still a British Colony we were told that we should be like the English
men. They said the white men were punctual, authoritative,
honest, fair, just and reasonable. It is
only meeting them in their own natural surroundings we learnt that all that we
were told about them was rubbish. We see them today- the politicians of the
West , vindictive, dishonest, manipulative, egoist, unjust , unfair and least
concerned about others, working for their own benefit retaining their grip over
the underprivileged natives Sri Lanka
Someone said that the Judges of the EU would be just and would not be influenced by Western politicians in taking judicial decisions. But that is only an assumption based on our old belief. It is no secret that the British Parliamentarians are all out for the blood of the President Mahinda Rajapakse for political reasons, and the white judges will not hesitate to help their kind.
No political leaders of developing countries are safe from the western leadership craze and the Western Judges will not raise their voice in defence of their human rights. We saw how Sadam Husain of
was hunted and hanged in front of cameras, we saw how Colonel Gaddafi was
hunted allowed to be brutalised and
shot. This was despite that some of these western political leaders were enriched by both Sadam Hussain and
Colonel Gaddafi. The Moamer Kadhafi's regime agreed to fund French
President Nicolas Sarkozy's 2007 election campaign to the tune of 50 million
euros, a news website reported Saturday, publishing what it said was
documentary evidence. Iraq

These are eye openers for NCP CM Wigneswaran, Sampanthan and the TNA clique if they have the intelligence to understand that the whole American and Western exercise to implicate Sri Lanka for violation of human rights and war crimes is not for any interest they have towards the Tamil people in the North and East, but to “gain geo-strategic control ” of the north and east of Sri Lanka.
The Western law and judges cannot be trusted to meet out fair and independent justice, specially when it comes to deal with “ black” political leaders of the developing Nations.
Hopefully now there are nations like
Russia and even Modi’s which
will stand against the “terrorism” of the Western pseudo protectors of human
rights, and their doubtful justice. India
When it was announced that Mahinda Rajapakse had won the Presidential elections, the Western media called him “ the hawkish President” even before he was sworn in as the President of Sri Lanka.
The President Mahinda Rajapakse earned the displeasure of the West ever since he eliminated the terrorists despite all efforts of the West to save them. It is since then they began to espouse the cause of the pro-terrorist Tamil diaspora to divide
to set up a separate ,
by accusing the President, his Government and the Armed Forces for violation of
human rights and war crimes. Tamil
Their intention was evidently to teach a lesson to the President Mahinda Rajapaksa of
for refusing their demand for a cease fire to save the terrorists from being
eliminated. They are now doing all they
can to oust him from power accusing him
of violation of human rights and war crimes, hiring even the controversial UK
Channel 4 to prepare video footage damaging the image of the Sri Lanka Armed
Forces. Sri Lanka
These vindictive Western Nations have now resorted to bringing resolutions against
for violation of human rights and war
crimes without a modicum of substantial evidence. But we still seem to believe that the white
western nations are honest, just, fair and reasonable. Sri Lanka
Hence it is not a West friendly puppet who will bend back wards to please his benefactors of the West that we should elect at the next presidential elections but a strong willed dedicated patriot who will stand against the manoeuvres of the West. The only man that fits into that category is the President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Hence it is now that we should all turn to our President Mahinda Rajapakse, who is doing his best to carry out a planned development of the country providing peace and security to the people despite the obstacles the West is putting against him with the intention of a regime change in Sri Lanka to put in place an already dressed and trained puppet as the President.
The coming Presidential election is not so much an election between Presidential Candidates put up by different political parties in Sri Lanka, but against the West which has a stake in the out come of the Presidential election and would be doing everything possible to discredit and destabilise the present President and his government to see that the Presidential election in Sri Lanka would be favourable to them.
We already see the Opposition leader who is the likely common Presidential candidate of the opposition invited to attend the Conference of the UK Conservative Party. Strangely immediately after his return from the Conservative Party Conference, the EU announced restrictions on purchase of fish from
, and the European Court of Justice
lifted the restrictive measures imposed on LTTE . Sri
Ranil Wickramasinghe does not want to face another failure at an election, and is determined to leave no stones unturned in his effort to win. Hence it is likely that he is urging his Western friends (masters) to do their best to take measure to make the President Mahinda Rajapakse unpopular to turn the people against him so that the disgruntled people would vote for Ranil Wickramasinghe in preference to Mahinda Rajapakse. How else could one explain the latest EU measures against
? Sri Lanka
UNP and Ranil Wickramasinghe do not stand for progress and development of the country. Ranil Wickramasinghe if he were to become the President will keep
Sri Lanka bound to the West restricting the
progressive development of Sri Lanka
as a nonaligned independent .
He may take conditional loans from the World Banks to develop Sovereign State Sri Lanka according to their plans, binding to
the West. Sri Lanka
The global political power is changing and the South is for once showing signs of rising above the North.
India, and the other
SARC countries will be a new political power block. In that situation we should have a leader who
will not stooge to the West, if not Sri Lanka will be politically isolated. Sri Lanka has
to be along side its Asian neighbours, without ceasing to have economic relations
with the West. Sri Lanka
The elimination of terrorism and bringing peace to Sri Lanka by the President Mahinda Rajapakse marks the dawn of a new age in Sri Lanka, where the past political systems has no place. The Parliamentary System , democracy and justice have to change to develop
as an independent Sovereign
State without restrictive alignment with the former
colonial Westminster Democracy, the colonial administrative system and the
British economic theories, by which the opposition politicians continue to
development process. Sri Lanka
President Mahinda Rajapakse was not a peace time President. When he assumed his office
had been pushed into a
worst possible situation by the former Presidents who did not know what to do with terrorism. JR Jayawardhane allowed Sri Lanka India to mutilate the Sri Lanka Constitution of
which he himself was the architect by introducing the 13 Amendment at the
behest of . R.Premadasa armed the terrorists against the
Indian Peace Keeping Force, which strengthened the terrorists who turned the
arms against the people of India and its Armed Forces. Chandrika Kumaratunga was made a phantom
President with Ranil Wickramasinghe
taking over political decisions signing
a CFA with the terrorists and reducing the Sri Lanka Armed Forces a weak ceremonial Army confined to their
The people of
were living an uncertain life not knowing in what form death would come to them
and their children. The country was in
the verge of being territorially
divided. The terrorist leader was being
called both the President and the Prime Minister of the Tamil people. Sri Lanka
It is into this scenario that Mahinda Rajapakse stepped in as the President of Sri Lanka. He may not have been sure whether he would be able to keep his promise to the people to eliminate terrorism, and bring peace and prosperity. He had to rely on his brother Gotabhaya who is the only one in the family who had military experience and only one he could trust in his perilous undertaking to eliminate a ruthless, strong, well established group of terrorists who were already dictating terms to hopelessly weak and demoralised Sri Lankan governments which were clueless about a way out of the inglorious situation.
Mahinda Rajapakse is an ordinary man . He is no miracle maker. He is a man with a tremendous love for his country. His determination, and unshaken trust in himself to overcome obstacle to achieve his objective made him a rare patriot to liberate
from the situation it was in and bring peace and prosperity to the people. Sri Lanka
We are just armchair critics who think that we have the solutions to all situations and criticise the President because he does not fall into the image of a President we have created in our minds. But Mahinda Rajapakse the President of Sri Lanka showed that he is different from others and succeeded not only in ending the thirty years of suffering under terrorism, but took Sri Lanka progressively forward in all fields until it reversed the myth that the development is reserved to the white West.
The West has failed both economically, and politically .
is almost bankrupt, the President of France has fallen low in popularity, and
the country is economically in a mess, with unemployment rising, Spain, Portugal
and Italy have still not
found solutions to their economic problems,
also has its internal problems. UK is not yet out of the
financial crisis it had to face, but continues to create tension every where in
the globe, placing obstacles to developing countries. America
Henrikas Mickevicius in an article on Tolerance as a basis of Democratic Development writes:
“ I have a strong sense that in recent years traditional Center-right political forces in the
Western world - in Europe and the
, at least - have been moving, United
sometimes radically, to the right, and in particular on social and moral issues.
Hard - and loud – politicians who claim being dedicated patriots and moral purists are
increasingly gaining control in the traditional centre-right parties by employing
stereotypes, prejudices, and radical rhetoric; advocating for and implementing public
policies, disrespectful of human rights, and promoting the culture of intolerance; using,
and sometimes distorting, Christian faith to support their positions; exploiting their
societies‘ economic insecurities and fears.
In the long run, it will cause problems for these parties as they increasingly alienate
moderates who are concerned about the quality of democracies in their States. Along
the way, however, they will damage Western tradition of tolerance, respect for human
rights, and consequently undermine democracy, as these three concepts are closely
related and interdependent.” (http://www.hrmi.lt/uploaded/PDF%20dokai/Tolerance%20as%20a%20Basis%20of%20Democratic%20Development%20.pdf )
The President Mahinda Rajapakse eliminated terrorism and brought peace to the people of
in his first term of office. In his
second term of Office, he developed the infra structure of the country. He united
the people, established peace, and security.
He made head way in economic development. Sri Lanka
If Tamils in the North are still claiming discrimination against the Tamils, it is because the Tamil politicians who have still not given up the dream of the terrorists are misleading the Tamil people not to cooperate with the President and his government despite the enormous development brought to the North and east and improved their living condition far better than it had ever been before.
No leader of people escapes from critics and enemies. Jesus, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Lumumba were killed for, their ideas. Those who places trust in others are blamed when those trusted turn out to be unworthy of such trust. Even Devadatta became the enemy of the great Buddha.
The President Mahinda Rajapakse is a Sinhala Buddhist. He maintains a high standard of moral values which no other political leader could claim. He is a leader who shared responsibilities expecting those who were placed in position of trust carry out their duties.
It is through that means that he has been able to develop
in all its aspects. Sri Lanka
He is accused for nepotism, mismanagement, misdirection and what not. But it is nepotism that helped him to be successful in eliminating the worst calamity
terrorism. It is still his close
relatives he could trust above any one else. He has set out the ways to develop
the country, and managing and the direction of those activities are in the
hands of those who have been entrusted with them. Sri Lanka
Samararatne a well known meditation teacher often visited Western countries to conduct meditation retreats. Once speaking
to the meditators at his Meditation Centre in Nilambe, said that when he
conducted retreats abroad every thing was well organised, when he was invited
to address the meditators, he was conducted to
a comfortable seat, with a low table on the side with a glass of
water, and provided with a clock to see
that he keeps within his allocated time.
But he said at Nilamba there is no such order and well managed retreats,
but out of that disorganised chaos here comes out some thing beautiful, a unity of thoughts, a deep attention, and a vibrant understanding of Dhamma.

Despite the strong criticism of corruption
has not stagnated in underdevelopment, though some opinionated critics do not,
hesitate to call
under Mahinda Rajapakse a failed state
or a banana republic. But whether such derogatory and immature comparisons have
any value is for the intelligent people to understand. Sri Lanka
President Mahinda Rajapakse has done what he could with the available “material”. It is impossible for him to be personally responsible for the activities of his Ministries, Departments and Institutions. But nevertheless he has seen to it that the development of the country are pursued nonetheless.
At a time the future of
was bleak, and the war against terrorism needed every one’s support , it was a
boon that there were many who crossed over from the opposition to join his
rank. He had to find them positions to
win their trust and confidence, and thus
the large cabinet which resulted was a sheer necessity. But
some of those who crossed over had stood
staunchly by the President and helped him in his task to take Sri Lanka
forward. Sri Lanka
President Mahinda Rajapakse cannot do miracles, nevertheless to-day
is a “miracle”. He has developed Sri Lanka as a visionary projecting
his ideas and philosophies of development in to “ Mahinda Chintanaya”. He has carried out part of it and shown
results. Sri Lanka
There is no political leader to replace him. Ranil Wickramasinghe blindly following the Western Agenda would be a disaster. He would undo what Mahinda Rajapakse has so painstakingly done to bring
to where it is today. Sri
