Even after signing the peace treaty, they NEVER apologised. Let alone express remorse.
And now some people want forgive and forget? What the fu*k? Pls stop the nonsense. Yes, people like Tunku Abidin et al, pls stop. Tunku, if you have any balls pls join the army.
I think this country, on both sides of the political divide - both a re equally at fault - is spending way too much time and effort on this.
There are far more urgent issues to be resolved. I find it amazing that people can even write about "the spectre of Communism" re-invading Malaysia. There are enough insidious forces here already without chasing extinct phantoms.
Modern Malaysian politics. A few grams of cremated chinaman, dog trainers, suraus, old flags and old poets, school toilets, crappy propaganda films about a 44-year-old incident, and finger-pointing all around. These drive the so-called "national debate".
The superficial elevated to important, the artificially racialised, the sabre-rattling. Both sides are at fault.
Get a grip, people.
These indians are masquerading as Malays.
Anyway, I am talking about method of disposing roadkills. No hard feeling readers out there..
Imagine if anyone esp Afghanis glorified Osama bin Laden as a war hero (he did fight the Soviet invasion and help drove them out), would you not squirm at the man that caused 3000+ people to die on 9/11?
So, why in any common sense would you glorify Chin Peng?
And stop comparing it to the Japs, the Japanese government had to apologies, pay out compensation, and their leaders were convicted of war trials, executed or hanged to death.
Yet you get CPM leaders who partake in maiming and killing of Malayan and Malaysian who walk away freely, and Chin Peng not regretting anything...put things in perspective before calling him a "independence hero".
so who the fuck glorified chin peng? are they waiting for another riot?
it's not a bad idea to allow the vile CP's ashes to be brought back.
the Opposition is going to capitalize on Chin Peng's death by getting a gigantic memorial to be built in Thailand - either Bangkok or Chiangmai to commemorate the late MCP's numero unos passing.
The will then make sure Malaysia's name is tarnished by putting in a stone plaque which states :-
"Here Lies The Remains of The Late Ong Boon Hua aka Chin Peng Because UMNO Government of Malaysia Broken The Peace Treaty of 1989 Signed By The Then PM, Thai Government & MCP"
We should not allow the Opposition to cast such a shame to Malaysia.
If his ashes are brought back; at least a memorial/shrine can not be had.
I shudder to think this will allow Communists Sympathisers to use this moment to attack Malaysia.
Haven't heard him apolologized. Besides, he was not a citizen of Malaysia, is he?
