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

    Somebody is benefiting from having societal/ethnic warfare....and it ain't Sri Lankans! (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.
