    This is the best way to make money. Print money and allocate to ministry of Defence. Pocket the money and give the government supporters pictures and news of false military victories mixed with planty of cricket. Tell that Slanka can win the cup. Intimidate all media people. Gag them. Put vocal critics like Sripathy behind bars without bail. Throw bones to dogs(SLFPers) and they will sleep without barking.

    Collapse of the rule of law

    While AHRC has characterised the situation of Sri Lanka as one of an exceptional collapse of the rule of law it said that unless the international community positively and strongly supports the people of Sri Lanka, who are the only ones who seem to want to see a return to normalcy, and to re-establish the normal framework for playing by the rules, which is the framework of democracy and rule of law, things are likely to get worse.

    `It is not enough for the international community to call on all Sri Lankans to play by the rules, it must positively assist the country and its people to make that possible,` AHRC said.

    The organisation further said that the Sri Lankan cricket team has endeared itself to the whole world by its charming sportsmanship.

    `They know to play by the rules and they have also proved that they can still win when playing by the rules. Their experience has been positive and that is good reason to develop a healthy mentality of being an example of sportsmanship. They are psychologically upbeat because in the field of cricket they know the rules and play by them,` the human rights organisation said.

    Plea

    It further added that however, unfortunately in the field of politics in recent decades the Sri Lankan mind has become deranged. It is mortally scared of playing by the rules and does not even hide its opposition, even for the sake of not being embarrassed internationally.

    `The plea is for the international world to understand that Sri Lanka cannot afford to play by the rules. It is this deeply entrenched position that the government is expressing to the international community by its unrestrained attacks on the call to play by the rules.

    `The international community instead of being irritated by such a message from the government should see it as an eye-opener to the depth of the problems Sri Lanka is facing, AHRC said.

    Amnesty`s campaign and the government`s knee-jerk reaction to it reached the streets of Colombo last week with protestors wanting Amnesty to mind it own business and leave the cricketers alone. According AI that is what it is doing, and it is the government that has dragged the cricketers into it so as to save face.

    Printing money is digging grave. There will be a collapse of this bankrupt govt. 100 ministers of a small country which is a well kinown maids Republic.

    Rs.100,000

    Housing allowance for each minister, the president is out of his senses. He could have easily maintained a healthy working majority by honouring the MOU signed with UNP instead of playing underhand tactics to bribe them with ministerial posts.

    Printing Rs 38,000 Millions will send the inflation through the roof and the govt down the grave.

    This is the height of `gon katha` that a Motta Raala supporter would have to reply with for a news article such as this. `Loku mee haraka` is maintaining jumbo cabinet by printing money. It would be one thing if the `podi mee harak` are turning a blind eye to such actions by the `loku mee haraka`, but what`s hilarious is `podi mee harak` are going to the extent of defending such actions as well. A land like no other...
