World Wide Web news, public opinion around the Huangyan Island struggle to upgrade, will not hurt a hair to the Philippines. The contrary, China is down should weigh the embarrassing situation, because the Chinese to promote economic development and political stability in the South China Sea is unlikely to take military action. “This is the defense experts in the Philippines Art? ? Villa Santa recently wrote a commentary of the Philippine Daily Inquirer “. The basic judgment of the article is: as long as China does not send troops to the Philippines to mobilize international opinion to continue on the Huangyan Island “to discuss the axiom”.
April 30, the Philippine Daily Inquirer website of the defense experts Art? ? Villa Santa commentaries. Villa Santa complex surrounding the situation, and the arduous nature of the economic construction as well as the sensitive period of the change of government, the three major restricting factor for China’s Huangyan Island troops. On the other hand, China sent troops to the South China Sea, does not account for the geographical advantage. By the Philippines’ control of the Kalayaan Islands and over 1000 sea miles away from the naval base in Zhanjiang, China, Chinese warships need two days to arrive, wait for the Fleet of the Chinese navy to do the war prepared, the Philippines and its allies have long open up to the surface.
article analysis is that, if China is to send troops, we must ensure victory, otherwise it will not only lose face in the international, but also provoke a domestic backlash. But for now, China is still not ready to send troops prepared, the main concern is the possibility of U.S. military intervention in the case of winning local wars of the South China Sea, China’s “not sure”. The reason for all kinds of Chinese did not dare to send troops to the South China Sea, the authors suggest that the Philippine government to maintain a high-pitched attitude, fully mobilize the public opinion offensive, the international community together to condemn the behavior of China, so China will naturally shrink “.
Philippine military also bearish on the possibility of Chinese troops in the South China Sea. May 1, the Philippine Defense Ministry spokesman Peter? ? Jiawei Si publicly stated that he noticed many voices argued that China could send troops to the exercise of sovereignty over the South China Sea, but he believes that these statements can not represent the position of the Chinese military. “Do not forget, there are many Chinese people are peace-loving.”
