Hindi Movie Review: URI Surgical Strike 2019, Intense and Surgical

military uri surgical strike tactics movie hindi

I was very proud when I saw a Malaysian, well made Special Force movie called Paskal in 2018 and then in 2020, I watched URI: The Surgical Strike which showed that great Special Force movies can be produced outside Hollywood. I always had a soft spot for anything that is related to the military and especially on topics related to the Special Forces units within the military – I think I told this more than once in this blog.

Military 101: Royal Malaysian Air Force’s Reliable Transport Carriers

RMAF TUDM CN-235 Transport Military

The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) even converted some of the CN-235 transport planes into maritime patrol roles which says a lot about the capabilities of a modern, well-designed transportation aircraft. Image source: Wikipedia.

When it comes to the air force’s mainstream inventory, one would often fancy their latest lineup of the latest jet fighters and perhaps their heavily armed & armoured attack helicopters but no one talks about the workhorse of the air force, the transport carriers.

National Security 101: Rohingya’s Malaysian Gamble – Once In, Cannot Chase Them Out

Rohingya Refugee Boat Sea Intrusion

According to UNHCR, there are about 179,570 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia as of the end of May 2021.

In recent days, the world saw the interesting show of force from Israel’s Iron Dome air defence system against the Hamas’ rockets fired from Gaza. The question is whether this is a new concept or it is an evolution of an old aged air defence system that integrates air radars, fire control station and fast intercepting missile?

Water Pollution 2020: Why We Are Not Punishing Everyone For Water Disruptions?

water disruption

Seriously I have lost count but once again, someone had polluted the rivers that caused the water supply in Klang Valley to be disrupted again. And once again, the act of polluting the rivers seemed intentional and with little regards to the welfare of thousands of consumers.

National Security 2020: Pondering Why Rohingyas Are Hated In Myanmar – Part 1 of 4

Rohingya Refugee Countries

Rohingya refugee crisis is a well known global crisis and other than Bangladesh who presently bears the majority of the refugees, others including Malaysia have taken them in and provided safe haven until the situation in Myanmar improves.
