Mahathir unworthy of being a statesman?



It was John Maynard Keynes who said "When the facts change, I change my view". The philosophy served him well.
Keynes could see ahead of time. When France punished Germany with a heavy penalty after World War I, Keynes knew that Germany would rise again to seek its revenge.
True enough, within a short generation of 20 years after the conclusion of the Versailles Treaty in 1919, Nazi was led by Hitler, wrecking damage on the whole of Europe.
Did Keynes insist on more revenge against Germany? No. True to form when the facts change, he changed his opinion.
After Second World War, Keynes was among the few to insist that Germany has to be integrated into Europe to keep the whole region safe.
Statesmanship is about peering into the future. Under Dr Mahathir Mohamad, well before Malaysia knew what was Vision 2020, he had spoken at the Malaysian Business Council in 1990 on the importance of creating a country that was morally and economically strong.
In contrast, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has run the ship aground with allegedly the brazen RM44 billion mismanagement, which the likes of Khairul Azwan, the Umno Youth vice-chief, is still in denial. It is as if 1MDB is "Pi Mai Pi Mai Tang Tu" (Come and go, come and go, and it’s OK too).
Well, too bad for Najib. Mahathir did not earn his "Tunship" by sheer ingratiation. If he did, the award would have been withdrawn given the government's accusations that he has sold the country down the river with a wave and a bye.
Between 1981 and 2002, a full 22 years, Malaysia was the only one to have grown by leaps and bounds. Even at the height of the Asian financial crisis in 1999, Malaysia never so much as ask for a single dollar from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Yet, had IMF come into the picture, the bumiputera economic program, right down to how the government payroll would be spent, would come under the scrutiny of IMF.
Almost overnight, the sovereignty and independence of Malaysia were saved, which is more than any Malaysians can ask for from their leader.
In contrast, at the height of the Global Economic Recession in 2009, what Najib did was well-nigh irresponsible. Instead of building our country's human capital, allegedly some RM44 billion or more, were borrowed and squandered, saddling Malaysia with even more debt.
Khairul Azwan (photo), being a junior politician, some believe juvenile too, can only claim that Mahathir is not worthy of the title of being called a statesman. If not Mahathir, then who?
'Upset Mahathir can support Anwar again'
Khairul Azwan is upset that Mahathir can support Anwar Ibrahim again. Well, when the facts change, Mahathir's opinion too.
And the facts that have changed are these: Najib has allegedly mismanaged the funds that were leveraged on the name of 1MDB, and avoided coming head to head with Mahathir for a public debate. If there is nothing to hide, Najib must debate with Mahathir.
In avoiding the need to face Mahathir head on, the likes of Khairul Azwan have had to step to the fore to defend the prime minister.
But how can Khairul Azwan even suit the role granted that most Malaysian had never heard of his name until today.
Is he crying out to attract attention? Like he did when he lodged a police report against three impeccable "Tan Sris" that include Zeti Akhtar Aziz, Abdul Gani Patail Abu Kassim Mohamed for attention.
And attention he got when he was instantaneously rewarded with a senatorship by Najib.
Is he now crying for attention so that he will be given a parliamentary or state seats to contest?
Is he eyeing a ministerial position or who knows, the coveted menteri besar post of Perak? Khairul Azwan knows loyalty to Najib has instant rewards or remuneration.

He had experienced it first-hand. Time to accentuate his loyalty to Najib for instant rewards while negating the interest of the people or the nation?
