Malaysia military reserve[edit]

Unless someone can justify and prove that the official malaysia's military reserves is 640,000. The official malaysia military reserves should be 41,600, according to wikipedia rejimen askar wataniah. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.42.255.254 (talk) 05:35, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Malaysia not first country to have purchased warplanes from both east and west[edit]

I removed the sentence: "Malaysia was also the first country in the world to have purchased warplanes from both sides of the cold war, when she also acquired MiG-29N Fulcrum from the Russia"

It is factually incorrect, during the Cold War, Finland operated both western and soviet aircraft --2006-02-12 14:22:52 86.41.205.66

Conscription[edit]

Does it exist in Malaysia? If yes, shouldn't it be mentioned? --84.129.248.163 15:51, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Conscription currently does not exist in Malaysia. The National Service programme, although under the purview of the Ministry of Defence, is not a military programme and "draftees are not soldiers, and instead participate in a wide range of exercises aimed at encouraging physical fitness, discipline, and service to the country". Provision exists in legislation for the drafting of citizens into the armed forces but this has not been invoked since the early 1970s. -- Bob K 10:07, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Annual Defense Budget[edit]

Based on a local defence magazine, Malaysia defense budget for the year 2006 is USD 3.08 billion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryan darknight (talkcontribs) 07:14, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Chinese desciption?[edit]

I felt it is no appropriate to add Chinese description to the headlines. Although Chinese language do play an important role in Malaysia, but Bahasa Malaysia (Malaysia Language) is the official language for the Malaysian. If no one else have any comment on it, I will delete these Chinese words. ChowHui (talk) 22:47, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

It has been proposed that Malaysian Military Scandals be merged into Military of Malaysia as the Scandal article is clearly a POV Fork. Pl note, Wikipedia does not encourage POV Forks. ▒ Wirεłεşş ▒ Fidεłitұ ▒ Ćłâşş ▒ Θnε ▒ ―Œ ♣Łεâvε Ξ мεşşâgε♣ 21:22, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't see any need to merge the two articles together seeing that the amount of information in for Malaysian Military Scandals warrants a whole topic on its own. In the long term it will continue to grow and will unbalance the Military of Malaysia article. Roman888 (talk) 13:15, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm indifferent to the issue. We'll remove the merge tag as no consensus or participation in discussions from any other editor has taken place. ▒ Wirεłεşş ▒ Fidεłitұ ▒ Ćłâşş ▒ Θnε ▒ ―Œ ♣Łεâvε Ξ мεşşâgε♣ 10:19, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
OKAY! we have to merge this now! woot! how does one merge? if you post some guidelines and examples then I will do the heavy work! andyzweb (talk) 04:04, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
I have already completed the merger and move the bulk of information of the Malaysian Military Scandals to this article as per the discussion here - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Malaysian Military Scandals. I still have misgivings on the issue, as the information regarding the military scandals will continue to grow in the long-term and unbalanced the main articles like I mentioned before.

  • A bit more detail to this notice. The entire section of "Scandals" has been identified as (good faith) copyright violation/plagiarism due to widespread word-for-word lifting or close paraphrasing of the cited sources. Accordingly, the material has been deleted. --Mkativerata (talk) 04:33, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I have started to reinstate some of the material with a bit of rewritten pieces. I totally disagree with the actions you have taken in deleting the material wholesale. You can take note of the changes which I have made to the articles and I suggest you can make extra changes if necessary. Roman888 (talk) 16:28, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Copyrighted content was restored to this article, for instance from this source. Accordingly, it has been reverted to the last verifiably clean. The content may completely rewritten, but must not be restored again. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:00, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I am new here but shouldn't we be working on the article and improving it, instead of deleting all that content arbitrarily. If a violation has been made we should correct and make sure that the rules have been adhered to. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.134.213.4 (talk) 03:43, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Please see my reply on your talk page. For any editors reviewing this, material deleted from this page because of copyright violations must not be restored. If any editor wants to correct the material to clean it of copyright violations, do so first (eg offline) before restoring it to the article. --Mkativerata (talk) 04:02, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

% of GDP[edit]

The info box says that the % is 0.9 while the List of countries by military expenditure page says it is 2%. So which one is right? -175.136.120.126 (talk) 05:00, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/ec725/
    Triggered by \bairforce-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist
