Three little words was all I responded to a counsellor buddy when he sms-ed me at 6.00pm that Pak Lah had decided "not to contest" for the UMNO president's post come March 2009, which means he must relinguish the Prime Minister's post to his successor as UMNO President, noinations for which will start soon.
It was "bad" that Opposition Leader Sdr Anwar Ibrahim missed the deadline to deliver Merdeka Mission 916 after the successful March 8, 2008 General Elections, and August 26 Permatang Pauh by-election.
It became "worse" when Malaysia Today blogger-editor Raja Petra Kamarudin was arrested under the Internal Security Act -- he was holding the key to upsetting the incumbent Deputy UMNO President now primed to take over UMNO-presidency, and along with it, Prime Ministership of Malaysia.
"Worst" is yet to come if the last card that the Pakatan Rakyat leaders can't come together with a final plan to vote out the current lame-duck PM that Pak Lah has just become after announcing earlier this afternoon (October 8, 2008) that he's NOT contesting the UMNO party number one post.
The last card is the Vote of No Confidence that Anwar has no choice now but to table in the coming session of Parliament starting next Monday.
Fellow Malaysians, bow your heads in prayer that this Vote succeeds. It is the manifestation of the 916 Spirit of Change that was clearly demonstrated by the Rakyat/Voters in the March 8 GE and reinforced in the PP by-election.
My last card is that behind Pak Lah's sweet "Mr Nice Guy" smiles there is a dart of Miss Ivy Poision waiting to hit the target behind the PM's forced departure from the PWTC Stage in the next five-six months.
As they say -- I really don't know who "they" refers to -- ONE DAY IN POLITICS IS A LONG, LONG TIME.
If nothing else works to bring to fruition/climax of Merdeka Mission 916, Malaysians can turn skywards and cry out loud for heavenly intervention.
God help NegaraKu, and dear Raja Petra, and the other 60+ ISA victims. And the bereaved family of the murdered Mongolian beauty Altantuya,caught in the cessful of UMNO cesspool full of cronies, crocs, crooks and C4.
