  1. This is what USA and other Western countries would like to happen in Sri Lanka. Three was not a single incident during ‘Rajapaksa time’ since war ended. Sirisena will be rewarded by UN too for providing opportunities to keep them busy in their usual business. Elimination of crime and terrorism is not the preferred way in the modern world. Try to follow Buddhist philosophy; you do not need to be a Buddhist to do this.
