Mahathir offers to go out with a bang

Journalists in Malaysia, soon to be bereft of a prime minister who makes news almost every time he opens his mouth, were apparently disappointed by Mahathir Mohamad's last parliamentary appearance.

At a news conference afterwards, he was asked why his performance had been so "quiet". Always willing to oblige, Dr Mahathir replied: "You can make it loud. I can go out with a bang if you want, I can say nasty things. "Ask me a nasty question, I will give you a nasty answer." Nobody did, presumably having had enough of the international uproar over his recent criticism of Jews.

Instead, the man who has ruled Malaysia for the past 22 years was asked what advice he had for reporters ahead of his retirement tomorrow.

"Report the truth even if it is bad. Don't be a spin doctor, don't distort news, don't have your own agenda," he said.Dr Mahathir has claimed repeatedly that his remark at an Islamic summit in mid-October that Jews rule the world was taken out of context.

After a war waged by the U.S. military against Vietnam which took the lives of more than 3 million Vietnamese people and more than 58,000 GIs, the U.S. finally withdrew in 1975. It had suffered its first official major military defeat by a united people struggle led by the Vietnamese, along with a mass U.S. anti-war movement.

US to keep military ties with Indonesia
But America, East Timor, Bali, and Australian complicity have something in common with the 'Indonesian armed forces' and the fallout was the TNI's East Timor's massacre in 1999 and the CIA's false flag, call to arms Bali bombing in 2002, believe it or not.

Signs of the Times: Aggressive Scepticism
If anyone has known a schizophrenic then you may also know that it is because of some sound or picture that invaded their thoughts which sent them mad. So possibly, any invasion of my time with self, a time to integrate past experiences could send someone mad. However if there is no interference with our own thoughts and ideas we sometimes choose to write down our conclusions and share our ideas with others socially.

Megawati has made no effort to explain state terror
While Indonesia has actively allegedly cooperated in the war on terror [the Coalition of the Killing's resource wars in the Middle East], since last October's [CIA, call to arms, false flag], Bali bombings, sceptic propaganda experts have said it needed to go further and tackle the problem of military teachings in Government departments.
