Keyboard Worrier

The above is a video on the attack by Yemeni Houthi rebels on the Saudi Arabian frigate “Al Madinah” last month, taken from the YouTube channel belonging to Defence Updates.

For those who are not familiar with the Yemeni conflict, it is about forces loyal to the former President Ali Abdullah Salleh who was deposed during the 2011 Arab Spring now fight those who are loyal to President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi who won the 2012 elections unopposed.

Ali Abdullah Salleh is backed also by the Houthis who are Zaid Shia that are thought to be backed by Iran, a claim that has been denied by Iran.

The Houthis took control of the government through a series of actions and Yemen’s northern neighbour, Saudi Arabia, has announced this as an unconstitutional coup d’etat.

The Arab League, meeting in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt met in March 2015 and several countries of the League pledged military support for Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The following are countries that are now involved directly and indirectly in the Yemeni conflict through what is now known as ‘Operation Decisive Storm’ otherwise known as ‘Operation Storm of Resolve.’

As you can see, Malaysia is not involved in the conflict and has not committed any troops or assets to assist the coalition against the Houthis.

However, there will be those momes who insist that Malaysia is involved in Yemen.  The person below included:

In his delusion, the Royal Malaysian Air Force is involved in the bombing of Yemen, possibly getting the RM2.6 billion donation as well as the billions of Ringgits worth of investments announced recently during the visit of King Salman, for helping Saudi coalition forces bomb Yemen.

I checked the RMAF’s order of battle to see which bomber assets are involved in Yemen and found this:

RMAF AirCo DH.10 bombers that the RMAF used extensively during World War One in the Battle of Kampung Pisang
RMAF AirCo DH.10 bombers that the RMAF used extensively during World War One in the Battle of Kampung Pisang near Kampung Gajah in Perak. Over 2.6 billion enemy personnel and civilians died as a result of aerial bombing campaigns by the RMAF from 1914-18

That is how absurd the claim by Opposition supporters such as the above that they would dish out lies no matter how stupid it would make them look.

I would rather the police take action against the above rumour-monger.

So how is the RMAF involved in Saudi Arabia?

Malaysia works closely with Saudi Arabia on the issue of the Da’esh. The fortnightly consultations between the two governments do include, at times, issues on Da’esh and other terror groups.  Malaysia is a member of the Islamic Military Alliance to Fight Terrorism (IMAFT) although it does not provide men and assets tot he coalition, and has involved itself in ‘Exercise North Thunder’  with 20 other countries in the northern region of Saudi Arabia.

Malaysia gives support to the IMAFT but does not provide military assets

What about the reports saying there are RMAF C-130H transport aircraft with ground support crew stationed in Saudi Arabia?

The RMAF has flown out Malaysian workers and students out from Middle Eastern countries that are in a conflict.  During ‘Operation Pyramid’ the RMAF had had to evacuate workers and students out from Egypt TWICE.  The situation in Egypt is still as delicate as during the Arab Spring.

In April 2015, the RMAF flew 67 students whom had fled Yemen out of Djibouti to Jeddah.  However, 131 Malaysian students have refused to leave Yemen.

Therefore, the Malaysian government through Wisma Putra and the Ministry of Defence is monitoring the developments in the Middle East closely and prudently stationed RMAF transport assets in Saudi Arabia in case there is a need for an immediate evacuation of Malaysian citizens.

Those who think that this option is a waste of taxpayers’ money can blame those who have refused to leave the nations in conflict, but for a government that many claim to not care about its citizens, this is how it shows it cares the least.

The first revelation by Allah to Muslims was IQRA’ or READ.

Not many Muslims in Malaysia do even that.

Yang Tinggal Hanyalah Kekosongan Di Antara Sepasang Telinga

Beruk cimpanzi mempunyai nilai IQ bersamaan 40.  Manusia yang normal mempunyai IQ di antara 90 hingga 109.  Sekiranya anda mempunyai IQ yang kurang dari 80, maka IQ anda hanya sedikit lebih baik dari IQ seekor cimpanzi. Oleh sebab itu cimpanzi mudah diajar menggunakan “flash cards” ataupun “kotak.”  Mari kita tonton video ini:

Seronok, kan?

Baiklah.  Pada hari ini saya ingin menceritakan bagaimana Malaysia dikatakan telah menjual PETRONAS ataupun Projek RAPID di Pengerang kepada Arab Saudi sepertimana yang dinyatakan oleh beberapa tokoh Pakatan termasuk dengan para penyokong mereka.

Contoh pertama:

Cuba teka. Berapakah nilai IQ makhluk ini?
Cuba teka. Berapakah nilai IQ makhluk ini?

Adakah Malaysia telah menjual sebanyak 50 peratus saham Projek RAPID seperti yang didakwa oleh makhluk di atas?

Kita katakan kotak di bawah mewakili keseluruhan Projek RAPID:

square

Projek RAPID ini membabitkan pembinaan kilang penapis minyak mentah, pemisah nafta yang akan menghasilkan kira-kira tiga juta tan etilena, propilena, C4 dan C5 olefin (melalui proses yang dikenali sebagai “cracking”) setahun dan sebuah kompleks polimer dan petrokimia yang boleh mengeluarkan pelbagai bahan kimia berkaitan.

Projek ini juga mengandungi projek pembinaan terminal laut dalam, terminal regasifikasi (penukaran cecair kepada gas), terminal LNG, projek unit pengasing udara, projek pembekalan air mentah dan lain-lain.

Supaya cimpanzi-cimpanzi faham dengan lebih mudah, kita bahagikan kotak di atas kepada empat seperti di bawah:

boxes

Sekarang kotak di atas dibahagikan kepada A, B, C dan D yang mewakili kesemua projek-projek yang saya sebutkan di atas, yang dijalankan atau bakal dijalankan di Projek RAPID.

Untuk memudahkan cimpanzi-cimpanzi memahami perwakilan petak-petak kecil di atas, kita katakan bahawa projek penapisan minyak mentah dan “cracking” adalah diwakili oleh Petak ‘C’.  Secara kebetulan, huruf ‘C’ juga ialah huruf awalan untuk Cimpanzi.

Saudi Aramco telah membeli sebanyak 50 peratus dari saham Petak ‘C’ dengan nilai RM31 billion.  Maka, Petak ‘C’ kini menunjukkan pegangan saham sebanyak 50 peratus milik Saudi Aramco dan 50 peratus lagi milik PETRONAS.

boxes

Soalan saya sekarang ialah, bagaimana makhluk di atas, yang mewakili makhluk-makhluk yang sewaktu dengannya, boleh mencanangkan penipuan bodoh bahawa Projek RAPID kini 50 peratus milik Saudi?

Kebodohan ini juga terbit semasa makhluk-makhluk tersebut mencanangkan bahawa satu aset strategik tentera telah dijual kepada China. Bila terbukti bahawa dakwaan mereka itu satu penipuan yang nyata, mereka marah, tetapi tidak boleh memberi hujah berfakta untuk menidakkan kebodohan mereka itu.

Yang canang bodoh, yang sokong pencanang pun sama bodoh.

Saya kira anda faham dengan penjelasan mudah yang telah diberikan di atas.  Saya yakin anda mempunyai nilai IQ sebanyak 90 ataupun lebih.

Cimpanzi pun mungkin akan faham sebab saya menggunakan contoh kotak, iaitu satu cara paling berkesan untuk mengajar cimpanzi.

Sekiranya tidak, samalah anda dengan makhluk di atas, dan di bawah.

The Best Time To Sue On The RM2.6 Billion Donation

King Salman Abdulaziz Al-Saud salutes the colours

King Salman Abdulaziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia arived in Kuala Lumpur for a four-day state visit yesterday, making Malaysia his first choice of nation to visit since taking over the throne from King Abdullah Abdulaziz Al-Saud who died two years ago.  His visit is the third to Malaysia by any Saudi King.

The first visit by a Saudi King was in 1970 by the late King Faisal Abdulaziz Al-Saud, followed by the late King Abdullah Abdulaziz Al-Saud in 2006.  No Saudi King visited Malaysia for 36 years between 1970 to 2006.

Unbeknownst to many, Malaysia especially under the current administration is looked upon with high respect in the global scene, thanks to the tireless diplomacy conducted by both Prime Minister Najib Razak and Foreign Minister Anifah Aman.  Saudi would contact Malaysia at least every fortnightly to consult on many things including on matters involving the Middle East.  Malaysia’s stance on the Middle East countries, for example,  plays a huge role on how Saudi shapes its foreign policy.

It is of no surprise then when King Salman announced at the state banquet in his honour at the Istana Negara that Saudi is prepared to render Malaysia assistance to the latter’s initiatives to help Muslims.

We are ready to extend assistance and all resources that we have to help Malaysia realise its efforts to help other Muslims,” he said.

A day prior to King Salman’s arrival, U-Turn Mahathir made a veiled reference to the Saudi King, accusing him of lying and giving Malaysia money in want for something in return.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia donated a total of USD 115 billion to help 90 nations around the world.  The USD700 million given to Malaysia back in 2013 is not even one percent of the amount.

Furthermore, even ABC Australia’s investigative documentary ‘Four Corners‘ confirmed in 2016 that the USD700 million had nothing to do with 1MDB-linked companies.  The only allegation made which the US Department of Justice had based its investigation on was by U-Turn Mahathir’s errand-boy Khairuddin.

The Four Corners report confirms what the Prime Minister has maintained all along, and what multiple lawful authorities concluded after exhaustive investigations: the funds were a donation from the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.”

I am surprised that none of those who accused Najib of soliciting the RM2.6 billion (USD700 million) donation for himself has held a placard at the Parliament building to ask where has the donated money gone to.  Mahathir was not at the state banquet – it was the best opportunity for him to ask in person about the donation.

Pak Lah, U-Turn Mahathir's successor however can be seen on the far right in this picture of King Salman being conferred the highest award by the Yang DiPertuan Agong. This underscores the notion that U-Turn Mahathir is a persona non grata at the Istana

Even blabber-mouth Tony Pua is evidently and conveniently missing, choosing to be away from Malaysia when the Saudi King is here.

Lari! So that no one could ask "Why didn't you ask about the RM2.6 billion?"
Lari! So that no one could ask “Why didn’t you ask about the RM2.6 billion?”

Every detractor has gone missing or in hiding or crying beneath the shower as the best opportunity to hand over a suit over the “missing” RM2.6 billion slowly disappears.

This IS the best time to sue, people.  Not only did the Saudi Royal Family give RM2.6 billion, it has now brought RM62.26 billion on this trip!  Show some balls! This is the time!

Then again, if even Pakatan’s de facto leader U-Turn Mahathir dared not reveal the identity of the person he accused, what chance do you think his coward minions would dare to show the top of their head?
