We Hear You, Condi! You Can Stop Now...

Don't get me wrong.

I think this woman has achieved much in life.

And I'm proud of her ability to rise above the hurdles and discrimination she's faced in life.

But enough already with all that meddling!

The first time was fine.

We Malaysians do like an international mention every once in a while for our stellar human rights record. It's our publicity relations stint with the rest of the world, you see.

But after that it gets old, Condi.

Perhaps no one pointed out to you, hon, that the USA is in no position to comment about our situation. In fact, to broach the topic of human rights would be nothing short of a virulent case of hypocrisy.

Would you like a list of your international misdemeanours? I've just discovered I'm not the only one who's annoyed. Tehsin is too.

And she has a list. A nice one, which I think some of us would be quite obliged to add on to. Trust me, that ain't something you'd find particularly complimentary.

So Condoleeza - lay off, baby. Otherwise, we'd be compelled to take some action like some students in New Zealand with an inherent sense of fairness and justice.

And a good plan to go with it:

Dr Rice will fly into Auckland tonight and her minders will need to be on alert after a student group announced a reward for anyone who could arrest her.

Auckland University's Student Association is offering $5,000 to anyone who can make a citizen's arrest.

Association president David Do says Dr Rice should be ashamed of her role in the Iraq war.

"I think New Zealanders have an inherent sense of fairness and justice and they understand why we are doing it," he said.

"They see the link between what the US has done to the people of Iraq."

It's good to have civic-minded citizens of the world.

And very good to have upstanding Aussie colleagues to give me the heads-up on this. :)

hantu laut, yep, I saw your blog. good one, mate!

tehsin, no problem. I was amused to see you in the same vein of posting as I had planned. I wouldn't consider Saddam as 'innocent' though. :)

hey rox.

Thought the Chaser boys must have set up an operation in NZ for a while there.

Crankshaft said...

Maybe they have cousins there. :)

rox said...

Yeah, stop meddling Condi, do you hear? (Still nodding head vigorously.) And must you look so fierce all the time to remind us of the hurdles and discrimination you faced in life?

Crankshaft said...

Hehe. I guess I found the fiercest image of her online. :)
