UNIFL already included Asian, Muslim troops

PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was quoted by the New Straits Times yesterday as saying: "We want Asian nations like Malaysia and Brunei to be given the chance to play their respective role in Lebanon. This must be done fast". As a matter of fact, there are already non-European troops from, for example, Asian and Muslim-majority countries that really matter such as China, India, Indonesia and Turkey in the United Nations' Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFL).

After telling the whole world that Malaysia should arm Hezbullah, our people now have the audacity to gatecrash in wanting to take part in the peacekeeping mission in Lebanon. Puh...leeeez, save your breath. Just like anything else that is happening in this country, you made the bed, you lie on it.
