Golez: THE PHILIPPINES MUST PROTEST AND NOT REMAIN SILENT.
The pictures of the three biggest artificial islands, namely Fiery Cross Reef, Mischief Reef and Subi Reef, depicted in 3D form what have been earlier shown in bird's eye view (top view).
These pictures confirm the militarization of the three artificial islands and should be a ground for filing of a diplomatic protest of the violation of President Xi's as assurance last year that the artificial islands would not be militarized.
Very worrisome is the presence of three military transport ships especially #989 which can carry 500-800 troops, several dozen military vehicles and three Z-8 helicopters that can carry 27 troops. They are designed for rapid deployment and amphibious assault of islands like Pag-Asa.
Subi is only 12 miles from Pagasa and thus a big threat to our Kalayaan Island Group.
Mischief Reef is inside our EEZ and thus a continuing violation of our EEZ. It is a threat to Palawan being only 130 miles away. A fighter jet deployed there can reach Palawan in around 15 minutes.
