Jervis Gaspar:

"UN did nothing when we were sliding into a narco-state. You let millions of lives be destroyed during the Aquino regime and now you are concerned. If you had called the attention of the Aquino government about the drug menace then maybe you will have the credibility to speak now."

Jon T. Hermosisima:

"Abrogation with U.S. alliance? Nah, the U.S. badly needs the PH for their "Asian Pivot" and PRRD is much aware of that. Educate & research further yourselves instead. UN has long ago lost its moral ascendancy & true relevance in quite parallel manner that the League of Nations & the Treaty of Versailles lost theirs, too. Sad but true. Call is for a True Global New Enlightened Consciousness Union NOT a pseudo-UN with only 5 "permanent members" of the Security Council who can veto practically anything less-moneyed members propose. Where's the Human Rights there, not even mentioning its own kilometric pathetic dismally appalling records vis-a-vis HR, pray tell me?"

UN please remember victims there were most CHILDREN. Innocent and vulnerable. I don't know now how UN define justice and human rights. Just saying."
