    I too disagree with the decision which president made on General Fonseka, but Mrs. Fonseka should not take this as a political campaign since more actions she takes, they may tight him more. As of everyone knows this is all because of JVP and if not JVP pulled him to politics, still he is the best army commander for those who against him now, as well.

    Siri Saturday, 02 October 2010 10:10 AM

    Also Samantha, he would still be 'the best army commander for those who against him now' if he didn't contest against Rajapakshe. Yes? No?

    This is not a right way to thank a War Hero who free the country from terrorism. This is a Political revenge and this is not an act of Gentleman.

    arasoysa Friday, 01 October 2010 10:02 PM

    we talk alot about our great culture, our great values, the influence of great buddhist philodopy to our day to day lives. Our leaders have shown to the world, they are just few empty words. they are not in existence in Sri Lanka

    Upul Withanage Friday, 01 October 2010 10:17 PM

    What will give the nature it will come back.....

    Rohan Saturday, 02 October 2010 12:08 PM

    nala Friday, 01 October 2010 10:23 PM

    shame to be a sri lankan

    LCK Friday, 01 October 2010 11:30 PM

    MR why you are digging your grave, you are the President of our country. Not a wise decision.

    Lion Saturday, 02 October 2010 12:15 AM

    We all should be ashamed of what this government of Rajapaksha is doing.The people of this country know very well who saved this country from Prabakaran.Rajapakshas rob the victory of General,rob his triump at the presidential election,rob his penison and medals he won with blood now Rajapakshas are going to rob his life.Sad part is the people of this country fast in sleep when do they get up,Shame Shame.If this has happened in India there would have been chaors and even self immolations.

    uditha Saturday, 02 October 2010 12:46 AM

    The jailing of a true war hero of our soil is a shameless crime. Curse must fall on like a thunder on those who did this crime.

    thivanka Saturday, 02 October 2010 01:29 AM

    Dont worry madam...we r with u....

    Ranjith Saturday, 02 October 2010 02:02 AM

    Every successful person has a woman behind and vise versa.

    Anver Saturday, 02 October 2010 02:07 AM

    Tears of genuine grief will not go unanswered in the God's Court of Justice.

    manjula jayawardana Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:19 AM

    mr. president, what goes up must come down..........

    AA Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:23 AM

    Where are all those people who worshipped the "Ranaviruwa" sometime back?
    Have they forgtton that SF is the greatest "Ranaviruwa" we have?

    sudu Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:32 AM

    personal revenge!! but if consequences may results soon if Buddhism is true

    Shelton W Saturday, 02 October 2010 01:11 PM

    The Army celebrated 60 years, and in this period was any person sent to jail for purchasing frauds ? If not it shows the pure personal vendetta against Fonseka. Mandela was in jail
    for 27 years. MR is building SF to be the giant killer of 2017?

    farshard Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:38 AM

    dont worry madam general will get more support from people in this case any have still we are with genaral...

    Smart Aleck Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:50 AM

    Sri Lanka's Day of Shame! Yaso Ayaso!

    local boy Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:05 AM

    not enough !. should send for life if not apologize for his ugly remarks

    Ruwan Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:16 AM

    Peopel who convicterd him are not humans they are power greedy scavengers.

    upul Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:18 AM

    One month each for every year the war was on!!

    Not a bad gift ha??

    Shame !!!

    mata nikang hithuna Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:29 AM

    and the king and the family lived happily ever after....

    DIsgusted Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:40 AM

    Sri Lankans are the most selfish, ungrateful, uncivilised, inhuman and corrupt bunch of idiots. We are supposed to have had civilisation 2500 years ago. Thats all history. To make a new start, all Sri Lankans should be wiped out from the land. I hope a tsunami or a volcanic eruption or a natural dissaster will give Sri Lanka an oppotunity to make a fresh start.

    Katussa Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:49 AM

    Definitely the act of a COWARD!

    amer Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:50 AM

    one time he was the only solution for Sri Lanka's problem but today it is only problem of Anoma ??? great nation with great politictions.

    Katussa Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:52 AM

    Those whom Gods wish to destroy are first made MAD! And I hasten to add 'They will also suffer from incurable diseases'!!

    Marasinha Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:54 AM

    I feel ver sorry for SF.but he must take the full responsibilty for all this mess,including the so called JVP sahodarayos

    E.T. Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:08 AM

    Dear Shiranthi, you are a good catholic. Could you not sway your husband from this sort of pure revenge? What would you have felt if the tables were turned? Do you as a woman and a mother not feel the agony that Anoma, your one time friend is going through? Do you not see the tears pouring out of her eyes?

    Dheen Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:28 AM

    One tend to think that the Buddhist political leaders from the top down the pipeline who portray an impeccable Buddhist image to the masses are all for their survival only. This is a gross insult to Buddhism.

    VIKUM Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:38 AM

    I AGREE WITH YOU WITH HANDS DOWN.
    THIS IS THE MOST UNGRATEFUL COUNTRY ON EARTH.

    demon Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:41 AM

    no worries...SF is an unstoppable force...

    Muraly Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:54 AM

    Democracy at its best.

    Sherif Saturday, 02 October 2010 06:14 AM

    Utter revenge! Don't say this is done by those who practice BHUDDISM. But the "SILENT" nation is heartening. Am I doing my duty? Same on me.

    Mahinda Budu wewa Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:49 PM

    this is not a revenge, this is the pure justice, MR is the greatest leader i have ever seen. Hail Mahinda, Hail Sri Lanka,
