Singapore a big player among the super powers

Yes we punch above our weight. And we must guard our national interest zealously, and speak out against any nation that does anything that will harm our national interest. One particular nation is China. China is growing its military forces to a level that is becoming a threat to us. It is building aircraft carriers too, never mind if their ICBM will wipe us off the face of this earth, and this will undermine the free passage of ships along international waterways. It will be dangerous if they park their aircraft carriers in the South China Sea or in the Straits of Malacca. We must question China’s motive.

We have no problems with the Americans. Our national interests coincide with the Americans. And we are pleased with their military might and military presence. They are here to protect our national interests. The Americans are a benign and friendly superpower. They have military bases everywhere, sailing their naval fleets everywhere, including the South China Sea, all for altruistic reasons, to protect smaller countries against China. Just dunno who America was protecting against before China. What is good for the Americans is good for us. What is good for China may be dangerous to us.

Americans know this and are watching the Chinese like a hawk. The Chinese are now an equal to the American war machine. Even India is concerned. India has historical and territorial disputes with the Chinese. And both are Asian superpowers and are rivals in this sense.

The trouble is that the arrogant Chinese are ignoring even India. They are only running a race with the Americans in their cross hair. They have no time to cast a glance at the Indians. The Indians are inconsequential to them.

But still we must make known our concerns to the Chinese, to make them listen to us. China must consider our national interest in what they do. They better don’t ignore us. Hey China, tell us why you need to build such a big and powerful military force? Tell us, tell us, we want an answer. We need to question you for our national interest.

China, tell us of your intention. Don’t be rude, we are asking you, tell us, tell us…..tell us please….please. Look down here, we are here.

And all the while I thought China, post Deng Xiaoping, seek advice from our founding father, the first prime minister of Singapore. It's inconceivable that any advice given did not take Singapore's interest into consideration and to have the present situation where Singapore mistrust the intention of our region's superpower is unbecoming of a friendly neighbour. Think it may be time to convert our world's number2 port into the world's number1 US naval base.

China is developing its economy so that it does not depend on the market of those developed but poor countries such as USA and EU(High debt),when it reaches that stage it will dump the USD,and the world has to find a new reserve currency,I guess it would be a combination of USD,RNB,Euro,Yen,etc

China is developing its military,and its catch up with UncLe Sam is shorten as US is poor and China is rich,how fast depends on how poor US becomes.

China is going to lead certain new industries such as renewable energy,etc

In renewable energy,US is now clear leader in Space Solar but System(SSS) but China has money
to invest to catch up.

The next few years will be decisive! Can US rebound ?can China sustain?Would there be a repeat of 1930 depression?when will USD collapse?will Euro collapse?will there be third world war?how China catch up militarily?How much support each side will get?

It is a really dangerous world!

I do not think there will be world war as most countries are not willing to choose between China and US.
The most it is wars between China and US,and a mock up trade war is about to started.

The Dangers Of A Trade War
We had a trade war in the 30`s which led to the Great Depression. We already have small signs of trade wars breaking out, Brazil, France, other places...now America.

This can be very dangerous in the end. - in RT America

China has a unique opportunity to be world number 1,if it can persist in peaceful rise.

It must find a solution to resolve the income equality issue and tackles corruption.Singapore's example does not really provide the solution.

It must make its unique political system,that is one party democracy,only one political party but limited their leaders term to 8 years,this might be a new model for the world in comparision to multi-parties democracy as the world is practising now.

China: Our military is for national defence.
Singapore: What is your intention?

China: It is for national defence.

In terms of GDP in Purchase parity,China would exceed US by 2016-IMF forecast,but I think in terms of PP,China would exceed US by then,as it depends on how long China can manage to keep RMB value low against USD and Euro,but if China can manage its economy transformation well to knowledge based,it will come sooner(in 2010,IMF estimated China GDP at 10.1 trillion in terms of PP),and RMB has plenty of room to move up against USD and E.uro

A poodle by any other name is still a small dog. Bark as loud as it can, China will care two hoots about the noise.

Same as our politicians treating citizen's complaints as noise. China is dishing out the same buffet to all the poodles of the evil empire.

It's Karma, nothing less!

We have many great patriots stalking China and questioning everything the Chinese are doing, to protect our national interests. There must be giving the Chinese a tough time. They meant business.

They should be awarded the nation's highest award during National Day for performing such patriotic acts.

notanotherspinstory said...

China is too dumb to take over the world. It has no power projection capabilities. Weak navy. Vulnerable supply lines.

It's USA anybody should be worried about.

Anonymous said...

I think China is smarter than what most people think.

Many empires have sprung up over the centuries, bullying the Chinese in the process, but they all ended up in the dust ever since Chinese civilisation began, with no exception.

The British, Spanish, Dutch, French, German and Japanese under illustrious leadership were great conquerors but also fell in the end and I believe the Chinese could see what is inevitably coming for the Americans as well.

Anonymous said...

No need to worry for China. Some Singaporean Chinese journalists will make sure that China will not be able to become a super power or to harm any country. With their talents and influence, the Singapore Chinese journalists are a force to be reckon with.

Everytime they question China or write an article about China, the Chinese leaders will tremble in their pants.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

They are the self appointed guardians of Singapore's national interest. And China is the perpetual enemy, a hostile country with hostile intent.

Anonymous said...

Anyone who asks China what is their intention for a strong military force only reveals his own stupidity.

Is he expecting China to say, 'It is to screw you?'

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Yep, and what is wrong with China having a strong military for self defence when Japan and the US are many times stronger than what the Chinese have? And everyday instigating or provoking them, flying spy planes into its courtyard and threatening to teach China a lesson?

The said...

/// The Chinese are now an equal to the American war machine. ///

Aiyah, redbean, you gave your sarcasm game away. First you wrote the sentence above.

Then, in your reply at 9.04AM, you wrote:

/// Yep, and what is wrong with China having a strong military for self defence when Japan and the US are many times stronger than what the Chinese have? ///

So, is it same same, or different different?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Good morning The. No one really know how strong the parties are. One thing for sure, the Americans are the strongest.

Depending on the situation or context, the Americans will one day kpkb how strong China is and on another day how backward the Chinese military is. It is all relatively speaking, and saying it one way now and a different way later: )
