You need to see it in the right light: they became singaporeans because the system asked them to be if they want to play for Singapore. If they could have played for Singapore without becoming Singaporean, then you guys wouldn't be whining here, isn't it? Can't blame them but you need to blame the system........
I do sense a differential attitude here: would you say the same thing if a (person born in) Singaporean decides to migrate? And you know very well there are lots of them!
Our parents, grandparents or great grandparents were foreign talents just like them. The difference is that they were the first wave of migrants after colonialism, and we're looking at the next wave of migrants.
I don't know about you, but there are those in my deceased grandfather's generation that talked about going back to China when they grew old/passed away, makes me wonder if they've always regarded China as their true home?
Similarly, we are born here thus we consider Singapore "our" country.
Even among native Singaporeans there are those that want to migrate. Are they less loyal?
I think not all the Gurkha here will fight with us. They got more important things to do then that. Like protecting the Big Bosses here & get them out savely whenever possible in the time of chaos (I think).:think:
I know a china collegue (lady) who came here for a few months of attachment due to project needed her professionalism. She complained the food here sucks & the price is 5 times higher then what she get back home.
She starts to bring lunch & dinner boxes here to work after a few days of work here. Maybe, her pay is not that great too.:think:
