World War 3
Will world war three start to explode in October 2012
with Israel's attack on Iran ? Right now USA and Israel
are trying hard to buy Russia and China out of the
conflict. Putin is easily bought. Russia's involvement
will be at supplying arms to Iran. China is too far and
is still busy with hardware development. With both the
power out the war between Iran and Israel will confined
to the Middle East only.
fact right now Israel's commandos are already operating
in Iran. A large number in Tehran focusing at the
elimination all the nuclear scientists. Iran is not
aware of this because it is concentrating more on the
Straits of Hormuz. The Israel's operatives will
cut short the war as they are penetrating the missiles
World War 3 is unlikely to happen. The Chinese is too
busy with it's economy and would not care with what the
Filipinos are doing. The Americans promise more
investments and more money. It is very unlikely the
Chinese will sacrifice their lives for the Muslim Iran.
Iran will need the help of Hezbollah to penetrate Israel
right now by any mean at all as what the Israel
commandos are doing. The move has to be fast but the
strike has to wait till the time the first bomb is
dropped by Israel on Iran.
North Korea is just a Don Quixote. It doesn't
prepare for a big war with USA or Japan. It is more
interested in defending itself against South Korea.
World War 3 will not happen in spite of Israel's attack
on Iran. The engagement will be fierce. Many lives

End of freedom in USA
To say that
Ron Paul stands out among the
other Republican presidential candidates is
an understatement. While his views on

West that taught us Liberty and Tyranny. ISA was not
manufactured by the Malays or the Chinese but by the
British. The arrest without trial and the inhumane
treatment had been justified upon anyone called
terrorists. In this country ISA belongs to the British.
We now claim
it is against the Principal of Human Right and liberty.
Washington is criticizing China and North Korea heavily
on the same issue. China does not respect human right
and freedom. Muslim countries do not provide freedom and
force their women to wear Hijab.
Then we have
to look at the United States. Bush said," We were
attacked because they hate our freedom...."
What is the
freedom of Washington ? It is the freedom to call anyone
terrorist. Even Ron Paul and his supporters are called
terrorists. Is it not shocking ? It is the freedom to
arrest anyone without trial indefinitely under the
Patriot Act (ISA in Malaysia). It is the freedom for the
police to enter American homes, to tap their phones and
computers, to confiscate properties and cars of
suspected terrorists without warrant or court permission
under NDAA. ( Type The End of Liberty in the search
engine to know the various new acts).

places banned by the authority.
and Human Right is Washington talking about ? A person
is presume guilty until proven innocent. How could they
be proven innocent when they are arrested without trial.
The best of
all other countries outside USA is they do not have to
raise funds before the election and therefore there is
no big lobby group that can decide national policy

has to be made. The initial assessment of the winning
war with only 500 death of Israel army has to be
reviewed. The lone attack is fatal. The unexpected will
happen. Towards the losing battle Israel will have to
seek the usage of a nuclear bomb.
Otherwise USA has to intervene. The Gulf war will
escalate to Southeast Asia. If and only if the total US

Israel knows this. She still believe her air power is

Israel is buying time to gather more intelligence
on Iran and to manufacture the hardware to match the

Men, Judges and Courts
All men are not judges. But all judges are men. Since
all men are fallible then judges too make mistakes. A
judge can make mistake at home or somewhere else but not
in court's decision. A court is to punish to guilty and
protect the victims.
It is my view that a judge should not show mercy. He
decides base on rationale and facts laid in front of
him. The punishment has been set in the book and he has
to abide to them. If a drug pusher has been proven as
charged a judge has to follow what the book says about
the relevant punishment. He cannot show mercy just
because the guilty person is an old man with 10 kids.
To avoid unfairness a judge has to follow a certain
global principles. The victim must not be punished.
Whenever there is a conflict of interest the public
interest must come first over an individual. There is no
innate contention to convict a person even before a
trial begins. All men must be equal before a court.
Behind a judge is a prosecutor. A prosecutor must be as
fair as the judge by presenting the truth and the real
non-manufactured evidence, does not hide or alter
evidences as to cause technical doubts that at time
allow the criminals to go free.
A judge though fallible must try his best to avoid
things that can bring down the image of a court.
When there is a public cry over a court judgment shown
by proofs and rebuttals then the image of a court and
judiciary is at stake. Hence a court cannot be divine as
it is a judge who administer justice, and a judge is a
It is easy for a judge to make judgment on a person who
commit crime on himself; like a suicider. A man who
attempts to commit suicide has committed a crime on
himself. A court decision only effect that man.
A member of a general public or a government cannot
command a judge to side him. Only a tyrant and despotic
government would force the judge to side it. This had
happened here during Mahathir's era. Today the judges
are seen much braver and fairer. In spite of it the
judge must always remember his role, try to be as divine
as possible, namely the ultimate fairness.

DO WE TEACH
Do we teach creativity ? I don't believe creativity can
be taught. Every child of every race and color were born
with minds full of intelligence and creativity. They
began to differ and take shape as commanded by the
environments; social, economic and cultural. Creativity
evolves in free environment. No kid can be creative if
the parents think for them, the school and the
government think for them. In a repressive surrounding
creativity will not flourish.
When kids tossed their ideas it would not be wise to shut
him off. Neither should we imposed rules on them. Any
taboo should be well explained.
We have been observing the Russians and the Americans
during when Soviet Union was still alive. There were
many differences between the Russian and the American
products in term of appearance and quality. The
Americans were much more superior in all aspects. One
was from a despotic government and the other from a free country.
Wherever there is restriction there is a limit for our
mind to wander.
Setting up of rules will pull the minds to the set
rules. We thus create a border or sets of borders. As a
result without the
rules and guidance people will get lost. They would not
be able to think and would not know how to think.
Children and kids are more creative than the elderly who
will experience mental decay as ageing catches up.
Memory will fade and physical prowess deteriorate,
including sexual virility. Children's ability and
creativity are wonderful. Taking a native child out of
the hinterland and the deep desert and put him in a well
flourish school will prove the vital role of an
environment in shaping intelligence and creativity.

stations as hams would be absurdities to some. Of course
it is difficult to do the counting, almost impossible.
In a way it is unscientific.
My way required
data on the licensees of each country and it is compared
to the number of people heard on the band on any
frequency. A country with 10000 licensees with only 20
active stations heard for the whole 5 years would
contain only 20 hams in my account.
There are those who
passed but never buy rig for the whole life. There are
those who were very active for the first 10 months and
then totally unheard of for the next 10 years. There are
those who come on the band once in a blue moon.
There are hams who
don't come on the ham band but prefer to communicate
with those without license forming their own community
using a separate special call sign. And there those who
chat using internet, even calling CQ on network
communication soft wares.
There were claims
that ham populations are on the rise. Yet a few express
concern on the dropping in numbers. Below I am quoting
someone about the ham population
“However, proliferation of the Internet and its
popularity among youth has caused the decline of
In the past five years alone, the number of people
holding active ham radio licenses has dropped by 50,000,
Morse Code is no longer a requirement.”
There were several
articles expressing similar thing.
Compare the era
without internet and today the old hams really know the
different. Hams can't even see each other. Free
communications with children studying overseas were
almost impossible. Today you can sleep with your mum far
away by bringing the iPad to bed.
By the air count I
would say the population is declining. By the ratio of
active hams to licensees shows the declining also.

The arrogance of Malaysia Airport should push it

Cathay offered a very low fair to USA as compared to

MAS before Tajuddin, under Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Abdul
Rahman, was my first choice. I chose the airline more
than 15 times for my holiday trips to USA. Ticket was
cheap and food was abundance. The starting point was
Mahathir's crony. You may blame Tajuddin but I say it
was all the Kutty affair.
It is painful to let MAS die. It is no way out, the
choice we don't want to do but we have to. The share
holders have to accept the win and lost of gambling.
Buying share is a gamble. Yet Mahathir called the Malays

ineffective people anywhere in the world to shift the

Can I ask how many
police personnel are implanted among the people right

members ? And how many during the Mahathir's era ? NONE

personnel to take care of especially during Mahathir ?
I am not going to say
more about crime buster. The police can do if they
really want to . They can always learn from Singapore
and use their imagination.
It is just our habit

'innocent until proven guilty' to 'guilty until proven
innocent', crimes happen because the victims made them
happen, enacting laws to legalize robberies.

course we are waiting for the robbers to break into

am. I would become a worse person if I become too smart.
I would have written volumes of books that may hurt
plenty of people. I may be a great liar with my
eloquence and twisting words and facts.
compensate my past errors I can tell the others to do
the right things; study and work hard, have a good
attitudes, do not depend on others to survive, do not
avoid learning English and other languages and request
people to be strong in mind.

analytical. Language was the poorest. I do not lie of
the weakness not to write a blog. I want to express
myself, my feeling and my dislikes. They may not
be the truth but to me they are true enough. If I get
one or two persons to read and agree with my thought it
is good enough. It is the very few who change the world

It was disturbing to
see the performance some of the Malay schools run by the

Turning around low
Examining the school's exam results in the rural areas
in some states we will find them very disturbing. These
are the Malay schools with the Malay teachers. You need
to visit those schools to find out what are really
happenings. I am sure you will discover shocking things.
In short there is little teaching going on. The pride of
the teachers in those schools is the big fat salary they
will come with the same excuse. The kampong kids do not
have the interest to learn and the parents couldn't care
would like to ask the UMNO Educational Bureau what have they
been doing all these days ? And what does Ibrahim Ali
and the rest of the UMNO members do ?
Chinese are far ahead, it is not the Chinese who are to
blame. Blame the teachers and their employer who have no
time to scrutinize the progress of the Malays as a
whole. Malaysia is not Putrajaya or Kuala Lumpur. And
the welfare of Malay education is not only in the hand
of the Ministry of Education.

talked to one teacher friend about 'commitment' or 'kesedaran'.
The later contains a deeper meaning. Kesedaran is to
pull the Malays out of the abyss of ignorance and
stupidity, to make them able to think in a correct way,
to understand the meaning of hard work, to be able to
compete in literacy, sciences and mathematics.
Teachers cannot be lazy because they receive handsome
pay. They have to find ways and means to make their
teachings effective, to make the students love to study,
to make difficult things easy. If animals and fish can
be taught and trained, what excuse can we accept for
failing to deliver ?
upon a time I overheard police officers cursing teachers
as number one enemy. Those were the days when teachers
were accused of campaigning against Mahathir. If
teachers are said to be problematic then I would have
agreed. A few have no interest in advancing their own
urban schools teachers are more dedicated. Hard working
teachers who are concerned with their students are not
happy with their lazy counterparts. They too shook their

Ready to go home
in Malaysia today is between 8.00 - 5.30 from

facilitate persecution and at the same time depicting
that the brain is not good enough. It made us wonder how
many of UMNO members passed the college degree. We would
be surprise to know the highest educational level for
someone is only vocational school and the other only LCE.
Stopping people from talking means to be able to proceed
with the plundering of public funds. What is meant by
plundering ? When we see huge sum of money in the public
coffers we want to have them. So we will start thinking
the way to transfer them out. One common way is to think
of a project. At a face value project seems to bring
benefit. We gave names and titles to these projects.
Then we give the projects to our friends or to the
ex-Ministers or their sons. That's it. We don't care
what really happen after that.
also means a government can do atrocities without being
opposed and criticized. You may say 'parliament is
already enough for criticism'. Enough ? There are topics
and cases brought up by the opposition were rejected by
the parliament. It is never enough.
Criticism is healthy because it provides checks and
balances. Had not because of the internet cases like the
PKZ, NFC and hundreds more may have not been surfaced.

guarantee can we have that UMNO will not sell the Malays
and the Malay land with this new Act ? What guaranteed
can we have that public funds will not be freely given
to friends and cronies ? What guarantee that we can have
that there will be no wastage after this ?
Suppressions and atrocities will drive the people under
ground. They will become smarter, devising codes to pass
news and messages and plan hell in the dark caves.

strange sound, animals death and sky change
may be attributed to HAARP but the change in

strange year. Strange things are happening from what
happen to the non-human things to the human beings. The
Mayan calendar ended in 2012 and people are comparing
the prophesies of some famous men with the prophesies of
the bible. One Japanese woman said in the coming
December the whole world will be without light for three

Christians are saying
those strange things you see on the video clip on the

destruction of Damascus and the Holly City of Mecca. Isa/Jesus

On the other hand what
people do not realize that those strange happenings are

is called HAARP. HAARP modifies weather, causing

sexual activities and adultery is not as strange as the
same sex marriage. It looks like only the Christians
approve it and legalize it in the law. It is also
strange when nudity is allowed but Hijab is opposed. It
is also strange when head of states and community
leaders are from a bunch of gangsters and mafia.
If the current changes
are divine in nature ie. determined by God as the sign
of the end then where is exactly Dajjal ? What is with
one eyed and most powerful and having a strong influence
in the world today ? Is Illuminati and the nation of
North America itself a Dajjal ?
Najib is scared of
losing his post. But someone says he is the last Prime

Almost all housewives I talked to know what their
husbands do. At least 90% of husbands talk about their
work and problems at their work place to their wives
during meal time. What they usually hide is about their
affair with women.
Some men talk to their drivers too. And wives as well as
drivers can influence even major decisions.
working women ever said that they didn't know or care
husbands did. In fact they can give detail
narration of the daily activities. Smart women and women
of high status are more careful and want to make sure
their husbands will not get involve in jobs that might
ruin their image, especially a Minister.
Ministers and Presidents need to know what their wives
and kids do, who their friends are and where they go. In
fact there are places that the spouses and kids are
bared to go. For Ministers to say they don't care what
their spouses do they have to be a big lie.
the normal man on a street image does not mean a thing
and therefore he will not give special attention to it.
They won't caution their children or wives the danger of
misbehaving or getting involve in
bad companies and illegal activities.
to ask any Minister now about their spouse's jobs. Ask
the lawyers and engineers and court judges the same
the government servants, the Head of Departments were
told that it is our duty to know and find out whatever
happen in our department. When a school clerk steal some
money, the head has to go to jail. There is no such
thing as 'I don't know she is going to cheat'. The
government keeps on telling us that it is our job to
image of a Minister will go down automatically if his
son is found guilty of pushing drug, whether he is aware
of it or not. His image depends on his spouse and
friends who may blame him is not stupid enough to listen
to people's words. Have we forgotten that someone says,"
If he is not a Minister would the family got the favor
?" Surely a normal man wouldn't be able to get 50 or 60
acres of land that simple.
normal relationship of husbands and wives is
almost near to the correlation between an action
to an effect; you put fingers near a fire you will feel
hot, you hold an ice you will feel cold. You are with

UMNO ulama should very well aware the reasons why the

given by UMNO in return for a vote and the salary paid

purchase of Scorpene ? How about the money for cows
being used to buy condos ? How about the fabrication of
cases and evidence by UMNO ? How about the constant sex

YES, I suppose the UMNO ulamas gave the green light to
all those sins and crimes.
I come to believe that there must be two different
mosques; the UMNO and the non-UMNO mosque. Already we
have a Haji whose daughter is an UMNO member has been
rejected as an Imam. A Satan can take shape of any form and
dress like anyone. One Ulama allowed an UMNO Menteri
Besar to use the Zakat money, saying 'What can I do. He
is a Menteri Besar.' In his preaching he called us to
fear God not man.

concurrently namely the nation court of law and the
people's court. The court of law may free a murderer but
the people's court don't. The people still believe that
TBH was murdered. And Altantuya was murdered by those
who approved the C4 bomb. The people judge whether a
government is corrupt or not. Both givers and acceptors

Effectiveness is not a

when the street is free of drugs, petty thefts and

foreign press, and display the statistics on the huge
bill board. They can use the media and the big hailers

what is happening on the street.
There have been an
outcry that the police simply allows crime to happen

It allows corruption. Nobody dare to arrest the
Ministers who corrupt the people. And police said
politicians are more dangerous than the criminals.
The police should stop
taking orders from UMNO politicians and Ministers. They
are not working for Najib and Hishamuddin. They are to
serve the public. The first priority is the public
safety. Have a gut to say NO when orders are given to
commit murder like what has happened to Al-Tantuya or to
the fabrication of evidence or to cause harm to members
of the opposition leaders.

even Lim Guan Eng then he is really killing himself. He
feared an apparition , the non-existing enemies and

Olympic medal count to place the position is really
crazy. It is not base on the number of the gold anymore

is ahead of the the 5 gold winner. It has never been
