Re: This election marks the beginning of Singapore’s decline.

I don't know about Australia. But I notice that the US and Western Europe (especially the PIGS) have horrendous government debt.

Re: The PRC used to be so wonderfully friendly.

Calm down. Sertorio! You are right that we out here have no grudge against China but we do have a healthy sense of our own security and a burning desire to ensure our own survival indefinitely into the future. Within the past decade the PRC has demonstrated utter contempt for the rights and interet...

Re: US should diplomatically recognize Taiwan: Bolton

Most countries, including the US - and Australia - have recognized Taiwan as part of China.
