Strauss-Kahn is a famous or infamous man depending on where your sympathy lies.
If your sympathy is French, then at least think of Peugeot, not politics, connections or power.
I don't know how true this is, but if the worst turns out to be so, will Malaysians be surprised?
You have to ask Ali, Ah Chong or Muthu.
I don't know.
One hundred armed men dug in in Lahad Datu, Sabah a week ago and all that we could do is hole them in with no idea as to how to slew the Sulu stand-off. (The latest news is that they are to be repatriated. It remains to be seen how this will work out or whether the armed men will indeed agree to leave peacefully and what the authorities intend or can do if they don't)
I understand one armed man is a dangerous phenomenon.
One hundred armed men can defeat a standing army if you are not careful, especially for one that also boasts of a sophisticated navy with two expensive scorpion subs that seem to have lost their sting haunted by the ghost of a Mongolian beauty.
But it is truly stretching the imagination a little too far to be scared stiff by an unarmed man with a smart phone name, Xenophon
I agree Xenophon, smart or not, is a security threat. But I can't agree that he is a threat to the country's security.
He is a threat to Umno's long hegemony of Malaysian politics and government.
And that can really scare the shit out of anyone, no?
