President Duterte is set to visit Israel next month from September 2-5, but even before the President could fly to Israel, the trip has been getting its fair share of criticism online.
Pres. Duterte has reportedly invited an undetermined number of retirable military and police officials to the Israel trip aout of goodwill and appreciation for the sacrifices of our military servicemen for the country.
Disgusting! This is how Manila Bulletin lifestyle editor and writer Krizette Chu reacted to people who thumbed down President Duterte’s inclusion of a couple of retirable and active military officers in his upcoming Israel visit.
“Nakakadiri yung mga taong nag rereklamo na dadalhin ni Duterte ang ibang retired at active military sa Israel.”
A furious Krizette Chu cited 4 reasons to justify the trip of the military (active and retirable) to Israel.
Una sa lahat, pag ang Presidente nakasakay sa eroplano, hindi yun commercial flight. You pay the airline per hour or per day, not per person.
Pangalawa, some of the best militaries in the world are encouraged by their countries to travel. Some countries have special discounts for military travels for their tickets, accommodations, and they even have special lounges at the airports. Ganon ang pagpapahalaga sa military kasi buhay nila ang kapalit.
Pangatlo, mahiya naman kayo. They lived their lives in service to us, bawat giyera kapalit buhay. Ano ba naman ang travel sa Israel? And take note mababa ang suweldo nila dati, so they were working for peanuts. ikaw, bibigyan kita ng 20k a month, tapos by the end of your career, may pa trip ka na isa to Israel, kapalit ay araw araw nasa peligro ang buhay mo, at makikipag barilan ka sa terorista at NPA,
papayag ka? Di ba hindi? Israel yun na may pakinabang, di naman Las Vegas.
Pang-apat, si Leni nga na walang kuwenta, walang silbi sa bayan ang travels, walang serbisyo, walang buhay na inalay, wala kayong reklamo, bitbit pa yung mga chuwariwap nya?
Chu ended her post telling the critics to have shame, that their freedom is not free while calling the critics ingrates.
Mahiya kayo. Mga ingrato. Your freedom is not free. Punyeta.
Netizens who’ve read Krizette Chu’s FB post shared her sentiment and generously offered their opinion by commenting in the thread.
Tom Berenguer They look down on our soldiers like they would the sacadas in their hacienda. Ang baba ng tingin sa mga sundalo natin. I would really love to see our armed forces exact their pound of flesh and make them pay for all their sins. Bastards!
Nicky Ceralvo Hindi nila naisip how it felt sumabak sa encounter seeing your comrades getting shot and dying next to you. Nakikipagbarilan ka hindi mo alam kung ikaw ba ang susunod.
Isipin nila how it would feel mga nakasabay mo mag training after a year ang dami ng nabawas sa inyo.
Para lang maging safe mga reklamador. Nakataya buhay ng military men natin araw-araw.
Tang inumin ng mga reklamador na yan!
Meanwhile, a wife of US serviceman shared how the US government and private companies show their appreciation to the sacrifices of the soldiers by pampering the family with perks and discounts when they travel.
Roseanne Joachim Madam Krizette Laureta Chu asawa ko US military, maliit din ang sweldo pero sagana sa benefits. Kapag travel kami libre ang luggage pati pamilya, minsan discounted pa tickets, tapos sa mga private establishments like restaurants May pa military discount pa. Ganun ka laki nang suporta nang mga Amerikano sa kanilang mga sundalo. Etong maliit na bagay na ginagawa nang pangulo para sa kanila.
