Source of the Marcos's wealth





Lots of recent reporting in the Philippine newspapers about the source of the Marcos's wealth.  An article outlining where some their vast fortune could have come from is linked below.  President Marcos claimed he found the Yamashita treasure while he was a guerrilla fighting the Japanese during WWII.  The picture taken on March 11, 1974 shows former Japanese imperial army soldier Hiroo Onoda (right) offering his military sword to Ferdinand Marcos to express his surrender at MalacaƱang Palace in Manila. Onoda, who hid in the Philippine jungles for three decades because he did not believe World War II was over, died in Tokyo on January 17, 2014, at the age of 91

Imelda Admits She Has Yamashita Gold

Wow. A senior Philippine politician reported that Imelda Marcos said she had 7,000 bars of gold she would be willing to donate to the Philippine government. I wonder if she keeps the gold with her shoes. Would explain nicely where Yamashita's treasure went. See-- my Steel's Treasure and Steel's Gold novels are accurate.  See the article:  http://philippineslifestyle.com/blog/2017/08/30/politician-imelda-offered-hand-back-gold-worth-nearly-300-billion-dollars/

Philippines' Duterte threatens to end peace talks after NPA attack


Well, you would have thought the NPA was an extinct movement by now--it is Asia's longest running insurgency.  But, dire political, social injustices like corruption and economic problems confronting the Philippines continue today; consequently, there will always be a spot for the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People's Army until those issues are solved. Interesting news article on a recent NPA attack.
