From Kausikan to Balakrishnan

Looks like our foreign policy has taken a more muscular tone and Bilahari Kausikan was simply opening the gate for the others to follow. If that was the plot, I will take back what I said about Mr. Kausikan. Let's go for it. We need this because we lost our Lion in March this year, now we must show the nasties in our neighborhood we are a pack of wolves not to be trifled with.

I assume beyond the public gaze, foreign powers will test if we still have that iron in us after LKY passed away. I made a post then about Israel's President doing us a favor during LKY's funeral.

Why shield the public from the ugly realities of geopolitics and risk nurturing a generation of softies?

The choice brutally frank words V. Balakrishnan used can be found in Today's.

  1. Well, at least Bala covered himself by blaming the big companies, and not the Indonesian government. This allows him some wriggling space in case the Indons take offence.
