Another Fool of a Took

You remember the scene in the Lord of the Rings where Gandolf berates Peregrin (Pippin) for idly tossed a stone into a deep well in the dwarf-hewn caverns of Moria?

In exasperation Gandalf soundly berates Pippin with words that we will blatantly plagiarize today—“Fool of a Took!!”.

Ladies and Gentlemen let’s have a round of applause for Corporal Maika Vuniwawa for being damned tookish enough to think that the inner circle of the IIG will bail him out for the murder of Nimilote Verebasaga.

They won’t buddy. You are soooo rowing your canoe solo towards your fellow murdering mates up at Naboro. Unless of course Commander Ioane Naivalurua comes galloping to your aid with another free pass letting you loose again in society, contrary to the proper norms of justice.

The fact is the IIG will not want to be tainted further by additional guilt by association and they will keep those reserve powers only for themselves. It’s all about self-preservation—theirs that is. Unfortunately Vuniwawa you don’t make the cut.

In case you didn’t get the memo Vuniwawa, you are merely an expendable asset. This surely should not be new to you. All militia types live by solemn oaths bound by the understanding that when push comes to shove and you are sent to the front-lines, you offer yourselves as servants of your flag and country and are therefore mere pawns furthering whatever strategic intentions have been bedded down by others above you.

Let’s hope those other foolish tooks currently blindly following orders to violently stamp out, by intimidation, vociferous opposition to the IIG get the hint. Somehow we know it’s a long shot.

Vuniwawa’s lawyer, Haroon Ali Shah, for the record seems to be racking up his street cred quite nicely for defending murderers. Vuniwawa is well advised to seek legal counsel that can give him the straight-up, unedited truth re: his options. The truth will set you free tamana. Just plead guilty and for your flag and country take it like a man.

Poor stoopid Foolish FTooks the lot of em.

What Vuniwawa lacks, that the illegal regime has in spades, is 'plausible deniability'. For instance, the Rabaka 9 are now ensconced behind bars for manslaughter. They know that they were only following orders. The regime knows that they were only following orders. The regime also knows that there is no physical evidence of those orders (other than the soldiers, and they ain't squawkin'), therefore nothing that can trace the orders to them in a court of law. Plausible deniability. Vuniwawa, who has since woken up and smelled the coffee, had believed he had carte blanche to despatch disobedient civilians. He now knows the regime only gave him that impression because once civilians started dying there was no way it could be traced back to them beyond a reasonable doubt.
Plausible deniability, sotia. It's what you give the regime, but they don't give back to you.
God bless Fiji

Ooops..the Germans called it "Anstaltshandeln" or "Institutionally commanded action"...Just following orders!!It is unfortunate whilst Military bureaucracy dictates, the actions of these men now accused of murder or the lesser evil called manslaughter had no idea that ultimately their loyalty to their commander in followig such orders was going to backfire on them.

Vore Bhaini & his cronies who have conveniently elevated their status to that of wannabe Politician & whilst claiming to be the Military topman have conveniently moved into an area of 'immunity' where they cannot be held accountable for the follies committed by their functionaries.

Somewhre, somehow they will have to answer up!!

Is it just us - the non-military personnel that see this blanket technique by Vore and his coward gun-power military council?

Poor soldiers...well can't really feel sorry for them soldiers for not being too bright eh.

You reap what you sow...one day Mafatu, for Vore his MC and the President.
