Zahid Hamidi Mesti Tunaikan Janji

Semalam saya telah bertemu dengan Menteri Pertahanan, YB Dato Zahid Hamidi bagi menyatakan rasa kesal saya terhadap ucapan beliau semasa meresmikan persidangan tahunan Persatuan Bekas Tentera Malaysia, Bahagian Negeri Sembilan yang diadakan pada 04 Okt 2009 di Dewan Orang Ramai Taman Tuanku Jaafar, Seremban.



Semasa berucap dimajlis tersebut, Zahid telah melakukan dua kesilapan besar dimana ucapan beliau bukan sahaja telah mengguris hati bekas-bekas pegawai kanan tentera tetapi juga bekas-bekas tentera dari kaum Cina dan India.



Yang nyatanya Zahid nampaknya seakan-akan menghidapi penyakit 'inferiority complex' dan

penyakit itu mungkin memerlukan masa yang agak lama untuk disembuhkan. Disamping itu Zahid juga perlu sentiasa mengamalkan konsep 1Malaysia dan mengurangkan semangat perkauman yang kelihatan begitu tebal didalam dirinya kerana kami didalam Angkatan Tentera tidak pernah dilatih sedemikian.



Namun, mujurlah didalam pertemuan itu meskipun Zahid yang bertegang urat untuk menegakkan benang basahnya, akhirnya telah bersetuju untuk meminta maaf diatas kesilapannya itu dan juga bersetuju untuk memperbetulkan keadaan itu didalam ucapannya yang akan datang. Dengan itu saya benar-benar berharap agar Zahid akan dengan ikhlasnya menunaikan janji beliau itu. Sekiranya tidak, mungkin saya terpaksa memanggil sidang media untuk memaksa beliau berbuat demikian.



Akhir kata saya juga berharap agar Zahid dengan segera dapat menghayati budaya ketenteraan agar pandai memilih topik yang sesuai dengan sesuatu forum dan bukan mengikut sesedap rasa sahaja. Jika itu dapat dilakukan oleh Zahid, saya percaya Zahid akan disayangi dan disegani oleh semua lapisan pangkat didalam Angkatan Tentera dan pesara saperti yang pernah di rasai oleh DS Najib.



Salam.

My dear Sir,

I don't know you have a blogsite Askar Melayu until yesterday. I went on reading your pieces and I must say that your have that peculiar insight to see things from very interesting perspective about politics the way not many people see it.

I found it very strange why your blog is a remote site no one seems to notice that you are actually brilliant star but a very distant star in the far universe. I am not trying to polish you by saying all your postings are very enlightening, but they are and with the style of your own class.

Well sir, probably you want to stay that way, away from the heavy toll of manning a busy blog.

Good day sir.

Col Roseli,

I am blogging from USA. I didn't know of your blogsite until someone from Steadyaku47 mentioned your adddress.

Looking at your academic and professional background, it makes sense for you to post your articles in English as I noticed most of your articles drew very few feedback traffic.

It's just a matter of communication strategy of attracting readers to view your articles.

Just as what HH of Steadyaku47 blog has done of late, his blog has registered exponential hits.

You need to take this to the next higher level of media communication strategy, unless of course you prefer to be in the low profile, but it would be a taste of talent.

Also comment feedback requirement is too cumbersome and makes viewers not to reply to your articles. Make it simple.

Thank you Evolutionarymystic.

What I am trying to do is to change the perception of the Malays particularly those within UMNO towards Malaysian politics. Since I am targeting the UMNO people, I think the using of Bahasa is more convenient to them as not many of them understand English including those in the Parliament and the DUN.

Salam.

Col Roseli Sir,

Certain PBTM members informed me what was exactly said by the Minister during his speech at PBTM Negeri Sembilan at its AGM on Sunday, 4 October.

I salute you for sticking your neck out to defend the senior ex-servicemen who were not there to defend themselves. Even if some of the retired generals were there I bet you they would not have done what you did.

The Minister was given the wrong end of the stick. I know some low mentality ex-LLPs had given the Minister the wrong impression of senior ex-servicemen and typical of a politician, he played to the gallery of ex-LLP at the meeting just to receive thunderous applause! The Minister had done a serious damage in his relationship with senior ex-servicemen.

The result of your meeting between the Minister and you had gone round like wild fire among most of the senior ex-servicemen and they have expressed their disappointment over what the Minister had said.

To me, the Minister had made a gross eror in making such a general statement over senior retired military officers, many of them whom I know would sit under the tree with ex-LLPs to share glasses of teh tarik.

Col Roseli Sir, your army training and leadership quality should help UMNO in moving in the right direction. However, I know UMNO would reject your leadership style because they would not feel safe with people like you around.

I too will wait for the Minister's next move to conduct the damage control.

Well done, Sir.

Dear saudara,
Coming from you, i am not surprised.
Well done.

Sdra Taming,

UMNO does not need people like us; so don't waste your precious time trying to rebuild UMNO. It's disgusting!!!

I'm not sure whether you know what I mean. But if you really want to know more about it, then you better join them!!!

Rgds.

Thanx Azudin.

They've to undergo a proper military training before they could think like one. Wearing the uniform 'honorarily' does not make them wiser.

Col Roseli said...
