Bainimarama to his foot soldiers: "If you do not like what the military is doing then there are two gates at the camp and you can walk out"; GCC is not coming back, and playing race card is dead in Fiji!

I dont like a lot of what my army boss has done since 2006 takeover but on this issue I stand by him, and will die, for him. As an i-taukei soldier, I agree that RACE has no place in our country - the best person must be allowed to rule all of us. I have one prayer - military, like the chiefs must stay out of politics

I hate all coups and I hate Frank for protecting his $2million Finance Minister Chaudhry until they fell out. But on his speech, I cheer with him - the Fijian brothers must accept the truth - Indo-Fijians have been in their midst since 1879 - and that is a long, long, time!

Yes, and that applies to i-taukeis and their politicians. If you don't like what Frank and his military are doing, then like the Arab world, stand up and fight. If you are just opportunists waiting for election results and are also cowards, then sneak out quietly from the back gates. Its eight years, and you chaps have been hiding behind your privileged gates. And stop blaming Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum for Fiji's mess. Blame yourselves!

This whole thing of old politicians fostering racial discrimination is a red herring. Its just a (false) platform used by Flankie to save his butt and remain in power. Otherwise why no retrospectively charge Rabuka with treason?! The coup in 1987 was the first ever act of racial discrimination causing racial divide. Why should Rabuka be given immunity if Flankie is genuinely trying to remove this discrimination.

James, having an election will not stop the rot. With a tainted and biased electoral process the elections will never be fair. So if we realise that what do we do?

Franks speech shows that there is trouble within. There is dissent in military and frank is exposed, Once he stands in elections he is finished. He is stupid to alienate the chiefs because the kai viti will move with their chiefs. Further, pamphlets and campaigns are going on right now in kai viti villages organizing against frank and educating kai viti on removal of entrenched clauses by frank. Once the news spreads frank is finished.

The present top army brass will not hesitate to overthrow the chiefs and church leaders if they back SODELPA or call on the people to back the party - get that into your heads!

Had one of the soldiers lifted his gun in Franks direction Frank would have created a third way and exit all paved in shit down the cassava patch !!

FB and his party will win majority of the seats as they will get at least 75% of indian votes and around 50% of fijian votes and almost all the votes of other races.

Soldiers are soldiers for one reason: they are not intelligent enough to do another job. In most countries the military is kept in its place as a institution to be used if there is an external threat. In Fiji the morons have taken control with obvious results.

i think the good sense should prevail...we cannot undo which has happenned....we need to move forward....after election there should be genuine government of national unity....but for sure, frank should not be PM as he cannot rule the goverment on COMMAND....it has to be geniune, mutual understanding with absolute empowerment to the respective Ministers to make decisions in accordance with the rule of the land....Frank has done a good job and i bilieve he should take over the presidency with Aiyaz as his legal advisor...
