The above could be just another news item for some, a sad story for ardent F1 fans in the region and lost of a 'small revenue' for Bahrain.
Calling-off or rather postponing the F1 is no big deal as far as the oil-kingdom is concerned but the adverse negative publicity and the cancellation of the 2011 F1 opening race would be perceived as 'victory' for the purveyors of street-demonstrations in Manama.
Some Apes elsewhere may want to emulate or the 'victory' in Bahrain could get into the head of some lunatics in a peaceful prosperous nation like ours.
As a matter of fact we are almost entirely different from Egypt, Libya or Bahrain in any given aspect.
No one in a right state of mind could equate our system of governance, prosperity, economic growth, transparency, social justice and freedom to that of Libya, Bahrain or Egypt. (Malaysian students and citizens working in those nations would testify to this).
But we have a bunch of irresponsible politicians, who appear very keen to instigate Malaysians by drawing pararels with the uprisings in Egypt. These irresponsible lot are trying provoke the rakyat, in particular the younger generation, under the pretext of championing liberal democracy.
Trying to ride the Western wave of liberalism appears like a 'hip' or fashionable for this irresponsible politicians. Lately even a deputy minister seems to be singing the hip song.
There has been EARLY WARNINGs of such tendencies, insinuations and no-so-clear agendas.
Its easy to cry for greater freedom on the streets without looking back at the road we have travelled as a nation for the last half a century.
Study the salient points here @ the UnSpinners . The message in the last two postings appears very clear. The Royal Malaysian Police must carry out their responsibility to ensure public order and security before its too late.
Of late there seems to renewed interest in large scale street protest, or rather desperate attempts by politicians to fuel anger against the Government of the day.
In recent weeks leaders and followers of the Human Rights Party have also been pushing the barriers of law and order throughout the nation.
Take action before its too late (remember Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's failure to address the Hindraf-threat).
Prevention is better than cure! Use the Internal Security Act if necessary as the Act was enacted for the very purpose, INTERNAL SECURITY.
Its better to apply the ISA before the disaster and prevent any possible social unrest rather than invoking it out of desperation after the fire has started razing.
We are not against greater freedom, we are against rascals disguised as freedom fighters.
