Last year, I heard the tongues wagging that the PDRM has been allocated new "everything" - from Helmets, uniforms, boots, to weapons.
Of course the stories said that these were "contigency plans" - sort of preparation for the anticipated mauling of the BN.
Today, (after Bersih, Hindraf, the 12th GE, PR, RPK and DSAI),
Torrent hosts are shut down,
Streamyx is bogged down,
Aliran website attacked,
MT gets hacked after some controversial SDs,
DSAI files police report,
and Google alerts tell me that KLSE trading has been suspended.
Then, I read something interesting on Malaysian Insider .....
Latest on Altantuya case
P. Balasubramaniam, the private investigator hired by Razak Baginda to keep Altantuya away from him, has signed a statutory declaration which basically shows Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's alleged involvement in the case. He swears to seeing an SMS from Najib to Razak on the day he was arrested which said: "I am seeing IGP at 11am today… matter will be solved… be cool."
Anwar reveals sworn statement by Abdul Razak Baginda's private investigator P. Balasubramaniam, which basically shows Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's alleged involvement in the case. He swears to seeing an SMS from Najib to Razak on the day he was arrested which said: "I am seeing IGP at 11am today… matter will be solved… be cool."
Statutory declaration in full to come.----------------------------------------
"The men in blue jealously guarded their turf and the government felt that the sight of men in green fatigues with M16s on patrol duty on the streets of Kuala Lumpur would put the country on par with war-torn African states and unstable East European nations, and conjure up the image of a country under emergency.
This could change this week.Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said yesterday that the police and armed forces will be holding a joint public order exercise until Monday and the military will be called in to maintain public order if the security situation in Malaysia deteriorates."
- Malaysian Insider, Joint Police -Army exercise sparks emergency talk
Defence and Internal Security taking over the Govt of AAB?
An impending coup d'etat in UMNO Baru?
Although these reports may be considered as "alarmist" by some, the prospect of it happening is very real, given the history of the nation - especially when some people refuse to learn from it, and resort to cooking it.
Then again, one might want to consider this .....
The Anwar saga 2008
"Anwar declares war to save Malaysia"
Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul, who was also the emcee for the event, gave a slice of what was in store when he stepped up to the podium at 9pm.
"The drums of war have already sounded. This time, it's not their field but ours. We will tell the rakyat what really happened, who's really involved...things you won't read about in the local papers."
"There is no turning back...I will fight! I will fight morning, I will fight noon, I will fight evening, I will fight night! I will not stand for all this fitnah and such rotten things!" Anwar thundered.
"This is not a question of Anwar, but a question of saving Malaysia. The government mechanism should not be used to oppress the people...but to protect the interest of the people," he thundered when he entered the arena at 10pm.
And though he went on at length about a great many things, Anwar has got one thing right, if nothing else.
"The issue now is about national governance. Other issues...are mere distractions."
For Anwar, the cloak-and-dagger games are over.
Just familiarizing myself with the army & police insignias for now .....
