Barack Obama's Indirect Warning To Leaders Including BN!

I've just finished reading the entire inauguration speech by new President Barack Obama and I was drawn by a posting by Hisham Rais that says that Obama indirectly has given a warning to hypocrite third world leaders.

The exact part of Obama's text:
To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West — know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
A few weeks before inauguration, Mr. Mahathir has written a letter to Obama and not many know that Obama wrote back a reply to the old man.

Since Malaysia is considered part of the Muslim world, the part above could also cover Malaysia and the phrase "cling to silencing of dissent" rings a warning to bigots like Botak Albar and Najib Razak as well as the weeping KT VIP. Sadly though, the MSM papers didn't have the balls to quote the paragraph above because if they do, the Home Ministry could be coming down hard on them as what they do to the Herald.

Hisham Rais's musing was as follows:

President Barack Obama dalam ucapan perlantikannya malam ini telah memberi amaran kepada pemimpin-pemimpin negara yang selalu menyalahkan Barat apabila mereka sendiri gagal mentabir negara. Obama meminta mereka melihat muka mereka dalam cermin dahulu.

Amaran ini adalah untuk pemimpin negara dunia ketiga seperti Madey.

Presiden Barack Obama juga telah mengingatkan pemimpin negara-negara didunia agar tidak menyalah gunakan kuasa dan mengamal rasuah.

Amaran seperti ini adalah untuk isteri Rosmah.


  1. I just think... in my opinion, according to your logic, the message does not directed at only BN leaders (malaysian context). It also for those in the opposition because they are also considered as leaders and part of the building block of the Government of Malaysia..

  2. Asian leaders can get on a self-righteous binge once in a while, right?

    BTW, I just picked up "The Death of Cap Vol. 3: The Man Who Bought America". It's about the Red Skull putting his own candidate in the White House as the new Prez!!!

    You called me the other day?
