Ex-Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed said in a speech recently:
"...(the) MIGs are given, are sold to us without any condition, if you feel like bombing Singapore, for example, the Russians are not going to object.
Any Singaporeans here? Or ex-Singaporeans?"
Dr M continues in the later part of the speech:
...but this great aircraft called F-18, which we bought from America, after buying it, after several months, I got to know that this aircraft cannot be used for any attacks against any country, even if this is not Singapore.
Upon watching this video clip on Youtube, a Malaysian friend of ours said, "Every country has its Bush."
