    Subject: response to my comment today !

    It matters not what anyone thinks , this regime decided years ago just exactly what it had in mind and how it would achieve it’s goals . Anyone who believes otherwise , is deluding themselves ! The processes this regime have put into place , are merely a smokescreen to hide their real intent . And one can only assume that that is total dominance over all facets of fijian society . Hasn’t anyone in Fiji understood yet , that Fiji is being sold out to the asians from under your feet , by your own countrymen ?

    These silly Fijians do not know- ha!ha!ha!ha!ha! We are controlling their Military now. We will do it slowly until we destroy all the Fijian Institutions and the their land rights. The silly Fijians including the selfish Ganilau and Bai do not know and do not bother. GENOCIDE is the MISSION. It can achieved politically.

    To India and Manning
    hahahaha…yeah lets start with crashing the South Pacific Exchange dominated by India and the banks! Maybe the Fijians can start thinking about the 6 billion deal now…hehehehe Take your pick!
    Fijians are lousy merchants anyway because their eyes have always been to big for their stomach(traditionally) thus the need to have a corporate body(GCC new look) to curb the crooks that take advantage of the Natadola projects etc. I say Code of conduct is necessary because no chief should be above the law neither are accountants!

    The above post , as you know , was posted in the Fiji Times Online by me in September 2007 . Following my post , are 2 responses which clearly state the intention of those behind this coup .

  3. Budhau Says:

    Manning – you can’t judge the intention of the coup by some response to your online posts.

    One of these idiots can start writing some anti-Fijian stuff in here, pretending to be an Indian – and then claim point out that post as evidence of what the Indians are thinking.

    I think the responses to your above post were for the same reasons.

    Bud,wash your hands please.

    The rise in prostitution,illegal gambling and now human trafficing is a direct result of this regimes open door policy to the two Asian giants.

    Since when were visas issued to Indian labourers to work on FSC projects?.Though contracts were given to Indian companies ,there was no reason for them to bring their under paid workers with them.

    Qo gona na nona cakacaka o raboci Chodo.And yet the authorities turn a blind eye to these major crimes.If they don’t realise what is happening,then all the more reason for their immediate removal,ra yavu boci.

    What authority? There’s no authority in Fiji. Only illegals and criminals backed by the guns of wooden soldiers. All criminals.

  7. Mark Manning Says:

    normally I would agree with what you are saying above , but when i mentioned that Asians are taking over Fiji , I believe the responses were emotional , reactive and without much thought for the fact that they were leaving a permanent record on the net of their stated intentions regarding their own preferred outcome of this coup . So I personally believe the responses are genuine , but of course , one can never be sure . Whether one believes the responses or not , is entirely up to the individual . When I did say Asians , I actually meant the Chinese and Indonesians . I wasn’t referring to the Indians , yet they seem to have exposed themselves in their replies anyway .

  8. Mark Manning Says:

    I agree , there exists no credible soldiers or naval personnel in Fiji anymore , it seems !

    Hey, did you know that Fiji has got the Asian Mafia? The Police a bribed to look the other way. I remember a few years ago a bouncer got stabbed by one of these mobs. (Apparently I heard from one of the bouncers at the scene that his gut came out). That they go in packs. If you hit one they will call the rest to come and buturaki you. Ask any bouncers in the City of Suva. Signals Niteclub is where the gambling and high prostitution is the haps.

    I dont have any problems with our local Asians in Fiji (hell, am related to some of them). However. I do have a problem with the ones that are coming in to Fiji recently. They give all 3rd-4th generation Asian Families in Fiji a bad name.

    Anyone noticed to conflicting reorts in the Media. Re Human Trafficking and USA.

    In Fiji Live is an Article by Naupoto rubbishing the US claims and in Fiji Sun on-line an article about him busting a Chinese trafficking ring of prostitutes posing as language students.. Crazy Man!!!

    @ Wailei – remember when Andrew Hughes had that enormous drugs bust in Laucala Beach Estate?
    RNZI reckoned the street value of the methamphetamine they found was USD600m.

    The following week they revealed this-
    Fiji confirm hotels and restaurants involved in Asian prostitution racket
    Posted at 03:56 on 16 June, 2004 UTC
    Fiji police say there is an Asian prostitution racket operating in Suva, involving a number of restaurants and hotels.
    The police commissioner, Andrew Hughes, says Asian women are entering Fiji on legitimate visas but being diverted to work in the sex industry.
    The Daily Post reports a Chinese restaurant owner known as Mr Big is understood to be charging the women fees of four thousand US dollars each to facilitate their entry into Fiji and act as their pimp.
    However Mr Hughes would only confirm the hospitality industry is involved.
    “We’ve got intelligence that we’re following up on that there are in fact a number of establishments in Suva that are suspect in terms of that sort of activity. But clearly for operational reasons I can’t go into the specifics of that intelligence.”

    Just who is bankrolling this illegal regime?

    We have the right to know.

    God bless Fiji
