Crossing the Rubicon

No. 2, and PM in waiting, has crossed the Rubicon  and at the same time thrown down the gauntlet.

In opening a division meeting, he was quoted to say:

“1. If not The Edge, then which source can be trusted for 1MDB reports?

2. I told Ah Jib Kor to quit 1MDB but he didn’t listen,

3. Ah Jib Kor must answer WSJ’s allegations on fund transfers.”

Malaysian politics is like wayang kulit. You don’t go on a frontal attack unless you have marshaled sufficient forces. If you don’t have enough bullets, it would be better to lie low and sit on the fence. You only start to attack when you are 99% sure of your chances. DrSubra did a good job in the other party , and now is the undeniable No. 1 in that party.

We all know that the old horse is now behind no. 2, as they share a common interest to see Ah Jib go.

The interesting thing to note now is what will the 4 Tan Sris in the special task force do? Look at the flag and see which side the wind is blowing is probably a good survival skill, and if they go with the wind, then we will probably have a new No. 1 in no time!

The writing is on the wall, and the wind is getting stronger and stronger. Karma will probably cause ‘What goes round comes around!


On the other hand, do not underestimate the wounded tiger! A tiger is at its most dangerous when wounded and cornered. If he can muster his remaining strength and counter attack, expect another ‘ operasi rumput’.

When two elephants tigers fight, the people in between will suffer. You probably realize by now your net worth has gone down so much in a short period, no thanks to the negative perception that is partly responsible for the slide in our ringgit! We as the rakyat can only wish to have this end quickly so that the country can move on again from this impasse. Sigh!

    There is a Swahili saying “When two elephants fight, the grass suffers; and, when the same two elephants make love, the grass also suffers.”Either way is no good for the people. When they fight there will be collateral damages. When they don’t fight, corruption rears it head and we have 1MDB.

    Suddenly, many people in the ruling coalition have turned completely quiet. Just a day or two ago, they were either defending or trying to justify the suspension on the Edge papers. After DPM’s outburst, now everyone is quiet and watching which way the wind is stronger.
    Typical opportunists!
