War Crimes Tribunal

Coming from the guy who rendered the Malaysian judiciary impotent, conducting a war crimes tribunal is the epitome of irony.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal is an initiative of Malaysia’s retired Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

Don't get me wrong -- most people agree that the US and UK should never have invaded Iraq.

I suspect the Americans and British would top the list of war protesters, as the war casualties from both those countries has reportedly exceeded the number of Iraqis.

Most Malaysians (and I wager, most of Asia) are not supportive of the invasion.

So I'm wondering what Mahathir is trying to achieve.

Is he trying to distract everyone from the coming elections with this?

He is revengeful towards the West. He is the Man behind making Malays believe that Human Rights & Civil Liberties are a Threat to Islam. He is the same very man who is using Islam and Malay issues that is causing uneducated Malays to wage War against non Malays. This Man is bloody dirty and idiotic and i regret loving him all my life!
