    One can only help those who help their selves.

    Perhaps greatest most admirable quality about your country imo - self reliance. Each generation takes care of it's self. The way things should be. This is partly why you all are blessed like you are.
    We are fortunate that we are here.

    We work hard with good and honest leaders.

    I believe I will suffer the same if I am in the same place.

    Thank you for the compliment.

    We have no land and no natural resources.

    We must admit that we have money and it is our only resources. We keep it for raining day and pray that the world and region are peace and prosperous.

    We make friends as it is better to have friends. We have to help our friends to grow as when they grow, we grow.

    We join all regional and world trade blocks be it TTP, WTO, ADB, Silk Road old and new etc.

    We are prepared to serve the world. We sent our army, civil defence all over the trouble spots when we were requested to do so. But remember, we did them not within our land as they are only meant for us.

    They are for survival.

    Agreed.

    What is the % of your income are you prepared to part?

    10%? 20%? or 30%

    Or tax increase to save them?

    If there is a need, let us go thru UN...

    Not just us of course, but we are a very 'pragmatic' people. That said, I do have hope for the younger generation

    I know this is history and difficult to resolve but they must keep it within their own country to resolve them.
    At one time, U was setting the direction. No more. They are no more in the pole position. You have R who is trying to gain their past glory and C, the middle kingdom.
