Forgive this fourth letter to your paper, but I simply have to comment on today's lead story and photograph.
The presence of RAMSI has contributed significantly to the overall security situation in the Solomons, but one is tempted to ask the question, What price security? when your front page photograph (accompaning the article on RAMSI's 5th birthday event) depicts three heavily armed soldiers engaging with a couple of small children.
Surely, after five years in the country, there is no longer a need for such a heavy military presence, a presence reminiscent of present day Georgia. Where are the blue uniformed bobbies pursuing community policing?
