A press statement endorsed by Malaysians of all walks of life.
Gift or nightmare for Najib?
The ongoing Sabah crisis could turn out to be the gift Prime Minister Najib Razak was hoping for to help his Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition to victory at the impending general election, which he has yet to call, or a ticking bomb instead.
In rejecting the ceasefire proposed by the Sulu Sultan whose followers landed in Lahad Datu more than three weeks ago to reclaim Sabah as their ancestral homeland, Najib has scored much-needed positive points. Already, even his detractors have expressed support for his stand. They now declare that for once, he is saying something “sensible”, that they are agreeing with him “for the first time”.

Some, however, are saying this is “the only right thing” he has done during the whole crisis. Nonetheless, if he manages to pull off a decisive victory over the intruders, votes, especially from fence-sitters, might actually drop to BN.
But Najib has to do it before the general election has to be held, the absolute last date for which is June 28. If the crisis is not resolved before the general election, his ineffectiveness as prime minister would be exposed. He needs to win the conflict decisively, like Margaret Thatcher won the Falklands War in 1982 and went on to resuscitate her flagging popularity at the UK general election the following year.
On that score, if there was indeed a conspiracy to stage the Sabah crisis as a gamble on the part of either BN or the Opposition, Pakatan Rakyat, it would seem to have favoured BN more than it would have Pakatan. There’s nothing like a war – or, in this case, armed conflict – to unite the people behind the Government against the common enemy. And victory would bring it even greater rewards.
Project IC a master piece of work by Dr. M. really bring dilemma to Sabahans and also jeopardize Sabah security to the terrorists! What an idiot idea of simply letting foreigners from area that has been infested with freedom fighters!
Besides the above project this Dr. M also opened door to Irans and countries from Africa.....at the end a lot of drugs smugglers from these countries smuggled drugs into Malaysia.....this is another idiot's idea that almost causing great harm to the nation and citizens!
So in here I just wondering how much harm this Dr. M had done to Malaysia?Countless or a few?
Nightmare for my dearest Dr M.
Why 200,000 ICs for Sulu ? They made great contribution to this country ? Singapore gives citizenships to talented people, we give citizenships to Sulu. Great.
I am just a silly Malaysian, I want to know why.
Bolehkah saya tau mengapa ?
One more fact, if the current goverment have been "doing" their job, this kind of situation wouldn't happen at all.
We made ourselves a laughing stock of the whole world !
Have been giving away 200,000 ICs to illegal immigrants (Sulu).
We dont even know how many of them are holding guns in our backyard.
Prevention is better than cure...
Repeated events are happening in Sabah since first Merdeka Day, where is the Sabah Chief Minister? who is the Commander? what lessons have we leant?
neither Najib's gift nor nightmare.
Cause & Effect ! people started thinking who was the one give away so many ICs to the people (Sulu) we are not familiar with....total strangers...Pathetic
Congratz Najib, you just made a right decision (as of now) after so long. But better late than never
Next is to walk the talk, and show the public you meant what you say. May I suggest that you should seek advice on this war from veteran generals rather than your indecisive cousin or those inept commading officers who wish only to score points/fame.
After the situation is settle, we would wish you would investigate how the invaders are able to breach our defense that easily and get those officers like you mean business. But due to cases where you blatantly ignoring the wish of the public or go after top guns in your party, this will be difficult to achieve
However sincere kudos to you this time (for your firm stance on asking to "laydown arms or die" part only)
najib for once you make a right decision and we want to see more of this.
we are not here just to critisize you, it's constructive criticism. take it positively.
we wait to see your next cause of action.
We (Malaysian) were naturally friendly. Malay don't suspect brotherhood (especially having the same religion-Islam).
Who knows one day our policemen were mutilated by Sulu. Really out of our expectation ! Trust No One. They are SAVAGES !
More closer we're to the election too many things poping up. The questions is, Are this things made up for victory or to divert the attention of public by creating fearness?.
We hope today's public is aware and able to understand the happenings.
However go and see Singapore- Malaysia border...tell a opposite story right?...
My opinion is that it is all about "being too flexible and suffer later" OR "stick to rules strictly and incur the complaint from rakyat"
Do you think recent attacks and kidnappings in Sabah are affecting the tourism industry?
