The lack on comment on this blog regarding the appalling state of affairs in Fiji should not be taken to mean that there is any support for the hijacking of that country by barmy army officers.
Quiet hopes for the peaceful return of sanity and a gentle healing solution (in a Pacific way) now appear dashed.
The events which have taken place in Fiji since the sacking of the legitimate democratic government, and the more recent abandonment of the Constitution and enforced silencing of the media, represent a complete misuse of the trust placed in their soldiers by everyday people.
It is a big shame job for all the soldiers in the Fiji army who have mistaken the megalomania of their frankly barmy commander for legitimate instructions from the people in whose name they serve. They are now no better than armed thugs in a private gang.
For shame, Fiji soldiers, for shame!
