We're back in school with the bullying tactics

Anarchy has peaked in our shores.

While many already have strong but silent suspicions about who exactly is behind this, one would be hard-pressed to ignore the fluorescent coated trail of crumbs leading all the way up to QEB.

Meanwhile the Police do what they do best and fiddle with crusades while houses are almost burning.

We all need to be watching each others backs folks because the people you expect to aren't going to.

Keep it together Rika, Raivoce (and Zinck, Attar Singh etc) -- we're rootin' for ya.

Petrol bombs thrown at homes early hours of Sunday morning
22 Mar 2009 01:54:36

Police have now put a team together to investigate the alleged attempt to set fire to two separate properties using petrol bombs.

Though there are no leads, Police say they are investigating the attacks on the home of director of Global Risk recruiting company, Sakiusa Raivoce and Fiji Times Editor-in-Chief Netani Rika.

It was just after 3am today.

Rika says the men managed to enter his compound because a louvre to one of the living room doors had been removed.

Rika claims the attack was planned.

Rika's company vehicle was damaged two weeks ago - there are no police leads so far.

But he says the attacks won't affect his work as a journalist.

It must be deeply disturbing to any fair-minded Fiji person that the regime-sponsored nighttime terror attacks have escalated from throwing lovo stones at motor vehicles to lobbing Molotov cocktails into family homes.

It is further evidence the dictator believes intimidation is the key to his maintaining control.

It is also a grim reminder that he is a desperate man who thinks nothing of employing potentially deadly measures to achieve his objectives.

In a word, by allowing his goons to carry out this type of illegal activity, Frank Bainimarama is engaging in serious criminality.

In case anyone is wondering, we at FDN have no hesitation in holding Bainimarama personally responsible for this pre-meditated violence and we can point to the evidence that supports our suspicions.

First, each and every victim of these attacks is on the public record as a critic of Bainimarama and his regime.

For example, the latest victim, retired Lieutenant-Colonel Sakiusa Raivoce has made no secret of his opposition to Bainimarama and some of his key supporters.

Raivoce's comments that the RFMF should stick to national security and stay out of politics were widely reported in August 2008.

A month earlier, he openly challenged the eligibility of Lieutenant-Colonel Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara to head the Lau Provincial Council.

More compellingly, there is the fact that the operations of the dictator's "dirty tricks squad" are becoming an open secret, as evidenced by the accuracy of the well informed Freedom Blogger,
Raw Fiji News, when he reported back on 16 March that Sakiusa Raivoce was next on the squad's hit list. He certainly was!

Then there is the complicity of the Fiji police, whose laughable inability to apprehend a single culprit is starting to make the Keystone Cops look like dedicated professionals.

Lovo stones are bad enough, but Molotov cocktails certainly have no place whatsoever in the daily life of our nation.

Just like Bainimarama and his opportunistic supporters, Molotov cocktails are cheap, nasty and totally illegal.

Hey Drippy must have read your piece as he pronounced the big word 'anarchy' the other day ... i wonder if he really understands what it means as he used a lot of big words in long convoluted sentences in his press statement , which to be honest , just didnt make any sense.

In fact it sounded as if he had been smoking one of the Shaista's smokin Naitasiri joints just before he went into bizarre mode.
