  1. The Americans are much more in debt to China than us a hundred times over, but they hold all the trump cards. Firstly, China has to import her oil which is paid in US$ from wherever they come. China has to earn it while USA just has to print it. America found the Chinese currency artificially appreciated and compelled them to depreciate which made their imports expensive but exports cheaper.

  2. Sirisena and Ranil used anti-China slogans to win the election, why now embracing China without giving credit to Rajapaksa?. Sirisena and Ranil are like double tongue lizards, no policy in politics.

  3. Thanks to the Rajapakse government, we are under much obligation to the Chinese and I will not be surprised if the Chinese demand to install a military base in Colombo or Trincomalee. The repercussions are too dire to contemplate.

    • we find all sorts of nonsensical rules of etiquette.!

      Only the Chinese can have their boots safely in the Opium valley of Afghanistan that poses a threat to Russia, china and less towards the west.

      The Chinese know what it was to lose beloved Hong Kong likewise the poor farmer who is being blessed with `saffron` in lieu from China who don’t fancy it in their own diet.

      Even the Indians love Chinese money and technological input inclusive of British Rover.
