    The author seems to be giving out danger signals of the possibility of General Fonseka coming forward to as a presidential candidate. While hinting at a military regime the author tries to riducule everybody who wants to support the General. It is time that we realised this country is not going anywhere if we continue with the present political system. Everybody who contest in the present election system needs the services of the underworld to look after their safety and has to spend millions of rupees to get the manapes. Once they get elected they will want ministries to make money and live a kings life. The poor voters are the loosers. For the last 14 years the country had been going back in progress, getting economically bankrupt while the politicians have been making fortunes for their next ten generations. It is time we had somebody who has no attachments and greed if we need this country and the people to have a better future.

    People who are talking dictatorship and loosing democracy are the real robbers of this country.

    What have we achieved during last 60 years of Independence. These politicians and their families had ruin this country under the name of democracy.

    To be in power or hide their sins they change sides at every election or any possible point and took ordinary man for a ride.

    Now they are worried of themselves. If a good disciplinarian and administrator like a nature of Gen. SF comes up all their corrupt actions will be expose to the public.

    Then use the word Dictator as `Goni Billa` and to ruin the country more by using the word democracy.

    [It is time that we realized this country is not going anywhere if we continue with the present political system.]

    JRJ brought this system to be in power till his death after defeats of his party in 1956 and 1970.

    Now everyone use this system to be in power as long as possible and do nothing for the development of the country but earn more money and always thinking of next election.
