    I do not understand why people are not trying to stop this. It is absolutely dangerous that armed forces involved in these kind of operations. Are we sleep walking towards a police state??? look at what's happening in Myanmar.

    I recall some people including some in yellow robes asking for a hitler at the election time. They must be happy now.

    Army State was long anticipated. The Army State will be slowly transferred to Chinese

    Ram Friday, 23 April 2021 03:32 AM

    Police Minister Weerasekera must resign. He has failed and now we are facing an Army State

    Buddhist Friday, 23 April 2021 05:06 AM

    Slowly but steadily we are getting there.

    Sokrates Friday, 23 April 2021 06:34 AM

    Now the military dictatorship is fully established. The Forces have lost their honour by joining a dictator and mafia boss instead of overthrowing him as it would be constitutionally correct.

    Very soon the army commander has to be addressed as his excellency. Ha haa.....

    Don't worry guys. Sri Lankan armed forces have a good manner. It will be a thousand times better than corrupted administrators. Soon the corruption will ameliorate. Just wait and see.

    This is what most people wanted actually. They knew this would come eventually. The Sri Lankan elite love to see military people roaming around heavily armed. They believe this impresses foreigners a lot. At the end of the day, the average Lankan does not care about human rights or democracy, they are more concerned about what the foreigner thinks of them, particularly the white man. They get excited when foreigner says streets are clean and smiling people all over.

    The Soldier Boy has taken to the Stethoscope instead of the Gun, will soon have to get back to the Gun? Ha, ha, ha ha, for the 6.9 Million
