Overall, I am not too optimistic that the Philippine govt would simply walk US out of the door. Duterte is a smart politician and a mafia-natured manner dealing and solving problem the hard core way. Those drug traffickers in Philippine will share some limelight how he destroy their territory rights and burnt them into ashes. Very much deviation from democracy doctrine or to human rights activists, he had a sin in his hand. |
In managing SCS, now Duterte is dealing with a mighty giant, i.e. Chinese govt & people. He is engaging them with more caution and seek empathy and sympathy from all grounds that the Filippinos are still thriving to lift off poverty zone. By telling the Chinese, whom rank 2nd biggest economic player globally, that we are all bind in blood and history, the Philippine people is ready to rule out the mindset of being dependent and bearing the colonism mindset dictated by US, I doubt it is never easy to just walk away as most people in Philippine still trust the US many times more than the Chinese. No region can easily praise and heap on the goodies the Chinese govt or its people have done for them. If US or western nations create jobs or economic benefits for a country, the media hype seems to enlighten that these people could easily accept and downplay any suspicious motive. Where if it is Chinese trade and investment concerned, most would have second doubts if these investors or government are truly genuinely invest for uplifting the peoples' livelihood. All simply boils down differences in opinion between whom are a better observor of Human Rights accord. In terms of perception, most people would seem to assume Chinese brush aside human rights issue whenever it being presented, yet the westerner seems to embrace with great stride they lead by example. Such differences do make perception greatly matter.
Thus I am not truly assure how many good deeds and kindness Chinese govt is doing for Philippines, will their people trust in Chinese will be elevated afterall the One Road, One Belt plan should be WIn-Win for all people and not just for creator or receiver only.
