Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said that there will be an energy meeting in China soon that is a clear indication that President Duterte’s state visit to China late last year was a success and is now generating benefits for the country. President Rodrigo Duterte is very vocal in his criticisms of the United States during the Obama administration. He is consistent, however, to pursue a stronger relationship with China and Russia. Meanwhile, incoming US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson provokes the Chinese when he said that they should be prevented from occupying artificial islands they built in parts of the South China Sea that China is disputing with the Philippines and other countries.

[VIDEO]: In the year 2016, China and the United States are both world superpowers. They have similarly matched military, even though the United States spends a lot more money. In this military comparison, we are comparing China and USA, to see how they match up against each other and see who would win. Who do you think would win in a fight between China and the United States (air force, navy, nuclear, etc)? Which military is stronger and smarter? Also, let us know which military comparison we should do next!
Duterte’s Friendly Terms with China
President Rodrigo Duterte’s state visit to China last year creates a stir when he introduces Bongbong Marcos to a group of Chinese businessmen as the new Vice President if he wins the electoral protest. Marcos also is very active in many business gatherings under the Duterte administration that involve the local Chinese businessmen or the Filipino-Chinese groups.
Why do the Americans Provoke US-China War?
Unless Washington plans to wage a large-scale war in the South China Sea, approaches to prevent Chinese access to the islands will be interfering with other countries. Tillerson, who is a former ExxonMobile chief executive officer, told US senators that he would seek to deny Beijing access to the artificial islands that China has been building in the South China Sea. He noted that China’s actions in the region are similar to Russia’s invasion of Crimea. This is a careless a comment that can easily provoke the nuclear-armed Asian giant which is China for the US-China war.
Asian Alliance is Crucial for U.S. to win the War with China
It is not the Philippines that needs the Americans at this era. Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines are U.S. allies in terms of foreign policy but might be changing soon. The Philippine’s president Duterte is determined to be friends with China the same as during Marcos’ time. The Prime Minister of Japan also recently visited the Philippines and even Mindanao to strengthen bilateral efforts between the two countries. The U.S. can have war with China – but should not use the South China Sea dispute the ignite it – since negotiations are ongoing in the region for peace’s sake.
Disaster of Nuclear War
What is America trying to do? Set a military base in Korea and fight a nuclear war with China? Given the distance, it’s the Asia-Pacific region that is the recipient of the massive disaster. The U.S. is safe at the other end. What happened to the humanitarian principle they kept on accusing President Duterte who is allegedly violating it?
