Dilrook Kannangara is right-on when he says the president should avoid cheap popularity.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  At this stage of the game, the president doesnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t need to seek popularity, embracing people and kissing babies, and all kinds of public appearances in front of large crowds – even inside Temple Trees.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once. You will have to be lucky always.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” The IRA terrorists on the failure of their Brighton hotel bombing to kill British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The LTTE terrorists repeated the above and proved their word, not once, but many times over.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  So why are the people around the president – his security and his family, not able to convince the president about the danger?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The danger is not just from a human bombs, it can be a sniper, remember foreign minister Kadirgamar?.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Have we forgotten John Kennedy?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The LTTE international have the means and the contacts to get the worldƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s best, not just one, but even a dozen of the worldƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s best.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  At this stage of the game we shouldnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect the international community to be concerned about the safety of our President, just the opposite might be true.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ For instance, there was a serious breech of the presidentƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s security when he appeared on top of a rock in the middle of a vast jungle during his new-year visit to a temple in the South.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t forget John Kennedy in Dallas Texas!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ We appeal to the President:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-YOUR SAFETY IS NOT JUST YOUR CONCERN, IT IS THE CONCERN OF THE WHOLE NATIONƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚
