IS THERE A WAY OUT OF UMNO'S PREDICAMENT?

There is a saying that “a liar will try to undo a lie by concocting another lie, and this will go on until he can no longer lie”. This is exactly the case of UMNO/BN Permatang Pasir by-election candidate Rohaizat Othman, who claimed that he was debarred by the Bar Council because of his partner's wrong doing, and surprisingly DPM Muhyiddin Yasin believed in him.

Now the facts of the case is out in a revelation made by Yusri Ishak, the legal partner of Rohaizat who claimed that it was the latter who had drawn out the money that was entrusted to their company, belonging to the Penang Rubber Smallholders Cooperative. And if the Disciplinary Board of the Bar Council having deliberated the case finds that Rohaizat is guilty of misconduct and was subsequently debarred, what other recourse can Rohaizat take to nullify the decision of the Bar Council. Drag the stakeholders of the cooperative and his legal partner to court? This I think will be silly of him to do.

Rohaizat is deemed fortunate that there was no complain being launched to the police by the stakeholders of the cooperative. And he is doubly lucky that his legal partner did not launched an official complain too. I now believe that Rohaizat knew that he was wrong and he was forced to concoct a lie in the hope of covering up his wrong doing What other lies will he now concoct to pacify the UMNO/BN leadership and to ease the embarrassment he had caused to the party.

I sense that there is a total failure in the UMNO/BN machinery to perform a thorough vetting of their candidate. How could they merely take the words of Rohaizat and his supporters. How could Rohaizat being a lawyer that he is, accepts the nomination knowing fully well that his case will be blown out, thus jeopardising his candidacy. Was there any effort to seek a legal opinion from among the many lawyers that UMNO has? I suppose Rohaizat was trying his luck hoping that his case will not be known, and should he wins, surely his case will be suppressed and silence. But unfortunately, luck was not in his favour.

I was talking to a lawyer friend a few days ago regarding this case, and he fully concurred with me that UMNO had missed a golden opportunity to rid the party of unsavoury candidates. It is pointless for UMNO to continue defending a 'lame duck' in the person called Rohaizat. Any amount of justification will not redeem Rohaizat's honour as a clean, honest and worthy candidate, and should he win, the party will continue to be burdened by Rohaizat's unsavoury past.

To make this matter worse, Zahid Hamidi has ordered deployment of troops there and when questioned he rebutted that the troops are for whatever assistance required. The more Zahid does anything the more mistakes he makes.....Why add more insults to injury Zahid????

We say "Good try Rohaizat!" Obviously UMNO found it's too late to realise the mistake and must go on with it at all costs. Rohaizat is a man of no integrity is a matter of concern for UMNO , but for UMNO to blindly put him as candidate is another different matter. The point is UMNO has made a fool of itself. This time really UMNO BUSTARDISED UMNO!

Don't laugh at them, our military is even worst, corrupt generals get promoted all the way up to retire later with all dignity. What a corrupt dignitaries we have in our Army.

Bro komando,
Zahid Hamidi is showing sign of power abuse faster than any of his predecessors, I think at the rate he is going he will soon be worse than previous Defence Ministers.

A comment from a blogger on the use of troops for Permatang Pasir reads like this:

There is an Armed Forces Council Instruction that forbids soldier, airmen or naval personnel from taking part in political canvassing as what the Minister has done. He has given the Defence Chief an "unlawful command". The umpu bodek generals must stop this illegal deployment. Its a blatant abuse. It has never happened before. This will only happen when Short Service Commissioned Officers become generals.

MIC is on it's way down, MCA is imploding, UMNO is sliding down the shithole. Soon they will meet in the garbage bin of history. That thought tickles my cockles.

To the soldiers, they go anywhere, anytime, to do and die and not to question why, they just obey orders, orders from their superiors, to them that orders are lawful command. Only the superiors, the generals, know if any command is a lawful command or unlawful. Thus, 'No bad soldiers but bad generals'!

Our PTD should have known and should have advised the Minister accordingly on improper employment of military assets in any situation. But he has chosen to play along and serve his political master for his own benefits. His act is questionable, but he is hiding behind the Minister and when the Minister's act becomes questionable, he uses the Minister as his escape route. The mind of a corrupt general always work that way, the mind of the corrupt is always the mind of a COWARD. And we have general but a COWARD!

Why is that a general so choses to risk his reputation by commiting himself in a controversial action if not because he sees a benefits for himself, a small thing that can give him something worthy in return. Why is then in other situations the army is quick to react in excusing tasks which are not their roles? Why is that the army is not used "effectively" as an efficient deterrent force against illegal immigration of the ever increasing intrusions of aliens from other countries? When come to this the army says it is not their roles, it's the police roles. Certainly the army could have done better than the police if they reall have a good plan in optimizing its large assets to protect our country from the "invasion" of the illegal immigrants, rather than wasting time waiting for the war that has never come.

Our generals really do not know how and when to rise to the occasion and commit our army to a noble course for the nation. All they think of is their stomach!
