|Tourism Malaysia to promote special 'hostage'
|.In an innovative
move to boost tourism revenues, Tourism Malaysia will be promoting special
'hostage' holiday packages to Malaysia, where foreign visitors will be
able to enjoy the unique holiday experience of being kidnapped by bloodthirsty
terrorists, held captive in malaria-infested jungles, threatened with rape
and torture and ransomed for millions of dollars.
A spokesperson for the Tourism Ministry who refused to
be named said that the new promotion was inspired by the recent kidnapping
of three Malaysians by the Abu Sayaff terrorist group this month - just
months after 21 foreign and local hostages were kidnapped from Sipadan
island and held hostage in the Philippines.
"It's obvious that our police are utterly powerless
to stop these kidnappings," the spokesperson added. "They obviously
have better things to do such as breaking up Reformasi demonstrations,
beating up Anwar supporters and harassing the Opposition. So we might as
well make some money out of this kidnapping business - it is the ultimate
The package will include transfer from Malaysia via luxury
pirate boat, board and lodging in a five-star terrorist camp, as well as
knowledgeable, fully-armed, homicidal tour guides. Packages start from
US$1 million, which includes transfers, accommodation, meals and ransom.
Holiday loans are available from the Bank of Libya.
Malaysia Boleh! Arms heist demonstration
breaks world record
|Malaysia was yet again out on
the world map when the recent demonstration of how 15 robbers could load
stolen weapons and ammunition in the Grik arms heist was listed in the
Guinness Book of World Records. In the demonstration, soldiers took just
four minutes to load 97 M16 rifles, four GPMG machine guns, six LMG rifles,
five M206 grenade launchers, two Steyr rifles, 13 additional GPMG and LMG
rifles, 26 bayonets, 182 M16 magazines, one radio set, seven GPMG tripods
and over 13,000 rounds of ammunition into three Pajero four-wheel drive
The world record listing was for the most pathetic ever
attempt at making people believe a disbelieved government.

world record-beating event
|"It is truly amazing that a government has to go
to these outrageous lengths just to try to convince people that it is telling
the truth," said a Guinness spokesman who refused to be named. "It
must have taken many years of world record-beating lies, deceit and fraud
to achieve this level of cynicism."
Authorities will be organising another world record attempt
next year when the same amount of arms, ammunition and equipment will be
loaded into a single Kancil.
