A Dispatch from Andre Vltchek & Crista Priscilla

The good light in which the US is perceived today by many Filipinos is the result of extremely successful propaganda comparing the US with Spanish imperialism... and the ignorance and short memory of most people.

Prof. Eduardo Tadem and his wife focus on a new development of enormous international importance, the de facto integration of US and Filipino military, especially in terms of free use of Filipino military bases and installations by US forces. This is no longer just huge American bases in the Philippines, like Subic Bay, but the Pentagon's leave to do with the country's own military infrastructure as it pleases. This is neocolonialism on steroids, yet the story remains totally under-reported on the American press.
