Agree! because your PM is tactless and hypocrite because he dares to question the casualties of the drug wars of my country but turning his blind eye on some American drone attacks' casualties of civilians.

He even questioned our purchase of helicopters and have guts to deny giving it to us if it will be used against our local insurgents but never questioned the Americans giving military weapons to the Saudi Arabs against Yemenis and arming Ukraine against Russian backed rebels.

I know iniquities always exist in either progressive or poor nation but I prefer to live in a sinful and progressive nation than of mine today.

poor, underdeveloped, divided and sinful nation.

No wonder why you Canadians showed your discriminatory attitude against us by sending some containers of trashes into our ports.

Now will you blame me if I resent being a Filipino because of what your country did to my country?

You Canadians see us Filipinos as filth and I don't also blame you for it because you Canadians are progressive and educated people unlike the majority of my compatriots. you wonder most if not some of you became high minded because of your present superior status.

But mind you, your discrimination against us will not be forever. there will be a time that our country will become progressive too and will never be dependent on the West.

The West once humiliated China but today it is set to surpass the US as the largest economy on earth.

The same will happen to my country someday. it will become progressive and the start of this renaissance I believe is from our present administration.
Not so. I am Canadian by birth and married a Filipino lady without that question even entering the equation.

I don't remember if I had posted in this thread before. But no you should not resent God.

In John 1:46 someone asked if anything good can come from Nazareth. But guess what, Jesus was from Nazareth :LOL:

It doesn't matter where you are from, give your life to God, and He will sort things out.

God can make a way for you, but you have to trust Him, not resent Him.

Thanks for being honest about how you feel. You are not the first or the last person to not be pleased about their country. But you are Filipino by birth and nothing can change that.

So find something good about Philippines to talk about and cheer up about it.

Filipino people are so beautiful. And here I am, having wished a zillion times I was born Filipino or Asian, because there is no such thing as an ugly Filipino or Asian girl, they all look good (even when they think they are ugly) :cry::cry::cry:
But you know what, our individual situations and even physical bodies are only a garment that's going to be dismantled. It's a bit hard to see through everything that seems so tangible to us right now. Wealth is nothing, and beauty is nothing, even happiness is nothing. Only righteousness which is of love remains and translates into eternal life.
Btw, I live in the US now but am not from the US and have seen some war and sanctions and economic collapse where I'm from.

Should you resent God for any reason? I would say no. Experience has taught me that resenting God doesn't help. :cool:

Not at all my friend. I don’t know what it’s like being raised in a similar situation so I understand if you don’t take what I say seriously - but God has a reason. He puts us where we are for His purpose, and you never know sometimes unless He shows you or you ask Him in Heaven. Maybe there is someone who is Phillipino who would be reached by you, maybe you met someone there years ago that will be part of His plan for your life, maybe people need to be reached and they’d only really listen to someone who had been raised in that same type of situation.

You never know, but there is always a reason.

Because the Philippines is a poor nation because it is rife with crimes, illegal drugs, political divisions, colonial mentality, crab mentality and political corruption.

I wish that I was born in a progressive countries such as Japan, France or the US.

It is misfortune to me that I was not born in a progressive country.
Do not say that, everything happens for a reason, i myself wish i was american, but i am British. I pride myself in the works i do. It doesnt matter where you are you can make a difference.

I am here to collect the views of my compatriots and contemplate them. that's all :)

if you're not an American, will your resent God if ever you were born in a poor and corrupted nation that will really make you feel ashamed?

I saw how some nationalities discriminated my compatriots because of the decadent condition of my country.

for them we are branded as one of the inferior race in the world.

Jameen - you are not of an inferior race or nationality. My wife is a Filipino and I wouldn't trade her for anyone - Filipinos are More than welcome in the US because they are Extremely hard working, and very smart and very decent people. I thank God for her and for your entire nation! I would be so proud if I were you!
