    Listen this bulls..:

    [[President Mahinda Rajapaksa in his Independence Day addressed invited the Sri Lankan Diaspora who left the country as a result of the war, to return to their motherland as the war is almost over.]

    MR is talking `Undara Demala`/Rubbish. He is inviting Slanka diaspora to return. At the same time, SLCB is trying to raise US$500m from diaspora to save the country going bankrupt. Does MR understand any economics. if not for the diaspora, slanka would have been bankrupt 15 years ago, when CBK took over the government. ]

    Now or never what???

    It is now the war will escalate. LTTE may be crushed but nobody really believes that this is the END of the war?!

    A war that has not only lasted for 26 years, but has its roots way back decades before (some even say Centuries) cannot be WON just by fighting down a group of gurilla soldiers.

    I truely believe that LTTE -perhaps in a different coating - will continue this war.

    Just like a house is not a home, extinguishing LTTE is not peace.

    Sorry you`all but the WAR is not over

    [Disunity, treachery and betrayal have cost this country dearly since King Ravana. Sri Lanka`s last king was also betrayed by the nobility of the day ]

    This man is crippling the history. I surprise who the idiot who prepared this speech for him. `Ravana abducted Sita to Sri Lanka in a flying machine and in the end,Rama slew Ravana, defeated his army, and liberated Sita`

    King Rajasinghe was a no better man.He killed many Noble men in his court without proper hearing!If not British we all are by now speaking Tamil and slaves of him!!By the way British were the saviors of our Sinhalese nation.

    In fact who is the one who rally bears all these above mentioned qualities? Who betrayed JVP, LTTE, JHU,and also promote terror among journalists and spread the germs of disunity and treachery?

    New coating is LPTE

    Liberation Pussies of Tamil Eelam.

    Strategy is to have street stunts and dances in some countries for a few months!

    I would like to add to gchula99s comment though I am not a TAMIL.

    How many of our Singhalese friends are aware that historic Kandy Accord (Mahanuwara Givisuma) was written in TAMIL?

    Arowana,

    Please allow me to make a small correction.

    Udarata accord was written in English but most of the up country Sinhalese nobleman`s signatures was in Tamil!!

    DRAFT - OPEN TO DISCUSSION

    SOME WAYS AND MEANS TO HELP THE PREVALENCE OF PEACE

    AND

    GOOD GOVERNANCE IN ANY COUNTRY

    Current wars have to be ended and new wars have to be prevented. To achieve this goal the present system of Democratic Governance has to be changed to one that is really democratic in its true sense.

    In the present so-called democratic system - which is a fertile ground for corruption in various forms - it is only the powerful with a gift of inflammatory speech, money and muscle power can aspire to join the ruling class to suppress or convert all others as their subjects .

    In my opinion `Corruption` includes any kind of waste, neglect and every form of malpractice, dishonesty, abuse, misuse, unreasonable exercise of power, failure or refusal to exercise power, anything and everything left undone which results in the right of the people being denied or impaired.

    Without a `just society` in existence much talked about `terrorism` cannot be eradicated. For the creation of a `just society` there should be `good governance` in the country. For the creation of `good governance` in the country `corruption` in ALL its forms must be eradicated. And to eradicate `corruption` of any form the present democratic system of governance, where full power to make final decisions ultimately rests in the hands of one person, must be changed.

    So the only way to salvage a country is to change the present system of governance to one that is truly democratic where the final decision-making power will NOT be in the hands of ONE person BUT shared by as many people as possible and thus restricting any hasty decisions of an individual or of one group, that might lead to trouble everywhere.

    In my humble opinion to achieve peace and good governance with transparency and accountability in any country, the system of governance must be made truly democratic. The powers of the Parliament (the decision making supreme body of a country) should be split and separated and each of the separated powers must be handled by different groups of persons specifically elected and empowered by the people for the purpose of handling each set of the separated powers or duties as the case may be, so that no single group has the full power. All the groups together will make the whole. The country is not divided but the powers of parliament are divided or separated.

    Different groups have to be elected for such purposes as administration, fiscal management, planning, implementing, policy and law making, auditing and for any other function that may be deemed necessary.

    I would like to submit a set of suggestions that would lead to a solution of the various problems faced by the ordinary innocent people of this country and that would be supported and accepted by them if their minds are not poisoned by persons who have taken upto politics and made politics as a profession through deceptive speech, money and muscle power with no interest for the welfare of the country.

    This post does not allow `cut and posting text from other sources` even if it is my own preparation.

    A part of my suggestions have already appeared. How to post the balance suggestions? I am not a typist to type the balance portion. Any suggestions?

    Most of the views expressed in the article shows that the writer did not understand the tactics of the UNP, which it had been practicing right from the inception of the party.

    The LTTE clearly understood the tactics of the UNP and that is why they made it sure that Ranil does not become the President.
