Sabah Sulu Problem: Not So Lovey-Dovey?

Thinking Malaysians never believed for a blink that the Sulu problem in the land below the wind is as simple as what the Najib administration is wanting to flog to us i.e that it is all Anwar's call

We are long used to the administration's pokai (bankrupt) penchant of shifting all the nation's ills onto Anwar's shoulders.

In fact, this pokai penchant is the laughable legacy of the man who seems to always be looking over his shoulder for Anwar's bayang (shadow)

Now, were these pokai guys a little less eager and a lot more savvy, we might perhaps have had been a little more enamoured.

As it is, even a three year young kid would have to be bribed with more than a Oreo to even start listening.

Politics is always the other guy's play, never yours.

So, okay, for just a moment, let's say that you don't play politics.

After all, you are the government and the government is supposed to take care of the nation's security and welfare.

And do it well.

But is it up to the task?  Does it know what it is doing?

Or is it being fooled by a bunch of armed but apparently quite harmless and non terrorist group of foreigners (some or many with Malaysian ICs?)

Now, that bunch is more like a hydra?

Or so it seems.

So, what are you going to do?

Another three weeks of surrender datelines that are less dates than lines or lies?

  1. It's a little scary thinking that these things are still happening in modern times.

    1. You are right. We really don't know what is actually happening on the ground. But if some reports are to be believed, we may not see the end to the situation. The Suluks (used as a general term covering the tribes) are not known for being softies. Many of them have years of experience fighting the Philippine armed forces who, despite US help, had difficulty putting them down, if you recall the days of MNLF & Co. It does appear that the Suluks may want to press their claim to The Land Below The Wind. One report had it that about 10,000 of them may be heading their way here. The situation on the ground appears to be very fluid; nobody really knows what to do. Many Malaysians do believe that the Najib administration and the administrations before, have had, unfortunately, in one way or another, contributed to what is happening today. Now, it remains to be seen if they are up to the task in confronting what now appears to be a situation beyond anybody's expectation although it must be said that the authorities should have had seen it coming.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
