I hope they are not trying to BUY BACK the bloody engines.
If they do, then may I appeal them not to do so. We have enough bills to pay, we don't need another Sandiwara to spend another few hundred million or whatever just to buy back metal scrap.
Please do not repeat the MV Augusta - We said Proton fcuked up, you sold it for $1, and then the $1 turned into $100M.
Leave it lah.
If you are serious about recovering some loss for the nation, prosecute those who have stolen by the billions. Make them bankrupt ... That's is what we want. We'd send a SMS to Allah for every penny you recover from the thieves and rest assured we won't call you one if you do so .. We'd name you as Philanthropist instead. How's that?
Anyway, I just found out Anwar is a Hog, Najib is a Viper and you know? I am 99% sure Rosmah is a Phoenix without even checking her date of birth yet. I'd be surprised if she is not ... I am starting to compile something for my specialty column -- Divinely Speaking
Stolen jet engines found
The missing engines were discovered in Uruguay.
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 5 — Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail has tonight confirmed that the stolen F-5E engines have been located in Uruguay.
The attorney-general, in a statement, said the engines were discovered in the South American country following co-operation from the authorities there.
Expressing his gratitude over the assistance rendered by the Uruguayan officials in helping bring an end to the case of the stolen engines, Gani said that the two countries will continue to work closely to enable the return of the engines to Malaysia.
The two F-5E jet engines were stolen in 2007 and discovered missing one year later, before a police report was lodged.
RMAF Sergeant N. Tharmendran and company director Rajandran Prasad were charged early this month in connection with the theft.
Malaysia bought 14 F-5Es in 1974 and decommissioned them in 1999. One crashed in the Malacca Straits near Perak on May 31, 1995.
Only six of the jets remain operational after they came back to service in 2003.

Such huge strategic engine of a fighter jet could be stolen. Anything is possible in Malaysia and also negotiable in Malaysia.

Wonder how many hundred million us $ will be spent to bring the engines back after taking care of the pockets of relevant ' helpful' officials. Wonder if there is a mongolian connection to this too.

So, who's actually selling our national security documents to foreign governments? How much are they being paid? Which country is so keen to have our military secrets? Are they so concerned about the ability of our armed forces or are they looking at us as a threat?
I was not surprise when Defense Minister Zahid Hamid revealed this yesterday. Neither was I feeling alarm about it.
This has been the world security trend since the end of the Cold War. Mostly every developed and developing countries are watching each other, watch and being spied on. In Asean, there is already a kind of alert when Singapore failed to honor the concept of Zopfan (Zone of Peace, Free and Neutral) when the Republic became its first member to host the Israel Embassy.
Among Muslim countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, Singapore's behaviour has pushed suspicion up above the diplomatic general order, thus drawing scepticism from among other members.
But it was not Singapore as denied by Zahid. The said country is a bit further. He did not elaborate. Could it be China? I dont think so as Malaysia-China relation is at its best since Najib Tun Razak became the prime minister last April. He cemented it further during his visit to Beijing.
Which country could it be?
Those rascals - whether they are from the public or private sectors - must be apprehended and sent to jail for a long, long time. They are lucky for staying in Malaysia (if they are Malaysians). In many countries like China, Israel, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Cuba, Russia and North Korea, the penalty for such a crime is death penalty, before the firing squad, the gas chamber or by the gallow.
Why was I not surprised? Because I have seen people selling government blueprints to others. My only question is, where do we keep such documents like blueprints and security secret papers so that it wont fall to this kind of people?
No, I was also not alarmed because we are such a friendly nation. We dont habor any ill-feeling toward others and neither do we have any intention to conquer others. Our armed forces may be inferior as compared to some countries in the region but they are well trained for special purposes, especially in keeping the country safe from any subversive activities.
Back to what Zahid said, the people who earn living by selling our security information. Who could they be?
Let us be sensible here. Do you think this is the first time this is happening? Do you believe when someone tells you how many times to went to the toilet yesterday?
I am sure that such activity has been going on and on for decades. It could has started during the era of Parti Komunis Malaya. Yes, they laid down their weapons in the mid 1980s but some of their cadres (in my personal opinion) are still at the ideology.
While are now so busy preventing crimes and other unpleasant elements that may disrupt our peace and harmony, there are still people spinning such an ideology. Are we able to distinguish them?

Artikel di bawah adalah diambil dari blog ZainulFaqar. Saya difahamkan Zainulfaqar ada sewaktu Tok Guru memberikan ucapan perasmian kepada program Forum Kalimah 'Allah' di Kota Baru baru-baru ini.
BERNAMA pula melaporkan kononnya Tok Guru menyokong agenda Muzakarah. Apabila rahsia mereka pecah, BERNAMA menukar cerita mereka. Artikel asal mereka boleh baca di bawah sekali. Artikel baru mereka boleh baca di sini
Rupanya Tok Guru mahu UMNO mempunyai minda yang terbuka supaya boleh berdialog SECARA TERBUKA dalam isu-isu yang berkaitan dengan Islam.
Ini jauh dari bentuk MUZAKARAH/Perjumpaan dalam Gelap yang diadakan dengan Pak Lah dan UMNO oleh beberapa pimpinan PAS yang telah menipu ahli2 mereka.
Nik Aziz ajak berdialog, supaya Umno kembali pada Islam!
MENTERi Besar Kelantan, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat semalam menyuarakan niat supaya PAS dan Umno boleh berdialog atas kepentingan Islam, sebagaimana yang telah pun dilakukan dalam Forum Kalimah 'Allah' yang melibatkan tokoh-tokoh dari agama Islam, Kristian dan Buddha.
"Kalau boleh, majlis sebegini (dialog) dibuat antara PAS dan Umno," jelas beliau selepas merasmikan Majlis Penutup Seminar Pemikiran Islam Semasa, anjuran Tabung Amanah Tok Kenali dengan kerjasama Kerajaan Negeri Kelantan.
Beliau yang juga Mursyidul Am PAS mempersoal kewajaran tindakan Umno menentang perjuangan Islam yang dibawa PAS sejak 50 tahun yang lalu.
"5o tahun, Umno bertengkar dengan PAS, apa hasil? Umno menggunakan masa yang begitu banyak (dan) kepakaran (yang) begitu banyak (serta) kewangan yang begitu banyak (untuk) melawan gerakan Islam yang dibawa oleh PAS," jelas beliau di Pusat Tarbiah Islamiah Kelantan (PUTIK), Kota Bharu.
Ujarnya lagi, sejak PAS mengambil alih kerajaan negeri Kelantan, Umno acapkali mempersenda keupayaan PAS dalam membangunkan kerajaan negeri.
Pun begitu, sejak Pakatan Rakyat menguasai Kelantan, Kedah, Selangor, Perak (kemudiannya Umno 'kudeta) dan Pulau Pinang, menurut beliau, Umno tidak berupaya meneruskan pertengkaran dengan PAS menggunakan isu-isu 'pembangunan' seperti dua dekad sebelum ini.
"Masalah pembangunan, PAS buat juga. Sekarang ini pula, (pembangunan di) Pulau Pinang orang lain pula (iaitu Pakatan Rakyat dan DAP) pula (yang) buat, pembangunan negara tidak (dilakukan) Umno (semata-mata)," jelasnya.
"Jadi, tak ada sebab langsung PAS bertengkar dengan Umno (kerana) disebabkan (isu) pembangunan tidak semestinya Umno boleh buat (sebaliknya) sesiapa saja yang memegang (tampuk pemerintahan) negeri (maka) mereka buatlah (pembangunan)."
"Sekiranya (parti) komunis yang pegang Kelantan, maka Kominislah yang buat pembangunan,"
Beliau turut melahirkan harapan supaya para cendekiawan Islam di dalam Umno berfikir tentang tujuan dasar Islam yang diperjuangkan PAS.
"Jadi, tolong fikirlah (selama) 50 tahun Umno bertengkar dengan PAS (sedangkan) PAS ini dibuat (ditubuhkan) oleh alim ulamak Umno," jelasnya.
"Ulama' Umno (yang) tubuh Partubuhan Islam Se-Tanah Melayu (yang) kemudiannya (ditukar) Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS), jadi apa pentingnya Umno nak bertengkar dengan PAS sedangkan PAS bawa (dasar perjuangan) Islam."
Katanya lagi, orang Melayu tidak mengira kaum guru, peladang dan sebagainya pada tahun 1946 semuanya menyertai Umno, tetapi sebahagian daripada mereka kemudiannya meninggalkan Umno pada tahun 1952 kerana Umno tidak komited memperjuangkan Islam di tanah air.
"Jadi, tokoh-tokoh agama (dalam) Umno tolong fikir apa yang saya cakap ini," jelasnya.
Turut menyertai kenyataan media bersama-sama Nik Aziz, Ketua Pengarah akhbar mingguan The Herald yang juga panelis forum, Tuan Lawrence Andrew dan Cendekiawan Islam PKR selaku salah seorang pembentang kertas kerja, Dr. Mohd Nur Manuty.
Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, Forum Kalimah 'Allah' menampilkan Ahli Parlimen Machang Saifuddin Nasution selaku mpderator forum, Ketua Eksekutif Kolej Islam Antarabangsa Sultan Ismail Petra (KIAS) Dr. Johari Mat yang juga panelis mewakili agama Islam; serta Naib Presiden Malaysia Consultative Council Buddist, Christian, Sikh, Hindu and Tao (MCCBCSHT) Cawangan Kelantan Loo Choo Siang yang juga panelis mewakili agama Buddha. -END
Nota: Penulis sertakan rakaman penuh MP3 kenyataan Nik Aziz untuk dimuat turun supaya mana-mana pihak yang berniat memanipulasi niat ikhlas Nik Aziz demi kepentingan tertentu, boleh disangkal bersama. KEFAHAMAN ASAS PERUBAHAN!

The Malaysian Attorney General Abdul Gani Petail has in a statement today said the stolen jet engine has been found in Uruguay. He has expressed his gratitude to the South American authorities in bringing an end to the case of the stolen jet engines and further added that the two countries will continue to work closely to enable the return of the jet engine to Malaysia.
The Royal Military Airforce Sergeant and a company director has been charged early this month in connection with the theft.
The question remains for Malaysians of the cover up till today as the engines were stolen in 2007 and only made known 2 years later.Why the delay after two years and who are the other parties involved in the theft and sale of the engines as there must have been much more people involved as this is an international transaction. And were any monies discovered from the sale of the engines? As obviously there must have been some monetary transaction for the sale of the engines and the trail of money flow should have been detected and discovered in short in whose bank account are the money. And who are the buyers of the Jet engine or could it be the girls in the photographs as above.
The case has certainly not ended as implied by the Attorney General if the questions as stated above could not be fully answered.

OF course if you have the expertise and that attendant deviousness, everything can be staged. You just need some planning of course. But crucial to a successful staging of an event would be the purchase of a certain breed of accomplices who would for a price, sell their souls to the devil. NO, I got this wrong here…..selling your soul to the devil is just a figure of speech! The devil is not that cheap, and moreover what the hell does the devil in Hell needs money. Hell, combustion is free and eternal, so we are told, yes?
It is the devil incarnate, who walks amongst us…..the ones who will sell their father, mother, wives, sons and daughters and if the price is good, even their brothers an sisters for transitory gains equivalent to, I am told, a ponderous bout of ejaculation experienced after a period of forced abstinence. These would be the actors, stagehands easily available for a price to stage what the master-stager directs! And the master-stager has basketful of these willing accomplices amongst the fleas and lice that infest our police force, judiciary, election commission, macc, air force, even the registra of societies now, and of course the customs and immigration departments. Dang! Which government agencies can say that they have not participated in productions directed by the powers that be.
Here are some of our major mega productions:
Wasn't Sodomy 1 an international box-office hit? (The "irrelevant" judge was not able to receive his Oscar. No! His demise was not staged. His shelf-life just expired.) Of course DSAI staged his own black eyes, what!

Here is some oldies for your reference: -According to Dr. Rafick,
1. First of all, it is not a medical report. It is a doctor Out Patient notes. Going by the letterhead, it could have been PUSRAWI record but I cannot be sure because in the cause of my work I have never had the opportunity of seeing any similar documents from PUSRAWI. On the document, it shows that it was signed and the rubber stamp shows the name of Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid. He is a medical officer and probably has done some PR examination in his lifetime. Obviously, it would not be as frequent as a gastroenterologist would.
2. I am going to share with you on what was written on that piece of paper and why I feel RPK has stretched his imagination a bit too far. On the paper, it was written that the patient complains of Tenesmus of one-week duration. The word Tenesmus means difficulty or straining when passing motion. Usually patients do not come to clinics and say they have Tenesmus. They will say that they have not been able or having difficulty in passing motion. I wonder why the doctor uses the word Tenesmus. Whatever it is, the note indicates that the problem has been around for one week. The duration is important.
3. Among others it is also written that the patient did not observe any blood whenever passing out stools. I am no expert in handwriting but if one were to see, there are marked differences in the style and quality of writing after the sentence "not noticed any PR bleed". In my assessment the medical history is badly taken. It keeps repeating the same thing where it says about pain in the anus and not noticing blood in the stools. It was noted that the doctor wrote that the "patient was alleged assaulted by intruding a plastic item in anus" I could not make out what was written in the next line. The person who wrote this notes failed to document the date and time of the allege incident. This is important. In the medical world when doctor writes some thing happens one week ago may not necessary means that it actually happens 7 days ago. The date and time is important as it has an impact on the injury and potential wounds that has taken place.
4. On the following page of the medical notes some scribbles notes can be observed. Among others, that I can make out includes no pallor and no fever (opallor, o febrile). While it might be the style of writings of some doctors but most doctor put the null sign after the word and not before it (e.g. palloro) . This is the first time I saw a doctor writing putting the null sign before the word in my 20 years of being a doctor.
5. In the next paragraph, general examination shows that there was no pallor, he was comfortable and afebrile (no fever) . It was noted that a per rectal examination was done (P/R) and there was no active bleeding, no ulcer or pus seen, No injury seen, No tear seen.
RPK wrote that "The doctor's report (which can be viewed above) says that there is zero (0) skin tearing, zero (0) active bleeding, zero (0) traces of pus, etc., which basically means he can't be suffering from a pain in the anus as what he alleges." With much regret, I am in the opinion that RPK has jump the gun and made a far-reaching conclusion. His conclusions were unfair. It did not take into account the factor of time that has taken place. It has also not look at the issue of the mechanism of injury. I will deal with this in the later paragraph.
8. The doctor made the diagnosis TRO Assault (Sodomise). The short form TRO is a common terminology that is use by doctors, which means "To Rule Out" . What it means here is that, the doctor is in the opinion that the diagnosis of sodomy need to be rule out and not as what RPK has interpreted that it has been rule out. ( RPK says: The doctor's diagnosis is that he rules out or TRO (to rule out) assault (sodomised)). Again, RPK has jump the gun and made the wrong conclusion. RPK also mention that "In short: Mohd Saiful Bukhari Bin Azlan is not suffering any pain in the anus and neither was he assaulted or sodomised in the anus". Well RPK, I feel you have put words, which the doctor did not say.
9. Under the heading of "Rawatan", the person wrote "Advice to go to government hospital" and "(plan to do a police report)" RPK wrote "Saiful then said he would like to make a police report so Dr Mohamed Osman suggested he go for a second medical examination at a government hospital". I think there is a twist here. The writings did not say that the doctor advice him to go to hospital because he wants to make a police report but merely stating that the patient has indicated that he wants to make a police report.
10. Under the circumstances, it is quite clear that what the good person (doctor) have done is the right thing. He has advice the patient to go to the government hospital for a second opinion. This is a norm. I am sure he made that advice because, no private specialist or doctors wants to be involved with such a headache. This is a norm. Private hospitals tend to push death cases, potential medico legal cases to government hospital. They will not take it. The person action is justified.
11. RPK continues to narrate his writing in his usual fashion. I have a lot of respect for RPK and I know he has a large following. However, I think RPK should not have made such conclusion just to set the mind of the readers. In this case, especially when many readers would have jump to the conclusion on seeing the writings and the PUSRAWI medical notes. This is simply irresponsible. This would make people to lose their trust on you, RPK.
13. Please, allow me to interpret and explain what the person who wrote the notes has written. This is based on the 2-piece document that RPK published.
· This is a case of a male by the name of MSB with an IC No 850706015687. He went to see a doctor about one week after being alleged assaulted with a plastic object in his anus.
· There was no mention about the plastic object details like its length, width, thickness and hardness. If it was a small and soft plastic object and has been lubricated then, it is expected that a tear did not take place. If it is a big object like a proctoscope and adequately lubricated, there will be no tear. For a tear to take place, the object must have not been lubricated and probably of a decent size. If it is a small object, it must have been sharp and was done against the persons will. If the person is experience with anal sex, his action was voluntarily, then I do not expect any tear.
· The patient did not complain that he has seen any blood in the stools. This was confirms by the examination which shows that there was no tear or ulcer.
· The examination was very limited in value as it is only a PR and not a proctoscope. It is not even mention about the prostate size, the tension of the anal sphincter or colour of stools, which means that the doctor probably did not put his finger into the patient anus.
· In most likelihood, the doctor merely does an external anus examination, which will not show longitudinal mucosal anal tear if it was present. The fact that there was no complains of seeing blood means that there is no vascular tear. There was no infection and as such, there would be no pus.
14. In conclusion, I would like to say that RPK has misinterpreted the facts. He has also exaggerated the interpretation of the doctor writings. I think who ever has been advising him , has not given a fair opinion His writings have come to such a skewed conclusion and now his writings is being politicised. Overall, I think this medical note has not proved or disapprove anything.
Above are the medical notes that is extracted from Malaysia Today. It is placed here for your reading and analysis.

Malaysiakini informs us in its news article Revoke Nasir Safar's citizenship: Indian NGOs that: A group of Malaysian Indian NGOs led by Hindu Sangam Malaysia will initiate legal action against Nasir Safar, demanding that his citizenship be revoked.
Now, Nasir Safar might have been a racist in making outrageous bigoted comments in which he was alleged to say that '... Indians who came to Malaysia were beggers and Chinese women came to 'jual tubuh' (engage in flesh trade) ...'.
He deserves to be condemned, sued, charged under the Sedition Act and jailed, or even detained under the ISA.
But for Indian NGOs, especially Hindu Sangam, to demand that he be stripped of his citizenship is not only over the top but unbelievably stupid.
What if the government indeed strips Nasir Safar of his citizenship?
Won't that be a f* precedent, where the government CAN then on STRIP any Malaysian of HIS/HER CITIZENSHIP, because of a racist statement made, or for whatever it believes Malaysians ought to have their citizenships taken away?
Which community will be the most likely to lose if Hindu Sangam succeeds in opening the Citizenship Pandora Box?
While I can understand the average Indian in the street making such an emotionally dangerous statement, I cringe at and bemoan the reality that it had been Hindu Sangam who did it.
No Malaysian should ever fear having his or her citizenship ever taken away - it's his/her inviolable constitutional rights.
Idiots! Dumbos! Bodoh! How can you represent or speak for Indian Malaysians?

Goh Wei Liang wrote in his Blog A PIECE OF MY MIND that he sympathizes with the racist Nasir Safar and that we should all forgive and forget what he said about the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia. Maybe, Goh Wei Liang feels nothing about his grandmother being called a PROSTITUTE. Or maybe his grandmother is a virgin. The following is what Goh Wei Liang wrote in his Blog.
Like it or not, I do not agree with Barisan Nasional Youth's stand to push for ISA to be enforced on Datuk Nasir Safar's words.
He has duly resigned as the Special Officer of our PM and claim individual responsibility over his words. In no way is his stand reflective of our Prime Minister, UMNO or Barisan Nasional.
Why must Datuk Nasir Safar be arrested under ISA ? BN Youth must be clear that the Youth movement and the senior movement were among those who called for an ISA review.
If his words are deemed insensitive towards Malaysian unity and could contribute to instability, then allow the Police and Attorney General to prosecute him based on other Malaysian laws (if any).
Leave ISA out of this matter. He is just a Special Officer, not a Leader. His words carry no weight and BN politicians have unanimously condemned his remarks made in Malacca.
Having said this, the message by the Prime Minister's Department is clear.
None of us agree, acknowledge or condone to such insensitivity and utter disrespect to all communities who contributed to the nation's success - be it Malays, Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Iban, Kadazan, the Aborigines (Orang Asli), as well as other tribes and races.
The "get out now" message or "I am sorry, I claim responsibility and I quit" message is sufficient and let us move on.
We have kids to educate, hungry families to feed, a sleeping economy to develop, and a successful nation to build.

Tajuk: DUN Perak Bakal Dibubar? PR-BN Mula Gerakkan Jentera
Seandainya Mahkamah Persekutuan menyetujui penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan, maka Menteri Besar Barisan Nasional, Zambry Jamaluddin adalah Menteri Besar yang sah. Maka, Nizar Jamaluddin gagal memulihkan jawatannya sebagai Menteri Besar melalui saluran kehakiman yang lain. Sebaliknya, seandainya Mahkamah Persekutuan menolak penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan, Nizar Jamaluddin akan kembali menjadi Menteri Besar.....
Politik mula bergolak di negeri Perak berikutan desas-desus pembubaran Dewan Undangan Negeri sejak kebelakangan ini. Pada hakikatnya, khabar angin ini tersebar sejak rampasan kuasa pada 6 Februari 2009. Tetapi, pengalaman lalu yang berakhir dengan "satu lagi pembohongan", telah menghakis harapan orang ramai. Namun, kemungkinan khabar angin ini menjadi kenyataan amat tinggi untuk kali ini.
Mahkamah Persekutuan bakal mengumumkan penghakiman terhadap kes "Menteri Besar Perak yang sah" pada 9 Februari yang akan datang. Ini merupakan saluran terakhir Menteri Besar Pakatan Rakyat (PR) di Perak, Mohd. Nizar Jamaluddin untuk merayu melalui sistem kehakiman sejak dilucutkan dari jawatannya.
Seandainya Mahkamah Persekutuan menyetujui penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan, maka Menteri Besar Barisan Nasional, Zambry Jamaluddin adalah Menteri Besar yang sah. Maka, Nizar Jamaluddin gagal memulihkan jawatannya sebagai Menteri Besar melalui saluran kehakiman yang lain. Sebaliknya, seandainya Mahkamah Persekutuan menolak penghakiman Mahkamah Rayuan, Nizar Jamaluddin akan kembali menjadi Menteri Besar.
Menurut maklumat dari sumber PR, penghakiman oleh lima orang panel ini memihak kepada PR. Oleh itu, PR yakin bahawa mereka akan menang dalam perbicaraan ini, malah berjanji akan menghadap Sultan untuk memohon agar DUN dibubarkan.
Pengumuman langkah BN yang mesra rakyat
BN dikhabarkan tidak mempunyai keyakinan penuh untuk menang dalam kes ini. Lebih-lebih lagi BN dikatakan berniat untuk membubarkan DUN, tetapi menunggu saat-saat yang terbaik. Situasi ini menjurus kepada peningkatan kemungkinan pembubaran DUN.
Oleh kerana niatnya untuk memburu kesempatan terbaik agar mengembalikan sokongan rakyat, BN terpaksa mengakur kepada hasrat rakyat sejak rampasan kuasa. Selain pengumuman langkah-langkah yang "mesra rakyat", kerajaan BN sanggup memberi laluan dalam isu yang dibantah atau diperjuangkan oleh rakyatnya. Setidak-tidaknya, ini jarang berlaku semasa zaman pemerintahan kerajaan negeri BN dahulu.
Kebelakangan ini, pengumuman peruntukan dana, tanah menjadi lebih kerap daripada kerajaan negeri BN, malah memperlihatkan keberkesanan yang tinggi. Segala-gala ini merupakan cubaan untuk menawan hati rakyat.
Bukan itu sahaja, BN yang kini memegang kuasa untuk membubarkan DUN, mengambil sikap yang lain daripada dahulu, ketika berdepan dengan khabar pembubaran DUN kali ini. Ramai pemimpin memberi reaksi secara berasingan, bahawa "khabar angin ini diada-adakan oleh PR", "dakwaan yang menghina mahkamah". Bahkan, EXCO kerajaan negeri BN, Hamidah Osman mengadakan sidang media khas untuk memberi reaksi kepada khabar angin ini.
MCA bersungguh-sungguh mengembalikan kerusi
Satu lagi hujah mendakwa bahawa parti komponen BN mahu membubarkan DUN, tetapi tidak dipersetujui sesetengah pemimpin UMNO. Untuk MCA yang hanya tinggal dengan satu kerusi, Gerakan dan MIC yang tidak mendapat satu kerusi pun dalam PRU ke-12, menganggap hanya dengan pembubaran DUN, barulah mereka berpeluang untuk mendapatkan lebih kerusi.
Khabar angin di atas belum pasti kebenarannya. Yang pastinya, kedua-dua pihak BN dan PR telah mula menggerakkan jentera kempen untuk pilihan raya, sebagai persiapan seandainya PR diputuskan menang oleh Mahkamah Persekutuan, dan pembubaran DUN yang menyusul selepasnya.
Pemimpin BN peringkat pusat akan melawat ke Perak untuk menunjuk kekuatan, setiap kali khabar pembubaran DUN tersebar, terutamanya pemimpin MCA yang akan mengunjungi "kubu" mereka, menunjukkan kesungguhan untuk merampas kembali kerusi yang dimenangi PR dalam PRU ke-12.
Ahli Majlis PBT
Oleh kerana masih memegang kuasa kerajaan negeri, Mah Hang Soon yang memegang portfolio Kesihatan, Kerajaan Tempatan, Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Alam Sekitar, Pengangkutan Awam & Hal Ehwal Bukan Islam telah mengarahkan agar Ahli Majlis Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan (PBT) mengangkat sumpah jawatan sebelum 5 Februari. Ini mencungkil syak wasangka bahawa langkah ini sebagai persiapan terhadap penghakiman yang bakal diumumkan pada 9 Februari.
Pada tahun lalu, Ahli Majlis Perbandaran Taiping PR telah mengangkat sumpah jawatan sebelum rampasan kuasa pada 6 Februari. Jadi, BN terpaksa memeras otak untuk memaksa Ahli Majlis PBT meletak jawatan selepas itu. Walaupun mungkin ada yang menerima realiti bahawa "tukarnya pemimpin, maka tukarlah anak buahnya", namun tindakan BN kali ini tidak disenangi. BN telah dilihat merampas kerajaan negeri Perak dengan kuasanya di peringkat persekutuan. Paksaan mereka terhadap ahli majlis PBT PR mencerminkan imej gelojohnya mereka terhadap kuasa.
Setelah mengambil pengajaran daripada pengalaman yang lalu, BN kini lebih celik dengan menghabiskan upacara angkat sumpah jawatan di 15 majlis PBT, empat hari sebelum penghakiman diumumkan. Niatnya walaupun tersirat, tetapi disedari umum.

Bilangan kerusi dijangka tak banyak berbeza
Ceramah untuk mendedahkan selok belok rampasan kuasa telah bermula, sejak kerajaan PR ditumbangkan pada tahun lalu. ADUN PR telah membongkarkan penyelewengan BN di kawasan pengundian masing-masing, berjaya menyebarkan mesej bagaimana BN berkomplot untuk merampas kuasa.
Seandaianya DUN Perak dibubarkan dan pilihan raya diadakan, PR dijangka akan menghangatkan sentimen ketidakpuasan komuniti Cina, malah India terhadap BN dengan imej Nizar Jamaluddin yang baik di mata komuniti Cina. Namun demikian, dari kaca mata masyarakat Melayu, Nizar pula digambarkan sebagai pengkhianat Melayu dan boneka DAP. Ini mungkin kelemahan yang ada pada Nizar.
Tidak pelik seandainya Zambry meraih sokongan masyarakat Melayu dengan penguasaan sumber dan kerajinan beliau untuk turun ke kampung Melayu. Di masyarakat Cina pula, tidak kira berapa langkah yang memanfaatkan rakyat, beliau tetap dengan imejnya sebagai ketua rampasan kuasa BN. Beliau dijangka tidak disenangi pengundi Cina.
Namun, setelah tiga orang ADUN keluar dari PR, maka PR telah memiliki 28 kerusi seperti BN, dengan jumlahnya 59 (28vs28+3). Seandainya pemilihan semula mengekalkan perbezaan bilangan kerusi pada satu atau dua, dipercayai rampasan kuasa (peralihan kuasa) mungkin akan berlaku lagi. Ia mungkin tidak terhad kepada tarikh 8 Mac dan 6 Februari.

"During the course of Anwar's impending trial, Malaysians will be told of the link Saiful has with Mumtaz Jaafar. Malaysians will also be told who Mumtaz Jaafar is and what her 'special' links with Rosmah are.
Further to that, Malaysians will be told about the relationship between Najib's Special Officer, Khairul Anas, and Saiful — and the less than manly reputation these two buggers had while still in school.
Yes, the excitement and kinky sex that is going to spill over from this trial will cause Astro to lose a lot of business."

The recent racist remark by a top aide to the Prime Minister may be a signal that all is not well in the dominant party.
A general in the field, no matter how brilliant he is, cannot win battles on his own. He needs to depend on his staff to plan, his subordinates to execute his orders, and most importantly, his foot soldiers to fight his war the way he wants it.
He can be as brilliant as Rommel, deemed one of the best tacticians in the Second World War, but without the support from the people around him, he will never be able to execute his war plans .
A prime minister likewise cannot transform his ideas into actions without the support of his staff and his ministry officials at all levels.
The Prime Minister may be very sincere in wanting to transform the whole political landscape with his 1Malaysia idea, but without the support of the people around him and the cooperation of the civil service, it would be like a general leading an army of discontented and disagreeing soldiers, each wanting to fight his own way.. Worse, this army may have people bent on undermining the transformation plan. Maybe even a mutiny is possible.
The recent outbursts by this special officer, who is not new to politics, make us wonder whether there is any hidden agenda behind this.
This officer has been going round giving talks no less than 60 times over the past few months. Why the sudden indiscretion?
Any top leader knows that one of the worse things to happen to his image, other than perhaps a sex scandal, is that of his closest aide suddenly singing a different tune. It gives an impression that if people closest to the leader and would thus be relied on to execute the orders of the leader are not convinced of the 1Malaysia idea, how is this leader going to transform his ideas into action, and how is the whole transformation program going to work?
If there is resistance even at his sides, than it goes without saying that the resistance at party level would even be greater.
It is natural for any change to be resisted, since it is human nature to resist change. But if there are resistance even at the level where the people are supposed to be handpicked by you and supposed to have sworn loyalty to you, than something is really very very wrong. It is indeed more than just embarrassment.
It is either that this aide is truly against the idea of his boss, or it could signal something even more sinister – that perhaps below the calm water, there are strong undercurrents ready to do havoc. Either way, this is not a good sign.
It is bad to lead an army that does not agree with your plan and tactics; but it may be worse if the whole army , under the influence of certain ambitious colonels or retired generals , try to sabotage and perhaps stage a mutiny.
It is up to the general to stand firm and start weeding out those singing a different tunes. An army must have certain discipline; and the general must exercise disciplinary action without fear or favour in order to send a strong signal to those who are in disagreement.
Sometimes, in politics as well as in battles, you need to kill a chicken to warn the monkeys to toe the line.
