Back on the road again

JB, Saturday 10 Feb 2007. It's been nearly three months since Dr M's last roadshow. Lots happened since: the US$8-million Cobra Sultan, his stay at IJN, the RM200-million "leased" plane, the plantation merger, the media merger, the lawsuits against bloggers, the second Monsoon Cup, the floods, the Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

Based on how he did at this week's Peace Conference, I say Dr M is back in his element.
Which means someone is going to lose sleep.

Go here to listen to the Language of Resistance.

    back on the road indeed :)

    some shameless self-promotion here, but if anyone's interested on some critical analysis on both the TDM-Abdullah spat, as well as the two men themselves, there's a new book on the market.

    Stop by and have a look, it's got some great high-profile contributors :) Thanks!

  2. Mahathir kata Melayu Mudah Lupa. He is proven correct! Remember Anwar, global Express, Perwaja, Proton, etc

  3. I wonder, where is pak shahril?

    oh yesss...dr M is back! its high time that that someone wakes up anyway and too bad nightmare's awaiting..

  5. TDM needs challenges in life to live longer.Since high hopes to be the UN Sec.Gen just faded away when he was not even norminated..he had to pick a punching bag.
    Cannot win...had mild stroke out of frustrations.
    Tried new letter to all....did not work. Then put out ONLY at MT blog..did not work. So new nice to ALL blog owners to get attentions.
    Was he that nice to all of you when he was PM? LIKE the CHINESE SAY...."KNOW YOU ALL LIKE MOUSES" But nevermind are news and TDM sure know how to create something from nothing.
    At 82 years old...he must be considered in the Guiness Book Of Records...the oldest most troublesome PM in the world.

    Bro Ahirudin,
    Glad to see him back! Malaysia really needs people like Tun. Badly! Something must be done quickly for our future generations or else Malaysia is not going anywhere.

    To Yang Berbahagia Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad, please help our Malaysia, the one and only.

    the book is bloody brilliant! People shoud read and digest it! Thank you for sharing.

    rocky brother,

    someone will continue to sleep. but many others around this someone will be losing sleep. which means they will be trippin' and trippin' again and again, and then do what they do best -- screw up.
    if they screw things up for themselves, tht's so fine by me.
    big problem is, they screw up the country, on the sleeping beauty's behalf.

    tdm was attacked and lynched by us bloggers and websites during reformasi in the name of promoting anwarism. we printed out everything on the net and blogs, went to the kampungs and distributed them. we mobilised public opinion to bring tdm down. we succeeded, though not completely. it was thank to tdm that we succeeded, actually. some of us look back and wondered why the old man did not haul us up, crack down on us, sue us. he let us have our day. he was, in effect, "very nice" to us.
    today, we are decent to him. some of us still attack him and lynch him. some of us are fair to him. some outright support him. whatever we do, we know that he was decent to us, fair to us.
    basically, he laboured to promote our existence then. and today he is reaping the fruits of his labour, i suppose. not completely, but he's succeeded.

    dear old blogger,
    you sid ``we mobilised public opinion to bring tdm down. we succeeded ...''
    you guys brought panglima Maha besar down? u got to b kidding!!
    Get real, Mahadhir left on his on free will... that is a fact. No one could remove him, least of all armchair critics from cyberspace who spin out bile from the safety and comfort of their bedrooms.
    The impact by bloggers was minimal as common sense will indicate because of the low internet penetration in the country. That was why he didn't go after the bloggers. I was there, I know.
    Mahadhir's mission now is to bring AAB down and is using all the dirty tricks he can muster. Imagine his cronies back in power, and it's Ops Lallang number 2.

  14. Did anyone consider the likelihood of the event being aborted due to police interference?
    They might say 'no police permit' and threaten the crowd to disperse or put up road blocks all over the city to prevent people from attending the gathering.
    Or they might threaten the Hotel owners with cancellation of licence or fine them heavily for allowing their premises be used for an "illegal"
    This Rip Van Winkle PM is capable of anything.

  17. A con man is usually nice and the victims like him. He must perform some feats like SUPERMAN to get a hero label.Since his position is the leader of a 25 million people..he has to set up a team of assistants to help him in the con job and share the loot. They also must not offend the victims.
    The con master must make sure to put everyone in jail that can expose him publicly....and most important.... the police and law makers must toe the line or else..
    Once properly set up....the con job starts..little by liitle for years and squeezed you high and dry.

  18. my post answers 'old blogger'. HE HAS BEEN CONNED!!

  19. Dear Mr. Smith..I like reading your blog and smart men like you and Patrick very old friend too... are always are best friends. Birds of same feather flock together?
    But for such a smart man like you...keep suspecting PM doing all sorts of dirty such bugger{TDM} is enough.
    News cannot tell lies all the time by all mewspapers...and news today are all saying good about PM.
    I despised him for donating RM 22 million to his old school. I still do.....but when news from all walks of life saying good times are back....he must be praised again. That is why .I never cling to one party as die hard voter. Why should I? My vote is not for sale.

  20. Thanks Tun.You're the great leader ever..
