Sanity in Singapore much?
BTW, WTF do you need F-15s for in Singapore?
Singapore’s government is reportedly considering to train its F-15 fighter jet pilots in New Zealand’s Ohakea air base. Why do they need F-15s in the first place? Because, like New Zealanders, they are being blackmailed by the global arms racket.
Singaporeans have been conditioned [brainwashed] to be afraid of annexation by its neighbor, Malaysia. Consequently, they have been made a part of the Five Power Defence Arrangements, a military alliance with Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. They splash nearly 5 percent of their GDP, or about $20 billion, on procuring military hardware. [How’s that for logical nightmare?]
Singapore Air Force has 24 fighter jets (F-15SG Strike Eagle variants, manufactured buy Trump’s favorite company, Boeing), more than half of which are normally grounded due to technical issues, experts said. Their pilots have been training in Australia, France and the U.S. due to severe airspace constraints.
Singapore also has an army and a navy. Over 25 percent of government spending goes to “defence”!
[Let’s hope they don’t send their chopper pilots to train in NZ, unless there are too many of them. See blog content for explanation. Moderator K.]
