As has always been the case, when we send our policemen and soldiers into battle and are killed or injured, the chances are they are Melayus and Bumiputeras. Perhaps there is wisdom in getting more Chinese and Indians to join the armed forces so that they too can die for one Malaysia.

Today, The Sunday Star newspaper published a report quoting a leading Manila daily, Philippines Daily Inquirer, as saying that Filipino intelligence sources had linked a Sabah politician, who is allied to a Malaysian opposition leader, as among “external factors” responsible for instigating heirs to the Sulu Sultanate to claim Sabah.
The Inquirer journalist, Nikko Dizon wrote that Manila was monitoring three groups described as “external factors” behind the incident.
“These external factors' are one small faction that is in it for the money, an anti-Aquino administration group, and the Malaysian political opposition,” the daily's online website stated on Friday.
If the Philippines is monitoring these groups and our people are not, then I recommend that they too should also be hang until their feet stop kicking.
Even as we speak, somebody in the Malaysian government should already be blamed and, if they are anak jantan, should accept responsibility, for the security lapse that allowed such a big group of well-armed people to land on our shores.
