Tun Mahathir for Iraq?

::According to a Knight Ridder Tribune columnist, Todd Crowell, our Tun Mahathir would be the ideal leader to lead Iraq. This was reported in a Bernama news item.
In his commentary carried by the Bahrain Tribune, Crowell described Tun Mahathir as a Muslim leader with the best credentials to lead the chaotic, tattered country to "democratic stability and prosperity". He further asked :: "If the goal is to create a stable, prosperous and democratic Iraq, who can better to do it than Malaysia's former Prime Minister (Dr) Mahathir Mohamad, who led the most stable, prosperous and democratic Muslim country in the world today for 22 years?"
Crowell said the Tun with all his experiences and all the good things that the Tun has done for our country during his 22 years as the helmsman. He credited the Tun with transforming a country dependent on rubber and palm oil into a regional high-tech, manufacturing and financial powerhouse, and successfully governed a country divided, like Iraq, on racial, ethnic and religious lines.
Unfortunately, i was unable to trace the original article online either from Knight Ridder or the Bahrain Tribune. So we just have to go by the Bernama report.
i can't help wondering whether the Tun would be interested in this Iraq job, knowing that he is quite obviously not receiving much from all his advisory posts and on top of that whatever receivable also happens to be taxable. This would obviously be a well paid temporary stewardship of Iraq. It would be a job which would allow him to wield, once again, power and authority, things which he is used to and can do 'well'. At the present moment, he is probably bored stiff with little to do and his recent forays into domestic politics have not been received kindly. The new PM, Pak Lah, would also be more than just glad to have him out of hairs. Certainly an arrangement which would make both the ex-PM and the present PM happy.
