We Never Learn from Our Past

Malaysia never learns from painful experience.  That is what I felt when I read the news that Special Branch had arrested 7 FTF (foreign terrorist fighters) working as security guards in Kuala Lumpur for the last 2 years.

Note that these 7 are different from the 9 arrested between 1 July to 30 August, for plans to distrupt the National Day celebration and SEA Games.

Photo Tells a Thousand Words

There's a saying that a photo tells a thousand words. But people tend to forget, that the thousand words tend to be distorted by the people who tell the narrative. And along the way, the message is lost.

Digarhayu Malaysia Merdeka - Bahagian 2

Daripada bahagian pertama...

Ancaman terhadap kedaulatan negara bukan semata-mata daripada fahaman komunis.  Negara turut diancam negara jiran serantau.

Dirgahayu Malaysia Merdeka - Bahagian 1

Di kala jiran tetangga kita menyambut hari kebangsaan masing-masing, saya ambil peluang ini untuk melihat kembali negara kita sendiri.

Adakah kita sudah melangkah jauh ke hadapan? Atau kita sekadar jaguh kampung yang bagai si ibu ayam, bertelur sebiji riuh sekampung?
