MCC – A Crime like no other!

What is the use of all the sacrifices people have been asked to go through and are making if the likes of MCC come to pass. People will be made vassals in their own country. The nation is being encouraged to save, to grow, to be more self-reliant, to be more disciplined. All these for whose gain? Can the authorities be more honest with the people and let them know the specific advantages and benefits they will receive in the event MCC and the sister agreements come into effect? They have no moral right to talk with foreign powers behind the back of the people like the previous regime. They have no right to engage dubious individuals with shady pasts to decide on the future of our Motherland.

It is obvious the Americans want to use Sri Lanka as a staging post for their war like activities in the region according to the Indo-Pacific Strategy, they intend setting up to counter the Chinese influence in the region. If all these come to pass Sri Lanka will be left a desolate land desecrated and violated by the US soldiery as has happened in so many other countries before. China too has a role to play by not unnecessarily involving Sri Lanka in a power struggle not of their making.

The world has witnessed similar before when the US went to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos to save the East from Communism. We saw what happened when Yugoslavia was destroyed and the resulting carnage – all in the name of restoring democracy. We saw what happened when the US led forces invaded the Middle East to save the world from Saddam Hussein that finally led to 9/11 and another invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq leading to ISIS destabilizing a swathe of countries and their citizenry. We saw the effect of ‘colour revolutions’ that ultimately ended up creating divided nations and more human misery. The established order however distasteful has now being replaced by a state of disorder leading to more human misery than ever before. Now we see all those people affected by the US led Western Christian Powers, invading the European heartland as refugees. In other words, they have messed up the world and now they are reaping an immigrant invasion.

We have to ask the people of Okinawa, Subic Bay, the Panamanians, Honduras, Chargossians, Haiti, Hawaii   Porto Ricans and similar others how much they love the Americans. Have they left any of those countries in any better shape since the American involvement in those countries? Finally, we have to ask if all those people who shout to heavens Black Lives Matter” how they feel about their own country?

The US intend setting up a land corridor from Colombo to Trincomalee through which they can move all their war logistics and Sri Lanka will never be the same again. The reason for land titles and improvements to the road infrastructure are all to benefit the invader – for him to buy land and then use the road facilities to move about freely all over Sri Lanka – no passports. no visas, not subject to Sri Lanka law. Even the British during World War II referred to the Americans as – “overpaid, overfed, over dressed, oversexed and over here”!

This very same thing happened to Hawaii and today the Hawaiians are second class citizens in their own country. To sell country down the drain for a mess of pottage amounting to less than $500 Million Dollars is a crime like no other in the history of Sri Lanka! 

Furthermore, this is an issue which should be tackled in consultation with all other countries in the region. Definitely an American presence of this scale does not bode well for anybody – not in Sri Lanka – not in South Asia!

The reason the previous Yahapalanaya led by Ranil W sold Hambantota to the Chinese is a fait accompli to make MCC happen! This to give an excuse to the Americans, Indians and others of their ilk to ask for a pound of flesh from Sri Lanka to even out the balance of forces. 

The Chinese loan for the construction of the Hambantota Port was ~$1.5 Billion. Now for a consideration of less than that amount we have handed over not only the Port per se but also an indescribably a valuable piece of real estate on which the port sits on a supposed to be lease that can go up to 198 years! There is nobody living today to witness what will happen to this land with a title that goes in history beyond 2600 years. What sort of a deal is this? Those involved must be brought to book and sent to prison!

RANIL W WAS TASKED TO MAKE SRI LANKA A FAILED STATE. DURING THE LAST 5 YEARS THAT WAS HIS MAIN JOB SET UP BY HIS TASKMASTERS IN WASHINGTON AND TO WHICH HE AND HIS COHORTS SO WILLINGLY SUBSCRIBED IS NOW MORE THAN OBVIOUS. HE MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO BRING DOWN THE ECONOMY WITHIN WEEKS OF GRABBING POWER – RESULT BOND SCAMS! HE MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO DESTROY SRI LANKA’S SECURITY STRUCTURES – RESULT EASTER SUNDAY ATTACKS AND RISE OF JIHADISM! ATTACK ON AGRICULTURE – RESULT IMPORT DEPENDENT NATION. ALL THIS CAME TO PASS. FORTUNATELY FOR SRI LANKA, THE ORDINARY SRI LANKANS – MAJORITY SINHALA BUDDHISTS PREVAILED AND BROUGHT ABOUT A CHANGE OF GOVERNMENT AND A RESOUNDING WIN FOR POHOTTUWA AT THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND LATER AT THE PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS NOT WITHSTANDING THE PANDEMIC! ARE ALL THESE SACRIFICES TO NO AVAIL! 

All those who voted for Pohottuwa never envisaged that they will have to face an issue so dire and traitorous such as the MCC sell out so early in this administration. This would out rank even Ranil W’s Central Bank Bond Scam several fold if it ever come to pass! May wise counsel prevail!

Only way is to strengthen Sri Lanka’s armed forces and begin national conscription. Only a strong Sri Lanka that can withstand the outside forces as well as provide security guarantees to India on her southern flank and to other nations in the region. It is strange how India is going to benefit from going into a partnership with the US, Japan and Australia to counter China. India should very well understand that the ultimate end game of the US led Western Christian Powers is to balkanize India – a country that is aspiring to be eventually as powerful as China in the coming decades. 

It is in the best interests of India and China to keep Sri Lanka neutral. Sri Lanka, just like Singapore should be afforded the wherewithal to become powerful militarily and keep the sea lanes south of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean safe for all comers including the US, Japan, Australia and other nations of the world.

CHINA IS NOT HELPING ANYBODY INCLUDING THEMSELVES IN HER STEAMROLLER DRIVE TO ‘COLONIZE’ OTHER NATIONS USING HER ECONOMIC STRENGTH. WHAT HAPPENED TO OTHER EMPIRES WILL BEFALL CHINA TOO IN THE END. BEING A NATIONS WITH MUCH WISDOM AND A KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE FROM HISTORY, CHINA SHOULD REFRAIN FROM BECOMING ANOTHER BULLY AND A FOLLY!

All compounded things are impermanent! Anichchawata Sankhara! – Lord Buddha

    Ranil recently boasted that 19A was a trap that “we” (i.e., Ranil, the UNP under him -some of them are in the breakaway SJB), the Americans, Indians, and the Tamil economic refugees in the West, aka diaspora Tamils) laid for the nationalists; he warned that it was so designed as to destroy those who try to change it. This may be the empty talk of an old codger who has suffered only pratfalls in his long political career of nearly 45 years; he is trying to put on a brave face while massaging his smarting backside. But the motive that is driving him now is more than clear. He wants to destroy what he can’t win.

    Many patriotic people, journalists included kept writing extensively about the danger pose by the MCC and its offer of a paltry sum of money by the US to get a foothold first and then a stranglehold on Sri Lanka. American government works for America-not for the benefit of any other country. This is particularly true now, when the administration is trying very hard to increase its influence abroad to win over the American public at home.
    The people who voted at the last election were well aware of the danger MCC posed to the country, its culture and religion and everything else that is Sri Lankan. This is why the people voted en masse and gave the president and his administration the two thirds majority they needed-to do what’s best for the country. Now, if the present government is still toying with the idea of making MCC a reality, the vast majority of the people have been completely betrayed. The government must immediately sweep the idea of the table. MCC is not for Sri Lanka’s benefit. It is for the benefit of the USA and its foreign policy, which in the past has brought several countries to their knees. The president must immediately assure the people that MCC is off the table. Now-not next week!

    Today a former British British MP was sent to prison for a small offence of touching some women and prior to his case he gracefully resigned. He was a government MP with a great future.See how honourable the politicians in UK are because that is part of the culture in the country where the person from the street level to the top leader in the country have moral standards but can we compare our people and our leaders?
    Due to the lack of this honourable culture and discipline our backward country and their leaders will be very venerable to black mail,pressure and influence by out side meddlers and this will never happen in UK.People are very unhappy about the Sakoola incident where a young lad was run over by that foreigner.UK is very obliged to US due to their help and commitment to the great wars in the past.
    We have no such problems for us to be obliged to country like US,India and China therefor we could stand our ground and say no to them.
    I think there are dark forces who are calling the shots in US,sadly all regimes in that country have to oblige. Good examples are their terrible wars in Vietnam,Laoas and now in middle east. One could see the gulf states are obliged to forsake their friends in Palestine, though the original Jews are very much against this occupation and they want to live peacefully with all, which they have done for centuries.
    At the end of all these sad conflicts, these armchair plotters are making all the money away from the conflict areas.
    regime change in US will never change their basic policies.
    All the leaders in t countreswere utterly stupid and greedy to fleece their countries’ hard earned tax money to invest in the very few nations that wants to dominate our skies and seas.
    we the leaders of the third world have given them the rope to hang themselveget what they want.
    In SL our leaders are week and backward and even dishonest and to fool the people they all venerate before the monks,etc,instead of getting on with running the country the way it is done in UK,in a honourable way where no outsider could ever influence us, blackmail us or control us.No wonder people like Ehalapola got the Righteous British to run our countries.
    If we are another UK,even a Singapore then no one dare ask us to bend over. Just like in the gulf states we have fallen into their trap by stealing the national assets and depositing there. Not only they will be confiscated by have laws to make the depositors and investors demonized. I sat to all leaders in the third world not to be greedy that could eventually be exploited, after all they despise the outside politicians making money by may means while the politicians here settle for a meagre pension. If I stand out side my house so many go past my hose walking and I chat them up occasionally. This is the reason I keep my books in order and live beyond my means.This message to all leaders in the third world.
    see what is happening in Sudan and Lebanon where they want the colonialsback.If not for the human rights and respect for law of practiced by law abiding developed world the locals would have hanged their leaders that stole their hard earned money. So we must not discard the Human rights conventions that is there to protect good, bad and the ugly, though US is the exception to this rule but their people are waking up to this too. There is a good US citizen just next to me who agrees with me. So let every one find the righteous parthto our lives without allowing convicted criminals getting in to the parliament. Sorry I can’t correct the grammatical errors.

    I am so sorry that I could not correct the grammar as the computer is playing up, so embarrassed. I say to all the leaders in every third world to follow the righteous honest path because they will exploit the third world leaders to their advantage ,because so many tells me that a third world leader or a politician has many times the newly acquired wealth while they here eat the humble pie in their retirement.

    Why do we need to surrender to the Americans to get their $400 million when we can easily make this amount by cutting down waste? Start with the parliament and getting rid of the white elephants like the provincial councils. Do our politicians need those super luxury humongous vehicles? Just create a pool from the existing government vehicles for their use. Why these crooks are allowed to sell their vehicle permits and make money? Do they need all those body guards if they are decent law abiding citizens?
