I think Lynas has been politicised.

Don’t worry as radiation is nothing. My buddy nkkhoo.com has justified it. Read to believe :

Don’t make statement like kids if you are considered an adult. Read a bit about rare earth and it impact to the surrounding. Do a little bit of homework for you younger generation or your children maybe. Be a little bit wise not less.

If Australia are not willing to have Lynas and have them dumped into our country, why are you so dumb as to accept garbage being dumped into your own back yard.

What radiation?
Do you know that the Potassium your doctor gives you for high blood pressure is 500 % more radioactive than the lynas waste product which has only 6 bq/g of radioactivity.
The potassium salt in our diet is highly radioactive with an activity of about 30 bq/g and we have to ingest at least 2 to 3 grams of this element every day to stay healthy!

The human body has 4,400 bq from Potassium_40 and another 3,000 bq from radioactive Carbon-14.
So sleeping next to your loved one is highly dangerous!

The problem is when AMMO and Barang Naik fast track the approval and implementation, PR might have a hard time cancelling Lynas and PR will then be accused of not fufilling their election promise.

On the other hand, if we had a Clean & Transparent Government – this project could have seen little protest from the Rakyat.
The problem is that the rakyat just can’t trust the Government to safe-guard the rakyat’s interest.
Chances are sub-standard systems will be put in place, and the Government closing both eyes to the abuse and rape of the environment.

More reasons to vote for Pakatan as Anwar shall cancel Lynas when Pakatan is in Putrajaya.

And PAS will also shut down Genting, Sports Toto, Magnum, All night clubs, all restaurants selling alcohol, welfare lotteries, etc.
Men and women will be separate in all the supermarkets.
More than a million Chinese and Indians (could) lose their jobs and source of income!
Welcome to the corruption free Malaysia Baru!
