(Topic: President Aquino Should Fly to Saudi Arabia and Pay His Last Respects to King Abdullah)

I totally agree. President Aquino should visit and pay respect to the late Saudi King Abdullah. Beyond the system of government the KSA has help the Philippines in general in many times of economic difficulties by employing large number of Filipinos who can not find jobs in the country. The Kingdom has also been the stepping stone of a lot of Filipinos who had move on further afield for what ever reasons. Many have survive economic difficulties, educate and fed their family by the proverbial saying "Katas Ng Saudi" :-D RIP King Abdulla .....Al Salam Malaykum

Ed sez-: " Sending a cabinet secretary, however well-qualified he may be, unfortunately does not send the right message. Published 1/27/2015" Isn't it obvious to see that the present admin does seem to appreciate and prioritize foreign relation with other countries (except for cozying up to Uncle Sam) that will benefit the Philippines? I remember during the time of GMA that she travelled to the Middle East including Saudi Arabia to at least secure stable oil supply for us, see to the welfare of Filipino OFWs and for just plain having good relation with Islamic countries to help in mediating in our internal squabble with Islamic separatists!! I believe that even Imelda did the same thing for the good of RP! What is the Aquino admin thinking ?!?

It's, then, only fitting not to say mandatory for the President to show up with other world leaders in this solemn occasion. Show them how grateful we are for all the employment the Filipinos have enjoyed all these years.

Most western dignitaries extended their condolences & even praised the late king for his many reforms in Saudi Arabia. King Abdullah was a progressive leader & he even helped an accused OFW with a sizable monetary contribution for his release. Western leaders made time on their busy schedule to attend the funeral. Even Pres Obama cut short his official visit in India to go to the funeral. The big question now is..what was Pres Aquino thinking & how come it was not a priority to attend the funeral of the king of Saudi Arabia? People wants to know the real reason & the real answer. Be that as it may, he must have been doing something exceptional to pass up the opportunity of being with world leaders in this occasion. It's highly regretable & very questionable indeed.

Should Pres. Aquino have been a part of the funeral entourage in Saudi Arabia? Sure. He should have been, but there must have been a good reason why he couldn't. At least, the Philippines sent a high ranking official for the occasion. Remember, USA made the same faux pas with the Paris incident and Obama got represented by a mere ambassador. Things can happen even with an array of advisers to help in decision making. Yes, we can criticise and we can state our opinion, pro or con. But in the end we leave the government to continue with its primary purpose, to govern our country.

Pres. Aquino should have gone to the funeral but the Philippines is not a rich country and the Philippines must have spent a lot with the Pope's visit and for him to fly to Saudi will cost millions again, for sure, so if that's the reason, (it might not be the best decision) but it's quite understandable. Remember, USA really made a faux pas of the Paris incident being a rich country and still failed to attend the unity march in Paris and sent only an ambassador in Obama's place. At least, the Philippines sent a high ranking official.

Aquino must have some aversion for funerals. Remember that Transgender who got killed? Some people panned Aquino then too for not being present. And in the present case it's the funeral of a king. So it does not matter who gets buried, King or Transgender. Aquino just does not like going to funerals.

Noong panahon ni Erap ay nirapido na ang mga kaaway ng pamahalaan sa Mindanao. Napakatagal ng panahon na mga kaaway ng gobyerno ang mga Abu, MLNF at iba pang may ipinaglalaban. Ngayon ay lalong naging maalala at ngkaroon na ng kanyakanyang territorio at handang pumatay kung lulusubin ang kanilang nasasakupan ng mga sundalo at pulis. Bakit hindi sila nauubos. Mga taga Indonesia at iba pang kapanalig nila sa ibang bansa ay tipong nakakapasok sa ating bansa. At hindi yan mangyayari kung mahusay magbantay ang mga namamahala sa lugar. Kaya Hindi nakakatiyak na ang pakikipagkaibigan ay totoong tunay sa pamahalaan. Magkakalahi pa rin sila. Kaya, sila-sila pa rin ang magdadamayan sa pagpatay sa mga napasok sa mga inaangkin nilang lugar. Mahirap magtiwala.k

The reasons named by this Editorial why Aquino should have attended the King's Funeral in person but did not, are enough to cite Aquino for another one of his many missteps. This time diplomatically. But there are so many reasons why he did not. And unless we hear from him why he merely sent his DFA Secretary it will just be a matter of conjecture. His silence however, will be construed to his disadvantage.

Ed commented "Aquino's detractors quickly point out that his chosen color, yellow, aptly describes him and his administration. " It is more than just the issue whether he is yellow bellied or not--- what is glaring is the seeming lack of recognition and prioritizing important issues and events that will greatly affect and influence the welfare of the Philippines. Those leaders of bigger and stronger nations (i.e. Obama, Cameron etc) are there with full appreciation of what their attendance will mean to the relationship with Saudi and other middle east countries. Aquino, simply put, failed to appreciate the gravity of the situation-- he is once again caught Noynoying! Simply put-- it can be construed as a diplomatic faux pas of the first order!!

Why would a lazy a*s, cigarette puffing, PsP addict Penoy waste such a lousy time flying over to the KSA and pay homage to the late Saudi king? He has no business spending some serious time for the Yolanda super howler victims and commiserate with their plight, let alone alleviate their current predicament and pitiful status...he is too BUSY finding ways who to blame for the Next Big Fiasco...and guess what? His supposed to be a legacy concoction of a BBL, - which is a Total SELL OUT of our National integrity is hanging in the balance of uncertainty - teetering on the brink of unconstitutionality, just like his "in good faith" concoction of a monster of a beast - DAP.

Other than the PNL did anyone really notice the absence of Aquino? He is in his last months. The negative consequences of his absence, if any, will fall on his successor. Since the departed Monarch is reputed to be filipino-friendly Aquino should be asked to explain. But I don't think Saudi Arabians will take the absence of Aquino as an affront. I do not think they even noticed his absence because all the A-List world leaders were in attendance. If Aquino's absence is taken as a negative it will just be one of the many demerits he got through the 6 years of his term.

The author seems to have too much expectations from our president. The absence of a president in any gatherings or celebrations should not be given a big issue. He's a president and has the right to decide if to join or attend to any occassions. Why we need to make an issue?. The only thing we should do is to cooperate with the president to make our country beautiful on to whatever means. If we are an engineer, doctor, janitor, teacher and other professions, do our missions as Godfruit. Do not focus on the mistakes of others. PNoy is doing his work for our benefit. Give him courage and not too much criticisms.

If it was Aquino who died would you take note of who DID NOT attend his funeral? Would you have expected the Royalties of Arabia to be in attendance? After all the people maintaining & cleaning their homes may be Filipinos. Are we to think that because of Aquino's non-attendance Saudi Arabia will have less use for Filipino OFWs? Aquino's non-attendance is at worst, a GAFFE. But he has committed so many. So what's the big deal? Of course we can expect the Aquino bashers to take this incident & blow it out of proportion. But that's neither here nor there. At least it's not Plunder.

Re: King Abdullah..It is the prerogative of the President to choose the person who can represent the PI in the death of the Saudi King.It is not necessary for him to be present there as he has more pressing engagements here in Manila.e.g. have a conference with the DSW on the ten thousand street children. It is a blackeye on the Government..The housing of these street kids is a priority..maybe more strict in implementing parental rules. Parents should be responsible for their children. If not have them adopted. Hiding these children in resorts during international conferences in the P.I. is not the answer.

That these Arabs display some benevolence for Filipino OFWs should not be construed as a one sided favor that they give to Filipinos. The fact is Filipinos with their high education and smarts help their countries as much as they help the PHL. They need Filipinos as much as Filipinos need the jobs they do for them. Where else will they get domestics with college degrees to clean their toilets and allow themselves to be abused? If Aquino made a blunder by not going to the Funeral personally let's us not interpret that as adverse to the WORTH of Filipino OFWs. Especially the Domestic employees.

Obama did not join the anti-terrorists rally in Europe, I guess there is no need for Aquino to personally pay respect to somebody "hindi naman niya kaano-ano". Reminds me of our barkada's philosophy when at yebo trenta, why we were not married yet our response was "bakit ka magpapakain sa hindi mo naman kaano-ano". If girls are around would response "mga loko-loko kayo!". lol. It was fun.

Re. Funeral of Abdullah..I don't believe The Pnoy absence ay the funeral would send any kind of message to the saudis..The RP has sent millions of OFWs over to Saudi Arabia, I believe that is a sign that the PI wants to continue doing business with them. That 2.3 million Riyals that the Saudi KIng gave to that Saudi does not mean that the Ph President has to go here for his funeral. The Saudis would understand that the 100 million Filipinos need the President more than the appearance in a funeral.

Why wait for the Pope to tell you what to do to turn yourselves around for good. Your bishops and priests could have said the same words (or didn't they) many times in church services. You did not put it to heart, did you, because you don't trust or take seriously the brown-skinned clergy. Words coming from them don't carry much weight for you trust or believe. I wonder why. Anyway, all you so-called faithful summoned him and he heard your call. Now the ball is in your court; keep it rolling.

To a narrow mind it is easy to say that the purpose of papal visit is to say:" HI to his folks." We have to remember that the Pope is seen as a shepherd to some 1.1 billion Christians . As a shepherd it is his role to see that the sheep are not only fed but have not gone astray. As one blogger has written: "To inspire the hearts of men. And bring them faith and peace, and most importantly hope, in these bleak times." When people get older they say stupid things.

Someone who has no heart on bishops and priests wrote: "What I hate is there HYPOCRISY and continual exploitation of the ignorant people who believe that these bishops and priest represent god or are agents of god". Yes they are agents of God. We are all agents, missionaries if we preach God's words. Only Jesus is perfect. Who told you that all the people on earth is perfect? incl. you?. As always reminded .... "not all bishops and priests" disobeys. If you think you cannot accept them, just put in your head what they preached. Hear and put into practice. Give them peace. Nothing will lose. Your hatred will kill you.

When [someone] says : "You don't need to be a historian to understand that Catholicism, or the 'spiritual conquest' was the Spaniards,' [who murdered Jose Rizal] greatest colonial legacy..." he missed the boat that should have taken him to the land of the wise but instead he drowned in the sea of ignorance. Rizal was never murdered. Execution was not a crime against the state if ordered by the state. It is legal.

Someone said that Pope Francis was just "lipsing" when he mentioned corruption and overpopulation (breeding like rabbits). The Pope has seen the faces of corruption and the ill effects of overpopulation and the consequences of both of them. Both fuel poverty, homelessness, prostitution, drug abuse, etc. The Pope is not that naďve. Lipsing is an act where the lips simply move with no sound coming out from the vocal cords of a singer but from a pre- recorded song.

[To someone]: My opinion is that as long as Joseph Estrada can still move his middle finger he will run for President. And if & when he wins his physical condition would be irrelevant because the country will be DEVOURED by his Family (Jinggoy especially) & friends in the UNA Party. Also all these Pork Barrel Crooks will be set free by acquittal or pardon. All this will happen immediately because Erap might die of old age. And that is the only instance where his age will become relevant……to the criminals.

Duterte for President? I don't think he'll be a good president. We need also a man with fear to kill anyone. We need a president abiding the law. A president who speaks decency. Who among from other countries speaks harshly? Remember, not all Filipinos are to be disciplined like thieves and killers. If to be represented in other countries, what is the impression? "killing in his hands" or "killing you softly"?

Joker Arroyo, the erstwhile Senator suddenly issued a press release criticizing the investigation of the Binays. He probably was technically correct in his assessments but the question is, when he was in the Senate what exactly did he do about the scandals & corruptions that happened almost daily in Gloria Arroyo's term? All he did then was collect his salary and maintained a tomb-like silence. This is another major player in the EDSA 1 "revolution" who simply faded into irrelevance & never made a mark.

Junjun Binay wanted to show his arrogance by not recognizing the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee. Why ignore the invitation if he thinks he's honest and have not violated anything against the law? He should be knowledgeable that questions in court sometimes touch egos and should accept whatever asked. The importance is the evidences. If Mayor Binay is educated in line of his case, I think the case moves faster and be acquitted if innocent. But, he showed himself as a powerful mayor and untouchable. No way! Filipinos are waiting if you are a thief ... if you are in connivance to make people suffer. Prayers of the faithful is powerful. Thieves must pay... if you are!

My recommendation for our soldiers, go and kill the enemies but be sure there's an accompanying helicopters or airplane to guide or support. What I was wondering, the police, armies knew the places, the hideouts, why they can't do the bombings? If they have done for from the start, we can save more lives from the soldiers in the government. If bombings are not enough, fire them with fire till the hideouts totally paced out. Do they think this is ok? That's only my script as Erap the leading man of Someone... Serious.

After the Pope's Visit: What We Filipinos Now Must Do

e put on a good show for Pope Francis. He loved it; we loved it; the world loved it. Now the long and painful task of bringing about the changes the pope asked for begins. Start with the Philippine Catholic Church. It should refocus its efforts towards the poor. As we wrote in previous editorials, many priests and bishops see themselves as members of the rich and privileged class. They feel more at home in country clubs and dining in expensive restaurants, than they do helping the poor who live in the squatter communities that dot most cities in the Philippines.

Pope Francis Admonishes Pinoys to End Scandalous Inequalities

We had a feeling this was coming. In his first major speech in the Philippines, Pope Francis called for an end to 'scandalous inequalities' in the country. And what better example of a scandalous inequality is there than that a preposterously ridiculous wedding of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera which was officiated by 8 bishops and 7 priests. In addition, this crass wedding featured a 12-foot high wedding cake, a 2-million-peso wedding gown with an exaggeratedly long train that seemed to go on forever...you get the picture.

An Open Letter to Pope Francis; Please Read It Before Coming to the Philippines

Dear Pope Francis, your much anticipated visit to the Philippines is just a few days away. We expect that you will have been adequately briefed about the Philippines by the time you arrive. However, there might be a few things your Vatican handlers might have missed—or intentionally "forgot" to mention to you so we hope this letter reaches you in time for your historic visit. Before anything else, welcome! Published 1/9/2015
A Dingdong Fancy Wedding for a Third World Country

What is it with us Filipinos? We are a country of "all flash and no substance." Case in point: This ridiculously lavish wedding between two so-so movie stars that sought to outdo even the most "royal" of royal weddings. What was the whole point of this crassly extravagant display? Lest anyone forget, the Philippines is still a Third World country. And many, many squatter's homes (if you can call them "homes") do not have running water or even a toilet! Published 1/4/2015
Vice President Jejomar Binay’s Aguinaldo

Money received from benefactors during Christmas in the Philippines is called “aguinaldo”, a term and practice imported from Mexico during the Spanish colonial period where it now refers to the annual Christmas bonus given to employees. In the Philippines, it is now generally used to describe monetary gifts given by all benefactors, including godparents and employers. Published 12/25/2014
Do Filipinos Want America on Their Side or Not?

Given the Filipino penchant for "dramatics," not to mention the circus atmosphere that inevitably encompasses any event of even minor significance, one can hardly blame American government officials for refusing to hand over US Marine Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton over to Philippine authorities. The intriguing question in all this however is why some Filipinos are so insistent on having custody over the accused. Published 12/19/2014
Today's American Police Force Leaves So Much to be Desired

Long gone are the days when communities all across America looked up to the police officers who patrolled their streets and kept their neighborhoods safe. For cops back then it was a calling—almost like the priesthood—and those who answered that calling were brave, noble, larger-than-life individuals who kept Americans safe. Published 12/14/2014
