Sri Lanka’s Nuclear Blackout

Ok…. its has been quite a long time since I blogged about anything in particular. Not feeling the urge to write as of late may be the main reason. Anyways, something happened last week that the entire country knows about. So I just thought I’d share a little theory I heard.

The thing that happened was the island wide blackout that lasted for a few hours. Now while everybody was painfully aware of the event thanks to the stifling heat and the voracious mosquitoes, I’m sure most people don’t know the real reason behind the blackout. I know the CEB issued a rather late statement blaming it on a technical failure, but maybe there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Now I know you’re wondering what other possible reason there could be, but if you look at the date it happened and the time it happened it may give you a bit of a clue. No, I’m not talking about some numerelogy rubbish here! What I’m talking about is the date and the time marked the visit of another world leader to our humble country. Namely, the president of Iran.

So, what does his visit have in the least to do with us contributing to the well being of Sri Lanka’s mosquitoes? Well, it’s pretty simple if you look at the backdrop to this visit. The Iranian President has promised to assist us with our power generation issues. Now while the promise made has so far been of a monetary nature, with looking to improve the existing infrastructure, our worthy leaders have more ambitious ideas brewing in their little heads.

Iran is one of the few Middle Eastern countries that is nuclear enabled. Now, can you just imagine the devious little plans that have been circulating in the minds of our countries leadership? The bottom line obviously would have been, let’s kiss up to Iran, who’s being getting a bit of a pariah status in the world, and maybe they’ll give us our very own nuclear power station to play with!

From that thought, it was just a small leap to think up a ‘grand’ scheme of how best to overplay our power crisis. And come up with the perfect solution, they did!

So, in comes Mr. Nuclear Power-plant’s flight, and everybody on board is surprised at the lack of any city lights. After landing safely, the delegation is even more surprised to note that right through their drive into the very heart of the capital city, there’s no lights! This situation was just too much for Mr. Nuclear Power-plant to handle in silence. Having played right into the hands of our scheming little locals, he innocently inquired as to why everything seemed to be in the dark. Pat came the reply from the well rehearsed government lackey in attendance….. “Aiyo Mr. Nuclear Power-plant sir, this a normal situation for our poor country. Millions are suffering because of no lights. If only we had a way to produce nuclear power, all the problems will be solved!”

So now you know the reason behind the blackout, It was a historical event called ‘Sri Lanka’s first nuclear blackout’

Interesting theory huh?

    I think you may have just hit the nail on the head! 🙂

    “being getting a bit of a pariah status in the world” … it seems countries that give this “status” like US, UK and Israel are higher up in the “Pariah status scale” than Iran.

    Why is it the world “law” that the west is “right” and their values are “right”? Is it because we have been colonised or is it because “might is right”?

    Hakim….. wasn’t agreeing or disagreeing with the ‘Pariah status’….. was just echoing what’s most in the news….. and also probably what was goingg through the devious litttle local minds.

    I thought it may have been over-zealous security arrangements, but your theory is more interesting!

    don’t u think a pariah state as u define them, might just be countries where there isn’t enough to eat for everyone, where law and order are weapons/quran/etc, human rights are non existent, corruption is miles higher than normal, services, hospitals, schools are absolute shite, media are in the hands of the clergy/politicians, roads, railways are crap etc? basically no basic freedom? if not, pls define them! of course no country is perfect, and the better ones are getting worse, but….
    and israel? wtf is israel gotta do with anything? since when does the fascist isralei state give licences to other countries? (not that any other coutry has the right to do so anyway)
    or is it that u r hakeem and therefore your anti sionist nature comes out?
    and yes, imo iran=shite for all the above, just like china adn more in the list. unfortunately these seem to be sl’s latest friends….

    Hmm… wouldn’t that make a great target for the LTTE – several birds with one blast. Reckon its highly unlikely that anyone would give us something as high profile and politically contentious as nuclear energy, although I guess its a pretty safe bet we wouldn’t have the capacity to take the step towards n. weaponry. Plus can we afford even getting rid of nuclear waste let alone buying the raw materials and creating energy?!?

  8. David Blacker Says:

    Actually, early Tuesday morning was the LTTE airraid on Welioya, and usually there are some test flights before such raids. Possible that the Security Forces detected these test flights and thought Ahm-a-nuclear-jihad was the target.

    I’m sure there was a logical explanation…..but thought this theory made more ‘funsense’……..!!
