BREAKING TENSE STANDOFF: Philippine Governments Largest Warship Is Engaged With China Vessels At Disputed Shoal!!!
The Philippines said its largest warship was engaged in a tense standoff with Chinese surveillance vessels Wednesday at a disputed South China Sea shoal, after the ship attempted to arrest Chinese fishermen but was blocked by the surveillance craft.

Foreign Secretary Albert Del Rosario summoned Chinese Ambassador Ma Keqing to resolve the dangerous impasse diplomatically. Del Rosario's office said in a statement that the Scarborough Shoal "is an integral part of Philippine territory" and Filipino authorities would assert sovereignty over the offshore area.

The shoal lies off the northwestern Philippine province of Zambales. China and the Philippines have been disputing ownership of the shoal, in addition to the Spratly Islands and other areas in the South China Sea.

Philippine Foreign Affairs spokesman Raul Hernandez said the situation at the shoal "has not changed as of this morning. There's a standoff."

Funny this happened... I was just reading about something like this happening on BI yesterday...

An Outraged Chinese General Tells The Philippines It's Their 'Last Chance'


The territorial dispute in the South China Sea between Vietnam, the Philippines, and China is far from over.

The three countries have been going back-and-forth over rights to supposed oil and gas reserves throughout the region, with Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei also attempting to lay claim on the deposits.

There were hopes the issue would be brought closer to resolution during the recent Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit in Cambodia, but that get-together seems to have had exactly the opposite effect.

Brian Spegele at the WSJ's China Real Time Reports that Chinese Major General Luo Yuan left the summit, got back to China and penned a warning to the island nation that he published in the Global Times newspaper.

In it, he warns the Philippines that it's facing its "last chance" to reach an agreement on the resource laden South China Sea and the Spratly Islands.

In one swift move Luo brought renewed attention on what Spegele calls the "region’s hottest potential military flashpoint."

Always refreshingly outspoken, Luo didn't stop there and continued by saying "The biggest miscalculation of the Philippines is that it has misestimated the strength and willpower of China to defend its territorial integrity.”

China would crush The Philippines like a worm. There must be more to it then what they are telling us.

"The Philippine Navy has only one fleet, the Philippine Fleet. The terms "Philippine Navy" and "Philippine Fleet" are therefore interchangeable. As a type command, the Fleet has four (4) major units: the Ready Force, Service Force, Patrol Force, and Assault Craft Force; one (1) support group, the Fleet Support Group; and two (2) special units, the Naval Air Group and Naval Special Warfare Group."

China would crush the Philippines in air and sea battles but on land China would have their asses handed to them.

Filipinos have a big gun culture and the idea of a gun behind every blade of grass would apply in the Philippines.

There are artisans in the Philippines who make homemade guns that look like it came out of an Israeli weapons factory.

No shit.

China can bully the Philippines in using their waterways but forget about the pussy and oil.
