Kwanstainia Lost The Philippines!!!
Barry Soetro wanted to rack up one more win before he left office.
How do you "lose" the Philippines? Is that actually a thing?
Entered the regional alliance with China. Evacuation/Expulsion of U.S. Bases is virtually a done deal. There goes part of the Pacific "Maginot Line" for WW3.
Good job, Barack. Another one for the legacy library. The President who lost the Philippines.
Erosion of the 1951 Mutual Defense Treaty has been considered part of the cascade leading to World War III for sixty years. It has featured in science fiction and fantasy scenarios with the Philippines either getting annexed by China or willingly joining them. I read a description of this scenario by Herman Kahn in the 70's in some news magazine and never forgot it.
Eerie feeling of Deja Vu today when I saw this ... except it is like a memory of something that hasn't happened yet.
The Asian nations are simply starting to act in their own self interest. You can't blame them. Like most empires, the United States has self-destructed and the leaders of these countries can see it. They are increasingly concluding that they are backing a losing horse and need to join the umbrella of the Chinese in order to have any real security.
