Dear General. Don't go to close to people. Govt. may attempt to kill you.
Viraj Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:47 AM
Real Hero, May triple gem bless you sir.

If history records it correctly, SF will be highlighted as one of the best military commanders / hero we ever had and those who put him behind bars will be clearly marked as TRAITORS.
Harshani Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:09 AM
When will the God justify this ?
suren Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:10 AM
Will SF be Maximus Decimus Meridius who fought for Julius caesar?. Will people in Sri Lanka
Thomas Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:11 AM
HASIYA, It is the right of every citizen of Sri Lanka to contest in any democratic elections held by the Govt of Sri Lanka. SF has every right to contest , regardless whether it is MR or Mervyn.
Nandimithra Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:14 AM
Hope - hope for all of us for a free democracy
Nandimithra Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:16 AM

SF's popularity continues to rise
Wak Perera Wednesday, 20 October 2010 03:17 PM
We Sri lankans forget good deeds easily. If this is another country it will be the people and not politically motivated parties who will openly lament the suffering now undergone unfairly by this greatest hero who rescued every citizen of Sri Lanka from the evil spell of Prbhakaran and LTTE.
truth is bitter Wednesday, 20 October 2010 03:20 PM
yes he has the right to contest...but does he have the "moral"right to contest the very man who fed him,or to insult the the same man who did'nt even mention his name during his speeches in the presidential campaigne??does he have the "moral" right team up with the people who pulled his leg as well as outr motherland during the war or betray our forces inclding shavendra silva by his stupid white flag stories for a few tamil votes???
musnad Wednesday, 20 October 2010 05:18 PM

Nishantha Rajapakse Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:18 PM
This is bravery.. quality of a professional military man. whole country knows this.you are mother Lanka's heroic son General. We salute you.
sunila Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:57 AM
I admire the stature of SF for not bowing down to a set of Kanahilla's while UNP crossovers jump over for a mere bowl of soup. We need more and more politicians of this stature whom no amount of money can buy over.
unl Thursday, 21 October 2010 04:41 AM
Only JVPers Cheering. they Survive because of SF

good stature and an impressive personality.
malkanthi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 07:48 AM
Good that the supporter's face is not visible, otherwise he will be framed for something tomorrow.
Appu Wednesday, 20 October 2010 08:48 AM
One thing this Government has failed so far is to remove SF's image from the front pages of the news papers. He is very much alive and is hot news.
gundappa Wednesday, 20 October 2010 08:53 AM
The whole problem is the lack of wisdom with those who call upon the blessings of the triple gem.
Why is it that those who are unjust, revengeful, corrupt and self centered also call upon the triple gem for blessigs
Its all hog wash, to dupe the foolish Sri Lankans
rosh Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:28 AM
Sure, but not to lead a country
rosh Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:28 AM
Better than Ranil. But both are same in one aspect - Kata ariyoth palathama ewarai
walapalam Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:40 AM
if we select and call upon for blessing hardly anybody left amongst our leaders to be blessed
willow Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:43 AM
The worlds' best army commander no one can change that - god bless you sir.
Concerned Citizen Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:50 AM
MR thank you for making SF a political Hero!
Ajithkumar Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:53 AM
So you mean No one can even try to be President in SL??? - What is the meaning of D E M O crazy
black topa Wednesday, 20 October 2010 09:54 AM
Gamini, don't you know why people are cheering? He is the greatest of the greatest. Not a cut out hero. We need a tough and uncorrupted man to run this country.
Palitha Silva Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:19 AM
black topa! even Prabakaran & Rohana Wijeweera was cheered! Thats does not mean he is a great leader. Person who betrayed the motherland through white flag case.
