Rosemary Alles from PASADENA :

A chillingly prescient piece, considering the events of April 21, 2019. Tragic and perhaps preventable.

Thank you Rohan.

Ronnie from San Antonio, TX :

While the premise of this article is very true, I truly don't believe the real threats against the Sri Lankan come from the LTTE or the ISIS any more.

For more than 66 years the two political parties UNP and the SLFP (under various names and forms) have just done nothing but destroying the country through corruption and mismanagement.

There will be no peace or prosperity in the country until we remove those twin threats and elect some honest officials into the parliament!

In a country where the "literacy rate is above 90%" it is sad to see how unintelligent, uneducated and ignorant the Sri Lankans are to keep electing the same corrupted bunch again and again!!!

This is total exaggeration. There is no security issues in the country and what protects country from this kind of threats is the army and sponsorship of the government. this government is committed to the sponsorship and Army is well backed. This article is a Shameless ... effort to please someone..

IS issue into Sri Lanka is being influenced by the Zionist and enemies of Sri Lanka Muslims, those few who joined IS in Syria or Iraq did so for monetary gains, as all muslims the world over know that IS is a product of Israel, US and other nations that are enemies of Islam and muslims. As for LTTE it is a know fact that Ranil is a pro-LTTE fellow a useless drunkard, this Maithri-Ranil alliance will make Prabakaran's Eelam dream much easier.

Willa from Colombo :

The author is talking of IS when IS is dying. They face defaet, lose manpower and territory. And he is talking of LTTE which fought a civil war and silenced its guns.

Contents in this article, are misrepresentations, to cause fear and panic amongst people.

SL never had equality, dignity and Justice for ALL citizens. Democracy started only about 15 months ago.

When people enjoy democracy, what is the need for war? Security will come from people themslves.
