Military Reserves Called Up

April 16, 2009

well Baini use to call up the Reserves and Territorial Forces via announcement on  public radio. Why is he being discrete this time?

The Military trucks are just going out to major settlement and calling up the reserves but guess what, a big majority are not playing ball!!!

No constitution means no power to call up Military and the reserves have just about have enough with what is happening.

And why is Frank trying to mobilise the Reserve Force. Has he reached the lowest level of insecurity now? Lamu tiko vei koya!!!

See how he has gone soft trying to win brownie points with his boys at the camp saying he is willing to return $100,000 of his illegal back pay(an assumptyion of guilt, tobo na butako). Maybe the writing is on the wall and his soldiers have now seen that he is lining his pocket at their expense and are begining to slowly defy him.

Frank is a coward hiding behind his Mama’s (the guns of the military) skirt.

Na boci ga na boci!

    So the crappy speech up at QEB admonishing the boys not to waste $$ was YET ANOTHER lie.

    Jeez if this guys was Pinocchio, you could pole-vault with his nose.

    It could potentially be beneficial to have reserves called up , it has the effect of destabilising the Military , the community and puts the reserves in a position where Frank will potentially be in a position of false security .
    Because once well placed around the islands , the reserves could just as easily lay down their arms and walk out at a critical point of a take over of Frank’s silly regime .

    That is pretty good strategic thinking Mark. A likely scenario amongst many no doubt. The educated ones amongst the reserves may be have been reading the blogs and have probably been enlightened by them. Alternatively, htey have been talking with people who have. So folks keep on blogging and keep on exposing the weakenesses in Frank’s armour

    I don’t thimk Frank was driven by his conscience to pledge before his troops that he will return fully or partly his $200,000 cash payout for untaken annual leave that accrused from the time he joined the Navy as a young cadet. Colonel Azeez’s explainationw as that Frank was indispensible and so he did not take his leave. Come on, stop the taulo. You can’t say Frank was indispensible even when he was a cadet? Nonsense. Frank was not motivated by his conscience because first, he does not have one, and second, his decision was based either from demands placed upon him by his Military Council and also from intelligence reports coming from the people. Clearly Frank’s inconsiderate greed is troubling the masses and the Military Council wants him to correct his actions. Frank will no give up such a large sum of money willingly.

    Fiji troubles bad for whole region: Report
    Published: 7:09AM Friday April 17, 2009
    Source: AAP
    ONE NewsFrank Bainimarama
    Once the jewel of the South Pacific, political and economic trouble in Fiji could mean bad news for the whole region, a new report says.
    The federal government has been warning that the political turmoil in Fiji is taking its toll on the economy and, as a result, hurting ordinary Fijians.
    But in a policy brief for the Lowy Institute for International Policy, Susan Hayward-Jones says the implications of Fiji’s economic decline could be much more widespread.
    “Fiji’s political crisis is indeed grave, but the economic crisis already hurting Fiji citizens also has serious implications for the Pacific Islands region and therefore Australia,” the policy brief says.
    “The full effects of the global financial crisis on the region are yet to be realised and the ripple effect of the deterioration of the Fiji economy on the wider region is difficult to predict with accuracy.
    “However, Fiji’s importance as a regional economic hub means what happens in Fiji matters to the region.”
    Fiji has been widely condemned after the military leadership of Commodore Frank Bainimarama was given greater powers just days after the Court of Appeal ruled his government was illegal.
    In the wash-up from the court ruling, President Josefa Iloilo scrapped the constitution, sacked the judiciary and reappointed Bainimarama until 2014.
    Observers have warned the situation could mean tourism, one of Fiji’s biggest income earners, will plummet and the European Union is already hedging on a deal that could have saved the island’s important sugar industry.
    In order to stave off further economic deterioration, Hayward-Jones recommends Australia, which is holding the Pacific Islands Forum leaders’ summit in Cairns in August, work on ways to deliver finance to Fiji despite the political upheaval.
    Failure to act on the political problems may also mean it becomes necessary for Australia to take a more interventionist approach in the future, says Ms Hayward-Jones, citing the situation in the Solomon Islands.
    Since 2003, Australia has led the international Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) aimed at maintaining peace and stability in the island nation.
    In her policy brief, Ms Hayward-Jones notes that earlier intervention by Australia in the Solomons may have made such a major response unnecessary.
    “The delay in developing an appropriate response while the situation deteriorated and law and order broke down completely meant the policy response required and eventual implemented became much more complex and expensive, costing the government over $1 billion in expenditure on RAMSI,” the brief says.

    It’s been suggested in a new posting here , that Frank , Chaudhry and Frank’s private Secretary are getting kickbacks of $2,000,000, , $1,200,000 and $450,000 each for buying the land for the Fiji embassy in Delhi .
    Apparently , the story goes , the land already houses the Kenyan Embassy and that Frank is paying the Indian Mafia , through the Indian Government , $8,000,000 for something they don’t even own .
    But Frank doesn’t realise that !
    And that’s why he’s giving back the $200,000 !
    But in returning that money , isn’t he exposing the fact that he had no right to it in the 1st. place ?

    It seems that Frank have underestimated the deep sense of loyalty to the cause of righteoueness among Fijians. Fijian have been embedded with the moral compass since birth and most of the time have played the prodigal son. When the prodigal have tasted the wastes meant for the swines, then thought to himself,that He is no swine.

    He stands up and headback for the best he has left behind.It took him quite awhile and I feel that time is now to mobilise and allow the winds of change take place in the hearts of so many silent Fiji citizens and bring back that Democracy that we so much loved to debate about but never throw out, unlike all military bosses after Rabuka or Rabaku.

    And when all this set and done, we will show this Frank that we will try him on the very fair constitution he threw out. Just show him we are levelled minded people and work on the good sustained principles that have been the hallmarks of democratic elected governments with full constitutional powers by the people for the people and especially for the minority like him.

    The Territorial Reserve are not reporting because you cannot fool so many for so long. The longer you reign the more you will reveal the level of mentality you brought into the mix. Handouts after handouts – it has run out, grog session with boys- man do not live on grog only, When the marshlow hierachy of needs sets in, the whole system takes a new turn, it has now for VB. The boys have grown smarter after your handouts and grog sessions. Who is a greater fool now!

    I have been out of a long time from this blog.But since coming back, i havent seen any progress ….i mean it terms of change in Fiji.I like to offer some advice on how we can tackle this situation in Fiji.
    1st….their is only one chief in Fiji who commands the support of his people & who are ready die & they were one of the most fierce warriors during their time.Its been recorded in the some of the Fiji History but has been suppressed in most of the history we know.Even they carried out the first coup in the 1800 century.
    He holds the Key, once bainimarama disturbs his domain,it will ignite this real warriors to stand up.
    Any small civil war or disturbance in Fiji, the UN will intervene.
