t Double Yellow's Musings: Singapore in International Affairs
The warped mind of Double Yellow craves for humor everyday. His daily dose comes from The Straits Times, The Sunday Times, Today, Channelnewsasia, etc. He also thinks that because of this preamble, this blog will never get featured in the local media.

Singapore in International Affairs

Singapore is a major player in international affairs – at least that is what the local media would like you to believe. If a country has more clout than any other nation in international politics, it has to be our very own Singapore. That is why Japan (the country with the second largest economy in the world and the country which contributes most to the UN budget after the United States) looks to Singapore for assistance when it wants a permanent seat in the UN Security Council. Dude, we should be proud….

Not very surprisingly, Singapore’s influence does not seem to go the distance. But our darling media had this to say – “Despite S'pore's backing, Japan's Security Council bid faces hurdles”. Can you believe that? How dare any country in the world oppose a choice made by Singapore? Our gahmen must be outraged that despite their support of Japan, there are obstacles along the way. How can? Patriotic Singaporeans should petition for an International Security Act (ISA) on the world stage. Any such defamation of Singapore will automatically result in the bankruptcy of the offending country.

Our local media seems to have won a lot of awards. How about one for ‘talking cock’?
