The West's prolonged and sustained regime change plan has paid dividends with Mahinda Rajapaksha being ousted from his office at the Presidential Election that concluded yesterday.  As I noted in one of my previous post this plan by the West culminated with the candidature of Mythripala Sirisena to challenge the President Mahinda.With Mahinda out of office Sri Lanka will never ...

This discussion should revolve around more of geo-political dynamism rather than narrowing down to local political dynamics which have been the most dominant focus up to date since Mithripala Sirisena defected to the opposition to challenge incumbent president Mahinda Rajapaksha at the presidential election to be held tomorrow.    There is strong tendency among some quarters, especially among anti-Mahinda Rajapaksha ...

With former president Chandrika Bandaranayake Kumaranathunga's (CBK's) recent insane claim that she had finished 75% of the war by the time she left the office, many a people here and abroad must have jolted into reality what would be in store for them in the event of a government of Mithripala Sirisena's coming into power.  These types of empty, meaningless ...
