Pak Lah smashes many more M'sian rice bowls

In an interview published by the Bangkok Post, PM Abdullah is quoted as accusing ex-PM Dr. Mahathir Mohamad of "smashing the rice bowl" of his very controversial son-in-law and Umno Youth's deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin. What about the rice bowls of many other Malaysians who have been smashed, or going to be smashed, by drastic price hikes and other effects or impacts of Umnoputras' continuing process of primative accumulation or re-accumulation (of capital) and unrelenting scramble for superprofit? Who would go to foreign media to defend, for example, the ex-residents of Kampung Berembang whose smashed items are not only rice bowls but their shelters and entire kampung halaman? In one protest against petrol price hike, even the head of one protestor was literally smashed.
