West Philippine Sea: War is not the only option
Duterte is trying his best to sell the idea that the only option to address China’s illegal encroachment in the West Philippine Sea is by going to war. It must be the Fentanyl, old age or both that have addled his brain yet again. He conveniently ignores and forgets that we’ve already dealt with the issue and not one bullet was fired nor not one soldier was sent to battle. We didn’t send soldiers to the disputed islands, something our soldiers would bravely do, unlike Duterte who made a promise to ride a jetski during the campaign only to confess he just said it to gain votes, we sent lawyers to The Hague where we waged battle in an international legal forum and we won! That’s how a modern state behaves. Not like the barbaric and moronic idea of going to war.
