According to this Inquirer report, “Bayan Muna on Saturday called on the government to protest the increasing presence of Chinese vessels circling the Pag-asa Island (Thitu Island), which it said may lead to heightened Chinese aggression.”
Now ain’t that rich?
On one hand, commies would routinely demonise the Philippine government and Filipino soldiers as their enemies then, on another, would issue idiotic statements like these for the campaign brownie points.
And, indeed, it is all about those brownie points. Turns out commie candidate Neri Colmenares is behind this latest commie ululation…
According to Bayan Muna chairman and Makabayan bloc senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares, there seems to be a coordinated effort by Chinese vessels to narrow and tighten areas that Filipino fishermen and other Philippine vessels can enter in our own territory.
I think Colmenares and his commie comrades in the New People’s Army (NPA) have lost the right to call the Philippine government to take action on whatever “issue” their pea brains come up with to use as fodder in their campaigns.
For that matter, why are they even participating in an election to begin with when their preferred method of taking power is to launch an armed terrorist struggle and install their “dictatorship of the proletariat”?
