    Fidel Castro was a brave patriotic person who stood up to the US imperialists without any fear whatsoever. Fidel Castro safeguarded Cuba and that country has achieved many impressive achievements in terms of healthcare, housing, education, vaccinations. land redistribution etc. via following socialist principles. US, UK, EU and the like did everything possible to undermine Fidel. The CIA tried to assassinate Fidel at least fifty times. He survived all these attempts. Rest in Peace, Fidel and farewell to a brave revolutionary who changed this planet earth for the better.

    Fidel Castro was an icon and a brave, patriotic leader who never gave into US pressure. Our politicians should learn from this great leader, instead of trying to kiss asses of the white masters of imperialistic and colonial West.

    Sri Lanka should be free of any foreign interferences, and political & economic pressures coming from the West to set their hidden agenda in the country and the region.

    I support any patriotic politician who has the guts to face the West, and resists the pressure to dance to their (West’s) music, no matter what the consequences are..

    The treacherous Ranil/CBK/Sirisena/Mangala/UNP and foreign funded NGOs may hire ‘patriotic’ sounding writers to write articles etc. creating rifts and conflicts between Sinhala people and all others so that the federal constitution or partition of Sri Lanka can happen easily when such potential unfortunate scenarios take place. Is this Shenali D.Waduge one of them?

    I suspect that this Shenali Dushyanthi Waduge is actually Dushyathi Kanagasabey or Dushyanthi Kanagasabeysan. I remember quite some years ago this lady Dushyanthi Kangasabey was writing articles and working for a foreign funded NGO and of course an out an out indirect LTTE sympathiser I am sure. I strongly suspect that this person Dushyanthi Kanagasabey is working for those traitors Kumar David/Jehan Perera/Pakiasothy Sarvanamuththu and quite possibly at the Centre for Ethnic Studies or alternatively she/he is working at the LTTE supporting Asian Human Rights Commission.

    The mission of these traitors and the treacherous UNP is to create rifts between Sinhala people and all others to accomplish their die hard goals. These goals are to pass this federal constitution with ease by creating problems or rifts between Sinhala people and all others which will ease the process of passing this treacherous constitution with ease if there are issues created. Secondly the UNP traitors want the minority vote at the next local elections. Thirdly if you create a rift between Sinhala people and all others it will be easier to undermine our Sri Lankan Armed Forced vis a vis the fulfilling the UNHRC resolutions.

    Please realise that the likes of Dushyanthi Kanagasabey, Kumar David, Jehan Perera, Pakiasothy Sarvanamuththu are die hard federalists and they have over the years been paid thousands of US dollars by the US,UK, EU etc. to precisely achieve these goals alongside the TNA, other separatists and the like. What better way then than to plant ‘patriotic’ sounding writers to undermine the Sinhala people and create rifts between the Sinhala people and all other. This is the classic strategy of the UNP traitors.

    This Shenali Dushyanthi Waduge (or in my opinion Dushyanthi Kanagasabey possibly or definitely someone else who is not Sinhala but quite possibly a federalist or an Eelamist) never ever writes in Sinhala since she/he does not know any Sinhala. Any decent patriotic person by now would have at least given a talk or numerous talks at the numerous seminars out there about at least this proposed constitution or even the UNHRC resolution and its implications to Sinhala audiences in Sinhala. This is the patriotic duty of any patriotic person. The yuthukama seminars are one of them. At least they would have attended talks given by the numerous politicians and other patriotic persons given on numerous occasions as I have done and even asked many questions from them. So does any one know who this Shenai D. Waduge is or has anyone ever met he/her? of course not. So be very careful of such impersonators masquerading as ‘patriotic’ persons but in reality working for the likes of Kumar David, Jehan Perera, Pakiasothy Sarvanamuththu and the like.

    Think about it. After this treacherous government came to power, all patriotic persons whether politicians , professionals etc. they have given talks at seminars in Sinhala to Sinhala people, written articles in Sinhala and even if they did not give a talk, at least attended such talks and asked questions. If not, at least they have joined together and formed organisations towards preserving the unitary state of Sri Lanka. However this Shenali D. Waduge has anyone ever met this person in their lives? of course not.

    Please editor of this website, prior to publishing any articles, ask the authors to vouch for their identity. For example ask them to name a few people that you and they would know mutually i.e. so that someone can vouch for their existence and identity prior to publishing ay articles by anyone. Ask them who they are, where they are from, where they work and who they know so that you are sure they are genuine and do exist at least.

    I agree with the former president of Sri Lanka MR. Fidel Castro was a great man. Perhaps one of the most inspiring leaders of the 20th century. One of the few leaders in the world who actually put the rights of common majority people first over the forces of oligarchism,imperialism, corporatism and not being puppets of these forces. Fidel Castro and Cuba managed to fend off the aggressive imperialism of US+NATO for more than 50 years. Even more remarkable given Cuba is just 90 miles of the coast of the US. He will be remembered as one of the few leaders who actually cared for the welfare of Men,Women and Children not just in his country but world wide. Someone who would fight for common simple people folk world wide trying to fight these aggressive mostly white man corporatist,imperialist, militaristic forces coming mostly out of the west. That is US+NATO countries. He defied the might of this rapacious imperialist force US+NATO for 50 plus years. For that alone Fidel Castro is a remarkable leader. Who will continue to be an inspiration to many struggling against these dark forces.
