I'll believe it when I see it

Your two countries might have fewer security concerns if they were not so keen on reshaping the world to their immage, in order to serve their selfish interests... No! Neither Australia nor Singapore are so megalomaniac ambitious as to aspire to reshaping the world to their immage . We both know ou...

Re: Fatty KIm: N Korea no longer needs nukes

Believing Kim Jong Un is like believing Donald trump. You would need to be crazy to do it. It would be nice if we could make a distinction between not liking someone's policies and despising the person. Kim is a dictator, which is the North Koreans' problem. But he isn't crazy and is mostly concern...

Or,
the Chinese want to help their ally by saying that Fatty Kim is not as dangerous as he seems. Anyway, let's hope they are right.

Re: globalising your economy enhances wealth but diminishes national security.

Warmest thanks for reply Cass. Yes, our two country's do have similar security concerns and every reason to collaborate. Your two countries might have fewer security concerns if they were not so keen on reshaping the world to their immage, in order to serve their selfish interests... Yes, those bel...

Re: globalising your economy enhances wealth but diminishes national security.

Singapore and Australia have strong defence ties and share s imilar concerns about security. We have soldiers and warplanes stationed in Australia. . Warmest thanks for reply Cass. Yes, our two country's do have similar security concerns and every reason to collaborate. Back to the question of oil:...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Keep it up, boys! Since my country is a net importer of oil the the US playing its recently acquired role of oil price regulator of last resort like that does us out here no harm. The same for us . Go Trump go. Cassowary; your remark prompted me to do some research. The results shocked me. I have k...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Underestimating your adversaries is the first step towards defeat. Some of you - especially Cass and Milo - seem to think that by repeatedly underestimating Russia this country will effectively get weaker. Russia is indeed a bit too overdependent on natural resources, but it has many customers besi...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Go Trump go. Deregulate the oil industry more and release more federal land for oil exploration. Lousy OPEC and Russians - they are always trying to manipulate the oil price so that we have to pay more. It serves them right. The more they cut production, the more oil the US will sell. Good. I hope ...

Re: What (just) happened?

Until there's a conviction or an end to the investigation, neither side is "winning" or "losing". It's not tennis. Personally I am more worried about the Milo-industrial complex ;-p However there is such a huge wave of bad news for Hillary and the Democrats, once it comes ashore, I don't ever seein...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

It doesn't matter if they're fed up, they have nothing else to sell. So very true, Milo. As for the USA; because of the higher average costs involved, I would guess that the US could only afford to export it's surplus oil in bulk whenever the global oil price rises above a certain level to permit p...
