One plausible scenario may be that Singapore may be forced to take sides between competing global powers. Once we take sides, we may face military tension from the opposing side.

I think our PM are already facing some of these pressure. I notice have been mentioning these in some of his speeches, with the most one in NDR 15.

we have already taken side by allowing the 7th fleet to park at CNB.
actually, China don't really like us.

In any case, in the event that SG is forced to take sides, we will most likely remain neutral or take the side with a higher chance of winning.

Anyone remember the terrorism years ago? All we did was say, "We do not condone terrorism." Period. We will only say that we agree or disagree with a certain situation, but we will never commit ourselves into providing assistance should it put the nation in danger.

Our army is the weakest link.
People only give SG respect due to our Navy or Air Force which can give us an undeniable advantage.
And our new HIMARs artillery.


But Army grunts and tanks ? lol no.

On paper, we have a very strong military.

On the ground...I leave it to you to decide.
You only need to look at the performance of our ex general running the mrt system ..

We will not know how strong our Army is until the war happen. Then again, with war, Singapore would be doomed. Maybe Sg can prevent kena owned like how we did in WW2, but it will lose its prosperity when war break outs.

activating the ground forces is really last last last resort

we are pretty much dependent on our air force and perhaps navy to carry out first strikes and stop enemy advances before they begin

Hmm, pardon me, but please explain to me, why would anyone want to attack us?

When it is basically much easier to come over, be an FT, get our citizenship & get treated like a KING.
Malaysia cant have their whole population come here be ft right? And furthermore, come here be ft only enrich yourself not your motherland..

Does the SAF has something like the Iraqi's Republican guards that is very well train to deploy first before calling up the reservists?
NSF not counted as they are too green and too young.

Can we win against Indonesia if there is a war?
Hint: They have limited number of ships and air transport.

Defend can, attack no. I think our land will be at high risk if we send forces away to attack.
