“The distracting blarney coming out of Manila attacking China sounds like it is American-fed propaganda via hysterical warmongers or clowns mining the masses of poverty-stricken uneducated peons. Wake up Melissa, they are trying to provoke war on behalf of America which will be given plausible deniability by paid-for fools in Manila,” is what was said by a British mercenary (probably Mi6 for real) in Ukraine we gave a lift to on Saturday. It’s just chitchat but chitchat that is consistent with what is being said all the way up the ladders, everywhere.
The hoodwinking by Biden of the Philippines has made Ferdinand Marcos look foolish, suggested a doctor who had voted for the Marcos/Duterte combo of corrupt dynasties but now regrets believing the social media campaign lies. Just because Biden is the U.S. President doesn’t erase his long history of scumbaggery or change his spots. He played Marcos like any con artist from the Manila streets.
“Think peace and getting along with your neighbours instead of making war on China because America does not give a damn about how many Filipinos are killed. Washington just wants Manila to start a war against China so Washington can say ‘China started this. We support PH’ while you idiots die,” a U.S. retired General told Melissa.

The Second Thomas Shoal claim of Manila is a giant Sham say scholars. There is no such island. This sham is as bad as the Nine Dash Line because it is based on land masses that do not exist.
The Second Thomas Shoal that Nobody Owns because it is not an island under UNCLOS rules but the corrupt government of the Philippines thinks there is Oil and Gas there and is “fighting China for a piece of the action using a half-sunk piece of old American naval junk“, say Texas oil men.

The world does not have time for this nonsense over oil and gas in the South China Sea. It too is a sham by corrupt politicians thinking for decades they could get rich. Oil and Gas are no longer valued on a planet losing its air and climate to pollution from fossil fuels.
“Remember Pinoys, America is there in our country to occupy the Philippines and start a war with China, a war the Americans hope will never hit their shores but will stop China from becoming an economic powerhouse with its amazing technology that surpasses that of America and its massive local market that has turned the Huawei flagship Mate 60 Pro into the most sought after personal device in America. Here at the United Nations General Assembly, the China technology is the best,” suggests Karinna Angeles, a CSO Human Rights advocate attending the U.N. in New York.
“A better idea for real Filipinos in that country would be to seek a peace and tranquility with its neighbours. Otherwise Philippines will become another Iraq or Ukraine: dead nations,” warns Security and intelligence expert Simon Baldock from Tel Aviv Israel.
Nothing in the Spratys are Philippines’ owned islands. There are no islands. The claim is a fraud. All claims are a fraud according to experts in the Philippines.
Dr. Renato de Castro of the DLSU International Studies Department explains why no one from the ASEAN regions, including China, has ownership over the Spratly Islands in the West Philippine Sea, adding that the Spratly Islands are not really considered as islands by the UNCLOS (UN Conventions on Law of the Sea) and therefore cannot be owned by any country.
America never ceded those or any disputed islands to the Philippines when the former occupier and dictator gave the real estate to the Filipinos. The U.S. did not have their possession because America never got the islands from Spain back in the late 1800s. Stop lying to the people. It’s all fake about greed for oil and gas which is killing the people in the Philippines because the air is filthy and getting worse. That black stuff covering everything is from your air you breathe. Smart people are wearing respirator masks in the Philippines. Everyday those masks go home black. Stop burning fossil fuels.
Manila makes a far-fetched ridiculous claim among nearly a dozen countries claiming the same worthless oil and gas deposits.
That’s why the so-called riches the corrupt Philippines government wants to pocket for its two dynasties are not real. Within weeks the price of oil; and its production will start to plummet as new reports are issued about the decline of Earth’s environment.
“The Philippines suffers from widespread corruption, which developed during the Spanish colonial period. According to GAN Integrity’s Philippines Corruption Report updated May 2020, the Philippines suffers from many incidents of corruption and crime in many aspects of civic life and in various sectors.”
“Corruption is a significant obstacle to good governance in the Philippines. A review of recent literature suggests that all levels of corruption, from petty bribery to grand corruption, patronage and state capture, exist in the Philippines at a considerable scale and scope. Significant efforts have been made to combat corruption, which include putting in place legal and institutional frameworks, as well as efforts by civil society organisations and the media,” says the respected U4 Overview of corruption and anti-corruption in the Philippines
Examples of corruption in the Philippines according to a wide range of American sources too numerous to name, include graft, bribery, favouritism, nepotism, impunity, embezzlement, extortion, racketeering, fraud, tax evasion, lack of transparency, lack of sufficient enforcement of laws and government policies, and consistent lack of support for human rights according to the Gan Integrity report.
Nations around the world would need to immediately stop approving new coal-fired power plants and new oil and gas fields and quickly phase out gasoline-powered vehicles if they want to avert the most catastrophic effects of climate change, the world’s leading energy agency said in May 2021.
Truth about the Philippines. It has some good neighbours. This olive branch and act of heroism by China at sea is a kind and welcome event.

According to the PLA Southern Theater Command Navy and the South China Sea division of the China Coast Guard, the PLA naval vessel Aba was approached by two Philippine fishermen seeking help during its cruise in the eastern maritime zone of the Nansha Islands.
The words from the Chinese Embassy in Manila are instructive of the persistent goodwill, of China toward the Philippines.
“We were moved by hearing about the recent rescue of two Philippine fishermen by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. It’s a story that reminds us of the importance of humanitarian efforts and cooperation between nations,” wrote the embassy in a statement on behalf of his excellency Huang Xilian, Ambassador of China to the Philippines.
“Chinese PLA naval vessel Aba was approached by two Philippine fishermen seeking help when one of the fishermen suffered wounds inflicted by propeller blades and began losing blood.
“The PLA naval medics kindly examined the wound then brought the fisherman aboard their vessel for further treatment, immediately disinfecting, bandaging, and closing the wound writes Xinhau reporter/editor: Huaxia. Photo credit: Pan Yueqiang/Xinhua
“The Chinese PLA also provided the Filipino fishermen with food and medical supplies, including drinking water, antibiotics, and painkillers, before transferring the fishermen safely to the Philippine side,” says the embassy statement.

“This story reminds us that we are all interconnected, regardless of nationality. The rescue serves as an example of what we can achieve when we work together, and we hope it inspires more such acts in the future,” said the embassy in an official public relations statement that oozes goodwill.
