Wave of refugees from Afghanistan

There is a large wave of Afghan people who wanted to leave Afghanistan for other countries.

The media portrayed this exodus as fear and distrust of the Taliban that has taken control of Afghanistan.

This probably has some truth.

However, we must not overlook another reason.

Afghanistan is a poor country. It will take many years for the country to develop its economy and society to give a better life for its people.

Many Afghans will grap the opportunity to move to a developed country where they can have a better standard of living.

The withdrawal of the US forces and the mayhem that followed the change of government provides this opportunity for the better educated Afghans to migrate to a developed country.

It is understandable that many of them will want to grab this opportunity.

Those who do not have the opportunity will have to remain in Afghanistan. It does not mean that they will have a bad future.

It may take a longer time, but there is hope that the living conditions will improve under the new government.

    don’t be a cock.

    these people measure wisdom by length of beard. they can’t even fix a toothache. and very tribal.

    it is better to leave them alone. they can’t assimilate. it shall be a mistake to even entertain the idea.

    we think all countries ending with a “stan” are similar.

    we dealt with Pakistanis. every other word has their god involved. yet you can tell they are very cruel and lie and cheat. worse of all, they even lack basic HUMAN compassion for their own kind. if you stay in their land long enough you shall notice they are all things bad, as far as human decency goes.

    and one blatant thing they confess is NO alcohol. yet, everyone of them is a drunkard. they take pride in how large a stockpile of alcohol they have in their houses.

    the best thing to do is to leave them alone. these “stan” countries exist for their own reasons which is basically to make each other miserable. it is in their blood to do so. leave them alone.

  • Naive Tan:

    Mr. Tan is still very naive. You try to give excuse to cover yourself for your earlier foolish article.

    Go find our how a folk songs singer was killed for unknown reason.

    Go find out what the human rights lady said Taliban has never change in 20 years.

    No doubt, everyone is looking for a better life economically elsewhere, but death is their top priority to run road.

    Hello TKL,
    First you lick gangster Cheena Tua Kee and now you lick gangster Taliban Tua Kee.

    Seriously you should ask your gangster Cheena Tua Kee to import all the Afghan refugees into Cheena XJ and give them jobs, house and what not.

    Readers beware. There are foreign sponsor (U$A & Cheena) Opposition supporters in our midst. They are trying to do Singapore in which our great founder Mr LKY had warned.

    In $in country( some call City),many sgs also suffer,albeit in different manner from Afghans,under our own taLEEEband.

    Many sgs are openly being DISADVANTAGED.
    They are robbed of their decent jobs vi a stupid FT POLICY that has been ruthlessly and most carelessly implemented to the grave disadvantage of sgs themselves?

    In which other sovereign,citizens get much less than NON-CITIZENS from a COVID RESILIENCE PACKAGE Funded by sgs’ hard-earned RESERVES?

    NO ONE CARES?
    NOT EVEN THE EP WHO ASSIGNED THE PERMISSION TO RAID OUR SGS’ RESERVES?

    THIS IS OUR COUNTRY,THIS IS OUR HOME?
    SURE OR NOT?
    LIP SERVICE IS WHAT sgs get from bird-talking gahmen all the way up to the Pee-M.

  • Advanced Weapons vs Halfguns:

    What stunned the whole world is how on earth people riding on bikes and donkeys can seize the capital of Afghan with mere Halfguns.

    God is Great! He can replace corrupt sovereigns with new ones without mass killing. Kabul was captured alive! with such haste and ease…

    Whither do the Advanced Artillery, Armoured Vehicles and Drones.

    It has been prophecised, come endtime, war will be waged with sword, bow-and-arrow.
    Distorted Earth magnetics will fail all electronic and digital devices.

  • Feared Afghan warriors:

    Do people know that these Afghans fought against armies from more than 40 countries?

    They even won the war!

    Even Hitler did not have to face so many countries.

    There’s a middle eastern stall at Beauty world hawker center selling weird food. Run by rude toads.

    Quite tired of foreifners who don’t assimilate in their host countries and expect the host citizens to adapt to them.

  • Mailahuh:

    Remember one of the ex-PMs of one of our big bullying neighbours who helmed the country twice ever said that his country was prepared to adopt Afghan orphans displaced by the Soviets invasion in the 1980s.

    The offer was flatly rejected though it was, at that time, very difficult for the humanitarian bodies in Afghanistan to cope as the number of orphans was huge.

    No definite reasons were offered by the ex-PM.

    But subtle hints given were that the Afghan deemed the country giving the offer was not compatible in quality with that of the Afghan.

    Yes, they have many many very very advanced, rich, sympathetic and very kind people to take care of them.

    Tan golden chain need not worry for them Dah!

    these people measure wisdom by length of beard. they can’t even fix a toothache. and very tribal.

    At least measuring wisdom by length of beard does not create PM2.5 cancerous smoke.

    Some sectors of own citizens had the gall to burn and burn and then shout huat huat huat. They said the more you burn (plane, iphone, ipad) the more you huat.

    This is the worst group, ruffians who not only create PM2.5 cancerous smoke but also Sat/Sun dirty the coffee shop betting horse and creating a mess of the place.

    And they are so proud of such culture, spitting, peeing under HDB.

  • #06-191 Fattie with big bottom:

    Totally agree 200%. The rudest toads you’ll find are at:

    1) Fairprice Finest Bukit Timah Plaza. The finest attracts the nastiest. They’ll insist loudly that you make way for them and their bulky trolleys when the passageway is clearly too narrow. Very impatient. If parking is expensive then take cab la stoopid!
    2) Bukit Timah Hawker Center. They shove you from behind. Bumch of cunts.
    3) Sheng Shiong @ Bukit Batok west blk 154. The older they are the ruder and more stupider.
    4) Female pest customers at Uniqlo. These women lose all sense of self control when they see nice things in the men’s dept. Brush you with their bags, talk loudly like crows, don’t bother if there are other people around. These female PERVERTS act like stores don’t make clothes for women anymore.
    5) Uncles whose favourite adjective is KANENA at everythiing. They should KAN themselves.
    6) Stupid peoples who drag noisy trolleys in the middle of the night and early morning. Or block footpaths and passageways. They should be shot with pellets.

    They should be deported to outer space.
