Of Senile Dementia

In what has to be my favourite story of 2010 so far, Dr Mahathir Mohamad has claimed that 9/11 could very well be staged so that attacks could be carried out on the Muslim world(wow even as i’m typing this i’m smiling).

Dr Mahathir also claims that ““If they(United States) can make Avatar, they can make anything”.

Fact #1 – Avatar was made with New Zealand film technology.

Fact #2 – James Cameron is Canadian.

Fact #3 – Sam Worthington(male lead in the movie) is Australian.

Besides Sigourney and “Uhura”, none of the American actors in the film really made much of an impact. I know you enjoyed the movie. I also know you enjoyed Sam Worthington’s brilliant American accent. But seriously. Google searches are only censored in China. Go forth and Google.

Besides that, Dr Mahathir also criticised President Barack Obama for failing to keep his promises regarding pulling out of Afghanistan and closing down Guantanamo Bay. I leave you with a quote from an acquaintance, Lush 99.5 presenter Elias, that should explain my sentiments perfectly.

okay guys-on-the-right. obama isn’t the black jesus we all hoped for, but who else do you have in mind? bill o’reilly? sarah palin? RUSH LIMBAUGH? HAHA sit down.”

Alzheimer’s victims typically being showing symptoms after the age of 60. That should explain the government patronage, the ethnic discrimination, the Anwar saga, the 9/11 contradictions(he offered full support but raged at being searched at a US airport)… The list goes on.

Very nice Dr M. At age 84, you’ve finally made a big enough fool of yourself to be remembered for eternity. Félicitations!

  1. There are quite a few americans who also believe that it was indeed ‘staged’. They have also sought to support this assumption with evidence – which does, at times, gives cause for a bewildered pause. Many Brits, before the attack on Afghanistan and Iraq, had also argued that this provided the Americans the excuse to do what they did for the purpose of securing oil pipelines, etc. Of course you could just discount all of the above with the ‘dementia’ allegation if you choose. But that wouldn’t be a rational thing to do.

    You shouldn’t just believe everything the mainstream media tells you mate. You show enough scepticism when it comes to the pronouncements of the government in SG, so perhaps you ought to wonder beyond official statements when it comes to global affairs as well.

  2. Of course ed. I’ve seen the documentaries many times over. I too have my doubts.

    I’m not saying that Mahathir is wrong. I have, myself, debated this with several people, often alongside conspiracy theorists. My objections are purely directed at the analogies and examples he employed while issuing his statement. If he genuinely believes what he believes, he should have done his research before comparing staging 9/11 to creating Avatar. Now he has lost all credibility(at least in my eyes).
