LankaWeb Forum is to Publish Dialogue

After publication of my opinion-; The General in USA, The President in Sri Lanka & The Double Sided Coin – Posted on November 1st, 2009, I received a comment  from a reader that reader(s) should keep out of – President vs General.

Anyone with a positive interest should actively follow this saga, since it affects every single citizen of Sri Lanka and the voice of the Patriots.

As an active participant in the LankaWeb  Forum for over ten years, I consider the primary objective is to encourage civilised open dialogue. In my personal opinion, LankaWeb has contributed immensely to the Sri Lanka expats and other patriots to express their opinions and cultivate dialogue.

In my above article, I did not take the side of the President or the General but attempted to highlight forces in the shadows trying to cast intrigue and suspicions on the Leadership and the good General is within this Leadership.

Said that, any reasonable, sane human being should recognize the fact that President Mahinda Rajapaksa has performed an incredible task during a brief period under three years.  Equally General Sarath Fonseka has conducted himself as a military leader par excellence. As said before, this was a Team Effort.

As my good commentator said, both the President and the General are equally highly motivated, intelligent Patriots, who would not harm the country, they fought to save. This is accurately observed!

At the end of the day, the voters, the punters, the trouble makers would take sides, but in this case, I sincerely believe neither the President nor the General would demean their dignity to discuss their differences of opinion, which each party is entitled to, in the open Galle Face Green.

Thank you for your comment, Mr Sydney Zoysa!

    I like your way of thinking. There is always more to every story. It is interesting to see the new trend that make those who claim to be achievers, patriots or doers to prove their worth by themselves. Obviously, we cannot influence the outcome. Let us see how things work out in time to come. The military defeat of Tamil Tiger barbarians is an ordinary issue for me compared to other more pressing issues. I am someone who had made my feelings very clear long before this eventuality that these stupid unhuman murders should be treated and hunted down like mad stray dogs for reasons better known to me than trying to deal with as equals. I am also someone who laughed at the US classification of this terror outfit as the worst simply because of their own inaptitude. Unfortunately these murderers were used as a political tool for 30 long years. I hope it is over by now. However, I feel that we need to learn more about the recent military victory as it has far-reaching effects that may even affect the way we conduct future wars. For the record and your future reference, I want to add that some of the well-published decisions made by the top military-political leadership had a devastating impact on the ground quite contrary to the popular thinking and that the price paid is too much to claim anything beyond satisfactory level. We must learn and do better next time.
