The floating sub

So, we’re told that the first and expensive submarine that Malaysia just bought can’t dive — something that is obviously atypical of a submarine.

But not to worry. Defence Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had assured us that “We have a warranty on the sub and we are confident the builders can fix it.”

We certainly hope that the problem can be licked in due time so that the sub can eventually go places where even the devil dares not tread or swim.

Indeed, the sea bordering our nation needs to be patrolled and its defence reinforced — especially in the wake of some missing jet engines.

See here for the entire story of the sub that refuses to dive.
