if come to sg, got jailed for 2 years first or loose 10k.. after that spend another 2 years in ns.. then they drop their sg citizenships.. and leave again for norway..
spend 4 years in total just to drop their citizenships.. got logic mehh? wth the use of their ns in sg
there are people who choose not to use their brain
and instead diie-die worshiping the thing called law
wasn't (and maybe "isn't) our defence policy based on the Israeli system/methodology where the whole country rallies behind the nation in times of crisis? at least that's what I get with the Israelis I encounter on an almost daily basis.
I mentioned Total Defence to them and they laughed out loud (rather literally) at me. mind you these were the veterans of the Yom Kippur War... so their perspective might be a bit different.

'Only persons who have emigrated at a very young age together with their families, and who have not enjoyed the privileges of Singapore citizenship, will be allowed to renounce their Singapore citizenships without serving national service.'
so what's the age limit then? mindef don't seems to provide more info.
how about those baby bonuses? i'm sure many more will be affected.
