Dr Mahathir wish for his own arrest

There is nothing a wily old fox like Tun Dr. Mahathir will do to achieve his long list of wishes including daring the government to put him to jail. He had recently said that there is a wish among his long list of nemesis to put him in jail. Truth to be told, it is not others that wish to jail him but his own wish to be sharing the same jail complex as his old foe, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. 

He know that his incarceration will create another chaotic situation in Malaysia like what we had witnessed in 1998 which will possibly pave way for the overthrowing of the government of the day via undemocratic means. He know that his standing among Malaysians and UMNO members is at its lowest point now and he need a catalyst to shot himself up again. What can be better than making himself the “victim” of the so called “Dictator Najib”?

Let’s not forget that Dr. Mahathir is a famous raconteur but this wily old fox often pretend forget his own narration that suits his end. He had once said that:

“Saya tidak mempunyai bantahan apa apa terhadap para pengkritik. Tetapi mereka yang berbohong, banyak cerita palsu, yang menyelewengkan setiap kenyataan mereka, yang mengunakan akhbar untuk menimbulkan rasa tidak yakin dan ketegangan - orang begini harus dihapuskan, atau tidak harus diberi muka…atau masa…oleh sesiapa."

(I have no objection to critics. However, to liars, spinners, to twisters of their statements, who use the press to create tensions – these type of people should be destroyed, should not be given face or time by anyone. Translation mine)

Dr. Mahathir had repeatedly challenge the government, fanning seditious sentiments among the people and when all these fail to topple Prime Minister Najib Razak but got his son Mukhriz booted out instead, he is going for broke. I think the time have come for people, especially the authority not to give face to this wily old man anymore. The more that the time and face given to this wily old man, I am in the opinion that Malaysia is really doomed to fail. Malaysia fail not because of the wrongdoings of others but from the ultimate products and ills created by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. 

Somehow, I strongly believe that in Dr. Mahathir’s maxim, there is a solidly anchored believe that the ends justified all and many means, including lying, challenging the government of the day to put him in jail and many more.

Gajah sama gajah bertarung, pelanduk mati ditengah - janganlah dibuat rakyat menjadi pelanduk.  Adalah lebih baik kalau yang seekor gajah yang bukan diundi oleh rakyat didiamkan. Biarlah rakyat menentukan kalah menang Datuk Seri Najib dan BN pada PRU 14, bukan Dr. Mahathir seorang yang nak tentukan.
