By

The Philippines is bracing for a heavy fallout of retaliation from China after Manila filed last Sunday a case with the United Nations arbitration tribunal in The Hague, subjecting Beijing to international legal scrutiny over disputed waters in the South China Sea.

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

China warned: Don’t push PH to the wall

By

The strong diplomatic protest against China’s water-cannon attack on Filipino fishers on Jan. 27 in Scarborough Shoal in the West Philippine Sea was followed by an announcement by the Armed Forces of the Philippines that the disputed islet, which Manila claims as Bajo de Masinloc, would now be under the jurisdiction of the Western Command.

Fight Less and Work More

By

If there is a moment in these last almost 500 years for the country and our people to finally take off, it is now. It is now actually a situation where the dream is so near, but we must not let it slip away.   It used to be that we had to fight the [...]

‘Back-channel statesmanship’

President Aquino showed statesmanship when he resorted to back-channeling to ease the tension between the Philippines and China. China is the Philippines’ third biggest partner in the areas of trade, investment, development assistance and technical cooperation. The Philippine National Oil Co. and the China National Offshore Oil Corp. have signed in 2004 an “Agreement for [...]

What’s wrong with a profitable joint venture?

By

The brouhaha over Scarborough Shoal, much to my chagrin and at the risk of sounding unpatriotic, I can only view as puerile, comical, or pure braggadocio. The mere fact that the general area has been called “South China Sea,” and the tiny atoll “Scarborough,” since time immemorial should have served us notice long ago that some intruders were “trampling our sacred shores.”

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.

Harnessing our water assets

By

Around four-fifths of the Philippines is actually water, and only one-fifth land. This is premised on the 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone defined by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. As an archipelagic country, this fact is of utmost importance to us. But until recently when incidents in our western seas put our territorial seas and outlying islands at the center stage of national discussions, we tended to all but this much larger part of our territory.

Flash point heightened by secret diplomacy

By

The Cabinet meeting on Thursday left the country in suspense over how soon the Aquino administration will send ships back to Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal to reassert the Philippine claim over disputed territories in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) amid expanding Chinese maritime incursions in the area.

How important is our sovereignty, our honor, to us?

By

When I read that a Chinese vessel rammed a Filipino fishing boat off the shores of Bolinao, Pangasinan, I felt so enraged. Then, I wondered why the incident was not near the Scarborough Shoal, and decided to wait for more information. It did surface a few days later that a HK cargo ship was a [...]
