I am talking of course about Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana’s statement that the defense department will file a diplomatic protest against China if it can be established that there is indeed militarization over the Fiery Cross Reef (Kagitingan Reef) in the South China Sea (SCS). 327 more words

People averse to President Rodrigo Duterte as a person and as the country’s leader may be wondering why they can’t put him down.

Rodrigo Duterte, who will head the launching of a nationwide movement called “Tapang at Malasakit Alliance for the Philippines” at the Marquis Events Place in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City on Monday, Oct. 392 more words
