Semalam I was watching the History channel Al Maunah - malaysian arms heist. Did you catch it? What did you think? I caught it halfway and they were interviewing the general and then the cops and then the actual prisoner.
What got me was that the komando 69, the police force, were sent halfway in when it became clear that the army was getting no where , basically. Then this guy, Razak (who was kind of cute) managed to approach the Al Maunah people in a friendly way and then got them to kind of surrender. And just as he was in the middle of getting them to completely surrender their weapons (which they were anyway doing) the army , without ANY consultation with the police whatsoever, came charging on with their huge tanks and then scared everyone . Then the general Zaini, charged on and in a hostile fashion started to put everyone on the defensive. I mean the leader of Al maunah got so mad he pointed his gun to the general . the entire family at this point was shouting to the TV- SHOOT HIM ! SHOOT HIM ALLREADY! we were that fed up with how the army was stealing the thunder from the cops. I think the police komando 69 ni sponsor show ni kot cause they certainly looked good!
Anyway I think, there are worse people than them who should be put away for GOOD and executed without trial. I think better lah sikit (SIKIT) to be Al maunah who fought for their principles (in a totally misguided way) rather than total psycho who kill neighbour and daughter or who slaughter, burn and torture 4 human beings at one go!
And in the first place-- how on earth did you manage to "lose" that many weapons, Malaysian Army??
Sigh..we are such a happy, carefree nation kan??
