Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson has lamented President Rodrigo Duterte over his remark about the alleged “hit-and-run” incident between the Filipino and Chinese vessel in Reed Bank.
KAMI learned that for Lacson, the President left the people “heartbroken” with his statement.
“The president broke his silence and left us heartbroken,” Lacson said.
“He forgot to explore all resources available before exercising his last option of surrender,” he added.
The senator also said that he was not suggesting for a war against China, but they should feel the balance the power over the West Philippine Sea.
“The MDT is one yet untapped weapon. I am not suggesting WW3 but at least it can make China feel the balance of power in the WPS,” Lacson said.
In a report by the ABS-CBN News (author Dharel Placido), Lacson was talking about the pact made between the Philippines and United States in 1951, that the two countries would help each other when there is an attack.
As previously reported by KAMI, President Duterte said that the Philippines is not yet ready to go to war against China. Therefore, people should hear the side of China and wait for the investigation.
