On ANC's Beyond Politics, former President Fidel V. Ramos said the Philippines should be building its relationship with its traditional ally, the US, instead of bringing up old issues that destroy friendship and goodwill.

While he is sorry to say it, Ramos said, President Rodrigo Duterte should not focus on past transgressions by other countries against the Philippines, calling it "20th century thinking."

"We are now in the 21st century...We must lead our people to a better land, where all of these frailties of humankind are being made to disappear little by little," he said.

Duterte has repeatedly brought up the Bud Dajo massacre and the Balangiga massacre by the Americans, in his critique of US policy toward its former colony. -- Beyond Politics, ANC, October 11, 2016
