Looking at what came after the American praise in other countries now burning for years, the possibility is something very very bad going to happen to SL.
O Boys and Girls Cheer up !
Roll the Red Carpet , Blow the Bugles ,beat the drums and Dance the Heart out raising up and waving everything your hands can grab, for here comes the messiah. He shall deliver unto you all the ‘Happiness ‘ and chuck poor sri lanka in his backside pocket.
The US supported the mahinda Rajapksa lead UPFA Government-in its conclusive battle against Tamil Tiger terrorists.
Following the victory in the battlefield in 2009, the SL Government veered totally toward China who hand almost zero participation in the war against LTTE.
Finally, the US sponsored a candidate to oppose Mahinda Rajapaksa and he is now in office. However, as the common man could see, the current President and the Prime Minister appointed contrary to the constitution, is tottering.
The President came to power not on the support of his party but with the support of the opposition. The political instability and knee-jerk reactions to localized political issues and the eternal threat of dissolution of parliament have caused chaos in the social political fabric of our land.
What’s seen is the typical recipe for a failed American project. If not for RW’s strong connections wit the Yankees, messages such as above will not be forthcoming.
This outcome is typical where the leader of the nation lacks political support through a party hierarchy. The sense of doom is pervading every tier of society. Even nightclubs in Colombo have reported significant downturn in patronage..
The Presidency should be nothing more than a ceremonial post. Of the two remaining candidates, the voter will form an opinion at the next elections for parliamentary representation.
based on above, it is absolutely clear the SL’s destiny and its path to becoming ‘The Wonder of Asia” is in the wrong hands. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s return to national leadership in the next few months will put us back on a firm and tested track.
