    We complained about their naming of the two ships after the 2 marines.

    They are having presidential elections soon. Any concession given to Singapore at this stage will be seen as a sign of weakness and disloyalty to Indonesia. Severely affecting the votes for any aspiring president.

    This outcome of the haze meeting at this point in time, is 100% expected by all.

    VB's annoyance expressed to reporters is just play acting.

    After the elections when new president is installed, they will sort it out.

    Frankly I have zero expectation for Vivian. He can't even catch the mosquitos here.

    With the Indonesians you need a fox like LKY.

    Mosquitoes are not really Vivians problem.. It's really ignorant singaporeans who are at fault.

    But I agree we need a strong character like LKY to deal with the Indonesians.

    Fair. I will gladly deal with mosquitoes, ponding and angry Singaporeans for half his 'stipend' as a minister.

    You referring to the LKY who himself personally scattered flower petals on the graves of executed Indonesian Marine Corps (KorMar), Harun Said and Osman Mohamed Ali in 1973?

    Haze is not about politic but $$. Decision makers are connected to produce haze, how to reduce their income?

    Solving the haze problem is not a concession to anyone, its their RESPONSIBILITY.
