Spore won’t harm Indonesia and Malaysia


Many pundits and commentators and laypeople would have thought that the revelation of Singapore assisting the Americans to tap into the communications of its neighbours would turn into a big embarrassment and also affect relations with the two countries would only find that this is not true. According to Shanmugam, the Indonesians and Malaysians know that we would not do anything to harm them. After all it is only an allegation and there is no proof that Singapore has done anything unfriendly.

We have very good relations with our neighbours and with such an assurance they would have taken our words in good faith, just like the govt will not do anything to harm the interests of its people. It is common sense and good neighbourliness.

Ok, case close. Everyone can go and party and play more golf.

The spat between USA, SG, Malaysia and Indon are all wayang. All the above countries are ally of USA. Malaysia posture as anti USA to pacify its Islamic citizen showing them Malaysia Boleh only.

The more pro China country in Asean are Cambodia and Myanmar, whereby Myanmar is known to be very unreliable ally and a frequent backstabber of China.

Singapore is in the more inner circle of Pax America, where Malaysia and Indon are in the more outer circle.

Brilliant press statement.

As if Malaysia and Indonesia are just going to brush it off and believe Shanmugam, without the slightest hint of skepticism -- when the "evidence" suggests otherwise.

This guy is deluded!

You're right. My mistake ;-)

If I was caught doing something wrong -- with hard to refute evidence to prove my guilt, I want this kind of lawyer -- who can win a case by arguing that 2 + 2 = 2 -- to defend me.

A man like this must be worth millions ;-)
