  1. This reminds me of how rampant inflation and unemployment of Germans due to the Great Depression led to Hitler’s rise in power. Weimar Republic was a joke by then. Germany couldn’t sustain a democracy anymore.
    German currency was a joke because the paper money was worthless due to rampant inflation.

    People are gonna get very angry due to inflation of basic goods and will find a crutch to blame. I hope they don’t target a ethnic group. I don’t want another civil war.

    The Romans blamed Commodous for the grain supply shortage which increased grain prices because the idiot ruler appointed the wrong advisor as minister. History is repeating itself with the incompetence of the Rajpaksa Government. People are rioting. Let’s pray that there is no grain shortage.

    Praying for all Sri Lankans who are hit with this crisis. Praying that they are safe and protecting themselves from the chaos.

    Shame on the Rajpaksa Government and biggest joke of a President Rajpaksa himself. I would like to ask one question, what was the cowardly President doing all the time during the crisis? He’s literally selling the people of Lanka by asking for a IMF bailout.

    Why are people of Lanka silent and why did they tolerate this all the time?

    It takes a pandemic to realize that Lanka was in trouble. LOL. All Rajpaksa cares about is power. What do the people of Sri Lanka want?

  2. Don't give current government a penny.
    All dollars in Uganda rajapakse family members vault in Dubai.,Uganda, seashells, us and other countries all poor people hard earned money 💰.
    Please don't spare any money 🙏.

  3. Nope, these morons borrowed money from China and now are in a debt trap. Let them deal with their own problem.

  4. Dread it, Run From it, Destiny Arrives the same.
    Bailout should not be given, they don't deserve it, what they've done can't be undone

  5. Hit and run: sri lankans hit rock bottom and, now, they run to a rich country for some relief.

  6. Be still Lanka loves china, not india
    China's foreign reserve is $3.87 trillion means more than India's GDP wow 😮

  7. Why rush of to USA…better to make a deal with all the friend's of countries and get a small loan from all and get rid of the debt…this will also help with future trade with these countries. USA will always demand more as profits is all the USA wants

  8. I used to make comment when watching news about China government involeved in the developing-work in Hambantota not to trust China's.

  9. Even USD100bils wont help Srilanka as a Bailout monies until these two brothers are in power with their corruption team

  10. IMF may give money but the solution lies within Sri Lanka , for a while the country shall have to live with everything less including food and medicine .

  11. Time for electing a new monarchist dynasty that will pay all of the country’s debt…just like in the case of Sweden(where the Bernadotte pay the half of debt) & Yamato(when they pay all the Korean Empire’s debt).♥️♥️♥️ Are there any rich Lankan dreaming for a crown. Then create a treaty where the 80% of the profit will go for the development of the Lankan people. While the remaining 20% will go as a government fund of running a constitutional monarchy. A monarch that will be a political neutral monarch that will act as an arbiter amidst partisan politics. By doing this kind of thing the political vacuum that always happened every election will be lessened. Then after that let the monarch create a sovereign wealth fund. A fund that is not under the jurisdiction of a prime minister or president or any political figure. A fund that is under the custodianship of a Lankan monarch.

    1.) Monarchy Vs Republics by Prof. Mauro Guillen World London Forum 2021-2022
    2.) The true cost of royal family by CGP Grey
    3.) Debt Succession by Sidequest

    Edit: Just an idea. You can take it and also can decline 😇

  12. Elon Musk should bail out Srilanka instead of Twitter. Name it Lanka X and you got a new found home for a new alien race.

  13. The US will ask srilankan government, a military base on srilankan soil as a remuneration fee .
    China would debt trap a nation, the US would put their military base in foreign soil to trap that nation.

  14. Nope. US has money to spend on countries to Invade.

    Sri Lanka doesn't have much, so US won't "help"

  15. India, Bangladesh, Nepal & Pakistan should help Sri Lanka financially as much as possible to get them out of this ridiculous debt as they are our neighbours.

  16. How come a country can grossly fail like this? There were indications and warning by international agencies. The citizens should have reacted immediately and toppled the government. The family which was ruining the country should be imprisoned.
    Skilled Srilankans please earn money from abroad and increase the foreign remittances by spending less in overseas. You guys do well in Garments and Tea industry. Foreign investors should prefer a Srilankan, Afghani and Ukrainian in recruitment. World is a nice place to live if all of us support each other during crisis

  17. America throwing money at ukraine & others while ignoring & refusing to pay reparations to blacks

  19. Sri-Lanka has asked the IMF for help 16 times in the last 52 years.

    Only nine of the IMF programs were completed.

    The Rajapaksa regime wasted two years by refusing to seek help from the IMF, while talking big about a home-grown solution.

    The IMF should give them strong medicine and make sure that they take all the doses as instructed!

    If they fail to complete the IMF program this time, they will be back again with similar or worse problems in a few years.


  21. If Modi keeps giving our tax payer rupees to Adani, Ambani etc and forgiving their loans our finance Minister needs to visit IMF soon.

  22. Old old story . " We spent all our money buying votes. Now we need more from somebody to fix our economy. How else can we build another presidential palace otherwise ? "

  23. You can give a country trillions if the money are being stolen and shared between politicians there s never ending loop. Im not sure but that s why the planet is so dumb stop putting corrupted and idiots at the top of the chain and you don't need to barrow anymore or that much.

  24. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end there are 7 years. Near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate." Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days." Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, the signs of the sixth seal match the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His presence, 2 Thessalonians 2:7 MEV

    (Obs: Who is restraining the antichrist? Who is stopping the antichrist from rising? The elect; those who are saved and sealed by the Holy Spirit because of the Christ! When the elect are raptured, the antichrist will take over. Rapture will trigger the great tribulation and the government of the antichrist.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen near the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous is rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked. "like a thief in the night" means it will happen when you do not expect. "heavens will pass away" means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many people travel to many places and knowledge is increased.)

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold, the Lord of lords is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — move away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
