    Yep, and their intentions are being questioned granting they were dead silent on the Spratley's issue. Their movement is dead and what's left is a rotting carcass. Two generations from now they will just be a distant memory.

    What do you mean? The US is very much welcomed in the Philippines... more than the Chinese.

    Lulz Philippines better start buying off our Senators and strike a deal with LM, cuz its gonna need a few billion for a new navy each year to roll with the PLA Navy or else you get a repeat of what the Vietnamese got in the 70s and 80s. PLA Navy likes to call on other country's bluffs.
