« Why do we solicit the opinions and half-baked analyses of foreign observers when they aren’t even stakeholders in this political problem?
If and when the dust of this political war settles, these international media outfits can just as easily offer a half-meant apology and say, « We thought Duterte was going to be a dictator as your VP had said. So, we helped you remove him. It turns out that he wasn’t but he certainly had all the capacity to be a dictator. »
And we, the Filipinos, will be left to pick up the pieces of a broken republic. » ~Bryan Ng Co
