"I promised not to interfere in politics... and
I have not said anything about many things done which were wrong.
"But this is the limit ... "I cannot go to war ... I have no power."
Mahathir said he had kept quiet on so many things which were done wrong, and he said nothing. Now, he tak boleh tahan lagi, because the wrong is beyond his tolerance.
"The issue had nothing to do with UMNO disunity and was about [my]self-[need] respect."
Asked why he had not given his recent open letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi instead of distributing it to Umno members, Dr Mahathir said:
"I did not write the letter to him. What for? Even if I talk to you (the media), it won’t see the light of day in the papers. "Even if I were to give it to you to publish, you will not do it. "Even if you do, Kalimullah will chop it," he said, referring to New Straits Times Press deputy chairman and editorial adviser Datuk Kalimullah Hassan.
"I am unhappy only when you kowtow [not to me]."
So, Mahathir also found Kalimullah is the chopper, terminator, and ball-carrier. But this man also carried Mahathir's ball too?
To Mahathir, "they bite the hands that had fed them [before]."
Can Najib please stand up?
