US Loses Philippines

With VFA uncertain, Duterte lashes out at U.S. once again

Official notice for US military to GTFO of Philippines within 180 days has been sent.

The Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) has been terminated.

 

 

 

Their greivances appear to be the threats & blackmail from the CIA, the disregard for their sovereignty & that housing US military bases makes them more of a target should war break out (btw US & China).

 

The Filipino govt cannot confirm whether there are US nuclear arms in their country.

As China shuts down its manufacturing and everyone closes its borders to China, Chinas new export will be the coronavirus! Just like with the Spanish flu, the next flu season will be brutal!

Throwing your toys won't prevent the shit hole empire from being pushed out of our side of the Pacific, stokkebbye. Duterte is right - Philippines will be better off as an independent country.

China's manufacturing has been shutdown for 3 weeks & is slowly coming back online now. The shutdown has implications all over the world. Things will be laggy for at least a month. Flu season is nearly over.

I suggest you study history. Particularly the part where China was the largest & most advanced superpower for most of the past few millennia. They had a bad couple centuries thanks to the industrial revolution & European colonialism but they're back & won't make the same mistakes again. You're lucky they're not vengeful or imperialistic.
