Latest CNNGo.com "Say What? with mrbrown" column: The WikiLeaks-Singapore saga, part 2
Like a gift that keeps giving, WikiLeaks has released yet another leaked U.S. cable that involves Singapore.
This time, the cable shows our straight-talking Minister Mentor describing the Myanmar (or Burma) leaders as "stupid" and "dense." He was even quoted as saying that dealing with the regime is like "talking to dead people."
That immediately conjures up mental images of zombie generals for me. Which is probably a reminder for me to cut down on those "Left For Dead 2" (L4D2) gaming sessions. Perhaps in "Left For Dead 3: Burma" you can play as Harry, the tough old guy who clears a room of zombies with just his rapier wit and barbed tongue.
Who needs a shotgun or a chainsaw when you have weapons of mass elocution like that?
I am not sure how it will affect Singapore and Burma ties. We do appreciate the Burmese leaders spending their money shopping here and seeking medical treatment at our fine hospitals. Hopefully they take "stupid" and "dense" in the right spirit and not out of context. (cont'd)
