Default Subic Bay Might Be Sold To The Chinese

What happens to the country if the Chinese buy Subic ports? For me this just might be the deal breaker in spending the rest of my life in the Philippines. One would naturally think that this could never happen right? But then look again at all the "unchallenged" changes in the South China Sea etc. Maybe it's just about time to cut and run!

After what happened to our US Navy base with the ever-increasing lease rates, I think we were supposed to cough of 77 million dollars a year to continue leasing at the time we gave up and left for good in 1991 and I was stationed in Guam and heard rumors from Officers we would never get stuck in that quagmire again and so China would be stuck in a similar situation of a real money drain.

I sure do miss having an exchange and commissary and if the base was still there I'd live in Subic, so many citizens lost their jobs after we left.

I think that China is using it's loan programs to take over ports they want. They have succeeded in acquiring two ports that way. If the Philippines takes out any loans from China they might be in the same situation.

The potential is not a love affair with China but more likely the rape of the Philippines by China. There will be no going back once the dominoes start to fall.

Exactly,,,,, welcome to the new and larger China formerly known as the Philippines. If the US were to back out of any interest here this would become a slave labor capital for China as they exploit the natural resources of the country and the South China Sea.

I don’t think it’ll be too long before �� hits the fan between the US and China. Kind of a scary thought but, they are getting to be a bit out of hand with their raping of other countries resources, the S China sea buildup, pillaging of other countries WWII ships (war graves) and the saber rattling @ Taiwan. Add to that the talk of them sinking our carriers and ramming our destroyers all adds up to a recipe for disaster.

I have repeatedly said this as well and I feel within my bones that within 10 years this will happen as well.

According to the experts (scientists?) it will all be under water in another 30-50 years as the sea level increases so who cares.

Countries influence comes and goes, America took over from the British empire, the biggest to ever exist. Now the US is waning and China is in ascendancy. The world moves on.

Look up "Is the Philippines the next Djibouti?" at GlobalBalita.com website. Pretty much matches my thoughts on this subject.
