 When foreign PR firms are paid billions by Western governments to make false videos and films, when people are paid to protest and create mayhem against political candidates also by Western governments, we need not be surprised that the same tactics are likely to be deployed in Sri Lanka. The end goal is simple – to create unrest, confuse people, pitch people and groups against the others and eventually set the stage to justify the need for external interference. People need to be alert now more than ever before.

 Iraq was invaded on lies. Afghanistan was invaded on lies. Milosevic is no war criminal – but he is dead. Gaddafi was killed. Saddam was killed. The ‘rebels’ that attacked Libya were not Libyans. The ‘rebels’ fighting in Syria are not Syrians. The Islamic terrorists are imported from Western satellite states, trained by the West and then ordered to create mayhem. Ecuador embassy admitted they cut Wikileaks internet after pressures from John Kerry. A protestor at Trump rally recently admitted being paid $3500 to protest – http://abcnews.com.co/donald-trump-protester-speaks-out-i-was-paid-to-protest/ Leaked memos have shown how Soros paid Macedonian students $1500 to think of regime change ideas.

 October 2016

§  3 naval ratings hospitalized after being attacked by over 300 Tamil villagers of Arippu in Silavathura, Mannar – it is a point where drugs enter the country from Kerala to Sri Lanka. The eventual plan in clearing Wilpattu is to make a clear access through Mannar and thus enabling another illegal entry point from India to Sri Lanka. It would be a field day for any mischief makers. Sadly, the authorities are blind, deaf and dumb to all advice to safeguard the country and empower authorities to safeguard the country not cripple them.  

§  Sarath Wijesooriya & PurawesiBalaya claiming that because they helped bring the President to power, the govt should arrest the military intelligence head and arrest military intelligence officers. We can well guess where this diatribe is getting at with sole aim of disbanding the military intelligence and thus entirely crippling the security of the country. This is complimented with a plethora of other paid activists from NGOs, civil society heads, rights activists, media, academics, professionals, Church fathers all demanding war crimes tribunals against the military but total silence against LTTE crimes. Why should foreign salaried NGOs dictate national security affairs or what should be included into the country’s new constitution? The people didn’t ask for a new constitution – they did. Why they did so is becoming very clear with a string of chorus now chanting federalism, further devolution on one end and on another separatism, self-determination, colonization, get out Sinhalese, no buddhisization etc at the other. Who are pulling the strings for these chants we may well wonder. What countries and their intelligence are paying for these misadventures?

§  The Catholic Church has been questioned for its links to LTTE over the years. Fathers have also been at the forefront of protests against Chinese Port City during the height of elections in January 2015. After going to silence mode, the father heading the anti-Port City protests has again come out with protestors showcasing seasonal protests spearheaded to cause chaos and public unrest as well as incite the police to attack them so that the attack can be twisted to dilute the powers of the police.

§  Regular increase in discovery of arms and ammunition raising questions of where these are coming from, who are bringing them and what is the message being delivered by allowing them to be discovered! Obviously these are all signs and signals that at any time an armed struggle can be started! When armed forces are weakened and intelligence operatives are in prison it is a piece of cake for any mischief makers. Even the politicians are at risk – who is there to safeguard them. They do not seem to see this angle of things!

§  Shiv Sena group on the same lines of India inaugurated in Sri Lanka with 4 attacks on Christians taken place already in the East signalling India again attempting to destabalize Sri Lanka this time by pitching religious groups against the other.

§  Retired military intelligence officer mysteriously ‘commits suicide’ claiming he killed editor Lasantha Wickrematunga. What about the 3 motorcycles with 2 riders each that followed Lasantha’s car?

 September 2016 – Jaffna protests headed by Chief Minister demanding removal of Buddhist sites, stopping Sinhala colonization, buddhisization, removal of military etc.

 August 2016 – Buddhist temples & Head Priests regularly threatened by TNA & their supporters to scare them into leaving the area. Chief Incumbent of the Sambodhi viharaya in Mullaitivu threatened by TNA Provincial MP. Several Buddhist sites and Buddhist statues have also been vandalized. Damaging historical monuments is a war crime and these destructions should be tabulated and sent by an Organization to the UN for their response.

 July 2016 – Government silent as Jaffna University students commemorates LTTE dead. Open commemorations, violent pro-LTTE protests and posters have become a regular feature since January 2015 knowing the GOSL will not take action against them.

 May 2016 – Eastern Chief Minister publicly berates a senior officer ‘Just get out of here’ to score brownie points in front of the US envoy.

 April 2016 – TNA Leader Sambanthan & more than 50 others storm army camp in Paravipachchan in Kilinochchi http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=144182 (probe hushed up) – this is the same TNA that the EU Election Observer Mission Head John Cushnahan who in his report of 2004 said TNA and LTTE were one and the same & recently the Canadian Federal Court has upheld the Canadian Immigration investigative report that also says LTTE and TNA are one and the same

August 2015 – 38 NGOs even demanded the removal of Sir Desmond de Silva from the panel of international lawyers. His arguments have clearly exonerated legally all allegations of war crimes against the armed forces.  

 February 2015 – Government gives into pressure from TNA, foreign governments, UN and India to reduce military camps, remove high security zone areas, give lands without asserting whether IDPs even had lands to demand lands or whether the IDPs were of Indian origin

 January 2015 – Protestors stone Jaffna court complex. First time Tamils have become so unruly after May 2009.

 2004 Athurugiriya/Millennium City debacle – on a fictitious allegation that the then PM the same PM of today’s life was at risk the code names of intelligence officers working for the nation were given to the LTTE. One by one all 32 of these brave men were killed by LTTE. The raid during UNP rule by police officers seeking political favors Udugampola ended up a carnage of the states intelligence apparatus. Appeals have been made since to the UNP leadership to learn lessons and not make that same mistake. Sadly, these advice fall on deaf ears. The intelligence that weathered the deaths of 32 colleagues are again hounded by the same political parties and sadly officers seeking favors do not seem to understand the damage being done.

 Let us take another example of how issues are hyped through media then organized groups are brought into create mayhem. July 2013 – Water was the issue and protests were due to water. The media projected picture that protestors were ‘unarmed’ – they were not. Army was projected as ‘intentionally’ killing, if so why would the army kill only 3 and then injure themselves (OIC and 8 soldiers were injured) since we have to believe the protestors were unarmed! The said factory had been operating for 18 years. Was it only in the 18th year that the water got contaminated? The media did not report that groups had attempted to burn the factory the day before the road protests. Rathupaswela village was the most affected by water while Weliweriya was not. Who spurred the villagers to become violent and were there external players among the villagers and is this not why after 18 years of silence suddenly 5000 protestors were blocking the road? As for the ‘unarmed’ part – the protestors were carrying petrol bombs, sand bottles – how is this peaceful, unarmed protests, these items don’t just drop from the sky? Why would unarmed peaceful protestors attempt to take over guns of the soldiers? The whole world attacked Sri Lanka following this but not a word was reported against the UK police when they shot an unarmed black man in 2011 – UK riots went on for 11 days from 4th August, over 100 homes and businesses were destroyed and damage was over 200million pounds. It is easy to upstage an innocent protest, turn it into a mass riot with organized protestors and create the SPRING for regime change. http://www.hirunews.lk/66652/organized-group-hurled-stones-at-security-forces-weliweriya-magistrate-inquiry-told

 At another level there are various internet sites paid to create further mayhem by fictitious news spreading. Their job is to create fear mongering and spread lies. They are working to create stories and paid to tarnish the good name of Sri Lanka’s armed forces and intelligence apparatus all with the intent of disbanding it setting the stage for chaos in Sri Lanka.

 Now that we have identified these paid elements and the type of tactics they are basically ordered to do it is not too difficult to finalize the list of parties making the payments – those on the payroll include politicians, political parties, unions, student union leaders, academics, professionals, business people, media, some are even paid to pretend to be patriotic just so that they can feed their paymasters information… quite a web of cruel people making money from destroying countries, lives and the whole environment. Taking these together and analysing them drawing the players in the background it is not hard to figure out the overall gameplan. Connect the dots for every incident taking place. Ask questions – who benefits by the action and what is the expected reactions.

What happens when the law & order malfunctions? Then it justifies external interference and intervention. Already UN officials are arriving as if on season ticket. We have lost count of their arrivals but their reports will be well coordinated and be released to a plan. The Geneva Resolutions all creating precedents and illegal are with sole aim to treat Sri Lanka as an experiment to see how country’s can have their sovereignty taken away and diluted and be remote controlled via Geneva. At the other end India is using the Tamil card and the economic route to Indianize Sri Lanka.

 It is bewildering that none of the Sri Lankan Parliament can even comprehend the level that our sovereignty has been crippled by the manner that the government has ceded powers or taken the line of appeasement. These are irreversible changes. They are happy to be attacking one another hoping to sit in power when soon the country is likely to be governed by either Geneva or from Delhi.

    Another bureaucracy to divide and conquer Sri Lanka by pitting minorities against the majority community.

    All these EXTRA LEGAL “Commissions” having AUTONOMY will detract from the POWER of the ELECTED PARLIAMENT to ENACT LAWS that apply EQUALLY to all CITIZENS!

    ALL of these PROPOSALS are INITIATED and SPONSORED by those who want to DESTROY Sri Lanka as a UNITARY and SOVEREIGN Nation!

    First DIVIDE the nation regionally and hand over power to separatists, then EMPOWER & PROTECT them in each of the regions OUTSIDE their control as well!

    NEVER implement such a AUTONOMOUS Commission in Sri Lanka!

    UN Special Rapporteur recommends Sri Lanka to establish an Independent Commission on minorities with powers
    Thu, Oct 20, 2016, 07:39 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Oct 20, Colombo: The United Nations Special Rapporteur on minority issues, Rita Izsák-Ndiaye, who concluded a 10-day mission to Sri Lanka today, recommended the island nation’s government to establish an Independent Commission on Minorities under the Constitution with a clear mandate, powers, resources and autonomy.

    The Special Rapporteur visited Sri Lanka from 10 to 20 October 2016 at the invitation of the Sri Lankan government to assess the current situation of national or ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities in the country.

    Issuing a statement at the end of her visit, the UN official commended the current administration for taking progressive steps in relation to the inclusion of the voices of the general public, including civil society representatives and ordinary citizens into the ongoing reform processes.

    She noted that although both the Public Representations Committee on Constitutional Reform (PRC) and the Consultation Task Force on Reconciliation Mechanisms (CTF) have reached out to and listened to thousands of people through oral and written submissions and drawn staff from diverse ethnic and religious groups, including women, the minorities feel excluded from other areas of decision-making and power structures.

    “As a consequence of the long conflict, there is a trust deficit vis-à-vis the State as well as between the communities in Sri Lanka,” she said.

    Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye observed that while according to the Constitution, the national languages of Sri Lanka are Sinhala and Tamil, English being the link language, in reality, several challenges exist with respect to language, particularly in the public domain. Law enforcement officers and members of the military deployed in Tamil-speaking areas often lack Tamil language skills, the Rapporteur noted.

    The UN official recognized that In many places, there is a peaceful co-existence of different religious groups where the construction of temples, churches or mosques are carried out without hindrance and religious services are enjoyed without discrimination or harassment.

    The Special Rapporteur recommended the government to promptly take necessary steps towards the establishment of an independent, dedicated minority rights mechanism in charge of coordinating minority issues, with the inclusion of representatives of minority communities.

    Among the short-term recommendations, to be implemented as soon as possible are measures to ensure full protection of all minority places of worship as well as heritage, repeal and replace the Prevention of Terrorism Act, gradual release of remaining land held by the military to the civilians, review the cases of security-related detainees with a view to their swift release and ensure the smooth and transparent process of establishment of the Office of Missing Persons by January 2017 with adequate budget and inclusive composition.

    In long term, she recommended the government to step up measures and allocate sufficient budget to ensure the implementation of language policy and consider establishing affirmative action policies for under-represented communities in the government, the judiciary, armed forces and law enforcement, along ethnic, religious, linguistic as well as gender lines.

    The Special Rapporteur will present her full report and recommendations to the United Nations Human Rights Council in March 2017.

    The European Parliament, which BREXIT EJECTED from BRITAIN for INTERFERING IN and DOMINATING the Legal anmd Administrative System in Britain (7 out of 10 laws enacted in Britian sinceUK joined the EU were created in Brussels), now wants to DO THE SAME in Sri Lanka!

    I say, HELL NO! KICK these BUGGERS out and let thheir GSP+ with them! FREEDOM before Money!

    European parliament offers its expertise in drafting Sri Lanka’s future policies and plans
    Thu, Oct 20, 2016, 09:31 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Oct 20, Brussels: The President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, has said that it was the hope of the European Parliament that they would be able to carry on cooperation between Sri Lanka and Europe based on mutual trust.

    Mr. Schulz made this remark when Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and his delegation met with him at the European Parliament in Brussels Wednesday for further discussions on application to regain the European Union’s GSP+ tariff concession that was withdrawn in 2010.

    Mr. Schulz said Sri Lanka was already gaining the necessary political, economic, social and security stability required in this regard.

    The European Parliament head added that he greatly admired the hard work, leadership and commitment which was dedicated, when President Maithripala Sirisena was appointed as the leader of Sri Lanka on January 08th to bring the country to a new path.

    The Prime Minister expressing appreciation for the friendship and confidence the European Parliament showed in support of the President and himself, briefed the gathering at length on the future development plans and the democratization process of Sri Lanka.

    The Premier emphasized that the Sri Lankan government is giving its full attention towards not only meeting the social needs of those affected by the war, but also on healing the hearts and minds of those who have been hurt in the process.

    Mr. Schulz said he was more than happy to share the innovative process which brought the European Parliament, which comprises 28 countries, 508 million people, 300 parties, and 751 representatives, to one tradition and the drafting of its rules and regulations. He expressed his willingness to provide the same experience and expertise for the processing of Sri Lanka’s future plans.

    The President of the European Parliament also informed that a delegation from the European Parliament, would engage in a visit to Sri Lanka within the next two weeks.

    The Sri Lankan delegation has also met with the various parties representing the European community in order to present the case to obtain the support Sri Lanka requires for its development activities and restoring the GSP+ concession.

    The Premier and the delegation held discussions with the European Group of the Greens and the European Free Alliance led by the Vice-Chair of the Subcommittee on Human Rights Barbara Lochbihler,. The future and process of environmental conservation was the focus of this discussion.

    The delegation also held discussions with the István Ujhelyi, the Vice-Chair of the Committee on Transportation and Tourism. The discussions were focused on and plans that have been created to boost the Sri Lankan tourism industry.

    They also met with Joseph Daul, Chair of the European People’s Party, at the EPP headquarters in Brussels, where the delegation presented further facts pertaining to the GSP+ submission.

    The European parliamentarians after listening and taking into account all the facts presented by the Sri Lankan delegation, expressed their willingness to support Sri Lanka’s future plans.

    The representatives of the European Parliament said they have been keeping a close watch on the workings of the country and commended the plans made by the Sri Lankan Good Governance movement, which champion social justice.

    However, they pointed out that it was unfortunate that the Tamil Diaspora living in Europe lacked full details of the positive program in effect in Sri Lanka, and urged the government to set up mechanisms to enlighten the Tamil Diaspora to understand the complete and unfalsified picture. They offered assistance if the government needs any support in this regard.

    The Premier and Sri Lankan delegation participate in an observation tour of the Port of Antwerp and Antwerp World Diamond Center. Mr. Marc Van Peel, Chairman of the Antwerp Port Authority, which is Europe’s second largest port complex, and the Deputy Mayor of Antwerp, explained the port functions to the visiting delegation in great detail.

    Following the tour of the Antwerp Port, they visited the Antwerp Diamond Pavilion – the diamond processing and exhibition center and learned that the diamond jewelry line named Peacock, imports the required gems from Sri Lanka.

    Leading gem and jewelry manufactures of Belgium who were in attendance, told the Sri Lankan team that they hope to import and use more Sri Lankan gems in the future.

    SOME EUROPEAN BLUE FLY HAS SAID HE IS ***A…MAZED*** AT HOW SRI LANKA HAS CHANGED FOR THE BETTER. SRI LANKANS TOO ARE MORE ***ARE MAZED***AT HIS AMAZEMENT.

  4. plumblossom Says:

    The countries out to destabilize Sri Lanka and create an Eelam are the US, EU, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India alongside the TNA, other separatists and the LTGE terrorists. It has been extremely obvious this has been the case for the past almost two and a half decades not just now. Therefore it is quite good for all Sri Lankans to be informed about this fact and be very vary of this fact.

  5. plumblossom Says:

    There is no Tamil Homeland! It is a completely bogus invention. Even the most recent Pandyan invasion just prior to the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century by Aryachakravarthi only invaded the Jaffna peninsula only and the settlement of the Jaffna peninsula was very sparse. All earlier invasions by the Cholas etc. they invaded Anuradhapura and Pollonnaruwa and these was for short periods of time and there were no settlements whatsoever at all as a result. Most Tamils were brought over by the Portugese and the Dutch to work on Tobacco and Indigo plantations set up by the Portugese and the Dutch after the 16th century.

    There were from around 600BC over 43 attempted invasions of the island by the Chola, Kalinga, Pandya, Vijayanagar and other South and Indian Kingdoms etc. However only six succeeded. There was one invasion by a Malayan kingdom too. These were during Sinhala Kings Walagamba, Dhutugemunu, Dhathusena, Vijayabahu I, Parakramabahu II, Buvanekabahu V and Parakramabahu VI times. However invaders invaded Anuradhapura, Pollonnaruwa and stayed only for a short period of time and left the island once they were overwhelmed. There were no settlements due to these invasions except the very last invasion by Aryachakravarthi of the Jaffna Peninsula.

    When looking at Sri Lanka’s history, it is extremely obvious that from 600BC to around 1400AD there were three kingdoms, all Sinhala Buddhist, Ruhuna, Pihiti or Rajarata and Maya or Malayarata. Rajarata encompassed today’s North Central, North Western, Northern and even the Central Province. Ruhunu rata encompassed today’s Uva, Eastern and Southern Provinces. The Kandyan Kingdom from 1400AD encompassed most of the island inclusive of today’s Northern and the Eastern Provinces except for the Jaffna Peninsula. Even the Jaffna Peninsula was invaded and occupied by force by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan) and actually did belong to Rajarata earlier and later the Kandyan Kingdom.

    Today’s provincial boundaries were drawn up by the British colonialists as per their divide and rule policy and the Sinhala people were not consulted when drawing up these provincial boundaries. In the meantime, most Sri Lankan Tamils of today were actually brought over during Dutch and British times to the Jaffna Peninsula and elsewhere to work on tobacco and indigo plantations which were planted extensively in all the colonies since they were much sought after and made a lot of money for the colonialists. Therefore they are recent arrivals and cannot claim homelands or separate states whatsoever.

    The usual practice when a colonial power hands over their former colonies is to hand it over to its original owners. Therefore the British colonialists should hand over the Kandyan Kingdom to the Kandyan Sinhalese from whom they took it by force. Since the Kandyan Kingdom encompassed the North and the East, these provinces too should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese who are its rightful owners. Even the Jaffna Peninsula should be handed over to the Kandyan Sinhalese since it was part of Rajarata and was forcefully occupied by Aryachakravarthi (Pandyan).

    Since this has now been done already, the TNA, other separatists or the US, UK EU, Canada, Norway, Sweden and India cannot demand that present day Northern or even the Eastern provinces be provided any more powers or be made into federal states since this is totally going against the history and archaeology of the island and totally going against the rights of the Sinhala people who also have fundamental rights to claim the entire island inclusive of the North and the East as their homeland first and foremost.

    History which was dropped as a subject should be taught at school since Sri Lanka has a very long history and it is very beneficial for the next generation to learn the history and archaeology of the island based on actual archaeological findings, archaeological ruins, artefacts, stone inscriptions, ola leaf writings and so on. Otherwise people will believe any bogus history invented by interested parties to their benefit, not based on facts but invented for their own nefarious purposes. Today these settlers such as the Sri Lankan Tamils are inventing history for their own purposes without any archaeological evidence whatsoever to back up such bogus claims. Therefore it is imperative that history is taught as a subject in school as soon as possible.

  6. plumblossom Says:

    The Sri Lankan Tamils demanding a ‘Tamil homeland’ is a bogus demand as per the history and archaeology of the country. Even a few months back, a discovery was made of an archaeological site in Anuradhapura dating back to 800BC and included beads, pottery etc. Anuradhapura was a large village by 900BC and there was an expansion into a city by 600BC. There is plenty of evidence of pre-historic cave discoveries such a the Fa Hien caves, the Bellanbendi pellessa and other cave discoveries especially in the wet zone of pre-historic sites or iron age and stone age discoveries (due to the clay in the wet zone preserving such sites well). The oldest skeleton found on the island is 37,000 years old. We know there were four tribes Yaksha, Naga, Raksha and Deva and around 600BC there was an influx of people from India, possibly Bengal or Orissa. These people together with the four tribes Yaksha, Naga, Raksha and Deva together then formed the Sinhala nation. This is why Anuradhapura which was a village by 900BC expanded into a city by 600BC.

    Does all this archaeological evidence not prove that the Sinhala people are the descendants of the indigenous people of the island i.e. the yakshas, Nagas, Rakshas and Devas? Much later by around the 16th century due to the Aryachakravarthi invasion of the Jaffna Peninsula the Sri Lanka Tamils migrated but into the Jaffna peninsula only. Later during the Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial times, there were further migrations of Sri Lankan Tamils (called Malabars meaning those from the Malabar coast of India) for purposes of planting tobacco and indigo brought in by the colonialists.

    Of course other people such as the Arab traders, Malays, then the Burgers (descendants of colonisers) also migrated to the island too.

    Does this not then prove that this island inclusive of the North and the East is the homeland of all its people? So is this demand for a separate state by the Sri Lankan Tamils (called Malabars meaning those from the Malabar coast of India), descendants of recent migrations to the island, not absurd and unacceptable?

    Let us state in the constitution that this island is the homeland of all its people, for the sake of justice and fairplay, by everyone concerned.

  7. plumblossom Says:

    There are further historical facts and figures which prove that this ‘Tamil homeland’ demand is completely bogus. Apart from many Buddhist ruins, a very important part of the Sinhala Buddhist civilization which is the extensive hydraulic system that still prevails in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. The Sinhala kings built over 10,000 (please check this figure in research papers for accuracy) large, medium and small scale irrigation reservoirs in Rajarata and Ruhuna encompassing today’s, North Central, North, Eastern, North Western provinces. For example Yodha Wewa Reservoir in today’s Mannar in the North was built by the Sinhala King Dathusena. The Pavatkulam Reservoir in Vavuniya in the North was built by the Sinhala King Mahasen. The Kanthale Reservoir in the East was built by Sinhala King Agbo II. All of the irrigation reservoirs present in the North Central, North, North Western and East were built by Sinhala Kings.

    In fact, to get the water to flow out of the reservoirs in a smooth manner, the Sinhala Engineers invented the biso kotuwa or the besi kotuwa (as in wathura besi kotuwa), a type of valve pit, or a type of water outlet out falling from the reservoir where water pressure can be managed so as not to damage the tank bund. Another use of the Sinhala irrigation engineer was the anicut where a river’s water was diverted using a dam type structure built across the river partially blocking the river flow and diverting the water into open channel flow canals.

    The amazing and extensive irrigation system in Sri Lanka’s dry zone encompassing today’s North Central, North, East and North Western Provinces encompassing over 10,000 (please check this figure for accuracy) large, medium and small scale reservoirs, open channel flow canals etc. was built by the Sinhala Kings.

    Therefore there is no doubt whatsoever that there was a Sinhala Buddhist civilization encompassing today’s North Central, North, East and North Western Provinces, even just by considering this extensive irrigation reservoir system. R.L. Brohier , H.C.P. Bell, D.LO. Mendis, Henry Parker and many archaeologists, irrigation engineers and surveyors have written many books and research papers on this subject. In fact even the British Governor at the time Sir Henry Ward marvelled at the ingenious Sinhala irrigation engineer and wrote on the subject and Even Sir Emerson Tennent, another British Governor marvelled at the ingenious Sinhala irrigation engineer and wrote on the subject. In fact, the Sinhala irrigation engineer was a master of hydraulics. Not only that, extensive data on rainfall patterns would have had to be collected to figure out the capacity of the irrigation reservoirs. Very accurate surveying of the lay of the land would have had to be carried out to come up with very accurate contour maps in order to figure out the placing of the reservoirs and the traces of the open channel flow canals.

  8. plumblossom Says:

    The countries out to destabilize Sri Lanka and create an illegal large separate state or Eelam (which has no basis whatsoever as far as history or archaeology of the island is concerned since decedents of recent settlers i.e. Sri Lankan Tamils cannot demand separate states) are the US, EU, UK, Norway, Sweden, Canada and India alongside the TNA, other separatists and the LTTE terrorists. It has been extremely obvious this has been the case for the past almost two and a half decades not just now. The reasons are the most strategically placed location of the island and especially the Trincomalee harbour (ideal for a military, naval base as far as the US is concerned), the minerals in the North, the vast ocean resources, the oil and gas in the Mannar and Kauvery basins in the North etc. Therefore it is quite good for all Sri Lankans to be informed about this very unfortunate but true fact and be very vary of this fact.

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    Any Separate State in Sri Lanka will lead to the dismemberment of INDIA, sooner or later.

    INDIA has unresolved problems of the Caste System (Caste stated in birth certificates as well as used as the base for the INDIAN Census).
    Poverty too.
    Watch your step, INDIA !

    All the Cats are now out of their bags !

    For Lanka it is “Sink together, or Swim together”.

  10. RohanJay Says:

    Sri Lanka in 2015 and 2016 has been a top destination for top diplomats from the UN and from DC. In the last one and a half years. I counted John Kerry visiting Sri Lanka, Samantha Power and UN Chief Ban Ki Moon who has visited twice.

    Ananda & Lorenzo,

    You both have good points here !

    ———-

    Tamils are really fighting their 3,000 yr old Caste War from Tamil Nadu, in Sri Lanka. Outside powers use this opportunity to ‘divide & rule’ and even ‘destabilise & destroy’ Lanka’s roots.

    For CHANGE to happen, present day Tamil Leaders MUST OFFICIALLY REVOKE the Vadukoddai Resolution (1976) – Eelam through Violence. This must be done in the Parliament, under Oath and Recorded. The present day Tamil Leades have so far done sweet nothing toward Reconciliation demanded by all outside powers. High time these Tamil leaders got off their seats and did something meaningful to the country that feeds and nurtures them. High time these Tamil leaders did their duty by the Nation.

    If Tamil Leaders do not comply, they ought to be prosecuted in Courts for destabilising & destroying Sri Lanka through the ongoing Vadukoddai Resolution from 1976 onwards.

    Erring parties who have utterly FAILED SRI LANKA :

    * TAMIL LEADERS OF LANKA can ONLY think of the SEPARATISM song to sing. Not a single innovative idea has come from them.
    For their Separatist song, they are praised by the west/INDIA and the near 30 yrs of Atrocities by the LTTE are swept under the desk.

    * The UN has failed Sri Lanka.
    – The UN had no Laws in place to stop INDIA imposing under DURESS the 13-A on the JRJ govt.
    – The UN had no Laws in place to stop INDIA from training the LTTE and setting them loose in Sri Lanka to kill and terrorise the citizens of Lanka for nearly 30 yrs.

    The UN has yet to add Laws to PREVENT Tragedies happening all over the world, over and over again.

    Sri Lanka must quote UN Systems Failure in Defence of our Armed Forces.
