Regime keeps Fiji in a choker hold by Coup Four and A Half.

Be afraid, be very afraid because the Public Emergency Regulations will be with us for a long while yet.
The illegal regime is not ready to take its foot of the throat of the nation because the hierarchy loves the power and the privileges, never mind that they're thieves who stole the right to govern.
It will, therefore, keep holding the citizens of Fiji to ransom using the Bible and the gun to help keep everyone in line.

Illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, told Radio New Zealand the time is not right.
"We're going through a reform period and it does require a particular path to take. It also requires that we have media organisations that are appreciative of the reforms taking place. There are a couple of media organisations that aren't."


Media organisations should be afraid, very afraid.


The following article has been around on the internet for a while but is worth another read.


Ways To Get Rid of Dictators
  1. The people overthrow the dictator (often put in place by foreign agencies) and throw him, along with his henchmen and family, out of the country – e.g., the Shah of Iran, Marcos of Philippines.
  2. Organise a violent revolution and have the dictator killed – e.g., Ceaucescu in Romania.
  3. Remove the dictator by legal means like elections but allow him to stay in the country. There's a big risk that he comes back and seeks revenge – e.g., Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua.
  4. Foreign powers (till then maintaining the dictator) force the dictator to exile without armed intervention – e.g. Mátyás Rákosi of Hungary was exiled by the Soviets to Kirgizia in 1970 to "seek medical attention".
  5. Foreign powers march in and remove the dictator (whom they either instated or helped earlier) – e.g. Saddam Hussein of Iraq or Manuel Noriega of Panama.
  6. The dictator kills himself in an act of desperation – e.g., Hitler in 1945.
  7. The dictator is assassinated by people near him – e.g., Julius Caesar of Rome in 44 AD was stabbed by 60-70 people (only one wound was fatal though).
  8. Organise strikes and unrest to paralyze the country and convince even the army not to support the dictaor – e.g., Jorge Ubico y Castañeda was ousted in Guatemala in 1944 and Guatemala became democratic.
  9. Hope that the dictator ages into senility, stops doing any more "harm", and eventually dies when all enemies attend the funeral and praise him – e.g., Fidel Castro of Cuba.
  10. Invite him to seminars and conferences and declare him the "good guy" – e.g., Muammar Gaddafi of Libya has suddenly become the good guy in world media.
  11. Rejoice that the dictator has a change of heart and ways (but only after he dies) – e.g., "el Caudillo" or Franco of Spain decreed that after him Spain would become a constitutional monarchy with an elected Prime Minister.
