The lyrics of an Old West Indian Calypso worded thus: “We are a peaceful nation, struggling struggle, but we don’t look for trouble just ask around.But when foreign faces, from unknown places talk about taking over we aint backing down! ……” rings very true to the Mahinda Rajapaksha aphorism which of late gets intensified to this effect and needs to be applauded!

 What with the Amnesty International bickerings about Human Rights violations, the Hillary Clinton allegations of Army abuses on civilians, The Ban Ki Moon stutterings on what he thinks is best for Sri Lanka et al, it is amazing that the President has maintained his calm and offered pragmatism as a counter measure to all the attempts by foreign sources to undermine Sri Lanka’s Post War progress which signifies the man’s direction of dignity and composure where those who know it all are well aware that all these bickerings by Sri Lankas adversaries are on the singlemost instigation of the defeated Tamil Tiger supportives around the world hell bent at getting back in bitterness over their defeat and the vanquishing of the Tamil Tiger terrorists!

 It becomes very significant that President Mahinda Rajapaksa recent assertions are based upon his own convictions with unstinted support from an adoring as well as pereceptive majority of Lankans that he will not be swayed by worthless attempts to undermine him.

While noting that Sri Lanka’s friendly ties with the international community was strong as ever and would always work towards strengthening existing relations he was however not prepared to betray the country’s honour and bow down to unreasonable conditions or pressure exerted by outside forces which he has every right to do in the face oif all his accomplishments both on the battlefiels as well as his manouvering through the minefields of his own Parliament with his particular brand of administrative dexterity which is surely sending Sri Lanka in the right direction towards recovery from decades of conflict and related destruction inflicted by impure sources which had no right to even their existences.

What greater patriotism can someone of his stature have when he says to the world that “although we have strong and friendly relationships with other nations we are not ready to bow down in front of injustice and unreasonable conditions. We would never betray the honour of our Motherland. It comes before everything else.” It sends out a message to the world particularly those factions therein with the single motive of bringing down his adminstration through wrongful accusations with hardly a semblance of tangible proof or evidence beyond conjecture and speculation backed of course by the unfortunate circumstances of the victims in the morass which the world has now come to know as the IDP. which has to be the next fait accompi for the President to clear and restitute as one of his biggest challenges!

 His entreaties to the vast audiences he addresses of late ring out a prudent message to the people of Sri Lanka to put petty differences aside, stamp out personal objectives toward an unattainable power which perhaps is a clear message to his political opponents using all the wrong ploys to discredit him and join hands to propel the country towards lasting peace and prosperity.

 That the Presient is well aware of his adversaries’ direction with justification towards his apprehensions was made very clear when suggested that “it is unfortunate to note that some of our own countrymen who are in search of personal glory at the expense of the Motherland are engaged in a malicious campaign to discredit the Government and the war heroes in order to achieve their selfish objectives.

 In total response and respect to someone who has laid the foundation towards this objective the Nation must now rally in huge support for this brave and charismatic leader of our Nation whom we as proud Sri Lankans the world over recognize as the saviour of the Sinhala Nation!!

 In the same token the world has to recognize the imperative importance of not hampering the progress of a brave Nation and its leader through unprovoked acts of interference based on misgivings of a few petty individuals, some who have loads to clear by way of accumulated problems surrounding their own enclaves be it the USA, The UN, Amnesty International or the EU to name some who are all engrossed in the collective albeit impure objective of dancing to the tunes of storytellers and disgruntled terrorist supportives whose exaggerations by far overwhelm the reality of what is presently transpiring within Sri Lanka as a concerted and very visible aspect of Nation re-building towards posterity!

 Any attempts to undermine this by foreign powers have to be identified as deliberate in order to denigrate the progress of Sri Lanka for reasons best known to themselves as well as an unwarranted breach of the protocols governing the sovereignity of a Nation through bold albeit petty attempts at ursurpance of the mandate granted its leader by his people!

Perhaps they need to be not too politely asked to back off !
