US Urges Its Citizens In Sri Lanka To Exercise Caution Against Rising Anti-Western Sentiments

The US has issued a security message for its citizens living in Sri Lanka to be wary of their security against the backdrop of rising anti-western sentiments in the country.

Issuing a security message to US expats in Sri Lanka yesterday, the notice has urged all US citizens to practice caution due to the increased protests in the country. The message is circulated just days after a mob of extremist monks and Rajapaksa regime supporters disrupted a meeting held for families of the disappeared in which US and UK diplomats also attended.

The security message has noted the increase in protests in Sri Lanka since early this year including the:

-anti-western demonstrations against the US, UN and recent escalation in Gaza

-increased pressure on NGOS, journalists and others affiliated with US projects

-disruption of civil society meetings

Furthermore in the notice, the US Embassy has recommended its citizens in Sri Lanka to avoid areas of demonstrations and exercise caution if they happen to be in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests or demonstrations.

Listing out additional measures that can be implemented to ensure safety, they have requested the US expats to check for possible updates, enrolled with the US embassy through the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) that offers latest security updates and makes it easier for the US embassy to contact them in an emergency as well as to monitor media coverage of local events and remain aware of their surroundings at all times.

It has also warned travelers to review their personal security plans and follow the instructions of local authorities when traveling in Sri Lanka.

    Please some one give a feeling bottle to Barak.

    You know very well who are creating that Anti Western Mantra.

    Its your citizen, a madman who was working in your 7eleven and then pecked a few keyboards entering data after leaving Sri Lanka on medical grounds claimed that he had a problem with his head, (which was indeed true) The man called Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa – A US CITIZEN.
    You can stop all Anti Western/Anti American bullshits in the island with a single call to his ‘Bread fruit’ faced brother.

    Do that first, if you really want peace in this country.
    This US citizen, lunatic madman ‘Nande Master’ has close links with so many criminals and you know that damn well too.

    No point beating around the bush.

      I read in Tamils news that Obama said on a Iraq question “It doesn’t matter who are these Americans are, but we can do it, so if there is a genocide we will go and stop it.” So, the Tamils have raised a question if Obama still knows about Lanka.

      I wonder if Obama too has learned Lankan politics after our Brother Prince went and worked at Seven Eleven.

      ‘The US has issued a security message for its citizens living in Sri Lanka to be wary of their security against the backdrop of rising anti-western sentiments in the country.
      The message is circulated just days after a mob of extremist monks and Rajapaksa regime supporters disrupted a meeting held for families of the disappeared in which US and UK diplomats also attended.’

      Is it not strange for the US not to have adviced first, their Diplomats who were present at the meeting that was disrupted, before advising their citizens? After all, is it not their own citizen, Gota who is responsible for the actions of the BBS who has the support of the US, responsible for Anti-US demonstrations in the country, where Gota has not being questioned even once by the US shedding crocodile tears for Human Rights Violations and War Crimes here at the UN, with diluted actions just to deceive the world. The truth is the US after the 2nd World War has embarked on a plan without foolishly trying to Colonize the Countries as the British did, but run all the countries to their whims by getting the Mediocre, Corrupt and the Violent individuals elected from within to govern. This art of staging elections they have mastered so well, that almost all Presidents of the US in it’s History have been staged and anyone else who defied was assassinated. The US was so smart that they started infiltrating most Colonies before they were granted Independence and carried on their campaigns of instilling divisions within the countries using Religion, Race and Politics be they Left oriented or Right Oriented, to be flared after being granted Independence from time to time, inflaming conflicts, funding and supporting all sides secretively and making good money providing Arms to the warring parties.

      If one is to look at our situation, the US invaded Ceylon then, while under the British through the Tea Plantations securing the Rothschild and the Sogama Estate. These two Estates would not have meant anything on the Balance Sheet of the Company, except the foothold to infiltrate. Then the US sent Henry Steel Olcott in 1890 to revive Buddhism, a good cover to foster division and end up with the present BBS who again under Gota a US citizen, has revealed connections to the US, when the US has issued a five year multiple Visa for the BBS to enter the US, while the genuine have been denied Visa.

      In the post Independent history of all countries that were Colonies once, none have been spared of violence stemming from Religious, Racial and Political dogmas for the Mediocre, Corrupt and the Violent to replace the Educated, Honest, Decent Politicians of yore. It appears that the modern media is used to pop individuals, with no proper Education or background or standing in society, of their choice as Leaders of Countries after the stages are set to get them elected who are heavily backed by the US secretively. The recent Leaders elected in India and Indonesia are a case in point and ours is no different where Democracy is openly flouted, Freedom of Expression muzzled, Selective Justice dispensed by a Cheap Justice in a Judiciary where the Chief Magistrate Fort has been found to have misappropriated a Baby elephant fraudulently yet continuing in service. President BASL being trailed by sleuths in HSZ just like how Lasantha Wickrematunge was trailed and killed, and a host of other Corruption and Murders being committed daily while this Nincompoop Obama boasted in his Inaugural Address as President of the US warning all countries in the world to uphold the Rule of Law and Democracy, but allowing their stooges the Rajapaksas to openly violate with absolute impunity. What a Mockery we are subject to?

    US Urges Its Citizens In Sri Lanka To Exercise Caution Against Rising Anti-Western Sentiments

    Good advice, because they will not punish their pet Israel.

    There are Sinhala Buddhist Monk running Amok and killing an destroying properties.

    This is Sinhala “Buddhism”. They have been doing this since 1948 or so.

    Can one turn Sinhalese Buddhists into Agnostics and achieve peace?

    All myth believers should be turned into agnostics, until the myths are proven.

      K.A Sumanasekera , Lorenzo, Leela, Jim Softy and avtars,

      “Thank God the the Mad Monks..”

      Too bad. The Sinhala “Buddhist” Monks list an opportunity to show their true colors of Para-Sinhala B”Buddhism” they have been practicing for quite some time.

      Can we convert these Sinhala “Buddhist ” monks into Agnostic Monks?

      After all Rebirth, Nirvana, Nibbana, Apaya, Karmic Energy are not not yet Proven or confirmed, after 2,500 years and there is no expectation they they will be able to prove these right. These are just illusions to keep the Monk Hegemony.

      PS> Whay is it Amarasir’s posts are giving Indigestion and Constption to lankaweb moderators? Cannot accept facts ., hust like the cathiloc Church 400 years ago, and the mullah and Ulema?

    The Rajapakses, in their pathetic ignorance of how to run the country and its own poor diplomatic interaction with the expat community, have brought the country to unprecedented disrepute.

    The USA usually reserves this kind of warning to countries generally on the “danger list” of all other countries. We have virtually isolated Britain, France, the EU and India. What’s going on with
    these clueless Rajapakses?

    This is all very timely.

    Of course any Sri Lankan lucky to travel to the promised land in the west will already be well briefed as to the perils and pitfalls that await them in the land of the free.

    US BULL $hit or it is CT’s crap.. they think Sri Lankans are also CRAZY.

    Read this.

    “Michigan law affords broad protection for residents who use firearms to defend their homes. But a jury here Thursday rejected a local man’s self-defense argument, finding he committed murder when he shot and killed an unarmed teen on his porch

    After about eight hours of deliberation over two days, a racially diverse jury of seven men and five women convicted Theodore Wafer of second-degree murder in the death of Renisha McBride, a 19-year-old student and auto worker from Detroit.

    The 55-year-old homeowner from Dearborn Heights, a Detroit suburb, testified this week that he suspected a break-in when he heard banging on his front and side doors before dawn on Nov. 2. He opened his front door and said he feared for his life when he shot Ms. McBride through the locked screen door as she stood on his porch.

    Prosecutors argued the airport worker shot and killed Ms. McBride because he was upset about the early-morning pounding and sought out a confrontation instead of calling authorities. “

    Every person is responsible for their own actions. Because of US, UK, Paki,China,Istral sold dirty and off dated weapons, that doesn’t mean you can use them to kill innocent people. Likewise the army also guilty of carying out satanic orders from lunatic heads. For so many killings in the North & East, punishing few people on the top is not enough. Even if majority of guilty people escape from the law, they can not escape from karma. They will harvest what they sown in vanni before death.Killing is not only sin, admiring& celebrating military win is also sin – God is greate

    American citizen like Gotabaya, Basil, Dullas, Podi Hamuduruwo of Gangarama and others should take this warning very carefully. If the citizen seems to be in danger, the State Department may take appropriate ate action to get US Citizen airliftend to save them.

    So Gota ma y ha have to Air Lift from his country. If SL government to secure their safety. Get ready Gota to fly soon with US Forces.

    Is this relevant to all US Citizens including Gota?

      What if Gota has rescinded his US Citizenship? He cannot be air-lifted by
      the US Embassy with other US citizens who are in danger. This may not make many happy.

      War crimes whilst being a US citizen stands and I suppose he is answerable
      even if he has rescinded his US Citizenship. He has dual-citizenship here.

      Gota and Army Officers with war-crime files are all needed for MR to
      organize a Coup himself, if things are going against him. He has only
      sanctions to face which to him is zero!

    My Dear President,
    Are you trying to protect the ‘Criminals from the U.S. or are you being sincere here?. There are still a few educated, experienced skilled and enlightened people from all walks of life living in Ceylon and overseas. You can fool some but not all. Right now Sri Lanka needs stern commitments toward re-establishing ‘Law & Order’ in the country as it has been under siege by a few lunatics with US passports and Green cards. They don’t love the West nor the East. They are criminals. Do not tell me that you are not fully aware of the secret plans of the Rajapakses.

    This is how you instigated the blood bath in Egypt, isn’t it? I am afraid, Mr.President, that is not going to happen here. Sri Lankan’s are a peace-loving population than the ‘Egyptions’ (Misrs.

    You got what you wanted in Egypt, a military leader. Less educated is better for you isnt’t that true Mr. President?. Unfortunately, you will never be able to have one in Sri Lanka. I am no republican nor a commi but an enlightened to the present.
    So, Mr. President, I beg you not to take any foolish decisions and create more suffering. The Sri Lankans scattered around the world expect one thing from the US at the moment. Take your criminal back!

      He Sincere?
      This man has blood in his hands.
      He allowed the IsraHell to bombard the besieged Palestinians indiscriminately thus killing hundreds of children.

      More over, this man Obama on Monday signed into law a measure providing $225 million in emergency aid to Israel for its Iron Dome system.

          Nope they are probably behind the stolen funds that Rajapakses acquired for the past several years in various fraudulent ways and means. Its not a joke, its big money. Otherwise they wouldn’t even pee on this uneducated, uncivilized, uncouth, uncultured jarapassas.

          Oil and Gas deposit is a tool to fool the permanently handicapped idiotic Sinhalese which has been the case since Sirima Mayyokka/Bathalawathi/ Bandaranayake.

    Seems like the Rajapaksa regime has wasted millions of dollars of public money on PR agencies in the US to influence Obama. Obama knows what the Rajapaksa brothers are up to and would not be influenced by these PR gimmicks of Jarapassa.

    Could it be that Obama talks in reversible language,that
    he’s signalling to Srilankans to be cautious about US
    citizens against the backdrop of rising anti-western
    sentiments?

    Sri lanka is few countries in world, who practice valued democracies in accepted by respretantive democracy of West. When we were suffered and bully by Tamil terrorism, that the people of Sri Lankan safeguard democratic rights, which that US govt.point-out their finger that said , that we are ‘War Criminals’. US has accused and label elected Govt. of SL as ‘war criminal and human rights violators’.
    The fought against LTTE terrorism and defeated LTTE was national agenda of our survival of Sovereignty and Democracy of people of all Sri lankans, irrescapcative of their races, religion and disparity of class differences our society. That was task undertaken by Elected Govt. of MR Ruling party democratic mission and restoration of norms of civil society of an Island after 30 years war against Tamil -terrorist.
    That was not personal agenda of MR ruling party in power, war against Tamils terrorist . Defeated LTTE was vital interest of Our Nation, Country and People; by the way US don’t understand that fact the aspiration peace and stability is life line of People of Sri Lankan. People of Sri-lankan that ever-never threaten to security, of that US Govt. or its citizens .

    ..but, Gota boy doesn’t seems to be worried about anything and carrying on with his crazy adventures as always. What’s wrong with this guy ?!
    Is he trying to be remembered like a little Hitler of Asia or like the Khemer Rouge killers of Cambodia ? Probably he’s just following Myanmar’s fake Buddhist Junta and the loony monkey monk Wiratu. They all will end up somewhere someday with a glory and gory past.

    This is strange. After the Aluthgama riots the Aussie Govt issued a travel advisory to it’s citizens hoping to travel to Sri Lanka. Then the Aussie govt issues a visa to the chief instigator of these riots.

    Likewise the U.S Govt with all it’s surveillance in place must be aware who it’s own citizens in the SL govt are. And Whether any or all of them are responsible for these “anti western sentiments” and the absence of the rule of law and order.

    btw is anyone aware of the govt analyst’s report on the Panadura No Limit fire? That is if it saw the light of day. It seems to have disappeared from the mainstream media and nobody seems to remember this fire anymore! Was it arson or a very very short circuit?

    things are happening and changing so fast in our little island resort that nobody can keep track of anything anymore..The spin is too much?

    AL QAEDA is gathering in Maligawatte to attack a peaceful BBS march.

    Hopefully the police will stop the AL QAEDA terrorists from attacking people. SHOOT TO KILL if they do.

    Maligawatte is a den of Al Qaeda and Jihad groups.

    A major US funded terror attack on SL soon!! USA has already warned its citizens!!

    As the world’s major destabilizing agent, USA has planned a MAJOR terror attack on SL. It has already issued a TRAEL WARNING to US citizens not to go to SL!!

    Now Uncle Sam is getting DESPERATE. The old fart knows it cannot peacefully eliminate the ruling party.

    GOSL should immediately declare EMERGENCY and KILL anyone who created or TRIED TO CREATE violence and everyone even remotely associated with them.
