KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Defence has a habit of writing open letters to the PM since starting this website. This time around its for the PM-designate, YB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is set to take over the hot seat, soon.
We all know that many are not in favour of YB’s ascendancy to the premier’s post. There are even rumours of people organising an ad-hoc movement to block the swearing in ceremony, when ever and where ever it is to be held.
Since this website on defence, we will leave politics to the sideline. Unlike previous open letters, Malaysian Defence will not offer any advice to the Yang Berhormat Bakal PM.
As YB had been in the Cabinet for the last twenty years and most of it as the Minister of Defence, YB will probably forget much more on Malaysian defence than what I will ever claimed to know.
Therefore any advice on defence is elementary. YB probably will know more what ails the armed forces and national defence than any one else in the country. Therefore, I believe YB knows what is the best option for the nation and its armed forces. Whether or not YB will use that knowledge and foresight for the good, its entirely up to YB.
It must be said however, YB’s recent statements does not inspire any confidence that spring is in the air.
As for me, I can only say Fortes Adjuna Adjuvat, Najib! Otherwise, it will be the shortest tenure ever or even an unfulfilled one…
