    How is undertaking unserviceable debt doing well?
    Corrupt officials entered into debt to China, that is difficult for the country to service, no doubt in order to skim off the top.

    It looks like the Maldives played China and India for suckers. Pretty slick.

    Soul is an abstract. My hat is off to anyone who can get any monetary value in exchange for a soul.

    From Wiki = Islam is the official religion of the Maldives and open practice of any other religion is forbidden and liable to prosecution. Article 2 of the revised constitution says that the republic "is based on the principles of Islam". Article nine says that "a non-Muslim may not become a citizen"; article ten says that "no law contrary to any principle of Islam can be applied". Article nineteen states that "citizens are free to participate in or carry out any activity that is not expressly prohibited by sharia [Islamic law] or by the law".

    I guess India is stepping to try to keep China from expanding its presence in the area.

    I don't know what the long term effects will be----but Maldives
    has ---quite recently---(I thing something like 20 years ago)---
    created this MODERN SHARIAH SHIT-PIT idea----which can
    be a PRECEDENT. France could solve its creeping
    islamization problem by declaring France a CATHOLIC
    state------with provisions re CANON law correlated to the
    MALDIVES model

    France already is a Catholic state. As a matter of fact, most European countries are officially Christian countries which means tax money is spent on Christian affairs.
