Malaysian PM Mahathir attacks US over war on Iraq at NAM summit
This was a remarkable speech at a remarkable event. The non aligned movement consists of over 100 countries representing half the world's population. 50 heads of state or heads of government were in attendance at this meeting, including Thabo Mbeki, Megawati Sukarnoputri, Fidel Castro, Pervez Musharraf, Hamid Karzai and many many others. Mahathir pulled no punches in attacking the warmongering, colonialism, racism, arrogance, double standards and greed of the West and in particular the US, without mentioning them by name.
