'Coup by stealth' underway in Fiji

'Coup by stealth' underway in Fiji: Fiji's military disarmed the country's police force and threw up roadblocks around the capital on Monday in what Australia believes is a coup by stealth.

The Pacific nation's embattled Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase was holed up at his home in the capital, Suva, on Monday night after armed soldiers stopped him from trying to see the president.

More political fun in the east. This kind of stuff is something more people in the US need to know about. While we're here voting to curtail the the rights of people and making obscene accusations about "the other party" there are people in this world who are hoping to have something other than anarchy when they wake up in the morning.

Next time someone tells you how bad the US is remind them about Thailand, Sri Lanka & Fiji.
