#1 "Washington respects the choice of the Philippine people."

Wonder why there's so much excitement about Tr(i)umph?

#2 Good point skid. I have spent a lot of time in Davao. The crime there is crazy. There is the NPA, MILF, ASG, and the ARMM. There is mining there and each group extorts their 7%. When the mine fails to pay it get blown up. The airport gets bombed every six months. It is the Wild West. Extra judicial killings are business as usual down there.

#3 I believe Elizabeth Kennedy Trudeau.

Any relations to middle and/or last name, because I would be just shocked.

#4 How long ago was that 49? just curious.

I'm hearing from some people that it's one of the safest cities in Asia now - after Duterte cleaned it up.
