    Well, atleast the commando's have found a use for Mattala Airport.

    Hey. This is a good idea. We can rent it as a film set. Movies such as 'terminal' can can be filmed there. But the problem is filling it with people. Can't fill an airport with cattle, can you?

    FIRST OF ALL , CAN'T WE USE THESE COMMANDOS TO CATCH SPEEDING BUS DRIVERS.

    We can make more money if we hire it to ISIS to train for Hijacking and terror attacks. The coommandos can train to catch them it will be a real life Hora Police game.

    Look who's supervising the drill, the Chinese Military. Its their property after all.
