Can any one understand why American State Department is so engrossed in Sri Lanka’s elimination of terrorists and how the end of terrorism was brought about more than three years ago, when today in America every aspect of life seems to be degenerating ?
In an Elementary School in Connecticut 26 persons, of them 20 children between the ages of 5 to 6 years were massacred by Adam Lanza a 20 year old youth with a personality disorder who killed his mother before massacring the Children. How many more of such youth are there in America , what remedies should be taken to avoid a recurrence of such disasters, and what could be the causes that led to such abominable mental disorder amoung the American youth ?
These are the matters that should concern the President of America and his Government more than how the end of terrorism came about in Sri Lanka or how Sri Lanka deals with reconciliation of Communities. Leave that to Sri Lanka they are better equipped to handle it as the Communities are more or less of the same culture and had been living together for generations.
Are the cause of mental disorder amoung the American Children related to the way the American Government conducts its foreign policies ? It is well worth studying.
The President and his State Departmen carry out their wars without least consideration for the deaths of civilians, children , men and women. President Obama supports the drone attacks which his Administration does not want to talk about: “the use of unmanned aircraft to target and kill suspected terrorists—is classified information.”
(http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/09/obama-talks-drone-strikes)Islamabad (CNN) -- On March 17, 2011 a drone attack killed at least 40 members of a Wazir tribal Jirga, which was resolving a land ownership dispute among sub-tribes in Waziristan, a mountainous region in northwest Pakistan, according to local media reports.
The report claimed the Jirga was not the intended target and the predator was chasing a car before finally executing five people without any trial or due process near the Jirga. While this predator was hovering in the area, sophisticated cameras allegedly picked up images of a bigger gathering. Without appearing to have any intelligence or knowledge of its target, it fired four more missiles at the congregation.

Isn’t Adam Lanza’s criminal act of massacring the children in an elementary school in Connecticut symbolic of America’s aggressive foreign policy ? America does in a big way in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Pakistan what Adam Lanza with his personality disorder did in his “ small way according to the mental image of what his elders the American soldiers do in these distant places outside America.
America destroys every thing in the interest of the Security of America. America uses guns and bombs, not words and dialogue in settling problems “ it creates” with other Sovereign States. It threatens wide spread bombardments and drone attacks Nations that violate human rights -as understood by America. But America is least concerned that these countries such as Sri Lanka, Iran, Libya, Syria, Cuba are doing their best to develop their countries in their own way, develop atomic energy for peaceful purposes , or control rebels and terrorists to find peace and security for their own people.
There had been many more Adam Lanzas in America. This is not the first time that youths with mental disorders like Adam Lanza went on rampage shooting children, teachers or innocent people. There are nine such reported cases of massacres. Each time there was such tragedy America begins a debate on Gun Control, which is soon forgotten to be reignite when they are forced into another. Is the gun culture the sole course of these psychological disturbance amoung the youths such as these or are there other factors leading these youths to behave irrationally ?
Unfortunately this is about America that passes Resolutions against Sri Lanka which eliminated terrorism in all legitimacy. Sri Lanka finished off with terrorism three years ago but America and the International Community are still trying to take revenge from Sri Lanka for what it did after suffering under terrorism for thirty years. They pass resolutions against Sri Lanka in Human Rights Council, threatens to take the Sri Lanka Armed Forces before a Tribunal for war crimes, some even accuse Sri Lanka for Genocide. Incites Ban ki Moon of UN to appoint panels to investigate Sri Lanka.
Louise Fre’chette of Canada, who Chairs the panel of the Senior Advisory Group ( the Peace Keeping Panel) of the UNO, insults one of Sri Lanka’s great heroes Major General Shavendra Silva (despite the fact that she cannot hold a candle to him.) , who risked his life directing his soldiers in the midst of the shooting terrorist in the military operation for the elimination of terrorism , by undemocratically refusing to be heard at the Panel to which he was elected by the Member States.
America seems to be cursed transmitting its own “ gun culture” to a psychologically affected generation of youths because of its deplorable attitude towards countries like Sri Lanka which rid itself of the terrorism and is making a considerable effort to bring the Communities together in its own way despite being constantly hampered by the unconcerned, International Community, using Channel UK 4 to make false documentaries, and using the UN HRC led by a Tamil woman, bought over and paid for by the pro-terrorist Tamil Diaspora, and the killing of innocents children men and women in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan , Libya and Pakistan.
The repercussions coming back to originators of ill will towards others cannot be laughed off as nonsense. Because “ ill will” is a mental state a tremendous power of energy that can back fire. When the “ ill will” is coming from a Nation, it is a collective energy that can strike back with greater effect. That is why it is believable that what America suffers from today is that great “ ill will “ with which it has been carrying out a vengeance towards Sri Lanka hampering its development and stopping the people of Sri Lanka from enjoying a hard earned peace, and American wars in other countries that still see innocent beings killed to provide security to America.
President Barack Obama should at least now, at the beginning of his second term of Presidency reconsider his foreign policy as carried out by his Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Hillary Clinton The world had great expectation from Barack Obama when he was elected the 64th President of USA, most of them having learnt about his goodness through his writings.
If words written by Barack Obama in his books and spoken in captivating oratory could be translated into action there is no doubt the world would have been a peaceful place to live . But since Barack Obama became the President of USA, the man has got separated from his words and become no more than another Nixon, a Reagan , a Clinton or a Bush.
That is because in USA there is a government within a Government and no effort of the President Barack Obama would be able to draw the chariot of USA Government away from the hacked out path of aggressivity, authoritative domination over developing Nations, war, bombardment, arming rebels against Governments, maintaining torture camps, torturing of prisoners, passing resolutions against nations who are peaceful and non aggressive, listening to anti-regime lobbies such as the anti Sri Lanka pro-terrorists Tamil Diaspora, and sanctions against countries and trade embargoes.
President Barrack Obama who got elected as the President of America calling for change has turned out to be not different from previous Presidents of USA. His foreign policies have not changed , and they are still the same “issues” on which America plans its foreign policy. Then the “issues” were oil, and communism which were fundamental for its intervention with the CIA for regime change. Evidence of these most shocking “criminal “ activities of America against democratically elected political leaders of sovereign states are numerous.
The American CIA organized the ouster of the President of Guatamala Jacob Arbenz in 1950. America wanted him out because it did not agree with Arbenz’s inaugural speech in which he promised to convert Guatemala from "a backward country with a predominantly feudal economy into a modern capitalist state."
Arbenz’s crime in the eye of America was, his being a dedicated patriot, who wanted to develop his country and give his people a better standard of living. He declared that he intended to reduce dependency on foreign markets and dampen the influence of foreign corporations over Guatemalan politics. He also stated that he would modernize Guatemala's infrastructure and do so without the aid of foreign capital. And his land reforms affected the American United Fruit Company. He went into exile after the CIA initiated ouster and died in Mexico.
Then it was the turn of Salvador Allende elected President of Chile. Allende’s Socialist policies angered America and Nixon ordered CIA and its State Department to put pressure on Allende’s government. The result was the Chilean Army attack of the Moneda Palace where Allende committed suicide instead of being captured. It was because America did not want a Socialist Government in Chile.
Democratically elected Mohammad Mosaddeq Prime Minister of Iran was similarly overthrown in a coup d’etat orchestrated by CIA in 1950. It was because of the project of Nationalization of British Anglo Iranian Oil Company which had developed the oil fields in the Persian Gulf. He died when he was still under house arrest.
In 1983 United States Marines landed in Grenada ousted Hudson Austin who had formed a Revolutionary Military Government in Grenada . America occupied Grenada changed its Communists Revolutionary government and restored a Constitutional Government. ( see Wikipedia for the respective countries)
The American history of Regime Change Continues for oil fields or Communist connections.
After the terrorist attacks of the 11 September,2001, President Bush began his witch hunt for Al Qaida terrorists. He implicated Iraq for terrorist connections and when the UN Security Council was still debating Iraq’s involvement In March 2003, George Bush with false documents prepared by the Prime Minister Tony Blair of UK declared war on Iraq on the ground that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. But there were none.
Three years after devastating Iraq and killing number of Iraqi Civilians Saddam Hussein was Executed by hanging on 30 December 2006. Large numbers of American Soldiers died, and many were maimed. And the American war in Iraq continues having spread to Afghanistan. The Iraq war would bring in oil wealth, while Afghanistan’s mineral wealth awaits to be exploited by the American Companies.
The American people tired of the considerable number of their children dying in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wanted the American soldiers brought back. In the 2008 Presidential Elections Barrack Obama gave the people of America new hope of an end to the wars and promised to bring back the American Soldiers. His election as the President of USA was to fulfil that desire.
The Secretaries he appoints to carry out his policies do not think like him, but they have made him think like them. Hillary Clinton the State Secretary during the last term of his office was unable to settle any issues. Instead of ending wars and bringing back the American Soldiers as he promised, he only increased the theatres of war and sent more soldiers to fight new wars or paid NATO to drop more bombs. America did not make new friends, but kept the old, but made new enemies.
He follows plans of wars prepared by others , but has no plans of his own for peace in the world. Because he plans every thing for America, without thinking of an American led plan of peace for the world .As Previous Presidents with the CIA manoeuvred to their credit the deaths of many foreign National leaders, President Obama has the deaths of Osama Bin Laden and Colonel Gaddafi to his credit. He may be hoping to have more in his present term of office. There is already the President of Iran and the President of North Korea lined up without forgetting his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s manoeuvres against Sri Lanka.
Recently like President George Bush threatened Iraq and warned against Chemical war, President Barack Obama too threatened Al Assad against chemical war:
“ US President Barack Obama issued a warning to Syrian President Bashar Assad on Monday not to use chemical weapons against Syrian opposition forces, saying there would be consequences if he were to do so.
He did not say how the United States might respond, but White House spokesman Jay Carney said earlier that "contingency planning" was under way when asked whether the use of military force was an option. ( http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=294498)
For his new term of Office he had Susan.E.Rice another Iron woman in view to carry out his foreign policy in the State Department, but fortunately for the world she had withdrawn her candidacy. Apart from the wars of America, America also has another weapon it uses to bring the developing Nations under its thumb. It is the Trade embargos that had been going on against Cuba since 1960 and codified into Law in 1992 , to remain as long as the Cuban Government continues to refuse to move towards “democratization and greater respect for human rights.”
After the second world war the wise men of the West said no more war and thought out a way of settling disputes amoung friends through discussion and dialog. In order to realise that
Great idea of a world without war, they thought of a world forum where All Sovereign States of the world could meet as equals and settle political dissensions between Nations in dialogue. The result was the United Nation .
But to-day UN is merely an Organisation follows the dictates of America and the West. It is only China and Russia that keeps a semblance of what UN was intended to be when it was established by its forefathers, after the World Wars.
Now America and the International Community interfere into the internal affairs of Sovereign States of developing Nations , not with the previous “issues” of Communism and oil wells, but with a cry for Human rights, Accountability, and Democratization.
America has not still understood that aggressivity begets aggressivity, but friendly dialog and discussion could do more to establish good relations and stop differences with other Nations. Even with North Korea and Iran, America should stop its aggressivity, deplorable trade embargos and sanctions etc. which are themselves violation of human rights, and are not effective means for nations to change. But America cannot think otherwise than being aggressive and using threat.
America can learn from China and Russia instead of trying to develop its foreign policy to counter their influence amoung the developing countries of the World. America has never come forward to help financially the developing countries without attaching conditions to their aid programs. America had never been generous, having only America’s own benefits and political security interest derived from these poor Nations without any concern for their development and progress.
America is a Great Nation and President Barack Obama is a good man . But unfortunately President Barack Obama is unable to extricate himself from the tangled spider web set up by some of the war mongering Presidents who passed acts to please one “lobby” or another. The President Barack Obama should make null and void some of the Congressional Acts such as the , “..Act of Congress passed in 1990 then refurbished in 1994 that forbids giving money to any UN body that grants membership to Palestine, and the Cuban Democracy Act etc.” which are hackneyed, undemocratic and violate human rights.
President Barack Obama should then step out of the conventional idea of American leadership role, and shape America into a generous nation friendly and peaceful, ready to discuss and solve problems rather than resort to aggressive words of war and threat. He should move to reorganize the UNO to make it a real independent Forum where Nations meet as equals to discuss and solve their problems in an atmosphere of peace and cordiality.
