WHEN KILLING IS SO EASILY DONE

December 15, 2012

The toll on human loss, grief and pain is incalculable and indescribable. Yet the number of firearms used can be counted and named: 1 semi-automatic .223 Bushmaster + 1 Glock + 1 Sig Sauer = 3. So can the dead bodies: 20 very young children plus 1 principal + 1 psychologist + 4 others = […]

by KEE THUAN CHYE I’m surprised that even intelligent people are questioning whether Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is ready to govern at federal level.

The movie, which is the product of a scheme to hurt Muslim sensitivities and stir chaos, must be withdrawn and condemned by world leaders unequivocally. A line must be drawn between sacrilege and blasphemy […]
