Reading Between the Lines – Cross-Cultural Jargon

Nearly all my contributions to LankaWeb were generally accepted by majority of the readership.
A few became obnoxious, impolite, way-out-of-civility. Simple minds of a few readers are unable to Read-between-the-Lines!
My last contribution….. National Government – Sealing the Motor-Mouths?

The point is, I am following several opinions from many countries outside Sri Lanka, and some of them do hold a prejudiced negative opinion of the Sri Lankan politicians in general, and Mahinda Rajapaksa in particular.
Some of them are 100% behind the Tamil cause and do not care if the LTTE barges in with or without heavy baggage like ISIS, with their head-chopping blades. There is an anti-Chinese element, mainly due to fear.
The fact that Chinese moved in with their money-machine, like the Chinese have virtually taken-over Africa, has upset both USA & Indians. Sri Lanka is a huge strategic Prize-to-Lose! For that particular reason, My3 Sirisena was invented, which solved many simple problems, like giving India a foot-up.
However, any Political-savvy operator could see that the entire “house-of-cards” on Sri Lanka politics only needs a mild South-Easterly wind. Need no details on this matter.
The elevation of General Sarath Fonseka to hold the Baton of a FM was not an idea from RW or CBK. The “odd-couple” do not think this far…
Fonseka was quite satisfied regaining his brass buttons back with the title of General. And of course the Pension with No questions asked about his son-in-law.
The brain-wave of Field Marshall was flown-in from a foreign power, by selling RW-CBK to gloat that a FM title will keep Fonseka away, from “pissing-inside-the-tent”. ……. Get the Drift? RW-CBK must have been having Moet-et-Chandon after hearing that. Both are upper-class snobs.
The foreign brain-wave read deeper into the minds of the two old politicos RW-CBK, who will definitely be “put-out-to-grass” when the Parliamentary elections results are announced.
It is a done-deal that RW will no longer reside at Temple Trees. MR will one-way-or-the-other creep in between the lovely Araliya trees, and then only the proverbial “the-sh*t-will-hit-the-fan”! There is bound to be a massive commotion between the warring parties; UNP-SLFP-UPFA-JVP. Possible riots amongst the Sinhala-Sinhala which will open the opportunity to LTTE-ISIS to move-in with speed.
The Terrorism will take a new dimension without actual manpower moving. The quad-rotor UAV Drones will do most of the damage. The Moratuwa University failed in their experiment due to lack of both Software & Funding.
There is only one leader with military credibility, a Sinhala Giant, who understands the entire geo-politics as a soldier, Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka! The Defense machinery most likely will accept Field Marshall as the leader who is competent to “put-out-the-flames”, as he did before.
Sri Lankan Sinhela will accept him as a Saviour. India will keep-out.
As before credible support will emerge from China – Pakistan – Israel. And Israel has the best Military UAV-Drone Technology available today! Both USA-EU-China-Russia and the rest will Wait & Watch.
This makes the coming Parliamentary Election so important to have a clear mandate to whoever comes out as winner!
