I keep wondering whether this “must be destroyed” mantra is working. If it is, let’s hope it will be effective much faster than it was for its originator, Roman senator Cato the Elder, who had to wait for 29 years to see his “Carthage must be destroyed” curse come to fruition.
Whereas the next best chance for Malaysians to put an end to BN, the looming general election, is more like a mere 29 days away. But no worries. The well-known RAHMAN prophecy and the fact that it’s also BN’s unlucky 13th general election could prove more decisive than any “must be destroyed” or other mantra.
And even more encouraging is how hell-bent BN appears to be on engineering its own destruction. Still trotting out its tired old carrot-and-stick act, for example.
