There's a Chinese epic movie coming to KL. Entitled 'Red Cliff', it is said to be based on history and an ancient Chinese book 'Romance of The 3 Kingdoms'. I'll spare the details for I too have forgotten quite a bit about the story, but there's a part of it which somehow was brought to mind.

A minor king on the south-eastern province of mainland China, unable to raise sufficient troops to defend his kingdom from 3 major warring factions, challenged an advisor to one of the faction to a public debate. The advisor, Zhuge Liang (if memory serves me right), took up the challenge and engaged the minor king in the debate. The minor king lost, and died in a fit of anger.

Watching the debate between Anwar and Shaberi just now, I would liken Shaberi to the minor king. Only thing, Shaberi did not die. But if he were, then surely it would be due to shame rather than anger.

In a debate which was meant for the good of the people, Shaberi used the opportunity to attack Anwar. Somehow, you really cannot trust these Sarkas people. In a public meet a decade ago which featured Mahathir and al-Marhum Dato' Fadzil, the former used it to attack PAS instead of talking on the issue of Palestine. So it seems, Shaberi - a former '46 member - learned how to use public forums to debase Anwar instead of debating on the topic. And learned it he must have, from a man he too once opposed.

At one point of time, it was Shaberi who was comparing Malaysia to Venezuela and Iran and so on. Soon after, he contradicts himself by not wanting to do the same. And later contradicts himself yet again on the thing. Shaberi, you must be one hell of a confused minister.

But the part that made me almost puked when he said "Believe me, palalah has never taken anything that is not due to him". In fact, I think I did puke.

Shaberi, you are nothing but bull, just as the rest of your brothers in the cabinet and Sarkas. All of you are nothing but clowns. Sad thing is, no one is laughing.


Kerp (Ph.D) said...

this saberi fellow was only interested in taking a swipe at anwar than to try and solve the fuel price woes. he kept going astray with his rubbish.

pendek cerita la shah, he only cares what his bosses think of him than to find ways to lessen the rakyat's burden. its not a mtter of win or lose but fark him la, he should just resign fro being an idiot.

Salam kerpie,

Bro, he should resign from being a minister, but certainly not from being an idiot :)

Mior Azhar said...

I, for the life of me, could not even begin to understand what was he rambled on about? Really pathetic of him to be attacking DSAI on a personal level. But then again, why am I not surprised?

cakapaje said...

Salam Pak Mior,

You are not alone in not understanding the ramblings a bull with Mad Cow Disease. But you are right, somehow, no one is taken by surprise.

Letting the time pass me by said...

Yeah Shaberry seems to go astray all the time... Anwar also have some astray moment especially went being attack on personel ground..

overall it is a "good" debate...

Anyway, it is just something political... Will the oil price come down ?? I dont think so... Will Anwar become a PM... I also doubt it..

Only if the Government could listen and follow Anwar suggestions....

cakapaje said...


Without wanting to sound as though I'm defending Anwar, I honestly think anyone of us would go astray when personal attacks are made on a public debate such as last night.

Will the petrol price come down? No one really knows until it does.

Well Anwar become the PM? Again, no one really knows until he does or incapacitated. But he would certainly be preferable than the reigning PM, at least to me.

Thanks bro.

Salam Shah

Aahh... tha latest member known in the sarkas group trying to outperform but ended being fried alive. Looking forward for his resignation, if he is honest enough to honor it. But you never know, to him, it might be a victory and proud on the personal attacks he did on Anwar. Self denial, I guess... sigh

blackpurple @ jowopinter said...

Lain yang ditanya, lain pula dijawapnya. Huh!

jaflam said...

Salam Shah,
It was a mismatch all right and proven it needs more the just courage to be a hero. You need good brain or great minds maybe.

I guessed we will see if he keeps his words .... but then MSM said he did all right, maybe he will get promotion !!!

muteaudio said...

He mentioned that he was in Venezuela recently. I wonder what was he doing there? Maybe he went there to learn from their MSM on 'how to idolize the leader'. But then, he should've gone to North Korea instead. They're extremely good at it.

I think it was just a waste of tax -payers money.

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam ydiana,

Honour? The sarkas people? No, they don't know the meaning of that word. The Puppet Doraemon Ringgit Malaysia just proved it at noon when again, they rushed into Anwar's residence in bacalva like they were expecting a shootout.

No, these idiots only know how to dishonour.

cakapaje said...

Salam bp@jp,

Sebenarnya, si shaberi tu sendiri tak tahu atau tak faham soalan. Ye lah, dah dinamakan badut kan?

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Dato',

The mismatch was purposely arranged to avoid the shame of defeat to palalah and najis. Anwar, afterall, challenged the 2 and not the badut shaberi.

Oh yes, he will definitely get a promotion for disinformation services. But Allah s.w.t. is the greatest of planner.

cakapaje said...

Salam muteaudio,

You got that spot on bro...propoganda the communist way - hail our great leader who knows no shame!

Good morning citizens, from our unshameful clownish leaders! We are now again, the laughing stock of the world!

Kata Tak Nak said...

You have to pity Shabery. How the hell is he ever going to defend shit?

cakapaje said...

Salam Cikgu,

Yes, you are quite right there. Only the sarkas badut can do that.
