    We done..!!

    It was well expected after the election defeat to warn the "Democratic Heroes" while the so called "War Heroes" are standing at every 50m all over the N&E and guarding their motherland - Is it the beginning of another humanitarian operation?

    Its a simple case of ignoring warning signs....don't make it sound like a Army vs civilians conspiracy.
