Tun Mahathir - Truly a World Statesman

It pains me to see that all that the country stood for internationally, during our beloved TUN MM's leadership, is fast losing its credibility as a champion against injustices and prejudices. The nation once admired, is now just another ordinary far away place on a map. From chairing the Non-Aligned Movement and OIC at the tail-end of his administration and presently to being puppets and stooges in the name of a more 'open' and 'transparent' democracy. All this in such a short space of time. The polemics advocated towards the criminal regimes of Blair and Bush, with their ill conceived lies to legitimise an illegal war (in defiance of the UN) and sacrificing the lives of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children in Iraq, have now come full circle. From where TMM started, in vehement opposition to these criminals, to the present at the helm of a monocratic empty head in subservience. Blair's presence in our country is a sacrilege. To preach us their brand of hypocritical democracy in our country implies that we subscribe and adhere to their new world order.
While once I was proud to be Malaysian, now most oftentimes my head hangs low in shame. We have lost so much and are at sea in the absence of his astute and visionary leadership.
