From what I’ve read, the Philippines Air Force has a total of 3 older C-130s (in pictures they have 4 blades on each propeller) while the US Marine Corp, the smallest branch of the US military, was able to fly in 2 modern KC-130s from Japan within a day (the ones with 6 blades). and has dozens more coming, along with larger C-17 jet transports from the U.S. Air Force that can also land at Tacloban and other small airports.
In times of crisis, you see a person’s best and worst qualities. Sadly it has shown that our president is definately not a man of the people. The people will not forget his words and behaviors during the time of need. I am ashamed we have a hypocrite, uncaring, coward to represent us. Lord help us during our people during our time of need.
