MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The news media have been focusing on China’s supposed threat to go to war with the Philippines should the latter pursue its claim over disputed territory in the South China Sea.
By sheer number, the Philippines is no match to China’s military power. China has seven times the number of Filipino military personnel, not to mention the Chinese great advantage in as far as equipment like tanks, fighter aircraft, warships and submarines are concerned.
But Filipinos have an advantage over China 🇨🇳 when it comes to keyboard warriors.
It is estimated that almost half of the Philippine population is on Facebook, not to mention other social media accounts.
Here’s how Filipinos can avert a possible war with China:
Each of the 50 million or so Filipino Facebook account holders should send a minimum of 26 friend requests to the Chinese. That would amount to a total of 1.3 Billion (the estimated population of China) Chinese friends.
If China decides to go to war with the Philippines, no Chinese would support it, not even its military since they all would have Facebook friends in the Philippines 🇵🇭.
Long live the Filipino keyboard 🎹 warriors! Long live world peace!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – WannaCry virus is a ransomware program targeting Microsoft Windows that has recently infected over 230,000 computers in 99 countries, demanding ransom payments in bitcoin in 28 languages.
If you live in the Philippines, here’s how you can protect your computers from the data-damaging virus:
Do not open emails from Leni Robredo, Jim Paredes, Cynthia Patag, Raissa Robles, Maria Ressa, Atty. Jesus Falcis or Agot Isidro.
Refrain from getting your online news from ABS-CBN, Inquirer or Rappler, TIME, or New York Times.
Be cautious when clicking on links from Winnie Monsod , Chito Gascon or Georgina Hernandez.
If you see phrases on your emails or social media accounts such as ‘UN Rapporteur,’ ‘frailties of a woman,’ or ‘na ano lang,’ delete them right away. They contain the dreaded virus.
Be very afraid when a yellow flip flop icon appears on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. Your computer has been compromised. See an IT immediately.
Always stick to Adobo Chronicles, PCOO, Manila Times except the column of Kit Tatad, and the pro-Duterte Trollerati for up-to-date, unbiased and accurate news and information.
Spead this warning widely to your friends, family and networks. You’re welcome!
