Yesterday, Juan Ponce Enrile and Antonio Trillanes traded accusations over the bill seeking to divide Camarines Sur and the senator’s role as special envoy of the Philippines regarding the Scarborough Shoal dispute with China.
Trillanes first stood up by announcing his resignation from the majority bloc of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile to join the minority group after he exposed the alleged caucus called by Enrile in his office in the Senate last July 24.
Tensions got worse when Trillanes called Enrile as a political lackey of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Another false association fallacy by Trillanes by linking Juan Ponce Enrile with Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as Enrile supports the creation of new Nueva Camarines. I do not know on why Antonio Trillanes wanted to associate his detractors to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, even though the latter did not really push his detractors to destroy him.
Another was that, Juan Ponce Enrile countered Antonio Trillanes in return by saying that Trillanes told the ambasador to China Sonia Brady that the Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto del Rosario a “traitor”.
After Enrile’s statement about Trilliances’ conversation with the ambassador to China, Trillanes stormed out from the Session Hall as he cannot bear what Enrile said that his actions were potentially treasonous.
Through Brady’s notes, Enrile said it appeared that Trillanes was protecting China and even suspected the United States behind the Scarborough Shoal dispute. What, a conspiracy theory from Trillanes that the United States was behind the Scarborough Shoal dispute as many times the United States government stated that they are not interfering the Scarborough Shoal dispute between the Philippines and China.
What Trillanes did in dealing the Chinese government and stabbing our Foreign Affairs department for his personal ambitions were really disgusting that potentially threatens our national sovereignty and turning the Chinese off from our country because of our diplomatic weakness on dealing with the Chinese government. Trillanes should have not been a special envoy to China as his history being a military rebel against the government of then-President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will be used by China as the weakest link of the Philippines in justification for their more bullying of our country.
