Vasu promoted and Leweni recycled

Another changing of the guard for the illegal regime as it struggles to get the best fit for key jobs.

The role of Commissioner of Prisons has finally been filled by Lieutenant Colonel Iferemi Vasu who has been elevated from Commissioner Eastern.

But to replace him, the illegal regime has had to recycle Colonel Neumi Leweni, who is stepping in as Commissioner Eastern.

Vasu, of course, has been brought in to take the load off  Brigadier General Naivalurua, who had been running both prisons and police .... giving Frank the jitters in case he got too much power.

Now, if they can only find some muggins to take over the sugar industry portfolio.

Editor's Note: Thanks to the person who tipped us off about the Vasu appointment yesterday, which is now out for all to see, of course. The same person also told us that Major Ana Rokomokoti is back in Fiji from Sydney, posing the question how did she get a visa. According to this source, Rokomokoti has been babbling about releasing the coup papers.

The ever faster turning carrousel of senior postings and dismissals is a clear sign of desperation. The corner in which the regime operates gets tighter by the day and the events in Tunisia and Egypt foreshadow the events to come in Fiji. The feeling that enough is enough has grown amongst the population and I see people cringing when the regimes figurehead Aiyaz makes noises or shows his fat face in public. It would not surprise me if he has to take the fall very soon too. He has had his sticky fingers in too many pies and shady deals. The shady deals that his aunty is pulling have become a huge liability for Frank who is seriously considering to cut the strings between him and his puppet-master.

presumably the deputy commissioners and assistant commissions are so crap at their jobs they won't even be considered for the top post. We'll hear from Croz how it s because they weren't able to atttract overseas candidates or locals were too scared of the sanctions, what garbage.

Rokomokoti obtained a visa because relevant AUS security agencies are lazy & inept - simple as that.

Jake can go and take over the Sugar Industry. They need some one there to help the Coup-supporters. I mean cane-farmers. Come on Jake! or are you just all mouth?

Militarisation of Fiji said...

As the militarisation of Fiji continues the situation just gets worse by the day. The idiot military regime cannot even get text books in the schools...but remember, the textbooks you can't get are free. Unlike the free school busers, which are not free!!
And all the carping coup apologist Crosbie Walsh can do is inform us that thankfully "Frank has got his boot on their throats". Wonderful sentiments which appear to be supported by coup protaganists khaiyum, gates and pryde? These three have a lot to answer for what they have done to Fiji and its innocent children.

If somebone told you he was a former British marine veteran - an Olypic bobsledder who raced against the Jamaican of Cool Running fame - a spy with British Intelligence - a special Forces soldier on an IRA death list - a rocket scientist who designed the guidance system for the Polaris missile system - a member of the Welsh rugby union team & a former lead act on the British folk music circuit you'd simply dimiss him as a serial liar in need of urgent therapy.

Not in Kiwi land - NZ Security Intelligence Service believed all above - granted security clearance for a position as head of NZ Defence Agency.

So if ASIS is lazy & inept - what does this make its NZ counterpart? Goes a long way towards explaining current ANZUS position regarding granting of visa's to regime supporters & relatives.

Voreqe is a classic example of a failed commanding officer who is leading a military council full of similar individuals.

Every single military person should read the following excerpts and recall their Oath of Allegiance to the Constitution,the State and especially to people of Fiji.

Top-ranking officer warns U.S. military to stay out of politics
By Thom Shanker

The highest-ranking U.S. military officer has written an unusual open letter to all those in uniform, warning them to stay out of politics as the United States approaches a presidential election in which the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be a central, and certainly divisive, issue.

"The U.S. military must remain apolitical at all times," wrote Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "It is and must always be a neutral instrument of the state, no matter which party holds sway."

The statement to the armed forces is the first essay for the journal Mullen has written as chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and veteran officers said they could not remember when a similar "all-hands" letter had been issued to remind military personnel to remain outside, if not above, contentious political debate.

The essay can be seen as a reflection of the deep concern among senior officers that the U.S. military, which is paying the highest price in carrying out national security policy, may be drawn into politicking this year.

In particular, members of the Joint Chiefs have expressed worries this election year about the influence of retired officers who advise political campaigns, some of whom have publicly called for a change in policy.

"As the nation prepares to elect a new president," Mullen wrote, "we would all do well to remember the promises we made: to obey civilian authority, to support and defend the Constitution and to do our duty at all times."

"Keeping our politics private is a good first step," he added. "The only things we should be wearing on our sleeves are our military insignia."

Mullen said he was inspired to write the essay after receiving a constant stream of legitimate, if troubling, questions while visiting U.S. military personnel around the world, including, "What if a Democrat wins?" and, "What will that do to the mission in Iraq?"

"I am not suggesting that military professionals abandon all personal opinions about modern social or political issues," Mullen wrote. "What I am suggesting - indeed, what the nation expects - is that military personnel will, in the execution of the mission assigned to them, put aside their partisan leanings. Political opinions have no place in cockpit or camp or conference room."

He noted that "part of the deal we made when we joined up was to willingly subordinate our individual interests to the greater good of protecting vital national interests."

Military personnel are obligated to give their unvarnished, even critical, advice to their civilian leaders, he told the class.

"If it's followed, great," Mullen said. "If it's not, we only have two choices: obey the orders we have been given, carrying them out with the professionalism and loyalty they deserve, or vote with our feet."

"That's it," he added. "We don't get to debate those orders after the fact. We don't get to say, 'Well, it's not how I would have done it,' or, 'If they had only listened to me.' Too late at that point - and too cowardly."
