Oh the old man Mahathir.... The guy should kick the bucket already. Good for nothing troublemaker. He has been removed from power yet he wants to somehow claw back to power at 95 years of age.Former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has said that Singapore was once owned by Johor and the state of Johor should claim that Singapore be returned to it and to Malaysia.
Militarily Singapore is way too powerful than Malaysia but lacks strategic depth..... If Malaysia attacks with full determination it's highly possible for large Malaysia to occupy it
Bloody what? Mahathir himself is of Indian descent and he is talking about Bumiputras as if the current racists policies isn't enough.
You may not believe that Singapore has depth, because China and USA are both Singapore's depth.Militarily Singapore is way too powerful than Malaysia but lacks strategic depth..... If Malaysia attacks with full determination it's highly possible for large Malaysia to occupy it
It is Malaysia who throw Singapore out from the Malaysia federation. The reason is because during that time the population between Malay and Chinese ethnics are balance in the federation, so to get majority Malay should throw Singapore out from federation.
The reason of why Malaysia is won in Sipadan and Ligitan case is because Soeharto wants the dispute solved peacefully and therefore he is agree to bring the case to international court. The reason of the win is because :
1. Those two tiny islands have already been occupied by Malaysian citizens who live there.
2. Many of the judges are British that favor Malaysia, while Japanese judges who are minority choose Indonesia.
That Strait Time reporter (and editor who approve the news) are not good in absorbing the statement by Mahathir, Mahathir means Singapore should be Malay land just like Riau islands (Sipadan and Ligitan case).
Any way, Riau islands are indeed Malay land as those living in that islands are Malay ethnic from Indonesia.
