Any child born in Singapore with an American parent and a Singaporean parent is automatically accorded "by birth" citizenship in both countries. Unlike most other countries where the other country naturalizes the Singaporean born child. The US accords 'by birth" status as well. Therefore it does pose some slightly different problems which obviously you are clueless about.
No inferiority complex here - in fact your comments mostly confirm my post.
I doubt the accuracy of the part where you say the other countries naturalise the child. If a child is born in Singapore to a Singaporean mother, I don't think any country can (automatically) revoke that child's Singaporean citizenship.
In fact the only difference is that the US automatically grants additional citizenship to the child with one US parent whereas other nationalities must apply first. But in all cases, the child is a Singaporean citizen unless action is taken by the parents.
The only cluelessness here is the OP with (paraphrased) I am an American therefore the laws of another country do not matter
[note this is not about Americans in general, just the perceived attitude of the OP]
