MANILA (AFP) - China told its citizens Thursday they were not safe in the Philippines and its state media warned of war, as a month-long row over rival claims in the South China Sea threatened to spill out of control. Chinese travel agencies announced they had suspended tours to the Philippines, under government orders, and the embassy in Manila advised its nationals already in the country to stay indoors ahead of planned protests. http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/13654401/china-warns-citizens-as-row-with-philippines-escalates/
Thanks for that. I was unaware of that development.
Those boys better start backing up a bit. The Filipinos are our friends. Long time, no see -- Chinese not invited.
BTW, I don't think it'll be just Subic and Clark that'll be busy. If I'm CNO, I want to start putting facilities in places like Ulithi and Yap and Lingga Roads -- all the old names from the Big Show. Leyte. And yeah, why not? -- Rabaul, too. The Aussies and Indians and Japanese will want a place to park locally, too.
You don't want to be short of perching-spots if you're going to be in a showdown with the Chinese over the law of the sea and people running around proclaiming territorial seas and this and that mare clausum, the way the Chinese are doing.
