That just means we'll have to continue to deepen ties with India, being the worlds largest democracy,

Thats a pretty good summary I do disagree one one point the Philippines:
Despite the maniac they have running the countries sound bites, there are deep ties between the two countries and I do not believe Obama caused the rift
They are just as concerned as the rest of the region with Chicom's expansion and have several disputed islands they are ill equipped to defend.
Also if you track aircraft you see a fair number of SOCOM Do-338's traversing the country doing lord knows what but they would only be there with government permission AND cooperation with the Filipino military
