    Ahh.. I was wondering where Gota L(tte) Rajapasa was... With his fond memories of the LTTE whom he loves so much and cant stop being without...

    you are one of the dirtiest person I have seen. You send special plane to get your pupies by air when people are suffering to find their days living.You got a rouge to write a book name gothas war. When it was relay should have been fonsekas war. In the case of white flag case the way you scold Fedricia Janz showed to the world how mean person you are. You all were un crown kings when your brother the dirtiest rouge who ever ruled this country of suffering. You and your brothers spend 90 million Rs of poor people to built the tomb of your little known father who was in politics. Remember the day is not far a way that you and your family have to pay for these sins. Finely it was for our Luck that fonseka was appointed to the post of army commander.

    M.O.Daya Wednesday, 11 May 2016 07:29 AM

    Oh my God. Well brought up people?? Then you will not have a work force in the govt. Sri Lankan Airlines, Mihin Air - any takers pre Jan2015?

    When the war was going on for the past 30 years from Srimavo to Chandrika all the head of states were condemned. No army commander was condemned at that time even ranjan Wijerthna and Anurudda ratwate was condemned. So when the war is won naturally the credit should go the head of the state and GOTA

    Wesko Tuesday, 10 May 2016 04:48 PM

    Thanks to S.F .. Because of him ..You and your brothers recognized to day ... Worship him he is the Hero. ..

    The God Father Monday, 09 May 2016 11:48 PM

    These opportunists claimed everything for their family including the victory over LTTE, this guy is not a war strategist but was at the right place at the right time, however GR should be given credit for cleaning the Colombo city, of course for the right price. SF should be thrashed for taking orders from GR, it was like a Chef taking orders from the waiter.

    desilva Tuesday, 10 May 2016 12:25 AM

    Not for appointing SF as army commander but for other high handed things you have done. Thrashing is not enough
