Why Ranil is unfit to be Prime Minister  
Posted on December 8th, 2014

H. L. D. Mahindapala

 Maithripala Sirisena’s MOU, marketed as his cure-all plan for the  future, is very high on rhetoric and pie-in-the-sky promises and very low and vague on specifics or their ability to deliver the promises. Even a cursory glance will reveal that the MOU has promised castles in the air which will remain there forever because  Sirisena and his two main partners, CBK and Wickremesinghe, have neither the ability nor the political means to bring them down to earth.

 Put another way, this trio is trying desperately to sell old wine in old bottles with new labels. Though they were supposed to signal a new direction  for  the nation there wasn’t a single new face at Vihara Maha Devi Park with a single new idea. Despite all the ballyhoo and blandishments, the MOU is nothing more than a dreary  collection of clichés put together by the same-old political failures who have no credible alternative to challenge the unmistakable achievements of Mahinda Rajapakse.

 Second, the promises in the MOU have been deliberately reduced to the minimum to avoid running into controversial and contradictory issues that would crack open the differences and throw the signatories apart. All the critical issues and the specifics have been left out, knowing that the cart drawn by CBK-Wickremesinghe-Sirisena would disintegrate overnight if they went into the larger national issues or any details of even the promises in the MOU. 

 For instance, it focuses on the  constitution without mentioning a word about the most controversial constitutional issue : 13 A. Why? If they included  13A it  would  rip them apart. They know that there is no unity/consensus on  this central issue facing the nation. Such issues are too hot to handle. So the MOU has been pared down to bare bones in order to present a deceptive front of unity which the Opposition has calculated to be the only means of defeating the  Rajapakse regime.

 But the reality is that the contradictions pushed under the MOU carpet have the potential to erupt any time tearing  the coalition into bits. The MOU consists of irreconcilable forces which the center cannot hold together for long.  That is also the common history of coalitions. Either this coalition will go the same way that propped up Gen. Fonseka for  a short while,  or it will crumble under the weight of  its own contradictions.

 Right now, however, the clear, single-minded objective of the Opposition  is to pursue expedient and vindictive politics and not a constructive program for the growth, peace, security and territorial integrity of the nation which has been the foundation of the politics of Mahinda Rajapakse. No doubt, there are many structural weaknesses in the Mahinda Rajapakse regime which even those in the government ranks accept. But in terms of historical progress, in terms  of laying the foundations for a new future, in terms of burying the violent past,  in terms  of showing new directions both in internal and external affairs,  in terms of  protecting the nation from external and internal enemies,  there has  not  been government in the post-independent era to surpass the achievements of the Rajapakse brothers.

 There is nothing in the MOU which can match or hope to achieve anything greater than what Mahinda Rajapakse has achieved in the broader sense. Without having any higher goals than those achieved by Mahinda Rajapakse, the petty nit-pickers who drafted the MOU have gone for abstract promises that will keep them floating for a short while in the Never-Never land.

 The raft of slogans raised for democracy, rule  of law, law and order, easing of communal tensions, justice, human rights etc., are cries that can be raised against any democratic state. Even against President Obama – the Nobel Peace Prize winner who has killed children, imprisoned innocent citizens in Guantanamo Bay without trial for years, tortured suspected enemies of prisoners in other countries to make American look clean (rendition), slaughtered peaceful guests at wedding parties, and also the old and  young and even patients in hospitals – all of which add up to more than all the war crimes and crimes against humanity piled up by Bush.

 It must also be conceded that there is room for improvement in any system. There is room for improvement even in the Mahinda Rajapakse regime – and he  would be the first person to admit  it. What is more, working for internal reforms has been the eternal law governing all states. That is the acceptable norm of any vibrant  democracy. But working for regime change without having a stable and viable alternative should be regarded as one of the political crimes against citizens because the unmanageable consequences that follow invariably end in chaos, victimizing  the very people who initiated the changes. Example: the Arab spring”.

 Wittingly or unwittingly, the joint opposition is proposing in essence a local Arab Spring” which they cannot  manage – not with the rival parties in the coalition competing with each other for a greater share of  power and pressing for their specific demands to keep the gun powder in their political guns dry to fire at the next election.

 The contradictions and tensions created by the competing parties within the All-Party government will make any proposed government  ungovernable. Wickremesinghe, who is supposed to be the prime minister, will be in a dizzying spin not knowing  how to appease the dog-eating-dog politics in his Cabinet. The number of ministers he  needs to appoint for him to just stay in power is likely to pass  all known records because he will have to appease all those coming in to prop up his government. Each  one of them will be demanding his/her  share of the limited cake at the expense of the other. Consequently, his proposed two-year government will be run by the numerous parties which even Sirisena could not name at press interviews.

 But here comes the crunch: Wickremesinghe has established a unique global record for  his  failure to either lead his party to victory or to hold them together. His greatest skill so far has been in driving people away rather than  keeping them together. One need not be an astrologer to predict that his Ach-cha-ru Cabinet” is most likely to collapse when he starts distributing the ministries, greasing the palms of each MP crossing over, and fulfilling the secret IOUs. In all probability, the life span of the proposed All-Party government is not likely to be more than a bottle of French wine  placed in front CBK.

 It is clear that the framers of the MOU limited the time span to two years because they know that  it is unlikely to last that long. That is why they have agreed to go their own ways after two years. All this means, that the over-all  mission of the MOU is only to target the Rajapakse regime and replace it with Wickremesinghe, who could not and cannot win power on his own steam.

 Picking Wickremesinghe as the man  to restore democracy is a fatal flaw. He was picked by Sirisena not for any charismatic leadership qualities, or for his  vote-wining capability but purely because the UNP still has the largest vote bank in the opposition. It is purely a tactical maneuver.

 The inherent defect in his politics is his inability to read or be with the zeitgeist – the spirit of the times. Only a leader who can gauge the minds of the people can  win the trust of the people. But some bitter streak in him makes him the kind of imbecilic prawn-head who would decry, at the height of a successful military campaign, the capture of Toppigala as piece of worthless rock. People who identified themselves  with the glorious  victories, all the way from Mavil Aru to Nandikadal, have never forgiven him for  his cynical  condemnation of our heroic soldiers. This is one of the outstanding examples of his inability to read the spirit of the times.

 His knack of stabbing himself with his loose tongue has cost him the best prizes in politics. His ideological fixations leaning towards the West – plus his inability to relate to people – has disconnected him from the grass root forces that determine the fate of leaders. Alienated from  the people, rejected by his  party as a credible leader, and having lost his place as a national leader who can be trusted to lead the nation in times of war and peace, he has been living in a political limbo waiting for the rotten fruit of power to drop on his lap. Today he can only bask in the glory of outsiders. He is a nominal leaders who has the capacity only to follow other leaders.

 What is more, how can a man  who has failed to win the trust of the people over and over again – 29 times – be picked to be the flag-carrier for democracy?

 Democracy is all about winning the trust of the people. More  than any other political system democracies are built on the trust placed by the people in their leaders and the leaders in their people.  No democracy can be established or made to function effectively without winning the trust of people. The dynamic principle that sustains and  drives democracies is the trust placed by the people in their elected representatives to run the state. So on what rational logic can Sirisena  hand over power to resuscitate democracy to a man who had lost the trust of the people in 29 elections  in a row? Wickremesinghe has neither won the trust of the people nor his own party. Isn’t it a gross betrayal of democratic principles to hand over power not given  by the people to a man who can’t even relate to the people?

 Sirisena’s proposal to hand over power to Wickremesinghe to restore democracy is worse than handing over the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama who had engaged in destroying peace ever since. What is worse Wickremesinghe has not even won the trust of his party, let alone the people. They don’t trust  him even to be their presidential candidate. To begin with, his own party sacked him when Deaf and Blind” Wijetunga appointed him as prime minister. Gamini Dissanayake walked straight into Temple Trees and tossed him out with ease, without so much as a peep from him. 

 The next humiliation was even greater. CBK, her buddy now, sacked him when he was having a chat with Bush at the White House. She sacked him because he was selling the nation  down the river to Prabhakaran. So on what democratic, moral, or political principles have Sirisena decided to hand over power to man  who has lost the trust of the people, his party and the other  political leaders who have refused to back him as the common candidate?

 This arbitrary act of Sirisena to appoint an unelected prime minister is a perversion of accepted democratic principles. Sirisena’s anti-democratic act is in reality is an insult to the people. It is just the opposite of what the Opposition says it wants to achieve. How can Sirisena   restore dignity to the people when he appoints a man unwanted by the people? It is a political fraud that condemns those who claim to be champions of democracy aiming to restore democracy.

 Besides, what democracy will hand over power to a leader who has betrayed the will of the people by handing over their sacred territory to the enemies of the nation? Second, what guarantee is there that he will not reverse the national trends put in place with the blood, sweat and tears of the self-sacrificing people? CBK-Wickremesinghe combo is noted for their anti-national policy of handing over territory and/or powers to the  Tamil Tigers, and now to their surrogates in the TNA. Furthermore, has Sirisena calculated the possible reactions of the Security Forces and the people at large when CBK-Wickremesinghe duo begins to dismantle and reverse the foundations laid by the Rajapakses to secure the nation against internal and external enemies?

 Consider also the other promises made in the MOU. Neither CBK nor Wickremesinghe brought down the cost of living when they were in power. How are they going to do it this time? Wickremesinghe did not hesitate to deport Paul Harris, the correspondent of the Jane’s Weekly and Daily Telegraph, for exposing the biggest land sale to the Tigers. Is this the man who is going to defend media freedom?

 Wickremesinghe’s loyalties have been to Bush, Blair and Cameron. It is his  loyalty to West that has lost the loyalty of the people. He is struggling hard to win back the trust he lost by going through contrived motions of being a Sinhala-Buddhist patriot. But  the people are not buying it because they know that his  heart is with Cameron and the Right-wing politics of the West.

 This also means that when JVP and JHU support Wickremesinghe they are lending their support to the anti-Sri Lankan Western forces of Cameron and Michele Sisson. Needless, to say that CBK is forever ready to clink wine glasses with Sisson in their  common bid to overthrow Mahinda Rajapakse.

 But to their dismay Asia Mirror, quoting unnamed Opposition sources,  reported that Mahinda Rajapakse still leads by 60-40.  That apart, it is the  post-election scenario they envisage that is fraught with danger. They are banking on Sirisena winning  the election without realizing that  they are partners in the crime of destabilizing the nation.

 If the wishes of Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Champika Ranawake, CBK, Sisson, TNA etc are to come true then Maithripala Sirisena will have to remove D. M. Jayaratne, the current  Prime Minister who still commands a majority in the House. Right now Wickremesinghe does not command a majority in  the House to be prime minister. For Sirisena  to achieve his goal there  has  to be a mass exodus from the Government benches  to the opposition. For this to happen he will have to offer ministerial posts and  mega-millions practically to each and every MP, most of whom are already Ministers of one sort or another in a jumbo cabinet. So to install and prop up Wickremesinghe as his Prime Minister Sirisena will have to begin by bribing the likely MPs willing to crossover on an unprecedented scale. Is this how he proposes to begin his regime of  purity?

 There is no doubt that if by any chance he wins, the nation will run into unchartered territories of uncertainty and chaos. Whether he can manage a critically fluid situation, with unreliable partners in  his  coalition of convenience, is anybody’s guess.  

 The thriving business community in particular should be wary of neither-here-nor-there politics of a heaven  on earth promised by the Opposition. Their future depends on peace, stability and continuity. But one thing will be certain: the  unstable situation will  force Sirisena to engage in corrupt deals, just to stay in power along with his prime minister, Wickremesinghe.

 So, after promising to be the Greatest Saint of Purity, can Sirisena make any difference to Sri Lankan politics?

    MAHINDAPALA !! You said it all, I would not say in a nut shell, but a wake up call to the THREE MUSTARD BRAINS, MY3, Runil, and Chandrika.

    YOU SAID ” Furthermore, has Sirisena calculated the possible reactions of the Security Forces, and the people at large when CBK-Wickramasinghe duo begins to dismantle and reverse the foundations laid by the Rajapakses, to secure the Nation against internal and external enemies ” If these three imbeciles do not understand with their mustard brains, the wrath that would be released by the Forces and the people at large, to any despicable unpatriotic moves, that can lead to mass resentment and mayhem, they are in for a confrontation of risking their lives. MY3 thinks that as he wins, he will be Commanding Chief. It will take minutes and hours to attain that title. At this time Loyalties will remain between the cup and the lip. The three clowns will not be able to control the formidable release of human feeling.

    IT IS A SHAME THAT RUNIL IS AWAITING LIKE A STARVING FOX TO EAT THE FALL OUTS FROM THE TABLE.

    IT IS BETRAYAL OF THE LOWEST FORM FOR MY3 TO ACT AS A CUT-THROAT, AS THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE SLFP, TO HAND OVER THE MANTLE OF PRIME MINISTER, TO RUNIL OF THE UNP, WHO HAS BEEN LOSING THE ELECTION FOR 29 YEARS, AND WHO HAS NO MANDATE TO ILLEGALLY ACCEPT IT FROM A TRAITOR OF THE COUNTRY.

    AS FOR CHANDRIKA, HER FACE REFLECTS THE VULTURE IN HER.

    If they included 13A it would rip them apart, Such issues are too hot to handle !
    end of the day our Tamils issue is more important than anything else in SL.
    most of ,no all of sinhala writers in this forum say We do not have Tamil problem – some thing wrong some where !!!

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    So do you mean DM JAYARATNA is more suitable than Run-nil to be the PM in the interim (until 2016 election elects a more suitable one)?

    I don’t think so.

    You should read more about DMJ’s son’s involvement in certain activities.

    And look at the Buddha Sasana in the country? Has he done anything of note being the minister?

    Gomin is now having an IMPOSSIBLE WET DREAM of a Unity Government between avowed Patriots and avowed anti-nationalist puppets of Foreign Forces, to wit:

    “A coalition between the two major parties of Sri Lanka [UPFA of Mahinda Rajapakse & UNP of Ranil, Karu and Sajith] is a compelling need to keep a disoriented economy, muddled foreign affairs and a divisive TNA in their proper places.”

    “Ranil as Prime Minister with Rajapakse as President will automatically bring the 2/3 majority to restructure the constitution.”

    This could not be achieved at the HEIGHT of the WAR OF LIBERATION of our Motherland from Separatist Terror when “Pamankada not Alimankada” was the MOCKING REPLY; why should it be different now?

    This is an IMPOSSIBLE WET DREAM that would give birth to a HUNG GOVERNMENT DIVIDED WITHIN ITSELF that would be INCAPABLE of ACCOMPLISHING ANYTHING to PROTECT, DEFEND and GROW the Nation!

    This is a PRESCRIPTION for NATIONAL SUICIDE!

    This is the MAIN ISSUE, the ELEPHANT in the ROOM if you will, facing the Nation, and attention is DIVERTED AWAY from it by IRRELEVANT Red Herrings served up as the Common Candidates’s “Election Platform”!

    Are you talking about the MR camp or the My3 camp?

    MR camp has totally gone silent on 13.

  8. Ananda-USA Says:

    The 13th Amendment will disintegrate the Nation into communal fiefdoms with Muslims asking for a Separate EXCLUSIVE MUSLIM Fiefdom in the Eastern Province to match the Separate EXCLUSIVE TAMIL Fiefdom in the North!

    It is ABOUT TIME the UPFA GOSL REJECTED India’s DEMANDS, REPEALED the 13th Amendment TOTALLY, DISSOLVED the Provincial Council System, and replaced Provincial Councils with Districts Administered directly by the GOSL through APPOINTED Government Agents.

    India will ACCEPT REPEAL of the 13A in preference to the EMERGENCE of an EXCLUSIVE Muslim Province in the East. India MUST BE MADE to UNDERSTAND tat the latter prospect is FAR WORSE for its security than any benedfit it gets, if at all, from the EMERGENCE of an EXCLUSIVE Tamil Northern Province.

    DO IT FAST andd DO IT NOW before a Billary Clinton Administration emerges in the USA in 2016 to make all such moves INFINITELY HARDER!

    Rauff Hakeem in no man’s land: Bathiudeen’s pledges support to MR Both camps reject SLMC’s key demand

    By The Nation
    Sunday, 07 December 2014

    The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress, the largest Muslim parties in Parliament, led by Minister Rauff Hakeem, is now in a dilemma on the stance they should take at the forthcoming presidential election, highly placed political sources told ‘The Nation’.

    The All Ceylon Muslim Congress, led by Minister Rishad Bathiudeen, has pledged support to President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the presidential election. .However, a senior spokesman of the party, who spoke to The Nation on the condition of anonymity, said the party would officially announce its decision next week – probably on Monday or Tuesday.He confirmed that the party’s decision, in all probability, would be in favour of President Rajapaksa.

    It was earlier speculated that Minister Bathiudeen’s party would extend its support to common candidate Maithripala Sirirsena with three members of his party, representing the Eastern Provincial Council, becoming independent. Amir Ali, One of the ACMC members who became independent, has now accepted a national list MP position from the government.

    Meanwhile, it is also learnt that the ACMC’s decision on the presidential election will also affect the final decision of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress – which still hangs in the balance on the matter.ACMC is the second largest Muslim party in the Parliament.

    It has now been revealed that Minister Rauff Hakeem, Leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress, has held discussions with top rung leaders of the common opposition including the opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe
    However, Common candidate of the opposition Maithripala Sirisena and opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe have decided to reject Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Leader Rauff Hakeem’s demand for a separate administrative for Muslims in the East. The same proposal has already been rejected by the UPFA government and that was one reason why the SLMC went on to hold discussions with the common opposition.

    A separate administrative district for Muslims has been a key demand of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress in the recent past.

    Whatever the decision the SLMC makes on the election, it would not be in a get its main demand from either of the parties, political sources told ‘The Nation’ on Saturday. But, ‘The Nation’ learns that the SLMC leadership is under heave pressure from its own rank and file to step out of the government and extend its support to the common opposition.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    Good work My3.

    REJECT these racist demands. Don’t stoop to low levels to win votes.

    The truth is WITH OR WITHOUT SLMC, Muslims are going to vote for My3.

    IF SLMC wants to remain RELEVENT, join My3. Otherwise in the upcoming general election, UNP will get all Muslim votes leaving nothing for SLMC.

    ACMC joined govt. because govt. gave AZWAR’S seat to ALI. Ali is from ACMC. Opportunists! MR is crazy have these snakes with him.

  10. ranjit Says:

    Why Ranil is unfit to be the PrimeMinister because he is nothing but a gay boy A man who has lost 29 times and all saw what he did during the war and how he signed and handed over our beautiful nation to the terrorists. He is not fit for anything except to be as Opposition leader for another 100 years. He is a man for himself. He should have married Chandrika not that lady Preethi or someone because they were both same category with no personality.

  11. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    YES ANANDA !! IT IS SCARY TO THINK OF. WE JUST DONT KNOW THE PEOPLES MINDS.

  12. Vimutti Says:

    Lorenzo,

    We all know the Muslim demand rejection is the same BS Ranil/Maithripala is pulling with the TNA and same trick Fonseka tried to do in 2010 – promise separatism in private to try to get their vote and then publicly opposing separatism to not lose any Buddhist votes.

    WE AIN’T THAT STUPID!

    As RANJIT said above, we already know how Ranil behaved when he had power before (2001-2004) when he was trying to divide the country into separate states, so there is nothing he or his front-guy (Maithripala) is going to say that will change that perception among most Buddhist voters that he is simply a lackey of the US, UK, and Norway, who seeks to dive the country and not someone who will act in the best interests of Sri Lanka.

  13. Sunil Mahattaya Says:

    This well compiled Item By Mr.HLDM probably needs to be translated into Sinhala and posterd on all community newspapers and newssites posting information in Sinhala as it carries a very detailed as well as accurate analysis of why Sri Lankans need to cast their vote prudently and who the best candidate for the job really is.
    There are many propaganda campaigns by the opposition in Sinhala which consist mostly of mudslinging rhetoric and “pie in the sky ‘ pipedreams of the aspiring de-throners of the present Administration where this item circulated in Sinhala to reach places distanced from English speaking environments could prove to be greatly helpful for the present Administration which undoubtedly is the best choice for carrying the Nation into the future with the best available leader in charge from many perspectives both domestic as well as global.

  14. Ananda-USA Says:

    Briefly, I gather from the Letter of Resignation of Tissa Attanayake from the UNP, that he resigned because:

    1. The Malik-Ravi-Mangala group gutted his position, and his ability to function, as UNP General Secretary,

    2. The Common Candidate is not a UNP Party leader committed to UNP’s political agenda and acceptable to rank-and-file party members,

    3. The 3 Conditions in the Agreement to back Maithripala Sirisena as the Common Candidate negotiated by the Malik-Ravi-Mangala group, to wit

    3.1 Upon Maithripala Sirisena being elected as Executive President, he would within 24 hours appoint Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister and transfer the Executive Powers of the Presidency to the Prime Minister and his Cabinet of Ministers.

    3.2 Maithripala Sirisena would be accepted and named as the Common Candidate upon bringing with him 20-25 UPFA members, defecting the Common Opposition.

    3.3 Maithripala Sirisena would revise the Constitution completely, and abolish the Executve Presidency within 100 days.

    have already been violated in that Maithripala Sirisena did not bring 20-25 defectors, and, therefore, should not have been named the Common Candidate.

    4. After winning the Executive Presidency, Maitripala Sirisena and the JHU ship-jumpers INTEND to create a new political party of THEIR OWN, outside the UNP, viloating UNP expectations and creating another split within the Common Opposition, and not giving the UNP the benefit of the defectors from the SLFP!

    This letter CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES to me THREE THINGS:

    1. The EXTENT of the MONUMENTAL TREACHERY committed by the Maithripala Sirisena in agreeing in SECRET to GUT the Constitution of the Nation and hand over the nation to its AVOWED enemies that he had fought against as an SLFP party member for 47-years!

    Does this STUPID Common Candidate DESERVE our TRUST?

    2. The EXTENT of the INTERNECINE FACTIONAL INFIGHTING, CORROSIVE ROT & DECAY within the UNP itself. This does not begin to touch the issue of MINORITY INTERESTS with the UNP that TIME & AGAIN PREVENTS the UNP from adequately PROTECTING & DEFENDING the Nation.

    Does this FRACTURED United National Party DESERVE our TRUST?

    3. The Common Opposition is “Common” in name only, its FRACTURING into MORE opposing camps within itself, is ALREADY UNDERWAY!

    What an UNHOLY Alliance and Three-Ring-Circus of Untrustworthy Bunglers!

  15. Lorenzo Says:

    Vimutti,

    Look at the WHOLE picture, not parts.

    1. Who drafted the govt. part of the CFA and called LTTE leaders your excellency? GLP. Where is he now? The foreign minister!
    2. Who else signed a MOU with LTTE? Hackhim. Where is he now? Justice minister!
    3. When was RW’s CFA ended? In 2004 when UPFA won? NO. In 2005 when MR won? NO. Many many years later in 2008.
    4. Karuna Amman also took part in “peace talks” from the LTTE. Where is he now? A deputy minister!
    5. KP also took part in discussions from the LTTE. Where is he now? With the govt.
    6. CWC Thonda also signed a MOU with LTTE. Where is he now? A senior minister!

    So can you trust one over the other? No. They are one and the same.

    EXCEPT RW, how many CFA traitors in the UNP? NONE!

    How many CFA traitors in the UPFA? 5!

    If you understand the difference 1:5 you will know who is who. This is what happens when you put a person above the nation. For me, the nation ALWAYS comes first. I would NEVER appoint GLP, Hackhim, Thonda, KA, KP as ministers, etc.

    FYI, they have NOT cancelled their MOUs with the LTTE and KP still is the LTTE leader!

  16. Independent Says:

    Lorenzo,
    Although not in the same category of “traitors”, we must also remind ourselves how “war crimes” = “new beggar’s wound” is created.
    1. Soon after the war M.r Ban Kee Moon was invited by the president to visit Sri Lanaka.
    2. President signed a MOU with Mr. Ban , agreeing to a internal war crime investigation.
    3. When he broke the promise , Mr. Ban appointed his own Wiratman panel
    4. Panicking, he created this big blunder of LLRC group of traitors, without consulting ANY of the patriots in the government. This itself is an unrepairable damage to our country, since LLRC traitors recommendations include recognition of false Tamil claims, devolution to Tamils and all other nonsense. Now the country his brothers have taken refuge, USA leads asking us to implement these recommendations.
    Soon after this election LLRC recommendations WILL BE IMPLEMENTED

    5. Then he sneakily appointed his own “war Crime ” commission inviting foreigners using his enormous powers without consulting ANY patriots within the government. ( As you said he is surrounded by Tritons).

    Fed up, when all the patriots left the government those patriots became Traitors and Traitors became Patriots

    Can anyone in this forum deny any of these FACTS ?

  17. Lorenzo Says:

    An EXCELLENT point Independent!

    In addition to LLRC traitors (appointed by us), look at the international panel appointed by MR! They have a history of prosecuting people!

    But are you thinking what I’m thinking? It is SCARIER than that! Hint: Gonzeka.

    This war crimes thing is WORSE than a beggar’s wound. It is a TRAP! OMG!

    Dear patriots, wake up! So that is why the election is held 2 years early and the JHU is FURIOUS!

    The President has appointed the following three eminent persons of international repute to serve on an Advisory Council to the Commission of Inquiry:

    Rt Hon Sir Desmond de Silva, QC, (Chairman) is a world authority on the law of armed conflict. He was personally picked by Kofi Annan, the last Secretary General of the United Nations, to be the Chief Prosecutor of a UN sponsored international criminal court.

    Sir Desmond commands a large legal practice in London and for 25 years was the head of one of London’s oldest sets of Chambers once headed by the legendary Sir Dingle Foot, QC. Having followed in the distinguished legal footsteps of his father and grandfather, Sir Desmond was Knighted by The Queen in 2007 for his extraordinary contribution to International Law.

    In 2011, he was made a Member of Her Majesty’s Privy Council. His wide practice has, over the past decade, involved cases that concerned States, Heads of States and Heads of Governments.

    The British Government in 2010, appointed him to chair a highly sensitive Review into the British Security Services and their conduct in Northern Ireland during the conflict between the IRA and the British forces.

    Professor Sir Geoffrey Nice, QC, (Member) is the Gresham Professor of International Law in London. He was the lead Prosecutor in the case of the late President Milosevic of Serbia at The Hague.

    Professor David Crane (Member) was personally picked by Kofi Annan to be the Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone. Crane was responsible for the indictment, arrest and prosecution of President Charles Taylor of Liberia who is currently serving 50 years imprisonment for war crimes.

    I BEG you to consider the above FACT. Ban me if you will but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE think.

    I have to rush to the toilet. I’m seriously in PANIC.

    The panel we have appointed is ALL pro-UK, pro-US war crimes prosecutors!!

    They are here to butcher our heroes.

    “I have to rush to the toilet. I’m seriously in PANIC.”

    A man in PANIC needs to attend to calls of nature! When you GOTTA GO, GO!

    Lorenzo,
    I smelled this recently and asked few questions from Dharmasiri yesterday.

    මගේ හැඟීම හැටියට ඔබ මේ භයානක තත්වය සම්පූර්නයෙන්ම වරදවා ගෙන ඇත​.
    අතිගරු ජනාධිපති තුමා ඇමරිකාවෙන් ආ සැනෙකින් පෝප් හමුවෙන්න ගියේ ඇයි ?
    ඉන් අනතුරුව මැතිවරණයක් දැම්මේ ඇයි ?
    ඊට පසු ඉන්දියාවට ගියේ ඇයි ?
    මේ කාලයේ ම ගෝඨාභය ඉන්දියාවට ගියේ ඇයි ?
    ඉන්දියාවේ ආරක්‍ෂක ලේකම් ලංකාවට ආවේ ඇයි ?

    මේ පිටිපස විසාල කුමන්ත්‍රනයක් ඇත​.

    There is no danger to President because he doesn’t know any details of planning , execution, intelligence , change of plans and rescheduling etc etc , . It is the army commander who gave the 1st order. at or below that level any one can be prosecuted.

    We are begging but LOVE IS BLIND !

  21. Independent Says:

    JHU, My3 gave assurance that they will protect ALL WAR VETERANS ,the President and his brother.

    Time has come for Patriots to demand such an undertaking from the President. This appeal is really urgent. We cannot take thing for granted. No harm demanding this anyway.

  22. Lorenzo Says:

    Independent,

    Now the MR camp is AVOIDING the issue!

    My friend Ananda only picks the funny bit and avoids the serious bit.

    What happened to SERBIA, SIERRA LEONE, will happen to SL now with these pro-US butchers.

  23. Independent Says:

    Lorenzo,
    This is the most serious issue.
    But solution is simple. Just ask him for this undertaking. Once he has given this pledge he can’t take it back.

    He can always give the new badge to the war veterans called “TRAITOR”. Before all these heroes will be made “ENEMIES of THE STATE” using media. Then the handover will come.

  24. Lorenzo Says:

    SL needs a proper Buddhist leader not a Hindu leader. He should be going to Sri Dalada Maligawa instead. This is a disgrace to Buddhist SL.

    “Tight security arrangements are made in the temple city of Tirupati ahead of the visit of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa who will be on a two-day pilgrimage starting Tuesday.

    According to Collector Siddharth Jain, the special flight carrying Mr. Rajapaksa and his entourage will be flying into the Renigunta airport at 4.30 pm, from where he will reach Tirumala hills by road. After offering prayers late in the evening and again participating in the pre-dawn ritual on Wednesday, he will motor down the hills by 8.15 am, reach airport by 9.30 am and fly back to Colombo.”

    -The Hindu.

  25. Vimutti Says:

    >>> Wickremesinghe’s loyalties have been to Bush, Blair and Cameron. It is his loyalty to West that has lost the loyalty of the people. He is struggling hard to win back the trust he lost by going through contrived motions of being a Sinhala-Buddhist patriot. But the people are not buying it because they know that his heart is with Cameron and the Right-wing politics of the West.<<<

    Well that pretty much says it all!

    We also are going to get a release tomorrow of a report on the US CIA rendition and torture program of US terror suspects that Ranil facilitated through the airports here in Sri Lanka. It is supposed to be gruesome with some 10-year-olds being forced to hold two decapitated heads, anal penetration with broomsticks and power drills on sensitive body parts, etc.

    Do not see how Ranil can feel proud of any of this, as it makes Sri Lanka look terrible around the world as one of the countries that helped make this barbaric and illegal torture happen.

  26. SA Kumar Says:

    Ref: What happened to SERBIA, SIERRA LEONE, will happen to SL now with these pro-US butchers.

    the law of karma, says only this: `for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskilful

    MR ,time to pay your Mullivaikkal Karmam now !!!

  27. R.M.W Says:

    How can anyone forget the Classic one liner uttered by Wimal Weerawansa, when he was the Master speaker for the JVP, He declared and I quote
    “Ranil cannot get anything done properly” … Everyone held third breath for the punch line which was sure to follow.
    “Just asks His wife’ people were helplessly reeling with laughter.

  28. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !!! What is the similarity between a Cemetary and a Toilet ?

  29. Lorenzo Says:

    Dear RMW and SW,

    Why do you get side tracked avoiding the real issue we pointed out?

    Sir Desmond de Silva, Professor Sir Geoffrey Nice and Professor David Crane have been appointed to look into WAR CRIME allegations against out soldiers. They are NOT defence lawyers!! They are war crimes PROSECUTORS!!

    They are all PRO-UK western imperialist agents. Look at their past conduct.

  30. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    NO LORENZO !! I was with a smile when you had a panick attack from the posterior. Well since you have side tracked my question, the answer is:- WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO, YOU HAVE TO GO.

    Let them come, we will send them to Canal Row for Raal and Nandu feed.

  31. Lorenzo Says:

    Come on SW.

    It’s not my nature’s call that matter but the nation’s nature’s call. WHY did we appoint those people?

    Now there will be 2 anti-SL reports framing our soldiers.

  32. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    DONT WORRY LORENZO. THOSE BUGGERS ARE COMING HERE TO HAVE A NICE TIME. ALL THIS IS FUN FOR THOSE A***LES. ANYWAY WHO IS COMING TO TAK OUR SOLDIERS AWAY ? OR WHO IS GOING TO GIVE OUR SOLDIERS AWAY. WE WILL DEAL WITH THEM.
