Duterte and Panelo belong to my same senior age bracket and are not any much younger than I am. It is politically and intellectually bankrupt for Panelo to refer to my aging. The ad hominem remarks against me are stupid, impertinent and devoid of reason. It is an attempt to distract attention from the issues that I raise.
I have stood for the sovereign rights of the Philippines and the Filipino people over the exclusive economic zone in the West Philippine Sea and have exposed and condemned the traitorous sell-out of such sovereign rights to China by Duterte. This position of mine is supported by the broad masses of the people, the revolutionary movement and by the most responsible leaders, organizations and institutions motivated by patriotism.
