Accusations have been publicly made that the National Government are not-so-discreetly preventing this crusade from reaching Pag-asa Island.
I will not even bother to point an accusatory finger at the specific agencies involved. Obviously, they are just following orders.
The buck stops squarely at Malacanang.
What is Malacanang's motive for doing this?
In order not to anger Communist China?
I thought we are past that issue already?
We have already hauled their greedy ass to the Court of World Opinion. Other than opening fire on their illegal occupation troops on those fake islands, I cannot think of anything that could possibly make them even more angry.
So I think, this is just another manifestation of our Risk-Averse Mentality as a people.
Malacanang does not just want to take any more risk vis-a-vis Communist China. Although Malacanang had no choice but to align herself with Uncle Sam in the World Order War (WOW), at the back of her mind, there is this "What if Communist China wins?" fear. This explains our seemingly two-steps-forward, one-step-backward approach to Military Modernization (e.g. we bought the ships but not the ASMs; we bought the jets but not the SAMs, etc.).
It is time to come to your senses Malacanang! We are on the winning side in the WOW. Morally and Militarily. So shed your Psychological baggage. Focus on winning this War!
The 10,000-Youth Kalayaan Journey will go a long way in elevating the visibility of the West Philippine Sea Front in the WOW. The mere ability to muster this number of Filipino Youth for this Patriotic Cause is already a Moral and Psychological Victory over Communist China!
If the Weather and the Site Logistics are the main obstacles that prevent them from completing their Journey, allow them to just fly-in a symbolic number of representatives to Pag-asa Island. But the bottom line is...
They must complete this Journey!
And the main obstacle to their Journey cannot be the President of the Republic!
