  • I can imagine the look on Najib's face. Similar to the occasion when he walk out of the Al Jazeera pressure cooker interview. The noose is getting tighter and the distance to SB is a kilometer away. Better be prepared for a long haul in SB.

  • Some of the funds went to finance the movie, The Wolf of Wall Street,
    Pekan lanun told Al-Jazeera it was funded by the camel herder chief from UAE. What a load of bullsh*t! Hope that lanun and his big fat hippo will spend the rest of their lifes in Bamboo River Resort.
