France and US are signatories of 'Extradiction Orders' between their countries.

Think it could be due to issues of "warrant of arrest" over the now on-going trial of Scorpene Corruption Trial in Paris?

So who's going to listen to a PM with no credibility?

Remember that Italian PM, Berlusconi, now gone!

The information compiled to date are damning enough to make our PM a lame dog. A dead pigeon among world leaders!

How to talk to other leaders with the Tongkang Selam scandal over his neck?

Anything he says now might not be reason.

Would it be Treason???

It's treason alright! Najib was Defense Minister when he authorised the purchase of 2 over-priced Scorpene Submarines in 2002 at hefty price of RM7.3 billion.

He is now at the center of the arms procurement corruption trial involving French vendor DCNS that began in Paris in April 2012 and he is alleged to have accepted bribe of RM570 million and refuse to attend trial even when subpena'd.

Let me make a guess - the US Attorney-General may have come to forewarn Najib to not make it hard for them. If they need to arrest with a warrant at hand, they will without hesitation and not to make it hard for them.:D

More serious matters loom large on Malaysia - how about our potential rights in the Spratleys?

What good would a lame dog PM do? What image would other interested nations think Malaysian leaders have? Would the major powers toss us around?

Would they panda our leaders with stupid gifts and other corrupt monetary forms?

Hypothetically, the cowboys could stuff him in their saddle bags and there goes our Spratleys oil and gas rights and interests ! ;-)
