Defeatist behavior

05:41 AM November 26, 2018

Talk about telling it like it is!

The editorial, “Music to Beijing’s ears” (11/20/18), didn’t mince words, so to speak, in recounting President Duterte’s sheepish behavior toward China from the start.


Isn’t that weird, the way Digong shows his deference to anything and everything China wants to snatch away from the Philippines?

Considering the way he bullies the helpless in his own country, you would think that he’s the type who would not give in to anyone who tries to cross his line.


But, heck, NO! With his Chinese counterpart, Digong is ready, willing and able to do whatever Xi wants.

Let’s hope that Xi Jinping doesn’t take full advantage of Digong’s defeatist behavior, or our dear Philippines might soon become a province of China.
