It is sad to see that my country has to postest on a day of saddness and use it to burn flags. To think I am a Filipino living in the US and these acts go on still.
I blame mostly the young Filipinos who have no idea what is or was like many years ago. We loved the Americans and we needed the Americans. You all should be ashamed of yourselfs for doing this on this day of all days.
I think one reason that the Philippines will NEVER be a rich country is that the people follow the wrong roads and fail to imporive themselves. If you think you are poor, then you are poor. If you think like I can make it and get a good education, I can make it better for me, my family and my country. Stop blaming the US for YOUR problems.
It is YOU that are the ones that are holding back your future. It is YOU that fails daily to not improve your lives. It is YOU that thinks that everything should be given to you with out an honest days work. It is YOU that can make the difference in making the Phillipines a better country.
So stop burning the flag and look in the mirror. What are YOU going to do today to make your life, your country better today?????????

Well said Ms Padilla.I just wonder why they have big the news coverage over philippine media,even pictures posted on pages of news papers.They are just neglible bunch of few filipino idiots brainwashed by anti american groups.They don't represent majority of filipino people that have good feelings and impression and connections with the US.And they don't even deserve a news article
with picture.

Screw the world, screw religion, screw countries, all sides of the middle east situation. People suck, always have and always will. Give us WWIII, the next pandemic, and we should do the universe a favor and surgically remove the cancer that is humanity.

We should feel ashamed of ourselves for even belonging to the petty and grotesquely flawed human race...

I hate us all

Yes, it hurts when angels deserve to die… but listen to the words long written down:

Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom. Then the father hen will call his chickens home. The wise men will bow down before the throne. And at his feet they'll cast their golden crown. When the man comes around.

Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still. Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still. Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still. Listen to the words long written down, When the man comes around…

I love us all…

If you're full of hate,must be living a very sad life.People who say that are people who live miserable lives,no future,no ambitions,and all depressed in their lives from day one to the next. all they want is the end to themselves and bring down more people with them.

I think you forgot to take your anti depressant tabs.lols.

Who should be blamed with the attack? For sure the terrorists. Even the innocent ones were affected and were even put to death as such fierce tragedy happened couple of years ago. People around the globe, including filipinos who were struggling inorder to bring a greener pasture in their families in the Philippines, were killed as the blood shed of terrorism collided.

Wow.

You have hit the problem right where it is. I get very angry when I see my flag buring or any flag buring as it shows me that the people have smarts. I also get very mad when those in this world blame the US for their problems.

I am smart enough to know that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer when the poor fail to take action to improve themselves in life. I know it is hard in the Philippines to get an education when the family size is so large and most are working off the land or have poor wages.

If those in the Philippines continue to live the way they do, it will never get better for them. There has to be a push by the people to make their lives better and take those chances in doing so.

I respect your honesty; perhaps you are correct the human being is a hopelessly flawed animal. Nevertheless, I do think we are a marvelous creatures it’s what we do (or don’t do) that is despicable.

Wasnt speaking out of hate. More from disappointment and frustration towards humanity. People have created a lot of wonderful things that are almost divine in nature but all the pettyness, selfishness, shortsightedness, evil, and small mindedness just diminishes our achievements.

Think of the best hot fudge sundae you've ever eaten. You enjoy the taste and feel so good and content. And just as you put the last spoon into your mouth, you bite into a bloody toe, band-aid still attached. Suddenly, all the good you've received from that sundae is gone. Years later, you can't help but judge that experience, not on the great flavor, but on the bloody toe that ruined the whole day.

my two cents....

I don't see the world and humanity like you do.
You seem quite a sad person,very gloomy and dark.
Your past experiences speaks about you.
We all have downs and frustrations of different degrees cause by human failure and conduct,but to me I accepted that human race isn't perfect so as the world we live in.
We are given the ability to think and make judgements,decisions to make our life better out of the variation of different circumstances in life.
But I DON'T blame humanity's imperfection and allow it to make my existence doom and gloom for rest of my time life.
I see the imperfection as one positive challenge of this existence.
Perhaps if I meet people like you who seem to be too gloomy ,that's the least I would ever dare associate with,because such projected aura of negativity can be contagious like an infection.
I like people who are happy ,positive in orientation and thinking ,and don't see humanity as total failure.

Then explain to me how building's fall down onto it's own footprint?It was't the impact of the plane's it could not have been the fire's or the so called intense heat there were two people standing in one of the gaping hole's that the plane's had made.Gee did they burn up?So how could it have melted steel.The elevator shaft's were hermetically sealed i.e airtight.So no heat energy could have gotten down far enough.It must have been the poor quality material's sorry no there was a fire that burned two to three storey's in one of the tower's a few year's back did it collapse then.NO.A typical U.S government false flag aimed at getting the world to believe you were victim's to give y'all the green light to begin this crusade.This farce of a war on terror.MURDERER"S!!!That' s how your government has been able to maintain
your "quality of life" so when you don't have oil to run your big SUV's."Our way of life is being threatened".Too bloody right they SHOULD burn your damn flag!!

Yeah, purely an argument of an absolutely twisted mind,need counselling and mental help or more.Believing from information gathered by skeptics as to why the twin towers collapse.With clarity your twisted interpretation of your own religion make you merciless murderers of the innocents even long before the dreadful accounts of 9/11 and calling it holy religious crusade? A religion that preaches love and compassion will turn people worse than fierce beasts known to mankind.Incomprehesible and appalling act of evil perpetuated by people who represents your religion.You sounded like a good specimen of less significance,expendable as a suicide bombing recruit.

those buildings fell, because they were built to hold people not to be hit by planes.

crusade? thats an old word used in the old times. were living in the new age. there's no such thing as crusades anymore.

although, i dont agree with the US trying to force democracy into other nations, these nations have to develop that in their own time frame.

the war we're is a knee jerk reaction. you hit us we hit you back. might not be as simple as that, but thats the way i see it.

burn the flag all you want, it seems that youre enjoying the freedom that you want to abolish. how ironic is that?

Actually those buildings were designed to withstand a strike from the largest passenger plane of the day, which wasn't a whole lot smaller than the ones that hit the building. Secondly no plane hit building 7, yet it collapsed into it's own footprint. Maybe it committed suicide.
