Tun Dr Mahathir is like a specialist who believes ever illness relates to his or her profession. When they see someone who has a pain in the finger they proclaim that that it is psychosomatic (all in the mind) if they are a psychiatrist. The internist wants to explore and treat one of the organs as they perceive that as the primary cause of the finger pain. Heart specialist may want to open up the patient to see why blood is not pumping properly to the finger. Each specialist will try to frame the pain the finger in a manner which relates to what they do.
With Tun Dr Mahathir it is the same way. Everything that is happening in the Malaysia has something to do with the 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). Tun Dr Mahathir realizes that if has any chance of getting his son Mukhriz any shot at become relevant, he (Tun Dr Mahathir) has to get Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to step down. The only way Tun Dr Mahathir can try to get Prime Minister Najib Razak to step down is to continually try to tie any and everything that he believes is wrong financially to 1MDB and then concoct ways to connect the Prime Minister to any perceived misappropriation.
Over the last two (2) years the Tun Mahathir and probed various means to get Prime Minister Najib Razak to resign. He believes that if he (Tun Dr Mahathir) as any chance of bringing about his agenda before GE14 1MDB he has to put all his eggs in the 1MDB and hope for the best. He does not have the luxury of time to create a new scenario to work with in which to implicate the Prime Minister so it is 1MDB come hell or high water.
Tun Dr Mahathir is myopic on getting Prime Minister Najib to step down from office that has resorted to working with his political (DAP, PKR) enemies. And it was only a few month ago that he suggested (subtle plea) that Western governments should intervene in Malaysia’s internal affairs. In other words get the Western powers to bring about or tacitly sanction a coup d’état in Malaysia. The very man who once railed against the West sought their help to force Malaysia’s democratic leader to step down.
Now Tun Dr Mahathir wants Malaysians to believe that since there is a lawsuit linked to 1MDB in the US then that is somehow proof that the Prime Minister is tried and convicted in the US courts.
It is ironic how Tun Dr Mahathir condemns and or hails the West when it suits his purpose. Conveniently loss on Tun Dr Mahathir is the fact that that Prime Minister Najib Razak is not implicated in the suit. In fact, Prime Minister Najib Razak says that the Malaysian government will cooperate with the investigation.
Of course Tun Mahathir does not want the Malaysia’s government to cooperate in the investigation for fear that Prime Minister Najib Razak will once again be exonerated of any crime in the same way the PAC cleared him.
Tun Dr Mahathir knows that the Prime Minister’s name will be cleared so he is trying to once again get the public to have a referendum on the Prime Minister; as if the last three (3) elections were not enough.
It is amusing how Tun Dr Mahathir is so quick at every opportunity to say that the Prime Minister should step down, but has not called for the present Penang Menteri Besar Lim Guan Eng to step down given the paper trail of proof that there are some irregularities over the below market price property he has purchased.
Tun Dr Mahathir will not openly say Lim Guan Eng should step down the same way he will not openly save that they US lawsuit does not implicate Prime Minister Razak.
The former Malaysia leader still has not awakened to the fact that people are innocent until proven otherwise.
It seems that Dr Mahathir believes he is a specialist on 1MDB and judge and jury when it comes to Prime Minister Najib Razak.
