What should happen, happened!
I'm Saddam the president of Iraq! Who are you to put me on trial?
Wrong finger message!!
Flamboyant and notorious president Hugo Chavez of Venezuela had been a pain in the ass to the US. He claimed to have himself cured of cancer by Cuban doctors. He unabashedly wanted to be the president for life but his congress turned him down.
Follow the death of Muammar Gaddafi, those leaders of the nations that held no election to keep their governance intact were scared the shit out of them.
China, North Korea and were some of them. Countries that held election but did not accept the general election verdict when they lost miserably, Burma/Myanmar was the one; that was in 1990. It is one gentle, splendid country to have a despotic leadership. The nations that held GE every few years but their citizens were strong supporters of the incumbent governments: Cuba Singapore, Russia, and Venezuela etc. Sometimes elections held there were considered a farce ( Iran excluded as the PAP administration tries very hard to show the world that democracy is very much valued in their small island state)). The president of Venezuela Hugo Chavez unashamedly asked his electorate to declare him life-time president but was turned down. He won the presidency anyway, a post he held since 1999. Nations like The Philippines, Singapore Thailand, and , the citizens’ votes could swing both ways so the leaders are actually praying very hard. Fortunately these nations’ peoples are very God-fearing; they choose their presidents and prime ministers who are charismatic and influential, not their political allegiance. Of course, political analysts may differ in opinions. Indonesia
The longest-reigning and the hardest-working monarch in the world King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand and the royal family are very much revered and loved by the Thai people. He is one king that is very concerned and compassionate about the welfare of his people. King Bhumibol, at 83, has been known as frail and ailing. He has been at his throne since 1950. In Thailand, anyone caught passing derogatory remark over the royal family faces jail term.
Too charming to be the PM? Yingluck Shinawatra remains a novice PM for Thailand, after all she is just a few months new at her job. Her opposition camps are accusing her for being unable to handle the flood crisis the nation faces in recent months.
Diligent Premier Wen JiaBao is a reformist but the effect of his effort yields little result as his People's Congress clings tightly to Mao's legacy and communism. Wen steers his huge and powerful nation into the thrust of a modern era with advanced technology and market economy. It is a slow and painful transition as China remains a grave abuser of democracy and human rights movements in the world. The country does not hold election to choose their leaders. All political posts at middle and upper levels are appointed. The lowest people's congress at district levels are largely powerless,
The Russian Comedy of Errors "As you like it" with Vladimir Putin took central stage. Putin was president between 2000 to 2008; he became prime minister till this date when Dmitry Medvedev took over the presidency. Now he had just got himself nominated as president again for next years onwards, and Medvedev would become PM.
Countries in the Middle East, and
- It doesn’t matter as their leaders are their kings and dictators who sing the tune to their delight as far as governing powers are concerned. With strong backing of military power and personnel of the Brunei US and NATO Forces, presidents in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and are very flimsy in their control of civil unrest and general administration. They did have their elections held, but those were always marred with endemic bomb blasts, assassinations, and other calamity. Sadly forerunner presidential candidate Benazir Bhutto was killed in a bomb attack in 2007 when she was the opposition leader. Iraq
The Greatest Lady of them all Aung San Suu Kyi's party won the general election of Burma in 1990 with 80% majority. Yet the stinking military regime refused to hand over power, instead they jailed her even before the election. For the next 20 yrs she was mostly confined to remain at her residence. She could have been able to do a lot for her impoversihed country but she lost her prime 20 yrs of freedom. During her imprisonment she was bestowed with 110 awards in recognition of her unyielding quest for democracy and human rights, including the coveted Nobel prize for peace. She was finally released on Nov 13th 2010.
Following developments in
Somalia, Algeria, Egypt, Libya (Now the Gaddafi regime had fallen), Iraq, and a very close to collapse , their government leaders are really nervous and wary about the Jasmine uprising movement (The Arab Spring). Syria China is really concerned and fears for a new revolution from its autonomous provinces of Tibet, Qinghai, Xingjian, Inner Mongolia, and other provinces with some minority ethnical groups. Such civil unrest (which had already occurred sporadically over few areas) will undoubtedly pose to throw the huge nation into disturbing turbulence, while the People’s Congress still clings to the power tightly. Meanwhile China remains steadfast to its claims that belongs to the mainland mother country; it is sheer dreamy egoistic and unrealistic. After 62 yrs, Taiwan Taiwan maintains its position as a renegade nation that never kowtow to its ‘Taikor’ (Big Brother) neighbor they used to address as mother . It takes less than three year to change a person’s mindset (let’s say one teenager’s); after more than half a century China Mainland’s regime could not possibly lure or convince Taiwan into “Mother’s arms” anymore to accept a totalitarian administration with no election held, whereby leaders of middle and top levels are appointed, not elected. Times have changed; now Taiwanese could kick out their president, cursing him and charging him, even jailing him; former president Chen Shui Bian 陈水扁;is now serving his time! China
It is very unfortunate that the president had an expensive and greedy wife.
Blind leader worship with many years of propaganda dragged this dreadful nation into famine, hunger and widespread poverty. Kim Il Sung as founder leader guided his closed and secretive country of oddities into totalitarian Stalinist rule that led to the miseries of all sorts for its people.
Kim Jong Il finally died of heart attack on December 19th 2011 and his youngest son Kim Jong Un took over the leadership)
Who gave you the authority to film me? Are you CIA?
After the demise of Sr Kim at 82, Kim Jong Il inherited the legacy of his father to lead the country into further suffering by developing nuclear weapons, whilst the North Korean mass remain hungry and poor. Still relishing their progress in nuclear weaponry, Kim went to his allies China and Russia for handouts but nowadays the two strong neighbours of North Korea were cautious about aiding the impoverished nation. They told Kim to be self-reliant instead.
The poor North Korean kids seen here were not sufficiently clothed. Guess they were hungry too;
while the leader of the country shamlessly boasted to have fed, clothed and housed their people well.
This young wretched woman died a painful death two days after this picture was taken, according to NorthKoreanRefugees.com. She managed to escape from her drudgery in Hyesan to Changbai-San in China but succumbed to her suffering, being gravely undernourished and without decent clothing. By looking at her frost bitten, large hands, she probably was a farmer.
So political leaders all over the world, Malaysia included, be nice, be very nice to the people, discard all rotten policies, silly rulings and impractical, out dated laws, and repent so that they may still retain some pride in their administration. For
, enough is enough. We could not go on testing the integrity and efficiency of the incumbent government whose performance had been below par. With corruptions rampant, nepotism and cronyism prevailed for public contractual works, bad accountability of public funds at various ministries, non-transparency for governmental policies, plus draconian laws that control media, information and communication, a change in the administration is so vital, imminent, and inevitable. A retired senior legal practitioner once lamented: “Yes, there were crimes committed in the public service, but there was no criminal. True, some were charged in courts of law, but till these days most are walking free due to lack of evidence.” Malaysia
I'm innocent. Don't you believe me? I've got accusing fingers pointing at me everyday!
With fools like this knave keeps talking about his race supremacy,how to realise racial harmony?
Is he talking about his Turkish roots?
This hooligan has some oratorial skill but all his contents are harping on incitement on Malay supremacy and racial issues.
You believe these police personnel could do a proper job in ensuring safety of citizens, able to safeguard their properties, and to maintain law and order?
Lots of Malaysians emulate the way of life of the Arabs blindly. Some tried to dress like Arabs, particularly when returning from Saudi, thus painting a ludicrous picture.
Racial harmony achieved with equal treatments
and opportunities of all kinds at all
Otherwise we'll become one 3rd or 4th world nation like this!
It is important to educate the electorate to be progressive and be more self-reliant. Many of them had been comfortable with the handouts and being spoon fed by the Barisan Nasional regime for so long that they became complacent. Some of them are undecided and are fence-sitter. They may swing their voting trend at the last moment. The leaders of the opposition political parties have lots of convincing to do, so as to tell them that the paradigm of change is the only way.
