A personal friend of mine confided to me that he’s getting more and more concerned about the standoff between the
Philippines and at Scarborough Shoal. China
Even if I’m not a military man, I immediately told him without thinking there’s NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, including the possibility of war.
For the simple reason that China IS FULLY AWARE that she has NO ALLY in her highly questionable movements in the South China Sea, which includes Scarborough Shoal.
And that we have a mutual defense treaty with the
in case any country attacks us. US
Other countries, especially those who have their own concerns in cur country like our trading partners, would not want to see their interests jeopardized by armed Chinese aggression.
And risk the possibility of the entry of other countries into any conflict.
So even if China has the biggest number of soldiers on Earth and a well-armed military, she knows she will NEVER WIN against the rest of the world, whether
in a shooting war or on the diplomatic front.
Personally, the Scarborough Shoal is an isolated UNLAWFUL ACT by some criminals in the Chinese military.
The Chinese poachers, or should I say THIEVES, who had triggered the standoff, probably want more of the giant clams, corals and live sharks which they had earlier caught and fled with.
That’s why their trying to scare off our Navy and Coast Guard personnel with their ships.
Once the Chinese see that they can’t intimidate us, and the
and other countries start speaking up in our favor or for the tension to end,
20-1 they’ll readily back off. US
categorically said it will help us if necessary over the persistent ownership
claim by China of the Spratly Islands,
immediately expressed readiness to a diplomatic solution. China
That will happen again with Scarborough Shoal. Of curse, prayer is still the best weapon but don’t let the standoff affect you.

Read the whole blog. I think it's excessive to solely pin the blame for the power problem in
to the current administration if the starting point is the rehabilitation of
the hydropower plant. The rehabilitation was a continuing problem even before
the administration came in so maybe they should not be the only one to take the

The ‘moro-moro’ energy summit did not actually resolve anything or even set any goals. it was all a platform for Abnoy to tell the Mindanaoans that they should pay more. As always, Abnoy is just once again washing his hands as he does best. There was certainly no shortage of blame and excuses as always. It is not impossible for Congress to pass a special law circumventing the EPIRA, giving Abnoy the authority to build a power plant in
Mindanao that will be later
sold to the private sector. Government’s role is to lead the way and serve and
protect the people. But as always, Abnoy will take the easy way out of anything
and pass everything to the people. Makes one wonder, whatever happened to the
investors who are supposed to have confidence in the Abnoy admin?
Iyan lang naman ang kayang gawin ni Abnoy, linlangin ang taumbayan sa kanyang mga kapalpakan at katangahan!
Natural na bigyan nya ng protection ang mga culprit sa likod ng
Mindanao electric problem. Paano sila kikita?

Boyet, the problem with the administration of Aavnoy is no action until the problem arises. Example is this current situation in
Mindanao. When he first started in office 2
years ago, he could have started being pro active about the problem that he knew will become worse if he doesn't act on it.
He waited until it became worse and now, he's not giving the Mindanaoans any choice
but a more polluted and more expensive solution. If he had acted on this problem
when he started his stint as leader of the country, he would have been more than
halfway above the problem. What did he do the past two years? NOTHING! And all
he did, with his lapdogs, was cancel all the good and suspicious contracts of
the previous administration and blame them for the current problem. This is the
kind of attitude Avnoy and his administration has been showing the public ever
since he took over GMA. Tthat's why nothing has been done to improve the
economy or alleviate the plight of the poor. It's all about giving poor excuses
and blaming the past!
ED PUNZAL of Tagig
Geez you people are so intelligent that why not do something about the problems? You talk as if you are fully aware of the real situation and conditions in
Mindanao. You are only good
in making sarcastic comments and saying nasty things for you
are all opposed to the present administration. Besides, the President is doing
everything in addressing the problems in Mindanao,
so just wait and see if something concrete comes out of the solutions being
given by the administration to arrest the problems.
Let's wait and see "if something concrete comes out?" If nothing positive comes out, shall we still wait and see? Time is gold, this is not the time for Noynoying.

Economic saboteurs! Now, they're planning a P350 billion budget to prop up the power shortage ... question is, who gets the commission.
LOLITA BELEN of Cabuyao, Laguna
"You have to pay more because this is the reality of economics, not the rhetoric of politics. Everything has its price.” SO HAVING YOU AS OUR PRESIDENT FOR 6 LONG DREADED YEARS IS THE PRICE WE HAVE TO ENDURE, is that it?
Tama ka, bro. Nagsabi pa, pay more or live with insufficient energy. Iyon ba ang solution sa kahirapan, lalo niyang pahirapan ang taga-
Mindanao? May Maria Cristina Falls, may Mt.
Apo geo, may

Pnoy has all the more given Mindanaoans good reason to reject him and his LP in the 2013 elections.

The reality is, he has no time for actions for solutions. He will just blame GMA for that matter. He's busy in manipulating what will favor conviction of GMA, Ccorona, Abalos and others.
Nice article, Sir Boyet!

Is this your best approach on how to solve the power crisis in
Mindanao, by passing the burden
to the people?
A HARD SLAP ON THE FACE OF RAAISSA ROBLES!
Baka naman totoo kasi!
BELINDA OLIVARES CUNANAN
Buking talaga si Raissa Robles. And buking din ang rappler.com which seems to be dedicated to the proposition that CJ Corona is corrupt, ergo he must be removed at all cost and install his chief rival at the SC. The problem, however, is that a counter-story such as what ABS-CBN America just did on the supposed luxurious apartment of Charina Corona will not make it into the yellow media which blasted the story of CJ Corona's alleged US properties earlier. Ang makakaalam lang ang mga taong may access to the Internet. Will ABS-CBN in
publicize in full
the story of its American correspondent? Manila
STRIKE 2 FOR RAISSA ROBLES
Even US RNs (registered nurses) who earn less then US PTs (physical therapists) can buy houses like those of Charina Corona! Dumb ass Raissa Robles! 30
