COMMENT | Najib, the man with the 'tainted touch'

COMMENT | Any hostile nation that is keen on invading Malaysia will not bother wasting millions of ringgits raining bombs and artillery on us. They’ll simply breeze in, isolate and surround strategic installations, before forcing our leaders to surrender, because they already know that we are extremely ill-prepared to defend ourselves.

If truth be told, both “Ketuanan Melayu” and the convicted felon, Najib Abdul Razak, are the main causes of the littoral combat ship (LCS) scandal.

It’s because of Ketuanan Melayu that the same senior political characters crop up each time there is a major scandal. Names like Najib, the world’s worst kleptocrat as labelled by the US Department of Justice; Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who befriends Malay triads like “Tiga Line”; and Hishammuddin Hussein, the kris wielder. They are power hungry, arrogant, and greedy.

These men indulge in a game of musical chairs and take turns to head select ministries, like the Defence Ministry. In this heavyweight ministry, the amount of money made from commissions is eye-watering. Why share it with others who do not form part of the Ketuanan inner circle?
