MM Lee visits Las Vegas, loses Singapore in high stakes poker game

Minister Mentor Lee is in the last leg of a trip to the US, where he earlier met Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in Washington. He is now in Las Vegas to get a glimpse of what Singapore may be like with casinos, and, accompanied by Rumsfeld, attended a high stakes poker game in Sands Las Vegas. While MM Lee did not wager any of his own personal wealth, he has reportedly lost Singapore to US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on an “all-in” hand of Texas hold-em no limit poker. Rumsfeld stated that “MM Lee has a good poker face, but he was distracted by his talking about Iraq and giving us a lot of advice. I basically ignored him and concentrated on the game.” MM Lee often gives advice to other countries on his trips abroad, and MM Lee’s trove of experience in invading and occupying other countries will doubtless prove useful to other US officials. Rumsfeld on the other hand, said that now that he owns Singapore, he plans to run it like a business, with “long working hours, few days off, and 2-year mandatory company training with no pay” and that as the owner, he will not reveal detailed financial data about his company to its workers. He added that Singapore will also be an ideal place to send his Guantanamo detainees, where they can be easily caned and held indefinitely without trial under Singapore law.
