The West rides the Tiger in an unflinching battle for Regime-Change in Sri Lanka.

The recent sad events involving the President of our country and the Ex-Colonial Power that “ƒ”¹…”engineered’ matters so as to degrade and diminish the standing of a visiting Head of State must be seen in its truly ignoble context. It is well known that the Western Powers “”…” this includes the ‘White Commonwealth’ and associates such as France and the USA “”…” have an unquenchable desire to administer  to Sri Lanka the “ƒ”¹…”medicine’ that they have given “ƒ”¹…”ad lib’  to sundry nations across the world. These victims “”…” the so-called “ƒ”¹…”pariah states’ – are deemed guilty of bucking “ƒ”¹…”Western’ guidelines on how nations should “ƒ”¹…”behave’ in matters both external and internal. Thus, killing terrorists is “ƒ”¹…”de jure’ if pursued under their aegis by a modus operandi approved by them. The issue that has drawn the ire of the Nabobs of the West is that in Sri Lanka the extirpation of Terrorism was achieved through native genius and by methods that made the Western Anti-Terrorism agenda look foolish. /This has greatly offended the International Oligarchs who see themselves as the custodians of the global moral order.

Greatly peeved that a small and obscure country did brilliantly and efficaciously what the “ƒ”¹…”Western Powers’ failed to do for decades despite the billions spent and thousands of lives sacrificed, the inflammatory issues of “ƒ”¹…”genocide’ and “ƒ”¹…”war-crimes’ were craftily introduced to transform a great success into a national shame. In all this the Western Press “”…” liberally oiled by the funds received frm the Tamil Diaspora “”…” played a heroic role. The President of Sri Lanka “”…” a compassionate Buddhist “”…” was pictured as a New Caligula diabolically bent on exterminating the Tamils. This myth was enthusiastically adopted, by the political establishment in countries such as Great Britain and, what was the propaganda of the defeated became the policy of the State. That MR was a tyrant in an immoral nation “”…” an outrageous falsehood “”…” became the “ƒ”¹…”received view’ for Powers in the West as well as their lackeys in Sri Lanka.

It is against this background that we must view the recent tragic-comedy in England. Knowing full-well that the goodwill of the Westerners is a sine qua non for the well-being of this isolated and misjudged Island, the President embarked on a hazardous “ƒ”¹…”repair job/ based on personal contact with the likes of David Cameron “”…” the Prime Minister. He must have considered this a matter of great urgency given the deteriorating relations with India and the dire possibility of a boycott of the Conference of the Commonwealth Heads of State to be held in Sri Lanka next year. If the latter eventuality comes to pass, the Tamil Separatist Movement will gather global strength and the well-being of Sri Lanka put in considerable peril. We are an Import-Export Nation and our survival depends critically on healthy relations with our trading partners. The threat of sanctions hangs as a Sword of Damocles over our embattled nation.

That the future is uncertain and scary is no grounds for the abandoning of resolute action. It is now clear that no amount of cajolery on our part will win the support of the West.  MR’s latest misadventure is proof of this. It is also clear that India will be – at best – an unfriendly neighbor in the in the years ahead and that Tamil Separatism will receive once again help from the land that originally fomented and nourished this pestilence. Given this gloomy background, the need of the hour is to do urgent repairs at home and not seek palliatives overseas. This “ƒ”¹…”homework’ falls into two divisions “”…” military and civil. On the military side, the need to shore up navel defenses and to strengthen the forces in the North and East against the very real threat of a foreign-backed  “ƒ”¹…”invasion’ of this region by “ƒ”¹…”freedom fighters’ is obvious to all except liberal cranks and haters of Sri Lankan sovereignty. A formidably armed Sri Lanka is the greatest deterrent to adventurism of all brands “”…” both local and foreign.

There are other issues  on which frankness and courage are required “”…” characteristics  that are lamentably wanting in MR. His  recent wheeling and dealing with India and the West has shown an uncharacteristic pusillanimity that has not done any good to the country. It must be made clear “”…” once and for all “”…” that an Autonomous Tamil State or Regional Authority within Sri Lanka will never be allowed. Such a concession will result in rump-status for the Sinhala nation and  a new “ƒ”¹…”Kalinga Adventure’ for the Tamils. The shilly-shalling of the President on this vital issue is unforgivable – to say the least. There are other issues on the civil side that cry out for attention and these have nothing to do with global politics or parochial (or communal) matters.  It has to do with the moral character of a leadership that hopes to win the admiration of the people. If some of those currently in power are answerable to the charge of corruption “”…” a complaint frequently made by enemies of the current leadership “”…” the high moral stand on external matters cannot ge sustained. If the leadership speaks with a forked tongue  – patriotic hallelujas for the masses and obsequious  homilies of compliance for the powerful foreigners “”…” then things will surely go awry. The need of the hour is the frank acknowledgement by our leaders of the many-sided dangers we face as a nation with limited resources and no true and stalwart friends in the world. While advertising achievements “”…” and these are truly impressive “”…” we must alert the public to the dangers we face  in an unfriendly and demanding world. Instead of gadding around the world the President should stay at home and do his homework “”…” which includes dismissing those ministers who are distinguished more by the quantity of fat in their belly than brains in their head.

    “Americans speak with a forked tongue” Former Native American Leader.

    I believe it was the Red indian Chief Sitting Bull who said “white men speak with forked tongue” so why limit it just to the americans? The “whites” have been very crooked when dealings with the Sinhalas in the past and now all because we have no good and able leaders!

  3. Lorenzo Says:


    You are right.

    And we send our PRESIDENT, DEFENCE MINISTER and DEFENCE SECRETARY to a***lick American, British and Indian ENEMIES and send ONLY the army commander to meet the Chinese Defence Minister!!

    Now the Chinese would be saying, SINHALAS SPEAK WITH A FORKED TONGUE.

    We can’t disagree.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    Our govt slept with American dogs and now woken up with fleas crawling up their a***.

    Now our leaders (when things go wrong) want to sleep with the Russians and Chinese. Are they that stupid to sleep with flea infected GOSL and wake up with fleas up their a***?

    I don’t think so.

    This is the SAME THING that will happen AFTER the govt waste BILLIONS on the Tamil only north. These ungrateful people will vote for TNA anyway. That is CONNECTED to this. Our enemies are together.

    HE Lorenzo the king,

    Now your friend Run-Nil is in China. What is happening ?

  6. nandimitra Says:

    The sri lankans especially the Sinhalese have no say in the matter it is the politicians who have taken upon themselves to play this game of servility. They either run to India ,europe or china to sell the rights of the Sri Lankans who are unfortunately not privy to the deals they make. The price is made by ordinary citizens. Until the Ruling classes are made to account for their treachery selling SL will be the name of the game. If they had any character the 13th amendment would have been done away or at least put to a referendum None of our politicians deserve any praise or defence. They must be condemned.
