Tell 'em, Philippines! Tell the bully to piss off.

The Chinese Communist Party: winning hearts and minds since 1921.

The protestors are absolutely right.

Go Philippines!!!

You have the support of so many people in the South China Seas!!

It's time for China to act like a respectable member of the world!!

First off... totally support these people and the Philippines. But... you can bet, if they don't know already, the Chinese will use spies to find out exactly who is behind this protest. Not that the Chinese would target who ever it is, but if these protests continue and grow, they will know who they're dealing with. They will then figure out a way to counter the protests.... something else to change the news cycle.

One of those signs above says "US and China hands off Philippines!"

Now that they have the U.S. protecting their backs, they can act tough?

I predict that, in the not so distant future, the Philippines will have a government that wants to be friends with China, if for no other reason than with America not able to maintain a global military presence or much in the way of imports, not being a BRI country will mean not being part of the global economy.

I especially love the "Foreign troops out of Philippines" sign. Now there's an own goal. lol

OECD still 40% of world gdp, 10% more than investment club BRICS.

You're right, it would be an own goal to demand the small US presence leave the Philippines.

We have an ex chinese co-worker telling us Pinoys(Filipinoes ) that they own the south china sea, South Korea, Taiwan even the Philippines. The entitlement is disgusting.

Taipei is not America, BRICS is bigger than G7, and the BBYB (Black, Brown, Yellow, Beige) alliance is close to eclipsing the G20. And which do you think the majority of Latin America, Africa, and Asia are going to align with?

Yeah, this is confusing.

2 anti-US signs there, but nothing about the protesters being against US troop deployment in the article.

china, try to be kind to the world so I can buy your products again

BRICS again? Nobody is truly allied with China. Several countries are beholden to them. Some are already finding out the truth of what that means.

Taipei is not America,

Yes, this is self-evident, just like Taiwan is not China.

BRICS is bigger than G7, and the BBYB (Black, Brown, Yellow, Beige) alliance is close to eclipsing the G20.

That's great but the OECD is what your rainbow alliance needs to beat.

And which do you think the majority of Latin America, Africa, and Asia are going to align with?

Latin America = US but not officially

Africa = Dictatorship Brigade

Asia (outside ME) = neutral
