Hsien Loong – Who will defend us?


This simple question used to be just that and very easy to answer. Today this is a very complex question and is very difficult to answer. The first part is the meaning of ‘us’. Who is this ‘us’, the elite, the new citizens, the PRs or the Singaporeans? Get the picture? This ‘us’ despite the Govt’s repetitive assurance that we are all inclusive is turning elusive. Are the new citizens ‘us’? Are the PRs ‘us’? Are the foreigners on employment passes ‘us’?  Or does ‘us’ refer to the elite, the PAP, the nobles and the aristocrats?

How many ordinary citizens would just take this ‘us’ at face value, that it means all of us, ie the Singaporeans, the people whose fathers, husbands, sons and brothers are NSmen?

Then there is the issue of what to defend? If you are not even eligible to buy a HDB and does not own any property here, what is there to defend, the foreigners, the elite, the rich property owners? 50 per cent of the residents is foreigners, or more if the new citizens are included. If one does not have a stake in this island, why should they be defending the foreigners and the rich?

Ask the taxi drivers and security guards or those who have remortgaged their properties to the govt, what is there to defend? Ask the displaced PMETs, what is there to defend?

The third point, defend against who? In the traditional interpretation of defence, the people of a country will defend against the invaders, the foreigners from taking over their country. If the country is already taken over by foreigners, if the foreigners have taken over everything, what is there to defend and to defend against who when the foreigners are already here have taken over the country?

Just to reiterate that National Service be abolished.

Next, defend oneself and those dear from exploitation and abuse of manipulation by the Aristocrats to fulfill their very own desires. Their appetites go way way beyond power and wealth. They want fame and glory for eternity. FUCK THEM.

So uncle redBEAN is asking 3 questions:

- Who is this ‘us’

- what to defend


- defend against who

/// Are the new citizens ‘us’? Are the PRs ‘us’? Are the foreigners on employment passes ‘us’? Or does ‘us’ refer to the elite, the PAP, the nobles and the aristocrats? ///

The "us" refers to the foreigners who, jobless in their home countries, came here to take away jobs from the locals, and bashed the local taxi drivers. Like the fat slob who was itching for a fight with a small guy in the train. The "us" refers to the Filipinos who want to take over this country. And the aristocrats - natural and artificial - official and officious.

Hahahahaha. The foreigners are here to defend against Sinkie's No:1 enemy - Below replacement fertility rate which will lead to the extinction of Sinkies in the long run.

'Us' means everyone, excluding those in opposition wards.

The explanation is simple. In everything that the PAP planned, the opposition voters are not recognised as 'us'.

What is so difficult to understand?

I believe is a macro question LHL is asking.
In times of real war, who will come to our defence?
China, USA or South East alliance?
If we have to choose side , say against China aggression, will majority of Singaporeans Chinese origins have any qualms?
If we have to against USA, will the Chinese come to protect us?
But judging from all our engagements so far, is a foregone conclusion which side we will pick.

Our National Pledge which claims One People One Nation is far from the truth. With the government not listening to people and people has no way to turn to, there is no unity. I see a dysfunctioned system in place.

My friend Simon advised me not to go on my usual weekend 2 nights
casino gambling cruise on 12 Sept 2015. No reason was given.

Why 12 Sept 2015?

Why? Most likely Polling day. Every vote counts, whether your friend support PAP or opposition.

If Teochew Ah Hia party contest less than 50% seats on Nomination day, PAP will be returned to power after polling day by winning least 93% seats, same as last time, or maybe better.

Of course RB and many others will be very disappointed lah for sure, and kpkb for another 5 years.

Do you think the Singaporean core and the MRT trains are totally destroyed due to neglect by the PAP government?
If yes, then there is nothing left to defend tio bo?
Can we say "Let Hsien Loong defend his condo and bungalow by himself lor".

Do u want your children being forced to name themselves as Yamabuto, Robertson or Basooki?
Do you want to suffer and lay along gor kar kee with houseflies flying around without a proper place for burial?
Do you want to be forced to pray to imaginary God?
If your answer is No then its every citizen duty to defend and the best way of contributing is by
SERVING NATIONAL SERVICE.

I think the best defence is to fuck agongkia until his backside is red and he comes to his sense lar.

Even the paper generals now "on the other side" to "precipitate " black Swan events to swing votes away ....

Are the generals also "fedup" liao?

So "Tulan" score own goal?

No need Singaporeans lah.
Aliens are better.
Aliens will do the National Service that Singaporeans don't want to do.
Nothing for Singaporeans to die for lah.
Even the HDB flat does not belong to me.
Everything belongs to our PAP aristocrats.
Fight & die for what?

Ya lor, even die for Marland oso better than sinkieland ......

Aiyoh.
So subsidy mentality.
Does LHL really think China or USA owes Singapore a living or defence umbrella?
50 years of PAP government.
Billions of dollars spent on our defence budget.
And still want to go crying to China or USA for help.
Might as well cancel National Service lah!
If LHL got no confidence in his PAP Generals.

true or not?
With one shot (the recent MRT meltdown), they lost all their credibility.
Don't sack Desmond Kuek.
He lends a lot of credibility to the Opposition Parties case against PAP.
True or not?

Tiok. More such generals the more the merrier. Help swing massive votes to opposite camp.

It's a deadly fight but .....

Self-created by their paper generals ...... for scoring own goals forever ....

That gives me an idea. Like the cardboard policemen, why not create cardboard generals to protect us? Place them at strategic locations to warn our enemies.

Why not just put up a cardboard picture of BG Lee and his wife.
Our enemies will either die of laughter or die of fright.
