Fiji sources: Fiji naval boats have assembled in Lau waters

BEACON FIXED: pic Tonga MINFO
The Tongan government says it's fixed one of the navigational beacons at Minerva lagoon and is standing firm on its claim of ownership ahead of Fiji.

The information comes as Fiji intelligence sources confirm the three naval boats that left Suva for Minerva over the weekend are now all assembled at Kabara in Lau.

Sources say Fiji maintains it has more rights to the lagoon than Tonga and is looking at the Marine Space Act to reinforce its claim and is prepared to take 'necessary action to defend its position'. 

They also say the dispatched naval boats are on standby in Lau waters, waiting for a directive from the illegal prime minister, Frank Bainimara, who also left the capital yesterday for a week-long visit to the Lau group with what is reported to be a huge entourage.

But Tonga has this morning repeated its position, with Chief Secretary and Secretary to Cabinet, Busby Kautoke, saying it has fulfilled its maritime duties by fixing one of the navgational beacons destroyed by Fiji "in order that persons traversing Teleki Tokelau may travel safely and without impediment".

“The Government of Tonga’s immediate concern is motivated by the real danger to international shipping by the destruction of navigational beacons, albeit by an act of vandalism, placed there by the Tongan authorities and duly marked on the charts.”


A Fiji source told Coupfourpointfive the latest skirmish between Tonga and Fiji is more hostile than when a Tongan naval boat breached Fiji waters to pick up Roko Ului Mara last month. 

He says the mood in Suva changes daily and it's hard to sometimes know what's going on but it's clear that Tonga's invasion of Fiji's EEZ over Minerva violates national security and Fiji is taking it seriously.

The illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and his family, is meanwhile said to be ccurrently accomodated at the barracks while Bainimarama is in Lau.

Again suggest Vore & Kean think this thru? Do not discount the possibility of Tonga receiving international backup in the event of conflict.

Tonga is our friend do not fight the Tongans...you do not have my support in fighting the Tongans...do not use our tax dollars for that war...you have not asked for our permission to expand our money that way...you will have to answer for that action if you sink one or all of those vessels and for all the food and fuel that you have taken with you...Tonga has the support of the Forum you don't...you will just cause further isolation of yourselves in this nonsence...embarrasing indeed.

Tongan Navy is trying so hard to provoke a reaction from Fiji is quite evident. Like puppets on a string pulled by the Tongan King supporting the hidden agenda's of Roko Ului. Offcoure the Tongan Navy knows it has no chance but causing an international incident to involve Australia and New Zealand.

@anon 2.25 pm they are there in full force to intimitade the Lauans...wrong people to intimidate. They will never go close to Minerva because they will be engaged with arms at Minerva. There are no arms at Kabara so they will intimidate the unarmed civilians there.

I think the Vore should go for Tonga!

To the Vore and his airarse - Please, please, please attack the Tongan Navy so we can bring this show-down to a quick end. Finito.

Minerva Reef belongs to Tonga - so says the PEOPLE OF FIJI!!!!!!

You and your thugs have stolen the people's government, stolen the people's treasury as if it's your own family's purse and now you want to steal another nation's reef.

Tonga should not take this lightly. Commodore with his anger on tonga for harboring Mara will certainly attack Tonga.

It is about time that Tonga calls on foreign intervention.

Does Fiji have a navy? Laughable how the Tongans sailed in, have a feast on their naval vessel, a bit of a sing along then went back to Tonga. And they did this while Fiji's navy guys are drinking grog. Banana should be careful as if he decides to invade Tonga, the women will chase them away with sasa brooms and jandals, and men will use sling shots.

Do you recall the football match years ago, when Frank was sidelined by Fijians and an Australian Diplomat was
invited in his place ?
He reacted like a spoilt little boy and expelled him !
I'm taking my ball and going home and I'm not playing with you guys anymore !
And here, we see the same childish, infantile reaction from Frankie !
I'm taking our Navigational Beacons because you took Ului Mara away !
Grow up Frank, you pathetic little child !
What does that say of the Soldiers following him around like dogs sniffing the head dogs arse ?

But I'm left wondering, does Aiyaz have the same personality as Frank ?
Because it is Aiyaz who orders Frank right, so the behaviour comes from the top, the top of the shit pile !

Over the past 3 weeks anti Frank bloggers sounding more and more agitated. Is it the failure of RUM to do any damamge? Or is jealousy in how well Frank & Co are doing in keeping the grassroots happy. I guess I wud be worried if I was in anti Frank camp. To add, jailing of high profile indian businessmen has shown that coup wasn't pro indian yet a gin wine coup.

I hope Frank and Co. create an incident with Tonga so that the International Organisations can become involved and the Biketawa Declaration invoked by Government of Tonga.

Aiyaz is now cowering away with his family and fearing for his safety and suffering the persecution he was happy to bestow on others.

Total Lunar Eclipse : 15 June 2011

It will be 1st total lunar eclipse of this year. In the month of June and July there will be three eclipse continuously after 15 days of gap from each.

This eclipse can shake the earth again as solar and lunar eclipses have a direct bearing on earthquakes.

Most of us are familiar with the fact that the Moon causes the tides in the earth’s oceans because of the gravity forces between Earth and Moon. This usually happens within fifteen days before and after during eclipse.

Storms, earthquake, mass disaster/death, explosion are expected.

It will be bad for the ruling government; change of rulers also expected.

KEEP PRAYING AND FASTING!!!

You may be able to hold US hostage and write words that have no mroal fortitude but to actually EXPECT the rest of the world to respect them? You are truly insane.

Now you want to cite law when you, yourself have done away with law and order? Please check the AG into St. Giles. It's where he needs to be until he is picked up and prosecuted for his crimes.

RE: Radiolucas - I did but cannot put my thumb on it. No doubt C 4.5 could help you with that one or scroll down a few articles and his address pops up.

THIS is not about Mara or the SDL reasserting its power (even though I guess it had had gotten it through vote prior to 2006, WITH questionable circumstances). We need to move forward without the people who have held us back in the past. Habits are hard to break. Too many who have had power - have abused it. They no longer DESERVE the power.

Please get away from a tribal concept. That was yesterday. We are now a nation and we need to start behaving like one.

We have been piece mealed (sold out for parts)for years by those in power who DID NOT respect their homeland and only saw it as a virgin to be raped. Yea, that's right folks. We done been raped - over and over and over again. A select few have taken the cream off the top and sold us out to foreign INVESTORS who want to own and control Fiji for their own perverted use.

Welcome to Hell. Hell in Paradise. John Galt

I have been closely following Roko Ului's media he has been issuing so far since his flight from Fiji via fishing expedition and I am beginning to have some doubts as to the reasons he gave on the reasons behind 2006 coup. In several of ghis statements, he said rthey were all in its together to rid the SDL government because of corruption and racist policies that existed and there was a need for a clean-up and that the military reign was to be only for a year and that elections be held again thereafter. Further he said when Aiyaz came in derailed the initially planned process and started to turn Bainimarama away from the military council dictating way things were to be run. He said this was why he and Driti had fallen out with Bainimarama.

In another statement, he claimed the coup had nothing to do with the much publicised clean-up campaign and was executed by Bainimarama to save himself from investigations into allegations that he had ordered the killinghs of CRW soldiers in 2000.

Now here we have two reasons which are pillars apart. I ask RUM to please clear the air, which of the two is the true version because we cannot have leading this fight for return to democracy someone who is saying things that create confusion and suspicion.

Ului Mara is not now and never will be leading the return to Democracy !
He is simply sharing, mostly already known details about the Regime, and informing us of some extra details.

It it the people, represented by the various Non Government Organisations and Democracy Movements, who will lead Fiji back to Democracy, not someone who is guilty of Treason, yet still hasn't admitted it.

More on Minerva.

A P3 Orion surveillance aircraft has been dispatched from Hobsonville airbase near Auckland for an unsheduled training exercise in the Tongan area.

No guesses on where it is heading or who it will be tracking. If it is visiting Tonga for the next few days as suggested then Minerva is a mere 20 minutes away.

Minerva Reef is also inside New Zealands claimable EEZ although it has never made any claim to it.

Again we say, the very inevitable and the confused tripartite allegiances bottled up within the psyche of our Military hierarchy and within the ranks may just determine whether we achieve the plateau of peace and tranquility we wish to reach tomorrow.

In Church yesterday the Military Padre cloths the Commander per-sermon speech with smartly selected bible verses, and thence proceed to appeal to the soul and spirit with fiery sermon demanding total undivided allegiances to the original 2006 Coup of Cleaning up Fiji…”Cleaning” akin to the virtue of righteousness, the Padre champions whether on the sand dunes of the Middle East or Delainabua Military Chapel.

Most of these Soldiers are also members of other varied Christian denominations who pray the removal of the Co Prime Ministers pleading “the righteous rule people rejoice” .

Others denominations or faiths just wanna wait and see. Then conveniently professors divine will, either way.

Yet many are very conscious and passionate of the traditional roles and obligations of their respective Vanua’s they each hail from. Occasional visits to the extended family of vanua meetings or wedding, birthday etc are reminded of their obligations to the vanua..to the blood bound of all their stand for.

When a soldier ‘s true spiritual eyes and patriotic sense divinely awakens, then the glamour of pay rise , back pay and other generous perks by the regime now splashed around the camp may just evaporate by the intentional warmth of the realization of the truth to act for the common good.

We still believe though, that common sense and abundance of goodwill shall blanket the individual souls and spirit of many members of our Military and collective act for the common good…and hope the young Chief Ratu Mara’s assurances of “no shoot to kill and maim” miraculously stands the test of time.

Oh..why do'nt we settle the reef saga on the rugby field....winners take all...reef and all!!

CHINA respects Fiji sovereignty, not like countries that continue to bully Fiji, says departing Chinese ambassador Dr Han Zhiqiang.

Dr Han is quoted by the Information Ministry as saying China believes Fiji has the right to resolve its own issues as a sovereign nation and that China will not take sides in continuously condemning and pressuring Fiji to make decisions like Australia and New Zealand.

"Fiji and China are perfect brothers in the international arena and we respect each other's sovereignty," he said.

"My government attaches great importance to our bilateral ties. It is our determined policy and we are committed to do so."

Dr Han said no matter what may happen in international politics, China would always be pro-Fiji "and support Fiji and treat Fiji like a friend".

"Fiji and China are both developing countries and face similar challenges and tasks, thus we understand each other," Dr Han said.

Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola said Dr Han needed to be commended for playing a pivotal role in developing bilateral relations.

"China's support to the Engaging the Pacific meeting hosted by our Prime Minister in 2010 and the support for the Melanesian Spearhead Group Summit hosted in March, are instances of China responding to short-term needs of Fiji that came outside of any agreed framework of development co-operation, this is undoubtedly credited to the efforts of Dr Han," Ratu Inoke said.

"Development and funding of projects such as the opening of the new Chinese Embassy by President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau has become a symbol of China's commitment to Fiji and to the Pacific region."

And, if we can’t avoid a government to which we never gave consent and which abrogates the Constitution, so is our freedom.

My observation on FB, is a man who has 2 sets of brain, the right and the left. The left brain is the one engineering all these stupidities whereas the right is the right, could be the one that was there but lost most during the cassava-patch sprint in 2000. So, apply more and more pressure, the left brain comes quickly into play and if that happens and coincidently he is the manerva reef then the end comes naturally, peacefully as we prayed.

Fiji pro-democracy movement gathers momentum

Adrienne Francis reported this story on Monday, June 13, 2011 12:41:00

http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2011/s3242358.htm



ELEANOR HALL: Fijian political activists based in Australia say momentum is building towards their long awaited goal of seeing a return to democracy in Fiji.

The defection of a former ally of the Fijian dictator, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, is being seized upon by democracy campaigners as a turning point, as Adrienne Francis reports.

(Singing Fijians)

VULA YEE: It is sad because that beautiful anthem can only be sung on a foreign land, not in Fiji.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Vula Yee can't remember the last time she sang her national anthem in a group.
The Melbourne nurse and her family fled Fiji after the coup of 1989.

Vula Yee was among more than 100 Fijians who travelled to the New South Wales city of Queanbeyan for a democracy rally.

SULIASI DAUNITUTU: It is a from down up approach, from the people upwards approach.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Suliasi Daunitutu is the interim president of the Fiji Democracy Freedom Movement, based in Australia. The members have collaborated with academics from the Australian National University to create a plan to restore democracy to Fiji.

They're calling for re-instatement of the 1997 constitution and the judicial system. They also want the Great Council of Chiefs re-instated.

Mr Daunitutu says they are hoping to dislodge Commodore Frank Bainimarama peacefully.

SULIASI DAUNITUTU: We tried to not use words that will aggravate the situation, to stop him from coming to dialogue. Words like arrest and all those words you know.

These are words that I think that have been used so many times through the four and a half years, it hasn't helped in any way. It has just aggravated the situation and made people drift away from the leadership.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Pro-democracy campaigners have secured the backing of a former ally of the Fijian regime.

Lieutenant Colonel Tevita Mara is the youngest son of the first prime minister of Fiji. He was a key supporter of Commodore Bainimarama, when Bainimarama staged his coup in 2006 and took over the country. However, there's been a falling out between them.

Bainimarama charged Tevita Mara with sedition, and the Fijian regime were seeking his extradition from Tonga. But Mr Mara is visiting Australia meeting with the pro-democracy movement.

Tevita Mara how can you expect to be taken seriously when you were so intimately involved in the Fiji coup?

TEVITA MARA: Well that's one aspect which I think can be to my advantage, that I was part of the group that participated. I was part of the military that took over government. I have been discharged from the military. It is my word. I think I have the backing of a lot of people back home to speak out the truth on what's happening back home.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Can his words here today be believed?

VULA YEE: Yes I do believe that he has changed. He has publicly told the people that what he did was wrong. I believe in my heart, this is the turning point for him and for all of us.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Vula Yee's assessment of Tevita Mara is mirrored by other members of the democracy movement.

SULIASI DAUNITUTU: He is a very big part of this transitional plan but this is as they say a game changer. A person right in the middle of the regime has defected and we can use him to our full advantage. So we could change a lot of things.

ADRIENNE FRANCIS: Suliasi Daunitutu is preparing to take the Fiji democracy paper to the annual Pacific Island Forum, which will be held in New Zealand in September.

Beware - the so-called empathy of China's public statement towards Fiji. They have, I believe, their own selfish and destructive reasons for passively watching us wallow in coup after coup.

Without a strong backbone of goverance, with bullies fighting over power along tribal lines, we are RIPE for the plucking - and they know it.

They are already in and fast on track with their agenda of how to make "use" of us. They have already made dirty alliances with those in power.

I am beginning to believing that like 87 when Rabuka was used by power hungry bad losers to stage the coup to get these guys back into power that Bainimarama was likewise used in 2006 for the same reason. The scenario looks quite similar and becomes much clearer as time passes by and as recents events unfold. One can see the same players emerging in all these. KKT used Rabuka for the dirty job because he did not want to his son-in-law Nailatikau tainted. In 2006 Bainimarama was used by Mara siblings and Epeli Ganilau to remove Qarase after New Alliance could not make it at the ballot box. When Bainimarama did not give up PM post as planned, the fallout begins. First we had Ganilau leaving and his bro in law RUM was tasked with strategising ways of counter-couping Bainimarama but he did not have the substance to do it. So it is the same old aristocratic players. I also do not believe Bainimarama was the one that actually started the QEB torture and abuse. I believe RUM and Driti are the real culprits here. Bainimarama seems like a good and reasoable man to me. He comes from a good family I tell you. You can the family trait in the likes of elder bro Ratu Meli, Ratu Jim and the sisters. We may be barking up the wrong tree people..

To all of you calling for blood, a take over etc etc. Do you realize what these actions will do to Fiji's fragile economy? It will fall like a sledgehammer thrown from a double storey balcony. All these are easier said then done. This is not a movie and we are not the Middle East where oil springs from the ground. Our tourist industry is the only thing keeping our dollar respectable. If this goes we are doomed and the dollar will have to be devalued again. This would mean that in a few months or so we will become like Zimbabwe where a loaf of bread costs about a billion dollars. Any action taken will have to be well thought of and done with minimal impact on the economy. Brut force will not solve our problems. It never has and never will.

@ Mark Manning, I don't think its is prudent to be calling for war on this blog, nor should we suggest one in the process. The Minerva Reef is not worth fighting for, we should sit down as gentlemen and resolve things through dialogue and consensus.
The Minerva Reef issue is something for Fiji and Tonga to resolve internally and does not require the intervention of the so called Biketawa signatories.
Those that are calling for Tonga to initiate a confrontation with Fiji are the very people who are not Fijians and are in this only for their self interest. They do not care if Fiji is destroyed by war or invasion, as long as their interests are served, they would be satisfied. So please Mark Manning let us Fijians resolve our problem the pacific way and not in the way your ancestors forcefully took land from our Aboriginal and Maori brother and sisters.

Get Your Head Out of the Sand. Fiji is almost bankrupt.

The Bible attributes the cause of wars to the following three things:

First, war is the result of a sinful fallen world (James 4:1-2).

Secondly, wars are the result of God's judgment (2 Samuel 12:10).

Third, wars can be the result of God's decree or decision (Exodus 17:14-16,
Deuteronomy 25:17-19).

War is sometimes a necessary tool of God against sinful people.

War is sometimes just.

Those with a right view of war know that victory comes from the Lord.

Those who take up arms in just honorable conflict trusting in God are rewarded by God.

The Scripture states that there is a time for war:

"To everything there is a season, 1 A time for every purpose under heaven: 8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace." Ecclesiastes 3:1, 8

When is it time for war? When the innocent are being oppressed.

There is such a thing as a just war, a time for war. May God lead us wisely and gracefully and may His truth reign and His justice flow (Amos 5:24).

Of course the non-violent way to resolve conflict preached by Gandhi and Martin Luther King is preferable, but this does not mean that we should be passive in the face of injustice. As Augustine wrote long ago:

"Wars are always unfortunate but it would be more unfortunate for the unjust to triumph
over the just. The necessity of going to war to prevent this may certainly be regarded by
good people as being a blessed course of action." City of God, 4.14

There is no moral problem in choosing to give up our lives rather than to strike out
against others threatening us; but is it not an injustice to remain passive when those we
love, when the innocent, when the defenseless come under such attack?
Does it make sense when others for one reason or another (even reasons that they feel
have the highest moral justification) attack the ideals we live by, the church we believe
in, the community that nourishes us, to stand by and let the vicious oppressors have their
way? Augustine, himself a child of violent times, believed that the very injustice of such
attacks imposes the duty to go to war against them (City of God, 19.7).

12 BIBLICAL RULES OF ENGAGEMENT IN THE JUST WAR: ... Tenth, allow the enemy to undermine and defeat himself if possible. Dictators and tyrants are often destroyed from within. Wait for this and facilitate it if you can.

There is such a thing as a just war, a time for war. To say that war must never be waged for the sake of truth, for the sake of justice, is to create the impression that there is no truth, that one belief is as good as another, that Ishould be happy to embrace any way of thinking that is imposed upon me. It is to imply that there is no such a thing as justice, that there are no "rights" or "wrongs", that therefore there are no "wrongs" to be "righted". Indeed, it is to imply that there is no such thing as "rationality" and that chaos and disorder is and should be the rule of the day.

@ 8:43 & 9:19So very smart in your discussion about war. Let me ask you a question, do you know what war is, have you ever been in one? The reason I asked is that if you say yes to both questions then you you would understand.
I have been to war and am lucky enough to have survived. I have served in Northern Ireland during the eighties, West Germany, South America and the 1991 Gulf War. I know what war is through and through. I know if it's a just war or if we're being sent to enact a government policy in a foreign land.
What we did was honorable but we saw is not something I want my grandchildren to go through. You quote from the scriptures trying to justify the declaration of war. I say you're wrong, you leave the scriptures alone, don't bring that non sense about truth and whatever you people believe nowadays to justify turning Suva into South Armagh. If that's what you want then you the same as all other extremist religious zealots who will not have a happy ending in life.
I fought what I believed in, that there's a higher purpose to life, grander than myself. What you're suggesting is treasonous. There's nothing happening in Fiji, so please don't be foolish enough to try anything. The Fiji Army maybe small in stature but I assure you whatever it lacks for in equipment and technology it will make up for in sheer guts and ingenuity. So if you foreign armies do invade make sure they bring a lot of body bags for their soldiers because we veterans would love one more chance to go head hunting and join our brothers in arms. Food for thought...

Thank you Solomoni Sukamaiigiladi for all that you have done for world peace. We are all owe you one.

However, I do not know what you are trying to imply by saying that theres nothing happening in Fiji. What is happening in Fiji is that there is an illegal lawless regime that is trying to force its rule over us the people of Fiji.

I think too that what you said about the Fiji army... that it has "sheer guts and ingenuity"...is only true of the Fiji army of the past. The actions that we see nowdays from Delainabua are far from that. It shows the work of COWARDS. Civilians are being rounded up, humiliated, sexually abused and tortured. Some civilians have even died at the hands of this new breed of Fiji soldiers who are crapping on the proud traditions and history of the real Fiji Military Forces.

Please if you want to use your experience and take up arms once again to fight for justice and freedom, do so for the unarmed civilians who have suffered enough under the guns and tyranny of this lawless regime.

If you want to be blind to all thats happening and still choose to join "your brothers in arms" up at Delainabua, I would like to warn you that just like Goliath's military experience meant nothing against the faith and audacity of David the little Shepard boy from Bethlehem, your military experience will also amount to nothing.

Well said Nadrokid! Agree with your comments especially about the standing of RFMF on soldiers past.

These lot are a disgrace to the uniform, just rubbish soldiers.

@Solomoni Sukamaiigiladi 12:21 pm.

If we look through history, there is a clear "pattern of failure" associated with a military rule.

If military dictatorship was to be
the best thing that ever happened to Fiji since sliced bread, it would have worked by now.

Instead, it has failed on each one of the three (or four) occasions that it was put into practice in this country.

If military dictatorship had been this nation's destiny, the people
would have happily embraced it and not repelled against it. For twenty years, Fiji and its political institutions have been suffering from a disease.

The military is an encumbrance to our political and social life as well as to the public budget ($100 million per year is spent on the Fiji military). It is a threat to our personal security.

It has violently overthrown 3 democratically elected governments and carried out arbitrary arrests.

Our longest period of democracy and stability will come when the Fiji Military is totally
demilitarized.

Fiji's commitment to peace and stability will begin when it abolishes its army.

@Solomoni Sukamaiigiladi

We humans continue to want peace and dream of peace, hoping against hope that the prophecy of Isaiah will finally come true. Isaiah 2: 2-5

His prediction of the future is indeed encouraging but the cry of Joel seems to be a better description of our present situation:

"Declare this among the nations: proclaim a war, rouse the warriors to arms! Let all the soldiers report and march! Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak man say, "I am a warrior!"" Joel 4: 9-10

The difference in the two passages is that Isaiah is speaking about the world to come; Joel speaks of this world.

Certainly we should be messengers of peace, but we must also be able
and willing to respond to attacks against those we love, those under our care, against those ideals to which we have dedicated our lives. In Augustine's view, when wars are
waged for such good and noble purposes they must be said to be "righteous wars". (Against Faustus the Manichean, 22.75)

Of course the non-violent way to resolve conflict preached by Gandhi and Martin Luther
King is preferable, but this does not mean that we should be passive in the face of injustice. As Augustine wrote long ago:

@1:01 PM. I totally agree. He's clearly and truly OUT-OF-HIS-MIND to say that "there's nothing happening in Fiji."

"I think too that what you said about the Fiji army... that it has "sheer guts and ingenuity"...is only true of the Fiji army of the past. The actions that we see nowdays from Delainabua are far from that."

Precisely. If you look at the real role of the military in Fiji, you will see that it is the backbone of dictators and an instrument of internal repression.

Not-so-sorry Solomoni, but War is a sad necessity in this cracked world. The best that can be hoped for is that it will be carried on in a spirit of charity, aiming not at wreaking vengeance on an enemy but at bringing a peace that benefits both friend and foe.

Does it make sense when others for one reason or another (even reasons that they feel have the highest moral justification) attack the ideals we live by, the church we believe in, the community that nourishes us, to stand by and let the vicious oppressors have their

The Scripture states that there is a time for war. Ecclesiastes 3:1, 8

When is it time for war? When the innocent are being oppressed. Ezekiel 22:23-31

There is such a thing as a just war, a time for war.

It is indeed funny how some of my fellow contributors want to fight for freedom and go to war conveniently using the bible as the justification. I am a humanist and believe in a super being that many refer to as god but i certainly don’t think a book or books written by men such as the bible or the gita and the quran for that matter should be used as justification for any thing. Their is a word for it "fundamentalist". Yes we need democracy and yes we need it soon. But getting it through the barrel of a gun just means we are exactly like Frank. Fiji has been technically broke for many years. I checked the figures we have almost never had a budget surplus post independence. We have never had a trade surplus. We have been borrowing money to fix the deficit for many many years. This is not Franks doing although he has made it worse. Everyone from SDL to the Alliance party has been dipping into FNPF to keep us going. Our borrowings have been largely internal and that is why we have managed to survive this long. The AID money has also helped. Let’s face facts here this countries problems have been compounding for many many years. The MOMI and Natadola saga all started during Qarase's days and not during Franks rein. I am not PRO Frank but facts are facts and i think until the people of this country acknowledge that they have screwed up at the ballet boxes due to their ignorance and personal prejudices we are all just wasting our time trying to get democracy into Fiji again because history will repeat itself. In the meantime those who wish to go to war should heed what the BBC said this morning i.e. “if all of us new what true war was and how close it is to hell no mothers would agree to send their sons into battle”

You cannot defend the indefensible. Not even Ratu Mara tried.

"we are all just wasting our time trying to get democracy into Fiji again because history will repeat itself"

This is a common justification for the subjugation of a free people.

It used to be used by colonial powers. Now being used by Fijians claiming that they are somehow 'ineligible' for freedom "due to their ignorance and personal prejudices".

Disgusting. This is not how government works - a government is meant to be from the people, by the people and for the people.

The military dictatorship is none of these things but is worse: their inept mismanagement of the country has driven it to an economic wasteland from which, even if we get a competent and coherent government tomorrow, will take another twenty years to recover from.

Koroi condemns 'lazy' army by FREDERICA ELBOURNE in the Fiji Times of Friday, February 15, 2008

A METHODIST minister has called for the dissolution of the military and labelled the institution as one that comprised lazy, non-productive members who spent most of their time polishing shoes.

Reverend Josateki Koroi said he outlined this in his letter to the National Council for Building a Better Fiji when he turned down the invitation to join.

"The coup is based on a robbery philosophy. It's like stealing from a bank to set up a school," he said.

"If they want to create a better Fiji, then Frank (Bainimarama) and his army should grow their own food and produce food in their own villages. That'll make a better Fiji, The faster they do this the better."

Mr Koroi claimed the army did nothing "all day, everyday" which led them to pick up their guns and frighten ordinary civilians.

"They don't produce anything yet they receive hard-earned money. The army should be dismissed and their members sent back to the villages where they can farm and produce something for their family. They shouldn't be allowed to depend on people's money.

"In fact, they should not be paid. They don't deserve any wages. The Bible says the labouring people should be honoured and fed, and the lazy should not be fed," he said.

After he declined the invitation to the council, Mr Koroi said he was surprised at a second invitation to join an arm of the council. I was invited to join the second working group in the good governance task team' he said.

Mr Koroi was asked to join the working group on institutional and public sector reform.

"I didn't agree with the philosophy of the charter. The whole thing is illegal. The charter is trying to create a new Fiji. I don't believe a coup can create a new Fiji. Only God can
create a new Fiji and it's our responsibility to respect that," he said.

Mr Koroi said the interim regime wanted to abolish the identity of Fijian people and recreate Fiji into a non-racial country.

"I don't know any country in the world that doesn't have its own unique people. What part of the world has no indigenous people? God made all his people distinct from those of other countries, from India, China, New Zealand and Australia and Fiji is no different. The different people of each country are to be respected for that' he said.

He said it was "totally blasphemous" to deny God's creation from being indigenous people of their country.

"A better Fiji will be built on righteousness, hard work and good governance' Mr Koroi said.

Mr Koroi said another reason he rejected the invitation to join the council and its working group was because of the interim regime's philosophy that might was right.

Military spokesman Colonel Mohammed Aziz questioned whether Mr Koroi was speaking as a military officer. "If so, does it apply to him also? He served in active service and remains on the Retired Officers list. Officers do not resign unless they wish to be decommissioned," was all Colonel Aziz said.
