Golez: President Duterte visits Japan's largest warship. The Philippines has moved on fully from the bloody war with Japan that started in December 1941. That is good foreign policy. The Philippines should likewise move on fully from the bloody war with America that started in February 1899. Today we face different threats, a different form of invasion, quiet, armed with warships, huge law enforcement ships, and bearing multibillion dollar gifts, but just as dangerous, aiming at permanently occupying our vast West Philippine Sea. We need alliances, new and old.
