I do not tempt fate but can you vote for me?

Making a song and dance of Singapore's press freedom in an American university must be embarrassing [Link] but to advertise Singapore as "prized trophy target for terrorists" is downright irresponsible.

On Prime Page 3 of Sunday Times of October 31 2010, Chua Hian Hou reported, 'DPM Wong passes on the baton' - His successor, Law Minister and Second Minister for Home Affairs K. Shanmugum paid a glowing tribute to him.

Mr Wong, he said, was a mentor whom he had known for more than 20 years and whom he greatly respect and admired. He "met every challenge with a realistic and workable solution. He never shied away from making tough, at times unpopular, decisions".

Singapore boasts one of the lowest drug abuse rates in the world, and its streets are "now safer than they ever have been", said Mr Shanmugum.

And despite its status as a "prized trophy target for terrorists", Singapore has yet to be hit by such an attack, he added.'

The bragging of some politicians in Singapore knows no bounds. Who gives Singapore the status of "prized trophy target for terrorists"? In praising one's predecessor there is no need to talk so big and loud. No need to invite trouble. No need to tempt fate.

Why highlight Singapore as a "prized trophy target for terrorists"?

Was New York of 9/11 a "prized trophy target"?

Did Bali (12/10/02), London (7/7/05) or Mumbai (26/11/08) enjoy the status of "prized trophy targets" too?

I cannot understand who in his right mind would want to remind those who wish us harm that "Singapore is yet to be hit''. Why antagonize them with such a boast? Such a challenge?

We all know of "staring incidents". Such challenges lead to unnecessary fights, bloodshed and deaths. Why act tough and start a "staring incident" of the "terrorists kind"?

The shock, the awe and the pain of a "terrorists attack" will make the gang attacks in Downtown East and Bukit Panjang look like child's play. Heaven forbids!

Saying that Singapore is a "prized trophy target for terrorists" that has yet to be hit is worse than screaming that we belong to the gang of "396", "Pak Hai Tong" or "Fong Hong San".

If they can lock up people for wearing cute "Kangaroo T-Shirts", should they also haul up the irresponsible bigmouth for attracting, inviting and inciting violence?

"Singaporeboasts one of the lowest drug abuse rates in the world, and its streets are "now safer than they ever have been", said Mr Shanmugum". Unquote.

Tell that to HDB Dwellers, 369(Triad) 999 members(Police) and visitors to Geylang(Mafia Viceland).

Parliamentarians in Sin not only talk big(boast), they do not know what's happening in their kingdom because they are enjoying in their IVORY TOWERS AND ARE PTOTECTED BY BODYGUARDS WHEN THEY TRAVEL OUT OF THEIR TOWERS.

Oh! Correction, even their ivory towers are secured.

Time to vote Mr Fish even if he is old, poor and not talented. My apology Mr Fish; what i meant is that talented elites with empty talks and boasts are less preferable than practical humble folks.

Yes, no need to brag so much about being a prized trophy for terrorist. When we really do get hit, I hope they will not come up with the excuse of being caught by surprise again.

We used to brag and denigrate our neighbours up north about their country being crime infested, but we now have gangs trying to chop each other up. Who is having the last laugh now? I am waiting for Dr Mahathir to give us a piece of his mind. We deserved that.

Why are we tempting terrorist with such irrelevant boasts? Someone may really take up the challenge. It really is uncalled for. There are many ways to polish an apple.

I will not be surprised if Shanmugam's bragging to the world is interpreted as a personal invitation to make the MIWs "the prized trophy target for terrorists"...

if this is the case, then it is only prudent to avoid hanging around MIWs. LOL
