Where is our right to protect ourself ? Guns !

Strict law in Malaysia, indeed.

But at the end it harm the citizen the most. I think.

Break-in robbery is not uncommon, in fact it happens everyday. Read the newspaper. It is known fact that we can not count on policemen to save us on time. They might good in aftermath investigation and cracking them down. But to stop the robbery, it is totally unreliable.

Of course, we have to understand that it is impossible for policemen to give complete coverage and lookout for every citizen. In fact, we have a shortage of policemen in our country. So, robbery will happen no matter what The mastermind / culprit will do their homework before taking action. That is why, we can't count on policemen to stop any attempted robbery in our current situation.

The question is, since everyone acknowledge the existence of this loop hole, what are we going to do to protect our family ? What choices do we have ?

The robber came in with various of motives. We will be glad if they just came in for money and items. But what if they want more than that ? If you know what I mean especially if your family have women. How if some of our family member with bad temper decide to use their fist to fight them off although we are strongly encouraged don't too ! 

Women get raped or molest by robber and men get chopped to death. Read the news.

What are we ready or plan to do if the robbers decided to visit our family one day ? Worst still, robbers nowadays come with guns and grenades. Our country is well known of its strict restriction on fire-arm. But still, robbers and gun-men could obtained their weapon easily.

Our law forbid anyone except policemen, military personnel and selected few people from owning any sort of firearm. The penalty of owning one of them is death sentence which I believe had reach the maximum strictness of one law can get.

Our law penalty is so strict it make everyone to think at least 10 times over before owning one of them illegally. But still, the robber and gangsters care a shit about that.

So now the badman got guns and bomb. But we citizen only have chairs and tables to defend our life and dignity. We can't count on policemen to arrive in time to stop them. We can't count on our neighbors to bring in stones and sandals to scare them off, so...

How are we plan to go through the hellish 10minutes to 1 hours of our worst nightmare in life?

Don't you think now is the time for Malaysia firearm act to be amended ? Just like USA, normal citizen could keep a small firearm in their house for self-protection.

I know everything have con and pro. But, why the double standard in Malaysia ? High profile people and rich man could own a firearm for self-protection, some even have the license to bring it out to public. The poor man like us could not. Is it mean that our life is cheaper than them ?

Statistic shows that robbery case happen more on ordinary household compare to the rich. Well it make sense to the max. The robbers are all looking for easy money. If break into unguarded middle income household is less riskier than breaking into some tycoon houses with 2 security guards armed with shotgun and knowing the fact that the house owner got a deadly automatic glock 17 with them, why take the risk ?

Is it not that our current law is helping the robbers to achieve piece of mind ? They knew we do not have guns. They knew our kitchen knife can't do a shit. And they knew the policemen would have at least 30 minutes respond time. Is it not that is much more easier to rob us than to rob a bank ?

Whether there is firearm act or not, those robbers care a shit. Their accumulated criminal record will end them up in jail for lifetime anyway, to hell with death penalty. How could they think correctly when their brain is already damage by drugs and estacy ?

I think, citizen should have the right to own a small firearm in house for protection till the day we do not need this kind of protection anymore. Literally mean that, until the day our policemen could ensure a very good crime control in our country, citizen should be allowed to protect themselves and not only rich man and politician.

Our life is very valuable too.

 Few years back, I attended a debate forum as audience. There was a debate whether USA should continue legalizing citizen to own firearm. So there was a debater which earn my respect and I really thrilled with her points. She said

" If you said, we do not need firearm to defend ourselves before there is police to do the job, then why we need fire extinguisher in our house if there is fireman to do the job ? Why we need first-aid kit if there is ambulance and hospital to do the job ?"

A mind blowing question bombard back to the opposition.

Random Thought : USA vs CHINA. Who will win the War ?

I love to read on others opinions. Regardless of whatever issues and I think it is a very fun thing to do. Today, a question sparked in my mind. If China and USA are going for a death-match warfare against each other starting tomorrow, who will be victorious ?

Alright, I know in war nobody actually win and in fact all shall be labeled loser. So, if we going to measure this 'victory', let say whoever surrender or their government collapse and taken over by opposition force, then the winner is decided.

My opinion is, the greatest war on earth in the future must be between USA and CHINA. It is a known secret that the biggest concern of USA is CHINA unknown military power. Fact told us that USA is known as the most powerful military force in the world. They are superior and advance in term of weapon technology and air and sea warfare. Well, USA had spent nearly a trillion almost every year on their military expenditure which justify the reason of their mind blowing debt.

USA is really strong on military power is a known fact. And CHINA got no issue with it despite they got massive army and people on their land. I think this is why USA is quite worry actually. Nobody really know the true strength of CHINA. World statistic show that CHINA only spend 1/8 on the military expenditure compare to USA. By right, USA  could worry less because with the amount CHINA invest, it will take 20 more years for them to at least catch up with current USA military technology advancement.

But still, USA was sending spy plane to check it out and there were several cases where it get shot down.Well, CHINA used to be a close-door economy country and just opened up few decade ago. If I was USA, I will not take it too serious in trusting the fact and figure provided by CHINA about their military expenditure.

So, back to the point. If war really breakout between this two superpower. Who will emerged victorious? Each of them got their unfair advantage.

The fastest way to end the war and decide the winner is by flexing their nuclear muscle at the beginning. In that case, after each country finish exchanging their nuclear warhead and I bet North Korea will happily fire few nuclear to USA too as gift to CHINA *chuckle*, whoever 'last man standing' will be declared a winner. Till then, I guess the president could only partying enjoying the victory moment on their flying plane or submarine some where far from their country because it will be too hot and radioactive to celebrate.

So I guess, both party will agree to ban nuclear warfare from the start and USA will most likely be the pioneer to suggest this rule. LOL, cause it will be no fun to play a Mexican-stand off  with CHINA after all the trillions were spent on his military power. And I bet their allies will all run scattered for life and heavily fortified their border leave alone joining USA or CHINA for this greatest war in history to come.

Location / geography advantage
Though USA is smaller than CHINA, but their base and troops are all spreaded all over the world. Which to say, even before the war broke out, CHINA is already surrounded by USA existing bases and military. I guess the only place that will leave the opening for CHINA is on its north border with RUSSIA. Since RUSSIA is not really friendly with USA, I guess there will be not much to none USA military base over there. Hence, CHINA massive troop forces are confined in their vast land compared to US troops which are a lot lesser but they are everywhere.

Weapon technology
This is one tough factor to judge as nobody really know CHINA real fire power. Technology wise, the whole world is super confident with USA technology. You will be amazed if you try to watch few episodes of 'Future Weapon' in discovery channel. Other opinion said that it will be nearly impossible for CHINA to get a foothold on USA soil. As USA is very advanced in sea and air warfare. Speaking of transportation wise, it is either by air or by sea to deliver the troops. CHINA might have the most massive and strongest ground force in the world, but if all the ships and war planes get wiped and debunked before reaching the soil, the number mean nothing. But it will be unfair advantage for CHINA defenses. Such a massive forces will dry out USA bullets and still the troop's flow seem no end to it. It going to be a nightmare to those marines who fight their way in from the CHINA shore.

USA going to have a biggest headache ever. As many NGOs and opposition party pressure will crack their head. War in Iraq had caused George W. Bush his presidency. If USA decide to have war with CHINA, they must be ready to fight externally and internally. What will be the better time for opposition to make noise if not now ? And expect a lot of street demonstration and rioting which might rise from various of issues like insane spending of military expenditure, human right issue, war crime and whatnot. For CHINA, good thing is, they are not democratic to begin with and their people is use to that. If CHINA wanted a war, I guess their people will pour in their support.

There are million of troops in CHINA even they have aliened themselves from any kind of war since long time ago. I believe if war happened, they could easily double and triple the amount. They have no problem conscripting their people compare to USA. What CHINA got is the number until a point that they have to set a rule to control their population. I bet they have no problem at all replenish their entire forces from scratch even if it get wipe off completely. USA will have problem with that. Intensive drafting their people into service will create internal havoc from the NGOs, Human right and whatnot. Not to mention USA population is only 1/6 of  CHINA.

America is the biggest consumer in the world and is also CHINA biggest importer of their goods. So when
the war broke out between them, I guess both will face massive losses. USA will short of supplies in term of  foods, minerals, raw resources and others, while CHINA will lost big chunk of income from USA. Not to mention that USA has outsourced a lot of manufacturing and production factories in CHINA land. I guess the factories will have to close down and further shorten US supplies. Of course, CHINA will face a little financial problem and issue of people losing their jobs. But I guess it is still not a deadly condition for CHINA as CHINA had experience to run their country in close-door policy for centuries. CHINA country can be self-sustainable due to their vast agriculture. That is a good thing about a CHINA which heavily rely on export economy. I will worry if I am USA.Because CHINA is their largest debter. USA rely heavily on CHINA loan to keep their economy running. But I guess CHINA must ready to bite the bullet to forget about the debt USA owe to them. So in summary, in case of war. CHINA will start concentrate heavily on their agriculture and farming in order to sustain the war. For USA, they got to look for loan and selling bond heavily out there in order to sustain their war. In long run, CHINA will have a better advantage. So, if I am USA, I will try to end the war quickly.

This is a great unfair advantage for USA. History had shown that USA have many close allies such as Britain, Canada, Europe and a lot more. In time of war, this pacts have made their commitment to assist each other. This will easily increase USA military might several folds. For CHINA, which is feared of their sear troops number, this might be a bad news as it cut out their advantage of having a super massive troops.
I guess if CHINA will have allies to join him, high chances it will be RUSSIA and North Korea. Though the number of allies are significantly smaller compare to USA, but their strength is no joke. RUSSIA for one, is formidable for its military equipments and the infamous TSAR Hidrogen Bomb. North Korea is known for their big military forces and insane loyalty of their troops. Quite a balance if you ask me. The winning factor is depend on whoever allies decide to pull out from the alliance first to cap their losses. I guess Britain and few other European country wouldn't stay too long on the cause if they are very good on the maths. When USA declare war on Iraq, the victory is already decided. It is just a matter of weeks or months until the regime collapse. USA allies can see that. So without much word, they were jump along the bandwagon to claim a piece for themselves. But against CHINA and Russia ? with unknown victory and incalculable expenditure of war ? I doubt they will stay long enough to see the end of it.  

Internal Sabotage
I grown up watching a lot of American movies like James Bond, Rambo, Navy Seal, CSI, CIA and tonnes of war gender movie. Which successfully tell the world that US have great spies and intelligent asset. I have no doubt if US finest spies and commando like in TEAM SEAL SIX will successfully create internal sabotage in CHINA military system. There is also a high chances for this group of elite to assassinate the important figures even in their protective own soil. Heck, if they could infiltrate Pakistan and assassinate OSAMA without the knowing of PAKISTAN government itself, they could do the same to CHINA too. Tougher but not impossible. However, rarely people talk about CHINA spies and intelligent asset capability. But it doesn't mean that they are any weaker. This is the mystery that feared by USA. So little information of CHINA military power. They might have elite even more skillful than TEAM SEAL SIX. If CHINA could produce the most skilled sport athletes in the world, they could do the same to their soldiers. 

Finally, it is still very hard for me to foresee a winner here. Both have their advantages. If only the war is like during the Mediterranean age where both side of army stand in line facing each other and taking turn in exchanging shots, then I guess the winner will be CHINA. But the current warfare now is more like distance bombing and delivering missiles which is USA specialty. In military law, whoever control the air will win the war. Cause air superiority is vital for various reason. First is protect the ground force to gain a foothold on soil and proceed further advancement, second is to protect their long range weapon which most likely stationed in one place like howitzer cannon, rocket trucks and BattleShip. And to fend off enemy invasion whether by sea or air.

For current situation, it seem USA have an upper hand on air superiority. But no one know if CHINA got a good counter measurement about this. Like North Korea, they are quite smart to figure out that they can't rely on submarine, warplane or battle ship to deliver the nuclear missile to America. It is impossible ! it will get sunk even before they could even spot America soil from far. That is why they only work on their long range missile all this while with latest rumor that their missile could reach Washington DC even launch from their capital Pyongyang. Wao, that will really chill OBAMA spine big time.

What is your opinion folks ?

Happy Mother Day

Happy Mother Day.

My mom is hitting 50 this year and my father going to see his 60 soon. Time flies and wait no one. So do our parents ages.

As a son or daughter, what have we done to repay their deed so far ? 

Is it enough ? If one day they had parted from us, would we cry with guilt in our heart because there are so much we want to do and give to them but at the end it never realize ?

Two sentences always lingered in my mind since I have heard it.

"Your success can wait, But your parent can't"
"Don't let your parent wait too long"

It is true that young adult like me at the age of 24 still have a long journey ahead. Peer of my ages, some start working while traveling oversea before their job would bind them, some still floating around few careers to see which job they hate the less. Some still chilling out at home hoping to strike a dream of their life-time job one day.

It is true also that we are young, and we could afford to waste few years or even 10 years.

But in life, how do you measure 'successful' ?

For me, the biggest success that I want to achieve in life, is to have my parents witness my successful. I believe, it is their biggest dream too before they expired.

So, I got to make a choice. Whether I would be successful at the age 50 and retired rich or be successful before 30 and retired rich. Either way, I would be successful. But the path is different.

My personality is very high on peaceful phlegmatic, so people with my temperament would automatically choose the 50 years plan as the life journey would be quite peaceful without much up and down.

But, I have chose the shortest plan. Because my parent do not have much time. If they go into their grave before I could bring them travel all around the world, I would be fucking hate myself. If I could not make my father a rich man and my mom body full of gold, I would also fucking hate myself.

My dream, is to achieve financial freedom before age of 30 and stop selling my time to the boss and give more time to accompany my parents.
