president obama is NO PRESIDENT. hes a dictator. do you see me here crying over things you say? i laugh. you are much funnier than dolphy ever was.
lolllllllll you're a babbling dotard for saying that Obama is NO PRESIDENT. He's no dictator. He can't even pass Congress to approve his budget. If he's a dictator, he will abolish congress and senate so all his agenda will be passed; or just order left and right like the communist.

Who said, you're crying ...I said you're a henpecked husband as you said you have no pension from Uncle Sam so that's the reason why you hate Pres. Obama too much... If I'm funnier than Dolphy..that would be great and earn million. Will look into this.. And you will be a perfect babbling dotard "villain"....lolllll lllllllllllllllllllll

<quoted text>It is a process, so you cannot force the PH president to simply declare anyone guilty. or surrender a PH citizen to Taiwanese authorities. Let the process take its course. You can't dissociate the border issue as well cuz both countries acknowledge its in an overlap zone even though the area is much closer to PH. No one is dragging their feet. Taiwanese demands for a PH president to apologize and call it murder without even an investigation is unreasonable and yet when PNoy did apologize, Taiwan said it was not acceptable and made 4 demands and 11 different sanctions including the ones that adversely affected innocent PH OFWs. I am not a diplomat but I am sure there are different levels of diplomatic responses to incidents like warnings, threats etc but Taiwan went to the extreme right away and put sanctions against innocent PH OFWs aside from banning Chinese tourists to go to PH. This is undeniably and unilaterally called bullying on Taiwanese part because Taiwan holds more aces than does PH. A diplomatic response to an incident has to be made with the intent that diplomatic relations can be repaired at the most prudent period and yet Taiwan chooses to bully the PH since they know PH will never retaliate in the same manner. PH gov't will also not bow down and lose their dignity over this incident. So to those of you who are impatient, sit back and wait for the investigation to conclude - both gov't agreed to release it publicly at the same time this month.
Pres. Ma's 3 days ultimatum was indeed too heavy handed bordering on being hysterical and a tought pill to swallow for Pres. Aquino .

On the other hand Malacanang should have assigned a more experienced envoy who is savvy enought not to mention the sensitive 'One-China policy' as a basis for the negotiations.

On the topic of Obama, the international community is completely disappointed. Last election, he got almost 90% approval rate with non Americans against republican candidate, with high hope from Europe that he will bring US more in line with international opinion but now he has completely gone the other way. Guantanamo human right issue is still outstanding. US is still a hypocrite in many issues as snowden crisis has shown.
basically the world now sees what many of us saw in the beginning.

FRAUD.... INCOMPETENCE.... LIES.... COVER-UPS.... ARROGANCE....

PERSONAL ENTITLEMENT.... RACIST.... ANTI AMERICAN.... SOCIALIST...

thats the short list...

when you see Americans praising Putin you KNOW something is very wrong.

You're too proud to call "my government", yet your hatred of Obama is boiling calling him dictator coupled with your not being able to vote for decade and living comfortably in PH, a country which you hate so much.

Aquino finally did the right thing and Taiwan has responded positively, this episode is almost closed, baring the eventual prosecution of the 8 PCG murderers and establishing a legally binding code of conduct for fishing.

What to take home is a crime is a crime, one cannot hide or tried to justify it with nationalism or any misguided authority. PCG has been known for being pirates in uniform for far too long with Philippines authority refusing to acknowledge it. Fishermen gets killed or kidnapped for ransom which is an important source of income for the poorly paid PCG. While Filipinos may see taiwan's initial reaction out of proportion, it is because it has been enduring the treatment for far too long, time to stop the piracy practice from Philippines government agencies once and for all. It is also time to clean up the law enforcement agencies in Philippines, this can only be positive for Philippines going forward.

I'm 120% bloody disappointed that the Philippines did not show the video when the Taiwanese boat rammed the Flips Coast Guard mate!

Geez , suddenly the Flips can't even do a very simple task which will justify their killing!
