    China will certainly support Srilanka for their own agenda.

    They have 100 times that number in the US and other western countries. So it is nothing to do with that but protecting their future colony.

    whats ironic is sri lanka is capitalist by nature and practice. yet we turn to china and Russia for help against US. capitalism is a dog eat dog world, beautiful isn't it?

    No wonder China is doing this out of self-interest, because of thwir own appaling human rights record and also with an eye for future colonisation of Sri Lanka.

    China is a not a democratic country. I have seen a documentary film about the plight of the garment workers in China..they treat them like slaves...

    If Chandrika and Ranil wasn't leading the country, there shouldn't have been any need for support from anybody. It was they who strengthened the Tiger which compelled us to seek the support of foreigners. Anyway nobody should forget the fact that it was the poor sons of the soil who made all the sacrifices with their flesh, blood and limbs and of course family life to eliminate tigers. China, Russia and Pak sold their weapons for profit. Meantime our politikkas became rich by getting commissions. This is the bitter truth.

    China and Russia can pre-empt US hegemony!

    Yes you are correct. Our Chinese & Russian supporters will experience it when they start to administrate us.
