The UN is telling the Philippines to clean up its act or get out of the UN. This is usually reserved for countries like Libiya or the likes. The latest incident shows that the Philippines is not serious in its fight against terrorism. The are know cases where US military aide is getting into the wrong hands. Repeatedly USA has told the Philippines to clean up its act.

If the Philippines wants USA to help them over issues like the Sprately Island, the least they can do is run an honest government. USA and the rest of the world is getting fedup of throwing foreign aide down a Filipono black hole.

Yeah. It is indeed it is quite sad and alarming if the Philippines is removed as UN Member. We will loss a lot of previleges and the world will look us badly. Foreign investors will fly away from the country living millions to poverty. Ang it looks like the Tuwid na Daan is not working. I guess to curb corruption, it should start from the people themselves. 2016 is near and election is coming people should vote wisely, vote for those who have credibility and not just popularity. True and Honest election is the start of true change in the Philippines.

The harsh reality is that the Philippines is not going to be a "corrupt-free" country in the next few years until all the government officials are ousted from their positions because personally, I don't think any of them is clean and has good intentions for my country. Philippines will not be a third-world country anymore if only our taxes have been put into good use, not on these corrupt people's pockets. Government officials are getting richer, Filipino citizens are getting poorer.

No one is serious enough to fight corruption. Politicians are butterflies that float from one party to another. One party will mostly attack only other parties, and will not clean their own ranks. It will take someone with a strong will and strong connection to finally clean the country up. The current government is not doing what it promised to do...

Why the Philippines only? How about Mexico, Columbia, Sudan, Syria and Iran? Those Latin American countries I've mentioned are guilty of housing big-time drug king pins and cartels. Their governments also kill their own citizens - basically anyone who opposes the status quo. Sudan, Syria and Iran are guilty of terrorist and militant activities. Had our corruption killed UN member-states? No.

Exactly. I doubt the corruption in the Philippines is as bad or worse than some of the other ones mentioned.

The Philippines is bad as they say it is. Corruptions and lying is part of the culture and it is sad. I've lived here on and off for 6 years and it's beyond pathetic. I truly believe that the Philippines is in the UN just to get special treatment and privileges, that includes foreign aid.

Til this day they have not done anything about the aftermath of Hurricane Yolanda. Tacloban looks like a garbage dump and the Government isn't doing anything about it. All the foreign aid and money hasn't gone to the people in relief efforts.

This is true. The Philippines and it's Government is so corrupt that they think they can go on forever with this charade. The UN should do an audit to see where their money is really going to. You be surprised as to where it is actually going.

The government needs to change and also, if it is still corrupt than people will fight over the country and civil war will happen as people have not got a lot of trust on the government and don't think it has done a lot. I reckon they need to find out where the money goes too and it has not been used in the relief effort that it was meant to be done for. I hope that, United Nations get to the bottom of this as Phiippines on it's own may not investigate properly and could hide things if done by itself.

The Philippines' corruption is quite incurable as of the moment. Its officials owning hectares and billion pesos worth of properties and the even the public knows it. It's sad.
