A Reprise of “that” Op-Ed

That Fletcher Forum op-ed reproduced as a commentary by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) of Singapore, a leading research and graduate teaching institution in strategic and international affairs in the Asia Pacific region.  Many thanks to RSIS for letting it see the light of day back home.

My Prime Minister Is A “Fellow Left-Hander”, Not The Leader Of Malawi In Disguise

This week is the week that the Prime Minister of my country visited the country I am in.  Exciting times.  Got a few stories to share.

In this story, PM Lee Hsien Loong credited a train attendant for being normal (thanks Jon for the lead).

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, with his wife Ho Ching, sharing a light moment with train lead service attendant John Laliberte, 57, on being a fellow left-hander after Mr Laliberte took his meal order. They were travelling on the regular Acela Express from Washington, DC to New York City on Wednesday. -- ST PHOTO: WANG HUI FEN

This after meeting President Obama the most powerful lefty in the world. Here they are seen trying to cope with the demands of a right-handed world.

And finally, the Pentagon loaded of a video of the Malawi Leader received by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and titled the video as PM Lee’s visit (this is a useless link showing that the Pentagon has already removed the vid, let me know if you clicked it, and I will have a good laugh at you, then refer you to this link which beat our friends at The Pentagon Channel to it).  This caused a huge furore amongst 40% of the population in my home, with another 40% unaware and apathetic, and the remaining 20% illiterate.

I’m not an Englishman in New York, but I think I know how Sting felt.

Finally, I Get Published By Somebody Who Is Not Me

My op-ed entitled The Science of Iran’s Nuclear Behavior.  Many thanks to The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs, especially Jess Kuhn for making this happen.
