Why the prosecution of Anwar Ibrahim matters to the West?
In order for the western hemisphere to survive the proverbial winter, which is getting harsher and harsher every year, fossil fuel has to be gathered and stored in safe places. Where do they gathered the fuel from? Well, we have Nigeria, Iraq, Indonesia, the middle-eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, and many many more places where fossil fuel can be found...even in Malaysia where we have in abundance.
Why the West wants BABI to be acquitted so badly is because the Americans can deal with him better than any other leader of Malaysia, the ones with more than a Malay Studies to his credit. The web of the world politics is still not only about people like BABI, but about the heating of your homes and to keep your cars running.
History has shown that the United States especially, will either deal with its equal (the former Soviet Union) or with some easily blackmailed leaders from the Third World, or it will simply invade by popular demand.
I firmly believe that the American administration has something against the prosecution of BABI, so to support him is to make the job of controlling Malaysia and its natural resources a lot easier.
Yes sodomy is a crime in Malaysia, and if BABI is found guilty he must be punished according to the law. But no amount of pressure from the US via its skewed Washington Post editorial can make Malaysia shiver from the threat!
As a citizen of the world I have now formally withdrawn my undying support of President Barack Obama, and it is true that he is just a puppet in a regime that is steeped with white man's traditions.
Meanwhile we in Malaysia have always been solidly in the sphere of the western hemisphere in our culture, thoughts and doings; in order to continue with that tradition, the US must give us some leeway as to how we should conduct our judicial system.
If BABI is found guilty he will be punished and America must accept this, or otherwise some of us will view your foreign policy is as evil as the next evil empire!
