ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ If theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ adage “two wrongs maketh no right” is applied to the equation of Former Army Commander Gen. Sarath FonsekaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ reaching out to ousted Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake to join forces with him towards forming a new political party and “toppling” what he calls “the dictatorial Rajapaksa regime” it would amount to nothing as both persons have too many proven shortcoming that disentitle their rights towards the leadership of the Nation in any given scenario.And the harder they try the deeper they will in all probabilities be mired in failure.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ This is a very plausible conclusion based mainly on the progress and development of Sri Lanka today after decades of Tamil Tiger terrorism and the term “dictatorial” seemsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a loose and worthless expression to describe a leader who governs with a will of steel, an unfettered sense of patriotism and the benefit of a two thirds majority backed by a greater percentage of Sri Lankans than those who oppose himƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ which seems to have locked in place his legacy as one of Sri Lanka’s greatest sons who has secured in an unprecedented manner what many thought impossible and if in the process of continuing to rebuild Sri Lanka in the ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ post insurgent aftermath he tends to overstep financial metes and bound and administers the nation with a trusted team there will obviously be criticism from his adversaries where perhaps he may need to apply caution to certain areas of the administration towards stabilizing the proper functioning of the nation which nonetheless could never be done to appease everybody. The moderation in which Sri Lanka functions today however may need some acceleration towards more progress in the eyes of many who still agree that the nation still is resplendent and will continue to progress towards posterity.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ This said on the consensus that there is a greater proportion of people within Sri lanka as well as around the world that agree in principle that what the Rajapaksa Adminitration has accomplished uptodate is phenomenal although there are still grey areas that need to be addressed and changed for the better including the dispensation of Law and Order and providing restitution for the impoverished towards the fullest concept of a free and democratic state. There are however very promising signs that these too will be addressed and that the Nation is on the road towards a stability that has not been known for decades and needs the input and supportƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ of all her citizens rather than the impure attempts of disgruntled and phased out former leaders still attempting to carve out an agenda that would benefit their ilk and in doing so resort to the vagaries of vapid rhetoric which will surely be of no interest to the people who believe and uphold the good the Nation has been bestowed uponƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  under the present leadership which will hopefully continue for a very long time.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ It seems easy for Gen Fonseka while addressing the media in Colombo very recently to say that” the ex-Chief Justice, like him, too had become a victim of the present regime and there were many more people in the same predicament as they. “Together we all can bring about the change needed in Sri Lankan politics. We can clean up this mess,” he said which seems rather high handed for someone whose attempts to snatch power and ursurp the present regime ended in failure as the majority of people did not trust him based on proven misgivings and irregularities for which he was indicted.In this sense there are commonalities between him and the former CJ whose excesses whilst in her capacity have been exposed and should consider herself fortunate that the Long Arm of Justice has not reached out to her in meting out punitive action which is probably a reflection of the magnanimity of the President although she is better off acting with caution as the deckƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  seems to be stacked heavily against her in the eyes of those who have presented a fairly tenable and proportionate dossier of wrongdoing during her tenure.Something to the tune of “misery loves company” by the Fonseka courtship evident here perhaps!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Gen. Fonseka seems to have admitted by his own reckoning that the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) had outlived its purpose ~ admission of it being farcial perhaps and to strive for what he terms “a new political forceƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ being necessary to take on the government effectively” sounds like famous last words of many with the same objective albeit hollow in perspective.
The pomposity with which he dares to suggest that ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ “The government is corrupt to the core and digging its own grave. With the increasing international isolation and the crisis at home, I will give this government two years. The UNP is useless. In this context, a new party should come to help the people.”ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  seemsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a mere reflection of the man’s ego based on what he believes is an appropriate time towards another turbulence which in all probabilities will never work in his favour particularly with his condemnation of the UNP which recently seems to have indicated a willingness to work with the Administration and in this sense the Fonseka jargon is just that, mere jargon which will be tantamount to little or nothing from a man whose transparencies are well known as a self centered idealogue with no tangible programme towards the betterment of the nation!
It seems laughable that he has used analogies such as Hitler, Marcos and Ghaddafi towards comparison with President Rajapaksa which portrays his ineptitude towards making judgements and shows him up as a blinkered and confused individual who also compounds the

portrayal of the CJ as someone dedicated to the masses when her actions during her tenure suggests that she was moreƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ focusedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ towards bettering the interests of those close to her rather than the masses and had set about acquiring material assets and uplifting the status of her husband in an official capacity.These do not sound like the objectives of someone patriotic or dedicated to the masses and how Fmr. Gen Fonseka arrived at this conclusion seems somewhat perplexing.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ He has also revealed another transparency ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ about himself which is damning and if he finds the term traitor in the context he has used in his epistle contentiousƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ he should take top billing for the title as the world knows the extent to which enemies of the nation are currently attempting to influence world powers towards dislodging and disrupting the present administration.His efforts towards this are also well knownƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ in addition to his open admission where in the face of all odds the Rajapaksa Administration will prevail simply because a greater part of the Nation is behind him and are able to identify the real traitors!

    “For losers in people’s jury (elections), democracy is dictatorship.”

    Humble Lorenzo.

    Get a life SF. You LOST badly. You had UNP, JVP, TNA, USA, EU, LTTE, India, GTF, BTF, CPA, NGOs, etc. but still lost.

    Tamils made you a hero in 2009 but PEOPLE made you a loser in 2010!

  2. Lorenzo Says:

    Two losers doesn’t make a winner!!!

    SF is now desperate after ALL his supporters (including Tiran, Arjuna, Nanda Silva) left him. He should form a party with canines.

  3. callistus Says:

    Mr Fonseka, where is your son in law Danuna Tillakaratne. You should have brought him back from hiding when Shirani was CJ,and she would have cleared him of all wrong doings.

  5. jay-ran Says:

    Your statement is more than 100% correct to say,Mr Fonseka,WHERE IS YOUR S-I-L Danuna who got many privilegges in his bids for ARMS IMPORT!!!

  6. AmericanMuse Says:

    Absolute power in the hands of a single person, or a family cabal, is fatal to the future of a nation and its people. We must not allow our own prejudices to collude with such malignant forces that now possess Sri Lanka.

  7. Kit Athul Says:

    AmericanMuse, If you gave your real name I could answer better, because I am an American. You British Colonial PUNK, using American to cover up. So far MR family has brought prosperity to SL. This is the way Sinhala Kings ruled the country. Tell me what is “Malignant forces”?

  8. ranjit Says:

    We should not waste time talking of those Garbage collectors like Ex Genaral ( he must worship the president for making him a General) CJ, Anura,Bahu’s, 3rd class Tom Pachaya Mangalaya etc Maybe SF likes the looks of CJ that’s why he is eyeing for her. let’s see their drama when it unfolds.

    All opposition goons have distanced from him even Arjuna so atleast now he must do is to stay at home,read a book “WAR & PEACE” and relax with his Ali Baba family. CJ also should do the same. She should be greatful to President for giving her the job while ignoring some seniors to her. These Tie-Coat Mangalayas do not like the way the sarong clad native boy runs our beloved homeland called SRI LANKA but two thirds of the majority likes so nobody on earth can do anything to oust him or his regime except by democratic vote and it will be in 5-6 years time. So these Golubellas have to wait till it happens. American Muse and all his para sudda friends have to go along with all mighty Rajapaksas because they are the most qualified politicians to run our beautiful nation which is Sri Lankan nation. They work hard,they go to the people,they listen to the people,they share the pain with the people and they solve the problems of the people not like those shedding tears for the para suddas. In my life time I have never seen progress like this to my beloved homeland. Visit and see for yourself the diffrence between then and now you saboteures and traitors to Mother Lanka. Mangalaya and the opposition liers will be burnt alive in hell for their crimes against our peoples and the land we called Sri Lanka.

  9. NAK Says:

    Shi-h rani and Sa-ra-th I am sure would have been looked after generoursly by those who scripted the drama. So would be the stage mangers such as Poikia,Perera,Sand anicut and the lot. So there was a big drama with a lot of noice (media only)and a few made their worth and the stage is waiting for the next show.

  10. cassandra Says:


    You are absolutely right. Absolute power in the hands of a single person or a family cabal – or for that matter in the hands of even an organisation – is fatal for the future of a nation and its people. This is a fact that has been validated throughout history, and no-one can quarrel with what you have said.

    I don’t know why Kit Athul must know your real name before he can answer better. I doubt he actually has anything worthwhile to add. You are not the first person he has referred to as a ‘British colonial punk’. This is what he seems to call anyone whose views he does not share. So, know you are not alone in being called this. In fact, you are in good company!

  11. Marco Says:

    Think i have been called worse than a “Colonial punk” in this website, but then again what is expected if the moderator is willing to turn a blind eye for entertainment value.
    It is interesting the author uses the adage “two wrongs maketh no right”.
    Was it not the arguement that GOSL put forward in the impeachment motion?

  12. Lorenzo Says:

    No one in SL has absolute power.

    PEOPLE have some power. They ELECT the president and parliament.
    UNP controls the Aluthkade Bar.
    SLMC controls law college.
    MAHARAJA controls the media!!
    UNP controls the CMC (largest unit within country with MOST people)
    JVP controls trade unions
    NGOs control human rights!!
    Tamils control Hindu/Tamil cultural/religious affairs
    Muslims control Muslim cultural/religious affairs

    So there is no single person or organisation that has absolute power. Power is SHARED!!!
