The naked emperors lay down
the law of Sri Lanka
Ajit Randeniya, Kandy
The news over the last several weeks from Sri Lanka suggests that
the government has had enough of the dictates and preachings from
the international money lenders who disguise themselves as the 'moral
guardians' of the humen values. The government has said to the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) who use sconditional loans to force developing
countries to sell their assets and infrastructure to global corporations
and other businessmen, and they have packed up and left Sri Lanka.
The World Bank is also gone (or are threatening). Surely they must
The response has already come in the form of 'stern warnings' from
the mouthpiece of the US (assumed) empire, a bureaucrat by the name
of Tom Casey. Following a diplomatic message that conveyed the US
displeasure about the Sri Lankan Government's growing bilateral relationship
with Iran, Casey has also sent out a strong 'public warning' to Sri
Lanka over the emerging economic ties and diplomatic relations with
the Islamic Republic of Iran.The US has also expressed its 'very serious
concerns' over Sri Lanka's growing ties with China and Russia.
President Rajapakse or his senior bureaucrats need to ask Casey (and
the US agent in Colombo) as to what right they think they have to
reprimand Sri Lanka over its relationships with other countries.
Iran is a country in the region with a sophisticated civilisation
and history rich in great contributions of art, science and music
to the world. After all, Iran has not waged any illegal wars against
any country in the world, (like the naked emperor did), illegally
killing close to a million innocent people in Iraq. The 'naked' and
dishonest emperor has no right to ask Sri Lanka to not to associate
with that country.
The Sri Lankan government must ask Where are the human rights of the
innocent civilians bombed by the US forces fighting the Sadr army
just last week? Why is the 'international community' not outraged
over these deaths and other abuses and why are the 'free' journalists
of the wire services Reuters, AFP and other dubious organisations
such as CNN report these atrocities?
But true to the 'yankee' method (which according to native American
dialects means 'thief'), the true intention of this thug of the global
village is to get Sri Lanka, knowing that we are under pressure due
to the LTTE terrorism, to get their dirty work for them.
Casey has said that "We would hope that any government that was
engaging with the Iranians, including with President Ahmadinejad,
would call on him to meet the requirements that the Security Council
and the international community has placed on him in terms of suspending
their uranium enrichment activities and complying with the other requirements
regarding their nuclear programme" . The Iraqi fraud showed how
much the US respected the UN Security Council!
As it always happens, the US international conspiracy has the support
of the EU. They have sent a 'covert' fact-finding mission (including
Germany, France and Denmark - the 'real' newly formed international
community, especially under Sarkozi!) to Colombo. According to reports
the team's visit was carried out clandestinely with the actual reason
for their visit not being given to the Sri Lankan authorities.
Following meetings with their paid agents Kumar Rupesinghe and Jehan
Perera and a few others, selected media have been informed that the
government's lukewarm response towards addressing the worsening human
rights record is set to affect the country 'big time', resulting in
a severe economic impact via the Generalised System of Preferences
Imagine the sudden attack of Human Rights 'concerns' of the Europeans!.
Are these the same people who sucked the blood out of Asian, African
and Latin American countries for over 500 years, raping and pillaging
and stealing their wealth!!!!
There is only one answer to these thieves.
Tell them that we will become friends with any one in the world we want
and it is 'none of their business'. We are not a colony of the thieves.
