It is disappointing to say the least, not much by his insulting remark but his self-limiting course of action which disregards an effective 'weapon' in our arsenal. It is found in the Mutual Defense Treaty.

No less than US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said as much very recently - that the US and the Philippines have an obligation under such treaty to respond accordingly if a vessel belonging to either party, military or civilian is attacked in the West Philippine Sea which according to him is within the area of the Pacific.

As I said in my tweet, I am not praying for World War III, but at least a strong presence of the US Pacific fleet in the WPS can make China feel the balance of power in that area.
