That is too close to Palawan Island.

It won't be long until the Chinese claim Palawan.

During the deployment, the strike group -- which entered the South China Sea on Sunday -- has traveled the Indo-Pacific region, working with allies from South Korea, Japan, Australia, India and Malaysia, he said.

"We look forward to continuing to sail together with all those that embrace our collective vision of security and stability in one of the most important regions in the world," Verissimo said.

The TRCSG consists of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, the guided-missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill, the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Russell, Carrier Air Wing 11 and Destroyer Squadron 23.

The strike group is slated to conduct fixed and rotary-wing flight operations, maritime strike exercises, anti-submarine operations, coordinated tactical training and other activities while deployed in the area.

Last week, the TRSCSG participated in a joint maritime exercise in the Indian Ocean with the Indian navy's frigate Shivalik and P-8 surveillance plane, as well as India's Russian-designed Su-30MKI fighter planes.

There's this thing called the salami slicing, where if you take a tiny slice of salami a day, you won't notice any missing, but before you realize it, half the d**n salami is missing! This is what China is doing, in that they're slowly taking more and more land around their borders, and no one was really noticing it. Hopefully governments around the world put a stop to it before its too late

The Philippine military is sending light fighter aircraft to fly over hundreds of Chinese vessels in disputed waters in the South China Sea, its defence minister said, as he repeated his demand the flotilla be withdrawn immediately.

reliance on the US made the Philippine Navy very weak. Even Vietnam & Indonesia have credible defenses. Duterte needs a 20-year plan to modernize the Navy fleet & Air force.

I applaud Duterte for being a man of his words because he did not rely on the US-Philippine defense pact.

There will be no US-Philippine coalition until Duterte finishes his last remaining terms.  Maybe in two years, the next president will bring back the U.S naval base.
