America’s Indian Ocean Bases, US Geneva Resolution, British way of subverting justice and Cameron’s Hypocrisy

“Sri Lanka’s new port built at Hambantota figures very much in this discussion. If India, Japan or South Korea would have built the port infrastructure there as they have been engaging in neighboring Iran, no questions could have arisen for the US or India over security threat in the Indian Ocean. It is precisely because it was China that built the infrastructure that the security issues have been raised both by US and India. The latter was quickenough to establish a Consulate-General at Hambantota even before the first ship rrived in the new harbor. It is then the adversarial position and a conceived military aggressiveness on the part of China which US and India see in China which is at the bottom of US/ Indian assessment of China’ infrastructure building activities in Myanmar, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan”
