    lankaputha Wednesday, 15 December 2010 10:08 AM

    The best way to be in peace is to have the best collection of weapons.. But please no more commission business. We need more money to spend on food than buying Benz cars

    Pls dont buy armoured vehicles. we dont have war. give consession to poor by that money. if you are really interested on those vehicles pls buy one or two by your private money and keep at your home.

    We make armoured vehicles in SL, right? Why do we need to import? Just upgrade the 'Unicorn'.

    Sherlock holmes Wednesday, 15 December 2010 10:28 AM

    lets hope ''Sophisticated'' means new vehicles with latest technology.

    Lets take a peaceful country we all know. Singapore. Just Google search "defence spending singapore' and see what you get. This is called frogs in the well syndrome.

    kara Wednesday, 15 December 2010 11:58 AM

    Russia is another great country to do business with. No accountability, no one to question the governance and plenty of kick-bags!

    THE JUDGE Wednesday, 15 December 2010 01:47 PM

    I thought the WAR was over in Sri Lanka. What for the new purchases. Any commission involved?

    ACG Wednesday, 15 December 2010 01:56 PM

    Use this money for rehabilitation of disabled soldiers.

    Wenu Wednesday, 15 December 2010 02:56 PM

    Sri Lanka is trying to become a super power or what? It seems like Rajapaksha believes in making voters happy by creating the war mentality and nothing else.

    Reggie Wednesday, 15 December 2010 02:59 PM

    Are these to guard the Rajapakse family - especially Gotabaya. Afraid of Sarath Fonseka are you ????

    Reggie Wednesday, 15 December 2010 03:01 PM

    This is sickening. When the cost of living is unbearable the emperor and his family needs arms for protect themselves.

    citizen1 Thursday, 16 December 2010 04:46 AM

    pearls before swine also comes to mind...

    gamaya_1 Thursday, 16 December 2010 04:52 AM

    very good. Let's buy all Russian rubbish and display in SL to Americans. We can develop the tourism.

    Jim Dougal Wednesday, 15 December 2010 03:27 PM

    Actually I think that the government is very concerned about an invasion of Sri Lanka from the planet Mars..........

    Dr.No Wednesday, 15 December 2010 03:49 PM

    It is all about %%%%%!

    C.J Thursday, 16 December 2010 05:09 AM

    Have regard for disable soliders who fought for the motherland just invest money on them without waisting tax payers money on few individuals for their well being.

    War is just over, looks like preparations are being made for an international war.

    Pokirissa Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:13 AM

    War is over Sir. Why do we need to expand our military more ? I'm sure theres tons of vehicles, weapons etc left over from the just concluded war....can't we use them for another few good years ?

    sarath k Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:25 AM

    TP Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:31 AM

    Oh dear even aftrer total annihilation of the LTTE we are buying sophisticated Tanks to fight the ghosts of the LTTE. What a country.

    Sekara Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:42 AM

    As the War is over. Why do we need these weapons? This money can be better use for national development.

    I Hussein Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:54 AM

    What for?
    To crush protesters & demontraters in near future?

    Kelby Wednesday, 15 December 2010 05:30 PM

    These guys have no money to feed their own people. As they claim the war is over, why the need of new vehicles? Or are they preparing that Praba might reborn?

    siva Wednesday, 15 December 2010 05:30 PM

    when they come here they may never move and we may not have the required skilld to make them move as they will be discred ones well painted

    Hmm... are we preparing for some big war?

    Heamu Wednesday, 15 December 2010 08:57 AM

    It looks like MR wants to create a another Prakaran and fight with him. People have to remember that MR is responsible about 51% creating the last Prabakaran.
