Has Dr Mahathir Finally Flipped His Lid?

We know that with advancing age, many people do experience intellectual shortcomings. More often than not we tend to expect and accept these deficiencies as part of the process of life and sympathize with those afflicted with this malady. However if the aging person happens to be a one time world leader who suddenly makes silly pronouncements and downright ridiculous claims, we have to perforce sit up and take notice.

And if that person happens to be Tun Dr Mahathir who reportedly has claimed that the 9/11 attacks in the United States, that killed nearly 3,000, was staged as an excuse to “mount attacks on the Muslim world” we have to seriously consider if the man has taken leave of his senses. The rubbish which he is mouthing is the conspiracy stuff that you'll read on a nutcase's blog in Pakistan or some middle eastern country.

Consider his logic in this statement - “In September 2001, the World Trade Centre was attacked allegedly by terrorists. I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything”!!

As if to provide more fodder for others to question his sanity he also states that the creation of the Jewish state was decided after Europeans failed to massacre the community.

Whether these are the words of a madhatter or if it is another deviously planned statement designed for considerable impact on the local population for some political gain remains to be seen.

Perhaps he is making all these silly motions to divert attention from issues that are troubling to the nation as well as to him.

His "retirement" has seen him being vocal opposition to his own hand picked successor and many issues are coming back to haunt him. He also can't let Anwar Ibrahim roam freely. His actions imply a vindictive streak in him - he is after all, a very shrewd politician. You have to hand Tun Dr M that.

But this comment on 9/11 is right on the edge of sanity.
