Nauru’s Downfall from Rich Nation to Poverty

News, September 26, 2014

It’s a deeply troubled nation that has been plunged into a nightmare scenario, struggling with a failed economy, health crisis and the destruction of its natural beauty. But life wasn’t always like this in Nauru.

At just 21 square kilometres, it’s the smallest island nation in the world and has a population of just over 10,000. Yet this former British colony, which lies approximately 4000km from Sydney in the Pacific Ocean, was once so prosperous that it was the envy of the entire world.

And it was all thanks to bird poo.

We’re not kidding. The discovery of huge deposits of fossilised bird poo that had accumulated for over 1000 years changed this nation forever. It made for an excellent fertiliser and sparked a huge mining effort, first by foreign companies, then by the islanders themselves in 1968 when they achieved independence from Britain.

By 1980 Nauru had become the wealthiest nation on the planet, per capita. A monumental achievement for such a tiny, remote island.

Rolling in riches, the locals abandoned their traditional lifestyles and turned to unhealthy food, alcohol and cigarettes.

It wasn’t long before a health crisis hit, and hard.

Life expectancy plunged to just 50, while rates of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses skyrocketed along with their waistlines. In 2007, 94.5 per cent of its residents were identified by the World Health Organisation as overweight, and 71.7 per cent obese–the highest rate in the world. It was overtaken in the obesity stakes by Mexico in 2013.

These days, Nauru has the highest prevalence of type-two diabetes in the world, affecting 31 per cent of adults.

That was just the start of their problems. The phosphates ran out in the early 1980s, along with the nation’s primary income source.

With so much of the island mined, all that was left was an environmental wasteland riddled with decay. The damage is so severe that 75 per cent of the country is uninhabitable.

While Nauru was formerly known as “Pleasant Island” due to its lavish tropical vegetation, it’s a harsh reality that it no longer lives up to this name.

Many residents had quit their jobs and went on huge spending sprees including expensive holiday and shopping trips, and importing sports cars–even a Lamborghini. So there was little cash left.

“Hardly anyone thought of investing the money. Dollar notes were even used as toilet paper,” a local told the BBC. “It was like every day was party day.”

{snip}

Now, many homes are run down, and those sports cars are rusted wrecks.

With little financial options, in 2001 Nauru entered into an agreement with Australia to house a detention centre in return for foreign aid, on which they became reliant. As of this year, that amount Australia provides is $27.1 million.

    That’s what we in the bigotsphere call “n***a-rich,” though it this case it would be Nauru-rich.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Hey look! Fat Pacific negroes!

      The look like ’em, live like ’em, die like ’em.

      I’m calling a spade a spade on this one. Case closed.

        In the South Pacific, Caribbean and other cultures, obesity is synonymous to wealth and good health. Skinny people are considered poor, under-fed, and sick. My tour guide in Fiji was a slim soccer player. The really fat girls at the hotel would shake their heads, “Poor John…so skinny. he needs to gain some weight”. There is a fair amount of crime on Fiji, but I liked most of the people I met. They are quite different than black Americans. I know this is Nauru, but the culture is similar.

        • propagandaoftruth

          So they’re fat and happy and not in need of too many handouts because they’ve yet to blow their big bird poop fortune on twinkies, booze and smokes? Because they get by on tourism? I mean, given my druthers I’d much rather go to “Fiji” than “Nauru”, I’ll admit.

          Bird poop or no. They’re not Muslim, at least, so fat and brown and not unpleasant and happy sounds like good times – in Fiji.

          • newscomments70

            I didn’t want to go too much off topic, but I admire Fijians for standing up for their own. In Fiji, foreigners aren’t allowed to buy property. There is a small Indian population on the island. Some have been there for generations. The Indians are not allowed to own property nor are they given full rights as citizens. Many would love to buy up all of the property and import millions of their relatives. Wealthy Asians and whites would love to build mansions on this Island paradise, as well. The Fijians stop them. None of that is allowed. The land is set aside for Fijians’ homes and nature. Also, gay marriage is not allowed. They are devout Christian country. Why can’t whites have the same human rights? Why can’t whites have the basic collective common sense to preserve themselves? Fijians may be third world and have black African features, but they are far ahead of whites in common sense.

          • Shadrach

            We can only dream of such things…I guess Whites are not seen as Humans in the eyes of the savages.

          • newscomments70

            I’m sure opinions vary amongst non whites. Our problem is that white liberals and white neo-conservatives (liberals) do not consider whites human.

          • Shadrach

            Such sad times we live in.

            The US government protects the US Mariannas Islands in the same way; protecting the natives from being overrun and bought out by foreigners, yet they welcome foreigners to do that to US citizens of European ancestry; the ones who built the US! And to add insult to injury, they give those foreigners affirmative action and hand-outs!

          • propagandaoftruth

            Hey I apologize if I’ve sounded dismissive or crass. You’ve spent some time in Fiji and probably made some friends with some of the natives (great idea if you plan to return, I say) and I’m sure there are many fine brown Fijians in Fiji.

            I guess we all have our pet brownies. I’m sure they’re not really as bad as Bantus, and I’d probably get along even better with them than I do with civilized and even semi-feral American blacks.

            I guess I’m just so fed up with the fool’s quest of searching for some form of magical brownie, especially kinky haired negro looking magical brownie, that although I believe you and respect your opinion…

            Well…OK…cool. These brownies indeed appear to have more sense than those brownies, who for that matter still seem to have more sense than most Bantu negroes, or than just about any eloi libtard.

            Great! Happy for ’em. Sounds like a great place to get away from being hated for being White. Or is it? I don’t know. Never been there.

          • newscomments70

            Fiji, like any third world nation, is not perfect. There is some crime and you can be targeted for being a white tourist. Outside of the two cities, you are mostly ok. It is much safer than Detroit, Newark, Atlanta, etc, which is basically suicide to enter. I am a race realist, which means I believe that there are good and bad in every race. It’s the percentages that vary. Fiji is a beautiful place to see, and people live the simple life there. It’s not that developed and the natural beauty is stunning. If you walk through the forest, natives will mostly approach you to say hello, not to rob you. (unlike Hawaii) The country is pro-Christian, and it doesnt seem anti-white. They are socially conservative and don’t care much for gays. I basically admire how they stand up for their own. Whites, who are supposedly collectively more intelligent, are trying to exterminate their own race. We are not even neutral. We are trying to exterminate ourselves. If we are more intelligent, why is this happening?

          • propagandaoftruth

            Even with industrious magical brownies, I suspect a large portion of their pots of gold consists of our gold. Fiji…France still? Don’t the French Hollandaise White hating socialists love sending bling to nice overseas magical brownies?

            Well…the views look breathtaking, even for a socialist. And so many magical brownies! Maybe take some home papa? Please!!!!!

          • newscomments70

            I believe Tahiti was French and Fiji was Great Britain. Fiji still has the Union Jack still on their flag. White liberals in Australia want to eliminate the Union Jack from their flag to embrace multiculturalism. The new and improved flag would look like a snot rag after a bad cold. Again, this is an example of white liberals being even more anti-white than dark skinned people. New Zealand has been involved with Fiji for years…and yes, many Fijians have immigrated to New Zealand. Polynesians regulary terrorize whites on the North island of New Zealand. I’m not sure what the exact statistics are. I know some groups are worse than others.

          • propagandaoftruth

            I was being lazy, could have wiki’d it, but sure, Brits even worse.

            Ever read about their attempts to spread the gospel and the miracle of fire to the Andaman Islanders? Whoooeeee!

            Some Bantu appearing negrito types are a lot closer to the motherland geographically as well as genetically, it seems. Very complex, very simple.

          • newscomments70

            In Fiji, the first Christian missionaries were eaten by local cannibals. I love that story. Christian missionaries have brought hundreds of thousands of third worlders into the US…many are violent criminals/rapists. I wish the Fijians would eat some more missionaries.

          • John R

            Thank you. People are always looking for an example of an advanced race of people that isn’t White, but are as good as Whites. Sorry, won’t happen. We are as good as humanity gets.

          • newscomments70

            I don’t think they’re advanced or the “same” as whites. Races are not equal. I am only saying that I admire their will to preserve their own.

          • Bantu_Education

            Fijian Indians are almost 40% of the population, hardly a “small population”.

          • newscomments70

            True. That makes me admire the tenacity even more.

        • Bantu_Education

          Unless I’m mistaken, Fijians are Melanesians, Nauruans are Polynesian.

          • newscomments70

            I spoke generally. The South Pacific does cover Polynesia. Not all Polynesians are nice. Samoans can be extremely racist and violent. They make Hawaii a dangerous place for whites. They also attack whites in Utah. They were brought there by Mormom missionaries.

          • Bantu_Education

            True, the experience of the great navigators bears that out. Some islands were friendly, notably Tahiti and Hawaii (both were discovered late in the day) although Captain Cook might beg to differ with the latter group. Samoans were always bad news, then and now. Maoris likewise. Tonga, on the other hand, was called the “friendly isles”.

          • Naurutards are actually a mix of the two.

          • newscomments70

            Dually noted. That’s why you have “education” in your name.

          • newscomments70

            It looks like we are both righ to some degree. According to wikipedia: “The population of Fiji is mostly made up of native Fijians, who are Melanesians (54.3%), although many also have Polynesian ancestry”. They are mostly Melanesian though.

    This is what would happen if American blacks got the reparations $$$ they think they deserve. It would be one big party until they were broke again. Then they’d be demanding to be rescued by the more responsible.

    • Anglokraut

      That is why reparations must require repatriation. They take the cash, and they have to leave. We keep their biometrics to ensure a quick deportation once the poverty inevitably returns, and they beg to “come home”.

      • haroldcrews

        No, first they leave THEN they get paid.

        • Paleoconn

          The check is in the mail. Too bad the postman is black.

      • Jack Burton

        They’ve already been paid reparations in the assistance we’ve given them and the cost of having them in our society. The criminal damage cost of blacks is extremely high.

        Repatriation itself is expensive, something that massive of an undertaking wouldn’t be free.

        I’m in favor of a combination of repatriation and creating a Bantustan, possible more than one, for blacks to have partial sovereignty over, similar to what South Africa did and what we’ve done with the native Amerindian tribes.

        However, in reality, more likely if we ever could separate, there would still be plenty of retarded liberals who will believe their nonsense for untold generations. So rather there would be a white ethnostate separate from the mentally ill, multiracial quasi-nation run by white liberals with a death wish and many more blacks and third worlders.

        Wouldn’t you love to watch them go down in flames while we enjoy ourselves in peace and harmony in an all-white nation? That would make for great TV.

            Relocate them to Haiti and use it as a staging area for the return to the Motherland.

            Haiti should be cleansed of the black pestilence too – that was one the most beautiful island in the Caribbean.

          • bilderbuster

            That’s the beauty of using Haiti as a staging area/processing center/transfer hub.
            Transfer them in from North America and out along with the non-White populations of the Bahama’s & Bermuda too.

          Oh, yeah, I agree—we should’a picked our own cotton, cuz it’s cost us a WHOLE LOT since those days, with welfare, food stamps, Section 8, free healthcare, sex-transmitted diseases, free food at schools, dumbing down schools so blacks can keep up (and still can’t), corrupting society’s morals, on and on and on—and they’re still bitchin”. NAACP=nat’l. association of always complainin’ people! Wonder what the Chinese would have done if they were in our shoes? (sarc)

          • Jack Burton

            We should have, but that wouldn’t have stopped what is happening now. More blacks have immigrated to America in the last 50 years than we ever took as slaves.

          • SentryattheGate

            Yes, sadly you’re correct! And not only is Africa projected to have 4 times their current population in the next few decades, they are expected to be one of the 3 main sources of US immigration (Nigerians, Chinese and Indians). Throughout history, people had to fight to take another’s territory, now they just outbreed us, we lie down like (politically-correct) doormats and let them stroll through the door (as they holler “racism” and order up all the perks)!

          • ghettovalley

            The Chinese would probably have taken the Mao approach long ago. Can’t say that I would disagree.

        • bilderbuster

          The White Liberal states will still be a danger like the Republican Abolitionists of the North were against the South or the Jewish dominated Churchill and Roosevelt governments of the British Empire and the US against Germany.

        • Bantu_Education

          Great idea – put 10% liberals and 90% blacks on a “Redemption Island” and let them be. Great TV programme – does Jeff Probst have any spare time to host it? I nominate John McEnroe, I recall he fronted some rather sadistic reality programme.

      • Chris Granzow XI

        The government and school system should’ve presented Marcus Garvey as the primary-quintessential “hero” to black people, instead of MLK, Malcolm X, etc. That way they could try to repatriate them in the future without receiving such a strong backlash.

      • Bantu_Education

        Don’t waste aircraft – return them by sea the way they came. Lots of rusty old vessels on the scrap market – 10,000 per ship is ideal – the Germans put 20,000 or more on small cruise ships during the evacuation of Konigsberg in E.Prussia. All 3 ships were eventually sunk by Russian subs it was the 3 biggest loss of lives in all maritime history. How many people know that today? The sheeple have only heard of the Titanic (1500 lost) compared to at least 10,000 on the Wilhelm Gustloff alone..

    • Eric Shun

      Comedian Dave Chappell did a hilarious skit on this.

      • ghettovalley

        I hate black comedians because every joke is about race in some way. Blacks seem to obsess over it. Almost every skit on that entire show was racial in some way.

        • SentryattheGate

          Check out this “hilarious” Indian comedian, Hari Kondabolu (see Amazon(dot)com) . His “comedy” is based, of course, on racism against Indians. His CD is titled “Waiting for 2042” (when whites will be a minority in the US) the cover photo is very “telling”: http://www.amazon(DOT)com/Waiting-2042-Hari-Kondabolu/dp/B00IB2S880/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1411784607&sr=1-1&keywords=waiting+for+2042

          • SentryattheGate

            Sewer is right! Although India’s economy has been ~10% growth, while our’s is <1-2%, they don't even care enough about their own that 2/3rd's of (1.7 billion) Indians have no toilets, and indoor plumbing! A friend of mine went to India; he said that even in cities, people just drop their pants along the sidewalks and poop (even men in suits)! He said the kids of the "untouchables" caste get paid (poorly) for scooping it up, with their hands into tin cans!!!

          • SentryattheGate

            NPR, surprise!, hosted this Indian “comedian” (white-hater). Here’s a review from Amazon: Very well written. I heard some of it on Fresh Air on NPR, and I immediately knew I’d like him…and I did! He was witty, and ironic. Definitely hit the nail on the head from a minorities perspective in the US. He obviously has a great amount of historical and social science knowledge, in which he uses in his comedy, It might offend some people, but who doesn’t sometimes?Great buy! Thanks for the laugh Hari!

          True, but the bit in the reparations skit where ghetto blacks are lined up around the block at the check-cashing joint with their million dollar checks in hand.

          Also the part about Pepsico and GM skyrocketing on the backs of record KFC and Esclade sales made me chuckle. And the news reporter, “I tell you Chet, these negroes just can’t wait to give all this money right back to us!”

    • Jack Burton

      This would be what happens if blacks were to govern themselves without white assistant.

      Notice how the Nauru are now dependent on white financial assistance to survive.

      Their president looks like 5 pounds of sht in a 3-pound sack.

    The common thread to most of these third world countries is that they became failed states once the Europeans pulled out. The leftist narrative is how evil European colonization was but just look what happened to Africa once the whites left.

      Of course, because the economy, housing, government and infrastructure were all created by Europeans. When Europeans leave the native savages can’t possible maintain, much less improve what was done for them.

      A lot of them are resentful as well. They hate it because they know it comes from the white man, it’s a really primitive and pathetic form of jealousy. You hear from Australians how the Abos will actually destroy buildings that white Australians built for them to live in, because Abos would rather live outside and take the mattresses outside in the dirt to sleep under the stars.

        So, in an island that is inhabited by dark skinned natives, the most valuable thing, even more valuable than the people, is the sh*t? Sorry, again, I can’t get off this topic. So many jokes that could be told here.

        • bilderbuster

          The officer hemmed and hawed and kind of danced around the question and was way too much of a suck up in my opinion.
          An island tipping over like a rubber raft is something only a retarded mind could even imagine.
          Instead of replying “You can’t possibly be serious?” the officer tried to answer the question like it wasn’t totally moronic even though it was probably the dumbest question he had ever been asked in his entire life.

  • Michael Robert Ryan

    I remember reading an article about Nauru years ago (I think it might have been in Reader’s Digest) when they were still very prosperous. The whole point of the article was how flabbergasting it was that no one on the whole island seemed to care at all that the guano deposits would one day run out. The government was totally cavalier and was making no plans whatsoever. They were just spending the money like drunken sailors and investing none of it.

    Anyway, it looks like the chickens have finally come home to roost.

    • Jack Burton

      Which is obviously proof that the Nauru are just human parasites. They live off of nature and give nothing back, and they live off of the white man and give nothing back. If their entire population were to vanish and the island repopulated with whites, it would be infinitely better.

        Albert Schweitzer’s opinion of Africans (after nearly 50 years among them):

        “I have given my life to try to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is something that all white men who have lived here like I must learn and know: that these individuals are a sub-race. They have neither the intellectual, mental, or emotional abilities to equate or to share equally with white men in any function of our civilization. I have given my life to try to bring them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: the superior and they the inferior. For whenever a white man seeks to live among them as their equals they will either destroy him or devour him. And they will destroy all of his work. Let white men from anywhere in the world, who would come to Africa, remember that you must continually retain this status; you the master and they the inferior like children that you would help or teach. Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you.”

        Dr Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 1951 (“African Notebook” 1939)

        The African is my brother but he is my younger brother by several centuries.

        Albert Schweitzer

        • pcmustgo

          I’ve googled this quote and read it isn’t true, that Albert Schweitzer never said this.

          • The Worlds Scapegoat

            I have read articles from the 1950’s and 1960’s from other people claiming he said that. Since he died in the mid 1960’s, I am sure he would have corrected any false quotations attributed to him.

            I cannot see why anyone with intelligence and common sense would try to help blacks. Leave them be. Let them sink or swim on their own. Today more whites would try to make a rock float than would bring water to a thirsty white man.

            .

        • Jack Burton

          That’s commonly falsely attributed to him, you can’t find that quote in his books.

          However he did take a superior stance to them in the following from his book On the Edge of the Primeval Forest:

          “The negro is a child, and with children nothing can be done without the use of authority. We must, therefore, so arrange the circumstances of daily life that my natural authority can find expression. With regard to the negroes, then, I have coined the formula: ‘I am your brother, it is true, but your elder brother.'”

          • SentryattheGate

            Thank you, Jack. I got that quote from a Time magazine article (forgot the date).

            Then you go check it out! July 11, 1949 issue is one place to check(Schweitzer is on the cover). I do not see it here, but I posted a comment re. Schweitzer’s autobiography, wherein he refers to the typical African traits that frustrated him. If you cannot attribute that exact quote, then check his autobiography!

        • galtonian

          Several years ago I was annoyed with myself for having been so gullible so as to have believed that this was an actual quote by Albert Schweitzer, so I tried to find the earliest known appearance of the quote.

          The earliest I could find was in John Tyndall’s British right wing magazine Spearhead (October 1975, issue 88, page 12). The quote appeared in a box under the heading “THOUGHT FOR THE MONTH”. Does anybody know people who wrote for the Spearhead during the mid seventies and might know who made up this “quote”.

            No, I can’t answer your question, but I did read some of Albert Schweitzer’s autobiography, wherein he writes about typical African traits of childishness, laziness, lack of motivation to learn or help themselves, and a tendency to destroy property.

          • Bantu_Education

            I’ve tried to research this quote myself with no luck. In his 1939 “African Notebook” he comes across as a typical white liberal looking for, and finding (in his own mind) good traits about blacks. If he said this it must have been shortly before his death probably to some obscure now defunct Belgian publication. There is more than a grain of truth to it – it does seem like the dying lament of a man who had spent his entire life trying to help blacks and finally realising all his effort was wasted.

      • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

        If their entire population were to vanish and the island repopulated with whites, it would be infinitely better.
        .
        Yeah, contrast Nauru with the entirely-White island of Tristan da Cunha, the most remote populated island in the world. Two thousand kilometers from St. Helena the nearest inhabited island, it’s a mountainous land with only a tiny farmable strip, without harborage for decent-size boats, 297 Whites descended from eight families scratch out a living farming and fishing. They live within their means in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, and make it work.

        • bilderbuster

          Iceland is a fine example to compare any non-White nation to but in this case The Falkland islands will also work just as well.

          • Franklin_Ryckaert

            In his book My Awakening David Duke did just that : he compared Iceland with Haiti, giving the lie to the theory that everything depends on environment. Haiti lies in a subtropical climate and is fertile, Iceland lies in a cold zone and is infertile, yet Haiti is extremely poor while Iceland is prosperous. The reason is of course race.

          • bilderbuster

            That’s a classic!
            I googled “David Duke: Iceland vs Haiti” just now to reread it lol!
            I highly recommend that article to everyone.

    They were poor before colonization and defaulted back to their natural state of poverty once the British left.

    • bilderbuster

      Their entire culture was founded on bird poop.

      • Jack Burton

        Bird feces is worth more than they are.

        • bilderbuster

          Well they’re *hit out of that now aren’t they?
          The only thing they’re worth now is fertilizer or chum.

          • Jack Burton

            They’re not worth anything, it’s the land that is worth something. Australia uses it as a detention center for immigrants.

      • DavidGolani11

        They had a culture long before bird poop sales. Its just that good old capitalism quickly wipes out resources and on an island nation they don’t have limitless resources.

        • bilderbuster

          They sold all of the bird poop, blew all their money, and all they are left with is whatever culture they started out with before the cash for bird poop culture.

  • DelmarJackson

    Our economy is based on debt and paper with ink on it and our politicians and media are controlled by billionaire open border cheap labor globalists . Don’t laugh too hard at Nauru.

    • SentryattheGate

      Yes, BUT the globalists are communists who work to pull US (and the rest of the First World) down to supposedly “equalize” outcomes across the globe. They are to blame for the FED and it’s fiat/worthless money and for the open borders, where millions of Thurd Worlders pour in! That is not the will of real Americans!

    • We did go off the gold standard, but the US fiat currency actually is backed by something, believe it or not. It is backed by the value of all the goods and services produced by the US population each year. This does mean, however that public-sector make-work “jobs” for black Diversitards and brown Incompetoids contribute nothing to the GDP that backs the dollar; these are simply non-productive consumers.

      • WR_the_realist

        Actually the U.S. currency is not backed by anything. The government makes no promise that a dollar will buy x% of the nation’s goods and services, and in practice the fraction of the nation’s goods and services that a dollar will buy declines every year. Ultimately what gives the dollar “value” is the fact that people are required to pay their taxes with them. So people who need to pay taxes want dollars, and they will want to be paid in dollars from other people. So those other people will want dollars to buy things with, even if they pay no taxes themselves.

      • Lygeia

        The US fiat currency is backed by oil.

        • Franklin_Ryckaert

          No it is not backed by oil. It is used as means of payment for oil, but not backed by it. There is no “Fort Knox” with millions of barrels oil to back the dollar. The dollar is created out of nothing and backed by nothing.

      Build a giant WalMart around the whole island and it will look like their store on the near west side of Cleveland.

      • Lord Sandwich

        Steelyard?

        • evilsandmich

          Yup, though I heard that the REAL reason that they closed the one in Garfield Heights down was because the employees and customers were stealing everything that wasn’t glued down.

          • Lord Sandwich

            It’s my understanding that they closed Garfield out of concerns about methane from the adjacent landfill. Every urban Walmart has to manage theft. Garfield is no worse than Steelyard or Clev Hts, and they manage to operate in a black environment.

  • De Doc

    Well, there is a bright side to this story. These fun loving Negritos will soon return to their svelt selves again, as starvation sets in from poverty.

  • TL2014

    Where have we seen this before…where do we see this day in, day out…

  • Paleoconn

    I long for the day the mideast gang of thugs see the source of their riches dry up. These countries have achieved nothing. They were just lucky to be sitting on natural wealth, however with no vision to actually create something of worth, like manufacturing of any sort.

    • Iran was actually a bit smarter about it in that respect than the Arabs were. During the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, the Iraqis imported almost all of their arms except light infantry weapons and some vehicles they assembled from knocked-down kits (the “Lion of Babylon” tank was simply a T-72 locally assembled in Iraq from parts supplied by Poland and Russia.)

      The Iranians, on the other hand, spent their oil revenue developing a genuine domestic arms industry, and has produced two different versions of a reverse-engineered Northrop F-5 and the Zulfiqar series of tanks, which use reverse-engineered components of the US-built M48 and M60 as well as the Russian T-72.

      • DavidGolani11

        Well only the Persians are smart enough to successfully reverse engineer american equipment. Only the most exotic stuff they were unable to copy, such as the engines for their F-14s and advanced hawk missiles. Reagan happily provided iran with F-14 engines, missiles and antitank weapons during the war, albeit illegally.

        • Almost none of that stuff was ever delivered by the Reagan administration. Some of the HAWK missile batteries were, but the Iranians eventually had to reverse-engineer even that; they even produced an air-to-air version (!) for their remaining F-14 Tomcats to replace the AIM-54 Phoenix missiles they had used up.

          The currently flyable F-14s in Iranian inventory use Russian-made jet engines. This must have involved a lot of work, because of course all of the accessories on the Russian engines would be in different places (rather like the extensive rework of the Mirage V, a.k.a. “Nesher” by the Israelis to replace the original French Atar jet with a General Electric J-79, thus producing the “Kfir”.)

          • Bantu_Education

            Never thought about the significance before – so the Israelis had a jet plane called Kaffir? I’m sure the old S.African government would have loved some of those…!!!

          • Franklin_Ryckaert

            Kfir in Hebrew means “lion cub”. The Afrikaans derogatory word Kaffer for Black Africans is derived from the Arab word Kafir, “unbeliever” with which the Arab (slave) traders designated Black Africans.

          • DavidGolani11

            The Reagan Regime supplied Iran with TWO C-5 galaxy planeloads of weapons, thats a lot of stuff, especially since the taxpayer paid for them and reagan used the illegal sales to fund the contras. Thats why Iran-Contra was such a big deal.

      • Paleoconn

        MCS, you sir are a weapons encyclopedia.

      • DavidGolani11

        Yes, Persians are a completely differen stock compared to Arabs. Its amazing they can reverse engineer USA helicopters like the Cobra and the Chinook.

    • Bantu_Education

      They believe their oil was given them by Allah as a gift for being Muslims, and it is indeed uncanny that most Muslim countries have oil whereas adjacent non-muslim countries have nothing. I’m thinking particularly about Azerbaijan and Armenia.

      • Paleoconn

        I think that was the intent of the Anglo-Americans; to have small, ineffectual, corrupt, puppet governments like these Muzzie ones which are more easily controlled.

        • Bantu_Education

          Er, you mean like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Algeria, and Libya?

    Gee, I’m not sure what to say about this article other than this: Who the f%^& cares? Sounds like a more advanced edition of the “cargo cult” mentality. White people! We are surrounded the world over by people who are vastly dumber than we. How much longer are we expected to carry them? And, when TPTB rid the earth of Whites, who the hell will take care of business? The Chinese? (HA) The Indians?(HA). The Saudis?(HAHAHAHA). FIGHT BACK NOW!

    Anyone know what the average IQ of the Nauruans, or whatever they’re called is?

    • Kenner

      14 coconuts.

    • Franklin_Ryckaert

      I can find only the average IQs of nearby islands, but that should be a reliable indication. IQ 84 for : Kiribati, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu. IQ 87 for Tonga and West Samoa. So it would be more or less equal to the IQ of American Blacks, with the concomitant lack of delayed gratification and providence, which this story clearly demonstrates.

  • Lord Sandwich

    Now they ain’t got s#!t.

    • Kenner

      They’re down to their last poo-poo platter.

  • DavidGolani11

    Blame Australia and New Zealand, who have found that islanders from Nauru and Tonga were a perfect target market for unhealthy export food such as corned beef and mutton flaps, as well as pork drippings and high fructose corn syrup laden sodas.

    Blacks keep hollering for slavery reparations in the trillions (only from whites). Of course, this can only happen with the help of other whites and white lawyers. If the blacks were to get their hands on those trillions, same results will come about as reported by the article. Once the money runs out, blacks will be back for more handouts again and again.

    You are closer to Fiji than I am. (I am jealous) I imagine you have had some nice holidays there. I looked up the demographics on wikipedia, it claims that Fijians are still the majority, but who knows? (The population of Fiji is mostly made up of native Fijians (54.3%), and Indo-Fijians (38.1%)) I was kidnapped by an Indian cabdriver there, but I talked my way out of it. I know that not all Indians are bad, but that was a nasty situation.
