Good strategy from Duterte, opening ties with Russia and China is very important. Look what happened on Vietnam, their economy is booming, they were devastated after the Vietnam war, now their economy is much better then the PH. Vietnam were equipped with Russian made SU-34 fighterjets,tanks, missile and a joint venture with Russia to develop anti ship 600 miles cruise missile, installed on small attack boats.Cam Ran Bay is occupied by Russian Navy and it is the stop-over for gas supply on the Russian Bear bomber that circle the globe. Due to close tie-up between Russia and Vietnamese, US was intrigue so they help Vietnam economy by bring-in American manufacturing company.Look at our neighboring countries including China, it was US who helped their economy. These were the complaint by Marcos during his time and said to the American, “we fought side by side during WW2, home come you went ahead to help Japan, Korea,first and all Asian countries except the PH.” That comment made the US Media,US politicians started to hate Marcos, the truth is; US knew that PH will ever be loyal to America, so no need to help them.
