SAF TO TRAIN IN NZ, GO TAIWAN MAYBE MORE TERREX WILL BE TAKEN

Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said yesterday that Singapore will explore more training opportunities for SAF in New Zealand. He also said that this was an opportunity to strengthen relationships with like-minded countries like NZ, due to uncertain times now. Was this just a smokescreen, and a silent agreement that Singapore need to look for other training places away from Taiwan after what happened to our Terrexes? Have we finally admitted defeat in this saga? Of course, they won't say it out loud, but the timing of the agreement with NZ seems mighty suspicious. Really like admitting we lost in the Terrex issue, and now it's time to find training places away from places where China say we can't be there.

So REALLY, send your kids here to study.

WHY WASTE TAXPAYERS MONEY TO TRAIN UNWILLING NZ TEEN FOR NATIONAL SERVICE?

For a male Singaporean, the PAP government will only allow you to renounce citizenship either when you are below 12 years old OR above 21 years old. Thus, most males are trapped in order to be conscripted. This rule has been in place since 1970s but most still don’t know about it. Frankly, Brandon only lived in Singapore when he was a baby and during pre-school years. He is now more Kiwi than Singaporean given that he has lived his entire school years and teenage years in New Zealand. Why waste taxpayer monies to train and house him in Singapore?
