How many friends Acquino III and the Philippines have within ASEAN these days? Not many, except Vietnam.

Not Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia.

Sorry, mon ami, I have to disagree. In international relations, there are no permanent friends or enemies, but permanent interests. Only naive, if not stupid, Filipinos consider Vietnam a friend. Some Filipinos probably even think US and Japan their friends. But I am afraid, they have none.

The king pin (Sultan of Sulu Kiram III) of Filipino terrorists who attacked Sabah and killed and dismembered many innocent people there said "We are not terrorists."

Do you remember what Bin Laden said. He and his associates also said "We are not terrorists." They called themselves heroes.

The Philippines govt did nothing. This mastermind of the terrorist attack is still in the Philippines. But govt fails to do anything.

They should arrest him and pass him to Malaysia.

Instead, he becomes the hero of many patriotic Filipinos.

Would Manila do anything in this case?

FYI, speaking of PNoy, I once met a bugao who provided girls to PNoy. According to the bugao, PNoy is a chain smoking card player with a very small penis.

If the PH want the shoals let them have it, it is useless. After one week they would hand it back over to China. The PH can not adminsiter that area nor handle them pirates over there. Why do you think the West is staying out of this mess?
