The Philippines does not matter either. While bellicose Biden Administration shouting from Washington DC annoys the world, The Republic of China (a.k.a.: Taiwan) joined the list of the antagonized. The Philippines still doesn’t get it. A leak reveals the USA plans to destroy all of Taiwan’s microchip foundries to prevent China from getting them. U.S. missiles fired from the Philippines, a 199-second flight, may turn Taiwan’s silicon treasure into rubble.
The best words to describe the reaction of Taiwan’s senior defence politician Mr. Chiu Kuo-cheng to this leak from a U.S. politician, would be street vernacular.
About Taiwan’s microchip factories, Robert O’Brien, once a national security advisor to Donald Trump, has been saying to anyone who will listen that, “America and its allies (incl. the Philippines) are never going to let those factories fall into Chinese hands.”
Taiwan politician Chiu Kuo-cheng is furious according to Taiwan News. He said, “if they want to bomb this or that”, and cryptically, “the Armed Forces of Taiwan will fight the Americans off [paraphrased]”.

“Taiwan and Philippines think they matter. No. This war is about sending China back to poverty and the dark ages, or America is a dead, broke, has-been with nukes. Taiwan and the Philippines can be wasteland for all America cares now. That’s why Civil Society is warning women and children in the Philippines to get out,” explains a defence and foreign affairs expert in Tel Aviv.
Another burning match had been set to the gasoline when U.S. Congressman Seth Moulton proclaimed that the U.S. should warn China that it would “blow up” Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) et al if China were to take over and occupy Taiwan.
Member of the European Parliament Mick Wallace commented, “As a famous U.S. Diplomat [Henry Kissinger] said many years ago: ‘The US doesn’t have any enemies or friends, only interests.’ How long will it take Taiwan to realize that the U.S. couldn’t give a damn about them, they’re just a pawn in the U.S. Geopolitical game to undermine the growth of China.“
Two American-occupied military bases in Cagayan province of the Philippines facing Taiwan are exacerbating the China-USA-Taiwan conflict from Philippines soil. Taiwan needs to worry. The Philippines is just a stooge and has no friends in this.
According to unofficial military sources in China within the people’s army, exercise planning is underway to prepare for a siege of northern Luzon island in the Philippines. FPM.news has not been able to independently confirm that information, but the sources have been reliable in the past.
Taiwan already has said it is ready to retaliate if any effort is made from the Philippines to do area denial strikes on its silicon microchip factories and foundries.
“What everyone is missing in this South China Sea madness is that Taiwan will not upset the status quo with China and that half the country favours unity with mainland China. Taiwan buys weapons and goods from America because that’s what Taiwan’s massive customer America is selling, but Taiwan has America by the short hairs because it rakes in a disproportionate fortune from America, selling the U.S. its exclusive microchips. America has positioned Taiwan as much of an enemy to America as it has made of China. Americans are blowhards and never think well in a strategic context. The Manila government is just plain stupid and greedy. What has happened in the Philippines with the Americans occupying the country with their military will kill the country. Philippines is a good place to leave right now.” said Israeli security analyst Simon Baldock.
The locations are, the Cagayan North International Airport in Lal-lo and the Naval Base Camilo Osias in Santa Ana town, both of Cagayan province.
The United States armed forces are currently occupying many Philippines military bases and the USA has again taken control of Subic Bay, Philippines, America’s former largest naval base outside of the USA.

The Philippines, has complained of late about China-flagged civilian vessels and China coastal law enforcement vessels making “dangerous manoeuvres” and “aggressive tactics” when Philippines naval and coast guard vessels have tried to force their way into island regions claimed by China.
On July 12, 2016, the ‘law of the sea’ arbitral tribunal wherein China was not present therefore ex parti adjudication of a Philippines’ 2013 case against China in the South Asian Sea took place. The case alleged the absent China violated the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The tribunal which has no effect, ruled that major elements of China’s claim to the South Asian Sea—including its theoretical nine-dash line; recent militarization activities; and other malevolent activities in other nations’ coastal waters—were unlawful. China reacted angrily to the Court’s ex parti ruling.

Evacuating of Philippines women and children urged before war breaks out and to avoid American violence toward Philippines Women and Girls, as was the experience in the past, occurring again.
Several Civil Society humanitarian groups are urging that Women in the Philippines move their families from the Philippines as soon as they are able because of the pending war and the violence American occupation brings to women and children.
Conditions in the Philippines are so fragile that any negative disturbance will increase the 17% food insecurity and life-threatening starvation. Meanwhile many safe nations are seeking laborers both skilled and unskilled and offer citizenship after a few years. Hunger in the Philippines has not changed much in the past thirty years except growing worse in the past three years and more so recently.
