    They want the government to take the US to court? What kind of idiots would suggest that? Even a dog will not bite the hand that feeds it!

    The party-lists should be doing what Pamalakaya is doing to expose all who are involved in this coordinated effort to remove the country’s national security.

    sisirain na naman tayo ng imperyalistang u.s. sa mismong bayan nating pilipinas

    huliin na mga u.s. navy na yan kung hindi pa tumakbo tulad ni mcartur ww2
    kompiskahin na rin yang barko tulad sa mga intsik switik

    ang pagsira ng barko ng imperyalistang navy sa tubbataha
    ay singtulad ng pagsira ng imperyalistang u.s. sa bayan nating pilipinas

    u.s. – kastila war 1898
    pilipino – u.s. war 1899-1912 1+ million pilipinos died
    u.s. – japan war ww2 nasira pilipinas, 1 million pilipinos died
    u.s. – korea war 1950-1953 100+ pilipino casualties
    u.s. – vietnam war 1960s-70s used philippines as staging area, pilipino casualties

    u.s. – tsina war 20?? modern weapons will result in higher casualties

    gerra every 20 years ang imperyalista sa bayan natin

    hindi pa kasama dyan ang mga kinulimbat nilang gold at ibang mahalagang metal
    pag kalbo sa kabundukan kaya tayo binabaha ngayon
    parity rights na ginamit pang darambong
    etc etc

    ang agenda ng imperyalista ay gawing base na naman ang bayan natin
    sa gerra nila sa pinagkakautangang intsik switik
    na tayo na naman ang tatamaan

    habang sitting pretty sila unscathed thousands of miles away

    ang barkong ito ay another imperialist psywar operation
    to break down pilipino resistance to recolonization

    the recovered drone was another similar psywar operation of the imperialist
    yung sa scarborough, tonkin gulf incident style pakana din nila

    DEMOLISH VFA – PALAYASIN MGA IMPERYALISTA

    ng hindi gawing bases ang bayan natin ng imperyalistang u.s.
    sa napipintong gerra nila kontra hegemonistang intsik

    magpalakas ng pro pilipino defense kasama mga kapit bayan natin
    para pigilin ang intsik switik sea grabbing

    The damage on the coral at Tubatha Reef is miniscule in comparison with the damage that is being caused by dynamite fishing and coral poaching.

  • ano ikaw

    Which country is the force of good in this world?

    China? Russia? Iraq? Iran?

    Masagot nga ng mga gagong militante.

    DOJ, charge these militants of treason and public disturbance.

    THEY ARE A MINORITY less than 1% of the population.

    SO DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM. LISTEN to the 99.99% that support the US alliance!
