You wonder what sorts of shriveled brains produce the logic that the Opposition — still dominated by leaders of the Yellowtard-Communist Axis — apply to the issue of the Philippine Government response to the latest South China Sea incident. Not even the editor of Yellowtard newsletter Inquirer can resist the call for a bit of sabre rattling…
How do we not lose one inch of territory as promised by the President? The only way is to deploy better-equipped and bigger ships in and around the reefs and shoals in the West Philippine Sea.
Indeed, the fact is, China recognises no laws and no position outside of its claim to the South China Sea.

Perhaps it is high time Filipinos extend a bit more respect for their men and women in uniform. Strong state forces form the foundations of strong nations. The strongest of them are characterised by standout martial traditions and a historic capacity to wage war.
