Why Get Upset about "Licence to Kill"?

There is this article in malaysiakini about an uproar in Parliament over the phrase "Licence to Kill".

Now if someone has used this phrase to describe the deaths during the National Service program, I wonder if anyone would have complained.

But you will recall that a motion to debate the most recent death a few weeks ago was denied as the matter was deemed by the Speaker to not be of public interest.

That's the way Malaysians are - seldom concerned about issues unless it involves our own children. Do ministers send their children to benefit from the NS program?

If Big shots send their children to NS, would they miss the opportunity for the publicity ? Methinksnot.
