The most surprising thing about this story is that the Philippines actually have a warship.

Its an old coastguard cutter. Got to start somewhere.

This reminds me of when I used to run my mouth off as a child to much bigger kids because I knew my big brother would protect me.

Philippines is not a good ally at all. They have no Navy or Air Force. We don't need anything from them but they need everything from us.

Want to give them high tech equipment? They can't even maintain a machine gun. The C-130 they have can't fly it's broke or they can't afford to put gas in it. That's how corrupt the military is.

Funny how they brag about their new war ship but fail to mention they couldn't even pay for it. Hand me down from the U.S.

The Phils. is the most pro-American country in the world.

If the USA can't even keep them as an ally then America has lost the whole world.

Mark my words, that ship will fall apart faster than a jeepney on a highway. Maintaining anything here is considered wasted money, money that can go into the pockets of the officers.

The US left working radar sites, gun boats, and air craft.
Wallace Air Station and other sites stripped down and turned into casinos.

Filipina Friends on Facebook putting like on Chinese made clothing. Can't help anyone not willing to help theirselves. I never seen any protese in front of Chinese Embassy.

An ally does not kick their biggest benefactor and their bases out of the country because a few commies in their country whine too much, but notwithstanding it was a good thing as the US now does not have to spend the billions on the filips economy for the bases and personnel. You sow what you reap is a true saying in this case, carry on filips and good luck.

Far as the off topic above, it's the radar sites sold for scrap metal could be guarding the skies. Gun boats I seen before flying the Philippine flag could be patroling the islands. With Subic gone, maybe nobody to buy parts and repair boats. The boats maybe Vietnam era, but quick and could have been updated with eletronics and missles.
