See below for the full story about the Chagos islands and the installation of a massive US/UK military base, the creation of which required the illegal, forced eviction of the native islanders in the 1960s.
USA was deeply concerned with the stability of the host nation of any potential base, and sought an unpopulated territory, to avoid United Nations’s decolonisation requirements and the resulting political issues of sovereignty or anti-US sentiment. The Chagossian right of occupation was violated by the UK Foreign Office as a result of the 1966 agreement between UK & USA. The forced removal of the Chagossian people was an act of ethnic cleansing. The frustration of more than four decades of of exile for the Chagos islanders exacerbated by the refusal of successive UK governments to find a just solution kept breaking though. How can it be that a military settlement is lawful when the rightful inhabitants are not allowed to settle there? US & UK military squatters have taken over the rightful habitation of the islands. Each revelation about the UK’s dealings with Diego Garcia is more disgraceful than the previous, and still the cover-up continues.
Documentary produced by John Pilger titled ‘Stealing of a Nation’ discusses the current plight of the Chagossian people who have been forcibly exiled by the so-called guardians of democracy and human rights, the United Kingdom, for the benefit of their loyal friends, the USA, so that the latter has an unrestricted platform to launch attacks on other nations which do not comply with the so called ‘new world order’ as dictated by them
