Past Year Marked Important Democratic Gains In Several Countries Including Sri Lanka: John Kerry

“The past year also marked important democratic gains in such countries as Nigeria, Burma, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela” says the US Secretary of State, John Kerry in his Op-Ed “Building on 2015 as We Look Ahead”

John Kerry

We publish below the Op-Ed in full;

One reason for the remarkable record of the New England Patriots is the team’s single-minded focus on the next game. Managing world affairs requires the same concentration on future challenges, for past accomplishments provide no guarantee of continued success. They can, however, lend confidence that, with the right preparation and effort, positive results will follow.

As one year gives way to the next, international leaders have an opportunity to build on several major achievements of 2015.

Of these, none is more important than the recent global agreement in Paris to prevent the most harmful impacts of climate change. Earlier negotiating efforts had failed because of divisions between industrialized and developing nations. By reaching out to China, the world’s leading emitter of greenhouse gases, and by emphasizing the incredible economic potential of clean energy technology, we were able to secure an agreement that sends the right message to all. We have a shared responsibility now to sustain the momentum generated in Paris, so that the targets established there are considered not a ceiling on what we can accomplish, but rather the platform upon which we can make further gains.

In July, the United States and our negotiating partners agreed with Iran on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a blueprint for blocking all of Iran’s potential pathways to a nuclear weapon. As it agreed to do, Iran has since begun dismantling critical elements of its nuclear facilities and, on December 28, shipped a major portion of its enriched uranium out of the country. That shipment more than triples our previous timeline of two to three months for Iran to acquire enough weapons-grade uranium for one weapon, and is an important piece of the technical equation that ensures an eventual breakout time of at least one year by implementation day. We must continue to monitor implementation of this agreement closely to ensure that the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran is removed as a threat to Middle East security and global peace.

In August, I had the privilege of traveling to Havana to raise the American flag above our embassy for the first time in 54 years. President Obama’s bold decision to normalize diplomatic ties with Cuba reflects both our own national interests and our desire to help the citizens of that country live in a more open and prosperous society. As I walked through the streets of Old Havana, I felt more strongly than ever that we should not allow our continued differences with the Cuban regime to prevent closer engagement with the Cuban people.

In October, after seven years of negotiation, the United States joined eleven other nations along the Pacific Rim in signing and sending to Congress the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement that will ensure heightened labor and environmental standards in 40 percent of the global economy. The TPP will support American prosperity by lowering barriers to our exports and helping to level the commercial playing field for our workers and entrepreneurs.

A year ago, some public health professionals were estimating that as many as one million people would die before the outbreak of the Ebola virus was brought under control. Instead, the United States joined with partners in the international community, and with strong local partners in West Africa, to educate people about the virus and contain its spread, thus spelling the difference between death and life for hundreds of thousands of people.

The past year also marked important democratic gains in such countries as Nigeria, Burma, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela. With U.S. help, Colombia moved closer to ending the world’s longest-running civil war. At the UN, countries from across the globe agreed on a 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — setting important goals in child nutrition, gender equity, education, poverty, and health.

Meanwhile, the conflict in Syria, the refugee crisis it has spawned, and the violent extremism to which it has contributed, remain a foremost challenge to us all. America’s strategy is three-fold. First, we have intensified our campaign — through the 65-member international coalition we have mobilized — to defeat the terrorist group known as ISIL or Daesh. Just this week, Iraqi forces, with coalition support, retook the provincial capital of Ramadi, further reducing the area controlled by the terrorists. Our efforts are directed both at Daesh’s core networks in Syria and Iraq and at strangling attempts by the terrorists to establish branches or inspire attacks elsewhere — including the United States. Second, we are working with partners to prevent violence in the Middle East from spreading and to care for refugees and other victims. Third, we have launched a renewed diplomatic initiative to de-escalate the conflict in Syria, encourage a political transition, and isolate the terrorists. This initiative has, for the first time, brought all the major international players together while providing a timetable for negotiations between the responsible opposition and Syria’s government.

The obstacles to peace in Syria remain daunting, but the need for a settlement is compelling, and the more progress we make toward that goal, the easier it will be to mount a truly sustained and unified effort against Daesh — the foremost embodiment of evil our generation has known, and a foe we are absolutely determined to defeat.

Despite turbulence and tragedy, the past year has provided fresh hope that the world community can come together and tackle even the hardest problems. That is good, because the demands of leadership are relentless and, as one calendar is replaced by the next, we must prepare — and, indeed, we are preparing — for the new tests that await.

          LEARN HOW ALL AGENDAS CONNECT TO AGENDA 21; TRANSFORMING THE WORLD FOR COMPLETE CONTROL
          https://youtu.be/dVDMlem1M8I

          This video will explain what these bastards in the US/UK/UN/NATO system is doing to the humanity.

          If anyone is interested saving your own family and securing them a safe future….Well, the Kerry, Obama, Cameron and all the other bastards they call themselves as the “First World/ International community” who are actually evil scumbags planning to kill us all.

          Sri lankan regime, be it UNP or SLFP is 100% aligned to that system of evil and fully committed in implementing Jewish IMF/World Bank imposed evils on the local population.

          To your amazement, the bloody bankers who are evil JEWS who running the Zionist system created the 30 years ethnic war and funded the both sides to kill each other. Now, once that is over, they are funding their proxies who are the Sinhala Nationalist forces (MAhinda/Gota/JHU/BBS/SR etc..etc) to create more wars with the other groups, like the Muslims.

          The Military Industrial Complex in US/UK needs war to keep their industry runnng and then also to reduce the populace of the world with their AGENDA 21, backed by the UN.

          I think that Sirisena and Ranil must watch this as their are kept in the highest position by these evil Jews as their puppets to destroy SL of its populace. They are targeting our natural resources. Most of all our abundance of water resource.

          Please watch and know that all our internal bickering on the lines of race and religion is a plot by these bastards to make fight each other to make their way for AGENDA 21 ( to kill billions of people who are non Jews)

        Guys!!
        If i tell you that i f**ked your wife, would you rush to hate your wife? This is just like that. Kerry can say a lot of things… but we should be mindful to know what and why really Raja had to go home.

        It was us ‘the Jahamanay’, who did it. Not US not China.
        Don’t get fooled by these so called statements by the USA!

          How these (US/UK) Jewish bastards killed people in villages in the South America is highlighted in this video.

          Mahinda Rajapakse is a Zionist trained Dictator who implemented the same pattern of and system of atrocity the Jews used to practice on the non-Jewish world population of the world.

          How they trained the Dictators to become corrupt rulers with Militias protecting them and killing anyone who oppose them… its the signatures of the Jewish Zionist system that which is functioning in almost all the Western (Jewish bank ruled) countries and systems.

      These filthy bastards (US/British Jewish linked Politicians)are mass murdering millions of human beings for centuries and they are at the top of standardizing whats right and what’s wrong????

      Go and learn some history about how the Jews got into the world power systems and launched their Talmudic evil policies in killing NON-JEWS….

      And we have in Sri Lanka their proxies like the Sinhala Only leadership that was functioning from the time of fake independence (we are still the slaves of the white skinned Jews who are running the Money of the world) we got from the Jewish British, are still fomenting their evil planned racist voilence on the population.

      The video below will give you a glimpse of what these Jewish bastards are doing to the world with their Big Money, Big Corporations to wipe out the world’s non-Jewish population…..spoken by a guy who worked under their evil projects…. there’s altruistic dimention to his exposure of some of the facts he discusses openly about…..

      Raja was defeated by they themselves and not by Tamils or any one else. UNP won, not because UNP was popular it was more or a rejection vote to Raja.

            What about the 1 million young voters that just started with their voter rights – having the social media access.

            What about those who vehementely went against Raja and thugs under the lead of the late most respectable lanken of the recent days- Sobitha thero together with diverse social organisations – that sought only justice

            If you are in the view that it was minority – (tamils and muslims) – are they not srilankens ? that should have the same voter rights ? Why to differenciate it this way is my greater question.
            Having living on the west, I know Germany and other european nations, allow the same voter rights to those became migrants to those countries – finally becoming the citizen rights of each states

              sama,
              Before you come up with conclusions, you should go through the voting pattern analysis of each district of the 2015 election. Check southern/central/eastern districts where Tamils and Muslims live for MS and MR’s raw voting numbers.
              Also keep in mind, a good % of the young who have social media access are also Tamils and Muslims. These groups have a greater interest getting involved in election processes because they think they are treated differently than the majority Sinhalese.

              You say;
              “If you are in the view that it was minority – (tamils and muslims) – are they not srilankens ? that should have the same voter rights ? Why to differenciate it this way is my greater question. “

              Are you intellectually challenged? Who said Tamils and Sinhalese are not Sri Lankans? It is your distorted mind that concluded that. Who talked about voter rights? it is you who are writing nonsense. Use your god given brain before asking a stupid “greater” question! Analyse election results as I said above and get back to me without showing your intellectual handicap.

                Entire lanka including former parliamentarians, even cabinet ministers were fed up of Rajapakshes.
                They all hated the situation but they were all like being caught by devil to tha ttime. Today, Dayasiri alone expresses it nicely as no other would do.

                  Do a real analysis using the voting patterns of Sinhalese and Tamils/Muslims of each district and get back to me. If you do not have the brain to do so stop writing trash.

            Not many would hardly agree with you even today.

            You have always been NONSENCE.
            Either you need to have MRS checked or try yourself to see where you the ilk went wrong. Alone your qualification obtained from ALMA MATER Pera will never be sufficient.

            See, even today, MR led men and women are trying to block the investigation of disappearence of Cartoonist Eknaligoda. If asked MR focusely, he as usual makes every effort to mislead the questioners. He has always been like that… not answering the way CURRENT president, PM or any other politicians would do. No matter entire world is looking at him, he has no shame to visit prisoners publicly. As if he is about to train on that – to face it in real, no longer his sons will be convicted to stay in prisons for sure.

              SJ,
              I doubt your Pera Alma mater claim is genuine. Why I say this, is if you read your response again, “Not many would hardly agree with you even today” But give no explanation at all! (is it because I say so???) That is not what Peradeniya was teaching it’s students.

              Also you seem to have learnt nothing about real life. Why? You say;
              “He has always been like that… not answering the way CURRENT president, PM or any other politicians would do.”
              You seem to have so much naive faith on the current politicians while some one with life experience knows that no politician will be honest and can be trusted!
              Good luck to you Sir.

                Man Mr Nonsence – I am not naive, but I compare it. Even if your brain cells seem to be lagged by any kind of prions or the like that caused cows to become mad cow, I do feel, the current DUO achieved it within the short period of time what MR or other leaders failed to do within the short period given to them. Here I refer to the amendments made to the prevailing constitution. Those who laughed at the kind of AMDs have to hide their tails behind and stay mum before them while letting the appointed commissions to do the due. Having listend to Young BLOOD politician – Ajith Perera in Satana (Sirasa) y day – how how credible his statements are compared to those of the dogy characters like Mahindananada or the like – I have a hope today s new UNP MPs/Dpty Ministers do their job as much as they can. They just want to see it right always – this has nothing to do with my naivity, I do compare it them with their counterparts in Germany, UK or few other european countries where I roam for my duties.
                Mr. Nonsense, please never be like being caught your KAPUWATH NILA KAPUWATH KOLA feeling – the feature that average lanken voters keep them with – not caring any values but being belong to party politics. If we the nation as a whole need to raise the head, we each of us have to do our job properly. Just leave the man who gave a life to the criminals – but support the any good ones that work diehard to see a change. Then only, you can feel okay at the end of the day. Good luck with your hanamiti thoughts.

    That is a long list. It might be true that American foreign policy achieved something in 2015. Some of them came from continuation of previous years’ building up. Paris agreement is pure 2015 achievement. That is a massive one too. Iran deal would open up a path a comprehensive Middle East agreement. In recent years Syria policy still dragging behind. Russia is there, now. There is still chance Assad leaves his way to a democratic government. Paris murders is a boost for ISIS supporters.

    In the past, the Lankawe’s regime change was tied to Burma’s success in kind. Now State Secretary Kerry has compared with Nigeria and Venezuela too. This eliminate the Kind comparison with Burma. It appears like it is a regime change only changing head, but not the body of the regime. Almost all minsters have come back other than the Royal family. This Regime change yet to offer anything concrete. The New Royals have given an open promise to save Old Royals in UNHRC. They worked hard at UNHRC to neutralize the international effort to give any justice to Tamils. This is a big question if the New Royal government is not willing to punish the Old Royals, how much of this change is real? The regime change has taken palace by dividing the TNA. From G.G’s time Tamils have been voting unitedly to one party. For the first time from 1948, that faces a threat. That is a long list.

This eliminates the “Kind” comparison with Burma. Burma fell into military dictator ship. That was a turn the people of Burma did not wanted. Lankawe’s dictatorship started tampering the Tamils representation through election rules when Don Stephen disenfranchised Tamils, without changing the constitution or without a referendum. Lankawe’s regime appears like it is a regime change only changing head, but not the body of the regime. Almost all minsters have come back other than the Royal family. Old Royal family is not the only dictator family elected in Lankawe with a General election or EP election. This Regime change is yet to produce anything concrete. The New Royals have given an open promise to save Old Royals to save then in UNHRC. The promise Ranil gave to Old King on the Jan,8th 2015 at Temple Tree House is not connected to the fear of losing the elections in the South. Ranil believes that the Old King saved the country so there is an obligation to the country to save him in turn. Ranil worked hard at UNHRC to neutralize the international effort to give any justice to Tamils. Then this is a big question if the New Royal government is not willing to punish the Old Royals, how much of this change is real? The regime change has taken in place by dividing the TNA. From G.G’s time, Tamils have been voting unitedly to one party. For the first time from 1948, that is facing a threat. In Lnakawe’s case America might have already lost the soft power to influence the path of the government. If Lankawe open their hands to listen America, Secretary Kerry has no tool to deal with it. It is same like when Manmohan Singh said “When we tell Lankawe they are not listing to us; what we can do for that?” So it looks like the split of TNA and the proposal to new a constitution with election procedures change is that America did the same thing in Lankawe when the farmer cut the golden goose in search of golden eggs. The farmer got the one last egg. Is that amount enough for the farmer to call he was success?

    Now we are in the US camp with Venezuela..How cool is that..

    May God bless Sirisena.

    Batalanda has already been getting blessings from the Anglican Bishop for 5 years on a daily basis since Nanthikadal

      Which Nanthikadal? “5 years on a daily basis since Nanthikadal”. Didn’t Malcolm Ranjit gave that to Old King for 6 years?

      Why Anglican Bishop? Guruvayur temple door didn’t give problem like Thirupathi door; Did it too? Anyway,Thiruppathi door can be broke opened to Ranil Mahata’s prayer if he is not hide and seek.

      “Now we are in the US camp with Venezuela..How cool is that.” Really very cool. The first certificate to Lankawe, from the time Lala Wild animals invaded it, certifying that “Lala Wild animals too can be rehabilitated”.

      Its is lot of differences between Venezuela and lanka. Venezuelans eat free wheat exporting natural oil to America. They bash America only as the prayer to the god who blessed them the American wheat. Sri Lankan import free rice from moon, export freshly squeezed out upcountry Tamils’ blood to Iran and Russia. They bash Tamils only to ensure Sinhala Intellectuals politicians to win the next election.

      The New World country Venezuela is there only for few centuries. But still has seen few ups and downs. We the Lankans, the Lala wild life, never went up or down for 2500 years. We couldn’t go down, because there nothing below hell.As Mahanayakes only eat the cooked chicken, they never catch one from the rooftop and cook on their own) never did know to show the the path, to climb up to the Vaikundam, to the Sinhala Intellectuals.

        Mallayuran,

        Interesting. Does the Vellala TNA represent the Up Country Blood Bank, as you call it?.

        Because Vellala Sambandan lead a high powered team for discussions with the Wahabi Leaders of the SLMC last week.

        But there was no Lankans of Indian Origin there..

        Also looking at the delegation,I got the feeling that Sambandan has done a U turn from his previous stand and the public declaration.. “Just Leave the Muslims to me” when Rajapaksa wanted to do a deal soon after Nanthikadal .

        Is Mano Ganesahn who is part of the new Constitution drafting committee, the only rep of the Blood Bank?.

        Your Separate North obviously therefore will be out of bounds for them

        Is there someone who represents them in the Diaspora?.

        Is it the TNGT , or anyone there that we don’t know of, because GTF is now totally UNP, after the MOU in London which was stitched up by Suren, Solheim & Mangalan on the orders of Batalanada Ranil.

        Is this Blood Bank going to be lumped with our Dalits, some of whom have no regular income even let alone a place to live.

        Or Ganeshan going to carve out a separate zone for them in the new Constitution , with the same rights as the Vellalas?..

          I think Sampanthan is not a good representative for Upcountry Tamils, but you are best one because you have already become the best representative of the NorthEast Dalits, against(and Instead) of Vellala Sampanthan.

          Leave that all aside, what made you to thinks Sinhala Buddhist are higher Caste than the Nigerian or Venezuelan? How high are you caste is than them? Why is it pricking to you when Sec.Kerry said that Nigeria, Venezuela, Virathu Thero’s country and Lankawe are returning to democracy? (Please understand the question, Why is it pricking to you? I am not the one proposed that Lankawe is returning to democracy, That is only Secretary Kerry- I do not believe that- You would agree that can not happen under Batalanda Anglican Ranil).

          I do not understand why are you saying this? “Is this Blood Bank going to be lumped with our Dalits, some of whom have no regular income even let alone a place to live.” Do you mean I disenfranchised them? Mano Ganesan is not a Medamulana home aide like Dougee. He has his own opinion, I have mine; I am not controlled by him, neither he is controlled by him.

          “Is Mano Ganesahn who is part of the new Constitution drafting committee, the only rep of the Blood Bank?.” For your information, as you have poor knowledge of Colombo, Mano Ganesan is a Karuvakaddu Hindutva MP. not an upcountry-Dalit-Anglican. Just as Radhika is representing the Medamulana Royal family, he is representing Western interest in Lankawe. Anyway, please I am not the one appointed them to the Constitution drafting committee, it is the New King Saddhatissa. Further don’t worry too much about having lost BBS Thero Hakeem and BBS Thero Rishad from the Medamulana Royal team. Those two Caliphs will come back and join Dutugemunu, the Caliph of Bahrain, as soon as he win any election. Those two Thero are moulded by Medamulana King.

          Anyway, whether Sampanthan is representing Upcountry or you are representing Upcountry, could you import your rice from America as GSP+ cloths for Rice, instead of from moon?

          Sumanae I want to ask a stupid question from you. Util when, you think can keep dividing the Tamils with all your inventive divisions of Dalits and Upcountry and Muslims and Anglican and North-East…… Do you still think any Tamils, other than your co-Sinhala Intellectuals, is believing your creative writing?

            Mallliyuran,

            How can you not like the Sinhala Intellectuals. All of them I have come to know through CT are sucking on Uncle K’s Rump steaks as you called it.

            Look at that list which comes on every now and then with so many Intellectual autographs, asking the West to punish our Dalits for various deeds ranging from Liberating the Nation, to Killing Pirahaparan and begging the UN to intervene to give Vellalas their Homeland.

            What more can they do..

            BTW ,those FF intellectuals have gone cold Turkey after Bodhi Sira gave Batalanda the wheel of the Yahpalanaya.

            And guess what,

            Bodhi Sira was boasting yesterday that he has done sooo much for the inhabitants and went to visit the Mahanayakayas in Kandy accompanied by UNP Kirra,

            And promised the Mahanaayakayas that he is going to do more for the Dalits to lift their living standards this year.

            Mahanayakayas were sooo happy and probably tied the Pirth Nule on Bodhi Sira.

            Obviously these Mahanayakayas don’t read the latest news .

            Sira probably told the Mahanayakayas that Ada Derana insulted the whole Sinhala Buddhist culture and the Sinhala Buddhist Nation by calling him Paka.

            But Sira most probably didn’t tell them about that Colombo Chick throwing her Bra at Englesi Ass,

            Neither did he tell anything abut the Air Force Chief’s daughter smooching the Spaniard in public and on stage,

            Your Vellala mate Sambandan says the Govt should consult the TNA and the TNA only when they build the Hybrid Court and import the Judges, according to the agreement with the GTF.

            That is obviously a pre emptive attack on the TPC to destroy any chances of them having any input to the Hybrid Court.

            Sambandan probably briefed Caliph Hakeem before hand, at the big ass summit which was held a couple of days ago.

            However Caliph Hakeem can’t do anything to keep fellow Caliph Baththa out, because the latter is more powerful than any of the Ministers in the Yahapalana Cabinet.

              Sumane!

              I may not be a follower, but still a hindu. So there is no duality in my path, in my thinking and in my living. It is, neither like nor not like! “How can you not like the Sinhala Intellectuals. “ In the path I go, I may use one or two words to explain an idea. Those words, in those circumstances, contexted only for those circumstances, only like a metaphor, but not the actual representation.

              They can be on their path, just the way we are ours. We may have gone to the same places, where they too go,sometimes. It is like the victim and the thief meeting each other at the same court. We are no revenge seekers, neither partners in any looting or raping. We seek only justice. That is the freedom from oppression. We part, at that junction, apart from each other. It is, neither like nor not like!

    USA in period of decline since specially 2008 Wall Street which collapse of Financial and Stock Market’ that set the defeated of War against Iraq and Afgestain 2010 they brought with it “new democracy of US” only flowering of Constitutional illusions of democracy, but a completed shattering of these illusions to Sri lanka, Burma, Nigeria and Venezuela.

    Well, Sri lanka is concern after political coup d’état of 2015 January 9th President election funded by US-CIA and Indian -RAW ,which is to be convened ,clearly puts an end to period of peaceful after end of war defeated LTTE terrorist by MR ruling alliance in 2009 May.

    MR alliance has 2009 May that start peaceful cohabitation between Democracy of majority and Minority Tamils and Muslims in of popular representation and ushers in a new era in development and democracy of new sustainability of capitalist(bourgeois) revolution.

    At a movement like present after one year past-2015 January a comparison between MR led revolution and counter-revolution of outfits organization by US ,Indian and UNP-of Ranil.W.. CBK of Neo-Liberal SLFP,s & MS the puppet between the period of revolutionary onslaught 2015 January and that of counter-revolutionary playing with ‘New constitution’, ‘War crimes’ and ‘Corruptions’ that suggests, itself as a matter of course.

    John Kerry of US such comparison is implicit in any attempt to define a political line of new hegemonies of US for immediate future of US new Global politics- democracy.

    The US of so-called democracy of liberal press chants, howls and rants about of US-Kerry version of Global hegemony. These “revolutionary illusions” and “positive constitutional” work in Sri lanka is the keynote present day of local UNP political road map not going be successful in an Island.

    Needless to say this “November revolutionary” shout by MS junta regime in Sri lanak that illusionary will totally collapsed in near future.

      MR cronies now start to cry foul. . What you say here is disgraced to all Sri Lankan voters. Remember one thing , when you people lick MR’s left overs, we have silently fought for almost 10 years to end his authoritarian rule without anyone help. It was not CIA or Raw who did it. It was all genuine Sri Lankan youths. Prove your allegation without any mud slinging for January 08 revolution. You all are corrupted MR supporters now suffering from FCID Phobia.

      Not from the usual end…
      Idiots even today laugh while others enjoy the chasing away innerly.
      In a country good and bad is mixed in their basic thoughts, what talks about the good governance… they each interpret that in their way.. meaning very subjectively. I find today it is more fairness and justice is seen than before the days of Raja.
      Even Hirunika thought campaigned and got elected pro UNP, she is being investigated while Buurwanse and Gombanpila are on their usual tone to paint it in favour of today opposition.

      I happened to hear former Thug king – socalled modern day King of the nation, saying that nobody can avoid going against the rulers- according to him they are no able people – could well be with teh virulent mentality he would no tsee it right let alone today.

    Uncle Kerry is sooo happy about Batalanda and Bodhi Sira bending over to him to make us a Venezuela…

    And the Uncle reckons we have gained soooo much in democracy.

    May be Uncle Kerry thinks that Yahapalanaya is feeding our Dalits so well that they also only want democracy now..

    But the latest Economic figures tell another story.

    Yapalana Mahendran is tightening the screw on even the Banks to raise the deposit ratio and force the Banks to raise the interest rates.

    Consumer price index has reached its highest in November, to make even the Elite feel heart burn, when they buy Bacon and Turkey in the New Year.

    Not a cent has been invested in Infrastructure since Yahapala Birth in January this year.

    Growth rate for the year will be struggling to make 5 and a half percent.

    Treasury Bills are earning only 7,5 % after the Singaporean gave Son in Law 12.95 %.

    Galleon Accountant is still telling fibs that growth rate will be 7.5 % for the year and he can do even better in the future..

    May be he wants to make UNP Wahabi, Kabir looks bad when he takes over in January.

    Happy and Prosperous New Year to all Yahapalana suckers…

      @KA Sumanasekera

      But as Batalanda Man, Polonnaruwa Man and now Uncle John Kerry will tell us, 5% is better than 8%

      Oh., and welcome to a new world of Lo-Speed Internet, courtesy of Yahapalanaya. Apparently like 5%, Lo-Speed Internet is better than Hi-Speed !

      Happy New Year to All !!!

      It should be Happy Year Ending.

      We know how the year turned out to be however we do not know for sure how the new year is going to be.

      Happy and Prosperous New Year to all MR’s b***s carriers.

      Happy and Prosperous New Year to rest of the people.

    Hmm.. food for thought. With the possible impending demise of NBI, what will happen to Google’s Project Loon ?

    Will Uncle John Kerry step in and kick a few Good Governance Rumps for disturbing American Free Enterprise in Sri Lanka ? Or is there a bigger story in the background ?

    Perhaps a mysterious company wishes to get in on the action and is willing to grease a few palms in order to “help our infrastructure’

    Rumors.. rumors…

      HaHahaaa

      Uncle K won’t distribute Rump steak that easily.

      If he does, it will be Round Steaks cut a bit thicker than normal .

      But our Elite wouldn’t know the difference anyway.

      Could it be a Optic Fibre Network just for the North.

      Uncle K will be uncomfortable giving it to the East if Baththudeen clan grab hold of it, after the Hybrid Court finish its business and Mano Ganeshan drafted new Constitution kicks in.

    Some western powers continue to treat countries such as Sri Lanka as their backyard. They are very concerned about what’s going on, issue warnings, growl, groan, frown upon, give vague threats and express concerns.

    Alas… for some of spineless journalists they are the best stories to harp on!!!

    The reason, I believe, for this attitude is our failure to engage with and criticize these characters. There should be some protocol the country’s leaders need to put in place.
