A best selling author and columnist (so he claims. I don’t even know this guy) just made a swipe at the Philippines for claiming a stake at the disputed Spratly Islands. He did not go far to rant about the Philippines’ move to put into law its claim at Spratlys, he confronted his Filipina helper, who he claimed was a holder of International Politics from the University of Manila (in effect maligning the quality of citizen that the Philippines has).
He lectured her about the truth on who really owns the Spratlys and threatened her that if this development continues, he will not increase her salary (now think about the shallowness of the mind of this guy).
To say that the article is a racist rant is an understatement. I could not comprehend a guy of his caliber, as what he claims to be, could rant carelessly about something he does not fully comprehend. His impulsive action shows his immaturity and lack of decency on all levels. He might be a former BBC reporter and a writer for a number of English magazines but he has made himself vulnerable to ridicule of how low his state of mind is.
He went as far as threatening that if the Philippines dared to bring the dispute to a higher level, the Philippines will suffer the fate of Argentina during the Falklands War.
Now to this Chinese guy… Mr. Chip Tsao, that was really a cheap shot.
