Philippine president refuses to say sorry
Philippine President Benigno Aquino III Wednesday angered people from both the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong for his renewed refusal to apologize over the deaths of eight Hong Kong tourists in a 2010 hostage crisis, despite reports that the mayor of Manila will deliver a formal apology during a trip to Hong Kong.
At the forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines, Aquino clearly expressed that no national government apology would be given for the hostage crisis in Manila three years ago, in which a sacked police officer held 23 people on a Hong Kong tourist bus and killed eight of them.
“The act of one individual should not be construed as the act of the entire nation,” he said, adding a formal apology could have legal ramifications that led to compensation.
Aquino has repeatedly declined to make a formal apology over the incident, frustrating the city government of Hong Kong and the victims’ families.
In contrast, a Manila city official said Joseph Estrada, an ex-president who was elected mayor of Manila in May, will go to Hong Kong this week to present the apology in the form of a resolution passed by the city council, AFP reported.
The resolution passed on Tuesday expressed “the sentiment of the city government of Manila in their sincerest effort to apologize to the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the family of the victims of the Rizal Park hostage-taking incident.”
Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying Tuesday said in Beijing that with the support of the central government, they have been contacting the Philippine government in the last two weeks and will continue to seek justice for the families of the victims and those who were injured in the tragedy.
Earlier this month, at the request of Leung, President Xi Jinping assigned the foreign ministry to follow the incident, and Premier Li Keqiang asked the Philippine government to deal with it seriously during his talks with Aquino in Brunei.
“Under pressure from China, the Philippine side tries to make a friendly gesture and gets in touch with the Chinese side through Manila’s mayor conveying an apology to Hong Kong,” said Wang Wei, a research fellow with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times.
“The Philippines is seeking a breakthrough [in the stalemate with China],” Wang Xiaopeng, an associate professor of politics with China Foreign Affairs University, told the Global Times, noting that the Philippines faces pressure from both the Chinese central government and Hong Kong SAR government.
Estrada’s planned delivering of the apology is regarded as an effort to make Hong Kong lift its black travel warning against the Philippines.
However, Aquino’s consistent refusal to apologize may lead to little effect from Estrada’s endeavor.
Tse Chi-kin, brother of a victim, said he hopes Estrada can represent the entire country, not just his city. Tse also said the Philippines should address all four of the relatives’ demands – including compensation, and punishment for officials who bungled the rescue – instead of just issuing an apology, according to RTHK.
Net users in Hong Kong writing on discuss.com.hk, a major online discussion forum in the city, voiced their frustration toward Aquino, saying they wouldn’t travel to the Philippines even if the black warning were lifted.
In the mainland, the news also seized wide attention, with people expressing their outrage toward the “irresponsible manner” shown by Aquino, noting that apology from the city government is far from enough.
“Aquino’s statement shows that the Philippine side didn’t take a serious attitude when handling the issue,” said Wang Xiaopeng.

The High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a program focused on the study of upper atmospheric and solar-terrestrial physics and Radio Science. The HAARP program operates a major Arctic ionosphere research facility on an Air Force owned site near Gakona, Alaska. Principal instruments installed at the HAARP Research Station include a high power, high-frequency (HF) phased array radio transmitter (known as the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), used to stimulate small, well-defined volumes of ionosphere, and a large and diversified suite of modern geophysical research instruments including an HF ionosonde, ELF and VLF receivers, magnetometers, riometers, a UHF diagnostic radar and optical and infrared spectrometers and cameras which are used to observe the complex natural variations of Alaska’s ionosphere as well as to detect artificial effects produced by the IRI. Future plans include completion of the UHF radar to allow measurement of electron densities, electron and ion temperatures, and Doppler velocities in the stimulated region and in the natural ionosphere using incoherent scatter techniques.
Is HAARP Unique?

ALEDIA CENTENO RODRIGUEZ, Frente Patriotico Arecibe said her organization had spoken last year on the United States strategy to authorize a nuclear weapons production facility in Puerto Rico, in violation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. She explained that Arecibo was home to the Arecibo National Astronomy and Ionospheric Centre (NAIC), which was used as an “ionospheric heater” [an array of antennae which are used for heating the uppermost part of the atmosphere]. Arecibo was also mentioned as a test-site for the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme (HAARP), in a patent filed by an individual in the United States, to conducted experiments related to ionospheric manipulation. HAARP could function as an anti-missile and anti-aircraft defence system, permit interception and disruption of communications, weather and submarine and subterranean communications, among other things. The HAARP patent papers also stated that the invention could simulate and perform the same function as performed by the detonation of a heavy type nuclear device
She said Arecibo was also mentioned in connection with the Puerto Rico Karst Conservation Act, which included authorization for the deployment of a nuclear weapons production facility. Aerial photos taken in the region showed antenna-like devices directed towards the ground, present since the mid-1990s. The citizens of Arecibo had not been made aware of the consequences or possible effects of those atmospheric experiments. Statements found in the literature regarding those experiments admit to the use of laser rays aimed at the atmosphere and there have been witnesses to the use of such rays for decades. There was a high rate of cancer cases of unknown origin in that region.
She said documents from the United States Department of Defence and Energy, and the National Nuclear Security Administration appeared to be directed to the use of Puerto Rican territory for the production of nuclear weapons. On 17 May, a United States House Bill on the safety for Americans from nuclear weapons testing was introduced, which states that alternate locations for nuclear testing were being considered The bill also stated that the Department of Energy, acting under the National Environmental Policy Act, would be responsible for handling cases of contamination in the United States. In addition, Puerto Rico was designated as a territory under the purview of the Radiological Assistance Programme, which was ready to intervene in cases of radioactive contamination. It would seem that that entity was in charge of the well-being of the people of Puerto Rico in case of a nuclear accident.
A document on land acquisition, available at the property registry of Puerto Rico, Arecibo Section, showed the consolidation of various estates into a single 114 acre estate purchased by the United States Government. More purchases would follow. The people of Arecibo were wary of the intentions of the Untied States Department of Defense, and denounced the fact that the people of Puerto Rico were not being included in plans that affected its security and future. The Committee was urged to refer the case of Puerto Rico to the General Assembly, and to take the necessary precautions to guarantee the security of the hemisphere.
On October 18, 2013 we witnessed a large microwave pulse over the West Pacific (showing up on the microwave background imagry from CIMSS).
On top of Typhoon Francisco, on top of Tropical Depression TWENTY SEVEN, today, October 20th, we now have Tropical Depression TWENTY EIGHT. A newly formed storm inside the microwave pulsed area from October 18th, 2013.
Two storms, inside the pulse, within 48 hours.
What are the chances?
Watch the previous video made here explaining Tropical Storm TWENTY SEVEN’s formation:
The video above can be summed up as such : Within 24 hours of the pulse occurring, a new tropical system developed directly inside the pulsed area epicenter, forming a new storm (currently called Tropical Depression TWENTY SEVEN). I also made a post on this, you can check that post here.
Move forward another 24 hours, and a NEW system has formed , called Tropical Depression TWENTY EIGHT. Ironically, this new storm also formed inside the pulsed area epicenter, just a bit south from the previous storm.
Thus, within 48 hours of a giant microwave pulse occurring, we see two large tropical systems develop inside the area which was pulsed.
Make note, in the picture below, or in the animation at the beginning of this article, you can clearly see the RIPPLE EFFECT in the pulse as it is transmitted.
