Mahathir Strikes Back at UMNO's Apple Polishers!

If there is one thing that I respect Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad is his willingness to do things that many shy away from like giving back to his detractors exactly or much more than what is thrown at him?

This is one Malaysian whom you do not mess with without arming yourself with the right defenses.

He is like the proverbial pit bull who will chew you up and spit you out like a crunched piece of bone!

Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad today has proven that although he is no longer the Prime Minister of this nation, he is still as powerful in his presence in the nation's political theatre.

Datuk Shahrir Samad. (present Malaysian Minister for Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs)

Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad still has it in him to make folks like Abdullah Badawi, Najib Tun Razak, Musa Hitam, Shahrir Samad and all others who are still in UMNO lose sleep over his recent actions and political maneuvers.

Tun Musa Hitam (former Malaysian Deputy PM and the one who gave the orders leading to the Massacre in Memali, Mukim Baling, Kedah Darul Aman) Musa Hitam was the Acting Prime Minister then and he ordered 200 policemen to attack the villagers who were supporters of As Syahid Ustaz Ibrahim Mahmood @ Ibrahim Libya. Read here to refresh your memories.

Did anyone ever suspect that Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad, the founder of UMNO Baru will quit in the manner and style that he did recently?

Did Abdullah Badawi ever imagine that Tun Mahathir will come after him as what he has done after handing over power to him in the first place?

Did Najib ever dream that he will no longer enjoy Mahathir's seal of approval to replace blundering Badawi as the country's future Prime Minister?

Mahathir bin Mohamad never ceases to amaze us with his twists and turns in his ever dramatic political career and the nation awaits to see what he is going to conjure up next to terrify the ones in the UMNO Supreme Council?

We have heard of the Star Wars trilogy ' The Empire Strikes Back'. Now we see the old fighter in the nation's most influential political juggernaut @ Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad strike back in a fashion that we have never ever seen him do so at his enemies and faultfinders!

Read here at Tun Dr.Mahathir's blog to see Mahathir sock it to Musa Hitam and Shahrir Samad who have sniped at Mahathir over his decision to quit the very party @ UMNO Baru which he himself set up after the original UMNO was unregistered by the Registrar of Societies back in 1987!

UMNO Baru only came into being when it was registered on Feb 1988 and today it's founder Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad, the former longest serving Malaysian Premier is out of the party that he founded.

As expected, UMNO's political bigwigs who would kiss his hand and grovel at his feet (metaphorically speaking) have now rediscovered their balls to attack and smash their former President due to their very nature of being first class apple polishers and loyal supporters of whoever is warming the Prime Minister's seat at Putrajaya!

The kind of politics you see in UMNO is the type that makes many good people shun away from getting involved in all the ass kissing, backstabbing, libeling, twisting and turning of principles that can be bought according to the numbers of zeros that adorn whatever cheques that passes hands or bank orders that come with the type of support that one garners or is willing to sell for a price, of course?

Not all Malays in UMNO are corrupt but the ones who are at the top almost always reek and stink of unsavory political tricks and actions that brings disrepute to the very party that is said to be the main pillar of the current ruling BN coalition running this nation's Federal Government of Malaysia.

Let's see what else unfolds in this continuing saga of I say this and you say that?

On a personal basis, yours truly underwent a similar episode recently that has yet to be settled.

Must be something in the air we breathe, eh?

UMNO's twist and turn politics sure permeate the very life's of Malaysians, no matter who or what we are or claim to be?


May Allah save us all!

Lets see to what extent Mahathir goes to destroy his " beloved " UMNO and his " beloved " Malays !!

If he really has guts and has lots of secrets about others he should come out for an open debate with

1. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
2. Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

OR if he has no guts to debate then he should offer himself for the post of UMNO President and Prime Minister of Malaysia and go for elections to see if he indeed has the support of the masses.

Dont go for elections after silencing and jailing your opponents on absurd grounds.

Mahathir must be cursing the Malays of Kg Baru for not running amok on the streets on Chow Kit killing chinese and indians. Or else it would have been easier to bring down the PM like he did in 1969.

Sorry Mahathir, Malays are more intelligent now and not as emotional as before.

When he announced his retirement, he cried like a baby lost his moma in the woods. Rafidah cried like moma lost his son in the supermarket.
Now he leaves UMNO with a cynical smile in his face. It seems like the pain is moving out from the body.... yes the thorn is moving out from the flesh without applying any cure....

No Balls ?

No balls is when you are afraid someone is gonna challenge you so you blind fold him and ask ur IGP to punch him.

No balls is when you put your challenger is jail and then ask for party members to be loyal to the party and not the leader as leaders come and go.

No balls is when you do something wrong and cant face the consequences so you screw your country;s judiciary to suit yourself.

and selfishness is when you screw your deputy and embaress him to the world at the expense of destroying Malay unity, the Malay party and most of all the name of our country Malaysia.

Now you tell me, who has no balls and who has balls of steel..

My goodness ! When is all this going to stop ?? I can feel that our nation is now moving in the reverse gear...I foresee many problems that our country will be facing in the near future...not only in the political arena but also economic and social. The leaders now are fighting instead of steering our nation to greater heights.

If only “chedet” retire gracefully and quietly like other old folks to enjoy their twilight years how relief we are after suffering 22 years of discrimination, but instead he chooses to create storm after storm putting all of us in despair. It is like being in a nightmare which we can’t wake up from.

From the looks of it, Mahathir is not going to be silent or fade away into the sunset as many people wish him to?

More fireworks are in store.

Just brace yourselves and watch the show!

Malaysian melodrama at its best! :P

Malaysia political drama. Currently hogging our newspaper front page. It is hard to choose between a dictator and a nepotism leader.

When we normal people bitching here and there, seeking for truth or honesty, we won't get anything. They just turn their deaf ear to us. Just a lot of saliva lost in a process.

Now, we just let the top retired *** and the top government *** fight against each other.

When it is time for us to involve, we ensure that we vote the right people or blog about it.

Right Mahaguru?
