A fair challenge

January 16, 2008 at 8:33 am 5 comments

Since the RFMF and interim government are so intent on squashing opposition and dissent, maybe we should find ways of communicating with them. Their intent already is to use ‘that damned council’ to faciliate discussions around Fiji and nothing else.

I invite them to a challenge. If you don’t accept, then I assume you are scared of the very people who oppose you. Especially when you can’t bring assault rifles to help your cause.  If you don’t accept, then you are chicken shit little ‘tards’ who dismiss the little guy because they aren’t important enough. Talk with the common person rather than the big wigs.

I invite you to faciliate a televised debate. I invite you to debate point for point against those who oppose you. And we’ll do it somewhere neutral. Not Fiji, Australia or New Zealand. Try Tonga, Samoa or another close by nation. So all of us cannot claim an advantage. We’ll make it fair by having two facilitators (one pro-coup, one anti-coup). Make it 2 hours so we can get plenty of points discussed.

We can get interested parties to submit questions. Invited guests have to present evidence on this debate on the validity of their arguments. Power Point slides, videos and the like can be used. The guests can bring their own points and debate them.

This site is not hard to find for the die hard coup supporters. I bet someone who is coup supporter is probably reading this. Go on, cascade the message on to your friends and family. Like the informants you are, tell the RFMF. Tell the interim government.

If you don’t accept, then I will go telling everyone:

“I challenged the RFMF and interim government to a duel. I won by default. Because they were too chicken shit to respond.”

    Simple answer to bananasinpyjamas silly statement, “question we need to ask is where did we go wrong, and why”.

    the useless, interfering, moronic military has caused Fiji to go backwards. Everytime a legal govt gets things going forwards, a military moron sticks his head up, has a coup d’etat and send Fiji back 20 years.

    bananasinpyjamas needs only to look in a mirror to find his answer as to why Fiji is going backwards.

    You and any anti-coup & anti-military junta blogger will win hands down debating these nincompoops, on any level-playing field. That’s a given.

    Great blog you hve here TWF! If they were not threatening us and trying to take us to task over expressing our views at the outrageous LIES that they parade before us every single day since 5Dec06, we would be actively rallying and engaging every man, woman, child and their dog into a mass, non-violent and peaceful demonstration all over Fiji, in towns, villages, community halls, everywhere and demand their resignations and an interim civilian govt appointed to hasten the progress towards elections and parliamentary democracy and let the rule of law take its course in respect of these treasonous criminals.

    It’s never too late though.. and they’re slowly and steadily shoving us, the dissenting masses into that corner.. and no prizes for guessing what a cornered, frightened, angry, insulted, frustrated, unemployed, hungry, nothing-to-lose, people power would do! Fight back! Take it to the streets in hopefully, a peaceful mass demonstration to demand their removal, come what may! Tragic but I think that’s where we’re headed.. realistically.

    It’s no use trying to debate with a bi-polar pig who can’t make an intelligent comment without reading from a prepared speech.

    It would be so much easier trying to get Big Butt Bernie into bed than trying to do what you suggest.

    Of course I wouldn’t mind doing what I suggested,God knows she needs it.

    If we learned anything from yesterday’s inaugural meeting of the National
    Council for Building a Better Fiji, it was this:

    When someone uses armed force to seize power from a democratically-elected government and then proclaims barely a year later that he wants his nation to be “truly democratic” you know there is something seriously wrong.

    In the case of Fiji, what is seriously wrong is the man with a gun.

    When Voreqe Bainimarama pointed that gun at Fiji’s head on 5 December 2006 he justified his action on the grounds they were necessary to “rid Fiji of corruption” and carry out a “clean-up campaign.”

    But Bainimarama has not only failed spectacularly to produce any real evidence of corruption (except within his own administration)/ his regime has committed gross human rights abuse, compromised the judiciary and sent the economy into a nosedive.

    Yet/ despite all this, we had cause for hope. At the 38th Pacific Forum Meeting in Tonga on 17 October Bainimarama pledged that Fiji would have a general election in “early 2009.”

    But this proved to be a hollow promise, as demonstrated when the dictator went into a furious back-pedalling mode and stated on Thursday 10 January that the election promised for March 2009 would not be held until the charter was “fully implemented.”

    Does that make sense? Well, this apparent conundrum only makes sense if you know the facts.

    FACT ONE: Bainimarama’s real purpose in staging the coup was to extinguish the near-completed investigation into his involvement in the murder of five soldiers in November 2000.

    FACT TWO: The corruption scenario was a diversionary tactic. The coup was all about enabling Bainimarama to disarm the police, remove the highly competent (and honest) police commissioner, Andrew Hughes, and thus put an abrupt end to an investigation that could have led to substantial jail time.

    FACT THREE: If it is not drawn up and implemented under the aegis of a legally elected parliament the so-called people’s charter has no legal or constitutional basis in Fiji (which, as it happens, also applies to the “powers” of all the office bearers in the current “interim” administration!)

    FACT FOUR: The current junta is using the charter as a means to validate its hold on power by providing a means to dishonour the undertaking made to the Pacific Forum leaders (and to the rest of the world, when you think about it).

    FACT FIVE: All of the above means that in the eyes of the international community Fiji remains a pariah state and yesterda/s guff about “culturally vibrant” democracies will not make one iota of difference.

    FACT SIX: Democracy does not happen because one man says it is going to happen. Democracy happens when ALL the people are involved.

    FACT SEVN: The only “way forward” is for Bainimarama to lower his gun. He should take his troops back to the barracks and let the people of Fiji rebuild their democracy by the time-honoured method, known as free elections.
