Your confusion with “dog eat the dog” analogy is understandable b’cos your “Prez-to-be” applied the modal called “dog swallowed the dog”! That is what happened to 44 journalists & 4 FSP cadres. But, I’m not so sure Tripoli boys were capable enough to handle that many by themselves. Most likely, 42 Thalathel boys were taken care by some other unit in the north itself. In any case, I don’t understand why the Tripoli boys are called intel agents when their real duty was acting like hunting dogs; not even sniffing on dogs!

      But, some dogs never get a chance even to kiss a dog, let alone eat a dog. The one fetched from Zurich in a special plane is such a unlucky fellow. Then again winning the affection of the beloved second half of the most feared corporal SL ever had could be that unfortunate experience, I guess. I wonder how press boys from Derana, Hiru, divaina, Maubima call it when they visit him for a voice cut. Baby Hamu? Poor Fredrica Janz. She had to leave the country to protect herself from being swallowed by the bulldog.

      BTW, Ibrahim boys couldn’t have pulled off the Easter festivity if Polonnaruwa dog didn’t start to chase Ranil away from the security bunker. Any how, Ranil learned the lesson of “getting up flees once slept with dogs” in a hard way.

      About A’pura dog eating M’Mulana dog, I guess M’Mulana dogs hated to see other dogs in the pack following ex Alpha female!

        Mano,

        Brilliant , Mate. You beat me to it..

        I thought the samething after watching that Hiruni’s Press Speech about those Top End Legal issues confronting Dr Ranil Yahapalana Shenanigans, to postpone the Elections.
        And bagging the only Sinhala Buddhist Deputy of the UNP Keselwatta Kid for not doing his OLs. at Royal.

        Hiruni looks to be the total package -Machang..
        I hope you are not one of those Poodle Club members and get offended by being called Machang..
        -..
        Hiruni will leave the Pack well behind ,like a nice Grey Hound, which I occasionally pick to put a wager..

        Dee Pee.

        Dr Batalanda Ranil in charge of the Yahaalana Security Bunker.!! You can’t be serious.

        I know those Pira Boys were having a Picnic in the North and the East in them days, until our Paraya Dogs went and Bit the Lot.
        I am also aware that it took over long 25 years for our Paraya Dogs to do it, mainly because our Poodle Club Boys didn’t want to join the Paraya dogs,
        And their moms and dads were not keen to see their Boys to leave the Ols and Als to help the Paraya Boys ,who only had only 8th Level, if lucky
        And quite a few Moms and Dads in the Top End of the Town were even barracking for Pira and his Boys.-

        Anyway our Yahapalana Inhabitants have forgotten all that now,
        Even UNP MP Hiruni Premachandra does not want that OL Drop out from Keselwatta ,to lead their mighty party, even if the Kid is the Odds on Favorite to become 3rd UNP President of our Mahavamsa Land.

        That is how much progress we have achieved after Sira helped Dr Ranil to become the Prime Minister after being confined to potter in the Sriikotha Gardens for 20 years , when not doing his Stand Up Gigs in Kotte.

        BTW who made that famous quip ” Sinhalaya Modaya Oil Cake eating Yodaya”..
        Hilarious,
        Was it Portugese after Christening our last Sinhala Buddhist King “Dom Juan Dharmapala”?..
        Or was it the Pommies who enthroned the father of the UNP, D S Sena as the first Mahavamsa Prime Minister?..

        Is Keselwatta close to Kollonnawa?…

      “Do Daham and or Chatthu have any Staffordshire Terriers?.”

      Never insult/undermine Daham, following his predecessors such people like NM, Colvin, Banda, Ponna, SWRD Banda, Kathir, Navin Nayaka, ………who took on the British Empire, …….. he too has a British qualification, he graduated this month.

      Well he like his predecessors, Ponna, Kathir, ….. he too attended UN General assembly, met with many world leaders including Putin, Modi, Tirupathi chief priest, ………..
      Daham a ranaviru who bravely took on Asela the son of DIG Ravi Waidyalankara and gave him a broken arm, and a holiday at Batticaloa Intensive Care Unit, later at a disco venue, ………………. A typical political brat.
      Give him some respect.

    I agree the Regime change of Jan. 2015 was not helpful to India or China because of the US intervention. It was like a third dog in a dogs’ mate and the dogs were busy otherwise than fighting each other.

    What if two dogs fight in the race for presidential election and if a bitch contests and easily defeat the dogs ?

    I guess RW will be smart enough to field a bitch and snap an easy victory.

      “I agree the Regime change of Jan. 2015 was not helpful to India or China because of the US intervention.”

      Wasn’t it the case that the regime change was engineered and facilitated by Hindians and to some extent by Uncle Sam?

      However your new mate KASmaalam K.A. Sumanasekera would like Gota to win the presidential elections at any cost. He believes Gota’s victory could save some vitaly needed funds and unnecessary hassle by avoiding presidential elections indefinitely until Gota’s natural death or win indefinitely in subsequent rigged elections. Gota’s white van fleet and his goons will enforce peace.

    Willi Blake Praised Gotabhaya Rajapakse. But, one Foreign media article says, USA is hell bent in not letting Rajapakses ( I think Basil excluded) to come to power. They also say both Ranil and Mangala are doing what they can to make Sri lanka a NATO member, and to support that MCC COMPACT and ACSA.
    I say Maithripala as Gotabhaya Rajapakse should come as the Prime minister.

    Sadly, the murders of Lasantha, Wassim and assault on Keith have become political football. It looks as if the media seem to relish this. In my view, evidence against the perpetrators should have been found, individuals prosecuted and convicted many moons ago. People like me are not interested in just a miniscule of action used as a bargaining chip. Now if Mahinda decides to select someone totally different as the flower bud candidate, what would all this criticism centered around Herr Gottler? Will it be thrown into the dustbin and still those vicious attacks and murders committed remain unsolved? Sri Lanka as a nation must come better than this.

    All these criminals / crooks should be chased away in the next election. No Rajapaksas, No Wickramasinghes, No Sirisenas. and certainly not that idiot Sajith. All 225 MPs should be rejected and punished for the crimes done to the nation. We hope Nagananda and his team including former Auditor Generals, Gamini Wijesinghe & Sarath Mayadunne can save this country.
