well thought appointment !Congrtulations to new Defence Secretary !
Life in sri lanka will not return to normal at least for another few months for the new legislation to take effect essentially to weed out extreme elements in the muslim community for islamic extremism is not limited to National Thowfeek Jamaath for its agents have infiltrated into all walks of life in sri lanka and their acts of terror has no limitations as has been demonstrated in weaponising trucks, buses, cars clubs, knives swords that can create havoc. the cardinal complains of the inadequacy of security provided by the government when there are thousands of schools ministers and ministries the task is monumental. one need to reflect on as to what it takes to put the country on a war footing which means marshall law to be declared to place all politicians under house arrest inclusive of pm. president and the judiciary. untill all terrorists brought to book.
This means extension of curfew till then the peple will be at liberty to run essential services.
Long didstance travel to be banned. Politicians not placws under house arrest return to constituncies.
This is hard line to be executed the army has to declare martial law and not wait for a decree to be passed by the government. To challenge this decee would be to impose summary executions. Neraly 400 catholics were killed and there is no law to bring them to justice. we are faced with the same imperative and our only salvation is matrial law!
UN FOMENTED THIS PROBLEM BY CREATING SRI sanctuary on qhosw authrity. UN should forthwith repatriate all back brought under UN aspicies forthwith amd get their countries to gurantee their security forthwith,
