THE MARK OF A TRUE STATESMAN?

Very 'enlightening' indeed to read about the 'confessions' of Dr. Mahathir...

And very interesting to observe mousedeers caught in the crossfire, scrambling to grasp at straws while pleading for 'ceasefire' and 'stability'...

Growled the man on the present prime minister...

"I chose him and expected a degree of gratefulness. But I was told I had been involved in mega projects and had finished the (government's) money.'

Elections? We have elections in Malaysia, you say??

And 'conceding he had made mistakes in supporting people who later stabbed him in the back, he said: "I have a habit of choosing the wrong people".'

This?? After warming his butt on the throne for 22 years?

On the shelving of his pet projects, he sneered...

'The government claims it has no money to continue. That is why they stopped so many projects in Putrajaya. They have stopped the mosque, the monorail has been shelved. My contention is the government has lots of money and Putrajaya is built largely with Petronas funds. Petronas made a profit of RM50 billion last year and this year RM80 billion. Petronas has a lot of money. Petronas can build if you want them to.'

There!!! Ungratefulness... backstabbing... and if you may, plundering the nation's coffers to build dubious projects...

For 22 years, we had nothing short of a dictator... now; we have what many would consider a weakling...

Still, we have jesters on our payroll reminding us, 'Malaysia Boleh'...

Hmmmm... simply marvelous...
