A Sri Lankan friend, living in Canada, send me this YouTube.


For those of you who may not be familiar, ‘Sinhala‘, the language of the majority Sinhalese, is the predominant language of Sri Lanka.


China already through various deals & LEASES owns a fair chunk of coastal Sri Lanka — including one strategic port.

Various administrations, over the last two decades, have out of desperation or for personal gain, given China more & more access & sway over the country. China is happy to lend Sri Lanka lost of money (with backhanders in tow) as long as the loans are backed up by access to land & water.

It is no secret that China doesn’t have enough fertile land to support it population. They are buying & leasing land all over the world.

Sri Lanka has the advantage of being rather close & with great ports.

Some discerning Sri Lankans are understandably concerned. Sri Lanka has only been independent since 1948. Will it still be truly independent in 2048?

Best Thing For Sri Lanka, Right Now, Would Be For China To Take It Over & Manage It! {Smile}

Weekend article in ‘The New York Times’ highlighting Sri Lanka’s never ending woes.


It is unlikely to ever happen, BUT it is worth a thought.

Most, bar India, are unlikely to care, but India is now too big for even China to want to mess around.

There is, of course, a basis for my provocative thought. China is said to be slowly gobbling up whatever bits of Sri Lanka it can — starting with the strategic harbor in Galle. So, China sure has an incentive, though even they may decide that Sri Lankan people are a lost cause.

The political situation in Sri Lanka is untenable. It has been neverending intrigue and infighting for 30-years. The people are fickle too. They vote in a party and within 6-months start to hate the party they just put in power. They really are like kids. I hate to say this but we haven’t acted like adults in the last few decades.

Hence, the need for colonization AGAIN!

Yes, 200-years of continuous colonization appears to have left a mark. We seem to require discipline instilled by a foreign power.

You can just see Sri Lanka under Chinese rule! They will stop all this nonsense. They will the economy back on track. Make it safe for tourist.

Yes, I know it is unlikely to happen, but it is something to dream about. A placid Sri Lanka with no infighting.
