Posted on March 8th, 2014

Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha says:

It would be irrational to believe that Sri Lanka will replace Diego Garcia. The point that Diego Garcia’s lease is going to run out in 2016 and revert to Mauritius since the nation of Mauritius claims the archipelago where the island of Diego Garcia belongs would mean the end of the US presence in Diego Garcia. Both China and India have developed long range missiles that can reach Diego Garcia and Mauritius does not want a US presence when she reclaims Diego Garcia. Neither does the nation of Mauritius.

This article claims that the reason behind the US support of Navi Pillai’s claim of human rights abuses is to finally divide Sri Lanka for the purpose of establishing a base in the new nation which I believe would be Eelam. That would fly against the recent approach of the US to the Maldive nation in order to build a military base in that nation. The Maldive nation turned down the US request based on the reason that it will offend the security concerns of Sri Lanka and India. India does not want the US to build a military base so close to her and neither does China. In addition taking in the recent events in the Ukraine neither does Russia.

Out of the two nations China being a security council nation and a nation being targeted by the US in the “containment policy” where India plays a major role will not allow the US to use any methods to realize Eelam for the explicit purpose of building a military base at the very underbelly of India and just a few thousand miles from mainland China. That will not happen.

the only nation who has even a slim chance of dividing Sri Lanka on trumped up charges is India who possibly with long term interests create a military base on the island of Sri Lanka. Again that will not happen since that will be an affront to China. One also must not underestimate Colombo who in spite of India’s full support of the Tamil Tigers, defeated them and defeated the concept of Eelam. Colombo will not allow United States, the very nation who has drafted the last two human rights resolutions, to divide her and then create a military base either in Jaffna or Trincomalee. This will be one area where both India and Sri Lanka will have in common.

Just two days ago Russia aggressively moved into the Ukraine and annexed the Crimean peninsula. The government of the Crimea voted yesterday to join Russia and accept the Ruble as their currency. The Ukraine is but one of many successes by Russia who has already won in the Middle East against the US regarding Syria and Iran.  A few days ago Russia launched an intercontinental missile thereby deliberately violating the SALT treaty (Strategic arms limitation Talks) and made a mockery of the agreement reached a few years ago between Obama and Putin to jointly reduce their nuclear stockpiles.

Right now the US is threatening sanctions on Russia which if implemented Russia has threatened back that she will dump the dollar, probably shut the gas and oil flow to Europe and slap sanctions on the NATO nation of which Great Britain economically has the most to lose. It will also severely damage the US dollar as the currency of international trade. This is a fervent wish of China who wants to replace the dollar with the Yuan as the currency of international trade. Currently Russia and China have signed an agreement of an 85 Billion dollar deal to sell Russian oil to China. If that deal is done without using the Dollar it would be a major blow to the status of the US dollar as the international currency of exchange.

Finally this would be the last thing the Tamil diaspora, Tamil Nadu or New Delhi would want and that is a US military base in the new nation of Eelam and under the belly of India that confronts Colombo and China. What most likely happen is that the US will continue to withdraw. The Diego Garcia base will go to the nation of Mauritius and the US has put into place drastic monetary cuts on her military. The US military is to be reduced to 450 thousand standing men, a cut on a slew of military hardware ranging from jets to the navy and a cut in the military budget from roughly 600 Billion to 400 Billion which is far more than the Congress of the US expected.

In addition this places more of the burden on the nations she formally protected in one way or the other. That means India and Pakistan will have to spend more on their military budgets and so does South Korea, Taiwan, Germany and Japan, which has been given the go to build her own defenses. This also includes the EU nations who have been under the military umbrella of the US since the Cold war began.

The greatest expansion of military bases was just announced by President Vladimir Putin of Russia who plans to build eight military bases across the world with three of them in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua and one in the islands of the Seychelles and another in Singapore which is one of the four banking capitals of the world. Considering the beligerant nature of India during the war against Tamil terrorism in Sri Lanka and her role in post war Sri Lanka, Colombo should offer Putin a military base in Trincomalee. That could also go for China. For once either or both powers have military bases in Sri Lanka the notion of an independent Eelam is finally laid to rest and India will be reduced in stature and power, while that of Sri Lanka will rise both as a strategic nation that India dare not attack in any way for that would mean an attack on Russia and China.

Finally considering that Sri Lanka has already signed a comprehensive strategic partnership with China does away with any notions by the US to build a military base by carving out Eelam. In addition if China builds a military base in Sri Lanka it will give a boost to the strategic partnership and Colombo will be the recipient of advanced technology including the funds that come from such a military base.

    I hope Diego Garcia will not go back to Mauritius; the Indian Stae in Africa. Diego Garcia should be given back to South Africa.
    It is funny to hear Trinco should be given to Russia. India created its terrorist arm branded Tamil Tigers to get hold of Trinco to anchor Soviet nuclear subs it was getting.
