Sarath Fonseka hints, about his future political plans in Washington -updated

General Sarath Fonseka in Washington

(October 27, Washington, Sri Lanka Guardian) ‘Is the motherland going to be destroyed? I will involve changing the dire situation’ said the Former Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka on Sunday (25) in Washington. He said this while he was visiting the Buddhist temple in Washington.

The Sri Lankan ambassador to the US Jaliya Wickramasooriya and the Defence attache Maj. General Samantha Sooriyabandara abstained from the event. The Chief monk Maharagama Dharmasiri Thero gave the blessings to the former army chief General Fonseka.

" Most of the people are talking about our victory these days. In the last 10 days of the war, we lost more than 5,000 soldiers to the Tigers. If they didn't sacrifice their lives, this war would not have ended. We must first salute the martyrdom of those war heroes," General Fonseka said at the temple.

"Now the war is over, Tamil people must be given freedom to live. We should not contribute towards creating a situation that can give birth to another Prabhakaran. We should not allow the country to go on the wrong path. If this happens I am ready to correct the path leaving behind my uniform" he further said.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Vihara welcomed General Saratha Fonseka's comments with the loud applause.

During his visit to the USA he will be meeting his two Daughters who are currently pursuing higher studies in the US.

Dear Editor,

This report is not complete and some news reported are not true. As the Chief Incumbant of the Washington Buddhist Vihara I delivered the welcome speech at this meeting. In my speech I insisted that all the three heros who made the dream of having a terrorist-free country become true, namely, HE The President, the Defence Secretary Gothabhaya Rajapakse and Chief of the three forces General Sarath Fonseka must stay together un-divided to face the current dire situation. I asked the Hon.General to be careful and not to get caught in the Political Trap set by anti-national and anti-peace foreign and local forces.

Unlike your report says Major General Suriyabandara spent whole time of the meeting with General Fonseka. COSLA of Washington DC organized this meeting to hand over scholarships for the children of the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice towards gaining freedom from terrorism.

I appreciate if you publish this note of correction in your valuable website.

Thank you.

Dear Editor,

Please stop publishing this kind of blatant lies. The people who were there in DC tells us a totally different story. Your credibility is gone with this shameless act. You will be held responsible for your own action.

Mr Fonseka, You are a hero and a great leader. Politics is NOT for you. The people who were supporting the Tigers are backing you just to transfer the possible humiliating loss at another election. DO NOT become a Guenipig.UNP leader was in Norway attempting to get the LTTE leaders saved from you from the final battle. JVP is a party that does not exist anymore.Please stay away from this drama. There are tigers spread all over the world. They hate the Sri Lankan army for it being what it is.They may attempt to take your life again. It is not worth it.

Dear Mr. Fonseka, you are a hero and will be adorned for a long time to come. Politics is not for you. The people who are draging you to this are the same people who were in Norway trying to save the LTTE leaders you had trapped to finish the menace once and for all. JVP does not exist any more either. They are trying to use you as a guenipig to avoid a humiliationg defeat at another election. There is no way people are going to turn their backs to the president. Also there is another thing you have to keep in mind. There are Tiger terrorists still in the country who hate anyone from the army. They may even have another attempt on your life. It is not worth it Mr. Fonseka.DO NOT become a gueni pig for those pigs who betray the country.

Hon Sir, All of us welcome you and we ourselves are ready willing and able to contribute in whatever way possible. Now we are in dire straits indeed with the following mentality. If a man expelled from two schools can rise up to be the highest there is no need for education and also, if a man expelled twice from a military school can claim to have tamed the deadliest terrorist there is no need of a Good General too.

I was present at this meeting and the report is incorrect. Gen. Fonseka never said "Is the motherland going to be destroyed? I will involve changing the dire situation." There other false insinuations. Maj-Gen. Sooriyabandara, MLA, and Ambassador Tissa Wijeyratne did come for the event. Maha Nayake Dharmasiri Thero stressed that victory came through the close cooperation of the triumvirate of President, Defence Secretary and Army Commander.

Dear Fellow Sri Lankans, Please use your energy on important matters at this moment when US is coming up with all allegation against war crimes,, being in the intl diaspora we can do a better job in things needed right now.


What is going on? Which article says that Ven Dhammasiri DID NOT stress that victory came through the close cooperation of the triumvirate of President, Defence Secretary and Army Commander. Hard to find anywhere that some one has used wrong info. I think the news convey the correct information as Gen stated that if the country in danger again no matter whether he is military or not that he will serve the country. Why everybody is trying to read between the lines, okay lets see the message passes that he wants to come to politics , even if that the case who are we to advice him not to....

Anyway what is the big deal about what Ven Dhammasiri or Gen said about. Is it going to bad image about the SL? I think being part of the International diaspora we should server a better job for the country of Sri Lanka which has gone through so much for past years. Washington DC temple always do good causes, at least they did their duty to welcome a Hero from Sri Lanka. Honored the soldiers in a land where they have the freedom of speech. By arguing over and over what is said correct and wrong, aren't we going to plant the wrong seeds again... They did their duty! At a juncture where Intl govts are trying to get Sri Lanka with war crimes, why don't you guys put your energy to go against these reports come form Ian Kelly and others at the Dept of State.
This shows some who are insecure about some news report and trying to clear their images. Don't put Ven Dhammasiri and Gen in the middle of some game, news will do their job. What are we going to gain by talking over and over.. Truth always prevails...
I can't see where it says what Dhammasiri thera has said anything or Gen Fonseka said wrong! You tube has the speech and please listen to it !!!

Thank you SriLankaGuardian for clarifying the matter with the Thero.

Now it is clear it was a false alarm much to the continuing disappointment of anti-national forces.

There was a time when terror leaders were given VIP helicopter rides everyday. General Sarath Fonseka was humiliated and sent to discuss "security" with terror leaders.

We appreciate the blessings of the Maha Sangha in keeping all national forces united.

Those who breed hatred shall be destroyed in their hatred.
