I do not understand the strategy of the JO in moving this No Confidence Motion against Ranil Wickramasinghe. What is their ultimate goal, I wonder?

Immediately after the victory of Israel after their famous Six Day War where they trounced the braggart UAR in 1967, a journalist asked Israeli General Moshe Dayan, What is the best way to win a war?. General Dayan quipped Have the Arabs on the other side!”  Similarly, the easiest way for the JO to win the elections in 2019 and 2020 is to have Ranil leading the UNP. Surely that is not rocket science? He has a proven track record of losing multiple elections for UNP other than in August 2015; and that too a lame victory. In fact Mahinda Rajapaksa, a shrewd tactician, helped Ranil to continue as leader of the UNP several times as if by mutual understanding, during his time as President.

Ranil has even proved this point himself in the recent Local Government by polling only 32% for the UNP. What more proof of his inability to lead? If it was in another country, when it became clear that he was ultimately responsible for the  unheard of daylight robbery” at the Central Bank by his ‘Golaya’ whom he brought from Singapore, he should have resigned on his own in the true democratic tradition. But he was so thick skinned that he didn’t. So why is the JO sweating to remove him when he is their sure winning factor? After all, we know that the track record of the JO is not squeaky clean either! They are only there for the lack of an alternative.

On the other hand, if they succeed in ousting Ranil as PM at this juncture, the JO will find it that much more difficult to defeat the UNP at the hustings if they appoint a new leader. Whoever that person would be, he will offer some hope to the disgusted UNPers to return to their fold at least in temporary hope. So why do the JO want to queer the pitch?

The only area of concern if Ranil is allowed to continue is, what further damage he could do to the country during the interim period? Besides the Central Bank Robbery he has sent this country to gallows with the co-sponsoring of the UNHRC Resolution in collaboration with his fellow traitor Mangala. He had sold the Hambantota Port to China, causing so much inconvenience to India and now bent on selling the Hambantota Air Port and Trincomalee harbor to India to compensate. He will push through the deadly ETCA agreement with India to ruin this country further. The biggest damage to this country will be his tireless effort to push the dangerous New Constitution proposal, converting this country into a federal state. It is the responsibility of the President assisted by the JO, to prevent these disasters from the brink working with dedication, if the President has any hope of asking the country for a second Term.

I believe that we are a short sighted nation. I mean all Communities. We are not adept at seeing the bigger picture. I think the same problem afflicts the JO who are engaged in a short sighted self-defeating  exercise in vain

In Management, ‘do nothing’ option too is a positive strategy in certain circumstances. This is such a situation for the JO. Do nothing, and let Ranil lead the UNP to its grave, the way that Pied Piper of Hamlin did.

    No confidence motion against RUN-NIL is brought to SAVE THE COUNTRY. Not to save UNP or JO. IF RUN-NIL stays he continues to destroy the country so PRESIDENT MY3 FORCED MR to bring it.

    We should think of the COUNTRY FIRST not how to benefit political parties.

    IF RUN-NIL wins the no confidence motion he will SPEED UP court cases against RAJAPAKSHAS because he knows tha game played by the JO against the UNP.

    So it is a KILL OR GET KILLED situation for the JO and JO families and UNP.

  2. Charles Says:

    Lorenzo is very active again…. your objective is ofcourse against the JO….you want to have Sirisena and Ranil well settled with the Yahapalanaya -afterall you worked for it so it is to your interest that it survives.!!!

    Sugath, It is strange when the No Confidence was not coming there were those who criticised JO for not presenting a NCM, strangely today you are asking why the JO brought the NCM against Ranil……!!!


  3. Christie Says:

    Dear friends.

    Ours is an Executive President administration.

    Beating Ranil is another distraction unless it leads to getting rid of Sirisena.

  4. charithsls Says:

    It is my view also which I’ve written here before that the main goal should be the President Election & keeping Ranil in post is the best option for MR /GR.However his wings should be clipped not to change the constitution & pacts with India.
    What is happening inside is difficult to guess as there are reports in fact both MR & Ranil may get together to oust MS in turn.On the other hand if Ranil is replaced from the post though we guess whoever replaces him will do better,there is every chance the UNP will split into factions further going downhill. It is unlikely anyone else can unite the UNP as Ranil has done so far.

    Charles, SPOT ON!

    Backstabber Lorenzo, the Eelamist Agitator, hiding under a tattered sheepskin, is BACK in ACTION again supporting his Backstabbing (surprise!!) Presidential Candidate Palwatte Gamaralage Maithripala Yapa Sirisena ONCE AGAIN dressing him in FIG LEAVES to hide his nakedness!

    This Lorenzo is the VERY SAME SOB who danced up and down the aisles at LankaWeb SPEWING False Anti-Mahinda propaganda, including non-existent Lamborghini’s and Golden Statues yet to be found, BOASTED and CROWED right here at LankaWeb after the Jan 8, 2015 mis-election, how he led Patriots by the NOSE at various websites, off the cliff on to the rocks below.

    Yes, we PATRIOTS REMEMBER VERY WELL HIS ANTICS and will NEVER FORGIVE HIM for the role he had played in SOWING the DESTRUCTION of our beloved Motherland since then, and pushing it into the SAD PRESENT STATE.

    Our National ECONOMY is now in tatters, our Central Bank SCAMMED, our public Pension Funds DEFRAUDED by the Yamapalana leaders, our National Infrastructure built at great COST with great EXPECTATIONS toPROPEL Sri Lanka intoa developed state, sold or given on LENGTHY LEASES to foreigner powers, Communal Muslim politicians allowed to ILLEGALLY create Muslim Bantustans on Govt Lands, our ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE subjected to invasion by Indian Conglomerates, FOREIGN WORKERS given the right to settle in Lanka DISPLACING our workers who are asked to go abroad to EARN the foreign exchange with which the Yamapalanaya Ministers buy themselves LUXURY VEHICLES, an ECTA agreement is in the offing to cement and consolidate that invasion, a NEW DESHADROHI CONSTITUTION, dictated by foreigners and separatists, that FEDERALIZES the Nation giving nearly independent powers and states to DEFEATED Separatists who are GEARING up to to RESUME their TERRORISM, our pristine faith of Buddhism subjected to ATTACK at every turn without government sponsorship and protection, Buddhist priests and Armed Forces personnel imprisoned by the hundreds, Armed Forces expelled from the former separatist-controlled war zones, leaving those lands UNDEFENDED and open to REMILITARIZATION by terrorists, and the SOVEREIGNTY of the Nation subjected to the DICTATES of the UN and its Western Neo-Colonialist backers …….

    NEED I CONTINUE this LITANY of the NEGATIVE IMPACT of the Yamapalanaya that this REPROBATE Lorenzo helped to ELECT and IMPOSE upon our beloved Motherland?


    And HERE IS the SOB Lorenzo AGAIN, pontificating to ALL & SUNDRY on the VIRTUES of the Backstabbing PANA-NATHI JANA-PATHI who has BLITHELY PRESIDED over this National Carnage spouting HOMILIES while his Motherland BURNED!

    A POX on TRAITOR the Lorenzo and his entire CLAN!

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    Charles and Ananda-USA

    My concern is SL. Your concern is JO, to hell with SL.

    Don’t you see the DESTRUCTION RUN-NIL does to SL in ECONOMY, SECURITY, BUSSHISM, etc. You want it continued so your favourtie politicians can win the election!

    A POX and HEX on the TRAITOR Ananda and his entire CLAN!

    This is the problem with SL. There are people who want SL MURDERED by RUN-NIL if that helps their darling politicians come to power!! What a curse on SL!

    STOP thinking in party politics and think of the country.

    Look what RUN-NIL has already done. Can you imagine and take responsibility to his action for the next 2 years???

    1. 30/1 UN resolution against SL. This November he plans to do it again and Ananda-USA wants it.


    3. Demoting Buddhism, arresting Buddhist monks

    4. Arresting 27 war heroes already and how many more do you want arrested before kicking out RUN-NIL?

    5. SELLING H’tota to China. Now he plans to sell TRINCO to ENDIA. So USA wants it to happen? Curse!

    6. RUN-NIL is about to sign ETCA that will DESTROY SL economy. Ananda-USA wants it!

    7. RUN-NIL sold SWARNAWAHINI to TAMIL DIASPORA. What more he will sell if he stays and USA wants it.

    8. HYBRID courts against SL war heroes. This is the first thing RUN-NIL will do if he stays. And Ananda-USA wants it.

    9. ARREST GR over concocted allegations on the LASANTHA case and WELIKADE case. I can understand why BR want it happened but why Ananda-USA? This is what RUN-NIL is doing now.

    10. CHANGE the constitution to turn SL FEDERAL AND BEYOND.

    Who are the REAL supporters of RUN-NIL to destroy the country? I can see a few here!

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    “Immediately after the victory of Israel after their famous Six Day War where they trounced the braggart UAR in 1967, a journalist asked Israeli General Moshe Dayan, What is the best way to win a war?. General Dayan quipped Have the Arabs on the other side!” ”

    This is about the NATION. Not party politics.

    General Moshe Dyan NEVER thought in terms of party politics. He ALWAYS thought in terms of the NATION.

    So it is a wrong example. The LONGER RUN-NIL stays the more DAMAGE he causes to SL, BUDDHISM, SL ECONOMY and WAR HEROES.

    I LOVE to hear when these people who want to SAVE RUN-NIL HOWL in a few months when RUN-NIL grills their favourite politicians over wrong allegations. They fail to see the CAUSE-EFFECT connection! Are they Buddhists??

    Don’t think RUN-NIL will return the favour! He is far more INTELLIGENT than the JO(KERS). IF you keep him, he WILL BACK STAB. Mark my word.

  8. Ananda-USA Says:

    TRAITOR Lorenzo!

    Your CONCERN was NEVER with SL, but with HOW TO DESTABILIZE SL, OUST its WAR-WINNING NATION-REUNIFYING Govt, and help achieve the SEPARATIST GOALS of your EELAMIST Masters!

    Don’t BULLSHIT us about SL and the JO, and TRY to MISLEAD, DIVIDE & CONQUER us!

    We understand VERY WELL who you are supporting.

    Your words against the UNP are MERE CAMOUFLAGE to hide your SUPPORT for the UNP which is a TOOL that your Masters in the Tamil Diaspora SUPPORT & EXPLOIT to gain their SEPARATIST ends!


  9. Ananda-USA Says:

    TRAITOR Lorenzo!

    By listing the DESTRUCTIVE ACTS of the list OF the UNP, you are PREACHING to the CHOIR! We ALREADY KNOW those things!

    BUT, they are things that Sirisena and the UNP did after they came to power, and you are a REPROBATE who helped to get them there!


  10. Lorenzo Says:

    These are the CHARGES against RUN-NIL. Pity Ananda USA DENIES them!!

    1) Removal of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka from the Finance Minister and placing it under the Prime Minister without following due procedure and with the ulterior motive of committing the treasury bond scam.

    2) Appointing Arjuna Mahendran who is a not a Sri Lankan citizen and has a questionable track record, as Governor of the Central Bank even when there was conflict of interest.

    3) Involvement in the treasury bond scam which can be considered as the world’s largest financial crime in recent history.

    4) Appointing close political associates to the Pitipana Committee with the intention of protecting those involved in the scam.

    5) Misleading the parliament with a special statement on the 17th of March 2015 with the aim of concealing the truth and protecting the corrupt.

    6) Replacing a member of COPE when proceedings were on-going, with an attempt to acquit those involved in the bond scam.

    7) Exerting pressure on COPE members during the period in which COPE carried out investigations.

    8) Recommending to Cabinet to appoint Former Central Bank Deputy Governor P. Samarasi, whose name was revealed at the Presidential Commission for his involvement in the Bond Scam, to a post at the Finance Ministry.

    9) Attempting to extend the tenure of Arjuna Mahendran as Governor of the Central Bank, when the president wanted to appoint someone else to that post.

    10) Appointing Arjuna Mahendran as an Advisor after he was removed as governor, following the treasury bond scam.

    11) Allowing Arjuna Mahendran to leave the country and evade courts.

    12) Violation of nine separate laws that can only be enforced by the Finance Minister.

    13) Placing the Finance Ministry and the Central Bank under his purview through the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Sub-committee on Economic Management, and thereafter steering the economy to a state where there is a serious economic crisis and adding a burden on to the people.

    14) Failure to respond promptly to the incidents in Kandy and ensure the security of the citizens of the country, while holding the Ministry of Law and Order.

    RUN-NIL deserves 10 no confidence motions for these crimes. RUN-NIL’S defenders are TRAITORS and guarding gods of SL must punish them mercilessly.
