"Nampaknya bukan saja peristiwa Bukit Kepong sahaja yang ramai generasi kini terkeliru, terlupa, buat-buat lupa dan sebagainya. Malahan sejarah tahun 1993 pun ramai antara kita yang lupa.
Kita lupa bagaimana tentera kita khususnya Askar Melayu menjadi wira dunia, di mana askar Amerika dan Pakistan sendiri tidak seberani Askar Melayu kita dalam pertempuran di Somalia yang mengorbankan, Insya Allah as Syahid Koperal Mat Aznan.
Bukan setakat lupa, malahan pimpinan kita pun tidak bersuara lantang mempertahankan keperwiraan Askar Melayu apabila filem Holywood Blackhawk Down menafikan sama sekali keperwiraan askar kita.
Bukan setakat pemimpin negara, malahan dikatakan pemimpin tertinggi ATM pun tidak berani hendak membetulkan fakta sepertimana dalam ruangan komen dalam blog almarhum ayah saya di http://hjmalakan.blogspot.com/2009/09/sabung-nyawa-di-mogadishu.html
Rakyat Malaysia yang kedua syahid di Somalia insyaAllah, ialah Kolonel Rashid Musa.
Mengikut laporan di bawah jurukamera Bernama as Syahid Noramfaizul insyaAllah, telah ditembak oleh askar pengaman kesatuan Afrika AMIFOR.
Kepada orang kampung saya Khairy Jamaluddin, jangan sibuk nak pertahankan peristiwa Bukit Kepong saja, sila betulkan fakta keberanian Askar Melayu yang banyak dirahsiakan atau tidak dihebohkan seperti peristiwa di Kalabakan , Sabah. Kerana Rejimen Askar Melayu, salah seorang pengasasnya adalah dari Rembau.
Sila saksikan video klip Blackhawk Down versi Askar Melayu di http://waghih.blogspot.com/2011/09/dah-3-rakyat-kita-syahid-di-somalia_03.html

Ugandan peacekeepers from AMISOM ride in an APC as they patrol the streets of Mogadishu
MOGADISHU, Sept 3 — A Malaysian television cameraman was shot dead yesterday and another wounded by African peacekeepers in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, witnesses and a local aid worker hosting the journalists said. Muhideen Mohamed, who works with the Malaysian Putera 1 Malaysia Club charity, said the cameraman had been killed by peacekeepers from the AMISOM force who were patrolling the city that has been the centre of an Islamist insurgency.
“AMISOM killed a Malaysian journalist and injured another between the K4 road junction and Mogadishu airport on Friday,” Mohamed, the aid group’s local coordinator told Reuters.
Top Malaysian businessman murdered:
Prominent Malaysian businessman, Colonel Rashid Musa has been gunned down and killed during a botched kidnap attempt in south Moqdishu. The colonel was a partner in the Somali Telecommunication Service (STS), a joint venture between Malaysians and Somali businessmen. Musa first came to Somalia with the Malaysian military contingent deployed as part of UNOSOM in 1994-95. North Moqdishu warlord Ali Mahdi Mohamed confirmed the incident, sending a message of condolence to the government of Malaysia. Apart from this telecommunications venture, the Somali-Malaysian bank opened in Moqdishu in April last year and there has been talk of Malaysian technicians assisting in the re-opening of the port. Malaysian business interests are often closely linked with members of Hussein Aideed's faction. (IRIN, June 2; AFP, June 2; ION, June 6)

Malaysian factor in ‘Black Hawk Down’
KUALA LUMPUR: In the Hollywood action movie Black Hawk Down, there are only fleeting shots of Asians helping to rescue 75 US soldiers pinned down by militia fire in Mogadishu, Somalia. And that is not good enough for Brig-Jen (Rtd) Datuk Abdul Latif Ahmad. He wants the real story of what happened on Oct 3, 1993 told. He was the commander of the Malaysian contingent which was part of the UN peacekeeping force in the tumultuous African state.
