Failed imperialist attempts to vanquish Sri Lanka - Part.II

By A.A.M.Nizam

(June 13, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) It was not only in the recent war theater that the British Government and British authorities opposed Sri Lanka and made every effort to undermine the legitimate aspirations of Sri Lankan masses. When the people’s resurgence took place in the 1950s, shattering Britain’s hidden objectives of remote controlling Sri Lankan affairs through their proxies differing only in the colour of skin, Britain had been hostile to Sri Lanka whenever it became possible. Britain made desperate attempts to save the terrorist leadership even against the wishes of the Tamil masses. Rajan Hoole and K. Srithar

We have even experienced the agony of some British High Commissioners trespass their diplomatic privileges and behaving with the colonial mindset. Dominic Chilcot was one such arrogant and despicable individual who violated all diplomatic norms who behaved crudely like a warlord during his assignment in Sri Lanka. He even visited newspaper editors to instruct them what to write and what not to write.

This arrogant High Commissioner indulged in many controversial issues and the Dudley Senanayake memorial lecture delivered by him on 10th December 2007 was a highly despicable pronouncement which even deserved his immediate deportation.

Totally digressing from the topic he was supposed to speak, he made the occasion a platform to introduce neo-colonialist concepts and pass on horrendous commandments to Sri Lanka. This malevolent nitwit was the rogue who introduced the concept of what is called the “R2P” the right to protect or right to interfere in Sri Lanka, saying that “South Asian affairs have become very much a part of British political life and Britain has a direct interest in the conflict here and in the establishment of a fair and lasting peace”. This nitwit ridiculed the concept of absolute sovereignty of nations, and also declared that political aspiration for Eelam was not illegitimate.

It was this dunderhead’s despicable speech that gave a life line to the NGO vultures, political traitors, and media dogs to invite all sorts of good for nothing malingerer scoundrels to storm our nation one after the other in the pretext of attending various inapt memorial and community functions and emphasize the right of the international community to intervene in our internal affairs, criticize the mode of governance, raise a cry of alleged human rights violations, abductions, extortions, killings etc, and demand restrictions to development assistance and even justifiable loans, until such time that Sri Lanka conceded to their demands.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who inaptly thinking himself that Sri Lanka is yet a British colony, made several neurotic and compulsive telephone calls to His Excllency the President demanding to halt the military operation for two weeks and even insisted on sending a special envoy to report to him on the status of military operations in the North. If it was not for our steely willed President and his forthright response that war will be over within two weeks this ruffian and penny-wise pound foolish Scottish Suddha would have achieved his vicious objectives as he wished.

It was however, amazing to find this ruffian the other day in an absolute display of duplicitous policy on terrorism calling the frontier between Afghanistan and Pakistan 'a source of a chain of terror', a crucible of terror, reaching as far as the streets of Britain. He therefore wanted Afghanistan and Pakistan tackled together with might and main. It is also equally amazing to find this ruffian being blind to tiger terrorist hooliganism and vandalism prevalent not only in the streets of Britain but also in the British Parliamentary Square, the seat of so-called democracy, which these terrorists have named as “Tiger Square”, bullying the Sri Lankan President to halt military operations and give a respite to the terrorist leadership, in complete contrast to policies he advocates for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The ignominious iters as “Sillyband”) was the last futile attempt made by the British imperialists to provide a life line to the terrorist leadership and reverse the marvellous gains made by the Sri Lankan gallant forces in the Northern front, with enormous sacrifices, which was a sheer humiliation to the so-called powerful armies of U.S and Britain getting mercilessly slaughtered daily in Iraq and Afghanistan. This Psychopath who had even attempted to belittle and deride the political hierarchy of India, found the real match in our outspoken heroic Defense Secretary Mr Gotabhaya Rajapkse who bluntly told him that people in this country approve of what the President is doing and a leader must listen to people in his own country and not to the foreign minister of the UK. Rejecting his call for a ceasefire and access for what they call ‘aid workers’ to the civilian zone, Mr. Rajapakse vowed that the government would not stop its war on terror until the LTTE was crushed and its leader Velupillai Prabhakaran captured, dead or alive. He was ultimately forced to depart our shores pratfallen and mission unaccomplished.

Demonstrating his sordid character, upon return to his home-grounds, this Sillyband made a statement in the House of Commons on belittling the Governmen’s relief efforts, disputing the figures relating to rescued and entrapped persons, and blamed the government for not permitting their designated stooges to enter/visit the camps. However, the multi-party British Parliamentary delegation who visited Sri Lanka on the invitation of H.E. the President, after visiting the camps in Vavuniya negated his allegations.

Having defeated the ruthless terrorist gang militarily and having opened a new chapter in the history of the world and having even taught a lesson to the powerful countries of the world on how to defeat terrorism, we should not remain complacent about the laurels of our achievement. We must be mindful that the horrendous unpatriotic (the minority) elements in Sri Lanka and the remnants of tiger terrorists in the West and Tamil Nadu in collaboration with the haughty western nations who are unhappy about our success would make every attempt to create dissent and discord in Sri Lanka and design the landscape for the terrorists to raise their ugly heads once again in different and unexpected forms as happened in many counties in the world. These vicious elements could raise their ugly heads in the form of neo-terrorism, economic subjugation, trade restrictions, cultural enslavement, religious aversion, or communal disharmony.

In the meantime, individually and collectively we must make every endeavour to confront these anti-Sri Lankan elements and either win them over or defeat them through every possible means, which among other things may include:

- Sri Lankan government should adopt a firm non vacillating foreign policy upholding righteous causes similar to the foreign policy adopted by the late Prime Minister Mr. S.W.R.D.Bandaranaike prior to the advent of the Non-Aligned Movement. Sri Lanka may even give leadership to such a multi-polar foreign policy;

- The Embassies/High Commissions should cease to be springboards for providing educational and employment opportunities for the children and relations of the Embassy officials. The Embassy officials should operate round the clock to counter anti Sri Lankan vicious propaganda and promote and propagate about true facts on Sri Lanka and the Embassies should become vehicles of building bridges between the respective countries and Sri Lanka. They should coordinate their activities with the Sri Lankan community resident in the respective countries and encourage and induce these personnel to act as Sri Lankan emissaries in their respective fields;

-Sri Lankans resident in foreign countries should form non racist, non exclusive organisations to promote all aspects of life in Sri Lanka and these groups should regularly meet legislators, powerful government officials, community leaders, industrialists, religious dignitaries and other important personalities to enlighten them about the true facts of life in Sri Lanka, to counter vicious propaganda against Sri Lanka, to promote tourism and trade, and to enlighten them on facilities, resources and opportunities available in Sri Lanka. They should also organise periodical cultural events, trade fares, tourist promotion and social gathering events in collaboration with Embassies/High Commissions in the respective countries enabling important personalities of the respective countries to attend and also encourage them to visit Sri Lanka and spend their holidays in our paradise island.

-Many foreign based terrorist Tamil commentators have boasted that their struggle would not cease with the decimation of the military arm and it woud now take a new vibrant form to pressurise the western countries and deny Sri Lanka any form of assistance and brand it as an outlaw nation. All patriotic Sri Lankans resident in foreign countries should continuously be vigilant of these intrigues, misrepresentation and distortion of facts and effectively counter such moves and expose the criminal elements and their vicious motives.

- Wherever we are we must get rid of our enslaved mindset of considering western products, western culture superior, such as the silly concepts of suddha wage, suddha hadapuwa, and make every efforts to live as Sri Lankans, appreciate values of Sri Lankan life, buy Sri Lankan products and in the alternative to buy only products of our friendly nations, thereby imposing a boycott on western products.

As His Excellency the President, while granting appointments to nearly 1,000 Graduate Teachers, emphasised recently that we should drop the words “NO”and “CAN’T” from our vocabulary, the foregoing suggestions are some of the points we can certainly accomplish if we unitedly and determinedly take action similar to the glorious feat our gallant forces achieved under enormous hardships and with unprecedented sacrifices. Let us show our gratitude to the nation by working hard in whatever way possible to rebuild our shattered nation and make it once again a mighty nation in the East.

This is an excellent analysis of the events and the way forward for Sri lanka.The writer displays an enormous degree of patriotism tempered with common sense solutions as to many ways we could effectively deal with the Western attitude to the safety and security of smaller nations. We are amazed by the high handed attitude of British.They need to be put in their place in Asia by Asians.Sri lanka has paved the way for the onslaught which must be now pursued with vigour with India ,China and Japan leading the way.Japan must be persuaded to resume its place in Asia and wean itself from its' aloofness to Asian issues through blind Americanisation of its culture.
