“The intent is to "confuse, confound and harass the enemy" to the point that as many troops and resources as possible will be wasted on finding POWs instead of being used on the front line.”
The above is a caption from the 1963 movie “The Great Escape” with the late Steve Mcqueen in the lead role.
With the latest caper in the news today, the exposed video of alleged DSAI having sex with a Chinese prostitute seem to have a plot taken out from the movie.
Picture this scenario:-
The video was revealed on 21 March 2011 at the same time the Sarawak parliament is dissolved to make way for the polling date fixed on the 16 April.
The video was never shown to anyone else except for the few journalists specially invited at a very private screening in Seri Carcosa under very stringent security.
The sex video will be used in the campaigning by the ruling government without failed to gain maximum support.
The trio will not surrender the video to even the police or any other authorities. Instead they demanded a RCI to be set up to verity the authenticity of the video if indeed DSAI is the man in it.
Setting up a RCI will most likely take a week to complete and another 1-2 weeks, minimum, before any findings are concluded. By then, the Sarawak election would be over.
It is not surprise that such a detail and meticulous planning are carried with no intended finale are laid out to divert the attention and gain the utmost damage to the opposition and can be used at a time where it will only serve it’s secondary purpose but not the main agenda.
Considering the snail pace of our government processes and the manner it will be handle, this issue will most likely drag itself beyond the Sarawak election date for whatever outcome it may derived.
