|Who are you to say Kanang is not a Hero??|
|You call this a HERO? HERO of China-Dolls perhaps?|
Did Anwar spend his days in the jungles killing enemies of the country? No, he spent his days humping the china-doll.
Did he suffer few bullets for the country? Well, he might have shot few "bullets" to the china-doll.
Did he defend the country like how Kanang defend our country?
I guess Malaysian is intellectual enough to differentiate who is really sacrificing himself for the living hood of others, for the sake of our future generation.
