Singapore stock calls for 29 August 2016.


Why is the world willing to move on after Nazi but not Japanese occupation?

The reason is simple. The Germans apologized with utmost sincerity for the atrocities committed by the Nazis. When you visit any museum that displays Nazi's history and crimes, you can see a true account of the past. The Germans do not whitewash their acrimonious past.
For Japan, the Japanese tried to whitewash their unglamorous past starting with their school textbooks and also protested against the Unesco Nanjing Massacre listing. Why? This makes it hard for Japan to deny the Nanjing Massacre when it is listed under the Unesco.
Not only does Japan government whitewash its history, it also worships the war criminals in the yasukuni shrine. This is akin to extolling their ruthless actions during WW2 especially when the government officials visit the shrine on an annual basis.
The world will never forgive Japan and move on because of insincere apology. The world cannot reconcile Japan's insincere verbal apology with regular yasukuni shrine visits and history whitewashes.

USA has lost its power of influence in Middle East.

USA couldn't decide unilaterally in Middle East anymore without involving Russia compared to the past.  No more hegemonic status!

TPP won't be approved this year.

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/tpp-deal-won-t-get-senate/3075360.html

TPP won't be approved this year and the new incumbent president also won't approve it either.  Both presidential candidates stated very clearly in their propagandas that they won't approve TPP because TPP was detrimental to USA economy.

Any changes to TPP will have to be re-negotiated with Asia countries and this is very time-consuming.  Therefore, TPP has virtually no success rate in the future.

Singapore's economy will falter soon!

As Singapore gets more and more supportive of USA's stance on South China Sea, China will block and tackle SG.  The Krai canal construction seems to have started insidiously as reported by China's news media.  This has been China's strategic move to counter USA's power in Straits of Malacca.

China has upgraded its destroyer for South China Sea.

In view of further aggressive stance in South China Sea from USA, China has upgraded its destroyer with more lethal and advanced weapons. The 32-cell launch pad can contain 64 missiles in total.

China and Russia will be conducting naval exercise in South China Sea in September 2016.

China and Russia will be conducting a drill in South China Sea this September. This is to show the world that China and Russia are standing together on the South China Sea issue. Any country which is creating trouble in South China Sea will have to deal with 2 powerful nations, not just China per se.

HOUSTON (AP) — The number of rigs exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. increased by 10 this week to 491.  A year ago, 885 rigs were active.

Political powers are shifting around the globe now!


USA tries to interfere in South China Sea that angers China.  Therefore, China is interfering in Middle East to get back at the USA.  China will be supporting Syria in the Middle East with military training and aids.  This is an excellent strategic move because Syria is an oil producing nation and China can import oil from Syria in RMB, not in USD.

With Russia and China support, Syria is pounding US-backed Kurdish troops by bombing them.

https://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/syria-regime-pounds-kurdish-positions-second-day-170632363.html

We can see that Russia and China have formed a strategic alliance against the USA in South China Sea and Middle East.

For the first time in history, Iran has allowed Russia to use its airbase to bomb IS in Syria.  This is a political changing event which angers the USA.  Iran is overtly expressing its support for Russia involvement which will greatly reduce USA influence.

Russia is also pressuring Turkey for access to its airbase to bomb IS in Syria and the primary motive is to create ramification in NATO since Turkey is one of NATO members.  With burgeoning supports from Iran, Syria, Turkey and China, Russia will become a major decision maker in Middle East.

China warns Singapore not to interfere in South China Sea.

China has warned Singapore not to interfere in South China Sea after PM Lee's remarks in USA. SG better listens or China will whip SG's economy. SG has been a USA supporter without much economic benefit. Latest economic statistics showed that sales to USA slid 19% and sales to China slid 17%.

Singapore stock calls for 5 August 2016


Economic crisis is developing in South Korea.

An economic crisis is developing in South Korea because of the establishment of THAAD system.

China has started to whip South Korea for being a bad neighbour because it is threatening China's national security with THAAD.

China starts with anti-dumping tariff for steel imports from South Korean and has moved on to ban Korean TV contents and talents.  South Korea's economy is heavily dependent on 10 conglomerates such as Samsung, LG, Hyundai, etc.  Therefore, China will start to attack these 10 conglomerates so that South Korea will back down on THAAD. 



China has started to aim its missiles at THAAD site in South Korea for self-preservation purpose.  Is THAAD really a safety measure for South Korea or THAAD a danger?

THAAD is used for protection against high altitude missiles but North Korea has mostly low altitude missiles and low flying rockets.  THAAD cannot be used for those low flying missiles and rockets such as scuds.  Therefore, only patriot missiles can protect South Korean against low flying missiles, rockets and artillaries.


It is estimated that North Korea has more than 10,000 mobile rocket launchers and these will be used to attack South Korea during the war.  Therefore, South Korea's main threat is these 10,000 mobile rocket launchers which the THAAD system cannot detect and destroy.  Many analysts know this and know that the true purpose of THAAD is to suppress China & Russia's ICBMs.
