Note the question mark ? at the end of the title.

I don't see it happening. No SOFA, No Bases agreement. It would be based on a VFA that can be terminated on a whim.

While perhaps good news for the local economy and maybe closer defensive capabilities I have to offer that the video supplied was made up in someones garage with the typical robotic voice of the dark side.
Let's see what happens real time before we jump up and down. OMO.

Cheers, Steve.

And what about the massive infrastructure being put in, Chinese money I assume. The Chinese aren't going take it lightly losing their "buying the country out from under our feet", I mean investment.

Don't worry about the Chinese; they'll just build a few more islands.

Another update from this fake channel probably from China it has the robot voice but... Still it speculates what appears to be happening correctly.

Video is more Propaganda. Not going to happen.

Such a huge investment is not prudent. VFA is not set in stone, is only valid in 6 month increments and can be cancelled on a whim.


The Philippines’ latest move extends the VFA for 6 more months, and is renewable for another 6 months after.
