Sulu Standoff: Najib Owes The Country An Explanation

The beleaguered and bungling Najib administration owes the nation an explanation for the Sulu standoff that, to all purpose, is still standing - if not actually heading to a worse situation in the future.

Najib and the government he leads, need to explain how a group of armed foreigners could so easily breach our security and ensconce themselves in Lahat Datu.

We know that Altantuya is dead, but weren't the French scorpions supposed to keep our waters safe with their canggih (sophisticated) noses. Or are they just expensive toyboys?

Najib needs to come clean as to why the armed foreigners were not seen as a security threat in the first place and were in fact treated with kid gloves until the pressure from the opposition and concerned Malaysians, probably forced Najib and Co to wake up a little from their CNY and Psy induced reverie.

We want to know why our security forces were, and still seem, unable to stand up properly to a small bunch of armed men?

Or was there a hidden agenda to allow the standoff to drag on for some political end that only certain parties knew about?

Or is the Najib administration not telling us the truth - that, in fact, there is a larger group of these armed men out there?

And that they are well armed and dangerous, not what the home minister wanted us to believe?    

Until Najib gives an honest and truthful explanation for the Sulu standoff snafu, you can't stop Malaysians from speculating  .

With an administration that would not allow newshounds to sniff out the rabbits, we really can't expect Najib & Co to tell the unvarnished truth, can we?

But look where our bungling, lovey lovey handling of the Sulu standoff has led us.

We have already lost Pedra Branca to Singapore.

If we are no careful, we may even lose Putrajaya to foreigners too.

And to think that Najib is so afraid of losing Putrajaya to the opposition, that he had even wowed to defend it against the latter even if that had to involve crushed bones and dead bodies!

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...
