My main concern is the terrorist organizations is making use of the opportunity to train their mindless minions fighting against the US. Some young naive muslims from US and Europe are already joining their muslim brothers to fight against the western power of aggression. With those skills and exper...

There is going to be more social issues that are covered up. I do not know about you, but when my Jap wife said she is afraid to go to singapore because of the drug-death issue, I said to her I am more afraid of speaking or blogging against the Chinese govt online.

Even if they cannot find out, they should have the courtesy to cooperate with you n the police. Here is why. 1. Unless I am ignorant in Sing...

I hope this topic is still open............ I think you r worrying too much. As long as you and your family travel to singapore with British passport, you are safe (even if your kids have 2 or 3 passports).

I thought singapore has a min limit to how much you must buy in the stock market, just like in Japan?

(expensive) Well, MoTokyo is both right and...
