Shameful. This picture of Filipino general identified as Brig. Gen. Marciano Ilagan shows him being carried on someone else’s shoulder as he steps off a canoe while an American officer behind him wades on the water is circulating around the world via the internet.
A nurse in Illinois who sent this photo said this embarrassing scene was played on US TV several days ago. She did not identify the place where the photo was taken or the station it was shown.
The nurse, Nida Martinez, said: “See the symbolism on why the Philippines has problems? I think the general should be fired. How could we win the war against the Abu Sayyaf? Eh, tubig lang takot na siya. Nakakahiya! Lalong nakakahiya doon sa Kano na kasunod niya. Bagong pedicure siguro ang loko.
Send this to all your friends and hopefully this will circulate back in the Philippines para mapahiya itong general na ito.”
