    Then we will have to start at the top. Remember Hambantota?

    MR and Mafia gang was waiting in anticipation to make another $500m from Tsunami assistance. What a pity, it never came. Looting is common in down south, it happens everyday.

    [ was a boon to looters in Sri Lanka, reports reaching police headquarters said. ]

    Some proud Sri Lankans seem to be desperately waiting for the next tsunami. Rapists, looters, thieves, some police guys.

    ... GOSL may remember $3 billion that were donated to SL from IC governments and private people in the West.

    At the same time on Thai beaches: No evacuation, no panic, no looting, government, officers calm, collected, professionally on alert.

    `A certain church and a temple refused to accommodate`

    They are not priests but ordinary laymen who haven`t had any understanding about the religion. Not worth to the robe.

    Looters are in high hand because of the cowardliness of the police. I remember, long time ago many cops deserted their police stations almost up to Kandy and Galle ( ran out with their tails over the head ) just hearing the bogus news of LTTE attacking the Colombo.

    Proper organization dedication understanding and honesty can beat any violence in any anywhere.

    Idea of 100 meter buffer zone is a good and timely step.More important thing is to organize people in those areas to stand against the panic.

    When the tsunami hits the first people get panic are the looters.So fist thing we should is to get the nominated organized members in the respective areas on to the road before the looters.

    [Looters thrive on tsunami panic]

    One man`s food is another man`s poison!


    [Where is GOD]

    GOD has given up on Sri Lanka long time ago! It`s the DEVIL who is in charge now.

    Church used to give refuge to people irrespective of race or religion but during the last 10 years Buddhists including monks have gone to churches and vandalized and in some cases set fire. So I wont blame the priest for not taking any chances.

    [GOD has given up on Sri Lanka long time ago! It`s the DEVIL who is in charge now.]

    Remember the joke about the US President, British Prime Minister and our own JR meeting God with their respective wishes. When God refused their Wishes both the US President and the British PM cried. But when JR made his Wish, it was God`s turn to cry because JR`s wish to modernise Sri Lankan Telecom services was beyond God in his life time!
