Singapore is the most influential country in the world

So, I read from the 3in1 Kopitiam that some Singaporeans are not happy with the way the Indian commandos went about their rescue operation in Mumbai, because it resulted in the death of 28-year old Singaporean Lo Hwei-Yen.

Actually, the Indians were very professional. Here's how an American described her rescue:

While she was trapped, Mackoff exchanged text messages with the U.S. Consulate, which coordinated the rescue with the Indian Army. The four were told the exact time they would be rescued.

"They informed us the final assault was beginning and we got a call from the colonel of the [Indian] army, and he said we will give you a password and if we come to the door and give it to you, come quietly with us," Mackoff said. "That's exactly what happened."

I am sure our Singapore PM Lee must have done something similar. After all, he has much greater clout than the US President.

He must have had coordinated a special rescue effort where
India's Defence Minister (instead of just an army colonel) personally contacted the Singapore hostage and gave her a password.

That's why our PM Lee
pays himself a salary SIX times more than his American counterpart does!

Singapore is the number 1, most influential nation in the world!

Even India had to give Singapore SIX times more face than it gave the United States. That's why there was a special rescue effort, coordinated directly by the Indian Defence Minister, and launched solely with the single aim of rescuing Ms. Lo!

And what's more, it was SIX times grander in scale than the rescue effort for Ms Mackoff, who by the way, was rescued only because the commandos were on their way to rescue Ms. Lo.

But somehow, the rescue operation failed.

It has happened. What to do? Let's move on!

Let us continue to pay our most powerful PM Lee SIX times more than the US President. He was not able to save Ms. Lo's life this time . But I am sure the next time, he can save SIX Singaporeans (while his American counterpart can only afford to get one password for one miserable American hostage).

Singapore - SIX times more difficult to govern than the United States.

PM Lee - SIX times more powerful than US President!

Majulah Singapura!

The question to also ask, is why Sinkapore needs 3PMs when all other countries need only one?

If the current PM is so capable (as claimed by the PAP and old man Lee) why does he still need daddy around and also the former PM to hold his hand?

Therefore instead of 6x more than the US president, we are actually paying more than 25x if we count all the expenses of the (un)holy trinity, including their lifelong pensions which there are already enjoying right now, in addition to their million-dollar salaries!!
