Lessons to be learnt from war

THE war is largely over, and this is good because it means the mass killings have stopped, or at least most of it. 

Although we are greeted by media reports of celebrating Iraqis, there is no hero in this war. 

There are only lessons to be learnt. Lessons about dictatorship, economic and military power, and the power of the media among others. 

The world must sit back and reflect on these recent events and continue to understand the undercurrents shaping world events. 

As for Malaysia and Malaysians, we must work harder to build a more resilient country that can withstand threats that come with our principled, strong anti-war stand.
