I think Hishammuddin was wrong or intentionally being wrong on this;
How can the US, UK and Australia pact destabilise this region when it's already being destabilised by the communists in Beijing, who claim almost the whole of South China Sea as their own and built artificial islands there with tonnes of missiles on them?
Aren't it them who repeatedly sent warplanes into our airspace and militarised ships into our waters?
Why then are we condemning the pact which may help us defend our territory?
Whether we like it or not, we have to admit that we don't have enough military strength to push back Beijing's expansionism.
If we really want to defend our rights in South China Sea, we have to align ourselves with stronger powers.
Otherwise, we should just shut up and give those area that Beijing wants by giving up our claims in those waters.
Or are we going to just protest whenever the PLA ships and aircraft intruded into our territory?
How about if the PLA lands its troops on a Malaysian island and plant their flag there?
How about if that happened in Labuan?
Are we going to just protest that one too?
Seriously, I think Hishammuddin had gotten a bit less clever ever since he went to buy some warships from China when he was the defence minister.
Okay, I know that most Malaysian leaders tried very hard to please the communists in Beijing as we want them to invest here, but are we that hard up for their money to the point of letting ourselves be bullied by them?
Honestly, I don't like to see the US and its allies as the ones we have to rely on to counter the PLA threats but it looks like at this moment we don't have much choice in this.
Even if we don't like them to have a pack like Aukus, I don't think we should condemn it as destabilising.
My personal opinion is that the pact actually have an opposite effect to the one claimed by Hishammuddin, as it would send a signal to Beijing that they can't go around bullying smaller countries like Malaysia and simply take whatever they want that rightfully belong to others.
As it is, Beijing is threatening to invade Taiwan. That, I think is something we should condemn instead.
If that really happened, the whole region will be plunged into chaos and hundreds of thousands, if not millions will die, especially among the Taiwanese civilian population.
A conflict like that will not drag in only US, UK and Australia, but also Japan, South Korea and the other Asean countries.
We will also be forced to take side as the war will definitely spread into the South China Sea where we also have claims to a portion of it.
Are we, as a democratic country not obliged to contribute to the defence of fellow democracies such as Taiwan?
Or are we going to side with Beijing for money?
We have a very confused Menhan. He is in love with our bullyReplyDelete
Hishammuddin is always been a PRC lapdog, buying toothless Littoral Mission Ship (LMS) from China which cost equivalent to or more than OPV (Offshore Patrol Vessel) price. Your first term as Defense Minister under your preview, the Littoral combat ships (LCS) which stuck 8 years delay. Your smart arse tries to save money by an enlarged version of the Gowind-class corvette, to Light Frigate(LCS) which costs to redesign the entire ship and BluePrint.ReplyDelete
At the end of the day, without Navy assets to patrol Malaysia EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone ) has caused your Big Brother- PLA - Navy, Airforce and Coast Guard incursion Malaysia EEZ without contest. No proper reaction once you're Foreign Minister to send an appropriate protest letter to PRC on the violations of UNCLOS and infringement on a littoral state’s continental shelf.
agree with annie. money cant trade maruah but can buy a umno minister.ReplyDelete
Enemy at the gate Part 8 : Pandora Papers dan ‘Singapura jadi lubuk penyangak penyamun dan pencuri menyimpan duit luar negara’.ReplyDelete
Ramai terlepas pandang kes ‘Pandora Papers’ ada kaitan dengan kekayaanb Bekas Pengerusi Majlis Penasihat Kerajaan (CEP), Tun Daim Zainuddin dan anak-anaknya di luar negara.
“Tanpa pendedahan itu, rakyat tidak tahu anak Daim jutawan sejak umur sembilan dan 12 tahun. Rakyat tahu kekayaan anak Tun M (Tun Mahathir Mohamd). Kalau anak orang lain, mesti meletop panas.
Dari 'ultra' jadi barua Lee Kwan Yew@DAP. Bila berhadapan dengan Sungapura barua Lee Kwan Yew@DAP ini begitu lunak melayani karenah Singapura. Hingga Pulau timbul tenggelam pun di serah pada abak Lee Kwan Yew pula..!!
Rupa rupanya pendedahan Kertas Pandora inilah caranya Singapura mengugut anjing dan barua mereka patuh pada karenah Singapura.
“Najib (Datuk Seri Najib Razak) bukan jutawan. Tetapi dikorek sampai ke lubang cacing. Bahkan dimalukan. Aset disita dan diviralkan.
Cubaan dibuat untuk kaitkan kotak kotak itu dengan 1MDB adalah satu umpan yang mudah manipulasi sentimen rakyat marhaen.
Pendedahan tersebut juga membawa kepada satu rahsia besar di mana Singapura dijadikan sebagai tempat untuk menyimpan duit di luar negara. Pandora Papers Dakwa 10 Rakyat Malaysia Simpan Kekayaan Di Sungapura.
Syarikat milik Daim adalah syarikat pelaburan atau syarikat pengurusan hartanah, dengan hartanah berkenaan memperoleh pendapatan sewa dan dibeli melalui pinjaman daripada bank Barclays di Knightsbridge, London.
Dalam Pandora Papers sahaja, syarikat dan firma pemegang amanah yang dimiliki oleh anak-anak, isteri atau rakan perniagaan Daim bersama-sama memegang aset bernilai sekurang-kurangnya GPP25 juta (kira-kira RM141 juta).
Singapura adalah lima negara teratas di dunia yang menyalurkan dana ke negara-negara dengan rejim cukai rendah (atau bahkan tidak ada sama sekali) seperti Luxembourg, Cyprus dan Jersey serta Caribbean seperti Kepulauan British Virgin, Bermuda dan Bahamas. Celaka lah talibarut dan barua Singapura.
Pandora Papers juga mendedahkan bsgaimana aktiviti Orang Kaya di Indonesia Memanipulasi Pajak dan menyembunyikan kekayaan mereka di Singapura.
Darah perlu dibalas darah maka kejahatan perlu dibalas dengan cara yang lebih berhemah. Elok lah Langkawi atau Labuan dijadikan hub rejim cukai rendah seluruh dunia bagi menyaingi aktiviti cukai di Singapura.
Audio krisis Melaka: Siapa intip, bocorkan rakaman perbualan?ReplyDelete
kah kah kah.... setakat rakam audio apa ader hal bro Bodin ooii... ada Video pun bole kata sama tapi tak serupa..
Sejak semalam telah berlegar di media sosial satu rakaman audio yang didakwa antara bekas Ketua Menteri Melaka, Idris Haron dengan Perdana Menteri, Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
Perbualan yang dirakam itu berkisar mengenai pergolakan politik Melaka selepas Idris dan tiga lagi Adun menarik sokongan menjatuhkan Ketua Menteri, Sulaiman Md Ali minggu lalu.
Bagi yang biasa mendengar suara Idris dan Ismail, baik secara perbualan biasa atau melalui televisyen, pasti tidak sukar mengenalpasti bahawa audio itu adalah melibatkan kedua-dua mereka.
Bodin ohh Bodin... stakat audio tak laku dahhh... ada video pun kabur la besi la... video tag line "Allah sayanggg" pun ada walaun kata tekonlogi tinggi pala punai dier org la weeeiii...!!
Orang bodo bangang jer yg suka terkinja kinja...!!

i am not a china apologists, but you need to calm down.
Laaaaaa........don't try to get deep lah, Annie.
Geopolitics? Kih kih kih.
We need more Adib posts from you.
There's a new committee that will pay off some keling to say he definitely saw some other keling doing it, so finally the Melayu community gets justice.
Wider lesson? "It's okay for crooked developers to pay thugs to attack a temple."
Oh......and the young Ah Moi who murdered all those poor "basikal lajak" Melayu kids?
AG is appealing.
Sokong AG cket lah Annie. Don't let the DAP bitch go.
After all, you would have been able to see those kids at 3.20am going the wrong way down a dark road, kan?
Wider lesson? "It's okay for parents to let their kids endanger road users at 3am."
Your blogging really improves human society, kan Annie?
Aisay Annie... surprised this post did not get yr knickers(assuming u do wear one) in a twist. Think of it....so v true. The Africans of d East n d slit eyed monsters always kena fr this Malay- Muslim gomen. Some keluarga we are. Pandora's kotak will not b opened...mcm mana boleh hukum orang Kita.Kita kena Jaga umat Islam.Delete
Prc needs deep craven around spratley island to hide thier nuke sub. Thier sub are so noisy because its cooling system can be detected thousand of km away. For that they rarely venture out to pacific ocean. They are perfecting thier icbm with mirv to hit conus from there. Aukus is needed to balance the power. So why we worry. We should stay neutral. Aussie needs hunter killer nuke sub as undersea detector to detect the movement of these sub. PRC started this when they started building bases in south china sea.So dont blame Aussie or Aukus.It is already a joke claiming south china sea as thier. It is like US claiming whole Pacific ocean belong to themReplyDelete
Something wrong with Sham. He is spouting nonsense and illogical statements. He is getting senile.Mat Sabu roti john standard haha. Hello UMNO members, people are not stupid, they have facts. Its all over the international news China is angry with AUKUS. No need for him to ask haha... Maybe he don't have internet access but we all do. Trying to look smart don't work anymore. You got to be smart. We don't have to telan the stupid things Najib, Maathir do like giving up PUlau Batu PutEh, waTR agreemENt wVEN with Small islANd nAtion. Why Sham waNt to poke his nosE. Nothing he says or do will affect anything. Let the Mat Salleh handle the China Communists. China Communists are a threat to our security. Don't waste your breath. There are things that diplomacy can do but you are just defence minister and according to UNCHR website nearly 180 ,000 Myanmar poor citizen army have breach Malaysia borders haha.... Maybe he don't even know unhcr website. Why don't he concentrate on our border with Myanmar,Thailand, Vietnam Indonesia. Everyone seems want to come to Malaysia. But when can Sham do? Army, NAvy airforce are they not available...poor Malaysia, UMNO Presidents incompetence for 60 years askar melayu nak tahan kemasukan Rohingya pun tak tahu.ReplyDelete
Malaysia needs China for its economy. Malaysia needs AUKUS for its security. But security from who?? China??ReplyDelete
Has China invaded any country in its long history?
Mongols did but they are not Chinese and they had in fact invaded China and set up the Yuan dynasty tht had ruled China over a hundred years.
China had threatened Taiwan for how long? With all its might and military it could have invaded the island long time ago. But did it?
I dont need to elaborate here how many countries in the world tht the AUKUS member countries have plundered, colonized and occupied in the past 300 years.
In terms of survival, we need economy stability and security. But personally I would rely more on China.
security from ccp 9 dash line.Delete
look at china territory from qin and before, tell us is china expanding or shrinking? or is it too long a history?
yuan is part of china according to ccp, some even said genghis khan is chinese becauae mongolian is now recognized as minority, else how ccp make so many claim of territory on historical basis? (btw, there are two political parties in the world that keep talking history to bully the minority and others, guess who?)
ccp did invade islands belong to taiwan like jinmen but fail miserably with all it might and military.
ccp invaded tibet and xinjiang when colonial power started to withdraw after ww2, perhaps we shd take the last 70 years as gauge?
good you can choose who you prefer to rely on, usa ccp pejuang umno bersatu or pas, if you live in china, your only choice is ccp, no such thing as personally.
Tibet. Manchuria. Well mate. What they cannot invade they bankrupt the country with loan you cannot pay than seize the asset. Does not respect unclos. You think they are giving for free.Transfer of thier technology to them is espionage. In early 30s they are copying a russian aircraft technology.In early 70s they are copying american rocket technology. Father of chinese rocket is Caltech usa trained Engineer.Now they are trying to copy Taiwan microchip technology.Dont rely on them too much. 5G technology was developed 3gpp not by chinese but by canadian and us technology but they are selling thru a chinese company. SO beware of " GREEKs" bearing gifts.Delete
not invasion but constant encroachment, slowly they will claimDelete
Happening for years, they already encroached and taken away Indian land in sikkim
there is no consequence until ASEAN gets its act together and china friendly regimes like cambodia start supporting its neighbours
we don't need AUKUS or else because Singapore is already there. If we want make war and allies Malaysia no need to joint AUKUS.ReplyDelete
What we need is to strenghten our allies with Indonesia our same faith neighbourhood. And Together with Thailand and Vietnam that makes AUKU not functioning at all...!! Period
H2O should just stay quiet. Malaysia is best not positioning herself with either Aukus or China for now. Let's see what it is to come. The immediate issue is China vessel came dangerously close to our shore. Act on this one. We'd like to see our shores are better patrolled to keep China away. Not that we don't have maritime assets to do this.ReplyDelete
ASEAN should look into this. Talk talk talk no end. Where is the maritime coorperation ? ASEAN misses the bigger thread over fishermen and smugglers violating each other's waters. It is impossible to act alone against China aggressive navy. But when Asean 10 puts up a pact, it may have China's attention. Don't wait. Vietnam, Philipphines, Indonesia, Brunei and Malaysia, we have a common problem; China navy. Disguised as research ship.
We should instead rationalise the French to submit free submarines by negotiating the ruckus...ReplyDelete
Many way's Indeed...

Sultan Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar terkilan dengan tindakan kerajaan ketika pentadbiran bekas Perdana Menteri, Dr Mahathir Mohamad pada 2018 yang tidak meneruskan permohonan semakan serta pentafsiran kes Pulau Batu Puteh.
Baginda turut mempersoal adakah soal kedaulatan Johor seolah-olah tidak penting kepada kerajaan pada waktu itu.
“Adakah kita negeri anak tiri? Kalau tak suka Johor…Cuba kalau Malaysia kehilangan Pulau Langkawi kepada Thailand, bagaimana rasa orang Kedah agaknya,” katanya di Facebook.
Sultan Ibrahim turut menggesa tindakan diambil ke atas mereka yang bertanggungjawab melakukan kecuaian dan kekhilafan kerana tidak meneruskan permohonan semakan serta pentafsiran kes Pulau Batu Puteh.
Semua pulau pulau strategik seperti Singapura sedekah pada Lee Kwan Yew, Pulau Pinang sedekah pada Francis Light Pulau Batu Putih baru serah 2 tahun lepas oleh Tun pada anak Lee Kwan Yew..!!
Inilah angkara pemimpin dari Kedah Lama di Utara Semanjung. Bab akidah hangpa suma nak fakta jugak ka..!?
