Indeed it was it was his own lead counsel,Karpal Singh, that exposed his misdeed.
I have said it before and I will say it again.
The farkers sexual preferences, proclivity or whatever, is his own farking business.
It is the farking man himself that is just farking too much to stomach.
I have said it before and I say it again.
I wish and hope that he will get off Sodomy II.
Anwar Ibrahim is nothing but talk only.
Needs Arseholes Talk Only.
That the man not only screws but screws things up like "IMF without IMF" is but only one of his many screwing around.
Stop The Lies gives the latest of the Uprincipled One.
Anwar talks about justice but he now needs his arseholes to subvert justice.
Not only screwing with justice but harmonious peace.
This the justice that Anwar will dispense, from Wikileaks "ANWAR TELLS DIPLOMATS HIS FUTURE IS PRIME MINISTER",
he vowed that once in power he would strike back at those involved in the current "frame-up," and then immediately clarified that they would face legal consequences.Knowing the farker, we all know what the farker means when he "strikes back"..means he'll screw you nice and proper.
and as to the farkers latest 901 gambit,
In his presentation, Anwar, looking energetic and confident, laid out a general proposition that given political conditions in Malaysia under UMNO party rule, he would either become Prime Minister or go to jail, "and this time I'm not going to jail."

"PKR does not want to prolong this issue We merely want to produce facts to correct Tun Dr Mahathir's assertions before this which were clearly lies" he said.
The Tun's remark which the PKR piece of shit is referring to as alluded by TMI,
"As far as I can remember, and I have not forgotten, I never sent any request for any money, not during the financial crisis or even after that. I had just criticised the World Bank, then I ask money from them for what? I would be stupid,"
Yes, Tun Mahathir is quoted the same in the NST as well.
Let's get to what shitty TMI reports as well,
"Yesterday PKR produced World Bank records showing that Dr Mahathir's administration had accepted financial aid numerous times from May 18 1982 to Malaysia's post-financial crisis period of March 30 1999 This includes three loans for projects inked six months after Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was sacked as deputy prime minister in September 1998"
The World Bank did approve 3 loans to Malaysia all on 30 March of 1999 -
1. Social Sector Support Project USD 60 million, 2.Year 2000 Technical Assistance Project USD 100 million and 3.Education Sector Support Project USD 244 million.
Worth mentioning, under PKR Defecato Anwar's watch as Minister of Finance, the world Bank had approved in Jun 1998 a USD 300 million Economic Recovery and Social Sector Loan.
The first two loans were subsequently cancelled but the Education Sector Support Project loan was utilised.
Looking at the dates one would get the impression that it was the Tun that had requested the Education Sector Support Project loan as Minister of Finance but a deeper look will tell you otherwise.
Look under Project Development Objective and you find this,
"In July 1998, after a five year hiatus in borrowing, the Government of Malaysia (GOM) requested Bank assistance for the education sector."
Who was the Minister of Finance at that time?
As far as I am concerned the Tun is telling the truth.

I will share their joy by shoving a little bit of information up their arses.
Global Financial Integrity background,
Global Financial Integrity was launched in September 2006 following the publication of Capitalism’s Achilles Heel: Dirty Money and How to Renew the Free-Market System, (John Wiley & Sons 2005), written by Center for International Policy Senior Fellow Raymond Baker.The first and most prominent piece of information on the GFI cover is, the Ford Foundation.
"Global Financial Integrity Wishes to thank The Ford Foundation for supporting this Project."Supporting means whatever it means. Found Foundation funds the GFI report. Unless of course GFI just fancies the Ford Foundation logo for decorative purposes.
This is the Ford Foundation,
"She also does a fine job in recounting the intriguing story of how the CIA worked with existing institutions, such as the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, and established numerous "bogus" foundations to "hide" its funding of the Congress for Cultural Freedom and its other covert activities. Everything came a cropper in 1967, however, as a result of press articles, especially revelations in the long-gone Ramparts magazine."Fuck lah. Not another conspiracy theory, you might say.
The link that quote comes from www.cia.gov of a book review and that article in the concluding para,
"As should be clear, I do not share Frances Saunders's opinion about the "morality" of CIA's activities and do not accept her notion that CIA undermined "intellectual freedom" in Western Europe. I highly enjoyed and strongly recommend her book, however. Consider it to be similar to your favorite TV broadcast: enjoy the program and ignore the commercials."The author of the article on the CIA website does not deny, discredit nor dismiss the authenticity of a book, Intelligence in Recent Public Literature.
Fuck lah. That was the 50s and 60s you will say.
James Petras in 2001,"The Ford Foundation and the CIA: A documented case of philanthropic collaboration with the Secret Police" wrote,
"As in the 1950s and 60s the Ford Foundation today selectively funds anti-leftist human rights groups which focus on attacking human rights violations of U.S. adversaries, and distancing themselves from anti-imperialist human rights organizations and leaders. The FF has developed a sophisticated strategy of funding human rights groups (HRG) that appeal to Washington to change its policy while denouncing U.S. adversaries their “systematic” violations. The FF supports HRG which equate massive state terror by the U.S. with individual excesses of anti-imperialist adversaries. The FF finances HRG which do not participate in anti-globalization and anti-neoliberal mass actions and which defend the Ford Foundation as a legitimate and generous “non-governmental organization”.Among the funders for the Center for International Policy is also, the Ford Foundation.
History and contemporary experience tells us a different story. At a time when over government funding of cultural activities by Washington is suspect, the FF fulfills a very important role in projecting U.S. cultural policies as an apparently “private” non-political philanthropic organization. The ties between the top officials of the FF and the U.S. government are explicit and continuing. A review of recently funded projects reveals that the FF has never funded any major project that contravenes U.S. policy.
In the current period of a major U.S. military-political offensive, Washington has posed the issue as “terrorism or democracy,” just as during the Cold War it posed the question as “Communism or Democracy.” In both instances the Empire recruited and funded “front organizations, intellectuals and journalists to attack its anti-imperialist adversaries and neutralize its democratic critics. The Ford Foundation is well situated to replay its role as collaborate a cover for the New Cultural Cold War."
Fuck lah. Still conspiracy theories. You still hold steadfast.
How about some logic?
A burning question.
For all it's blustering methodology this way and that in arriving at the "Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries Over the Decade Ending 2009", can the Global Financial Integrity put it's integrity on the line by having an "Illicit Financial Flows from Developed Countries?
Now, that would be more fun reading.
I know nuts about economics but for me economists are a dime a dozen or millions per personality depending on the body or medium the economist plies his trade.
No matter how good or bad, prized or pissed, how do you explain economies of the greatest world democracy like the USA and it's allies in Europe going down the toilet?
They will have the very best economists to steer their economies, no? The most highly paid, no? They are paid the moon, the sun and the universe for their expertise, no? And when the economy get flushed down the toilet, the same economists are paid the moon, the sun and the universe, to revive the economy. Fuck, paid even more. Who knows. Throw in a new planet as bonus.
Please explain. Anyone?
That being the case, how the fuck can a Global Financial Integrity or any other economic orientated organisation report be credible? Or even be taken seriously, I mean seriously.
While I am no economics whizz, accounting basic, we in Malaysia say, boleh tahan lah.
Debit and credit. What comes in must be balanced by what goes out.
Balancing the books.
Since GFI provides provides for "Illicit Financial Flows from", can the GFI also provide the countries that "Illicit Financial Flows to"?
This question, just asking only. Ok?
For integrity sake.
Unrelated Ford Foundation Wikileak,
Dr. Mutunga said the Ford Foundation is reviewing potential funding mechanisms for the protection of gay rights defenders in Uganda.
The recent Singapore MRT breakdown is given the all too familiar Malaysia bashing treatment, as headline news no less. "KL-born SMRT CEO under pressure over breakdowns."
"Singapore’s Straits Times reported today that the Kuala Lumpur-born Saw who built her career in the retail and marketing sector has now found herself “very much the villain” and is taking most of the heat for the breakdowns said to be Singapore’s worst to date."and gives a brief bio,
"Born in 1954 Saw studied at Convent Bukit Nanas here before leaving for Singapore to do her “O” Levels. She eventually graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1978. Saw was DFS Venture Singapore’s regional president in charge of Singapore Indonesia and Malaysia from 1981 to 2002 before her appointment as SMRT CEO."Here is Bloomberg's bio on Madam Phaik Hwa Saw,
Ms. Phaik Hwa Saw has been the President and Chief Executive Officer of SMRT Corp. Ltd. since December 2002. Ms. Saw has a wealth of experience in retail and international business. Ms. Saw served as Regional President for DFS Venture Singapore (Pte) Ltd., in charge of businesses in Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Her 19-year career with DFS Venture Singapore (Pte) Ltd. Ms. saw her rising through management ranks to her final position. She has been a Director of ... SMRT Corp., Ltd. since March 20, 2003. She serves as a Member of the Board of Directors of SMRT Trains Ltd., and SMRT Road Holdings Ltd. Ms. Saw is a Director of The Esplanade Co Ltd. and Singapore Tourism Board. She serves as a board member of the National Environment Agency and the Health Promotion Board. She also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Singapore Management University, the Tan Tock Seng Hospital Community Charity Fund and Youth Business Singapore. She is a member of the Sports Sub-Committee of Singapore Totalisator Board.

Ms. Saw graduated with an Honours degree in Biochemistry from the University of Singapore. She also attended an Advanced Management Programme at the University of Hawaii.Madam Saw is not a point of my discussion.
The focal point is The Malaysian Insider's consistent and farcical habit to besmirch our country to the extent of a flimsiest of Malaysian connection.
Since The Malaysian Insider finds themselves perfectly at ease denigrating our country at every opportunity, I suggest they they do an image makeover and rename their outfit The Malaysia Outsider.

I was extremely upset when my daughter mentioned in passing, of a conversation she overheard, that carolling needed a permit. I told my daughter not to bring up a matter that was untrue and to find out for herself first and if were true then it would be appropriate for mention.
This matter had been a subject post by blogger Hantulaut and I commented with a rebuttal from the IGP in the matter.
As in that post I call upon any reader to provide me a link to any report confirming the allegation.
If this allegation is proven to be accurate, it can only be the following:
1. The police officers are ignorant of the law
2. The police officers are narrow minded bigots
3. The police officers are closet opposition supporters
Item 3 will convince me, just like opposition agents provocateurs having tentacles in Christendom, there are like thinking elements within the administration to frustrate it's initiatives, thereby invoking further contempt towards the Govt.
In the charge to topple the ruling party, opposition sullied Christendom and internal subversion within the administration will gratuitously be given the widest glare of negative publicity by the other rabid opposition element ad hominem, The Malaysian Insider.
That the allegation of carolling permit being conditional is given wider attention in this TMI report, necessitates this post.
"The case comes on the heels of a recent drama over the police’s extra conditions for carolling permits on two South Klang churches less than two weeks ago."I came to know about the appointment of a new principal for Convent Bukit Nenas in a letter published in the Sundaily yesterday, where it expresses some concerns. The letter (it seem disjointed) is posted here today. Quote said letter,
“The assignment and deployment of teachers for these schools, especially the head teacher, should be done only after consultation between the personnel management authority and the boards of these schools”My point is this.
"Furthermore, during a dialogue session with heads of churches in Kota Kinabalu in 1998, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the government would continue to honour these terms."
Is this another opposition oriented action by a Govt official? Surely not. But it results in the same effect.
I have have great respect and confidence in our Deputy Prime Minister who is also the Education Minister, Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin.
As this matter comes under the purview of Tan Sri Muhyddins's ministry, and in view of opposition covert schemes prologued, it would be incumbent upon Tan Sri in his wisdom as Education Minister to look into and resolve this matter.
To be fair, even if it is not established whether Rev Father Bishop Tan Sri Murphy Pakiam had pursued formal channels for any grievance, the Rev Father is appealing for a review of the appointment.
Let no other party exploit this issue.
It is only the opposition maniacs who seek capital and gain in amplifying this issue.
That being said, I have to stand by the Church in this matter if established procedures and practices were not adhered to.
And, I will have greater respect for the Education Minister and an even greater confidence in my Deputy Prime Minister, should the matter be resolved.

Then, good ol 'Tompel' Tony "divested all my shares in the company to be able to serve the community and take part in socio-political affairs of Malaysia." and "Hopefully, after 2006, I have left the company in a much better financial state and the new management team will be able to take the company to greater heights."
Yes, honorable "Tompel" Tony kids you not, he really "left the company in a much better financial state",
Cyber Village Holdings Ltd Annual Report 2006That is why at this point in his "illustrious" career thus far, was appointed Economic Advisor to the DAP Secretary-General, Saudagar Lim Guan Eng.
In forming our unqualified opinion, we draw attention to Note 2 to the financial statements, where it is stated that as at the financial year ended 31 December 2006, the Company's current liabilities exceeded its current assets by $498,221 and for the year the Group incurred a loss of $749,946. These factors indicate the existence of an uncertainty which may cast doubt as to whether the Group and the Company are able to continue as going concerns.

Dotcom whizz, entrepreneur and now economic advisor.
Tompel Tony says there must be a "guardian angel looking after me all these while - my personal well-being, my education, my career. Some will call it "God's will", some "fate" while some others, "destiny", leaving behind his fortunes down south, taking his baggage up north, being elected MP into the cut and thrust world of politics.
In 2008 'Tompel' Tony, TT for brevity, took on newly appointed Finance Minister, Datuk Seri Najib on the Value Cap issue. The media statement makes all sorts of allegations. In sharp contrast with his Budget 2008 parliament proceeding remark on the matter, TT had already begun dramatics by that high-sounding media statement. Parliament 22 October 2008,
"Tuan Pua Kiam Wee [Petaling Jaya Utara]: Dia telah kata ada RM5 bilion untuk dilabur dalam value cap, dia kata akan meliberalisasikan sistem kewangan kita. Akan tetapi kenapa menteri tidak masuk dalam Parlimen untuk membentangkan langkahlangkah yang baru ini supaya kita dapat membahaskan polisi-polisi yang baru dan bukannya membahaskan polisi-polisi yang lama. Kita mesti ada satu polisi-polisi ini dibentangkan dalam Parlimen, Parlimen ada guna lagi tak?"Note that TT made the statement in his capacity as DAP National Publicity Secretary.
Dotcom whizz, entrepreneur, economic advisor and now publicity chief. Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man beggar man...on the first day of Christmas my true love came to me. Sorry folks, the asides came automatically to mind.
TT is also an educationalist. Yes, yes. Now I kid you not. TT the educationalist,
"I feel passionately about the education system in Malaysia and believe that given my background and experience, I would be able to provide fair comments on the education system."I would have not known about this if TT had not been so highfaluting which elicited a response from hard hitting, take no prisoners blogger, satD.
Read Pure Shiite "Tony Tompel Lu sudah lupa apa lu bilang pasai itu Kambing?" here. Correct, that is also when and where Tony got his Tompel.
Following satD's link to the TT the educationalist, you will find TT's strong views on national integration,
"We live in a multi-racial country. It is my firm believe that for the country to succeed in its national integration goals, all ethnic groups must possess good understanding of each other in terms of culture, religion and common practices. Being Malaysians, national integration should be one of our key goals so that we are able to live in harmony with one another. I’d like my daughter to grow up with life-long friends of all races, not just to “stick” among our own racial group."TT is consistent.
Recall his exploits with Makcik Nurul Izzah, of the "other" racial group, giving full support for the Govt's Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia.
On the first day of Christmas tada-tada-tada, dotcom whizz, entrepreneur, economic advisor, publicity chief and now educationalist.
Sorry folks, couldn't help myself, festive season for me what.
Initially, giving full support for the Govt's Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia, TT showed another talented profession, price checker.
TT must have found that position too mundane, less effective or as an afterthought in supporting Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia, now decided to trade price checking to become health inspector.
Dotcom whizz, entrepreneur, economic advisor, publicity chief, educationalist, price checker and health inspector.
As an M of P and in public interest, TT gives his hard earned two cents worth, in the spat between the other Tony because "I'm a huge admirer of Tony Fernandes, but I have no interest in working as hard as he does" and MAHB.
In doing so, complementing his entrepreneurial and economic skills, TT demonstates yet another talent, his prowess as soil specialist.
Dotcom whizz, entrepreneur, economic advisor, publicity chief, educationalist, price checker, health inspector and soil specialist.
There you have it folks, thats the reason for the title of this TT lating post.
No, it's not what you think it is.

TMI's latest discovery is a "top" Guardian Simon assistant editor Tisdall piece.
This blog article, "Simon Tisdall - dishonest intelligence stooge?" concludes,
Why not? This is outrageous, yet again, presenting as fact unsubstantiated claims. Neither was there any mention of El Baradei's recent statement reported by your own newspaper that there is "no credible evidence" that Iran is developing nuclear weapons".
"The article in the Guardian by Simon Tisdall, “A Surge in Accusations”, July 24 (1), appears on the same day the second round of Iran-US talks begins, and is the second article in just over two months by Simon Tisdall using unsubstantiated allegations ascribed to anonymous sources accusing Iranian government of complicity in the violence in Iraq."
Jon Pilger in "Iran’s nuclear threat is a lie",
"Based on unsubstantiated claims by the Pentagon, the writer Simon Tisdall presented as fact an Iranian "plan" to wage war on, and defeat, US forces in Iraq by September of that year - a demonstrable falsehood for which there has been no retraction.
The official jargon for this kind of propaganda is "psy-ops", the military term for psychological operations. In the Pentagon and Whitehall.."
"The horror continues in Libya behind “a complete whiteout by the corporate media regarding all news from Libya.” Even the United Nations, an architect of the nation’s destruction, says 7,000 prisoners are held without trial or charge, most of them Black, many of them tortured. “Any known Qaddafi loyalists who have not been able to get out of Libya have to stay underground.” Death squads scour the land. “Truck loads of bodies are being carted away, as the now feuding armed gangs, each with their own command structure, and none adhering to anything the NTC says, introduces the only policy they ever had – exterminate Qaddafi and all those loyal to him.”
Gerald A. Perreira
This is the dark time, my love,
All round the land brown beetles crawl about
The shining sun is hidden in the sky
Red flowers bend their heads in awful sorrow
This is the dark time, my love,
It is the season of oppression, dark metal, and tears.
It is the festival of guns, the carnival of misery
Everywhere, the faces of men are strained and anxious
Who comes walking in the dark night time?
Whose boot of steel tramps down the slender grass
It is the man of death, my love, the stranger invader
Watching you sleep and aiming at your dream.- Martin Carter
All of the good that Muammar Qaddafi did for his people, and the immeasurable contribution he made to the oppressed peoples of the world is catalogued everywhere for those who have eyes to see. NATO’s war crimes are also catalogued – they went viral, so even in the absence of a court where NATO and their mercenaries can be tried, millions of people worldwide watched, at their computers and TV screens, the horrific war crimes that unfolded in Sirte and elsewhere in Libya.
The verdicts are in. The question is what can be done about it?
The world was quite literally watching and still can watch, anytime they care to google the litany of obscene crimes committed, when a coalition of the most powerful nations on this earth, backed up by the vast majority of Arab and African misleaders, deployed the most sophisticated arsenal of weaponry in the history of the world against a small bastion of African resistance. In the now famous cities of Sirte and Bani Walid, Colonel Muammar Abu Minyar al-Qaddafi led his people in a courageous battle which lasted for months. The battles of Sirte and Bani Walid have surely earned their place in the annals of African history.
At his side were his son, Mutassim Qaddafi and Libya’s Minister of Defense, and one of the leaders of the 1969 Al Fateh revolution, Major General Abu-Bakr Yunis Jaber. Decades ago, he and the young Muammar were in the same class at the Military Academy in Benghazi and were co founders of the Free Officers’ Movement which overthrew King Idris.
"The battles of Sirte and Bani Walid have surely earned their place in the annals of African history."
A Picture Tells a 1000 Words
The picture of Sirte, after NATO’s bombardment, is worth more than a thousand words when it comes to understanding what actually took place in this once beautiful and prosperous African city. And all in the name of “protecting civilians” – clearly with the exception of civilians loyal to Muammar Qaddafi and the Al Fateh revolution. We salute all of those who fought to defend Al Fateh and the Pan African project in Sirte, Bani Walid and throughout Libya. They are the real Jihadists – the true Pan-African Army.
Julius Malema, ANC Youth Leader, in reference to the North Atlantic Tribes, asked the question – why are these people so bloodthirsty? He pointed out that they did not seem to understand anything other than war.
It is no surprise that Julius Malema has been banned by Jacob Zuma’s ANC. Zuma is one of those African misleaders who signed Qaddafi’s death warrant, when South Africa, along with Nigeria and French controlled Gabon, all temporary members of the so-called Security Council at the time, agreed to the implementation of a ‘No Fly Zone’, which unleashed the demons of war.
Let us not imagine that they did not know what would ensue – the entire world has just witnessed the destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan. It was a painful blow to many Africans in Africa and throughout the world. We remembered Nelson Mandela’s now famous speech, when on the world stage he called Muammar Qaddafi “one of the great freedom fighters of the 20th century” and he publicly thanked the Brother Leader and the people of Libya for the material and moral support provided to the ANC when, as Mandela put it – their “backs were up against the wall.” The half-hearted attempts by the AU to take the necessary action to defend Libya was shameful and demoralizing.
There was a time…
Some of it in my lifetime, when we had visionary, principled and courageous African leaders – Shaka Zulu, Queen Nzingha, Cetshwayo, Dedan Kimathi, Julius Nyerere, Ahmed Sekou Toure, Kwame Nkrumah, Jamal Abdul Nasser, Marien Ngouabi, Ahmed Ben Bella, Samora Machel, Thomas Sankara, Murtala Muhammad, Laurent Kabila to name but a few. Had leaders such as these been in power today, NATO could not have gotten away with invading Libya. The fact is, with few exceptions, the current bunch of African leaders, many of them put in place by the forces of white supremacy were just not up to the job.
Those who are misleading Africa today – “who the cap fit let them wear it” – have paid a dear price. What is coming our way will be punishment for such a colossal betrayal. And sadly, we will all suffer for their sins.
"The murder of Muammar Qaddafi plunged us into despair. We mourned his death as sons mourn their father – he called us his sons and we responded as such because we understood his sincerity.
Those who worked with Qaddafi can testify that the Brother Leader’s efforts were motivated by a strong and uncompromising faith in God, his deep love for humanity and a sincere desire to assist all those engaged in the struggle to end injustice and oppression. If anyone epitomized Che’s famous quote, it was our brother: “Revolutionaries are first human beings, and at the risk of sounding utterly ridiculous, revolution is based upon supreme feelings of love.”
The current bunch of African leaders, many of them put in place by the forces of white supremacy were just not up to the job.
Those among the leadership of Al Fateh who were not murdered, were captured. Dr Ahmed Ibrahim, one of the foremost exponents of the Third Universal Theory, an intellectual warrior and committed Pan-Africanist, was captured while defending Sirte. The uncle of Moussa Ibrahim, who over the past months became known as the spokesperson for the legitimate government of Libya, he is currently being held in Misurata, and his son, Yurub Ibrahim, has also been arrested. The well known Islamic scholar Sheik Khaled Tantoush, has been abducted from his home in Sirte and is also being held in Misurata. These elderly men are being subjected to constant taunting, beatings and torture and their condition is deteriorating rapidly. Global campaigns have been launched to demand the protection under international law and conventions, regarding prisoners of war, for high profile prisoners Saif-al Islam Qaddafi, Abdullah Senussi, Ahmed Ibrahim, Khaled Tantoush and the thousands of prisoners held by the NTC. (see Libya 360°for ways you can assist the campaign and video footage of how these prisoners are being treated).
In addition to loyalty to the Leader, and defense of their country against foreign invaders, having black skin and asserting one’s Africanity has become a crime in the new Libya. Ethnic cleansing is continuing unabated. Every day Black Africans from Libya and other parts of Africa are hunted down. Thousands have been brutally tortured and executed. Rape of Black women is a favored weapon of NATO’s Islamists. Many of the female bodies found show signs of rape, beatings and torture. Large numbers of Black Africans make up the ranks of the Green Resistance."
NATO’s Living Hell
One Tripoli resident, who cannot be named, told me:
“Everyone is terrified of the NTC and their armed gangs. We have seen with our own eyes what they are capable of – they are animals. All around us people are being rounded up and imprisoned. We have no way of knowing how many have been murdered. Anyone who is associated with Qaddafi or suspected of loyalty to him is at risk. Even people who have worked for people who are known supporters of the leader have been rounded up and tortured. I personally know of many persons who were just working for people associated with the leader who have been taken away and never seen again. If you are black you are an immediate suspect – these rebels call black Libyans “abd” means slave and they are rounding them up just because they are black – it is making me sick and ashamed.
“What these rebels have done to their own people is disgusting – some of the acts of torture I can’t even speak about. There has been a lot of rape. I wept when I learned of what these animals did to the leader’s female bodyguards – they are not human and that is why there is so much fear. Any known Qaddafi loyalists who have not been able to get out of Libya have to stay underground. Libyans are afraid to talk to other Libyans – anyone could be an informer. It feels like the last days are upon us – Libya has been turned into a living hell.”
There is now a complete whiteout by the corporate media regarding all news from Libya. And of course, although a genocide is unfolding right before our eyes, there will be no outcry from the UN, Amnesty International or that euphemistic chorus known as “the international community.” that bleats on ad nauseum about ’democracy, human rights and the rule of law’? No time or motive for outcry – having shared the spoils, they have already moved on to their next victims – Syria and Iran.
To do their dirty work, NATO employed the most barbaric marauders they could find. These Islamist mercenaries are programmed, sadistic fighters – they have been on the battlefields in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya. They have been hired many times over by NATO, who characteristically plays all sides, and that is why they need to sprinkle stimulant powders on their food – to keep them in killing mode.
Shouting Allahu Akhbar, like robots, they go from town to town, city to city, ransacking, beating, torturing, raping and murdering, and then, in their crazed state, with inflated feelings of omnipotence, they actually take footage of themselves committing heinous war crimes and post them on youtube.
"As the people bury their dead, they defiantly whisper, “Allah, Muammar, Libya and nothing else.” Amidst the screams that can be heard deep into the night, a shell shocked population tries to understand what happened to them, and struggles to come to terms with the obscene end inflicted on a man they loved. Now they must try to find a way to confront the ‘brave new world’ that has been imposed upon them by this foreign invasion. In an instant, they have been transported back in time to when Europeans last occupied their country."
Green Resistance – It is only a matter of time…
"The war in Libya is far from over. The corporate media continues the lie that Libya has been “liberated” and that life there has ‘returned to normal’. In truth, chaos reigns. Rumors about NATO’s plans to carve up the country are rife and Libya remains engulfed in warfare.
People are being systematically hunted down. Truck loads of bodies are being carted away, as the now feuding armed gangs, each with their own command structure, and none adhering to anything the NTC says, introduces the only policy they ever had – exterminate Qaddafi and all those loyal to him. That numbers in the millions and they are stopping at nothing to track them down.
The Green resistance referred to as the Libyan Liberation Army (LLA) or the Libyan Liberation Front (LLF) is regrouping and growing stronger by the day. Street battles are commonplace, explosions can be heard all over Tripoli and in other regions, and NATO’s mercenaries are facing fierce resistance."
Libya’s powerful Warfalla Tribe, comprising more than a million Libyans, have stated that “they are thirsting for revenge,” many of them having fought in the battle of Bani Walid.
One Green resistance fighter summed up the feeling of all:
"It does not matter how long it takes, we will rise again as sure as the sun rises. It is only a matter of time. It may not be today – we are a patient people. Right now, many of us have to lay low while the leaders regroup and put certain things in place so that we can take our resistance to the next level, but we know our time will come and we are only waiting for the word to take up our arms.
We have to be organized and this takes time, especially under the present conditions of occupation. Our people are being tortured and raped and murdered for supporting the leader and defending their revolution. We have had to leave our homes and watch these dogs destroy them and steal everything from us. But our day will come – we can never forget the crimes committed against us by NATO and these murdering thieves who call themselves revolutionaries and Muslims.
What I have seen with my own two eyes is unbelievable – people committing the cruelest acts – crimes against humanity while they cry out Allahu Akhbar. They are like drugged people. We have uncovered mass graves of Qaddafi loyalists – with their hands tied behind their backs – all executed. I want to tell them that every person they tortured, every person murdered, every woman they raped, every home they destroyed and looted and everything they did to our dear leader and his family will be avenged."
This is not the first time this has happened to us Libyans – this is exactly what happened to us when the Italians occupied our land – thanks to the leader we are a very educated people now – we know our history and our heroes. The NTC has already taken the picture of Omar Al Mukhtar off the Libyan dinar but it does not matter – they can destroy every picture of Omar Al Mukhtar and the leader, because the story of his bravery and the bravery of his son Muammar Qaddafi is in our hearts – these men can never die – and this gives us the belief and certainty that we will overcome these thieves again – believe me, it is only a matter of time.
A Frenzied Phase
The invasion of Libya and the murder of Muammar Qaddafi ushered in what can be described as the empire’s ‘frenzied phase’. Capitalism and imperialism are taking their last hideous gasps, and in this phase we will see their evil laid bare. NATO will continue to become ever more brazen with its ‘shock and horror’ tactics, believing that they are unstoppable and invincible, as once did Rome. In other words, with the imperialists in panic mode, we can expect their behavior to become all the more barbaric, savage and uncivilized, as has been prophesied.
The Twilight Zone – Vampires of Empire
The additional dimension in this new phase is that capitalism, White supremacy’s socio-economic system, has entered a period of unprecedented crisis – it is on its last legs and the system is turning in on itself. The vampires of empire do indeed “suck the blood of the sufferer.” They are desperate now and quite literally don’t care if they are seen to be dripping in our blood. Their global economic arrangement is crumbling faster than they can hold their next summit, and we cannot be caught off guard.
We have watched Europe and the US forestall their collapse for a number of years, to the point where they are frantic and fast running out of ideas. As fast as they share the spoils of one war – they need another to quench their insatiable appetite for plunder. Our trouble is, that many of us are too slow to follow the visionary leadership in their midst. Had African leaders shared the vision, united and worked together toward a United States of Africa as Qaddafi pleaded, the world would have been a very different place today. Muammar Qaddafi and the Libyan revolution were on the verge of bringing about a total shift in the global balance of power, and giving Africa its rightful place in the world. We have never been so close to reasserting African power. He was truly a Lion of Africa.
A Ruthless Enemy – Know Them
"The North Atlantic Tribes are an extremely ruthless enemy. It is necessary to study and understand their mentality in order to build an effective resistance. Indisputably, there is good and bad in every race. However, also indisputably, the historical and cultural continuum known as Europe has specificities that no other group on the face of this earth has demonstrated. Their will to dominate, consume and destroy is unparalleled".
Marimba Ani, in her seminal work, Yurugu, An Afrikan-Centered Critique of European Cultural Thought and Behavior, offers an incisive analysis of the European mindset. In her words:
“All modes of European behavior and dominant styles of action act to increase and ensure material control…The power ideology that defines the total culture keeps it off- balance. The culture itself – always “progressing,” never “progressed” – is unidirectional, one dimensional, fanatical, and atrophied; a culture that must consume others. But ultimately this ideology is incoherent; it literally lacks human meaning. It is the compulsiveness, the drive, the insatiable appetite of the culture that are its distinguishing features…it is as well-constructed as a power machine can be…For success it has sacrificed ‘soul’. What is left is profane. Aesthetically, and in terms of self-image, it identifies as white. Europe is the cultural home of a people who identify as one race; i.e., banding together for survival and destruction of others. They would destroy each other if there were not others to destroy. They fear and hate blackness, which they associate with spiritual power – a power which they can neither possess, create nor control.”
In White Racism: A Psychohistory, Joel Kovel describes this drive to conquer and destroy as a ‘cosmic yearning’, ‘a bottomless longing’.
Samuel Huntington, author of the Clash of Civilizations reminds us of something that we should never forget: “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion, but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence.”
That is the reason why the enemy gets so agitated when we organize armed resistance, because they know how powerful organized violence can be.
Brother Leader warned us to “hold down our corners” because if they get past Libya they are coming for all of us.
The invasion of Libya and the murder of Qaddafi is what happened to a nation and its leader when they give up their program to develop “weapons of mass destruction” and opted for a path of peaceful coexistence. In an interview at the beginning of the war, Saif Qaddafi admitted that Libya had been caught “unprepared for war,” having not even upgraded their conventional weaponry. No nation will ever make that fatal mistake again. The North Atlantic Tribes can never be trusted. Deterrents of any kind are better than no deterrents at all
"The North Atlantic Tribes have mastered the art of war and perfected weaponry like no other peoples in history. They are the quintessential warlords."
In order to carry out this regrab, in their desperate and frenzied attempt to hasten their plunder of Africa and the global south’s wealth, it is imperative for the imperialists to get rid of all revolutionary nationalist regimes that might stand in their way, and ensure that compliant regimes are firmly in place. We must prepare ourselves for what is to come. In his last message, the Brother Leader warned us to “hold down our corners” because if they get past Libya they are coming for all of us. The challenge in this phase is to find ways to cope with the Empire’s collapse and to strengthen our resistance in order to confront the frantic and barbaric behavior which will inevitably characterize their demise.
Their House is Burning – Not Ours
At a global economic summit in 2009, former President of Brazil, Lula Da Silva, when commenting on the global economic crisis, stated, “This was a crisis that was fostered and boosted by the irrational behavior of people who were white and blue-eyed, who before the crisis looked like they knew everything about economics, but now have demonstrated they know nothing about economics.” He added, “The part of humanity that is responsible should be the part that pays for the crisis.”
Too many of us are still, as Malcolm X put it, “house negroes.” The house negro lived in the master’s house and when the master’s house was burning, he said “we house burning.” If the master was sick, the house negro said “we sick.” And then there was the field negro. When he saw the master’s house burning he said “Let it burn.”
In Africa, South America, the Caribbean and throughout the global south, we have been in crisis for centuries as a result of the imperialists endless thirst for domination, plunder and war. It is the master’s house that is burning this time. And we say – “let it burn.” The demise of this empire is a welcome thing. We don’t need to concern ourselves with bringing Babylon down, for it is surely crumbling – politically, economically, ideologically and morally, due to its own internal contradictions. In the meantime, as Muammar Qaddafi urged, ‘we must build the new as the old crumbles around us’. Only then can we be ready. It is not the end of the world – it is the end of their world.

Of course, what the ex-Sungai Buloh resident alludes is the "Arab Spring".
A commentary by neocon John Hopkins fellow, "Neoconservatives and the Arab Spring", on the revolutions gives an invaluable insight to Neocon Israel nexus, Islamists, American styled democratic aspirations and consequences.
The commentary has numerous quotes relevant to this post but in the gamut of highbrowed observation, this teeny bit, is most apt,
"The net effect was to make the region less free, more violent, and poorer than it would have been."
How can anyone give Anwar any credence when his hypocrisy is confirmed again in an answer during Q&A,
"This is also a problem, but if you have the institutions in place as seen in Indonesia—there are very strong Islamic parties; there are even Islamic parties that call for the formation of an Islamic state and the application of Shariah; they were allowed to contest. I wouldn’t agree with their position, but I must respect their right to espouse their view.Who, who are we to say, “Well, these groups can’t contest because they are Islamic and therefore does not conform to our thinking”? I mean, you are suppose to be a liberal—you talk about democracy—you allow them. But I believe that if you have institutions of civil society in place, clear constitutional provisions, and have a free media and have an open discourse, people will decide. In the Indonesian experience, people have decided for a moderate system of governance, wisely so. Even in the worst-case scenario (not necessarily to me), if an Islamic Party takes over power and applies some provisions of Islamic Law, you have a clear constitutional provision that allows for a latitude; beyond that it is transgressing the constitutional framework, which you cannot do. But even if they do it, then the next time around—the next 4 years—there will be elections where the people can endorse their rule or can topple their rule. Why must we have this phobia, as many Americans have? I fail to understand. I’m not saying that I support the other position; but I think to call yourself a liberal democrat as long as there is a free market, there’s freedom of expression, there’s freedom of religion—that is not to be compromised. Then it should be ok."
Hardcore Anwaristas and Pakatanis will accuse me of spinning, in my emphasis of his "Islamic state and the application of Shariah", that Anwar did not specifically state what he did not agree to.
There is no spin. At The Ismail Faruqi Award Presentation Ceremony in his International Islamic University Malaysia in February 1995, regarding PAS' Syariah Hudud laws, this is what Anwar pronounced,
"In the context of Malaysia today, this misconception is further compounded by the problem posed by those who, in their desire to gain political mileage, have called for the implementation of the hudud. It did not matter that the hudud laws they have drafted were not based strictly on established methodology of Islamic jurisprudence. Naturally the resultant Bill that was drafted contains serious contradictions and glaring defects in respect of such crucial matters as the scope of the crime, the nature of the evidence required as well as the punishment to be meted out. And worst, they have completely disregarded the paramount objectives of the Shariah itself. This is indeed a most retrograde move."
As for an Islamic state, would these diehard Anwaristas and Pakatanis dare to demand Anwar's position of an Islamic state for Malaysia? Please demand it now.
I am very sure Pakatanis of the DAP kind will be more than interested to know Anwar's stand, being anointed Prime Minister elect of a Pakatani Government by the DAP Secretary General himself, Lim Guan Eng.
The revolution in Libya is now "complete". War drums are now pounding for Syria and Iran, an extension of the "Arab Spring" for "freedom and democracy".
Many are condemned as "conspiracy theorists" when they claim that "Arab Spring" is nothing more than US, and now NATO aggression in Libya, to topple regimes are purely for the control of oil.
The failure to produce a single weapon of mass destruction, being the reason for the war monger Bush to invade Iraq, is ample ammunition for the many "conspiracy theorists".
Many will recall the Asian financial crises of 1997 and the Malaysian solution which vindicated Tun Mahathir. This gave rise to the Tun mooting Gold Dinar as a currency for trade to prevent currency speculation of the Soros kind.
That Anwar adopted IMF solutions for the crisis and his close association with Wolfowitz is well documented. One such document 29 Apr 2005 by Mike Billington, "Malaysia’s Anwar Ibrahim: Wolfowitz’s Knife in Asia’s Back" in the Executive Intelligence Review,
Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, refused to subject its population to IMF dictates. Nonetheless, Dr. Mahathir at first allowed Anwar, who was then his Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, to follow his personal preference for what became know as “IMF policies without the IMF”: across the board austerity, interest rate hikes, and the cancellation of major infrastructure projects.
"So, the allegations that we, I in particular, had to resort to the IMF and World Bank is a lie. We did not. At no time did we apply or appeal to the World Bank or IMF for funds, because we had the funds."
Again this is part and parcel of Anwar's specialty, distorting facts.
That being said, there are a lot of beguiling information and admission from Anwar of his actions, in that forum.
Mike Billinton on 12 Sep 2008, wrote another piece on Anwar, "British Empire Tool To Recolonize Malaysia", detailing Anwar's neoconnections.
You would be wondering by now what the Gold Dinar got to do with the "Arab Spring".
Accuse me of having "conspiracy" theories but I too held the opinion that "Arab Spring" are US hegemonistic designs to control or exert control over oil producing Arab lands.
Iraq, 4th, Libya 7th and Iran 3rd in oil reserves of the top ten oil producing countries where all are US dominant Arab countries except Venezuela 2nd and Nigeria 10th, surely supports this hypothesis.
Venezuela having a rough ride with the US cannot be of coincidence.
That is the general "conspiracy" theory expounded.
But it is too simplistic.
There is another more sinister but coherent reason for US expedient control of oil.
One which Tun Mahathir may have been cognisant to.
Giving a very thorough history of the US dollar worthiness here at Energy Bulletin, Dr Krassimir Petrov writes "The Iranian Oil Exchange Proposal And The Demise Of The Dollar" asserting in much detail, that it is not oil per se that the US need control over but the continued use of US dollars for it's trade,
"In 1971, as it became clearer and clearer that the U.S Government would not be able to buy back its dollars in gold, it made in 1972-73 an iron-clad arrangement with Saudi Arabia to support the power of the House of Saud in exchange for accepting only U.S. dollars for its oil. The rest of OPEC was to follow suit and also accept only dollars. Because the world had to buy oil from the Arab oil countries, it had the reason to hold dollars as payment for oil.
Because the world needed ever increasing quantities of oil at ever increasing oil prices, the world's demand for dollars could only increase. Even though dollars could no longer be exchanged for gold, they were now exchangeable for oil."
"The man that actually did demand Euro for his oil was Saddam Hussein in 2000. At first, his demand was met with ridicule, later with neglect, but as it became clearer that he meant business, political pressure was exerted to change his mind. When other countries, like Iran, wanted payment in other currencies, most notably Euro and Yen, the danger to the dollar was clear and present, and a punitive action was in order."
"Indeed, this is the case: two months after the United States invaded Iraq, the Oil for Food Program was terminated, the Iraqi Euro accounts were switched back to dollars, and oil was sold once again only for U.S. dollars. No longer could the world buy oil from Iraq with Euro."
"Muammar Gadhafi's decision to pursue gold standard and reject dollars for oil payments may have sealed his fate."
"Observers say implementing that vision would change the world power equation and threaten Western hegemony. In response, the United States and its NATO partners have determined “Gadhafi must go,” and assumed the role of judge, jury and executioner."
The Iranian government has finally developed the ultimate "nuclear" weapon that can swiftly destroy the financial system underpinning the American Empire. That weapon is the Iranian Oil Bourse slated to open in March 2006. It will be based on a euro-oil-trading mechanism that naturally implies payment for oil in Euro.There is no denying that the former Deputy Prime Minister now anointed PM elect, has a wide network of influential crony buddies, top of which is another eX, ex-World Bank chief Paul "the wolf" Wolfowitz. Also among his eX buddies is fraudster ex-Vice President Al "reformasi" Gore.
Anwar, being the Anwar who would do anything to realize his cherished dream to be Prime Minister, incurred the wrath of the powerful American Jewish lobby B'nai B'rith International, with his 1Malaysia slogan being 1Israel antics in Parliament.
Probably, with that ending any hope of American support from his neoconnection for an "Arab Spring" in Malaysia.
And if the preservation of the US dollar, the execution of Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein also supports the construct, is the true agenda for "Arab Spring" revolutions, what more with Anwar's open support for Hudud, hence his "Malaysian Spring".
Be that as it may, conspiracy theories or otherwise, Anwar Ibrahim "Malaysia Spring" in the words of Chandra Muzaffar, for us would be "an unmitigated disaster".

In most of the previous elections the bulk of the Indian community has been supporting the ruling coalition despite the poor image of the Malaysian Indian Congress amongst the Indians. It was felt that the ethnic Indians, being just 8% of the total population, can not cause much ripples in the overall outcome of the elections.
However this time the impact has been definitely felt. According to a media report, backing from the Indians for the ruling coalition had plummeted from 82 percent to 47percent. The MIC, which had a track record of winning almost all the parliamentary and state seats contested, has been annihilated in this election.
The party managed to retain only 3 of the 9 parliamentary seats and 6 of the 19 state seats it contested. The President of the MIC (Samy Vellu), Deputy President, two Vice Presidents, the Youth chief and Women’s wing chief lost in the election.
One major contributing factor for the debacle of the Indian party was the advent of the Hindu Rights Action Force and their demonstration on 25 November 2007, that rocked Malaysia and brought the plight of ethnic Indians to the attention of the international media. The handling of this demonstration and subsequent follow up action by the MIC added fuel to the fire.
Whether Hindraf can lay claim for that ripple effect is moot. But what is an undeniable fact is that it contributed to the opposition gains.
Thus by 2010, Hindraf now the Human Rights Party, began chastising the Pakatanis, "Pakatan has failed the Indians, says Uthayakumar",
“We’ve sent letters to Opposition leaders Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, Kedah Menteri Besar Azizan Abdul Razak and Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, informing them that we would be here today, at 11.30am, to discuss our issues,” Uthayakumar told reporters.
“We are very disappointed that they’re not here today. Their absence reflects their refusal to solve our problems.”
An increase in the Malay, Chinese and Indian vote of approximately 3%, 1% and 50% respectively gives us the Malay, Chinese and Indian support levels for BN at 74%, 61% and 82% respectively, delivering slightly over 72% of the popular vote and a vote majority of slightly under 3,700 votes, not far from the actual results.
According to Table 2, the increase in BN’s share of the popular vote in the only non-Malay majority polling station - Kerdau - was 13.5%. This increase is consistent with an increase in the Malay (6%), Chinese (10%) and Indian (20%) support for BN in this polling station.
"the swing in the Indian vote back to the BN, which is a more recent phenomenon, continues to pick up steam. Depending on the magnitude of the swing from 2004 to 2008, the expected swing in the Indian support for the BN could be anywhere from 20% to 50%."
The DAP must have not taken Uthayarkumar's statement too kindly, and with the Indian community support returning to BN fold, accused ‘Racist Uthayakumar a BN agent’.
It comes as no surprise then that the DAP, by it's token Indian MPs needed to shore up Indian support by yet another publicity stunt which they are well known for, hence the meeting with the BJP officials as posted by Datuk Rocky.
And copycatting Hindraf for good measure.
At the height of the Hindraf demonstrations, one of India most popular youth portals, The Viewspaper, in an article had this to say,
"The protests have aroused considerable public and political interest in India. With Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Karunanidhi asking the union government to interfere and help the Tamils. Now I am no foreign affairs expert but in my opinion, the Indian government should restrict itself to expressing its concern for the ethnic Indians purely because the issue is an internal issue of Malaysia and the Malaysian government should tackle it. The Indian government should respect the sovereignty of the Malaysian government and its laws however discriminatory they may be. Moreover, the Tamils are not even claiming to be NRIs (Non Resident Indians) or PIOs (Persons of Indian Origin). That they are demanding for a share in the national wealth (of Malaysia) is proof enough that they consider themselves Malaysian nationals and not Indian nationals."

I do use the Kelana line LRT from time to time, from the Wisma Jamek station to Bangsar where my younger sister stays but not too often as to require a season pass.
Today was one of those days.
As a routine to do my monthly banking chores, needing to cash out and bank in, using three banks, Bangsar was convenient as two banks were nearby my sisters place after I had checked my other bank balance at the Wisma Jamek or Bangsar LRT station.
Getting to the point, as said today was one of those days but unfortunately the ATM kiosk at Wisma Jamek was not accessible until I had purchased a ticket because it was now fenced in after the turnstile entrance.
It was about 7.15pm and the Mrs had called me earlier in the morning that she would be at my sister's house in Bangsar.
So no problem because I was going to get a ticket anyway and I proceeded to one of three new ticket dispensing machines two meters away, those that I also noticed at the Bandaraya Ampang line LRT station mentioned.
Waiting in queue and as fate would have it with no small change, only a ten ringgit bill, the electronic board on the machine at my line showed that it was for exact change only.
Glancing at the other two machines which the electronic board showed was for notes and shillings, I queued again at one of these two. In the meantime I had changed my ten ringgit note with another queue-ee for two 5 ringgit notes, just in case.
At my turn upon touching the screen, shit. At the bottom right of the screen were images of 100, 50, 10 and 5 ringgit bills marked with red "X" and 1 and 2 ringgit bills unmarked. What it meant was that the dispensing machine were only accepting 1 and 2 ringgit notes.
The person behind then said that I could get a ticket at the counter.
I was pissed by now and went over to the counter where there was another queue and directly to the counter personnel who was attending to the line of people purchasing tickets.
Knocking on the glass panel and speaking through a few small holes, I asked to see the Manager. The person at the counter just gave a cursory look at me and continued serving people. On a loud shout from me he just answered "sudah keluar" without any enquiry for my request.
You bet, I started to raise my voice. Okay, I was shouting to see the Manager. I am never one just accepting fate when fate frowns unfortunately. I will not take it sitting down or standing up.
In the midst of all this, along came a neatly dressed gentleman who politely asked me to calm down. I did not. Initially. I told the gentleman that nothing was right. That there were no signs around to guide people on an obvious new system. That even the dispensing machines were not accurately programmed. That in the front of my previous queue, an elderly lady had to get the person in front of her to assist to use the dispensing machine.
I told the gentleman that there should be some personnel at the machines to guide people.
He said that that was why he was there the past two hours to sort out issues.
This gentleman then apologised and told me that what had happened was unacceptable to him. He offered to help get my ticket. He asked my name and gave me his calling card.
I honestly had no intention to get any sort preference over others queueing.
I told the gentleman what I always tell many many others, we have everything in the world, in Malaysia. It is people that screw things up.
Saying that he understood me being upset and that he was looking into matters, he asked a Rapid staff to get me my ticket.
As it turned out it was a token, literally speaking. Like those parking tokens instead of tickets.
While waiting for the "ticket"* I looked at his calling card.
I apologised to the gentlement. I had no intention in making a big hue and cry. I said that sometiimes, in Malaysia, you need to shout to get attention.
At dinner I sent the gentleman an e-mail in thanks, praise and another apology for making such a row. He replied almost immediately saying that it was him that should apologise.
What was happening at all RapidKL stations, I found out advertently, was for this post. I guess I have not been in the loop.
RapidKL had yesterday started it's full integration of ticketing, for both the Ampang and Kelana lines which had a separate ticketing system for the last 12 years, two days ahead of schedule.
The New Straits Times reports Prasarana Group Managing Director, Dato' Shahril Mokhtar,
"I am happy to announce that response for the new AFC integrated ticketing system has been good.Yes, there are some teething problems to overcome. I am absolutely sure it will be resolved. That, I have no doubt.
"On that note, I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the commuters for their support and kind consideration.
"In this process of transition, there had been teething problems and congestion because of reduced gates as we need to keep both systems running.
"On behalf of Prasarana, I would like to offer my apologies."
The ticket integration will be a success.
You see, when I read that polite and unassuming gentleman's business card, it was... Dato Shahril Mokhtar, Group Managing Director, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad.
Syabas Dato. We need more people like you.
You have put some faith back in me, in the future of Malaysian public transport, what with me being a regular KTM Komuter commuter.
You are the kind of people who make me proud to be Malaysian, the beautiful kind.
You are more debonair in person than your Prasarana bio pic.
