I'll make this quick. A few years ago while on a cruise my wife and I visited Sihanoukville Cambodia. We could not believe how terrible the living conditions were for the native people there. The place was just one big building site for luxury hotels and casino's being built for high roller fly in fly out Chinese gamblers. The crime rate had gone up (Chinese Mafia) and the native people couldn't afford to buy land anymore, for housing. If you want to see what may become of the Solomon islands and it's people I implore your politicians to visit that town in Cambodia.
