Has the monster risen from hibernation?

    This strike shows us Sri Lankan people put national interests before their wellbeing (Salary increments etc). While I consider JVP`s demands as legitimate, It is absolutely stupid to call for an national strike at this juncture where brave security forces are fighting a decisive War to liberate country form the menace of terrorism.

    Security forces are scarifying their young lives for the country and its people. They and their families also feel the same pain as other strikers due to the high cost of living. However, strike will hurt country`s economy and weaken its ability to fight against terrorism. That is exactly what terrorists and their sympathisers badly needed.

    If the strike were to be successful it could have sent a wrong message to the security forces that people of thier country put stomach before the country.

    I think JVP should rethink their strategies if they want to have a successful political future.

    Another point is that there should be people to fight terrorism

    You can not fight a war with people in hunger

    not a country like Ethiopia

    This strike has no impact what so ever on the war. This allegation brought foward to justify the state terror on strikers.

    [ It is absolutely stupid to call for an national strike at this juncture where brave security forces are fighting a decisive War to liberate country form the menace of terrorism. ]

    brave? In what way? Supported and provided by all the modern weapons and attacking sea air and land at cornered and helpless enemy.Find another word from dictionary to express this attitude.

    [ However, strike will hurt country`s economy and weaken its ability to fight against terrorism. ]

    SLFP is forefront in launching strikes right through our democratic parliament history. So reap what you sow!

    [ I think JVP should rethink their strategies if they want to have a successful political future. ]

    I think this is better and democratic way to express disappointment than armed struggle. Mahinda embraced corrupted UNPers making JVPers null and void.The real people who helped Mahinda to crown.

    [Young,doctors lawyers uni students engineers and scientists were the some assassinated by then GOSL.]

    When gchula99 says GOSL assassinated doctors, university students, engineers and etc he fails to say that it was then UNP did those as well as the JVP them selves. Generalizing `the GOSL` is a cheap term eelamists use and gchula99 is showing his true colours now, having hard time being in disguise for a long time (monster risen from hibernation ). Recently he posted a statement ` You guys ran from Colombo to Gall when the rumour spread `kOLOMBATA KOTI AVILLA` IN 1983 implicating that he does not belong to the `You guys` who apparently were ordinary sighalese. JVP was in good terms with JRJ for some time (JVP did not participate in the general strike where thousands lost jobs during JRJ government)and it is possible that JRJ used JVP to start ethnic riots in 1983. It is also possible that JVP was behind the rumour of 1983 `KOTI kolombata avilla` since it needed a well planned and orgarnized plot to spread it with such success .

    gchula99 calls him self a former soldier and we are well aware of the fact that there were some elements of JVP infiltrating the forces in 80`s. JVP wanted to kill army officers and their families and got bumped off right away to the last CC member except for Somawansa.

    JVP is a plague in our country , which destroyed many thousands of valuable lives of two generations of our youth.

    [Srimao betrayed JVPers and pushed them into the armed struggle. Mahinda also doing the same.]

    What rubbish.

    How did Sirima betray JVP when JVP betrayed the entire nation by staging an armed insurrection in 1971 against a democratically elected government in 1970?

    gchula99 comes from the same cast of JVP fundamentalists and had been very cast conscious in his posts.

    Cost of Living in SL, specially in Colombo is very high!

    SL`s Inflation rate higher than Zimbawe!

    Srilankans Sinthabath!!

    ]

    So gchula99 wants the SLDF to fight the LTTE terrorists with bow and arrows , shot guns , galkatas, Molotov cocktails, when the terrorists use conventional weapons of modern war fair as well as human bombs.

    The Stupid JVP thought in 1971, that they could use the 19th century marxist/ Lenin text books of how to do a revolution and capture state power by attacking few police stations , forcefully occupying an industrial complex(Thulhiriya Weaving mill) and etc.

    Then in late 80`s they thought intimidation of the masses by killing civilians who oppose them will bring down the UNP government.

    What dumb morons JVP and their supporters are?

    Both factions of JVP, Somawansa and Weerawansa, have been destructive, failed and spent forces.

    Sri Lanka should totally reject them.

    But due to this election procedure, any crook can enter that Cattle Shed (so-called parliament), through the List.

    Also when a Candidate from Party A get selected, Party B can bribe the candidate and get that crook to work for Party B. This is nothing but corruption and dishonesty at the highest level.

    These crooks have destroyed a once beautiful country Sri Lanka.
