More questions In The Aftermath Of The Easter Sunday Carnage: Following The Socratic Method Of Inquiry, Albeit In A Lighter Vein

By K. Ganesh

More questions in the Aftermath of the Easter Sunday Carnage – following the Socratic Method of inquiry, albeit in a lighter vein

1. How many foreign intelligence agencies does it take to screw on a light bulb?

8 and counting; so far: P3 – FBI, Scotland Yard, Interpol for sure;  Aussie Intel, RAW and IB, absolutely, Japanese (QUAD) Intel, maybe, China (an injured party, indeed, and very likely Israel’s MOSSAD experts who after all are well versed on terror in Palestine, Mr. Putin’s KGB who would definitely want a piece of the action, perhaps, and of course, Singapore Expert– Mr. Inside Al Quaid himself, the redoubtable Professor of terror, Rohan Gunaratne of NTU who has demonstrated links to the US military business industrial complex, weapons manufacturers, and the murky world of CIA and IS terror intelligence.

1.1 There were 9 suicide bombers, so perhaps what’s needed are nine intelligence agencies: One for each bomber in the Easter carnage? 

After all primitive thinking cleaves to in magical thinking and numbers games (like for instance, the Buddha took 7 steps when he was born, and 7 lotus flowers bloomed) Now, various intelligence agencies are in Sri Lanka to craft the ”narrative” that the “IS Caliphate has landed”, Hollywood style, in this tropical island paradise, because, Islamic State Kingpin Al Baghdadi, got tired of desert sands and mountains, and wanted to take a Deep Dive in the Indian Ocean, correction, the recently invented ocean called the AMERICAN INDO-PACIFIC. It seems that no one has heard that TOO MANY COOKS, SPOIL THE SOUP?!

2. Why has Islamic State chosen in a 70 percent Buddhist, Tropical Island in the Indian Ocean to deliver a strong message to the West and Christians?

Now, it seems that IS head honcho, Al Baghdadi, tired of dessert sands and mountains may have got some “Maritime domain awareness” lessons from US Ambassador in Sri Lanka and other CIA and FBI operatives, to discover his latent interest in tropical islands, marine affairs, and deep dives in the ‘Indo-Pacific.’

The fantastic narrative now being crafted – based on pure alternative facts promoted by the Singapore Security Xpert is that: the IS Caliphate has proclaimed that now “South Asia is an IS Province”. Moreover, 70 percent Buddhist, (with 20 percent Hindus and Christians), Si Lanka, has been specially chosen as the ideal location for the new IS South Asia Provincial capital, with the re-constructed Ocean-front Chinese owed Shangri la five star hotel set to be named the Islamic Caliphate’s new Headquarters.  

3. Do Monotheists hate polytheists and atheists? 

It is reliably learned from our own redoubtable Singapore expert (shades of Arjuna Mahendran?) on IS narratives that Al Baghdadi hates multi-religious and multi-ethnic countries in general, and Sri Lanka in particular given its complicated multi-ethnic and multi-religious cultural mosaic and confused citizens, who are too hybrid, mixed, and hence messed up (both confused and confusing), and hence a massive Security Threat to monotheists and mono-theism. Also, there are those horrible apostate Sufi cults spread across the island, including whirring dervishes, that are doubly galling and to be eliminated.

4. When America invents a new Ocean, and Islamic State a new Province there may be trouble around the corner?

These narratives about new provinces and oceans are of course to entertain, distract and scare the shit out of traumatized Lankans who have presumably suspended disbelief, and abdicated ALL their critical thinking faculties at this time of national tragedy, so that  FBI and related Singaporean Xperts and SPIN doctors can craft a narrative to feed the petrified and hence doubly gullible natives of Banana Republic beset with a squabbling Prime Minister and President and a Cabinet of thieves– just as the Chagos Islanders, 60 years ago were terrified when US marines gassed their dogs and forcibly drove the Chogossians out of their Indian Ocean island home when the infamous Diego Garcia military base and CIA Black Site, now being green washed into a Marine Reserve in the Indian Ocean, was being set up.

5. How do you white-wash a CIA Black Site called Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean? You Green Wash it!

Since the UN’s highest court, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling that Chagos Islands must be de-colonized by United Kingdom and returned to Mauritius in February this year,  the sole purpose of the continued existence of Diego Garcia military base, the largest outside the US mainland, will be to protect Indian Ocean crustaceans after everyone has signed the Convention of Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES), also known as the Washington Convention in Colombo, come May 2019.

6. Marginalization of national expertise? Forget Foucault and the Cold War in the Indian Ocean

Sri Lankan experts, one and all, have been marginalized with the landing of the IS Caliphate in Paradise Lost, with droves of  random Intel and media experts to craft the narrative, amidst the tug o war between the puppet Prime Minister and the farmer President.  But, so, it is time that local and national Sri Lankan Intellects, I/NGO innocents, and experts get cracking with favorite geopolitical fantasies to explain and find motive for our Easter carnage. After all, anyone, including FBI, can set up a website and claim responsibility for the Easter Carnage now that WikiLeaks is down and Julian Asange safely locked up in UK… 

7. ‘Carrots and sticks’ to set up a military base in the Indian Ocean?

First you bomb the recalcitrant natives into submission and then the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), after fiddling around for 4 years drafting the puppet Prime Minister’s economic and security policies, and a (COMPACT for god knows what), comes along with a (fake) goodies bag (480 million blood $$$), to turn Lanka into a global transport and energy Hub aka. Military base to fight IS and prevent IS head honcho Al Bagdhadi divining in the Indian Ocean. Of course, Millennium Airlines Sri Lanka tours are already flying the friendly skies of Banana Republic that also launched a satellite called Raavan 1, with other defense contractors such as IWS Aviation , and so Lanka will soon be a tourist paradise again after the MCC has been granted all the lands it needs and access to all the data platforms it needs for turning Lanka into a global terrorism logistics hub. All this will of course enable protecting the global internets’ crucial Undersea Data Cables (UDCs), that strategic Lanka sits on.

To be continued.

    One more time. Please do not continue. This is not the time to show off your geopolitical expertise. It really dosen,t matter to the dead or the victims.What may matter is why there was a security / intelligence lapse and who are the Lankan politicians and bureaucrats behind this massacre. Unless you too are a proxy of these criminals then I cant see why you will continue with your alternate facts. Shut the F – – – – P.

    This time around the usual zero casualty, geopolitical analysis and other Lankan gimmicks will not work. Because there are 50 or so foreigners dead and respective countries will demand answers. There is enough intelligence prior to the tragedy pin pointing the locations,happened in day light with enough witnesses around (not the humanitarian mission without evidence). Also intelligent organizations such as FBI and interpol are already at ground zero.They have been monitoring Lankan activities before and after the tragedy. So the usual Lankan bull shit like dont know, ignorance, diaspora, US,Israel, Jews,capitalism,LTTE , port, oil , geopolitical analysis —-etc given by proxies will not satisfy countries who have lost their citizens. For Lankans 250 lives may not mean much but for foreigners every live of their citizen matter. And see for your self how NZ conducted it self as a nation and our criminals behaving (including public, politicians, media and the rest). So better not waste time with usual melodramas, commissions and reports.

      The writer should have fun letting his multiple alternate personalities such as Donstanley debate among themselves about Diego Garcia, Bondscam, Trumpland,MCC, and various other bugbears knocking about in his belfry.
      Please give us long-suffering CT denizens some peace please.
      NOT FUNNY!!!!

    K.Ganesh,
    Your analysis is plausible.
    Soon, Al Baghdadi will set up his HQ in Kattankudy by proxy- undetected of course.
    Our lotus eaters are concerned only with the looming presidential election – and, their futures afterwards.
    The Tourist Industry will muddle through.

    Al Bagdadi is one like James bond. If James bond dies, the Movie Series has to stop. Global Terrorism is wanted in the world. Other wise, Arms manufacturers go bankrupt and Al Bagdadi beomes a useless figure. In Sri lanka, Al Bagdadi’s salesman is Ranil and Sumanthiran is the monitoring MP who was very active even when they cooking up up the 51 day coup.
    I think, DAESH attacks in Europe is by bigger countries because, they needed to recruit Europena muslims. Once russia decimated ISIS, TRUMP wanted those DAESH people to be looked after what ever the way those countries wanted.
    Now, so many foreign experts and they should be intelligence agencies came, I am pretty sure, they will recommend some weapon systems to be bought. that is by the Dealers come behind them and there won’t be any connection (wink) between them.
    It is well known NATO/USA sabotage economies that do not listen to them. Another Avenue Sri lanka did not look into is how much money they printed and how is actually circulated. Because of drugs Sri lankan money went overseas. I think, with RUPEE issue of T bills those money came back. and we pay back in dollars. There was an article about that. that is companies are soled to different countries and those countries do out sourcing. Some how they know how to do it. Remember Malyasian PM had Sri lankan money. No one, I mean media, talked about it. I hear media is advertising for the Al Bagdadi too saying we are going to that and this actually when the govt doesnot know how they assumed it or what is going on.
    There is an article some where which says one US lady was staying in that Russian republic and was paying to MPs $ 250,000 per person for votes to go their way. Does it sounds like familier in Srilanka.
    What ever it is Al Bagdadi says, we are here to help you and see what you have done.

    Ganesh: You do not want to believe Prince siddhartha, Buddha had far more higher Grandure than that, walked on Lotuses. If you hve time, read about what einstein did and talked, What BOHR – Danish Hindushthani did and wrote. Then the Theoretical physics and quantum what ever all looks ridiculous and hilarious. You must think can that happen in this world.

    What Pabakaran could not provide, al Bagdadi is going to do. Ranil and the gang was sales man to both groups. so, what is wrong. It is minority rights. MCC (sahasa Abhiyoga Sansthawa) gives funds for those. I don’t know whether , next LGBTQs will explode or what they will do, walk naked in colombo. Watch for it.

    K. Ganesh has “More questions In The Aftermath Of The Easter Sunday Carnage”.
    We have a history of carnages and our politicians love them.
    Ganesh follows “The Socratic Method Of Inquiry”, by the way what the hell is it, poses the question
    {“1. How many foreign intelligence agencies does it take to screw on a light bulb?”}
    He lists a number of ‘intelligence agencies’.
    By the way Aussie Intel is still looking for the wreck of MH370. RAW on the amorous Ms Yeti foot-prints outside an Army camp up in Himalayas. Prof Rohan Gunaratne lost his memory after a mild shock on 08 January 2015.
    IS probably never heard of SL till someone enquired about vests, With wink wink nudge nudge they said “We contract/subcontract models wearing the vest”.
    .
    The answer to Ganesh Q 1 is: The number of bayonet bulb users is high.
    Even our own SIS do not know this.
    PS: To cut a long story short: Our politicians knowingly avoid addressing grievances in time.

    Tamils try to catch fish in trouble water. They know well Muslims did not support them to divide the country. Tamils are divided and will divide humanity in the name of cast? so bad thing to do. they will never learn.

    I can not understand what writer trying hard to emphasis in his essay. It is true that ISIS is about to be totally eliminated from their native land Syria & Iraq. They wanted to show US led west & Russia That they are still a force to be considered as far as Arab world’s matters is concern. Our local Muslims ISIS sympathizers were looking for a chance show ISIS leadership their loyalty.They took the Advantage of so called Yahapalana government’ very weakest policies on national security & organized these attacks. I think entire Muslims clergies & Muslims Community leaders including Islamic political parties leaderships knew about this brutal attacks and advised to keep some weapons like swords & light fire arms in case of the other communities reprisal like 1983 July riots. As such events took placed recently was not Isolated incidents. They were very well planed attacks I suppose. Selections of targets too were very planed ones. Due to US back Evangelical churches actions on conversion of poor Buddhists & Hindus to Christianity, relationship between Buddhists Monks & Catholics and Christian churches was not in good shapes like in the past. As such Muslims Mullas & the Other clergies might have thought risk of getting reprisal from Buddhists & Hindu communities in case of targeting Christians or catholic churches is minimal. But keep on collecting weapons like swords & small fir arms continue. That is what our security forces getting recovered now from Mosques & Muslims shops & houses. As such we can assume that entire Muslims Community except few individuals are sympathizers of ISIS organization & do whatever they can to ensure realization of leader Baghdady’s dreams. These attacks may not be last ones. Meny more to be followed I suppose. We should reduce Muslims economic soundness by boycotting their businesses. Otherwise we too may be indirect partners of these brutalities. . .

      “As such we can assume that entire Muslims Community except few individuals are sympathizers of ISIS organization”

      Foreign Intelligence tipped the Local Intelligence under the President’s control on the 4th April giving specific details about the attacks but NO Action taken by the President.

      By letter dated 11th April, Senior DIG informed the Security Chiefs of all Parliamentarians of the attacks. That means, ALL 225 MPS should have known of the attacks. What action did they take?

      It is Not only the President and the Security Establishment that failed but even the 225 MPs including the Former President who is the leader of the Opposition chose to ignore the warnings.

      Now would you say that ALL of them are “sympathizers of ISIS organization”?

      Don’t you know that several Muslim Organisations have warned the Authorities about the threat posed by the NTJ at least two years back. But, you want to “assume that entire Muslims Community except few individuals are sympathizers of ISIS organization”. What twisteverd and perverted logic you have.

        Muhandiram Yes It is said local Intelligence got information and top officials Ignored it. Yes we also heard about Muslim cabinet ministers covering up NTJ activities. Anyway these lapses of our officials can not hide sympathy of entire Muslims Community here toward ISIS and their desire to see ISIS and Saudi close friendship. As per very recent news It described Saudi top officials involvement in these attacks as well. Recent recovery of small fire arms & swords from Muslim;s houses & business places as well as in Mosques one can assume that entire Muslims community except for few Individuals were aware of attacks took placed & were preparing for defensive attacks in case of None believers reprisals. As such you can not white wash Muslims live among other communities all over the Island. They knew about these attacks well in advance & preparing for possible reprisal as well while wishing attackers all success.

          “Muslim cabinet ministers covering up NTJ activities”

          There is ONLY One former Minister, Hisbollah, who has been accused of intervening to get.one or more NTJ member/s released after the Wanathavillu incident. Don’t forget that the NTJ is from Kattankudy , the home town and base of Hisbollah. Perhaps, Hisbollah is a close relation of the NTJ terrorists or they are even his staunch supporters. Tell me, which politician will NOT intervene on behalf of his relation/s or supporters? When it is part of the normal conduct of a Sri Lankan politician to intervene on behalf of his relation/s or supporters, you want to blame the entire Muslim community for that. Let me Assure, the Muslim Community will NOT shed any tears for any Muslim Minister should he be found guilty of collusion with terrorists and given the Maximum Punishment under the Law.

          On the other hand, you Totally IGNORE the assistance provided by Minister Kabir Hashim’s Secretary to the CID which led to the arrest of those who vandalised the Buddha statues in Mawanella and which subsequently led the Police to the Wanathavillu secret hide out of the terrorists.

          Man, you add 2 and 2 and you get 22! What great logic you have.

          What is the source of your “very recent news” of “Saudi top officials involvement in these attacks.”?

          As for the “Recent recovery of small fire arms & swords from Muslim;s houses & business places as well as in Mosques”, can you say in how many places such items were found and how it compares with the total number of Muslim houses, business places as well as Mosques in the country as a whole before you point an accusing finger at the “entire Muslims community except for few Individuals”?

          If you Really Love the country, you should STOP spreading WILD Stories and Rumours at this Very Critical Time when the country NEEDS to Stand Together as ONE Nation.

    Now every one knows that these bombings will continue and foreign countries have warned. Every one knows that Muslim Ministers have indirectly given the blessings for these barbaric attacks. Moreover, there is a news item that former President Mahinda Rajapakse had allocated 200 acres of land for the establishment of a Muslim University which had later provoked on realizing the activities of the Hisbullah. Besides the explosion took place at Sangri-la Hotel where Gotabaya Rajapakse’s close aide Major General Kapila was the main Security Officer with a very high pay. Moreover, the activities of Rishard Badurdeen has also been exposed when clearing a section of the jungles of Wilpattu for Muslim settlement. The possibility that bridges around Colombo could be destroyed by these Islamic terrorists cannot be ruled out. Now when everything goes beyond control, Ranil Wickremasinghe has resquested to hand over Defence, law and order to him to handle it with a view to restore normalcy, but Maithripala Srisena refused it. It is common sense that with all these foreign experts, it is easier for Ranil Wickremasinghe to flush out the terrorists and restore normalcy. Again the President is violating the Constitution of the country. One ponders whether Maithripala Srisena is a snake under the grass. He does not seem to worry about the country. But it is surprising that Mahinda Rajapakse is handing over a report of the recent bombings unto the President M.Srisena. When taking everything into consideration, it appears that a coup is likely to be hatched by the Rajapaksas.

    Ganesh: you forgot one item in the plan ascribed to the US: make Ranil and Sumanthiran draft a new constitution to help promote US-neo conservative capitalism and separatism, in the guise of making the current one friendlier to diversity.

    One more important observation:
    Al Bagdhdhi,the alleged IS chief who was considered killed 4 years ago came back from his grave to congratulate the Sri Lankan terrorists that they have exceeded all his expectations in manslaughter of innocent civilians. His video was apparently fine tuned in a studio equipped with Hollywood film technology.
    Another observation:
    The terrorist Zahran was cordially treated and given land to build his place of worship to uphold his democratic religious rights even after the alert was presented with evidence that he was a follower of IS by the Highest Islamic religious organisation in this country.

    According to Lankans US/CIA are responsible and were behind, in then one of their citizen Gothabaya forcibly shutting down a heritage Sufi site and coordinating with BBS in burning mosques and attacking churches, It is US who told MS to not to disclose intelligence tips they provided and not to take any actions. Foreigners who gave information and at the same time told Lankans strictly to ignore it so that their citizens too will be murdered. It was Japan who gave aid after Tsunami instructed MR to transfer that to his personal Funds. It was US behind last year coup staged by MS in bringing MR . I am getting light headed and dizzy. What more to come ?????????

    Bagdhaadhee may not know there is a place called Sri Lanka. The explosions on Easter was probably Sri Lankan home grown extremism with ISIS ideology. The violent hatred may have been the result out of Sri Lankan attitude towards unfortunate minority denominations

    The Socratic Method Of Inquiry used here by K Ganesh has resulted in the obvious. The blood in the ‘lighter vein’ is blue, green or wrapped in a red…….Oh what that thing that MR wears?
    The resulting comments are imaginations and in due course taken by the gullible as facts. This feeds the rumour mill which churns out violence.
    Should we stop this?
