    When i said that it is a failed and corrupted country, this news confirm that.

    When people die of poverty and war, politicians drive BMW cars.

    What a shame ! More rapidly the people realize how much we are stolen and insulted more rapidly we will live happily.

    According to my calculation 80 million SL Rupee is about USD 770,000.

    But the bullet proof BMW cost USD 88,000 each.

    http://www.cnn.com/US/9804/20/wheels.bulletproof.car/

    Say a super luxury armoured BMW cost USD 170,000 each, is somebody going pocket the rest USD 600,000 times 100 ( 100 cabinet and non cabinet ministers) that is 60 million US Dollars.

    While the SLA is stripping the furnitures and equipments from the Vaharai and Sampoor resident houses, our politicians are looting the Country in day light.

    The masses are eating punnakku.

    This goes to show that these fellows join the government for their personal benefit and I blame the present and past terrorists for putting the country to a such situation,people running the state are insensitive to the cries of the man of the street.There is a lack of accountability and how on earth a poor country afford this luxury?

    Everything can be justified as necessary due to LTTE. As long as stupid people elect such governments repeatedly the country can be kept in a perpetual state of war to benefit a few. If the SLG was sincere at any time, there would hv been peace but then their agenda has always been different. When the people can be fooled so easily, why bother.
