|REGIME POINTSMEN: Kubuabola at today's MSG discussion and Libya's Moussa Koussa (below).|
Both had their digits out today but just one of them had the balls to give their beloved dictator the fingers.
Libya's Foreign Minister, Moussa Koussa, broke with the rabid Muammar Gaddafi today, defecting to the United Kingdom.
Koussa's departure is significant news; it shows major cracks in the hierarchy of the Libyan regime as it fights to keep rebel and Coalition forces at bay.
His Fiji counterpart, the illegal Foreign Affairs Minister, Inoke Kubuabola, was also pulling finger today but with less integrity. He was bedding down at the Melanesian Spearhead Group discussions on Strategic Framework for Change – Good Governance, Socio Cultural and Economic Development.
Noble subject but one Kubuabola and the regime are unworthy of commandeering, considering their track record of refusing to allow elections and unmandated decision to dismantle Viti's constitution, judiciary and public service.
Koussa's motives may not be pure (he obviously wanted out before Gaddafi was brought down and will help the Coalition forces in return for a safe haven); still the gesture helps put another nail in the coffin of the Libyan leader. And that's welcome news to the Libyan people and the free world.
Could the likes of Kubuabola have the balls to ditch Bainimarama and bring down Fiji's illegal regime? No. Like the other gutless wonders who've been able to graze and get fat on Bainimarama merino, he'll take his chances of being treated leniently in a return to democracy.
In the event of that happening, no mercy should be shown him and the others who chose to not lift a finger to help Fiji when she most needed it. Worse, they led the raping and pillaging.
