The last thing the Singaporeans want is to fight last-ditch battles on Singaporean soil...A lot of this goes back to the fall of Singapore in 1942. That history is very poignant to them - the idea that once the Japanese crossed the straits of Johore, it was all over. They never want to have this happen again. They will take the war to the enemy.
