'WAG PUMAPEL: Leave national security matters to defense experts - Esperon to Carpio

Retired Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio is on the news again.
Early this week he suggested that the country should jointly patrol with Malaysia and Vietnam disputed areas in the South China Sea to check China’s aggressiveness in the area while the countries involve are currently busy with the novel coronavirus disease or COVID-19.

“We don’t do that because if we make a mistake, you can trigger an accidental war. Navies really do not do that unless you want to bully another country,” he told an online forum with the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines.

“I think China doesn’t want to let this pandemic crisis go to waste by taking advantage,” he said. “We are battling a pandemic that came from China and China’s taking advantage of our difficulty right now.” He adds.

Esperon shuts down Carpio

National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon calls out Carpio and said that et defense experts handle security matters.

"Kung ang iniisip ni Justice Carpio ay pakikipag-giyera eh iwanan na lang niya iyan sa defense [department] at kinikilala natin siya sa larangan ng hustisya, eh huwag na siyang masyadong pumapel sa pakikipag-giyera," Esperon said.
(If Justice Carpio is thinking of going to war then he should leave that to the defense [department] since we know him in the field of justice, he shouldn't concern himself with going to war.)
Esperon explains that the country should use its resources wisely and should study thoroughly the matters in the disputed waters carefully.
"Huwag tayong pumasok sa alanganin," Esperon said.
(Let's not put ourselves in an awkward situation.)
