From a geopolitical perspective, the biggest problem of Singapore is that it is a first-world country smack in the middle of a bunch of backwards Muslim third-world countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and many others. I don’t care how “offended” you are by this statement, but it is clear as day that the GDP per capita of Singapore dwarfs any of its neighbors. This is easily explained if you believe in the unpopular concept of IQ and its predictive power for personal and national success. Alternatively, you could believe in the “magic dirt” theory, which your typical leftist dipshit does, but if that’s your stance, then you’ll be hard-pressed to explain why Malaysia is doing so much worse than Singapore. In that regard, I would also like to remind you that Singapore used to be part of Malaysia.
If you have neighbors like Singapore, you need to be vigilant. This is the prime reason why Singapore invests heavily in its military. There is national service, which is mandatory for all men. It takes two years. That may sounds like a lot, but it’s not if you keep in mind that it used to be almost three years. Once you are done with that and want to return to a civilian life, you’re part of the reserve — until your 40th or even 50th birthday. There are regular check-ups to make sure that you’re in shape. If you’re not, then there are sanctions. Singapore’s army, to give you just one data point, is larger than Germany’s. Unlike Germany, Singapore also has enough money for ammunition and tanks as well as helicopters that are operational. Long gone are the days of Nazi Germany, that’s for sure.
I accompanied my girlfriend and her family on the enlistment of her brother. Recruits are trained on a separate island, which is only accessible via ferry. On the way, you see one banner after another, stressing the importance of Singapore being able to defend itself and pointing out common sense truths that would get you branded a Nazi in the West, such as that if Singapore can’t defend itself it has no justification to exist, or that nobody else would come to its defence, or that an army is necessary, in the words of Lee Kuan Yew, to prevent others to “just take” what Singaporeans have built. I was just a tourist, but I felt all warm and fuzzy reading this. I almost shed a tear of joy. I am not kidding. I felt genuinely touched by this display of national pride.
It is indeed not implausible that a country like Indonesia may one day decide to invade Singapore. Then again, before they do that, they’d first have to get their act together, and in that regards, Muslims seem to have some difficulties, which I am sure are in absolutely no way related to intelligence or culture because, of course, we are all the same. Singapore just happened to have been built upon an island consisting of magic dirt, right, leftist shitheads?
The closest geopolitical comparison to the situation of Singapore is Israel. Interestingly, the Singaporean government has close ties to that country. I may be wrong, but I think I read that Israeli advisors play a predominant role in Singaporean security circles. It’s easy to see why this would be the case as both countries, in the eyes of their Muslim neighbors, stick out like a sore thumb and are a constant reminder of the (economic) inferiority of Muslim countries. Just as a case in point, you will have little difficulty finding expressions of resentment towards Singapore from Malays online. In any case, should there be a Muslim terrorist attack committed by Malays in Singapore, I expect the backlash to be quite severe. The last time the Indians rioted, it didn’t end so well for them either.
