Agreed. The fact is the PAF cannot maintain and safely operate its fleet of C-130Hs, all of which were transferred from the USA. Their C-130 crash rate or cannibalisation rate is the highest within ASEAN. They are the top helicopter crash experts within ASEAN too.Not an excuse for Pinoy administration that continue shown neglect to Defense.
It is clearly not a long shopping list but limited funds; the Pinoys want American freebies that they can’t maintain. The PAF can’t raise, train and sustain even a C-130 fleet. How can the Pinoys pretend to be competent?
Duterte (born on 28 Mar 1945), in Maasin, was from Southern Leyte and while his family may not be as rich or powerful as some former Philippine Presidents, his father, Vicente Duterte, was the governor of Davao in the late 1950s, and Soledad Roa, a civic leader from Agusan del Norte.He comes from a middle class background, unlike Aquino, Macapagal and Marcos, as well as other poltical dynasties whose families have long been entrenched in politics and who've long had wealth. .
Duterte has 3 children with his first wife Elizabeth Zimmerman—Paolo (incoming Davao vice mayor), Sara (Davao mayor) and Sebastian. The 25-year marriage of Zimmerman and Duterte was annulled in 1998. The President has another daughter, Veronica, with his current partner Honeylet Avanceña.
He comes from a powerful regional clan and his 1st wife is also from a rich clan — can we don’t buy into his false image of being middle class? Less buying into his propaganda bullshit, please?
