Really, the death of all reason.

December 3, 2005

I am really tired of all the abuse that Singapore is drawing over the execution of Van Nguyen. (see article)
http://www.theage.com.au/news/opinion/the-death-of-reason/2005/12/02/1133422106383.html

Apparently, the death penalty for drug crimes is a return to medieval standards of justice and is not in line with Singapore’s pretext as being a first world economy. Oh really? Lets talk about Guantanamo Bay in the US then. And Bush’s blocking of the torture bill. Or about Britain’s equivalent of G.Bay in Birmingham prison. Or about Australia condeming a bunch of Afghan refugees to certain death by not allowing them into Australia under the guise of national security.

Firstly, the dude was carrying half a kg of heroin (400gms for the pedantic). Im not a fan of the death penalty but you need to respect the laws of the country you are in irrespective of whether its the airport or the actual city.

Another article goes as far to suggest that Singapore is executing him because apparently we dont like the “Arrogant Aussie style”. The arrogant Aussies need to re-learn a word they know well. Its called Sovereignty. The same word they used as an excuse to refuse the Tampa refugees.

    I have something to say abt this article
    //By a law that accused him of trafficking into Singapore when he had not entered the country, had no intention of entering the country and was plucked from an airport transit lounge on his way to Australia.

    Hmm…I wonder if Singapore airport is ‘not part of the country’ then is the Singapore airport located in Burma??

    I wonder is IF the airport is not considered as part of the country y then was a dog sniffing my bag for drugs in the Melbourne airport before immigration check?

    Oh yeah. Lets not even go into the entire procedure where they check if you’ve got groceries or pickle (agricultural products) or dirt from shoes at every Australian airport.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product’s durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano’s super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
