Cancellation of bridge to Singapore


(VERSI BAHASA MALAYSIA DI AKHIR ARTIKEL INI)

I have been asked to please expose all that I know about the misuse of the Rakyat’s money.

In response to the above request I would like to identify initially four of the instances where the Government of Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has misused public money.

What I write here would not be based on speculation or suppositions or possibilities. They are the things which are public knowledge and can be verified.

I need to explain in detail. So I will deal with one subject at a time.

However, I list below the four specific instances;

1. The cancellation of the bridge to replace the Malaysian part of the Johore Causeway

2. The postponement of the double-tracking and electrification of the railway line from Johor Baru to Padang Besar

3. The sale of M.V. Agusta for one Euro

4. Wang Ehsan which has been expended on Terengganu which the new Menteri Besar claims is not Wang Ehsan but Federal Fund.

Cancellation of the Bridge to Singapore

The Singapore Government had not objected to the building of the Malaysian bridge to replace the Malaysian half of the causeway.

This bridge would be 25 metres above the water to allow for small ships to pass through after removal of the Malaysian half of the causeway. The Second Link is also 25 meters above the water surface. So the vessels can pass through the Tebrau Straits without obstruction by the causeway.

This bridge is very essential as the traffic in Johor Baru has increased and there is a permanent traffic jam caused by the North-South flow to and from the causeway and the East-West flow between the Eastern and Western parts of Johor Baru. An elevated road is needed to be built above the East-West traffic for access to and from the causeway. Such a road would result in a part of the Johor end of the causeway becoming useless as the elevated road must land some distance from where the causeway joins the mainland.

A full-length bridge to Singapore would enable a gradual rise for lorries to climb and boats to pass underneath after the causeway is removed. Since Singapore refused to jointly construct a straight bridge to replace the causeway, a bridge with 25 meters clearance for boats to pass has got to be long enough for lorries to make a gradual climb.

The answer was to lengthen the bridge by a curved design. As for the railway line a swing bridge can be opened or closed for ships or trains to pass through.

To cut a long story short work on the curved bridge was stopped so that Dato Seri Abdullah’s Government could offer to sell 1 billion cubic metres of sand, and overflight rights for Singapore military aircraft over Johor Baru if Singapore agreed to a straight bridge.

Someone stood to make a lot of money selling 50 million cubic metres of sand per year for 20 years to Singapore for land reclamation. This was a very attractive offer as the reclaimed land can sell for 3,000-5,000 Singapore dollars (about RM6,000-RM10,000) per square metre. The Singapore Government stood to make an enormous amount of money selling this land.

They therefore agreed to the straight bridge. That dredging sand from the seabed would cause erosion of the coast, destruction of fish breeding grounds and deprive Johore fishermen of their livelihood were not of concern to the Government of Dato Seri Abdullah.

Fortunately the Johor people misbehaved.

They objected to selling sand and overflights.

Abdullah frustrated that his scheme was blocked then punished the Johore people by cancelling the bridge project altogether. No straight bridge, no curve bridge either.

The result is that more than RM1 billion have been wasted building the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities, foundation and work on a new railway station, pilings and preliminary works on the road linking the CIQ to the bridge and compensations to the contractors because of the cancellation of the projects.

The CIQ building is now a white elephant, unused and yet have to be maintained costing hundreds of thousands of Ringgit a month.

Clearly Dato Seri Abdullah has wasted public money. All because he was angry with the Johor people for not enabling one billion cubic metres of sand to be sold to Singapore and the profits thereof.

*****

Pembatalan Jambatan Bengkok

Saya diminta membongkar apa yang saya tahu berkenaan salah guna wang rakyat.

Untuk permulaan saya senaraikan empat tindakan dimana Kerajaan Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi telah salahgunakan wang rakyat. Apa yang saya tulis di sini tidak berasas kepada spekulasi, kemungkinan atau kebarangkalian.

Perkara ini diketahui umum dan boleh disahkan Saya perlu beri penjelasan terperinci. Jadi saya akan bincangkan satu persatu.

Bagaimanapun saya senaraikan empat perkara spesifik;

1. Pembatalan pembinaan jambatan menggantikan tambak Johor di sebelah Malaysia

2. Penangguhan landasan berkembar dan rel elektrik daripada Johor Baru ke Padang Besar

3. Penjualan M.V. Agusta untuk satu Euro

4. Wang Ehsan yang dibelanjakan untuk Terengganu yang mana Menteri Besar yang baru mendakwa adalah bukan Wang Ehsan tetapi daripada dana Kerajaan Persekutuan.

Pembatalan pembinaan jambatan ke Singapura

Kerajaan Singapura tidak membantah pembinaan jambatan untuk menggantikan tambak di sebelah Malaysia.

Jambatan ini akan dibina 25 meter daripada paras permukaan air untuk benar kapal-kapal kecil lalu setelah separuh tambak di sebelah Malaysia di pecah.

Link Kedua juga berada di paras 25 meters daripada paras permukaan air. Jadi kapal-kapal boleh melalui Selat Tebrau tanpa terhalang oleh tambak. Jambatan ini penting kerana jumlah trafik di Johor Baru telah meningkat dan kesesakan lalulintas merupakan perkara harian disebabkan laluan Utara-Selatan yang datang dan pergi melalui tambak dan trafik Timur-Barat di antara bahagian-bahagian Timur dan Barat Johor Baru.

Jalan bertingkat perlu dibina menyeberangi trafik Timur-Barat untuk laluan dari dan ke tambak. Jalan ini akan menyebabkan penghujung tambak di sebelah Johor tidak boleh digunakan kerana jalan bertingkat hanya boleh mendarat pada satu jarak tertentu jauh daripada tempat tambak bertemu dengan tanah besar.

Jika jambatan penuh ke Singapura dibangunkan cerun boleh dilandaikan untuk memudahkan lori mendaki dan bot-bot kecil melalui di bawahnya setelah tambak dipecahkan.

Kerana Singapura tidak mahu sama-sama membina jambatan penuh untuk gantikan tambak, jambatan setinggi 25 meter untuk benarkan bot-bot lalu dibawahnya mesti mempunyai kepanjangan yang mencukupi untuk benarkan lori mendaki secara beransur.

Penyelesaiannya ialah untuk memanjangkan jambatan dengan rekabentuk melengkung (kemudiannya dipanggil jambatan bengkok). Bagi landasan keretapi pula, jambatan ayun yang boleh dibuka dan tutup untuk benarkan kapal atau keretapi lalu.

Untuk memendekkan cerita, kerja pembinaan jambatan bengkok dihentikan untuk membolehkan Kerajaan Dato Seri Abdullah menjual 1 billion meter padu pasir dan hak laluan terbang pesawat tentera Singapura melintasi Johor Baru jika Singaura bersetuju membina jambatan lurus.

Ada orang yang akan mengaut untung banyak menjual 50 juta meter padu pasir setahun selama 20 tahun untuk Singapura menambak tanah. Ini satu tawaran menarik kerana tanah yang ditambak boleh dijual antara 3,000-5,000 Dolar Singapura (kira-kira RM6,000-RM10,000) sekaki persegi.

Kerajaan Singapura boleh buat banyak duit menjual tanah ini. Lalu merekapun menyetujui cadangan jambatan lurus ini.

Bahawa mengorek pasir dari dasar laut boleh sebabkan hakisan pantai, kemusnahan tempat pembiakan ikan dan kehilangan mata pencarian bagi nelayan negeri Johor tidak pun diambil prihatin oleh Kerajaan Dato Seri Abdullah.

Mujurlah rakyat Johor membantah penjualan pasir dan hak laluan pesawat terbang. Abdullah yang kecewa kerana perancangannya terhalang menghukum rakyat Johor dengan membatal sama sekali projek jambatan. Tidak ada jambatan lurus mahupun bengkok.

Hasilnya lebih daripada RM1 billion telah dibazirkan yang dibelanjakan untuk membina kemudahan kompleks Kastam, Imigresen dan Kuarantin, kerja-kerja membina stesen keretapi baru dan kerja-kerja awal untuk bina jalan menghubung kompleks KIK dan jambatan serta bayaran pampasan kepada kontraktor disebabkan pembatalan projek-projek berkenaan.

Kompleks KIK kini menjadi gajah putih, terbiar tetapi terpaksa di selenggarakan dengan memakan belanja beratus ribu Ringgit sebulan. Jelas sekali Dato Seri Abdullah telah bazirkan duit rakyat hanya kerana beliau marah dengan rakyat Johor yang halang penjualan satu bilion meter padu pasir kepada Singapura dan keuntungan yang bakal diraih oleh pihak tertentu.

Di zaman Rasullulah pemimpin susah dahulu sebelum rakyat susah. Pemimpin berjimat dahulu baru lah rakyat berjimat. Tapi di zaman Islam hadhari yang imam besarnya bernama Dollah, rakyat harus susah dan mati dahulu dan pemimpin akan bertambah kaya dan senang. Ini lah islam hadhari.

He should think again about his anger on us, citizens of Johor. BN would had easily crumbled had it not been for Johor. How on earth can you allow sell your sand to Singapore ?? Plus, giving the rights to fly our skies ?? This is ridiculous and pathetic.

Dear Tun,

Can I humbly and sincerely appealing to you that to become our Prime Minister once again because you are the only one can lead the whole nation out of this unprecedented mess.

Tun, I really miss your leadership and I believe the whole nation is in the mode of regretful and blink because of the incapability of the present government.

Tun, I bless you with all that I have for your longest life ever and to lambaste the current government for their insanity and regressing policy.

Tun, I will be standing by you and giving you my full support.

God bless you and your family.

Assalamualaikum Tun,

I pray and hoping ALLAH will give Tun an excellent health and peace of mind so that we could share and understand Tun’s thoughts and point of views.

I believe Tun’s revelations give us excellent alternative views toward any issue that normally champion by the oppositions.

As a general citizen, I would be very please if Tun could share with us Tun’s views on some of agreements between the concessionaires and the government. The agreements which the oppositions claim are very one sided such as;

1) Highway Concessionaire like the one between PLUS and the Government
2) Independent Power Providers (IPP) like YTL Power and the Government, which many parties claim these IPP have sucked our petroleum subsidies for their millions of Ringgit profits if not billions.
3) And many other agreements which Tun could come across (the other readers could suggest if they have one!)

I believe these agreements were penned down when Tun was in power. And, I understand most of the information on the agreements are classified under OSA. But maybe, Tun could come up in a way that Tun will not wallop by Pak Lah under OSA.

My hopes of discussing these agreements are;

1) Is there any truth of all the claims that they are one sided agreements? One for all, we could at least understand the facts.
2) If the fact of sided agreement is true, perhaps the discussion will help on how the responsible citizens like Dato’ Mukhriz could highlight the Government and come out with constructive recommendations to amend the agreements in order to minimize the burdens of normal citizen like us. It is a pain in the ass to pay “an always increased toll, every year” since at the end of their closing business year, they declare hundreds of millions Ringgit profits.
3) If indeed these agreements were not supposed to be penned down in a way now, perhaps Tun could also comes up with the ideas to correct the one sided agreement – for the sake of normal citizens like us.

And, I still believe Tun is the most rightful person to dig out these agreements as all happened during Tun in power.

We love you Tun.

Wassalam.

If tun didnt make this blog posts, I guess most of us still dont know what are exactly happened on Malaysia since most of the newspaper articles now are unreliable :)

I really disappointed to Pak Lah's actions. He make me feel like he took Malaysia as a monopoly games. Like he can do what every he want without thinking about Malaysians' rights. How selfish he is!!!!

Turun-lah Pak LAH! give the throne to whom got the ability to give us a bright future Malaysia . Malaysia is not belong to you/someone close to you only . Malaysia is for all Malaysian!!!!!!

Hi Tun

Talking about misused of public money perhaps you, as our prime minister for the past 22 years, can now suggest that the accounts of Petronas be tabled in Parliament and make them public from the day of their commencement of business until now.

Let the public see for themselves how much our country has earned from our oil and how the money are spent.

What say you, tun?

Ayahnda Tun,

Sekarang baru anaknda tahu kenapa DS Abdullah mengambil TINDAKAN TIDAK POPULAR ini, terima kasih Ayahnda Tun di atas pendedahan ini.

Tun Yang Dikasihi,

Pembatalan Kedua-dua Jambatan itu bukan saja membazir wang negara malah menyusahkan penduduk-penduduk Johor. Mengapa membatalkan projek-projek ini sedangkan ianya akan memanfaatkan penduduk-penduduk Johor.

Beberapa Tahun ini, kami kesemua rakyat Malaysia telah pun memberikan sepenuh sokongan kita kepada Pak Lah tetapi apakah yang beliau lakukan untuk kami? Beliau bukan sahaja tidak membantu dan menjaga kami, sebaliknya membuat beberapa keputusan-keputusan yang memudaratkan kami semua.

Sebagai contoh, pembatalan Projek-Projek yang penting, tidak mengawal harga-harga makanan yang sentiasa naik, menaikkan harga minyak dengan maksimumnya, membantu Khairy Jamaludin yang sememangnya tidak layak menjadi pemimpin untuk menjadi MP, kekalahan BN yang paling teruk dalam sejarah Malaysia, tidak mahu meletakkan jawatannya sebagai presiden UMNO dan PM dimana peluang itu boleh diberikan kepada kepada orang-orang yang lebih berkaliber, gagal menjaga semua Parti-Parti BN seperti MIC, UMNO, Gerakan, MCA dengan baik, kenaikan harga Tol, Perbelanjaan wang yang untuk membeli senjata-senjata yang tidak diperlukan oleh kami.

Kesemua ini bukannya kebetulan. Kami sudah tidak tahu macam mana nak dikatakan kepada Pak Lah lagi. Sepatutnya beliau meletakkan jawatannya dan memilih calon yang berkaliber untuk meyelamakan BN tetapi Pak Lah kita ini sentiasanya tidak tahu mengakui kesilapannya.

Sebagai contohnya, semasa BN kalah 2/3 majoriti, beliau berkata "Kita masih menang". Kami, rakyat biasa pun tahu.. BN sudah kalah dengan teruknya.. Semasa harga Petrol naik, beliau pula berkata "Harga Minyak kita masih paling rendah" sedangkan kami pun sudah hampir mati disebabkan oleh Harga minyak yang naik.

Saya hanya rasa hanya membazir masa kami sahaja untuk menasihati beliau. Saya hanya harap jangan sampai kerajaan negara jatuh ke tangan PR. Masa itu, nama beliau akan tercemar.

Tun, kami sentiasa mengingati pemerintahan Tun yang sehingga kini tiada seorang PM yang dapat menyandingi Tun. Kami sentiasa menyokong Tun walaupun Tun tidak dalam pemerintahan. Jangan risau kerana Tun bukan sendirian.

Dear Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, it is clear that Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in terms of his decision making can bring Malaysians and Malaysia down faster than any other leader can. I have thus far listed 20, since the Malaysian 12th General Election.

We know that this list is growing, daily. I keep this as a record so that we shall know how many destructive decisions Abdullah Ahmad Badawi shall continue to make soon, before he prefers to step down later.

Your post on the "Cancellation of bridge to Singapore" by Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is but a telling, that he is a man who can be devastating in terms of decision making, since before, and 2006 in particular.

Here is a bit of information to our refreshing of recollection and reflection on Abdullah Ahmad Badawi decision making:

KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 (Bernama) -- The government has
decided to stop the construction of the bridge to replace the Johor Causeway that links Malaysia and
Singapore, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced Wednesday.

He said the government had also decided to stop all negotiations pertaining to the bridge.

Construction of the bridge, also known as the "scenic bridge" began
early this year, to replace half of the Johor Causeway on the Malaysian side.

"The government's decision was made after taking into account the voices and sentiments of the Malaysian people as a whole especially on the supply of sand and air space," he said in a one-paragraph statement.

Surely Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is not blind, yet dumb as he truly is, some Malaysians are wondering as to why other leaders and ministers can either keep quiet, or arrange words in much cognitive dissonance to support decisions he made.

Pembatalan Jambatan Bengkok merupakan satu kerugian besar kepada rakyat dan negara. Jika ia dilaksanakan sudah tentu projek ini bertindak sebagai sumber baru ekonomi negara.Penjualan bekalan air mentah ke Singapura turut perlu dikaji semula (dinaikkan) sesuai dengan keadaan semasa dlm mempertingkatkan sumber pendapatan negara. Ini penting kerana stok petroleum negara akan habis suatu hari nanti. Jadi alternatif perlu dijana manfaatnya demi kesejahteraan Malaysia. Ini sedikit-sebanyak dapat meringankan bebanan hidup rakyat ketika ini akibat kenaikan harga minyak baru-baru yang berpontensi besar membawa kepada inflasi.

hanson said...

Tun yang disanjungi,

Sejak pembatalan jambatan oleh AAB, saya terasa sangat malu. Seolah-olah kita telah kehilangan maruah kepada Singapura. Sejak itu juga nampak sangat kelemahan Pak Lah.

Pada ketika itu juga ramai yang mengambil kesempatan atas kelemahan beliau.Hari ini nampak sangat "kebodohan-kebodohan" yang telah beliau lakukan. Namun masih ada juga talam dua muka yang hanya tahu angguk-angguk.

Kepada Pak Lah, sedar lah diri tuu...Lihat lah apa yang Pak Lah telah lakukan terhadap negara ini. Berundur lah secara terhormat. Jangan biarkan kami jadi biadab terhadap Pak Lah. Kepada yang kaki angguk tuu.. beri lah beliau nasihat..tegurlah kesilapan beliau..jadilah bangsa yang berguna kepada negara ini. tq.

Nice to meet TUN DR.MAHATIR
and bloggers again.

I do have high respect for SINGAPORE government  for their efficiency in administration
all this while,but I do not understand why they refused to this idea when the new bridge is mean to ease traffic congestion , to bring prosperity to both sides , and to protect ecology system, this ideal is wonderful based on logical and scientific
decision.The causeway build during the colonial time does not serve these purposes well. The ideal which is a win win case.Why should they reject,is it because of their PRIDE in HOKKEAN "驚輸”(KIASU)。

Allow me to deviate from this topic
and comment on your great contribution to Malaysia Economy
based on some data available to me

"Di Malaysia, Petronas mempunyai tiga loji penapis minyak dengan jumlah keupayaan 256,000 tong sehari atau 47 peratus daripada jumlah keluaran negara. Baki sebanyak 53 peratus disumbang oleh loji penapisan minyak yang dimiliki oleh Shell (155,000 tong sehari), Exxon-Mobil (88,000 tong sehari) dan Conoco Philips (48,000 tong sehari). Oleh kerana Malaysia menggunakan 520,000 tong sehari, ini bermakna negara turut bergantung kepada loji penapisan minyak milik syarikat antarabangsa untuk memenuhi keperluan."
If not because of your good decision ,I think our depence on foreign on refined oil will be even greater,eventhough TUN may be controversial,I still give you more than 90marks out of 100.Terima kasih Kepada kerana membawa kemakmuran kepada Malaysia dan Singapura kerana berani memperkembangan perniagan Petronas.Terima kasih juga kepada orang yang meihamkan Pembentukan Petronas.
Yang Ikhlas GOHHOEHOE

salam, tun.. mengapa tun mengatakan pasir tak dijual kepada singapura sedangkan setiap hari saya tengok beribu lori yang membawa anak batu, batu bata dan pasir kasar. setiap hari saya menyeberang tambak dan melihat berduyung2 lori pasir yg bersesak dgn kenderaan lain. setiap jam beratus lori,, cuba bayangkn brapa banyak pasir yg di angkut sehari, setahun dan seterusnya. jika nk bandingkan pulau batu putih,, lagi besar pulau singapura yg terbentuk drp pasir yg diangkut setiap hari oleh lori pasir tersebut,, sekian terima kasih..

rocksoul67 said...

Salam Tun,
Lagi pendedahan yg membuka mata kami..teruskan!!
Saya nampak apa yg berlaku sejurus Tun melepaskan jawatan,menerusi tindak tanduk k'jaan adalah lebih memihak kpd AI utk merencanakan rancangan agungnya.
AAB hanyalah kuda tunggangan AI dan
KJ serta yg sewaktu dgnnya merupakan anjing-anjing AI.
Saya nampak AAB melakukan segala yg dibantah rakyat berdasarkan nasihat s/usaha sulit politik & kewangannya yg memang mahu menjahanamkan negara & meranapkan UMNO supaya rakyat menyokong pembangkang yg akan diketuai AI.
Ini adalah muslihat politik yg amat MERUGIKAN negara & bangsa. Ia merupakan hasrat yg sudah lama terpendam & bakal membuahkan hasil setelah merancang sekian lama.
Siapa ini "AI" yg SEBENAR-BENARNYA?
Saya teramat sangat mengharap agar Tun mendedahkan segala butiran ttg makhluk perosak ini supaya rakyat tidak terus bertanya-tanya tentang
rasional Tun mengenepikannya. Saya tahu bahawa adalah sikap kaum melayu untuk tidak menonjolkan perkara yg boleh memalukan seseorang. TETAPI ini sudah lebeyyy. Ceritakan ttg peranan Nala
dlm industri perfileman di Tivolli Villa yg dibintangi beberapa org yg
kurang terkenal bersama bintang utamanya! Ceritakan ttg bagaimana isteri bintang ini pernah beberapa kali melarikan diri meminta bantuan setelah diterajang apabila
'bersuara' membantah tingkah laku suaminya. Itu dulu,kini si isteri pula menjadi pemimpin pembangkang yg memperjuangkan suaminya!
Melayu mudah lupa! Adakah kita mahukan perwatakan sedemikian menjadi pemimpin kita? Mana moral & agama kita? Sehinggakan hendak tinggalkan anak bini utk keluar bekerja pun kita was was.
Segala bab nak jaga apanama maruah seharusnya sudah lama diketepikan DEMI KEPENTINGAN negara tercinta.
"YAHUDI=SINGAPURA=KALIMULLAH=KJ=AI"
Saya tak letak AAB sekali sbb saya percaya beliau masih tidak sedar apa yg sedang berlaku. Jangan tunggu sehingga terlewat. Kalau AAB
sayangkan negara, letak jawatan sekarang!

Assalamualaikum ayahanda Tun,

I'm so proud of you. Now it's an open secret of the vested interest of AAB, the bridge is crooked but the idea is straight forward approach in maintaining and sustaining our sovereignty, alas, the malas pm thinks otherwise, this is the golden opportunity at the expense of the rakyat to harvest profit, not realizing that sooner or later everything will be exposed. Great work from Tun,ong live tun

Tun, terima kasih diatas penjelasan yang membuka minda kami tentang situasi politik 'kepentingan' negara.

Maka jelaslah kini, Malaysia diibaratkan sebuah laman. pemimpinnya diibaratkan lembu dan orang-orang dibawahnya diibaratkan lalang. Lalang cuma akan bertiup bila ada angin dan ia terlalu mengharapkan ganjaran dari lembu (tahi lembu) untuk menyuburkan dirinya. lembu tak tahu apa-apa selain makan dan berak. Lalang pula tak kisahlah dapat tahi ataupun dimakan lembu, janji dia akan hidup subur untuk dimakan lembu.

YABhg Tun,

The intentions to sell sand to S'pore did not stop there, the export of sand and gravel to singapore went unchecked since early last year Tun! I would like to reproduce the posting by Kuda-Kepang on this issue and the exporting of the same goes on until this very minute! (hopefully Datuk Ron permit me to reproduce his postings):-

Haramkan Segera Eksport Batu
Dan Debu Kuari Ke Singapura

Ruhanie Ahmad

Pendedahan blog ini sejak dua bulan yang lalu mengenai aktiviti pengeksportan batu pejal dan debu kuari dari Negeri Sembilan dan Selangor ke Singapura terbukti benar – bukan ura-ura, bukan fitnah dan bukan pembohongan.

Hari ini, sumber-sumber blog ini memberikan nama-nama syarikat pembekal bahan berkenaan yang beroperasi di Malaysia dan juga nama-nama syarikat pembelinya di Singapura. Juga didedahkan adalah anggaran jumlah yang dieksport setiap hari, bilangan tongkang pengangkutnya, jeti perlepasannya, harga pembeliannya, dan anggaran keuntungannya.

Beberapa syarikat tempatan kini terbukti mengeksport sejumlah 35,000 metrik ton batu pejal (granite) dan debu kauri (quarry dust) sehari, dari Negeri Sembilan dan Selangor ke Singapura, dengan nilai harian dianggarkan RM4 juta, sejak Mac 2007.

Ini bermakna, secara hitung panjang, sekurang-kurangnya 3,150,000 metrik ton bahan-bahan berkenaan dengan nilai RM252 juta, telah dieksportkan dari pantai barat Malaysia Semenanjung ke Singapura, sejak tiga bulan yang lalu.

Jumlah di atas tidak termasuk eksport bahan-bahan yang sama dari Muar, Batu Pahat dan Melaka, seperti yang dilaporkan menerusi ruangan forum http://www.mykmu.net/. Portal berkenaan juga memaparkan gambar-gambar beberapa buah tongkang yang sarat dengan batu pejal dan debu kuari dari Muar yang dipercayai sedang dalam perjalanan menuju ke Singapura.

Hong Leong

Sumber-sumber blog ini berkata, sebuah daripada syarikat terbabit di Negeri Sembilan dikenali sebagai Sungai Rambai Angkut Sdn. Bhd. (PT5551), beralamat di Jalan Klang-Banting Batu 13, Kampung Sungai Rambai, 42600 Jenjarom, Selangor. Syarikat ini kini mengeksport 15,000 metrik tan bahan-bahan berkenaan ke Singapura setiap hari, dengan menggunakan tiga buah tongkang, menerusi jeti di Lukut, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. Bahan-bahan tersebut dikatakan diperolehi daripada kuari di Nilai.

Beberapa syarikat lagi yang namanya masih sedang dalam siasatan, mengkesport sejumlah 35,000 metrik tan bahan-bahan yang sama ke Singapura setiap hari, dengan menggunakan tujuh buah tongkang, menerusi jeti di Morib dan Pulau Carey, Selangor. Bahan-bahan tersebut dikatakan diperolehi daripada kuari di sekitar Jugra.

Sumber-sumber yang sama juga berkata, keseluruhan bahan-bahan di atas dijual kepada dua syarikat di Singapura dengan harga RM80.00 satu metrik tan. Seluruh pembekal terbabit dari Malaysia pula dipercayai mengaut keuntungan bersih sebanyak RM25.00 setiap metrik tan. Bagaimanapun, masih belum diketahui berapakah harga pasaran bahan-bahan berkenaan yang dikenakan kepada pembelinya di Singapura.

Satu daripada syarikat yang kini membeli batu pejal dan debu kuari Malaysia di Singapura adalah Sing Lian Huat Sand Quarry Pte. Ltd., No. 19, Simon Road, Singapore 545904. Untuk maklumat lanjut mengenai syarikat ini, sila klik link berikut:

http://dir.bca.gov.sg/bca/CompanyDetail.asp?CoType=All&ID=199000234N

Satu lagi syarikat pembeli di Singapura adalah Hong Leong Asia Ltd. yang memiliki dan mengoperasikan PT Kariumn Granite – sebuah kauri batu pejal terbesar di Asia Tenggara, di Pulau Karimun, Indonesia. Bahan-bahan daripada kuari ini dibekalkan untuk kerja-kerja tebusguna tanah di Singapura. Bahagian bahan binaan Hong Leong Asia Ltd. beroperasi di No. 43 Sungei Kadut Street 4, Singapore 729061. Untuk maklumat selanjutnya sila klik link berikut:

http://www.hlasia.com.sg/
www.hlcorp.com.sg/hlatest/hlanew/contact.htm

Indonesia

Bagaimanapun, sejak kerajaan Indonesia mengharamkan pengeksportan pasir, batu pejal, debu kuari dan lain-lain bahan “hydraulic fill” ke Singapura baru-baru ini, pembekal-pembekal di republik itu pun mencari bahan-bahan berkenaan daripada sumber-sumber lain, khususnya dari Malaysia. Juga diberitakan bahawa bekalan bahan-bahan yang sama kini dikatakan diperolehi dari Mynmar dan Vietnam.

Sumber-sumber blog ini juga berkata, aktiviti-aktiviti eksport batu pejal dan debu kuari dari Ngeri Sembilan dan Selangor kini dipercayai diselaraskan oleh seorang warga Singapura yang memandu kenderaan Mercedes Benz berwarna silver dengan nombor pendaftaran 350 SBZ 91 B.

Seperti yang didedahkan oleh blog ini pada 10 pada Mei 2007, dengan jodol Eksport Batu Ke Singapura Dilesenkan Oleh Kerjaan? dan pada 9 Mei 2007, dengan jodol Eksport Pasir Ke Singapura Haram, Eksport Batu Dan Debu Kuari Halal?, aktiviti-aktiviti eksport dari Malaysia ini adalah dilesenkan oleh MITI.

Hakikat ini mengundang pelbagai tanda tanya dan cadangan. Antaranya adalah seperti berikut:

Mengapakah MITI tidak mengkategorikan batu pejal dan debu kuari sebagai bahan asas yang diperlukan untuk kerja-kerja tebusguna pantai di Singapura? Persoalan ini timbul kerana aktiviti tebusguna pantai secara “hydraulic fill” bukan sahaja memerlukan pasir, malahan batu pejal, debu kuari serta pasir berlumpur sebagai bahan utamanya.

Oleh itu, jika pengharaman eksport ke Singapura untuk bahan tebusguna tanah yang dikuatkuasakan oleh MITI hari ini hanya tertumpu kepada pasir, maka komponen lain untuk “hydraulic fill” – batu pejal, debu kuari dan pasir berlumpur – juga mesti segera di haramkan.

Hydraulic Fill

Adakah kerajaan Malaysia tidak berpendapat bahawa sekarang merupakan waktu terbaik untuk mengkaji semula istilah “hydraulic fill” ini supaya merangkumi batu pejal dan debu kuari yang diperlukan untuk kerja-kerja tebusguna tanah di Singapura dan sekaligus mengharamkan pengeksportannya?

Adakah kerjaan Malaysia akan terus membisu dan sekaligus menyumbang kepada pembesaran Singapura – sekali ganda saiznya hari ini – dalam tempoh 20 hingga 30 tahun akan datang?

Adakah kerajaan Malaysia sedar bahawa pemerintah Indonesia kini sedang mengkaji semula istilah “hydraulic fill” ini supaya merangkumi batu pejal dan debu kuari? Untuk Maklumat lanjut, harap klik di sini: http://www.todayonline.com/articles/176927.asp

Atau, adakah kerajaan Malaysia sanggup berhadapan dengan masalah sempadan laut tidak lama lagi akibat daripada kerja-kerja tebusguna tanah di Singapura yang menggunakan komponen “hydraulic fill” dari Malaysia?

Bagaimana jika Mahkamah Keadilan Antarabangsa (ICJ) kelak memutuskan yang Pulau Batu Putih adalah milik Singapura, dan berikutnya, pantai pulau itu pula ditebusguna menggunakan bahan-bahan “hydraulic fill” dari Malaysia? Tidakkah akibatnya adalah sempadan Malaysia-Singapura jadi berubah – semakin mendekati pantai Malaysia? Tidakkah ini berbahaya kepada keselamatan negara?

Kedaulatan

Tidakkah penerusan eksport batu pejal dan debu kuari ke Singapura, pada perkiraan akhirnya, akan menjejaskan kedaulatan Malaysia? Tidakkah Malaysia berhak untuk segera mengharamkan eksport bahan-bahan tersebut yang sedang rancak ketika ini?

Blog ini, www.mayaputera.blogspot.com, shar101.blogspot.com dan mykmu.net telah beberapa kali merungkai soalan-soalan di atas. Tetapi, oleh kerana bloggers secara amnya dilabelkan sebagai “liars” dan “penabur fitnah” maka perungkaian ini hanya disifatkan sebagai usaha memburuk-burukkan kerajaan mutakhir.

Singapura kini memerlukan pasir dan lain bahan binaan bukan sahaja untuk tebusguna tanah. Tetapi juga untuk pembinaan, khususnya sebuah kasino di Sentosa Island.

Sebagai penutup kepada posting ini, sama-samalah kita renungkan semula beberapa potong ayat oleh Datuk Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak, mengenai eksport pasir ke Singapura.

Beliau membuat kenyataan ini dalam konteks Malaysia tak akan jual pasir kepada Singapura sebagai syarat Singapura mempersetujui pembinaan jambatan menggantikan Tambak Johor. Saya harap semangat di sebalik kenyataan itu terus relevan selama-lamanya.

Haramkan

Utusan Malaysia 21 Mac 2006 melaporkan Najib sebagai berkata bahawa kerajaan akan bertindak tegas mengenai soal penjualan pasir (kepada Singapura) demi mempertahankan kedaulatan dan maruah negara.

Katanya, beliau difahamkan jika Malaysia bersetuju menjual pasir kepada Singapura, sebanyak 50 juta meter padu setahun, untuk selama 20 tahun, bagi melebarkan Pulau Tekong, Tuas dan Jurong, ini bermakna, dalam tempoh dua dekad, pasir berkenaan akan bersamaan saiz sebuah lagi pulau Singapura.

Oleh itu, adakah pembesar Malaysia kini tidak insaf bahawa pasir yang nak dibeli oleh Singapura - sebanyak 50 juta meter padu setahun, untuk selama 20 tahun – dan juga batu pejal dan debu kuari yang sedang dieksportkan ke sana ketika ini, akan membina sebuah lagi pulau yang sama saiznya dengan Singapura yang wujud pada masa ini?

Walaupun eksport bahan ini menjana pendapatan negara, bukankah pengharaman eksport pasir, batu pejal, debu kuari dan lain-lain komponen asas kepada “hydraulic fill” dari Malaysia ke Singapura merupakan tindakan yang mesti dilakukan dengan seberapa segera? Tidakkah kepentingan dan kedaulatan negara mengatasi perkiraan perniagaan dan perolehan keuntungan?

Assalammualaikum Tun,

Thank you for your simple explaination on this issue Tun. Just wondering if you can reveal any evidence or black and white document to verify the information stated in your article (im not sure if this is against the law). It will be much more convincing.

Other than that, i'll be waiting for your explaination on other big issues.

Anyhow, may Allah bless you always Tun.. InsyaAllah..

Dear Tun,

I have always admire you for lots of things. In this case, you 'see' the future. Like it or not we have to work with Singapore. I believe the construction of the bridge will have positive effects to both countries in the long run. Our ports in Johor will also gain from this. In short, more opportunities for Malaysia.

Azman said...

Salam Tun Dr Mahathir,

Nowadays there is no longer two sides to every story, but three! Your version seems the most acceptable by our suffering citizens. You are a great man, but you too are a politician, also made mistakes, but you made us proud as Malaysians!

You keep posting revelations of the past and present, but what is the solution now? Are you going to come back into power and save us all???

Your successor Datuk Seri Abdullah, has been far from a success, and is extremely suspicious in his management of the country. He makes decisions, maybe he feels it's the right ones, but... why not explain??? We, the RAKYAT do not know anything, leading to speculations. This is a clear sign of a poor leadership, but he is the Leader of our Malaysia, is he the best we have???

As we know (or do not know, who knows?)... all Federal decisions are made and approved by the Dewan Rakyat and Negara. Did they all agree to these decisions?

How about his Second man, our DPM Datuk Seri Najib. Does he agree to all of Mr Badawi's decisions???
Why is he so quiet? Is he worried about something? I can understand if he waited for 1 or 2 years, but 5 years is way too long to stay quiet, while buying all the submarines and jets as a hobby. Is being a DPM so powerless that he can't object to anything? Does he even care about about Malaysia, or does he only care about being the next PM? Why doesn't he explain?

I know this is all speculation, but whose fault is this? I am a strong supporter of our government, but how long will this go on? We want answers, good ones, like in your posts Tun Dr Mahathir.

We need immediate action. Your former DPM Datuk Seri Anwar, is just waiting to gain the support to realize his life-long dream of being "awarded" Malaysia's PM. How about an entry about what happened to Anwar, Tun?

Everything seems to be moving so slowly here in Malaysia. I don't care about oil prices, we should have developed on our public transportations long ago. We need action, now... How about taking an active role, Tun? Your essays will not do us much good, other than awareness... and we are already very aware.

Will we achieve the Developed Nation status by 2020?

Salam sejahtera buat TUN sekeluarga,

Apabila mula mula TUN mengkritik akan pembatalan pembinaan "SCenic Bridge". Ramai yang marah kerana TUN masuk campur, lebih lebih lagi dgn cerita yang pernah di bawa oleh Radzi sheikh Ahmad bahawa jamabatan ini akan tergantung di tengah tengah jika tiada persetujuan dari Singapura.

I told my friends and my family bahawa he was doing a "Dollah Hadhari" while you were explaining about the bridge to the MT's and cabinet then.

Untuk Pengetahuan saudara Hamzah,
Tambak johor, persempadanan Malaysia-singapura di tengah tengah.
Pembinaan jambatan tersebut tammat dibahagian kita, cut-off dan akan bersambung ke tambak johor semula sebelum sampai ke sempadan Singapura.

And Loh,
I assume you are just one of the blokes who thinks, of what a waste the hi Way Plus was then... and now you are also one of the blokes who thinks the PLUS hi way is not wide enuff for your pleasure!!

Tun,
Org johor sudah MISBEHAVE tentang pasir dan ruang udara.

Saya berharap TUN dapat menjelaskan tentang Iskandar Johor (WPI)

Saya sgt berharap org JOHOR will MISBEHAVE AGAIN!!

Muhammad Azli Shukri said...

kita sememangnya tidak dapat nak terima hakikat pak lag batalkan jambatan tembok tersebut, corak ekonomi pak lah berbahaya.

vijayandra said...

I am still studying and following all your views.I am still not convinced because I did not hear any comments in the press by anybody in the government or by the "late" Samy Velloo.He is afraid to be drawn in because he is negotiating some money for the Indians and Abdullah might just refuse if he opens his mouth.I wish Annuar Ibrahim come out with his statement.I am waiting patiently to get the facts before trusting Mahathir.He might just release a little to create the tension the rakyat need.Abdullah is silent but we are waiting the Lingam's case to open the can of worms.Politics had become interesting nowadays but we should base everything on facts even if it comes from Mahathir.

G3N said...

salam Tun..

ur posted article makes me realized the darkside of pak lah..obviously PAK LAH IS A DISASTER!!!

Ya ALLAH,selamatkanlah MALAYSIA kami ini..Amin..

Muhammad Azli Shukri said...

Rakyat melantik Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi sebagai Perdana Menteri bukanlah suka-suka. Tetapi kita melantik beliau dan memberi kepercayaan kepada beliau untuk mentadbirkan negara ini serta memikirkan, bagaimanakah cara untuk pihak kerajaan meringankan beban dan masalah rakyat. Bukan dengan menyuruh rakyat sekadar bersabar dan terima sahaja apa-apa masalah yang menimpa mereka. Kerajaan perlu bertanggungjawab. Jika zaman pemerintahan Tun Mahathir berupaya menyelesaikan masalah Krisis Kewangan 1997 dengan baik serta rakyat tidak berasa menderita, mengapa kerajaan yang ada pada hari ini tidak mampu melakukannya sekali lagi? Sudah pasti ada yang tidak kena dengan seluruh penasihat-penasihat PM dan ahli-ahli kabinet yang sedia ada.


Apa yang dapat saya lihat di sini ialah corak pemikiran ekonomi Pak Lah yang jauh menyimpang dengan metodologi ekonomi Tun Mahathir. Jelas sekali, Pak Lah lebih suka ekonomi negara kita tidak mempunyai sebarang pelindungan dan rakyat perlu bersaing dalam pasaran terbuka tanpa ada lagi pelindungan dan keistimewaan. Berbeza dengan Tun Mahathir yang lebih banyak memberi keutamaan terhadap kesejahteraan serta melindungi ekonomi negara dan bangsanya daripada penderitaan. Pak Lah lebih gembira mengikut corak ekonomi dunia yang sebenarnya banyak merugikan bangsa dan negara kita. Tun Mahathir pula lebih mengutamakan kepentingan negara dan bangsa. Jika berlaku sebarang perkembangan ekonomi dunia tidak secocok dengan kepentingan negara dan bangsanya, beliau sudah pasti menentang dengan sekeras-kerasnya.


Justeru itu, ekonomi berbentuk pelindungan yang diamalkan oleh Tun Mahathir selama 22 tahun ini, telah dirosakkan oleh Pak Lah dengan corak ekonomi “siapa kuat dia menang” sudah semakin jelas kelihatan. Pak Lah dan konco-konconya tidak berapa suka dengan konsep “pelindungan”, bagi mereka cara terbaik menguruskan ekonomi negara adalah dengan mengikut telunjuk ekonomi kapitalis dunia. Dan membiarkan setiap warga negara ini bersaing tanpa ada lagi pelindungan. Orang Melayu tidak boleh bersaingan dalam pentas ekonomi dunia yang masih tidak sama rata dan adil. Pak lah seolah-olah membubuh racun ke dalam periuk nasi bangsanya sendiri, apabila menaikkan harga minyak tanpa berfiki panjang akan kesannya. Realitinya, orang Melayu dan negara Malaysia semakin terhakis daripada ekonomi yang berasaskan pelindungan dan pengawalan. Pak Lah begitu takut untuk menentang rejim ekonomi dunia yang semakin hari semakin kuat untuk cuba menguasai kita. Pak Lah tidak boleh mengikut aliran ekonomi semasa dengan begitu sahaja, beliau harus mempunyai kreativiti dan idea yang tinggi agar kenaikan harga minyak semasa mampu dibendung, sekurang-kurang untuk rakyat dan industri negara kita. Sesungguhnya, ada yang tidak kena dengan gaya pemikiran ekonomi PM kita ini!

Hello Tun:
It appears to me that you are overly stressed out on account of your being angry with Pak Lah and his Administration. I am concerned about your health. i am a poor guy and so I can't offer anything valuable. All I can offer to you are two noble thoughts to live by- to have peace of mind and happiness.
Here are the two thoughts that I want to offer you:
"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness i can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. (William Penn)
"Wisdom means keeping a sense of the fallibility of all our views and opinions, and of the uncertainty and instability of the things we most count on." (Gerard Brown)

Yang dihormati Tun Dr. Mahathir

Thank you for writting this article. You reveal the truth. We are waiting eagerly for the next three disclosure.

Just wondering why The Star has stopped featuring news on your topic pertaining TSA. Even NTV7 news at 7.00 pm this evening didn't mentioned anything concerning your latest article. Unlike the norm. The sudden silent is certainly, abnormal. I assumed they must have received some kind of instruction or warning from the Information Ministry, ie. not to feature or report anything that involve Tun. This is strange, since The Star have been reporting Tun's articles for the last many weeks. Suddenly, there's no more Freedom of Press for Tun. Perhaps Tun revelation is hurting them. The goverment of AAB.

I think this must be the worked of our Parrot Minister from Pahang, inspired by AAb strongest crony, Mohamed son of Mohamed, supported by the Flip Flop Minister from Johor and directed by Steven Spilberg, sorry, I mean KJ.

By the way, I think the "antimamak" guy must be Zainuddin Mydin la...since he has no more power to appear in RTM. He now start to write nonsense. sorry Zam, you talk too much and critised Tun like nobody business whilst you were in power. You're so ungrateful of Tun. And that is why you lost the election. Padan Muka.

mamaktongkang said...

Apa yang kita faham, penuliasan dalam blog Tun semakin korek korek korek terhadap DSAAB, bukan apa. cuma nak lepas geram dan menyebarakan rakyat menolak DSAAB turun, itulah objectivenya, kalaulah bukan kerana wang, buat apa dia nak kritik habis habisan?

Duit punya pasal


Mungkin juga kerana dulu mereka pernah janji mulut, Tun minta beberapa mega projek diluluskan, barulah memberikan kerusi kepada DSAAB. kerana terpaksa, atau kerana Khairy yang merampas balik, tanpa sedar mengakibatkan Tun lonjat ! keadaan ini telah menyebabkan Tun marah sehingga hari ini.

Tun marah sebab banyak projek mega tun dibubarkan, jadi income pun jadi kurang, macam mana nak jaga kuncu kuncu? jadi kuncu kuncu Tun semakin pupus mati lenyap akibat wang.

Cuba bayangkan, kenapa Tun mengistiharkan diri keluar dari UMNO ??? ini adalah cara untuk dapat kesian dari penyokong penyokongnya, Tun sanggup melakukan sesuatu untuk mendapatkan sokongan grassroot, melalui keadaan ini Tun mengambil langkah untuk menjatuhkan DSAAB semata mata untuk menghancurkan kuasa PM.

Pandai juga, Tun mainkan wang harakiri, buat kesian dan memaparkan rahsia diblog, memudahkan rakyat membenci DSAAB dan singapore, selain itu membatu apikan rakyat membenci singapore.

Memang singapore sebuah negara yang berlandaskan undang undang, bukanlah macam mamaktongkang menjual bawang, pandai mengira dan mengambil langkah dalam agreement. Disebabkan perangai kiasu ini menjadikan TUN tiada lubang untuk korek, pendeknya tiada cara mengautkan keuntungan melalui jambatan, lalu hangat hati sampai kini.

Cuba bayangkan, adakah article ini ditulis Tun sekali? rasanya orang lain yang menurun pena. Bukan lah tun, Tun cuma bagi ideal, mereka tulis pakai hentam tak terkena, banyak tulisnya bercanggah dengan realiti sebenar...

--Tun bukan sahaja PM, Tetapi pandai berlakon. awas !!!

OneEyeSleepy said...

Dear Che Det,

You idea of a bridge is crooked, so that Lorries can cross the strait with a slow climb up the bridge. It is also crooked because Singapore disagrees to jointly build a straight one as it takes much more space and land to elevate the other end of the bridge from Singapore.

On the other hand, a straight bridge is always more efficient and cheaper to build compared to a crooked bridge, as well as a shorter travel time across the strait.

Either way, the outflow of Singapore's currency by Malaysia's labor and Singaporean consumer also increases substantially as the travel time between both states will now be reduced. The disparity and the barriers to equilibrium of social-economics between both states will then drop and hastened with the higher end from Singapore ‘overflowing’ to Johor, Malaysia (I will leave the details and accuracy of the marginal change to the critics and readers).

Thus, unless Malaysia's government compensate in-kind back to Singapore’s alleged losses, Singapore's government will never support it. Please do not forget that during that period before the implementation to host two casinos in the republic, Singapore is in a state of indirection as to where their economy will head for the next decade. This was informed by a few Singaporeans, in which I was informed about upon inquiring the ideas behind the bold move of the Sentosa Island project.

Frankly, I am not an analyst and am not in a position to say whether the compensation (or investment for a speedier travel between both states, if you prefer) by selling RM1 Billion worth of sand and giving rights of the peaceful Johorean air-space for Singapore Jet flexing is worth it.

Nevertheless, my view is this, Information and technology exchange is priceless and the government of Malaysia could have offered a better package of compensation incentives compared to closing down the project completely. My verdict, the government of Malaysia under the current regime is incompetent and short-sighted whilst yours is too bold and undiplomatic in approach (while unconventional and arguable at the same time).

So I sound undecided, unless you forget that the risk of corruption will always exist in any given government given any compensation package any government can come out with, not to mention, without compensation, to say the least. The developer of the canceled crooked bridge did receive their RM500 million for laying down the foundation on the Malaysian end though.

Perhaps, the project can still be continued when the level of corruption is much much much lower in the future now that we have a more competitive government. Heck, I feel that this comment sounds more two-sided than your article.

Thank you.

Saya selaku rakyat Johor juga tersangat marah dengan tindakan Pak Lah membatalkan pembinaan jambatan bengkok tersebut. Tengok? La dia sibuk nak buat jambatan kedua penang pulak! Apa kata kalau pembinaan jambatan tersebut juga dibatalkan? apa perasaan Pak Lah agaknya...
Kami rakyat Johor amat menantikan pembinaan semula jambatan bengkok tersebut demi keselesaan, keselamatan dan pertahanan negara Malaysia dan negeri Johor khasnya.
Tak usahlah hendak membina pula kereta api laju menghubungkan Singa yang suka berPura-pura selalu itu..Kalau hendak buat juga cukup setakat Johor bukannya sampai ke Singapura-membazir! dan berbahaya kepada keselamatan negara kita pada masa akan datang...Lihat sahajalah kenderaan mereka yang langsung suka memandu seperti jalanraya ini dia yang bayar cukainya..sesuka hati, laju selajunya dan berani pula "high beam" pada kenderaan Malaysia kerana sering memandu ikut peraturan (110KMJ) sewaktu di lebuh-lebuhraya utama Malaysia. Awas!

Salam Tun Dr Mahathir.

"Di mana bumi dipijak,
Di situ Pak Lah berdolak-dalik".

"Bulat air kerana pembentung,
Bulat perut Pak Lah dan kroni kerana sapu duit rakyat".

"Sudah gaharu cendana pula,
Pak Lah sapu kroni pun join juga".

"Pemimpin berjiwa duit".

"Paku dulang paku serpih,
Sapu duit orang, Pak Lah dan kroni yang lebih".

"2 3 kucing berlari,
Mana nak sama si kucing belang,
4 5 rakyat susah hati,
Dok pikiaq lagu mana nak bayaq hutang".

Inilah antara pepatah baru yang tercipta demi menyatakan keadaan semasa.

Pak Lah dan kroninya tidak pernah memikirkan kesusahan yang dihadapi oleh rakyat jelata.

Jikalau Pak Lah dan kroni memikirkan keadaan rakyat terutama terhadap bangsa Melayu yang masih ramai tergolongan dalam kumpulan miskin, sudah tentu setiap keputusan dan tindakan yang diambil memberi banyak kebaikan dan manfaat.

Sudah banyak isu-isu yang berlaku di dalam negara gagal disempurnakan oleh Pak Lah. Dari yang sekecilnya hinggalah yang sebesarnya, semuanya menjadi lebih teruk.

Ramai rakyat sudah hilang kepercayaan terhadap Pak Lah dan kroninya. Jika dahulu ramai yang menyanjung Pak Lah atas sebab beliau seorang yang bersih dan berjiwa rakyat. Sekarang ramai yang ingin memijak kepala Pak Lah kerana sudah dianggap perosak hidup rakyat.

Pada era Tun, tidak terlalu banyak masalah sosial yang berlaku. Tetapi pada zaman Pak Lah, lebih banyak gejala sosial yang terjadi walhal beliau memperkenalkan ajaran Islam Hadhari. Apakah ajaran Islam Hadhari telah membawa satu konsep baru di dalam pelaksanaan amalan Islam yang dibawa oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW sehingga menyebabkan lebih banyak keruntuhan moral di kalangan rakyat?

Pak Lah juga telah melaksanakan pembaharuan ekonomi, dahulu Tun menumpukan pada sektor pembuatan dan teknologi maklumat. Tetapi Pak Lah telah kembali kepada sektor pertanian, tetapi tiada pula hasil yang memberansangkan dalam sektor pertanian. Jadi di mana manfaat yang boleh rakyat dapat dalam pembaharuan ekonomi oleh Pak Lah.

P/S:
Kami nak Pak Lah letak jawatan.

Tun, amat wajar Tun mengambil alih tampuk pemerintahan buat sementara waktu.

Berikut adalah petikan berita NST pada 27 Nov 07 dan Berita Harian pada 28 Nob 07 berkaitan hal 'PANGGIL BALIK' wang kertas RM500 dan RM1,000 oleh pihak Kerajaan

Soalnya terdetik dihati kami kenapa wang kertas yang telah dibatalkan sahlakunya pada 1/7/99 lanjutan kerangkusan 'PENYANGAK MATA WANG' di 'PANGGIL BALIK'. Dah 8 TAHUN

Kalau boleh mohon Tun semak dan maklumkan kami KENAPA PANGGIL BALIK, BERAPA BANYAK DITUKAR, BILA DITUKAR & OLEH SIAPA.


1. (BERITA NST 27 NOV 07)
STATUS OF DEMONETISED RM500 & RM1,000 CURRENCY NOTES
Bank Negara Malaysia had announced on 12 September 1998 the demonetisation of the RM500 and RM1,000 denomination currency notes. These notes have ceased to be legal tender effective from 1 July 1999. The volume of RM500 and RM1,000 notes in circulation before demonetisation stood at 1,989,479 pieces and 4,523,731 pieces respectively, amounting to a combined face value of RM5.52 billion. To-date, there are less than 200,000 pieces of the RM500 notes and RM1,000 notes remaining in circulation, with a combined face value of about RM100 million. Members of the public who are still holding genuine RM500 and RM1,000 notes may be able to obtain the full value of the demonetised RM500 and RM1,000 currency notes at Bank Negara Malaysia, including at its branches located in Johor Bahru, Pulau Pinang, Kuala Terengganu, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.

Assalamualaikum Tun,
So wuz the fuss about water pipelines legal problems that Malaysia might face if we build the "bengkok" bridge?I remembered PakLah mentioned that we may get into legal fights with S'pore about the water pipelines.Maybe go ICJ?
Obviously thesand so-called sand export ban is not true at all.There have been sightings of 30 sand barges leaving Belungkor (there's a sandpit area there belonging to some very powerful people?)at certain times at night heading for possibly S'pore?Why recently I was surprised to see several lorries carrying sand(under covers of course but still see the sand leh!)on the Causeway!
Your truths on the bridge cancellation is going to get a buat-bodoh response from PakLah coz he is thinking that the people are down with minyak problems and got no time to comprehend your truths-telling stories.
By the way Tun,who gains if the straight bridge takes shape?The 4thfloor boys I supposed?And what about my request that you reveal the names of the PERMANENT RESIDENTS OF THE 4TH FLOOR PMO ?Wassalam

Azhar said...

YABhg Tun

I think it is a bit unjust to argue such an issue of such magnitude in a very simplistic way. I sincerely think that it is not as simple as it appears. I am sure there is a lot of technicalities involved (unless we want to assume our AG as incompetent and ignorant). I do believe some of the issues cited may be valid and post a little inconvenience in the implementation of the project.

Having said that, the socio-economic reasoning behind the replacement of the causeway is still very compelling both to Malaysia and Singapore, more so for Malaysia.

My greatest regret of the present administration actually is the lack of resolve to confront Singapore on the matter. I trust the solution proposed by the administration of YABhg Tun is to take back the rights to decide into what belongs to Malaysia in Malaysian hand. Overtime, Singapore will realise and would play ball with us. I salute for the political brinksmanship that YABhg Tun demonstrated in this instance.

To just forgo what has been spent and over and above that pay compensation to contractors is the ultimate act of cowardice that left Singapore thinks that they can dictate what is ours to decide with just a threat of the complexity of legal technicalities.

I believe at the end of the day, the compelling economic benefit that it will bring to both countries will shout far louder than the nagging cries of protracted legal tussle.

If it is left to me to argue,I would just not use the wasteful act of the present administration as the crux of the problem in relation to this issue, but rather the resolve to lead bravely for what is true and just.

AK said...

YAB Tun,

There is nothing much we can do with regards to the cancellation of the bridge because according to the government, they had no choice as Singapore say 'Cannot Wan!!'

Having lived in Singapore and schooling in Johor back in the late eighties, the traffic caused by the causeway then was already horrendous. At times, when it was so bad, we had to walk across the causeway in the morning or risk being late for school.

The Crooked Bridge is exemplary of the Singapore's Govt. 'self-centred' mentality. Instead of logically consenting to jointly building a new, cheaper, straight bridge, they make their neighbours go through a tedious task of building a crooked, scenic, 'bengkok' and not to mention expensive, bridge.

Have they not heard of 'Love Thy Neighbour'? Then there was the water issue, where they insisted that we continue to sell them water at 'Zaman Dulu-Dulu' pricing.

Malaysians must take note of these issues and understand the intricate relationship that we have with Singapore. I will always be in constant admiration of how well organized and clean Singapore is. BUT, I feel that their sincerity in forging better ties with MY country is doubtful when we consider the issues raised above.

Many out there seems to think that the sole reason of our constant differences or issues raised by us is due to envy or if its by UMNO, its in protest over the treatment of Malays in Singapore. We must put such notions away and let LOGIC & FACTS shape our opinion.

The cancellations of the bridge had resulted in millions (or is it billions?) wasted, should we not then critically question our 'leaders' for the rationale for such decisions?

For TUN DR MAHATIR Attention

Please take notes of the contradiction between the english
version and Malay version of this article.
"This was a very attractive offer as the reclaimed land can sell for 3,000-5,000 Singapore dollars (about RM6,000-RM10,000) per square metre"


"Ini satu tawaran menarik kerana tanah yang ditambak boleh dijual antara 3,000-5,000 Dolar Singapura (kira-kira RM6,000-RM10,000) sekaki persegi."

WHICH IS THE CORRECTONE?Any way will still give more than 90 marks to this article after clarrification has been made.I like the ILLUSTRATION picture very much because it assisted me to understand your explaination and also the design of the bridge is very unique.

Sincerely Your's HOHO

Tujuan Pak Lah hanya satu.. ingin memadamkan segala pencapaian TUN dan menggagalkan usaha TUN. Dia cuba nak cipta nama tersendiri tanpa dibayangi TUN. kononnya...

Wawasan 2020 sudah kelihatan seperti mencapai kegagalan akibat 5 tahun pemerintahan Pak Lah.

Trek berkembar dibatalkan dan jambatan gagal. Sekarang dah tak guna lg, kos construction pun dah melambung. Masa murah tak nak bina..

Nasib baik TUN dah buat lebuh raya utara selatan, kalau TUN tinggal kat pak lah sure dia dah cancel, maklumlah pak lah nak padam terus nama TUN.

Sakit Jiwa betul la dengan perangai Pak Lah ni...

"To be great is to be misunderstood"
- Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Finally, an insightful explanation from the man himself! Thank you for the revelation of this issue which has long been misconstrued by the rakyat and manipulated by the media.

From an urban planner/architect's point of view, the proposal of the "bengkok" bridge is a unique solution specific to its context and sensitivity.

I wonder if the Tanjung Pelepas Port fits anywhere in this equation?

From my readings, I understand that even operating at less than half its full capacity, Tanjung Pelepas Port already poses as a potent adversary to the Port of Singapore. Care to comment on this, Tun?

Since we are on the subject of Singapore-Malaysia relations, I would also like your comments on the existing and future ownership of land area occupied by KTM railway lines from Woodlands to Tanjung Pagar and areas surrounding Masjid Temenggung at the foot of Mount Faber in Singapore.

Last I checked, these are Malaysian-owned lands. Would these lands be overlooked and handed over (just like the disputed Batu Putih) since the cancellation of the bridge would render train travel obsolete in the future?

Tun, I have always supported and agreed with your rationale over Malaysia's megaprojects which others label as "white elephants". (I bet Dato Seri Abdullah is enjoying the view from his office now!) To this very day, I have always found your ideas to be very clinical and visionary, including this one.

I bid you the best of health and thank you for all your guidance and jasa to the rakyat.

dear tun..

from the day first when u wanted to build the bridge , all of us were happy,this will help johorian alot, port in johor will be back in business , vessel don't need to make a big round around singapore , to get to johor or malacca strait , there is so many other benefit from this project, but what to do, someone is so happy to cancel this project......
it would be nice to c the sea water from both side of the sea to meet at johor..

tinggal mimpi sahaja :(

Din Investor said...

TUN previosly I thought Pak Lah didn't approved the bridge because it was often reported by mainstream media as 'CROOKED' [may be Pak Lah government hoped that by projecting the bridge as a bad design, they can make people agree that scrapping the bridge is the best choice as it do not look nice]. But now only did I understand that the bridge need to be in such a way as to allow lorry to assend and boat to pass beneath.
It is indeed dissapponting that the Pak Lah and his "YES MEN" cabinet ministers did not proceed with the bridge construction while in your time they had agreed with you that a bridge need to be built to ease congestion on the causeway.
What a selfish government we are currently having that does no regard people's need as top priority but are more concerned of filling their coffers with peoples money. Consider Zakaria's Palace in Selangor. There is a saying that if you found a cockroach [corrupted politicians] in your cupboard [ country], you can expect that they are more.
Tun, is my hope that you continue to enlighten us about this corrupted government misdeed , so that we may make change in the next election. Thank you.

Assalamualaikun TUN....

Sebenarnya DOLAH ni memang penakut kepada S'pore & bangsa2 asing. DOLAH ikut cakap MENANTU (anak angkat s'pore) yang memang pro dgn s'pore. MENANTU DOLAH banyak main peranan untuk batalkan jambatan bengkok ni.

DOLAH suka main golf dgn pemimpin s'pore, kononnya diaLAH pemimpin yang sporting. Walhal cina s'pore dah main-mainkan dia.

semasa zaman TUN, saya respect cara TUN handle masalah dgn s'pore. Tak macan DOLAH yang suka TIDUUUR...

sekarang, dah banyak projek yang TUN bangunkan teLAH diLINGKUPkan oleh DOLAH. Sebaliknya di johor dia buat ISKANDAR MALAYSIA (dah 4 kali tukar nama, nanti tukar jadi S'POR MALAYSIA pulak) yang hanya menguntungkan cina s'pore saja.

Bagi saya, DOLAH tak layak jadi Pemimpin negara, DOLAH hanya layak jadi PELINGKUP & PENYANGAK (curi duit rakyat).
Jadi pemimpin zoo pun bagus gak sebab suka tiduuur.

Apapun TUN, kami tetap bersamamu. InsyaAllah kami akan pastikan DOLAH, MENANTU & RAKAN2 PEMBODEK akan TIDUR terus dari UMNO.

HIDUP TUN!!!!

Please do elaborate and I am sure you will receive the maximum hits.

Salam Tun,
Walau seminggu tidak dapat menatap blog Tun terasa seperti hilang pedoman..hehehe!Anyhow, what Pak Lah did was totally stupid and irresponsible.The money of the rakyat has been wasted so many times by him and his kuncu2!I wonder when is all this gonna stop.when is Pak Lah going out of the picture cause since the price increase of our petrol he,himself and his ministers have been making very,very stupid remarks such as the minister who said he guarantee other price of goods will not increase due to the oil price and the remarks by Pak Lah himself saying the government has got no more money to be spend on subsidy cause all a bulk of it have been spent for the salary increase of government servants...the question now is what will happen to the rakyat in the private sector?please oh please let Pak Lah go away!!

muhamads said...

Salam Sejahtera Buat Tun,

Saya lihat semmg nyer Singapore tengah sibuk dgn land reclaimation. Saya pun tidak tau dari mana datang nya pasir tersebut. Saya syak, penjualan pasir masih belaku, cuma kita tidak tahu dari mana.

Kata hati mengatakan Pulau Batu Putih pun part of a plan to please the kutu. The matter was taken to court so that ppl/rakyat would not question the decision which was muchly expected. Ada jugak kutu, kata surat/agreement allowing s'pore to use that land was taken by a "spy". Kata hati saya berpendapat, it was an inside job. Kalau pasir boleh buat billion, inikan pula sebuah pulau.

Then, comes issue pulau pisang. This is just a follow up event yg terbukti milik kita.

Teruskan perjuangan Tun. Kami sentiasa bersama.

Terima Kasih Tun

Dearest Tun.

The truth is always shocking to hear. Still, I am very dissapointed with the government for cancelling this project that will benefit Malaysia. All the excuses given by them upon the cancellation were not logic. Now Tun had reveal to us the real reasons for the cancellation. What a shame...

I hope in the near future, a new leader with Tun brilliance will revive this project for the benefit of all Malaysian.

God bless you Tun.

I m a Malaysian with a singapore PR status. With regards to selling sand to Singapore, i don't see any 'real' problem with that. The more important issue is the cancelling the causeway project which we the "rakyat" has to pay the stupid penalty of millions of dollars. Moreover, the Abdullah administration are too stupid to undermine the real potentials that we are going to gain if the bridge is built and the ships are allowed to cross over!! For me, this is the real problem!! This show that the abdullah is a conservative minded and has no vision at all!! Just to think that how much we can gain if the ship can just cross over wihout making a turn at the south of singapore. We are losing not a mere bridge but billions of dollars!!

Assalamualaikum TUN...

Kalau dibiarkan hal-hal sebegini berterusan DOLAH & KHAIRI akan jual Malaysia.
Mereka tidak langsung membela nasib rakyat, terutamanya melayu. Melayu yang maju banyak yang lahir dizaman pemerintahan TUN. PAKLAH lebih rela membela rakan-rakan asing seperti s'pore & USA.
Senarai perkara-perkara yang diLINGKUPkan oleh DOLAH:-
1) rel berkembar
2) jambatan bengkok
3) putrajaya (ada fasa yg terbengkalai)
4) PROTON
5) MAS (dia bela AIRASIA)
6) MSC (dia suruh rakyat bertani)
7) KLIA (dia buat LCCT)

Akhirnya 5 negeri hilang ke tangan pembangkang. lebih memalukan P.Pinang sendiri pun KALAH. lebih malang lagi, ada Sultan yang tak suka dengan PAKLAH ni.

Apapun TUN, teruslah menulis dalam blog ini. Kami sentiasa menyokong TUN.

Harap-harap TUN dapat cerita tentang hal Anwar Ibrahim pulak.

Salam Tun,

Saya yakin apabila jika dimula sahaja pembinaan Jambatan Bengkok..maka Pemerintah Singapura akan bersetuju pula dengan Jambatan yang Lurus.Ini olehkerana mereka tiada pilihan lagi..bayangkan lima belas tahun kemudiannya dan seterusnya selepas itu,agaknya
bagaimanakah mereka hendak menerangkan serta menjelaskan kepada anak-anak mereka dan juga para pengunjung Negara mereka tentang mengapa ia nya 'bengkok'? Mereka akan kelihatan 'terlalu bodoh,bongkak dan juga 'cheapskate' selagi jambatan Bengkok itu berada disitu walaupun apa juga alasan yang mereka berikan !! Walhal, kita pula akan dilihat sebagai sebuah negara yang 'practical' dan 'dedicated' dalam usaha kita. Dengan itu saya yakin sebenarnya tidak akan terjadi sebuah jambatan bengkok akan tetapi akan terjadi sebuah jambatan yang lurus yang indah,malangnya ada yang 'melenyapkan' harapan itu.Soalannya kenapa dan untuk siapa ?

Dear Tun,

This comment also goes out to antimamak and Loh

I have been following your blog from day one, and would like to congratulate you one the speed that you got your 1M hits.

As a Malaysian citizen that pretty much matured under your leadership, I did not totally agree with every decision that you made. Some of the decisions that you made, were in my opinion, very one-sided and are wastes of public funds. However, there are also many decisions that you made that, at first glanced seemed to be a waste of public's funds, but turned out to be brilliant.

I never thought that you were infallable when you were the PM. However, when I lay down all the pros and cons of your rule, the pros easily outweigh the cons.

I believed that most of the people that said that there was no free press and freedom of speech during your time were not totally wrong. I would'nt go so far as to say there were NO freedom, but just a serious LACK of freedom. However, those same people that say that probably have no problems putting food on the table for their family. For the rest of us who have to struggle just to make ends meet, we could really care less about freedom of press. What I do know is that, under your rule, although it was difficult, we still manage to feed our family.

Sadly, this isn't the case now. I find it almost impossible to make ends meet.

For Loh and antimamak, there are NO leaders in the world nowadays that are completely corrupt free. To me, in order for someone to be a leader nowadays, there must be corrupt practices done for him/her to get to that position in the first place. At the end of the day, we can only judge them on how much more good or bad that they do.

TDM has done bad. He is human after all. But at the end of the day, he has done more good.

If you look around us, you can see that our economy is better than all our neighbours except Singapore and Brunei. But these are both small countries and are not difficult to manage, in comparison. Even so, Singapore has to rule with an iron fist to get things done.

The sad thing about this current government is that they have not done a single good thing since they are in power.I simply just can't think of one. Every decision made seems to be to enrich themselves while the rest of the country suffers.

Corruption is inescapable. We are all humans. However, it is acceptable if more good comes out of it than bad. Yes, there will always be a party that is one the wrong end of any major decision.

Loh and antimamak seems to have a grudge against you, dear Tun. And I don't know for what reasons. I have been reading their comments and it seems that they only know how to criticise you, but never the present government. So, I deduce that they probably represent the present government, or more specifically the most hated man in Malaysia, KJ.

Tun and to all your die-hard supporters, you are not perfect. Far from it. You have also done a lot of wrong in your time. However, the scale still tips in your favour, in my book. However, maybe this is the time that you repent and help all of us get rid of the present menace in the government. Ultimately, I believe that will be biggest legacy.

That good care of yourself and my salam to your wife

ladahitam said...

Dari dulu saya dah rasa Pak Lah tak layak jadi PM. Tak ada kredibiliti langsung, jadi pengikut bolehlah. Jadi pendamai pun ok gak.

Tapi camna Tun boleh pilih dia? Sebab Pak Lah paling senior ke? Kalau atas dasar tu, Tun pun silap sebab PM Malaysia adalah kepala kepada 26 juta rakyat.

Apa pun, ada hikmah drp apa yang berlaku. Kenalah kita sama-sama muhasabah diri tentang segala tindak tanduk demi Agama, Bangsa dan Negara.

neyo said...

Salam Tun,

Semasa saya kecil dahulu sekitar tahun 80an, saya masih ingat akan bingitnya bunyi jet pejuang singapura terbang atas sekolah saya. kadang-kadang sehari tu 2 3 kali pusing. Bila dengar jer bunyi jet dari jauh, kami semua akan senyap, kerana kami tahu bila jet lalu sepatah haram pun takkan dengar patah2 perkataan yg kami ucapkan.. begitu juga dgn cikgu kami. Pada masa itu saya dah lali dgn bunyi sebegitu.

Saya tak tahu siapa yg benarkan jet s'pore tu lalu kat negara kita. tapi yg saya tahu masa tu zaman Tun. Sehinggalah saya tak perasan bilakah jet2 singapore dah tak lalu kampung saya lagi. Yang saya perasan, masa tu Tun sudah mempunyai pengaruh dan karisma yg kuat dan disegani. Terima kasih Tun.

Tapi semenjak AAB menjadi PM, saya lihat semakin kerap pula jet singpore melintasi johor. Kali terakhir pada bulan Mei lepas. 3 kali pusing. Kenapalah Malaysia ni terlalu berlembut? Kenapalah kerajaan terlalu menjaga hati jiran dari menjaga hati rakyatnya sendiri?

Apalah nak jadi...

Menteri2 pun nampaknya macam tak pandai dah nak membela rakyat. Sharir Samad dulu yg lantang berkata-kata pun bila naik jadi menteri, terus jadi tukang kipas AAB.

sigh...

Anonymous Says said...

The government's money has been misused since many moons ago.
The planned project of the crooked bridge is one that involves a lot of money. What about money involved on a much smaller scale ? Example allowances for training purposes, scholarships, etc. etc. Little, little things make up the big things. If there is a need to clear up the country's financial status, you will have to think of a team of real sharp auditors who are neutral and who are being protected once they expose the usage of money in the country.

While there is a need to keep savings for the country in case of some unforeseen circumstances, the excess of the savings should be given back to the people.

Till today it is a sorry sight when one uses the causeway. Regretfully, the sorry sight is on the Malaysian's side. It is not just the existing infrastructure there. The services, the crowd, the rush are also the problems. The second link is much better and well planned. However, many people are used to the old causeway because it provides a more direct linkage into both Johor Bahru centre and Singapore city. The Tanjong Pagar station itself looks ancient, dim and kind of neglected.

If the rule of punishment and reward is used, it should be used on the relevant people and not people who do not deserve it at all.

Nostradamus said...

Tun,

1. Masa serah menyerah tugas, takde ke bagi briefing "Jangan kacau projek-projek Tun"?

2. Sekarang PM buat projek kat WPI, Tun pula nak kacau projek dia.

3. Cerita jual pasir ni, apa yang ada dengan pasir? Kat, lombong bijeh timah lama, banyak pasir bertimbun-timbun. Bukan kita boleh makan atau minum kan? Kita tak jual, Indonesia pula yang bagi jual. Kalau Malaysia yang jual, boleh juga buat jutawan tambahan kat Malaysia. Tak kira lah siapa atau kroni siapa yang dapat asalkan orang Malaysia.

4. Tentang nak terbang lalu ruang udara Johor, memang tak boleh lah. Ia melibatkan kedaulatan negara.

5. Kesimpulannya, kita kurang bijak berunding. Kalau bijak, dah dapat jambatan lurus and lahirkan 2 atau 3 jutawan.

Dengan rendah diri saya memohon izin utk paste kan artikel yg menarik ini, agar Johorean & Malaysian are aware of this Neocons coming here:

War Profiteering: How do Economic Sanctions affect Halliburton Energy Services Inc ?


March 29, 2007

Halliburton Energy Services, Inc., Sanctions-Buster!
Economic sanctions have been applied on Iran pursuant to a US sponsored United Nations Security Council resolution. Recent reports in the New York Times and the Washington Post focus on U.S. pressures on foreign companies and governments which are known to either support or have business ties with Iran. Curiously, these reports do not mention Halliburton Energy Services Inc, a company with direct links to the Vice President's Office, which has, despite the US sponsored sanctions, important investments in Iran's energy sector.1
Late last month, Halliburton’s public relations department announced that the oilfield services firm will sell its KBR unit that is mired in the Nigerian bribery scandal. Then on March 11 came truly bizarre news: Halliburton’s corporate headquarters will move from Houston to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Even with last year's furor over Dubai Ports World, the public response so far has been crashing silence. But I suppose that only makes sense as U.S.-UAE relations aren't newsworthy either (Lockheed Martin's sale of 80 F-16 fighters, on-going free trade talks, and the Navy’s contract with Dubai-owned Inchcape Shipping Services).2
Reducing corporate tax liability seems to be a motive for Halliburton management who want to relocate company headquarters to Dubai. Nor do the United States and the UAE have an extradition treaty, which Halliburton executives may find useful someday.3 But this is nothing next to the fact that Halliburton already has an institutional presence in Dubai and is violating U.S. embargoes against "rogue states" if not directly, then at least in spirit.
Incorporated in the Cayman Islands, Halliburton Products and Services Limited (HPSL) works out of an office in Dubai. Halliburton claims that HPSL is an "independent" foreign subsidiary that is not directly managed by U.S. citizens. Halliburton argues that it therefore does not have to pay taxes on HPSL's revenues. The argument continues that, not being managed by U.S. citizens, Halliburton’s foreign subsidiaries are not subject to U.S. legal restrictions. But the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control maintains that "U.S. persons may not approve, finance, facilitate or guarantee any transaction by a foreign person where that transaction by a foreign person would be prohibited if performed by a U.S. person or from the United States."4 No matter. Besides, perhaps I miss the point but how can HPSL be both a "subsidiary" and "independent" at the same time?
Ever since the start of the Bush administration, anyone who cared to know could learn that Halliburton was under Federal investigation for violating sanctions against Iran. It is also common knowledge – that is, among those who care to know – that some of the deeds in question may have begun when Vice-President Dick Cheney was Halliburton’s CEO in the 1990s nor has there been a criminal prosecution in relation to any of them.5
Illegal or not, HPSL’s work in Iran has been interesting. In January 2005, after an Iranian newspaper reported it, Halliburton admitted that HPSL won a sub-contract from Oriental Kish Oil, a private Iranian company, to develop a section of the South Pars gas field in the Persian Gulf. But supposedly fearing for national security, the new Ahmadinejad regime blocked HPSL’s participation in the project in September (a high-level Oriental Kish executive was also a key negotiator with the IAEA and western powers about Iran's civilian nuclear program).6
It was sometime during this period, sources claim, that Halliburton sold components for nuclear reactors to Iran via HPSL. If this is true and if the Iranian nuclear program does have a military component, the implications are unspeakable. Did representatives of Halliburton, or any of its corporate entities, consider risks to U.S. national security during phases of the South Pars negotiations? Does HPSL still keep an office in Tehran? These are not trivial questions for besides HPSL, at least five Halliburton foreign subsidiaries have sold products and services to customers in Iran (incidentally, this information is confirmed by a 2003 company report posted on the Halliburton website).7
What does America’s most famous former Halliburton employee think about his old company’s purported links with Iran? When he was CEO in 1998, Cheney put it this way: "I think we'd be better off if we…backed off those sanctions [and] didn't try to impose secondary boycotts on companies...trying to do business over there." Straight-shooting talk but are they the words of a rugged patriot?8 In some people’s minds, they may conjure up memories of unpunished treason by certain "U.S. persons" during World War II.
The comeback that Halliburton is not the only sanctions-buster is childish. On the other hand, "vigorous" enforcement of current embargo legislation caters to warmongers in our country. At issue is Halliburton's own behavior. But rather than expecting "apologies," we must make sanctions-busting and war-profiteering unprofitable. How? A boycott movement directed at business that deal with Halliburton is in order. Efforts by municipal and state authorities over the past few years to "clean up" employee pension funds are also positive steps. For their part, national law-makers must develop full-blown and consistent legislation that does not punish foreign populations but rather American sanctions-busters. Congress and President Bush should hold Halliburton liable for the actions of its foreign subsidiaries. Assuming that our elected leaders have the "political will" to do so.

Dear Tun,
While posting all these mind-opening articles (I sincerely thank you!), I just hope you be very careful since your opponents might be waiting for you to take a wrong step. In particular, I'm worried in case some people in the government would find reason to arrest you under ISA. I know that you've previously been arrested under this act (and yet you did not abolish it during your tenure!), but just be careful, Ayahanda Tun. Once again, thank you for everything.

Ayahnda TDM

semoga Tun sekeluarga sihat walafiat.

saya harap siarkan ucapan2 yang berkaitan dengan tajuk tulisan melalui 'youtube' supaya ramai rakyat dapat dengar dan faham kerana ucapan Tun selalunya jelas dan dapat mengelakan sindrom penafian yang berlaku sana sini

Reza Zainal said...

Thank you Tun for exposing the lies of the present government. You have caused some consternation among the 4th floor guys..I could tell because NST have given up giving your recent postings the infamous twist.
We missed you Tun. You should not have resigned and give the leadership to such an inferior 'Islamic' leader.

pada pandangan sayalah Tun, kalau dilaksanakan juga jambatan bengkok tu dengan design architecture yg menarik, mungkin puluhan tahun lagi jambatan bengkok itu akan menjadi salah satu projek pembinaan bersejarah dunia. sama seperti tembok berlin. melambangkan betapa angkuhnya sombongnya negara jiran Malaysia itu terhadap negara asalnya. suatu sejarah yg boleh memalukan negara itu bukan sahaja setahun dua, malah berpuluh beratus tahun lamanya.

pelancong dari satu dunia akan datang melihat dan melalui sendiri jambatan bengkok itu. satu dunia akan melihat tindakan tidak profesional pemimpin negara tersebut. walaupun niat asal projek ini adalah baik, untuk menyelesaikan masalah trafik, meningkatkan ekonomi kedua belah negara dan menyelamatkan ekosistem hidupan di tambak johor. mungkin dengan projek ini dan disokong dengan projek iskandar itu nanti kedua2 negara akan menerima faedah yg sangat besar dari segi pelaburan asing dan perlancongan.

sekarang bila projek sebegitu dibatalkan, kita bukan sahaja kerugian wang bilion ringgit, tetapi juga simbol ketidak tegasan pendirian Malaysia dan pendek akal pemimpin negara kita di waktu itu.

tiada jambatan, tiada "malu" yg tidak dapat disorok pemimpin negara Malaysia kepada dunia. ia hanya "malu" kerajaan waktu itu pada Rakyat yg memberikan amanah mentadbir negara ketika itu.

tetapi jika adanya jambatan bengkok, selagi jambatan itu ada di situ, dunia akan bertanyakan jawapan daripada kedua2 negara. selagi itulah negara yg bersalah akan berdepan dengan "malu" mereka sendiri. berita memalukan yg akan menjadi buah mulut seluruh dunia..

what a waste of public funds by the AAB government. if the beautiful curved bridge was built, it would have been called the 'straits bridge'. johoreans would have been proud of it and an icon to johor the southern gateway to malaysia.

morkymoqq said...

salam TDM,

terima kasih atas penerangan Tun berkenaan isu2 yang masih menjadi tanda tanya sehingga kini. Saya sedar Tun telah cuba pelbagai cara utk mendapatkan penjelasan tentang isu2 berbangkit tetapi sehingga ke hari ini tiada antara pembesar negara yang berani menyatakan kebenaran.

Setelah projek jambatan batal, jelas duit rakyat akan automatik kerugian bagi menampung kos gantirugi ke atas projek terbabit. kontraktor "Gerbang Perdana" yang dipertanggungjawabkan untuk membina jambatan bengkok itu telah mendapat 'durian runtuh' sekitar 500juta! di atas pembatalan projek. Tidakkah ada sekelumit di hati pembesar ini bahawa pembaziran wang rakyat telah berlaku?

Tun,
teruskan dgn usaha Tun mengupas segala isu2 yang sensitif ini. Namun jika dikira usaha Tun ini sebenarnya akan membuka ruang rakyat membenci kerajaan BN dan seterusnya memberi 'political mileage' kepada Pakatan Rakyat. Bagaimana Tun melihat soal ini? Ini boleh diibarat seperti ditelan mati emak, diluah mati bapa...
Harapan saya, biarlah ini menjadi hikmah utk melahirkan pemimpin yang adil utk negara.

Assalamualaikum

Dah nak buat macam mane, Nasi sudah jadi bubur,

Pemikiran Paklah masih 4 tahun sebelum PRU12, tak ade perubahan, semua rakyat malaysia tau dia tidur,
Banyak lagi projek sangat tak faedah, misalnya Masjid Kristal yang masih tidak boleh lagi menunaikan solat jumaat, Lagi pun Terengganu bukannya ada taman tema dekat sana,
Monsun Cup Apa rakyat malaysia yang rakyat malaysia dapat, Rakyat Terengganu sepatunya kaya kerana kaya dengan hasil dengan minyak.

Berkenaan dengan jambatan tambak baru saya amat kagum, Saya masih ingat lagi isu yang dikeluarkan oleh tv3 mengenai sungai di selat terbau perlu dibersihkan, dan rakyat johor mahukan jambatan baru.
Saya percaya dengan tambak baru ni dapat mengurangkan kesesakan dan dapat mengurangkan kos logistic import export antara Singapore dan Malaysia. Lagi pun mane tahun mungkin pelancong yang ke Singapura akan terpengun melihat Jambatan bengok dan mereka mesti datang Johor Bahru.

Apapun saya kagum kerajaan Malaysia no 6 tebaik bukan zaman paklah tapi zaman TUN. Kami tidak mudah tertipu oleh Pak Lah.

p/s Insyaallah kami rakyat Malaysia doakan Tun semoga diberkati ALLAH s.w.t dan ALLAH Maha Pengampun

Razlan Hanafiah said...

Salam, Tun

Mungkin komen saya ni terlalu direct tapi inilah yang cuba saya sampaikan.

Umur Tun sekarang dah lanjut, boleh dikatakan semakin hampir ke penghujungnya jika mengikut purata jangka hidup rakyat Malaysia.

Tun, sebelum terlalu lambat, TOLONGLAH selamatkan Malaysia. Kami rakyat Malaysia merayu pada Tun kerana sekarang tak ada tokoh yang mampu betul2 berfikiran dan bertindak macam Tun.

Sanggupkah Tun tinggalkan kami dalam keadaan sekarang? You have nothing to lose, Tun. Please help us.

Maaf jika terkasar bahasa. Semoga Allah merahmati Tun dan keluarga.

Salam Tun

Wanna to know flip flop characteristics of this sleeping beauty. Here is a short list

1. Split the ministry of home affairs (KDN) into two ministries i.e ministry of home affairs and ministry of security in 2004. Created unnecessary 'chaos' in the day to day public administration. Azmi Khalid was appointed as the minister of home affairs. Allocated sum RM8 million to renovate a new office for him. AAB remained as minister of security. In April 2008, combined two ministries into one - back to square one. Hamid Albar appointed as minister. We can deduce that he made changes just for the sake of changing. Nothing behind it, perhaps wanted to create more ministers to be his baruas.

2.Formed Institut Integriti Nasional to make integrity as part and parcel of malaysian culture....not realising that by having such an institution is making a mockery of ACA's existence. To make matter worse this sleeping beauty never practice what he preaches. He appointed, Mike Tyson as UMNO information chief after knowing very well that this joker was once forced to vacate an MB post after being arrested in Down Under for carrying more than RM2 million hard cash. And recently he appointed a lawyer who was once suspended for being involved in rasuah politik as de facto minister of law who later advised him to pay ex-gratia payment to salleh abbas and the gang. Until now the amount is not disclose as seemed the money came from his own coffer. Where is transparency you are talking about Mr. Sleeping Beauty???.

3. Appointed Shahrizat as PM's advisor on 'women matters' with a capacity of a minister after she lost miserably in PRU 12. The government has to pay her unnecessarily a salary equivalent to a minister when there is a minister for that portfolio.

4. Showcasing of islam hadhari - millions of ringgit wasted without any tangible products. The crime rate keep increasing, the number of mat rempits on the rise...

5. Increasing fuel price by more than 40% less than 48 hours after declaring that there would be no hike before August 2008.

6. Telling the rakyat to tighten their belts, when he is on the opposite. This Sleeping Beauty took almost one year to move into Seri Perdana. The reason? Seri Perdana needed to be refurbished at a cost more than RM20 million. This amount can built one beautiful school in any state. (Is Sleeping Beauty was trying to tell the rakyat that Tun M and Dr. Siti Hasmah have no taste while 'occupying' Seri Perdana and most of the furnitures needed to be replaced. For record, the new prime minister of Britain never do such a thing when he/she moves into No.10, Downing Street.

I wish to refer to the counter-comment made by 'Loh' on the issue of sand-selling. I have been in the business of brokering sand selling for many years. So, pls share with us all, which part of Malaysia/Thailand/Indonesia or any other countries within South East Asia that allows their sand to be sold en masse, cross country, and at what price? or else, dont make your own assumption, because all you said about sand being abundant is a total lie. My comment about Singapore being able to cut their hills for land reclamation, I wonder if you have ever been to Singapore before, have you?

razamith said...

Crooked bridge or crooked cabinet.. only one can exist

MM said...

To Loh:

I've read several of your comments on Tun's blog.
I must say I'm impressed with your command of the English language. Unfortunately that's all there is to it, good written English. Substance of what you write? Practically zero.
I hope to read better arguments from you next time to challenge Tun's postings, not simply making motherhood statements.

Ryana said...

Salam bahagia Tun,
Sekian lama menjadi pembaca di blog Tun ini, saya merasa terpanggil untuk meninggalkan komen di blog ini.
Saya sebagai warganegara Malaysia berasa amat terkilan dengan pemimpin Malaysia ketika ini. Saya merasakan era Pak Lah sekarang ni lebih teruk dari era kegawatan ekonomi thn 1997-98. Saya merasakan menteri-menteri sekarang ini tidak bijak dalam menangani krisis yg melanda.
Dulu di zaman era Tun, Tun membuat sesuatu keputusan dengan pemikiran jangka panjang. Dulu waktu Tun menangani kegawatan ekonomi, ramai yg turut marah-marah, tetapi lama-kelamaan bila semuanya menampakkan hasil, ramai yg memuji. Bukan setakat peringkat nasional, malah cara Tun menangani masalah tersebut turut dipuji negara-negara lain.
Tun nak tahu, saya merupakan salah seorang pengagum Tun. Sampai saat ini pun saya masih mengagumi Tun. Saya menghayati setiap ucapan-ucapan Tun di TV waktu zaman Tun menjadi PM. Dan dari setiap ucapan Tun itu penuh dengan isi, gurauan sinikal dan berbentuk kritis membuatkan saya setia di depan TV jika Tun berucap. Saya tak mengendahkan kerja-kerja lain lagi sampai selesai Tun berucap. Bagi saya ucapan Tun tak pernah menjemukan, tidak mengulang-ulang frasa dan ayat yg sama walaupun Tun menyampaikan satu tujuan. Saya juga pernah menghayati ucapan Tun secara langsung di saat-saat akhir Tun menjadi PM (Waktu itu Tun menerima jemputan dari sebuah universiti tahun 2003. Dan saya masih ingat Dewan penuh dengan orang-ramai yg semuanya ingin menyaksikan Tun.) Saya cuba menghayati ucapan Pak Lah. Tiada apa yg istimewa. Menjemukan dan menyebabkan mata pun cepat mengantuk. Saya rela tak mendengarnya. Dah la ulangan benda yg sama setiap kali ucapan. Dah bertahun-tahun rasanya saya tidak mendengar ucapan Presiden semasa persidangan UMNO.Tiada apa yg menarik. Saya merasakan setiap pemimpin kena memperkasakan public speech ni. Sekurang-kurangnya pemimpin-pemimpin sebegini dapat meyakinkan rakyat dengan ucapan-ucapan mereka.
Tak kisahlah orang nak cakap Tun nyanyuk atau apa saja. Jasa Tun pada rakyat Malaysia bukan sedikit. Alangkah bagusnya jika Malaysia berjaya melahirkan lebih ramai pemimpin yg berfikiran seperti Tun.
Semoga sejahtera, Tun dan dirahmati selalu.

Libzim said...

I think all the UMNO MPs are against the wishes of the masses or the majority members. It is impossible they cannot understand the clear and comprehensive explanation in all the entries in TDM's blog. The security of their position in the party and in the government is their priority and they do not want to jeopardise that. Say what you like, they wont listen. They understand the messages from PRU12 but they just want to make maximum use of their term while they still can.If they are forced out, they want the party to be out with them.They should be forced out before the party become irrelevant as they do notlook after the interest of the grassroots.

Tun M....I suggest Tun not only write in the blog,why don't Tun publish in the special reports(media).In order to let the whole Malaysians know the true about the bloody WEAK PM(Abdullah Badawi)

Salute you..TUN DR M..

antubiul said...

Dear Commenters,

90% of the comments agreed that Abdullah Ahamad Badawi is the wrong person to lead Malaysia and shud have retired or 'pencen'. 90% of the commenters urged Tun Dr Mahatahir to continue his struggle to outsted AAB from the PM seat. 90 % of the commenters will agreed that Tun is now a very old man with a heart of a Lion and at any time anything could happen, be reminded Tun has just had his last by pass surgery last year. 90% of the commenter will agreed that Tun is doing all his best to save Malaysia but 90% of the commenters is doing nothing except commenting including of me. We have spkoen to the last election unfortunately AAB 'thinks' he still am popular with the yes men surrounding him. Our mission FAILED. Now, can the Rakyat do something to outstead AAB without Tun involvement, hey guys and gals, Tun wont be with us forever! What about organising a signature campained to proof that BN is still wanted by the people but we dont want AAB as the PM to lead Malaysia. Hey we rakyat should do something not Tun, tun has done his part as PM for Malaysia for 22 years.

Kish said...

Dear, Tun
Thanks for revealing the truth. Now i know what government trying to do with people's money. They should use the money for rakyat benifit and not to put them in trouble. I hope you can save the rakyat and stop us from suffering because of our cruel government

joehenry said...

Tun, I have never had any doubt about the strategic value of the bridge but the government kept on telling us lies why this bridge could not be built purportedly on the ground that the curved bridge could not be joined with the existing part of the bridge without the consent of the Singaporean Government. I was wondering why did we need the consent of the Singaporean Government when the bridge could be joined at the part of the existing bridge which is within the Malaysian boundary. Furthermore, if I remember correctly, the Singaporean Government had at one time agreed to the building of the bridge. Now it seems that the scrapping of the bridge had nothing to do with the technical problem as so unashamedly pronounced by the government but something nefarious on the part of the government. This is really disheartening.

Tun, when you were still the prime minister, I could see that we were gaining an edge over Singapore but all the good work has since gone down the drain. Now it seems that what this present government is doing in the Johore State is more towards supporting Singapore's economic growth rather than endeavouring to gain further edge over Singapore.

Salam Yg Disanjungi Tun,

Stumble another article of which might interest some of our beloved malaysians. Seperti macam ada relation from this historical events & our current HP6 govt & that little RED DOT down under. Dengan izin :

THE EVIL EMPIRE REVISITED

The Evil Empire has devastated hundreds of millions of lives and we are all complicit, thanks to our government(s), in the ruination of lives and exploitation of human energies.* - So, the question is: who are the real criminals and profiteers, for centuries already living in their own 'Vatican' of the finance world, their own 'State within a State'? Whodunit?



FPF - July 10th 2006 - Via a friend in London I got the story below, an article with information and facts about the top of the Evil Empire. Facts, which I know 99% of the journalists/editors and 'foreign' or other correspondents, especially in England, wouldn't even dare to report on. They are all ignorant, afraid, or - literally - 'beating around the Bush'. In their war advocating media reigns the silence of the lambs: nobody speaks about the elephant in the room* - or about where the top war profiteers of the Evil Empire's have their stables, their lair.

And that's why most of the people who read this, and who even have visited England and London , apart from those living there, have never seen any of the information below. It isn't in any of our history books anywhere, and for decades we've been fed and brainwashed with the Empire's Hollywood version of reality. Who then - and that is the right question to ask - are those responsible for all the omissions, the lies and propaganda filled history? Who holds the money and thus the power?*

And what about all those so called journalists/correspondents which were in more honest times supposed to report about all this to us; the people, whose interests they were expected to keep an eye on and defend? How can and dare they offer and try to 'sell' all the blatant lies nowadays? Parroting among others the government, secret service communiqués or one of the world's worst war propaganda sewers, the BBC, which now stands for: Broadcasting Blair's Crap?

Because the horrible consequences have been perfectly described by Manuel Valenzuela in his essay 'Of The Evil Empire' - the Imperialist Devastation of Peoples and the Evils Done in our Names -

But most propagandists are enslaved and/or 'sold' - and are like too many other people accepting the blame and shame of global massacres, confirming every day that apparently none of those miserable media minions has any decency left. They keep supporting the global genocide by the 'Evil Empire' in London, in their State within a State, as described below. Author Des Griffin was also 'following the money' - as one should to find the crooks.

THE VATICAN OF THE COMMERCIAL WORLD

In the rather unknown and very underreported book Descent into Slavery* by author Des Griffin, in chapter 6, 'The City Of London' is described, and the history of the 'Vatican of the Commercial World' explained. The stables of the 'Evil Empire' herd and it's slaves.

THE CITY

When people think of England, such terms as 'Great Britain,' 'The Queen,' 'The Crown,' 'Crown Colonies,' 'London,' 'The City of London,' and 'British Empire' come to mind and blend together into an indistinguishable blur. They are generally looked upon as synonymous, as being representative of the same basic system. During the 1950s and 1960s the author lived in England (London for five years) without even beginning to realize the vast difference that exists in the meaning of some of the above terms.

When people hear of 'The Crown' they automatically think of the King or Queen; when they hear of 'London' or the 'The City' they instantly think of the capital of England in which the monarch has his or her official residence.

TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE UNIQUE AND GENERALLY UNKNOWN SUBJECT WE MUST DEFINE OUR TERMS:

When we speak of 'The City' we are in fact referring to a privately owned Corporation - or Sovereign State - occupying an irregular rectangle of 677 acres and located right in the heart of the 610 square mile 'Greater London' area. The population of 'The City' is listed at just over four thousand, whereas the population of 'Greater London' (32 boroughs) is approximately seven and a half million.

The 'Crown' is a committee of twelve to fourteen men who rule the independent sovereign state known as London or 'The City.' 'The City' is not part of England. It is not subject to the Sovereign. It is not under the rule of the British parliament. Like the Vatican in Rome, it is a separate, independent state.

IT IS THE VATICAN OF THE COMMERCIAL WORLD.

The City, which is often called "the wealthiest square mile on earth," is ruled over by a Lord Mayor. Here are grouped together Britain's great financial and commercial institutions: Wealthy banks, dominated by the privately-owned (Rothschild controlled) Bank of England, Lloyd's of London, the London Stock Exchange, and the offices of most of the leading international trading concerns. [Such as the British Invisibles, I kid you not]. Here, also, is located Fleet Street, the heart and core of the newspaper and publishing worlds.

TWO MONARCHS

The Lord Mayor, who is elected for a one year stint, is the monarch in the City. As Aubrey Menen says in "London", Time-Life, 1976, p. 16: "The relation of this monarch of the City to the monarch of the realm [Queen] is curious and tells much." It certainly is and certainly does !

When the Queen of England goes to visit the City she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple Bar, the symbolic gate of the City. She bows and asks for permission to enter his private, sovereign State. During such State visits "the Lord Mayor in his robes and chain, and his entourage in medieval costume, outshines the royal party, which can dress up no further than service uniforms." The Lord Mayor leads the queen into his city.

The reason should be clear. The Lord Mayor is the monarch. The Queen is his subject ! The monarch always leads the way. The subject always stays a pace or two behind !

The small clique who rule the City dictate to the British Parliament. It tells them what to do, and when. In theory Britain is ruled by a Prime Minister and a Cabinet of close advisers. These 'fronts' go to great lengths to create the impression that they are running the show but, in reality, they are mere puppets whose strings are pulled by the shadowy characters who dominate behind the scenes. As the former British Prime Minister of England during the late 1800s Benjamin D'Israeli wrote: "So you see... the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes" (Coningsby, The Century Co., N.Y., 1907, p. 233).

DIPLOMATS ARE NOWADAYS NO MORE THAN OFFICE BOYS

This fact is further demonstrated by another passage from Menen's book: "The Prime Minister, a busy politician, is not expected to understand the mysteries of high finance, while the Chancellor of the Exchequer [Budget Director] is only expected to understand them when he introduces the budget. Both are advised by the permanent officials of the Treasury, and these listen to the City. If they suspect that some policy of the government will [back-fire]... it is no use their calling up British ambassadors to ask if it is so; they can find out more quickly from the City. As one ambassador complained to me, diplomats are nowadays no more than office boys, and slow ones at that.

"The City will know. They will tell the Treasury and the Treasury will tell the Prime Minister. Woe betide him if he does not listen. The most striking instance of this happened in recent history. In 1956 the then Prime Minister, Sir Anthony Eden... launched a war to regain the Suez Canal. It had scarcely begun when the City let it be known that in a few days he would have no more money to fight it; the Pound would collapse. He stopped the war and was turned out of office by his party. When the Prime Minister rises to address the Lord Mayor's banquet, he hopes that the City will put more behind him than the gold plate lavishly displayed on the sideboard" (p. 18).

THE BOND SLAVE OF THE "INVISIBLE AND INAUDIBLE" FORCE

History clearly reveals that the British government is the bond slave of the "invisible and inaudible" force centered in the City. The City calls the tune. The "visible and audible leaders" are mere puppets who dance to that tune on command. They have no power. They have no authority. In spite of all the outward show they are mere pawns in the game being played by the financial elite.

HISTORY of the 'CITY'

From the time of William the Conqueror until the middle of the seventeenth century the British Monarchs ruled supreme - their word was law. They truly were Sovereign in every sense of the word.

As British strength and influence grew around the world toward the end of the 1600s the wealth, strength and influence of the elite merchants in the City also grew - only at a faster pace. In 1694 the privately owned Bank of England (a central bank) was established to finance the profligate ways of William III. The bank was financed by a group of City merchants who used William Paterson as a 'front.' The names of the founders have never been made public.

It was at that juncture that the Bank of England and the City began to dominate and control the affairs of Britain. Their influence and wealth grew in leaps and bounds in the century that followed. "The Illustrated Universal History," 1878, records that "Great Britain emerged from her long contest with France with increased power and national glory. Her Empire was greatly expanded in all parts of the world; her supremacy on the sea was undisputed; her wealth and commerce were increased...

BUT WITH ALL THIS NATIONAL PROSPERITY, THE LOWER CLASSES OF THE ENGLISH PEOPLE WERE SUNK IN EXTREME WRETCHEDNESS AND POVERTY, HAVING BEEN BLED DRY DURING THE STRUGGLE OF THE PREVIOUS TWENTY YEARS. - [Why? - HR]

It was at this juncture (1815) that the House of Rothschild seized control of the British economy, the Bank of England and the City - and, through their other branches, control of the other European nations.

Prior to this period Britain had developed colonies and outposts in the far-flung reaches of the globe. Having been thrown out of the Western Hemisphere, Britain now concentrated on acquiring and developing additional possessions elsewhere.

During its heyday in the nineteenth century approximately 90% of all international trade was carried in British ships. Other shippers had to pay the Crown royalties or commissions for the 'privilege' of doing business on the high seas. During these years 'Britannia Ruled the Waves' through the domination of the most modern and powerful navy known up to that time.

TWO SEPARATE EMPIRES

To avoid misunderstanding, it is important that the reader recognize the fact that two separate empires were operating under the guise of the British Empire. One was the Crown Empire and the other was the British Empire.

All the colonial possessions that were white were under the Sovereign - i.e. under the authority of the British government. Such nations as the Union of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada were governed under British law. These only represented thirteen percent of the people who made up the inhabitants of the British Empire.

All the other parts of the British Empire - nations like India, Egypt, Bermuda, Malta, Cyprus and colonies in Central Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong and Gibraltar (those areas inhabited by the browns, yellows and blacks) were all Crown Colonies. These were not under British rule. The British parliament had no authority over them.

THEY WERE PRIVATELY OWNED AND RULED BY A PRIVATE CLUB IN LONDON, ENGLAND KNOWN AS THE CROWN.

The Crown's representative in such areas held the absolute power of life and death over all the people under his jurisdiction. There were no courts and no method of appeal or retribution against a decision rendered by the representatives of the Crown. Even a British citizen who committed a crime in a Crown colony was subject to the Crown law. He couldn't appeal to British law as it didn't apply.

As the Crown owned the committee known as the British government there was no problem getting the British taxpayer to pay for naval and military forces to maintain the Crown's supremacy in these areas. Any revolts were met with terrible retribution by the British navy at no cost to the Crown.

The City reaped fantastic profits from its operations conducted under the protection of the British armed forces. This wasn't British commerce and British wealth. The international bankers, prosperous merchants and the British aristocracy who were part of the 'City' machine accumulated vast fortunes which they lavishly squandered in their pursuit of prestige and standing in British Society. Had the wealth been spread out among all the people in the British Isles prosperity would have abounded. [I am not suggesting that this should have been done, the thefts from the exploited should never have occurred to begin with - ralph].

In spite of the wealth of the world flowing into the City the majority of the British people were barely making ends meet. Many were impoverished to the point of despair. The elite lived in regal splendor. The poor British peasants were never given a chance to get a cut of the action.

"TOTAL DISREGARD OR OPEN CONTEMPT DISPLAYED BY THE ARISTOCRACY"

Simon Haxey in "England's Money Lords Tory M.P.," drew his readers' attention to the "total disregard or open contempt displayed by the aristocracy" towards the British people. He also asked, "What part do the colonial people play in the battle for democracy when they themselves have no democratic rights and the British governing class refuses to grant such rights" (pp. 114,115) [we all know the difference between democracy and republics I hope - ralph]

David Lloyd George, a future prime minister, emphasized the power of the City and its total contempt for the "wretches" who were not part of the 'club.' In a 1910 speech he stated: "We do most of the business of the world. We carry more international trade - probably ten times more - than Germany. Germany carries her own trade largely. The international trade is ours. Well, we do not do it for nothing. As a matter of fact, our shipping brings us over a hundred millions (pounds) a year, mostly paid by that wretched foreigner. I'm taxing the foreigner for all I know... You've heard a good deal of talk here, probably, about the exportation of capital abroad. There is no way in which we can make the foreigner pay more... We get the foreigner in four ways by that. The first way we leave to Lord Rothschild..." ("Better Times", published 1910).

About seventy years ago Vincent Cartwright Vickers stated that "...financiers in reality took upon themselves, perhaps not the responsibility, but certainly the power of controlling the markets of the world and therefore the numerous relationships between one nation and another, involving international friendship and mistrusts... Loans to foreign countries are organized and arranged by the City of London with no thought whatsoever of the nation's welfare but solely in order to increase indebtedness upon which the City thrives and grows rich...

THROUGH OWNERSHIP OF A LARGE PORTION OF THE PRESS

This national and mainly international dictatorship of money which plays off one country against another and which, through ownership of a large portion of the press, converts the advertisement of its own private opinion into a semblance of general public opinion, cannot for much longer be permitted to render Democratic Government a mere nickname. Today, we see through a glass darkly; for there is so much which 'it would not be in the public interest to divulge'..." (E.C. Knuth, "Empire of 'The City'", p. 65).

All of the above points were stressed by Roland G. Usher on pages 80, 83 and 84 of "Pan Germanism," written in 1913: "The London and Par

A'Kum Y.Bhg.Tun,

Malaysia menjadi negara yang malang, tidak lagi bermaruah dan kedaulatannya tergugat disebabkan Negara ini dipimpin oleh PM yang tidak berkebolehan dan lemah.
Daripada pembatalan jambatan Johor, permohonan maaf kepada kerajaan China, pembebasan 25 pelampau Hindraf, lemahnya peranan Malaysia dalam OIC, lelongan Agusta, pembinaan jambatan kedua Penang, Ex-gratia payment dan pelbagai perkara lagi yang langsung tidak menunjukkan kewibawaan Pak Lah sebagai pemimpin, Pak Lah memang tak layak sebagai pemimpin kerana banyak tindakannya bagaikan orang yang perlu dipimpin.
Saya yakin seluruh rakyat Malaysia terkejut dengan keputusan kerajaan Pak Lah membatalkan projek jambatan tersebut, ini kerana jambatan itu juga adalah simbol maruah dan kedaulatan negara ini selain dari perbelanjaan tinggi yang sudah dilaburkan. Pak Lah tanpa rasa bersalah telah menggadaikan maruah negara dengan keputusan yang paling bodoh dan dilakukan secara tiba-tiba. Saya sedang memandu kereta ketika mendengar pengunguman berkenaan dan hampir terhenti di tengah jalan kerana terkejut dan amat kecewa.
Saya amat faham jika Y.Bhg Tun dan rakyat Johor begitu marah dengan pembatalan tersebut kerana saya dan penduduk Sabah yang lain juga sakit hati dengan tindakan gopoh dan bodoh Pak Lah.
Saya rasa Pak Lah orang yang tidak tahu erti malu dan tiada harga diri sebab itulah dia buat selamba walaupun banyak buat kesilapan demi kesilapan malah enggan mengundur diri walaupun kalah dan dibelasah teruk semasa PR12 yang lalu. Kami orang2 Sabah (terutama Melayu/Muslim) tetap mengundi UMNO walaupun tak suka Pak Lah kerana kami tidak mahu undi Melayu/Muslim Sabah berpecah kerana pengalaman Melayu/Muslim tidak bersatu semasa era PBS amatlah perit. Sebab itu YB dari UMNO Sabah tak akan melompat walaupun ada antara mereka mungkin begitu menyampah dengan Pak Lah kerana pengundi Melayu/UMNO tidak akan sekali-kali membenarkannya.
Hari ini Pak Lah ibarat tikus yang membaiki labu yang kononnya cuba memperbaiki parti dan kerajaan tetapi kerana kebodohannya dia tak sedar yang Pak Lah hanyalah ibarat tikus yang berlagak pandai.

Dear Tun, have you ever considered setting up another blog as a online Think Tank platform for Malaysian citizens?

I believe that there's no Think tank organization at all in Malaysia.

All these talk and blog you've posted here are all mainly words in the air. Can the average Malaysian citizen be more powerful by deriving more positive actions via setting up a Think Tank?

What we need is positive action, NOT Riots or more conflicts but derive strategy that'll able to avoid anymore such incidents in future slowly.

Do advise whether am I providing any helpful suggestion or not.

Trojan Horse said...

Askum YABhg Tun. Tahniah sekali lagi atas posting terbaru ini. Jelas sekali tindak-tanduk kerajaan Pak Dolah ini memang tiada wawasan, hanya stop-gap measures bertujuan mengeksploitasi keadaan bagi keuntungan keluarga dan kroni. Apa yg ada terdpt dlm kerajaan sekarang adalah 'political opportunists' bukan pemimpin rakyat sejati, bukan pejuang agama, bangsa dan negara, tidak serupa ayahnda sprt Tun Razak dahulu. Saya kira kalau negara berhadapan dgn sesuatu bencana, tindak tanduk mereka hanya berasas berapa keuntungan yg mereka boleh perolehi out of the sufferings of others.
Saya ada terbaca dlm satu bblog (jebatmustdie) yg menyiar semula satu article ditulis oleh Menteri Kewangan 2, TS Mohd Nor mengenai bagaimana beliau dipanggil oleh Tun dlm peristiwa krisis m/wang a/bangsa tahun 1988. TS Mohd Nor was full of praise for Tun's ability to understand and master the intricacies and technicalities of the world monetary system and on top of it, to introduce measures to save Msia from the colonial masters at IMF and the World Bank. TS Nor seems like an honest man. Yet I just wonder what is his role in shaping Pak Dollah's economic policies or has he become another 'political opportunist' after becoming an elected wakil rakyat.
To Tun, pls also write on the various 'development' corridors esp Wilayah Iskandar. Will it become another 'Pulau Putih Mata'?

Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa melindungi Tun dan Keluarga dari kejahatan dan fitnah manusia.

Tun,

Great Explanation. I agree with you, Tun. i really think Abdullah is making a mockery of the goverment. Please post more of the truth.

Salam buat Tun,
terima kasih atas penjelasan berfakta dan trasparent.
selama ini sy mmg kecewa dengan keputusan paklah batalkan projek jambatan indah. nampak bacul pada singapura dan gagal melihat kepentingan jambatan tu untuk masa depan. dengan adanya jambatan tu banyak kelebihan sama ada kepada rakyat kedua pihak, swasta-perniagaan, pelabuhan dan kerajaan ng/persekutuan boleh dimanfaatkan.
pentingnya kepada ptp dan aliran pengangkutan air tak dapat dinafikan.
Pastinya singapura terjejas namun secara gentleman kerana persaingan secara adil dan sihat, kita tidak menutup periuknya tetapi kita buka luas periuk nasi kita. tak dapat kesemua, cukuplah separuh saja jambatan tu disebelah Malaysia dengan modal kita demi survivor masa depan.
sekarang ni bila dah batalkan jambatan tu, harap jgn sesekali timbang keperluan membina kereta api laju sampai ke singapura. mereka nak sangat kereta api laju sebab menguntungkan diorang. hub lapangan terbang antarabangsa changi dan pelabuhan mereka makin pesat dengan adanya jalinan kereta api pantas dan moden sementara pelabuhan dan airport kita akan muram. dalam situasi ni mereka amat bersetuju sebab berpihak kepada mereka. asyik nak untung lebih ja, jiran (kita) cuba ditindas.
suatu ketika, mahu tak mahu kita perlu bersedia berkonfrantasi andai maruah dan keselamatan kita tergugat. mereka senang mengadakan pakatan dan berurusan dengan israel dan negara2 yang menyokong kemandirian israel itu sendiri tanpa ada sensitiviti terhadap jiran rumpun melayu/islam. bukan memulakan konfrantasi tetapi kita perlu bersedia kerana perkara ini tidak mustahil berlaku.
andai singapura sebesar malaysia dah lama kita ditindas tetapi mereka kecil manakala pembangunan dan urbanisasi mencapai tahap optimum, ketika ini keperluan mendapatkan tanah amat diharapkan demi ekonomi, survivor dan pertahanan negara bergelar temasik suatu ketika dulu. jangan dipandang rendah, mereka kecil2 cili padi dengan kekuatan bala tenteranya.
penubuhan wpi umpama orang mengantuk disorongkan bantal bagi singapura. kesian orang2 johor yang rela paksa menjual tanah atas nama pembangunan mega. berpatutankah harga tanah yang dibayar dan apa jaminan anak cucu mereka suatu hari nanti, jangan merempat dinegeri sendiri umpama lagu 'Anak Kecil Main Api'. status tanah bumiputera tergadai dan pasti gagal direbut kembali bila dijual. cukupkah dan berbaloikah wang, kita begitu pelahab dan tamak demi imbuhan segera tanpa memikirkan kesan jangka panjang. Allah Maha Besar, cukuplah setakat ini dulu. Moga Tun dikurniakan kesihatan, kewarasan dan berkeupayaan membimbing secara langsung dan tidak langsung demi agama, bangsa dan negara tercinta.

Dear Che Det,

Tun is a "Vision 2020 Developer" created mega projects like KLCC, Proton, Penang Bridge, FI circuit, Langkawi projecs, Menara Telekom, Sepang International Airport, Putrayaya, LRT, Monorail and many mega projects using taxpayers funds for the benefits of the people and country.

Pak Lah is a "Corridor Dreamer" that he has yet to deliver a single proven sucessful mega project todate and all his dream corridor projects are on papers only with no action and talk a lot only but billions of taxpayers funds utilized but not supported and not substantiated by any completed mega projects.

Rakyat Malaysia are damn sour, anger and regret to know huge public funds were misused and mismanaged by civil servants and government agencies as reported by the General Audit and Akauntan Negara. No actions have been taken against any culprits by AG on such bad cases. Rakyat Malaysia deserved to know the all answers from Pak Lah government instead of listening to his bad taste announcements of prices increased for petrol, rice, electricity, flour, windfall tax and essential foods. No actions to resolve the decline in economy and financial deficit problems in Malaysia. After 12thGE, Rakyat Malaysia only listening to the crying of spoilt milk on the defeat of BN to rule the prosperous states where all BN leaders cannot continued to take advantages in milking more wealth from the five states controlled by Pakatan Rakyat.

WHAT A SHAME ?

TUN is damn RIGHT to quit his new party founded by him since TUN has lost faith in the present leadership. TUN has continued to voice out disastisfaction on how they are going to destroy the resources of the country, misused of public funds, misused of power for their own benefits and enrich their cronies and families and also victimised the people of Malaysia.

Rakyat Malaysia invite TUN to participate and join the entire nation to protest the prices hike for petrol and electricity in the forthcoming nation rally at KLCC in July 2008.

TUN - YOU ARE WANTED BY PEOPLE OF MALAYSIA TO RESCUE AND SAVE OUR BELOVED MALAYSIA.

HIDUP RAKYAT & HIDUP TUN !

IN GOD WE TRUST ,

BANGSA SEMUA KAUM MALAYSIA

Terrance said...

Dearest Tun,

I strongly believe you did a GREAT JOB in our national automotive industry, the so called PROTON.

The consequences are:
1. Government’s effort to minimize the country’s deficit and to maximize development budget has been badly affected by the subsidy of fuel price.
2. People suffer because they can’t afford the increased fuel price.
3. Japanese Hybrid car such as Toyota Prius and Honda Civic and European compact diesel engine can have 2 to 3 times higher city mileage compared to Proton Iswara. This means if the crude oil goes up to USD500/ barrel, they can still sustain.
4. If Proton still exists, we as Malaysians would not be able to enjoy good cars (high mileage and high efficiency) at a low price.

Tun, have you ever thought of how to ensure that a fresh graduate would have a starting pay of RM1500/ month, a RM300 Fixed Deposit savings per month and can afford to hire a Toyota Camry when they want to balik kampong once in a while instead of asking RM500 from their parents every end of the month?

This can be achieved if they can go to work via public transports instead of driving a car. During the 22 year tenure of you being Prime Minister, a good and integrated public transportation system should have been the top priority instead of all other mega projects which you place importance in such as Proton, twin tower, Putrajaya and etc.

If you pay a visit to KTM station in Bangi and Kajang, you will realize how terrible the train stations are. How can these stations be designed, approved and constructed? We don’t expect to have one single train which can be diverted to two or three different final destinations or running at 300 to 500 km/ hr like Japan but vision 2020 will arrive in less than 12 years. Japanese in the 1980s would never build such train stations such as our current ones. I don’t agree with Pak Lah’s approach but the difficulties that the country faces today are triggered by you.

Anyway, if Tun wishes to hear the truth from the people, we are ready to give full support to your blog.

Tun M, please continue.

Tun M, we need to know the truth... I was really frustrated when Pak Lah announced the cancellation of the bridge...

Truly, I can't see how our country is moving forward with the current administration. 2020, seems bleak now. Where are we, how much have we progressed, what have we achieved so far to become a developed nation?

Tun, you are our 'suara' rakyat.

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Saya ingin berkongsi pengalaman mengenai kesan pengorekan pasir yang dijalankan di pantai timur Johor yang mungkin tidak disedari ramai pihak.

Pertama kali saya tiba di Pulau Tioman adalah pada tahun 1996. Ketika itu, pulau tersebut telah dinamakan sebagai 10 buah pulau tercantik di dunia. Saya kembali semula ke Pulau Tioman pada tahun 1997. Saya amat terkejut melihatkan pantainya yang telah terhakis terutamanya di Teluk Tekek meninggalkan batu-batu di pantai. Dalam hati tertanya-tanya, bagaimana ianya boleh berlaku.

Ketika itu kerja-kerja pengorekan pasir di pantai timur Johor telah pun bermula. Pada pendapat saya, ini lah puncanya. Pasir-pasir dari kawasan lain akan memenuhi lubang-lubang yang ditinggalkan kesan pengorekan.

Akibatnya, pantai-pantai menjadi terhakis akibat pergerakan pasir dan dalam masa yang sama memusnahkan habitat marin.

Seperti yang Tun nyatakan, negara lain mendapat keuntungan, kita juga yang terpaksa menanggung akibatnya. Cubalah fikirkan, apa yang boleh kita wariskan kepada generasi akan datang? Sekian

Salam Ayahanda,
Ayahandalah yang berhati 'emas'
yang anakanda rakyat mencari2 selama ini.
Dalam cahaya ada cahaya!

Izinkan,

Kepada Anakanda rakyat sekelian,
Perbagai cadangan untuk berkenal sua dengan Ayahanda telah diutarakan. Namun masih belum ada organisasi nya.
Siapakah yang hendak memulakan?

Kami bukan tidak tergerak, hati tetapi terpaksa menumpukan masa bagi majlis puteri kami tidak lama lagi.
Kami percaya ada diantara anakanda rayat yang sayangkan AYAHANDA RAKYAT yang berkelapangan masa dan keringat sekurang2nya menganjurkan satu perhimpunan kenal sua yang tidak bermotif politik atau tunjuk perasaan.
Persoalan nya, adakah perhimpunan yang berniat mulia boleh mendapat restu Menteri Dalam Negeri khasnya Polis Duraja Malaysia?
Kami percaya, Ayahanda lah orang yang pertama membantah sekeras apa jua perhimpunan yang bermotif ‘ingkar’(gugat) kepada keselamatan Negara!
Dalam masaketika memikirkan kaedah yang paling sesuai, apakah kita 'feel the ground' dahulu untuk melihat kesungguhan anakanda2 penyokong kepada hasrat yang murni ini.
Cara yang kami syorkan adalah,
Dari mulai hari ini, kita sekelian memulakan perbahasan di blog Chedet.com dengan hanya satu penghormatan
'Salam AYAHANDA RAKYAT'
jika keikhlasan kita daatang dari
hati(jiwa dan raga')kepada seorang hamba Allah yang kita sudah anggap sebagai ayah kita sendiri.

Terimalah Salam Kasih kami,
AYAHANDA RAKYAT, Tun Dr. Mahathir
Terimalah Salam Kasih kami,
BONDA Tun Siti Hasmah

WE, the rakyat will love and pray for the well being of Ayahanda seisi keluarga, Always!

Alfatihah, Amin.

abe MIE nak cakap sedikit pasal pembukaan keahlian PAS diberikan keahlian PAS dari kalangan orang Cina dan India kepada PKR? Kenapa PAS tidak bubarkan parti itu dan menyertai PKR? Sedangkan Anwar al-juburi akan jadi PM nanti!!!

Atau PKR bubar, dan ahlinya menjadi PAS. Kan sama. Kenapa dalam Pakatan Rakyat-PR memerlukan dua parti yang hampir persamaan iaitu pelbagai kaum satu politik? Adakah PAS dan PKR masing-masing tidak percaya antara satu sama yang lain?

PAS kini sudah tidak KEDENGARAN LAGI TENTANG SLOGAN MEMBANGUN BERSAMA ISLAM DAN MELAKSANAKAN HUKUM HUDUD. NEGERI DIPERINTAHNYA, KELANTAN, PERAK DAN KEDAH TIDAK PULA KEDENGARAN AKAN DILAKSANAKAN HUDUD. KENAPA??? ADAKAH ALLAH LAYAK DIPANGGIL OLEH AGAMA KRISTIAN, ALLAH BUDDHA, ALLAH JESUSS, ALLAH SIDHU?

yang abe MIE faham, PAS hanya pakar dan pintar dalam mengkafirkan UMNO dan sanggup berjihad melawan UMNO.

Jembatan Bengkok

kata chedet.com ini perlu, tak boleh tunggu

kata aab, tunggu...usah bengkok begitu. lurus 'kan lebih elok

kata chedet.com, lurus satu desakan
agar pasir, tanah dan ruang angkasa dapat didagang seiring tambakan demi tambakan

chedet.com dan aab berlaga hujah

anak watan buat karenah. tak mahu menggadai tanah biar sekangkang kera

aab marah

jembatan bengkok tinggal rajah cuma

chedet.com menuding jarinya

nun di atas bukit ada seekor gajah putih; sebuah pusat KIK (Kastam, Imigresen dan Kuarantin)

Salam YABhg Tun,

Si bodoh pun boleh berfikir!

Pak Lah ingat ini jambatan berharga 2 ringgit ke, suka-suka nak batal?

Pak Lah ingat nak pekena TDM, tapi rakyat tidak bodoh.

Para MP Johor bacul lagi memualkan. Bersekongkol membuncitkan perut masing-masing. Masa TDM nak buat projek mereka juga yang sokong bagai nak gila, bila Pak Lah nak batal mereka juga yang sokong gila-gila, lepas tu kondem TDM.

Yang lagi memualkan adalah apabila Pak Lah dan konco-konco baculnya menyatakan bahawa orang Johor tidak setuju pembinaan jambatan tersebut.

Rakyat Johor yang mana?

Kami tahulah para MP Johor nak jaga periuk nasi masing-masing, agar perut semakin buncit, tapi pakai otak sikitlah, jagalah kehendak sebenar rakyat Johor yang dah undi kamu.

Sebagai anak Johor,kami malu punya wakil rakyat seperti anda semua.

Dulu semasa TSMY jadi MB Johor, siGhani dan konco-konconya bukan main lagi fitnah TSMY jual tanah Melayu kepada orang singapura, terutama di kempas. Apa dah jadi hari ini?

YAB Ghani! WPI , Danga Bay, siapa untung? Jelaskan pada rakyat apa dah jadi dengan KPRJ. Siapa Vincent Tan, siapa Datuk Lim? kami nak tahu apa hubungan mereka dengan Danga Bay, Lido water front? siapa yang dapat tanah ladang getah untuk hutan YPJ berjumlah 30000 ekar?

Jelaskan pada rakyatlah secara jujur!!!

YABhg Tun,

Kenapa Singapura Menentang Pembinaan Jambatan Tun!

Singapura sedar bahawa pembinaan jambatan yang Tun cadangkan akan merugikannya bukan dari segi wang ringgit tetapi TANAH. Itulah kesimpulan saya. Kenapa tidak? Bila Malaysia membina jambatan tersebut, bererti air akan bebas mengalir di Selat Tebrau. Bila air bebas mengalir terjadilah arus. Sepertimana yang kita tahu, arus boleh menyebabkan hakisan tanah. Bukan itu sahaja, ombak dari kapal-kapal yang lalu di selat tersebut akan mempercepatkan lagi proses hakisan ini. Bayangkan kesan hakisan ini dalam tempoh 10 atau 20 tahun akan datang. Ianya merupakan satu malapetaka besar bagi Singapura kerana hakisan tanah boleh menjadi negaranya lebih sempit. Satu cara untuk mengatasi hakisan tanah adalah dengan menambak laut. Sebab itulah, pada pendapat saya, Singapura akhirnya bersetuju untuk turut serta membina jambatan baru di Tambak Johor apabila kita bersedia untuk menjual pasir kepadanya – pasir yang sangat-sangat diperlukannya untuk menambak laut bukan sahaja untuk mengatasi hakisan tetapi juga untuk meluaskan tanahnya. Permintaan untuk mengunakan ruang angkasa kita hanya sebagai selimut untuk menutup tujuan utama, iaitu keperluannya untuk pasir. Sekian.

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Moga Tun dalam keadaan sihat walafiat.

Lama sebelum Tun posting penjelasan mengenai isu-isu ini, orang biasa seperti saya dapat baca dengan mudah semua tindakan dan keputusan yang telah dibuat oleh DSAAB. Memang benar.. tak perlu sama sekali tunjuk bukti.. cukup jelas "SUDAH TERANG LAGI BERSULUH".

Jambatan bengkok, Landasan kereta berkembar dan M.V Augusta sesungguhnya adalah mercu kejayaan Malaysia.

Jambatan bengkok adalah satu kemenangan yang dicapai dalam satu peperangan yang paling bersih dalam sejarah tamadun manusia.

Sayang M.V Agusta.. bersusah payah kita dapat, senang-senang saja jual, konon rugi tapi pemilik baru jual sebahagian saja boleh dapat balik modal asal. Hasrat kita utk bina sendiri enjin proton menggunakan infrastruktur M.V Agusta nampaknya tak kesampaian..

Byk lagi isu spt ECM Libra perlu juga Tun jelaskan, saya nampak dengan jelas terdapat usaha-usaha oleh petualang bangsa untuk meruntuhkan kedaulatan negara yang tercinta ini. Dalam kes ini karakter Sazali dlm filem "ANAK KU SAZALI" terserlah, cuma dlm kes ini tajuk tu kena pinda sedikit.. "Lu fikir la sendir".

niamz said...

i'm on neutral side. maybe im not ur fan but i like ur personality n your vision eventho u still make some mistake before. i was studying in skudai when the jambatan bengkok still in progress. i can see ur why u wanna make it happen.

i always take my time see the sea view from the danga bay or setulang beach. from the smell i know the ecosystem is really mess up coz the tambak it self. blocking the water flow. this is the 1st time i see the real design. gosh, what a plan.
even me never think of it. beautiful design also. so thats why ppl call it "jambatan bengkok".

My personal opinion, i dont see why should PL should continue as a prime min. I dont feel any leader "aura" from him. he failed planning
malaysia future. he has short minded. i dont see any improvement he bought. he's idea only a sracth idea without any strong fact to support it. i hate his speech coz i think other ppl make it for him. he is a leader, why should he fully read his text!!. even it's only a small things, as a guy who tech other ppl, i can sense his personality. boring..

i know that u never will not be our
pm again. coz ur say it so. give us ur idea how to make malaysia moving forward till 2020. even after 2020. we malaysian love our country but really blur n need some guidance. we will make it happen even we been rule by real dictators.

i miss ur speech. somehow make my nationalisme go high. even my speech got some influence from yours style :P

petrol already "naik minyak". maybe
u should sell ur book more cheaper.
i want to read it coz never read it before. if u wanna give it free. i can give my home address. my hp will be a bonus if u make it happen :P

Is this what you want for your country & rakyat? Bak kata pepatah; "Keluar Mulut Harimau, Masuk Mulut Buaya..." Sanggupkah Tun sekiranya keadaan menjadi sebegitu rupa?

oaklandnaw said...

Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun Dr Mahathir yang dikasihi,

Walaupun kini ayahanda dikecam dan ditohmah oleh "talam-talam" dua muka, tapi saya percaya orang yang sama akan menyatakan "kesedihan atas kehilangan TDM" apabila ayahanda dipanggil Ilahi. Masa itu, kalau ditemubual di TV atau press, mereka akan beriya-ia memuji ayahanda. Sekarang ini, saya begitu meloya dengan perbuatan mereka yang hipokrit dan kacang lupakan kulit, serta tidak bersyukur dengan nikmat yang Allah beri semasa ayahanda Tun berkuasa.

Berkenaan dengan jambatan bengkok ini, anakanda telah lama tidak bersetuju dengan pembatalannya. Kenapa, sebagai pencinta alam sekitar semula jadi, betapa kita telah melanggar sunnahtullah dengan membina tambakan yang menghalang aliran air semula jadi di selat tebrau. Lihatlah betapa "gelap" dan kotor air di sekitar tambak. Hanya orang yang telah "buta mata hati" dan "pekak pendengaran minda"nya yang bersetuju akan pembatalan itu.

Walaupun anakanda bukannya ahli perniagaan dan ekonomi, tapi secetek-cetak pengetahuan dalam bidang ini, anakanda nampak peluang jambatan akan merancakkan ekonomi negara yang memberi manfaat kepada rakyat. Tapi ramai rupanya pemimpin yang kata pandai (ahli) - hanya pandai bersandiwara dan mengejar populariti.

Seperkara lagi, kenapa ramai yang baru sedar sekarang apabila membaca blog ayahanda. Kenapa tidak dulu? Pada hal, apa yang ayahanda katakan dalam blog ini, hampir 75% telah ayahanda katakan dalam mana-mana media semasa pembatalan tersebut, walaupun press pro-kerajaan cuba menyelindung 25%. Pembangkang - tak terkata apa ...sebab kerja mereka adalah membangkang...

Tapi, saya tak sangka pula...kerajaan AAB termasuk menteri yang ada pada zaman ayahanda dulu - boleh menjadi PEMBANGKANG kepada JAMBATAN ini. Jadi 25% fakta tersembunyi telah ayahanda jelaskan dalam blog ini.

Saya mungkin ada jawapannya "TIDAK PEKA" ataupun PEKAK dengan isu semasa. Yang lagi haru biru, TV dan radio kerajaan - interview berapa rakyat yang menyokong pembatalan - terutama TV sensasi dan RTM. Dan terus membuat inferens bahawa semua rakyat bersetuju. Pak Dollah pula kata, "kita ikut kehendak rakyat". Soalnya siapa yang dipimpin...adakah rakyat memimpin Perdana Menteri...

Masa zaman ayahanda 1981-2003, saya faham apa maksud pemimpin. Sekarang dah bercelaru dan haru biru...mungkin apa yang ada merupakan TAKRIFAN baru makna pemimpin.

Terima kasih ayahanda atas segalanya. Anakanda berapa bersyukur kepada Allah, kerana mendapat bimbingan dari ayahada dalam cara berfikir walaupun ayahanda Tun tidak mengenali anakanda. Semenjak ayahanda anakanda sendiri meninggal dunia pada tahun 1981, ayahanda Tun menggantikan peranan ayahanda yang telah tiada - kerana beliau juga seperti Tun merupakan pejuang UMNO asal yang membara dengan perjuangan tulin untuk masyarakat, agama dan negara. Ayahanda juga merupakan guru anakanda dalam cara berfikir dan bertindak berani untuk mengambil risiko atas segala keputusan yang dibuat.

Semoga Allah memberi keberkatan dan rahmahnya kepada Ayahanda Tun dan Bonda Siti Hasmah.
Terima kasih ayahanda atas segalanya.

Dari segi logicnyer walaupon tak pakai prinsip archimedes ke prinsip pascal ke prinsip charles law ke sy tahu memang tu je cara nak buat jambatan yg kapal boleh lalu bawah.... tak menjadi benteng kapal... dapat mengurangkan speed... almaklum org malaysia melaju je... bayangkan jambatan tu lurus je... pastu buat tinggi bagi kapal lalu... kat hujung tu nak buat menjunam ke? hampeh..... bagi panjang mudah nak design naik turun... hampeh... ingat nak buat jambatan longkang ka???

SEMANGAT PERJUANGAN BARU PERLU DIBAKAR OLEH TUN !!!!!!!

Tun, kepincangan pentadbiran Pak Lah ini adalah warisan dari Tun sendiri namun saya bangga kerana Tun menampakkan keinsafan di atas segala perilaku "salah" kerajaan BN skrang ini.

Saya lbh terharu di atas usaha Tun utk menegakkan keadilan dalam masa beberapa tahun kebelakangan ini. Saya bukanlah pro mahupun kuncu Tun, yg saya inginkan adl perubahan kpd kepemimpinan BN skrang.

Pakatan Rakyat bakal menjelmakan diri sbg Hero baru dalam masa yg terdekat dan jika BN masih mahu meneruskan perjuangan rakyat, perubahan kena dilakukan.

Saya melihat tindak balas anak2 Tun terhadap kepimpinan Pak Lah dan barisan kuncu2nya bukanlah suatu langkah yg positif memandangkan tujuan Tun dan anak2 serta yg sekepala dgn visi perjuangan Tun adl utk melihat BN gah di persada politik Malaysia utk satu jangka masa yg berpanjangan.

Begitu jg dgn kaedah guna pakai yg dipraktikkan oleh Tun buat masa ini adl tidak praktikal. Tun sendiri tahu bhw Tun masih mempunyai pengaruh & pengikut di persada politik Malaysia, so mengapa tidak bermula dr langkah awal iaitu dgn me"rekrut" barisan generasi baru sbg tunjang kpd perjuangan Tun dan anak2.

Sepanjang hidup saya, politik BN sama ada di bawah pemerintahan Tun atau Pak Lah tidak menampakkan byk perbezaan dari segi membawa kebaikan kpd rakyat.

Namun "Jatuh" nya kedudukan Tun skrang ini tlh menginsafkan diri Tun dan Tun blh nampak segala kejelekan yg dilakukan oleh pemimpin2 didikan Tun sendiri.

Utk merubahnya, Tun kena mula dr bawah spt yg saya cadangkan. Mulakan langkah awal dgn mencari pimpinan generasi baru yg berpotensi di setiap Negeri dan cawangan seluruh Malaysia.

Saya sendiri akan mempastikan bhw perjuangan Tun dpt diteruskan di Sabah jika Tun mahu lakukannya. Jika Tun pernah membina semula UMNO Baru, maka apakah Tun masih lagi berminat utk membina UMNO Baru(02)?

Apakah Tun takut utk melakukannya sekali lagi atau Tun dan anak2 mahu menyambut seruan saya? Perjuangan dgn misi dan visi yg lebih telus perlu dilakarkan kembali agar Malaysia tidak terumbang-ambing akibat perebutan kuasa politik yg tdk menentu.

Saya yakin ramai pemuda-pemudi di seluruh Malaysia mampu menyahut seruan Tun jika Tun benar2 mahu melakukannya. Jgn lah setakat hangat2 tahi ayam, sekadar melepaskan batuk di tangga.

Jika Tun benar2 mahu melakukan revolusi tsb, saya akan menjadi individu pertama dr SABAH utk membantu usaha TUN.

Btol jgk kan..ape gune pasir???
Tkyah simpan2. Kite korek pasir byk2 kt M'sia ni, kite jual pd s'pore. Kite korek bagi smpi habis terus pasir kt M'sia!! Biar smpi silap2 aribulan, tanah S'pore lg besar/luas dr tnh semenanjung M'sia...lgpon,org kite mane reti gune pasir kan..??

1 lg, kite biar la kroni2 'org tu' tu je yg dpt projek tu. Biar kaya-raya anak-beranak 'dia' sorg. Ape salahnye,anak-beranak n kroni2 'dia' rakyat M'sia jgk kan? Kalau kt M'sia ni anak-beranak die SAHAJA yg kaya-raya pn ape salahnye kan? Rakyat M'sia jgk...btol tu..

Biar kite sume papa kedana, jual pasir/tanah pd negara pembelot tu..Kemudian bg kaya-raya pd anak-beranak/kroni2 'org tu' SHJ.....btol2..

As told by an ex-member of UMNO ….

Once upon a time,

Crooked Bridge met Crooked PM.

Crooked PM tried to work out a crooked deal with his friendly neighbour who was then hungry for sand and air space for her military aircraft.

Crooked PM tried to negotiate with the rakyat of Johore but to no avail though the bridge could be straight instead of curve.

As a result, the Crooked PM cancelled the bridge project because he got annoyed and frustrated after the crooked deal was not successful.

Now the vast majority of Malaysians came to realise of the reasons why the bridge was designed to be crooked after the once powerful UMNO ex-member told the truth of the crooked story in his popular blog.

All Malaysians salute him for this daring revelation. He is the Tun of all Tuns in Malaysia.

Today, the causeway remains as a straight “bridge” but the curve bridge would be remained as a piece of creative artwork of the Crooked PM’s predecessor. Not only large amount of rakyat’s money was spent for this crooked project, the end result of the Crooked PM’s decision had also gave birth to many white elephants for Johoreans to admire and for our good neighbour to laugh and laugh!!

Well, hopefully by year 2020, the original painting or drawing of the crooked bridge could be auctioned by the world’s first fine art auctioneer, The Christie’s, for a handsome sum of money. This may be a good idea after all.

Goodbye to the crooked bridge and good luck to the crooked PM. As for the “designer” and advocate of the crooked bridge project -- please stay strong and take good care of your health as we want you to continue blogging to shame and rid the crooked politicians.

Salam sejahtera Tun,
Saya menyenangi alasan MatPyan yang menyatakan WPI (dulu) dilaksanakan semata-mata adalah untuk Singapura. Singapura dapat membeli tanah di WPI dan lebih baik daripada pembelian pasir. Sekali gus hak menggunakan udara Johor.
PAKLAH dan KJ mungkin menerima habuan daripada Singapura dengan pembatalan projek jembatan bengkok saja.

Dear TunM,

You have written so many, BUT Pak Lah is still anchored to the Prime Minister's chair.

Your words, your write ups has opened some minds but please we hope for a bigger Tsunami.

PakLah isn't moving an inch becoz and mayhap people closest and around him wants him "there".

OH GOD!! HAVE MERCY FOR US RAKYAT. WE DONT KNOW WHAT IS NEXT IN HIS MIND, MAYHAP IMF / WORLD BANK?

Atap_Rumbia said...

Dear Tun,
you are totaly right about this issue. Pak Lah has made a very wrong call by cancelling the construction of Jambatan Indah to Singapore. But what makes me so angry to Pak Lah at the time was because of his statement saying that the citizens of MALAYSIA doesn't like the construction of the bridge especially by the Johorians. Come on! Doesn't he have any better excuses for the people of MALAYSIA? And after the cancellation of the bridge he creates the WPI which is also give favors to Singapore...what is wrong with the recent government?

Bot peronda negara jiran halang nelayan Malaysia di Pulau Merambong
09/06/2008 7:29pm

JOHOR BAHRU 9 Jun — Nelayan-nelayan di Gelang Patah kini tidak lagi dapat menangkap ikan di perairan Pulau Merambong, kawasan yang kaya dengan sumber ikan, berikutan tindakan bot-bot peronda negara jiran menghalang nelayan.

Menurut nelayan itu, walaupun pulau itu terletak dalam sempadan maritim Malaysia, pihak berkuasa negara jiran sering menghalang mereka daripada menangkap ikan di kawasan terbabit terutamanya pada waktu malam.

"Walaupun kita tahu kita berada di dalam perairan Malaysia berdasarkan kedudukan boya penanda sempadan, mereka (bot peronda negara jiran) tetap bertindak menghalau kita dengan alasan berada terlalu dekat dengan sempadan perairan negara mereka,” menurut nelayan di Kampung Pendas Laut, Mohd Rosli Abu, 58, kepada Bernama hari ini.

Anggota bot peronda pengawal negara jiran itu dakwanya, juga pernah beberapa kali merampas kad pengenalannya ketika beliau sedang menangkap ikan berhampiran pulau itu pada waktu malam.

Mohd Rosli berkata, mereka memberi alasan mahu memeriksa sama ada beliau mempunyai rekod jenayah, sebelum memulangkan kembali kad pengenalannya itu.

"Kadang kala ada di antara bot-bot peronda terbabit dipandu laju berhampiran bot kecil saya, sehingga hampir mengakibatkan bot saya terbalik disebabkan ombak,” katanya, dan menambah, ini sebagai usaha untuk menghalaunya.

Pulau Merambong yang tidak berpenghuni itu terletak berhampiran sempadan maritim Malaysia dan Singapura. Ia hanya terletak kira-kira 10 minit perjalanan menggunakan bot dari Tuas, Singapura berbanding 30-45 minit dari Gelang Patah.

Nelayan, Tarmizi Jailani, 46, pula berkata, tindakan agresif bot peronda negara jiran itu mengakibatkan nelayan-nelayan tempatan kini tidak menjadikan kawasan perairan sekitar Pulau Merambong sebagai kawasan tangkapan ikan.

"Apabila masuk sahaja 7 malam, nelayan akan meninggalkan kawasan perairan sekitar Pulau Merambong kerana bimbang akan gangguan dari bot-bot peronda negara jiran,” katanya.

Nelayan-nelayan tempatan menurutnya, mengetahui tentang kedudukan sempadan maritim di antara Malaysia dan Singapura di sekitar Pulau Merambong itu berikutan terdapatnya beberapa tanda sempadan yang didirikan oleh Jabatan Laut.

"Kita sudah bertahun-tahun menangkap ikan di sini, kita tahu di mana perairan Malaysia dan perairan Singapura,” kata Tarmizi.

Sementara itu Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Nusajaya Datuk Abdul Aziz Sapian meminta pihak berkuasa negara ini menjalankan rondaan dengan lebih kerap di perairan Pulau Merambong bagi menangani masalah gangguan bot peronda negara jiran terhadap nelayan tempatan.

"Kita terima banyak laporan dari nelayan-nelayan tempatan tentang gangguan daripada bot peronda negara jiran walaupun mereka (nelayan tempatan) jelas berada di dalam perairan Malaysia,” katanya.

Beliau yang membawa media tempatan melawat Pulau Merambong menggunakan kapal Jabatan Laut Wilayah Selatan hari ini mahukan pulau yang terletak di lokasi strategik di Selat Johor itu dibangunkan.

Menurutnya, Pulau Merambong itu amat strategik kerana ia terletak di tengah-tengah laluan perkapalan yang sibuk untuk ke Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), loji janakuasa Tanjung Bin dan Asia Petroleum Hub serta laluan ke kawasan industri Tuas di Singapura.

Nak jaga periok nasi sendiri, periok rakyat tak dipedulikan !

DSAI berangan angan dia akan memerintah pada ujung bulan September ni, Tak kan kita nak tunggu lagi Tun? Kami rakyat takut lepas mulut buaya. masuk pulak mulut harimau ???!!!

Salam AYAHANDA RAKYAT yang dikasihi,
Sambil menunggu menonton EURO championship. Peminat Netherlands.

Izinkan,
'Mr. Bluemoon said',
The answer to your question, why Ayahanda Tun chose Pak Lah.

As we saw it.

It's been UMNO tradition to choose a successor from the VPs when DSAI was sacked.
1. Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak
2. Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin
3. Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

The most senior and with the most expures in the cabinet and UMNO is Pak Lah. He was amongst the earliest member of UMNO and was the
the Patron of GPMS.
His family background in UMNO's struggles and above all
his Mr. 'Clean and Piety' image.
With due respect to the other two VPs. Although acquiring the top two VP posts, were suspected in exposure and abilities and/or have the character to be No. 2 when compared to Pak Lah. The came the 'lobbyists'.

If he was not the correct choice, the 2004 elections result would have differred.

What subsequent happened which neither the Tun nor the pundits noticed was the Rising Son In Law.
Well, Mr. Bluemoon, if you were the
PM then...?

Lets not cry over spilled milk.
Que sera sera.
Perhaps PRU 13 would be fateful for
Pak Lah and that 'Little Rascal'.

Dear Tun

PM is too dumb to do anything on his own, so there should be many others in co-hoots with him or plan for and with him. In this particular disclosure as well as the other 3 disclosures which you will come forward in good time, I am sure his family (and extended family) interest comes foremost. With the SIL snooping and interfering for his personal vested interest to plunder the country and his son garnering all the lucrative contracts under the name of absolute poor governance, no wonder we are made to pay for everything when all the subsidies are to be removed by the impractical Shahril under the guise of free market practices.

Yes I did hear from my friends in JB that they were truly disappointed by aborted crooked bridge when they saw the potential benefits from it. I was told by many that PM is a very vicious unforgiving person and your story confirms PM hideous character. The pressure on Tan Sri Sanusi Junid to relinquish his post as President of UIAM is another good example. But PM and his family are worse than hideous; in their mischievous and fraudulent endeavors, they are traitors and rot of the Nation and to the Bangsa Melayu and all Malaysians.

HIDUP TUN.

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Malaysia is blessed with your leadership, but sadly now its whitering. Now I'm begining to see why there's a threat of the opposition taking over, why you left UMNO, and it's all becoz of PM Abdullah and his cronies bent on tapping everything the country have, and throwing the crumbs to the rakyat. Though many people are against you, but many more still behind you. You have said "...you can't please everyone..." but I, for one would would trust my life in your hands. I have seen how you've defended our sovereignity, brought quantum leap progress, foresee crisis and prepared us, planned the future of at least one generation ahead, much to the envy and fear of the "kiasu" singapore.

Folks... The crooked bridge was a check on singapore and an assurance to the economic survival of Johore and Malaysia. That was Tun's strategy. Imagine this trade off, by allowing singapore to buy sand for land reclamation, have you all wondered how the geographical landscape would be by then? Of course, it would be to singapore's advantage! Now with Pulau Batu Puteh in theirs, they could stretch their boundaries up to there. Of course, now you can't coz its a pile of rocks, but what if it becomes land...by land reclamation...get it? Nothing is impossible.

Tun could foresee all these and worked out the strategy to protect Malaysia. Whatever he left behind was in good faith the successor completes it. But it looks like the successor is more eager in creating his personal legacy and wealth during his premiership than the welfare of its citizens. Why Tun left it before it is completed, let's not speculate. I'm sure there's a reason thats not privy to us.

What's happening today, especially the shocking petrol and diesal increase, and after reading Tun's article today, is clearly vengence by PM Abdullah on the rakyat for swinging the votes in the general election.

Let me share a comment by a forumer in one of the topics in CARI.com

" nak share skit...

ingat lagi masa Tun bg talk kat Uni10 - Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed Lecture Series
(12 December 2005, he's the 1st speaker for this lecture series hence his name), ramai yg rela park jejauh & jalan kaki ke hall tu to listen to him
(termasuklah sang tiram nih..)

felt so proud to be under the same roof with him, his talk for that day was about leadership, i still remember Tun kata a leader :

- needs great knowledge of things
- has capacity to think
- must be able to calculate & deduce
- must be able to make decision
- needs to have experience
- should be able to recognize the oncoming crisis before it blows
- should be able to deal with the crisis
- must be prepared to face the consequences for every decision he made(and put his head on the chopping block for this too...)

(hmmm... masih ada ke leader yg mcm nih skrg nih? kalao ada pun dah dikira mcm endangered species kot ye?)

yg best sekali bila dia jawab 'definition of a leader'...

Tun kata ada 2 definisi - art or science?

art definition - a leader is like a conductor in an orchestra - just conduct...

science definition - a leader is like a doctor, the leader has to diagnose & treat the 'patient' (crisis or whatever issue that rises) by looking at the history; the signs & symptom; analysis of data and thru experience + knowledge. then he has to decise on the choice of treatment + remedies for the 'patient'

I pray for your good health for years to come, for we need your wisdom to see us through.

May Allah bless you and your family.

wassalam

a'kum tun..
it seems that the current government has lost its motivation and focus in answering the aspiration of the people. whether it is because we are not aware of the true problems that this country is facing or probably it is true that this government has not performed to meet the standards. either way it has left a feeling of insecurity towards the faith of this country and everyone’s future. some say that this government is shadowed by achievements of the previous one, yet it doesn’t matter because the basic concept is to continue the concept of success which it was laid before. after all, most people enjoyed the development that had brought to what we have today. it seems that this government wants to create its own pax malaysiana, but the people of this country is still not in the mood for such a drastic changes in ideas and concepts which in the end left this country in a mess..

I never bother about politics in our country before, but it seems like our 'tanah tumpah darah' is soon becoming a nightmare.

It scares me to death thinking of what's next...sigh******
Can we live peacefully without thinking of the next blunders by incompetent politicians?..

To Loh:

Let me see. TDM inspired Proton, KLIA, KLCC, and so much more. Based on historical achievements, I bet his idea on the bridge would have worked. But now I guess we won't really know will we.

Pak Lah on the other hand? What has he done?

Seriously, I'd be damned if I let any land in Malaysia be sold to Singapore. No mountains, sand, or any piece of land that we have should be sold to them. Or any other country to be in fact.

Dear TDM

Inilah Pak Lah kepimpinan yg langsung tak berwawasan dan boleh dikatakan kurang cerdik rata-rata rakyat Malaysia mengutuk segala dasar yg dibuat oleh beliau, keseluruhannya tak mendatangkan hasil kepada rakyat dan negara. Yg untung hanya (Aku, isteri aku dan menantu aku). Saya secara peribadi mendesak agar dia (Pak Lah) Step Down demi menyelamat bangsa dan negara. Kalau dulu dia kata islam Hadhari sekarang langsung tak dengar dia menyebut pasal tu. Agaknya sibuk dengan menantu. Sekian TDM. Sama-sama kita berjuang.

jimizul said...

Assalamualaikum Tun,
Teruskan usaha Tun untuk membongkar segala kepincangan kepimpinan Pak Lah, lebih-lebih lagi kebodohan beliau. Kami sebagai rakyat Malaysia berasa amat malu mempunyai seorang PM seperti beliau. Saya rasa tiada apa yang boleh kami banggakan dengan beliau dan terus-terang saya katakan beliau adalah seorang 'sell-out' dan secara langsung seorang pembelot bangsa Melayu. Kepada anak cucu saya kelak akan saya khabarkan nama beliau...this i guarantee him. Saya berikan nama baru cogankata kepimpinan beliau- Lemah, Lembik dan Lesu.

Bila dicadangkan elaun, claim & keistimewaan ahli kabinet ini dipotong atau dimansuhkan, ada yang menjawab bahawa cadangan ini tidak rasional. Cadangan ini dibangkitkan supaya pemimpin merasai bersama keperitan yang ditanggung rakyat, bukannya berapa jumlah wang terkumpul hasil potongan atau pemansuhan tersebut.

Ia bukan hanya kepada ahli kabinet saja tetapi melibat exco kerajaan Negeri,Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri dan Parlimen kerana mereka dibayar dengan duit rakyat .Maka mereka patut bersama-sama rakyat merasai keadaan sebenarnya,kebanyakaan mereka adakah golongan usahawan dan berkedudukan tinggi yang mempunyai kewangan yang besar,itu sebab mereka berani masuk bertanding dalam pilihanraya kerana kos yang tinggi seperti poster2,cenderamata dan sebagainya.

Adakah mereka semua berani mengumumkan tentang kekayaan mereka kepada rakyat dengan telus melalui media atau poster macam mereka lekat pada pokok,tiang2 lampu dan sebagainya.

Sayang TUN

Tun the proposed bridge looks beautiful and I believe it is pleasant to travel on.
It is brilliant, creative and advanced idea.
The state govt of Johor should undertake and proceed with the project.
APA NAK TUNGGU TUNGGU LAGI BRO TAK DA BO KA AH.

izzkee said...

YES! FINALLY WE KNOW THE REAL STORY BEHIND THIS BRIDGE TO SINGAPORE ISSUE.IF ONLY YOU PROCEEDED WITH THAT PROJECT BEFORE RETIRING....IT WOULD DEFINITELY BE OF EVERYONES ADVANTAGE AND YOU COULD SEE HOW MUCH WE ALL RAKYAT WOULD APPRECIATE AND USE THAT BRIDGE EVERY DAY....AND EVEN THAT SO CALLED "hadhari group of leaders" WOULD DEFINITELY USE IT TOO.

ANYWAY TUN, WHAT WE SHOULD THINK NOW IS HOW TO MAKE PAK LAH REALISE THAT RAKYAT DO NOT WANT HIM ANYMORE.

CAN I SUGGEST THAT YOU ORGANISE A PEACEFUL GATHERING TO SHOW PAK LAH HOW MANY SUPPORTERS YOU HAVE AND OUR MAIN PURPOSE FOR THAT IS ONLY ONE : MAKE HIM COME DOWN AND TAKE AWAY WITH HIM ALL HIS CRONIES TOGETHER TO HIS OWN WORLD OF SLEEPING BEAUTIES...

BUT WHAT NEXT?? WHO IS CAPABLE TO BE OUR NEXT PM?

NAJIB? Too much women scandals

ANWAR? He has too much personal
agendas and corrupted.

MUHYIDIN? Not calibre enough

RAZALEIGH? No clear vision for
rakyat to rely.



WELL...I REALLY HOPE TUN CAN COME BACK AND THIS TIME ..PLEASE BE READY TO HAND OVER THE PM POST TO A RELIABLE PERSON ...OR TRAIN MUKHRIZ TO BE LIKE YOU...CAN YOU TUN??


TO ALL chedet's FANS.....KEEP UP YOUR INTELLIGENT COMMENTS AND LETS PRAY FOR A BETTER FUTURE BEING MALAYSIANS!!!!

STAY HEALTHY TUN... MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALWAYS.

walau apa-apa pun bagi kami yang tidak pernah keluar negeri kerana kewangan yang kecil.Jambatan Bengkok tidak perlu dimana lebih baik fikir macamana nak batal perjanjian air yang merugikan dan bagaimana mengelakkan banyak lagi pulau-pulau diberi kepada negara luar.Kita terlalu baik sehingga orang jijak kepala.

Penyelewangan berlaku sejak dahulu lagi semasa zaman Tun tetapi masa itu IT belum berkembang lagi,maka tiada yang mengetahui seperti Blog ini kerana keduniaan dan hawa nafsu.Sekarang ramai sudah tahu apa itu IT ,ini menyebabkan banyak surat-surat yang dulu dirahsia sudah terdedah kerana pegawai-pegawai awam sekarng mudah dibeli.

Kerana duit semua boleh buat,tutup mulut buka mulut dan macam-macam lagi.Siapa mahu susah beb dan tengok keluarga minta sedekah.

Mr Din said...

Assalammualaikum Tun & para pembaca
Saya dibesarkan di Johor selama lebih 15 tahun.Saya menganggap diri saya sebagai rakyat Johor walaupun saya kini menetap dan bekerja di KL.Ketika saya bekerja sebagai Forwarding Agent di Johor dulu saya lihat ketegasan kerajaan Singapura mengatasi sikap tolak ansur kerajaan Malaysia.Apa yang saya kesalkan ialah kita seolah-olah mengikut telunjuk jari Singapura.Pada pandangan saya,bukan sekadar isu jambatan sahaja yang harus dipertikaikan.Beberapa perkara juga amat perlu kita ketahui dan pertahankan.Mungkin ada yang telah lupa tentang isu air yang dibekalkan kepada Singapura.Sebagai rakyat Johor saya tidak akan pernah mengenepikan isu ini.Secara logiknya,kenapa kita dikenakan bayaran air yang mahal sedangkan air yang dijual kepada Singapura jauh lebih murah?Dan air yang dijual ini pula dijual kembali kepada rakyat Malaysia dengan harga yang berlipat kali ganda.Ini buka situasi 'win-win'.Disini sahaja Malaysia telah kerugian jutaan ringgit.Saya berpendapat,jika Pak Lah ingin menjual pasir untuk mengaut keuntungan,bukankah lebih bagus jika kita naikkan kadar harga air yang dijual kepada Singapura?

Ayozz said...

Nenda Tun,

Harap Tun dapat kembalikan format paparan penulisan Tun seperti sebelum ini. Sebelumnya Tun banyak menulis dalam bentuk point (bullet) dan berperenggan (paragraphs).

Buah fikiran Tun sememangnya terlalu berharga. Saya akan tetap baca no matter how it is presented.

HAJIMAN IBRAHIM said...

Ybgh Tun,
Buruknya sikap Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, tindakan yang melampau dan keterlaluan. Namun jelas lah melayu begitu mudah diperdayakan.

Apa pendapat Tun.......... di Cheras kerana ianya melibatkan kerugian segolongan penguna, tindakan tunjuk perasaan dilayan kerajaan pusat dengan menghapuskan tol (sementara katanya), tapi tindakan PM membatalkan projek jambatan, dan kemungkinan projek itu merugikan golongan sebangsanya , tindakan itu tidak mendapat bantahan dari mereka.....

Apa yang patut Tun laksanakan ialah mengariskan juga apa tindakan yang patut rakyat buat ekoran tindakan PM itu.


Doa saya untuk Tun terus bahagia.

kemek said...

Salam bahagia Tun,

Bila saja Tun ungkitkan isu 'jambatan bengkok ke singapura' ni buat hati saya jadi tak menentu. MARAH, BENCI, MENYAMPAH, DENDAM dan akhirnya saya rasa sedih tak terkata..

Saya adalah bekas Kakitangan Pejabat Suruhan Jaya Tinggi Malaysia Di Singapura yang telah diBERHENTIkan tanpa alasan-alasan atau bukti-bukti yang nyata. Saya dibuang tanpa mengikut prosuder yang ditetapkan. saya tidak dipanggil atau diberi peluang untuk membela diri.Oleh kerana inilah sampai sekarang saya masih tidak mendapat sebarang pekerjaan lagi. Tiada siapa yang mahu mengambil saya bekerja kerana 'sejarah' dibuang kerja ini. Rumah tangga saya jadi porak peranda. Tak lama lagi nama saya akan di'senaraihitam'kan dek kerana tak mampu melunaskan hutang-hutang yang sedia ada.

Sedihnya saya sekeluarga hanya tuhan je yang tahu.. kalau lah negara ini tiada undang-undang, tak tahu lah apa yang akan saya lakukan...saya dah tak percaya kepada pemerintah.. saya dah benci!! BEEENNNCCCCCCCCCCCCCIIIIIIIII...!!!

Kepada para pegawai yang berada disana, atau segelintir yang menjadi sebabnya saya dibuang, DENGAN NAMA ALLAH, sampai mati saya takkan maafkan kamu semua.

Thanks for highlighting these facts to us Tun. I hope that you will continue to tell us about the corruption of this current government as well as those ministers who are still in power now and during your time.
And if you don't mind Tun, would you tell us how you lost power. Me and i'm sure the public would like to know the inside struggles and the truth behind your resignation. There are too many speculations and i'm sure coming from you will certainly quell all those negativity about you. More importantly if you would tell how you would react differently if you had known the situation now. This way it would be a lesson for all of us. Thanks.

Sokong Tun..Pak Lah bazir duit rakyat bina Masjid Kristal yang tak boleh digunakan untuk sembahyang Jumaat. Dulu saya pernah juga mengkritik Tun kerana buat projek mega seperti KLIA yang jauh dari pusat bandar, Putrajaya, Masjid Putrajaya dan lain-lain. Tapi sekarang saya dah nampak ia beri manfaat kepada rakyat dan dapat digunakan sebaiknya. Sebagai seorang arkitek yang pernah belajar di Johor saya lihat jambatan bengkok ni memang benar-benar dapat mendatangkan income kepada Malaysia apabila kapal-kapal dapat melalui Selat Tebrau dan berlabuh di Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas dan tidak perlu lalui Singapura.. yang Pak Lah pulak batalkan projek tu pas tu sibuk nak buat Masjid Kristal dan koridor sana-sini ( yang kemudiannya menguntungkan rakyat asing.

Salam YABhg Tun,

Jika Tun dianggap bersalah oleh "Loh" kerana membazir wang membina jambatan bengkok, Pak Lah yang lembab sepuluh kali lebih salah kerana membatalkan projek tersebut.

Lebih teruk lagi kerana membazirkan wang untuk membayar pampasan yang bukan sedikit jumlahnya.

Pak & Loh sama bodoh, tak dak vision.Tak tahu beza antara jet singapura yang ada juruterbang dengan asap kebakaran yang boleh terbang kemana-mana sahaja tanpa dapat dikawal.

Harap-harap ada satu lagi suruhanjaya yang ditubuhkan untuk menyiasat kebod--- dan keraku--- Pak Lah & family.

Salam Tun,

Jambatan bengkok adalah serampang banyak mata(bukan setakat dua tiga mata).

Saya dapat lihat bagaimana jambatan ini kalau dibina dapat membantu rakyat Johor, kemudian pembangunan berperingkat dari johor melalui lebuhraya pantai timur membangunkan Pahang, kemudiannya Terengganu dan akhir sekali Kerajaan BN dapat menakluki Kelantan.

Itu belum lagi kesan terhadap ekonomi Singapura, kesan keselamatan negara di Selat Tebrau, kesan terhadap Pelabuhan-pelabuhan negara, kesan terhadap sektor ekonomi, kesan kepada keselamatan dan keberkesanan kastam dan imergresen di pintu masuk negara dan banyak lagi.....

JAMBATAN BENGKOK PERLU DILAKSANA!!!!

YAB Tun,

Even though you are no longer the PM, you still earned the right to be called YAB!

Dari hari pertama Tun menjadi PM hingga bersara, pandangan Tun terhadap Singapura adalah konsisten dan Jambatan Bengkok ini adalah kemuncaknya.

Dari pengamatan saya, pandangan Tun terhadap pentingnya projek ini diteruskan adalah amat jauh dari segi keuntungan kepada Negara, khususnya negeri Johor dan rakyatnya.

Kepentingan strategik projek ini ialah untuk membolehkan kapal-kapal dagangan melalui Selat Teberau yang mana sekarang ini dihalang oleh Tambak Johor. "Clearance" ketinggian jambatan dan kedalaman adalah penting untuk membolehkan jenis-jenis kapal melalui Selat tersebut.

Dengan meningkatnya trafik kapal-kapal maka aktiviti di Pelabuhan Pasir Gudang dan PTP akan bertambah.

Singapura sudah nampak akan kesan dan impak yang akan dihadapinya sekira projek ini dilaksanakan oleh Malaysia dan sudah tentu ini tidak akan menguntungkan Singapura.

Jelas sekali maruah negara telah dikompromi hanya untuk keuntungan penjualan pasir dan 'pencerobohan sah' jet-jet RSAF ke ruang angkasa berdaulat Malaysia.

Walaupun Indonesia agak kurang darisegi pendapatannya berbanding Malaysia, namun kerana maruah, pemerintah Indonesia telah melarang penjualan pasir kepada Singapura.

Di Malaysia sebaliknya, kerajaan dengan lantang menentang aktiviti pengorekan pasir serta permit extrak pasir yang dikeluarkan kerana ianya merosakkan tebing-tebing sungai dan bukit.

Kerajaan juga memprotes kerja-kerja penambakan oleh Singapura yang semakin hampir kepada sempadan Malaysia. Hakikatnya terbalik, pasir dijual kepada Singapura !!

Terima kasih kepada Tun kerana berpandangan jauh dan mengambil berat nasib negara kita serta generasi akan datang.

Please make a comeback, we will support you all the way. Semoga Allah memberkati dan panjangkan umur Tun!

Salam Tun. Your bold decisive action in the 97 Asian economic crisis saved many of us traders and merchants. Big or small and me included. Your retirement may now be proven as premature. You must make a comeback and save us all. You put us on this path of grand success, now don’t stand by it and see it all to waste by incompetent others. You must make a comeback and put the house in proper order again. You could have easily leaded us to remain farmers, never knowing the pride of progress and development. But you did not. You pushed, you kicked and you whipped us all into accomplishment and advancement. Now you must save all this from destructions. Many await your active re-entry again to save the day. You owe us that! -Kamal Ahmad Yahya.

Assalamualaikum Tun :)

I learn this from a South Korean romance comedy مش الله.

Zhuge Liang's Chu Shi Biao

Zhuge Liang first addressed the dangerous situation of Shu Han. He warned Emperor Liu Shan that the work of the previous Emperor, Liu Bei, was not finished. Although Liu Bei had successfully built a new kingdom, Shu Han was still the weakest out of the Three Kingdoms. If dire measures were not taken, Shu Han could very well fall into destruction and elimination as an entity.

He advised Emperor Liu Shan:
[1] transparency and willingness to accept criticism, fair judgment & avoid petty and corrupt officials
[2] control his speech and dignity, and to listen for new ideas so that the works of Liu Bei would not be lost
[3] good judiciary, calling for Liu Shan to treat every officials the same way and avoid favorism
[4] to look for wise officials and put his trust in them

The Chu Shi Biao ended with Zhuge Liang's expression of his loyalty and emotions. مش الله

..................

Even their romantic comedy expands my mind. Their wikipedia page is filled with accomplishments. I think that's what we Malaysians need to do to be respected internationally. Avoid pettiness, strategize, accomplish.

Seol is known as the "Miracle on the Han River" - from a hopeless destroyed post-war Seoul to today's global economic powerhouse. I can't help but respet them. I wish Malaysia is as such. :)

Tun,...

Apa nak banyak bising-bising ni... Kenapa nak buang masa untuk protes dengan menulis dalam blog? I have an idea for you "as an brilliant options". You may choose to go back into UMNO and contest in the coming December elections for the Presiden post (where majority of the MT members will accept you back). Secondly, you may create a new party.. habis cerita. You know you could do that. Please show me and all rakyat Malaysia about your genuine commitment/good intention. We are always here, waiting for you to take a drastic action in order to save this loving, gracious and peaceful country. How long can you be patient with this disaster?.

Assalamualaikum Tun, Saya ialah anak jati Johor,yang menghairankan saya ialah kenyataan Pak Lah bahawa rakyat Johor menolak jambatan baru ini.Tiada bancian yang dijalankan bagi rakyat Johor sama ada kami bersetuju atau tidak dengan jambatan baru ini.Apa yang saya tahu "majorati lebih 2/3" rakyat Johor amat bersetuju dengan jambatan baru yang unik ini.

xfiajAssalamualaikum Tun,

Inilah orang kata, TIDAK BERSYUKUR. Tun sudah berikan kepercayaan pada awal penyerahan kuasa. Tetapi ia disalah gunakan utk kepentingan KELUARAGA (MENANTU). Terlalu nyata, pada awalnya pengambil alihan avenue securities oleh LIBRA. TERLALU KETARA! Bagaimana syarikat kecil ini boleh mengambil alih syarikat besar.

Dan, emak saya adalah salah seorang PEKERJA avenue securities yg diberi "DIBAYAR SUPAYA BERHENTI" disebabkan pekerja semakin ramai.

Adilkah?

Habis sepah madu dibuang!

Sedikit sebanyak pergolakan ekonomi tampak dilihat!

Kononnya index bskl melambung sampai RIBU! Tetapi, masih sama! bagaimanakah? Kononya ekonomi sudah pulih, tetapi sebenarnya ia menurun tanpa disedari!

Pekerja kerajaan DINAIKKAN gaji, BARANG PUN NAIK!.

Kami swasta?

Makan asap!

KONONNYA MAHU KELUARKAN "BACKUP PLAN" tetapi! semua kedai sudah naik sepuluh sen, naik 30 sen. Semua mahu naik!

Kami?

Naik ANGIN!

Dear Tun,
Government projects which received the mandate of the people and approved by the cabinet should receive its due right to be implemented despite change of leadership. Discontinuation of projects have proved to incur great loss to public funds and does not benefit the people. Malaysians who are taxpayers have the right to know the usage of public funds by the government and hold the government responsible for the appropriate use of public funds. May we enlighten ourselves with the following verses from the Quran:
“O ye that believe! betray not the trust of Allah and the Messenger, nor misappropriate knowingly things entrusted to you” (Surah An-Anfal, verse 27).
“That they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men's substance wrongfully; We have prepared for those among them who reject Faith a grievous punishment” Surah AN-nisaa, verse 161.
