Chinese foothold in Sri Lanka similar to what is coming to Solomon Islands

Letter to the Editor

Sri Lanka – a national crisis or an example of a future that is to come for all nations in dependence and “global” debt?

“A few years ago, Sri Lanka had a booming tourism industry and promising infrastructure projects that made global headlines. Now the country is broke.
With more than $50 billion (€46 billion) in external debt and a shortage of foreign exchange reserves, the country is currently struggling to pay for essential imports. This has led to sharp increases in the price of essential commodities like rice, fuel, and milk. A fuel shortage recently left much of the country suffering through a 13-hour power cut.”

Sri Lanka after a two decade long civil war and a tsunami that financially and tragically uprooted the tropical gem of the commonwealth of nations, China approached the corrupt political SL crime family with “lending a helping hand” in exchange for a 99 year long lease and several projects to improve SL infrastructure and become an international hub on China’s belt and road.

China has a strong foothold in bankrupt Sri Lanka, Solomon Islands next

“China holds a significant portion of Sri Lanka’s total foreign debt, nearly 10%, with more held by Japan, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. India holds nearly 3%.
Regional powers India and China have been competing with each other to gain a foothold in the strategic island nation. Sri Lanka is a critical link for China in their Belt and Road global infrastructure projects. For India, Sri Lanka is a geo-politically significant country.”
Geo-politically significant for INDIA also includes massive unclaimed natural gas reserves located in the north/east of Sri Lankan territory bordering Indian waters. The real cause of the Tamil independence movement that brought a two decade long “civil and religious” war. India of cause had its own interest in the conflict and sponsored one side of the war that killed or replaced 250000 Sri Lankans over ¼ of a century. 50000 service men and approx 100000 civilians died.
When Covid arrived in Sri Lanka, with it came the usual governmental opportunity of corruption and “skimming” of Governmental tax payer and credit funded national funds.

“Poor leadership, pilferage, and criminal activities during “Covid” were conducted in conjunction with the SL health department and the military. During deals made by Government officials, personal “negotiator” profits rose between 10% to 90% on deals made in foreign currencies, concerning the importation of WHO approved vaccines. Besides using ineffective vaccines (against new variants), the military, police and health department coerced vaccination to expand profits and, as per unconfirmed claims, to use up expired vaccines which was unethical and violated the SL constitution and the Nuremberg Code of ethics.”
“The newly appointed Minister of Finance, Ali Sabry, whose expertise is in law and not in economics or finance, expressed premature optimism about the country’s economic revival after returning from his team’s discussion with IMF officials in Washington. According to him the financial and economic difficulties facing the nation would be overcome in a month’s time with “soaring support” from international bodies and friendly nations. While everyone wishes that to be true, one fails to see any hard evidence for such a prospect.

It is true that the minister and his company had a fruitful discussion with IMF officials, and there was agreement on the mechanism of IMF’s suggested pathway to achieve some sort of economic stability. Among its recommendations are tight monetary policy to counter escalating inflation, flexible exchange rates to reduce currency speculation and rupee depreciation, and higher taxes to improve government revenue. The first two are within the powers of the Central Bank and they have a short lag time in impacting market activities. But the third is a budgetary measure that has to be legislated through parliament. Given the state of political anarchy prevailing in the country it will take some time for the parliament, government and the presidency to put their acts together to repair the damage they have collectively caused to the economy.

While the minister is raising false hopes to save the tottering regime, ground reality is injecting more and more pessimism and desperation. There is no end to the long consumer queues in front of retail outlets to buy a few essentials and those queues are getting longer and longer. An eighth victim has been reported to have died while waiting to buy kerosine. There is scarcity in every possible consumer item and even the little available in the market is sold at exorbitant prices. Starvation, which never visited Sri Lanka in the past, is now knocking at the doors of thousands of households.

The problems facing the country are too many and too complex and they need a new system and a new approach. This appears to have been understood by the new generation of Sri Lankans who are not prepared to drink any more of the old wine served in new glasses. Aragalaya represents this hard truth. This generation understands what its rights are in a democracy, and how those rights of their parents and grandparents were trampled by political regimes that represented particular group interests.”

There is only one world that is plagued by one and the same problem. Political regimes that represent interests of foreign groups and trample on and despise their own citizens and voters alike.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. “China approached the corrupt political SL crime family with “lending a helping hand” in exchange for a 99 year long lease.” Sounds like that deal over Darwin Harbour to me. They’ve got a working method going. Then there’s the 99 year leases in WA. I wonder how long the Pine Gap lease is for? And North West Cape?

    Politicians believe that salvation comes from gathering as many of the Jewish dollars as they can get.


  3. Tony, you seem to talk about Australia which like Sri Lanka is a member of the Come on wealth.

    Another parallel is the exploitation of natural resources, the enslavement of natives/subjects under “Law and order” that the red coats imposed in their colonies from day one. That law and order under the Commonwealth and playing natives like fiddles through division, harbored controlled corruption and fat baksheesh for some selected natives that suited the masters game. China, like in Australia was “invited” through those in political power and rewards were paid out to the decision makers while future economics, stability and growth was promised.

    Again, like on Australian shores the political establishment was bred to be corrupt and manageable by their puppet masters. China, India and Russia are played like the “opposition” the corrupt West.

    All one can see on international stage is the same game of deceit – staging wars, famine and pandemics to furthering a shift in the world order of corruption. No country is better or worse. It is the people and citizens that always suffer and shed blood for the ones who sit somewhere cozy overseas and pull their strings, while well fed and paid politicians of their nations are bribed by their own stupidity.

    “It’s really hard to sympathise. The fat arseholes had it coming. And letting the Chinese take over harbours was just plain lazy and stupid.” Tony one can only guess you know Sri Lanka through watching cricket on TV.

    All of us Aussies will see what really is coming very soon in our own country. And to be honest not even the “wake” ones dared to see it coming.

    Nothing on world stage is about bad China, bad Jews or bad UK or USA. Everything is about corruption on national and international level. The rule of the coin imposed by global money changers on all their global “colonies” and well paid native political corrupt henchmen that do not care is the problem here and those henchmen come from ALL different tribes, even “thick” Australians that pretending to be patriots.

    Neither Sri Lanka nor Australia will vote corruption out!

    Laughing on the Way to Armageddon — Paul Craig Roberts

    “…………..The United States has an ambassador to the world who shows no signs of intelligence, who behaves as if she is Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee to the 5th power, and who is the total antithesis of a diplomat. What does this tell about the United States?

    It reveals that the US is in the Roman collapse stage when the emperor appoints horses to the Senate.

    The United States has a horse, an uncivilized horse, as its diplomat to the world. The Congress and executive branch are also full of horses and horse excrement. The US government is completely devoid of intelligence. There is no sign of intelligence anywhere in the U.S. government. Of or morality. As Hugo Chavez said: Satan is there; you can smell the sulphur.

    America is a joke with nuclear weapons, the prime danger to life on earth.

    How can this danger be corralled?

    The American people would have to realize that they are being led to their deaths by the Zionist neocon nazis who, together with the military/security complex and Wall Street, control US foreign policy, by the complicity of Europe and Great Britain desperate to retain their CIA subsidies, and by the harlots that comprise the Western media.

    Are Americans capable of comprehending this? Only a few have escaped The Matrix.

    Who really organised the “discovery” of Australia?

    South Wales moved to the New South Wales

    W. HUGHES, Premier of Australia, Saturday Evening Post, June 19, 1919 “The Montefiores have taken Australia for their own, and there is not a gold field or a sheep run from Tasmania to New South Wales that does not pay them a heavy tribute. They are the real owners of the antipodean continent. What is the good of our being a wealthy nation, if the wealth is all in the hands of German Jews?”

    Meanwhile the “Synagogue of Satan” (Rev. 2:9 & 3:9) owns and controls the US which in turn owns and controls Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia is a corporation registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.


    The Rothschilds, Goldman Sachs, and Warburgs of Hamburg are primary holders of the Federal Reserve Bank.


    Jewish Magazine To Honour Jewish Journalist Who Said Jews Control The White House & Congress

    Next month, the jewish magazine Moment will hold its “DC Gala & Awards Dinner” honouring four ‘distinguished’ journalists, including Thomas Friedman of The New York Times, who has candidly admitted that the pro-Israel AIPAC controls Congress and The White House:


    All of Australia’s essential services have been sold by politicians and are now under Jewish corporate control.

    Was it in the interests of national security for governments to privatise all of Australia’s essential services from electricity to the government owned Banker to the Commonwealth – the Commonwealth Bank? Our income tax is used to pay off the Christian forbidden usury owed on government borrowing from foreigners when their is absolutely no need for that to be the case. The principle is never lowered on the governments interest bearing, non repayable loans.

    All politicians are liars and traitors.


  6. Here we go again.
    Now that the ‘Jewish/Judaism’ rhetoric has been done to rigamortis, now we’re back on the ‘Big Bad China’ hype. God knows we can’t do ‘Big Bad Russia’ anymore can we?

    The Sri Lankan people have been oppressed and suffering under dreadful successive governments for years. They have more recently (for over a month now) been rioting because of starvation.
    Nobody has given a rats.
    Until that is, China at Sri Lanka’s (Rajanaksa’s) request offers to help. Along with India and the IMF.

    Here is an excerpt from the Indian Express:

    “Rajapaksa has also sought help from China and India, particularly assistance on fuel from the latter. A diesel shipment under a $500 million credit line signed with India in February is expected to arrive on Saturday. Sri Lanka and India have signed a $1 billion credit line for importing essentials, including food and medicine, and the Rajapaksa government has sought at least another $1 billion from New Delhi.
    After providing the CBSL with a $1.5 billion swap and a $1.3 billion syndicated loan to the government, China is considering offering the island nation a $1.5 billion credit facility and a separate loan of up to $1 billion”.

    Any takers for ‘Big Bad India’?
    Wonder how long before we’re back to ‘Big Bad Japan’.

  7. What can I say?

    Sri Lanka has coasted on corruption, elitism, cynicism, racism, and opportunism for some fifty years. Its education system created a generation of dogmatic and exploitative graduates who had lost the capacity to listen. Integrity was a word no longer welcome in vocabulary,

    The inevitable has happened and now famine is seeping through every door and window. Sri Lanka is about to experience what it imposed on Tamils.

    It’s really hard to sympathise. The fat arseholes had it coming. And letting the Chinese take over harbours was just plain lazy and stupid.

    Yet I look at some beautiful Sri Lankan women and think, if only…

    Nah. They will never listen. Sri Lanka is paying the price of arrogance.
