Reena Borromeo Isorena Pres. Duterte once said that he will ride a Jetski to the boundaries of Spratlys and plant the Philippine Flag there. He did more than that. Look, our flag, right there in the heart of China, soaring high!!!
Ruby Ace Not on board a jetski but on board a plane... not just at spratlys but went straight to d heart of china... not just planting a flag but raising it higher than china.... tatak duterte.... diplomacy at its best!!! Wow na wow...
Arr Jay P. Rubinos And the thing is, it's not even Duterte raised the flag but rather China raised it for Duterte and the Philippines... A kind of respect we look for a true ally..
Yn-yn Bayron Hindi naman masama makipag kaibigan nang mga chinese. I've been in China many times. Para lang din silang Pilipinas pero mga hardworking ang mga tao jn. Maxadong Naka fucos sila sa trabaho. Tulad din nang mga Pinoy may bad and good side ang bawat mga tao sa China. I'm proud of my President Duterte sa sinabi nya na "we cannot afford war" hindi natin kailangan makipag giyera kuntra sa china but pwedi natin silang kaibiganin.. I hope Ma buksan ang pananaw nang mga Pilipino na ang pakikipag laban o giyera ay malaking epekto din sa ating ekonomiya. Kailangan ipa mulat sa mga kabataan natin ang advantages at disadvantages nang giyera.
