Defending the defenders of Sri Lanka

    There is freedom of speech and media rights in Sri Lanka as much as in any other democratic country in the world. The problem is that some media personnels seem to grossly overuse their freedom and some even think they are above the law. Clearly, the opposition parties have their own supporters in the media in the same way as LTTE supporting journalists who publish their biased opinions and some using blatant lies. The opposition cannot see anything good about what the government is doing. as the author suggests all parties should get together to support and defend the soldiers who rescued the country from the ugly terrorist. If we cannot get the consent of Ranil and Co, who made visits to Norway talking to Solheim, when the valiant soldiers fought the last battle, at least the MPs who `love the country` will support this idea.

    This government is very pious because often I see, in the TV, the president pays visit to some big temples and get the blessings of some big thero. This is how he hide all his short-comings and corruptions of the government.
