Has the Philippines lost the West Philippine Sea to China?

By Chiara Zambrano, ABS-CBN News

MANILA – Has the Philippines lost the West Philippine Sea to China?

That’s the belief of a congressman and a military historian after aerial intelligence photographs have surfaced showing the large scale construction of military facilities by China in the disputed waters.

But the Department of Foreign Affairs says no one should count the Philippines out yet.

Chiara Zambrano tells us more in this report.

    That’s what we got, for kicking out the Americans from Subic Naval Base and Clark Air Base, good job,Cory. Chinese Naval and Air Force base are being built inside PH territory.In my opinion, the military base will be ready before the US election on 2016.China will deploy their short range(300-500Km)and medium range(800-1000Km)ballistic missiles which could destroy ALL our military camps and bases in less than one hour. Tabako will be happy because we will be buying thousands of Patriot anti-missiles from the US, this will drain the PH economy.

      Mario oh your right what you said in your comment. That’s what you get when you kick out the giant? The giant is the Americans. If America was still at Subic Naval Base and Clark Air Base, the Chinese Naval and Air Force base wouldn’t being built inside Philippines territory? Philippines wrong judgement about putting out the Americans out of Philippines?
