    Mr. President why don't you first practice that at home before preaching to others? make PEACE with your enemies incuding Gen Sarath Fonseka,

    I Hussein Saturday, 05 March 2011 11:48 AM

    How about making peace with SF first and then preach your friend.

    lets hope that MR's big talks won't lead to a MR Vs. Gadaffi battle!!

    tomsamUsa Saturday, 05 March 2011 05:15 AM

    Can't compare Sri Lanka with Libya, Libya must consult some other for advise.

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Saturday, 05 March 2011 04:53 AM

    Roger Saturday, 05 March 2011 04:46 AM

    Why is Sri Lankan Military doing in Libya, is it to protect the friendship or Trainning the Libyan armed forces

    Dilrushiya Saturday, 05 March 2011 04:40 AM

    Gadaffi's reply: Can't do both, bro. If I want to establish peace, I will have to get rid of these protestors.

    FDO Saturday, 05 March 2011 04:38 AM

    MagodisThuma Saturday, 05 March 2011 02:08 AM

    Make Love Not War !.

    pussy cat Saturday, 05 March 2011 01:54 AM

    Even Hitler had public support. Gadaffi doest have. He is a criminal,We should not help him.

    Cobra Saturday, 05 March 2011 01:34 AM

    Gaddafi, probably wanted MR to send him some troops with water cannon and such to quell the uprising when he phoned him!

    lasantha Saturday, 05 March 2011 12:59 AM


    Ranil Saturday, 05 March 2011 12:41 AM

    Wonder why Gaddafi called. To arrange for mercenaries? Evacuation? Exile?

    lasantha Saturday, 05 March 2011 12:27 AM


    Citizen Friday, 04 March 2011 11:22 PM

    Do it MR way!

    Prof Wickramatillake Friday, 04 March 2011 11:18 PM

    Oh now MR is changing the stance?

    Faqi Friday, 04 March 2011 10:33 PM

    Isn't it a bit too late for this advise, as 90 % of the country is in the hands of the rebels, except for a small enclave in the capital city of Tripoli which seems to be loyal to Colonel Gaddafi. Its best he leave without killing his own citizens by indiscriminate bombing.

    Anakonda Friday, 04 March 2011 10:24 PM

    Ok... now he will stop it...!

    Banda Friday, 04 March 2011 09:26 PM

    MR, first think of what you did and then start to preach.

    Gaddafi Friday, 04 March 2011 09:13 PM

    Yes my friend. I will follow the same humanitarian approach like you did in 2009 in Vanni to bring the peace.

    Gon Haraka Friday, 04 March 2011 09:02 PM

    Mr. President. How about leading by EXAMPLE? Let us not be like the crabs.
