    Just look at him bragging about enlisting gullible village youths on the back of a misinformation campaign! Has his or his brother`s children put their lives on the line? I guess the hypocrisy of it all is lost on the shopkeeper from Yankee land.

    A move to create victims and disabled among the poor in towns and villages. He wants more opportunities given to poor in the villages to kill and destroy and get killed.

    [ Addressing a ceremony at the Defence Ministry recently, where 27 three-wheelers, funded by the Ranaviru Seva Authority,

    were distributed among families of disabled service personnel, Mr. Rajapaksa expressed the necessity of going to village level, as current recruitment drives only focused at the town level.

    `We should set up centres at village level to recruit youths to the armed forces, otherwise the village youths might lose the opportunity, as they would find difficulties when filling applications,` he said. ]

    Let the influential and law makers also decide not only how to wage war but how to end it. It is cruel for the powerful to wage war but expect only the poor to fight it out while they and their children are safe.

    If Rajapakse want all in the country to contribute to the war, fight and die or whatever, he must bring constription, to ensure influential and down-trodden, die or live on a par. This will also ensure the influential lose their young, brother or husband, and think constructively about prolonging this war.

    Division of labour.

    Rich makes laws and the poor obey them.

    Elitists rule and the poor youths go to the battle front. They send their children abroad to be educated in English with the commissions gotten from arms purchase and defrauding aid funds.

    Down trodden join the Security Forces and carry guns under the burning sun in military outfit. They go away from their families just to support them. They get killed but most of them are listed as missing or deserted to conseal the real casulties so that more can be encouraged to join the cannon fodder-queue.
