NEWS NOTES
Sharp as serpents gentle as doves


President Duterte if he reads his Bible, should know that dealing with China, he should be “sharp and wise as serpents , but gentle as doves,” because we are treating a bully who does not want to be bullied. It’s all psychological war.

Nobody wants to hold boxing nor missle matches. In human terms, it is a matter of pride vs. humility. No China will show embarrassment.

The chinaman will be firm on his stand. The more one pounds on her about the decision, the more she will snub the decision. One day it will explode. It only takes a “provocateur” to spark a war.

This tension could escalate and might trigger World War III. In our own view, looks like China and Russia will join hands in this world tension. Both are angry with the U.S . The Arabs are also mad at Israel who is a U.S. ally. Arabs can join China. So we little Philips, should be wise, let us calculate oursteps. Let us not do a “hala hala” as dagohoyanons would put it. We are now in the crossfire. That is a fact. We can be crushed anytime.

We should be nice to China. We should be humble in victory. Let us not be part provocateurs. Remember, we are nothing in the international war arena. The best way to treat China now, that she does not want to be embarrassed as being “tough but dull,” vs Filipiinos who are “wise but weak” is that: we should be nice to them.

A loser of sort wants to be treated with importance because that is still cover his weakness. Kulang lang yan sa pansin. We become allies with China in business, not in politics. We offer them tourism hotels to run and manage, let them build the hotels, we offer them our smiles, our hospitable personnel who smile better than them. They will like that. And on the sidelines, we can do business with China. After all, Chinese want business, not war. They may have the numbers but we have sophistication.

Let us offer them eco tourism in the spratleys. They build medical tourism there, and we Filipinos will be their personnel who will treat customers of Asia with top most hospitality nobody can beat.

Let China build hotels there like the Bahamas and we Filipinos make up their personnel. We both earn, we both win!

Don’t rely so much in the U.S. They have their own interests. They will never fight our war. They will just give us weapons and it is we who will get killed, not them.

Bottom line: Let’s make friends, not enemies with China. Period.
