Shameful

Shameful, so shameful. Seriously, super malu la.

Our elite red beret contingent was marching in much disarray during the recent NDP rehearsal. What is even more disgraceful is that the elite commandos won the best combat unit and I count myself as a proud for Honour and Glory CDO soldier in the seventies when the late Dr Goh Keng Swee was the defence minister.

Regarding the commando contingent marching fiasco, I want to ask the Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen (NEH) what happened? I want to ask NEH a few questions and I want him to know a few things as well.

I want to know if that was the best precision marching that our don’t know what comm….dos were able to do in front of the cheering crowds during NDP. I want NEH to know that much bigger China’s women marching contingents would put our don’t know what comm…dos to shame anyday as far as precision marching is concerned. I want NEH to know that such sub-standard and disarray marching on actual NDP and infront of foreign dignitaries and ambassadors etc will put our country to much shame and turn us immediately into an international joke. I also want to ask Ng EH if he is training real soldiers or merely churning out boy scouts in army fatigues…..

Last but not least, I hope that NEH and his senior officers will not push and push the failings, faults and blames further and further away from themselves and ended up only punishing junior officers, ncos and men much further down the line only.

Wow lau eh, commando leh but so malu, so shameful and so close to our country’s big day. Need I say more?

Think.

    When we have no say over the country, you call that OUR blah blah blah. You have any say over this contingent? You think he will answer you? So old. So simple. So naive.

    Are these marchers really really soldiers, soldiers who love the SG flag and fight for Loong and Harimau – or they don’t have better jobs in civvy street that they become ‘paid’ soldiers to be soldiers in peace times.

    Response: Simple Simon: since you have HIGHLIGHTED the INCOMPETENCY of World Class Minister CHICKEN HEN, expect the NEEDFUL by him should the Elite Red Beret Contingent REALLY REPEAT the Disarray Rehearsal Marching on 9 Aug 2022!: aftermath the DisGraceFool performance, he will PUNISH the whole Contingent by ordering them to March in the parade square under the HOT SUN 57 times holding their rifle high up above the shoulder! In the olden days, this was how the GOH Marching Contingent Kenna punished by the RSM when such Disarray Marching was displayed on Important Occasions!

    ******
    A day to squeeze every ounce of patriotism and pride out of its compliant citizens.

    A new song to celebrate the day, … again.

    Flags, buntings, posters, speeches and reminders on all mediums of communication, … to remind and re-milk the entire process.

    Of course, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating one’s independence, but, wouldn’t the dosh be better spent, … attending and addressing the real issues of its compliant citizens.

    Then again, if the people say nothing and do nothing, … the show continues and the soppy songs from all manner of “artists” perpetuate the airwaves, annually !!!

    Overplayed, overcooked and overhyped !!!

  • NotMyProblem:

    On behalf of the minister and commander of this unit, let me explain; those soldiers in this parade were not from the cammando unit. The true commando are in their unit standby in case of terrorist attack. Also since this was only a rehearsal and 40% of the audience were foreigners, what do they know about marching!

    Now you know?

    Simon,why pass snide remarks at boy scouts?
    Marching with perfection is not important aspect of true good soldiering.
    You look at superficial,face value only.
    At least boy scouts know how to tie knots,etc better than most NCC boys?

  • AristoCATs - Open Secret:

    Armed forces practice regularly
    to be in shape and in synch.

    Defence is the biggest budget item.
    -
    But what happens to Reservists?

    When they don their uniforms again,
    their skills and experiences will return -
    like skills learned in cycling or swimming?

    -

    Especially nowadays with more sophisticated weapon systems or
    tactic. . .

    -

    High budget allocations annually
    yet, so many paper Generals go through the motion –
    funds “well used”?

    No wonder these AristoCATs dont “fare well”. . . :(

  • John Doe:

    These parade soldiers are mistaken as SAF adult military men by Simon.

    They are school’s students army cadets.

    The PAP Administration is thoroughly sleeping to believe these marching soldiers are those they rely on to protect SG in war times – fat hopes.

    Primarily SG, under the PAP Administration has formed a society of races, build tgther, in racial harmony.
    This is the crux of PAP management of SG SOCIETY,
    for years mind you.

    There’s no statehood worth mention, no nationalism to BIND and UNITE all of SG. The detained SAF Armour vehicles at HK SHOULD BE A MOMENTOUS OCCASION to display the meaty sovereign unity, reconciliation of SG races TO DEFY PRC – but the entire HUMILIATION EVERY SG withess the humble Hen PAP thank you offered to Communists for the SAF assets to be released.

    SHAME SHAME SHAME the PAP.

    The fake school pledge IS ONLY A LIP SERVICE to CON generations and generations of SG.

    There is a reason by this is called ‘basic drill’, that’s because this is the most basic in military march.

    It’s clear that the marching platoon does not understand the basic of moving as one. Same step same direction.

    The RSM has to bear some responsibility for this awful public display.

    The only consolidation is that it’s not on 9th & beam live.

    Actually, just look at the number of houses/flats displaying the national flag – seems a bit lesser that usual by observation. Maybe this year no budget for PA/pappies GRLs to give out free flags, hor. This may reflect the true mood of the people at ground level (not those in ivory towers). Who cares about marching contingents and all the pomps of ND when COL is the main worry for many. Wrong priority/emphasis by our million$ clowns …. again. (Like still want to increase GST!?!?!)

  • BIG READ: Stop the PAP Steal:

    The real issue is the professionalism of soldiers in the entire SAF. Whether it is RSM, CSM, GSO, CO, OC, G2 or G5 whatever rank and file does not matter – it’s the entire DNA in the SAF don’t they really have pride as a soldier of SG much as don’t the Entire PAP Cabinet serve SG with humility, pride to uplift fellow SG or they are there for the money. The CLASSIC OPPOSITE IS NZ PM Jacinda Arden WHO CERTAINLY UNDOUBTEDLY shame to shambles the PAP Administration.

    All that matters is that these soldiers get their weekly booster shots to protect the country and their loved ones. If that means they can no longer walk straight, shoot straight or fight at all, well, so be it.

  • Spec Ops:

    This is why conscription never works. Everyone who has a functioning brain know they are being forced by law so why bother?

    They know they are serving million dollar ministers as security guards only.

    Going to more ‘elite’ level units just means you are a puppy given a bigger feeding bowl.

    The injection being forced upon them could be causing neuron degeneration. Being able to synchronize your moves while marching requires an innate awareness.

    When I was in NS from 2002 to 2004, as explained more recently by someone on Youtube who served both in SAF and also in US Army, this army that is just there to assure blind Sinkies that their country is ‘safe’ from attack has its head up its rear end.

    Its all about training us to be robots to serve the country blindly as an animal pet for the million dollar ministers. SAF is puppy obedience school for Sinkies. No individual thought or self expression.

    8 out of 10 people in the country have taken the booster, showing the power of NS brainwashing and conditioning.

    After putting us through the meat grinder only to give away our jobs to foreigners branded with the new citizen label, this is the Heaven Court of Eternal Justice bringing judgement to Sinkieland.

    No No No. It’s not the Ringling Bros.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    ( with sound of Drums rolling )

    May I introduce to you our RSAF.
    Come witness, hold your breath and be dazzled by our death defying F35 flying trapeeze.

    Be amazed and terrified by our RSN scuba divers falling into just a pail of water from great heights.

    Then to lighten your horrifying moments, laugh heartily at the performance our chief clown with his 83 white monkeys doing tricks to tickle you until your pants drop at the ringside.

    The Ring Master does not have to crack the whip.
    There is no fierce animals performing as they are banned by pofma and other various legislative “acts”.

    NDP is becoming a more & more boring event.
    Many trublus dont care..anymore.
    This is not the SG we wanted for ourselves & our families.
    A SG betrayed and sold out!
    Most use this p/hol to rest out at home…the more well off all ran away across the causeway for some R&R…as always..lucky them.
    Spending multi mil$ during bad times like now is pure Pride.
    No one really needs this ND show except the sgov…politics at work.
