On 1st January 2011, Dr. Mahathir wrote an article about The Futility of War, a profound post which ended with these ominous words "When will the great powers learn that their overwhelming military power will avail them of nothing in this modern age, When will they realise that war, the killing of innocent people is futile".
Apparently the rabid anti BN "journo" Wong Choon Mei wrote an article "Dr M slams U.S. oppression but quiet about his home country" in the Malaysia Chronicle which is a rabidly anti BN website as well.
Wong Choon Mei got a mouthful in Hantu Laut's latest post here:

Wong Choon Mei:Don't Try To Teach Your Grandma How To Suck Eggs
by Hantu Laut
Journalism...my foot! More like a frustrated reporter in a drunken stupor and a wannabe "fifth columnist".
It is alright for America to carry out mass murders around the world
Written by Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle.
In his first blog posting for 2011, former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad speaks of the futility of using force, that "overwhelming military power" is nothing in "this modern age". Sadly, he was advising U.S. President Barack Obama on Afghanistan and not himself or his off-on protege, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.
Are the twisting of the courts to secure advantageous outcomes, the imprisonment of dissidents without fair trial, the arbitrary banning of books and cartoons, the wrongful use of government machinery to coerce electoral victories any less oppressive than guns and bloodshed?
Is a slow death less painful than a quick one?
The phrase Charity begins at home is not without its special wisdom, neither is Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Perhaps Dr Mahathir should help right the wrongs at home before casting his eyes overseas.
The methods and philosophies he promulgates in his home country should echo his stand for the rest of the world.
Can I ask this lady how many people have been murdered by Mahathir or any of the BN leaders after him? Have there been any mass political persecution in this country and how many political prisoners are rotting away in prison?
How come the whole of Pakatan Rakyat leaders were not in prison, they are considered political dissidents?
How come Uncle Lim, the barking dog of Pakatan Rakyat who spewed daily dosage of political excrement on the Malaysian public hoping they get the mange and he gets to be the DPM when Lord Vader took over this kingdom is still shouting at the top of his accented voice insulting the regime in every possible way but is still as free as the bird.
How come the Tiger of Jelutong, the man who think he was godsend to save Malaysia from the evil regime is still wallowing in self abandonment appearing in our court regularly to defend Lord Vader from being branded a sodomite.
Should racist troublemaker like you who goes around writing lies about other people be allowed to roam free and spread your venom among the people and yet swear there is no freedom of expression in this country.
There certainly is much freedom of expression in the U.S. Ask Julian Assange and he will tell you how much he loves America.Ask the boys in Guantanamo, they, the prisoners of war branded as terrorists, how they enjoy and love American torturers tickling their dicks and arses to force information out of them. That seemed to be alright by you.As long as they are not of your kin and creed why care.
Mahathir, has every right to write about Obama, a cheat and a liar, who fooled the American nation and the whole world with his oratory skill and good voice but now turned out to be a phoney!..... and we got exactly one of the same at home.
Wong Choon Mei, since you love America so much and think that the U.S and Obama was right in killing hundred of thousands of innocent Iraqi and Afghan civilians and you don't care because they are not of your kin and creed, maybe, you should apply to join the U.S Military and help them kill more Iraqis and Afghans or make war with Malaysia so you can also kill Malaysian that you hate.
Wasn't she the one who wrote lies about Najib back in 2008 and has to resign from Malaysiakini?
Read the article below taken from a blog "Dandelions" published in 2008 after the "big lie" she made and this blog owner literally showered her praiseworthy saliva on her.
What are the core values of professional journalism?
Objectivity, Accuracy, Corroboration and Avoiding Conflicts of Interest, Transparency, Editorial Oversite…….being the main few among others……basically code of conduct drawn up to saveguard the integrity of this profession. And if one were to fail to uphold any of these values, it is usually up to the good conscience of the person to own up and take full responsibility, even if it means losing one’s job. (The other way would of course to be “goreng-sotong”ed)
Well today, Malaysiakini and its journalist Wong Choon Mei have proven that there is indeed integrity in them and for that, they’ve earned my respect.
If she didn't resign Steven Gan would have sacked her or face the ugly choice of Malaysiakini being taken to the cleaners.
Objectivity, Accuracy, Corroboration and Avoiding Conflicts of Interest, Transparency.
Avoid conflicts of interest ?.......that must be a joke!
If you consistently write against the government and never against the oppositions....is that journalism?
Choon Mei should not teach anyone who knows a lot more than she does especially Dr Mahathir who was busy nation building while she is still in kindergarten.
