MANILAL: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today vowed military support for the Philippines, delivering a firm message from the deck of an American warship at a time of rising tensions with China.
On a steaming hot day on Manila Bay, Clinton boarded the USS Fitzgerald, a US Navy destroyer based in California, as she signed a declaration marking 60 years since the United States signed a security treaty with its former colony.

The discovery of bullet holes followed reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday night, although the bullets have not been conclusively connected with that shooting, authorities said. An assault rifle and an abandoned vehicle were found Friday, which led authorities to disclose they had linked Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez to the reported gunfire.
Ortega, 21, was arrested Wednesday afternoon by Pennsylvania authorities at a hotel near Indiana, Pa., the Secret Service said. He was in Pennsylvania State Police custody. A tip from someone who saw and identified Ortega led to his arrest, Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said.

(CNN) -- Former Philippines President Gloria Arroyo was stopped from boarding a plane at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport Tuesday, hours after the country's Supreme Court overruled government-imposed restrictions on her travels.
The Philippines government fears that Arroyo, who is facing allegations of corruption and electoral fraud, will flee if allowed to leave the country.

Darwin and surrounds is a military base already and having some U.S personnel there would not even be noticed .
You might even be happy they are there if this country was threatened.

Watch the last link I posted, China is not knocking on any door they haven't peacefully been for the last ten years!
I will not get roped into your fear mongering for invasion rubbish, we're in business with them.
The only invasions and paranoia over invasion, I see when I look at the news (everywhere) all involves America!
