Are end days for the Philippines? Recent report said that debris from long-range missile might fall on the Philippine territory from North Korea when it launches its missiles in the middle of April, which put worries on the Philippine government because the Philippines have no advanced capability to monitor missile and low ability to enforce a no-fly zone.
“Our radars have a very low, small window of areas that they can survey….we cannot even monitor aircraft flying over, our skies because we completely rely on commercial air traffic controllers. We don’t have an air-defense system..” Pnoy ,Honasan.
Thus, the Philippine government is asking an international help from its allied countries to prepare for the worse that the debris from a long-range missile from North Korea might incur doom on the Philippine areas of responsibility.
“..Now, we will ask those that have more extensive surveillance capabilities to be able to give us more warnings in case it really poses a danger to any of our population..We have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best…”
According to President Noy, who doesn’t want to incur panic on its people though on his speech it reflects some alarm by saying that they are doing their best to control bases and international support that has expertise that will tell what are the dangers that it might incur; “..how big an area will be affected…” and what are the possible areas that can be considered danger zones;”…how high is the probability..” of danger that will incur unto the Philippine population.
The Aquino government has urged its local disaster management department (the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council [NDRRMC]) to make the necessary preparations if some debris of the long-range missile from North Korea really might cause havoc on some areas of the Philippine territory.
But, doubly, PNoy’s National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council [NDRRMC]) has not yet proven its effectiveness on regards to disaster management which really put great worries and panic upon the Filipino people he governs.
Let’s hope for the worst to come, hopefully, it will not but sure it will?
