When you are in trouble, you need to escape.
So you look for a (e)scapegoat, like the Abrahimic one.
And the best person to be made the scapegoat is the one that you know deep in your bones, is more competent than you in every way, and therefore a genuine threat to your position - and your bank vault!
Better still, whack him first, give him a black eye and say that the he did it unto himself.
Then make him out to be a sodomite that the god of Abrahim abhors.
Then bring out the tilam (mattress) stained with the sin of sodomy.
Carry it in and out of the august courts.
Make a public spectacle of the sin that Sodom and Gomorrah paid a heavy price for.
Then lock him away.
Never mind that the doctor who testified cried that the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah might have sinned, but he could not find, anyway he tried, any seed of sodomy in the alleged victim.
What was the problem? Simple aje. Amend the charge.
So, from sodomy to abuse of power.
And from abuse of power, you got your scapegoat and nemesis out of the way.
Of course, the favourite Malaysian scapegoat is Anwar Ibrahim.
Because this guy does not give up.
And when your nemesis does not give up, you begin to see phantoms, ghosts and goblins and maybe a gremlin or two.
Of course, you see your own shadow too.
And who's going to call the ghostbuster?
It's scary baby!
Anwar has been blamed for a thousand and one thing that ills the nation.
He had been blamed for causing the '88 financial meltdown or for attempting to aggravate it.
He had also been accused of cavorting with the Jews and running with foreign devils.
Anwar is also being blamed for putting the country's future economy in jeopardy should the opposition be voted into power in the coming ge13.
So, how could you not pin the Sabah Sulu problem on Anwar? There are ten reasons why you should
Anwar must be very suicidal, mad or plain bodoh (stupid) to do so when he and the opposition group he leads, are just in the cusp of a famous win in the coming general election.
Yeah, somebody call the ghostbuster..
