With your name in the last thread, I thought people do not want the latest Nikon D800 which is not out yet :blah::sweat::lovegrin:

Ya ! Ya !!

D800 is actually not a good camera.
Please don't buy okay?

Don't follow so many people jammed up the queue.

:)

Greece should just sell a few of its resort islands on 100-200 year leases to meet its debt obligations


I dont remember the blardy World Bank and IMF being so kind to asian countries with an easy bailout in 98'

I still remember Goh Chok Tong's response to Indonesia when they wanted to borrow some $$$ in 1998. Major pwnage for Habibie. :bsmilie:

Former Indonesian President Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie said:
"It's O.K. with me, but there are 211 million people (in Indonesia). All the green (area) is Indonesia. And that red dot is Singapore."
Former Singaporean Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong said:
"Singapore will help Indonesia within the limits of our ability. We are a small economy. Our GDP (US$82 billion) is a mere 1% of the United States GDP (US$8111 billion), and 2% of Japan’s GDP (US$4190 billion). It is only one fifth of Australia’s GDP (US$395 billion). We are not in the same class. After all we are only three million people. Just a little red dot on the map. Where is the capacity to help 211 million people?"

Pause and think carefully - ask yourself. Truthfully....in your heart of hearts... do you believe that the full 100% of the hundreds of billions of Euro that EU gave to Greece will end up benefiting the normal ordinary Greek citizens. The bulk of it may end up somewhere else. And that is basically why these bail outs will not save Greece. Not because the normal ordinary Greek citizens are undeserving.

yeah, and who are on the World Bank? They are just interested in helping their own kind only.
