    Huang Jing said that PAP made three big mistakes:

    1. PAP thought there will be a big hooha over SCS and LHL stupidly spoke out vehemently against China. The hoohaa fizzled out and LHL looked like a fool.

    2. PAP invested much time and effort on TPP. But it was killed by Trump, showing pap's bad judgment.

    3. LHL thought Hilary would win USA's Nov 2016 Presidential Election and took actions expecting a Hilary victory. But Trump won and LHL was left licking his wounds

    You can't blame the good PM Lee for betting on Hillary. Betting on Trump to win is like betting on the NSP or SDA to win a GRC. Who would think that the americans are dumb enough to let Trump win the Electoral College?

    You think the Americans are dumb because you watch CNN and read NYT. Same as listening to CNA and reading Straits Times. Dont blame others when you dont know the ground. The fact is that trump won legally and decisively

    These mistakes are ok if we did not :
    1. Invested so much in China
    2. Depended so much on china in many aspects

    To make it worse, china is a country capable of :
    1. sabotage covertly
    2. turn around and dishonour all previous agreements

    If we don't know how to handle big time gangsters, don't mess with them.

    Yes, trump won legally and US's extremely biased media paints him to be a moron everytime. At the end of his term, i predict he would have done enough to warrant a second term. The yanks do not yet know how good a president they've got or at least not as bad as portrayed by the media and definitely better than Hilary Clinton who would have just carried on policies from Obama's admin.

    Trump may not last till next year. Mueller will have dug up enough dirt to have Trump executed, let alone impeached. His white house is in constant chaos, and many of his staff are going broke from lawyering up.

    Mistakes 2 and 3 are just too low class. My 3rd world nation PRC knows that too. That should not happen at all. You must suck up to both, able to withdraw when something extraordinary happens outside your plan. Even when you didn't want Trump to win, you should not be seen supporting Clinton too bluntantly. Politics is an ART, it's how well you play it.

    As for SCS, when you see the big boys aren't doing anything. You must sense something is wrong. You should not actually he seen openly suppork the ruling. Remember we are just a poison shrimp. Poison shrimp when move to a bigger sea or platform maybe swallow up nice and easy by whale and shark wholesale.

    But we have our own strong points too. We need to be able to play with out cards well since we have some capital gain from last few decades.

    I don't see anything wrong here. It a fact that LHL is infamous for exercising bad judgements like signing CECA with India, opening the flood gate for foreigners, poking fun at other countries and everyone including the academics are just too afraid to say it out and be politically correct.

    This prof is merely the one who yelled out the emperor has no clothes.
