A big black dog and two squirrels

A big black and ferocious dog was about to devour a small squirrel. The end was near for the poor squirrel.

Who would stand up against that dog? The squirrel's mother/friend/relative? Wouldn't the one trying to help be also devoured by the black dog?

What chance does the small squiggly squirrel have against the might of the ferocious black dog?

But the small one was not about to yield to the badness of the dog. He was not about to squirm on the tree in safety while looking at his friend/relative/baby being chewed up as dinner by the black dog.

No.

The small one was not wrapped in apathy, fear and total self-pity like some cry babies who whine and whine and whine but do nothing to protect their rights from being eroded. The small one was going to stand up and be counted. The small one was going to use whatever it has to fight. It was not going to sit idle looking at the dog devouring one of its own.

The small one was going to fight.

With one small leap the small one jumped. It landed on the dog's head and chewed its ear.

The big black dog was stunned. It never thought the small squiggly one would dare attack. It overestimated its might and power. And it underestimated the resolve of the small one.

The dog was helpless to do anything. The small one had attacked the dog at its most vulnerable area. The dog had no choice but to yield.

And watch the two small ones escape to safety.

The dog was humbled.

What is the moral of the story, Ladies and Gentlemen?

Push anything into a corner and you may regret the outcome.

If it was my black dog, a female Doberman-American pitbull cross, both squirrels would be history. Quite a number have been till none dare to trespass. As will be any other intruders in my backyard, including any uninvited human. Moral of the story? Replace the dog!

Black Dog is another name for Guiness with Old Chinese Uncles. Means you can't have your Black Dog and make it eat your 100 story cake.

I want to shoot point blank.I am referring to the big powers like the US and her allies trying to intimidate small country like IRAN.But they do not know exactly what Iran can do to retaliate in defence of their sovereignty.

The faster South Korea & the US DISMANTLE North Korea's military apparatus, the faster East Asia can be a counterweight to China economically, ... Japan, a unified Korea and South East Asia
How many more excuses do the South Koreans need to DECLARE WAR:
Bombing

On October 9, 1983, President Chun Doo-hwan was on an official visit to Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. During the visit, he planned to lay a wreath at the Martyr’s Mausoleum, to commemorate Aung San, who founded the independent Myanmar and was assassinated in 1947.[3] As some of the president’s staff began assembling at the mausoleum, one of three bombs concealed in the roof of the memorial exploded. The huge blast ripped through the crowd below, killing 21 people and wounding 46.[3] Among the dead were the Korean foreign minister, Lee Bum Suk, the economic planning minister and deputy prime minister, Suh Suk Joo, and the minister for commerce and industry, Kim Dong Whie.[citation needed] The rest of those killed were presidential advisers, journalists, and security officials, most of them South Korean; however, four Burmese nationals were also among the dead. President Chun was saved because his car had been delayed in traffic and was only minutes from arriving at the memorial. The bomb was reportedly detonated early because the presidential bugle which signalled Chun's arrival mistakenly rang out a few minutes ahead of schedule.[3]
[edit]Aftermath

Police identified three suspects, an army major and two captains. One was shot to death in a shootout two days after the bombing; suspect Kang Min-chul and the other attacker attempted to commit suicide by blowing themselves up with a hand grenade that same day, but survived, although Kang lost an arm. Kang confessed his mission and links to North Korea, an action by which he was able to avoid a death sentence and instead received life imprisonment. His colleague was executed by hanging.[3] North Korea denied any links to Kang, who was sent to a prison at Insein, north of Yangon.[2]

The squirrel is "HINDRAF". Not intimidated and fighting on. The black dog is UMNO.

Looks like most of them have turned into 'chickens'.

I don't know why others had to go all around the bush to get the moral of this story.

Basically, stand up for the ones you care. Do not fear the authority of another if it oppresses civilians and misuse its power.

STAND UP TO AUTHORITY.

aRT,If you are implying the squirrels are zaid ibrahim and the blogger Haris,you must be talking nuts....especially zaid....empty vessel makes most sound.Ask most of the ex bank staff of a famous bank(now and then). See what they have to say about him.

Let me guess.....mmmm...ok, "United we stand, divided we fall". Or maybe something more simpler like "Squirrels are smarter than dogs"
