| IGP, what exactly are you doing in Lahad Datu?
| Thursday, February 21, 2013
Do you notice the Top Cops, they are fat!! Does that instill confidence in you that they are capable of handling the armed terrorists? They are observing the terrorists via binoculars on our land? That takes the cake!! I guess they are trying to impress the public that they are on the ball. As usual they think we are fools. The Police should not be involved, as it is not an internal security situation, so far they seem to be completely inept in evicting the invaders..
Politicians have interfered that is why the standoff is ongoing. The Police are not trained to launch attacks on enemy locations, where the enemy fires back. It is not a Bersih rally. They do not have Mortars, Artillery, Infantry Fighting Vehicles or Special Forces skilled in Reconnaissance, Air Force and Navy. It should be the job of the Military as it is an external threat, they are equipped and trained for this. This should be handled by the 5th Brigade Commander without sparing all the niceties. This is the Defense Minister's baby, apparently he is AWOL and the Military is being humiliated by a rag tag bunch of terrorists. There was another clown, so called Admiral, had the cheek to say our
defence spending is so good (with useless submarines) that a 1511 invasion will not happen again.
Yeah right, we have been invaded this time not by Portuguese galleons but Filipino sampans. So what say you about your mighty submarines? - edit
We know what we're doing in Lahad Datu, says IGP
latest episode demonstrates the regime is incapable of safeguarding our
nation's territorial integrity. Our rulers are unable to protect
citizens not only from street crime but also from banditry. The
armed intruders who forced their way into Sabah occupied a village
causing the villagers to flee for their lives. The safety and livelihood
of these people were disrupted. That idiot of a home minister has the cheek to declare the invaders "were neither militants nor terrorists." Armed
invaders entering the country illegally and defying the authority of
the state are not considered militants, but peaceful protesters taking
part in Bersih rallies are deemed a threat to security and public order. How
twisted this regime is - good is evil and evil is good. Malaysians need
to put this regime out of its misery in GE13 otherwise no one is safe
in our country.
(inspector-general of police) Ismail (Omar) urged the public not to be
influenced by online reports on the standoff, which are being spread
through social media networks." The IGP gives a press conference
but he is telling us nothing except not to worry because "we know what
we are doing". At a time when the PDRM (Royal Malaysian Police) has lost
much of its credibility, those words are indeed very comforting.
Anonymous #44199885: "We know what we are doing" - amazing wisdom from the police chief. How
is it that the police were swift in their thousands to defend with
force the small patch of land known as Dataran Merdeka against Bersih,
which was a peaceful movement of unarmed and friendly Malaysians (who
are lawful citizens and owners of this country) but seem to be taking
its time in dealing with armed intruders who have invaded our country
and threatened our sovereignty?
Armageddon: So nice to people armed with guns but so eager to act aggressively on Malaysian carrying mineral water bottles and salt.
Oscar Kilo: You say "we know what we are doing", but we don't know what exactly you are doing. You expect us to read your mind?
Starr: The IGP says "we know what we are doing", but did the police know they were coming in with arms and assault weapons? It's
pathetic to say that when these armed men have clearly breached our
borders without being detected by the police. How does the IGP expect
the people to have confidence in his force, honestly?
Low Kok Kok:
Men armed with weapons entering Malaysia, whether they are militants
from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), Abu Sayyaf, Al Qaeda, or
armed forces from the United States, Philippines, China or North Korea,
should be treated as "enemies of the state". If Australian
senator Nick Xenophon can be classified as an enemy of the state, why
then these Sulu invaders are treated like honoured guests to Malaysia?
Our police can shoot unarmed teenagers and women without much aplomb
but does appear to show more trigger-discipline against armed foreign
Opah: Where has this group of
invaders been getting their supplies from? Surely they could not have
come into Malaysia complete with food and drink for 11 days. Has our tax
money been used to feed them?
Yes, give them MyKads and make them citizens. At the same time, get them
on the electoral rolls so that they can vote for Umno in GE13. I
am sure they would not mind. The IGP is pathetic. All along they told
us that there was only 100 of them. And then the Sulu sultan tells us
there are 400 of them with only 20 armed.
LJC: The situation is under control, but under whose control?
Ending the Lahad Datu stand-off
Nicholas Lim: The
so-called Sulu sultanate has no legitimate claim over Sabah. I believe
under the United Nations Charter the right to self-determination trumps
any historical claims and this right was already exercised by Sabah in
1963 with the referendum to form Malaysia. The alleged rental
Malaysia is paying to the supposed heirs of the Sulu sultanate is
nothing more than compensation, ie ‘wang pampasan'. They are not the
owners of Sabah. For them to claim Sabah itself is disingenuous
as their historical claim only covers parts of eastern Sabah. Further,
the Sulu sultanate itself is not officially recognised by the
Philippines or any international bodies. This sultan wasn't even
included in the peace negotiations between the Philippines government
and the MILF, and he wants to claim sovereignty over the whole of Sabah?
This claim is a joke and should be treated as such.
I think the Sulu sultan couldn't care less whether it is the
Philippines or Malaysia, so long as he become the sultan and enjoy the
perks in perpetuity.If the Philippines government recognises the sultan, I am sure he will side with the Philippines, religion and race aside.
The question that needs to be answered now is why is Umno taking such a
long time to resolve this issue? There is either a strong armed
presence or Umno is too incompetent to resolve this. Either way,
Umno comes out the losers as this would not have happened if they had
stop siphoning public funds meant for our country's defence. Obviously we don't need the Scorpene submarines, we need honest
politicians who know how to do their job and defend our country.
