Finally Malaysian soldiers and police (special tactical unit) got a chance to use their heavy assault weapons. In my lifetime so far, I don’t remember any event that required the use of the army heavy assault weapons.
The intrusion of Sulu gunmen in Sabah made everyone to reflect and ponder on the issue of patriotism.
So, do you feel patriotic and want to crush the Sulu gunmen ? Today there’s a forum on the radio where many listeners gave their views and opinions on how patriotic we Malaysians are. Apparently, it was reported in papers that those in national service were given a 50-minute video clip /movie show to instil patriotism in them.
Geez. So you think the video will work ?
Patriotism cannot be instilled by just watching a video clip.
What sort of patriotism do you think you would achieve when the house you bought is 7% dearer than the macharn next door?
What sort of patriotism do you think you would achieve when some of your kin or friends with straight As lose out to those with Grade 2/3 in public university entrance due to quota system.
Just ponder on this 2 issues and you’ll find the truth put there. Patriotic my S.
So the wish list for this coming GE13 general election:
Since there won’t be a single medium school, why don’t they revert mission schools back to English medium just like the time of my grandfather. Let the rakyat have a choice whether to send their kids to Malay, Chinese , Tamil or English medium school.
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina)
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Tamil)
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (English)
Now that looks more like it.
