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.

Prepare for China: Part II

By

It may simply be a game for China. After all, who is the Philippines to fight back? Pushing us away from the sea, water-hosing our fishermen in Scarborough Shoal, blocking our supply ships at Second Thomas Shoal (Ayuningin Reef), China ups the ante in its bullying of the Philippines. And it seems that most Filipinos are not aware how close we are to war.

Prepare for China

By

I have Chinese blood. More than 200 years ago, a Chinaman married a native from Iloilo City. From that union, a whole clan was born – that that clan keeps growing and growing. I am not against the Chinese. How can I be when we have shared blood?

Milestones to mark

Despite the media’s traditional and light-hearted recourse to fortune tellers and fearless forecasts at the start of the year, nobody really knows what the new year will bring. At best, these predictions are an entertaining exercise in extrapolation; at worst, they offer a false certainty. In reality, the most anyone can do is to prepare [...]

US, China sowing trouble in Asia?

Is the Philippine government not falling into a Byzantine international snare? Is the government not thinking that the United States and China are intentionally fomenting disputes in the Asian region? These queries are being raised because the results are obvious.

Lone Asean voice taking on China

By

Placing consensus above all, it is fair to say that Asean leaders are generally not known for their displays of emotion or passion.

‘Coalition of the willing’ rising against China

By

By disregarding its passport, China has sparked a torrent of diplomatic protests. The new passport carries a map that shows China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea and on its border with India.

‘Forbes,’ ‘Por-bes,’ or ‘Pobres Park’?

By

“Dasma” is short for Dasmariñas and refers to the posh gated community in Makati, not the busy Chinatown street in downtown Manila, or the first-class city in the province of Cavite. “Por-bes” used to refer to a street near España Avenue and the University of Santo Tomas named in honor of William Cameron Forbes, American governor-general of the Philippines (1908-1913), until it was changed to honor Arsenio H. Lacson, the colorful mayor of Manila (1952-1962). Forbes Park may be the premier gated community in the Philippines, but it has not kept sour grapes from commenting on mortgaged, repossessed, or sold properties in a place they sneeringly refer to as “Pobres Park.”

Is China losing the diplomatic plot?

By

In 2016, China’s share of the global economy will be larger than America’s in purchasing-price-parity terms. This is an earthshaking development; in 1980, when the United States accounted for 25 percent of world output, China’s share of the global economy was only 2.2 percent. And yet, after 30 years of geopolitical competence, the Chinese seem to be on the verge of losing it just when they need it most.

Effective deterrent to Chinese incursions

By

Since the maritime standoff at Scarborough Shoal in April, when the Philippines accused Chinese fishermen of poaching in its exclusive economic zone, not a week has passed without an ever-expanding incursion by Chinese boats in disputed waters in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).

No one can stop China in Spratlys but China or the power of world opinion

PHILIPPINES-CHINA-SPRATLYS-DIPLOMACY

No one can stop China from claiming “indisputable sovereignty” over the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea)—except China itself or the authoritative power of world opinion.

Asean, undermined

The failure of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to issue a joint communiqué after a regular meeting of foreign ministers concluded in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh last Friday was truly unprecedented. It was the first time in the 45-year history of the Asean, a virtual paper factory with dozens of regularly scheduled, amply documented conferences every year, that a post-event statement could not be released. The failure bodes ill for the usefulness of the Asean as a regional association.
