    [If President Rajapaksa is wondering why the UPFA could not reach the expected target of over 72 per cent of votes in the South, he may find a clue in the arrogant conduct of the ruling party candidates save a few. Most of them are confirmed political freeloaders benefiting from the President`s popularity and driving electors away from the UPFA.]

    this going to hurt few dogs here.

    [Sangha is politicized. ]

    very true... most of the issue Buddhism is facing in SL are born within and exploited by external sources...

    if they can`t fix their own internal issues it will tread a downhill path...

    [Politicians wanted SLDfs to be politicized]

    if this happens...again it only benefits shortsighted leader and our enemies,,,,

    the leaders of this country seems to never learn from past screwups

    President Mahinda Rajapakse is exploiting every little issues to gain petty political gains. He is the only president who promised a lot and delivered virtually nothing. Even the war was fought under pressure from `Hela Urumaya and JVP`, and the war was won by sheer determination of those who survived the assasination. The President now tries to derogate the commitments of Army Generals like sarath fonseka to stay atop as the best of the patriots. This is going to back-fire too shortly. The people will definitely remember him in the history as the one who stood resilient despite international pressure to see the end of terror leader. I join the majority to salute him and give the respect he deserved for ending terrorism.

    As a ruler of the country, you cannot govern a nation with iron-fist. The people wants their liberty such as freedom of speech and freedom of choice.

    War is over. Boasting of war victory will not bring prosperity to the country. The rulers need to do some tangible that can be felt. So far we havent seen any development taking place in our country but the government media is boasting of development while within we remain empty. Currently the country is going from bad to worse. Terrorism in the north is over. Southern patriotism is going to turn even worser if the current trend of nationalism goes unbolted.

    Sri Lanka is about to loose the GSP+ very soon. It is pointless drumming patriotism, do something to convince them. The european union is not asking to bootlick to get this GSP+ concession. They ask only to observe the human rights like freedom of speech, press freedom, reign on extra judicial killing, right for dissent and etc.

    President Rajapakse thinks that he can fool everybody everyday thats why he keeps Mervin & Weerawansa to control the media and people. All I know is Sri Lankan people are smarter than he thinks.
