The late President Ferdinand Marcos talks to the US Congress directly
Ferdinand Marcos Considers the US as the Trustee of the World
The late Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos trusts the Americans. This is probably the reason why his son said that America betrays his father. This was when they were taken to Hawaii instead of Paoay, Ilocos Norte. The older Marcos even speaks to the US congress. He tells the Americans that the US is the trustee of the world. Did they come short?
Asia Looks Up to the US
Marcos assures his listeners in the US congress that Asia looks up to them. A strong alliance is binding for as long as they watch each other’s back. The former president’s agenda is contrary to what detractors say. He is by far respected anywhere he speaks. No traces of the alleged human rights violations and corruption. He wants unity among nations more than anything else. This is for the welfare of the world’s citizens.
Will the US Fail the Filipinos?
Political alliance is not permanent. Things can shift depending on the players. There’s only one thing that the former President hopes. That regardless of any uncertainties, the US watches over the Philippines. In return, Asia continues to respect America.
