Joint exploration with China in the West Philippine Sea
MetadataShow full item record
Shock waves rippled through the land when the President said that “China should turn the Philippines into a Chinese province.” These words were uttered before the Chinese Filipino Business Club. To many, it was as if our own Chief Executive had already ceded the nation to its illegal invader. Malacañang’s spin doctors went on overdrive to tell us not to take the words of the President literally. Still, the populace took the President’s words to heart. Who can blame them? After all, he is still the President and his words reflect the sentiments of the state. His words cut deep, especially to the patriots among us. The situation is exacerbated by the President’s relentless acts of flirtation towards China like a teenage boy raging with hormones.
