The Sad Story of the Ilois

With all this talk about deporting violence-inciting foreigners, Mike Cunningham posts about a group of British subjects who have already been 'deported' for the crime of living on a strategically important little island (read: forcibly relocated)...the Ilois, the original inhabitants of the island of Diego Garcia.

While the base at Diego Garcia is certainly important for strategic reasons (both now and during the Cold War), it's worth noting the price the Ilois have paid for the security it provides.

Much more on Diego Garcia here, including satellite images.
