  1. Fiji military stokes coup fears,20867,20843383-1702,00.html

    bad sign when the head upholder of 'law and order' has to do a runner for personal safety reasons

    coups and impasse for 20 years now. and at every crisis the situation seems to be getting more polerized with higher tensions.

    its not going to be a pretty end to this standoff, nor one which is going to be solved in less then a few generations.

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    I'm with Bainimarama on this one. If you stage a coup with the audacity that Speight did then let him off you pretty much are sure of a repeat.

    At the end of the day like Turkey and Pakistan the Army in Fiji are the arbiters of government. Pi$$ them off and out you go. Idiots in government start to beleive their own spin and then look what happens...Musharref(sp) anyone :)
  4. Well according to the beeb, unless their PM stands down, the show kicks off at noon, local time, which is midnight GMT. So the question of the day is, do you think they'll show it live or will I have to wait for the extended highlights tomorrow?
