This is going on for years now and if this progresses, it will disrupt free shipping routes in the West Philippine Sea, WPS.
Why blame the Western Allies like the US and Europe. They fuel the economy of China with technology transfer, got rich and supplied great technological knowledge to the secluded communist world. They even copied the U.S. F35 fighter with half the size and capability but it won’t be long when China can make a first class fighter that can out match the West can offer.
China has more submarines and is planning for a second Aircraft carrier. Only Japan is doing some action. And I wish big brother USA help the Philippines in a way we help them fight terrorism.
Help make the sea safer and free to all to cross it.
Hope things get better.
