Haha! Let the Games begin! Happy Fourth of July, y'all!
PLDT Chair Manny Pangilinan told an audience in Chicago today that "Ethics and Morality are good for business." So, I wonder when PLDT/Smart will quit paying the New People's Army extortion money not to bomb his cell phone towers, a protection racket that seems to have been imitated now by Muslim separatists down south and even the Taliban in Afghanistan.
I think the 1987 Philippine Constitution speaks loudly and clearly for itself on the matter of nuclear weapons:
Section 8. The Philippines, consistent with the national interest, adopts and pursues a policy of freedom from nuclear weapons in its territory.
On the other hand, Miriam Coronel Ferrer in her opinion piece today decrying the generous help extended to thousands of Filipinos by the crew and officers of the USS Ronald Reagan, was really talking loudly and clearly for the CPP-NPA, who are high and dry in the Netherlands as their leader continues to face a murder investigation by the Dutch. But he does not lack for surrogates willing to make the silliest arguments against our national interests.
