De Lima: Rehabilitate AFP or be a ‘satellite’ to China

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/15/2021 - 18:51
MANILA, Philippines --- Senator Leila de Lima said Thursday that after President Rodrigo Duterte ends his term in 2022, the country must "rehabilitate" the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). While De Lima hopes the AFP can regain its "shaky loyalty" to the country, the damage its commander Duterte has caused remains reversible, with no other choice but to rehabilitate the military's general staff. "Because our country has only one AFP who will defend us against China," explained de Lima. "Either that, or we start accepting our fate in this region as just another one of China's satellites after Laos and Cambodia," she added. According to De Lima, the AFP Western Command's ...

  Empty stands have been the new normal for tennis since last year due to COVID-19 restrictions but top men's players like Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic said they still find it difficult to maintain their intensity during matches in the absence of fans.

Barring the swing in Australia in February, tournaments continue to be played in front of a handful of fans at most. Nadal lost some of his intensity during Wednesday's 6-1 6-2 win over Argentine Delbonis at the Monte Carlo Mast...
