    Yeah good example but your countries needed the phosphate so that it's people can grow their own food this is how generous the Nauruans are, where will you people get your food without our phosphate? Your soul is not capable of growing healthy plant till phosphate was discovered by you greedy people

    Depending on one source of revenue, exploited by colonialism is not sustainable. It was inevitable that the island came to self destruction. It's a lesson to many similar nations.

    The Australian government supports this regime by paying them to illegally take refugees that had attempted to enter Australia which is against the refugee charter human rights charters that Australia were signatories.

    It is idiotic to consider an island this small having a population of mere 12,000 as a "country".

    When they needed to take care for their nature.. They were busy earning money by exploiting this nature.. Now it's nature's turn.. Not happy but no sympathy though... It's natural
