Lately we hear Malaysians talking about toppling the government and we think, wow, so brave one. But then you read about this British dude (pic above) and his friend who killed a man on a busy street and beheaded him because he was a British soldier and this dude and his equally crazy buddy wanted to topple their Government.
When people get carried away, they do stupid, crazy things. And then we call them barbarians and their act "cowardly". Britain and the US, of course, view the attackers as "Muslims" but I see them as what they must be: British citizens. Already, there is a crackdown in the UK as the authorities arrest Muslims at their homes and around mosques. The profiling would begin. In the US, following the Boston Marathon bombing, the authorities have gunned down suspects. The latest was a so-called suspect tied to the alleged bombers, shot dead by the FBI during questioning.
We are fortunate that the Malaysians who threaten/promise to topple the Government by sheer force and violence have not gone totally mental or have been arrested before they could do something really stupid and crazy. Since the general election on May 5, after Anwar Ibrahim made it clear that he was going to fight the people's will and wish to return Najib Razak's BN to government, several individuals have been nabbed, from bloggers Papagomo and King Jason to two elected reps and several outspoken political mules, including a 24-year old student activist.
