Philippines moves troops, supplies to disputed S. China Sea island claimed by Beijing
he Philippines has begun moving troops and equipment to a disputed island in the South China Sea which is claimed by both Manila and Beijing, a Philippines general said. It comes ahead of construction, including lengthening an airstrip on the island.
The troops and initial supplies arrived at Pag-asa Island last week, Lt. Gen. Raul del Rosario, head of the Philippine military's Western Command, said as quoted by AP.

Some 1.6 billion pesos (US$32 million) has been set aside for construction on the island, which will include reinforcing and lengthening and airstrip and building dock, according to the official.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

Their military does not have enough planes to justify improvements to the airstrip. Money would be better spent on other improvements on the island.

Improving the runway may only aid china should they get into a conflict and china moves on the island.

Wonder if any USAID money going into this project. USAID has built several runways in the Philippines over the last 10-15 years. If so, then the runway improvements are meant for American aircraft and it makes more sense.
You can stand me up at the gates of hell…. I won’t back down.

If it doesn’t seem logical it is likely bullshit.

if it might be possible it is usually bullshit.

If it makes sense it is probably bullshit.
