Urgent care is needed in the ongoing US-Philippines military exercises in front of Taiwan. This is what Senator Imee Marcos cautioned earlier. But her brother, President Bongbong Marcos assures the public that China has nothing to worry about on EDCA. Under the two country’s defense treaty, the military bases in the country that are now accessible by the Americans cannot be used offensively. They are only for defensive retaliation should national security be put to test. Some businessmen dealing with China are a bit worried. However, local fishermen in the Scarborough Shoal are celebrating. At long last, they have a president that is ready to defend them against the Chinese forces’ bullying.
