Duterte is doing his best to keep the friendship between Philippines and China, but Politicians and personalities who are in America's pockets are increasing their attacks and pressure to discredit his efforts.

Some of the folks in the Philippines just pull or manufacture economic loss numbers out of their you know what...the Chinese activities in their so called West Philippine Sea apparently costs the country 1.4 Trillion pesos a year? How are they calculating this loss from? And from what sector?

Mainland media thinks US want to take SCS disputed man made islands from China if China invade Taiwan.
@Oldschool Sir its a given since its a war? the question is can the American hold it? Sir like I said SCS is a Chinese lake, they had what we called a Preponderance domination. Whatever quality the US equipment had those American bases will be under attack and the question of resupply persist and Sir if war do happen it will short cause it will lead to a Nuclear War.

on Monday, calling China an “ugly oaf” and demanding it “get the f*** out” of Philippine maritime waters. His colourful language followed reports that Chinese coastguard ships had harassed their Philippine counterparts in the vicinity of the shoal, which is claimed by both countries.

The shoal lies 220km east of the Philippine island of Luzon and is within the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone but is also within the nine-dash line that Beijing uses to stake its claims to more than 90 per cent of the South China Sea.

My friend, no capitalist regime can be true ally of China. Capitalists always go to the highest bidder, not to mention China's public dominated economic system is incompatible with the fundamental interest of the ruling capitalist elite. Their oppressed poor masses may get funny ideas from China, like they may not have to be poor forever if they get a different system.

Duterte and a couple of his people are still cool with China, but unfortunately, it seems his foreign minister has gone rogue and started making this filibuster. We have to recognize the fact that American influence and ability to coerce someone to do their bidding is particularly strong in countries like the Philippines.

Actually interested to get @ansy1968's take on it - he seemed fairly pro-China when the Myanmar coup kicked off... gut feeling is that he's doing it to show he can be "tough on China" to win votes in the upcoming election?

You must understand that most Filipinos are pro-America and quasi nationalist at the same time when it comes to their "islands" being usurped, occupied, by China. In the minds of many Filipinos America will be there to back their bark in order to have some bite when it comes to any potential conflict with China. More importantly, the Filipino public writ large does not fear or in awe of China's military capability because most of them have been misinformed regarding Chinese military capabilities and the gargantuan gap/asymmetry between the two countries. Plus, the negative perception of anything China made is always of inferior quality which is why most of those people were reluctant and easily suaded by the negative news and propaganda regarding Sinovac vaccine.

If anyone of you can stomach to watch any of that country's public hearings on military readiness or anything related to China, none of their politicians, military morons would submit any semblance of military assessment that's grounded in reality. Most of their military four stars are not worth their salt as they tend to be corrupt and incompetent morons who all have blind spots for anything and everything America. And some of them are actually schooled in the U.S. military academies like West Point, Annapolis, and at Command and General Staff College (CGSC). Just look at their militarys performance 4 years ago when it battled their country's Islamic separatist at the battle of Marawi. The military operation took 5 months to completely subdue Islamic rebels that didn't have any modern Armour tanks, supply logistics, air force etc. While I acknowledge that urban warfare is one of the toughest combat arena to operate under the Philippine militarys performance was left wanting considering that their military has been geared, trained, manned and operated to fight against such type of enemies (Low intensity conflict).

But some of their people thinks like Jai Hind Indians as they assume that the Philippine military can replicate their performance against the PLA as they apparently did back in the Korean War at the battle of Yuldong. Watch any YouTube video that talks about the Korean War, you'll see comments from Filipino nationalists extolling their soldiers valour and heroism in stopping the PLA advance which most of them then use as evidence that Filipinos can fight with China toe to toe - yeah in some alternative f..ng universe.
