Ku Nan Reveals KL Hit List

On Sunday, Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor (or Ku Nan, as he is more popularly referred to) revealed that terror groups were targeting locations such as the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Bukit Bintang, Publika, Solaris, Hartamas, Bangsar and The Curve in Petaling Jaya, as reported by The New Sunday Times.
(Noted – but really, as far as I am concerned, the most dangerous criminal is the one ensconced in Putrajaya, if you understand what I mean. Since April 2009).  

Ku Nan (left) even said that Putrajaya would also consider deploying military assets to popular tourist and shopping zones to secure the locations if necessary.
Has Malaysia become unsafe? 
Still, Federal police corporate communications head Asmawati Ahmad had dismissed the Minister’s statement and clarified on the same day that police had never specified a list of potential targets – according to The Sun (p 01) on Monday.
In fact, the Inspector-General of Police, via a media statement on Friday, had stated that police would heighten security and surveillance in the city to ensure public safety.
This was in the light of intelligence reports that more than two hundred Malaysians and Indonesians have joined the Katibah Nusantara, the Malay-speaking arm of the Islamic State. One study said that this Malay terror group is likely to gain importance in IS's strategic goals of establishing a worldwide Caliphate. 
Given that police are already on high alert, what was Ku Nan's motive in wanting to scare Malaysians? He was all a-babble. He was fear-mongering. He was trying hard to induce panic. I say, the police should haul him in.
It just shows that this douchebag is an absolute ass! When information about 1MDB and suspicious donations should be disclosed, he and the other UMNO jerks stay silent. And when information related to national security should not be disclosed, he blabbed his mouth off.
Ku Nan is a real dope.
The EPL match between Liverpool and Manchester United on Sunday is best described as a snore fest. Even though the latter won 1-0, it was a boring, boring, boring game. And the Reds were a colossal disappointment. They should be lined up against the wall and shot.
I was at Globe Success Learning in 3rd Mile Square in KL’s Old Klang Road where I co-facilitated "The Power of Language" workshop  and this was after my MIMKL Toastmasters meeting on Saturday.

The said Toastmasters event was organized by Division J (well done, Jacy Wee!) and the lead facilitator was the very composed and credentialed Dr. Devi Menon. A really good session.
