President Mahinda Rajapaksa in a message to US President Barrack Obama condemned the Boston bomb attack today and called it an act of cowardice while conveying condolences over the loss of life and injuries sustained

The  president also had said in his message that Jeyaraj Fernandopulle, a Sri Lankan minister, was also killed in a terrorist bomb attack while getting ready to start a similar marathon and therefore we in Sri Lanka very well understood the brutality and the pain of terrorism.

The president also invited the US leader and leaders of all countries to get together to eliminate this scourge of terrorism.

    When bomb blast happens in US, their president Obama calls it - heinous cowardice act. When it was happening in SL - asking for reconciliation. These guys do not have two openings for their food taking and excretions. They do both by one opening I suppose. It is more hilarious after they killed Saddam Hussain on bogus claims and now bomb blast is a daily occurrence. They call it democracy working in Iraq! If anyone understand this?

    U.S. government also learning the pain of terrorism.

    Shame on you Mr. Obama. If this has happened in my country our government would have named the culprit, caught his entire clan, and punished him. We would not wait till our police gather evidence, our politicians are faster in doing that. We would neither wait for the courts to hear the case and convict, other people will do it on behalf of the judiciary and thereby save our time and money. We would like offer you aid at this juncture,Mr. Cabral told that you are short of money.
