Another Dr M's Absurdity

Years of living under Dr Mahathir's absurdity had created all sorts of ridiculous slogans, unrealistic grand visions, skewed social agenda and biased race supremacy.

Mahathir had tried to build a modern Malaysia based on petroleum dollar, race affirmative action, communitarian politics and authoritarian leadership. The outcome is obvious; Malaysia is a laggard.

Brains and funds have continued to flow out of the country. The current uproar on the use of 'Allah' by Christian bibles and publications is a prime example of the country's priority.

Race tensions remain high and extreme race organisations such as Perkasa and many others continue to jump on any opportunity to create a ruckus and to pressure the government to keep the wedge between Malay Bumiputera and non-Bumiputera wider.

Malaysia is not only losing its attractiveness as a FDI destination, losing its brains but also its prestige and allure as a successful and progressive multiracial nation. Partially, this is a result of a nascent and under developed civil society or a silent and non-responsive Middle Malaysia.

Yet Malaysia's losses, brains and funds, are treated casually by the present government whose policy direction and political model were largely moulded from the Mahathir era.

Mahathir's rule had the most significant impact on the attitude, mentality and approach of current Barisan/UMNO leadership and its followers.

It seems the grand old man of politics has created yet another absurdity by claiming that the 9/11 attacks in the United States, that killed nearly 3,000, was staged as an excuse to “mount attacks on the Muslim world”, saying killing as an excuse for war is not new to the US.

“In September 2001, the World Trade Centre was attacked allegedly by terrorists. I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,” said Dr Mahathir.

By equating the movie Avatar to the staging of 911 terrorist attacks on US has finally confirmed that Dr M's opinions are best left to keep him company in his old age than for mass consumption.

If Dr M has the evidence, he should have not have taken almost a decade to announce the conspiracy. As an ex-PM and a UMNO strongman, his latest allegations may create yet another round of illogical and unrealistic reactions from the community which may turn to sour the relationship between US-Malaysia.

We have had enough bad news with the use of 'Allah' row and do not need another controversy from Dr M.

In his twilight years, Dr M should focus on how to address the souring race and religious relations in the country. He should have advocated for a truly united, fair and just Malaysia.

Foremost, he should have taken more cognisance of his own legacy and try to salvage whatever positive contributions left so that the society can remember him more favourably.

Dr Khoo,

There is a proverb in the Bible that says not to answer a fool's folly lest we become a fool in doing so.

I wouldn't say TDM is a fool but the supply of foolish statements from him is perhaps more publicised given his status.

Bloggers should continue to put the pressure on the current PM and his government on how they will resolve the Allah crisis and the church attacks.

That is a challenge for these half-baked politicians and I am sure they are following the debate on the blogosphere to check the pulse and sentiment of the rakyat.

They have lost Round I - High court ruling and Round II - church burning as a result of political instigation and the government's unhappinness with the verdict.

Let's see what is in store for Round III because Round IV is clearly the change in global perception of Malaysia as wanting to be the most radical Islamic nation despite its multi-religious, ethnic reality. Capital flight and the sinking of 1Malaysia?

911 was staged by the Americans themselves????

I wonder whether is this OLD FOOL gonna say the PEPPER SPRAY ATTACK he deservingly got several years ago was staged by HIMSELF???

If yes, this OLD IDIOT should have used a GUN instead of PEPPER SPRAY. I reckon it's time for this OLD ARSE to "SHUT UP" or "BE DEAD".

I had and still have the same wish too since the shenanigan became the P.M. and I am sure there must be millions of them like me.

I agree with this oldman. I AGREE that he has caused malaysia much grief and suffering due to his policies. I too agree that he has made a mockery of all that is going on with the court of laws. I Too agree that he must be held accountable to all that he has done. I too agree that he needs to face his sins before he departs from earth; hopefully very soon.
i too agree the country is crumbling and in shambles because of his decades of politicking and decades of supression.
and finally i believe he is gonna have one FIRST CLASS ticket to downunder.

Actually, if we care to thnk about it, the Mad Hater is a most pitiful bugger. I say this because at his age when he is about to go meet the Lord who is going to judge him, instead of being filled with peace and goodwill, he is simply full of bitterness (not being in the driver's seat anymore while Lee Kuan Yew still is), hatred (for Jews, Indians and Chinese, etc) and full of shit.

TDM likes to make controversial statements to create confusion and discord among readers to gain cheap publicity.He is obsessed with this practice.Just yesterday, he mentioned that 500-700 full lorry loads of sand goes into Singapore daily! If you take 600 lorries and 10 mins of process time, it works out to 100hrs per day! Sampai Tua la.....

May God forgive them and TDM. May his wise daughter help him in his old age and advise him to relax and spend time, more time, with his grandchildren. TDM, please make life easier for all Malaysians, especially the Prime Minister. Thank you Tun.

some here called u as 'Dr. Khoo'. it means, either u are the real MBBS doctor who saves lives, or a doctorate degree holder.

either way, it means u are smart. and of course u blog in english, so u must be very pristine in english.

well, dr khoo, lets us read again what mahathir had wrote on that 9/11 'stage' again.

he mentioned about serious doubt, and specifically typed 'strong evidence'. he, the real deal Dr Mahathir, however DID NOT type A I believe 9/11 was staged' .. or any word that might point to him accusing the US to stage such horror incident.

let alone he has whatsoever evidence etc etc.

of course, u will not retract whatever u mention in your blog. because u are a very proud man. even tho it is very clear that you misquote him, nevermind u WILL not retract.

too bad ur bad feeling upon him has blinded u altogether. mentioning about what u felt 'police state' or 'non progressive country' or 'whatever it is, just confirm that u dont like that man.

regardless of what he had done.

that one (ur hatred feeling), no rocket science / phd degree to see its obvious.

I came upon your page as it was linked from another. As an American, I cannot tell you how disgusting it is to hear your former prime minister utter such hateful words - to even suggest that the events of 911 was staged by the American govt for sinister reasons. A cruel and bitter man like Mahathir would never understand how 911 brought tears to the entire US on the very day it happened, caused by some very hateful Arab terrorists who felt they were the chosen people to carry out a jihad against innocent men and women. An inhumane person like Mahathir would never understand how it feels to see your loved one leave home in the morning for work to never see them again, knowing that they were either crushed under tons of concrete or charred as a result of massive fires at the WTC. In the end, no matter what excuses Muslims want to give to justify the heinous acts by these Islamic jihadists, fact is, they did it for they were cold-blooded killers who felt their religion gave them the right to destroy others. They are no different than the Christian crusaders in the medieval era who killed and justified their murders in the name of Christianity. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it.

To call Mahathir's words as any other but hateful and despicable would be to justify the unjustifiable. Mahathir's comments about supporting the Holocaust shows how cruel and ignorant he is. The Holocaust was a demonstration of how cruel human beings can be to another fellow human being. It is a black mark against human civilization. Regardless of whether Mahathir personally likes Jews or not, the act of gassing and the attempt to annihilate an entire race is anything to view lightly. No matter what your race or nationality, the Holocaust is a chapter in human history that we should all be ashamed of - for those who carried it out, for those who allowed it to occur and for those who supported it and continue to support it like Mahathir.

haha! i must say who still doesn't believe 9/11 was staged was a complete ignorant fool.

Then again, I think people should at least have the decency to give the old man some respect. For all his failings, and for all his mistakes, you've got to give the man credit for what he's managed to do with Malaysia. His record is undeniable. Under his steward, Malaysia prospered. The man's not perfect and he's old. But 100 years from now, the only thing people will remember is how he transformed Malaysia. The same way how history remembers people. So call him senile, call him old man, call him "mental", joke about him, whatever, but give the man the respect he deserves. Don't go overboard. The man's been through more than most of us will ever experience. Not supporting or praising him, just trying to encourage some proper mannerism.

Let's be clear. He did not make an accusation. He merely expressed doubt over the incident. The man chose his words carefully (unlike some people leaving comments here). He is still sharp as a pin. Defo not nyanyuk !
And it's true, Hollywood tech is a master at the science of illusion. Also, if u research the Net on this topic, you'll find many Americans now believe 9/11 was a conspiracy. Pls be civil.

I agree with drMPower,12.47am.

Dr. M did not said it was staged (as claimed by the writer).

But Dr. M said "There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything"

I repeat: Dr. M did not said it was staged (as claimed by the writer).

Thus, this article is untrue and void.

If the writer (a Doctor) goes to COURT, he will lose.

A mad dog never stops barking but this mad dog even barks at his own shadow non stop.
He has to be the king of all mad dogs and every time when something is said about this mad dog one will find the postings are so numerous and bet he will surely be an easy winner as Malaysia most hated man in this part of the world.
He will doubtlessly win the title with his legs and two hands tie together.
Hw must also knows this and hence if he cannot be remembered for any good deed (if any) he might as well be remembered for the atrocities he committed in his life time. But don't worry he will always be remembered as the shenanigan of his time.
He is now trying to build a stronger bond with another mad man in Iran in order for him to
have a place to immigrate to continue their barking together .
This is not to mention that it takes a mad dog to recognise the barking of another mad dog.
That sure is a good sign that the end is near for him and the world and in particular Malaysia will be a better and peaceful place to live in. Good riddance !
Nature must have surely made a huge mistake in creating him or is it the mixture of his Indian and Malay blood that went horribly wrong.

Anon 9.03,
Do you talk modesty with prostitutes ?
For all the atrocities this shenanigan Mahathir has done, how can you be talking about giving him respect ? The projects he implemented during his time as P.M. were not for the progress of Malaysia but they were for his pocket, his family and his cronies. The bigger they were the more he gets and they too.
Just look at the amount of national funds over the 22 years he took as P.M. plus the 100 billions he took from Petronas. Half of that would have make any Malaysian P.M. looks much greater than him. You don't have to look far, just look across the causeway, when they have nothing absolutely nothing no oil, no plantations and what do they have now.
A first world country with hundreds of billions of reserve, investments world wide and above all recognised and tops in every field.
All these are achieved and developed even though the pariah had banned the export of sands and water to them by this shenanigan because he would look primitive and retarded when Malaysia is compared with Singapore simple as that. The shenanigan and his cronies may use all sorts of excuses in doing so, even to the point of asking them to squad, so that Malaysia will look taller in the eyes of the world. But is Malaysia a first world or really taller with this pariah as P.M. for 22 years ?
The answer is a big NO ! He must be indicted for all the atrocities he has committed ! How could he justify to have the civil service filled with 95% of Malay when the Malay, that is if the figures of the last census are true and accurate and not made up by him and his cronies, is 60% ( just to justify his illusion that they were and the many atrocities he committed in the name of Malays )
of the country's population.
Even if they were true why then the non Malay population not reflected in the civil service ? Aren't the non Malays the citizens of Malaysia ? Is the kind of former P.M. to be respected or even be remembered ? You have to be one of his cronies if you think so ! I could write a whole book about the atrocities the shenanigan committed ! Last but not least how come his multi millionaire son not known for any particular skill or profession become a multi millionaire ? Also why is he, who is known to have a major heart problem, going to London , a major transit point to most parts of the world, every year without fail, when he advocates all Malaysians to look east ?

George Soros said that 'Mahathir is a danger to Malaysia'. Mahathir's current statement sound ridiculous to most people. Just because he make some correct decisions in the past does not mean that he is right all the time. Is he saying that Bush and Osama are buddys. Crazy idea. However, calling our ex-PM by crude and vulgar names is also a reflection of the character of the person who use those words so freely. The world is laughing at all Malaysian. We can gain our respect by controlling our emotioms.

There is a saying in Chinese 'Be remembered for your good deeds for a thousand years' but 'Be remembered for ten thousand for your bad deeds'. Pariah Mahathir must know these by now, he wants to be remembered for ten thousand years, that is if he can, that is why in his dying days he is trying so hard to achieve that.
Please remembered the sins you committed will be paid for your descendants. Is that why your multi millionaire son is trying to have his descendants become Chinese ?

If Dr.M can come out with this concortion, I suspect he was also capable of staging several heart bypasses to get sympathy of the Malaysian public who is in his mind calpable of believing anything he says.
The man has done much to undo what he has done to build the image of Malaysia internationally. In the eyes of the world, they will be wondering how we can elect such a man to be Prime Minister of Malaysia. It must be to do with our IQ.
