POLITICAL SUMMERSAULTS IN THE OFFING- “IF YOU GO TO BED WITH DOGS, YOU WAKE UP WITH FLEAS!”
Posted on November 12th, 2009

Now that General Sarath Fonseka’s (GSF) resignation has been promptly accepted by the President Mahinda Rajapakse, the stage is wide open for horse-trading and summersaults. There are strong indications and whispers that GSF will try to keep an arms length relationship with Ranil and his cohorts, by forming his own political party to contest the Presidential and General Elections. Such an action will marginalize the GSF as well as Ranil’s bandwagon.

24 hours is a long day in politics. There is plenty of time for the government to make a move and appoint GSF for senior a Ministerial portfolio, which will place newly formed Ranil’s UNF in a custom-designed Wal- Mart coffin to RIP.

If GSF forms his own political party, there will be instant upsurge in his party. But due lack of political experience, he will become a puppet of Ranil and anti-Sinhala/Buddhist gang. GSF’s own principles will be at cross-roads. GSF should also be extremely careful, as there are Tamil Tiger terrorists still trying to take revenge from him and put the blame on the government during the period of elections.

GSF should calm down at this stage and should not do anything that will down-grade him. President Mahinda Rajapakse has not done anything seriously wrong, to replace him after first term in office. In fact, he has done a marvelous job as the Commander in Chief, commanding to the victory one of most difficult tasks faced by Sri Lanka, that is elimination of terrorism. GSF should remain with those who gave him the opportunity to prove his leadership and skills. Our President needs leaders such as GSF. If there are many more GSF’s , it will benefit Sri Lanka. More than anything else, GSF must know that loyalty is vital for long term relationship with the President.

Dear General Sarath Fonseka, Lets forget the minor differences, please save your valuable life and family and continue to contribute to the enhancement of the lives of Sri Lankans. Long term loyalty, will eventually bring you to the highest place, which you so richly deserve.

    Its indeed a real tragedy that GSF has totally forgotten who gave him such a power to stage the war to GSF’s whims and fancies of course with the correct guidence & leadership of Def Sec.
    If MR extended Army Commander Kottegoda and not exctend SF’s period DSF would have been a ZERO & not HERO. Its his utter foolishness and selfishness that made ruined his mentality to claim that it was ONLY SARATH FOSEKA WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VICTORY.
    Thge questions he must ask himself are:
    1) What if he was not given the extension by MR?
    2) What if SF did not get all the man power and arms power from the Govt?
    3) What if MR succumbed to International preasure and stopped the war?
    4) What if MR could not get UN’s resolution against SL and created another resolution in favour of SL thru MR’s diplomatic approach of foreign members?

    If GSF has an IOTA OF A BRAIN,its not too late to join the Govt that made him a HERO by way of requesting & accepting a Ministerial portfollio as suggested by above writer.
