Can Singaporeans trust the PAP government when it conceals information from the people?

2 years ago, I posted “63 new paper generals since 2007, but is there a need?“.  The information came from MINDEF’s previous website.

I enclosed hyperlinks for the individual year colonels were promoted to generals (below, year and number of generals).

2016 – 6
2015 – 8
2014 – 7
2013 – 7
2012 – 4
2011 – 7
2010 – 6
2009 – 5
2008 – 6
2007 – 7

Today, not only have all the hyperlinks have been rendered useless by a revamped website, the online publications have also been deleted by MINDEF.

It appears that the government may have been embarrassed by the disclosure of an extremely high number of highest-paid generals for a population of 5.7 million.

Besides concealing the embarrassingly high number of generals, even their high-ranking remuneration is not disclosed.

But why should this be when countries like the US and Israel do not conceal the pay of their top brass?  Are our generals grossly overpaid?

It’s about time elected opposition MPs raise their suspicion in Parliament.

PAP wants trust from Singaporeans but how could this ever happen when the government does not trust the people by concealing public information?

  • I've won right to be a General:

    2 years ago, I posted “63 new paper generals since 2007, but is there a need?“. The information came from MINDEF’s previous website.

    They’ve have won the right to be promoted to Generals, or Police Chiefs. It’s an automatic promotion. The criteria? Yes, based on their past exam grades. They are SAF or SPF scholars.

    In PAP Singapore, you will be promoted to Generals or Ministers or GLC honchos or Civil Service heads if you are a top scholar. Curiously, none of them make it when they leave for the competitive private sector, or even a non-competitive monopoly. There have been ample examples.

    These soldier Generals and police Chiefs are not even soldiers or policemen by vocation. If it is not for the scholarship, and the automated easy promotion and out-of-this-world Singapore Civil Servant pay that comes along with it, none of them would have become soldiers or policemen, unlike their counterparts elsewhere who are there for their passion.

    How will these paper Generals fare when they are put to the test?

    If the Little India riot is any guide, the closest they have been put to some sort of real test, you can judge for yourselves how they performed. The big chief General didn’t even realize that the troops under his watch were ‘understaffed’, and under-trained and unprepared. In other words, everyone was incompetent.

    And the paper-General commanders on the ground? They turned up ridiculously and incredulously in civvies! Afraid to show their authority and afraid to be recognized by some spontaneous unprepared and unarmed-with-lethal-weapon rioters and remained a safe distance away from the action ground zero.

    You could see from the videos, there were probably not more than a few dozen rioters who were actually doing the pebble or beer bottle throwing and overturning the police vehicles. You could also see they retreated each time after they hurled the objects or overturned the police cars, not some fearless and rock throwing intifada willing martyrs.

    If Singapore is faced with any imminent life threatening fire-power hostilities, these millionaire paper Generals would likely take the first flight out to the paradise where they parked their wealth.

    How do you think their Israeli or US military counterparts will rate these scholars? How many of these scholar Generals or scholar Police chiefs would be able to make it to the top ranks there? Would they even make it to the ranks of Corporals or Sergeants? I have watched videos where even privates elsewhere impressed more than our Generals or Colonels when they carry out their duties.

    You can watch how unprofessional (and immature) some scholar Colonels conduct themselves in this video (again, when they are put to the test):

    This G really has a lot of things keeping away from the people. What a shame!

    Now they have moved from ownself check ownself to ownself hiding ownself. How great can they win a war like this? Generals hiding in bullet-proof bunkers, soldiers go fighting?

    As some would explain, it’s State Secret ! That is comical but understandable if one agree that our Paper Generals were never battle tested and lack certain confidence.

    My good friend during NSF days (who has migrated to USA God bless him)told me once something I will never forget.

    He said to me ‘governments come and go – but you are not their cannon fodder. Don’t throw your life away for a bunch of lying politicians.”

    I hope the NSF and NSR of today follow this rule. Do you want to die for a bunch of liars who will let you die for their lifestyles?

    HISSING RATTLE SNAKES FLOATED THE GST TEST BALLOONS outside the House of the World’s Most Expensive but Mostly Useless Decorations before budget 2018 and then REPEAT the same inside that political zoo only to suddenly SHUT IT TOWN violently like a broken orchestra performance.

    Rattle snakes then attack any dissenters around inside and outside henceforth demanding apologies.

    How more sad and obvious is this hypocritical virginity of highly experienced prostitute behaviors?

    rukidding: Exactly like Pimps and prostitutes behaviour indeed !

    How to trust them like that?

  • pap selected INDIAN president:

    It appears that the government may have been embarrassed by the disclosure of an extremely high number of highest-paid generals for a population of 5.7 million.

    population of local born is 3.3m. the remaining 2.5m of mouths are economic parasites feeding on the blood sweat tears of cheap labour NSF NSR.

    yesterday saw a mobilization on local tv. we cannot remember whether we were paid in years past for being mobilized on a Saturday. anyway it didn’t cross our minds then since we were truly a decent small island nation without open legs policy and so we didn’t mind being unpaid for a Saturday mobilization.

    fast forward to Mar 2018. ffff. with almost 50% mouths on the small island nation being aliens FTs PRs and local born males not given fair deal we were shaking our heads at the unnecessary inconvenience to our local born males, and if the mobilization was UNPAID, then all the more WTF.

    70% sheep by being stupid not only harms themselves but also their own local born young. remember. scholarships and jobs for aliens FTs PRs. local born males only for NSF NSR. 70% sheep truly WTF stupid.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    pap clown is a ffffing hypocrite when it comes to family kinship. but he does speak the truth when he says he prefers billionaires. even though it seems not all billionaires are even welcome in their own land of birth. WTF.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
