    EVERYONE, should learn to respect International Law. The system of Sovereign states is an outdated, pre-modern system that is dysfunctional in the modern, international system of states. Sri Lanka, and most countries (except for rogue states)come under the jurisdiction of International Courts and the United Nations, if we have signed and ratified their authority. The world is slowly moving to stronger global governance, where individual states will no longer be accepted as guarantors of Human Rights and protection of civilians. A judgment of the International Courts should be applied as it is supreme to all other courts in the World. People who do not understand the International System should learn to do more of their research into the present system of global functioning. States have not agreed to their jurisdiction because of Dollars (what an absurd assumption) but because it is the norm and the obligation of states to do so in the modern era.

    Also, in response to someone`s suggestion to take arms because we do not need the dollars, and that we have the sufficient resources, etc, etc.. I would like to inform you that NO, we do not have the resources. Sri Lanka`s main natural resources are granite, phosphate, water (provided there is a good monsoon), rainforests and its ports. ALL these are insufficient to feed our people and bring about prosperity! Especially with our debt repayment per year exceeding totally government revenue, Sri Lanka owes ALOT of its continuing survival to the international community. If we do decide to pull the plug, stay out of the international system and refuse to pay our loans, not only will we die because we cannot survive on granite and phosphate, etc (once we pull the plug, no other country will accept our exports - why should they, if we don`t accept theirs?!), all countries whom we owe money too will have the right to forcefully invade and gain access of properties or resources in the land that equate to the total amounts owed. And with the amounts owed equaling a large sum of our GDP - we are talking about great proportions of our country. Your decision to take up arms will take you and this country only to a deeper grave.

    It is too late to pull the plug, or whatever you call it. We are a nation in debt and the only way to get out is to bring peace, prosper and repay it all back. Otherwise, like I have said before, Sri Lanka will be an empty land, providing space for migrating birds to land on...
