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?
