    [The United States said yesterday said that there would be no major change in the US policy regarding Sri Lanka following the election of Barack Obama (a Democrat) as the 44th US President.]

    Thats what blake says... usually American diplomats change after there is a new president... lets see for how long Blake will stay in Sri Lanka before getting transferred...

    [The United States said yesterday said that there would be no major change in the US policy regarding Sri Lanka following the election of Barack Obama (a Democrat) as the 44th US President.]

    That`s far too obvious. SL has nothing to offer to US and therefore, the US policy towards SL will largely remain the same.

    But, should SL`s Oil search succeed, then the yankees will take note of SL and then, it will be a different story altogether.

    [Soon after Obama s victory, Foreign Minister Rohita Bogollagama told the Daily Mirror that Obama s election as the next US President was a major transformation of the political landscape of the US and his win was a victory for the world.]

    This guy has a way of opening his big mouth to prove beyond doubt that he knows nothing about anything. How stupid he is to think that Obama`s election is `major transformation of the political of the US.`

    You dimwit, US policies are formulated by powerful plutocrats and zionists. Of late, the Christian Right also has joined the powerful coterie. The President has little, if at all, room to maneuver unless he decides against serving a full term.

    Blake has been a very open-minded diplomat, the best US Ambassador we had during this conflict. Obama should keep him
