Soldiers who chose anonymity told FijiLive that they “live for tours of duty abroad”.

October 6, 2009 ran a story today about how Bainimarama and his cahoots have their fingers crossed as they await possible new UN Mission. One of the soldiers who wished not to be named had this to say on the subject:
Soldiers who chose anonymity told FijiLive that they “live for tours of duty abroad”.
“It benefits not only our families, but also our children’s education and so on,”
The question we need to ask them is why the world revolves around them? Have they ever stopped to consider that what they are beginning to feel now, ordinary civilian Fijians have experienced since Dec 2006. The mass sacking of permanent secretaries and other senior civil servants. The mass sacking of those over 55 years old and those who dare question the Military. The lay off of countless others that worked the tourism sector.
Have the Military ever stopped to consider that all these people they have sacked out of spite had families to look after, mortgage to pay, children to put through schools, etc.
Sorry soldiers, you cannot have your cake and eat it too!! Take your karma like a man because you shall reap what you sow.
Mean while, the Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement acknowledges the effort of the Australian and new Zealand Government in successfully lobbying for these changes with the UN. It has been our policy from day one when it was part of the resolution passed on the 18th April at the Movement’s formation and something we have lobbied hard for since April.

    The real reasons behind Frank Bainimarama’s act of High Treason on December the 5th. 2006.
    The long running investigation and impending questioning by Andrew Hughes, the then Fijian Police Commissioner, of Frank Bainimarama, regarding his alleged involvement in or knowledge of, the murders of 5 C.R.W. Soldiers in 2000, one of whom, wasn’t even on duty during the killing of other Soldiers at the camp ?
    REST IN PEACE :- murdered by fellow Soldiers,
    Selesitano Kalounivale
    Jone Davui
    Epineri Bainimoli
    Lagani Rokowaqa
    Iowane Waseroma
    And why hasn’t Frank Bainimarama been challenged about the murders of at least 4 unarmed Fijian Civilians since December the 5th. 2006 ?
    REST IN PEACE :- murdered by Soldiers,
    Nimilote Verebasaga
    Sakiusa Rabaka

    REST IN PEACE :- murdered by Police,
    Tevita Malasebe
    Josefa Baleiloa
    Why hasn’t any Fijian Citizen demanded an explanation from Frank Bainimarama and Soldiers of the RFMF, as to their involvement in the systematic illegal detentions, tortures and assaults at the Military Base on Christmas Eve, 2006, against unarmed, innocent, male and female ( one of whom was pregnant at the time ) Fijian Citizens ?
    All these atrocities and crimes against Humanity since 2000, happened while Frank Bainimarama was in Command of the RFMF.

    Soldiers of the RFMF, rather than being deployed as peace keepers, should be arrested for High Treason and crimes against humanity.

    Hear! Hear! Usaia.

    The UN should stop Fiji from representing them abroad because they are a bunch of thugs, who only think of themselves. For them, it is the ends that justify the means, so as long as they can provide for their families, the cause is not important, even if it is treason.

    To test these kinds of thinking, what if Bainimarama ordered the soliders to start killing off selected people he felt threatened by? Would the soliders still do it to keep bread on the table and feed their families?

    The soliders have blood on their hands and will pay for their unlawful actions one day!

    The UN holds the solution to all of Fiji’s problems in their hand: Disband the RFMF, take on all soldiers who have not been implicated or ordered crimes as professional peace keepers. There is sufficient demand for them and they have done a good job in the past. Jail terms for the rest, end of story.

    Its about time some sense is driven into the minds of these blinded soldiers. Blinded by greed, selfishness and lies from their con leader and his cohorts. They must really think that they are the overall custodian and overseer of the nation. So where is that written? In the armoury which they used to seize the government? On the barrel of the guns which they used to intimidate and maim people with? The archiles heels is now exposed and should be attacked to bring down these over armed bandits.

    Bravo Usa and FDFM for the raising our voice and making an impact. Thank Ozzy and NZ for their consistent push which is having a strong impact on these armed criminals who are hell bent on destroying the country. It was pathetic how Frank pleaded with the UN to continue hiring these criminal soldiers for peacekeeping even when they are tainted with their illegal treasonous actions. The criminal ig’s defences are slowly chipping away.
