Bamboozling Bainimarama’s mixed up Military

December 30, 2009

Here is a non exhaustive list of Fiji’s Military Leaders loser legacy from its first local head, Colonel Manueli on down. They are one mixed up lot, the so called Commanders from Delainabua. Their new year’s resolution should be to not bamboozle us, the Fijian people any longer.

They still pompously strut their stuff bedecked with military medals and British military regalia at Remembrance Day parades confusing only themselves in vainly trying to associate their high treason with valour and honour.

They adorn themselves with honours, awards and promotions befitting war heroes such as Sukanaivalu at Bougainville that fought against Japanese militarism.

They have forever besmirched the glorious fallen of the First and Second World Wars who willingly sacrificed their lives against the evils of tyranny and depraved dictatorship.

They set themselves up as ‘guardians’ of liberal democracy at Independence Day  Celebrations when they did not liberate nor inspire the country to civic nationalism or any other ism but were primarily the instrument of local suppression for  British colonialism and its chiefly power blocs.

They craftily used the Fijian chiefly system as the cunning conduit of their deceptive power grab yet berating and belittling the same system as politically corrupt. Though like a scavenging remora they still swim with Fijian supremacist ethos. Both are still mutually satisfied in their own political Machiavellian designs unknown to their prey-The Fijian people, presently being bought by feel good socialist policies.

Blinded by naked power they jackbooted and frog marched the nation with their convoluted cleanup campaign only to commit the same sins. This time erring impudently without public circumspect by not holding themselves out to accountable scrutiny –all in the name of ‘good governance’.  

They plunder national treasure, ficac’ed all the opposition to limbo and rort the FNPF all in the name of national security and a phantom political enemy they created themselves.

Their installed Police Commissioner corruptly confuses Christian prostelysation with crime prevention only to be an embarrassment and contradiction to their own ‘racial and religious equality mantra’.

They talk racial equality so long as the military remains predominantly Fijian-the vital precursor to power. Obviously now wary that their electoral reform common roll may bring about an overwhelmingly opposite effect to its devious eternal intentions- to remain in power.  

But most of all, they espouse global peace and freedom internationally but nonchalantly suppress human rights and freedom nationally against the norms of the twenty first century akin to Communist China. This is all cleverly borne out in The Peoples Charter document as the military’s ‘human security’ role where they sit above and are involved in politics at the same time.

What more can we say about the bamboozling Bainimarama’s mixed up military- a self pretentious military cum political outfit, morally corrupt from top to bottom?.

Happy New Year and more to follow in 2010…

    If your trying to reach a wider Fijian audience, I think that you should try and put this into plainer language !
    I’ve noticed, without trying to appear supior in anyone, that many people just don’t understand the effects and ramifications of what has been done, compared to what Frank and co. pretend to be doing.
    for example, the super fund is devoid of funds nearly and what that means to those about to retire is, what ?
    That your $50,000 Fijian dollars will now only be released at the rate of $1,000 a year and is really only worth $15,000 !
    Let people know in language they understand, let’s see just what Frank and Co. have turned a once thriving economy into !
    Mr. Qarase had over $1,000,000,000 development in the pipeline before Frank took over.
    That’s all gone now, as have the jobs that go with it.
    People in Fiji need to hear the hard facts because they are still deluded, fooled, in denial and living in la la land.

    Talk about stone age mentality, I can’t believe how many Fijians don’t understand basic Economics and the need to follow the Rule of Law.
    Yet those very same people who support an illegal action of High Treason by a murderous rogue Commander, insist that they are devout Christians !
    Talk about Hypocrisy of the highest order.
    Perhaps, just perhaps, Fijians are reaping what they have sewn and as a Nation, are doomed to a failed economy and years of hardship !

    Bula Vinaka and thank you very much to all those that have kept the fire burning!

    @ Kai Colo you are right on the mark but agree with Mark M – easy to read and understand right ups might be better for the idiots that glorify people like the so called Commanders from Delainabua.

    Have a joyous and healthy 2010!

    Any future government should seriously think of getting rid of the military, Fiji do not need a military. They are an extra burden to the government as their annual budget keep increasing and no real audit have been done on how they use these funds for years.

    We prided our military in the past for their role in peace keeeping and they have really done well. However, the negatives it has brought us far outweight the plusses.

    They have learnt how to control the population in war-torn regions but have used this skill to control our peace-loving nation. Their participation has brought in much needed employment and cash into the country but if all the military were diverted to agriculture, Fiji would benefit a hundred fold more.

    Instant power has made them think that they can run the country (I have talked to some of them and they really think that their way is the best). They uphold Bainimarama as if he is God and do not see the disaster ahead of us if we continue down this path.

    We cannot throw all of them in gaol, however they have shown they work well in their platoons, so keep them together in their small units, provide them with tools and machineries (remember they are used to being provided with clothes, guns, vehicles etc all their working life) and their platoon leader could use the same foul language to get them to run commercial farms that will benefit them and the country.

    I wasn’t referring to the deluded ones in the camp and military !
    I was referring to those who need to have things simplified in a way that really spells out to them, just what the results are of Frank and Co.’s meddling into Government matters.
    Matters, we’re all learning now, they know absolutely nothing about !
    Bring back peter foster i say, maybe he would do a far better job !
    Let’s face it, he couldn’t do it any worse !

    Every nation on the planet has the leadership their people deserve. And Fijians seem to be happy with what they have got since 2006. I am however, still puzzled that every man and his dog in this country has lost their balls.

    Happy 2010

    @ NR, I wonder if that suggestion could be put forward in the “so-called” National Dialogue Forum. I bet nobody is game enough because the military’s participation in politics has been etched in the farter-charter. Where to from here then?
    Very soon the “rash” that has been infecting some bloggers will appear here…watch this space!!!!!

    My understanding is that the Government were already in the process of down sizing the Military in Fiji to around 500 Regular Soldiers, but were also going to establish a Coast Guard.
    I’m guessing that what was determined to meet the National needs, but also reflected the requirements of Fiji, particularly when you consider the need for Border Protection etc.
    This would have enabled peace Keeping Mission with the United Nations to continue as well.

    The fact that bainimarama is making sure through the charter and may be in the new constitution that the military continues to rule does not change the fact that the source of our problem in the last two decades was the military.
    We should not stop reminding everyone of this fact so that one day something will be done.

    Down sizing the military all right, Mark !!!! Now we are witnessing the reverse of everything happening…the military itself downzising, right sizing and reforming the govt…they should know that they are only an INTERIM and policy decisions to reform the civil service should be left to a democratically elected leaders and not for them to dwell on…
    Bhai has made a mockery of himself and his followers when he was unsuccessful in laying corruption charges against Qarase and his democratically elected govt and exercising corruption and nepotism himself by putting his corrupt men in leadership roles within the govt..that is what Reform means to him I guess…Go back to school Bai
