A Struggle for the Throne Occurs Virtually All the Time

“…A Struggle for the throne occurs virtually all the time..”

This is what Mahathir said in the Far Eastern Economic Review July 20, 1979.

Perhaps, Mahathir’s statement (in 1979) aptly describes the current situation in Malaysia in 2008…

Mmm… that phrase sounds so Machiavellian…

If you are interested in the Il Principe (The Prince), go here for the English version: http://www.constitution.org/mac/prince00.htm.

But for Mahathir himself…. I think there is one phrase that describes his decision to “intervene” in UMNO….
….if you live by the sword, you die by the sword…

Hey…. hold on… I think he said that Malaysia is not like Pakistan…. Of course that last phrase should not be taken literally…
