    CFA is a gold lined document even if it is only in the paper. It defines line of control. It also defines two legitimate parties of the conflict.

    I hope this time there is some keenness to wards solving the issue. It looks like USA, UK and even Australia are slightly changing their tact which may push the Govt and LTTE to wards the table. Where is this going to end. Time to look forward.

    Co chair countries dealing with Sri Lankan peace process should also include China and India.

    What happens if LTTE asks for the Pre-CFA East ?. If it is going to be a deadlock, then let the people in East decide.It is the most democratic way i can think of.

    Both parties should be genuine and sincere in finding a solution. Otherwise we will be back to square one.

    The issue is as Sri Lankans or Sri Lankan born, we want Peace but we are not demanding peace. There must be only one indicator by which we must judge all governments - not cost of living, not petrol prices, not housing etc but simply have you solved the ethnic issue? If not, you go!

    I wouldn`t hold my breath. We will be back to square one as long as VP and MR on the table.

    Isn`t this the problem? with due respect, there will never be peace if we - normal and unbiased citizens- don`t think so. time for us to put our legs forward and demand peace. I don`t know how one can participate in it - meaning on the peace process - but we must try. if we don`t then this country is on for a free-fall. I am a new member!

    Kankun,

    Well if we want we can get rid of MR in the next poll. What about VP ? Tamils in Killinochie , Mulativu or even in LTTE hierarchy have no say about that .If he is civilized enough he should be honest enough to go for a mandate from the people.

    Apart from this we cant depend on these two to solve the crisis. The civil society comprising both Singhala and Tamil intellectuals should ask for a Senate. Which can revoke any imprudent motion from the legislature as well as veto any dictatorship from the executive.
