Question 326 by JCpilipinas Question 326 by JCpilipinas
Luzon: I have deep respect for North Korea's efforts to abolish US Imperialism. People may think their effort is futile, but do remember that the strongest weapon people have is their belief and faith. Remember that Lapu-lapu defeated Magellan's troops, who were equipped with armors and guns, with mere swords and wooden shields.

We have been on opposite sides of the war, but that was because the Philippine president who controlled over us back then had strong alliance with the US. Truth be told, the communist movement in the Philippines was also strong back then, due to political tension. The armed movement was strongest in rural areas, particularly in Luzon and southern Mindanao; while the seat for activism was situated in Manila. Basically, the progressive mass in the Philippines were also fighting for what Koreans were fighting for, freedom from the evil of US Imperialism, feudalism and neo-colonialism.

As much I I want the Philippines to remain neutral about this war, it's highly unlikely. Our country is geographically in perfect location for US bases. In fact, there are already US bases proposed to be set-up here, AGAIN. The past few months, we've also witnessed more and more US military activity in our territory, much are unknown to the general public. These military activities are done because of the Visiting Forces Agreement between the US and Philippine government. Now seriously, if ANYONE uses the VFA to ship USPH, I will slap you, and ask Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio to haunt your dreams. The VFA is nothing but a one-sided military "partnership". It has nothing good for our country and is an insult to our national sovereignty. Remember the Tubataha incident where a US ship got stranded while threading the shallow waters of the Sulu sea? Well, that ship damage kilometers wide of coral reefs which were home to a lot of marine life that locals depend on for a living. And because of the VFA, the US has an excuse to get away with it since it states that the Philippine territory is free to be used for military exercises. And how much more one-sided can this agreement be? The Sabah incident, where Filipino people have been fighting with their lives to claim the lands of Sabah (I still love you Malaysia, we'll still try settling this peacefully. I'm just trying to prove my point.^^;) and yet the US showed no support and even condemned the actions of the Royal army.

Now as one of the representatives of the Philippines, which, as you all know, have a LOT of Filipino workers everywhere, I AM concerned for the well-being of my people. Which is why I am thankful that North Korea issued a request to have all foreigners in SK leave the country in case war breaks out. This clearly shows that what NK is doing is not an act of terrorism, it's just a war against Imperialism and to retain their freedom from it.

CJ: I'm supposed to be retiiiiiiired from activism.

BTW, does anyone here speak Bisaya, Cebuano or any language spoken in the Visayas region and can help me with translating a few phrases over the weekend? Just note me, thanks~

Read "Our Mendicant Foreign Policy" by former Sen Claro M. Recto. He basically was saying the same thing of us in the 1950s. (you can google it.)

To think little's changed since … :la:

I am not really supporting communists, but i think the US is the real provocator here. Just look at it. North Korea blows up one nuke, and the world went instantly mad. The US blows up thousand of nukes!

CJ: Wait, I don't think it has even been confirmed that NK had any nuclear weapons. As far as I know, the US is just saying that NK is threatening to bomb the whole world to justify their military presence over the area and their wage of war.

Unfortunately, if you mention any of this publicly, you'll be branded a "dirty Communist", "Chinese puppet", "traitor to national sovereignty" or something along those lines. I see such comments all over the Internet already.

CJ: Hehe.

I get that a lot~..

Also, most progressive party lists are being harassed by COMELEC and bullied into getting disqualified.
mirisu92 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013  Student Filmographer
Well, recently the Supreme Court seems inclined to disagree with Comelec a lot - upholding disqualified candidates who actually had good reason to be disqualified, for example. o_O

I wonder though how they'd react to this.

Oh God Philippines... don't let USA use you for this conflict..
USA has used Indonesia for invading Timor and we regret everything and has to pay the price of our ignorance..
Timor lost hundreds of lives just because Australia and Indonesia believes in USA's "commies are evil" propaganda.
We have bloodied our hand and lost our dear brothers and sisters of Timor because we listen to USA talking.
No matter how many apologize we offered they won't bring back the Timorese killed.
It's sad and hurtful..

and now USA stabs our back by calling Muslims as savages and terrorists...
Why did we listen to USA in the first place... :iconfacepalmplz:
I hope Philippines won't be used by USA to repeat the same mistake Indonesia did. The guilty are heavy and the casualties...
Oh God... USA please stop it...

I really hope USA would open a peaceful negotiation to communist countries. Though I don't think USA want to resolve this peacefully, after all USA declared that this century will be USA's "Pacific Century". So much for wanting to monopolize the whole Pacific, including Pacific Asians which include communist countries like China, North Korea, Russia, etc.
I shall pray that Philippines will come out victorious and may war will never happen in the Pacific...
May ASEAN won't get dragged into all of these conflicts.

Will USA government stop his war-mongering?
After all the Cold war, Vietnam War, Korean War, Timor invasion, Iraq invasion... it's never enough for USA government.
We're begging you good American citizens, please stop this war-mongering habit of your government..
USPH just rubs me the wrong way after the Tubataha incident and Clark military base incident. :icondoublefacepalmplz:
I know the USPH fans were mostly kids and young teenagers but pleaaaaseeee, have some political awareness of the current situation.

Sorry CJ, you can never quit being an activist :iconbigheplz: it's in your blood.
Hey, who knows you can be the next Jose Rizal and Bonifacio, bringing awareness from your drawing and such :D

CJ: Well, uh....I think the US is beginning to see the fall of their country from their superpower status. And to at least lengthen their era more, they try to leech out from the Asia-Pacific area which, I think, gives an image of a promising growth in economic power.

And uhh....I'm an insult to the names of Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio.

USA tricked Indonesia too?! I.. I can't believe it.

I'm sorry that Indonesia got used by America..

USPH... I have a friend who loves USPH and plays a role as Manila (I played a role as Tokyo) and she just love this USPH 'Marry Me' Fanfiction

I felt like I'm the only roleplayer in the group who doesn't ship USPH

Plus, I agree with the next "Rizal" and "Bonifacio" Thing. But don't forget Juan Luna~
