PRC MAN ARRESTED BY POLICE FOR ILLEGAL TERREX PROTEST @ RAFFLES PLACE

Social activist Gilbert Goh shared a video of the Singapore Police arresting a man who was conducting an illegal protest in the heart of Raffles Place. The man who sounded like a foreigner spoke with a PRC accent and called for the resignation of Lee Hsien Loong over the terrex controversy.

HK CUSTOMS TO CHARGE COMPANY TASKED WITH BRINGING TERREX HOME WITH CRIMINAL CHARGES

HK Customs confirmed that the transportation was done without a required licence, and they would be charging the company, APL under criminal charges for a suspected breach of the law.

Not sure how our MINDEF is going to answer this. No doubt the company is not under MINDEF's purview, but they were obviously hired to transport the Terrex back to Singapore. Surely proper licensing had to be done. After all, they were carrying our nation's asset. How could MINDEF let this lapse occur?

VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN CRITICISE SUPERPOWER, ANOTHER TERREX SAGA COMING OUR WAY?

He was obviously referring to China. He even said that no one can control the agenda of the superpower. He is very right in that count. No one can control China, least of all a Minister well known in Singapore for not being able to control the Youth Olympic budget. Now he target China in his speech, although in the capacity of an ASEAN Ministerial meeting.

The last time a Singapore Minister, Prime Minister no less, said something challenging China's authority, our Terrexes were impounded. Big mouth Minister Vivian had opened his mouth, what next will be impounded now.

DID S'POREANS RALLY TOGETHER TO SUPPORT MINDEF BREAKING OF HONG KONG LAWS?

Now that our Terrex ICVs have been returned on 30 January, Defence Minister Ng is not letting up on propaganda and has claimed in a Facebook post: “I am proud of how Singaporeans rallied together during this episode. Thank you for your support and encouragement.” As if still living in the pre-internet age, Ng has chosen to ignore all the negative comments on social media. Who supported Mindef’s screw up? Are Singaporeans so stupid to anyhow assume it’s OK to break Hong Kong laws?

TERREX RETURNED BUT IS SINGAPORE'S NATIONAL SECURITY ALREADY COMPROMISED?

What our millionaire ministers fail to address is whether our terrex and "other equipment" have been compromised by PRC military scientists after they were moved indoors, without public scrutiny. What exactly was the "other equipment" detained by the Chinese? Was it sensitive communications equipment which the SAF integrates into the terrex for field communications with other branches of our military?

HONG KONG TO RELEASE S'PORE TERREX & BLAMES LICENSING ISSUES, NO DATE FOR RELEASE GIVEN

After being held hostage for 2 months, the 9 SAF Terrex armoured vehicles will be returned to Singapore after investigations were completed by Hong Kong customs. Singapore's MFA said that the military vehicles and other equipment will be shipped to Singapore through APL, the shipper who screwed up the paperwork in November and led to licensing issues.

SAF FAILURE TO PROTECT TERREX IS JUST ANOTHER SCREW UP BY OUR PAPER GENERALS

the SAF professes the following 8 core values: Loyalty to country; Leadership; Discipline; Professionalism; Ethics; Fighting spirit; Care for soldiers. "Safety" was only added to the list in 2013. Are these ethos really true or merely words inscribed by academic scholars (with no war experience)? Let's take a quick look at the top 5 SNAFUs (screw-ups) that happened in the SAF, under the leadership of their overpaid paper-Colonels and paper-Generals.

YES CHINA IS BULLYING SPORE, BUT HASN'T SPORE BEEN AUTHORITARIAN TO HER CITIZENS TOO?

I don't agree with a foreign power setting terms for my country, flexing its muscles to browbeat us into submission. I don't think Singapore should become subservient to China just because they are bigger than us. I don't think we should accede to conditions imposed by China – if indeed any conditions have been imposed – just to get the nine Terrex ICVs back more quickly.

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.
