    A Better Place to live ???

    This question should be directed to the relatives of Karuna`s thousands of victims, including the soldiers.

    He lived by the Sword !

    Also he violated international law and served jail term in UK. If not for the GOSL he could not have left SL with a DPL Passport and returned to the Island to take up a highly compensated ministerial position.

    In any other civilized and democratic country, he will never be forgiven.

    In such an atmosphere Prabhakaran also could be thinking of such an option.

    Even the JVP is now rewarded despite the atrocities & looting committed by them. Some of them are now `freedom Fighters` and soon they will start selling the religion too.

    Those who lived by the sword, should........???

    Yes it won`t be a problem as long as we could protect our sovereignty. USA presence in Japan does not have any impact on Japanese development, in fact Japan is much safer with US.

    No country in the world has progressed without

    1) Law and Order -- Discipline with no room for discrimination

    2) Work Ethic- Dedication to put 8 hrs of work for 8 hrs of salary. ( not even 7.99 hrs)

    3) No free lunch or dinner. Only the primary education and health care should be given free and that too only to those who cannot afford.

    All other factors such as RESOURCES, are irrelevant.

    Examples:

    1. Japan has no resources. They import everything.

    2. Switzerland has no Cocoa estates but world`s best chocolate comes from Switzerland.

    What is needed is dedication and law & order.

    In Sri Lanka, Law & Order is disappearing....far into the horizon.

    Can we even cross the road on the yellow line ????

    I recall in Canada, late prime minister Trudeau was handed over a parking violation ticket for parking his car in a prohibited zone on a Sunday. The police officer knew that the car belonged to Trudeau who thanked the police officer for doing his job.

    [in fact Japan is much safer with US.]

    True, but where were the NGOs, when US safely dropped two Nuclear bombs on Japan.
