Military Presence

I concur with Former Police Commissioner, Mr Frank Short's opinion about the heavy military display at the national elections.

This show of heavy military presence by RAMSI somewhat looked supefluous.

This display of sabre-rattling by the military does not at all deter any possible firebrand that could spark a fashpoint situation into insurgency or another situation like the April riot.

They should learn from their failure in the botch-up that lead to the infamouse April riot.

Besides turning a single stone-throwning incident into a devastaing April riot, similarly now they seem to turned this nation into another Iraq or Afghanistan.

Hope history does not repeat itself this time round.

God bless beloved Solomon Islands.
