    If you cant sack yourself, at least sack them.

    Should immediatly appoint able person like Gen. Daya Ratnayaka as Secretary Defence to handle the volatile situation.

    Is this a timely action ? Without pointing the finger at others he and PM should resign.

    When will you resign. You are the one responsible for this situation. You are over the defence secretary, you are the one destabilized country last October with your moronic actions. Please, please resign. You are not a president, you are a joker.

    When will you handover the Law and Order to SF, are you worried that the truth will come out if you give to him.

    Remember he said if RW is appointed as PM again he would resign within 5 minutes. Months have gone by and may be his 5 minutes is 5 years. What a joker.
