Intrusion or Apathy?




Recently Singapore officials exposed or rather made subtle remarks that our territorial surveillance is so inept that we couldn't differentiate between commercial aircrafts and military jets.

I mean the Singaporeans were actually saying that we Malaysians (the concerned authorities including the Ministry of Defence) are so pathetic that our multi-million ringgit radars or the personnel analysing data from these radars couldn't tell the difference between a foreign air force jet and a commercial airliner.

The issue surfaced following a Malaysian MP's query in Parliament recently and the Defence Minister promptly replied that there was a total of 2058 intrusion into Malaysian airspace by Singaporean aircrafts since 2008.

This Singapore Story is not new to us. They have been playing this provocative game for a long time but are we now knowingly allowing them to make fun of our APATHY ?

More often than not we blame the snobbish Singaporeans and their acts of Kiasu-ness, BUT are we encouraging them to intrude into our home by leaving our doors unattended (or with doors wide ajar and a few sleeping guards)? 

Read how Singapore reacts to a similar situation when the ball is in their court. SMASH!

As usual, we have WARNED them before, 13 years ago and many more diplomatic notes after that, but are they still playing games with us?

Is THIS our problem ?


"With all these points, and the Singapore Ministry of Defense refuting these allegations by insinuating that there is a serious flaw in our 'eyes  and ears' of Malaysian airspace, it gets even more curious with the deafening silence of parties involved in the maintenance and operations of these radars." - Taikors n Taikuns

yeah... one of the problem is as highlighted by TnT. They all too dependent on Marconi and those Italians just fuck them and the RAMF front and back. Been to two radar sites 5 years back and can't believe the state of our radar system. Can't even help the RAMF as all repairs of upgrades need to go through Zetro (konsep payung). Needless to say, gave up in trying to repair the radar as Zetro was not interested in local help...

So are we saying the allegation made by the Malaysian opposition is true? That the intrusion is indeed happen ever since..? If that is the case :
Wajib to buy new radar!
