      Good observation.

      This is how they planned the “Arab Spring” in Tunisia, Egypt etc. Though it came to bite them in the back like the Egypt case, they again toppled democracy ther to give power to the Army on the take from the CIA and israel.

      Don’t worry, Sri Lanka intelligence is watching.

    I don’t see the point of this because even 3 wheel drivers I knew were on Facebook or knew of it.

    The people who avail themsevles of the US offer are not going to be illiterate and from the bottom rung of society; these peopel will already be aware of social media and how to access it.
