(TODAYOnline) - The war of words between Malaysia and the United States over the Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim affair, which began in a letter earlier this month, continued yesterday as the two countries' top diplomats defended their governments' respective stands.

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the US would never stop speaking on human rights and political cases while Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim accused the US of meddling in Malaysia's domestic affairs.

The two had earlier met for 15 minutes on the sidelines of the 15th Asean Regional Forum where Rais told Rice that police investigations into the sodomy case involving Anwar were not politically motivated.

At her press conference, Rice dismissed Malaysia's claim that the sodomy case is an internal affair.

Hi Lilian! Wah, glad you've got time to visit my blog while stalking Guan Eng who has a very hectic schedule ;-) The annoying thing about characters like Condi Rice, James Wolfensohn, Paul Wolfovitz, and Paul Martin speaking about human rights is that their moral standing (and that of the organizations they used to represent) isn't exactly unquestionable. If I were Anwar I'd politely say, "Thanks but no thanks for speaking on my behalf!" Really, it's far preferable for us in Malaysia to tick off our egomaniacal public servants than for members of the New World Order elite to butt in. Still, it's priceless to see Rais and Rice bare their fangs at each other. Guess whose bite is more vicious? :-)

Dear Antares,

A very well designed Magick River Blogsite you have here with a good collection of well researched Blog comments.

I had spent time in Singapore in the mid 60s (Malayan Airways & Malaysian Airways before MSA)& Uncle Harry's "Guided Democracy" (Socialism !) was such that any Cabinet Ministers who commits any graft, etc would rather do unto themselves than meet Harry !

Yes, two wrongs do not make a right !

You are very positive and Magnanimous in your approach to "Amnesty" & "Reconciliation" - Well said Bro.

Cheers & keep up the Blogsite Bro !
