Without justice there can only be violence. According to UNICEF the children in the Philippines who come up against the legal system are not being given justice. But then it is only rarely that adults receive justice, so this should not come as a big surprise.
What may surprise some of you is that the U.S. has decided to once again help the Philippines become a strong and just society. After much debate and thought by the wisest of the wise the U.S. has decided to triple… military aid. They will not be tripling aid for social services, for hospitals, for schools, for libraries, for clean water, for anything other than the military.
