China Tests "Guam Killer" Ballistic Missile (Bienvenido Macario, USA, 05/14/16 4:03 am)

I was about to e-mail the WAIS editor some examples of Duterte's candid blurts that earned him the "Filipino Donald Trump" title, when I saw this rather alarming report.

Dubbed the "Guam Killer," the intermediate-range ballistic missile DF-26 is China's first conventional ballistic missile that could reach Guam.

See: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/05/11/chinese-ballistic-missiles-dubbed-guam-killer-pose-increasing-threat-to-u-s-island-report-says/

Now that Aquino III will be replaced by Duterte, maybe the US will grant independence to Guam, make Aquino III the president, and then donate Guam to China. Problem solved.

Granting independence to the Philippines was a huge mistake that created hell on earth for tens of millions of Filipinos. Maybe the US Senate could take a cue from Steve Harvey who made the mistake of announcing Miss Colombia as the 2015 Miss Universe, instead of Miss Philippines. But Steve Harvey realized his mistake and corrected the same. There was a predicted "end of world" (of US politics?) that should have happened on Dec. 21, 2012. Instead it happened on Dec. 21, 2015 and the US Senate's credibility was demolished.

How about rescinding the 1946 Treaty of Manila or the Treaty of General Relations that prematurely, irresponsibly and unjustly granted dependent independence to the abandoned US territory, the oil-, gas- and mineral-rich Philippines?

I can't help but remember Fermín Jáudenes's answer when asked why the once mighty Spanish Empire was lost. He said: "Neglecting the Philippines."

JE comments:  Jáudenes was briefly the Spanish Governor-General of Philippines in 1898.  The Philippines may have been Spain's most "neglected" colony (technically it was a meta-colony, run from Mexico City), but Spain lost even its preferred Crown Jewels--Mexico, Perú, and later Cuba.

Bienvenido Macario has long advocated for the US to retake possession of the Philippines, but I cannot envision any scenario by which this could (or should) happen.
