USA is a Destructive force, not a Constructive force-now trying to checkmate China and Russia using Sri Lanka as a pawn.
Posted on February 11th, 2014

By Charles.S.Perera.

 United States of America is a failed State, trying to recover its lost prestige and leadership through a Hitlarian methodology to create a white hegemony in the world- to become a police state. In its blind search for power it uses human rights as a weapon, regime change as an object, arming dissenting groups in countries as freedom fighters against the governments in place as a springboard to destabilise governments, and  impose trade embargoes as a  stranglehold to subjugate nations.

 To-day America has become a world police state with its foot soldiers, the Ambassadors at Large, Assistant Secretaries of State, Ambassadors, NGOs, Human Rights Agencies, and  the American Naval Fleet, replacing  or  reducing the activities the of the  CIA , and its Secret Agents.    America never contributed to the welfare of any country in the world, nor  did it look after the welfare of  the indigenous American Indians at home.

 Americas’ immigrants the  early settlers dispersed the indigenous population from their fertile lands, and killed them with diseases the European immigrants carried with them in to the land of America  and reduced the indigenous population occupied their land and became rich, but the new white American regimes that followed the early settlers never helped  the remaining indigenous population to come out of the hardship and poverty into which they were forced.  Even today after more than two centuries of their occupation the  American Governments encourage foreign immigrations leaving the indigenous population uncared underdeveloped.

 Colonialism not only conquered territories but also colonised the minds of the people it colonised.  Therefore, generations later some of the natives of the ancient colonies  think like the ancient colonialists. Frantz Fanon in his great work , The Wretched of the Earth,  writes of this phenomenon.

 “The colonialist  bourgeoisie, in its narcissistic  dialogue, expounded by the members of its universities , had in fact deeply  implanted in the minds of the colonized intellectuals  that the essential qualities remain  eternal in spite  of all the blunders men may make: the essential qualities of the West, of course. The native intellectual  accepted the cogency of these ideas, and deep down  in his brain  you could always find  a vigilant sentinel  ready to defend  the Graeco-Latin Pedestal.”

 That may explain why the intelligentsia of   the developing countries of black Africa, brown  or yellow Asia that had been once colonised still having that ” vigilant sentinel ready to defend the Graeco-Latin Pedestal” vote with the ancient colonisers- America and the West against those who are like  them (Sri Lanka for instance)   made victims by the Americans and the Western Colonisers.

 That explains also why we find in Sri Lanka those “colonised intellectuals ” of the opposition  not  joining hands with the Government on national issues for reasons distant away from actual dangers Sri Lanka faces to-day.

 It is to those with colonised minds that the USA and the West still appeal,  be it TNA or UNP to betray their own motherland, and still they are those with these colonised minds despite the generation gap , like the Tamils of the Global Federation of Tamils, or the Sri Lanka Tamils of  the diaspora   appeal to USA and the West to intervene against the land in which they or their forefathers were born and bred.

 USA flays democracy, making a mockery of it, and  pretends to be the paragon of human rights despite being the worst violators of human rights in the worlds, and a war criminal using  sophisticated drones killing thousands of civilians in Pakistan boarder villages.

 The blood spattered paths USA had left behind in the world reek with the multitudes killed in Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, those burnt with napalm in Vietnam, massacred and tortured in Iraq, brutally killed, mutilated and the dead desecrated by urinating on them by the American soldiers in Afghanistan, and cities shattered to rubbles, and  leaders allowed to be tortured by mobs in Libya.

 Yet America  carrying the balance of justice in one hand  and gun on the shoulder and a sward  dripping with hot blood of the innocent in the other hand , shows to the world that USA is a paragon of justice and protector of human rights, by accusing Sri Lanka for violation of human rights in the course of elimination of terrorists. 

 Unlike those “illegal” wars of America and its allies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya  etc., the war against terrorism carried out by Sri Lanka Armed Forces was a just war carried again its own terrorist, within its own territory.  In that war like in any other war some civilians may have died in cross fire, shooting by the terrorists or accidentally by the shootings of the soldiers, but not to the extent what  some western writers make it out to be, and they are not be believed because their skins are white.

 America and its western allies have not contributed to the development of any of the poor developing countries, in Africa, Latin America, Middle East, or Asia.  They provided aid and loans  without transferring technology or know how, making the poor countries get trapped in debts to USA and the West.  The World Bank that gave loans dictated how those  loans should be utilised and did not allow the countries to carry out a system appropriate to their culture and economic and social conditions.  No country was allowed to follow any system of government other than that acceptable to USA and the Western allies. Socialism was anathema to USA.

 Strangely it is the same that America demands of Sri Lanka in its resolution to be presented against Sri Lanka, “calls upon the President to develop a comprehensive policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States interests, including respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, economic interests, and security interests.”

 In order to carry out those conditions to keep the developing countries loyal to America and the West they set up the CIA. A one time  CIA Agent and the author of ” The CIA and the cult of Intelligence”, John D.Marks wrote in the preface to his book ” In the high Councils of the Intelligence Community, there was no sense  that intervention  in the internal affairs of  other countries was not the inherent right  of the Unit.  “Don’t be an idealist;  you have to live in the “real world,” said the professionals. I found it increasingly difficult to  agree.”  He adds,

” ……..I found a new job as executive assistant  to Senator Clifford Case of New Jersey.  Knowing of the Senator’s opposition to the war, I looked at my new work as a chance to change what I knew was wrong in the way the United States conducted its foreign policy. ”

 That was in 1970 in the year USA invaded Cambodia.  Has it changed today ? 

In the USA resolution submitted to USA Congress for its approval  there is one clause which reads, “(5)calls upon the President to develop a comprehensive policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States interests, including respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, economic interests, and security interests.”

Why ?  What are the ” comprehensive policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States Interest.” ?  This is how USA perotects itself and carries out wars globally out side USA.

“The end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first brought the navy no respite. Ethnic conflict in the Balkans required navy carriers and cruise missile”launching surface ships and submarines to take part in strike operations against Serbian forces in Bosnia and Kosovo. The bloody terrorist attack on the United States on 11 September 2001 and the subsequent U.S.led war on terrorism involved aircraft carriers, missile-launching ships, SEAL special warfare units, and other naval forces in military operations from Afghanistan to the Philippines. In short, throughout its more than 225 years of existence, the U.S. Navy has defended the United States and its interests at sea, on land, and in the air all across the globe.”

Why should  the member states of  Africa, Middle East, Latin America, Asia that would be sending delegates to the UN Human Rights Council Sessions vote for this utterly high handed resolution  to keep Sri Lanka under  a servile position to United States ?  

Is it not a warning for all developing countries to keep vigil ?

Doesn’t  it  sound a world dictatorship by USA ?

Every intelligent delegates attending the UN HR Council Sessions  in March this year should think well over this resolution which is against Sri Lanka today, but  which may well be against their own countries tomorrow. Therefore they should in all honesty to themselves  vote against the USA resolution against Sri Lanka to show to USA, European Union and other Western Countries that we the developing countries are no pawns in the checkerboard of their politics.

USA and its Allies have not helped any country in the world to develop , but readily entered into those countries to destroy their aspirations, kill or remove their leaders and set pro American and Western puppet Regimes.

Since the commencement of CIA America used  CIA agents to change regimes. In 1950 Jacob Arbenz President of Guatemala was ousted , Mossadeq Prime Minister of Iran was ousted  also in 1950,Salvadore Allende President of Chile was ousted in  1973.

Larry Devlin a former CIA Agents recounts in his memories how he was ordered to kill Patrice Lumumba of Congo. He says, “In September 1960, Mr. Devlin received a cable advising him that he would get an important message from “Joe from Paris.” The envoy turned out to be Sidney Gottlieb, the agency’s club-footed poisons expert, whom Mr. Devlin had met during operations to install listening devices overseas, and who would later become notorious for mind-control experiments using L.S.D.

Mr. Gottlieb said that the assassination had been approved by   President Eisenhower, but admitted that he had not seen the presidential orders. He explained that the poisons, including the spiked toothpaste, had been chosen to make the death appear to result from natural causes.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/24/world/africa/24congo.html?ref=patricelumumba)

More recently when Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of USA every one thought that the world has at last got rid of a  war mongering blood thirsty  USA State Department and the CIA ,  and replaced it with a State Department that would give new hope to the American people and the world, and at last have the good fortune to  see a more civilized  non aggressive America. But situation soon changed. 

The  American State Department changed tactics from involving CIA in wars for changing regimes, and inventing Human Rights, R2P, NGOs, and has roped in the UN Human Rights Commissioner herself a Tamil,  in its new war against developing countries by directly entering into the scene with bombs and artillery and subterfuge the UN Security council to declare war against countries.

Hillary Clinton said that all rebels cannot be put into the same basket as terrorists. Thereafter only those who took up arms against USA and its allies were the terrorists for the American State Department,  the rest were rebels  or freedom fighters. The result is the turning cities in to rubble not caring  for the ensuing deaths of civilians, we saw it in Iraq, Afghanistan ,Serbia and Libya.

USA and its allies  befriended the armed dissenters of the Gaddafi administration in Bengazi as rebels and secretly armed them,  and followed up by sending NATO Forces to bomb Libya.  USA was ready to start a  similar disaster against, Syria which was stopped with the timely intervention of Russia.   They were preparing such aggression against Iran and North Korea.  They helped the dissenters in Egypt and Tunisia to oust the leaders, and creating chaos in those countries

Now it has become the turn of Sri Lanka  to receive the wrath of the USA State Department, for eliminating the terrorists-( the American State Department’s Freedom fighters) without consulting the American State Department.  Sri Lanka for USA is a strategic land mark to control the rising power of China and Russia and to keep them under surveillance.  But Sri Lanka is neither Syria nor Libya therefore USA has to use other methods to bring Sri Lanka to its knees.

Therefore , if Sri Lanka does not subordinate itself USA only means to force subjugation is using  a Tamil ethnic problem and inform the world that Sri Lanka’s elimination of terrorism was a discrimination against the Tamil ethnic Community to which the terrorists belonged.  Therefore USA hopes to rally all countries against Sri Lanka and move a resolution against Sri Lanka for violation of human rights and war crimes.

Barrack Obama’s band of footsloggers the Ambassadors-at-Large Stephen Rapp, Catherine Russell,  Assistant Secretary of State Nisha Desai Biswal came to Sri Lanka assisted by Michele J. Sison the USA Ambassador in Sri Lanka to  sniff around looking for people willing to give false evidence against the  Government and its Armed Forces.  They found an ideal person in the wife of a former terrorist, na¯ve and in eager to impress the white Americans, and seem to have found her version of the terrorist war more acceptable than that of the Government or the President.

 USA State Department then produces those unsubstantiated evidence as factual evidence against Sri Lanka without  producing the witnesses claiming that if their identity is made known they will be prosecuted by the government.  But in respect to the host country, the visiting “dignitaries” and the Ambassador have to present the witnesses  and allow them  to be cross examined by Sri Lanka before their statements are accepted  as evidence against Sri Lanka or its Armed Forces.

 But nothing of the sort has been done and the Darusman Report which was originally a report  prepared for the information of the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is presented as an official document with the condition that the names of the witnesses would be disclosed only  after 20 years.  This is a complete travesty of justice by the USA and their Western allies. 

 USA, EU and all international  reactionary Forces are up against a small country Sri Lanka, which has  no nuclear ambition,  which is not preparing a marine forces  to commence an international warfare, or amassing arms of mass destruction.   

 But only thing Sri Lanka has done is to eliminate a group of terrorists that made the people of the country suffer for 30 long years.  It is now desirous of developing the country and make the people live happily in peace. Is that a crime  ?

 Does that necessitate USA and its allies to rake up the past and investigate what happened  five years ago in the course of the elimination of a ruthless group of terrorists.

 It is evident that USA which is not a constructive force but a destructive force is  now on the war path against Sri Lanka not because of its great love for the Tamil Community, and not because it has any valid evidence against human rights violation or war crimes, but because a divided Sri Lanka would make it more convenient  for America to set up a marine base for its Pacific Fleet.  The Tamils do not understand this and provide means for America’s Agenda to check-mate China and Russia. 

 That is the reason for the USA Resolution which is to be moved against Sri Lanka at the UNHRCouncil Sessions in Geneva in March,2014.  The resolution is evidence of that Agenda on which USA and its allies are moving the resolution against Sri Lanka  

 The last clause no. (5) of the USA  resolution against Sri Lanka is which lets the cat out of the bag. 

 The real reason for the resolution  is to: calls upon the President to develop a comprehensive policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States interests, including respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, economic interests, and security interests. It is another way to tell Sri Lanka that is a small country and it is best that it kneels before the greater power of USA , EU and its Allies.

 The resolution demands:

(1)commends the representatives of the United States on their leadership on United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution (UNHRC) 22/1, adopted by the UNHRC on March 21, 2013, which promotes reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka;

(2)calls on the United States and the international community to establish an independent international accountability mechanism to evaluate reports of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and other human rights violations committed by both sides during and after the war in Sri Lanka;

(3)urges the Government of Sri Lanka to allow unimpeded access for media, international aid agencies, and human rights groups into all regions of the country, as well as to detention sites that may hold political and war prisoners;

(4)urges the Government of Sri Lanka to end its media restrictions, including the obstacles to the flow of information in the North and East, and bring to justice those responsible for attacks on journalists and newspaper offices; and

(5)calls upon the President to develop a comprehensive policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States interests, including respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, economic interests, and security interests.

I appeal to the delegates who will be at the UNHRCouncil Sessions in Geneva, next  March  not to give into global power politics to make of the developing countries Satellite States of the USA power block, and sell their Sovereignty to USA and its Allies in fear of their threats, or for their promises which they do not keep.  

 I appeal to  the  respectful Delegates to vote against the US resolution against Sri Lanka.

    China is the LARGEST TRADING PARTNER of MOST UNHRC members. IF China wants, it can get their support for SL (indirectly for China too).

    But MR govt. has been ANTI-CHINA and PRO-ENDIAN in the last 3 years. So I doubt China will try REALLY HARD to save SL.

    IF China tries really hard to save SL, we should be ASHAMED of letting down China for the benefit of Endia (our ETERNAL ENEMY).

    USA is fully aware that GLP fellow will never say anything against the west as he is being bribed by the American embassy in Colombo. Furthermore MR is too scared to attack the west as he is an agent of the church. Buddhist Sinhalese are his second priority and India first. Why MR govt. stopped action to take back Trino Tanks? Battaramulla is the head office of the Kudu Mudalalis. Is Gampolya glued to the Prime Minister’s seat. Where is the transparency of the MR govt? Gampolya bite back the Sanga. When is the president going to clean the cabinet. Cabinet is full of Kuddas including the Gampolaya.

  3. douglas Says:

    Dear Charles: I agree totally with what you say. If you look at your own analysis, it is no secret to find how the so called “professionals” ,”academics”, “highly placed corporate Big Wigs”, “experienced politicos” etc. have been deployed to achieve and develop political objectives of the political “High Command”. That is the set up in most of these “Big Powers” and no one so far has been able break through that organizational structure. So we know very well that it is “their set up” and that is how it is working.

    If we know the above “situation” how do we organize ourselves to face it; is the “need” that we have to plan and work on our own strategies. Can you say honestly that we have arranged our own house to meet that “Need”? No one can deny that we measured up to that need until we eliminated the LTTE Terrorist out fit; because among other factors, the people were longing for thirty long years to live a day’s life without fear of being killed at any given situation. So the people’s support and endurance were there to harness and this Government did it well.

    But what has happened immediately after that glorified victory? Can you state any one particular “intelligent”; “well calculated” plan of action taken to strengthen our image internationally. We waited till the International Community made a hue and cray to appoint LLRC and their “Recommendations” were not portrayed as “Recommendations to be considered” but accepted to implement and even went to the extent of giving time schedules for implementation. Then every Dick.Tom and Harry were given free access to meet and discuss “Separatist” groups and Politicians in the country and make public announcements which were very detrimental to the Unitary State status and the sovereignty of the country. The Government did “deliberately” filled the very important Foreign Assignments with highly inappropriate, unqualified, personnel and that cronyism was showcased in the international arena. Just look at the way we have hired the services of an Advisory Group in USA at a colossal sum of US$ 66,000.00 a month who did not even know to send a letter to the members of the Congress without making a mistake in spelling “Sri” as “Sir”. The contents were more “detrimental” to us and that too nullified what the Secretary to the President was endeavoring to present to those present at his discussions. Did anyone make a correct assessment of the “standings” of this “Advisory Group” or its share in the business of lobbying before such appointment was made? You also would have heard how the Canadian Government reacted to the appointment of our present HC to USA as the Sri Lanka HC in Ottawa. We only keep boasting on the “development” and that too has a limit where the people will undoubtedly feel board one day. Even that minimal understanding our Government cannot grasp.

    So my point here is : before we find others’ faults and make a huge cry, let us correct ourselves and put our house in order. In my opinion we have made a “mockery” of ourselves in managing the affairs of Governing and having seen that all these “Big Powers” and their “Agents” are “BULLYING” us to the point of destroying our “IDENTITY” as a Country and a Nation.

    ” UNHRC 2014 session should be moved to investigate crimes committed upon Chagossians, compensate them, demilitarise their islands completely and hand back their islands to them completely. A resolution for the purpose will have majority support at the 47 member UN agency. It will bring much needed balance to the UNHRC. Without addressing the issue of genocide of Chagossians it is futile to address human rights violations in Asia.”

    This appears to be an excellent way to defend Sri Lanka. It is very relevant to Sri Lanka and Maldives than any other country. No point arguing whether US is a destructive or constructive force in Lanka Web. Must counter attack , the best way to defend.

    Dilrook should also be sent to Geneva !

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    Nanda,

    I DISAGREE.

    IF USA leaves those islands then the ENDIANS will grab them. Then we are WORSE OFF.

    Or Murutius (closest country to those islands) will grab it. Murutius has a massive TAMIL population. I say Murutius is a Tamil country!! They BOYCOTTED CHOGM in SL because of this. Murutius is our enemy too.

    It sounds like a GOOD move and MORAL but we have to think STRATEGICALLY.

  6. Ananda-USA Says:

    I agree completely with Charles; the USA has become the MOST DESTRUCTIVE FORCE in the world today, especially to innocent peoples of the developing world.

    The USA has become a maddened bull elephant run amok in the china shop of the world’s humanity! The amount of death and destruction the USA has caused during just Obama’s Presidency under the guidance of Hillary Clinton is truly terrifying, because it has used covert means to pit people against each other in civil wars rather than in overt invasions! If Billary Clinton is elected the next US President, that trend in destabilizing and undermining other countries by means overt and covert, fair and foul, to preserve the Western Neocolonialist hegemony will only accelerate.

    Clearly, a UNIPOLAR world with only ONE dominant superpower is inimical to the survival of the weakest and most vulnerable peoples in the world. This trend can be forestalled only by other powerful nations banding together to say to the big bully: ENOUGH OF THIS HYPOCRISY … WE WILL TOLERATE NO MORE!

    And that is indeed possible, for a resurgent energy-rich Nationalist Russia under Vladimir Putin, and a Peoples Republic of China growing rapidly stronger militarily, technologically and economically, seem to be moving to form the nucleus of the resistance to the global bully in the interest of world stability.

    To further support the gist of Charles’s article, I am copying below two comments I made in response to Shenali Waduge’s article on the same topic:

    …………..

    The US motivation for undermining Sri Lanka is captured by the last two words of the US Resolution against Sri Lanka quoted by Shenali: US “SECURITY INTERESTS”.

    At the bottom of it all, is the US FEAR OF CHINA and the consequent need to setup India (as a whole, or part-by-part, depending on India’s continued future existence as a single nation) as a counter to the growing might and economic power of China.

    Having confronted China in the past, seen the economic miracle the Chinese have wrought through sheer hard work and sacrifice, and brilliance of Chinese people in all fields of human endeavor, they have good reason to be fearful if global domination in perpetuity is the American goal. The much balleyhooed commitment of the US to an equal right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people of the world, does not extend to peaceful co-existence with newly emerging superpowers who might overshadow them one day. That, then, is the very essence of Western Neo-Colonialism, contrary to the fig leaves of human rights and democracy they wear to cover their nakedness.

    China is creating a “string of pearls” alliance around the world, and the US is moving to destabilize and undermine those pearls and to create its own “string of counter-pearls” such as Qatar and Tamil Nadu all over the world. The world is teetering on the cusp of a new wave of proxy wars that will dwarf those of confrontation between the NATO and Warsaw pact powers of the not too distant past.

    These is nothing that SRi Lanka do to appease the United States and divert it away from the path it has chosen. Even if Sri Lanka were to fall, the move to setup India as a bulwark against China will continue, irrespective of wether the Democrats or the Republicans hold sway in Washington DC.

    Given that appeasement will inevitably result in the partition of Sri Lanka in two or more states, without even a reliable economic benefit comparable the existing alliance with China, the choice Sri Lanka must make is crystal clear: Sri Lanka must preserve its alliance with China, and other friendly countries, and resist US moves to dismember it the best way it can. There is NO OTHER CHOICE.

    Economic self-sufficiency in critical imports (eg. oil and gas and medicines), and developing links to a global currency alternative to the US Dollar (such as the Chinese yuan) should become high priority goals for Sri Lanka, but under no circumstances should Sri Lanka yield to US blackmail.

    …………..

    The main culprit of Sri Lanka’s difficulties now is the US, not India.

    The US orchestrates the appointment of Indian Americans to positions of political power, in global bodies such as the UN, in financial bodies such as the IMF, in its diplomatic cadre, and in various positions as jounalists and talk show hosts, all to exploit the Indian origin of these Brown Shahibs to camouflage their unrrelenting pursuit of the “Pit India against China” foreign policy. This process has accelerated under Obama, guided by Hillary Clinton as the former US Secretary of State.

    The policy does not emanate from Delhi wary of US policies of the past towards India, although these are willing collaborators if there is any gain to be had for India and Indian politicians.

    This “Pit India against China” foreign policy was formulated during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as the US Secretary of State as a part of a Global Strategy to undermine and create “popular uprisings” in developing nations all over the world and to install “Internet Democrats” allied to the US in power. As we all know, that latter strategy, exemplified by the “Arab Uprisings” has backfired BIGTIME on the US with the most virulently anti-US groups taking hold of every one of those countries, most of which hare now dysfunctional anarchies.

    With regard to Sri Lanka, the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”before China started stringing them together, you may recall how Hillary Clinton visited Tamil Nadu to confer with Jayalolita, Karunanidi and all other TN politicians warring against each other. She urged them to unite against Sri Lanka and the orchestrate their political pressure on the Govt of India to with-hold support for Sri Lanka at the UN using the Lok Sabha elections as a political lever.

    That same strategy is at work now, with the US moving a 3rd Resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN, on the the eve of the next Lok Sabha elections that the Congress party is slated to lose.

    In summary, it is not the Govt of India that is calling the shots here; it is the United States that is orchestrating these moves, pursuing its “Pit India against China” foreign policy formulated and implemented by Hillary Clinton as the US Secretary of Defense.

    God help Sri Lanka, and other develpping nations of the world, if Billary Clinton becomes the next President of the United States. She is a Machiavelli Incarnate!

  7. Nanda Says:

    Lorenzo,

    It is important to Chinese too, route to Africa. They will compete definitely. Chinese navy is much more powerful than the Indians but Endian Air force is stronger. But there are few natives who are Tamils, in such a small community natives have already given up getting back the land.
    It is not a matter of evicting US, it is a matter of bringing them to the same boat, when they challenge us.
    This is very important to USA – their attention will be diverted to it and might let us go.

    Murutius has a well educated Chinese community too. Even Murutius is eyed by a lot of powers.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    Ananda,

    Why Endia is WORSE than USA

    1. Endia CREATED the LTTE.

    2. Endia gave WEAPONS, TRAINING to LTTE.

    3. When we tried to finish off the LTTE in 1987, Endia saved them.

    4. Endian imposed 13 amendment to CONTINUE to ELAM movement after war.

    5. Endia voted AGAINST SL at UNHRC as long as USA did so. In this respect USA is NO WORSE than Endia.

    6. USA gave us weapons C130, BELL 212, BELL 412, SEA KING SPY PLANES, SLNS SURANIMLA (our LARGES war ships), fire finder automatic artillery, waterjet attack crafts, P-51 bombers in 1980s, etc.

    What did Endia give us? NOTHING? Endia Indra radars FAILED us and helped Tamils!!

    7. USA gave us satellite data to DESTROY Tamil floating weapons warehouses. Endia KNEW it all along but didn’t help us.

    8. If you look at HISTORY there were 17 Endian invasions of SL. US invasions NONE. These Endian invasions DESTROYED SL and Buddhism to considerable extent.

    9. ALL anti-SL es-hech-ai-tee people living in SL come from Endia!!

    10. SL’s Tamil problem is because of Endia!!

    11. Endia refused to accept 500,000 Tamilians SL tried to DEPORT.

    12. Endia send thousands of illegals every year to SL.

    13. Compared to Clinton or the WORST US congressman, Jeyalalitha, Karuna, Vaiko, etc. are MUCH WORSE.

    14. Sinhalese cannot STEP INTO south Endia but no such thing in USA.

    15. USA gives us MOST foreign currency while Endia EATS IT UP.

    16. Endia robs our fish everyday. Endia = PLUNDER.

    USA is our enemy #3. Endia is always enemy #2. Endians in SL are enemy #1.

  9. Ananda-USA Says:

    I wrote this in reply to a comment on Shenali Waduge’s article on the same topic.

    ……………..
    Christie,

    You said “US did not train Indian terrorist arm branded Tamil Tigers.
    No parippu bombs in Vadamaracchi. Please read Gota’s War to see how US helped us. Indian vermin, Indian colonial parasites and India is behind all activities against the Sinhalese. US got Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Philippines if it wants help against China.
    China and India is at war about the northern borders between them.”

    All that you have said above is true. But that was BEFORE the Obama Administration came into power with Billary Clinton pivoting US foreign policy towards Asia, and implementing a global strategy to contain China, and to covertly pit sub-national groups in developing countries against each other under the guise of advancing “human rights and democracy”.

    The awful OVERT crimes of the US in the Bush years (1.6 million people dead in Iraq, for example, according to British AMA’s Lancet) are bad enough, but the COVERT crimes under Hillary Clinton’s guidance over many more countries (Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Lebanon, Egypt, Myanmar, Sudan, and now underway in Sri Lanka … are and will be far worse.

    The civil wars and internal conflicts spawned by the US during the Obama Administration, acting both directly and indirectly through its proxies (Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UK, and now Tamil Nadu) are continuing full blast despite the ample evidence that they have BACKFIRED against the US. It has propelled vicious intolerant anti-US groups into power, or currently fighting for power, in those countries, while killing many hundreds of thousands of their citizens, and impoverishing their people without law and order to protect them.

    That same strategy is now being pursued against Sri Lanka, using “human rights and democracy” and “war crimes” to PUNISH Sri Lanka for allying itself with China, the only nation that was willing to offer vast sums of money to grow Sri Lanka’s infrastructure, to provide the weapons we needed to defeat Tamil terrorism that threatened to disintegrate our Motherland, and to provide unwavering diplomatic support to protect and defend Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and independence.

    These moves by the US against Sri Lanka, is as I wrote before, are part and parcel of the new overall “Pit India against China” foreign policy focused on Asia; this will continue unabated irrespective of its success or failure against Sri Lanka.

    This strategy of the US is likely to sow more discord and excite centrifugal tendencies within India but will ultimately FAIL in its attempts to undermine and contain China, which will prevail in its attempt to peacefully regain its lost lustre at the world’s pre-eminent nation. THe US, on the other hand, will become a country viewed with suspicion and anger by the majority of the peoples of the developing world, for trying to impose its Western Neocolonialism on people struggling to emerge from the effects of centuries of the old Western Colonialsm.

    I LOVE the US, but I GRIEVE that it has lost its way. The US has allowed various idealogues on the left and the right to subvert the message of its founding fathers and to act as gunslingers vying for notches on their guns to earn public adulation and support by waging wars and inflicting pain worldwide on innocents.

    In particular, I find US moves to undermine and destroy Sri Lanka particularly repugnant, because here is Asia’s oldest Democracy of Asia, that has preserved its democratic form of government through a long period of foreign-inspired strife and war, that has uplifted its people’s health, education and literacy, labor laws, protection of women and children, and ensured equity in the wealth of their country to its people, has fought to defeat a vicious internationally supported terrorist movement declared to undefeatable by Western Pundits counseling appeasement, now being demonized and assailed in pursuit of their own geopolitical agendas, as if it is some intolerant, discriminatory, dictatorial pariah state!

    Those developed democracies who should applaud and welcome Sri Lanka in to their ranks as a model democracy that has demonstrated how even weak can prevail against all odds without abandoning the democratic form of government to defeat terrorism and uplift their people, are now rushing to destroy it, not in the interest of human rights or democracy as they allege, but to preserve their own economic and geopolitical hegemony in an increasingly competitive world where their dominance is being challenged.

    This is just pure HYPOCRISY by those who merely exploit “human rights and democracy” to achieve their own “inhuman and anti-democratic” geo-political goals in the world as a whole. They hope to hide their evil motives under a flood of deceptive mass media communications and pontifical pronouncements using puppet organizations funded and nourished by them, but in the end they will fail to control, or win the hearts and minds of people all over the world, and will stand exposed as murderous hypocrites to universal condemnation!

    Diaspora money has deleterious effect on society – Wigneswaran

    ‘No one can escape karma’

    By Shamindra Ferdinando
    Island.lk
    February 11, 2014

    Northern Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran has lamented that money sent by Tamil Diaspora has had a devastating impact on the lifestyles of Tamils here.

    The retired Supreme Court judge is of the view that foreign funds have caused irreparable damage to society, especially the student community.

    CM Wigneswaran was addressing a gathering at the annual Prize Giving and 60th Anniversary of Varani Central College last week.

    Those who had received political asylum overseas during the conflict had started sending money to their relatives living here, the CM said. Years back those striving for a good life had no option but to work hard but today money from abroad made things easier; it was spent on mobile phones, computers and Internet.

    Wigneswaran stressed the need for addressing social issues caused by the Diaspora money.

    Instead of studying hard, Tamil girls and boys had taken to watching movies, particularly those with sexual themes as well as violence and exchanging love messages via mobile phones, the Chief Minister said.

    The retired judge lashed out at those who had abandoned traditional value systems and embraced a new culture where the youth smoked, consumed alcohol, narcotics and even engaged in street fights. Those receiving easy money from abroad were of the opinion that they could achieve anything by throwing around money, CM Wigneswaran said, adding that the youth, both male and female, tended to offer money to law enforcement officers when they were nabbed for road accidents.

    Referring to Sinhalese boys and girls worshiping their parents and elders on auspicious days, Wigneswaran lamented that some Tamil youth abused their parents and teachers. The Chief Minister said that Tamils had worked extremely hard during those difficult days, primarily depending on education to secure a better life. But, today, the vast majority of Tamils were of the opinion that money from Diaspora would be enough to achieve whatever they desired, the Chief Minister said.

    Commenting on welfare measures implemented by successive governments, the Chief Minister emphasised that people should keep in mind that free books, uniforms as well as free meals might not be available in the future. He said the student community should be told what the country expected of them and the days when such facilities hadn’t been available.

    The Chief Minister said that people should realise that bad deeds would result in punishment in one’s lifetime and one would benefit from good deeds. Warning that no one could escape karma, the Chief Minister went on to recollect the fate of former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak, Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and Pakistan’s Musharaff.

    He said: “Our pupils must pause to think of lives led by our elders in the past; what has happened in politics; changes that have occurred in our lives and what will happen in the future if this continues.”

    The Chief Minister said that despite numerous difficulties, the NPC was working hard to improve the economy through self employment projects as well as cooperative activities and there was no point in the NPC’s work if the younger generation was only interested in migrating abroad or living on Diaspora money.

    China opposes other countries interfering in Sri Lanka’s domestic affairs

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 12, Beijing: China today strongly criticized the countries that are pressuring Sri Lanka on the human rights issue saying that people in Sri Lanka have the wisdom and capacity to manage their internal affairs.

    China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying at a regular press conference on Wednesday said China supports the Sri Lankan government in safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

    “We believe that people in Sri Lanka have the wisdom and capacity to manage their internal affairs and oppose some countries’ interference in Sri Lanka’s domestic affairs under the pretext of the human rights issue,” Hua said.

    The Foreign Ministry spokesperson was responding to the media query regarding the four-day official visit of Sri Lanka’s Minister of External Affairs Prof. G. L. Peiris to Beijing from February 10-13 at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart Minister Wang Yi.

    The spokesperson said Vice President Li Yuanchao met with the Sri Lankan Minister and Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with him on February 11.

    During the meeting the two sides have exchanged views on China-Sri Lanka relations as well as regional and international issues of common interest.

    Gratified with the momentum of growth of bilateral relations, the two sides agreed to deepen practical cooperation in various fields, and based on that, to fully expand maritime cooperation and jointly build the maritime silk road of the 21st century, the spokesperson said.

    During the talks, Peiris has briefed China on Sri Lanka’s post-war reconstruction and national reconciliation.

    “The Sri Lankan side briefed us on its post-war reconstruction and national reconciliation. China applauds Sri Lanka’s efforts to promote economic and social development and improve people’s livelihood and human rights,” the Spokesperson said.

    She said China always maintains that countries should dissolve differences in the field of human rights through dialogue and communication based on equality and mutual respect.

    “We oppose politicizing and imposing double standards on the issue of human rights,” Hua said.

    The Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson called on the international community to “respect the right of the Sri Lankan government and people to independently choose the path of development and create a favorable external environment for stability and prosperity of Sri Lanka.”

    Douglas.

    I agree that every thing is not hunky-dory in our country. There may be lapses, short comings. Nevertheless despite all those negative issues the country has gone far forward from what it had been a few years back. But at the moment when we are facing a greater danger coming from outside we should leave behind those matters that irritate us to be taken up on a later date and concentrate on the pressing problem we are confronted with now.

    Now we have to be united to show those enemies of our country that it is not they who can solve our problems but we the people of the country, and that we will not any one to interfere with our internal problems and for that we stand with the Government and the people.

  13. Dilrook Says:

    Over-reliance on US defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton’s “string of pearls” assertion is unwise which exposes the ignorance of those who claim it. There is no “string of pearls” which is a pro-US and pro-Indian terminology aimed at disrupting China’s peaceful westward maritime thrust. It should only be used to describe the Indian bias of highly beneficial Chinese investments in South Asia on a superficial level, not at any geopolitical or economic level.

    China reiterated its “Silk Road” strategy when the Chinese foreign minister met his Sri Lankan counterpart yesterday. What must be appreciated is China is reaching to Europe and the Middle East in multiple ways over sea, land and air. If Sri Lanka refuses to participate in the Silk Road over sea it will be economically detrimental to us. Sri Lanka is the only country in the region where China is not its largest trading partner. Sri Lanka’s largest trading partners are USA and India which indicates a grave economic misalignment problem.

    The illegal and void ab initio Indo-Lanka Peace Accord (1987) is a huge hindrance to the Silk Road as India’s petty anti-China policy has not only excluded itself from strengthening ties with its largest trading partner (China) but also tries to disrupt the emergence of the new Silk Road. It will do heaps good for Sri Lanka to nulify the Accord.

    Despite shortcomings in the Foreign Ministry Sri Lanka still can make the maximum impact against the proposed resolution if it acts with foresight not to allow the proposed resolution intimidate the leaders into submission. These shortcomings are no excuse not to support the Lankan case. Every attempt must be made to “localise” the problem from its current “internationalised” approach.

    A counter demand to domestically investigate Tamil political parties, LTTE, IPKF, Tamil Diaspora and their international hosts can have impact when the matter is up for discussion at the Council. Leaving out these parties in an investigation is disastrous.

  14. Ananda-USA Says:

    Charles and Dilrook … well said! I agree with what you have said.

    I also want to point out a few things vis-a-vis India’s evolving attitude towards Sri Lanka, and the impact of recent US involvement on that evolution.

    1. As we all know, in the first few decades after India’s independence, the US started to rely on and support Pakistan because Pakistan assisted in supporting the Mujahideen battle the Soviet presence in Afghanistan. The US wanted to, and succeeded, in creating a “Vietnam debacle” for the USSR in retaliation for the role played by the USSR against the US involvement in Vietnam. It was tit-for-tat. THe practical outcome of that alliance between the US and Pakistan was that it strengthened Pakistan militarily in its territorial disputes with India in Jammu-Kashmir.

    Lacking support from the US, India allied itself with the USSR, getting all the military hardware and military manufacturing assistance it needed together with economic assistance. Again, it was the fault of the US that it drove India into the arms of the Soviet Union. At that time, India thoroughly resented the role of the United States in South Asia to such an extent that it played a role in Indira Gandhi’s decision to initiate and support Tamil terrorist groups to punish Sri Lanka for moving towards a capitalist market economy and a closer alliance with the United States.

    That was a mistake on Indira’s part, because all Sri Lanka was trying to do was to escape poverty and the socialist mindset that was limiting economic growth and capitalize on free market economic policies that are firmly in place today, not only in Sri Lanka …. but also in India and Russia! It just happened that Sri Lanka made the move too early, and India … laboring under its pretensions to regional hegemony … saw it as an move inimical to India!

    Summarizing, India did not always see eye-to-eye with the US, and even today treats US warily, knowing full well that the US is trying to “Pit India against China”, but also is trying to counterbalance Pakistan’s influence in Afghanistan by inviting India to get involved there. The latter appeals to India also, because it gives India access to Pakistan’s Western Border also through Afghanistan … for any future eventuality in the struggle to the death between these two countries of South Asia.

    2. India’s posture in the final stages of the Eelam War was to support Sri Lanka in winning the war, help rehabilitate the war-affected Tamil population without supporting any moves to either impose a separatist state on Sri Lanka, or supporting any moves to indict Sri Lanka on war crimes charges, and enter into an alliance with a stable Sri Lanka to protect its Southern Maritime Border and forestall Tamil separatism in India itself. Let us recall that India is confronted all of its land borders in the North by powerful avowed enemies with claims on its territory. Its Southern maritime border with Sri Lanka as a friendly neighbor was its safest, giving rise to a series of decisions by the Indian government to locate its critical military, scientific and technological assets in its Southern States.

    3. So what has changed since then that has led to an increasingly strident attitude by India towards Sri Lanka? The answer is the INTERFERENCE of the US in India’s internal politics, particularly by Hillary Clinton, who united, egged on, and orchestrated pressure by Tamil Nadu politicians on the Congress Party on the eve of the Lok Sabha elections. Before that happened, the Congress Party was always able to handle Tamil Nadu politicians when their actions was contrary to national interest, but no more; it is now weak and reeling back. I am certain that loads of US Govt money is pouring into the coffers of Tamil Nadu politicians …. and it is all undermining not only the internal cohesion of India, but also the ability of the National Government of India to act in the national interest of its people, not just Tamil Nadu. Therefore, external foreign interference by the US within India is beginning to undermine the ability of the National Government of India to act in the national interest, and makes it subject to blackmail by sub-national groups supported by foreign powers.

    Another example of a similar event in India was the unravelling of the joint agreement with Bangladesh on stemming the illegal immigration of Bangladeshis into India. That agreement fell apart because of Mamata Banerjee’s opposition to the agreement which would have solved a problem continuing to fester on India’s Eastern border.

    4. This should give some insight into why it is dangerous to both India and Sri Lanka to allow countries such as the US and the UK with geo-political ambitions, and their proxies (other countries, embassies, NGOs, democracy-promoting organizations, missionaries, etc etc) to interfere in the internal politics of the country, because it undermines national cohesion, pits the people of the country against each other, and degrades and dilutes the ability of the national government to act in the national interest.

    China gets their FIRST EVER land mobile ICBM. Only Russia and China have land mobile ICBMs. We congratulate China on this milestone! Best defence is OFFENCE. Jeyawewa!

    “The photograph of the missile reportedly leaving a manufacturing plant in China was posted online Jan. 31 in what a military enthusiast website stated was the transfer of the missile from a factory to a military unit.

    The photograph shows the mobile missile covered in blue tarp and escorted by security police from the factory.

    The Chinese military frequently discloses such images online as part of efforts to highlight its nuclear forces, among the most secret elements of Beijing’s military forces.

    According to the online posting by a user identified only as “witten,” the missile was described as the Second Artillery Corps’ Dong Feng-41 (DF-41) ICBM.

    The bulletin board stated that the missile is considered China’s SS-27 ICBM, a reference to Russia’s road-mobile Topol-M missile.

    The user stated that the 16-wheeled transporter erector launcher and missile was concealed by the tarp in order to conceal its “infrared defense capabilities.”

    The online report also said the DF-41 is “lower to the ground and shorter” than the SS-27 and was adapted to transit on Chinese “mountain terrain, rail and road tunnels.”

    According to the post, the lower ground profile allows the missile to “to move from tunnel to tunnel during the gap when satellites are out of range”—a reference to China’s 3,000 miles of underground nuclear tunnels and production facilities for nuclear forces.

    The underground nuclear network was disclosed two years ago as part of a Georgetown University arms control project that labeled the system “the Great Underground Wall” of China’s nuclear facilities.

    Disclosure of the missile photo came two weeks after the Washington Free Beacon was the first to report on Dec. 17 that China had conducted a second flight of the DF-41.

    The new missile is considered a major step forward in China’s strategic nuclear arsenal. The missile is difficult to track because of its mobility. It also is assessed by U.S. intelligence agencies to be outfitted with up to 10 multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles capable of reaching the United States.

    The flight test was monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies from a launch at the Wuzhai missile launch center in Shanxi province, according to U.S. officials.

    An earlier flight test took place July 24, 2012.

    The new mobile missile is estimated to have a range of between 6,835 and 7,456 miles.

    The Pentagon has yet to list the DF-41 as part of the Chinese strategic arsenal, currently made up of a number of older silo-based missiles and newer DF-31 and DF-31A mobile missiles.

    The Air Force National Air and Space Intelligence Center in a report made public in May did not name the DF-41 but referred to the development of a new long-range ICBM with multiple warheads.

    “China may also be developing a new road-mobile ICBM capable of carrying a MIRV payload, and the number of warheads on Chinese ICBMs capable of threatening the United States is expected to grow to well over 100 in the next 15 years,” the report stated.

    Officials said the reference to the new ICBM was meant for the DF-41, whose existence remains secret within the U.S. government.

    A Chinese language banner on the road where the photo is taken has been censored, suggesting the banner may be related to the missile factory or the military unit receiving the missile.

    The censorship also indicates that the photo is likely an official leak.

    China analysts say the People’s Liberation Army frequently discloses new or developmental weapons systems, including stealth jets and unmanned aerial vehicles, as part of preparation for a later formal unveiling of the weapons systems.

    Former military intelligence official Larry Wortzel told a congressional hearing recently that the DF-41 is an element of China’s strategic nuclear buildup.

    “China is enhancing its nuclear deterrent capability by modernizing its nuclear force,” Wortzel said Nov. 20. “It is taking measures such as developing a new road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile, the DF-41. This missile could be equipped with a multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV), allowing it to carry as many as 10 nuclear warheads.”

    Wortzel also said it likely China could outfit the DF-41 with penetration aids—decoys and other simulated warheads designed to fool U.S. missile defense sensors.”

    Russia will support Sri Lanka against US-resolution

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 14, Colombo: Russia on Friday said that it will support Sri Lanka against a resolution sponsored by the US and other Western nations for an international probe into alleged war crimes in the final phase of the three-decade long war against the Tamil Tiger terrorists.

    A visiting senior Russian diplomat said today that Russia has come to the state of officially supporting Sri Lanka at the forthcoming United Nations Human Rights Council Session in Geneva next month.

    Addressing a media briefing in Colombo, the Director of the Department of Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Russia Anatoly Victorov said the attempts to impose an international inquiry into the allegations of war crimes would be counterproductive.

    He said that Sri Lanka’s war situation could not be compared by any means to the situation existed in Rwanda.

    The Russian official said the topic of human rights has been politicized extremely in the international political arena and the human rights issue in a country should not become a reason to meddle in the internal affairs of a country.

    He said Sri Lanka is a confidant of Russia, which is one of the five permanent members in the UN Security Council and a member of the UNHRC, and the two countries maintain a similar stance on issues in the international fora despite the differences in political and cultural aspects.

    Another permanent member of the UN Security Council, China also has opposed the resolution to bring an international inquiry against Sri Lanka and offered support to the Sri Lankan government in safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

    China said that people in Sri Lanka have the wisdom and capacity to manage their internal affairs and opposed some countries’ interference in Sri Lanka’s domestic affairs under the pretext of the human rights issue.

    The US says it is not pleased with the Sri Lankan government’s progress in addressing the accountability issue and human right violations and the international community’s patience is wearing thin.

    The US with the co-sponsorship of the UK has decided to table a third resolution building up on the two previous resolutions it sponsored and adopted by the UNHRC2012 and 2013.

    UK Prime Minister has vowed to use Britain’s position in the UNHRC to see to get the resolution adapted at the council’s 25th session beginning on March 04.

    Caught Red Handed

    Secret Tape Reveals US-backed Plot to Topple Ukraine’s Democratically-Elected President

    By Mike Whitney
    “Information Clearing House – “Counterpunch”
    InformationClearingHouse.info

    February 12, 2014

    “In the latest debacle for the US State Department and the Obama Administration, US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was caught on tape micro-managing Ukraine opposition party strategies with US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. That the Ukraine regime-change operation is to some degree being directed from Washington can no longer be denied….The taped conversation demonstrates in clear detail that while Secretary of State John Kerry decries any foreign meddling in Ukraine’s internal affairs, his State Department is virtually managing the entire process.”

    – Daniel McAdams, “‘F**k the EU’: Tape Reveals US Runs Ukraine Opposition“, Ron Paul Institute

    Washington is at it again, up to its old tricks.

    You’d think that after the Afghanistan and Iraq fiascos someone on the policymaking team would tell the fantasists to dial-it-down a bit. But, no. The Obama claque is just as eager to try their hand at regime change as their predecessors, the Bushies. This time the bullseye is on Ukraine, the home of the failed Orange Revolution, where US NGOs fomented a populist coup that brought down the government and paved the way for years of social instability, economic hardship and, eventually, a stronger alliance with Moscow.

    That sure worked out well, didn’t it? One can only wonder what Obama has in mind for an encore.

    Let’s cut to the chase: The US still clings to the idea that it can dominate the world with its ham-fisted military (that hasn’t won a war in 60 years) its scandalized Intel agencies, its comical Rambo-style “Special Ops” teams, and its oh-so-brilliant global strategists who think the days of the nation-state will soon be over hastening the onset of the glorious New World Order. Right. Ukraine is a critical part of that pipe dream, er, strategy which is why the US media puts demonstrations in Kiev in the headlines while similar protests in the US are consigned to the back pages just below the dog food ads. In any event, the crisis is likely to intensify in the months ahead as Washington engages in a no-holds-barred tug-o-war with Moscow over the future of civilization.

    For bigwig strategists, like Zbigniew Brzezinski, Ukraine is a war that Washington must win to maintain its position as the world’s only superpower. As he sees it, the US must establish outposts throughout Eurasia to diminish Russia’s influence, control China, and capitalize off the new century’s fastest growing region. Here’s how Brzezinski sums it up in Foreign Affairs in an article titled “A Geostrategy for Eurasia”:

    “America’s emergence as the sole global superpower now makes an integrated and comprehensive strategy for Eurasia imperative…Eurasia is home to most of the world’s politically assertive and dynamic states. All the historical pretenders to global power originated in Eurasia. The world’s most populous aspirants to regional hegemony, China and India, are in Eurasia, as are all the potential political or economic challengers to American primacy…

    Eurasia is the world’s axial supercontinent. A power that dominated Eurasia would exercise decisive influence over two of the world’s three most economically productive regions, Western Europe and East Asia. A glance at the map also suggests that a country dominant in Eurasia would almost automatically control the Middle East and Africa…

    What happens with the distribution of power on the Eurasian landmass will be of decisive importance to America’s global primacy and historical legacy.” ( “A Geostrategy for Eurasia”, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Foreign Affairs, 1997)

    Okay, so the not-so-subtle Brzezinski is telling US policymakers that if they want to rule the world, they’ve got to take over Eurasia. That’s pretty clear. It’s the Great Game all over again and Ukraine is one of the biggest trophies, which is why the US has allied itself to all kinds crackpot, rightwing groups that are stirring up trouble in Kiev. It’s because Washington will stop at nothing to achieve its objectives. Of course, there’s nothing new about any of this. The US frequently supports violent, far-right organizations if their interests coincide. Here’s a little background on the topic from Eric Draitser in an article in CounterPunch titled “Ukraine and the Rebirth of Fascism”:

    “In an attempt to pry Ukraine out of the Russian sphere of influence, the US-EU-NATO alliance has, not for the first time, allied itself with fascists. Of course, for decades, millions in Latin America were disappeared or murdered by fascist paramilitary forces armed and supported by the United States. The mujahideen of Afghanistan, which later transmogrified into Al Qaeda, also extreme ideological reactionaries, were created and financed by the United States for the purposes of destabilizing Russia. And of course, there is the painful reality of Libya and, most recently Syria, where the United States and its allies finance and support extremist jihadis against a government that has refused to align with the US and Israel. There is a disturbing pattern here that has never been lost on keen political observers: the United States always makes common cause with right wing extremists and fascists for geopolitical gain.” (Ukraine and the rebirth of Fascism“, Eric Draitser, CounterPunch)

    Death squads here, jihadis there; what difference does it make to the big shots in Washington?

    Not much, apparently.

    But, wait, what’s all this talk about the US being on the side of anti-Semites and fascists in Ukraine? Is that true?

    It sure looks that way. In fact, there was a funny story in the World Socialist Web Site about Assistant Secretary of State Victoria “Fuck the EU” Nuland which shows how far these people will go to achieve their objectives. In this case, Nuland, who — according to the WSWS — is “the grand-daughter of Jewish immigrants who fled to America to escape pogroms in Tsarist Russia”…was seen “handing out cookies in Maidan square to Svoboda thugs who venerate the mass murderers of Hitler’s SS.” (“Leaked phone call on Ukraine lays bare Washington’s gangsterism“, Bill Van Auken, World Socialist Web Site)

    Nice, eh? So Vickie was having a little snacktime with guys who’d probably shove a knife in her back if they were given half a chance. That’s what you call dedication. By the way, Nuland’s “husband is Robert Kagan, the right-wing foreign policy pundit who served as the founding chairman of the Project for a New American Century, the neo-conservative Washington think tank that played a key role in the political and ideological preparation for the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan.”

    The fact that Obama and Co. are directly involved in this latest would-be coup, doesn’t surprise anyone. According to a recent poll conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center, “almost a half (45%) of Russian citizens think that protests in Ukraine have been provoked by Western special services.” By “special services” we presume the survey’s authors mean US Intel agencies and US-funded NGOs which have a long history of poking their noses in other country’s affairs. Here’s a statement by Rep Ron Paul in 2004 to the US House International Relations Committee which helps to throw a little light on the issue:

    “It is clear that a significant amount of US taxpayer dollars went to support one candidate in Ukraine. …. What we do not know, however, is just how much US government money was spent to influence the outcome of the Ukrainian election.

    Dozens of organizations are granted funds under the PAUCI program alone, (Poland-America-Ukraine Cooperation Initiative, which is administered by the US-based Freedom House.) and this is only one of many programs that funneled dollars into Ukraine. We do not know how many millions of US taxpayer dollars the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) sent to Ukraine through NED’s National Democratic Institute and International Republican Institute. Nor do we know how many other efforts, overt or covert, have been made to support one candidate over the other in Ukraine.

    That is what I find so disturbing: there are so many cut-out organizations and sub-grantees that we have no idea how much US government money was really spent on Ukraine, and most importantly how it was spent.” (“What has the NED done in Ukraine?“, Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell)

    The fact is, the USG gives away tons of money to all types of shady groups who carry out their agenda. As far as Ukraine is concerned, we actually have a better idea of the money that’s been spent than Paul thinks. Check out this video of Nuland addressing various industry groups and admitting that, “Since the declaration of Ukrainian independence in 1991, the United States supported the Ukrainians in the development of democratic institutions and skills in promoting civil society and a good form of government…We have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals.” (“Washington’s cloned female warmongers“, Finian Cunningham, Information Clearinghouse)

    5 billion smackers to topple a democratically-elected government in Ukraine while 8 million Americans still can’t find a damn job in the US. That tells you a lot about Obama’s priorities, doesn’t it?

    Last week’s fiasco surrounding Nuland’s leaked phone conversation has clarified what’s really going on behind the scenes. While the media has focused on Nuland’s obscenity, (“Fuck the EU”) it’s the other parts of the conversation that grabbed our attention. Here’s a brief summary by the WSWS’s Bill Van Auken:

    “The call (exposes) the criminal and imperialist character of US policy in Ukraine …What the tape makes clear, is that Washington is employing methods of international gangsterism, including violence, to effect a political coup aimed at installing a regime that is fully subordinate to US geo-strategic interests…

    The precise goal of US efforts is to shift political power into the hands of a collection of Western-aligned Ukrainian oligarchs who enriched themselves off of the private appropriation—theft—of state property carried out as part of the Stalinist bureaucracy’s dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. In doing so, it aims to turn Ukraine into a US imperialist beachhead on the very border of Russia, whose territory it also wants to divide and subjugate to neocolonial status as part of its drive to assert American hegemony throughout the strategic landmass of Eurasia…

    Nuland makes clear that behind the scenes, Washington is dictating which leaders of the opposition…should enter the government to swing it behind Washington and what role the others will play…”(“Leaked phone call on Ukraine lays bare Washington’s gangsterism“, Bill Van Auken, World socialist Web Site)

    Same old, same old. Like we said earlier, there’s nothing new here, nothing at all. All the blabber about “democracy” is just public relations crappola. It means nothing. US elites want to trim Moscow’s wings, set up shop in Eurasia, control China’s growth, be a bigger player in the continent’s oil and natural gas markets, export its financial services model, and make as much money as possible in the 21st century’s hottest market, Asia. It’s all about profits. Profits and power.

    But then, you probably knew that already.

  28. Ananda-USA Says:

    The “Caught Red Handed” article highlights why foreign NGOs of any ilk … humanitarian, democracy building, religious ….. ad infinitum, ad nauseam … funded and controlled directly or indirectly by foreign powers, should be prevented from interfering in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka.

    Funding for promoting “good government and democracy” from the US should be REFUSED by the GOSL, and all foreign funds given to civil society organizations and political parties should be channeled through the GOSL after review for compliance with Sri Lanka’s laws and National Security imperatives.

    No doors should be left open for the Western NeoColonialists to undermine and destabilize the country in their own interest under various self-serving pretexts.

    Sri Lanka’s National Interest in ensuring the welfare of its own people, should be the PARAMOUNT, and indeed, the ONLY consideration.
