General Fonseka’s entry into politics: Is it the end of democracy in Sri Lanka?

As a simpleton I do not see any difference in between War and Politics.
In the battlefield you kill the enemies by Arms & Ammunition.
But it's rather change in politics as most of the hypocrites use wet towels for the said purpose instead of shooting they do it by strangling,
I suggest that the General could get a retirement and wear a saffron robe for the end of journey?

    The bitter words of experience inspire this powerful political commentary about a place fraught with conflict and always so dear to your heart, Nimal. Your disappointment and angst must touch all who read this fine poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    It would be tragic indeed if your beautiful
    country was to be fated for more suffering.
    You have so many loved ones there.
    I am sorry for them and sorry for you.

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
