You forgot something, Mr. Blake!

    [ Who is the idiot who wrote this ? ]

    That`s a very good question. Who writes these `Editorial News` articles? Some of it is a pain to read because they just use to many `big words` that`s just tiresome to go through, I usually ignore them completely.

    [Why the hell are you worried about a hypothetical situation in the wanni when the whole future of our country depends on a fair election in the NCP and Sabaragamuwa ? ]

    Hmmm...that`s pretty interesting. I thought it was just another two PALA BABAS. Yet, I now feel that there is more to it.

    I smell something in the word `future`. Definitely the `good` result meant by the Samaritans, must be a one that implies the people are against the war. People want a change in the government and so fourth.

    Leave the government change aside. Even if it happens it would be a matter of months Rajapaksa takes it back, like CBK did. We are pretty sure that Ranil can bring inflation down to 2%. Fine with it.

    What is the policy of UNP on war?

    [ So, doesn`t Ambassador Blake think he should be more concerned about the absence of elections in the Wanni than the elections being conducted in the other parts of the country? Did he forget to ask the Elections Commissioner at Wednesday`s meeting why no elections had been held in the Wanni for so long? As for enabling people to exercise their franchise, Mr. Blake`s services are most needed in that part of the country. ]

    Well maybe Mr Blake didn`t ask that because, using your analogy, that would be like holding elections in Afghanistan and Iraq before the US and it`s allies went in and got rid of the problem, namely the Taliban and the Saddam Hussein regime. Why didn`t the USA do that? Hmmm, maybe because the Taliban and the Saddam Hussein regime wouldn`t let there be free and fair elections. There you go, using your analogy.

    What is the purpose of this letter ? It is simply worthless !!

    It is clear from what has happened in the past and what is going on right now, there will not be any impartial elections in the country as long as only a few Families are involved in governing the country. SWRD, Sirima, CBK ...Bandaranayke and Ratwatte and now it is the turn for the Rajapakes`s.

    Mr.Blake is very bleak in his stand I guess it seem these blakes always see the bad side of what`s going than the good things that is happening. He should go to the north and talk to normal people and find out who is really pressing them.Is it the Government or the LTTE brothers.

    I challenge Mr.Blake to do the same thing in India, China, Russia, Afganistan, Japan or for that matter any other country. The US Ambassodor would be given less than 48 hours to leave the country !

    Even Afganistan which is totally dependent on the US for its existance will assert its sovereignity and uphold its self respect and show the door to the US diplomat. But not Sri Lanka!!

    Shame on you, leaders of Sri Lanka.

    This is the American style. Particularly, Europeans think, They are the greatest and they know everything.

    but, election violence is not something new. I think all began during the JRJ time.

    IT should be fair if all the parties get together and stop election violence.

    election violence means a degrading society.

    AnuD,

    [I think all began during the JRJ time. ]

    You are 100% correct. Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike held a free and fair election to bring JRJ to power in 1977.

    What did JRJ do after the election victory???

    He closed all police stations for 2 weeks and UNP thugs went on the Rampage Destroying the property of SLFP`ers and killing them.

    UNP and Ranil are still paying for all the crimes they committed during the 17 year rule.
