    Know their limits?? If that is what you believe in, then I suppose you'd just look on without protest even after they come and take your clothes away one day. Wake up people, the hour has come when we have to take courage and rise up for the sake of our liberties as citizens of this beloved motherland.

    These guys especially Weliamuna work against the country and naturally some people get annoyed and go overboard in their reactions.

    It is time for men and women of valour to rise in unity to safeguard their sovereignity. Another glorious era for true heroes to show up. The time for good to overcome evil, the battle lines are being drawn for history to repeat as in the days when people were courageous to differentiate between good and bad.

    This is a good lesson. Either they should commit themselves to fight against the oppressive regime until restoration of rule of law in the country or should have mind their own business, without misleading the public with their pretence.

    Tell me first, are you willing to stand up and speak out when all the might and power of an almost dictatorial regime is against you?

    All citizens should make applications to US, GB, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the European countries for political asylum. The lawyers definitely have to do it.

    Sorry no vacancies for toilet clearners in those countries.
    All such jobs are already filled by LTTE asylum seekers.

    This is the democracy. Every one has the right to communicate. Just put that to waste paper basket. Nothing further would happen to these prominent figures|||

    Thuggery all the way as part of the "Chintanaya". Idiotic voters deserve this and much more till the "Banana Republic" becomes the "Rotten Banana Republic".
