The Empire Strikes Back

Paklah strikes back, truth be told, kind of nice to see the PM defending and/or striking back at what he thought matters the most.

Waiting in anticipation, The Return Of The Jedi, no doubt. As they say, all is fair in love and war!

Synopsis of the actual movie* ...the irony of it all:-

The film is set three years after the destruction of the Death Star. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia Organa are being pursued by Darth Vader and the elite forces of the Galactic Empire. While Han and Leia are chased across space by the Empire, Luke studies the Force under Jedi Master Yoda. Vader is secretly plotting a trap for Luke that will lead to a vicious confrontation and a shocking revelation.
The Star Online, today, reported:
Dr M responsible for poor state of judiciary: PM (updated)
KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has hit out at Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Datuk Seri Razaleigh Hamzah and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for their criticism of his leadership.
"There is no stopping (Dr Mahathir's) slew of accusations. He claims there is no freedom of media. Does he not remember that during his time, he asked the media to 'block out' stories and photos of (former Prime Minister) Tun Hussein Onn and not give coverage to certain people.
"As for Operasi Lalang, don't forget who's responsible," he said, in reference to the 1987 crackdown in which over 100 people were arrested under the Internal Security Act for purportedly causing racial tension and posing a threat to national security.
On the judiciary, Abdullah said the problems did not start during his era.
Abdullah, who is the Umno president was speaking to reporters after giving a briefing to Umno grassroots leaders at PWTC over the party's performance in the general election.
On Razaleigh's recent open criticism of his leadership, Abdullah said the Gua Musang MP should take a good look at himself.
"He was the reason Barisan lost Kelantan to PAS in the first place," he said, adding that the Kelantan leader had done nothing to win the state back.
On former deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who was sacked from the party in 1998 and was trying to make a political comeback, Abdullah said Anwar could wait all he liked.
"He may be the Prime Minister-in-waiting but I'm the leader of today," he stressed.
He also pointed out that when Anwar was the country's number two he (Anwar) too tried to control the media in terms of what came out on TV and in print.

Apa lah yang tengah berlaku sekarang ni. Kadang kadang bila baca paper, I wonder what is really going through the mind of Pak Lah.

Kesian, betul. The more I think about it, the more I feel kesian for Pak Lah. Bukan aje political side nak kena jaga, sampai bini sendiri pun orang dah question jugak.

You wonder does he not have a team to answer for this or at least to control what is going out or to answer to some of this things. Entahlah.

Aku kesian sampai tak jadi nak give my real comments. So, let's all watch football tonight and come out with comments tomorrow when the brain is out of the weekend mode.

true, bro ausrin... aku felt for the guy too masa tengok dia dlm tv3 news just now.. but let's face it, he thought he could lead the nation by remote control.. this is the consequences & this is beyond repair.. & the only thing they are doing now is just keep on rebooting the current OS, instead of upgrading to the latest or at the very least do a complete re-installation of the current OS...

Zed,

The time is right. It's all about who gets what, when and how. What has been answered. When still not clear and how can be planned out. The time is now....

Kipe, what do you think? Anak proton pun sounds catchy. Can run with the people. Backing sikit dari Pak Deris, well, worth thinking about. Anak cikgu, cikgu Adnan, well, it has been tried and tested. Not as strong as anak Tun Razak but it works.... Every little bit counts.

TIME FOR CHANGE, and......

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS....
