Chino Chikat?

6/14/2011

It’s not that I am also mad with the Chinoys in our country, but I hate what China is doing to us and its helpless neighboring countries. For crying out loud, we are no longer in the era of conquests and wars to gain and conquer territories around the world. Besides, China is one of the countries which has the biggest territories in the world, at kaya nilang i-salpak ang mahigit isang bilyong populasyon nila doon.

 

Nanlumo na nga lang ako nang narinig ko sa news ang apat na matapang na nagbabantay sa installations ng Pilipinas sa Spratlys. Sa interview sa kanila, sinabi nila to:

 

“Kahit ano pa yan, lalaban kami para lang sa kalayaan ng Pilipinas.”

At tinanong sila ulit ni Kara David ng, “Kahit aapat lang kayo? Sa ganito kalawak?”

Sinagot parin ni matapang na sundalo. “Oo.”

 

It is very clear that China is doing the “bullying”, at kapag walang pumalag, eh uunahan nila ng exploration ang Spratlys and the nearby islands in dispute0 Thus having the first taste of the much sought petroleum deep beneath our seas! Pero anak ng teteng naman, kitang kita namang hindi pasok sa teritoryo ng China sa measurement ng nautical miles yung group of islands na yon  at saktong sakto sa boundaries ng Pilipinas ayon na rin sa United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. At sang-ayon ako sa madaling pagresponde na palitan ng pangalan ng West Philippine Sea ang South China Sea, para lumakas ang pag-claim natin sa islands and other resources sa nasabing territory.

Isa pang concern at threat sa Philippine sovereignty ay ang, well, ang madalas na pagsawsaw ng U.S. sa mga isyu ng Pinas. Hindi naman sa masama ang ginagawa nila dahil mas gugustuhin nating may kakampi tayong malakas kesa mangamote tayo sa China kapag hinamon tayo ng away. Biru-biruan nga eh, “umihi lang ng sabay-sabay ang lahat ng Intsik sa mundo eh lulubog ang Pilipinas. Hindi na kelangan ng gyera!”

Pero sa panahon natin ngayon, wala nang LIBRE, lalo na ang kawang gawa. Napaka-evident nyan sa mga hegemonic na bansa sa buong mundo. Wag na tayong lumayo. Alam naman natin ang sitwasyon ng Pilipinas at kung bakit ginawa syang Ally ng mga Kano, dahil sakaling may conflict sa Asian Region ay pwede nilang i-pwesto ang military installments, aircraft carriers, and bases sa bansa – if nasa state of war ang mundo. Maliban pa dyan ang mga babae natin sa probinsya na tina-trato nilang laruan kapag nag-bakasyon ang mga G.I.s sa bansa.

 

Isa pa, hindi natin dapat isipin na tayo ang baby ni Uncle Sam, dahil marami pa syang “babies” na bansa na  ‘di hamak naman na mas ‘cute’ at mas mapapakinabangan ng US katulad na lang ng South Korea. So, ‘wag tayong kampante na sasabihin natin nang buong yabang na “BIG Brother has our back.”

 

Ipagpanalangin na lang natin na hindi na lumobo pa sa mas magulong hidwaan ito, dahil… busy si Uncle Sam sa mga “babies” nya sa ibang parte ng mundo. Nandyan na ang matagal nang South Korea. Ngayon nangliligaw sila sa Libya. May da-moves din sila sa mga Arab countries sa Middle East na nag-aalburoto at ngayon lang yata naka-halata na yang mga dictators lang ang yumayaman sa mga bansang umaapaw ang petrolyo.

 

Basta. Ayokong mapahiya kapag ma i-kwento sa mga magiging anak at apo at mga pamangkin ko ngayon pagdating ng araw kapag nagtanong sila tungkol sa Pilipinas. Mas gusto ko pang sabihin na “pilit kinuha ng China yan, nanindigan lang tayo sa buong mundo na atin talaga  ang Spratlys at Reed Bank”,  kesa naman sa. “Apo, dating parte ng Pilipinas ito. Ngayon, kinuha na sya ng China.” at maghahagilap ako ng friendly na sagot sa kanila sa tanong nilang “eh ang layo naman nyan sa China ah!”

 

Tapos wala ring patutunguhan itong random rant ko. I am powerless. Parang Pilipinas lang, ano?

  1. by the way,also in manufacturing…most of factories HERE get items and supplies from china and assembled mostly by their foreign workers.finnished products are called “made by —–“.

    • The rule of capitalism is that you strive to increase your profit margin at all times in order to grow your business. In today’s world of manufacturing,yes, the tennis shoes sold in the USA and the Philippines are nearly all made in China because of the cheap labor. It is almost slave labor, the pay them so little in China. I am theoretically against it but what can I do? My shirts in my closet…I looked at the labels yesterday…2 were made in Viet Name, one in India, one in the Philippines, one in old Mexico, and 3 in Egypt. Very few products are actually “made in USA” any more because it is cheaper to job the stuff out to foreign countries…like China. Both the USA and the Philippines are looking at some tough economic times, (as if they already are not experiencing this..), in the future as China continues to gain in economic strength while the U.S. dollar weakens and the corrupt government of the Philippines gets worse and worse.

      • it is so sad…maybe because of that ”rule”,all of us are going down including ”them”. maybe we/they have to be more sensitive to others and our environment.and maybe the problem of ”the rule of capitalism” is been abused.in anyways,it is still much better to buy products and services to the ones who is much more sensitive to others and to our environment.definitely NOT china.
        thank you for your reply.

  2. its all about money! where did they get it besides from their people? from the basura product of divisoria and others alike,..to the expensive items from popular malls and stores,.. not to mention their services,.. and from those chinese people who change(or not change)their names with small,medium and big businesses in the philippines.i agree,not all chinese(or half chinese,etc) are bad,but in this case,they also served as a bridge for whatever republic of mao likes…except maybe,if they are truly filipinos. i work abroad,and i dont buy products,services and so on that came from them.you are just giving them money and opportunity to kill you.

  3. The development of economy, military force and other vital pillars of the country will depend on the country’s political leaders and decision to put it into law for implementation. But with the corrupt officials running the government and no political will, it would be very hard to achieve development that we want for the country… God bless the Philippines.

  6. The problem is… the policy makers, political leaders and decision makers in the Philippines were already paid by the Chinese so that everything they legislate and decide for the country will be in favor for the interest of their Master Mao…

  9. Let’s not be racists. There are good and bad Chinese as much as there are good and bad Filipinos. Policymakers are the ones that determine what actions are pursued and what are dropped. So, can we all be united and pray for the enlightenment of all in government, for all whose decisions influence the direction of where we are going?

    • The fact is..the Philippines is a selfish little country with way too much pride. The Philippines first mistake..among MANY..was refusing the United States’ offer for the P.I. to become a territory like American Samoa or Guam. Had it accepted that offer, right after World War II, the Filipinos would be earning DOLLARS today,not pesos. They would be getting 2-week paid vacations from their companies and paid “sick days”,like Americans working for companies in America do.I should know. I worked in the corporate world in Dallas, Texas for over 20 years. Recently,the Philippine government kicked the United States military out of Mindanao, saying they could handle the Abu Sayaf themselves. Really? Where is the proof of THAT? I still remember that American missionary couple, kidnapped by Abu Sayaf, and the only reason the wife is alive and free today is that the United States military went in and gave close “advice” to the Philippine army on strategy and how to rescue her. Her husband,Martin,unfortunately, died in the resulting gunfire but the Philippine army was doing NOTHING to get them out of the hands of Abu Sayaf militants. As long as the Philippine government has a policy of, “we just want your money”, nothing will change. China is taking over and I predict that in 25 years or less, the Philippines will be under Chinese control, both economically and possibly, in the government. China is a very strong nation and does not care one bit what world opinion is of it. Like I said before, the Philippine leadership up in Manila needs to seriously court U.S. favor. Arroyo, despite all her faults, at least had sense enough to buddy up to President Bush, realizing what a strong ally the USA can be. The Philippines needs an ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT or maybe just a nationwide ENEMA!

      • @ steven,…i agree on what you have said.these people are really parasitic.they are everywhere now.to airlines,basic necessities,DFA, manila local government,etc…

  12. The Chinese are merciless. The Philippines NEEDS USA support and if I were President Aquino, I would get down on my hands and knees and beg for it. The sad but true fact is…the Philippines cannot take care of itself…economically, militarily or any other way. Were it not for the OFW contributions to the Philippine economy, I shudder to think where the country would be today. The Philippines let the Chinese business people and Chinese investors IN to the country. Now they are paying the consequences.

  13. Rest assured. The United States will back its allies. There is a treaty between the USA and the Republic of the Philippines. The USA will honor that treaty, which says, that the USA will give military support to the Philippines when and if it is needed. Without USA support, China would crush the Philippines military, with its antique naval fleet and desperately wanting air force, like a bug. Yes, the USA is indebted to China but that will not stop the USA from protecting a weaker country, as we always have.

  14. i have a friend that works in a business owned by chinese people in our country and money got lost for whatever reason, they wont even give him a chance to b able to make agreement on how 2 pay it back , instead they put him to jail by stealling the money. i was hoping there are some gov official 2 help them out. i feel sorry for him…. 🙁

  15. Very sad! Hehehe pati nga bandera ng America Gawang china e! Dito ako sa amerika nakatira pero lahat ng kapit Bahay ko instek na bastos! Parang sobra sa yabang dahil sila na Lang ang nakaka afford bumili ng Bahay — as in cash!!!

  16. Right now I reside in the United States of China. The U.S. owed $843 billion to China, I am not only worried but afraid. I don’t want to be a part of People’s Republic of Mao. Bric with China as one of the member of the emerging market, it’s sad to think of the scenario. What are we going to do?
