If you want Peace, prepare for war.Never relax your Martial muscle.
India, UK and USA are our enemies. They will make their usual face-saving sound bytes on need for world peace etc, while at the same time conducting wars in several theaters of war. They are hypocrites! On the pretext of war on terrorism they are actually aiding and abetting terrorism by financing and supplying weapons on a massive scale. See what is happening in Syria today.
The hypocritical West murdered Gadaffi of Libya and committed war crimes through their stooges, the terrorists in Libya. The West is now reaping the benefits by grabbing Libyan oil for their benefit. Libya however is in chaos with the different factions of terrorists killing each other. The ordinary citizens of Libya are suffering.
The evil imperialist West is carrying out the same successful agenda in Syria against its President, who is no friend of the West, which wants to grab its oil. Next stop will be Iran. The oil of the Middle East is then safely in the pockets of the evil imperial West to run their industry for the next century at least.
If oil is found in SL in large amounts the same will happen in SL. Hence oil is a curse for us and not a boon. Only the oil barons will get rich and zilch for the ordinary citizen of SL.
Thank you AUJ for your invitation for me to comment elsewhere. I’ll do my best whenever possible.
