We have been giving too much attention to Anwar that we forget there are bigger and far more serious matters to think about than one single person, regardless of his purported influence (which is a separate issue altogether). As things stand now, there are far too many local and international issues that need our serious attention. More importantly, the nation needs to move on.

Would the opposition have kept quiet if the judge had returned a guilty verdict? Did they keep quiet after the first sodomy trial? No, they took to the street. In this second trail, before the verdict, Anwar's supporters were up in arms, their knives drawn. They would have painted the town red and created more unrest if he was found guilty.
