Here goes once more the ingratitude of some Filipinos towards the our ally the USA. The most part of these throng are paid youngsters who find it fun to be getting some attention . They take it as a nice way to earn some money no matter who gets hurt, Just a bunch of rowdies, they are. Supporters are of course Filipinos who were denied a vusa in the US Embassy in the past. Nothing more. One can go around anywhere in the islands and see how thrilled most of the villagers are when a white faced good looking young soldier in full uniform passes by in some mission they undertake for our safety from Terrorists. What a way to treat a friend !Activists, my eye. Nuisamce thats what they are mostly ! PHOOY !

I have observed that most Filipinos are even more hospitable to Americans or any white foreigners than to their very own compatriots. Americans have always been welcomed anywhere they go here in our country. It is natural that the young boys resent it because the girls easily fall for a good looking American boy. But hate has bo place in it. But of course after a bout of drinking at the Bar, there are always the drunken youngsters that get into trouble, much the same as our fellow Filipino lads anywhere. There are bad Americans and there are bad Filipinos. Both are human beings.

The Media always gets to gain in any event that concerns any kind of unintended ACCIDENT LIKE THE MINESWEEPER RUNNING AGAROUND. THEY LOVE TO SPREAD RUMORS AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS TO SELL MORE PAPER EVERYDAY. MOST BUSINESSES ARE DIRTY IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE ANYWAY. SEXY NEWS, DIRTY NEWS OR MURDER AND KILLINGS ARE THE FOOD OF NEWSPAPERS. They do not care if anybody gets hurt. Selling Papar is all they need.Young journalist who just got out of school in his first job are usually responsible for exagerrated reports. Tone down please. They love WARS !

That's how sensitive some americans are... they see 50 anti-US protesters infront of the Embassy and they react as though it's 50 million. Or maybe the TS is severely cross-eyed?

It's when their politicians are start complaining that gets me pissed. Miriam Santiago was all about scrapping the VFA until that big typhoon hit and they needed our help and she shut up only to take it up again once we were gone saving thousands of lives.

Yes Don, I am with you. These protesters are mostly hypocrites and a bunch of pseudo patriots who love to flaunt their love of country but are actually one of them who fleece the People of their money thru pork barrel and good for nothing projects. They ought to be hung. lol

Protesters are always young unemployed persons who want to get in the News. Outside of that they are essentially a nuisance and must be driven out with tuncheons,.....bahhhhh !
