FVR mourns death of US Sen. Inouye

By

Daniel Inouye

MANILA, Philippines–Former President Fidel V. Ramos on Tuesday expressed sadness over the death of US Sen. Daniel Inouye, whom he described as “not only a good personal friend, but also a great friend of the Philippines and the Filipino people.”

“The death of Senator Dan Inouye … is a great loss, especially for veterans whether of World War II or younger. He was a hero to all of them, including myself,” Ramos told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“That’s why it’s really unfortunate that Dan Inouye is now gone,” he added.

Although Inouye did not directly help them during the popular Edsa I uprising in 1986, Ramos said the American senator’s “feelings were always for the soldiers who are doing their duty.”

         YW he was a senator about 48 years and trying to overcome the mcduffy act was his goal…passing that act so as not to be compelled to honor all those brave filipino servicemen who signed on to fight alongside the americans was the most deplorable underhanded way of saying ”thank you” they could have done,,,funny,,,,28% ofw republican 24% democrat….yet BUSH refused to pay the filipono twice by not signing the senators bill and OBAMA first act of office was to sign it
