waythamurthy…wayTha minute.!

Malaysian Insider news article:

Another minister tells Waytha to go if he can’t toe the line

The Defence Minister has joined a growing chorus calling on Deputy Minister P Waythamoorthy to resign from his Cabinet position if he wants to act like a representative of a non-governmental organisation.

Echoing Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who made the same call yesterday, Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein said Waythamoorthy, the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, should think rationally before making statements now that he is in government..

“Being emotional on it is not the right way of a leader. I support Datuk Zahid….101 percent. As Cabinet ministers we have to be responsible

( but it is exactly the problem here, WaythaMurthy is thinking rationally for once and expressing his very responsible remark to his own concerned community , and poor sod is being held to task and villified for it )

“We cannot place our personal political interest above the collective interest of the government,” he said after meeting US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel in Kuala Lumpur today.

Ahmad Zahid had told the former Hindraf leader to quit his Cabinet position after Waythamoorthy had questioned the police shooting of five alleged gang members.

“In the war against crime, there should be no quarter given to criminals,” Ahmad Zahid had said. ( Except for  criminals on assault charges , that type of  lawbreakers can be allowed not only a quarter but even 3 quarters or make up one whole.) ( at the same token no quarter given also includes condoning  cold blooded  execution of human beings aka Malaysians who break the law)

Waythamoorthy had said he will not be silent on issues just because he is in the government. ( and so Waytha , you gotta put up or shut up or get the heck out) (full report)

What gives? Hishamudin covering Zahid’s back..?

But then it  also has the same stench from the same toilet that he was not able to clean up during his shift as the toilet maintenance guy. Now it falls on Zahid Hamidi to purify the smell and clean up the reeking stench emanating from the department..

But Waytha is appointed by Najib..in default means He ought to be in Najib’s camp..is Waytha turning out to be a wild stallion that Najib is having a hard time to rein.

It may also mean that Najib is having second thoughts on his decision to appoint WayThamurthy , figuring that He doesn’t need him afterall..? He did do admirably well garnering the Malay votes which turns out is enough to keep him in place. He doesn’t need the support of the other communities if the  results of the GE  13 were any indicators

So he just needs to go all out to consolidate his standing among the Malay electorate and that will be enough. All others be damned ,for all he cares. Main thing now is to endear himself and UMNO to the Malay voters and  he will do just fine.

WaythaMurthy. ? A useless liability? Nothing useful Waytha can contribute to his  table or stable. Not much of a vote bank or community support to draw from seeing as  Waytha’s  own ethnic community’s support base seems to have abandoned him in droves. .

Get rid of him and good riddance ..”Tak Boleh pakai “,  just like the products and grads of our Education system.

Najib has to use the combined forces of his cousin and Zahid now  and more recently , Najib’s poster boy of suave and intellect ,the Berhormat-ted , OX-ed educated of a  Minister, K. J  ,   and probably few “more influential” voices that may emerged if it really comes down to that and he will need to borrow  more firepower or  manpower to send a message  to  get him to pack his bags or fall in line and  Kiss his hand whenever He extends it to Waytha’s face .

Waytha is supposed to kiss and lick the Hand,,ai..yo yo…Not bite IT..!

So it will be interesting to note whose voices will emerge calling for the ouster of Waythamurthy..since it can be  ascertained by the names whose side they  are on.

Whether it is from Najib’s camp  or the other side of UMNO..or sending a message on Whose side They want to be seen on. or will be setting up camp..

So far Zahid Hamidi- Hishamuddin , KJ , all undoubtedly Najib’s unwavering and grateful loyal sidekicks.. and  the voices that may surface in a common call for Waytha’s resignation can be an indicator of who are  Najib’s supporters within UMNO and who is not..as the battle lines are drawn pre election and the troops align themselves behind their preferred Generals who will make their positions clear in days to come..

.

As for WaythaMurthy , he should take to heart these  Chinese sayings from the 36 stratagems..

Borrow knife to dispose of  person ?” or  more accurately ” Killing with a borrowed knife.” which essentially means borrowing other’s people power to help  eliminate a threat. When one doesn’t want to reveal themselves, “borrow a knife” (from an outside force) to eliminate a threat. By doing this, other’s people power can be used for  own gain.

Creating rivalry among two groups is a powerful way to borrow other’s people power. It may be possible  to swallow up one or both groups once they are exhausted from their bitter rivalry.

Creating distrust and anger between your enemy’s leader and followers is also another way to borrow people’s power. Either the leader or the followers will be removed in the end. Either way, your competitor will become powerless. That is what it means to “kill with a borrowed knife”.

( mull over the split in Hindraf now ,Uthaya and Waytha camps and contemplate on this strategy above ? )

” funeral service is over , no more need for the taoist priest” or ” pulling the plank after crossing the bridge !” –

Both the above phrases basically  suggest ingratitude after one was recruited to help neutralize or counter threats that could have been destructive to an organization or individual  but  after the design was accomplished and problem solved , then the one recruited  is discarded like rubbish – of no more further use, seems to be a very popular tactic in political game plays.
Waytha needs to urgently decide- whose side does he want to be on..before the UMNO battle royale. (take no prisoners) erupt s..

And that also explains why  Najib has been so quiet all this time. but in actual fact his Silence is Deafening!

Why say anything when everything you say will be twisted and used back against you anyway..and also when you can have others who will gladly take the heat for you and be the bad cops.

Police needs to be on the Good Moral side not on the Evil  Dark side of the Force.

Yet  in good conscience , it needs to be considered that  the police are not the criminals and law breakers they hunt down and apprehend, a clear division must exist between good guys and bad guys..that has something to do with morality and human decency !

otherwise , what is the difference between law breakers and law enforcers , if all are stone cold killers , acting as reprehensibly as each other?

Police have a moral responsibility to respect and uphold the sanctity of our country’s laws. just because gun toting criminals may shoot and murder in cold blood, policemen cannot/must not have the same mentality as them . that is what separates the criminal low lifes / scumbags and our noble respected law enforcers.
if the police are just mindless  trigger happy killers , executing criminals at whim, then what is the difference between both ? It can also be classified as cold blooded murder unless of course they were in a firefight and had to shoot to kill justifying self defence . But if , for sake of argument , the criminals had been disarmed and neutralized, but they were still executed in cold blood?

Many will think, dangerous armed crooks who were shot and killed deserves what they get for breaking the law.! But if they were really executed in cold blood , then there is no separation of the law and which side the police  are on.  It will be like a lawless, wild wild west shoot 1st, ask later.
Police must always be on the moral high ground, no doubt , appreciated and honored for risking their lives upholding the country’s laws and protecting the public’s security.
But if the cops break the laws they uphold, then meaning and significance of their role is lost. Therefore they cannot be or act like the criminals they  hunt  or else they will risk being labelled as criminals with badges, licensed to kill ? Not a good image.

Armed and Dangerous criminals on both sides of the law..?

5 shot  dead in Penang

GEORGE TOWN:  Five men were shot dead during a police raid at an apartment in Sungai Nibong here at dawn today.

All five were ethnic Indians. Police claim they were members of a notorious secret society wanted for several murders and firearm offences.

In the incident which happened at about 4.30am, police shot dead the five in the unit at the 11th floor of an apartment, located near the Pesta Site.

The five were said to be involved in several fatal shootings that took place across the country.

My Rambling Thots:

Like  a  gang war on the streets of Penang . Armed criminals shooting and killing each other but criminals with badges?  That is a  scary thought..law enforcers and law breakers at war, and the casualty is – the LAW – that is supposed to be upheld by the PDRM – our men in blue- yet they risk getting labelled as criminals in the blue uniform.

For if the police act and behave like the criminal low lives who are capable of shooting and killing in cold blood, then there is no distinction on which side of the law they are on..And the respect, appreciation, honor and admiration for the police force or their role as law enforcers and that they risk their lives protecting the publics’ security and upholding the sanctity of the laws of the country risk being diminished  and dissolved if they are perceived to be  as vicious assasins executing criminals in trigger happy cold blooded whims , making them as vicious –  as brutal and as violent as the criminal elements they hunt down , having no regard nor respect to the sanctity of the laws which they swore to uphold , serve and protect..

And if it is so, then what is the difference between crooks and cops? Police need to always be on the moral high ground. Law enforcers cannot have a same mentality as that of law breakers.. policemen/ law enforcers cannot work along similar mindsets that vicious cold blooded criminals/law breakers   possess.

Criminals have no respect for the  laws of the land, which is precisely why and where the principles of law enforcement is needed to preserve the sanctity of the country’s law and order via the respected PDRM as the enforcers , but surely not in violation of  some of the laws the PDRM institution  seek to enforce along the way.. That will be like an exercise in futility and utter contempt of the country’s laws..

Many among the public  may probably feel the 5 guys deserved what they got because they are hardened criminals, so they deserved to die , put down like animals?
But horrors, if allegations of an execution are founded, that these 5  guys were indeed mercilessly gunned down ,
and that they were disarmed and neutralized but still got what they “deserved” –  “whacked” in cold blood and then had the “justification” for the gleeful trigger happy execution romp , planted?
Wonder if the public opinion will stay the same and that the  5 crooks still deserve what they got?

Who cares about the laws anyway?
Just shoot and kill them all wherever the criminals are found ,  legal or not , makes no difference ,  only then Malaysian streets and households and our wives and kids and families and friends will be much safer. Society at large will have more sense of security.  So , let’s allow  them  to be judge – jury and executioner. No need for even courts or prisons..! Even the laws will be made redundant..!

————-*———————-*——————*——————
There is such a fine line between what/who  is a criminal and a law abiding person . Although Lady justice may be blind she but has a very clear distinction between the two.

To her ,matters not  whether it be a VIP or uniformed cop or any ordinary common person – violate  the drafted laws  designed for the protection of society and public order and they are known as criminals.. It is that straightforward and simple !

Will bringing back detention without trial Preventive laws work?

All manner of draconian preventive detention, will not be so effective to curb crime and syndicates operating with impunity, ( even crime enterprises can be run by a masterminds within prison walls as has been know to happen) or hardcore criminals running loose despite very tough detention without trial laws.as long as there isn’t any will to tackle the malaise that corruption begets….guns , drugs , and looking the other way, all the scourges that money can buy….as long as there are takers, and pay offs ,criminal enterprises will only be too happy to obliged and they can make tons of illegal money again and again , and pay others to look the other way, never ending vicious repeating cycle, even if tough laws are reintroduced, it may just filter out the small frys and occasional sacrificial offering.
.Money politics and the vicious interlinked web of corruption that entangles the criminal , the enforcers and influential powerful figures although may prove difficult to completely dismantle ,doesn’t hurt to at least try..to make things less threatening..bringing down the security threat level few notches.
Like perhaps focus n introduce much tougher punitive laws on areas where abuses are done by those entrusted to upkeep the laws, or those who misuse their influential positions for nefarious means – as deterrent or reminder,that they risk losing all n still be severely dealt with if found to be abusing their positions for treacherous gain and they are deemed to be menacing or having a harmful effect to society.
