China’s megaphone diplomacy

UPTOWN, Cagayan de Oro — Foreign Secretary Teddy Boy  Locsin may have  lost  his cool on China’s megaphone diplomacy over the disputed WPS.
Fact is, the issue of China’s influence over the WPS  has turned into a global media  hype, vultured every inch of the issue by the western press.
With no sign of backing up its claim in the disputed islands, China’s narratives on national security, political donations and media influence are indeed waxed with greed on a global scale.
To deal with a world power that is not, China has somehow risen  her political populist agenda globally through the WPS claims. 
China’s so called growing global power is pretty much ‘worrisome’ indeed to the free world such that one false move would likely become a catastrophic scenario.
Now the call for a  Duterte-Carpio debate  on who to blame for the WPS fiasco is one laughing matter for China. 
The accusing fingers of Carpio against  Duterte are irrelevant,  more so insignificant in the eyes of the public  amid mounting pressure for Malacanang to take a stronger stance on the issue of   the WPS.
To put it bluntly, the Carpio runaround is nothing but a political dirt, a one-man maneuver out to discredit  Duterte’s kid’s glove policy on China’s WPS claim. 
Be that as it may, what’s so relevant in this issue is the way how the US responds to the call of support as long-time ally.
The recent flotilla of Chinese militia vessels anchored for a while at the WPS is nothing but a simple case of  ‘testing the waters,’ so to speak. 
What’s happening there actually is a war of nerves. No more, no less. (ruffy44_ph2000@yahoo.com)
