Murphy’s Law must be respected

‘According to the latest Facebook post by Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan, trains running in opposition directions will share a single tunnel under the new software program. It is unknown how far into testing the new system has been, but a glitch may result in a disastrous collision between two trains travelling in opposite direction. Singapore trains travel up to 80km/h in the tunnels….
 

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said he wants to save time to repair one tunnel during operational hours while the other carry commuters….
 

“Last night, I joined them on the tracks. They showed me how the new Thales signalling system has made single-line operations possible for the NSL. Simply put, trains travelling in both directions are now able to use a single tunnel while the other tunnel is closed for maintenance works. This flexibility gives us another option when planning our works, to minimise inconvenience to commuters. This was not possible under the old signalling system.”’
 

The above was reported in thestatestimesreview highlighting a potential and very dangerous situation that train commuters are going to be exposed to. According to Murphy’s Law, what can happen will happen, a slightest flaw that could lead to a major accident would lead to a major accident. In a train system that provided for two trains travelling in opposite direction on the same track invites a human made disaster, a disaster caused by the arrogance of man. There are a thousand and one thing that could happen to cause an accident. All nuclear power stations are made not to fail but failed they did. Can this train system be an exception?
 

Boon Wan once lamented that our train system was built without careful consideration and planning like those in Britain. Now that we have the time and resources to do the best, to make sure all things are considered, should we take this risk for an accident to happen that could cause colossal destruction of lives? It is not a case of it would not happen, Thales system will work. Murphy’s Law said that whatever can happen would happen. Trust me, it will happen. This is unacceptable risk, unbearable risk, unthinkable risk that must be avoided at all cost. This is the same kind of thinking that Singapore can house a nuclear power station. Nothing will happen, absolutely sure?
 

The stupidity of human arrogance leaves no bound.
 

PS. Heard of human error, system malfunction, hacking, act of God, sabotaged, negligence, dereliction of duty, terrorism, or forgetfulness, etc etc?

The Americans will not go away, unless driven out like in Vietnam

The Americans are claiming all credit for the defeat of ISIS in Syria, claiming that it was the work of the American coalition. How laughable! They created this beast, financed it to create trouble for the Arab world, and pretend to fight them for several years while allowing them to grow in strength until the Russians stepped in. Even then, the Americans and the coalition were attacking Assad’s forces instead of attacking the ISIS in Syria. 

Now that the Russians and Syrian forces have defeated the ISIS, the Americans are claiming that they did the job. But that is not all. The devious intent of the Americans is exposed. With the end of ISIS, there is no reason for the Americans to be in Syria, just like there is no reason for them to be in Iraq. But no, they must find another reason to keep their soldiers in Syria and Iraq.
 

What can be a good reason for the Americans now? Oh they admitted a mistake in Iraq by withdrawing and allowing the ISIS to rebuild and regroup. Did they withdraw from Iraq? Nay, they are fully in Iraq, an occupied territory of the Empire. The Americans would never leave Iraq. It is a semi colony.
 

The same fate is awaiting Syria. Hey, Syria has a legitimate govt and with govt soldiers. Syria is a sovereign state. What right have the Americans to unilaterally decide to station their ground troops in Syria? Who gave them the authority to do so? Oh, must be the emperor of the American Empire. The Emperor decides that it is for the good of Syria that their forces remain in Syria, even if the ISIS has been defeated. They need to be there to rebuild and grow another ISIS or under another name, to justify their presence. Not only that, they are arming and training the Kurds at the Syrian Turkish border to be another ISIS to bring down the Assad govt.
 

Putin was dumb enough to think he has done his job and started to pull Russian troops out of Syria. The evil Empire is there to stay. The evil Empire will not leave Syria or the Middle East. These are their stakes and protectorates, their colonies.
 

The daft Arabs still thinking that peace will return to the Middle East and they will no longer see American troops in their countries? Fat hope. The very reason for the Empire to be everywhere is to foment trouble, destabilize a country or region to justify their presence.
 

The truth, according to retired army colonel Steve Warren, ‘Unless we want to cede eastern Syria to the Iranians, (the coalition) needs to be there.) Period.

Fantasy story – The elusive secret of winning in sports

Singapore wants to be in the World Cup final. Singapore wants to win Olympic gold medals. Finally one came in the last Olympic Game by courtesy of Joseph Schooling, trained in the USA with the USA claiming the credit. Oops, Singapore is also claiming the credit. Other than this flash in the pan moment, no more golds, no World Cup finals, while other smaller and poorer countries are flashing their Olympic gold medals on their chests and being in the World Cup finals.
 

What went wrong? Every few years Singapore would brag about hiring the best coaches that would bring in the golds but the story always ended with duck eggs. What is this secret of all secrets that Singapore is unable to decipher, with all the money in its pocket, to win some glories for glory hunger Singapore?
 

It is reported that Singapore has engaged another great coach in a Stephan Widmer for the swimmers. Hope he will concentrate on training the coaches. He is not supposed to train the swimmers. Hope he would not be involved in political fightings among the athletes and coaches and do the things he is paid for, ie coaching. Better remind him before he starts work or else he would think it is part of his job, to play with local sports politics.
 

Yes, this new coach has many secret strategies for success, eg, ‘He is someone who has to learn how to travel, how to go through time zones, how to adapt to different conditions as quickly as possible’ or ‘So we sent him to some (Fina) World Cup events last August because the only way to gain this experience is to go through it. You can’t read this stuff out of a book’. Wow, revealing great secrets for success. KNN how come our daft coaches did not know of such great stuff that I also know?
 

Widmer came with a five pronged strategy, to include athletes, competitions, support staff, parents and coaches. I think this will guarantee to bring in more golds. Privately I know that it would end up just like before, more duck eggs. Oops, oops, should not have said such negative things.
 

Seriously, what we need is a miracle or a miracle coach. Is this Widmer a miracle coach, someone that can produce miracles? But he is telling so many things that our coaches did not know or previous international hires did not know.
 

PS. Without the right material, without the willingness and commitment to do three times more than what other athletes are doing, you can only dream of gold medals, even with the most expensive coaches.

When Singapore news are reported by foreigners

I am not sure you people have noticed this, Singapore’s local news have increasingly been reported by foreign sounding names, including deputy editors. The most sensitive thing about a nation state is news and information of the country that should be reported by its own citizens. A point to note is Channel News Asia where the news are reported by the citizens of the respective countries to give it the genuine local flavour. But there are signs that this is slipping away and soon it could become Channel News Angmoh when more and more angmohs will be assigned to report news from angmoh perspective like the good old colonial days. And celebrating the 200 years bicentennial of colonialism is a good and happy thing, something to be proud of.
 

As for a nation state, its local news must be reported by its citizens. Even foreign news should be written to reflect local perspective and not the interest and perspective of foreigners. If foreigners are employed to write and dominate local news, it cannot be avoided that the foreign biases and subjectivity and interests would creep in and if this is unrestrained, the local media would eventually become more like foreign media. By then the readers would not know if they are reading real news or fake news as the flavour could be foreign, the focus could be foreign and the interest could be foreign. Fake news could then become endemic and be part of the daily diet without anyone knowing the difference.
 

Many of the international news were sourced from the west with silly western thinking and biases that are noticeably anti China and if this is contrary to our national interest they should be carefully vetted or else they could be seen as a conscious national policy or editorial policy.
 

How many foreigners, even new citizens, are in the editorial board of our local main media? Or it does not matter as Singapore belongs to everyone here, citizen or not citizen, and it is ok for foreigners to dominate our local media sharing their biases and nuances on local issues and events and matters of national interests, shaping the thinking of Singaporeans?
 

Following the retrenchment of many local reporters, wondering how many foreigners were recruited to replace them to write for our national newspapers. Anyone being betrayed? Our national sovereignty is not just about territorial sovereignty but also news sovereignty and news in cyberspace. We should not allow foreigners to colonise our news media and colonise our thought processes. It is so silly if as a nation we allowed our people to be colonized by foreigners writing for our national media. Our nation building effort all these years would be totally destroyed and gone down the drain. Are we voluntarily employing and paying foreigners to colonise our minds and thought processes?
 

In the same vein as Channel News Asia, Singapore news must be written by Singaporeans. New Singaporeans are not suitable to write Singapore news and dictate the narrative of Singapore’s politics as their roots are still deep in their former home country. They need to be desensitized for a number of years to be allowed to write the Singapore story for Singaporeans.
 

Singapore cannot be anything goes regardless of nationality. Singapore is a nation state, a country, not a non country.
 

PS. The stupid would not know why it is important that Singapore news must be reported by Singaporeans. Singapore news reported by foreigners are fake news, coloured and spiced for the interest of foreigners, and can be anti Singaporeans.

Australia – Silly white woman and her white lies

Samoan PM Tuilaepa Sailele said the comments by Concetta Fierravanti Wells, a junior Australian minister, were ‘”insulting” to Pacific leaders and could “destroy” ties between Canberra and the region.’ “To me, the comments seem to question the integrity, wisdom and intelligence of the leaders of the Pacific Islands.’ He told ABC News. A China expert from Australia National University, Dr Graeme Smith said, ‘Whatever is built is a host country request,…The road goes where the Pacific side wants it to go, not where China wants it to go…The one thing the Pacific needs is roads. It is good for accessing healthcare, it can mean a kid going to school or it can mean the difference for a farmer getting his goods to market.’
 

Unfortunately what Dr Smith said and the simple logic would fail to sink into the simple minds of descendants of convicts, which is quite natural knowing their low intellect. How could convicts think rationally except to utter their vibes of nonsense? This is exactly what is happening and said in Jonathan Pearlman’s article in the ST on 18 Jan. The Australians, after robbing the natives of their land, are acting like the colonial masters of yesterday to condemn not only China but also to insult the intelligence of the Pacific Islanders, that they did not know what they were doing. Only the white gods in Australia know what is good for them and can help them.
 

China has been accused of building roads to nowhere and useless buildings for the Pacific Islands. Chinese aids are condemned and questioned by the white gods. They want the Pacific Islanders to remain as poor natives, lack modern roads and facilities unless the white gods come and provide them but not before robbing them of their land. They robbed the continent of Australia, the islands of New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and all the islands in the Pacific Oceans for centuries, not forgetting the whole of Asia, Africa and North and South America. This is a major part of history that they would not tell.
 

Today, the Pacific Islands, after being robbed and kept as poor nations by the white gods, are seeking assistance from China. China came with aids, to help build their countries. The white gods are envious and pouring scorns and trying to throw discords among the Pacific Islanders with China. The white gods forgot their past colonization of the Pacific Islands and still holding on to their loot from colonialism, Australia and New Zealand, that don’t belong to them but the natives of the two pieces of land.
 

They can continue to sow discord, but the Pacific Islanders are not daft. They know what they want. They know what had been stolen from them. Don’t be surprise one day the white gods would be driven out of their occupied land by the natives they conquered and subdued.
 

The tide is turning against the white gods and their supremacy and rule over the natives of the Pacific Ocean.

Singapore, a country of retards and imbeciles

Singaporeans, despite the high education they received relative to the third world countries around them, have degenerated to a state that they have become famously branded as retards and needed all the protection from the govt. The Singaporeans of today are basically retards and imbeciles, unable to read, unable to think, unable to save their money, unable to see what is happening to their country being sold to foreigners.
 

The good thing is that they have a kind, compassionate and paternalistic govt made up of youngish looking immortals. Some of them even have the angelic look of little children that would do no evil. The story goes that immortals never grow old. This ever caring govt has to double their effort to look after and protect the never ever to grow up, unable to grow up, or forever growing more daft children, the Singaporeans. This job must be very daft for the govt. Oops, I mean very tough for the govt.
 

This world is getting so dangerous for the Singaporeans that have lost the ability to think and to look after themselves that foreigners are not only brought in in large numbers to do the work for Singaporeans, especially the hard thinking jobs like bankers, IT specialists, professors, medicine, engineers running the trains, and running the govt also, that the govt also started to bring in foreigners to protect them, guarding the immigration checkpoints to prevent bad hats from entering to harm the Singaporeans. With such measures, maybe lesser Singaporeans, especially the taxi drivers, would be beaten by foreigners here.
 

As for their money, especially their life savings, the govt has many schemes to make sure that the money is safe and sound and continue to grow and grow during the daft Singaporeans’ life time so that they can pass it on to their children and grand children. They are so daft that they don’t even know or want to spend the money they have saved. Some even agreed that their savings are not their money anymore. Never mind lah, they want to take, want to cheat, want to do anything with money that is no longer theirs it does not matter anymore. Now they even teach the daft Singaporeans not to give cash as angpows to their children. Put the money in the children’s CPF so that they will grow up with a lot of money in their CPF. And the govt can help their children grow the money and then pass the money to their children in due course.
 

Oh, there is another big danger to the Singaporeans that must be taken good care of, the fake news in the media, to be specific, social media. The main media guarantee that only real news will be reported, to educate, inform and entertain the daft. The main media is the only source of real news and good information for the daft and unthinking Singaporeans. Maybe a time will come when the poor and hapless Singaporeans would be protected from all social media for good so that no harm will come to them, when fake news are totally banned. This must sound very comforting to the poor imbecile Singaporeans.
 

And for all the good things the govt are doing to protect the daft Singaporeans, they happily rewarded themselves with several months of bonuses on top of their multi million dollar salaries. And the daft Singaporeans are so glad that no one is complaining about this. With such a good and caring govt, the Singaporeans are so safe and sound. And keeping cage birds is a good hobby as daft Singaporeans also believe that cage birds are very happy birds, well fed and protected from putty cats.
 

And they live happily together forever and ever. Thank you Papa. There is no evil in paradise island.

The people of the world survived a nuclear holocaust

13 Jan 2018 must be deeply etched into the minds of every living bean that it was a day they survived a nuclear holocaust. All it needed in those 30 minutes or less than 20 minutes, was for a panicky and unsteady American nuclear missile commander or a hot head hillbilly to jump the gun and push that button, and all hell broke loose. This was how close the world came to a nuclear war.
 

A nuclear threat, real or imagined, has been hyped by the Americans for so long and so loud that many people really believed in it with good reasons, and so do many American commanders. And when the message said, ‘This is not a drill’, you can expect everyone to take it seriously. It is a matter of life and death. And the military commanders of nuclear weapons knew exactly how long they have to react, less than 20 minutes before all is gone. The time for retaliation is only a few minutes. Thank God that no one behaved like a rogue commander despite the nerve racking minutes to let hell loose.
 

What happened? According to Vern Miyagi, reported in Fox News,
 

‘Vern Miyagi, who oversees the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA), said at a news conference late Saturday that to trigger the alert, there is a two-step process involving only one employee — who both triggers the alarm, then also confirms it.
“There is a screen that says, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’” Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea.
 

Miyagi, a retired Army major general, said about the employee late Saturday: “This guy feels bad, right. He’s not doing this on purpose — it was a mistake on his part and he feels terrible about it.”’

The commentators interviewed on Fox News did not believe a wee bit that this was a simple mistake. They are demanding that the truth be unearth to make sure that nothing of this nature should ever come close again.
 

The decision or authority to push that button to alert a nation of a missile attack cannot be left to a solitary individual. The USA is not a third world half baked country, born yesterday. Can anyone believe that the Americans are so amateurish in such a grave matter of a nuclear attack? And they have experienced senior military officers that were working on a system that were not better than those designed by boy scouts. Everyone believes and expects that the Americans must have very sophisticated failed safe systems installed. For such an important and life threatening situation, the action must be authenticated and by at least two or three persons. And the people involved in pushing such a button must be of very senior position, even the commander Miyagi himself. It cannot be done a single toy soldier. Can you believe it, can you believe what they told you, imbeciles operating a national disaster system? And can you believe it that they have a system to inform the people of a nuclear attack but did not have a system to cancel the announcement if necessary? My God, this is pure ruckus!
 

What is the truth Miyagi? Who was involved, what rank, what nationality, why no authentication? What was Miyagi’s part? Was he involved, was he present when the button was pushed? It would be difficult to explain away this mistake if the guy that pushed the button was another Japanese. Could it be a conspiracy, two Japanese started this serious alarm and a Japanese American Fleet Commander ready to issue an order to attack North Korea? The combination is deadly. Were the Americans still sleeping just like in Hawaii in 1941?
 

How can such a major decision be so flimsily executed? How many people suffered and went through extreme mental hell during the 38 minutes of agony? Oh, the person was just removed to another position?
 

Is Miyagi trying to cover and protect this person? Why refused to identify this person? Is there any reason why this person is let off so leniently as if it was just spilling a cup of tea? The world needs answers, not just the Hawaiians, not just the Americans. The Americans must be responsible and tell the whole truth, nothing but the truth. No cover ups can be accepted. The Americans must come clean.
 

How many commanders were at the verge of pressing the button? How close was the world to a nuclear war? Was there an order from the Pacific Fleet Commander to fire at North Korea but order disobeyed?
 

The world demands an answer. Did someone try to create a false attack on Hawaii to trigger a nuclear war? What would happen if the North Koreans read this as another false flag incident created by the Americans to attack them and therefore let their missiles fly?
