I am not able to comment further or even talk about the incident because I guess everyone is well informed about the invasion/reclaiming in Sabah; started in Lahad Datu first. I have been following stories from the Philippine news source or Al Jazeera only as I find both sides of the media is political-focused fueled with propaganda of finger pointing between ruling and opposition parties. Furthermore, with the odd media blackout, whereby journalists are not allowed any closer to a certain spot that spurred assumptions; all I did was read and keep myself updated.
However, what I want to say about the incident in Sabah is that when it came to war, the first thing that comes is truth followed by humanity. I saw this quote somewhere before. But in this case for truth, they were the biggest idiots on both sides; showing their true colors. I am not talking about the military administration nor decisions etc. I am talking about the commenters on the Philippine website which made me upset is how the talks between Malaysians on their comment that the child who was shot dead was justifiable because he was in the red zone.
Have we forgotten our morale? That because of bloodsheds, we have become inhumane. Each life that is lost is regrettable but a child’s life? That is the biggest crime ever.
Also, on how some Malaysians are behaving through their comments in the Philippino’s news portal. You’d be your own judge, see for yourself.
