    Are we talking about a potential dictator with a two thirds majority in parliament? in which case the term dictatorship is not only inapplicable but also irrelevant, relative to the concept of a people power uprising which sounds more like an opposition party conceived conspiracy that needs to be laid to rest. This Sunday Times poll needs to be trashed as it could be cooked up and an apparent fomention of minority dissent and dangerous incitement. Its instigators need to be indicted and prosecuted.Sri Lanka has had enough violence and uprisings to last a milennium of generations and the peace prevailing should never be usurped through the agendas of disgeuntled politicians.
    Long Live The Rajapaksa Regime! and down with the Infidels who try to undermine it with special mention of the JVP , UNP! and pro Sarath Fonseka agitators!

    I’m sure the government understands this. MR was a big time organizer of people powered campaigns since 1980s.

    Do what the people love and people will protect you.

    HUDSON !!! Why the ambiguity ? Are you referring to His Excellency, Mahinda Rajapakse as a potential Dictator ? You are a Professor, so use the language that people can understand and comprehend. Please talk straight. It appears to me that the very Caption, is a ploy to instigate turmoil, among the masses, against the Incumbent President. This country has very many Sick People, and you are about to join those patients.

    Many people who call themselves Professors of Sri Lankan descent, became servile to LTTE, over-night, to wag their lizard Tongues, against their conscience for a free flow of never ending Green Dollars in exchange for lies and deception, as was programmed by the LTTE. Prostitiuting Character, Morality, and an ounce of decency, was not an impediment, to collect the Wads of notes. So, now it is clear that you too, is wagging you tail for your supper.

    Please remember that the food you put on the family table, for your Wife and Children, does not come with the blessings from up above. ”so who cares you would say ”. That is the start of degenerating of a society.

    It is my point of view, that His Excellency with his Perso Plus, stands tall over any Politician who attempts to feel that he can match him, but will never attempt to, for lack of morale and confidence. Dictators do not go and get mixed up with common folk on the streets, have conversations with them, go for walks with Seniors competing to keep up with health. Dictators do not go into Temples, Kovils, Churches very freely and participate in the days religious rituals. Dictators hardly get out of their HOME DOMAIN, with attached fears.

    I have never seen any negative attributes displayed by the President, to be a DICTATOR, or a Dictator in the making. If all the Nation People Love him, then He stands TALL. The People are with him. Oh ! so this may be the reason why he is know as a potential Dictator, because the People Love him, and He is with the People. Those vying for his Position, cannot get anywhere close to him. So in anger and frustration, the say HE is a potential Dictator.

    As I see, His Excellency The President, Mahinda Rajapakse has no one to match him as a Statesman. If there is any, they are miles away trying to catch up. Mahinda Rajapakse is a Versatile Man, a Charismatic Man, who can Dine with the Kings, yet walk with the Beggars, and not lose the common touch. IS SUCH A MAN A DICTATOR ?

    Yes, to the Eyes of the beholder, who is Brain Dead, and will never realise it. Just now ROYALIST RANIL and his STREET GANG PROTESTERS, and Somavansa with his FUNERAL GANG WAR DRUMMERS, should fall into the BRAIN DEAD CATEGORY.

    My advice to this Brain Dead Category, is that they should realise that NO APPROVAL is needed for a PEOPLE POWER UPRISING. It has already taken place without their knowledge. MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE’S POWER IS THE PEOPLES POWER UPRISING. Still these Brain Dead people wants People to “” OUST POTENTIAL DICTATORS””

    This is a Cavalry call for Mahinda Rajapakse’s PEOPLES POWER to put to sleep the Brain Dead Potential Dictators once and for all.

    INCITING PEACE MEAL VIOLENCE ALL OVER SRI LANKA, HAS TO BE STOPPED BY THE ARMY. PEOPLE ARE TAKING LIBERTY TO HARM UNIFORMED POLICE, AND MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES, IN THE GUISE OF PEOPLE POWER UPRISING. THIS IS UTTERLY DEMORALISING TO THE MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM. IN USA, IF ANY ONE TOUCHES A POLICE OFFICER, THATS IT. STREET GANGSTERISM AND FUNERAL WAR LORDS HAVE TO BE STOPPED ON THE TRACKS BY THE BULLET….LITERALLY OR METAPHORICALLY.

    What is the readership of this newspaper?

    Of that readership what is the % of Indian colonial parasite?

    I am sure the learnered writer has worked out these before posting.

    Dear Professor
    “People power uprising to oust potential dictators?” Yes it is a great idea. But first it should apply to American and British lap dogs such as feudalist dictators of Saudi, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and UAE. As long as Anglo Americans allowed making maximum profit on Arab’s hydrocarbon resources, those dictators are good boys to Washington, London and Paris. Even a person with iota of brain understands this basic hypocrisy. This is a naked hypocrisy by Obama, Hillary Clinton, David Cameron and Sarkozy.
    Will your C.I.A or Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama or London, Paris, Rome and Ottawa gangsters ready to organize a secret mission for democracy in Saudi or Qatar or UAE similar to Iraq or Libya?
    Dear Professor! what about a “Peoples power to uprising to oust Feudalist rulers in U.K, Norway, Holland, Belgium, Sweden and Japan. How come state leaders appointed by a feudalist families by themselves label as democratic countries. If the true peoples power then that feudalism also scrap soon. How come power pass from feudalist woman Elizabeth to her son Charles and then to Harry. This is out-dated15th Century feudalism. Setup example and Westerners must clean their feudalist garbage from their house.
