Open Letter to Barack Hussein Obama President

Dear Mr. President,

I did not vote for you in the Presidential Election because I am Malaysian.

But I consider myself one of your constituents because what you do or say will affect me and my country as well.

I welcome your promise to change. Certainly your country, the United States of America need a lot of changes.

That is because America and Americans have become the best hated people in the world. Even Europeans dislike your arrogance. Yet you were once admired and liked because you freed a lot of countries from conquest and subjugation.

It is the custom on New Year’s day for people to make resolutions. You must have listed your good resolutions already. But may I politely suggest that you also resolve to do the following in pursuit of Change.

  1. Stop killing people. The United States is too fond of killing people in order to achieve its objectives. You call it war, but today’s wars are not about professional soldiers fighting and killing each other. It is about killing people, ordinary innocent people by the hundreds of thousands. Whole countries will be devastated.

War is primitive, the cavemen’s way of dealing with a problem. Stop your arms build up and your planning for future wars.

  1. Stop indiscriminate support of Israeli killers with your money and your weapons. The planes and the bombs killing the people of Gaza are from you.

  2. Stop applying sanctions against countries which cannot do the same against you.

In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.

What have you achieved with this cruelty? Nothing except the hatred of the victims and right-thinking people.

  1. Stop your scientists and researchers from inventing new and more diabolical weapons to kill more people more efficiently.

  2. Stop your arms manufacturers from producing them. Stop your sales of arms to the world. It is blood money that you earn. It is un-Christian.

  3. Stop trying to democratize all the countries of the world. Democracy may work for the United States but it does not always work for other countries.

Don’t kill people because they are not democratic. Your crusade to democratize countries has killed more people than the authoritarian Governments which you overthrew. And you have not succeeded anyway.

  1. Stop the casinos which you call financial institutions. Stop hedge funds, derivatives and currency trading. Stop banks from lending non-existent money by the billions.

Regulate and supervise your banks. Jail the miscreants who made profits from abusing the system.

8 ) Sign the Kyoto Protocol and other international agreements.

  1. Show respect for the United Nations.

I have many other resolutions for change which I think you should consider and undertake.

But I think you have enough on your plate for this 2009th year of the Christian Era.

If you can do only a few of what I suggest you will be remembered by the world as a great leader. Then the United States will again be the most admired nation. Your embassies will be able to take down the high fences and razor-wire coils that surround them.

May I wish you a Happy New Year and a great Presidency.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

(Former Prime Minister of Malaysia)

This open letter might create some trouble to our country. Any comment?

Might cause the same level of trouble as an old dog barking in the neighbourhood?

pls show some respect. he is our former prime minister that bring a lor of good (and bad) to this country…

only time will tell what is the effect of his letter to the president-elect

he forgot to put TUN on the undersigned…
ohhh…so modest!

old dog still barking a’rite

ha… malaysia boleh indeed. mahathir thinks he’s qualified to “advise” obama…? what ego… rotflmao…

(On Jan 9, 2009, Rob commented on Open Letter to Barack Hussein Obama President-elect of the United States of America - this is my reply) )

Dear Rob,

  1. I hope this is your name. I am always saddened by the ignorance of the average American. Yet America is so powerful that directly or indirectly it rules the world. For a country with ignorant people to rule the world it is an unmitigated disaster.

  2. Clearly you have never been to Malaysia. But if I may say so we are not obsolete. But I admit we have only primitive weapons for our defence. You can, with a few nuclear bombs wipe our country from the surface of this earth.

  3. Sorry for the 3,000 of your innocent citizens incinerated in their place of employment. At least three of those incinerated were actually Malaysians. I understand hardly any Jews were in the building. They were not incinerated.

  4. But consider the 300,000 Vietnamese, 50,000 Afghans, 100,000 Iraqis whom you have killed. Mostly they were not soldiers. They were not working in the offices either. They were babies, schoolchildren, sick men and women in hospitals. Of course they could all be terrorists, including the babies and the schoolchildren.

  5. Who are terrorists? Are they only the suicide bombers? What about the countries, which sent their soldiers, air force, navy with tanks and guns and rocket launchers, and bomber and fighter planes to shock and awe and to kill people by the thousands. Aren’t their victims (the children, old men and women, the sick in the hospitals) terrified when they hear bombers flying above, when bombs and shells burst around them, killing their fathers and mothers, their brothers and sisters; when any time they themselves would be blown to pieces. Aren’t they terrified?

  6. If they are terrified aren’t the people who terrify them also terrorists? If you have a right to kill “terrorists” (also to detain and torture them), then they have a right to kill the terrorists who attacked and kill them and their people. I don’t like terrorism but I also don’t like terrorism by Governments. Both terrify.

  7. We are primitive of course because we defend ourselves with primitive weapons. You train your children to kill by launching rockets from a thousand miles away, bombing with planes beyond the range of the primitive guns of your victims. You don’t have to be frightened of us. But we must be frightened of the murdering bullies whom you think so highly of.

  8. Saddam had killed people and buried them in mass graves. You kill many times more Iraqis, Afghans and Vietnamese and left them unburied, to rot and to be eaten by dogs. Remember My Lai?

  9. May I know who were fed to the lions by Saddam. You must be absolutely ignorant if you are not aware how unfettered capitalism has actually destroyed your own country.

  10. Yes the United Nations is a waste of money. That is because the US prevents it from carrying out its work to restore peace and justice in this world.

  11. I think you need to go to school to improve your knowledge and understanding of what is happening around you, not American school of course because obviously they don’t teach anything beyond glorifying the genocides perpetrated by you throughout history.

Remaong, u got Rob’s reply or comment to the letter?

If got, can post?

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants the United States to weaken ourselves because he is intimidated and fearful of our more advanced society. Many countries are becoming obsolete due to advances in technology and dont know how keep up.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad pretends the United States did NOT suffer an attack on our homeland where 3000 of our innocent citizens were incinerated in their place of employment. He wants us to let dictators, governments and terrorists organize and plan their acts of evil.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants the United States to stop defending itself and to stop killing terrorists. He thinks the United States is to blame for evil in this world, and it has absolutely nothing to do with primitive cultures, archaic religions, aggressive and torturous fathers who know nothing about how to raise boys to be good and productive adults. The fact that terrorists hide behind women and children is irrelevant to him.

He wants us to stop supporting Israel, whos citizens are regularly terrorized by suicide bombers and are regularly bombed from Hamas operatives launching rockets from civilian garages.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad thinks the United States should stop punishing bad behavior and thinks we should have continued to allow Saddam Hussein kill people with poison gas and bury them in mass graves. According to him, the rape and torture rooms should still be open and people continue to be fed to the lions (after all, lions have to eat also).

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants us to stop defending ourselves with advanced technology, like missile defense systems and weapons which kill fewer civilians. He also wants the United States to end capitalism, which shares the basic human need for freedom and liberty. He does not want us to have any allies in this world that share these ideals and wants us to sign international agreements to weaken the United States and appease his anxiety over his countries weakness and incompetence. Finally, we should apparently join him in appeasement, incompetence and wasting time and money through the United Nations.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad should go back to school, perhaps in the United States, and start informing himself somewhat better.

one stupid talking to another stupid. no point for us to argue on who is more stupid.

Screw you la mahathir…you dunno jack Sh*t.

When you are at OPEC meeting you just go to the Americans like dog…dun just sit down at home and get publicity because you dunno anything.

because of the americans we are living in the free world now. americans helped us out against communism. americans helped us win world war 2 against nazi, the italians facism and the imperial japanese army. Without them we might be still under british or japanese colonial system and we still have to bow down to the brits. Mahathir you know wht? i hated you since you became the prime minister of malaysia and i hated you more when you kicked anwar out of your office. U are and idiot do you know that?

Tun Mahathir may not read our forum.

I have a suggestion, comment on his blog at http://www.chedet.cc/ :wink:

he might read it//

Just let him la… :mrgreen: everyone got freedom of speech

un-Christian?

ME ANSWERING MR. ROB

"Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants the United States to weaken ourselves because he is intimidated and fearful of our more advanced society. Many countries are becoming obsolete due to advances in technology and dont know how keep up.

This raise some questions. Why is the US so dedicated in arming itself, even to the length of producing nuclear weapons? Everybody knows that the US is a nuclear power. How come this country of freedom and democracy is very afraid of the world? Maybe the answer is in a CIA terminology, namely blowback. Consultant to the office of national estimates of the CIA between 1967 and 1974, Mr. Chalmers Johnson have a lot to say about this. Go on Mr. Rob, search the YouTube for Mr. Chalmers Johnsons talk and listen to what this fellow countrymen of yours have to say about the terminology (assuming that you consider a person who worked with the CIA as an authoritative source)[1].

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad pretends the United States did NOT suffer an attack on our homeland where 3000 of our innocent citizens were incinerated in their place of employment. He wants us to let dictators, governments and terrorists organize and plan their acts of evil.

First and foremost, Tun Mahathir had never denied that 9/11 happened. But, why are you shouting from your rooftop about September the 11th 2001, while from 47,000,000 who are not insured, about 18,000 people die in the US every year because they have no health insurance [2]. Thats six 9/11s every year. Your government excels the alleged terrorists in letting your people die, it seems.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants the United States to stop defending itself and to stop killing terrorists. He thinks the United States is to blame for evil in this world, and it has absolutely nothing to do with primitive cultures, archaic religions, aggressive and torturous fathers who know nothing about how to raise boys to be good and productive adults. The fact that terrorists hide behind women and children is irrelevant to him.

Well, about the US being one source of evil in the world, I really suggest you to hear, as I have stated in previous paragraphs, to Mr. Chalmers Johnsons talk and hear for yourself, how the US government creates evil in this world. Not to mention the death squads in Colombia [3] and Nicaragua [4].

He wants us to stop supporting Israel, whose citizens are regularly terrorized by suicide bombers and are regularly bombed from Hamas operatives launching rockets from civilian garages.

For 10 years, before the start of the current 2008/2009 massacre in Gaza, 20 Israelis were killed [5]. But, by the third week of bombardment in the Gaza strip, more than 800 were killed and over 3000 were injured [6]. And in a place where children constitute 51% [7] of the population, it is not hard to realize who suffers the most. But of course, the children of Gaza will not be terrified by this grotesque mass murder, they will only be killed.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad thinks the United States should stop punishing bad behavior and thinks we should have continued to allow Saddam Hussein kill people with poison gas and bury them in mass graves. According to him, the rape and torture rooms should still be open and people continue to be fed to the lions (after all, lions have to eat also).

Saddam…Saddam…Oh! You mean the dictator the US installed in Iraq and later hang?

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wants us to stop defending ourselves with advanced technology, like missile defense systems and weapons which kill fewer civilians. He also wants the United States to end capitalism, which shares the basic human need for freedom and liberty. He does not want us to have any allies in this world that share these ideals and wants us to sign international agreements to weaken the United States and appease his anxiety over his countries weakness and incompetence. Finally, we should apparently join him in appeasement, incompetence and wasting time and money through the United Nations.

There is no need to defend yourself from the enemy, provided that you do not create them. Now with 1,307,319 [8] killed in Iraq, do you think the Iraqis will be a friend of the US? With the US instigated coup in Venezuela in April 2002, do you honestly think the Venezuelan people will befriend the US? How about the death squads created in Nicaragua and Colombia? Will the people of these countries be friends with the US? The US had only created enemies, and that is why it is so paranoid about the rest of the world.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad should go back to school, perhaps in the United States, and start informing himself somewhat better.

But judging from your writings, Mr. Rob, I think I have to educate you.

Some contradictory proof existed as a conspiracy theory that Pearl Harbor was a deliberate set up for Roosevelt to drive America out of isolation and into the war against the Axis. The FDR as the higher ups are called, were said that they knew the Japanese were coming and they withheld information from the commanders at Pearl Harbor. It has been proven that in 1941 from declassified military papers that the American had a basic understanding on decoding Japanese Diplomatic codes and Military Navy codes, though there are a share of historian who argued that the papers were telling nothing about a basic understanding of the codes but instead about them intercepting incoming Japanese code traffic .

Secondly from the Japanese side, many Japanese military and navy were against the attack on Pearl Harbor. In fact, they were afraid that USA had the power to crush them. But the attack went on after all the discussions. The Japanese even unwittingly gave the U.S. some clues of an imminent attack in such that early warnings that could and should have tipped off U.S. forces that something was up. One example was that the first casualty of the attack was a Japanese submarine that was sunk by a U.S. destroyer one hour before the attack. This might have been reported to the U.S. Army in Oahu, which might have put the island on alert. But it didn’t happen. Such clues could have been gathered and analyzed with greater imagination and less red tape in Honolulu and Washington, D.C.

Finally, Prange laid some blame at the feet of FDR, who he believed treated Japan to lightly and whose desire to not alarm the American public of the growing crisis with Japan left the public unprepared for war.

and quote from his book.

“Pearl Harbor resulted from a vast combination of interrelated, complicated, and strange historical factors: on the one hand, bountiful human errors of great variety, false assumptions, fallacious views, a vast store of intelligence badly handled; on the other, precise planning, tireless training, fanactical dedication, iron determination, technical know-how, tactical excellence, clever deception measures, intelligence well gathered and effectively disseminated, plain guts–and uncommon luck.”

I preferred his book in this topic because he was even posted on military service overseas and in the postwar era occupation of Japan. His books were famous because he collected information from both the USA side and from the Japanese, and he did not try to explain the evidence but instead try to let the evidence explain themselves through his writings.

So the last question remain, Is America merely defending itself during WW2 and even now with the war on terror?

and to answer ur post (sry, forgot), the British and USSR would have won the war against the Nazi without US help. Nazis had less war machines and firepower than they claimed to have. All those tanks and artillery from the Nazi propaganda videos, were destroyed long before the climax of the war. After beating the Nazis there, then the British would bring its Indian Battalions and its pacific fleet to SEA and China. Did i tell u the only reason why the Japanese could conquer SEA and China in the 1st place was that the British had extremely limited war machines in SEA, in fact, its countable with ur two hands. While the Japanese were better equipped for war than their British counterparts in the SEA occupational war. If the British fleet came over, Japan would have lost long ago, providing USSR are true to their agreement and come to our rescue too.

I think u forgot something la brother, we GOT our independence from the British, it was already a time for decolonization then and sooner or later they have to let us go.

Yes we got our independence from british and who were we fighting then? Malayan Communist and who helped and equip our Fuc*ed up guerrillas? the americans ok…ok come on you know what i am talking about…they are against communist that time…and are you tryin to teach me history?

nop… the top part was not directed at u at all. I do hope u did not misunderstood that part for it was for the topic, yes, the topic

Communism by Karl Marx wasn’t a bad thing at all, it’s the ppl who tried implementing it who are bad at it. Karl idealized a balance society where the government would exist as a fair just medium for the people.

Did u forget how USA turned every civil war into a bloody war of international proportions? While we were trying to raze down the wall of Berlin and unite the world, they were trying to build more around the world.

While we were trying to end dictatorship and install democracy, they were installing more all over the world.

And now their so called ‘war on terror’ is actually wiping up the mess they made as well.

No, I’m not teaching u history, I’m presenting u facts, and unless ur a vivid supported of the Nazi party, i dun see why u should act offended, cool down brother! end of the day oso ntg could be done to alter what the US did and are doing.
