    If this kind of disaster was eminent in Hambantota, MR would have already fixed dams, culverts or even a water salination plant to help the people of that area. People take note.

    curse for sure.. but think about it.. i want MR to be the next president too.. cuase he have already screwed up our economy, and along with his family.. they have pocketed enough money.. if SF becomes the next president, he will suffer alot.. just like how obama is facing.. Bush screw up the economy but Obama is suffering from it..

    These are early Signs of Dajjal the "Anti-Christ" arrival. He is the False Messiah among people who will claim that he the GOD and every on earth should worship him. He will perform certain miracles to prove him self and relieve people hardship in exchange to follow his new world order OR other terms to worship him.
