    Does the General know about the Digana incident? SL should include minorities in the STF, 50 : 25 : 25 , sinhalese, Tamils , Muslims respectively. if any problem arises, perpetrators should be shot right on the belly button.

    Somewhat unusual to have his soldiers trained by a country that has lost several wars in close history. The best military training worlwide is provided by the French Foreign Legion, which even trains US Navy Seals. But Sri Lankan soldiers are probably not suited for this type of hard training.
