Enrile’s Senate #Mamasapano Hearing further highlighted Aquino’s inutile command structure

Apologists of the Aquino government are currently celebrating a false ‘achievement’ following today’s Mamasapano Senate hearing. They think that “proof” that Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III did not give a direct order to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to stand down from providing support to the besieged Special Action Force (SAF) […]

Interview with The General

Charles E.: General, thank you so much for granting this exclusive interview.  Let me just say in behalf of all Filipinos, it is truly good to see you risen from the grave. Heneral Luna:  Why, thank you Charles.  I guess we will speak in English since your Tagalog is baluktot, and your Spanish is non-existent. […]

Our enemies want to win while we and our allies just want to get along with them

I wonder if people remember Pearl Harbor. I get the feeling not too many do. When Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese Empire on the 7th December 1941, what did America do? They got together and bombed back — not just Imperial Japan but Nazi Germany as well. America set their entire military-industrial complex […]

The Hypocrisy Of Wanting To Help Syrian Refugees

Just in the previous week, there has been much talk of the Syrian refugee problem especially after the drowned body of Aylan Kurdi (Allah bless his soul) was discovered. The heart-wrenching pictures of the dead boy has triggered much controversy around the world with some questioning why more developed countries like the U.S., Canada, Australia […]

Don’t YOU get it yet? People don’t care about the Lumads!

Social media “activists” can hashtagscream #StopKillingLumads all they want ’til their touchscreens crack. You get a “trending” hashtag at best and a few cheers and high-fives around that “achievement”. But, at the end of the day, you get jack squat results. Mainstream media won’t give them the time of day, politicians won’t mention them in […]

The Filipino Obsession With Self-Destruction

Before I begin, I would like to apologize if my previous article, The Rape Of The Philippines: A Vicious Cycle, offended anyone. It was not my intention to trivialize rape nor create misleading ideas about it. I merely wanted to create a good metaphor for the kind of trouble the Philippines is in. Unfortunately, it seems […]

The new Gwei Lo: China’s preposterous ‘nine-dotted line’ South China Sea claim

Gwei (鬼) means “ghost”. A lo (佬) is a regular guy, a chap or a bloke.  The term is a reference to skin color, as white skin is associated with ghosts. The term is sometimes translated into English as foreign devil. The term arose in the 16th century when European sailors appeared in southern China as they were associated with barbarians. Historically, Chinese people had the […]

Bongbong Marcos is the only Filipino REALLY qualified to talk about the future of Mindanao!

First of all, why do people who favour the passing of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) in its current unconstitutional form see themselves as “peace advocates”? Does that imply that war is a certainty if the current draft BBL is not passed? What does that say about the Moro Islamic Liberation Front — that terrorist […]
