The Philippine government should realize by now that the payola, pomp and pageantry associated with being a glorified puppet of a superpower comes with a price it can hardly afford to part with, which is its own peace and prosperity.  Staying away from the fray, instead of insisting that Huangyan and Spratly islands are the Philippines' Sudetenland, is what distinguishes a statesman from a demagogue.  Let the superpowers settle their own disputes.  China, on the other hand, should not let the oil companies decide how much of the mineral resources of the Spratly islands should be shared with the Philippines on condition of its recognition of China's sovereignty.  This decision cannot be made by any corporation, provincial government, autonomous regional government, or ministry, on behalf of China.  This decision can only be made at the highest levels of the Chinese government, and should be obeyed by all the other branches of government and SOES.

The Philipppines has realised long ago that being a puppet to the West is more cost-effective than ...

Being a puppet with no dignity is a fact, being a province of China is Agit Prop fiction.

Forget it, this President Aquino will show you his middle finger, and right so !!!

Because YOU ar ...

Someone told me that Philippines is a country of gangland and an unsafe destination for travel, not especially for children where abduction is prevalent and violence not uncommon.  If you have any Filipino maids, just ask them.  

I used to have some doubts but now I am convinced that my friend was speaking the truth.

When I first watched the news of the hostage taking, my first question was, "Why Philippines of all destinations, especially when you are travelling with kids?"

I know travelling in Philippines is cheap after all it is a poor country.  But it is NOT a safe country for children (or even for adults) .... if you follow the news.


Turning around and pointing finger at me that I don't care for the victims (as if you or your President cares) is an ACT OF COWARDICE.

I went back to read some old news on the hostage-taking.  Donald Tsang, the then Hongkong Chief Executive in-charge, had made several attempts to reach your President Aquino during the hostage-taking but he (your President) was nowhere to be found.  Yet you call this man who SHOCKINGLY HAS NOT APOLOGISED to the victims 3 years on as someone who cared for the victims ??!!!

You AMAZES me.  It goes to showing how much you say actually hold water and in fact brings suspicion on your MOTIVES for OPPOSING the demand for an APOLOGY when it is due and ONLY DECENT to do so.

What a COWARD you are, Rudi !!!

an objective analysis suggest the road to happiness and prosperity lies in being a puppet to the west...(Japan, South Korea, Taiwan )....................and if China wants your land , the Chinese considers the native on it to be terrorists.

This whole business of the current Chinese government's outlandish claims deep into the South China Sea is one of the few errors it has made. This stimulates frightened reactions all over SE Asia, puts pressure on the US to increase its military presence, and sets-back the process of forming a China-US alliance that will be acceptable to rightist voters in the US. This should be promptly de-escalated. If a rallying-point for the more crude nationalists in China is desired for internal politics, the best focus is on Japan and Abe (the perfect foil!). Just let the Americans know that this is just for domestic consumption - like Castro and Assad are for them!
What's on your mind...
