We always knew the Defense Ministry had a slush fund – Now we know why?
The Ministry of Defense like the CIA have slush funds
for various controversial projects aimed at reinforcing the defenses of the nation
and whether we like it or not most countries in the world have such funds to defend
the interests of the country.
I now question if the Defense Ministry is in the business
of attacking the nation and not defending it. After all this action directly attacks
the country and calls for people to create chaos within Sri Lanka leading to destabilization.
So is it a covert ploy by the US by using its most famous citizen in Sri Lanka,
the Secretary of the Ministry of Defense to attack Sri Lanka and destabilize and
the latest weapon being the divisive Bodu Bala Sena lobby which is trying to make
people believe that there is a conspiracy against the Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka
to somehow attack it! These kinds of fear mongering breeds, race hate which in turn
leads to racial tension and finally to a bloody race based riot.
It is of course in the interests of the Govt. to prevent
such action. So is the defense ministry part of the Government or a private army
of the Defense Secretary bent on destroying the Sri Lankan state at the instigation
of the USA?
I don’t have answers to those questions, but they
create questions that require answers. It is therefore imperative that, earlier
it was supposed to be foreign funded NGOs that were giving the Bodu Bala the needed
juice to function, and now it appears that there is a foreign hand within the Ministry
of Defense. Is that one and the same thing? We must destroy this cancer before it
I appeal to the citizens of the country not to be
fooled by these desperate acts of people with agendas outside the interests of Sri
Lanka and not to get taken in by their false declarations. We must do all we can
to preserve the oneness of our nation along with the Diversity that creates its
rich heritage. Those that seek to destroy this great nation for personal ends MUST
BE STOPPED at all cost.
If we don’t it is the future of the nation that is
at stake. All through this blog it is the integrity of Sri Lanka that I have tried
to preserve along with Sri Lanka taking its rightful position amongst the nation
states of the world. It is the Govt. that is bent on destroying this goal, and let
us not permit these traitors any more mileage.
