So does anyone know what this means as far as the big picture? What does this mean for those of you military strategists's? Will this hurt the U.S.A.'s effort for a buildup in the area, etc?
Using a leader's problems to justify neo imperialism, black ops, violation of their sovereignty, and regime change, is both unethical and illegal under international law. Further, it would be clear that it's for ulterior motives.

Well there is always a silver lining. I believe we give the Philippines some $200M a year in foreign aid plus another $30M in Military aid. Guess China can start paying that bill now.
