SOFA/VFA: A Worrying Scenario

By Ameer Ali

Dr. Ameer Ali

An unrestrained communal animosity towards ethnic and religious minorities, anchored in mythology and historical half-truths, and popularised by sections of the Buddhist clergy and a sectarian media have combined to drive Sri Lanka to a point where the future survival of this plural polity as an independent sovereign state with a viable economy has become increasingly uncertain. Successive cycles of communal violence, an unaffordable and unthoughtfully engaged lengthy civil war, and lately, an act of unprecedented terrorism – possibly with international connections, have shattered the historic legacy and image of this country as a nation of highly talented, literate, tolerant and joyous people with a mature democratic system of governance. By all account, Sri Lanka is now a wounded nation and its wounds are self-inflicted. The situation has worsened so badly over the last three decades that the country has become alarmingly vulnerable to sinister manipulations by foreign powers. Two regional hegemons, China and India have already entrenched themselves in the foreign policy of this country, and a third and the most dangerous international bully is now knocking at the door seeking entry. If anyone wants expert advice on how to ruin a wealthy and peaceful country in so short a time let them ask Sri Lankan politicians.  

The proposed Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) or Visiting Forces Agreement (VFO) with the US marks the culmination of a trend that set in in the aftermath of the civil war, towards capitulating to the whims of foreign powers. SOFA/VFO, if signed and concluded, will be the thin end of the American wedge. With the unavoidable presence of American boots on the ground, which the Defence Secretary is powerless to prevent, Sri Lankan governments can say good bye to its sovereignty and territorial ownership over the whole island. The real cost of the civil war is coming to light only now and in a most startling and dangerous fashion.

Where are the so called patriotic monks and their political supporters who were ready to fast unto death and threatening to unleash unprecedented violence island wide, until one minister and two governors, all Muslims, were removed from their positions, because of allegations not yet proved at the courts of law? Will they repeat their exercise now to prevent at least part of the country from becoming another Okinawa or Guam under the US?   

The British East India Company was able to conquer the whole of India, because of disunity amongst Indian rulers, princes and chiefs. Similarly, a communally disunited Sri Lanka will succumb to the same fate to a new strategic power game played among three players, two regional and one global. 

The root cause of the nation’s malaise is its ethnic and religious disunity. Independence from colonialism failed to build a nation of Sri Lankans. Politicians of all hue, excluding the leftists, talked about unity in diversity but never worked towards achieving that unity but they actually exacerbated the divisions to capture or remain in political power. For over fifty years it was Sinhalese and Muslims versus Tamils, now it is Sinhalese and Tamils versus Muslims, and tomorrow may be Tamils and Muslims versus Sinhalese.  After the civil war however, the cry, “Sri Lanka is only for Buddhists”, has become louder and louder, and when knowledgeable, fearless and rational Buddhists dare to challenge that notion they are being ostracised with fatwas of excommunication from myopic dignitaries. Underlying this supremacist cry is a deliberate exclusion of other communities from being part of a national family. If that is the intention then the Buddhist supremacists should not accuse the excluded for being unpatriotic.  No wonder that one of these prelates even wanted a Hitler to come to power, perhaps with a ‘final solution’ to solve the communal issue.  Lately, one top level monk wanted the Muslims be stoned to death. It appears that these hawkish preachers of hate in the name of Buddhism would prefer their worshippers live as slaves to foreigners rather than as equal partners with dignity within a family of indigenised and diverse communities. In spite of all this hate mongering, it is shocking that none of the major political parties and their leaders are prepared to condemn this outrage publicly and demand action against these elements. Is this unholy silence tactical or a sign of endorsement?

With US naval presence under SOFA/VFA, Sri Lanka cannot remain aloof from a triangular geostrategic cold war in the Indian Ocean. Accidents can turn a cold war into a hot one. US is a wounded empire and with its neo-con dominated national security state, with hawkish ideologues like Pompeo and Bolton, is wanting to reassert itself as the world super hegemon. Regime change is the name of its game and to achieve that objective it will resort to instigate even terrorism.  Having failed to change the regime in Syria it is now turning to screw Iran. The fact that the imperialist ambitions of this super power remains the root cause of much of today’s political and economic turbulence, receives little reference in discussions and analyses of comprador intellectuals and experts who flock to the world fora and give media interviews. Max Blumenthal, one of the daring journalists who talk fearlessly in front of power, captures the essence of this root cause in the following words: “Through covert operations and overt invasions, America’s national security state had destabilised entire regions, from the Levant to North Africa, unleashed migration crisis of unprecedented proportions onto Europe and spurred an inevitable right-wing backlash that was unravelling the neoliberal consensus they sought to protect.” (The Management of Savagery, London & New York: Verso, 2019, p. 303)          

It is in this context that one is prompted to ask the question whether the Easter massacre was just the joint handy-work of home grown jihadists and ISIS only, or, mayhem engineered and executed by even more powerful and sinister game players. Because, ISIS is no more an arch enemy of US as once thought to be, but a friend of convenience in the fight against Assad. ISIS lost its territory and caliphate not because of US bombing but because of Russian and Syrian joint attacks. These jihadists are now reported to be fighting along with American backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) with weapons and resources supplied by US’ eternal friend Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies. In fact, Blumenthal quotes Thomas Friedman, a neo-con author and journalist, writing for New York Times and advising Washington against defeating ISIS but to “harness that group to bleed Russia, Iran and the Syrian government”. Isn’t an enemy’s enemy a friend? How deep and extensive the current investigation into the Easter massacre will go is not clear. However, whether there was an American-Saudi connection must be explored.  Do Sri Lankan investigators have the resources and capacity to do this?

The timing of SOFA/VFA deal is also significant. The country is about to face a Presidential as well as Parliamentary elections soon. Having watched the increasing prospect of a pro-Chinese Rajapakse regime coming back to the helm, US would like to conclude the deal while pro-American Wickremesinghe still heads a shaky government.  The fact that Pompeo himself will be coming to negotiate the deal shows the importance US attaches in gaining a foothold in Sri Lanka. What will UNP and its leader get in return from Pompeo? An assurance to continue with the status quo? Only time will tell. Whether sooner or later, the presence of US boots on Sri Lankan soil presents a worrying scenario.

    SL by courting the Chinese has given raise to the Americans and Indians to exert their dominance.
    If only We the Sri Lankan’s didn’t fight among ourselves, we could have put all our efforts in building a a UNITED Prosperous country, we would not have been in the current situation

      Thanks for a succinct article.

      This is what the Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhists” have achieved since independence, by maintaining hegemony and prostrating to imbecilic Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” monks. Sri Lanka needs a Kamal Ataturk to clean up the vermins.

      The desire to dominate was there much before China entered the picture.
      Remember the China Bay tank farm lease bid under JRJ in 1980 torpedoed by Indira Gandhi.
      China is only an excuse. US and India know that China has no military designs on Sri Lanka and that any such plan is not feasible in the near future.

        SJ, China has no military designs on Sri Lanka. Do you think US and India has. Any of these three can simply piss and SL will get drowned!
        .
        The military designs of China are focused ‘elsewhere’. India is trying to counterbalance that in partnership with US. Don’t tell me that you don’t know that.

          Can you announce where China’s military designs are focussed.
          Donald Trump may be more interested than Modi to know.
          BTW
          Both India and US have demonstrated their interest in military presence not long ago.

        Don’t worry nothing will happen to the armed forces as they have experience and knowledge where to hide themselves. Obviously behind their women folks back.

        Now the situation is frightening.
        Since the stupid VP is no longer alive who is going to fight the invading forces, Americans, Chinese, Saudis, Qataries, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Caliphas, Rohingyas, RSS, VHS, Hindutvas, ….?

      The NAM certainly helped to defended the independence of the Third World, at least until the resurgence of neo-colonialism in the late 1970s.
      The Peace Zone idea never materialized.
      *
      Why don’t we share the experience of people who have experiences US bases, like the Philippines for example. Even Japan for that matter.
      BTW, the CIA has an office here and the FBI is also operating here.

      justice,
      .
      US having a base here, does not mean sharing their expertise. After the base is established, consider the entire area is a mini-USA with everything happening top-secret. No access to our journalists, forces, police or the people etc. And they are not bothered about internal/external threats to the country as long as it doesn’t bother their security or operations. But few local businesses will get some businesses, and that also I doubt would end up in the hands of Indians. See other countries where they had/have bases like Bahrain, Saudi, Kuwait, Qatar etc.

    Most of the Buddhist clergy is an undesirable lot. But Mr. Ali has forgotten that two months earlier and islamic terrorist group blew up people in churches, hotels. If the security forces did not hunt down the remaining lot, the destruction could have been much worse. That is what greatly created present situation, not Buddhist monks or mythology or history, favorite punching bags of unreasonable minorities when they are out of arguments.

      Had the lazy, good for nothing, not fit for purpose members of security forces had taken prompt action immediately after receiving Hindian’s warning about the impending bombing these horrendous incidents could have been completely avoided.

        Your ignorance is a pain to me.
        Under the ordinary law, the security forces cannot take any action against terrorists. It is the duty of the Police Department. Again, the Police Department cannot take any action if the political hierarchy blocks them.
        Security forces took prompt action to avoid further suicide blasts and carried out combined raids the moment the Emergency Law was in place.
        The Emergency Law should be extended for at least two more months so that the security forces can continue raids.

        Native Vedda,
        “Had the lazy, good for nothing, not fit for purpose members of security forces had taken prompt action immediately after receiving Hindian’s warning about the impending bombing these horrendous incidents could have been completely avoided.”

        Native Veddas are intelligent enough not to make this kind of dumb statements. Only fake Veddas make such dumb statements.
        This dumb fake Vedda has forgotten what the so called lazy good for nothing security forces did to LTTE headed by barbarian Prabhakaran who thought that his army cannot be defeated militarily.

        This dumb Vedda does not know that security forces cannot take action unless they are given orders. The failure is with the two dumbos at the top. Hindian warning were forwarded to right places following the right procedure but those at the top of the hierarchy failed to take action. As soon as they received orders after the Muslim terrorist attack, security forces and official of the intelligence service did a wonderful job.

      “why is there a standoff between Tamils and Muslims in Kalmunai where Tamils threaten boycott of Muslim shops?”

      Tamils love Muslims too much and Muslims love Tamil too much.
      What is the other saffron clad trouble maker Athuraliye Rathana doing there in Kalmunai, looking for trouble. He assured the since Tamils the combined population of Tamil and Sinhalese amounts to 90% the Muslims can do nothing to both.

      What a reassuring message from a known card carrying public racist.
      It is for the stupid Tamils to trust him.

      “The Muslims are a minority only in this country, but a majority globally and nobody should think that they could subjugate us”, according to former Eastern Province Governor Dr. M.L.A.M.Hizbullah.

      Sinhala/Buddhist population is one of the smallest in the world.
      What are you going to do about it?

        To celebrate their love I think there should be a mass scale replacement of Muslims to North, Jaffna. We will make sure it happens.
        Is Rathana in Kalmunai? Rathana is your yahapalana mp. Ranil side mp.

        Sinhala population will be taken care of under state aided project

    SOFA/VFA and other F’s???? The 22 million in Sri Lanka care tuppence who runs the
    Govt – UNP, the Rajapakse family, Gamaya or whoever. They have all proved to be
    rogues, looters and under performers. The people are worried about
    a peaceful country, peaceful living, adequate schooling for their children, good hospitals and affordable medicine, affordable food and clothing, affordable and efficient mass transport, affordable Power and Energy, clean and plentiful water.
    And certainly good jobs for the Graduates and others.
    They care little if the Chinese, Indians, Americans or who else is here in pursuit of their own geo-political objectives. They are no less patriotic than the rogues who go as political leaders and even the surreptitious political.monks They only want a peaceful and decent life. They don’t care who gives this to them. They have been taken for a ride for 75 years by this bogus talk of nationalism, jaathiya, aagama and a whole host of b.s.

    Easter carnage was caused by a Muslim minority group not by Sinhala Budhists or Buddhist monks. Why don’t you clean up your own house first Mr Ali rather than creating an unhealthy and offensive stand off. It is apparent Sri Lanka has been very unfortunate to harbour such unpatriotic minorities who take the best out of the country and only cause trouble in return for what they receive. It is time the majority community stop bending over backwards to appease these ungrateful migrant minorities who have become insatiable. There is the slave minorities brought here by the British in chains who were later planted in the North and by virtue of the American missionaries teaching them English and converting them to Catholicism gained some kudos and ever since clamouring for a part of the country to be carved out for them ! And the Muslims who came as vendors settling down with local women and were treated as equals now talking as if they deserve to be on top of everything everytime. Get a life Ali or go to a country you think you can lord over it and that will be GROBR for tired old SL.

    Sri Lankan sunnis must be highly watch. Even Russia says, now ISIS are more active in Africa, South Asia, South East Asia etc.,
    India says a similar story.
    India and Sri Lanka are likely to be under threat with terror group ISIS turning its attention to the Indian Ocean Region in the wake of losses across Syria and Iraq, intelligence reports have warned.

    https://www.ndtv.com/video/news/news/isis-shift-in-strategy-may-threaten-india-sri-lanka-warns-intel-519036
    According to the details of inter-police communication, Kerala police officers hinted at the possibility of such a development. “After loss of territory in Iraq and Syria, IS is urging operatives to take up violent forms of jihad while staying back in their respective countries,” one of the documents accessed by NDTV read.
    One of the documents circulated less than a fortnight ago quoted inputs as saying that “key installations in Kochi, including a prominent shopping mall, could become ISIS targets”. It went on to cite increased ISIS-related cyber-activity in the country as signs of terror attacks to come.
    Senior officials cited Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kashmir as the states most vulnerable to the ISIS influence in the country. While the Telegram Messenger was a preferred mode of communication among ISIS operatives until now, fear of information leak has now forced them to use other secure apps such as ChatSecure, Signal and SilentText, one of the documents stated.

    “The root cause of the nation’s malaise is its ethnic and religious disunity.”

    Racist Wellala politicians starting from kallathoni Chelvanayakam and opportunistic Muslim politicians are responsible for creating this situation.
    Racist Wellala Demala politicians started anti-Sinhala movement and portraying Sinhalayo as their enemy while British were occupying Sinhale probably with the blessings of British. Demalu smuggled guns from India in 1930s to fight with Sinhalayo. Even now British play a role in maintaining disunity among different communities.


    There were no major problems between Sinhala and Muslim communities. Even the 1915 incident was created by evil British rulers to massacre Sinhalayo who were opposed to colonial rule.
    The problem started after Wahabi sect became powerful and Muslim politicians going after them for their political survival.
    All the incidences that occurred recently between Sinhalayo and Muslims were orchestrated by invisible hands. That is the reason for not conducting proper investigations.

    Among Sinhalayo there is a saying ‘okkoma kunu beruwal bokkata’ (all dirt ends up in Beruwala bay). Native Sinhalayo are blamed for everything that goes wrong with minorities in this country. Minorities keep on inventing problems to put the blame on Native Sinhalyo. BBC put the blame on Sinhala Buddhists for the terrorist attack carried out by Muslims. Both BBC and Aljazeera gave more prominence to anti-Muslim incidences that happened after three weeks downplaying the terrorist attack carried out by Muslims killing more than 250 people and injuring about 500 people

    Usually Amir Ali is in right path in his essays. While reading few lines in the essays of Muslim Writers like Latheef, Hilmi, Usuf…. et al is very difficult, Amir Ali maintain well his logic and his essays are readable.
    Here his problem is his anti-American policy is taking him away from his usual path.
    American pressure on political issue is always to tune small nations within democratic line. Neither OIC nor China has a policy like that. Both sectors are world known Law and Order less countries. They help small countries to break law and order. They both supported Lankawe cheat in May 2009 to dodge War Crimes.
    From 1948 there are many communal riots and pogrom took place, in Lankawe. Almost all of them were over Tamils. OIC supported Lankawe in May 2009 at UNHRC. But when NWP province riots took place in retaliation to Easter Sunday bombing, they threatened to bring in economic sections on Lankawe. OIC countries are the only countries so far threaten economic sections so openly, but it was only for internal riots. But they helped Lankawe to dodge War Crimes. OIC even interfering Karu’s parliament matters.
    China coerces countries to its financial benefits. Its main tool is loan, Philippine, Malaysia, Nigeria and other countries mentioned that they cannot be come another Lankawe by excessive borrowing from China. At least seven countries, including Pakistan is revising their dealing with China. China, when India was asked to repair the Nuraicholai Machines, directly gets involved in Lankawe computers. This how they obtained Colombo Pong Cing on Freehold, with full sovereignty. This has not happened to any country in the new era. With that courage China berthed its nuclear submarines. China is the only country had done that until then. China is the only country recognized Old Royals Coup as legitimate power change. They illegally funded elections.
    FDI didn’t come from 1948. If Lankawe want to turn around the economy, allow the American bases, though there is some risk at war times.

    Ameer Ali
    I don’t agree with your first para.
    The communal animosity was NOT created by Buddhist clergy or Sinhalese. They only reacted this time, verbally, after decades of patience about the animosity of Tamils and Muslims against Sinhalese.
    Anyway, I have no intention to continue on that line, as I wish to pay more attention to the SOFA/ACSA/VFA.
    THANK YOU for the rest of the article!!!!
    It is imperative for Sri Lankan citizens to rise as one against all these American Agreements.
    Although the US Secretary of State has cancelled his visit, there is no guarantee that they will abandon the idea of acquiring Sri Lanka. What an easy invasion!
    I wrote to a Sinhala Daily that people should start hoisting Black Flags against US State Secretary’s visit. However, it is now cancelled.
    Although the visit will not take place, there is a high chance that the slave government will sign these agreements with the US Ambassador.
    Therefore, this is not the time to go after Muslim matter, though it is something we have serious concern.
    A strong voice should be raised against SOFA, VFA combined ACSA as these agreements make Sri Lanka completely lose land, air and naval rights.
    Moreover, the country will be physically divided in two ways; from Colombo to Trinco via Anuradhapura and again from Manar to Trinco, not to the loss of mention millions of acres of lands to foreigners.
    MP Wimal Weerawansa has raised serious concerns about SOFA/VFA/ACSA in Parliament several times.
    These Agreements with the USA and the proposed new Land Act which paves the way for American invasion, SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ALLOWED TO BRING TO Parliament.
    The Speaker can easily disable this action, if the PM tries to table them before the Parliament.
