Do you see the difference between the U.S. edition of Newsweek and the rest of the world??!!! Does that mean the US does apply Censorship??!!
Two weeks before of the US invasion of Iraq, I was in Paris on business trip. Our whole team went for dinner in a restaurant close to Versailles, while chatting with an American colleague he angrily stood up and left feeling insulted that I insinuated that his government might be lying to him! He was certain that Iraq does possess weapons of mass destruction. Mr. Forbes wherever you are I hope that by now you realized that your government does lie to you.

Dr. Mahathir Mohamad (born July 10, 1925) is the former Prime Minister of Malaysia. He held the post from 1981 to 2003. During his term in office he was credited for engineering Malaysia's rapid modernization and the resulting growth of prosperity.
During his term in office, Mahathir turned Malaysia into a regional high-tech manufacturing, financial, and telecommunications hub through his economic policies based on corporate nationalism, known as the various "Malaysia Plans" which set out the government middle-term objectives. These policies remained in effect almost to the end of his tenure in office.
His pet projects have included Perwaja Steel, an attempt to emulate South Korea and Japan, the Proton car company, and Astro, a satellite television service.
Mahathir is credited with spearheading the phenomenal growth of the Malaysian economy, now one of the largest and most powerful in South East Asia. Growth between 1988 and 1997 averaged over ten percent and living standards rose twenty-fold, with poverty almost eradicated and social indicators such as literacy levels and infant mortality rates becoming on par with developed countries.
Can we borrow him?

I wonder what will happen if someone wears these pants, walking around the streets of Cairo???!!! To be honest we always see crazy fashion shows but I never saw anyone dressed like that anywhere I've been. It always made me wonder who buys that stuff and where the hell they get to wear it?!!
