(Blake promotes separatist politics which is contrary to the President  Barrack Obama’s political vision)

This man  Robert O Blake, who had always been very sympathetic to the Sri Lanka terrorists, during his posting in Sri Lanka as USA Ambassador , acted  like  a self appointed patron Saint of Sri Lanka, and continues to do  so even  now in his  new capacity  of the Assistant Secretary of  State of USA for South and Central Asian Affairs.

He as the USA Ambassador to Sri Lanka  did not stop parroting  “there is no military solution to terrorism in Sri Lanka , and therefore  both parties should come to a negotiated settlement”.  Since then he has changed the tune.  Rober O’Blake  is the most dangerous man for  Sri Lanka that wiped out terrorism. 

He abused his position as the  assistant Secretary of States, to come to Sri Lanka, to say that , ” Sri Lanka needs to take more steps to encourage greater reconciliation and greater democracy and needs improvements in media freedom “.  

These Western  Countries exigent on diplomatic etiquette expect those etiquettes to be followed by the developing countries, they themselves paying little respect to etiquettes, shamelessly interfere into internal  affaires of Sovereign States

The added danger of Blake is his close connection to India, whose bona fides of intentions vis-ƒÆ’†’ -vis Sri Lanka is much to be desired.  The fact that O’Blake is working in concert with India was divulged in an interview  Blake gave to India’s Redcliff website on the 14 June,2010.

In this interview Blake had said , ”  the US and India are in agreement with their foreign policy toward Sri Lanka, especially on the resettlement of the remaining 40,000 plus internally displaced persons (IDPs).  He has further added, referring to India, “”We have worked very closely throughout the last several years on the situation in Sri Lanka, and again we have a real convergence of view on how that situation has evolved”.  Convergence of views indeed !

Blake , the West,  and India as well , expected the military solution to end terrorism  taken with determination by the President Mahinda Rajapakse to fail,  and they hoped the  terrorists would  win, and  break away North and East  to establish a separate Eelam State.  For India it would have been the end of  the problem it has with the TamilNadu politicians, and for the West a means to checkmate the growing influence of China and Russia in the region.

The West led by UK, France, USA, Germany, Norway, Supported by Japan and India apparently worked together with that eventuality  in mind, but  the success of  the President Mahinda Rajapakse’s military solution, with the  complete devastation  of terrorism at Nandikadal ,  not only surprised the West, but also angered them as their objective failed, and their   manoeuvres to save the leadership of the terrorists  for a future revitalization of terrorism in Sri Lanka too resulted in failure.

From then onwards,  instead of  applauding the Government  and the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka for the fantastic achievement of  the  elimination of terrorism, as an example to be followed by countries of  the rest of the World embroiled with the ruthlessness of terrorism, the West made it  an occasion to teach a lesson to the Government of Sri Lanka for not following their advice to use the political solution to end terrorism, rather than the military solution. 

Hence the most undemocratic, despicable governments of the West are bent on taking revenge from Sri Lanka (for its disobedience) by seeking to accuse the Government of Sri Lanka for war crimes, and if possible with the help of the pro terrorist expatriate Tamils to  aid the development of the  North and East  and  create if possible a revolt of the Tamil people in the areas demanding a  separate Tamil Eelam State.

The West  determined to go ahead with  their plans to take revenge from Sri Lanka, are seemingly planning with all their guile to plunge Sri Lanka in to a new communal confrontation , before the President Mahinda Rajapaksa  succeeds in his attempt to bring the Communities together by engaging in a massive development programme to bring the  North and East  to the same standard of development of the  South.

If the President Mahinda Rajapakse succeeds, the Tamil population who suffered under terrorism, despite their sentimental attachment to a sense of being Tamils, will eventually understanding  the bona fides of  the intention of the President Mahinda Rajpakse  to Unite Sri Lankans as a One Nation without  the  distinction of a Majority,  and  Minorities, will cooperate with him giving up all intentions of separation. It is that the West do not want to happen before they put their plan into action.

The Plan apparently in motion  taking  India along with the West, is to work on the national sentiments of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka, by giving them the hope of  a separately developed North and East which could eventually break away to form a separate nationhood as  the West successfully manipulated  in the formation of the landlocked Republic of Slovakia.

Therefore, it is in the interest of Sri Lanka to closely monitor  the Western intervention in the North and East with a pseudo  “humanitarian” aid programme to develop the North and east and help in  the settlement of IDPs.  As things are they seem to be playing their game of  hypocrisy well with all the charm that they could muster.

It is in this context  that one wonders why India sends its Naval Ship Nirupak engaged in hydrographical survey of the Kankasenturai harbour, to  meet its counter part  Pearl Harbour of the  USA Navy  anchored in the  Trincomalee Harbour since 13 of July, 2010. It was apparently for a special programme arranged by the Sri Lanka Navy.

The  Indian Naval Ship ‘Nirupak’ had been engaged in hydrographical survey of KKS harbour since June 30, 2010.  On the 23 of July,2010,  the Korean Naval Ship Wang Geong  was on  a Goodwill visit to Colombo.  South Korea is an American Satellite State.  

Is this gathering for some sort of exercise to prepare themselves to intervene in case of a break away of North East,  to prevent any attempt by the  Sri Lanka Armed Forces from intervening to stop such an attempt to  breakaway ?

Ominously, O’Blake has  said  in his interview to India’s Redcliff website on the 14 June,2010, that “The US would coordinate closely with India to resettle the remaining IDPs and to ensure devolution of power in the north and greater respect for the rights of all Sri Lankans.”  Is this a warning by the  pompous Robert O’Blake for the Government of Sri Lanka to be on its  guard ?

It is a shame that the President Barack Obama, who is supposed to be progressive, who does not advocate  separatist politics, who is different from the previous  Presidents, who has a  people friendly American Administration policy,  had appointed a man like O’Blake  as the Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs.   

No doubt the recommendation for his appointment had come from Hillary Clinton who is also known for her indifference towards the developing countries. She seemed to have  accepted that terrorism in developing countries  is not to be taken seriously.  She hob knobs with the white Western powers ,  treating the rest with  mere nodding acquaintance.

Therefore it is likely that she had appointed  persons like O’Blake to bring disrepute to the President Barack Obama, and make him unpopular, so that it would pave the way for whatever are  her future plans.

Referring to the  Commission of inquiry appointed by the  Government of Sri Lanka Blake had said “”¦.the Commission must ” produce concrete, serious results” to be credible and to ward off the criticism by groups like International Crisis Group and Human Rights Watch “.   He speaks like  a Monarch over seeing the affairs of Sri Lanka.

He seems to be ignorant of  the President Barrack Obama’s political vision.  President Barrack Obama belongs to the Black ethnic group in America.  But he never antagonised the Majority White  Americans, nor did he set up a separate Political Party for the minority Black Americans.  

That was  because he did not believe in  separatist politics.  He spoke in terms of all Americans belonging to all ethnic groups.  Therefore,  the President Barack Obama cannot turn to Sri Lanka and say” negotiate for devolution of political power  to the Tamils”. 

He cannot say that because  the President Mahinda Rajapakse is like him.  President Mahinda Rajapakse does not want  separation of communities.   He  does not want the people of Sri Lanka recognised as the majority and the minorities, but as Sri Lankans.  Mahinda Rajapakse wants  all communities to be Sri Lankans, as much as Barrack Obama did not speak in terms of Blacks and whites, but as Americans- all ethnic groups as one nation of Americans.

Robert Blake should wake up, he is not under  the Bush Administration, he must follow the progressive policies of the President Barrack Obama. 

Robert Blake if he is so intensively supportive of the separate Tamil ethnicity in Sri Lanka to the extent of  backing Tamil terrorism to set up a separate Tamil Eelam State, he should then  support the cause of the ethnic American Indians,  who are the legitimate natives of America . 

Blake  instead of  showing  an insatiable interest regarding the ethnic  Tamils in Sri Lanka should instead, work for the American Indians, who should be given their rightful place in America, returning them to their original territories of habitation. Promote their  emancipation as a separate ethnic group providing them with an   appropriate education to take them out of their present non-existence and re-establish them as an important ethnic Community.

Part of this Western Plan for Sri Lanka sponsored  by Robert Blake following the dictates of the strong  Tamil expatriate front organisation of the former terrorists, seems to  allow the Tamils in the North and East to organise  as a separate Community to stand on its own. With that motive  they are preparing to win over on to their side the IDPs that are being settled in their original homes, and the “grass root” Tamil population.  

India, not NGOs , appears to have been given the responsibility to work directly with the people, as it would not raise suspicion.  In this respect  the recent statement made by Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram seems relevant.

The Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram had said, India is considering directly disbursing the financial aid it has proposed to give to the war-displaced people in Wanni for their housing project.   The Home Minister made this statement  on the 15 June,2010, speaking to the press in Chennai.

The report is as follows, “India has already announced an aid package of Indian Rs 1,000 crores (About US $215 million ) to build about 50,000 homes for the people who have lost their homes in the final stages of the war in Northern province.

Talking to the media in Chennai on Sunday, the Home Minister said both Indian and Sri Lankan governments were now considering ” ways and means” of directly disbursing the money to the heads of families through banks, instead of routing the money through the Government of Sri Lanka.

He said the Sri Lankan government had agreed to this idea. This will be done with the “cooperation” of Sri Lanka government, he said.

An amount of Indian Rs 200,000 each would be given to about 50,000 heads of families under the Indian project, he said.

Mr.Chidambaram said the Sri Lankan government had promised that these families would be resettled in the next three to six months.

Earlier, the Home Minister briefed the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister on the meetings the Indian leaders had with the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakshe in Delhi a few days ago.”

There was no response from the government  of Sri Lanka on the statement of  the Indian Home Minister.

We cannot also treat lightly the 20th visit to Sri Lanka of  Yasushi Akashi the representative of the government of Japan- the peace envoy, on the 14 June,2010.

The SL Time, Colombo Page News Desk  reported that  Yasushi was urging the Government of Sri Lanka the early resettlement of the IDPs and to initiate a political process for national reconciliation targeting sustainable peace. The  report further states that, Akashi is to meet IDPs in Vavuniya and to visit resettlement villages in Vanni. He is also to attend a few ceremonies associated with projects for IDPs in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka assisted by Japan.

We should keep in mind that Yasushi was also one of those   regular visitors to Kilinochchi during the days of terrorism to meet  Tamil Chelvam.  There was then a talk that he gave Tamil Chelvam a large sum of “cash”.  He too was definitely  sympathetic towards the terrorists.

All these developments are rather troublesome.  What are they all up to  coming forward to develop North and East of Sri Lanka without any concern to the South.  They complain that there is a greater presence of China in the South.  And Blake has complained to the President Mahinda Rajapakse  that America is not pleased about his diplomatic relations with Iran.

O’Blake was shamelessly, and most undemocratically interfering into the internal affairs of Sri Lanka with his uncalled for statements to the press, in which he had demanded the government to implement the 17 Amendment to the Constitution.

    The catch prase is “sustainable peace”. To achieve sustainable peace, an ancient culturally developed nation, with a proud history of over 2500yrs, will not tolerate any type of division. This is why SriLanka is still a unitary state, though there were many invasions by foreign nations including South Indians, Portuguese, Dutch and British. If division is forced upon SriLanka then, history has demonstrated the goal of sustainable peace will be illusive. To start with they will have to send in the RP2 invaders + the Indians to control the division. Where will it end?
    India certainly is playing a double game and the insurance SriLanka has is to strengthen relations with the other SARC countries and China.
    It is also worrying these goodwill visits to strategic ports like Trincomallee and Colombo by various nations aligned with the West are increasing. It is further worrying that the West do not or do not want to worry about the dangers of flirting with terrorists for short term gain and sacrificing the welfare of their own citizens. The world knows the sad distruction of office buildings in New York killing thousands of unsuspecting civilians by the AlQuaida, which was created and nurtured by the USA. Are they in the process of creating another Frankenstein monster that would cause misery firstly to their own citizens?

  2. Kit Athul Says:

    Let me add to the author’s vision of Robert O’ Blake’s activates while he was the US ambassador in Sri Lanka: Sinhala MUST remember that when he was the US ambassador, Sri Lanka government, did not own, any land, or control the Northern and Eastern Provinces, or had the law of the land enforced there. At that time Tamil Nadu Tamils owned the land and every control associated with day to day activates were enforced there by them. They had a legal system and a commercial system that could be easily converted to create the GREATER TAMIL NADU. Jawaharlal Nehru wanted this greater Tamil Nadu in 1939. Jawaharlal came to then, Ceylon and wrote a constitution to amalgamate the Up Country Tea Estates, Northern and Eastern Provinces. This would create Grater Tamil Nadu, which will eventually be another STATE in Indian government. This theory was always in Robert Black’s mind at least in my opinion. In fact during a visit by him to Tamil Nadu, in December 2008, he told privately to his close circle of Tamil Nadu friends, that Sri Lankan army can never capture Killinochchi because of the mine fields that the solders have to cross. The open space where these mine fields are located, the Tamil Terrorist snipers can take out the Sri Lankan solders one by one and finish them. I got the following from the e-mails that were floating around at that time. He also said the following privately to his Tamil Nadu Tamils: “If the situation becomes bad, he will provide the US Navy helicopters to fly Prabharakeran and family to Norway.
    Now let’s see what other US ambassadors did to help INDIA create Grater Tamil Nadu: Ashley Wills (2000 to 2003). This lady created a Tamil rehabilitation camp in Banadarawela so that young Tamil Terrorists can penetrate the Tea Estates and start an uprising; which never materialized because it was not well organized or well-funded.
    Jeffery Lunstead (2003 to 2006) He got Ranil to remove all the Police and Army check points so that Tamil Terrorists can transport all heavy military equipment to the Northern and Eastern Provinces. I think Richard Holbrook is Robert Blake’s boss, he hates the word SINHALA. After 9/11 attack President Bush openly said that he will help to eradicate the Tamil terrorists in Sri Lanka, at the same time Richard Holbrook (at that time he did not have a federal job) came on ABC News Night Line and said “ LTTE are not terrorists, but they are Freedom Fighters”. Peter Galbrath is the same; he doesn’t like the word Sinhala.
    Charles Perera, the author clearly brings out what Tamil Nadu Tamils wants and hence India wants.
    1. 13th and 17th Rajiv Gandhi amendments to Sri Lanka constitution
    2. Total ownership of Trincomalee harbor
    3. Creation of Greater Tamil Nadu
    4. Total negation of Sri Lanka constitution for attachment Sri Lanka as a Indian State

    The very latest proof of my theory can be found on “OutlookIndia.com”
    http://news.outlookindia.com/item.aspx?687850 This Indian PUNK, P. Chidarmbaram, Tamil Chettiya visiting Virudhungerar in Tamil Nadu said openly in a public meeting that Prabhrakeran was not an enemy of India and if he accepted the 1987 Indo-Sri Lankan agreement, he would have become the ruler of Northern and Eastern provinces protected by the Indian Military. It must be clear to anyone who is the enemy of SINHALA! It is INDIA. “Ai Api Mokodha Mehema Modayo” ? Why can’t Sinhala understand this? The visible enemy of Sinhala is India. Who did the Sinhala army defeat? The answer is “India’s Territorial Army”
