Dirty Philippine politics in shameless display

These are instant noodles that are part of the relief packages that the government of President Benigno Aquino III is giving out to victims of Haiyan. Unfortunately, these instant noodles had to be repacked and placed in packages with so much political color, as yellow and the yellow ribbon are the color and symbol of Aquino and his political party, the Liberal Party. At the same time, please take note that only places where the local executives are members of the Liberal Party or are aligned with Aquino receive substantial aid from the government while areas where politicians are from the opposition are deliberately being abandoned. The American government and the UN should take note of this. We cannot tolerate the politicking that is currently occurring here as more people suffer and, worse, die due to Haiyan's aftermath and the corruption of Aquino and other Filipino politicians. President Obama and UN Secretary-General Ban, please intervene and prevent Aquino and the other politicians from continuously hijacking the relief effort and causing tremendous suffering not only to the victims of Haiyan but also to the rest of the Filipino people!
