Ranil To Expose Rajapaksa’s Temple Based Neo-Fascist Movement

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday in a hard hitting speech in parliament, threatened the exposing of the New Fascist Buddhist movement led by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“What happened at the Abhayaramaya yesterday? Some 20-30 persons came there. .. We have information about the Abhayarama discussion yesterday. We are investigating these racist movements and in a couple of weeks times more organisations will be revealed. We are ready to counter this” he said.

RanilThe Colombo Telegraph in August last year, exclusively revealed that the President and Prime Minister were in possession of a report from the State Intelligence Service which provided details of a plan to create the movement from within temples.

The former President during the time, visited a large amount of temples throughout the Island, and was used for a failed attempt to re-capture power during the parliamentary elections.

The detailed report sates that the sole purpose of these visits was to seek help in safe guarding himself, his immediate family and his brother namely the former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa for the on going cases relating to abuse of power, forgery, murder, fraud, corruption and malpractices through the creation of a Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascist Movement.

Moreover the damning report states that the formation of this Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascists Movement was so well organized, that if in the event any Rajapaksa family member was arrested by the authorities, the entire cadre which also includes certain Buddhist monks could take to the streets within minutes, even leaving their places of work by communicating using secret codes.

Former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa declared recently that a new ‘party of the people’ should be formed as an alternative to the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

It is observed that the drama which unfolded at the Homagama magistrates court may have been a ruse to “check the pulse of the government”- by leaders of the New Fascist group.

Galagoda Atte Gnanasara had no history of turning up at the Prageeth Ekneligoda case during any of the previous hearings. However, politicians who are supporters of Rajapaksa had on numerous occasions been present at the hearings.

In a surprise turn of events last week, Gnanasara had in the courtroom stood up and spoken to the judge, while court was in process. Thereafter he had threatned the wife of Ekneligoda before insulting the judiciary.

“The behaviour, is not consistent with Ganasaras previous records in the court room or with law enforcement authorities. Questions remain as to the motive of his visit to the courtroom that day. The entire drama unfolds in the backdrop of fascist processions, and rumours of a new party being created which Rajapaksas are tipped to lead. Prime Minister would expose all these soon” a source closed to the Prime Minister told Colombo Telegraph.

    I think RW/MS should get on with developing Sri Lanka. Fix day to day living for people, fix roads, fix law and order. Start stalled development projects. Beg china for more money and so on.

    Most people by now has realised RW/MS lied big time to get into power. Things like small cabinet, subsidy or fixed price for Tea/Rubber exposing corrupt individuals with US billions in off-show banks. Murders can be proven in no time. China will be ask to get-out etc etc.

    Now that non of the above has delivered and power is fixed for 5 years, don’t spend rest of the time to cover the lies, get on with governing.

    Or else RW/MS will fall harder than MR and company did in Jan 2015.

      Ranil Wickramsinghe should stop being a coward and lead from the front and arrest Gotabaya Jarapassa and his BBS racist thugs.

      Sinhala Buddhism today is an insult to What the Buddha Taught. In other parts of the world Buddhism flourishes. UnBuddhism is what there is in Sri Lanka today.

      Buddhism in Lanka has been warped, twisted and militarized, and monetized by corrupt and criminal Politicians to divide, distract, confuse and rule the Sinhala masses. Gotabaya Rajapaksa is the mastermind of the destruction, militarization and corruption of Buddhism in Lanka.

      Buddhism is a Hollow Shell also because the Mahanayaka’s have not protected the VINNAYA from abuse, consumerism, capitalism and racism. Gnanasara should not be called a Thera. He is an insult to all good theras. The Mahanayakas should as him to disrobe and hold him accountable for destroying the reputation of the Sasana and for spreading Hate Speech and Violence.

            In that context – Batalanda may be true or untrue – but in compared to what Rajapakshes have perpetrated, this gentelman is a born gentelman by all natures.

    Bravo Ranil, more strength to your diction, your outspokenness and your sense of decency.

    It is indeed a TRAGEDY that No newspaper has written an editorial or authoritative article condemning the disgustingly low behavior of Gnanasara in and outside the courtrooms of Homagama.

    It isn’t a tragedy, it is a SHAME! They would instead at the drop of a hat write editorials on inane matters which have no serious undertones. Thousands of them!

    This Gnanasara is a racist. I do not know who sponsors them but he is well protected by some; that’s for sure. It is time the Law in this land, and those who dispense it, put him away for a long time to cool down.

    This is far too good a country to be torn asunder like this, every few months.

    Make Racism out of style. It is, in the progressive world, and our media is way way backward in that regard.

    Shock! Horror!! A diabolical Conspiracy to rob the country off the “cool” westernised set in Colombo who used a Gamarala to get in to power.

    Is Ranil a Buddhist as he claims? His paternal grandmothers’s (Esme Gunawardena) family became rich by converting to “Church of England” and receiving thousands of acres of coconut lands from the British robbers. His father’s elder brother (Laxman Wickremesinghe)was the bishop of the same church strted by Henry the VII who died of syphilis. Ranil got involved with the Kelani Viharaya and Gangarama through his mother’s family for political reasons.

    Just like SWRD Bandaranayake, this rogue is a “redde asse christiani karaya” the nation should be beware of.

      Every Sinhala-Buddhist who has a name like De Silva, Perera, Soysa, Alwis, Fernando, and such like, come from ancestors who converted to Catholicism in the past, during the Portuguese period. They may shout from roof-tops about the religious purity of theirs and their ancestors, but this is a fact. And this goes to millions of others who have changed from Perera and Silva to more Sinhala sounding names in recent times.

      In any case, what one believes in, or not believe in, is not a matter for public debate. It is not a label that one wears for public consumption.

      Ones religious credentials are to be judged by the way one conducts his or her life, according to the tenets of that religion.

      Going by this standard, there aren’t many Buddhists in Sri Lanka!

    PM Ranil threatened to expose many things, many times like above,those
    who plundered the treasury in the last regime and how much of money
    stacked in foreign banks and by whom,but he does not have the guts to expose them through the Parliament, so that the people of this country know for sure as to what extend our country was plundered during the last rule.

    Hiding these facts away from the people and not acting against
    intelligent reports will boomerang against the Govt, and people
    will start calling them liars. Today at the Homagama courts, the
    priest was set to create trouble and it was a test to find out
    whether the govt. will react strongly in the event such troubles
    are created in the future when high profile cases are to be dealt
    with in the courts. Govt must have trust in the Police and tri
    forces and should ensure safety of the people and roads are rid
    of the protesters.

    It would be the BEST thing for the Prime Minister, the new Government, AND for the entire country, to expose these dangerous rabble rousers, and name the unpatriotic members of this racist groups, so that we can all be aware of what is going on. It would also be good for the true followers of Buddhism, who follow the path of peace and tolerance, to speak AGAINST these anti Buddhist movements. The people of this nation should be asked if they want more bloodshed and years of war at this time. All lies about the Muslims and other minorities should be disproved, and publicized. They are only causing more fear. The minorities in Sri Lanka belong in this country, they have been here for generations, have contributed to progress of this country, and have equal rights. No racist thugs in saffron robes, or power hungry politician willing to see any bloodshed, have the right to make this a nation of racial strife, attacks, hate crimes, and once again destabilize this island of ours.

    Batalanda PM’s “Buddy line” to BBC & Diaspora with the quip that he himself asked for War Crimes Trials first even, couldn’t stop C4 Jonny holding the blow torch to Batta’s belly.

    C4 Johhny demanded direct answers for his questions which covered the following areas.

    * Why the White Judges and the Hybrid Court not in place yet.

    * Why did the Yahapalana Prez tell the BBC Ameen that there won’t be any Foreign Judges

    * Why doesn’t Batalanda come out and explain what happened to the 40,000 Tigers and Tiger supporters whom the Diaspora has registered with the British Govt and the UN as missing persons..

    The way Batalanda was stuttering and squirming and trying to find English words to give pleasing answers to Jonny was not only embarrassing to watch,but an outright insult to the great majority of our inhabitant population who gave their sons and daughters to liberate the Nation from Thamil Terrorists, who were supported and financed by these same Diaspora and their buddies, the BBC.

    Perhaps batalanda should have called BBC Ameen to do him too.

    This bullshit about Neo Fascists is not going to impress our great majority of the inhabitant population,.

    Because they know that Batalanada was with the biggest Fascist Pirahaparan all the way up to Nanthikadal.

    Just check the Hansard to see how Batalanda Ranil and his other Yahapalana boozos in the UNP ridiculed our Rtd Field Marshall and the brave Soldiers, when they were fighting in Alimankada and Killinocchiya.

    Rajapakse Bros & Co will never gracefully retire from politics. Still
    they strongly believe that the majority of the Sinhalese Buddhist Vote base is with them.
    So they are using and will continue to use Sangha and the not so politically savy citizens, so that their political careers survive.

    Unfortunately Ven Theros like Sobitha are no more there.
    So Maithiri – Ranil regime has a difficult task.They need the support of the Sangha who really believes in Dharma.

    The Rajapakses will stoop to any depths to get back to where they were, ripping off the country as if it was their personal fiefdom.

    The whole ‘temple’ scenario was an obvious ploy and care will have to be taken by the present administration to play their cards with care, so that the country doesn’t descend into a state of violence and destruction (with the so-called monks leading the charge).

    Best would be to speedily process the charges against the Rajapakses and put them away ASAP!

    The rightful place for Rajapakase and his Cohorts is the prison. He should be charged for all the misdeeds he had done as President and now after losing power.

    He committed serious offenses while as President abusing his immunity, impunity and influence. Still after losing power he is behind all activities causing tension, discontent and racial hatred. He is the man behind splitting the national flag and the concept of Sinha-Le.

    He should charged for all the murders he committed while as President using his agents, including the Helping Hambantota fraud, and all the illegal activities he got involved using Buddhist monks, and allow an unbiased verdict and surely he rightfully deserves a long jail sentence and that is the way to bring peace and stability in to country. The Government will not spare any mercy had this been committed by any ordinary citizen and so the Government must have the courage and moral responsibility to do the right thing. If not I can only be sorry for the country to slip further down the irrecoverable precipice.

    By the time the PM “reveals” these secret machinations of the Rajapakses, the cast will already be set to make Sri Lanka ungovernable by the Maithree-Ranil combo. Rajapakse still holds the real power, people power, because he has the majority support of the Sinhala-Buddhists, some 60% if not more.

    The 40% Sinhala-Buddhist opposition to the Rajapakses is weak, unmotivated and leaderless. This is the liberal end of the Sinhala-Buddhist spectrum. They are not militant; nor, are they activists. In a confrontation, this Sinhala-Buddhist minority will back down and retreat to their homes. The likes of the BBS will take to the streets and bring down the government.

    The minorities, the Tamils and Muslims, constituting some 25% of the population, will watch from the sidelines, impotent, because any move by them to prop up the Sirisena-Wickramasinghe government will further energise the Sinhala-Buddhist majority support base of Rajapakse.

    In fact, the likes of Wigneswaran, the remnants of the LTTE, and the Tamil diaspora will rejoice the fall of the government because they know that a resurgent Rajapakse is the only short to medium term hope of getting Eelam. Rajapakse is the only person who can motivate the West and India to step in and break-up the country. We have seen that happening in Libya, in Iraq, in Syria. And why not in Sri Lanka, indeed, if Rajapakse is once again at the helm? Thuggish Sinhala-Buddhist supporters of Rajapakse are too dim witted, too dense, to understand the dynamics of the situation, the international repercussions, and the invariability of this happening if Rajapakse regains power.

    These dimwits, the Rajapakse support base, don’t understand that Rajapakse’s stake in all this is not the welfare of the country, but that of his own and his family’s welfare. And this in the light of corruption, abuse of power and other criminal activities which, eventually, will get exposed. Half or more of the parliamentarians, now in government, are also so complicit in these criminalities that they too would seek safety in Rajapakse when push came to shove. Sirisena will be holding dearly to his redde and Wickramasinghe to his trouser if this happens.

    It is time now, for all the good people of Sri Lanka, to come forward and prevent the fascist thugs taking over the country in the name of Sinhalese and Buddhism. It is up to the academics, to pious monks, to community leaders, to the decent civil society, to stand up and be counted and prevent these fascist from toppling the Sirisena-Wickramasinghe government.

    I am no fan of this government or its ineffective governance with blatant nepotism and, perhaps, corruption on the side too. But waiting on the sidelines to see what will happen is no option when a greater danger looms large.

    Rajapakse and the thuggery of the Sinhala-Buddhists must be countered.

      Commenting on your statement:

      “In fact, the likes of Wigneswaran, the remnants of the LTTE, and the Tamil diaspora will rejoice the fall of the government because they know that a resurgent Rajapakse is the only short to medium term hope of getting Eelam.”

      You have hit the nail on the head. There is nothing stopping for like minded Tamils to pick up the other piece of the torn lion flag vis-à-vis the two strips take it as the new symbol of Tamil national flag of Eelam.

      Rajapakse cohorts by displaying the torn national flag should be taken as he has given us Eelam. The whole flag displays the whole country and the split flag with the lion symbol is taken as divided country. Rajapkse has taken the Sinhala land and threw away the land of minorities (to the Tamil speaking people)!

      Good idea and no wonder I too have heard many Tamils say the Tamil dream of Eelam could only be achieved through Rajapakse, not that he loves the Tamils to get Eelam but he is so foolish and so immersed in being Tamil nasty he cannot see the long term reality. No wonder Prabakaran wanted people to vote Rajapakse to power knowing so well he was so tight fisted.

      We must not forget Jews got an Israel only because of Hitler! Tamils should take Rajapakse’s action as a God send blessing in disguise. So let all Tamils rally round the two strips torn and given to us from the lion flag by Rajapakse & Co and we shall rise again from the ashes. Tamils should fly this two strips flag and no one can say anything as nothing was done to Rajapakse &Co and no one was arrested for displaying the lion flag without the strips. Tamils should also have two strip stickers fixed to the windscreen of their vehicles, parapet walls and other places.

      A new militancy will rise and their symbol and flag will be the two strips which Rakapakse tore and gave away!

      Ken Dharmapala – You have written a very realistic article on the current political situation. If the Govt., from day one stood for
      discipline,rule of law,put the culprits who were caught red handed, plundering the treasury and used political thuggery, behind bars,and
      if they stood firmly against nepotism and corruption from day 1 and set an example,they would not have reached the present situation where they have become the laughing stock of the nation and paving the way for an early take over by the opposition due to their own folly, thus
      letting down the voters who voted them to power, facing many odds.

      Magistrates refuse to hear cases, police officials are always on
      sudden transfers as they do not want to handle some high profile cases and many high ranking Govt.servants defy orders from the Govt. Trade unions like GMOA threatens the govt. with strikes over unreasonable demands. This is all due to weakness of the govt.as they failed to maintain discipline and law & order in the country and provided no safe guards to these officials.

        True. But don’t forget that both Ranil and Sirisena are well aware that they don’t have the support of a majority of Sinhala-Buddhists. They were doomed from day one.

        Had a majority of Sinhala-Buddists voted for Sirisena in January 2015 or for Ranil in August 2015, and if that majority was 60 or 65% and that, together with the support of the minorities, the government would have been able to do what you say.

        Circumstance made it necessary for the government to compromise, on law & order, on governance, on the quality of parliamentarians in the coalition and so forth.

        What has now come to pass is a government unable to govern; to govern as those who voted for MS/RW coalition wanted them to govern.

        What my fear is that the Rajapakse supporting Sinhala-Buddhists are playing it into the hands of those waiting to break-up the country. The sure way to achieve this is to undermine RW/MS and bring back Rajapakse.

        And woe be to those who would make this happen because of their stupidity!

            My Elders tell me politicisation of armed forces started in the late 1950s along with the reign of Sri Mao the weeping widow who came to protect the country from colonialists, imperialists, the minorities, Demelas, Christians, Burghers …… her own shadow,..

            In fact politicisation and destruction of the state institutions started with SWRD Banda.

          “What my fear is that the Rajapakse supporting Sinhala-Buddhists are playing it into the hands of those waiting to break-up the country. The sure way to achieve this is to undermine RW/MS and bring back Rajapakse”

          I said just before and I tell it again. It was Rajapakse group who tore up the Sri Lankan flag into two and he took the part with the Lion discarding the two strips and now the monitories will take up the part with the strips as their new symbol and flag for the New Eelam.

          What is stopping the Tamils from displaying the two strips alone without the Lion? Whom can you blame and one has to blame only Rajapakse and his men.

          Many know quite well if their dream is Eelam it can only be achieved through people of the caliber of Rajapakse and not through more gentlemanly My3 or Ranil. Prabaharan had his own reasons why he wanted Rajapakse to win even though he vehemently opposed the concepts of any solution to the Tamil problems. However it misfired, even though the concept was sound.

          As I have said before Jews got Israel only because of Hitler. Had if Germany been ruled by a more benevolent man, Jews would still have been stateless people. They should thank Hitler!

          It is up to the Tamils to strike when the iron is hot and grab this opportunity to make their own national flag of Eelam comprising the two strips torn away by the racist gang of Rajapakse. They have only them to blame if Tamils too start another challenge displaying their new Eelam flag, and no one could do anything on moral grounds for picking up the torn piece of the National Flag as their national symbol.

          Possibly this is the best way to fight Rajapakse and enlighten the people who foolishly follow him.

      You have got a skewed view of all that is happening around you. For example, What Ven.did in Aluthgama was to the dis advatage of Mahinda Rajapakse and they knew it and that’s why they did it. Remember Pacha Ranawaka was behind it too and you know what he in in the UNP proper now.
      The ame goes to BBS contesting the Parliament elections,whose votes were they expecting? UNP?
      Then this Homagama scene is to help form an opinion among the poeple that this so called “Kathiwatha” is needed to control unruly monks then when needed it can be used to jail other monks who really protest aginst the government.
      In other words who support MR.

    What is there to expose ? EVERYBODY IS AWARE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING. It has already been exposed by various news media. What we are waiting to see is how Ranil and his Yahapalanaya Govt is going to deal with this looming problem or will it be a case of fiddling once more while Sri Lanka burns once again? Will he act immediately to stem this rotting onset.It was reported the other day that the President had taken the Cabinet to task for only talking and not acting. I said in a previous piece on CT that this Govt has no teeth or muscle power to act against the woeful corruption of the previous regime and its cahoots; that they are scared of the repercussions and that they are unable to deal with such a situation. A very sad situation for the people of this Country who thought that having got rid of one Devil we could depend on a period of peace and tranquility. The curse of Kuveni looms again.

    The problem is due process. So if the Rajapakshes are to be arrested they have to be investigated to the Nth degree and a cast iron case has to be built first. If while this process is going on the Rajapakshe henchman who are still within the departments entrusted to investigate undermine or stall the investigations the public has to wait until RW fixes the problem thru rehabilitation of the Rajapakshe henchmen. The Rajapakyas always played dirty. When JR dealt with Sirima he made sure it was swift even though the charge was adding a mere zero to a land valuation. So please stop behaving like idiots and fight fire with fire grow a backbone. Due process can be and should be restored AFTER putting these scoundrels behind bars. Don’t put the cart before the horse and hasten your own demise.

    I repeat what I said in another news it here on CT

    Ranil if you are so brave why don’t you arrest the Rajapakse regime and Ganasara. of course there will be riots in their strong hold and by their minority supporters. What is the army doing in the barracks? Deploy the army and arrest all the rioters and lock them up. Have the courage to do it once you don’t have to do it again.

    Yes there is Gota/Mahinda bootlickers in the defence force.
    Identify them and name and shame them and purge them from the defence forces

    The Defence force should be politically neutral together with the judiciary/the central bank and the press and religion.

    Buddhism should have no political allegiance

    OH, Sri Lankans version of MR BEAN in the for of RW has spoken. To me he is “all fart no shit”
    Does he have the brains or guts to do as he shouts?
    So, they will allow the Rajapakses to walk the streets freely with the excuse that he does not want Buddhist priests taking to the streets. LOL.

    PM Ranil is being criticised for being a coward and not taking strong
    action against people who create trouble in the country and for being racial but one should realise that Ranil is only the Prime Minister of the country and the man in charge is the President,still with Executive
    presidential powers and at the snap of his finger, he could do many
    things, like what the past president did but he exceed the limits. The armed forces and the Police come under his control and he could maintain strict law and order in the country and control the media by setting code of conduct. The judiciary and the police are reluctant to do their duties fully as the govt. has not given enough encouragement and protection to carry out their duties without fear or favour. Unless the President takes some stern measures to maintain law and order in the country, lawlessness will set in the country and that would be the end of good governance.
    There is no progress made in the last year in any field. Perpetrators
    of various crimes, like political murders, people who plundered the treasury, move in the country, freely as hands of the law enforcement
    officers are tied. This is a country where the opposition can do more
    damage than the govt. in power.

    While Batalanda PM is picking on Kid Journos who are not even half his age, and make them National Heroes, UNP Colombo MPs are busy clearing Yahapalana 40 footers without paying import tax.

    The latest one was cleared by RTF after a UNP Heavy Parliamentarian instructed the customs officers to send it through the Green Channel without any declarations.

    Thanks to the vigilance of the trade union, STF was able to take it in to custody before the Parliamentarian could get his hands on it.

    The name of the UNP heavy hasn’t been disclosed .

    The fear of our poor inhabitants is whether those containers have AK 47s like in the past, and even used in Colombo at the last Election campaign on people doing canvassing.

    UNP’s Neo-liberal are the real Neo -Fascist, who apply politics of Fascism to replace democracy.

    UNP is the major political party, that in the political operation of last 68 years of acts and proved beyond doubt their are real Fascist.

    Well known any other leading parties has never reached to equivalent that level in politics of Fascism other than UNP leadership!

    Playing role of political democracy-Sri Lankan that leading parties more democracy than politics of UNP Fascism.

    In fact that UNP-Ranil W… by his authority of power enforcement has been misdirect the state power to curtail norms of accepted international democracies’ since 2015 January 9th.

    Ranil wickramsinghe’s is living on exposing ONLY some Rajapakses and not all.

    Ranil wickramsinghe is very unpopular now, if there is an election, this will be the last time that Ranil is a governing leader.

    There are many politicians who behave exactly like rajapakses or any other politicians in the parliament. FCID never touched those politicians. Some are doing well with the help of present UNP govt.

    Ranil is better off in London living side by side with CBK.

    If this President and the Prime Minister are real “VIGILANTE” of the so called “NEO -FACIST” movement spearheaded by the Rajapakses through a “Temple Base”; both of them should have put their act together and arrested such a situation within the first 100 days of Governance. For example, the very establishment of the FCID was “flawed” by requiring the complains to be channeled through a “sub Committee” resulting in the culprits to challenge its legality and seek protection through Higher Courts; the Presidential Commission set up to investigate mega corruption and deals was left without necessary authority and power to apprehend anyone defying its orders; the Attorney General’s Dept. lapses were, I would say, purposely overlooked; Investigating Teams were not properly equipped with the able and competent personnel and no proper check and balance were put in place and even the Cabinet Ministers who were “openly defending” the alleged parties in crimes were kept within the ranks. One EYE OPENER for both of them was: when the AG had given instructions to arrest the accused in the Rs. 600 million “Sil Redi” case, what did the DIG do? He skipped it and was subjected to give an explanation to the Magistrate who was handling it. In the meantime, this case was taken to a higher court and against the will of the Judge in that court, the AG’s representative allowed both the accused to be given bail. Remember the case was very seriously considered in Magistrate Courts to the extent of both the passports of the accused were ordered to be surrendered. Shouldn’t both the IGP and AG questioned on that incident? The Government headed by both the President and the Prime Minister was either “complacent” or “turned a blind eye” to accommodate the “BIG” wrong doors.

    It is also no SECRET that the people had and still have doubts and reservations as regards the “cloudy” understandings between the ex President and the then Leader of the Opposition, now the present PM. This doubt got somewhat confirmed in the early morning hours of 9th January 2015, when the present PM was taken to the Temple Trees by no lesser person than the Chairman of Hilton Hotel – the “Deal Maker” of Rajapakse family and a relation by marriage to a nice of ex President. This PM must always remember that “meeting” and who and who were present when he walked in and bear in mind what the ex President is capable of. Doesn’t he (this PM) know that he (the ex President) even paid handsomely to Prhabakaran to win election. How that money was handed over by whom in solid cash to accomplices of Prhabakaran was publicly stated and well explained by an ex Parliamentarian.

    So with the above, very, very brief history of events, I would put the blame on no one else other than both the President and the Prime Minister for being “complacent” and “accommodating” the known “Roughs” whose “CAPABILITIES” and CAPACITIES” have been “GROSSLY UNDERESTIMATED”. At least NOW; “WAKE UP” or else you would REGRET.
