TOPIC: National Security idea from fb Post of Sir Alunan:
I think its worth a page here.
morning makes my mind roam free to things that could be. With the West
Phil Sea in mind and protection of our resources there, bearing in mind
what could be thrown against us to grab it and prevent us from defending
or regaining it, I'd like to see a credible sub-surface and
anti-submarine force created with no time to lose as it takes time to
put everything in place.
It would be good to have AT LEAST 6
diesel-electric hunter-killer subs; ALL surface vessels (Frigates,
Corvettes, OPVs, SSVs, LSVs) with anti-submarine warfare capability;
mine-laying and counter-measures ships; and a respectable air component,
both fixed wing and rotary, working seamlessly to render our EEZ and
SLOCs safe against any threat from any foe lurking beneath our seas"..
is interested first and foremost in our geographical location. By
controlling the Philippines it can secure itself better by stretching
its territorial and maritime limits, from the South China Sea (to our
west) to the Pacific (to our east).
The vast resources of the
Philippines are the spoils that will belong to the victor. That includes
deuterium, rare earths, gold, nickel, iron ore, copper, black sand, oil
It doesn't need to invade and colonize. It just has
to infiltrate fifth columns and buy our corrupt, unpatriotic
politicians, gatekeepers and businessmen, as they are doing now. Bribe
money, dummyism, trojan horses, laundered funds and drugs are the
easiest to facilitate control.
