Rakyat should throw Opposition out for lying about defense

PKR Vice President and Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar lied to Jakarta based media Kompass on 5 August 2010 stating that the Royal Malaysian Navy submarines are defective and unable to dive. So are streams of Opposition Leaders in their intense daily campaign since July 2010 till present. Last week, again it was proven them wrong and they lied.

HRH Sultan of Selangor Tuanku Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Ibni Al Marhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah who is also the Honorary Captain-in-charge of the RMN was onboard Scorpene Perdana Class submarine KD Tun Razak off the coast of Sabah for a military exercise. Not only HRH dived again with the submarine (second time since the boat arrived from the Mediterranean July 2010), he also witness missiles fired and hitting the target.

KD Lekir fired an MM40 Exocet anti ship missile and Frigate F 30 KD Lekiu fired an anti aircraft missile Seawolf and hit the towed target.

We have not seen the Opposition apologize and retract their continuous baseless accusations against the Armed Forces, particularly the Royal Malaysian Navy. In the strategy of ‘Politics of Hatred’ via ‘Politics of Deception’, they are systematically painting the picture that the Government is overspending for the defense of realm but because of blatant corruption, the nation has been shortchanged for defective and inferior assets and products forced down their throats.

Recently, PJ Utara MP Tony Pua was shamed with his shallow analysis of the RMN’s intention of acquiring the LCS.

This and previous military exercises proven them wrong and continuously to be wrong. They are wronged by their own sinister agenda. The RMN is diligent in their duty to make sure their assets are on high operational status and continuously conduct and participate in various exercises, which include naval forces from friendly nations.

The fact is that, the Opposition did nothing for the defense of the realm. They never encouraged young Malaysians to join the service and never praise any of the service for anything good they did, even in combating pirates in the Arab Sea and Sulu Sea. Then again, the irresponsible Opposition Leaders still keep harping on the same drama with a slight tinge of presentation to justify their blatant lies manipulated in different forms and angles. All is pointing towards them as being unbecoming of elected representatives and Parliamentarians.

They should be reprimanded. They are shortchanging the rakyat who gave them the mandate.
