Much has been said about Lee Kuan Yew's domestic policies, so as a student of diplomatic history I would like to offer some thoughts on a limited aspect of Lee Kuan Yew the diplomat. During the Cold War, Lee Kuan Yew was one of the most prominent voices calling for action to counter Communist Vietnam, mistaking it to be a pawn of the Soviet Union and a sponsor of Communist subversion in the region.
I HAVE heard many disrespectful jokes and opinions regarding Mr Lee Kuan Yew over the past few weeks. With his death, let all Singaporeans stop tolerating such disrespectful comments made against Mr Lee and take the individuals who make them to task, by raising the issue with the relevant authorities or the individuals' respective professional or governing bodies.
Authorities in Guangdong are trying to capitalise on Lee Kuan Yew by invetsing 40 Million yuan (S$8.8 Million) to turn Lee Kuan Yew's "Ancestral Home" into a tourist spot. The problem is, Mr Lee Kuan Yew has never actually even stepped foot in the supposed ancestral home and he has always regarded Singapore as his home.
The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 appears to have deliberately crashed the plane after he was left alone in the cockpit, according to a French prosecutor. The captain was intentionally locked outside minutes before the A320 crashed into an alpine mountain ridge, French Prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, a 28-year-old German national, was silent throughout the plane’s descent and was alive at the point of impact, according to the prosecutor.
