Maldives update
"The President has the delusion that he is the saviour of Maldives and he finds blunt personal criticism deeply offensive. The President believes dissent from his will is treason and that fear is the key to remaining in power. He revels in hours of official pomp and ceremony, and enjoys watching videos of his prisoners being tortured and beaten at NSS prisons around Male'. He boasts to his fellow NSS officers about the letters he receives from his victims' families begging for the release of their loved ones."
My emphasis. Tell people you know, get the news out there. This man is a Muslim dictator of the old school. And we prop him up. Not the oil companies, but hundreds of thousands of individual wealthy westerners who travel to his islands for their holidays.
