Isn't it. The difference is that the Fiji military has quite a few troops 
with combat experience as "peacekeepers" and mercenaries, and is quite well 
resourced. The Australian bullies might get a bloody nose if they 
intervened. So they've confined themselves to sending ships, and even there 
they lost a couple of commandos in a helicopter accident.
