(Those) with their billions should read this: Hannibal Gaddafi’s UKP300million ship was left unfinished when his father was overthrown….It would have had marble columns, statues, luxury fittings and gold-framed mirrors. The ship would have also boasted of marble floors, panoramic glass lifts with virtual waterfalls, and glass walkways over the shark aquarium. Hannibal reportedly had 6 deadly sharks…..3 of the ex- Dictator’s sons have been killed and 1 held awaiting ICC trial. Mubarak and his 2 billionaire sons Alaa & Gamal are in Tora jail, so is the super tycoon Ahmed Ezz and a bunch of other Mubarak-era mega-businessmen

In a democratic country, this man would be arrested and tried for treason, (his administration) undermining and destroying the Nation through: a) Apartheid & racism. b) Deception of the public with controlled media and rigged elections. c) Weakening almost all institutions of governance including the legislature, judiciary, police, ACC/MACC, the Election Commission, and the Attorney-General’s Chambers. d) Mis-management, manipulation and corruption causing losses in hundreds of billions of RM$. If convicted all stolen assets to be returned … It is appalling these people behave like heros, saints and kings without the slightest remorse or sense of shame. His sons are directors of 200 companies and drive some of the most expensive cars in the world, eg the Ferrari Enzo & the RM5.5million Bugatti Veyron…Am writing from a truly transparent and democratic country, NZ.

Why not indeed? especially when the constitution places the majority and their religion in a postion that they are inextricably linked to each others interest.That the Chinese use ace as they always have to stir the pot is not a matter woth comenting on? Malaysia is based on racial divisions we created believing these to be in our long term interest. When we now see how we have failed ourselves in that miscalculation and we blame the Malays.

The Chinese will not only be defeated in the next general elecitons but they will run the argument the elections were not free and fair (except in the seast they win like in the 4 states where th opposition acitng as their fronts rule).

What else can be do except this ? Yet Islam preaches forgiveness is not to be preached but also to be seen to forgive by all muslims, but is the … the shenanigan Mahathir, … a true muslim ? If he is why is he never seen to have forgiven the successor of his own choice AB ? Never a period since he cancelled and abandoned the many white elephants he tried to build… Whatever is or are the reasons for the shenanigan’s out burst for all these while, he cannot be a good muslim … to have harbored the hatred all these while….

Please just consider these are the words of a senile old man.
If he is not senile,then probably he is scared that once Pakatan Rakyat took over,he will be finished and living in hell!
