    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the beheading "an act of cold-blooded murder." Yes, and the sky is blue. But what is he going to do about it? Nothing. ISIS and this Islamic group, Abu Sayyaf, which pledged its allegiance to ISIS, have nothing to fear from this dandy. He has said repeatedly that Canada was not at war with ISIS. Well, ISIS is at war with you, damn fool. Obama's lapdog, PM Trudeau, would not comment on the fate of the other hostages -- fellow Canadian Robert Hall, Hall's Filipino girlfriend, Marites Flor, and a Norwegian, Kjartan Sekkingstad.

    Philippine President Benigno Aquino on Monday said he would do his best to prevent the family of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos from returning to power. Aquino, whose father and namesake Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino was detained and then killed by Marcos forces, made the remark as the dictator's son is vying for the vice presidency. While Aquino is stepping down after his single six-year term this year, Marcos's son, Ferdinand Marcos Jnr., is leading in the race for the vice presidency in the May 9 elections. Marcos's flamboyant widow, Imelda, has openly said she wants her son to become president and...

    The Philippines has its own version of Donald Trump, and heís campaigning as hard for the presidency of the Philippines as is Trump in the U.S. Heís shouting out controversial charges and claims about as often as Trump, and heís about the same age. The difference is that Rodrigo Duterte, the 70-year-old mayor of Davao, the countryís fourth largest city and largest on the strife-torn large southern island of Mindanao, is a long-time politico with a reputation for brutality whereas Trump is a real estate tycoon whose tough talk may or may not translate into deeds.

    Two years ago today the savage barbarians of Boko Haram, an Islamic jihadist organization, kidnapped 276 Christian schoolgirls in Nigeria. At the time, this was but the latest example of Boko Haramís reign of terror. Up to that point, Boko Haram specifically targeted and slaughtered ChristiansĖespecially Christian worshippers on Christian Holy Days, such as Christmas, Palm Sunday and Easter. In fact, Boko Haram is said to be directly responsible for more deaths than the Islamic State (ISIS). But it wasnít until they kidnapped these hundreds of schoolgirls that the world was finally awoken to the danger that Boko Haram posed....

The islands are on the periphery of the South China Sea, and their EEZ abuts China's self-declared Nine-Dash Line, which Beijing uses to mark its claims in the region.

    While North Korea keeps firing literal and figurative salvos, the world has responded with harsher sanctions -- ones that the Philippines has put into effect by detaining a ship from the reclusive East Asian nation. The Philippine government has impounded a North Korean freighter, the Jin Teng, in Subic Bay and plans to deport its crew, presidential spokesman Manuel Quezon III said in a radio interview, according to the official Philippines News Agency. This wouldn't have happened if not for Pyongyang's recent nuclear test and missile launch, and the global community's reaction to these defiant acts.

One of China's highly developed islands in the northern part of the South China Sea, Woody Island, has been equipped with surface-to-air missiles and fighter aircraft. These moves have come just as many defense analysts have predicted for years and are likely an indication of things to come for China's other island outposts throughout the South China Sea. There is also evidence that China is installing a high-frequency long-range radar array on Cuarteron...

Much of what went on in that conflict, including the sacrifices of our soldiers, has been forgotten. The erasure has been so thorough that the media casually claims...

    New Year's firecrackers left at least one man dead and 380 others injured, and caused a fire that gutted 1,000 shanties in the Philippines despite rain and a government warning campaign, officials said Friday.

Fire officials said a rocket lit by revelers set an abandoned hut ablaze, sparking a fire that razed about 1,000 shanties in Manila's Tondo slum district and displacing several thousand families. Many superstitious Filipinos usher in the...

    If you think the Republican presidential field is crowded, spare a moment for the Philippines. A record 130 candidates have filed to become president in 2016. A colorful cast turned out to register for the race late last month at the election commission headquarters in Manila. There were dragon dancers, and a man dressed as the hero of a recent blockbuster ‚ÄĒ Heneral Luna, a chest-thumping, jingoistic war movie that's landed right in the public's wheelhouse, given the hysteria over China's reclamation projects in the South China Sea. One of the 130 candidates who filed, a newspaper vendor, promises to...

Every facet of naval warfare‚ÄĒair, surface, subsurface, and amphibious‚ÄĒwas involved in this great struggle, and the weapons used included bombs of every type, guns of every caliber, torpedoes, mines, rockets, and even a forerunner of the modern guided missile. But more than mere size...
