    Unless you are willing to take part in either piloting an Air Force fighter or a Navy gun boat or willing to pay for the cost, you should keep your mouth shut and your fingers from typing stupid statements.

    Hahaha what a joke. I'm Sri Lankan but India can wipe us off the map in less than 3 and a half minutes.

    Population of India: 1 billion Population of Sri Lanka: 20 million For every one of us Sri Lankans there are 50 Indians. Think again if you would dare to pick a fight with India.

    Pakistan says "better sense should prevail" Well said Pakistan. This shows your patience against mad dogs.

    This is not a war against Pak people, or pak army or pak government, this is a limited attack on terrorist camps who have already claimed the responsibility of recent attacks inside India. Please don't exaggerate the things. Terrorist must be eliminated from everywhere irrespective of place, religion and other geopolitics. Srilanka should support India, if needed.

    Kumar Tuesday, 26 February 2019 04:02 PM

    Terrorist should be eliminated for the humankind.

    Martin Milton Tuesday, 26 February 2019 04:58 PM

    Sri Lanka should NEVER become involved in this 'fracas' in any way. Sri Lanka is well advised to keep any comments and actions reserved. MM

    Amara Tuesday, 26 February 2019 05:26 PM

    India like any other country has the right to retaliate against attacks from home or abroad.

    Sammy Tuesday, 26 February 2019 05:56 PM

    Of course better sense prevailed for Pakistan because they are not strong enough to retaliate. It is like a jackal saying better sense prevailed not retaliating against a lion. They can do so only through their terrorists.

    Ranatunga Tuesday, 26 February 2019 06:35 PM

    Srilanka should be with India only. The foreign minister should release a statement against terrorism.

    James Wednesday, 27 February 2019 08:44 AM

    Sri lanka should have done the same when India shamelessly trainex and armed Sri Lanka Terrorists.
