China to board, expel ships in disputed sea

PH military hits violation of int’l shipping rights



BEIJING—China has granted its border patrol police the right to board and expel foreign ships entering disputed waters in the South China Sea, including parts known as West Philippine Sea, state media reported on Thursday.

The rules, which come into effect on January 1, will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters and order them to change course or stop sailing,” the official China Daily reported.

The Philippines, one of the obvious targets of the new rules, could not confirm the reports on Thursday.

Raul Hernandez, spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), said the agency was gathering more information on the new Chinese move.

“If it is true, it will pose a concern to the Philippines and the international community,” Hernandez said.

In Malacañang, presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said: “Instead of asking the Philippine government to comment on a position taken by a local Chinese government official, why doesn’t the press ask the Chinese Embassy here and confirm if that is also the position they are adopting?”

But the Philippine military found the new Chinese rule “too much.”

“That cannot be. That’s a violation of the international passage (rights),” Marine Lieutenant General Juancho Sabban, commander of military forces in the western Philippines (Wescom), which covers the West Philippine Sea, said in a phone interview with defense reporters at Camp Aguinaldo.

“That’s too much. While we are exerting all peaceful means (to resolve the territorial dispute), that is what they (are doing),” Sabban said.

No war

President Aquino, however, does not see the territorial dispute with China as leading to war.

Speaking to an audience of grade school students at The Learning Tree Child Growth Center in Sikatuna Village in Quezon City on Tuesday, Aquino said the Philippines would protect its exclusive economic zone.

But that did not mean the country would go to the extent of fighting a war with China, he said.

Noting that China was a nuclear power, Aquino said the Philippines would fight for its territory in the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea.

Asked about China’s position that the Philippines was misinterpreting the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea provision on the exclusive economic zone, Aquino said: “Well, obviously there will be a difference of opinion owing to the fact that we are on different sides of defense with their country, in reference to this particular issue. But we’ve always maintained that our approach to the dispute in the West Philippine Sea is a rules-based approach.”

Rival claims

China’s assertion of sovereignty over the stretch of water off its south coast and to the east of mainland Southeast Asia has set it directly against Vietnam and the Philippines, while Brunei, Taiwan and Malaysia also lay claim to parts of the sea.

Hainan, which likes to style itself as China’s answer to Hawaii or Bali with its resorts and beaches, is the province responsible for administering the country’s extensive claims to the myriad islets and atolls in the sea.

China Daily said the government would also send new maritime surveillance ships to join the fleet responsible for patrolling the sea, believed to be rich in oil and gas and straddling shipping lanes between East Asia and Europe and the Middle East.

The new rules come after Beijing issued new passports containing a map showing its claim to almost the whole of the South China Sea, infuriating its neighbors.

Vietnam and the Philippines refuse to stamp the documents, which Indonesia on Thursday called “counterproductive.”

Both Vietnam and the Philippines have protested the map, with the Philippines calling it an “excessive declaration of maritime space in violation of international law.”

The state-run Global Times reported on Thursday that Hainan passed new regulations this week allowing local police “to board, seize and expel foreign ships illegally entering the province’s sea areas.”

Activities defined as illegal by the new regulation include “illegally halting or dropping anchor… and carrying out publicity campaigns that endanger China’s national security,” the official Xinhua news agency said.

Hainan province administers around 2 million square kilometers of sea waters, including the Spratly islands, which are also claimed in whole or in part by the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and Taiwan.

Panatag Shoal

The vast territory that China claims also includes Panatag Shoal (Scarborough Shoal), a resource-rich part of the sea within the Philippines’ 370-kilometer exclusive economic zone, where Chinese and Philippine ships faced off with each other from early April to mid-June, both sides asserting sovereignty over the area.

Asked about the reports on Thursday, Beijing’s foreign ministry press officer Hong Lei said only: “It is the legitimate right of the sovereign state to carry out maritime management.”

The Global Times quoted Li Zhaojie, a professor at Beijing’s Tsinghua University, as saying the regulation could lead to stricter enforcement of Beijing’s right to expel ships entering its territory illegally.

Li said these rights were granted by a United Nations convention.

“In the past, when foreign ships broke the UN convention, the best thing our patrol could do was chase them out of China’s waters. The new regulation will change that, and give the patrol force the legal means to actually do its job.”

The Philippine Coast Guard, which on Sunday said it was ready to deploy a ship to Panatag to resume the face-off with China, had no comment on Thursday’s report on the new Chinese rule.

Pull out ships

But Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said the Philippines was still asking China to withdraw three ships from Panatag Shoal almost six months after it promised to pull out.

Del Rosario said that while the Philippines withdrew its own ships from Panatag on June 4, as agreed by both countries, China’s three government ships remained in the area.

“They have three ships in the vicinity right now. They have never really left. We are continuing to ask them to honor our sovereignty and . . . we are asking them to pull out their ships as agreed upon,” he said.

The Philippines and Vietnam have accused China of ramping tensions in the area, with the map of China on new passports showing the disputed parts of the sea as the latest provocative move by Beijing.

The Philippines will implement next week a new procedure for processing visa applications for Chinese travelers carrying the new passport with the controversial map.

The Philippines is not stamping the new Chinese passports. But it is stamping visas for Chinese travelers on a separate form.

India has started stamping its own map onto visas for Chinese visitors as the passports also show the disputed border areas of Arunachai Prades and Aksai Chin as Chinese territory.

Beijing has attempted to play down the diplomatic fallout from the passports, with the foreign ministry arguing the map was “not made to target any specific country.”


But Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa on Thursday said the new Chinese passports were “counterproductive.”

Although it is not a claimant to territory in the West Philippine Sea, Indonesia has mediated in the dispute between China and Southeast Asian nations with claims to parts of the sea.

Indonesia is also a major supplier of commodities to China, which is increasingly exploring mines and constructing smelters in Indonesia to fuel its economy.

Natalegawa, who has hopped between claimant nations this year over the issue, warned that the passports would worsen the already tense dispute and said Jakarta would convey its position to Beijing.

“These actions are counterproductive and will not help settle the disputes,” he said in an interview with the Jakarta Post daily.

“We perceive the Chinese move as disingenuous, like testing the waters, to see its neighbors’ reactions,” he said.

Natalegawa said the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) should concentrate on finalizing a code of conduct as a first step to ease tensions over the territorial disputes.

“I hope that we, Asean and China, can focus on dialogue,” he said.—Reports from Nikko Dizon, Tarra Quismundo, Michael Lim Ubac, Jerry Esplanada, AFP and Reuters

    “Li said these rights were granted by a United Nations convention.”  Wishful thinking pa. Making the Chinese readers believe it. What UN convention is he talking about?  Ang lakas talaga na loob nitong mga tsekwa palibhasa malaki ang pautang nila sa Amerika and at the same time neutral ang Amerika. Inviting trouble talaga itong bully. They still believe SCS is their territory. If that is so, we should assert ownerhip of the Philippine Sea and they cannot cross that sea with their cargos going to the US. Tingnan natin kung ano sasabihin nila.

        Kapatid, marami nga ang mamamatay, pero iyan talaga ang batas ng mundo. Kung dedepensahin ang interes ng bansa natin, kailangan na marami talaga ang magbubuwis ng buhay. Iyong US na nga, kahit sila ang pinaka malaking ekonomiya at pinaka malakas ngayon na military, nagbubuwis pa rin ng buhay sa lahat ng sulok ng mundo. Maraming Amerikano ang namamatay pa rin para sa bansa nila. Huwag na tayong mag isip na madedepensahan natin ang West Philippine Sea na walang magbubuwis ng buhay. Nag suggest ako na magbuo tayo ng grupo, at seryoso tayong maglalayag diyan sa West Philippine Sea at tingnan natin ang reaksyon ng Tsina. Ginagawa na iyan ng mga Taiwanese at Japanese sa Senkaku, at ginawa ng Chinese fishermen sa Spratley at Palawan ilang buwan lang nakaraan. Kaya tayo naman din ang maglalayag diyan para ipakita natin ang kagitingan ng Pilipino. Pati Vietnamese nagbuwis rin ng buhay sa Paracel noong tinira ang sailors nila ng PLN ng China. Maniwala kayo sa akin, kung hindi tayo handang magbuwis ng buhay, good bye West Philippine Sea na iyan. Pero kung lumaban tayo, kahit matalo, at least, nadepensahan natin ang dignidad at puri ng ating bansa. Mabuhay ka kababayan, at kung nasa US ka, please isama mo na ang US navy at mga fil am diyan na nag dedemo sa harap ng Chinese consulate. Magkaisa tayo at isimula na ang pagdepensa ng ating Inang Bayan. Hwag natin payagan na madungisan ang puri ng Inang Bayan habang pinapanood lang natin ang krimen na iyan

    “They have three ships in the vicinity right now. They have never really left. We are continuing to ask them to honor our sovereignty and . . . we are asking them to pull out their ships as agreed upon,” ————————>ALBERTO DEL ROSARIO

    It is clearl as day that these ships are on OUR territorial waters. Give those chinks a dose of their own medicine ! Board those ships, warn them, and send them scampering away back to their turf ! Or is our NAVY afraid of a confrontation ? Diplomacy is long dead. It is time to flex our armed forces’ muscles however “scrawny” they may be. Remember, Vietnam fought America and won !

  • Commentator

    The Philippines should now support an independent Taiwan and Tibet. We should also build ships now and if it is possible try to limit the coming of imports from communist China. I think communist China is creating trouble to cover their slowing economy.

  • Ibongpipit

    Along with adhering to diplomatic solution in resolving RP-China territorial dispute, Filipinos should also start tinkering about the adage of “if you can’t leak them, join them.”  Beginning January 1, more aggressive measures of guarding their so called South China Sea will take effect.

      While fighting war on the table and in the ocean exploring the option of peaceful co-existence with them is worth considering.  I would count this possibility ahead of weighing US dependence considering that in some quarters, repulsive signals are on the drumbeat including termination of VHF agreement.  If they want to show authentic independence, then a new atmosphere of reality and developing new friendship goes along well with it.
    It can possibly be a wiser option in lieu of the lessons of going against canon with bow and arrow, not to mention countless lives.  Unless we go for “bayaning patay”.

      The objective of those lawmakers who filed resolutions to terminate the VFA is to break US-Ph relations so that Filipinos will be helpless to make bilateral talks a possibility.    The US is not dumb not to see what these people are up to.

    Pinalalakas na ng China ang kanyang pag-ankin sa lugar if is going to happen, it is a serious threat for the Philippines who is “urong-sulong” in enforcing its claim. This is another elevation of the threat situation and must be dealt with by the Philippines with equal firmness, but gentle show of force…sa pamamagitan ng pagbabalik ng PCG sa Panatag shoal at maglagay ng estasyon para sa PCG ship…by now, we should have planned and equipped our ships to weather any storms or balakid ng China. Kailangan nating ayusin ang ating light house and construct ng matibay na matibay at ligtas na himpilan para kunwari sa shelter ng fishermens na ginawa nila sa Mischief reef noon. We should then palakasin ang gobyerno sa Pagasa at gawin ang school, wharf nila para sa cruise ships, at ayusin ang runway, kailangang imbitahan ng mayor ang tropa ng kano na gumawa ng himpilan sa Pagasa upang kadagdagan sa proteksyon ng lugar at kumita sa kanilang renta. Ang Reed bank by now naman ay siguro naman na meron ng sapat na mga barko at eroplano para proteksyunan ang area at ang radar na ipinangako ay nakatayo na. Kung wala pa, sa tagal na nating pinaplano ito at balitang bibili ng kung ano-anong pang proteksyon at wala pa rin eh, talagang tayo ay matatalo sa kabagalan ng ating gobyerno na kumilos…if not ibigay na lamang ang lugar kung hindi naman tayo handa na dapat ng pinaghandaan natin dahil, ang problemang ito ay hindi na bababa kung hindi ito ay lalo lamang tataas at kailangan nating mag-keep up.

    Kung manantili tayong urung-sulong sa ating batas ang ating bansa ay natatalo ng ating ginagawang walang ngipin. Kailangan na nating makipag-negotiate sa US para ibigay ang ating kahilingang lease to own a squadron of F-16/ F-18 Hornets para sa proteksyon. Sa mga susunod na taon, ang bansa aya ma-o-overwhelm sa sunod-sunod na level up ng China at kung hindi tayo kikilos para tapatan ang lakas na kanilang ilalagay to back up yung kanilang diplomatikong agression…balang araw gigising na lang tayo na wala na tayong magagawa…

      only idiots want to die fighting. if to die is your goal…please don’t join the fight. you will only be a burden and a headache in battle…and put your comrades in danger. to die is not our way to fight a war. TACTICALLY, WE KILL OUR ENEMIES…STRATEGICALLY, WE DESTROY ENEMY TARGETS OF MILITARY/ STRATEGIC VALUE.
      by our culture, we are pacifists and don’t want war. we are slow in anger and it is not in our taste to kill fellow human beings. it is for this reason that after slaughtering japanese in WW2 and chinese in korean war…we opted to send humanitarian civic action groups to vietnam and iraq instead. we asked america to close its military bases here…and did not arm ourselves because we have no intention to fight anybody…our intention was to be friends with everybody. we use diplomacy…we use negotiations. but when push comes to shove…no one can say…we did not exhaust all peaceful means.

      • CN

         It has been almost a year since we are exhausting peaceful means. So many times China has violated our rights in this matter; Chinese patrol boats harassing our fishermen, Chinese fishermen taking corals and sea sources.

        You miss my point zdrx, you have a wife? What if I screw your wife and daughter for almost a year now, will you still exert peaceful means?

      • zdrx

        you missed my point a mile wide. your previous post seems to suggest that your proud goal is to get killed in battle…AN IDIOT’S WAY TO FIGHT. stupid!…….why die in war, when you should live to kill plenty?

        if you die in battle it will reduce your unit’s firepower in attacking enemy positions. in defense…one less manpower, you open a flank of your unit…exposing your comrades. a dead body is a heavy burden for comrades to carry in case of withdrawal…slowing down tactical retreat and maneuvers.

        chillax baby! if the chinese are doing what they did…it doesn’t mean that the territory will become theirs. there’s a dire consequence for that to them. we had been deadly in battle…but times like this needs logic, not emotions. if we are peaceful and slow in anger it doesn’t mean we can not fight. if we are using diplomacy…it doesn’t mean we will not fight. you don’t even seem to know what BUYING TIME and RIGHT TIME means!

        i have no daughter…but got plenty of wives. don’t aspire to screw any of them…because you won’t pass their taste. they only entertain intelligent men like me…they can’t stand idiots. LOL

    Philippines, Vietnam, Japan, India and Tibet should unite against this hegemonic china.

    “The rules, which come into effect on January 1, will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters and order them to change course or stop sailing,” the official China Daily reported ~ Why would China have to wait until January 1? They are testing the waters, so to speak, so the Philippines must prepare for a small scale war within the sea of scarborough shoals. Use remote controlled toy planes capable of delivering anthrax to the Chinese vessels in the cover of darkness. Armed our fast Moro kumpits to play cat and mouse with the ships of these morons. And more innovative ways of fighting this greedy giant of a nation.

    • Tomabas

      Yupe. This issue needs to be solved. Else the west will continue to use this to manipulate and stop any cooporations between China and some ASENA states; like Philippine. One of the major reason for the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis was the attack of asian currencies from western countries.  If China and ASEAN countries didn’t stand together back then, ASEAN might have been broken up and many countries would have been destroyed economically.

      If this issue continues to prolong and hurts Asian relationships, then the West will take advantage of this; as they are doing right now.  And when the next asian financial crisis hit, and with the current bad relationships, it will hurt everyone a lot.

  • Matt Lee

    Actual China Daily article said “Police in Hainan will be authorized to board and search ships that illegally enter the province’s waters in 2013, the latest Chinese effort to protect the South China Sea.”

    Quite different from “disputed waters in SCS”. Gulf of Tonkin and waters around Hainan are a part of SCS. But I guess that robs the article of the drama.

        no. our boundary is not in our mind…our boundary is provided for by UNCLOS 200nm EEZ. it is rule based…in accordance with international law.

        it is china that got problems with borders. annexed tibet…fought border war with india in early 60’s…fought border war with russia in late 60’s over the ussuri… fought vietnam twice in the 80’s…territorial island/sea dispute with japan, philippines, malaysia, brunei and vietnam. chinese fishing boats, got fired at by russia and palau for poaching…several chinese dead. strayed into south korean waters and stabbed a south korean coast guard for boarding their ship.

        soon eastern half of russia is in danger of being gobbled up…because the chinese are populating that region fast. china seems not to know where their border is.

    first, situation developed into today’s, the govt has inexcusable responsibility.

    the best approach, is to sit down. having big As s is more usable than having big balls.

  • gay

    anyone who is serious about resolving the dispute must answer this question, what is the basis for PH’s claim ?

    to my best knowledge, and it is also PH’s official position, that effective jurisdiction is the basis.

    in other words, invasion, or using force to take control.

    this is wrong, this is against UN rules.

    • Mita

      And what is the basis of China’s claim?

      • gay

        Nine dashed line is a claim, or declaration, peaceful, open, without any objections for quite a long period time.

      • Mita

        any 5-year old can draw 9 dashes on a map.  Any more proof?

      • gay

         there are more than 100 volumes to prove that China discovered all the Islands within the nine line, named them, managed them, used them… go on and go on.

      • Mita

        Managed them, used them before, huh. If that is so, why is it that today, China only occupies artificially-made structures on rocks that aren’t even visible during high tide? Ordinary Filipinos live, work and die on 6 large islands in the area.  So how can China claim it manages and uses uninhabitable rocks that are underwater for half of the day?

      • zdrx

        1) so where are those voluminous documents?
        2) chiang’s 11 dash line was a private publication in 1946. hi-jacked by zhou in 1949 and made into 9 dash line…
        3) was submitted into the UN in 1997 for a formal claim of the entire SCS, years after UNCLOS….i repeat, YEARS AFTER UNCLOS!!!!!!!!
        4) that mickey mouse map was ridiculed,  protested and contested by neighboring countries.
        5) when the filipinos came over to lay claim of that area as provided by UNCLOS 200nm EEZ…the territory was an abandoned area. no chinese of any shade managed or exercised jurisdiction over the territory.

      • kismaytami

        May two year old can do that too. I pity these greedy chi nks that they only learned to draw dashes these days.

    From the Nine Commentaries of the Communist Party, a censored document in China:

    The Communist Party suppresses human beings’ virtuous nature, and promotes, encourages, and uses the evil side of humanity to strengthen its rule. In one campaign after another, people with conscience are forced into silence for fear of violence.

    This is exciting.  The probability that a West Filipin Sea war to happen, which my motherland considers as “small war”, is almost at 100%.  “Testing if the water is hot” is now.  My motherland will sieze this opportunity to test if the Mutual Defense Treaty between the United States of America and the Filipin is really “mutual”.  My motherland’s naval and coast guards will board Filipin ships.  Any Filipin ship that refuses to be checked will be destroyed by our missile.  Philippinos must think that your motherland, the mighty and most powerful nation in this world – the United States of America – will not help you and cannot invoke the treaty as retaliatory measure from your past Prime Minister Gloria Arroyo’s pull out in the “coalition of the willing” in Iraq in July of 2004 ostensibly because a truck driver and a father of 8 children Angelo De La Cruz  was kidnapped and threatened to be decapitated.  Arroyo’s corrupt administration succumbed to the wishes of the Catholic church, a chaotic media, and a gullible nation to cover up Arroyo’s corruption and plunder then.  This is the reason why the Bush administration considered the Filipin a not reliable ally in the war on terror.  Imagine President Bush even visited the Filipin then and was honored in Malacanan Palace and put the Filipin as a very reliable ally only to be reversed by the treacherous and wily Arroyo. Now the Filipin will be humiliated in this small war.  

    My motherland will win and will continue the assimilation of tributary state like the Filipin into the “middle kingdom”.  The Filipin will be part of the “fiefdom” ruled by triads, drug lords, gambling lords, prostitution lords, cronies that are subservient to our “princelings”, and most of all by Philippino-chinese like AFPako, Matt Lee, Topolcats, PurpleDaisy13, Vincent Van Go, George Tongshiwa (Washington?), and Edgar Allan Pe.  We will go first to the “weakest link” – the Filipin – then Vietnam will be next, then Japan, then our “showdown” with the United States of America and test their “air-sea battle concept”.  We want to know if the Arleigh Burke destroyers and Ticonderoga class frigates are really equipped with the much touted “railguns” and “laser beams”.

    Let us first analyse things “Why they are doing this?”This is something delicate and it needs a careful evaluation about the message China wants to send to SEAN(Southeast Asian Nation).
    My best option is to bring this international!…As a rule,it is not allowed to expel “Commercial Ships carrying normal citizen. Or a Merchant Ship being harrashed by anyone who wants to destruct it´s route. As a rule,SEA is not an EXPANSION OF GOVERNMENT RULING UPON WHICH THEY CAN PUT EVERYONE UNDER COMMUNIST RULE INCLUDING SEAS! It is an international sea that nobody or no one is allowed to conduct suprimacy rule.
    For me,China´s move was a clear sign of extending COMMUNISM in South China Sea which is totally absurd and internationally unacceptable….If i still remember when USSR shutdown a commercial plane of South Korea (Korean Airlines),that was mid-80´s i think.The world condemn that action being done by Russians!

    The problem for DFA is to mix Islands with EEZ.

    There is no basis for Islands dispute. EEZ is not the basis, everyone knows that, they just don’t say, pretentious.

    There is dispute about water, EEZ overlap with nine-dashed line. UNCLOS never discounts historic claim, quite opposite, supports it.

    Nine-dashed line claimed territory water, even just a trditional fishing ground claimed, EEZ still has no basis to discounts it.

    As long as the dispute continues, there is no EEZ.

    EEZ of PH has not defined yet, be wise and open minded.

      • Marx Louis Wang

         Hoy bakla (gay in inglis), ano ang ibig sabihin ng EEZ?

      • zdrx

        defined in parts of article 55 to 75 part 5 of UNCLOS provides us sovereign rights, duties, responsibilities and jurisdiction in an area within 200nm from our baseline. we have EXCLUSIVE economic sovereign right to explore and harvest anything of economic value within our EEZ.

        we also have specific responsibilities and duties which china clearly prevents us from implementing. it is also a sovereign right that china usurped from us…but with specific duties that china neglected…by destructive fishing and destroying marine biodiversity and environment—a clear violation of art. 56. 1(m).

        claiming a territory or not, is of no bearing…for we are claiming our sovereign rights, responsibilities and duties in that EEZ. why don’t you read part 5 of UNCLOS? being 800nm away…there, you’ll see clearly that china is in violation of article 57. china has no right to be there.

        your fishermen were fired upon by the russians and palaus…and the japs simply ignored your rumblings. because of perceived kinship…only the filipinos had been very patient in using negotiations and diplomacy in resolving the issue…peacefully. if your country perceived it as our weakness…then let them enjoy the spectacle…at their own risk. at the end of the day…no one can say we didn’t exhaust all possible means. no one can say that peace was not given a chance.

    As I have commented before, PHL has the knowhow and capability to fabricate small but fast patrol boats. We don’t need big but slow ships that will be easy targets for Chinese submarines. Small and highly maneuverable patrol boats cruising above 35 knots will be difficult targets. Arm these with anti-ship/submarine torpedoes and anti-ship missiles like Exocet if the navy can afford, then we will have a fighting chance against this Chinese bully intruding in our territorial waters.

    PHL’s very weak defense posture is definitely what makes China very bold to issue those statements and threats.

    • GaggerAlert

      Hmmm… like your idea. Like a pack of wolves singling out on a bigger prey. :)

      We may have some capability but I hope we acquire more advanced capability from other countries. 

      You can’t outrun aircraft. It’s OK to have slow but has close-in-weapons-system, sensors and processing systems, etc. Our new coast guard cutters should be equipped with these.

      • RyanE

        CIWS is quite good to counter incoming missiles but not torpedoes. The coast guard cutters could be converted into a real warship complete with CIWS, anti-ship/submarine armaments and surface to air missiles before it could become a threat to Chinese navy, but the cost might be beyond our defense budget.

        Btw, the crew of the small but fast patrol boats could be armed with the cheaper shoulder-fired anti aircraft missiles which are already proven to be very effective against both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

    • Concerned Dad

       Mobile missile batteries scattered around the archipelago should be considered. Aided by spaced-based surveillance and targeting systems, these missiles should provide a deterrent to intruders. Also a drone industry should be developed in the Philippines. These drones are not just aircrafts but also marine vessels including submarines. The country has the resources to commence this program but lacks the necessary political leadership.Truly modernize the military and modernize your political leadership – don’t use the money to modernize your blings.

  • common_juan

    i believe this is our opportunity to exercise a unique diplomatic solution to this issue. Pres. Aquino so far, and sorry to say for its voters & followers, are not doing a good job at the moment. Yes they resorted to diplomatic solutions but the method is so traditional. I mean we are dealing with the most complicated country in the world at the moment and that is China. The problem with China is that they are being controlled by the People’s Leberation Army at the moment. The people of China have no choice but to please their officials and their ambitions.
    For me, the Aquino government should NOT cling to US to solve this issue but to cling to itself. If I recall before during the GMA government, they’d made several deals with them that directly connects to this disputed islands in SCS. Im not saying that this deal is right, legal or moral but the way they made this deal is the key on how we could use this on our advantage against the Chinese.
    You might not understand what Im saying but if you think you got my concept you may welcome to challenge me or agree with me. Thank you.

    • superpilipinas

      What do you think PNoy has been doing? Diplomatic channel has not been working. He is even back-channeling already.

      We should be more aggressive. Let’s have an economic and military treaty with India, Vietnam, and Japan. Us four are against the bullying of China. We should sign an all-4-one and one-4-all against China. India has a good number of frigates, nuclear subs, and an aircraft carrier. Vietnam has 42 SU-30 fighters and a significant navy power. Japan has even more than Vietnam. Combined together, the bully is still much bigger but could not be bully anymore.

      Also, if you have worked in China like I did, you would know that the Chinese are very very patriotic. That is why there were so many protests against Japan on the Senkaku island dispute. Japanese oriented shops were threatened. Even Japanese cars at one time were vandalized.

      • common_juan

        yes i agree that his so called diplomatic channels are not working
        because he’s using the traditional approach. instead we use their
        aggressiveness into our advantage.
        yes chinese are patriotic because
        their People’s Liberation Army is somewhat influenced them. a typical
        communist socialist country charateristic. asserting to force for me is
        futile coz it is not equally matched in terms of military power and

    Those Chinese ships in our territory should be given ultimatum to leave the area  and if they don’t comply must be forced to leave and fire upon by our arm forces. We  must not worry about the consequences coz we know and world knows it is China’s fault. They are trying to test our responses on the bullying and if we don’t react appropriately they will carry it on and get away with it annexing the disputed island. Let us protect what is ours! The AFP must be hard on these
    Chinese intruders in show to them that we can’t be intimidated by their might.

    communist china’s strategy is to provoke the philippines to fire the first

    filipino inhabitants in panatag island using its military might just like 
    what it did in driving away the vietnamese in paracel island. These greedy 
    communist rulers know the negative implications from the international 
    communities should they just invade the panatag using their crazy 
    historical claim of the spratly islands.

    patriotic filipinos worldwide should use the power of the freedom of

      Its not Chinese borders they’re controlling.
      Its disputed territory – DISPUTED.
      No one has been internationally recognized to own the shoal, and no one has exercised sole sovereignty over it over the past hundreds or thousands of years.

      What border are you talking about.

      • inside

         Chinese border.

         China claimed all the Islands in forms of eleven dotted line in 1947.

         There was no objections from PH, and any other nations.

         If no objections from international communities for a period of sufficient long time, the claim is lawfully titled.

        That is how PH gets her territory.

         Does China objected 114 years ago ?


         If not then, not now.

      • Boy Dalius

        They claim it alright. 
        The kuomintang regime proposed it – but it was never approved. 
        If it was approved and was internationally recognized then – it woudln’t have been put to dispute now. Does that makes sense?

      • Boy Dalius

        Neither party’s claim has been officially approved or internationally recognized to own the shoal. 
        It doesn’t only apply to the Philippines, but China as well.
        So China doesn’t have the right to officially claim and expel claimants from the DISPUTED area.

        Don’t be stupid Boy Dalius.  Even China has territorial waters of EEZ that extend as far as 200 nautical miles.  China is a member of UNCLOS since 1994. And they have every right to inspect foreign ships for illegal entry.

        Please read the article carefully so you can comprehend:

        “will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board
        and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters”

        Don’t be a fool PurpleDaisy.

        will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board
        and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters
        and order them to change course or stop sailing,” the official China
        Daily reported.

      • Boy Dalius

        No, you’re the idiot here PurpleDaisy (as usual) LOL.

        Whether the author misinterpreted something or not is not my concern. I posted here and based my arguments on the contents of the article.

        The subject is clear – DISPUTED WATERS.

        Even Reuters reported this – 

        (Reuters) – Police in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan will board and search ships which illegally enter what China CONSIDERS its territory in the disputed South China Sea, state media said on Thursday, a move likely to add to tensions.

        Forcibly giving justice to some stupid argument. Pathetic.

        And yet again by going to Reuters to rely on their author’s interpretations still does not beat the original sources derived directly from China Daily.

        I’m sorry Boy Dalius, but you’re still fumbling….China Daily clearly says it is an inspection within Chinese waters….not Philippine’s EEZ, Japan’s EEZ, etc…

    China’s strategy is to steal and then claim that they are the ones that are cooperating, or make attempts to minimize the attention drawn to their cheating.

One week they will steal a little more then the next week they will try to convince everyone that they are not cheating. This pattern will go on for several years.

      You have Philippine leaders who have already expressed proposals to terminate the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) that shall end military exercises between the US and the Philippines.

      Meanwhile, the US does not have any interest in taking sides with the Philippines or China so it is implied that the US shall not agree with your ridiculous idea to aggravate or escalate the situation.

      If you want to fight China for the OIL underneath Scarborough Shoal, you are on your own.  Fight your own wars LabkoPinas.  Otherwise, back-off and stop acting “mayabang” if you don’t think you will win a war against the 3rd most powerful military in the world.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “Anyway, You obviously have not heard of the new US Foreign Policy termed “Asian Pivot”

        On the contrary, we’ve all heard of Obama’s Asian “Pivot” already angtangamo.

        However, our US insists that this move is not meant to spark military conflict but more about strengthening economic relationships with Asian nations:

        the Obama administration has started focusing more on the economic
        aspect and less on the military part, even dropping the word “pivot,” says Brahma Chellaney in Lebanon’s The Daily Star.
        But “whatever one calls it, the new policy approach is all about
        China.” It is not, however, “an aggressive effort to contain China,” as
        some people — including many in China’s government — have
        mischaracterized it
        — The Week

        So you’re interpretation about Obama’s Asian “pivot” is wrong angtangamo.

        You obviously have not heard that China has funded our US economy with well over $1,000,000,000,000 (TRILLION) DOLLARS. 

        In other words, it is in America’s best interest not to mess with China, our financial lender.  Do you understand the power of financial influence or “malaking utang ng loob” angtangamo?

        The dispute in Huangyan Island (Scarborough) has NOTHING to do with “freedom” for the Filipinos or “slavery” under the Chinese.  It all has to do with abundant-rich OIL underneath Huangyan Island (Scarborough).

        So YOU think you’re fighting for your country?  Wrong.

        Huangyan Island (Scarborough) is NOT recognized as part of YOUR country (Philippines) nor is it recognized as part of China’s country.  Is that understood LabkoPinas? 

        Can you understand that the United Nations (UN) and the WORLD International Community DOES NOT RECOGNIZE that Huangyan Island (Scarborough) is a sovereignty of the Philippines?

        This means YOU are not fighting for your COUNTRY.  YOU are FIGHTING for OIL against another country who ALSO wants the OIL.

    battles at sea would really be the next confrontation. Talk to
    Obama in private would be at the top of PNoy’s agenda.

  • zeroko

    All the blames stops at the door of our Filipino-Chinese President PNoy. He is instrumental why we are on a mess. I have to say this to all of you to discern what I am driving at.

    1. PNoy ordered our US donated Navy Cruiser to withdraw from Scarborough shoal “pretending that the Navy ship is at risk because of inclement weather. 

    Fact: That ship can withstand gale force weather where other ship would have sunk. This ship does not float up when the big waves are hit. He just slice through the waves.

    2. PNoy said, China has declared a fishing ban, therefore in sympathy, we too should declare a fishing ban.

    Fact: China NEVER declared a fishing ban, Instead the original 6 Chinese fishing boat has increased to 96 Chinese fishing boat contrary to what PNoy declared. Our Chinese President is lying to his teeth.

    3. PNoy never attempt to build more structure to      assert our claim. All he does is blah blah blah.

    Fact: Vietnam, Malaysia, and China has been adding structures on their claim adding several more. 

    4. PNoy violated the Diplomatic decorum when he sent Trillianes for ‘backdoor’ diplomacy.

    5. Now, China has raised the ante. Everything is at stake right now. Nobody is crazy enough to board a battleship of another nation unless he is sure to sink it. This is an audacious move by China. This is the right time to show our resolve. Let us send the oldest Navy ship to that area, probably as a decoy, load it with so much explosive, and let the Chinese ship park besides ours, and abandon the ship and explode it. It does not matter who explode the ship because the International view would be pointing their finger to China because had he not boarded the ship, there would never have been any explosion. 

    6. There is no room for diplomacy anymore the way the Chinese are behaving, this will be a shooting war. I have said before that we should have prepared ourselves for this eventuality.

    Fact: PNoy perhaps is more interested playing a virtual war game in his computer than facing reality. He is ill advise. “Kamote!” I suggested before that we built the flying boat similar to Iran’s Bavar 2 and equip it with ship “Killer” missile and another air to air missile.Now, what do we have to counter the threat? Better to sink our old ships so that the Chinese can not remove it.

    Fact: This gadget is a lot cheaper than anything our “Coconut head” Chinese government and fat belly Generals have. We should have started this long time ago. Two year is all that it takes. We have airplane making machine which is rotting in Sangley Point. It was bought from Germany. Thanks to our fat belly Generals they never built one prototype airplane fuselage. He he he! Billions and billions of pesos was wasted because our military’s ineptness. As I have said, these Generals are just good in saying “Yes, Sir! and No, Sir!” and fatten their pocket with cash.

    7. We should accuse our Chinese President with crime of Treason. He disobeyed his oath of Office which is “To protect our Constitution and our territorial sovereignty.” Zero!

      Now China shall have exclusive opportunity to exercise effective occupation and jurisdiction on Scarborough Shoal which is a critical element in being awarded sovereignty over a disputed island.  As identical to the Palmas Island dispute between the Netherlands and the United States – the Netherlands won the case against the US because they exercised effective occupation and jurisdiction over the island despite the US claiming to have bought the Palmas island.

      Once China achieves sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal, it shall have it’s own 200 nautical mile EEZ to keep Philippines violators at a distance.

        re: “If you are going to use that then the area is actually within our EEZ!!!”

        Although Huangyan Island (Scarborough) is not a sovereignty of the Philippines OR China, it is entitled to it’s own 12-mile territorial water surrounding the regions of area on Huangyan Island (Scarborough) that remain above water during high tide.

        As such, Philippines EEZ CANNOT be used to encroach upon territorial water that does not belong to the Philippines.

        And when Huangyan Island officially becomes a sovereignty of China, it shall be expanded from 12-mile territorial waters to a 200 nautical mile EEZ around Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) or up against the edge of where Philippine’s and China’s EEZ meet.

      Why do you use the word “traitor” when in fact China has never been an ally and has never been loyal to the Philippines?  Now you call China a traitor because you believe China has betrayed their loyalty to the Philippines? 

      Please sParker23….go back to school and learn the correct meaning of a “traitor”.  You don’t know what you’re saying.

      re: “If this leads to war kawawa ang China. Mawawalan sya ng territoryo”


      Nobody wants to take sides with the Philippines because Scarborough Shoal IS NOT a sovereignty of the Philippines.

      Philippines, China, Vietnam, etc…all just want to acquire the OIL underneath these disputed islands and yet Philippines, China, Vietnam, etc are NOT recognized as having sovereignty over these disputed islands by the United Nations (UN) and the World International Community.

      Thus, you are on your own when you go to war with China angtangamo.  A 3rd world country versus the 3rd most powerful military in the world….and you shall lose instantly militarily and economically angtangamo.

      Your best option is to BACK OFF because you’re weak and feeble.

      • angtangamo

        Wow a chinese lapdog. The Phils cannot match China in military terms and I am not disputing that. So if The Phils does not have sovereignty of the disputed waters then why is China refusing to settle the matter thru the UN or the ICJ? Oh and another thing, if war does erupt rest assured your communist army will be fighting a war on many fronts. Other countries (like India) will take advantage of their own territorial issues with the Chinese and the result for you will be just embarrassing and that will hopefully reduce your communist army into retreating dogs.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “So if The Phils does not have sovereignty of the disputed waters then
        why is China refusing to settle the matter thru the UN or the ICJ?”

        It is not called the UN or the ICJ, it is called ITLOS, which stands for International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.

        China has every right to refuse to settle through ITLOS if they don’t believe that it is the proper forum.  Because it is not illegal to deny ITLOS, and whatever reason China may have had is irrelevant.

        But if you’re desperate for an answer…perhaps you can ponder upon how Laws of the Sea is not the same as Laws of the Land or Island.  

        And since Huangyan Island (Scarborough) is technically an island as defined by UNCLOS, Article 121…..ITLOS truly is not a proper forum because they don’t handle Island disputes…..only territorial Sea disputes.

        re: “it is not a matter of who is weak, but of who has sovereignty over the property ”

        You have everything backwards Michael A.

        We already know that Philippines and China both DO NOT have sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal.  The United Nations (UN) has never awarded the Philippines or China with sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal.

        So now we are left with who is weak and who is strong.

        China currently, occupies Scarborough Shoal because they are strong….while Philippines left because they are weak.

        It’s only a matter of time before China constructs as many structures necessary to qualify as exercising effective occupation and jurisdiction over Scarborough Shoal.  In which time, the International Court can recognize China has having sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal.

        I’m sorry Michael but Philippines has lost.

        Michael, would you be dumb enough to lend someone 1 million pesos based on “usapan” or verbal agreement?

        Or would you be smart enough to lend someone 1 million pesos based on “history of credibility”, physical signed contract of agreement, and effective penalties and consequences for failing to uphold the agreement?

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “How did you establish that?”

        That is not something that you establish angtangamo.  It is a fact that the United Nations (UN) has never awarded the Philippines or China with sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal. 

        Do you have any proof for everyone here with a link that states the UN had awarded the Philippines sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal?   If not, then accept the facts in that the UN and the World International Community DOES NOT recognize Philippines (or China) as having sovereignty over Scarborough Shoal angtangamo.

        re: “And why refuse to take the matter into arbitration with the UN  if you are confident that you have the right to claim the area?”

        Angtangamo, that was not the United Nations (UN), that was ITLOS….which stands for International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.  It’s apparent that you don’t understand what you’re talking about.

        It does not matter whether or not China refuses to settle this dispute through ITLOS.  China has every “legal right” to deny arbitration through ITLOS as granted and permitted by ITLOS rules.

        Do you see any ITLOS Police going after China for refusing to take the matter to ITLOS? No

        Then drop it…because refusing ITLOS is NOT A CRIME.  While ITLOS is also no longer an option as this had already been pursued, exhausted, and is no longer useful to the Philippines.

        Your only option is to go to war with China alone or withdraw your interests in Huangyan Island.

        re: “Shouldn’t China wait until International Court/UN recognize legally this
        disputed island to whom be awarded among the claimant country.”

        The International Court will not do anything unless a case has been initiated through them.

        If the International Court conducts rules with regard to filing cases the same way as ITLOS (International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea), then it could be a “stalemate” once again.  Because Philippines may come around and refuse to accept a settlement through International Court the same way China refused to accept a settlement through ITLOS.

        Then no International body shall be useful in any event and that military might may be the only answer.

        But if the International Court does not require Philippines participation in order for China to submit their request for sovereignty over Huangyan Island (Scarborough), then that’s the end for Philippine’s quest to acquire the OIL underneath Huanguan Island (Scarborough).

        re: “”Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”Mahatma Gandhi”

        I would have to disagree with Gandhi.  Strength is the combined result of physical capacity and indomitable will.  Without physical capacity, your indomitable will alone carries no strength…and without indomitable will, your physical capacity is just as useless.

        P = V x I

        If you have an Electrical background, then you should recognize this formula for Power derived from the product of Voltage and Current.  You can also represent this logic in the same manner:

        Point#1 “Then no International body shall be useful in any event and that military might may be the only answer”-The most important provisions of the 1987 Philippine Constitution which pertain to the framing of Philippine foreign policy are as follows: 
        Article II, Section 2: “The Philippines renounces war as an instrument of national policy, adopts the generally accepted principles of international law as part of the law of the land and adheres to the policy of peace, equality, justice.”Article II, Section 7: “The State shall pursue an independent foreign policy. In its relations with other states the paramount consideration shall be national sovereignty, territorial integrity, national interest, and the right to self-determination.”-something like your 1st amendment is in it brilliantly composed…Signing of the Manila Declaration On Board the USS Fitzgerald in Manila Bay, Manila, Philippinesin glory of God a free nation has the right to defend itself against all enemies foreign or domestic….sounds like your usaf oath is in it a nationalism/patriotic pride drive an individual to serve his motherland with or without external intervention… » Speech at West Point, 12 May 1962’― Douglas MacArthur…..“Give me ten thousand Filipino soforldiers and I will conquer the world.”+++”‘Duty,’ ‘Honor,’ ‘Country’ – those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you want to be, what you can be, what you will be.

        re: “The Philippines renounces war as an instrument of national policy, adopts the generally accepted principles of international law as part of the law of the land and adheres to the policy of peace, equality, justice.”

        That’s a very compelling section you’ve pointed out from the Constitution daniel.

        This means, Philippine lawmakers cannot accept the proposal to terminate the VFA (Visiting Forces Agreement) and the MDT (Mutual Defense Treaty) if they are not entitled to engage in war as declared by the Constitution.  They must rely on foreign military or our US military as an instrument to carry out their military needs.

        The Philippines has put themselves between a rock and hard place which shall only result in the Philippines eventually withdrawing their interests in fighting for the OIL at an island they do not have sovereignty over.

        re: “The important factor here is the temperature.”

        Well not exactly that important…as the affects of temperature in any typical climate has a very minute impact on the product of power and electricity.  e.g. You could expect the performance of a battery to power a light bulb with very little difference in hot or cold weather.

        re: “If calculations based on Ohms law are to produce accurate results this must remain constant.”

        The (near) accuracy is embedded in the formula while ther results are not expected to remain constant if the source values fluctuate in any way or form.

      China knows that Scarborough Shoal is not a sovereignty of the Philippines or a sovereignty of China.

      However, China does recognize that exercising effective occupation and jurisdiction over Scarborough Shoal can grant them sovereignty by the International Court.

      Philippines lost their chance by leaving Scarborough Shoal.  Now, it is just a matter of time before China begins to construct many structures on Scarborough Shoal and eventually winning the reward for abundant OIL underneath the island.

        Maaari mo bang ipaliwanag ang ibig sabihin ng  EEZ ?..(amoy melon)

      • PurpleDaisy13

        The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is nothing more than an implication among nations who joined and have become members of UNCLOS, in that they should be entitled to 200 nautical miles of territorial sea for the purpose of exploiting marine resources.

        The EEZ was not invented by UNCLOS to allow members sovereignty over Land or Islands.  It is only meant for sovereignty over waters or the Sea.  Hence, the name….United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. (UNCLOS)

        Because Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) exhibits several regions that remain above sea level during high tide, it is technically an Island as defined by UNCLOS, Article 121, paragraph 1:

        1. An island is a naturally formed area of land, surrounded by water, which is above water at high tide.

        Thus, Philippines shall NEVER be awarded sovereignty over Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) by way of EEZ because it is an Island.  And by being an island, it is entitled to it’s own 12-mile territorial sea in which Philippine’s EEZ cannot be used to encroach upon.

        re: “ayaw nyong pumayag na dalhin itong usapin sa UNCLOS”

        Virgilio Contado, you are confused.  China didn’t refuse to settle through UNCLOS, they refused to settle through ITLOS.  Do you know the difference?

        China has every right to refuse settling through ITLOS for whatever reason because ITLOS gives them that right as it is also part of the rules.

        re: “mismo ang nagdala SA UNCLOS DAHIL DI NYO KAYA.”

        You don’t settle disputes through UNCLOS, but you can inquire through UNCLOS regarding the validity of your basis.  And that is what China did….inquired with UNCLOS to confirm their basis over the disputed island with Japan.

        That has nothing to do with being “duwag”.  It has a lot to do with using your options wisely.

        The only “duwag” here is your Philippines for leaving Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal).  Now China has complete control over Huangyan Island (Scarborough)…if you really want to fight for the OIL, what are you gonna do about it “duwag”?

    Communist China is dauntless in harassing poor Southeast Asian nations because she knows the so-called superpower America can be controlled. America owes China more than a trillion dollars not to mention the investments the latter poured in America. Communist China can just pull out her investments from borrower America and demand the payment of the loan and America’s economy will go forward downward. US is broke.

    Now, without the unity of Southeast Asian countries nothing will happen. Unity that would spawn economic activities fair and appropriate to compete China in the international market. There is a chance for this if the leaders are willing. 

    Unfortunately, most Southeast Asian nations especially the Philippines (a direct target of China’s attack) are also deep in useless foreign debts (like the CCT funding) that what they can offer as resistance to China are just palliatives. Festering corrupt political practices are ruling the administration.

Pnoy play hardball against China but doesn’t have balls to support it.He embarrassed China infront of the ASEAN conference which was unnecessary,and now we got this as a result ! Pnoy seems clueless on how to deal this problem,that he commited mistakes after mistakes and resulted to infighting among his negotiators and within  the senate itself. He should better keep his mouth shut now, because it’s worsening the situation.Hand over the job to the more qualified people to resolve this, otherwise we’ll just kiss Panatag goodbye !… Pnoy must walk the walk not talk the talk.

    Kung itutuloy ng China ang ganitong patakaran ariin at kontrolin ang buong South China Sea / West Philippine Sea, lalabas ang tunay na katangian nito;  ang mang-BULLY, mang-api ng maliliit at mahihinang bansang tulad Pilipinas, Vietnam at iba pang mga bansa sa South-east Asia.

    Bagamat mayroon pa rin ilan na naniniwalang hindi ito gagawin at wala sa kasaysayan ng China ang pangmamalabis at  pang-aapi sa kalapit na mga bansa.
    Kung itutuloy ng mga Intsik ang maitim na hangarin, walang dudang maa-ISOLATE sa Asia ang China at malamang eto na ang katapusan ng limang dekadang paghahari ng mga Komunista sa bansang China (down fall of communist-elite capitalist sa China).

    The new leadership of china is now resorting to “gunboat diplomacy” as used by the european powers in the 16th century onward to claim/expand their colonial empires.

    Gunboat diplomacy as defined by wikipedia “refers to the pursuit of foreign policy objectives with the aid of conspicuous display of military power – implying or constituting a direct threat of warfare, should terms not be agreeable to the superior force.”

    Vietnam and PH are the direct victims of this expansionism but I wonder if the chinese bullies would include the senkaku islands and risks shooting war with Japan.  If Japan is spared, then it’s obvious the chinese bullies are only after the weak countries, as bullies usually do…

      Thats how it feels if someone is powerful and can make things happen . Thats how China was ganged up by dirty WHite Powers in the past, subjected to unfair negotiations with a gun to their heads. SO dont try to  play your melodramic drama how China is using Gunboat Diplomacy on smaller nations . CHina was a victim  and is just turning back the favor.  Japos ,  Vietgooks and Kayumangmangs , sorry na lang.

        One advise , Dont act like the dirty White Conquistadores of the past , China is not new to these .  China is trying to be fair but if you play the White Man’s playbook, then China has no other course but play the White Man’s gamebook.

    Vietnam, the Philippines and other Asean countries that ring the Manchu claimed seas and atolls should ring the shoreline with mobile Indian/Russian Brahmos antiship missiles as well as have them in our planes and naval boats. The Tomahawk will also be good with a 450 km range. (The Brahmos has a 300km range but is supersonic.) We should have several hundred antiship as well as surface to air missiles. We also need antitank missiles just in case. Japan can also rebuild their carriers/naval force. All affected countries can also form a naval/military alliance all the way from India to Japan to Australia.

    China will use force, no doubt about it.

    say that force may sometimes be necessary is not a call to cynicism —
    it is a recognition of history; the imperfections of man and the limits

      A ‘recognition’ of history we have learned nothing from at all by the way. Somebody once said [forget who] that a cynic was “somebody who knew the price of everything and the value of nothing” I think he was right…
      On this, I am still at a loss to understand why Obama even got the prize….On China [or anybody] using force to get their way it is a fact, I have to admit, Bush and Blair did it and it is true history is littered with violence, with varied results.. some noteworthy, some appalling examples of mans inhumanity to man….

      re: ” but we also have to assert our sovereignty.  Our military and all Filipinos should defend the Philippine territory.”

      China is not after Philippine territory or sovereignty.

      Scarborough Shoal is not a territory or a sovereignty of the Philippines (or China).

      If you want to acquire the abundant OIL in Scarborough Shoal, you need to go to war…one on one with China because they want it too.

      If you know you can’t win a war against China and choose to withdraw your interests over Scarborough Shoal, then there’s nothing to worry about.  China will be happy to have all the OIL for themselves without having to fire any missiles.

    from the onset, Chinese already knew, Pilipinos are afraid to die… unlike the Vietnamese..

    You can’t go to war because you are eventually a loser.. US won’t help and defend you, because the territory is still disputed..

    Do not fear China, or urong-sulong with our decisions, if in doubt follow the policy of not confirming nor denying in order that we will not be so confused….but as long as we believe in God, in the Democracy, and our capacity to gather alliances, and now with our developing strength….no need to fear…if our country need us..we have to rise above our fear and defend this country for all Freedom loving Filipinos….after all we stood we showed we do not easily run away from any conflict before such as in so many months of defending corrigidor and Bataan to fight for freedom and what is right…in turn delaying invaders from taking Australia…we can always emulate our forefathers to be strong.

Anong panlaban natin yung dalawang WWII era na barko na hiningi sa US, isang C-130 ng PAF, mga lumang Huey at OV-10 na pag lumipad ay siguradong nasa hukay na ang isang paa ng mga piloto kaya tinawag na widow makers mga yan. San mo naman kukunin mga ROTC eh halos karamihan na ng mga lalaking kabataan ngayon ay ayaw nang sumali sa ROTC at karamihan na ay bakla. At saan naman yan alliance na sinasabi mo, sa ASEAN, di nga sila magkasundo kung pano sawatahin ang pagsakop ng China, sa US eh ayaw na nga ng karamihan sa mga kabataang Pinoy ngayon na makialam ang Amerika. Sinalungat pa ng DFA ang kagustuhan ng America na wag maging state ang mga teroristang PLO at Hamas laban sa Israel.

      “A state owned vessel is immune from being boarded by any country according to admiralty law such as the coast guards and or Naval ships.”

      True, in a 12 NM limit, plus 2 NM we, for example can board any ship we like, these are sovereign waters, the 200 NM zone is an economic zone and all vessels have right to pass unhindered, they have right of free passage, if however ships are to be found stealing whatever in this zone the owner of that zone have right to seize. Problem is China’s zone seems to be endless…..

  • Concerned Citizen

     China’s intention of their crazy check point is to impose economic sanctions and trade embargo on countries like us and Japan.   They can easily cut the supply of oil and steel to weaken military capabilities.   They  can also make exporting and importing difficult to destroy countries’ economies and to make these countries more submissive to all that China wants. Through these planned checkpoints, China can also control the prices of essential commodities.    This is their way of maintaining their world status because they lack innovation that can sustain their dominance.

    Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Tse-tung belong to the same breed of communists who consolidated their power through the barrels of guns that resulted to millions of dead intelligencia, landlords, oppositions, and the like.

    Of the three, only china remains a communist state and their leaders elected by a few hardcore communist politburo members.  History is replete with revolutions when the populace are not allowed to participate in the governance and dissents are discouraged and met harshly.

    In not so distant future, North Korea and china will become democratic states since the youth and the learned would inevitably rise in revolt just like the Arab Spring where social media played a major role in exchanging ideas, gathering crowd and toppling the regimes in Tunisia and Egypt.

    This move by China is a direct threat to Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea.  Japan knows very well the importance of the freedom of navigation because one f the major reasons it lost WW2 was because it was unable to ship in the raw materials needed to continue production of its war equipments and supplies.

      • Psiitoon Charoenkrung

        Yes, China has all the right to patrol and inspect foreign ships that illegally enter their territorial waters and waters included in their EEZ.  But beyond their 200 miles EEZ it is illegal already.  China does not own the whole west Philippine sea or south china sea.  Its ancient claim is full of holes as well as funny.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “But beyond their 200 miles EEZ it is illegal already.”

        China’s territorial waters doesn’t suggest anything beyond their 200 nautical miles EEZ.

        Please show us exactly where China reports your false interpretation.

        And if you can’t find it…it’s because you have poor English comprehension. Please re-examine the quote from China Daily:

        will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters and order them to change course or stop sailing

        Do you know where Hainan is located psiitoon charoenkrung? That’s within China’s territorial waters and NOT beyond China’s 200 nautical mile EEZ.

        ” will allow police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board
        and seize control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters
        and order them to change course or stop sailing,”

        Do you know where Hainan is located ApoNiLolo?  Apparently not…it is an island southwest of Hong Kong and is NO WHERE close to your Philippine EEZ.

        Supersedes your boundaries my azz.  You have English comprehension problems.

        China is entitled and has the legal right to patrol their territorial waters for ships that “illegally enter”….just as Philippines has the same right to patrol their territorial waters for ships that “illegally enter”.

        the right to board and expel foreign ships entering disputed waters in
        the South China Sea, including parts known as West Philippine Sea, state
        media reported on Thursday.

        This is part of the article describing the quote and source of this topic:

        police in the southern Chinese province of Hainan to board and seize
        control of foreign ships that “illegally enter” Chinese waters and order
        them to change course or stop sailing,” the official China Daily

        Do you see the difference between how the author manipulated the source of information from China Daily while injecting a term that is not even recognized by the United Nations (UN) and the World International Community?…The “West Philippine Sea”?

        What’s in it for me?  How about something more important….what’s in it for YOU: which is LIFE and PEACE.

        Imagine the bigger picture taking place here ApoNiLolo…..Both YOU and China DO NOT OWN Huangyan Island (Scarborough/Panatag) and is not recognized as a sovereignty of the Philippines (or China) by the United Nations (UN) and the World International Community.

        And yet…all you BOTH want is to acquire and take command of the OIL because you are BOTH GREEDY.

        You LIE as if it is your sovereignty so that you may deceive, influence, persuade, and trick others to stand and fight on your behalf to help you take the OIL.  And when those who rise against your twisted propaganda….you automatically label them as “Chinese”?  How much more ignorant do you want to be perceived ApoNiLolo?

        Do you have any brains to understand that there are people who will not buy your propaganda as easily as you may think because millions of people are far more educated than you are because you don’t quite understand and comprehend the whole situation?

        Instead of being GREEDY over the OIL with China, have you ever stepped back from your nationalistic mental disease to realize that BACKING OFF and withdrawing your interests from acquiring the OIL could be MORE PRODUCTIVE, MUCH WISER, and BENEFICIAL for the sake of the Philippine economy, military, foreign relations, and the people of the Philippines?

        You already have abundant oil-rich deposits at your disposal in the East Philippine Sea as awarded by the UN through your recent sovereignty over Benham Rise.  And you’re still dumb and greedy to fight over the oil underneath Huangyan Island that does not belong to you because it is not enough to fulfill YOUR GREED?

        If you’re that GREEDY, then you truly deserve to get blown out of the water when you challenge the 3rd most powerful military on this planet, China.  Because you don’t know your place ApoNiLolo…you’re “mayabang” and need to be taught a valuable lesson in nature:

        re: “And as for our GREED, who’ll take our place if we back down? Your Uncle Sam?”

        Again ApoNiLolo, our US has already expressed that we SHALL NOT take SIDES with YOU and YOUR Philippines (or China).

        BUT China includes all the disputed areas? Is that, vague?

        The UNCLOS was created to settle international sea disputes, but China
        insist on a bi-lateral negotiation to settle the issue.  A bi-lateral negotiations in a multi-lateral
        problem will not work, UNCLOS is the right venue to settle the disputes.

        Status Quo was recommended to the disputed areas, but China is more assertive in bullying their
        neighboring countries.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “International law allows each country to have an exclusion zone of
        200 miles from their land.”

        No…NOT every country.  Only UNCLOS member states are suggested to have 200 nautical mile EEZ.

        re: “BUT China includes all the disputed areas? Is that, vague?”

        No…China Daily explains that China plans to inspect foreign ships for “illegal entry” within China’s territorial waters.  That’s not vague…China is an UNCLOS member since 1994 and is entitled to 200 nautical mile EEZ.

        re: ‘The UNCLOS was created to settle international sea disputes, but China insist on a bi-lateral negotiation to settle the issue.”

        Yes.  But Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal) is not a Sea dispute, it is an Island dispute.

        Also UNCLOS is not a forum to settle sea disputes…ITLOS (International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea) is the forum for settling sea disputes.  However, ITLOS does not and cannot force countries to settle through their courts.  Moreover, ITLOS does not handle Island disputes.

        re: “UNCLOS is the right venue to settle the disputes.”

        UNCLOS is not a venue for settling disputes…it is a Convention of membership and rules.  You’re confusing UNCLOS for ITLOS.

        re: “but China is more assertive in bullying their neighboring countries.”

        Both Philippines and China DO NOT have sovereignty over Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal).  Thus, this is not a case of “bullying”.

        You can only be “bullied” if you owned Huangyan Island (Scarborough Shoal).

        If you and another person discovered a $1,000 dollar bill on the floor that didn’t belong to either of you but both wanted, would you call the other person a “bully”?  No

      • PH2011

        China is not bullying?  But they
        prevented  Fipinos from fishing in the
        disputed Panatag Shoal/Lagoon. Expel ships in disputed areas. Scarborough
        Shoal/Panatag  composed of  reefs and rocks ,some of the rocks are
        submerged during high tide. It’s within the boundary of 200nautical mile EEZ of
        the Philippines.

        The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea
        (ITLOS) is an intergovernmental organization
        created by the mandate of the Third United Nations Conference
        on the Law of the Sea. It was established by the United Nations Convention
        on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

        Either is the right venue, but China refused to settle the conflict in
        a diplomatic way. Status Quo in disputed was rejected by China. This kind of
        action and mindset of China worsen the conflict.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        Again PH2011, the United Nations (UN) has never awarded the Philippines with sovereignty over Panatag (Huangyan Island/Scarborough).

        It is not yours.  Can you understand that? 

        So if you say China tried to prevent Filipinos from fishing in Panatag, then YOU FIGHT CHINA because it IS ALSO NOT a sovereignty of China.  Do you understand that?

        But if you’re “duwag” and can’t fight back…then it is natural for you to runaway like a coward and cry about being “bullied” by China.

        You only call China a “bully” because you are a “duwag” and a coward to FIGHT BACK despite the fact that NEITHER Philippines or China have any rights to the island.

        The more you call China a “bully” the more you claim yourself to being a “weakling”, a “duwag”, a coward, an insignificant adversary to China.

    It was after that report Samsung announced that it would conduct an audit of 249 suppliers in China.
    But just as Samsung promised to carry out the checks at its suppliers,CLW published another report alleging “illegal and inhumane violations” at eight Samsung factories in China.
    CLW said it had found evidence of “forced and excessive overtime”, “extensive labour contract violations”, “abuse of underage workers”, “lack of worker safety” and “severe discrimination based on age, gender, and individual characteristics unrelated to the job” among other breaches.
    Samsung said that it had conducted regular checks as well as unannounced inspections of all its factories in China in October.
    “Except the overtime issue, violations covered in the report are not in line with our knowledge,” Samsung said.
    It added that it would correct its working hours practices and meet the local guidelines by the end of 2014. BBC news

      That is true, you can even see it here  in European  TV, a Documentation film  about China’s system, how Factory Workers are suffering there,  Now, the European became so aware of Chinese products after they’ve found out that lots of them are having Toxic. And the most controvercial is the Air and water pollution in China.

    No nation can own an open sea. No nation owns the Pacific Ocean, Norwegian Sea, Atlantic Ocean or South China Sea. Open Seas are international water freeways accessible to all countries. The only manageable portion of the sea for a certain country is up to two hundred miles away from its coast.

    • Concerned Citizen

      The Philippine Sea is also big and stretches up to Japan.  Putting a checkpoint there to refrain ships from crossing to the Pacific Ocean is unimaginable.

    To the cowards who discourages us from confronting the insektos..err..chinese (Brahman are you listening?), their basic argument is this: Never board an airplane it will crash, never go swimming you might drown, never climb a stair you will fall, never ride a jeepney you will have an accident, never cross a street as cars will get you, never find a job they’ll just fire you, never get outside your house you might get abducted. Never challenged the chinese as you will lose. Never this, never that…..

    now what? Patriotic Filipinos, now what?

    Here is China finally challenging our sovereignty, totally ignoring our call to let the UN decide, thumbing its nose up on all international dialogue. Put up (a fight for it) or back off, it says!

    So now what? My suggestion is PUT UP A CHALLENGE as well. Let us guard our territorial boundary limit as well, even if it would mean a physical encounter. IT’S TIME to prepare ourselves! IT IS THE ONLY WAY to get the attention of the international community and the United Nations.

    UNLESS A FIRE IS SHOT, no one in the international community will look at this situation. They think we are not serious about our claim, that we will allow China to trample our sovereign right, small and poor country as we are. Let us prove that they are wrong!

    Time for the government to prepare for a fight!

    • PurpleDaisy13

      re: “Here is China finally challenging our sovereignty”

      Sovereignty?  You must be confused basilionisisa.

      Huangyan Island (Scarborough) has never been awarded by the United Nations (UN) as a sovereignty of the Philippines for the past 25 years since joining UNCLOS in 1984.

      Thus, you’re not fighting to defend your sovereignty…you’re fighting to grab the OIL underneath an island that is not a sovereignty of the Philippines (or China).

      Don’t lie about sovereignty as an excuse…..because everyone knows it’s all about the GREED for OIL.

  • ozkid


    Philippines must acquire surface to surface missile or anti-ship
    missile with 500 miles range or more and establish a missile command in
    strategic locations in our coastal areas including Palawan.


    Each missile would probably coast 1million dollars to 5
    million dollars each. It’s not too much to ask when our sovereignty and pride
    are at stake. A thousand missiles will equate to 1B to 5B respectively just a
    tip of the iceberg when you have  $82
    Billion in the reserve and counting, God knows how far we can go.  .


    Instead of worrying too much about getting navy boats for
    now, let us secure our domain with missile batteries. It is a quick and easy
    solution to address our immediate security requirement in protecting what is
    our own. Such will create a true deterrence and the appropriate response to
    aggressiveness of the Red monkeys that respect no laws. They’ll gonna have a
    second thought when entering the disputed seas since they’ll be vulnerable. Even
    mainland China can be reach and won’t be immune.


    Add anti-ballistic missile batteries for another $1B to
    complement the package.


    From here we can then start rebuilding our navy and air

    Asean chief Surin Pitsuwan warns on China’s ship patrol plan  The head of Asean has said China’s plan to board ships in disputed areas of the South China Sea could escalate tensions.
    Secretary-General Surin Pitsuwan told Reuters news agency that Beijing’s plan was “a very serious turn of events”.
    On Thursday China said that it granted its border patrol police the power to board and search ships in the area.
    The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also claim parts of the region.
    State media said patrols in the southern island province of Hainan would be able to board foreign ships that stopped in its waters or violated other regulations.
    The regulation allows police “to board, seize and expel foreign ships illegally entering the province’s sea areas,” the Global Times newspaper said on Wednesday.
    These activities include “illegal landing” and “carrying out publicity campaigns that endanger China’s national security”, it added.
    Analysts say patrols have so far been restricted to chasing off intruding foreign vessels.
    “My reaction is [this is] certainly an escalation of the tension that has already been building. And it is a very serious turn of events,” Mr Pitsuwan, head of the Association of South East Asian Nations’ (Asean), told Reuters.
    “The problem is that you can stake the claim, you can initiate measures and policies but there is that potential of misunderstanding, miscalculation that could lead to major tension and major incidents,” he added.
    China’s announcement comes amid an ongoing row over a map on new Chinese passports show disputed areas in the South China Sea as Chinese territory.
    Vietnam, the Philippines, and Taiwan have already complained to China, saying the map on the new passport is an infringement of their sovereignty.
    Vietnam and the Philippines have also refused to stamp the new Chinese passports and are instead issuing visas on separate sheets of paper. BBC news

    Futile and impractical. Going to war against China should not be an option and should be eliminated from the present equation. Diplomacy is the alternative. Also, letting China know that we are not a fragmented country and in unison with the world about what is wrong and what is right will make them think twice before making harsh actions. While there, let us see what we have in our eastern seaboard, the Pacific ocean side of our territory. If we find something of value, by any means, let’s go get it and profit from it. For all we know, we might be the next superpower because of it. Not in our lifetime, but there will always be a payback time.

    • PurpleDaisy13

      re: “Diplomacy is the alternative.”

      Philippines doesn’t have much to bargain with for diplomacy since China’s military is far much powerful than Philippine’s nearly non-existent Naval force while China is already in a position to exercise effective occupation and jurisdiction over Huangyan Island (Scarborough).

      Effective occupation and jurisdiction is the “key” component in being awarded sovereignty over disputed islands by an International Court as demonstrated from the historical Island dispute between the Netherlands and the United States in the Palmas Island case.

      re: “If we find something of value, by any means, let’s go get it and profit from it.”

      Although the United Nations (UN) refuses to award sovereignty of Huangyan Island (Scarborough) in favor of the Philippines for more than 25 years since joining UNCLOS, the UN has recently awarded the Philippines Benham Rise that covers a large region in Philippines east coast and is also known to be abundantly rich in oil deposits.

      Philippines leaders are risking the country towards potential war and economic conflict as well as wasting government money and time over Huangyan Island (Scarborough).

    !Prior to my family boycotting china-made grocery and food items, our monthly budget for groceries alone is $900.oo. We did an audit of what we have been purchasing and realized that 80% of our monthly grocery budget goes to purchase china-made products. Meaning, I spent $720 A MONTH supporting china’s economy, which in turn feeds its military to bully my country. That $720 is now spread to similar or alternative products made in the Philippines and ASEAN suppliers–CHINA EXCLUDED. How much is that is one year? $8,640. Imagine if even just one million out of 20 million overseas Filipinos will do the same thing. That’s $8.64 Billion a year. We are talking of grocery and food items alone. Imaging if we add up expenses on clothing, shoes, small appliances, kitchen wares and accesories. Look around us. There is so much non-china made and more superior quality products. It is a matter of taking this matter seriously in order for us to notice these alternative products.

        re: “you must not insult person who believe on God. He can drop any bomb in your house for God sake.”

        We have many people here in the States who are persecuted and criticized for believing a God that was created through the power and the imaginations of humankind.

        While the only bombs that have ever been dropped were committed by humankind, not some God.

        How could you believe in pages with stories (the Bible) written by humankind that suggest that God created planet Earth only 6,000 years ago with Adam as the first human ever created, while modern Science contradicts these pages as our planet Earth has existed for more than 245,000,000 (million) years with humankind that has existed as far back as 600,000 years ago, pepito gwaps?

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “Don’t research so much to know if there is god.”

        Pepito, there is a big difference between researching whether there is God and whether YOUR God is legitimate.  We are examining the latter.

        The Bible suggests that your God created the planet Earth only 6,000 years ago with the first man created known as Adam. 

        Do you believe in these pages written by mankind (the Bible)…or do you believe in modern Scientists that suggest the remains of Dinosaurs and Humans have been on this planet for more than 600,000 years and that the planet Earth was not created 6,000 years ago as insisted by your Bible.

        Please do not evade the question Pepito and answer the question so that you may learn whether your God is legitimate or not.

        One does not have to research too much to discover these facts….they are all easily accessible in today’s age of Information and Technology.

        re: “Just believe that everything has a beginning like there is a creature if there is creator”

        Why must your idea of a “Creator” have emotions with rules you must follow in order for you to acquire wonderful rewards?  e.g. Salvation and Everlasting life in the Heaven.

        Not all “Creators” expect their creations to follow rules.

        Let us take for example the most simple concept of creation in the chemistry of water…H2O. 

        If Electricity can “create” oxygen simply by making contact against water, then the “Creator” or “God” of oxygen would be considered “Electricity”.  Thus, does Electricity have any expectations for oxygen to meet in order for oxygen to achieve some reward? No

        Then why must your “God” or your “Creator” expect YOU to follow many rules in order to achieve the reward for Salvation and Everlasting Life in Heaven?

        These are questions you must ask yourself and ponder upon to learn not about whether God exists, but whether the men who wrote the scriptures created and invented a God that is legitimate and can withstand the contradictions presented by the power and knowledge of Modern Science.

        China is still ruled by leaders recognized as a one-state party, the Chinese Communist Party (CPP).

      • PurpleDaisy13

        rinom, you said above that “the leaders of china now abandoned the communist ideology”

        Thus, aren’t we discussing the leaders of China?

        If so, then why tell us that “even the rich people in china no longer adhere to the communist ideology.”

        Rich people in China are not the leaders of China.

        Moreover, rich people in China whom no longer adhere to the communist rules and regulations dictated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can be subject to imprisonment, execution, and stripped of all of their wealth and assets for redistribution among the people of China.

        If you can cite any member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that no longer adheres to the communist ideology, please send us a link to your source of information so that we may examine the validity of your statement.  

        Otherwise, it would be wise for you to have self-restraint in making false comments that cannot be backed-up with proof or evidence rinom.

        I don’t need to go to America rinom, I am in the states. I know many Chinese who have already bought homes here with complete cash in their bank accounts to the tune of 200 to 300 thousand dollars.

        This has nothing to do with the Chinese Communist Party (CPP) looking to become a democratic nation and away from communist ideologies.

        Rich Chinese looking to use their wealth abroad to invest their money to take advantage of capitalism in the global economy has nothing to do with overthrowing the communist leaders and communist government of China rinom.

        All this does is make China even more successful and powerful as they conduct in many large investments abroad which only add to stronger financial influence among the Chinese international community.

        You seem to see a lot of good in democracy, but you don’t realize that even your Bible teaches you to accept a form of communism.  And yet you don’t mind being subservient to a single God, or just another spiritual dictator that governs your fate and your future based on your demonstrated behavior and loyalty to his commandments, rules, and laws rinom.

        the ideology of communism does not come from the bible, but democraccy does.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “the ideology of communism does not come from the bible”

        Who appointed your God to be the judge upon the day of judgement?  The People or did your God appoint himself? 

        If it is the latter and that the People did not vote or elect your God to be the Judge, then you have no freedom and no Democracy…..but you do have Communism ruled by one leader, one lord, and one God.

        Although there are many Gods according to the Bible, your dictator demands and commands you not to worship other Gods:

        “Do not forget the covenant I have made with you, and do not worship other gods.” – 2 Kings 17:38

        Thus, you do not have the freedom or the right to vote upon the fair election of whom your next God shall be to rule and govern despite the existence of many other Gods rinom.

        Apparently, the authors of your Bible were inspired with the same ideologies of Communism. 

        They never realized that slavery was wrong (now illegal) and that Democracy would surface 2000 years in the future that would conflict with their original communist Ideologies they had written in your Bible:

        “Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like
        slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.”

        “when Jesus was ask to divide the inheritances of the two brother,,, Jesus asked them, who made me to be an arbiter/judge among you?”

        Does God lie to man?  And if God lies to man, how can you guarantee ever lasting life from a liar?

        these are two different timeline, please do not compare. one is on the earth timeline, but the other is outside of the earth time.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “earth timeline, but the other is outside of the earth time.”

        There is only one timeline rinom.  And that is the timeline from which your God (Jesus) claimed not to be an arbiter/judge for man all the way to the other end of the same timeline in which God has claimed to be the arbiter/judge for man upon Judgement Day.

        re: “do you believe this?”

        I believe you have been caught in your own lie ronim.

        Here you tell us that God does not lie:

        “God does not lie, but all men lies, he does not lie”

        And in the same sentence, you tell us that God can lie:

        “because he can do all things that he wants,”

        If God (Jesus) planned to tell man that he is not an arbitor/judge among man, but later claim to be the judge among men upon the Day of Judgement,
        ….God is permitted to lie because he can do all things that he wants.

        God is not limited like a man, correct?  Yes

        So why would you put your loyalty on a God who has lied and could also be lying about the whole idea of heaven and hell?

        Or better yet, why would you put your loyalty on the imaginations and the power of the human mind that has the capacity and capability to fabricate the attributes of God written in scripture for all men to fear and fall subservient to?

        If I took the time to write about fabricating and creating a God on paper with the collaborated efforts of my other educated friends and authors for you to fear and fall subservient to 2000 years ago, would you fall for my works of deception too rinom?

        Daisy13, do you believe in infinity? what is earths timeline compare to eternity? it is just a dot or a small line. Jesus is not the judge for that portion of line but he will be the judge after that portion of line. but anyway, Jesus was ask on specific, to divide the treasure and Jesus is not interested in earthly treasure, in which we as geedy person ussualy fallen into it. can you dispute my words if i say God cant lie because he can do all things. he does not need a helper, or adviser or our opinion, he can do as he please. then i told you man is limited so he ussualy lie, what is wrong with that?

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “Jesus is not the judge for that portion of line but he will be the judge after that portion of line.”


        According to your Bible, Jesus explicitly says he entered this world to give judgement upon mankind:

        Then Jesus told him, “I entered this world to render judgment–to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see that they are blind.” – John 9:39

        Isn’t that all in the same portion of the same timeline rinom?  Perhaps you should rethink your timeline theories that aren’t supported by your Bible. Because your God (Jesus) truly does judge man whether living or dead:

        In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: – 2 Timothy 4:1

        re: “but anyway, Jesus was ask on specific, to divide the treasure and Jesus is not interested in earthly treasure, in which we as geedy person ussualy fallen into it.”

        Jesus (your God) wasn’t asked to take the earthly treasure. Jesus was asked to divide the treasure between the two men so that their conflict and case may be settled and resolved by a judge they both considered was fair and understood JUSTICE.

        Let us review the passage you wrote once again so that you may comprehend:

        “when Jesus was ask to divide the inheritances of the two brother, Jesus asked them, who made me to be an arbiter/judge among you?”

        Was your God asked to divide the inheritance so that Jesus could be included within the division and acquire 33% of the brothers’ inheritance?  No

        But since God (Jesus) claimed to not be a judge for man, then he has lied to man since he shall be judging man on Judgement Day.

        A God who wants people to perceive him as being honest should not lie to man.  This is a mistake by the authors who wrote the Bible.  Because designing and creating a God on paper that must maintain consistency can be a challenging task for man.

      • rinom

        did you say,, Jesus Christ who will judge? will means in the future,,, and when was that? on his appearing and his kingdom. can i ask you a question, continue reading john 9:40, did the pharishees become blind? no,, so their is no judgement yet,, continue reading 41, Jesus is telling about their sins, if they will not listen their sins remains,,, and that will be in the future. now, the blind did see is not a judgement but a mercy of God. mercy triumps over judgement. ill repeat, the word remains in verse 41 means in the future.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “did you say,, Jesus Christ who will judge? will means in the future”

        So you still want to hide behind the future tense of when God shall judge man?

        Okay, let’s see if you can get away with this one rinom:

        “I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service,” – 1 Timothy 1:12

        As you can see, your God (Jesus) has already judged man for being faithful. 

        Afterall, that’s what your God (Jesus) said he would do:

        “Then Jesus said, “I have come into this world to judge: Blind people
        will be given sight, and those who can see will become blind.”
        – John 9:39

        Your God (Jesus) wants to convince people so that they may believe in what he is marketing and advocating, or punish those who do not believe.

        This is why your God appointed himself to Judge man whether you are alive or dead:

        And he ordered us to preach everywhere and to testify that Jesus is the
        one appointed by God to be the judge of all–the living and the dead.
        – Acts 10:42

        I am sorry rinom, but it is clear that your God (Jesus) is the supreme judge in your timeline regardless if you are still living on Earth or dead in your grave.

        Thus, your God (Jesus) has lied to you about not being a judge among man.

        If you continue to try to dispute this lie that has been uncovered, you may become mentally troubled if you cannot accept what you never realized about your God….as being a liar.

        But perhaps you may not need to blame your real God. You may blame the the men, the authors of the Bible who did not carefully notice this mistake in their efforts to design and create a perfect God for you.
        If they had a computer, it would have been easier to review, share, edit and correct their passages so that such contradicting mistakes in your Bible would not be published.

      • rinom

        in 1 tim. 1:12, timothy is thanking God because God considered him as faithful, or counted him as faithfu, but in your translation judged him as faithful. assuming the proper word is judged him as faithful, my question is what is the penalty? there is none. so again you miss it. john 9:39 i already answered. now in acts 10:42, the word there is “to be the judge” and to be means in the future, until the fulness of time has come. to cut my explanation short, yes Jesus did Judged one very specific, but not yet implemented the penalty, it was Judas his betrayer, when Jesus said it would have been better if Judas was not born, but his reason is ,, so that the scripture must be fullfiled. i said he judged Judas but the penalty is still on the resurection day. end of my discussion regarding this one.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “assuming the proper word is judged him as faithful, my question is what is the penalty? there is none.”

        rinom, English is a very simple language to comprehend and yet you’re asking me something so easy to figure out.

        John, Let’s review the passage once again to educate you:

        “I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service,” – 1 Timothy 1:12

        Now that you see the section of the passage in bold.  Doesn’t it occur to you that the reward in this judgement for being faithful is the opportunity to be appointed in Jesus’ service

        Otherwise, the penalty is the DENIAL of being appointed in Jesus’ service.  I can’t believe you didn’t realize that the answer was right in front of you rinom.

        re: “Jesus did Judged one very specific, but not yet implemented the penalty”

        It doesn’t matter if Jesus executed a penalty or not.  You’ve just admitted that Jesus did Judge.

        And that’s all that matters in determining a LIE in a Court of Justice.

        And that is….by initially claiming Not to be a judge over man, and then contradicting the original claim by judging man with a reward. 

        All of which your God (Jesus) has demonstrated according to your Bible in which man or authors did not edit with care and consistency.

        re: “now in acts 10:42, the word there is “to be the judge” and to be means in the future”

        Not just the future rinom, but during the time man is alive and even when they die.

        You cannot win a debate if you think you can get away with omitting the sentences that follow the phrase you’ve pointed out rinom:

        to be the judge of all–the living and the dead

        If you have to resort to such useless trickery, then your defenses may already be crumbling rinom.

        Because even I can write a Bible using Microsoft Word to scan and edit for inconsistencies so that humans in the future could not find any fault in my attempt to design and create a perfect God in which people 2000 years from now may worship rinom.

        And all I have to say is that my writings were inspired by God to become authenticated along with a touch of better communist ideologies so that worshipers will have very little opportunity to stray away from the new faith and religion for the people of 4012.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “do you not know, a day in the Lord is as 1000 years or vice versa”

        rinom, if you don’t know your Bible then don’t lie.  There is a huge difference between your “IS” and “IS LIKE”. Your Bible says “Is LIKE” not “IS”:

        “But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.” – 2 Peter 3:8

        “IS” doesn’t mean “IS LIKE”….hopefully you have had a proper education in English comprehension to know this rinom.

        Thus, this passage does not suggest that Adam lived for 930,000 years ((930 x 365 x 1000)/365)….it is clearly written in your Bible written by the authors as 930 years:

        Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died – Genesis 5:5

        If all you do is lie to yourself anyway you can to convince yourself that you are correct, then you are simply not being honest to yourself rinom.

        re: “you do not answer me. but you want to discuss the peking man who lived 400k years.”

        rinom, it appears you are having trouble trying to resolve a “timeline” in which your Bible suggests that planet Earth was created 6,000 years ago, while modern Science disagrees and provide proof that planet Earth was created sometime much farther back than 402,000 based on the discover of fossils and human bones and even far back as 245,000,000 (million) years based on the discovery of dinosaur bones.

        Again language, culture, migration is completely irrelevant in trying to validate whether planet Earth was created just 6,000 years ago rinom.  Why dwell on such futile discussions that are unrelated to the timeline of Earth’s existence?

        i thank you because you copy the scripture, there are two more good scripture about this, but anyway i will answer you. nobody in his sound mind can prove a day is equal to or equevalent to or is 1000 years. there are two time, time of earth and time of God. the passage is saying a 1000 years here on earth time is like a day in Gods time, or vice versa. or in other verses, a 1000 years here on earth is like a watch in the night in the eyes of God. or vice versa. what you cant understand there? what i am trying to prove is, God did not lie, when he declare to adam ,, the day you ate it you surely die. regards to your million age dinasour, 30 years ago i ask my co office who is a geologist, if our bones can really exist for a million years,,, he just laugh at me, then i ask him, how about half million years? then he told me, who told you that? rinom, if you die today, your bones will not be there for ten years if it is exposed to air or sunlight because bacteria will eat it. now some are preserve because they are not exposed to air, but i doubt if it can live as it is for 100,000 years. i did not say the palnet earth is only 6000 to 7000 years old, i said, it is adam who is 6000 to 7000 years foday. my question is why focus on the dinasours who live according to you mililions of years? you have no access to that, you cant prove that, and it is irrelevant.

        re: “i thank you because you copy the scripture”


        Copying your scripture compared to what I would do in creating a version of my own scripture is very different rinom. SO different that people 2000 years from now can easily distinguish that of which speaks the truth and that of which is obsolete.

        First of all, I would not make the mistake of writing that Adam as having lived for only 930 years, I would write that Adam lived for 930,000,000,000 (billion) years to be safe. Furthermore, I would not call him Adam, and simply give him a believable and generic term such as the “the First Human”.  This way, worshipers do not associate mine with some fairytale bedtime story about Adam and Eve who lived in the Garden of Eden Once upon a Time.

        re: “the passage is saying a 1000 years here on earth time is like a day in Gods time, or vice versa.”

        Yes we all know what this means rinom. In summary, it means that our lifetime may feel very long but to your God it is just a blink of an eye.  

        This is no different than your explanation of a timeline where our entire life is just a dot in your God’s timeline. Thus, there is nothing to expand on this.

        re: “rinom, if you die today, your bones will not be there for ten years if it is exposed to air or sunlight because bacteria will eat it”

        rinom, ask your co-worker how long bones will last when they are preserved in a fossil. Then tell us how many billions of years did your co-worker reply as an answer.

        If he is a legitimate geologist, then his answer should range somewhere around 3,400,000,000 (billion) years.

        By this time, you can cry on your geologist’s shoulder for feeling a sense of instability with regard to your own faith and your growing doubts about your own Bible’s suggestion of planet Earth being created just 6,000 years ago.

        You really should stop defending yourself rinom if you want to remain living in a fantasy world written by authors with similar intentions as I would have. And that is to invent and create the perfect God you could believe in and worship. Because we all have something in common, and that is to Create and Control using our fantastic sense of human Ingenuity and Creativity.

        to be safe is different from the truth, truth is truth no matter what, whether we belive it or not it is still the truth. to be safe means there is some deceits or you are not sure. the bible is truth, whether you believe it or not. are you telling me,,, the animals buried for millions of years becomes fossil oil? assuming it is true, but you no longer can identify them if it becomes oil,, so it is useless. example our body die today and it was preserved to become oil, can you identify the body after millions of years, assuming it can,, but the question is ,,who will,, or who will live a million years to do the experiment? the bible is telling us,, if a man dies, his physical body will return to dust, ,,,, how can you refute this? the bible is telling us,,, the living know they are going to die, but the dead know nothing,,, can you refute this? who on earth believes he is not going to die? the bible is telling us,, it is appointed unto man man to live and die once and then the judgement,,,, do you believe this? again, who told you the planet earth is only 6000 years old, check my blog and i did not write it. what i write is adam is about 6000 to 7000 years today. my question to my co worker is,, how long can a bone be identified as it is, i am not asking how long can a bone to become a fossil oil,,, but i have so many things to tell you about that , but i prefered not to. it seems you care about too much or too long ago but you neglected to see or study what is infront of you. as i have said no body can experiment and prove what really happened on earth millions of years ago, if earth is really that old. man lives only 70 years old or 80, who will continue your experiment ,, or who handed down those experiment thousand of years ago for you to believe,, for science promulgate their conclusion through experiments, they conduct experiments then conclude. science is trial and error, and sometimes science faltered. and becomes obsolete. buth truth is truth no matter what.

        re: “the bible is truth, whether you believe it or not.”

        A book written by man inspired to invent and create an ideal God in which you can believe and worship 2000 years ago does not qualify as the TRUTH rinom.

        Just because you think the bible is the truth and religious leaders have forced and convinced you to believe it as the truth since you were a baby, does not make it the TRUTH either rinom.

        In order for you to defend the authors of the Bible against being false, you must prove that our planet Earth was created by your God 6,000 years ago as suggested by your Bible.

        If you fail to prove this, then your Bible is NOT the truth, whether you believe it or not.

        re: “the animals buried for millions of years becomes fossil oil? assuming it is true, but you no longer can identify them if it becomes oil,, so it is useless.”

        What is this talk about oil rinom?  Is that the kind of  science taught in the Philippines?  Fossils have nothing to do with liquid oil rinom, it has everything to do with impressions of bones left on rock or better known as fossils.

        We’re not talking about fossil fuels…please rinom.

        re: “my question to my co worker is,, how long can a bone be identified as it is, i am not asking how long can a bone to become a fossil oil,,,”

        GIGO…do you know that technical term rinom?  It stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out.  Obviously you asked him the wrong question.

        We’re not talking about bones exposed to air or fossil oil here. Let us educate you on the definition of a fossil:

        “The remains or impression of a prehistoric organism preserved in petrified form or as a mold or cast in rock

        If you want to know how modern science can manage to determine how something has existed millions of years to billions of years in the past, ask your co-worker or do the research on your own about fossils….not bones or fossil oil or fossil fuels.

        re: “as i have said no body can experiment and prove what really happened on earth millions of years ago, if earth is really that old. man lives only 70 years old or 80, who will continue your experiment”

        rinom, if you continue to refuse how modern technology, modern science, and fossils have been used to discover how dinosaurs have existed 240,000,000 (million) years ago, then you are in complete denial to learn the truth.

        Go do some heavy research regarding fossils. And look at many of the photos that clearly identify the impressions of bones, leaves, insects, etc. some of which have been discovered and identified to have lived 245,000,000 (millions) of years ago rinom.

        The discoveries of modern science has uncovered a complete contradiction to your Bible which suggests that our Planet Earth was created since 6,000 years ago.

        re: “as i have said no body can experiment and prove what really happened on earth millions of years ago,”

        If you believe that nobody can really experiment and prove what really happened on earth millions of years ago, then why do you trust an author of your Bible when you’ve just admitted that nobody can really experiment and prove what really happened in the past which includes the truth behind the first man created on Earth?

        Modern technology and Science do not use fossils to try to prove “What Happened” on earth millions of years ago, Fossils are used to prove “What Existed” on earth millions of years ago.  Do you know the difference between “Happened” and “Existed” rinom?  

        Hopefully you do. Otherwise, you need to find a dictionary.  Better yet, we’ll educate you right here on the meaning of “Exist”:

        to be living; live

        And now, we will educate you right here on the meaning of “Happen”:

        to come about or take place; occur

        So you see rinom, you need to polish your comprehension of English words first to learn the truth because without a good grasp in English comprehension, you’re doomed to be deceived and will fail in your ability to communicate properly.

        re: “what i write is adam is about 6000 to 7000 years today.”

        What you wrote is false according to your own Bible. Again, your own Bible clearly states that adam is 930 years old:

        “Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.” – Genesis 5:5

        Why do you say Adam is about 6000 to 7000 years today when the guy already died after 930 years according to your Bible?  

        Are you making your own new scriptures too rinom?  I guess you’re already ahead of me.

        i perceived you are an advocate because you are good in twisting the word, but anyway i will answer you, okay, in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. when was he created the heavens and the earth? no one knows. so do not tell me or do not assume the earth is only 6000 years old, because the bible did not say so. ill repeat, the bible is not telling, the earth is only 6000 years old. but adam in my calculation is 6000 to 7000 years from today. ill repeat, adam from today is 6000 to 7000 years ago. i will forget about the fossil oil, i will focus on the marks that the bones left on the stone. you are telling the marks, or the bone itself is from the dinosaur because you read it or somebody told you, right? and you believe it, and you say it. now, the bible is telling us,, if a man dies his physical body will return to dust, i see it so i declare it. but the print on the stone i cant declare it because i doubt it. i doubt if a bone can live a million years. if a jewel can become a diamond in a million years because of heat and pressure, why the bone cant disintegrate after a million of years? adam lived 930 years, okay he lived 930 years, but the question is when is the start of the counting? from the day he was created or from the day he ate the fruit? anyone you can choose, it does not matter. as long as i know the distance of adam from today in time is 6000 to 7000 years. if you do not believe the bible, try to contradict or refute the verses that i give you,,, in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.,, what is wrong in the sentence?,, for the living know they are going to die but the dead know nothing.,,, try to refute the sentence.,, if a man dies, his physical body will return to dust,,, do you not believe this?,,, for it is appointed unto man to live and die once and then the judgement.,, are you not aware of this? let us go back and examine your sentence,,, dinosaur lives on earth millions years ago, the dinosaur lives on earth millions of years ago, our dinosaur lived on earth millions of years ago,,,, what is that to us? whether they live or not millions of years ago, still you cant refute the verse,,, for the living know they are going to die but the dead know nothing.,,, do you know a man who is not going to die?

        re: “ill repeat, the bible is not telling, the earth is only 6000 years old.”

        rinom, you must not be Catholic. The Catholic church calculated and concluded that your Bible suggests that planet Earth was created 6,000 years ago (or 4,000 B.C.)

        You realize that the Catholic church was responsible for choosing which scriptures were valid and which were denied in compiling and creating your Bible don’t you?  
        Without the efforts and wisdom of the Catholic church in compiling your Bible, you would not be here today trying every trick possible to defend your Bible rinom.  Because your Bible would not exist and the words you think is the truth would have never seen the light of day.

        Are you denying the Catholic church about their discovery regarding planet Earth being only 6,000 years old rinom?

        Or will you conform and remain subservient to the Catholic church for their discovery?

        re: “if a jewel can become a diamond in a million years because of heat and pressure, why the bone cant disintegrate after a million of years?”

        Thank you for admitting your belief in that diamonds require millions of years to form as your defense rinom. You’ve just made it much easier for me to get through to your head.

        According to modern Science, diamonds that have come to the Earth’s surface are generally quite old, ranging from under 1 billion to 3.3 billion years old.

        So now that we have established an understanding and have caught you in your admittance that planet Earth must be at minimum 1,000,000 (million) years old, you’re in big trouble now rinom.

        We’ve got you cornered.

        Who shall you now believe?

        a) the Catholic church who suggests that planet Earth was created 6,000 (4,000 BC) years ago as calculated through scriptures in your Bible.


        b) modern Science who suggests that planet Earth was created beyond 1,000,000 (million) years ago as calculated through advanced technologies used to determine the age of Diamonds.

        Take your pick rinom. But you can’t pick both.

        Either you believe in the magic written on paper by authors 2000 years ago, or through modern advanced methods and technologies of today rinom.

        rinom, Dinosaurs existed 245,000,000 (million) years ago.  The Bible suggests that God created this planet Earth only 6,000 years ago with the first man called Adam.

        How could God have create Dinosaurs on planet Earth 245,000,000 (million) years ago when the Bible suggests that planet Earth did not even exist during that time and that God had only created planet Earth just 6,000 years ago rinom?

        in china the oldest known written document written by man is only 5000 years old and so as other civilization. who told you the age of dinosaurs are million years? i doubt it. yes, the age of Adam is maybe 7000 years today, but the age of the planet earth is not 7000 years old, it may be a milion years because the earth was created ahead of Adam, and there is no specific in the the bible how long the time is. in addition Adam was created immortal and we do not know how long his immortal was when he ate the forbidden fruit. but i am sure by the time he ate the fruit until now it is onlly 7000 years.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        re: “in china the oldest known written document written by man is only 5000 years old”


        The oldest known Chinese writing was written by man 8600 years ago while Chinese pottery existed more than 22,000 years ago.

        re: “who told you the age of dinosaurs are million years?”

        Relying on being “told” by someone is the typical and poor traditional method of the Filipino education system.  The year today is 2012 in which such primitive ways of learning is no longer the trend rinom.  You can read this for yourself and do your own research on the discoveries of anthropologists, archeologists, and modern scientists in today’s information highway.

        Simply look up the various sources for the existence of Dinosaurs. 

        Your Philippine education system may have chosen not to educate you in the history of Dinosaurs as it can conflict with your Christian belief that was based on a bunch of old papers written and translated over and over by man 2000 years ago.

        But modern Scientists have concluded that Chinese pottery existed 22,000 years ago while Dinosaur fossils and bones existed 245,000,000 (million) years ago.

        All of which should not have existed if your Bible suggests that planet Earth was only created by your God 6000 years ago.

        re: “and there is no specific in the the bible how long the time is.”

        rinom, the
        Bible provides a complete genealogy from Adam to Jesus. You can
        go through the genealogies and add up the years. You’ll get a total
        that is just over 4,000 years. Add the 2,000 years since the time
        of Jesus and you get just over 6,000 years since God created everything.

        Did your religious leaders never bother to do their math or tell you that part of the truth rinom?

        re: “in addition Adam was created immortal”

        There are no passages in the Bible that says Adam was created immortal rinom.

        You simply have to come to grip with reality rinom.  The Bible teaches that planet Earth was created 6,000 years ago which suggest that the Bible does not teach the truth as our modern Scientists confirm that Chinese pottery existed 22,000 years ago while Dinosaurs existed 245,000,000 (million) years ago.

        Thus, if you want to continue to live in a fantasy world of immortals, magic, miracles, heavens, demons, and angry Gods, do yourself a favor and NEVER educate yourself on the science and technologies of Radiocarbon dating. rinom.

        re: “i have study the time of the great flood and the flood was only 6000 years old.”


        Your studies of the great flood were done improperly. The great flood occurred 4344 years ago during the time of Noah according to the Bible.

        re: “now tell me, do you know how human being was scattered all over the earth with diferent languages and how it is with the advanment of science , mans age cant go beyond 120 years.”

        Trying to figure out how human beings were scattered all over the earth with different languages is irrelevant in determining whether or not your Bible is telling the truth about our planet Earth being created only 6,000 years ago rinom.

        You must stay focused with trying to defend whether or not your Bible is telling a lie or telling the truth about the Earth being only 6,000 years old. We aren’t concerned about cultures or migration mysteries rinom.

        re: “oh by the way, God said to adam the day you ate that fruit you will surely die,, is my answer why adam was emmortal.”

        According to your Bible, Adam lived for 930 years of his life. Thus, Adam was not immortal…he still died:

        “After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters.” – Genesis 5:4

        you do not know why people were scattered all over the face of the earth with different language, but you adhere to the peking man who lived 400,000 years ago. sounds familiar, the bible says, in the time of kingdom of babel God scattered them abroad and confused their language, that was almost 1000 years after the flood. do you not know, a day in the Lord is as 1000 years or vice versa, or in other verse, a 1000 years in the Lord is like a watch in the night? so adam live 930 years. when was the start of that time? from the day he ate the fruit. from the day adam ate the fruit he became immortal and lived 930 years or equal to a day in the Lord. if before the flood man can live 900 years but now with the advancement of science, man can live 80 years,,, you do not answer me. but you want to discuss the peking man who lived 400k years. learn to study what is infront of you and not the bone of a peking man. does you modern science know where is the foundation of the earth, where it is hanged?

It will cost so much time and so much money if ships cann’t use the Sea, alangan namang doon pa dadaan sa parting karagatan ng Australia,  ay napakalayo niyon kung titingnan ang mapa, kaya impotante sa halos buong mundo ang karagatang iyon.

      re: “na walang RIGHTS ang Pilipinas sa ipinaglalabang Territoryo na sakop ng ating 200 NM EEZ.”

      You have rights to protect the marine life and resources within your Philippine 200 nm mile EEZ.

      However, you are limited and do not have rights to Huangyan Island (Scarborough) that has it’s own 12-mile territorial sea surrounding it in which is also NOT recognized by the UN as being a sovereignty of the Philippines (or China).

      Do you understand English lourda?

      You and your Philippines and China are both on the same boat….GREEDY to grab and fight for the OIL underneath Huangyan Island (Scarborough) that does not belong to EITHER country. 

      re: “they will continue bulliying their neighbouring countries”

      Neither China or Philippines can be labeled as a “bully” because both China and Philippines DO NOT OWN the ISLAND.

      If you and another person discover a $1000 dollar bill on the floor that doesn’t belong to either of you and yet you both want it, would you call the other a “bully”?  No

        Not exactly lourda.  I believe Huangyan Island (Scarborough/Panatag) belongs to China from a historical perspective for being the longest living civilization on this planet.

        But in order to avoid circular arguments and achieve stronger influence, I would need to view the dispute from a legal perspective.

        This puts you at a disadvantage because you are no longer seen as having any legal and legitimate sovereignty over Huangyan Island (Scarborough/Panatag) and neither does China.

        It lets everyone realize the legalities, the truth, and the facts surrounding this whole dispute and how GREEDY BOTH YOU and China are over the OIL.

        If you are supposed to be a Christian Nation, then naturally…you and the Philippines SHOULD BACK OFF to avoid WAR and conflict…unless you want to show the world that you’re a FAKE Christian country that will surrender to the temptation of GREED for the reward of OIL.

    The belligerence of China at this point may be a sign that that country has reached an understanding with the US and the European powers.

     Those countries may prefer to have China protect the safety of those sea-lanes than seeing the entire area sub-divided into 6 or 7 sectors, each under a different government with its own rules and regulations. The danger of piracy will be higher in the latter case.

    Of course, the US have already laid the groundwork to protect alternate sea-lanes south of Mindanao through the Visiting Forces Agreement..

    Ganito yan eh, pag natapakan ng China ang isa lupa nung araw (as in nung araw pa talaga), kanila daw yun.  If we follow the same logic, malamang pati Amerika kanila.

    Time is tickling…it is high time for the government official to act. China does not believe in God, the only language it understands is the show of brutal behaviour and the Philippines doesn’t have the means to counter it. Our leaders can go to the UN, as the world police. China’s warning “do not internationalize” can’t help the Philippines.

    We need to develop a credible naval force. In the interim, The Phils can send 1000 fishing vessels in the West Philippine Sea and go fishing.
