A question sent to us from one of our readers:

Just wondering if you would post a topic on why from US President Johnson to Bush, from UN Sec. Gen U Thant to Ban Ki Moon, Singapore has not been internationally criticised for its semi-authoritarian rule and not subjected to any sanctions.

Or why people like Aung San Suu Kyi get Congressional Awards and Nobel Prizes while none of our home grown fighters get any sort of recognition for their efforts. It is not as if people don’t know what happened to Chin Peng, Francis Seow etc etc etc.

Please share your views.
