Street protests aren't gonna topple Abdullah Badawi just yet!

I refer to the recent BERSIH rally by concerned Malaysians which was marred by the teargassing and acid laced water cannon blasting by the FRU upon the rally goers near Masjid Jamek KL and SOGO last Saturday afternoon.

The reality facing us is that no amount of protests or rallies by the common public or even by the thousands of lawyers led by the Malaysian Bar Council have succeeded in dislodging or even bring about any dot of change to the BN run Government of Malaysia.

The leaders of the Malaysian Opposition and NGO's fail to take into consideration the consequences of any of the rally goers or demonstrators safety and likelihood of anyone of them getting grievously hurt or even fatally injured by the FRU and Special Branch of the PDRM!

The General Elections are just around the corner. Why are the Opposition in such a bloody hurry to hold these demonstrations?

Street protests have never been successful in this country.

Even if the Opposition manages to get a million Malaysians out protesting on the streets, without the backing of the Royal Malaysian Armed Forces, a coup will never materialize here in Bolehland!

You want to topple Abdullah Badawi and his BN regime through street protests, hoping for a result similar to what took place in Indonesia, the Philippines or Thailand?

Wishful thinking!

Malaysians have never proven themselves capable of such passionate standing ups for their rights or capable of staging a 'people's power' revolt against the ruling BN since the day this nation came into being, back in 1963.

Opposition leaders must take responsibility over the life's of all those who turned up on the streets of this nation and be held responsible for any loss of life or harm to their limbs and persons when the protesters get harmed as they did in the recent teargassing and acid water spraying by the security forces of the government.

I do not wish to see a recurrence of the shooting that took place in the Batu Burok tragedy that was also organized by the 'BERSIH' folks.

Let's go about changing the government in the proper manner which is in the General Elections.

Unless the Opposition is capable of garnering the total support of the Malaysian Armed Forces in toppling the BN, please stop the street protests for now!

Not even a whisker of any of the BN despots have been shed as a result by the recent protests!

Are you ready to see any of the Opposition supporters lie dead, sprawled on our streets as a result of being caught in the crossfire between armed FRU and Special Branch undercover police and be willing to take responsibility over each protester who is out there, just so that anyone of you gets to be in power?

We who are writing against Abdullah Badawi and his regime, want to see change...but to see it done in a gentlemanly manner.

Not having to resort to hooliganism and other forms of crude human behavior that tends to erupt when the FRU starts whacking the living daylights out of the roused public as a result of all the goading and manipulations of those who crave for power at the expense of innocent Malaysian public!

Ponder on it if you really care for Malaysians.

Another thing. Stop daydreaming that the Malay Royals will ever come to the defense of the Malaysian public.

They are contented with living a life free from wants and worries. You know it as well as I that this is the real deal as far as the Malay Sultans are concerned.

Wake up and reflect. Whilst the Malaysian public were being assaulted by tear gas and acid water cannons, the Royal concerned was enjoying an equestrian challenge elsewhere totally unaware that tens of thousands of his subjects were being whacked with teargas and acid laced baths!

So much for wearing yellow! You'd suffer the same even if you wore the colors of the rainbow!

Makes no bloody difference to the FRU! They are just following orders!

Dare to deny that?
