Well Bloggers, below is the breakdown of Vore’s budget or in reality it should be called t’he Chand/Samy budget’. It comes as no surprise the Military are the biggest benefactors of the budget because the illegal regime cannot remain in power without their support. Chand and Samy are caught in a vicious cycle because they need to keep the military happy or it will turn against them. The main question is how are they going to pay for this budget? More and more people are going to be lose their jobs by the 1st quarter next year and it will become more bleaker during the 2nd quarter then progressively worse going into the 3rd and 4th quarter. We need to be aware because it is these kinds of situation, that sinister Government’s like the PROC will help prop up the Vore regime to be a thorn into the side of the US and its ANZUS Allies. The PROC has huge economic liquidity reserves compared to the US who is already in a recession. We should also be concerned that it is situations like these that Fiji becomes a pawn like Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis. Cuba was being sacrificed by the USSR to the US, but luckily common sense prevailed and Khruschev turned his ships back to USSR. Whilst we want this illegal regime to collapse and a lawful government restored, we need to be conscious of the international influences involved at the same time who will exploit our situation and who these illegal bastards will veiw as saviours. Have a safe weekend bloggers and we are closing in on the 900,000 hit mark. Lastly, ragone, don’t forget to register on www.solivakasama.org.
