      Hey Fukushima,
      Whatever is good forTamil is BAD for Sinhalese. Not SL, because Tamil is Lanka what ever name you use.
      Siri Lanka is home country of Tamils… If you can’t understand this you are not worth to live in multiracial country like Siri Lanka.
      You better stay in a racist country like Japan

    Nobody questions if Mahinda Rajapaksa is anything but a war criminal
    He is all about show
    he changed the name of the stadium airport etc after himself so he could look good to those that came to sri lanka for the meeting.
    He is a joke and its no secret he killed someone when he was in his 20s
    this is all the rajapaksas are
    they are vile and come from the gutter.
    they come from a rural area in sri lanka so they dont know how to behave as politicians,
    they are a very low family of low class that are trying to make it…
    unfortunately they are just jokes
    Gotabaya was living in a trailer and running a 7/11 he had zero experience along with his brothers in politics.
    Mahinda’s father a small time no name politician whos burning in hell right now was also a crook.
    It is horrendous what sri lanka has come to.
    Mahinda wont even let anyone else run for office he either arrest’s them or hassles the opposition
    he silences the media so they can not expose who he is and is so drunk with power.
    THE RAJAPAKSA family will be cursed.
    Remember these words because nothing can protect them from what will be.when this dictatorship is defeated the generations to come will be shocked that we allowed such a family to destroy our land.
    Mahinda Rajpaksa and his sons will be cursed.
    this low class family that came from a rural area
    Sri lankans all hate him but when they leave us there will be celebrations across the land and world that an evil dictator is gone

    If Killing Prabakaran and his Terrorists a War Crime, what do you call Prabakaran and his Terrorists killing thousands of innocent, women including pregnant ones, old men , infants ,toddlers, teens,and even baby monks?.

      Are you deaf about What he said about LTTE? You killed over 70000 people within a month? Don’t you think the killers should be killed?

    The Simple answer is War criminal. He had the opportunity to become a hero but he failed to meet the qualities that is required to be a human to become a hero. A hero is a man who sacrifice his life for the truth, peace, love, equality and for the well being of the people, respect others grievances and most importantly being a judge to deliver the judgement based on truth.

    You cannot compare Sinhala King Dutagemunu with Rajapakse. Dutagemunu went for a war with King Ellalan and at the end of the he respected the dead king and he did not ordered his forces to kill the people of the innocent people. I don’t know this story is true or false but there is something we should learn that the war had a purpose. In a war, you respect your enemy and there are some principles and laws that you have to show and expected from a victorious King. Unfortunately, Mahinda Rajapakse scored negative points and he completely ignored humanity and his actions are more than a war crime but criminal against humanity.

    Secondly Mahinda was not a true human rights activist. He had a selfish purpose and motive to take the power. On the back door he supported JVP terrorism. His human rights activity was about the disappearance of Sinhalese during UNP rule. Now we know the true face of him. How can you call this man as a human right activist who ordered to kill his best friend Lasantha? His violations are not against LTTE but against the truth?

    He is a selfish, He is a liar, He is an enemy of truth? He is an enemy of Buddha, He is an enemy of law and order?

    Who is he?

      Aravinda,

      There is no LTTE in Sri Lanka. LTTE terrorism is over but Srilankan terrorism continues. He did not stop the war. It continues in a different form.Now Not only Tamils are in danger, Sinhalese as well.

    Is MR a hero? He is for most people who wanted the war to end.

    Is he a war criminal? Well, all wars are criminal in nature. Killing the enemy is the number one priority. In all wars disregard for human life and suffering is the order of the day. In all wars innocent bystanders are the ones who suffer most. The LTTE would never have been defeated if a pacifist approach was taken. All people wanted the war to end. Now it is ended, let us get on with life. Digging into what was bad in the war is an exercise in futility. It is not going to make anyone anymore happier than they are now.

    The beaming Prince Charles seems to have accepted the inevitable and eat his cake too.

      Sadly what you have written above justifies LTTE killing the innocent people through various means. For them it was war too. And they also chose not to take pacifist approach over three decades.
