  1. Currently there are two fools talking out of turn. Their statements make no sense:
    Field Marshall – a) I welcome the hybrid court
    b) I am ready to testify.
    Did anyone ask you for this. Why not keep your mouth shut and live like a completly rejected politician in the last election.
    Wigneswaran . a) It was a good day for Tamils in their history when the report was out.
    b) we want a victim centric enquiry
    Didn’t he hear that Mr Sumanthiran asked him to shut up his mouth.
    Do not open the mouths and make yourselves even further fools.

  2. Since 2015 January 9th that people of Sri lanka become that lost democracy after independent 1948. That is part of tragedy of Our democracy ,the result of unprincipled and anti-democracy played negative role of norms of Democracy last 9 months.

    That is nothing else we have been learn many lessons, besides of that, urgently want more educated person to become President of Our Republic.

    This issues has to be address by People of Sri Lankan and as well as UNO>

    • Substance of your comment may have some meaning.However if your message was written in better English readers will appreciate better. You are not to blame. This country needs more English teachers.

    • Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka says the LTTE killed the civilians and army saved many innocent civilians, if the Commander of the army who directed the war says that he is willing to testify why make so much of fuss.
