In the fast emerging China-centric world order there's no more space for international bullies.

A fortnight ago China told India keep off the internal issues of the Maldives and India obeyed.

I hardly doubt that. Most of the Chinese are atheists. They are too mechanical, work like robots. We should be happy have better genes in the country.

As soon as Chinese interests are endangered in Sri Lanka, a military intervention must be expected. Whoever makes a pact with the devil loses all.

Does any bank in Sri Lanka lend money to anyone without security? No. Similarly anyone who lends money to Sri Lanka will except some sort of security. Sri Lanka is a banana republic. Now it needs to borrow to pay its past debits plus without any proper economic system, a proper development plan,increasing expenses,corruption and racial violence Sri Lanka will need to borrow more.Lenders know that Sri Lanka wont be able to pay but still they lend. Because in the end Sri Lanka will have to sell its assets to these lenders to settle their loans. No one is our friend. We should be our own friends. Get together and build our country and get out from borrowing habit.Singapore did it. Bolivia has done it.
