North Korea is Singapore’s friend
Singapore is the third largest trading partner of North Korea. Its second highest ranking leader, Kim Yong Nam, had just paid an official visit with a trade delegation and is now in Indonesia for a similar purpose, to expand trade. Indonesia is also a good friend of North Korea.
But in Singapore, the North Koreans have many enemies. These are the unthinking Singaporeans who have been fed with a diet of anti North Korean misinformation written by westerners and proudly printed almost daily in our media. And the minds of these morons have been so tarnished that when they talked about the North Koreans, they behaved as if their homes have been burnt and looted by the North Koreans or their mothers were raped by them. Such simple minded people with an empty and unthinking head are easy to be programmed to think like little monkeys.
To these people, North Korea is bad, poor, abject poverty, famine, miserable people, aggressor, wanting to start a war with every country, wanting to send their nuclear missiles to attack them. Funny, do they know where is North Korea? Or do the North Koreans even think that these people exist? No, the North Koreans don’t even know of their existence and have had nothing to do with them. But why the hatred? Why did they think, or think they knew so much about North Korea to hate them? Daft is a very appropriate word here. Their whole thinking and mindset have been programmed for so many years that they are behaving exactly as what the programmers wanted them to behave.
Singapore is the third largest trading partner of North Korea. What does that say? Singapore’s leaders have been visiting North Korea frequently and the North Koreans too are visiting the island just as often. It is fortunate the leaders of Asean have not turned into puppets on a string and be made to dance by the puppeteers. They know that North Korea is just another country living its own way of life. And Singapore’s initiative to bring the North Koreans into the main stream of international relations like what it did to the Myanmese is the best way to go forward. Embrace the North Koreans and integrate them into the international community. Not threats of war and sanctions like hooligans and gangsters.
Singapore media has a role to educate the daft Sinkies to think objectively and not to be manipulated into how to think and what to think of the North Koreans in particular and the rest of the world in general.
