  1. China has a dictatorship and Maldives has the same type of government.So Maldives and China are natural friends. Maldivian Police and Army must go to China for training. Its a good idea.

  2. maldives will be better under waheed dictatorship than under Anni.

    Anni who does not have any clue of running a country and infect he does not know how to run his own family.

    These MDP thugs boycott the tourism when they want to come to power in 2008 and then after they failed to rule this country again using tourism as thier weapon

    No matter who is ruling this country , tourism will play a major role in deciding who is going to rule the nation.

    Boycotting tourism is not going to take these yellow fever guys to any where and they are rather putting fire into their own feet.
