  1. You are very wrong, if you think that you have successfully divided the Asians and got a foothold in the Indian Ocean. Sri Lankans are very resilient people. They have made diaspora and the LTTE as toothless tigers. Lankans will do the same to few politicians who may betray the country and Asia in the name of good governance. Lankans are watching those politicians’ every move very carefully.

  2. I have just returned from Sri Lanka after a month stay in my home country. I was impressed by the infrastructure developmemt and roads carried out by Rajapakse Government within such a short time after 30 years of devastation. If US and the West want to purposely ignore this achievement and praise Sirisena Govt, then it shows their ignorance and partiality. Sri Lanka has always been a tolerant country compared to US which is full of racists and violent people. History reveals that.

  4. Kerry do you know the history of Sri Lanka to praise what has taken place in Sri Lanka last year. If not for people like you and your political influence in the developing world the whole world would be a better place.

  5. What rubbish is this? We were fooled by yahapalana crooks on Jan 8. Our economy is tanked, crime is rising, corruption is everywhere and cost of living is skyrocketing. This man has no sense of where Sri Lanka today. Deceiving friends like these are the worst enemies of us.
