Golez: Those Filipinos who believe or help propagandize that China is not militarizing the South China Sea, please take note of this. China will never be a friend of the Philippines. China will engage us, give us financial assistance but it is not for the love of the Philippines, but in pursuit of its agenda of grabbing 90% of the West Philippine Sea and for full control of the South China Sea. I quote from this article:
TEL AVIV, Israel — Imagery captured Monday from an ImageSat International (ISI) Eros B satellite indicates Chinese preparations for new land-based missile installations on an increasingly strategic island base in the South China Sea.
The high-resolution imagery, shown here for the first time, reveals recent changes in the layout of the People’s Liberation Army’s Yulin Naval Base at the tip of Hainan Island in the disputed Scarborough Shoal. In less than two months, the PLA deployed multiple missile launchers on the western side of the base, deployments that ISI imagery analyst Amit Gur has concluded are anti-ship missiles.
“The direction in which the launchers are facing leads us to believe these are shore-to-ship missiles,” Gur told Defense News.
