US is the most insecure country in the world-Wimal

26 July 2012 11:17 pm - 97     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister Wimal Weerawansa yesterday said that United States was the most insecure nation in the world.

Speaking at the International Cuban Solidarity Day which was held at the Sawsiripaya in Colombo, Weerawansa said, “The country which is the most insecure in this world is US. They live with an insecure mentality. That is why the American police have imprisoned five Cuban patriots while labelling them as terrorists when those people have done nothing wrong.” (Jayashika Padmasiri)

    Then why is Sri Lanka depending on aid, World Bank, and IMF, all financed by the "insecure" US?
    Wimal keeps biting the hands that feed us, was his visa turned down? He seems to constantly pick on the US.
    One thing is for sure, the US also had idiot politicians who keep shooting their mouths, and looking like fools.

    Minister these days American coup is against us, Don't you smell it. Demonstrations against government, You can make Counter Demonstrations from Kankasanthurei to Dondra.

    Wimal doen not have Degree or PHD. Only empty mouth!

    An old saying comes to mind.
    'People who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others'

    peeda mossa Friday, 27 July 2012 01:26 PM

    There is another side to the story. US depends a lot on mid-east oil, and despite keeping a huge stockpile, they create divisions in oil rich countries to siphon off the valuable resource at their whim. What's more, China has invested trillions of dollars in the US economy. So , the Minister may be correct in the sense that economically the US is vulnerable.

    Godagampala Rohana Friday, 27 July 2012 01:24 PM

    The most Superior Minister is Weerawansa as he is called the Dhoby of Mahinda.

    Godagampala Rohana Friday, 27 July 2012 01:14 PM

    W'wansa has no right to talk anything about USA as this nutty has nothing in his head, so forgive this cronic.

    I think he know well about insecure!! This is the reason he does not use a Maruti anymore.
    I am sure all of you remember this guy said that when they come to power they will use the small Maruti cars. May be he thought this car was not save and secure.
    May be he does not trust his own comb and this is why he go to hi-fi salons to get his make up and hair done.
    The Donkeys are the people who vote him in

    There is a common perception that a donkey is a stupid animai but that it should not open its mouth and bray to prove it to all and sundry.

    What an enlightened person!!
    No wonder the country is going down the drain.

    Em Friday, 27 July 2012 06:13 PM

    Why don't you add a comment in front of a US delegation somewhere like UN assemblies, rather than talking in house like a man.

    jayantha Friday, 27 July 2012 05:42 PM

    That why so many sri lankan are asylum seekers in USA becuse of sri lanka is one of the most insecure land in asia.

    Fassey Friday, 27 July 2012 04:22 PM

    Mr. Weerawansa, please make Sri Lanka a secure place for little girls who are raped and killed before commenting on US

    Wijeweera Friday, 27 July 2012 04:11 PM

    Minsiter, which country do you refer to as US??

    Gamaya Friday, 27 July 2012 03:42 PM

    Yes that's the reason Rajapakse family (your Boss) has green card in the USA, and mind you, your favorite booze Jack Daniel is made in USA .

    Premalal Friday, 27 July 2012 03:56 PM

    I am sure that even the Cubans are amused.

    Ranjith Friday, 27 July 2012 03:38 PM

    Yes it may be some time back three idiot's returned from US and playing fool with us in Sri lanka.

    Karipora Friday, 27 July 2012 03:19 PM

    When Cubans show resistance, they are Patriots...and not terrorist. but when Sri lankan Tamils were fighting for's terrorism. what a double standard. this clown is good for winding up the illiterate masses and shoulder strapping with rouge country leaders. why dont you stop using all the american made product, from coke to computers. !!!!!

    Ossie Friday, 27 July 2012 03:23 PM

    Mr Modawansa, Australia may be the 2nd unsecured country. That's why we see in the news that almost everyday people are trying to go there by fishing trawlers. If US award Green Cards to Srilankans without any restriction you may see how many people want to go to that unsecured country. Two prominent character of the present government also were residing there and still holding citizenship in that unsecured country.

    dalu Banda Friday, 27 July 2012 04:12 AM

    I remember the recent cartoon published during the workers agitation against the Hon Minister against the selling of SEC lands. Please remember that the USAID could fund the trade unions again.

    Raj Friday, 27 July 2012 04:58 AM

    So who is on your left? :D

    Soon Cuba will be with USA.Already Cuba have expressed their willingness to discuss problems with USA. Then let see what Wimal Weerawansa going to say.

    Jan Chandra Friday, 27 July 2012 04:35 AM

    Well said Minister. US is a gun ho place. It is unsafe even to step out to the streets. The irony however is that US happily intervenes and kills millions of innocent civilians to safeguard peace and safety in other countries.

    Alex Friday, 27 July 2012 04:34 AM

    correct, the most unsecure is us (not US), that means sri lankans

    The expert on US affairs has opened his big mouth again. This guy is a real joker and obviously does not live in the real world. Well no Sri Lankan politician does. However this guy is very special when it comes to stupidity.Jayawewa!!!

    Kautilya Friday, 27 July 2012 04:21 AM

    Amanda De Silva Friday, 27 July 2012 03:43 AM

    Well said dass, he needs to remember that when he points fingers at other countries three fingers are pointing at him. typical Sri Lankan politicians.

    Daya Friday, 27 July 2012 03:42 AM

    Sad I havent got a chance to hear this from cubans ever before. Talking to SL and talking in an international conference are 2 different things. Why our ministers not realized that when uttering something.

    casmir Friday, 27 July 2012 03:54 AM

    well said Mr. Intelligent minister Sri Lanka is so lucky to have Ministers like you keep it up ...

    CW Friday, 27 July 2012 09:58 AM

    He is entitled to his opinion wheter you agree or not. Why do these people who criticise WW do not utter a word when others criticise China & Russia?
