ONE MALAYSIA – IT IS HOPELESS UNTIL WE DECIDE TO ACCEPT CHANGE

Last night, I was at a wedding reception of the daughter of a retired colleague, Lt Gen Dato Abdul Aziz Hassan whom I had befriended since my days as an army cadet. He was my senior though, and our friendship was to last till our final days in the army. Interestingly, he was to become my boss when he was promoted to a three star general to assume the post of the Army Field Commander, and I as his Chief of Staff Operations.

I remembered that on his first day in office, he called me up and the first thing he said to me was, “Arshad, you are still my friend”. I never thought that he would say such a thing because, I had always taken him as close friend, and never doubted that he would dismiss me, now that he was my boss. How else could I response, but to say that I appreciate his acceptance of me as a friend, and that I will truly serve him as my boss. Unfortunately, my tenure as his Chief of Staff was short, because I was due to go on retirement, and had willingly shorten my pre-retirement leave to only three months, instead of a six months accumulated leave, at the request of my boss.

The wedding reception was a reunion of retirees of sorts. I guess a majority of the guests were military retirees, a few serving military officers and close civilian associates of the General. But what amazed me is the mixed of the various Malaysian races; Malays, Chinese, Indians, Punjabi's, Caucasian and a number of Europeans.

I am struck by the harmonious excitement and friendliness of the guests that showed little to associate themselves with the on-going squabble among politicians concerning the issue of race, and the much talked about supremacy of one race over another. The guests that was at the wedding reception that evening have shown what Malaysians are truly like, and I would say without any inhibition that it is the military that has always been practicing the One Malaysia that PM Najib is now propagating. For those not in the military service will never understand what I have said, and we do not play a racial card in our service to King and country. All races are treated as one. We adorn one uniform, and we only speak one common language i.e the military language.

Having left the military service that I adore, it saddens me to witness how much the Malaysian society is so divided, and I attribute this to the narrow mindedness and self centered thinking of some selfish politicians who only think of themselves, perpetuating the needs of their own race, and never wanting to think that others are equally a part of a greater society, in which they are also a part of.

Honestly, I have little faith in the success of the One Malaysia that we now talk about, unless and until we break the 'taboo' that no one race is superior to another, and that all races begin to talk about wanting to help one another, live among one another and learn to respect each others racial and religious sensitivities.

At a time when I am already in my twilight years, it is the fear of my grandchildren more, that they will all suffer the consequence of the bickering of our politicians today, that will make them be part of a society that is constantly divided, and in endless squabble over the issue of race.

Hello Dato, I was wondering if you were there last night considering the number of Generals attending. I was curious if Lt. Gen. (B) Azzuddin attended the dinner as well. I attended as part of the Groom's invited guests.

ArshadRaji said...

Dear Legion,

I was there seated at Table 69 and Gen Azuddin was not seen. Just wonder who are you?

Dear Dato,

Yes, the MAF is good vehicle for national integration but it has limited function towards national unity unless we have nation-wide citizen force implemented under the Total Defence concept.If we were to embark on this course, every citizen is a soldier therefore what you saw at the wedding can be replicated at all level of our society.

At the moment I doubt if we have the political will to abandon the current concept of maintaining a large standing force and replace it with a Total Defence Concept comprising of a small standing force and all citizen Army.

Race relations could have been better if only our communities support the National Education policy to the full.Instead they continue to sabotage it with their unwillingness to give up the vernacular schools and complete boycott of the Sekolah Wawasan concept.

It seems we are incapable of putting aside our narrow-minded community agenda in favour of the larger national vision of a united Malaysia.

Only economic development and prosperity could provide the glue to a future united Malaysia.We need world class innovators, entrepreneurs and business men to provide the glue.

Legion™ said...

Hi Dato, I was at Table 28 and was Syahir's classmate from high-school.

Dear Maurice,

The National Education policy is flawed.

Until the nation abandon the notion of race-based policies, politics and mindset, nothing can be changed.

Personally, I feel that the MAF is only good for national integration using the uniform as the basis. In terms of competitiveness, such as rankings, unfortunately race becomes an issue.

An example, my father and my uncle were budak boys in the 70s and my father was an acting Lt. Col. of his engineering unit back in the 80s until when the actual promotion board was approved, his junior officer was promoted to Lt. Col. while he retain his rank as a Major with his junior as his new superior officer. He chose to retire immediately after that.

Dato, during the wedding dinner last night, did you notice that most (if not all) of the invited Generals were Malay while the non-Malays were mostly Majors.

Until our nation can grow beyond thinking of race within the national interest context, no real progress can be made.

maurice said...

Dear Legion,

Appreciate very much if you could elaborate a bit on your statement that the National Education Policy is flawed.Please amplify your statement so that we can learn from from each other views.

Thank you.

Legion™ said...

The National Education policy is flawed because the government wants you to learn what they want you to learn, not what you should learn to contribute to the nation.

WaliMuar said...

Dato,

My apology for deviating from the topic.

I like the way u put your thought across to be heard , and to be assimilated by your fellow exservicemen at large.Beside highlighting the rampant ,daylight corruption practices in Mindef I think u have yet to touch the welfare part of our life now as exservicemen which shall be our priority vis to vis the forthcoming Akta Vetran ATM mooted by Zahid Hamidi and drafted by Gen Zul Mazlan JHEV.The least we shall be invited for is a dialogue with Mindef and JHEV as we are the effected party brfor this Act is table and approved by Parliament.

For the Minister I think he has a very major political agenda with this new ACT considering the number of exservicemen and families as a target group ,2 million will not be very optimistic.For me if the Government is not calling us exservicemen for a discussion befor the Act is table to Parliament I will see Mr Karpal Singh,Lim Kit Siang,Anwar Ibrahim,Teresa Kok and the rest of the Pembangkang to highlight our current predicament with MINDEF.It is not a threat ,but exercising our legal and constitutional right per se as a citizen who have sacrifice for the nation and we are not a bunch of fools who swam the English Channel and confered Datukship for an idiotic job.
Our contribution to the nation is enshrined in the Federal Constitution and Akta AT 1972 which compulsorily made Askar Melayu Diraja as the undisputed protector of the Malay race in this country , a will sealed by our forefather Sultans.So Datuk we shall make it happen ,please bring back the glory RAMD.

FMZam said...

I like it when you said it out Dato', that you have little faith in the success of 1 Malaysia. I like it even more if you would say it out loud like a man that you have little faith in Najib, because Najib is 1Malaysia and 1Malaysia is him.

Please Dato', this is not a mattter of hating a person for one part and liking him for other parts. This is a matter of FAITH and Najib is FAITH and all he preaches are FAITH! He is the PM he cannot fall back from where he stands just because some of us lost faith in what he preaches. And he will preach more and more until someone else takes his place and continues preaching for us all to lose faith.

Nothing happened to them, everything happened to us the rakyat, because the rakyat believe in their preaches for the preaches give the rakyat HOPE and DREAM, until we lost faith. Nothing happened to them preachers, because they themselves don't believe in what they preach!

FMZam said...

What is that actually "Perjuangan Melayu" that makes the Malays are ever struggling then and now that UMNO is championing? This country has been ruled by UMNO since Merdeka and has made many UMNO politicians rich and famous and elite for generations.

Come on man, this has been UMNO's country and we have been ruled by UMNO for more than 50 years and still the Malays are made to keep struggling for their rights? Why is it so difficult to finish it once and for all so we all can live in this country the way UMNO wants it for as long as UMNO is in power?

Fighting for the Malays' rights should have been achieved because the Malays have been living with that rights for generations, only that the fruits of labour have NOT been reaped by the "right Malays" and we are made to struggle forever until we wonder we are struggling for whose rights actually? and where did this Malay rights go wrong to make us struggle for so long?

Give a hundred more years this "perjuangan" will never be accomplished by UMNO and the shout will get even louder FOR, and will also get more louder AGAINST it. Because we are people, we are human, we are not stagnant, we live and die, we breed, we multiply, into the citizen of various races of this country. And the 'perjuangan" will see that its gap of achieving the rights gets wider and wider with the growing population of the Malays, and also the growing population of the "curious" non-Malays.

As long as the "perjuangan" exists, UMNO will survive at least a couple hundred more years. HIDUP UMNO and TRANSFORMASI UMNO and 1 MALAYSIA are for UMNO because that what makes them IMMORTAL, nothing else.

We will remain divided because BN is all about RACISM.....

komando said...

FIELD MARSHALL ZAM

HOW COULD I "NEVER" AGREE TO WHAT HAS BEEN SAID BY YOU?

YES THE MALAYS ARE ALWAYS WORRIED THAT THEY WONT HAVE A PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY, SO UMNO KEEPS HARPING ON THIS ISSUE.
THEY WANT TO SURVIVE AND TO DO IT THERE MUST BE A STRUGGLE! PERJUANGAN ! SO THEY SAY..

WHO THEY ARE STRUGGLING FOR ONLY GOD KNOWS!

THEY HAVE BEEN RUNNING IN CIRCLES AND THE CIRCLES ARE GETTING SMALLER BY THE SECONDS..TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

IT IS A MATTER OF TIME ONLY
WE SHALL SEE THE END!

ONE MALAYSIA! AS THOUGH WE HAD THREE OR FOUR PREVIOUSLY?

DID WE HAD ONE - MALAYS ONLY
ONE FOR CHINESE
AND ANOTHER FOR INDIANS

WHAT ABOUT THE REST?????

TIMES UP...!

komando said...

Dear readers, this is a MUST read article, I beg your pardon Dato' Arshad for relaying it here. The truth of the matter that we in this country is currently facing..please forgive me sir!

MY salam to all..

The last Prophet warned that “before the Last Hour there would be great liars – so beware of them” (Sahih Muslim). We recognize this to be the Last Age, and we seek refuge and protection with Allah from the international bullies who hid behind a mountain of lies and deception in order to plan and execute the 9/11 attack on America, as well as the 7/7 attack on London (i.e., July 7th, 2005), and to then put the blame on innocent Muslims. They did so, the first time, in order to exploit the opportunity to brutally attack and colonize Afghanistan and Iraq (while again hiding behind a mountain of lies) and to take control of Iraq’s great rivers of water and huge oceans of oil. This second time around the attack is on the religion of Islam itself, the institutions of Islamic learning, and the rightly guided scholars of Islam.

We must now prepare ourselves for attacks on scholars of Islam who would be defamed as homosexuals, or exposed in manufactured photographs of them in bed with prostitutes. We can expect concocted emails or false tape recordings of fictitious telephone conversations with terrorists, or illegal drugs planted in their homes. We are targeted by enemies who have already assassinated the illustrious scholar of Islam, Prof. Dr. Isma’il Faruqi, and the courageous Muslim rulers, King Faisal bin Abdul ‘Aziz of Saudi Arabia and General Zia-ul-Haq of Pakistan, and who removed Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Shareef from office in a plot that is still unraveling, and who will use any means in pursuit of their goal of ruling the world from Jerusalem.

komando said...

continued...

May Allah protect us from the skillful enemies who infiltrate the ranks of Muslims (including Islamic websites) and seek to discredit our scholars and writers who dare to expose the lies and deceptions involved in the ongoing so-called war on terror. And may He protect us from the cowardly, shameful and despicable acts of terrorism which kill innocent people, and for which innocent Muslims are then blamed. Amin!

The blessed Prophet prayed to Allah Most High and asked: “Oh Allah (kindly) show me truth as truth and grant that I might follow it, and (kindly) show me falsehood as falsehood and grant that I might reject it.” We also pray for eyes with which to see so that we may be protected from the blindness of those blind scholars of Islam who swallow all the lies of which the blessed Prophet warned, and who then lustily join in the unjust chorus that defames innocent Muslims. They are a people who would never recognize or admit that the imposter Euro-Jewish State of Israel has been the major beneficiary of the so-called ‘war on terror’ and the acts of terrorism for which Muslims have been blamed.

Yet those scholars offer themselves (doubtless with the blessings of the British and American governments) as spokesmen for Islam and as guides for Muslims in the present age. The blessed Prophet condemned certain Islamic scholars as “the worst people beneath the sky” (Sunan Tirmidhi). He was surely referring to them. Muslims should avoid them the way they would avoid a plague.

Allah Most High has chosen to begin the Qur’an with a statement concerning believers, disbelievers and hypocrites. He has informed us that He has sealed the disbelievers’ hearts, as well as their hearing, and that He has placed veils before their eyes in consequence of which they are a people who have ‘eyes’ and yet cannot see, ‘ears’ and yet cannot hear, ‘hearts’ and yet cannot perceive the truth (Qur’an, al-Baqarah, 2:7). In addition, Prophet Muhammad has warned of the coming of an age in which “there will be wrong beliefs which will blind and deafen men to the truth” (Sunan Abu Daud).

There are those who would read this essay and be totally opposed to all that is written in it. They would perceive no truth at all in it since they are totally incapable of perceiving truth, either because their hearts are sealed, or because they are totally brainwashed. The British, American and Israeli governments and the media houses that they control are like that, and it is precisely such people who now control, among so many others, the Pakistani government. They even have Islamic scholars who dance to any tune that they play!

And then there are others whose hearts are still alive and who are receptive to truth. They will easily recognize the truth in what we have written, and would be keen to further embellish that truth with further inputs, observations and analysis. And if they discover anything in this essay that is incorrect they would seek to correct it without detracting from the truth that they have discovered elsewhere in the essay. This essay is written for such people.

Faith in Islam gives to Muslims the assurance that lies and falsehood can never survive forever, and that truth would one day prevail over fiction, and righteous conduct over wicked evil deeds. There is an evil storm blowing through the world today, and it is sweeping into the hellfire all those who do not have a firm grip on truth, and do not display righteous conduct.

komando said...

last part...

The world is today controlled by a godless power the likes of which history has never previously witnessed. In consequence of the relentless attacks of that evil godless power the world today can be likened to a ship that is sinking with all of mankind on board, mysteriously globalized for the very first time in history as one society, with no one capable of preventing it from sinking. The amazing thing is that very few amongst mankind have eyes with which to see and recognize that the ship is sinking, while the overwhelming majority, particularly those who control newspapers, television and radio, either transport others or are themselves transported to a view of the world that obscures and conceals that grim reality. The difference in the external world between a so-called free democratic civilized ‘appearance’ and the brutal godless ‘reality’ of the greatest slavery of all has never been greater!

For their amazing sophistication with which they dazzle and seduce mankind, their unprecedented and ever increasing power with which they control and rule mankind, their monstrous evil with which they brutalize and oppress mankind, and their awesome powers of deception with which they deceive, misguide, corrupt and destroy, the godless evil powers that today control the world are unique. In fact it is Islam that can guide us to that ‘reality’ with which we can recognize and understand Gog & Magog as well as Dajjal, the false Messiah or Anti Christ, as the godless evil powers who have the world firmly seized today in their destructive grip.

maurice said...

Dear FMZam,

Yes, the Malays will have to fight for its rights otherwise we will be marginalized like the American Native Indians in the USA and the Aborigines in Australia. They are left to their own devices as they do not have political parties to fight for their rights and interests.

The democratic features of this country neccessitate the Malays having a party like UMNO to protect its political rights otherwise we will be doomed for ever.

The fault with the Malays is that we have been unable to rise to the challenges of the politicians to change our characteristics so that we could emulate the success of others.TDM tried to instil some Eastern values of hardwork, honesty, dedication and loyalty but it was not entirely successful. We remain a race known by the 4D (degil, dengki, dendam dan derhaka). We have to change our attitude and behaviour otherwise we will be a forgotten race in our homeland.

FMZam said...

Saudara Walimuar, very gud morng to you brother,

I sense your concern over the Akta Veteran and went on to find the reading material on it but did not see the way you have voiced it so alarming, as if you knew something that we didn't.

If the Akta to establish Majlis Veteran Malaysia to put all various ex-servicemen associations under one roof is another hoodwink by the government was what you meant by Zahid Hamidi "has a very major political agenda"?

But that Akta when materialised would answer the confusion of many ex-servicemen why we have many ex-servicemen asssociations instead of one.

I don't intend to meddle into this as I am not a member of any of them like many other ex-servicemen who'd rather stay away from joining. And I am sorry if I say that I'd vote for a single unified ex-servicemen association, though we know of the blood feuding that had made ex-servicemen resorted to different organizations.

Zul Mazlan (a Muarian like you) must have been working hard to concoct the "unifying potion" to "taming the shrews" to get all the war lords of the associations to the meeting tables.

And like many other "unassociated ex-servicemen" I think the ex-servicemen have been too long disassociated and divided into these "military ethnic organizations". I thought we should be at peace living in retirement with all brother officers and ORs as equal soldiers, not another warring factions.

And all the good fishes in Muar river have long gone because of pollution from up river...and we are now the fishes running away from the polluted water.

FMZam said...

Saudara maurice,
It's so heartening reading you, a non-Malay assuming from your nom-de-plume, talking on behalf of the Malays. Well what the heck if you are a Malay afterall who is a Malay, under our definition, anyone citizen who professes Islam.

If you said the attitude of Malays is 4D, don't stop short of saying there are even more dangerous Malays with the attitude of all Ps - Penipu, Pembelit, Penghasut, Pengintip, Perasuah, Pemakan rasuah, Pendurjana, Pura-pura, Pengkhianat, Pembelot, Pendusta, Pemain wayang, etc, etc and above all Politik!

maurice said...

Dear Walimuar and FMZam,

Although I have not seen the draft of the Veteran Act, I would like to offer my views as to what is in the ofting.

The Veteran Act when passed by the Parliament will be a national legislation to look after the welfare of ex-sevicemen and their families.The nation has finally recognized and endorsed the position of ex-servicemen in the society.

There can only one organization to which all ex-servicemen belong and that would be JHEV which has the necessary power and financial resources to look after the welfare of all ex-servicemen.This means as I have commented a few weeks ago, the PBTM will have to be dismantled as it would become unnecessary and redundant.

I expect the Veteran Act will list out a string of benefits to ex-serviceman such as free ride on public transport, discounted price on cars, motorcycles, fridge,tv, handphones, essential goods such as rice, flour, sugar. coffee, tea, vegetables, meat, fish etc.Special programmes and assitance will be introduced to help ex-servicemen to succeed in business.The government will also look after the educational and health requirements of the ex-servicemen families.

If the above is true, then should we not welcome it with open arms dan penuh kesyukuran?

komando said...

FMZAM THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS...

Maurice, why have you got to hide and shoot around?
Come out in the open, say it is wrong when its is wrong, and right when it is right.
IT Shows that you fear man rather then GOD!

How sad, hope you read the LONG ARTICLE I POSTED, LAST NIGHT !
READ IT WITH AN OPEN HEART...SEDAR LAH WAHAI INSAN SEMUA....

MALAYS ARE A FICTION OF YOUR IMAGINATION:
I HAVE EXPLAINED A THOUSAND TIMES: ACCORDING TO OUR MALAYSIAN CONSTITUTION A MALAY IS : A PERSON WHO IS A MUSLIM (ISLAM) PRACTICES MALAY CULTURE AND SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE!

SO NING BAIZURA'S, ANITA SARAWAK'S HUSBANDS ARE ALL MALAYS! CAN'T YOU GET IT? A LOT MORE OF OUR LOCAL ARTISTE HAVE MARRIED WHITE AS WELL AS BLACK MAN ...THEY ALL "AUTOMATICALLY BECOME MELAYU's"

ONE HAS JUST GOT TO APEAK MALAY - SELAMAT PAGI, MAKAN BELACAN DAN TOMPOYAK...THAT SIMPLE...

ALOT OF PAKISTANI, ARABS, SIAM, JAWA, JAVA, BECAME MALAYS THROUGH THIS MANNER, EVEN A PURE INDIAN BLOODED MAN CAN BECOME ONE AND RULE THIS LAND FOR 22 YEARS OMG!

CANNOT CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION NOW, BECAUSE THE WHITE MAN FROM ENGLAND WROTE IT FOR US...WE DID NOT THINK OF THE CONSEQUENCES THEN!

OUR LAWYERS WERE NOT TOO BRIGHT THEN!

MAURICE PLEASE CHANGE THE ATTITUDE AND GET OUT OF THE COCOON...MALAYS MUST CHANGE AND UMNO MUST CHANGE OR ELSE DEATH IS ON ITS WAY!

IF UMNO SAYS ANYONE WHO IS NOT HAPPY LEAVE THIS COUNTRY...DON'T YOU THINK UMNO IS CHILDISH ?

IF THE OTHERS LEAVE WHAT WILL BECOME OF YOU...?

ALL MONIES TAKEN OUT ALL PROPERTIES SOLD ALL BUSINESS CLOSED!

BANKS WILL BE EMPTY WITHOUT ANYTHING LEFT...CAN YOU LIVE ALONE IN THIS WORLD.

WE WANT SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUALITY...ISLAM PROMISES THAT, THE GREAT PROPHET MUHAMMAD saw PBUH HAS SAID more than 1400 YEARS AGO, ALL ARE EQUAL...NO MATTER WHAT THEY BELIEF AND PROFESS!@

Treat them equal and earn their respect, show mercy, have compassion and they will love ISLAM...UMNO sure is doing the OPPOSITE !

WAKE UP !

maurice said...

Dear Komando,

Listen there can be no social justice where the majority of the population still live in poverty.Just take a drive along the coast from Kuantan to Kota Bahru, you will see what I mean.Ramshackle houses dotted the coastline.I have seen the same houses standing there for the last 30 years without much improvement.The same scenario can be easily seen elsewhere, everywhere in Malaysia.

As a fellow Malaysian don't we have compassion for them?Is it wrong for the Malays to fight for their rights in their own motherland?

FMZam said...

Saudara maurice,

Either you are cunning or honest or naive, I take it at face value you are all. I don't know which stretch of the coastal road you took to have seen those ramshackle and makeshift houses you claimed.

You sounded like a retrograde movie, sorry I don't mean any offence in saying this, but you certainly have taken us into a Twilight Zone of 30 years ago when I was a small boy living in Trengganu.

Cut it off maurice, please click your Google Earth and fly over the stretch you mentioned and see how much it differs from your 30 year old map.

WaliMuar said...

Dear Maurice and FMZam,

Both of u are brilliant as u can read my mind when I touches on the issue of Akta Vetran ATM. What my great concern is that we the exservicemen and our families should not be made a "lembu cucuk hidung" to some aspiring politician who are in power.Hopefully this Akta will act as a unifying organ to all exservicemen association nationwide,including PBTM who has to face a High Court action on 20th August 2009 with a possible disbandment looming above its head.

maurice said...

Dear FMZam,

I am referring to the village houses along the secondary coastal road, between the Gambang industrial area and Cherating.The houses have not changed much from what I first saw as a young man doing some work there.

Please don't tell me otherwise as I was there with my family a month ago.

FMZam said...

Ok maurice, have peace with your life, that portion must have been forgotten by Pahang UMNO or must have been neglected by UMNO for whatever reason, and if it is neglected, it is UMNO's fault even if it is an opposition party's area, Pahang is overwhelmingly a BN area. Pardon me for spoiling your weekend.

Abah said...

Dear Dato and Comrades,

During a special occasion involving JHEV and PBTM Negeri Melaka last month at AlQuwazmi astrological Center Tanjung Bidara. There is a lot of queries has being voices by the members. Brought back from Conggo Allowance case and to the lastest issues incl personel matters arise. The occasion dismissed nearly at 12 midnight.
During the midnight super I just approached Dato Zul JHEV President and suggest to him once the AKTA has being implemented and approved by Cabinet, please distributed the AKTA to all Veterans/ Ex Services members including published to JHEV Website and JHEV monthly Magazine@Buletin.
Of Course Dato Zul give me the thumb up to my suggestion. Finally I hope this AKTA will be approved by the Parliment during this coming session for the benefits of all member of X Services.

FMZam said...

To think that the Malays have no other countries except Peninsular Malaysia, not even Sabah and Sarawak will want to accept the Malays, and certainly not even Brunei, and if in any event that the Malays are forced out of Peninsular Malaysia, not even Indonesia Malays would want to accept us. We have nowhere else to go because we don't have a country of origin other than this country.

And to think that the Chinese and Indian citizen of this country and all other citizen of this country that are not Malays, can always go back to their country of origin in the similar event, is totally absurd as they are all our citizen like the Malays and they are all our very own people of this country. They face the same situation as much as the Malays.

To think that non-Malay citizen must live on unequal social contract forever will in fact create a social burden to us all, the Malays and the non-Malays alike, as and when the population grows in balance. And when this unequality is not resolved, the only way to get out of this situation is by mean of ethnic cleansing, like what happened in WW2 Germany, Africa and Bosnia, etc.

The recipe for ethnic cleansing is here in our country. The Malays are protected by Askar Melayu Diraja, The Armed Forces and the Police Force are Malay dominated well trained armed organizations and plus the para military organizations of this country. The non-Malays are virtually unarmed.

Come the moment when the Malays are in all desperation and that will be when UMNO is on the brink of collapse. Even now we can see some political persecution is taking place and the government is launching political oppression bit by bit as they deem necessary.

This government is the one that will never accept changes. They are preparing for the political catastrophe.

maurice said...

Dear Walimuar,

I can feel your frustation at what is happening to RAMD.I am afraid Dato Arshad wil not be able to do anything to arrest the slide affecting the RAMD leadership.Our yearning for RAMD to return to its past glories will not be easily met now or in the near future.

The RAMD officers and men are admired for their valour and bravery in battles from the beginning of their time at Pasir Panjang in WW2 until to the end of the Malaysian Emergency.Many RAMD officers and men were bestowed with the highest gallantry medal, the PGB (Pahlawan Gagah Berani).

The excellent history of the RAMD built upon past scarifices of its officers and men, sad to say have been marred by what Dato Arshad said 'the rotten fish head'.It seems the head has forgotten what a true military leader is all about, to earn and gain the respect of his officers and men through examplary conduct.It seems the peace dividend following the end of the Malaysian Emergency has eroded the true potential of the RAMD leadership.

maurice said...

Dear FMZam,

You can now be classified as an alarmist and a warmonger.

Ethnic cleansing will not happen in this country because our communities value peace over war.

We respect the Constitution, the Rulers, the laws of the country and culture of the various communities.These are the mechanisms that would ensure a peceful handover in the event UMNO loses political power.

komando said...

MAURICE,

FIRST AND FOREMOST IF YOU HAVE WALKED THE GROUND DURING YOUR YOUNGER DAYS IN THE SERVICE, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN MUCH MORE.

OR MAYBE YOU ARE NOT A FOOT SOLDIER, JUST PUSHING PEN AND PAPERS ONLY TYPE!

SORRY IF I INSULTED YOU..
THE THREE MAJOR RACES HAVE BEEN NEGLECTED..ALL NOT ONE ONLY

WITH HUNDRED'S OF BILLION OF PETROL DOLLARS BEEN EARNED OVER THE PAST DONKEY YEARS, WHY WAS THERE NO PRIORITY TO GET THE PEOPLE OUT OF THE POVERTY THEY ARE IN?

SIMPLE HOUSING FOR THE HARDCORE POOR..CAN IT NOT BE DONE?
WHY BR PROUD OF THE STUPID TWIN TOWERS WHEN YOUR CITIZENS ARE DYING OF THIRST AND HUNGER?

YOU GO WATCH TV3 - BERSAMA MU!
MY HEART BLEEDS AND MY EYES IS FULL OF TEARS TO SEE WHAT THEY ARE GOING THRU! IT IS STILL HAPPENING.

NOT TO MENTION SABAH AND SARAWAK

MALAYS/INDIANS AND SOME CHINESE LIVE LIKE STREET URCHINS.. THEY EAT SIPUT BABI, KANGKONG LONGKANG AND WATER.

YOU GO CHECK IN THE TV3 ARCHIVES I CAN GET YOU FREE TAPES IF NEED BE!

THEN COME AND TALK TO ME IN DATO ARSHAD's OFFICE!

UMNO & BN , ...IF THEY HAD CARED FOR THE MALAYS AND OTHERS THEY WONT BE IN THIS DIRE SITUATION!

BE REAL, WALK THE GROUND DON'T TALK BEHIND YOUR AIR-COND FIVE STAR OFFICE IN WHATEVER LAND YOU CAME FROM!

GET REAL MAURICE..!

IF FM-ZAM SAYS UMNO WILL PLAY DIRTY, I AM NOT LAUGHING, BUT YOUR THEORY THAT UMNO WILL HAND OVER IN A GOLDEN PLATTER IF THEY LOOSE... THAT I WOULD LAUGH...TILL MY BELLY BURSTS!

FMZam said...

Saudara maurice,

Stop being a hypocrite! Be honest to yourself, do you really want to live a lesser citizen of Malaysia at the cost of your future generations? I doubt very much if you are honest in expressing your views in this blog in support of what all sensible citizen are fighting against discrimination and intimidation.

I have been treating you with cautious all these while because you seems to me a cunning fox hiding behind your sheep's skin.

WaliMuar said...

Dear Maurice,

To me it is never too late to change the current rot in RAMD,what the present General could have done is go back to basic " an officer and gentlemen" mode i.e the current training,upbringing and knowledge to bring back the true RAMD in the Armed Forces.After all this is the only corp in the whole ATM with a motto of "TAAT SETIA" ,the rest only God knows.........

komando said...

Maurice...please behave don't misguide and mislead OTHERS.

"TAAT SETIA" this does not mean TOTALLY BLIND LOYALTY!

IF NEED BE WE CHANGE THE MOTTO.

"TAAT KEPADA YANG BENAR DAN DERHAKA KEPADA YANG PALSU!

SORRY RAMD OFFICERS AND MEN NO OFFENSE MEANT!

maurice said...

Dear Komando,

Facts are facts.No need to twist the facts by using isolated examples.

No educated person would deny the fact that that Malaysia has been transformed from an agriclutural to an industrialized country within a few decades after independence.

In the same period we have enjoyed a quantum jump in our quality of life: better health care, better educational facilities/opportunities, better infrastructural facilities, better standard of living, has emerged as a world class trading nation etc.How do you think these were achieved? Certainly it did not fall from the sky.

maurice said...

Sdr FMZam,

There you are, you have hit the nail on the head.I owe my loyalty to those who have given my family the chance/opportunity to free ourselves from the clutches of poverty and improve ourselves to be a middle class family within a generation.

Hopefully in future, my offsprings would do better than me in spinning the family wheel of progress and advancement.

As they say, it is better to work with the devils that you know than the angles that you don't.

maurice said...

Dear Walimuar,

I aggree with you.The loyalty of RAMD is beyond doubt.

The point is that the present situation should not have happened at all.

That it happened is considered the greatest betrayal of a leader towards his officers and men.

It is hard to see how future leadership of RAMD could soon regain the respect and confidence from other parts and components of the MAF/Army, for that matter the rakyat shoud the 'rotten fish head' allegation turns out to be true.

What facts are your facts maurice when facts and fallacies are separated by a thin line, and one's facts are another people's fallacies.

Development? What development when it left trails of destruction, and for that matter all educated people know there is always a price we have to pay for development - destruction! Because development and destruction are human made. What god develops and destructs are called nature. This world has seen so many great civilizations developed and destroyed since the earliest human civilization 5 or 6 thousand years ago.

If your fact is that this country owes to this government for development, then you must also state your fact that this government is responsible for the destruction part of it.

Yes you are right, we have developed within few decades but we also have developed into fear of how long more this country will be destroyed by the "developers".

We haven't developed into anything yet until we can make make our country can sustain for our future generation to breath, not to suffocate with the development that only we enjoy it!

FMZam said...

Ha..ha..ha..at last maurice you admitted it...now you know you are working for the DEVILS!!!

I still can take it as another slip of the tongueeeeeeee of maurice...

komando said...

Maurice I do not want to use the word, but my friend Field Marshall ZAM has..very despicable !

Devils are caught all the time and we got you!

So if a person bribes you its okay, and as long as they do evil you still say YES to them?

So, you gain and some others suffer, what kind of a MUSLIM are you..you called yourself MAURICE and tried to fool us !

As I have said many times get real, don't hide !

This type we call "TRAITORS" !

maurice said...

Dear FMZam and Komando,

I look at this blog to be the medium where rational and logical thinking people exchange ideas in our effort to expose corruption in Mindef and MAF.

I see that some people are fond of bashing and engage in mud-slinging without the slightest feeling of guilt and shame.Well that's all right as this is what cyber freedom is all about.

In a civilized society truth reigns supreme.People have given up their lives in search and defence of truth.Truth merits either praise/admiration or hate/condemnation. The truth matters.Denying and not wanting to accept the truth in our phenomenal national development is a sign of decay in rational and logical thinking.

FMZam said...

maurice,

Rational thinking is SUBJECTIVE, so is logical thinking and whatever other thinking. You talk development, I rationalise development, I didn't defy development did I? I see it from differenet perpective, you have problem with that?

Don't worry about decaying maurice, we are all decaying one way or another, who's not? You maybe a hell of developed person in Malaysia but inside you are decaying, you are rotting FROM INSIDE OUT! Know why? you do not know what to develop. You better start developing your INNER self , maurice.....that was what the Army had equipped us with, the inner strength.

WaliMuar said...

Dato,

Can we move on to other topics please least u be branded as "pengkhianat", a magical word being flown around the country by UMNO to create animosity of the raayat against an individual politician who was their peers once upon a time or in othe word their 2nd man in their own party heirarchy.Apa dah jadi dengan UMNO ni............behaving like mad cow with mad cow disease symptom.

FMZam said...

Ehem WaliMuar....guess Dato' can go on moving to other topic but they all end up the same, we all get swaying and diverting to other topic without waiting. Just pen in whatever your topic, that is good enough to make us tag along the thread.

Go on bro, don't wait for Dato, he's too busy with maybe another wedding or meeting old friends rather than manning his blog.

komando said...

Maurice,

I beg your pardon...you never did Like the truth, because it hurts and it does very much to some one who try and defend something he knows is wrong!

You have a heart and brain do not let it rot as FM ZAM has said plain and simple!

If you were on the other side of the fence, I AM SURE YOU WILL FEEL EVEN WORST THAN THEY ARE FEELING NOW.

BEING DEPRIVED OF ONE's RIGHT BECAUSE THE SYSTEM AND ITS LEADERS WANT IT THAT WAY!

HOW LONG MORE ARE WE GOING TO STAY UN-UNITED AS A NATION WITH FLOPPY POLICIES AND STUPID IDEAS.

IT IS 52 YEARS THIS YEAR ! HOW MANY MORE YEARS DO WE HAVE TO WAIT?

WHEN WE ARE TRULY TREATED ALL THE SAME IN MATERIAL OF SKIN COLOR AND BELIEVES?

LOOK WHAT HAPPENS TO KELANTAN & TERENGGANU! THE RAKYAT IS PUNISH FOR CHOOSING THE OPPOSITION, DO YOU CALL THAT FAIR PLAY AND DEMOCRACY?

IT IS CALL "DEMO CRAZY" !
IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE KELANTANESE DIALECT IT MEANS - "THEY ARE MAD" AS SAID BY WALI MUAR..."MAD COWS ARE RULING THIS PIECE OF LAND OF OURS"!

HOPE YOU DON'T FEEL DEPRESSED AND OFFENDED AGAIN!

TAKE A WALK AND SEARCH YOUR HEART!

THIS LAND BELONGS TO ALL OF US, WE MUST FIGHT TO DEFEND OUR RIGHTS, IT IS A FUNDAMENTAL VALUE OF HUMANS, UNLESS ONE IS A ZOMBIE!

PERAK HAS GOT LOTS OF THEM!

maurice said...

Komando,

No, this land belongs to the Malays.This ia a Malay land.Please do not distort history for your own personal agenda.

The Malays must defend its political rights.The RAMD has been created to protect the Malay rights.The RAMD must remain strong as a fighting force.

Pucuk kepimpinan RAMD harus insaf terhadap tanggungjawab yang dipikul olih mereka terhadap bangsa, agama, negara dan Raja-Raja Tanah Melayu.

maurice said...

Dear FMZam,

What different perspectives?

National development causes environmental destruction?
National developmnent causing morale decay?National development further divides the society?National development enriching the elite and making the majority poorer.No, sorry I do not understand your perspective.

FMZam said...

Dear maurice,

I am glad you used the word National Development. In our country the word national development doesn't exist, what we have is 'pembangunan masyarakat' and 'pembangunan wanita' and 'pembangunan luar bandar', all those three have specific ministery. Have we got Ministry of National Development? Have we got National Development strategies? So other than those three "pembangunan" all other development are put under any minister's tom, dick and harry discretion. There is one country I know of with its specific ministry called Ministry of National Development and that country has been developing into some distinctive land where its rivers flow with blue water and yellow like all our rivers.

For us because in Bahasa, national development is 'pembangunan kebangsaan' so we give it a lesser priority to mean only for those three. The rest are unstrategized development on the descretion of any bright spark ministers whoever can get it passed by the cabinet and can get it passed without cabinet's approval.

Now since you mentioned National Development, tell me what are that you, or for that matter your friends in the government or for that matter your friend the PM of Malaysia, categorised as National Development?

National development? My foot!

FMZam said...

CORRECTION!
....where its rivers flow with blue water NOT yellow like all our rivers.

ommo said...

Salam Dato' Reading most of the comments shows the faults lies at the crux of the matter, i.e. We are not good enough to select good leaders so the mediocre or the corrupted ones are selected and bad leaders think for themselves before others or none at all if that can be achieved.
Our TV programs are tailored on racial lines or slanted to cater for the ruling group to make matters worse. The ruling group give us the impression that the opposition are the enemy of the state; just like you mentioned about calling the other guy a traitor.The Malays may feel the opposition are the enemies because of this, but the ruling group are using this feeling for their political mileage . The last 15 years what has the ruling group done to foster better racial integration. The point here is not to love one another but to understand that we all are created equally different by God Almighty and to recognize this and know each other with tolerance. There must be a give and take attitude. The Malays like to hold to the power that’s understandable but the Malays must be fair and rule efficiently with compassion. We are responsible to God Almighty in the end. When we are not efficient the small mistakes or hurts gets becoming bigger n bigger. A generalized example: The Malays hold on to power, whilst the Chinese to their business power, then what happen to the Indians, they lost out; MIC can be faulted but it's everyone's fault when our neighbour does not get enough food to feed their children.
The TV stations must improve and not be politically slanted in their coverage (Too many secrets I suppose).
However in spite of all the weaknesses Malaysians are still caring, maybe because we are in the comfort zone and this can be dangerous if some major faults are not rectified like transparency in the National media, getting corruption reduced drastically on all groups not only ringgit or cents but on the mental or spiritual level i.e. being responsible for one cardinal errors especially the Ministers. When are in power i.e. Malays (including Bumiputras) and Chinese in their various sectors we should be more caring and magnanimous at the same time diligent efficient in our decision making efforts. Correction efforts must be carried out consistently either drastically step by step.
When leaders does not want to change then we must change. The sacred word is Insaf i.e Repent. That’s my 2 bits contribution. Salam

komando said...

MAURICE IF THIS LAND BELONGS ONLY TO THE MALAYS THEN I SAY THIS TO YOU...U ARE A EGO CENTRIC MALAY!

ISLAM TEACHES US A LOT OF HUMANE VALUES, THE NON MALAYS ARE HUMANS TREAT THEM FAIRLY AND INSYA ALLAH THEY WILL SEE THE LIGHT AND BECOME MUSLIMS.

NOW THE UMNO MALAYS TREAT OTHERS LIKE DOGS DO YOU EXPECT TO GAIN ANY RESPECT...THAT GIVES ISLAM A BAD NAME(THE MALAYS IN UMNO)

THE OTHER MUSLIMS WHO BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURE KNOWS WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG.

AS I HAVE SAID, THE HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMED saw HAS GIVEN HIS SOLUTION, ALSO IN THE HOLY QURAN ITSELF.

IN DISPUTE TURN TO BOTH, THE SOLUTION IS GOD SENT, NOT MAN MADE LIKE UMNO "DOES IT THEIR WAY"!

UMNO BELITTLES THE QURAN, MENGHINA NABI TO BE EXACT..THE GREAT TUN MAMAK OF YOURS DID IT!

WHY NO ONE HUMAN IN UMNO DARE CORRECT HIM, YOU GUYS THINK HE IS GOD, THAT'S WHY HE BEHAVES STILL LIKE GOD!

SO YOU STILL SAY YOU ARE RIGHT AND RAMD IS THE SAVIOR!

PLEASE LAH REMEMBER I SAID. IF ALLAH swt DECIDES AND SAYS: "KUN FAYAH KUN"

UMNO WILL DISAPPEAR! AND YOU INCLUDED MAURICE BERTAUBAT DAN INSAF LAH DIRI.

JANGAN MALUKAN DIRI LAGI CUKUP LAH SAYA NAK BERSYARAH KAT ANDA....!

maurice said...

Sdr FMZam and Komando,

We give credit where one deserves it.There is no question Malaysia has achieved phenomenal economic growth in the last few decades.

Our national development may not be perfect but we are not where we are in the absence of it.

Some sectors like the provision of infrastructures are far ahead whilst some sectors especially pertaining to society need a lot of catching up to do.

Things like honesty and integrity, cleanliness and ordileness, respect for the environment, hardworking and industriousness, caring for the needy, elders and the handicapped, caring for the animals,discharging public responsibility etc need to be improved.

If we really care for the future of this country, we need to go forward on all these issues.Preaching will not do any body any good without effective contribution and participation.

maurice said...

Dear Komando,

I am sorry to say you are nothing but an a false preacher whose determination of values and norms of behaviour run counter to the principles of liberal,civil and democratic society.

ommo said...

Salam, I agree with Kommando's comments even though it sound harsh. Can you imagine what would happen if Bn succeeded to take back Selangor by any means that they think is right. Just how much arrogant would be portrayed, why can't they wait for 4 more years and are the PR Government so bad. From what I see they have some teething problems that can be sought out in time. The past mistakes and corruption of the previous government are still not taken action on. When there is no repentance then the Barakah becomes less.
[If Allah were to punish men according to what they deserve, He would not leave on the surface of the earth one single living creature: but He gives them respite for a stated term.] (Fatir 35:45)

[O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Do not despair of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Turn to your Lord (in repentance) and bow to His Will, before the Penalty comes upon you: after that you shall not be helped.] (Az-Zumar 39:53–54)

[Allah accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards; to them Allah will turn in mercy: for Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom. Of no avail is the repentance of those who continue to do evil, until death faces one of them, and he says, “Now have I repented indeed” nor of those who die rejecting Faith: for them We have prepared a painful chastisement.] (An-Nisaa’ 4:17 –18)

The above verse are from the AL Quran al Karim.
So my concern is the word "Barakah" i.e. blessing from Allah SWT when this cease then there looms in the horizon.... you tell me.

maurice said...

Dear Ommo,

You are trying to hide the fact that the real problem within members of PKR is an ideological one.

The ideological discords between PAS and DAP I am sorry to say is not a teething one.

You tell me....how to reconcile the opposing ideologies between the two parties.

komando said...

Maurice,
YOU MENTIONED ABOUT liberal,civil and democracy!

I love all nice things you said, but do you think we have it in this country..the amount of corruption, blunders, lies and deceit we have had for the past 52years.

You must be now in DREAM LAND, NO MORE BODOH-LAND OR BOLEH-LAND!

FMZam said...

Beside maurice who like to say give credit where one deserves it, is Dato' Arshad. I find it bizzare that you and whoever like to use that credit can say it as if credit is your prerogative to give and you give credit only to those who pleases you. Who do you think you are, credit card company?

Stop behaving you are a giver of credit as if we are hard up for credit in writing in blog. Better save the credit for yourselves because you need it more to go to your masters with you tail wagging for a pat on your head and hear him say "good dog!".

And you go on saying to care for the future of the country. What are you to say that? A Futurist? And you brand all those who went against your thinking as alarmist, warmonger, false preacher, fact hider and whatever. Just like UMNO brands the opposition as TRAITORS!

It is not so much that UMNO wants to care for the future of this country when what they meant was their future, their kind of future and all for the party's survival. And all others who are not UMNO are future destroyers of this country, including MCA, MIC and all their own allies.

If you want to talk about the future of this country, let me paint it to you this way...The future of this country under UMNO, is now, 52 years ago.

And 52 years ago is 5 generations and we have been living with UMNO as well as with the traitors of UMNO, to know who and what UMNO really is.

So your mentality on credit is just like any credit credit card company's. You give credit and we repay it with support for you. UMNO get richer and the people are made to service the credit for lifelong.

The dangerous thought is not by letting this country is ruled by a PM of Chinese, Indian and any non-Malay race. The dangerous thought is not letting this country be ruled by any able Malaysian Prime Minister.

komando said...

Credit card company what a way to go!

Well done FM ZAM loved it!

I will give you the credit!
Come and have lunch with me in PAK CHAD'S office!

Anytime, we can include MAURICE too, at least we can give him some credit for showing up!

maurice said...

Dear Dato and Readers,

I see nothing but negative thinking which lead us to nowhere.

This blog seems to be an avenue for people to express their frustation and vent their anger against the government.

We should be constructive in our criticisms to improve conditons in the MAF ie better weapon systems, more savy personnel, better quality of life for families etc.

It become dangerous when you start having negative and destructive thoughts.I sincerely hope your blog will achieve its original aim of combating corruption.

FMZam said...

Aah maurice, here we go again, how many time more I must confront you because of your silly posting? I do not like to keep bashing you but you keep asking me to keep bashing the government by bashing you! See?

That's why the government pay you to write on its behalf here so why are you complaining about getting bashed. If you are not ready to get into the heat then withdraw.

When I made complaint to Dato' Arshad to focus on fighting corruption in MAF, you were the one who suggest otherwise and supporting him like a ball licker. Now why are falling back to my point? See?

And bloody hell you maurice, don't tell me you are a weak soldier who cannot take criticism to be constructive. If I am so destructive in my criticism I better be the first to be banned by Dato' Arshad.

Come on maurice, I am nothing, I am nobody and I am powerless. You are far better than me. How can I be so destructive?

All I have is I have nothing to lose to bash this government, like many others who have nothing to lose to join so many government bashing blogs all over this country, that's all.

komando said...

Maurice, don't give up stay up and be counted and forever be a LOSER!

Get your ammo belt and slug it out.
WE wont let you go off that easy...used brains or nothing left?

We shall see, another elections coming !
Aha what is your take?
FMZAM and me are not ever going to lie down and be trampled by guys like you..

not trained that way...!

loreng said...

Sdr Maurice,

Saya harap anda terus memberi sumbangan kpd blog ini.Saya lihat anda mampu memaparkan komen-komen yang konstruktif bagi renungan pembaca-pembaca.

Kita perlu mempertahankan perjuangan kaum Melayu dan keuntuhan RAMD.

TAAT SETIA

FMZam said...

Negara ini negara majmuk, bukan hanya untuk orang Melayu, UMNO pun cakap macam tu, cuma orang-orang Melayu yang yang ekstrim dan ultra saja cakap ni negara Melayu. Negara ini untuk semua rakayat tak kira bangsa. Semua PM Malaysia cakap macam tu, tak ada satu PM Malaysia yang berani cakap sebaliknya. Kalau kita orang Melayu hanya mahu perjuangkan bangsa kita, maka rakyat bangsa lain juga akan bangkit memperjuangkan bangsa mereka. Bila semua bangsa bangun mahu memperjuangkan bangsa masing-masing, maka negara kita akan jadi medan perjuangan antara warganegara sendiri.

Kalau hanya satu bangsa saja kuat, negara kita tak akan jadi kuat. Kalau hanya bangsa Melayu saja yang diperjuangkan, rakyat bangsa lain akan tertekan dan akan bangun menentang untuk mengkuatkan bangsa masing-masing supaya dapat mempertahankan diri dari ditindas kerana menjadi bangsa yang lemah.

Kalau hanya bangsa Melayu dan RAMD saja yang utuh, negara kita dan angkatan tentera kita tak akan jadi utuh. Ironinya yang melaungkan perjuangan bangsa Melayu dan yang nak menghancurkan bangsa Melayu adalah bangsa Melayu juga. Dan yang melemahkan keutuhan RAMD ialah general-general RAMD jugak.

Maaf lah kalau komen saya ini destruktif atau tidak konstruktif kerana saya sudah keluar dari dalam tempurung bangsa Melayu.

loreng said...

GENERAL-GENERAL RAMD (YANG SEDANG BERKHIDMAT/BERSARA) SILA AMBIL PERHATIAN:


Nampaknya sudah ada orang yang berani menuduh bahwa ada General General RAMD yang "melemahkan keutuhan RAMD."

Tuduhan ini perlu disangkal sekiranya ingin mengekalkan kepercayaan dan keyakinan rakyat kepada Pasukan RAMD.

komando said...

Para General RAMD saya harap semua berfikiran terbuka..jangan jadi BARUAH kepada kerajaan ZALIM !

LORENG - adalah jenis yang berfikiran sempit sekali,,,kesian bangsa malayu yang ikut dia!

maurice said...

Dear Koamando,

Loreng is merely pointing to the allegation which appears black and white here.

Let the GENERALS in the RAMD make their own decision.Their reputation both past and present is at stake by the slanderous accusation.

If nothing is being done they would become the laughing stock in town.

FMZam said...

My dear maurice,

From another angle, Komando saw it how loreng was conspiciously smart to capture only the portion where I made remarks on "general-general RAMD" and use it to "ignite" reactions especially from the generals themselves. Loreng had purposely obscured my main text of the discussion, I do not know if he is honest in using that portion only to incite retribution on me. But Loreng forgot one thing, that he didn't realise I was not the first to say that when WaliMuar had mentioned his dissatisfaction to that same effect about RAMD generals in his posting far above this same subject.

It doesn't matter to me whatever was Loreng's dubious or honest intention because by his act, god has blessed us all with a stroke of luck that Loreng was in fact so brave to be a catalyst to make the generals react faster than any of us could have done it.

Let me thank Loreng for serving our purpose with his blistering speed and we shall wait if that can be a wake up call to anyone general.
