Stupidity has no cure

Whenever Xi Jinping goes on a foreign state visit, he would bring along an entourage of businessmen and agreements to be signed for infrastructure developments, trade deals and a suitcase of cash to fund the deals. Many developing countries are eagerly hoping for a visit by President like waiting for a Santa Claus in Christmas. And they would not be disappointed.

Duterte of the Philippines just did the reverse. He brought a team of businessmen to visit Xi Jinping. This is like if the Mohammed does not visit the mountain, the mountain will go to Mohammed. And the results are likely to be the same. Duterte is going to return to the Philippines with a bag of goodies for his people. There will be many trade deals and infrastructure development projects. He wants a few railway lines for the Philippines and would not be disappointed. If he wants ports, industrial projects, new cities, all he has to do is asked.

When the Obama goes visiting, he would bring along his generals and also an entourage of business honchos.  And he would be very generous to sell military weapons, guns, missiles, tanks, fighter aircraft, battle ships, drones, anything that can be used for wars. And in return he would want the countries he visited to sign military alliances with the Americans, to provide military bases for the Americans.

And the unthinking will be screaming their lungs out, the Chinese President is expansionist and planning to start a war of conquest. The Chinese President is coercing the other countries to take advantage of them, to exploit their natural resources. The Chinese are belligerent and waiting to start start. Just you wait, just you wait, they are coming to attack you and to rob your country to build a Chinese Empire.

Oh, the Americans are peace loving countries. They sell weapons to countries for peace, so that they can live in peace. They sign military alliances to protect these countries from their enemies. They did not have enemies but once they signed the agreements, the enemies of the Americans would become their enemies. And they must provide land for the American Empire to station their soldiers and war machine.  No, the Americans are not taking control of their countries, the Americans are not their colonial masters, just the Emperor of the American Empire and these countries signing the military alliances just become part of the American Empire and now have enemies to fight for.

The Americans are all for peace, very peace loving people. When they conduct regime change like the invasion of Iraq, Libya, Syria and Afghanistan, they are there to fight terrorists or rogue regimes, to protect the people of those countries.

Yeah, yeah, the Americans are for peace, the Chinese are for war. The Chinese are coming. Never mind if the Americans are already in their countries with their soldiers and military bases as the new masters.

Stupidity has no cure.

Below are quotes from Duterte, ‘The Asian giant was “good”, …It has never invaded a piece of my country all these generations….During the Cold War, China was portrayed as the bad guy, …And all of these years, what we have read in our books in school was all propaganda produced by the West.’

Remove your blinkers and compare facts against fiction, for goodness sake, and stop being stupid. We must know our own history, write our own history, know our own truths.

Being friendly with the Americans does not mean must be unfriendly to China. Or the Americans said publicly we don't take sides, we don't force our friends to take sides, but behind the scene, you are either with us or against us, you must attack China if you want to prove you are our friend?

This is a timely post. Deterte is starting his official meeting with Xi and Li and one more head in China. What he wanted: "i hope china will give us a rail". Readers can find Deterte s CCTV interview by Shui Yanyi(?). Indeed, US never bother much about pinoys s good life after the typhoon haiyen or others. US Carter said "every" port visit of his carrier is a contribution to Asia pacific stability. Carter is giving more "stability" outlined in an article written by him "The Rebalance of A P security".

These 2 descriptions told the facts. US is using Asian nations to justify its carriers value. US has not charged Asians countries for each port visits. Somedays, if Trump won, Japan and Korea will have to pay for US s big big bills on defense. Question is this:

Asians want carrier visits? Each visit will cost millions USD. (how much per sail?) These bills are enjoyed by the commanders who fly at wish with helicopters to carriers and anywhere.

Deterte wants a "rail". That cannot be given by Carter, can he? Carter wants higher defense budget for his salary and commanders enjoyment, besides newer jets to protect their lives on carriers.

China does not do "carrier business". Not yet. Russia is beginning to do the similar job in Syria on request of Syria govt which US wants to topple it. That is the real hidden problem behind. Iraq was toppled. Libya was toppled on similar reason by UK and France. The wikileak also said Hillary and Obama closed eyes for Saudi and Qatar to finance IsIs. Hillary was happy to support "moderate" IsIs with weapons. These, China and Russia do not do. Instead, Russia bombed the booming trade of IsIs selling oil from Iraqi oil wells. Russia s move irritated Obama as the air photos showed US was not bombing IsIs but bombing the Syria troops.

Deterte is a different character. There are drug lords became politicians in Philippines. His brave and brutal ways drew Obama tried to gain ground on human rights to belittle the former. So Deterte has no choice but to ask china to help to provide reformation facilities for drug addicts. US will not give such things to help pinoys. More pinoys need drugs, more pinoys need to be prostitutes to be near the ports of US facilities. This is the western strategy to "calm" asians countries for hundreds of years. China had an opium war with the west. I see Deterte has no choice but to bent towards china. Question is: FOR HOW LONG?

When Deterte will change bark to US as ally? It depends. Will china go to extend to help pinoys similar to Cambodia? It is unlikely. The one road one belt is not built along Philippines side. China wants to avoid straits of Malacca which is controlled by US carriers at some port at the tip of malaya.

Once the rail road is built to Germany, the trade in malaya and singapore will drop tremendously. Deterte can see this, Philippines will be worst if not having trade ties with china now. But little dot is not interested. It has lots of export market to do with. China can wait till it is ready to trade with little dot, then the leeders will be invited to teng suar, tangsan. Meanwhile, china must follow the strong and powerful new laws, no other way about it. Not even Aus dare not to follow US to tour Scs. On this contrast, Deterte is coward, not as strong and smart as little dot generals.

As a Chinese, be it Malaysian Chinese, Singapore Chinese, Thai Chinese, Indonesian Chinese or whatever Chinese, you are still part of a civilisation. Like it or not, you cannot change that status.

It is the same as not able to change your parentage.

Only fools will go around scolding their parents or debasing his own civilisation on flimsy one or two points that the West told them so. The westerners must be laughing themselves silly at silly Chinese thinking they are white and go around bashing Chinese as a civilisation.

Why don't they hang themselves and save going through the pain of looking at the mirror and seeing a non white everyday?

Yes, the one in the mirror is a silly Chinese that he so despises and hates. How silly can such asses be?

Self hate by overseas Chinese is a big problem. African americans or Afro carribeans are immensely proud of their African ancestry. Only overseas Chinese hate on their civilisation because they are not "white" enough.

There is a slow change from regional identities based on dialect and clan. To a broader Chinese identity based in mandarin. There is also this mix of Chinese ancestry with the country of residence.

In the past a person most probably identify as a Cantonese living in Penang. Now that same person will probably be a Malaysian Chinese.

Actually it is about time Phillipines and China worked better together.

But to be a friend to China is not necessarily an enemy of the US.

To that end, sorry to say you haters, it is still Singapore, and LHL, GCT and LKY in the past who have played their cards right.

We have maintained close ties with China. Some angry comments are not going to change that. The reason why Durtete's visit is such a big deal now is because they have so much catching up to do in that respect.

And we maintain close ties with western countries as well.

Anonymous said...

@ 3.45 pm. My comment is nothing to do with military hardware. Neither do I believe in allying with the US and fight every war with them. In fact, where have we done so? We do not send warships to the South China Sea and we have never sent ground troops to do actual fighting in any war, beyond the sending of medical and security teams. Even Msia sent troops to Somalia and we did not. I think our avoidance of getting dragged into American conflict is working just fine.

And as for my 3.25 pm comment, please don't laugh. Since you all are so pro at collaborating with China, surely you will know what it means. We have been doing it for years. It was not so long ago, some of you were trying to blame the 70% on new citizens. Many of these would be PRC. Not just PRC chinese, but also Msian Chinese.

For what its worth, I agree with Durtete's moves, just like how I agree with what we have done to work with China over the years. All your so called economic benefit and technology, we are doing it long before Durtete. That's why Durtete is following us, and not we should be following him.

Nobody can ignore China. That's why I find Donald Trump full of bullshit when he talk on how he can beat them so easily. But, collaborating with the Chinese has its price, just as collaborating with anyone. No need to be so PLP down here. Hua ren is not equal to Zhong guo ren. That has all along be very clear.

Anonymous said...

There is really also no need to look at China through rose tinted glasses. China as a land and race is where we all came from, but we are not vassals of the CCP. We must understand that China changed leadership plenty of times.

The CCP of today glorifies Mao and largely ignores the achievement of Sun Yat Sen and the KMT. Even for simple matter as defeating the Japanese, the CCP's propaganda totally blanks out the war record of the better equipped (western supplied of course) KMT in fighting the Japanese. Also, who can forget what Deng Xiaoping did. If he had followed Mao's way and not opened up China to the world (which means exposing to the west as well), where would they be today?

So now Philippines is not following the laws. Philippines agreed with China to have direct talk on South China Sea issue. Philippines did not demand China to give up the island, wrong the laws said the rock: scarborough shoal. Philippines is entering illegal dealings with China totally disregard the strong and powerful new laws came from the Judgment claimed to have UN backing. US and its allies must punish China and Philippines for conducting illegal deals against the UN back Judgment which singapore fully supports. Singapore needs to join US carriers to do the freedom of navigation sea patrol. Philippines is now a threat to navigation for having private deals with China against the Judgment s laws.

@8.46 pm.

1) I am Singaporean Chinese. Don't see whats wrong with that. Even if I am a mainlander, HongKonger, Taiwanese, I am Chinese. But I do not need to align myself with the CCP.

2) I am also never helping any westerners who say Chinese Civilization is stupid. You are oversensitive to think that. Don't know where that comes from.

3) My point here number one is simple. I reject the notion that just because Durtete is making up for lost time to work with the Chinese, he is so much better compared to Singapore government. We have been working with the Chinese for years. He is following in our footsteps.

4) Point number two, working with China will come at a price, just as with anyone. Its normal. Since we are all Chinese, we know we don't do losing business, and we all love a bargain.

If you are so worked up over my comments, you can go and take issue with the comments at 5.42, 5.46 and 8.46. Those are the more insulting ones. When I give proper reasons, you call me banana and silly Chinese face. Well done. Go refute those other statements then.

Lycurgus80ofsparta said...

Increase in citizenship especially in ethnic Chinese is necessary. The birthrate of Chinese (1.15) in Singapore is much lower then the Malays(1.79). If this continues in the long run together with the increase in Malay nationalism/Islamism up north, will create a very unstable
scenario. If they gain the majority why not they form a party to advocate for rejoining Malaysia where they can enjoy Bumiputra rights ?

The problem in the future is that there will not be anymore ethnic Chinese willing to come.

Anonymous said...

@Lycurgus.

Good! At least you acknowledge the reality!

And yes, in future, as China gets more developed, there will be less Chinese willing to come. But I believe it will not be for a long time. With a one child policy, China is already overpopulated. Not to mention with now, they are allowed to have 2. For the world's most populous country, there will always be those looking out.

Now, where do they go? To the US? Lol. Think Trump will want too many of them? Haha. Europe? Where the economy is bad to worse? Only if they are rich I guess. So Singapore still remains an attractive location with many of them already here.

Lycurgus80ofsparta said...

In the US and Europe most of them eventually lose their culture. But in the short run the migrants benefit China quite a bit since they will send money back to China. I think Singapore will still be a good destination because here they will be able to learn their language.

All the Chinese migrants in the past years only managed to maintain our percentage of the population about 75%. If there was no Chinese migrants our percentage would probably drop to about 65 percent by now.

PAP may be bad. But Living under PAP is still far better then living under UMNO or PAS.

Anonymous said...

@Lycurgus. Correct, which brings me back to my point. We have been dealing with China well enough, we don't need Durtete to teach us.

LHL's comments on the South China Sea is no big deal. Not as long as we continue to do business with the Chinese. In fact just last year Singapore allowed Chinese visitors to get faster clearance at our customs provided they have special clearance. We have, and will continue to work with China.

But it is not wise for LHL to come out and say the US or Hague court ruling is wrong and need not be followed. He is not Durtete. We don't have a drug problem. We are not the Pinoys who have been forced to patrol the seas together with the US Navy. The US is a declining force, but it is not a failed power yet. There is much to be gained from maintaining a level of friendship with them. Above all, we Chinese know how to maximize our benefits. Nobody burns the bridge immediately without knowing what is going to happen.

My last comment on this topic. Nothing more to say.

With Duterte throwing the Hague ruling into the dustbin, the western media has started to change tack, at least Agencies has started to call the Hague Tribunal as the Hague Tribunal, not UN backed or UN tribunal as before.

Any media or govt leaders still insisting on calling the kangaroo court as UN backed tribunal is mischievous and has an anti China agenda. It is NOT UN backed and neither was it a UN organisation. Now why would western media and some govt leaders insisted on calling this kangaroo court a UN backed tribunal, the answer is obvious. Lying for a bad motive and agenda.

The direction our leaders take us, if up to me, would be that we continue to benefit from good relationship with both powers.

So far nothing too drastic has happened to change that. But read into it what you will.

Staying neutral would keep
Sinkies with less challenges.

Taking side with warring faction
means one has to be with the Winning Side.
As it is, there is no clear winner in battle or in justice.
The US is a belligerent nation
through most part of its existence and there is no doubt
that it is all way out to control
the World, it wants hegemony.
China shall be the US Primary Target as it is not only large and with the Largest Population,
China is currently the Two Nations with Russia to challenge
the Ambition of the US.

US is all way out to destroy China just liked what the British intended whence it tried to poison the Chinese with Opium.

Will the US succeed?
My personal deduction is; the US Shall not last long.
The US will have to deal with the unhappy Americans in the Coming years and be mired with strifes within.
Americans shall be living in discontent and on tenterhooks unless they rein in their warmongering leaders.

Correct. LHL has also began diplomatic visit to Russia, to that end.

One must be flexible and plan ahead.

My apology;

A single head non-venomous snake will scare off many.

'is' in my above post
is redundant.

Anonymous 1024,
Lhl could do well to say what duterte said repeatedly when asked bout this issue. He simply said, lets respect the 1975 agreement between china and Philippines to negotiate by peaceful methods. And the whole issue die off, even the Americans shut up. Why our top paid leader cannot think the right thing to say on winwin basis? Duterte salary is only maybe 0.5% of Lhl, but his diplomatic answer to tough question, is worth 5000% more than our leaders rough comments. Now we hv to save face ask tommy koh great respected thinker to do damage control while the boss lie low. How shameful.
