PH in quandary

The reason Chinese officials refuse and reject the “memorial” submitted to the United Nations for arbitration is that they know that, in their row with the Philippines over disputed islands like the Ayungin Shoal, their claim has no basis while that of the Philippines is rightful. China fears it cannot justify its claim, not even with the maps it has. But the Philippines has 40 maps, as well as other relevant documents, to support its claim.

Response to China: ‘Usjaphil’

By

When a bigger guy like China pushes us, a puny nation, the first reflex is not to fight back because we are too small. But when push comes to shove, we rethink our position in two ways. First, in our anger and helplessness, we may want to fight back, not caring if we lose, which would be suicidal. Second, we may look for “creative” ways of fighting back.

US shows naval force amid Asia arms buildup

By

A few weeks ahead of the visit of President Barack Obama to four of the United States’ Asian allies, including the Philippines, on April 28-29, to sign an enhanced defense agreement that would give the United States wider access to Philippine military bases, the US Seventh Fleet sailed into Manila Bay on March 17 in a show of force to impress upon its allies its commitment to defend them against China’s aggressive encroachments on disputed territories in the East China Sea and South China Sea.

‘The Chinese have landed!’

By

China’s intrusion into Philippine seas is a blatant travesty of our territorial integrity. This act should be opposed in the most vigilant ways. As we look to the sea, we should also look at our shores—the Chinese have landed!

Pro-US, pro-China or just being Filipino?

Last March 22, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin twitted activists, saying: “Our problem is we keep on complaining about the Enhanced Defense Cooperation with the US. Why don’t we complain when the Chinese use water cannons on us? Why? Nasaan ang pagka-Pilipino natin? We demonstrate against those who are helping us, but we don’t demonstrate against those who are bullying us.”

Dealing with God

By

It’s astonishing how China, despite becoming the second most powerful nation in the world, continues to harbor a parochial outlook. It’s astonishing how China, despite heralding the wave of the future, at least compared to the United States which is in the throes of decline, remains trapped in the past. It’s astonishing how China, despite being in a position to become a shaper of the world, barely understands the world.

US tells China: Don’t use Crimea land grab model

By

In its strongest message since the standoff between Manila and Beijing over the disputed Second Thomas Shoal (Ayungin Shoal) in the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea) on March 29, the United States warned on Thursday that China should not doubt the US commitment to defend its Asian allies and the prospect of economic retaliation should also discourage China from using force to pursue territorial claims in Asia, in the way Russia has done in the annexation of Crimea.

Boundaries in a globalized world

By

One would have to see the world with bellicose eyes not to feel uneasy over the absurd talk about China doing to us what Russia supposedly did to Ukraine recently—annex territory by force. In the first place, the people of Crimea voted to secede from Ukraine. Moreover, Crimea had been a part of Russia until it was capriciously given to Ukraine in 1953 by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. But, more importantly, China would be crazy to court worldwide condemnation and retaliation by invading a sovereign nation like the Philippines.

China defies Deng Xiaoping warning

By

“If one day China should change her color and turn into a superpower, if she too should play the tyrant in the world, and everywhere subject others to her bullying, aggression and exploitation, the people of the world should identify her as social-imperialism, expose it, oppose it and work together with the Chinese people to overthrow it.” ~ Deng Xiaoping speech at the United Nations, April 10, 1974
