    during NS i always tell my men. Never die for your country ( not that i don't love singapore )
    because i STRONGLY believe the other party should die for their countries.

    National Security is always a Waste of time and money until something happens.

    If there's War we will fight.. being prepared is always better.. but There should be some Quality Control.. which is what they are doing right now. Slowly kicking out the losers whom are sitting riding on the once "iron bowl".

    Now days welfare so good.. I think not many will survive any war anyway.. unless we fight war on PS3 Xbox 360, PSP, maybe got chance

    Say waste of time, not really waste of time, Say not Waste of time I also cannot agree to it.

    Hmm Spending alot of time on Clubsnap can be considered waste of time?

    Have you people forgotten about Kuwait?

    That country thought that with the money spent on raising and running a substantial military can better be spent making the neighbours happy - till one of them decided to kill the golden goose.

    Sure, because of oil, the rest of the world pitched in to help, but not before the country was robbed and raped - and that, you can't undo.

    And compared to Kuwait, Singapore doesn't really have that much that the rest of the world wants.

    Ermm.. that's not quite true. There are people out there who are seriously intent on seeing Spore fail / collapse / destroyed for their own political agenda / gain.

    Consider how much our economy is worth now. Then consider again if Spore somehow ceased to exist, who / where would all this money be likely to go.

    Isn't wealth in the eye of the beholder?

    When the country is at the risk of collapse, the stock will plunge, followed by property,............................ The singapore dollars will become nothing.

    Therefore, security is very important, it helps to build up confidence in the investors.

    This is just my feeling, I am not a economist.

    It is the amount of info you get from Clubsnap makes it a value added site. No money can buy(Maybe too popular and buy over by...)

    The joy, the fun, the negative feedack you receive.. and when somebody said that MM Lee is reading the forum, I think it meant something. so is it a waste of time?

    I hope and wish that MM Lee can comment on the statement...

    Yappy & happy

    Totally not familiar with what you just said...

    Enlist Sept 99, ORD Jan 05 and No i'm not a Rambo... so I guess you're one? My NS training teach me there is no Rambo in SG defence force.. your NS served in Singapore?
    You are not combat trained. You never shoot at a range. You serve 6 years doing NS.. when you need to do only 2.5 years.. what happened to the 3.5 years?

    U are only a Rambo if you are properly trained..

    Please dont feel offended as I think there are people out there who serve more that 2.5years doing NS...!!..AWOL.. in detention barrack... etc

    To ask if NS is necessary is similar to asking if war is necessary.
