    Hon. President Mahinda Rajapakse wants a bigger role by ASIAN countries such as US, India and China.

    All three countries are super powers. They have invented very modernized sophisticated electronics devices and powerful arms. There would be another war for peace.

    The other countries have their own problems. we should try our best and if we fail only we should approach the others.Mr President you took up this Prestigious position and now like a Government Officer say that you have no time. There are certain things you have to do it yourself, and of course delegate other matters to the respective Administrators with definite instructions on priority basis. All have only 24 hours and it your business to plan your affairs remembering that things won`t happen by itself.

    Now only G.W.BUSH IS VISITING THE `HURRICANE AREAS`AND HE IS UNDER SEVERE FIRE. HE HAS DELEGATED LOT OF AFFAIRS TO M/S RICE AND AND MARKING/PASSING THE TIME. IN BAGHDAD HE HAS BURNT HIS FINGERS,NO HAND. IRAN IS ASKING THEM TO GO TO HELL AND CARRYING ON WITH THE NUCLEAR PROGRAMME. YOU KNOW WHERE YOU STAND.

    India has forgotten the Sri Lanka issues after IPKF and Rajiv. Do not bother them unnecessarily.

    If China gets involved in a big way what will be India`s reaction. Do you want to upset the Power situ in the Indian Ocean.

    WE are a small country and cannot afford to get into a mess anymore.

    When we got independence in 1948 $ was 6/= and a sterling pound Rs.13.65 today it went up to around 100/- and 180/.?. Then there were Srisenas and silvas from Matara were doing buisness in Vadamaradchchi. Pathiranas from Kurunegala were doing well in Jaffne and one of them became a respected Judicial Officer. These people were not differenciated there and went to the same school and studied together like brothers. One tme Speaker (from Anuradhapura) of the House was an old boy of St.John`s, Jaffna.

    Poor people are suffering and the politicians are ordering and using high powered vehicles with what not?.

    MR. PRESIDENT BE A TRUE BUDDHISTS AND TREAT EVERYBODY EQUAL IN THE COUNTRY AND WHY NOT GO FOR SOME SORT OF FEDERALISM LIKE IN INDIA OR USA AND SOLVE THIS PROBLEM ONCE AND FOLL ALL.

    u should ask them from the sinhala peopl who voted him. Mahinda never had a plan .. all he said was Gavravaneeya samaya which only JVP and JHu understood.

    I am sad to see that the majority of my (sinhala) comunity didnt see that MR was blind.

    Yes as you guessed i am not a big fan of JVP and JHU as i dont love war.

    Mr is a good man. he will just exist like Chandrika for the period.

    Any involvement by foreigners need to be Open and Transparent - so we know that they are not eating into OUR work. All must pay their membership fee - one way or the other. Otherwise, Tamils are entitled to take their own people and assets to strengthen the Tigers.

    In all this, does Rajapakse realises that he has to do something; not other countries? So what has he got to say? First it was going after India, they want nothing much to do with it, then it was the much maligned US of A who were good enough to offer an empty threat.

    But Mahinda is the president, he has to lead, the whole country is waiting for his response; just palming off the responsibility to other countries is not good enough.

    If this is all he has to offer as president, might as well ask USA or Britain to run the whole damn country. The potbellied-neo-imperialist Britain has done it before. It`s hard to believe that they did such a bad job when you see all these Sri Lankan Uncle Toms with dyed blonde hair (most in their Psyche) - 58 years after the fact - still want to mimic them. I am yet to meet a person who mimics someone they don`t admire. We`ll what do I know?

    Anyway, my, my, how times have changed! Now it`s good old Yankee doodle dandy uncle Sam is our last hope. I don`t think he knows Singhalese, so what the heck, we can insult him and beg at the same time.

    Another hardline election promise fulfilled.

    We should be just so so so so happy!

    Vinivida my friend now how can we turn this in to a good bolt of propaganda? In the lines of..........

    Our excellent leaders have pulled off another diplomatic stroke of genius........

    We all live in hope, to the bitter end.
