Move to guard Filipino fishermen in Scarborough Shoal
So the Philippine Coast Guard is going to protect Filipino fishing vessels.
There are yachts and fishing boats in any given marina in the US that are more heavily armed than your average Philippine Coast Guard ship. It’s a fairly good bet that the PLA(N) is unfrightened, which suggests that these ships are aught more than a tripwire, a means to provoke an incident.
There will be much to watch in the coming weeks.
