Du30-Marcos Relations with China Softens American-North Korean-Japanese Conflict

World War





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It was a worldwide perception in the past that the Chinese would always aid North Korea, regarded as its little brother. However, the foreign relations now has changed. Philippine President Du30 regained the same friendship with the Chinese as the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ time. It is backed up nowadays by his son, Bongbong Marcos to prevent World War III. The American President reaches out to the Filipino leader to talk to China to help reprimand Pyong Yang’s Kim Jung Un. Beijing is North Korea’s only significant ally but is now frustrated over its nuclear and missile tests. China recently closes its main road connection with North Korea allegedly for repair but the reopening is indefinite.

[VIDEO]: Tensions with North Korea in focus after missile test




North Korea is Isolated

The bridge closure comes after state-owned airline Air China suspended flights between Beijing and North Korea. This is due to a lack of demand. But it deepens the North’s isolation amid mounting U.N. sanctions. China, who has the alliance of Russia warns North Korea that it is alone should it declare war on Japan or America.




Du30’s Strategy

Du30  tells Trump to stop threatening North Korea and assure Kim Jong Un instead that there are no plans to oust him. The U.S., Japan, China and South Korea should sit down with the North Korean leader to tackle the Pyongyang regime’s weapons development and missile tests, the tough-talking President said.



Japan is on the Defensive Side

The city of Fukuoka in western Japan conducts a drill to prepare for another possible North Korean ballistic missile launch. This happens two days after Pyongyang’s recent missile test. About 50 people at Tenjin Chuo Park in the center of the city moved underground. Residents received a second alert five minutes later informing them that a missile had flown over the country. This might instill fear among the people but the government feels it’s necessary.








Diplomatic Ties

The Japanese learned from the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the Americans during World War II. They might be a sleeping warrior now but preparations are in place to minimize collateral damages should a missile or nuclear attack happens. Unline World War II, if World War III manifests, the Philippines together with the Chinese, Japanese, Americans and even the Russians vow to isolate and suppress North Korea immediately. Thanks to the Du30-Marcos brilliance.

Filipino in Guam Scared of PI Marcos-Like Martial Law than Pyongyang’s Missile Threat

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Misinformation can really poison minds. Kim Jong-un’s threat is not even comparable to Marcos’ Martial Law. For most Filipinos living on Guam, packing up is out of the question. “Kim Jong Un? He’s nothing. President Du30 is fiercer than him,” said Risalito Recina, a truck operator for a local construction company. He then said that the country is far more dangerous than where they are now because of the constant killings that allegedly revive the terror during the Marcos era.

[VIDEO]: The President said that Southeast Asian leaders are “extremely worried” about the tension between N. Korea and the US. He warned the US President not to play into Kim Jong-Un’s mind.




Not Leaving Guam

Many Filipinos in Guam like Vene Bourbon came to Guam, with his wife Emma, in 1996. He resigned from his job as a reporter for People’s Journal. “This has been our home and we have no plans of leaving,” said Bourbon, who works with the Guam Department of Education’s support staff.




Provoked by the US

Provoked by the American President’s “fire and fury” warning, North Korea renewed its threats to attack the US-controlled island, Guam.  It plans to launch four test missiles in the middle of the month which is anytime soon. Pyongyang said the four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles would fly 2,085.7 miles in 17 minutes, 45 seconds.



Philippine President’s Approach

The Filipino President told North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho that Pyongyang would be “a good dialogue partner” of the ASEAN. Senator Alan Peter Cayetano corrects this by saying; North Korea is not a dialogue partner of the ASEAN but is part of the Asean Regional Forum, which includes Russia, Japan, the United States, China and South Korea. However, this shows the diplomacy of Du30.








Non-Negotiable

North Korea firmly said that its program for nuclear weapons and the intercontinental ballistic missile is non-negotiable. It criticizes the Asean member states for rebuking the isolated communist country but not the US for its “hostile policy” towards Pyongyang. So, Guam and even Japan that is nearer to the latter are still not safe from Kim Jong-un’s wrath. Also, there are many Filipinos that can attest that Marcos’ Martial Law was the era of discipline where only the criminals are fearful of their lives. The rest of the citizens lived in peace and abundance.
