Egypt - Sri Lanka talks on petroleum

  • 12 Apr 2007 07:02:52 GMT

    Is Fowzy trying to make few bucks????

    As far as I know Our engineers are much better than egyptians. Egyptians have a big body but a tiny brain and in the technical field they are second to everyone.

    Other question, is egypt a significant oil producing country???? I dont think so.

    So blind is trying to lead blind.

    We culd do a lot better than sending our young scientists & engineers to Egypt .. to learn about exploration and extraction of petroleum from deep-sea reserves. Egyptians do not have very much knowledge in this area of activity, and are not known to have training centers for this purpose. (To be fair by Fowzie, he may have been mis-quoted .. it is possible he was only talking about expanding refinery capacity, and training `refinery` technologists, in Egypt).

    The United Kingdom is still a `good bet` for studies in Petroleum Technology. MR should use his new found friend-ship with Mr Blair, to open the way for training of petroleum technologists & engineers in the UK. Other countries we could `tap` for knowledge are - USA, Canada, Australia, Russia, China, Norway .. (I have placed Norway last, as they seem to have come in to SL as `peace brokers`, however have taken-up a `special` relation-ship with the LTTE .. they now seem intent on `carving-up` SL into `two parcels`, to suit their own ends. Simply put, they ca`nt be trusted ..).

    I can understand your concern .. You say Norwegians are `cunning` .. that means they hide their true intentions. Norwegians carry with them a `latent sense` of Aryan Supremacy .. of the kind Hitler advocated. (Norwegians joined with Germans in WWII, to promote this culture of `racial supremacy`).

    So, how do you explain the current Norwegian policy of `accommodation` for Tamils from Sri Lanka ? (As I understand it, there is no similar `welcome-mat` put out for the Sinhalese).

    My guess is that - it is Norwegian Govt policy to consolidate their `position` in Sri Lanka, so that they may be in the `best` position to exploit petroleum reserves to be found off-shore (and probably `on-shore`, also), Sri Lanka. They wish to be seen sympathetic to the Tamil `cause` for Separation .. mean-while retain contact with `leaders` in the South (who will `side` with them - for monetary concerns) .. and at an opportune time emerge to deal with a politically weak Govt in the South, and another in the N&E .. with whom they can have a `special` relation-ship. (In the end it is summed-up in `oil-dollars`).

    So what happened to the talks srilanka had with the USA, India, china, Iran and Norway?

    did they say there is no oil in lanka? or there is oil deposits in lanka but we will not dig unless the war is ended??

    OH dear oh dear? now Egypt? next Somalia in the list! by the way Zimbabwe and Uganda are not far away from EGYPT and should be added to the srilankan list of *TO BE BEGGED IN* nations. :))

    [..did they say there is no oil in lanka? or there is oil deposits in lanka but we will not dig unless the war is ended?? ]

    Do`nt worry too much, about these things .. we`ll end the war, and start digging for oil, soon ..

    (Expect to see `our own` oil flowing thro` nozzles in retail outlets in SL, within 3 years, at the out-set ..)

    [.. we will win the war ]

    As I recall, this was the LTTE `marching song`. You can sing it at the top of your voice, all day long .. but it will do you `no good`. Better give-up this mind-set, and agree to `power-devolution`. (Get your TNA parliamentarians to take-up `actively` with SL Govt .. as for power-devolution).
