"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Up to 10 million people around the world marched in protest of a war against Iraq today.

Meanwhile, in Singapore, 6 people protested in front of the American Embassy in Napier Road but were stopped by the police before they could even wave their placards, and taken to Tanglin Police Station for questioning.

Evidently they had no permit. Maybe they'll be charged for Unlawful Assembly. Whee.

'I feel embarrassed that while people around the world are making a statement about peace, Singaporeans are sitting back and munching peanuts in front of their TV sets.' - Mr Latiff, an Engineer, 33

Maybe it's because protests (without a permit, of course) are illegal here, no?


The whole thing about the war on Saddam is that while it is good in principle, realpolitik butts in (as always), to complicate matters.

I think most people would agree that Saddam is bad. Most Iraqis hate him, and definitely all Kurds. Hell, even his fellow Arabs dislike him. Maybe only Osama gives him moral support (thus providing solid 'evidence' of a link between Saddam and Al-Qaeda).

Saddam is evil. He's the bully of Baghdad. - Yortsin.

But then, where do you draw the line? Let's invade Ma-laysia because PAS will one day invade Singapore! Oh gee.

This issue has been discussed endless to death. Isn't everyone sick and tired of hearing the same old points dragged out again and again? Neither faction is going to convince the other side, now that both sides have become so polarised.
