Philippines, as an ally of the United States, is expected to give full support to the latter if the U.S. is attacked by North Korea as per its threat. One major aspect that is being eyed for are the previous military bases once used by the Americans on Philippine territories for decades. Yes, by all means – they are permitted to once again put those bases back to its warfare readiness as deemed appropriate according to this news:
Manila: The US would be allowed to station forces at military bases in the Philippines if it went to war with North Korea, Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said Saturday citing a treaty between the allies. “Our mutual defence treaty calls for joint action if either the Philippines or the United States is attacked,” del Rosario said in comments sent to AFP at a time of heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula. http://www.ndtv.com/article/world/philippines-offers-us-its-military-bases-in-case-of-north-korea-war-353644
The move is expected to be beneficial for both countries – for the U.S. to have strategic locations for their bases and for the Philippines to strengthen its military capabilities – that is so timely with the constant trespassing of Chinese vessels on prohibited sea lines and hopefully for the Malaysians to stop their alleged human rights violations to Filipinos living in Sabah.
