We all just love being a big bully don't we. Telling those Fijians how they should behave. Respect democracy. Adhere to one man one vote. We'll punish you when you don't.
It's just so good being the big boy in the school yard throwing your weight around on those little fellows. It makes up for having to be the supine coward when we deal with those bigger than us. So while we preach our great principles to the South Pacific we kowtow to the totalitarian Chinese.
Such is diplomatic life.
