Bush / Badawi Coincidence

January 29 2002: About 4 1/2 months after the 9/11 incident, President George W. Bush delivered his State of the Union address that mentions the word 'evil' for the first time.

During these last few months, I've been humbled and privileged to see the true character of this country in a time of testing. Our enemies believed America was weak and materialistic, that we would splinter in fear and selfishness. They were as wrong as they are evil. (Applause.)
Never before in the last 20 years since Bush Sr and Clinton had the previous prime ministers nor presidents mentioned the word 'evil' in their state of union addresses directly until Bush uttered it the first time during that address.

Flash forward 6 years later and Abdullah Badawi also mirrors Bush in uttering the word 'evil' in the face. On that day when he bashed 'Kickdefella' on media print, it was quoted:

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has described the action of a blogger in calling on his blogsite followers to fly the national flag upside down as a sign of protest, as evil.

Two days after I told some prominent bloggers about 'Kickdefella' in trouble, most of the prominent bloggers hit back at Abdullah for such thinking and mentality. Even Mr. Mahathir, although I do not fully believe in him, provided some points about this scenario that I must concur and agree with that. Quoting in translation:

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's reaction is predictable. The suggestion of this campaign is interpreted as 'no manners'. As usual threats were made to the police to take action against that blogger. Other bloggers are bashed and were considered as not useful and causing problem to the people.

The suggestion of flying the national flag upside down is considered as insulting our own selves as Malaysian people. Has it come across Abdullah's heart to ask and know why the wierd suggestion is made. As with BN's defeat in March this year, Abdullah denied that there's something wrong with BN and the government under his leadership which caused BN supporters from all races giving votes to the opposition. Instead, he interpreted the massive drop of votes to BN candidates were caused by sabotage and certain parties do not want to give 2/3 majority win to BN. Why they did that was never questioned by him, only anger and threatening to act against them.

There were many ways made to make leaders aware of people disatisfaction, but his constant denial makes the message intended misinterpreted and giving the wrong meaning. In the people's dismay, it makes it hard for them to celebrate with joy and the spirit of celebrating Merdeka.

Anwar previously said that letting the petrol prices floating according to world prices by Abdullah is an IMF prescription, as well as letting the ringgit floating against the major basket of currencies. One question though: previously in 1997/8, Anwar attempted this prescription but the question was never answered: what was Anwar's idea in mind. Did he actually saw from far that things will recover very fast that he was prepared to have Malaysia taking the stimulus package from IMF? I would really want to listen to that answer from Anwar himself.

Anyhow, from above, do you notice of one of the few coincidences / American connection to Malaysia. Many UMNO / BN people blindly accused Anwar as an agent of Americans, but it is actually shown that Abdullah / BN / Musa Hassan is in connection with America / Israel (no part of the latter's connection with a Israelite-company in designing communications tools for police) it seems that many people are misleaded and the real facts are upside down, or is it?
