kat sini lagi menarik untuk dibaca, nak paste kat blog macam panjang sangat la pulak.
satu perkara yang menarik perhatian aku pasal kes terrorist attack kat mumbai ni ialah, beberapa orang menteri kat india tu resigned a few days after the attack. maybe diorang rasa bersalah kot sebab tak dapat jalankan tanggungjawab diorang untuk jaga keselamatan rakyat dan keamanan negara. cuba kalau berlaku kat mesia, nak ke orang2 kat atas tu turun. paksa la cemana pun, tunjuk la apa pun kemusnahan yang diorang dah sebabkan, gerenti tamau turun nye lah diorang2 tu. pastu lagi mau kata, "itu rakyat la yang salah sebab pilih orang lain untuk memerintah dan mewakili rakyat. cuba kalau pilih kami, sure tak jadi macam ni punye lah!" huh! ni kata2 orang yang egonya tinggi kat langit nun. skali tu jatuh macam humpty dumpty, baru diorang tau!!! geram ni, gerammmmm.....
