True, Australia will become a predominantly Asian country, so what? I won't see it in my life time, & anyway I get on well with chinese etc, there R certain ethnic groups that cause problems here, they certainly aren't the Chinese, in my opinion i'm glad they're here!
Forsythe, civilizations have risen & fallen since the beginning of humanity, didn't U take history at school?
Some other race/culture will come to prominence here, & then in a few hundred years they'll be f*cked over by somebody else, way the world is mate, get used to it!

It doesn't really surprise me that the rice eaters flooded the country with Arms when the bullets started flying, they've been doing that in Africa for decades, not the biggest arms dealers, BUT THEY CERTAINLY HAVE THE SHIFTIEST BASTARDS AS CLIENTS!
1 thing U need to conduct a successful guerilla campaign is somebody sympathetic to help U fund it, maybe they should have approached Cuba or Libya, longtime sympathisers of many rebel causes!
Partitioning the Island was going to be my next question (as in Cyprus), but if the Sinhalese see themselves as being the true natives - & they have the upper hand, guess they're going to be very stubborn about it. Did the Sinhalese ever consider that as an option Going on the treatment of the journalists, & the laws preventing them bringing certain issues to the publics attention, i would have to agree that it does appear some very sinister events R being covered up!
Don't worry I'll let the demons in foreign affairs have it with both barrels for staying silent about it all for this long, bunch of pimps & crooks!

Most Sinhalese are descended form recently migrated South Indian Tamils who migrated to the island around 700 to 100 years ago. The Sinhalese castes of Karawe Slagama etc who make up around 50% of the presend day population are pirely descended from these racent South Indian tamil migratns who got converted to Buddhism and became Sinhalised during the last few centuries. The present day Sinhalese are 70% DNA South Indian Tamil. 25% Bengali DNA and 5% indigenous Australoid Veddah. SO they are nto indigenous as they try to potray themselves but are basically migratns. Whose language is spoken in the Island. The Sinhalese language is a mixture of Tamil Sanskrit and Pali. It is 35% Tamil and its grammer syntax and lexicon is pure Tamil. Sinhalese are largaly Tamil HIndus who got converted to Buddhism . So the Eelam Tamils have nothing to do with South India. It like asking the Austrians and Swiss Germans to move to Germany as they all speak German.

Thanks Siva,

Seems like it was business as usual up until 1948, but in the name of self interest & survival most will turn on their friends to save their own skin or further their own ends!

Golden rule is when the shit hits the fan keep an eye on the ppl closest to U, graveyards R usually full of ppl who got put there by their neighbours & friends!

Ceylon sounds like a state full of rich underworld morons in a trance of almost comical paranoia & fear, also sounds as if corruption is rife!

Maybe that's why they've locked all these ppl up!

Never understood why they didn't end up just partitioning the island myself?

This is a self fullfilling profeasy. First they say that the asylum seekers will come and hive people in South Asia ideas. Then when they come, Oz's catch them and put them in Christmas Island and make a big deal about it. The bottem line is they need people to come Oz.
Wake up u mornic human - yes we need people hear but we need them to work and pay taxes not live of the handouts and waste all our resources like our precious water. There is enough people comming here legally, that are willing to work hard and make an honest living - not people who come here and waite for free handouts. Wake up

The perception is that in Australia those who live off state handouts are the POMEs (Prisoners Of Mother England)

First hand information, from a Sri Lankan "Asylum seeker".
I am a fisherman, one of my friends was going to take a group of people to Australia on a boat, he just rang me a day before he left Sri Lanka, asked from me whether I'd like to join the group, wow... that sounds good, I can earn more over there, I said yes, paid 500000 LKR (5000A$), we were stopped in the sea by Sri Lankan Navy, had to bribe them with another 1000A$, still worth, they released us, finally, landed here in few weeks, we were given everything by Aussies, when I was asked why did you come to aussie, I was told not to tell, " to earn more", but I was told to tell them, "War/ genocide/ Asylum" the only English words I knew...
Wow this is a magic... Australia... here I come...
