It is About Sharing

Knowledge is for sharing. Do not keep your knowledge to yourself alone. Let it grows. The more you share, the more you learn and in the end you become a better person.

Malaysian a Laughing Stock - The World Are Watching and Laugh at Us

It has come to a point that it is embarrassing to be a Malaysian. Don't get me wrong. The nation has done nothing wrong to cause the embarrassment. It is our politicians from both the government and the opposition that cause the embarrassment. Where do we put our face if foreigners ask us about the cat-and-mouse chasing game between PKR and BN Beckbenchers, about Anwar's greed to become a PM in an immoral way, the real reason behind the so-called study trip to Taiwan, the use of the ISA against a journalist and of course many more to come? It is ok for the politicians to act in such a manner because politicians were born with thick skin, so that they won't feel ashamed of the silly thing that that have caused or may cause. It is the normal innocent citizen, like you and me who feel ashamed and embarrass with the immature act of our politicians.
.
(1) The announcement for the so-called study trip to Taiwan to learn about the latest technology in agriculture was made few days before the trip. I believe (if at all it was a study trip), it was not planned earlier. This is because the BBC said that they would either go to China or Taiwan but because of the long visa process for China, they might go to Taiwan. Further, few days before the departure date, there were still MPs who were not aware of the trip!!! Hei!!! Even for school trip to the zoo needs proper planning! I wonder how our BBC could plan such an important trip in such a short time? Amazing right. I mean their counter part in Taiwan definitely need to make some arrangement because this is study trip and not a normal holiday. I must salute the Taiwanese people who could attend to the BBC's request for the study trip and make the schdule very tight, as what Fuad Zarkahi said they woke up at 3am for sahur and left the hotel room at 8am and came back at 10pm. Wonderful...very tight schedule and all these was planned in few days time??? Amazing!!! And the BBC wanted the intelligent people like you and me to believe to all these nonsense? It was outrightly not making any sense from the beginning till the end and yet the BBC wanted to make it looks real. Originally the BBC would come back on 17/9/2008. But after the PKR flers went to join the said "study trip", all of a sudden, the study trip had to be ended earlier. And for that, the BBC said that it was as per their schedule i.e. the study trip to end earlier than 17/9/2008. They also bluffed by saying that the date 17/9/2008 was meant if the BBC members wanted to stay back or go somewhere else after they ended the study. My goodness!!! What a crap!!! Our politicians are all adult. It is up to them where they want to go and what they want to do? Why do the BBC needs to set the 17/9/2008 deadline for them to come back? What happen if some choose to celebrate their raya overseas? Any punishment? No right? So, why fixed the 17/9/2008 deadline when it has no importance.
.
And to make it worst, the PKR sent five (5) stooges to Taiwan. Reason? Very obviously to meet the 16/9/2008 deadline for them to topple the government. I thought PKR was smatter than BN but they are all the same.
.
See? The whole world are looking at our politicians who play cat-and-mouse chasing game. All because someone is greedy to become the prime minister. If Anwar becomes the PM, people and the whole world will remember him as someone who gets to be a PM by playing a cat-and-mouse chasing game before getting the ruling party's MPs to cross over, hence, toppling to present government. Every person of sound mind will think what the BN MP's must be given something or a lot of things to crossover to the opposition, so that the opposition can rule the nation while the ruling party will become the opposition. So, are we proud of having MPs who can easily be bought? Who are materialistic? Who put their interest on top and above the interest of the people? That is something for us to be ashamed of and not to proud of. I wonder if the MPs can be bought at any price, one day, sooner or later, our beloved country may be sold to other country simply because our politicians can be bought at any price. When I said our country may be sold, it does not necessarily means that the outsiders are physically here to administer the country. They can in fact doing it by using remote control. Our leader then is only a puppet. So, is that something for us to be proud of?
.
If at all we need our people to learn about the latest technology in agricultre, I think it is better and wiser to send those from the agriculture ministry for the study trip because they need the knowledge and not our MPs. Unfortunately only wise people can thin wisely and silly people think sillyly.

(2) The government has recently used the ISA to detain Raja Petra (a blogger), Teresa Kok (opposition MP) and Tan Hoong Cheng (a reporter). While I am not interested to talk about the detention of thefirst two (2) individuals named earlier, I believe that Albar has made the country a laughing stock when he tried to justify the arrest of the reporter. The ISA was enacted to curd communism and in the present context, it may be used (though I am not in favour of ISA for any reason whatsoever) to fight terrorism though the government is using it as way to fight racial disharmony. But whatever it is, ISA has never ever intended to serve as a protection for any individual of any political party, religion or race. But this Albar said that the reported was detained because the police intelligence believe that her life was has been threatened. My question is very simple. Who threatened her life? Why don't the police go ask arrest the culprit rather than the arresting the victim? In this case, I consider Tan as a victim because her life was threatened. And further, Albar said that it is good that the police hear the first hand information from Tan herself. Wait a minute? What information? First of all, it was wrong to detain Tan under ISA. Second, Albar said the reason behind the arrest was because of her life was in danger. Thirdly, it was just a police allegation that her life was in danger when Tan did not say so. So, what did the police want to know direct from Tan when she did not know anything about her life threatening situation? Funny right? No, it is not funny but it is stupid of Albar to say that. If at all the police want the first hand information about the life threatening situation concerning Tan, they should hear it from their own intelligence and not Tan.
.
So, what was the reason behind the arrest of Tan under the ISA? Albar had tried it very hard to justify but as a citizen of Malaysia, I am not impressed at all. Albar looks stupid with that statement. After all, the police was so confident that after barely 18 hours, Tan's safety was no longer an issue.
.
And to tell it all, read here an article by Tan Hoon Cheng entitled "My 18 hours under the ISA". It really does not reflect the "intention" of the police to give protection to Tan.
