Out of place, opportunistic, ad hoc policies of the UNP bring death and more deaths.

Major General Janaka Perera, a gallant soldier, war hero, an illustrious
son of mother Lanka, had to die at the hands of cowards. When I say
cowards, they include political masters in Colombo, who used him to
pull chest nuts from the political fire. Dr Johnpulle, the Tamil physician
would have saved countless lives in his career. And not this time. So
many lives so precious are no more.
LTTE seems to have turned the gun on its southern ally which nurtured and sometimes, rescued them through a bogus peace process. UNP has been caught unawares and has been now reduced to the proverbial man who caught the tail of the tiger. It is a pity that the UNP top brains failed to do a proper threat assessment in the light of changing policies. Inconsistent, incoherent, out of place, ad hoc, opportunistic policies of the UNP have led and will lead to more deaths and destruction unless there is a clear change in direction for the sake of the country.
All those precious lives lost- may you attain supreme bliss of nibbhana!.
