Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has warned that several foreign and local bodies including a section of the international community have become a part of a malicious attempt against Sri Lanka.


The government information department quoted the Defence Secretary as saying the forthcoming Presidential Elections will mark a decisive juncture in the nation’s history and will determine the country’s survival or destruction.


“We have been able to defeat the most ruthless terrorist organization and bring peace to the nation after three decades. This historic victory was achieved by sacrificing the lives of 27,000 heroic soldiers who fought against terrorism,’ he said, adding that the evil forces that obstructed the mission to liberate the nation are again engaged in a malicious effort to turn back the victory the country achieved.


“The ugly head of evil political forces that opposed the fight against terrorism is rising again. Several foreign and local bodies including a section of the international community have become a part of this malicious attempt,” he noted.


“It is the due responsibility of all the patriotic forces of this country to be aware of these treacherous acts and rally round to defeat these forces,” he said..

    This is called "fud," in management theory, i.e. to spread FEAR, UNCERTAINTY and DOUBT, in voters' minds and snatch their votes. Instead of spending huge amounts of money and energy on labeling the opposition, "traitors," please spend some time on addressing economic issues!

    ......and the polls will determine the "countrys" survival or destruction....... I think he should replace the word "country" with "Rajapakse Co" that would be more appropriate.

    Go tell it to the birds & bees! Do you think that we hang from trees ?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 05:29 PM

    The usual excuse, to fool the people!

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:56 PM

    Gota you are very right! We saw how the West tried various tactics to undermine Sri Lanka, during the final military onslaught against tamil 'tigers,' who destroyed our country, during the last 30 years. 'Hats-off' to President Rajapakse and Gota, who never 'bowed-down' to foreign pressure!

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:50 PM

    We have heard this dated theme for a long time now and are now fed-up! Why don't you find another theme, for election purposes?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:41 PM

    Gota, you don't need to worry, if you have not done anything wrong! Do not blame the foreign countries, for this mess! The truth, cannot be erased.

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:39 PM

    Any one who is rational, is considered unpatriotic?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:31 PM

    Kamal: If the majority international community is against you, is it a conspiracy?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 07:00 PM

    Gota, are you looking for excuses?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 06:30 PM

    Suddenly, "unpatriotic forces" and "conspiracies" all around ... What else is new? Every government has been seeing conspiracies, close to election time! Don't know what happens to all of these, at other times?

    Monday, 11 January 2010 06:28 PM

    Yes sir, we Sri Lankans understand that very clearly. May the blessings of the Triple-Gem be with our motherland! We love you very much! If the UN wants you, they will have to go through our dead bodies! We need both you and our beloved President, for another 6 years!

    Monday, 11 January 2010 06:19 PM

    Don't blame others for this mess!

    Monday, 11 January 2010 05:39 PM

    Prevention is better than cure!
