Recent reports that the illegal regime is considering becoming a manufacturer of arms are further indications of how low they are willing to stoop for so-called “easy money”.
I mea – FFS – these guys can’t even mill sugar affordably with the help of international consultants and aid money. And they expect to be able to manufacture arms?
But clearly THEY are not expecting to do the manufacturing. Some shady overseas “investor” type (read ‘triad’ or ‘mafioso’ or ‘yazuka’ or similar) is proposing to handle the sweat work (probably using sweat shop labour from their home country) and all they need is a location in which to do it and a puppet government of corrupt bastards who are willing to look the other way.
For whom would such arms be intended? We know that China already sells arms to African countries in the grip of civil war (and sells to both sides of the divide, to boot). Perhaps the regime’s investor is another of these? Who knows? Not us – not with this regime’s zero-transparency.
Meanwhile OmniVore continues to supply guns to his troops but only ammunition to his body guards because he’s just not quite sure that his own troops won’t fire on him themselves.
End this illegal regime now, and take us back to free and fair elections. Tabu soro.
God bless Fiji
