This Is Too Much, Simply Too Much!
Enough is enough. This is simply too much. We have been brutally ostracized as a nation because of the crime of one demented police officer and the incompetence of the police assault team of Manila. We have offered apologies and have bowed down our heads. But the people of Hong Kong and China want more. They disparaged our President and our country as a whole and even insulted our people. This is just too much. Our leaders must stop acting as if we are a vassal of China. When Pinoys became victims of unwarranted acid attacks in Hong Kong did we protest? When tons and tons of illegal drugs are unloaded in our shores from China and when those who were arrested maintaining shabu laboratories came from China, did we protest? And when Chinese illegal poachers raided our Philippine seas taking with them endangered species and when they are peremptorily released by local authorities due to pressures from China, did we protests? When China unilaterally occupied part of The Spratly islands and made incursions as deep as Palawan whom PGMA almost gave to China and Vietnam (presumably for oil exploration) did we protest? When Chinese businessmen regularly engaged in smuggling of all sorts of goods to the detriment of our local industry, did we protest? Let us stop behaving like we are a slave to China and Hong Kong. We have given all apologies and ask for their forgiveness and that is enough. Let us not let them bash our country and our people to the ground.
