Tharman is not the man for SG PM.

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/dpm-tharman-on-yahoo-survey-im-not-the-man-for-130150277.html

As predicted in our earlier post, Tharman has declared himself not the man for SG PM.  However, he's up for another post that the current PM is seeking to change.

US is losing support in ASEAN!

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/duterte-says-upcoming-philippines-war-games-us-last-143145972--business.html

Philippines is breaking up with USA because USA had played a fool out of Philippines over the PCA ruling on South China Sea which was an illegal ruling.  Furthermore, USA had refused to reimburse Philippines for PCA legal cost which amounted to USD$30m.  USA also interfered in Philippines' internal affairs which angered Duterte.

Is Tharman likely to be the next SG PM?

https://sg.news.yahoo.com/most-singaporeans-would-choose-tharman-1523976433713206.html

Politically, Tharman is unlikely to be the next SG PM.  Why? Well, this is because SG survival is highly dependent on its role to be the facilitator between the east and west.  If Tharman is the next PM, SG will lose its close fraternity with China as China will view SG differently.  China will view SG without a Chinese root and won't give preferential treatment to SG.  LHL has also indicated that the next PM must be able to speak Mandarin and Tharman is not able to do that.  Without a Chinese root, SG survival is going to be tougher in a more challenging environment.

LHL has been trying to change the presidential requirements for some hidden agenda.  Time will reveal the truth in the future.

What else did DBS do wrong?

Why did DBS say Yuan (RMB) was the big China risk?  Well, DBS speculated in Yuan and was suspended for such activity in China.

http://www.straitstimes.com/business/banking/china-suspends-yuan-trading-by-dbs-stanchart

DBS was one of the culprits that dabbled in yuan speculation and got punished by China but trying to get back on China by talking about yuan depreciation would only irk China more.

DBS failed to see warning signs for Swiber before default and claimed that it imploded suddenly.

DBS claimed no sign of distress for Swiber and extended more loan to Swiber.  How true is this claim?

However, Kim Eng and S&P stated red flags were there for some time prior to the default.

Will breaking the law in good faith exonerate your guilt?

http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/kong-hee-had-used-city-harvest-churchs-funds-good-faith-lawyer-says

Laws are not meant to be broken whether in good or bad faith. Breaking the law in good faith will not exonerate your guilt. If someone robs the rich to give it to the poor, he is also robbing in good faith and doesn't seek any personal gain for himself but that doesn't mean he is not guilty under the law.
The lawyers are damn stupid to argue in this way.

USA and Japan are still looking to stir up troubles in South China Sea.

USA and Japan (non-claimants) are still looking to stir up troubles in South China Sea when claimants have agreed to handle their differences with China bilaterally.
There has not been a single instance in South China Sea where there is no freedom of navigation by commercial ships. Asean knows what the USA & Japan are up to and will not follow them.

Duterte has put actions into his words!

Russia supports China overtly to reject PCA ruling!

https://sputniknews.com/world/20160905/1044988523/russia-china-putin.html

Russia has declared its position on South China Sea and supported China to reject PCA ruling.  Furthermore, it is asking non-claimants to stay out of South China Sea especially USA.



Russia will be involving in South China Sea which will restraint USA's influence.

ASEAN will be disintegrated once its members allow USA to meddle in South China Sea.

Countries that overtly support China: Russia & Thailand (latest update)

Countries that overtly support USA: None so far. (Duterte even called Obama son of whore)

When any Asean country overly supports USA, Asean will fall apart.  For eg, if SG supports USA overtly, China will use Malaysia to punish SG.  If Vietnam supports USA overtly, China will use Cambodia & Loas to punish Vietnam because Vietnam invaded its neighbouring countries in the past.  If Indonesia supports USA openly, China will use Malaysia & Brunei to punish Indonesia (muslims against muslims).

How can Asean be united like before when 2 super power countries use Asean to fight against each other for their own political causes and interests?

USA will definitely lose out in South China Sea because ASEAN wants to maintain peace, stability and unitedness but USA will still have a consolation price by selling its weapons to ASEAN when it creates chaos in South China Sea.

Australia declares that PCA has no jurisdiction!

http://www.thestar.com.my/news/regional/2016/08/30/e-timor-urges-court-to-end-sea-border-row-with-australia/

Australia has declared PCA has no jurisdiction for its own case with East Timor but it wants China to respect and adhere to PCA's ruling on South China Sea. This is what happens when we allow a private organisation like PCA to rule on international matters. This will subject international laws to be interpreted differently. We must uphold a common set of interpretations for international laws.

Obama's daft comments on China!

Obama has disgraced and deceived himself and the world with such a blatant daft speech.
What's wrong with the speech?
Who is the one flexing muscles in south china sea with 2 aircraft carriers and several destroyers? USA!
Yes, China is signatory to the UN convention on the law of the sea but USA is not. Why is USA using a law which itself doesn't recognise?
UN convention on the law of the sea must not be subjected to different interpretations by different parties. There is only 1 international court and it is ICJ. PCA is just a private organisation without legal authority to rule on international matters. If you look at PCA's website, you cannot find anything on it to substantiate its legality as a court as to who and what empower PCA to be an international court. Furthermore, it states clearly on its website that it is not a court in traditional sense but a framework.
PCA is a private organisation that doesn't recognise historical claim but ICJ which is backed by UN recognises historical claim as it is a backbone of all sovereignties. Without historical claims, many nations wouldn't exist today including USA.
Terra Nullius was a historical claim used by SG in Pedra Branca case against Malaysia in ICJ and ICJ awarded Pedra Branca based on that. Please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedra_Branca_dispute for more information.
If the world accepts PCA's ruling, it is empowering a private organisation to rule on international matters and also subjecting international laws to different interpretations. Where will UN and ICJ stand if a private organisation can rule on international matters?
The world must uphold the integrity of international laws and there must be a common interpretation but not different interpretations. Therefore, we cannot allow a private organisation to rule on international matters.
