Prominent DLSU professor: Utang na loob, China and Russia are no longer communists
De La Salle University's prominent Political Science professor Antonio Contreras lashed on the people giving comments about China and Russia being communists, after President Rodrigo Duterte has pledged allegiance to China and cut ties with the United States. "Utang na loob matagal na pong hindi komunista and China. Maging ang Russia. Ibinaon na po ang Cold War. Tapos na po ang panahon ng Huk." he said.
The Cold War occured after World War II when militiray tensions formed between the Western Bloc headed by US and its NATO allies, and the Eastern Bloc comprised of the Soviet Union and its allies.
Contreras claimed that China is now a capitalist.
He said it has long stopped being a communistic nation.
He asked the people to stop suggesting that an alliance with China would make the country a communistic one.
"Lipas na po ang kaisipan ito. Laos na" he said.
"At huwag nang mag-iisip na ang vetsin ay dinurog na buto ng Intsik ha. Di na yan uso." he added.
