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.”

There’s a way to win wars without fighting

On Sept. 28, 2013, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin declared that the military’s mission in Zamboanga City had been accomplished.

The military mission took almost 20 days to accomplish, left hundreds dead and injured, and devastated the city, driving more than 100,000 Zamboangueños from their homes into various evacuation centers, many of them with their houses burned.
