A third world phenomenon:
The democratic politics in this country began
with the introduction of the adult suffrage in 1931, the
consequences of which were many, and the entry of Sarath Fonseka,
who shed military garb a few weeks ago, into active Presidential
politics, has introduced a dangerous element into the whole process
of democratic politics in this country. It portends a great danger
for the very survival of democratic politics; therefore the
magnitude of the political danger needs to be analyzed from the
point of view of the experience of the military regimes which were a
third world phenomenon.

It was inevitable wasn’t it? The moment Sarath
Fonseka announced that he wanted to be President there was bound to
be a tussle for victory-credit. Fonseka, true to form, wants us to
believe that he single-handedly vanquished the LTTE. It is pretty
clear that while he played a keyrole as Army Commander, he was only
one in a formidable team in which every member played his role to
Political expediencies and the clouds of war!
Political Perspective - The Third EYE
Gen. Sarath Fonseka in one of his many
statements to the press during his tenure as the Army Commander said
that the ‘minorities can live in this country but they do not have
the right to wage war in the name of grievances’. Well, that was
Sarath Fonseka, the professional army soldier, but now after having
received his ‘political tuition’ from the UNP and Ranil
Wickremesinghe he has changed his views and have entered in to an
understanding with the LTTE proxy, the current TNA a.k.a the ITAK.
