Samoa’s delegate to the US House of Representatives has labeled sanctions on the Fiji Government by its neighbours Australia and New Zealand as “shameful”. WHAT ABOUT BRANDING VOREQE'S COUP AS SHAMEFUL TOO..HUH?
In comparison, Eni Faleomavaega said the current US policy is “still light on their sanctions against countries which commit coups”. THAT'S FOR THE US TO DEAL WITH, NOT OUR PROBLEM. A COUP IS A COUP. PERIOD!
“We really haven’t put the hammer on Fiji the way that sanctions usually take place,” he said at a press conference at the Holiday Inn in Suva today after a two day visit here.
“I think there is a lot of opportunity available for dialogue and where the US can be available.” DIALOGUE??? WHAT DIALOGUE??? VOREQE, THE COUP MASTER DOESN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF DIALOGUE...ALL HE KNOWS IS SOME KIND OF MONOTONE TONGUE LASHING.
He told reporters that it’s “very unfair” that travel bans have been imposed on certain Fijian citizens aligned to the Government. JEEPERS!!!! WHAT ABOUT THE FACT THAT IT IS VERY, VERY, VERY UNFAIR ON THE PEOPLE OF FIJI TO BE RULED BY MILITARY GUN-TOTTING IDIOTS WHO ROBBED THEM OF THEIR FREEDOM, LIBERTY, OPPORTUNITIES AND RIGHTS, AT GUN-POINT. SOMETHING ENI-BOY HAS READY ACCESS TO IN HIS NATIVE AMERICAN-SAMOA.
“And I use the classy example of Paul Manueli – a former commander of the Fiji military and former Senator. He was denied a visa to get his knees operated on. That to me is very unfair. He had to go to India to get his visa.” WHOOPEY-DO!!! PEOPLE GET TORTURED AND MURDERED IN FIJI BY THE VERY FIJI MILITARY THAT WAS MEANT TO PROTECT THEM.
“If the object of putting these travel sanctions was to put a hammer on the PM and his associates; what does this has to do with innocent Fijian citizens who want to go overseas to see their families?” MAYBE BECAUSE THIS SO-CALLED INNOCENT FIJIAN CITIZENS HAVE SUPPORTED THIS ILLEGAL GRAB FOR POWER?
Eni Faleomavaega is the chairman of the US House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and the Global Environment. THEN STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW BEST.
Just days after the December 2006 overthrow of the Laisenia Qarase Government, Faleomavaega visited Suva to meet interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, Qarase, the former PM Mahendra Chaudhry and other key leaders.
He concluded then that Canberra and Wellington may be sowing the seeds of civil unrest and violence in Fiji with their “heavy-handed tactics” and “misguided sanctions”. OH MY!!!! WHAT FALSE PERCEPTION THAT IS. MISGUIDED IS SOMETHING ENI SHOULD TELL VOREQE.
He suggested the US assist Fiji to emerge from its current crisis, eliminating its "coup culture" and establish a more stable government. YES, SEND THEIR TROOPS IN AND BLAST VOREQE AND HIS UNSTABLE REGIME TO KINGDOM COME!
NOW YOU'RE TALKING!!!!
