What a joke.
Is Obama retarded or WHAT?
.
With old Coast Guard ships?
.
Obama has gone insane.

If you voted for him please go flush your head in the toilet, NOW!

All the Philippians I knew hated America anyway.
Ungrateful lot that they are.
Coast Guard ships are not used for combat. They are for search and rescue.
You just asked half the Americans to flush their heads.
Get acquainted with more Filipinos. There's 4 million of them in the US and 40,000 arrive there every year since 1979.
I think you are the retarded one.

Read it then tell me what the ships are to be used for then tell me who the retard is.
Every one of them that I've met hates America.
I don't care what your statistics say.
They don't mean a thing to me.
Yes, and if I may quote the article
"It will further intensify our patrolling of the Philippines' exclusive economic zone and our capability to quell any threat and bad elements, respond to search and rescue operations and take care of our marine resources," Aquino told a crowd that included U.S. Ambassador Harry Thomas.
As I said it's for search and rescue and other things. That's what these ships were designed for.
Coast Guard ships are not capable of butting heads with Chinese war ships - China spends $120 billion a year for its military. No Navy in the region can currently outspend them.
My stats still tell you its illogical to say that Filipinos hate the same country they want to migrate to.

Chinese ships are slapped together. They cannot build their own engines. Only copy.

It's all a stupid show from Obama the coward.
Actually there is a Mutual Defense Treaty between US and PH. To summarize it, it states that any attack on PH is deemed as an attack on US and vice versa. So by the treaty, US is bound to do something. There are also joint military exercises conducted by both US and PH that plan is still active to date.

Japan just launched their biggest warship since WWII and knowing how capable the Japanese are they can also build a rocket that seeks the ass of the china men leader who try to steal every other country's territories. Japan and PH, USA aside, may incur enough threat to China's economic and military power if the chinks persist on being such a bully.

Even that are too costly for the poor Philippines. It's all China's fault, had the Chinese not being so greedy and want to grab territories the Philippines would not have to spend so much money on arms to defend their country.
