Department of National Defense (DND) spokesman Arsenio Andolong said the military is just awaiting the green light from Malacañang to deploy forces and defend the country’s sovereignty.
“We are ready to go into action if we are ordered to do so, not really in the context that we are ready to go to war but to defend our sovereignty and territory. That’s what we’re going to do,” Andolong said.
The Department of Foreign Affairs earlier said the presence of Chinese ships around Pag-asa is illegal as the Philippines has sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the island, which China calls Thitu.
Japan did the same thing before ww2, develop trade to build up the military prior to war.
Do they have us over the trade barrel?
Best to begin to move off shore production to India, as is beginning to be seen here.
Of course bring American pride and jobs back.
We have all been trained to buy cheap, not quality, could we all go back to buying quality
American made products that make America great again?
We should suspend ALL Trade with China if this gets to be a shooting situation ... At least until we run out of I-Phones and toilet paper....
so we created a mess with slave labor over thier build and move a lot of our hightech and lowtech companys over to china and feed their beast dragon military complex up to takeover us what else can we screw up now
