In fact it's good to have them here in Malaysia as it placed our country as the biggest producer of rare earth products outside China.
Without Lynas, China has the monopoly of rare earth, which is crucial in the making of high-tech stuff.
Yup, without rare earth you would not even have your smartphones and computers among other things.
You all can go back to this blog's archive to read all my previous posts about Lynas.
And of course you all know that Pakatan people have been using the Lynas issue as their political weapon since before GE13 and now that they are in power, are trying to close the plant in Gebeng near Kuantan to prove their allegation that it's dangerous.
Well, it looks like they have won.
Apparently, Lynas can't be bothered with their bullshit anymore and plans to shift elsewhere.
Not to a corrupt third world country as the Pakatan people would want us to believe.
You know lah, last time they said BN was so corrupt to allow the dangerous Lynas into the country, putting everyone at risk of radioactive and turning everyone into mutant or zombie or something.
Well, the US don't seems to have any problem with Lynas.
Probably because they knew that there was nothing wrong with Lynas' operations and that they don't have to deal with Pakatan asshole politicians like Fuziah Salleh and Wong Tuck or opportunist ministers like Yeoh Bee Yin.
I know for a fact that Lynas would not lose much shifting its facilities from Malaysia to the US.
I did talk with a senior Lynas guy a few months ago and was told that if Lynas shifts out of Malaysia, it will dismantle everything in Gebeng.
So, it starts to happen now.
Lynas invested billions of ringgit via its operations here on top of more contribution to the local economy. Those will all be gone.
And other investors will also be weary about coming to Malaysia or staying there because its government is willing to kick them out for its political agenda.
But the saddest is that about a thousand Malaysians working at its facilities in Kuantan will lose their jobs. To suffer along with them are their family members and other dependants.
Bear in mind that quite a number of those Lynas workers are rare earth specialists whose talents were unique.
I met some of them, among whom, several were locals from villages near the plant whose education was sponsored by Lynas all the way to university and after graduation were offered jobs there.
What a waste. And that just because Pakatan politicians insisted on shutting down their work place to further their political interest.
I feel so sorry for those Lynas workers, especially that this news comes so near to Aidilfitri.
Lynas staff in Malaysia is 97 per cent locals with the overwhelming majority being Malay Muslims.
Well, maybe that's why Pakatan was ever willing to sacrifice their welfare for its political expediency.
Somehow I don't think those Pakatan politicians would pursue for Lynas' closure - despite all the scientific evidence that it's not dangerous - if the majority of its workers are Chinese.
DAP would not let that happen. I'm quite sure of that.
Anyway, how many Chinese lost or in danger of losing their job ever since Pakatan took over Putrajaya?
I know that tens of thousands of Malay Muslims lost their job already. That's a fact, okay.
Back to Lynas, I think you should watch this video again to understand the issue better.
The guys who made the video won an award from the Malaysian Press Institute the other day for their effort.
