US and UK pilots are "murderers"

Ex-Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has accused the UK and US of "state-initiated terror" in a speech.
His remarks on the Iraq war prompted the British high commissioner and several other diplomats to walk out.
Dr Mahathir said US and UK pilots in Iraq were "murderers" and compared the war to rocket attacks on Palestinians.

"The British and American bomber pilots came, unopposed, safe and cosy in their state of the art aircraft, pressing buttons to drop bombs, to kill and maim. And these murderers, for that is what they are, would go back to celebrate 'mission accomplished'. Who are the terrorists? The people below who were bombed or the bombers? Whose rights have been snatched away?"

The last time i remember hearing from Dr Mahathir was inMarh 2003 when he made this statement

"If innocent people who died in the attack on Afghanistan and those who have been dying from lack of food and medical care in Iraq are considered collaterals, are the 3,000 who died in New York and the 200 in Bali also just collaterals whose deaths are necessary for operations to succeed?"

The rights and wrongs of the Ex-Malaysian PM's opinions are being debated with balance Here

I put in my comments there to. Nice find H. What I find funny is that he seems to be more mad that pilots are "cosy" in the cockpits of their aircraft, and in essance that is the problem.

Would he be as mad if those same people strapped the warheads to their chest and ran into the targets on foot? Or is that ok?

I think the point he is trying to make is that they are both the same

as i qoute further down
"If innocent people who died in the attack on Afghanistan and those who have been dying from lack of food and medical care in Iraq are considered collaterals, are the 3,000 who died in New York and the 200 in Bali also just collaterals "

he is saying that both is terrorism
