This is the most welcomed news for many of us here in these Islas de Ladrones. I hope it will discourage all the criminals and corrupt people abounding in our cities. Of course there will be some unsatisfactory comments but this is better this way in the long run and back to HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

The Papers today are filled with the three scandals that has finally been resolved really fast,. The closing of the Oil Dapots that almost flooded the Pasig and Manila with foul odor, the Middle East Sex Scandal results and the sacking of NIA Chief Antonio Nangel.Anotherr case needing attention is the Ampatuan offer which sounds their acceptance to guilt ( we all know they are). Good job Mr. President, we love you for a job well done again.

It is also the fault of the former Chinese Filipino Mayor Lim because Atienza his predecessor wanted to remove the Sta. Ana Oil Depot but when Lim became the Mayor he did not do anything to pursue what Ateinza wanted.

I am not a military expert but a strong armed forces could be a deterrent because of the consequences in confronting it or it could be a reason for an enemy to attack strongly. I like to think it as a deterrent. It would be suicide for any country to conduct an all out war against USA.

"The Philippine navy, whose resources and battle capabilities are no match for China's growing naval might, has yet to formally present its 10-billion-peso (S$291.5 million) base development plan to President Benigno Aquino."

why make an announcement that hasnt been approved? the famous flip go-between strategy?

Not the right time to tease him he is feeling edgy. It looks like there's going to be a final confrontation between 2 powers. It's now soon or never as china is gaining power every minute. If they are being rouge nation right now in a few more years they are going to be much harder to handle.

American presence is much better than Chinese presence, no matter what others think. For now, it is all a Political maneuver for both. Neither side do not want our world to become a pile of radio active dust.//// LOL

libs took control of American society via the courts long ago. mid 70s?

hasnt been a real man as president since JFK. Kennedy backed down Khrushchev and made him eat his words badly.

all the serious problems the US has and obama gets behind abhorrent sexual behavior and champions it. says volumes for his character doesn't it? if obama champions bestiality next , then there wont be any more meat on Americas tables. if he says child porn is ok, then GML will be at the forefront of the industry.

ten more minutes in the chair with putin and i think putin might have kicked his azz. he hates him that much and cant hide it.

the obama puppet couldnt find any words w/o his speech writers to save him. and they didnt save him.

the looks on their faces are for history. man vs. boy. thats what it looks like.

it was white liberals that put the puppet in the office only because they wanted to show conservatives how it would feel. now the whole country knows how it feels and the whole world too.

i hope they are all happy.

Far from it sir/madam... I did not really wish to imply that fact, but whether we like it or not,...nature does it's work without any doubt and the consequence comes soon enough. There is nothing demeaning about it, is there? I have no objections !

We clash AGAIN AMC,...just because Mr Obama sometimes differ fro the ioinions of Whird dies not mean he is against them nor giving America a bad name "...as far as my memory can remember , Obama is the first colored man to become President of the US and that makes him extra special . He is a man motivated by people who only sees the colored people as waiters, porters or Tap Dancers back through the years. Obama has shown himself far above those expectations, but those who did not vote for him see differently. I voted for him and will do so AGAIN IF HE RUNS AGAIN.

PRES. OBAMA, LIKE MANDELA OF SOUTH Africa, will always be a name to remember" ...They are the two first black President of two predominantly white nations in the World. Isn't that something ? The comments of AMC does not seem too clear about Obama's capabilities and makes him appear not knowledgeable enough to be a President of the United States even after being voted again for a second term. AMC portrays himself above the experiences and intellect of Obama as proven by the majority of Americans who wanted him back again. ha ha ha The nerve of AMC !
