Where the Heck is Nauru?

...and why should you care?

Essentially, it's an island near Australia which declared its independence. The island was covered in guano (bird crap) which was strip mined. Nauru boasted the highest per-capita income enjoyed by any sovereign state in the world during the late 1960s and early 1970s. When the phosphate reserves were exhausted, and the island's environment had been seriously harmed by mining, the trust that had been established to manage the island's wealth diminished in value. The birds shat elsewhere and it would take 10,000 years or so of flocking there to restore what had been removed. 

To earn income, Nauru became a tax haven and allowed money laundering activities. Banks popped up along the main street in Meneng.  Between 2001 to 2008, and again from 2012, it accepted aid from Australia in exchange for hosting the Nauru Regional Processing Centre. In essence, that's where Australia ships the illegal aliens that show up on its shores. Not a bad solution but the place can only host so many Iranians, Somalis and other Mohammedans. 

President Obama generously offered to take them all. President Trump put the brakes on that (more about that here), and Australia doesn't know what to do.

What about Russia and China? Won't they take the shiftless refugees from savage lands? Un, no. What about Saudi Arabia or the Muslim nations of Indonesia or Malaysia? They're not biting.

WHY would the US want more shiftless human detritus brought here, who likely would not assimilate and would cause problems? Is there any city in America which wants many thousands of people which Australia feels are too dangerous to roam their own streets? San Francisco or Austin? Maybe Sweden?

The human condition is wretched, but the sand people need to go back to their savage nations - or maybe Yemen, where they could join one army or another. 

Thank you President Trump for saying NO to Australia. If the Aussies feel their Iranians are so precious, they can take them off the rock and settle them in Melbourne.

  1. Like most hams, obscure geography is like having a college minor. (Majored in EE, minored in obscure geography) However 10,000 years worth of bird crap is a new one. I recognized the name and verified that I've had a couple of radio contacts with Nauru.

    Only banks and governments can make a worse mess of place than 10,000 years worth of bat crap. Add in the uncontrolled immigration and the birds should hide their heads in shame.

    1. The national flag says it all. (picture worth a thousand words)

      I can't understand why the Australians want to maroon these fine Muslims on an island when they could be in Australia doing what Muslims do.

  2. Easy to wring your hands about the plight of those poor people until you actually need to get your hands dirty dealing with them.

    Let them remain someone else's problem.

    1. That's how I see it...and I suspect that's how the President sees it.

  3. Wow. Thanks for that education. I had no idea. BTW I always thought guano was bat shit.

    1. I think that it's shit - bat or bird. There are quite a few guano islands in the Pacific. This was one of the largest - now that the birds and their calling cards are gone. All they have left are refugees from Sand Countries who the Aussies don't want.

  4. Recon they got room for more? We could deport ours to that tiny wonder land. A Muslim paradise.

    1. You could parachute them in (I know that the humanitarian in you would demand parachutes, John. Always room for more, or they are edged off the reef into shark infested waters...making room for more.

    2. Yes, I would prefer the humanitarian way of using a parachute. But three or four to each chute.

  5. I remember Nauru back in the 60's: I wore my stylish Nauru jacket for the first time and only time, after getting in about 6 fights that day with my fellow 6th graders who seemed to be lacking any sense of fashion whatsoever.

    ...or maybe that was Nehru.

    1. I remember that style. Yeah, wearing one would insure that you got in fights.

      Nah, pretty sure grape nehru is a kind of soda.

  6. Trust me, the Aussies don't want them either!

    1. They're on the Aussie Island, and maybe they'll stay there, eating vegemite and putting shrimp on the barbie?

  7. Thanks for the powerful infopost. I especially like the CALL TO ACTION at the end.

    Nice. Unlike Island Nehru.

    1. Maybe London would reach out to Australia (a commonwealth nation overseen by Prince Charles) and take those violent, angry, Muslims who have no job skills and would bring them back to London. They'd blend into the population there and whats another ten thousand Mohammedans on the streets of London? No-one would notice and the murder rate already exceeds NYC's. They could go for the Tijuana or Chicago record with these additional refugees.

      Delete
    2. London? Ideal candidate, but don't forget Austin.

      Delete
    3. I did mention Austin. A few draw Mohammed contests could thin out the ranks of the refugees.

  8. Seems like the shit hit the fan in more ways than one.

  9. The island will soon be covered in muselman shot. Unfortunately it's worth less than bird/bat shit. Isn't there a congressman who may be worried the island will capsize? I'm sure he'll import the bastards to prevent that.

    1. Maybe we need to send Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) to the island on a permanent basis as a monitor to insure that it does not capsize. He can chase the Mohammedans to and fro in an effort to keep the place stable.
