MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo has confirmed what Rappler CEO Maria Ressa has been saying all along — that the Philippines is a “war zone.”
“It’s the worst war zone I’ve ever been in,” Ressa likes to say whenever she is interviewed by the Western media.
The Robredo camp’s confirmation came through what appeared like a 2022 Presidential campaign poster which shows the VP in front of the Philippine flag.
But there is one problem.
The law and protocols dictate that when hanging or displaying the Philippine flag vertically, the red stripe should be on the right side of the person looking at the flag. The Robredo poster had the red stripe on the left.
Every Filipino who has gone through civics lessons in school knows that when the red stripe is on the left, it means the Philippines is at war.
Yes, a war zone, as per Ressa.
