THIS IS gonna be the first time that i’ll be making my comment on this issue. First thing, I side with the President. Because first of all, we are not Barbarians and we live in the 21st Century. Disputes are not resolved thru force. It should always be diplomacy first. I am deeply sad that everyone was not siding with the President wherein fact, the President is just doing the right thing. PNoy is not going to back down our claim in Sabah, we are just doing the “lumalagay sa tama”. Do you really guys think that it is a good idea to send armed men to Sabah and retake it from Malaysia thru force? Is that really what you want? Do you want the President of the Philippines to be forced to bring our country into a war that could be resolved peacefully thru Diplomacy? Do you want to traumatize our children because of an avoidable war? Is that really what you want? Please think twice.
Please do not get me wrong about the Sabah issue, I want to get it back from the Malaysians. But not this way, not the wrong way. Ang sapilitan at armadong pag-bawi ba sa Sabah ang tuwid na daan? Even a Facebook group Admin said that “nahulog ata sa bangin ang sasakyan natin tungo sa tuwid na daan”. What kind of mentality is that? The President is just avoiding the catastrophe that happened yesterday! Look what happened, 10 Filipinos died on the recent clash. Those 10 Filipinos should still be alive by now if we did the right thing, which is thru the Diplomatic Channel. Now, think of the families and children of those who died because of this avoidable spat.
All that you need to do is to trust your Government, trust PNoy. Come on, its just Malaysia. We stood up against the Chinese and we put our trust in PNoy to resolve that and despite of our poorly-equipped Military, PNoy still maintained his ground. Now you are hating PNoy because of what is happening in Sabah? I am actually proud of him now because if Erap is our President, we would be on a senseless war with the Malaysians now, or probably with the Chinese too.
Let’s use the Diplomatic Channel. I know that we will surely win this case. We got all of the evidences that we need in case that we will face the United Nations. Those evidences are the annual “rent” of the Malaysians to the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo, and other old documents that are in the possession of the government and the Sultanate. We do need another armed conflict. No need for a Muslim-Filipino to die just because their leaders are stubborn and so falsely patriotic.
Aside from that, I am seeing so many negative comments about PNoy’s actions about the Sabah dispute. I am deeply sad about their statements. Do you really think that PNoy would back down to the Malaysians? Hey, they are just the Malaysians?! It is so sad how all of you forgot how tough is the stance of PNoy during our spat with the bigger-and-military-superpower China. He stood against the Chinese, do you really think that he cannot do that to a smaller country like Malaysia? I can assure you that it will be on his next agenda, but not now! All of you who are saying bad things about PNoy, Cory and Ninoy and all of you who are saying that you are anti-Communists, look at your statements and read them again. Dont you sound like a Communist already? Were you saying those statements when PNoy is defending our soverignty against the People’s Republic of China? May we also know your next statement when the 2 brand-new frigates that the PNoy Administration will buy for the AFP arrives, because we want to know if you will still continue to bash PNoy. Would you still continue to say those words if I remind you that the acquisition of the KAI FA-50 Golden Eagle from South Korea was already approved, signed, and soon to arrive?
Again, please think twice. Before you say bad things about the current administration, also think of the good things that he has done for this country. When the Philippine Stock Exchange and our Economy soared high, when the FA-50 Deal was signed, all of you were quiet like Owls. Now that there is a situation like this, all of you is like a Machine Gun that never stops firing criticism again the current Administration. Fcking bias people, a very bad attitude of some of us Filipinos. I think we really have to change that.
I apologize if this current blog is not that organized and doesnt contain any images. This was just my take on the current happenings, this is not really about the AFP Modernization.
