    Do these monks know what the MCCC or the SOFA is......oh what we have come to as a Nation!

    I am a Sri Lankan. My blood and flesh are with Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka should fight till the last drop of blood in their bodies to protect our motherland by not allowing any foreign powers to interfere in our country affairs. Our fore-fathers got the freedom to this esteemed country and our utmost responsibilities are to protect that.

    People who comment on the MCC and SOFA are kindly advised to take the trouble to study the facts before making a judgement. The MCC is actually beneficial to the country and does not compromise our national integrity. The SOFA is suspect and should be wiped off the discussion table.
