How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Sabah intruders: whose responsibility is it?

                                           Pic courtesy of Facebook

That our Minister of Defence failed is obvious because a large group of armed foreigners could land on our shores so easily. Where are the expensive equipment purchased when we need them? Where are the butt-shaking veterans when we need them? The Minister of Defence has been accused of AWOL since this unfortunate intrusion.

That our Home Minister failed is also obvious because he said 'they came in sarongs and slippers and appeared under-nourished' but the picture above does not fit that description, and they are still around. Where are the water canons and tear-gas happy police when we need them? Where are the trigger-happy policemen? They are only good for fellow unarmed Malaysians?

With the continuing stand-off, it is now up to our Foreign Minister to use international diplomacy? His brother happens to be the Chief Minister of Sabah. Is he too busy counting all his money?

Can we blame our Tourism Minister for inviting foreigners to Malaysia? Psy was paid millions to perform for minutes and refused to stay and listen to instructions. Now we have a large group who refused to leave! Perhaps, we can make use of Air Asia to do national service by providing free transport for them to go back. Meanwhile, we can ask KFC and McDonald to provide them with food and drinks. Mydin in Meru, Ipoh has huge unsold stock of food and drinks too. Why not have a Ministerial Chinese New Year open house near our 'welcome, but stay where you are' intruders? Normally such open houses are overflowing with food and drinks, enough even for people to 'tah pau' or 'take away' with them.

Last, but not least, our PM's silence is deafening, more so than when he is beating a Chinese drum. He is still undecided over when to hold the next General Election. Now he has a good reason: who is going to deal with this group of invaders when Parliament is dissolved? Our ex-PMs were used to using public facilities to campaign for BN even when Parliament was dissolved, but when it comes to such highly sensitive international matters, surely our country cannot be without a legitimate PM to make decisions! But then again, even with the powers, he is undecided. I dread to think what would happen if and when there is an actual offensive by aggressive intruders.
