Well, here it comes, sorta-kinda-like-maybe. ASEAN is trying to forge a unified military presence against the Chinese concerning their island claims
in the South China/West Phillippine Sea(s).
Armed forces chief of staff General Emmanuel Bautista said the new acquisitions would come under the fresh U.S. military assistance plan announced
last month by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry when he visited the Philippines.
China began widening its territorial claims about five years ago to include nearly all of the seas dividing Southeast Asian countries and their
northern neighbor. The claims defy international standards and maritime law, and Beijing refuses to have the dispute heard before an international
Its attitude has angered Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines, but the four countries have struggled to forge a united front within the
10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) when dealing with Beijing over the issue.
Adding to recent tensions was Liu Yazhou, political commissar at the People’s Liberation Army National Defense University, who said in a magazine
interview that the Chinese military could match the U.S. by “seizing opportunities.”
“An army that fails to achieve victory is nothing,” Liu was quoted as saying by a defense magazine “Those borders where our army has won
victories are more peaceful and stable, but those where we were too timid have more disputes.”
That type of language again irritated its neighbors.
I see this more as a unification ploy for political gain rather than military gain. All of the "little" countries have to get together to force an
easily and permanently bondable unit for the future zoning requirements of the NWO, something like the EU and what is happening in North America,
South America and Africa. It seems a means to an end, China does not want to destroy its markets or its support system for cheap goods or risk an all
out go-for-broke war scenario which could involve nukes. So what do they do for the NWO handlers, set up a sting that will force a union of sovereign
nations probably without firing a shot, because of their big-bad imperialistic fantasies.
Like an unopened grave, remains to be seen what happens next.
