July 3, 2014 (LPAC)–Within days of the Japanese cabinet voting to accept a reinterpretation of Japan’s constitution in favor of exercising the “right of collective self-defense,” a new set of openly anti-China alliances is springing into being in East Asia, with the Obama-clone “NoyNoy” Aquino, President of the Philippines, at the center.
The Philippines is looking into a more comprehensive defense pact with Japan that will allow Manila to seek Tokyo’s aid in the event of an attack, which could clearly be used to spark Obama’s intended war with China. Philippines spokesman Edwin Lacierda, when asked whether the Philippines would ask for Japan’s help should its forces come under attack, told reporters yesterday that “we are looking into those arrangements.”
“Clearly, our belief is that Japan, by revisiting its Constitution, enables it to meet its international obligations, that is — in the case of the South China Sea — to promote and to ensure peace and stability in the region,” Lacierda said.
University of the Philippines international studies professor Amado Mendoza Jr. commented that “Japan will commit to the defense of sea lanes. They have blue-water capability. They have air power. I see a situation where they have convoys patrolling the South China Sea with the Philippine Navy.”
Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario, working another aspect of the plot, visited Vietnam on Wednesday to work at dragging Vietnam into the Obama anti-China alliance. He met with Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh in Hanoi. “The two ministers discussed a wide range of issues and agreed to further promote cooperation in many areas such as fisheries, ocean and maritime defense and security, trade and investment,” a Philippines Foreign Affairs statement said. The two officials agreed to establish a joint commission “to formulate a road map in working towards a strategic partnership.”
