Indian Opportunistic Exploitation of Lanka and How India and USA Exploit Iran

Making use of US pressure on Lanka, India exploits the island nation politically and economically. In the backdrop of US calls for war crimes investigations, India is pushing Indian made 13th amendment on Sri Lanka and expects even more. It further finds it the opportune time to force CEPA (Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement) disaster on Lanka. If implemented, this would wipe out the entire national economy and make the island an economic slave of India. Thirdly, India has demanded Sri Lanka hand over oil exploration rights in the north of the islandƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s sea to India and not to China or Russia. This is nothing less than extortion by India making a quick buck of othersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ misfortune.

IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s despicable conduct is further displayed by how it is cashing in from US imposed sanctions on Iran. Making use of the disadvantageous situation Iran is in India has come to an agreement to pay 45% of Iranian oil in useless Indian rupees. Initially India discussed the feasibility to pay in gold but later realizing the dire state Iran is in further bargained to pay in useless India printed paper.

ThatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not all; making use of sanctions, India is pushing its cheap export goods to Iran in a bid to shift the trade deficit in IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s favour. At present Indian imports from Iran amounts to $14 billion whereas Indian exports are only $2.7 billion.

On the outward India and USA display to the outside world that they are in disagreement over Iranian oil but in reality it is a concerted endeavour between India and USA to fool the world and rob Iranian oil.

Indian exploitative approach can be equalled to the Australian Wheat Board (AWB) affair where the Australian government affiliated AWB sold wheat at higher prices to Iraq when American sanctions starved Iraq for a decade. Australian farmers and middlemen earned a fortune by cashing in on the deaths of Iraqi children. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚

War crimes allegations have created a good opportunity to India to exploit Lanka at will. As long as Lanka gives into Indian demands, there will be more war crimes allegations. Indian demands should not be entertained.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ If a friend in need is a friend indeed, India is certainly no friend. It is rather a blackmail agent playing the US game of extortion. It is time to nullify Indian interests in the region with Chinese presence in the island.

    Why Sri Lanka gives Trincomalee Tank farm and Oil exploration by default to India without putting those in an Open auction ?

    Most of the time, sanctions by the western block make way for the black market economy in the west too.

    One wikileak article says, various organizations of the west such as world bank gave $ 3 billion foreign aids to the newly formed country of East Timor. Yet, nothing of that money was spent inside the country.

    Thank you for a great eye opener.

    I do not think religion got anything to do with it.

    We are the subjects of Indian Empire.

    We have to realize it and fight for freedom. India and Indian colonial parasites are the non violent aggressors and oppressors.

    We are not alone. Look at the plight of locals in Fiji, Mauritius, Parts of South Africa, Uganda, Kenya etc.

    Welcome back Ben Silva, so did you have the DNA test done? Do you now have evidence to believe your father is really your father (or otherwise)?

    You will still need evidence to believe that your father really loved you!!

    Again, good copy pasting from a fake patriot.

    **To respond to Christie, if we are facing danger, then I think it is important to think rationally, free from bias, to understand what actually is going on. **
    All patriots of Sri Lanka no that, regardless if they are Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, Bahai or Jewish. It also doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Ben Silva is a fake patriot on anti-cultural campaign.

    Ben Silva has recognised that it is Buddhism that should be estiguished after LTTE. He hoped that LTTE can survive, even though he wrote against it. After the war, he got nothing to writte and then chosen to go after Buddhism.
    He is a dole bludger in UK. He has nothing to do and get very bored if there is nothing to wirte.

    He is a catholic and such a big fool that he cannot understand 99% of Buddhist do not bother about Nibbana in this life.

    Re Economic Theory, Adam Smith the father of Modern Economic Theory & Capitalism in his book “Wealth of Nations” stated that even in a state run on a purely Capitalistic economy, there has to be SAFETY NET for society as people fall out of employment, get sick and aged.

    What we know as Buddhist Economics is akin to Adam Smith’s advice. It is the type of Socialist policies that we have in place in Lanka as a social safety net. Lanka ought to rank well if measured on these terms. Quality of Life Index is another way measure the well being of a society, rather than through the GDP. The GDP can be misleading. There are wealthy countries with high GDPs with a few at the top owning most of the wealth of the country and masses of people left in poverty.

    However, all countries practicing Socialist policies along with some Capitalism ought to have free birth control methods made available through their governments.

    If India has demanded that oil exploration in Mannar basin be given to them, it appears that Cairn Oil (India) wants the whole oil deal there. Cairn Oil Head Office is in Edinburgh, UK. Therefore, UK will get the major share of the oil. Russia has got one block to explore and Cairn already has another with oil. Cairn Oil has already taken 70% of the vast oil field discovered in Rajasthan, India.
