I support PNP’s return to War on Drugs

After hearing news na nakabalik (na naman!!) ang mga lintik na drug pusher sa kalsada (pakiramdam ko, nagdiwang pa sila), yes, I support Philippine National Police’s return to War on Drugs, pero no more conferences. Simply do it stealthily. And ‘yung konting pulis na magpa-participate, dapat monitored din sila. Sa dami ng pulis na peke, at ‘yung mga hindi pa sumunod sa order na pumunta sa Basilan… alam mo nang mga taksil. Hindi loyal. Wala talaga ang allegiance sa Pangulo. I wonder if iniisip ng mga pulis, na hindi sumunod sa order, na protektado sila ng mga “Boss” nila. Or, iniisip ko kung may ipinaglalaban sila kaya sila nagrebelde. Like, what? Ayaw nilang friendly sa China ang Presidente? Ayaw nila ang mga komunista? Ayaw nila ang what? Kasama ba sila sa isang secret association?

When I saw this news weeks ago, it felt like watching SPECTRE of James Bond, ha ha ha… Ano itong group na ito? Me kasabwat na Korean Mafia? Or Korean intelligence? Or what?

What took place in October 18, 2016?

In the Philippines, a South Korean businessman was killed.

In China, Pres. Duterte and Chief Bato were meeting Chinese officials.

In South Korea, a tablet allegedly belonging to Choi Soon-sil was found, leading to Pres. Park Geun-Hye’s downfall.

All happened in October 18, 2016. Why? Why South Korea? Why Pres. Park Geun-Hye?

I also wondered if the violent rally that took place in front of the US Embassy in October 19, 2016 served as a smokescreen? Because most wondered why it happened in the first place. Most kept on saying “Parang timing na timing na wala ang Pangulo. Bakit sila pumunta doon? Sino nagsabing pumunta sila doon?”

It was curious to read about South Korean’s politics, especially going back to Roh Moo-hyun, the politician who committed suicide, driven to madness.

I never really took notice of him until recently. Years ago, when I heard of the news of him jumping from the top of the mountain, I thought of that as very admirable, someone that would do everything to retain dignity and reputation. A la harakiri. Only recently (because of Mr Jee Ick-joo’s killing) I realized there is something more to this story. To his story.

After seeing this part, alam na. Although it’s from Wikipedia, so one needs to research, as in really research well, about this.

President Roh and Bush in October 2005

Roh was perceived as an anti-American before the presidential race, which was not a handicap during the presidential campaign. Public antipathy to the United States was prevalent in 2002, particularly evoked by the Yangju highway incident, where two South Korean middle school girls were crushed to death by a U.S. Army armored bridge-laying vehicle. The American soldiers involved were tried by a U.S. Army court martial, but the Roh administration continued to demand a South Korean trial, although the incident occurred ‘on duty’ (as part of a convoy) and thus was an American responsibility under the Status of Forces Agreement between the United States and South Korea.

However, except for the policy toward the North Korea, Roh was supportive toward the United States. Roh endeaverd to improve relations with North Korea, becoming the first president to cross the border by foot and meeting Kim Jong-il. He dispatched the Zaytun Division to support the US in the Iraq War by carrying out peacekeeping and other reconstruction-related tasks. Roh explained the deployment as only a peacekeeping mission and claimed that such commitment was required to bring favor from the United States in resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis. He also pursued the KORUS FTA. In 2004, the Roh administration reached an agreement with the US to move out all US forces in the capital to Camp Humphreys, a rural area far away from the capital or major cities, as he deemed the USFK’s presence in the capital unnecessary and harming its reputation and development.[62]

In February 2006, Roh announced that South Korea would initiate negotiations with the United States for a free trade agreement.[63]

In April 2007, Roh presided over an emergency meeting of his aides to discuss the diplomatic fallout from the massacre at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in the United States by a South Korean student, Cho Seung-hui, concerning its negative impact on South Korea-U.S. relations.[64] They were discussing comprehensive measures to cope with the unprecedented incident, including issuance of presidential messages of apology and plans to prevent possible harassment of South Koreans living in the United States.[65] Roh issued two messages of condolence already on 17 April 2007.[66]

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates described Roh as “anti-American and probably a little crazy” in his book titled Duty, and professed astonishment at Roh telling him at the meeting in November 2007 that “the two biggest security threats in Asia were the United States and Japan”.[67][68]

I’ve got more things to say but later. Will go back to my own trivialities for awhile.
