the hard part is to abandon any current understanding, in order to accept what we are reading about. Firtly, abandon all your current thoughts. Now, listen... why malaysia and sulu fighting? because of a piece of land call sabah. Long time ago, sabah is in the state of sulu empire. After they have defeated in war, their land had been saperated by the colonial, for political reason. Now sabah is in malaysia. How can the sulu, after so many years unpresent in sabah, suddenly come to sabah, to claim their land? what is the reason. immagine, your great grand father, built Taj Mahal. You are not in India for so many generations. Now Taj Mahal is occupied by somebody. suddently you come to taj mahal and asked the new owner to go out, because you wanted to stay inside? is this logic? So, sulu can't claim on sabah... please. Even now, sultan sulu is the citizen of filipine. in any county in this world, king is the ruler, people who stayed inside the country is concider the citizen of the king. sulu wanted to claim back sabah, is funny.

Thanks for your comment Jolabu. I think you also interested in this problem. As I wrote in this article, I want everyone to look back what happened in the past. Everyone has their own right to know the truth.
Conflict that happen at this time must be solve by both of side. So, this conflict doesn't become worst. We can't look just from one side, it makes us blind. Both of Kesultanan Sulu and Malaysia need the third party to help them. The third party should know clearly the source of problem and the important thing is they aren't ignore the truth. Thank you.
