Reaping What We Sowed

“As you sow so shall you reap.” We are now again reaping the fruits of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s support for the illegal and immoral United States war in Iraq.

After the Angelo dela Cruz episode, Arroyo’s government is again on the rush to save overseas Filipino worker Roberto Tarongoy, who was hostaged in by anti-occupation forces in Iraq last November.

Tarongoy was reportedly shown recently in a videotape provided to Al-Jazeera Network videotape wearing an orange suit that is usually worn by hostages nearing execution. His captors gave a March 11 deadline and demanded the withdrawal of Filipino workers there and for the Philippines to stop its military cooperation with the US in Iraq.
