Did we learn anything from Ops Lalang, after 20 years?
I doubt so.
It took 40 years for East Germany to bankrupt. More than 40 years for USSR to break up. And rebuilt are slow and painful.
Alas, Asia country are taking a special turn. China take 30 years to rebuild what we seen today after cultural revolution ended on 1976. Taiwan white fear rules end for 20 year (almost same time that Ops lalang take place).
Today, we see Malaysia problem start to surface to the water one by one. As what happens to bankrupt of many corrupted country, for people in the country that refuse to think the global village, perils is awaiting.
