CHINA VERSUS USA IN SRI LANKA

Sri Lanka by Aidan Jones

China is lending money to Sri Lanka.

The USA wants China out of Sri Lanka.

India must kick China out of Sri Lanka, says William Avery Firstpost
In October 2011, The Economist wrote the following about Sri Lanka and China t

"All of Sri Lanka's largest infrastructure projects - including highways, a coal-fired power station, a port and an airport - are funded through Chinese loans...

"China was Sri Lanka's biggest lender in 2010...

"China plans to pump $1.5 billion into Sri Lanka over three years to develop infrastructure including roads, bridges, water supply schemes, irrigation and power...

"India led Sri Lanka’s foreign direct investment, with $110m in 2010, followed by Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates..."

Sri Lanka's Defence Secretary has warned of attempts to destabilise Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is still under threat - warns Sri Lanka's Defence Secretary

"The primary involvement of China in Sri Lanka is in commerce and trade.

"In this regard, Sri Lanka is little different to a number of countries around the world.

"China is fast becoming one of the world's greatest economic powers, and its commercial links and economic influence on other nations will only increase as befits a nation of its strength.

"This is only natural, and not something to be unduly worried about.

"Sri Lanka has many friends on the global stage. China is one of them.

"There is no reason for anyone in Sri Lanka or outside to worry about the relationship between our two nations.

"A more realistic potential threat to our national security is the possibility that certain groups may strive to create instability in Sri Lanka through indirect methods.

"Having seen political change accomplished in countries such as Tunisia, Egypt and Libya through uprising, some parties that have failed to achieve their objectives through democratic means might resort to such activities even here."

Reportedly, the Tamil Tigers were supported by the USA and its allies.

A December 1983 Sunday Mail article reported that Mossad was arming and training the Tigers.

And, the British Special Air Services (SAS) firm Keenie Meenie Services was reportedly training the Tamil Tigers. (Southern India, Sri Lanka terrorist groups)


On 23 October 2009, at Global research, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya wrote about the Great Power Confrontation in the Indian Ocean: The Geo-Politics of the Sri Lankan Civil War

Among the points made:

1. India, the USA, Australia, UK, Japan, Canada, and the European Union supported the Tamil Tigers.

2. Iran, Russia, China and others supported the Sri Lankan government.

3. Chinese military ties with Sri Lanka started in the 1990s.

In 2007, Sri Lanka agreed to China building a massive naval port at Hambantota.

Thus Sri Lanka fell out with the USA and India.

4. The USA wants to encircle China and to prevent it from building bases outside Chinese territory.

5. After 2007, the USA cut its military assistance to the Sri Lankan military.

And Indian support for the Tamil Tigers increased.


6. After 2007, China began sending large arms shipments to Sri Lanka.

7. According to Brahma Chellaney of the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi, India: "China’s arms sales (were) the decisive factor in ending the military stalemate [in the Sri Lankan Civil War."

8. Sri Lankan leaders and military officials visited Iran, Russia and China in 2007 and 2008.

China, Russia, and Iran all helped arm the Sri Lankan military before the last phase of the Sri Lankan Civil War.

9. Russian, China, and Iran all face their own separatist movements like Sri Lanka.

All four nations see these movements as being supported by outside players.

10. Russia's Colonel-General Vladimir Moltenskoy acted as a military advisor to Colombo.




11. Sri Lanka is situated on a vital sea lane in the Indian Ocean.

The Chinese naval port at Hambantota is part of the struggle to secure energy routes.

Most of the energy supplies going to Asia pass Sri Lanka.

China wants a chain of naval bases in the Indian Ocean to protect energy supplies coming from the Middle East and Africa.

Myanmar (Burma) is also part of this project.

Iran wants to protect the sea routes between itself and China.

12. In 2009, Sri Lanka joined the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) as a dialogue partner. The SCO includes China and Russia.

13. If there had been a Tamil state it would most likely have been allied to the USA and India and might have had US military bases.

Mossad, and its friends, are active in Sri Lanka.

According to ex Mossad officer Victor Ostrovsky's book By Way of Deception (1990): (http://tamilnation.co/books/Eelam/deception.htm)

Mossad trained both the Sri lankan army and the Tamil Tigers.

Sri Lanka, Mossad, the CIA, drugs and arms dealers.

Sri Lankan foreign minister Lakshman Kadirgamar, a Tamil Christian, was bringing peace to Sri Lanka.

This was bad news for the arms dealers.

On 12 August 2005, Lakshman Kadirgamar was shot dead as he climbed out of the swimming pool at his luxury home.

SP Thamilselvan, leader of the Tamil Tigers’ political wing, denied that the Tigers were involved.

He suggested that elements of the majority Sinhalese might be responsible.

“We know there are sections within the Sri Lankan armed forces operating with a hidden agenda to sabotage the ceasefire,” he said.

Arms dealers? Sri Lanka's arms dealers, 'a shadowy bunch of politicians, servicemen, bureaucrats and their relatives and friends, who conclude multi-million-dollar deals nearly every day pocketing hefty commissions' are the beneficiaries of trouble in Sri lanka.

According to Larouche

(http://www.larouchepub.com/other/1995/2241_south_india_groups.html):

"In the early 1970s, the LTTE (Tamil Tigers) began establishing training camps and secret arms caches under the cover of a chain of Refugee and Rehabilitation Farms of the Gandhian Society.

"Funds for the farms came from Oxfam (Oxford Famine Relief), one of the most powerful and secretive British intelligence organizations acting under non-governmental organization cover...

"John Glover, a British feature writer, wrote to the Western Mail in Wales about the ongoing and future training programs for Tamil youth by British mercenaries.

"A band of mercenary soldiers recruited in South Wales is training a Tamil army to fight for a separate state in Sri Lanka. About 20 mercenaries were signed up after a meeting in Cardiff and have spent the last two months in southern India preparing a secret army to fight the majority Sinhalas, in the cause of a separate Tamil state in Sri Lanka," he said...

"According to accounts by retired officials of the Israeli secret service, the Mossad, the Israelis were simultaneously training the Sri Lanka Army and the Tigers, and providing arms to each.

"Victor Ostrovsky, author of By Way of Deception, told Indian Abroad news service in 1991 that the Tigers were trained in Israel in 1985.

"These groups kept coming and going. It was part of our routine job to take them to training camps and make sure that they were getting training worth what they paid for, not more and not less.

"The groups paid in cash.

"Ostrovsky said that the arrangement for the training was made by the Mossad liaison in India, who lived there under a British passport.

According to Larouche:

"A December 1983 Sunday Mail article reported that the Mossad was arming and training the Tigers, as well as the Sri Lankan Armed Forces.

"The British Special Air Services (SAS) firm Keenie Meenie Services, was simultaneously training the Sri Lankan Army and the LTTE...

"The LTTE is reported to be involved in trafficking heroin...

"According to intelligence reports, most of the arms used by the LTTE are purchased from Singapore, India, Afghanistan, and the Mideast.

"In 1987, the Hindustan Times reported that large quantities of arms with Pakistani and Israeli markings were seized by the Indian Peacekeeping Force in Jaffna from the LTTE.

"In 1989, according to a Sri Lankan government secretary, the LTTE was receiving armaments directly from the Sri Lankan government of President Ranasinghe Premadasa, who wanted to force the expulsion of the Indian Peacekeeping Force from Sri Lanka, and who was also using the LTTE to wipe out the JVP (People's Liberation Front) Sinhala insurgency...

"The LTTE reportedly has bought Russian-made Strela anti-aircraft missiles from Belgian arms dealers."

According to an article at Asian Times:

(http://www.atimes.com/atimes/South_Asia/DG13Df01.html)

Rajiv Gandhi, Prime Minister of India, was killed in 1991 by the Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers -Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

Justice Jain's final investigated the conspiracy to assassinate Gandhi.

He came across evidence that one suspect known as Chandraswami had links with the CIA and Mossad, and through them with the LTTE.

Justice Jain 'seems convinced' that Chandraswami was involved.

According to Asia Times:

Justice Jain 'has linked Chandraswami with the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) in which arms dealer Adnan Kashoggi, several terrorist groups, and intelligence outfits like the CIA and Mossad had accounts.

'The money in it was used for terrorist operations and political assassinations. The report is quoted as saying that $4 million of Mr Kashoggi's money was transferred to the LTTE's accounts. Justice Jain had said this on the basis of a 130-page document prepared by US Senator John Kiri.

'The commission quotes evidence of former cabinet secretary Zafar Saiffullah who said Chandraswami had links with Mossad and the CIA, and that the government had received intercepts of wireless communication between Israel (where Mossad is based) and Jaffna (where the LTTE was operating till recently) which established Chandraswami's involvement...

'Money transactions in Chandraswami's name and his links with international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi and the now defunct Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) have made the commission point an accusing finger...'

From Xymphora:

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/08/various-israeli-conspiracy-theories.html

"Israel trained the Sri Lankan resistance in the mid 1980's.

"The very first Tamil Tiger suicide attack was on July 5, 1987...

"Is it just possible that the technique of suicide bombing - now of course migrated to such places as New York, Iraq, and London - is the ultimate example of 'blowback', as it was taught to the Sri Lankans in the mid 1980's by the Israelis..."

Aangirfan:

Thank you for the post.

This post provides an example, a microcosm, of the geo-political maneuvers between the world's power blocks.

Strange that America via her trade & borrowing with China on the one hand is building China's economic might which allows it to make all these loans, and, then, with the other hand America is doing all it can to encircle China militarily, and, if possible disrupt & threaten their trade, and engage in these geo-political chess games.

But maybe not so strange:

For it allows a build-up of tension which sets the stage for military arms selling and justifying the Military-Industry Complex, which as America's economic might declines, seems to be all America has left to control the world.

This is a recipe for disaster to befall America.

"Burning the candle at both ends" makes more money for the Global Elite. A double game if you wll.

U. S. foreign policy seems intent to push China & Russia together setting up a military confrontation.

U. S. foreign policy in the past, at least in part, was to keep China and Russia from combining, taking advantage of the natural rivalry between the two due to their common border and historical antaganism.

I could go on.

But, again, thanks, Aangirfan, this is another piece of the puzzle that I would never see, if it wasn't for your blog. I try to cover the internet for new facts & evidence, information, but I can't cover it all, so, with your website, and others in cooperation, our knowledge of the truth builds.

Information is power.

P. S.: It is becoming clear to me that Britain's foreign policy, counter to popular conception, does not seem to benefit the American People (as opposed to the American Global Elite, who have little if any loyalty to the American Republic).

I like the British People, but I'm learning more and more that the British government and British Global Elite, are not to be repected, but, rather, need to be watched closely.
