BREAKING: China and the Philippines deploy more warships to disputed Scarborough Shoal off the Northwestern Philippines
The standoff in the South China Sea between the naval forces of the Philippines and China is in danger of escalating, as the U.S. continues to watch anxiously.

China has now sent a third ship to support its claim to the area known as Scarborough Shoal off the northwestern Philippines.

Philippine warships attempting to arrest the crews of a Chinese fishing fleet that had entered the territory sparked the latest dispute between the two Asian countries.

They were stopped from doing so by the arrival of two Chinese surveillance ships, which then ordered the Philippine warships to leave the area.

They refused arguing that its Philippine territory and have since sent a second warship to the area.

"We're not retreating from our own territory," Alexander Pama, Chief Vice Admiral of the Philippine navy said.

China also claims the rich fishing ground as its own despite it being within 200 nautical miles of the Philippines.

"The timing of the dispute suggests China is keen to send a message to the Philippines and the U.S. ahead of their bilateral military exercise, and to assert its authority in the disputed area," Maria Patrikainen, a global insight analyst at IHS told Fox News.

The escalation in naval forces has caused consternation in capital across the Asian region and further afield.

"We urge all parties to exercise full restraint and seek a diplomatic resolution," a State Dept. spokesperson said.

On the surface this would seem to be a minor dispute between two countries but it is in fact part of a much wider problem that may lead to U.S. military involvement.

If you would read up on the issue, they did not flee, the warship was replaced by the coast guard temporarily, the phillipines say they are not backing down and assert control over their territory.





""
The Coast Guard vessel relieved the Philippine Navy from its role of enforcing maritime law in the contested South China Sea, Alcantara said.


Article continues below

"Our navy is still there. We will support the Philippine Coast Guard [at the Scarborough Shoal]. We are still asserting our claim of our ownership of the land, of the shoal. That's very clear," Alcantara said, in response to a question on the impact of the departure of the warship in the contested area.
What are the facts?

Yeah, I do not think the US would help either. The reason they might step in is would be to keep a presence in that area of the South Pacific, but didn't the Philippines kick most of the US bases out years ago? Are there any bases US bases left in the Philippines?

China needs to back the heck off. The "disputed" territory is within 200 miles of the Philippines.

200 Miles is the International standard of ownership. The Shoals belong to the Philippines. Therefore the Chinese are invading the Philippines' territory.

China is in the wrong here.

Backed into a corner? Okay. Let's hear you say then when China goes for Taiwan. When Chine goes for the Phillippines. When China goes for Australia.

And if the USA is not there to protect you, what will you do? Will you fight back? Okay. China nukes Sydney and orders Australia to surrender.

You keep figthing. China nukes another Australian city. You keep fighting. They keep nuking until YOU give up. You can't run to the USA for help.

So many people wanted the USA gone and its gone. What will you do? I want YOUR answer, AC.

Unless china sent in a large fleet, Phillipines can put up a good resistance,as their ships are at least as good as China's

Any major Chinese fleet movement into the area would cause the Japanese and US fleets to move in.

Vietnam also has an alliance ,signed last year ,with Phillipines to confront this type of action jointly.

China is not a naval power,,,,,yet,and should wait to conduct this type of behaviour.
