Sa panayam kay Cheche Lazaro sa One News ‘Convo, sinabi ni Alejano na dapat gamitin ng Pilipinas ang ang sandatahang lakas upang maipaabot ang mensahe sa iba pang mga bansa.
“Ano ang silbi ng sandatahang lakas kung hindi mo ito gagamitin?” pahayag ng dating Marine officer.
“What’s the use of the armed forces if you’re not going to use it? We are strengthening the armed forces and that’s the message to the international community on how they should treat us,” told Alejano, a former Marine officer.
On July 12th, it would be two years since the Philippines won the case in the permanent court of arbitration in The Hague. This historic victory invalidated China's nine-dash-line claim in the South China Sea that encroached into our territory. It would be a time to celebrate but the mood today is the opposite: concerns about our national security and territorial sovereignty have emerged because the Philippine government has decided to take a relaxed stance against China on this important international issue.For its pilot episode, seasoned journo Cheche Lazaro sits down with security expert Chester B Cabalza and Representative Gary Alejano to talk about the overlapping territorial disputes involving the Philippines and the emerging superpower China.Here's a snippet of the episode.
