Philippines revives defence pact with US as China threat grows

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

Filipino and US forces are restarting a two-week joint military exercise which was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
President Rodrigo Duterte cancelled his country’s defence pact with Washington last year.
But with regional tensions rising and China expanding its military presence, he has reversed that decision.
Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila, Philippines.

    China has trapped itself in a hole it has dug and forgot to bring a ladder

    After many generations of the one child policy, the average chinese person has to earn ONE salary, to support the life of 4, 5, or 6 people (parents, grandparents, self, child). And as chinese labour stop being cheap like before, the time window for the China Boom is slowly closing.

    If China plays by the rules, it will suffer a second century of humiliation. But most probably Beijing will not accept the idea of suffering honourably. It will lie, rob, scam, and steal to stay alive. WW3 is inevitable.

    Does China have ANY allies in case of war?
    They’re starting trouble with ALL their neighbors.
    If war breaks out and Taiwan, India, Vietnam, Japan, S Korea, Philipines, Australia,(Tibet), all gang up on China, plus the USA, China will get crushed.
    War with no friends is not fun.

    Duterte is a traitor. He is China’s pet. We can’t rely on him to protect our sovereignty. I’m glad that a powerful nation had stepped up to help us. China is a coward, bullying smaller countries. They should pick somebody their own size, like India and the United States.

    If US would use the VFA as a bargaining chip to force the philippines to settle down with US’s demands, then Ph wont restore it 100% then US may lose leverage over the south china sea and maintain a strong presence and protection fo its local PH investments and control of soouth china sea. Etong si Hontiveros, napakakitid ng pagiisip…

    The only thing China will understand is strength, you don’t back down or appease a bully. Duterte as President of the Philippines should have the interest of the Philippine people and its territorial economic zones as non negotiable. It is remarkable how silent he has been about this issue that goes to the heart of Filipino sovereignty in protecting their own economic resources of their EEZ. Very strange actions by Duterte by not saying a word to the Filipino people publicly. What kind of leader is that.

    The Philippines should cut all diplomatic ties with China for not respecting the sovereignty of the Philippines. This is not a declaration of war so there should not be any form of massacre to happen. Above all President Duterte should at least protect the dignity of the country. Claiming that Philippine is no match against China’s power is a given, but which country is going to war? The Philippines is a strategically located country and China will lose out on that. Meanwhile the Philippine should create closer military alliance with India, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, South Korea, etc.

    that’s the thing when the president withdraw from the defensive pact China saw this as an opportunity to expand while the country is weak
    don’t forget they have a great old strategist

    “Attack their weaknesses. Emerge to their surprise. All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

    The US wants to “strengthen our military” with their military materiel through military aid. But the question is, we had been “friends” since 1898, why haven’t they strengthened our economy so we could buy or have our own military industry? Why did they make China the factory of their economy, that allowed China to have that dramatic rise, and not the Philippines?

    Why the US of A has Military bases around the world? Like in Japan, S. Korea, Australia, Taiwan, Germany, Italy, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Kuwait, formerly Subic Naval base, former Clark Air base, just to name a few.

    I think our US government needs to reassess this for 6 months so the Philippines leader can have his independent policy. He has nothing to back it up of course when the Chinese navy is circling he Philippines like angry sharks. Maybe for the sake of his people he will show a little appreciation which is something the US so rarely receives from the countries it rescued in WW2. Remember General Douglas MacArthur came back to save the people.

    That’s good but the Philippines should also be careful because US has its so called “Interest” specially when it comes to oil and other resources.

    The Philippines should be more independent in defending there own soverenity and territory rather than just relying to other nation to defend the country. They should start building our own industries that would provide equipments and assets like ships, tanks and rifles.

    Collaborating to other nations to gain knowledge and experience to new technologies like missiles, planes and radars.
