Dutae already has Communist Chinese PLA Troops in Manila and in Pangasinan (Former Clark/ Subic) on Filipino military bases. He already declared that the Philippines is a Province of China (in jest, but the Chinese-provided Fentanyl he takes is a powerful drug). 2022 can’t come soon enough, but he is already grooming Sara Dutae (daughter) or BongBong Marcos (son of Ferdinand Marcos) to be the next President.

An estimated half-million Communist Chinese legal and illegal workers are now in the Philippines. No one leaves China without Communist Party permission or ties.

““I really don’t mind, if they would like to do that,” Trump said on Wednesday. “We’ll save a lot of money.”

Trump called the bluff.

Because the people of the PI identify with the US.

Duterte is likely to find himself shot by “domestic stakeholders”. He increases his chances of survival by eating crow and trying to salvage what he can.

“If the mutual defense treaty collapses, it would be a huge win for China,” Grossman said. “This would send exactly the wrong message to Washington’s remaining allies and partners – that is, you simply shouldn’t trust that the US will defend or assist you against China, and it is therefore right to question the value of the American presence in the Indo-Pacific in the years to come.”

I fail to follow the logic - the message to our remaining allies and partners is that if you cancel our treaty, we'll leave? I should think that reassuring, myself. If we do return it will be a mutual decision based on mutual interests, not any obligation the U.S. has undertaken to keep other people's waters free on principle. It's an expensive principle.

I do not think China be a threat much longer due to the virus.

Will the Chinese citizen be so upset at the lost of love ones, to rise up against the communist system?
