Your Sweetheart Saturday, 04 December 2010 07:33 AM
Why that parallel would not work in this instance is because, US government takes steps against its own military for abuse of power, whereas we do not. Secondly, US has tremendous influence in international politics, whereas we do not. Under the circumstances, if we put our own house in order without comparing with other countries, so much the better for us.

Govt leaders blasting West in open and praising India & China but when they receive an invitation from West they do not think twice just rush there and these are the results.

Supporters/Ministers singing for their supper !
Hiran Shanaka Friday, 03 December 2010 01:17 PM
The treatment for MR in the UK must be condemned by all the diplomatic community! I think it is high time for our foreign services to go through the whole saga and make a strategic review. What if when Brack Obama visits UK, some Al Qaeda shouted slogans and call for an investigation on thousands that had been killed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc? It is logical to draw parallels here, as LTTE at the end of the day is a terrorist outfit. The steps must be taken by the foreign ministry to nip these unwarranted protests by the bud, before they turn into a diplomatic catastrophe of the century, as no Sri Lanka politician might be able to visit London! Do not misunderstand this event with freedom of speech, as one can’t have exercised the freedom speech, by violating the same of another. All political parties must stand as one, and condemn this event!!!
M.R.Percyge_Putha Friday, 03 December 2010 02:12 PM

perumal Friday, 03 December 2010 03:25 PM
When he shows his teeth as if smiling, others follow suit. But all know what they are doing. Deceiving them selves.
Yourlanka Friday, 03 December 2010 03:48 PM
angriness? Where did you find this gem of a word? Well done, Mr. President!
