Mangala Samaraweera’s Kisses Have Gone With The Wind

Mahindapala

By H. L. D. Mahindapala

With great fanfare and ballyhoo the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe (Siri-Wicky) government promised that they alone could conquer “the international community” (meaning the big power brokers of the West) which the previous regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa had alienated. This promise to conquer the world and restore Sri Lanka’s position in the world stage was based on several factors: 1. Siri-Wicky regime is pro-West committed with a foreign policy aligned to the American axis; 2. the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is the Asian Vice President of International Democratic Union – a leading political front of the West claiming to promote democracy; 3. it is acknowledged, though not officially, that the Siri-Wicky government was brought into power with the “blessings” of the American-Indian operatives; 4. in the new policy of “pivot to Asia” the Siri-Wicky government was expected to provide a safe haven to counter increasing Chinese presence in the Indian Ocean 5. Siri-Wicky regime has already appeased the West by absorbing their hired agents in the NGOs as a part of the administration, and , of course, 6. the promise of “good governance” with its emphasis on democratic norms that were supposed to warm the cockles of the Western decision-makers whose foreign policy was to “export democracy” to the rest of the world

Not since J. R. Jayewardene, the “Yankee Dicky”, went all the way with the Americans, including Margaret Thatcher’s war in the Falklands, has any government gone this far to appease the West. With these pro-West inter-personal and international relations the Siri-Wicky regime was quite confident that it could overcome the disadvantages faced by the anti-West Mahinda Rajapakse regime.

It was with these credentials that President Maithripala Sirisena led the first foreign mission to UK. He came back crowing that he shook the ungloved hand of Queen. Shaking the ungloved hand of the Queen was presented as conquest of great magnitude. He was also overjoyed that Prime Minister Cameron walked all the way from his residence at No. 10, Downing Street to open the car door for him and escort him inside. Obviously, President Sirisena returned home believing that he had won over just not Cameron but even the Queen. Now we are told that UK is one of the European countries rejecting the domestic inquiry and insisting on the hybrid court.

While the President junketed in the West the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe parachuted into India to conquer the Big Brother. He has returned from Delhi giving the distinct impression that he has divorced the kahi gani (woman with a cough) from China and married the hotu gani (woman with snot) from India. On the issue of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) report, it is possible that India will be opposed to the hybrid court of foreign judges because it has serious consequences to India. Supporting a hybrid court in Sri Lanka could be a precedent for UN to step in to investigate human rights violations of Indian forces in Kashmir. So with or without Wickremesinghe India can be expected to back Sri Lanka’s moves for a domestic inquiry.

In between, Mangala Samaraweera, who fancies himself as the kokatath-thailaya (all cure) to Sri Lanka’s foreign problems, went to America and wooed John Kerry. After extolling “the level of excellent and close relations” with America he assured Kerry that “America is not a threat but an opportunity”. To underscore the lovey-dovey relationship Managala went all out, with the gallantry of a knight in democratic armour, to kiss Nisha Desai Biswal, American Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs. In the video she seemed to have been somewhat taken aback by the unexpected show of diplomatic affection. Samaraweera, however, was acting on the assumption that his oscular thrust was a great diplomatic coup to convince Uncle Sam of his effusive personal affection as great, if not greater, than that of “Yankee Dicky”. He was also out to impress the Sri Lankan public that he was not only on kissing terms with America but had also succeeded in mending the fences that were broken by Mahinda Rajapaksa.

All this was a prelude to soften America’s attitude towards Sri Lanka. Mangala Samaraweera was operating on the premise that the pro-West policy, plus the special quality of his personal diplomacy, would give him the leverage to manipulate America to go soft on Sri Lanka. He made his personal appearance at the UNHRC hoping his diplomacy had that magic quality to get a favourable results from the international community. He was initially buoyed by the postponement of the UNHRC report which was held back to help the Siri-Wicky government to get over any political embarrassment at the elections. In fact, the Siri-Wicky regime boasted that it was able to get the report postponed in March implying that it has already won the “international community” to its side. But when the report finally landed on Samaraweera’s desk it proved to be a negation of all his expectations. There was nothing to crow about it at all. His diplomacy had come to nought. The West was insisting on a hybrid court with international judges, prosecutors and investigators.

Unable to find anything positive he spun the yarn that there were no names of Sri Lankan forces mentioned in the report, accusing them of war crimes. The stunned Siri-Wicky government hastily summoned a press conference to say that the report would have been worse if Mahinda Rajapaksa was in power. That is all they could say to save their faces. But the shocking report in the Colombo Telegraph reveals that the UNHRC report had initially named President Sirisena who was the Acting Minister of Defence in the last days of the war. This has sent shivers down the spine of the Siri-Wicky government. To divert attention away from President Sirisena Wickremesinghe has given a spin to this episode. He claims that his government saved Mahinda Rajapaksa from the electric chair, hiding the fact that President Sirisena too was among the walking dead in the UNHRC list, as revealed in the Colombo Telegraph.

The grim reality is that the recommended hybrid court is still hanging over their heads like the Damocles’ Sword. Though not named in the UNHRC report there is nothing to prevent the proposed hybrid court from pursuing both President Mahinda Rajapaksa and President Sirisena until they are sent to the electric chair. This is where Mangala Samaraweera has failed. He failed to convince the international community that Sri Lanka could successfully handle its own problems with its own mechanisms. He failed to establish that Sri Lanka is willing and capable of handling its own affairs. His kissing America has taken him nowhere. Fortunately, he has the nation willing, able and ready to resist any attempt to foist the hybrid court on Sri Lanka. Ultimately, he and the Siri-Wicky government will have to save the nation not by kissing Biswas but by mobilising the grass root forces to defeat the bogus human rights champions out to get the defenders of the nation.

The UNHRC report is a bludgeon waiting to come down on the heads of both Sirisena and Rajapaksa. It is a victory for the Tamil lobby and blunt vote of no-confidence in the Siri-Wicky regime. Just a week or so before Samaraweera took the floor at the UNHRC and gave a detailed account of how the Siri-Wicky regime had bent over backwards to appease the Tamils. His self-laudatory speech was to convince the Tamil lobby as well as the “international community” that they could trust the Siri-Wicky regime to deliver whatever is required to satisfy/appease them. He was all out to impress that the Siri-Wicky government had reversed the anti-West policies and was ever willing to go along with his new allies in London-Paris-and Washington. With the appeasement of the Tamil lobby – President even had a meal (not egg hoppers!) with the GTF in London – and the West Samaraweera was hoping to shine as the saviour of Sri Lanka. But the big show put by the Siri-Wicky-Samaraweera trio ended like the drama of the “100-days” – no action, talk only (NATO). To use the apt and pithy Sinhala saying, it was a case of low-keta pra-kasay, geddetta mara-gathey! (Great big show to the outside world but it is utter disaster at home.)

The UNHRC report is a virtual confirmation of the position taken by the Tamil lobby abroad and at home. R. Sampanathan too has expressed his lack of confidence in the domestic mechanism and he now wants a domestic and the hybrid courts, trying to have it both ways. The Tamil Diaspora is out to get the hybrid court. After sharing a meal with the President they turned round and accused him of war crimes because he was the Acting Head of the forces in the last two weeks of the war on the banks of Nandikadal. Both the Tamil lobby and the West have left Samaraweera whistling in the wind. With friends like the Tamil Diaspora and the West does Samaraweera need any additional enemies?

The main thrust of the Samaraweera mission at the UNHRC was to get the approval for the local judicial mechanism to investigate allegations mentioned in the UNHRC report. It would have been a great diplomatic coup for him if he won that. But neither the pumping of John Kerry’s hand nor the kissing of Biswal gave Samaraweera the trophy he needed to crow that he is the Mohammed Ali of the Sri Lankan External Ministry. He, in fact, has fallen flat on his face. The biggest blow to him has come from the UNHRC report. It welcomes, recognises, approves, etc., the work done by the Siri-Wicky government and then turns round and says the government cannot be trusted to deliver justice. It is insisting on a hybrid court consisting mainly of foreign judges, prosecutors, investigators etc. So what has Samaraweera achieved to enhance his reputation as the foreign minister who rescued the nation from a foreign invasion of imported judges, prosecutors and investigators? Or save the necks of the national heroes? In the UNHRC report they are seen as war criminals. Clearly, Samaraweera has been releasing bags of hot air at the UNHRC because the upshot of all his rhetoric at the UNHRC was a thundering slap in his face. The statement that he delivered to the international community from the floor of the UNHRC was not worth the paper on which he wrote it. Even his own kissing friends have rejected it out of hand.

It is pretty clear that the boomerang he threw at the Sri Lankan judges has returned with a vengeance and knocked him down. He and his regime went round the world condemning the judiciary and now the “international community” is saying that they can’t trust the judiciary which he and his government has condemned. As if that is not enough, the Chief Minister of the North, C. V. Wigneswaran, a former judge of the Supreme Court, too has endorsed the view that the Tamils can’t expect justice from the courts. He must be speaking from his own experience as a judge for him to speak with such authority on the role of the bench of which he was apart until recently. He thinks he is smart in condemning the judiciary of which he was an integral part. But in doing so he is condemning his own integrity for having sat in a judiciary which he says now cannot be trusted to deliver fair judgement. Doesn’t that mean that he too was one of them? If he was not and if he was a man of integrity why didn’t he speak out then and expose the judiciary? Why didn’t he resign? Why is he condemning the judiciary now, now that it is politically expedient for him to gain political mileage? Judging by his latest statement, it seems that he was also a bird of the same feather that sat together on the same bench?

That apart, there seems to be no takers for the hybrid court recommended by the UNHRC? Not even Wickremesinghe can go for it knowing that President Sirisena’s head is also at stake. If the Siri-Wicky regime was hoping to use it as threat to keep Mahinda Rajapakse in line it has backfired on them because because President Sirisena is also in the same boat. As the distinguished lawyer, Gomin Dayasiri, told “Paki” Saravanamuttu and Jehan (Pacha) Perera in reply to their backing of the UNHRC report in the MTV debate, the “hybrid court is putrid.” Lawyer Dayasiri pooh-poohed the idea of “Paki” and “Pacha” Perera who were insisting on focusing only on the “victims”, meaning the Tamils who were caught in the last days of the war. After the deadly blows dealt by Dayasiri the two hired hacks of the NGOs backtracked. Genuine reconciliation has to go beyond the Tamil “victims”. It has to be a universal approach including all victims of the needless war declared by the Tamil leadership in the Vadukoddai Resolution of May 1976.

One of the fundamental flaws of the UNHRC report is also to focus on the “victims” of the last stages of the war. This is the political line of the Tamil lobby. The credibility and the competence of the UNHRC report is on the line when it concludes that a 33 year-old war ( 1976 May – 2009 May) can produce only Tamil victims. Isn’t the Minister for Housing, Sajith Premadasa, a victim of the war crimes committed by the LTTE? Isn’t Navin Dissanayake, another Minister a victim of the war crimes committed by the LTTE? Of all the southern political parties aren’t the UNPers the leading victims of the Vadukoddai war initiated, directed, financed, propagated, militarized, and brutalized by the Tamil leadership both at home and abroad?

Besides, the failure of the UNHRC to come to grips with the ground situation comprehensively, in all its historical, socio-political and international dimensions, makes them a part of the problem instead of their putative role of being problem-solvers. Successive heads of the UNHRC – from Louise Arbour, to Navi Pillay to Prince Zeid – have failed to grasp the multi-dimensional realities and continued to exacerbate the situation with their one-eyed view of the longest running war in Asia. Sadly, they have been serving the vested interests of selected lobbies and not the victims of “the latest Pol Pot of Asia”. (New York Times).

The UNPers in particular and the Parliamentarians as a whole must reject the partisan and unfair UNHRC report in toto and insist that Sri Lanka should go it alone and develop its own mechanism to deal with its own problems. If Sri Lanka could end the unwinnable war with its own initiatives there is no reason why it can’t win peace and reconciliation with its collective efforts.

This, of course, may require a more vigorous campaign of kissing at the international level. Perhaps, Samaraweera should start new courses in kissing for all our diplomats before they are posted to foreign missions. But those planning the course in osculation should take extra care to limit kissing only to the cheeks above the neck and not go down to the nether regions in the posterior of the anatomy.

    why were not his and others in the ruling regime efforts – to bring the kind of watered down report by UNHRC ? You born donkeys would always wait to pick anything being unable to succeed the term. Shame on you bugger – Aussies should be shameful to have given your refuge – for such a person who cant see it right yet being in mid 70ties.

    Dear HLDM,

    Let us assume we buy your argument “Foreign Policy” of the Siri-Wicky government is blindly pro-Western. And naively so as well. Coz’ nobody gets a free lunch. Specially not from USA-UK axis.

    But, I am yet to see your critical analysis of “Foreign Policy” of the deposed dictator from Hambantota. When can we see it?

    1. Remember deposed dictator’s chosen envoy to Washington? His first cousin “Tea Mudalali”. Have you analyzed that guy’s services to improve Sri Lanka’s standing in Washington? If so, when can we see it?

    2. Remember monitoring “baggage boy” specially appointed by the dictator to MFA in Colombo? Remember the uncivilized assault on Sri Lanka’s ambassador to London Chris Nonis? Where’s your analysis on that matter?

    Why have you spared the former dictator? What about his corrupt extended family, cronies & henchmen?

    Exactly who warms your cockles?

    Cheers!

      I am disappointed in you for not commenting on every article that deals with capital punishment.

      I hoped you would take a proactive part in opposing capital punishment.

      It is not our responsibility to teach an old dog new tricks however we do have a duty to protect our principles.

      Lets have a minimum of 10 comments from you under each article.

      We say no to capital punishment.

        I am involved in a family brawl over Capital Punishment.

        I am embarrassed to report this. A surprising portion of my extended family is screaming for primitive barbarism & revenge. As justice.

        Need to bulldoze those idiots at home first.

        Cheers!

        PS: Do not despair. History is on our side. We shall prevail. No to death penalty. Ever again! Not on our soil after 40 years. Very disappointed with Prez Siri on this issue.

            Now my dear NV many seem to console themselves on the fact that though we have CP in principle it is not there in practice. Well, I would rather have the opposite. That way at least we pay homage to the moral principle of not killing to stop killing while acknowledging human weakness and the need to move forward. This avoiding implementation has come about as a result of the hypocritical attitude of unwillingness to push the last button while being quite content with someone else doing it.

                Yes NV, what is FUNDAMENTALLY important is to agree in principle that there is no such punishment as kiling in the first place and then move forward from that position. As I said, to agree on kiling a killer and then avoid doing it is just a ruse to get someone else to do the dirty job while you have a good night’s sleep – a foolproof way of perpetuating it.

                  So you agree that one should kill first and then justify it by some sort of manufactured principle(s).

                  I haven’t had a good night sleep since I was born as you know the stupid Tamils have been occupying the North while their stupid Sinhalese brethren have been extending their Ghetto from the South. I don’t even have room to stretch arms and legs.

                    We did have capital punishment in practice until Jan 8th. Remember all those incidents where accused criminals had to be shot in self- defence by the police when they suddenly produced grenades and other weapons ? Of course nobody found this unusual.

                      The last judicial killing was carried out in 1976.

    This article seems to have one sole intention And that is to accuse the Siri-Wiki Government of not looking after the country’s interests – thus selling Sri Lanka’s soul and sovereignty to the West.

    Sri Lanka is in an appalling position diplomatically through the amateur behavior of the previous Government. The Rajapaksa Government consistently denied any wrongdoing at the end of the war despite compelling evidence that began to emerge. The international communities antennae would have immediately sensed something was wrong the minute it was claimed that there were no civilian casualties at the end of the war. A claim that would have made it into the Guinness book of records as the only civil war that ended without civilian casualties, had it not been so absurd.

    The author demonizes at every turn the behavior of Mangala Samaweera.
    This man has been thrown into the lions den through the amateurish behavior of the previous Government, whose ill educated representatives behaved and treated the UN as if it were a school playground !

    Time and again the UN encouraged Sri Lanka to hold an inquiry in to what happened at the end of the war and Rajapaksa simply ignored the UN. Until eventually the muzzle of the UN rifle began to be raised incrementally after each resolution, until finally Sri Lanka was a sitting duck in the cross-hairs of the UN,with no where to hide.

    And this is were the present Government finds itself, trying to put the fires out that the arrogant irresponsible Rajapakse Government lit, before they develop and Sri Lanka faces an Inferno.

    The Author only offers criticism of the present Sirisena Government. Where does he believe Sri Lanka would now be if Rajapakse were still at the helm of the good ship SS Sri Lanka. Sailing comfortably on calm blue waters, or heading full steam ahead for a reef well charted on the map called International sanctions.

    The Srisena Goverment and particularly Mangala Samawera have a Herculean task now of trying to balance Sri Lanka’s national interests against its legal commitments to the UN through complying with the international protocols it has signed up to.

    If Sri Lanka doesn’t co-operate completely with the UN we can expect some sort punishment RE: economic sanctions or even suspension from the UN.

    So please don’t take cheap jabs at this Government because at the moment Sri Lanka is between a rock and a hard stone.The Government needs all its energy to fight off the serious allegations leveled at the Rajapaksa Regime, the last thing they need is criticism from their own people.

    Yo, the butcher at the market was right when he said “tripe is cheap today”.

    HLD you know you are bullshitting when you say ‘ It has to be a universal approach including all victims of the needless war declared by the Tamil leadership ‘. Whoa, the Tamil leadership that was did not declare ‘war’. Where were you in May 1958 when the rampaging mobs tore into our defenceless Tamil brethren? Oh, eating kedgeree in the Lake House canteen? Bumming for a story down some side street in the Fort? Did you not hear us thinking aloud, ‘how long will these people continue to suffer the indignities we heap on them?’ As always, you are shamelessly economical with the actuality but you have shown time and again that you are nothing but a shit-stirrer determined to undermine all our efforts to reconcile and bring true peace back to this blessed land. What a way to spend a retirement, concocting stories that betray your baser instincts. You’d be more useful idling down Flinders Street with your sarong tucked up, watching the world go by, than by continuing to finger about in the affairs of the home you forsook when the going got tough.

    The fact is that all Sinhala Politicians are guilty of war crime and crime against humanity against Tamils since Sri Lanka got independence.

When the music stops who ever is on the chair is given to govern the country like a puppet on a string. When the puppet refuse to dance to the music, every one else is aksed to join the musical chair game again.

    The argument here is that people have been duped to believe that a pro western foreign policy alone will make the problem go away. This is very childish and primitive thinking. UN agencies simply won’t behave like Sri Lankan government Departments. UNHRC is bigger than this issue and requires to maintain its credibility. It also has the responsibility to consider solutions that are perceived as made based on concensus.
    Now there is a very good question raised about the trustworthiness of the SL judiciary. A very good question not only to Vigneswaran, but also to the legal professionals as a whole. I’m yet to hear anything from the lawyers association or the likes on this matter. It would be intersting and well worth to take their opinion in to account.

    Backers behind the Regime Change

    The primary backers behind the coup for a ‘Regime Change’ in Sri Lanka were the Tamil Diaspora, who had a vindictive agenda to take revenge against Mahinda Rajapakse and Gotabaye Rajapakse for wiping out the LTTE and Prabarkaran. Prabarkaran was propped up by the elite Christian Tamils living in luxury in Colombo for the purpose of creating a second Eelam in the North with Jaffna as the capital. None of these Tamils had any intention then or now of living in the North. Politicians in Canada, US, UK were influenced with LTTE monetary gifts to back the Tamils. Tamils are very racist in nature and whatever they owned had to have Tamil written or mentioned – Tamil Union, Tamil School, Tamil Cricket club etc.

    The second backer in line was Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu has an exploring population of between 60 million to 80 million and nowhere to go. It was their intention for many decades to break away from India, annexe Sri Lanka and make Tamil Nadu a proud independent Tamil Nation solving the population explosion at the same time. This dream was unsuccessful due to Sri Lanka’s strong political leaders until now.

    Third backer was the European Union at the request of US to bankrupt Sri Lanka released LTTE money just before the election to help finance the ‘Regime Change. US sent emissaries to talk with the opposition to sift those ripe enough to betray their country. Billions of dollars were sent through many sources to bribe the potential traitors and for the media hype against Mahinda Rajapakse. North and the East were the beneficiaries of some of this dollar bonanza.

    Fourth backers were the Sinhela Christians, their priorities are divided between their religion and their country. Some Sinhela Buddhist forgot their more than 2600 year Sinhela Buddhist history, forgetting that Sri Lanka is the only country they have and most importantly forgetting that Mahinda Rajapakse is also a Sinhela Buddhist who stopped the 30 year killings, a great Statesman and an outstanding leader respected World wide, even today. These affluent middle class Sinhela people only think about their stomach and their pension, not their country – it was easy to use Rajapakse as a scape goat because Sinhela people love to accuse someone whether it is true or not.

    Sirisena, Ranil, Mangala brings out the issue of racism against the Sinhela people (ජාතිවාදය හෝ ආගම්වාදය අවුස්සා ප්‍රශ්න විසඳන්න බැහැ – අගමැතිගේ විශේෂ ප්‍රකාශය). but never with the Tamils. Sinhela people have never been racist that is why for years they lived with the Tamils and Muslims in harmony. Even during the LTTE years racism was the factor Tamils started the killing fields, even then the Sinhela people were patient. Muslims used an incident in Beruwela to attack the Sinhela people on racism. This year, this government bought over by the Tamil Diaspora is using racism against the Sinhela people to give in to the Tamils. Accusing Sinhela people of Racism is an effective way of muzzling the Sinhela people again and again. Damned if the Sinhela people open their mouth to defend their country, their religion and themselves, damned if they stay quiet.

    It is the Sinhela people themselves who are destroying themselves and their country for jobs, for perks for Sirisena for Ranil. The government is demanding absolute obedience to them until the country is given to Tamil Nadu. With the tunnel and a roadway to Tamil Nadu, Tamils from Tamil Nadu will pour into Sri Lanka and the Sinhela people will end up as a minority in their own country. Majority Sinhela journalist and media, majority parliamentarians in the government are Sinhela, together with the westernised Sinhela people in Colombo and other towns closing their eyes to the destruction of their own country.

    No God will help those who do not help themselves. By the time these people open their eyes and realise that they have been led the garden path, they will have lost everything. There is no return then.

    What happens to Sri Lanka now? You will have lost it all for your future generations.

    Mahindapala has never learned the idiom, brevity is the soul of wit [used here with an emphasis that wit is intelligence]. In all his articles he offsets the lack of facts with reams of rubbish. Exactly as he used to do when Sunday Observer editor where he gave full rein to his lack of both wit and journalism. Sunday readers were overwhelmingly burdened with page after page of absolute nonsense, until he was forcefully booted out by the very politicians who appointed him. His school essay teachers must still wring their hands when the read his offerings. They must say, he still hasn’t learned. Not so the many 10th standard students who quickly mastered the art after a teacher told them to “stick to the point” and to stop being a “pissa” by writing rubbish before marking a big red cross over the foolscap pages and adorning it with a big zero.

    Mangala has a design degree, we can’t expect him to beat the West which has been ruling the world for the last 700 years. The powerful West is less than 10% of the world population, yet it has been achieving its interests in the Indian Ocean through democracy, human rights and good governance. I warned the Chinese Communist leaders and asked to change the course to guide the Rajapaksas, but they have ignored me. I also exposed the West’s ill democracy in Australia, Canada, Germany and New Zealand, but Asian countries didn’t capitalize it, I suffered for nothing. Asians are the majority in the world, it is purely based on flesh, not by the knowledge. You can’t beat the West by your flesh. I see people everywhere in this tiny country of Sri Lanka; what is the point of having big population?

    I don’t think Asians can work together. Their flesh will be melting by their stupidity as it had happened in Japan due to atomic bombing. In the future the West doesn’t have to drop nuclear bombs in Asia, because Asians will drop nuclear bombs on their fellow Asians. I am not expecting them to acknowledge my knowledge, because I didn’t gain my knowledge in Asia. They don’t desire for knowledge nor value people like us. Ask why Asians suffered through atomic bombs? Because Asia has most dangerous and dark minds. I have applied for a job within the Sri Lankan foreign department, but no reply. It is a shame for Sri Lanka and Asia. I have a business degree and business diplomas from Australia. I have been working as an Accountant. I have lived in four continents, and have read hundreds of books to understand world history, cultures, languages, capitalism, democracy, communism, global economics and international politics. I have done two researches equal to two PhDs.

    My First Research Paper 2007–2009: “What are the stumbling blocks for Asians to prosper as the world’s majority in Asia as well as in the world” I have chosen the thesis, and the research materials; because Asians universities are not offering this kinds of thesis. The billions of Asians are divided, and they don’t have any protocol to unite Asia to move forward. Chinese have their own idea, so do Indians, Japanese and Koreans. Plus the West won’t offer this kind of thesis to help the Asians to dominate the world. My Second Research Paper 2009–2011: “What made the Western countries so powerful, and what it takes them to keep their power” I have chosen the thesis, and the research materials; because the Western countries won’t offer this kind of thesis to tell the world how they have been ruling the world, and how they are indented to carry-on forever to rule the world.

    Smart Asians are going nowhere in Asia, especially in South Asia; is it a curse or shame for the world’s majority in the 21st century?

      The Western countries “rule the world” today because they have perfected the art of applying organized violence to most situations. THAT is how they gained sway over us and many other countries in Asia.. even once-mighty Japan was brought to heel by the usage of the most horrid weapons devised.

      The balance will change when another nation or nations that has an equal or greater disregard for the loss of life comes to power.

        In the case of this island the stupid people kept unleashing violence only to destroy themselves.

        Go find out why.
