It has been acclaimed nationally as well as Internationally that the
Sri Lanka Army is most disciplined and dignified one constituted with
gallant soldiers committed for the noble task they are expected to
If not for their patriotism, inherent noble qualities of a noble
Nation and their dedication to save the Motherland, the international
community (IC) supported LTTE which is portrayed as most ruthless and
invincible terrorist outfit would not have been defeated in such a short
period of only two and a half years.
This noble quality of unadulterated love to the Mother country was
spontaneously demonstrated by the President, the Commander in Chief of
the Nation as well when he worshipped the Motherland on stepping back to
it from abroad on hearing the Motherland has been saved from the
The Mother Sri Lanka would not have received back about one third of
her land forcibly grabbed and occupied by IC supported LTTE if not for
the bravery and commitment of the soldiers. It will go down history in
golden letters definitely.
They have rendered their duty and now it is time to recognise it,
appreciate it and gratify them. In gratifying the noble patriotic
soldiers one important thing that should be noted sincerely and
affectionately is that most of these soldiers do not just have a plot of
land of at least six feet in this Motherland which they saved even to
bury their corps. The heart breaking truth is that there was no place
for the parents to keep the body of a dead soldier who sacrified his
life to save the Motherland. This is true for most of the soldiers.The
injured disabled are no exceptions.
Therefore the most noble way of gratifying the soldiers and their
families who saved the Motherland is to give land from the area they
have taken back from the IC supported LTTE who were forcibly occupying
it which would have been lost for ever for the Motherland. Thus they
also saved the present generation upon which the future generation would
The ideal way of doing it is to locate them in groups under thousands
of Wewas that had been destroyed and abandoned.
In Sri Lanka there was no Wewa without a Gama-village and No Gama
without a Wewa.
This will have excellent effects. There will be a Gama Neguma in real
sense. The Wewas which were destroyed by the predecessors of the present
IC to keep Sri Lanka dependent on them and to exploit the natural
resources would be renovated and rehabilitated and the villages would be
The paddy land under each of these Wewas will be cultivated thereby
the IC created food crisis could also be avoided as marvellous as saving
the Motherland from the IC supported terrorists.
This could well be done under 'Dahasak Wew' program of Mahinda
Chintanaya. As a result in a couple of years 'Nilla Pirunu Ratak' of the
Mahinda Chintanaya will be a reality and the reawakening of Glorious
Ruhuna will not be a mere dream as expected by enemies of the
This we believe is the Noble National way of gratifying the soldiers
who saved the Motherland.

With the recent escalation of fighting in the North between the Sri
Lankan Forces and the LTTE, I have been watching foreign News Channels
(BBC/CNN/AI Jazeera) and very interestingly reading all the newspapers
to keep myself updated of what was going on. It is now known that this
deadly war has come to an end with the annihilation of the barbaric
terrorist which has been the cancer of our society for over 3 decades.
I feel helpless, sad and frustrated when I learn how these Foreign
Ministers led by Miliband tried to stop us achieving this peace all Sri
Lankans wanted for so long by 'bulldozing' themselves and trying to
pressurize the Sri Lankan Government to stop the final stages of the war
by calling it a catastrophe.
I am confident that Miliband would have been in his early stages of
childhood when we first encountered the menace of the LTTE. Miliband, I
would like to ask you did you know all what happened in this war in the
past to rush to Sri Lanka and pass judgment. Has anyone told you of the
Central Bank bomb in Colombo which killed many people from all
communities? Did you know that the LTTE killed scores of villagers in
Kent & Dollar Farms, Aranthalawa, killing of pilgrims in Anuradhapura,
killing of Muslims at prayer in the East to name a few. I presume you
chose to ignore or not know all these as you would have been busy
playing with your schoolmates when innocent people were getting killed
in this Island, during that dark period.
What did your British Government and your EU friends do when this
country was struggling to overcome the terror, during that time.
Did you and your EU Counterparts bring pressure when Iraq was
attacked (Gulf war)? What about the war in Afghanistan? What have you so
called 'Foreign Ministers' done on these fronts? I guess, you cannot do
anything in those countries as your hands are full of blood.
Please Mr. Miliband and your bunch of 'EU Foreign Ministers' - You
must use the same yard stick for all, if you want people to listen to
you. We are not a country that you can bully and meddle around any more.
So - please "Shut up and mind your own business".
I also hear in foreign news channels that EU Foreign Ministers are
calling for a probe on war crimes in Sri Lanka. You must inform the Sri
Lankan Government fast, so that they can preserve the skeletons of
Prabhakaran, Pottu Amman and others to hand them over to the Hague.
The USA experienced what terrorism is all about with the unfortunate
9/11. Since your country has not so far experienced this, you can go
globe trotting (uninvited) and try to make a noise. We never asked you
and the EU to offer asylum to LTTE cadres in your countries. It is a
matter of time before you experience the brutality of the remaining LTTE
cadres now domiciled in your countries.
We live amongst our Tamil brothers in most part of the country in
harmony. Leave us alone to build our country from now on as all of us
In 1999, I pointed out that the hard-earned Tamil diaspora money was
going down the drain, with no benefit to anyone.
Today in retrospect, the diaspora will agree with me that terrorists
are only sales representatives to arms producing countries,
demonstrating the power of new weapons, but on somebody else's account.
