    • Sri Lanka has never had a food shortage, and yes, Sri Lankans are WELL FED! It is the G7, five-eyes and traitors who show to the world that Sri Lanka is poor. Sri Lanka is one of the wealthiest countries on the planet. That is why we don’t need to STEAL resources, oil, etc from other countries and everybody else wants ours!

      @Gabriella: You are trying to spit by looking up or maybe you are bitter that the treacherous 19th amendment is over and that there is NO CHANCE of the LTTE kappam war starting again!
