When Barrack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of USA the world was overwhelmed with hope that the
policy will turn a page from resorting
to armed intervention for regime change, and placing trade sanctions on sovereign states with
governments the USA State Department does not agree. He wanted to remove the
torture camps in USA Guantanamo, and bring back the
American soldiers from Iraq,
African countries were happy as they thought that the American policies towards Afghanistan Africa
will change and it will open the
American wealth to help the African Sovereign States struggling for
The President Barrack Obama soon proved that he was not different from his previous counter parts, and that he was only a black American. He merely carried out the policies the American State Department planned for him which he carried out to the letter. His political policies were centred in
and the white European
Sates. He did not engage himself in unfolding to the world a new American
foreign policy by starting a dialogue with America Russia
and China, but placed along
side the European camp, to maintain its leadership in the world. America
President Barrack Obama’s policies towards
were abhorrent. Barrack Obama worked with the
Tamil Diaspora in Sri Lanka
who called them-selves the Tamils for Obama. The Tamils for Obama wanted USA
State Department to help the Tamil Community in America have a separate State for Tamils carved out from Sri
Lankan territory. Sri Lanka
If the President Barrack Obama was a wise man , besides being the President of the wealthiest and powerful country of the world, he would have advised the Tamils for Obama, taking himself for an example, that the Tamils in Sri Lanka as a community should not separate themselves from the Sinhala Majority Community, but be a part of it as he had done.
He should have told the Tamils for Obama, that he a black Afro American did not want a separation of the Afro American Community, from the majority White American Community, but wanted to be a part of the majority white community, without demanding a separate State for Black African Community, carved out from the USA territory.
That is why both the Black Afro Americans and White Americans today live in harmony with each other proud of being the citizens of the same Nation of the
. Sri Lanka is
territorially much more smaller than USA therefore it is more the reason
why the Tamils, Sinhala and other Communities should bury their difference and
live as peoples of a one Sovereign Nation of United States of America . Sri Lanka
Neither the President Barrack Obama nor his State Department were honest to speak the truth to the Tamils for Obama and decided to create tension, disharmony, and antagonism between the Tamils and Sinhala in Sri Lanka and passed resolutions at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva accusing Sri Lanka for violation of human rights in the course of the elimination of terrorism in Sri Lanka.
Therefore the people of
is happy that the term of office of President Barrack Obama comes to an end on
the 20th of January,2017 with the swearing in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of USA. Sri Lanka
We welcome you President Donald Trump and we earnestly hope that you will not make the same mistakes that the former President Barrack Obama did by blindly following the policies of the US State Department without making an effort to understand them deeply to know how those policies will affect foreign Sovereign States with different communities of people with different Cultural back grounds. Pleas make those policies your own and see that giving effect to those policies will not put those developing nations into political hardship, disunity amoung its communities, damage their human dignity, and destroy the State’s territoriality.
The Advantage that the President Donald Trump has is his political inexperience. That is an advantage as he can start anew without having to imitate the politic of the Previous Presidents. In democracy it is said that the rulers will change but the governments will not change, as the Administrators remain the same to shape and carryout the same old policies with slight changes. This is what happened to Barrack Obama, his foreign policy was shaped by Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. And
were disastrous, in Libya, in Iraq,
in Afghanistan and in . Syria
The world has changed. The American political system was shaped to maintain its leadership role in the world. In that it selected developing countries as friends or foes according to the strategic geo-political place each one of them held in the world.
had in its desire to maintain its world leadership roll, kept away any nation capable of challenging
its assumed roll of the world leadership.
Russia therefore controlled which
followed a Marxist system of government by placing trade embargos against it.
It also placed trade sanctions on Cuba and got the European
countries to follow it. It imposed
Iranian Transaction Regulations
prohibiting export of oil. It
feared Russia ,
and watched suspiciously its diplomatic
relations with developing countries. China
USA is a nation without friends , it had only
the white European countries alongside it, as they depended on
military power for protection against likely military or terrorist attacks from
outside. Americas was so far a self-centred
nation and did not help any developing countries to rise above their
economic difficulties. The USA USA
allowed them to get loans from IMF or
World Bank but on conditions recommended by the . USA is ready to take from
developing nations what little they have, but gave very little or nothing in
The President Donald Trump is ready for dialogue with
, which is already a good
sign. He also seems to have no trust in
UNO, and had said that he may reconsider its contribution to the Budget of UNO.
He may not antagonise Russia .
But he has to learn more about the situation of China China
to understand it better and know its one policy. China
President Trump will have to understand that for a long time
as the Republic of China. It was given membership of the UNO , while the
mainland USA China –the Peoples Republic
of China was ignored, from
1945 to 1971, it was only in 1971 that the mainland China-the
became a member of the UNO and a member
of its Security Council. China
There is therefore a one
China policy under which Taiwan was requested that it accept itself as a part of China
continues to refuse. It was therefore natural that the Taiwan Peoples
Republic of may take offence for Donald
Trump as President elect personally calling the President of Taiwan, ignoring
the One China Policy. Hence if the new
President wishes to change the system, he
should learn to respect the internal policies of the other countries, specially
with regard to China China as China, Russia
are the economically an militarily powerful three Nations in the world today. America
Donal Trump may not accept Prince Zeid
Ra’ad Al Hussain as the UN High Commissioner
for Human rights interfere in to the internal affairs of other countries, by
way of violation of human rights. USA
Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein had said , “ if Donald Trump is elected President, on the basis of what he has said already, and unless that changes, I think it is without any doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view (New York Times, 12 October 2016). President elect also said that NATO is obsolete and UN a political game.
We still do not know what the new President’s foreign policy would be , but from what he has said so far we could expect changes for the betterment of the developing Nations.
Recently in a speech President Duterte of Philipines called Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein a joker, and a son of a bitch and that he has no right to call him a criminal for protecting his people from their enemies.( https://www.youtube.com/embed/2Ux-Qhb6WW0 ) .
The President or the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka did not have the guts to say that to Ra’ad Al Hussein.
