For international aid We won t bow down - Sri Lanka President

    [President Mahinda Rajapaksa vouched that his Government would not yield or be subjected to any conditionality to obtain monetary assistance from international agencies.]

    Dint he previously say that he did not want any money from IMF that foreign lenders were lining-up to give him loans and that too he did not want as the Sinhala Patriots were going to buy SL T-Bills.

    Man this guy has eaten magic mushroom.

    [We will not pawn or sell our motherland to obtain any monetary aid from the IMF or any other international agency. Neither will we bow down to any conditions or transform our land to a colony. ]

    Whatever the form of expression, independence from outsiders is needed by both sides now, to identify with the `natural` solution that is emerging. Domestic influence towards wins would be more damaging than external influence.

    This is how a Country should function.

    Sri Lanka needs a Leader and not one who goes all over the world and lick IC.

    [ were going to buy SL T-Bills. ]

    Right now Credit Crunch. People are scared to touch their accounts.

    [Do not transform these laws and regulations, into fetters, which may deter progress. Also do not use them as tools to shun away from your assigned duties. You are entitled to have your own political perceptions and may not agree with the Mahinda Chintanaya. ]

    This is a form of treason to Public Administration and the judiciary. It`s the duty of the government to implement reforms to laws so the people would relate to them. Failure to do so whilst encouraging preferred use of subjective values is a kind of dictatorship.

    People normally don`t get leaders they want but leaders they deserve.

    MR is not an independent leader. He is adjusting down to his own downgraded status allocated by the IC. He does not have the right to deny Sri Lankans their earned credits and opportunities through investment in International values, minds and principles.

    Tamils do have leaders that you cannot/don`t want to see. As per your statement Velu is the sole leader of Tamils and if Velu is a terrorist to you then all Tamils are.

    [Tamils got Velu]

    Yes after many who spoke about Tamil grievances and then went to parliament and became a part of the corrupt establishment.
