Wikileaks Revelations: Nothing New About the Philippines

Just one of those days – of sifting through the BS of Philippine media and its lapdogs in the blogosphere.

Frankly, there is nothing new in the Wikileaks revelations that hasn’t been said about the Philippines before. Raise a howl on the Wikileaks revelation that an Australian diplomat considers the Philippines a “basketcase”? C’mon dudes – that’s a NO-BRAINER.

Why do you think there are at least TEN MILLION FILIPINOS overseas? That’s a sizeable chunk of the Philippine population. Not only that – it’s a demographic that is highly educated, highly literate – albeit a lot are misguided – but just the same that pool of human resources is a valuable knowledge base that drives the economies of their adopted countries instead of the Philippines.

Here’s a sprinkling of the wikileaks revelations:
