The United States is provoking Iran and growing risks of miscalculation could lead to a “world war,” according to Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

“I think as far as I can see, it is America, which is making all the provocation,” Mahathir told CNBC’s Tanvir Gill on Saturday, when asked which side might be responsible for miscalculations.

“First, they withdrew from the (nuclear) treaty, and now they’re sending warships to the Gulf, and doing things that will provoke Iran,” he told CNBC in Bangkok, Thailand where Asian leaders were gathered for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit.

Tensions between the the U.S. and Iran tested new highs on Thursday, when Tehran shot down an unmanned American military spy drone.

The shooting of the drone prompted U.S. President Donald Trump to approve military strikes on several Iranian targets — but he abruptly called off the attacks late Thursday. The president said he withdrew the plan because he believed the loss of life — estimated to be about 150 people — would have been disproportionate to the downing of an unmanned drone.

“I am in no hurry,” Trump said on Twitter Friday. “Our Military is rebuilt, new, and ready to go.”

Im tired of seeing this old man paying lip service to China & Islamic nations. The guy is 93 years old and should not be involved in politics anymore. His reemergence as a political figure was just to get votes and he is not the one running things.

nearly all countries in Asia are run by geriatrics.  Shinzo Abe and Xi Jinping are considered young by Asian standards.  The guy ruling Vietnam (Nguyen Phu Trong) right now is supposedly 75 years old in official papers but I bet he´s actually older, like early 80s at least.

50s are young. 60s and 70s are the average. 80s and 90s are old. You don't see anyone running for US presidency in their 80s.

in 10 years most of the heavyweight dictators will be in their 70s (Russia, China, Central Asia...).  The wind of change is coming.
