According to the Philippines side of the story, a Philippine warship was patrolling the Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal and came across eight Chinese fishing vessels anchored inside a lagoon.

ETA: or from Eagle Speak South China Sea: China and the Philippines Tussle Over Scarborough Shoal

Two Chinese ships have blocked a Philippine naval ship from arresting Chinese fisherman for fishing in waters that the Philippines considers to be within its "exclusive economic zone." China has ordered the Philippine naval ship to leave, insisting that it has sovereignty of the area, while the Philippines refutes this.

ES has good map too.

"Scarborough Shoal, a small group of rocky formations"

Named after Joe's cratered arse no doubt!   ::laughonfloor::

ChiCom's think anything within 1,000 nautical miles to be their territory...wonder if this will lead to a request by the Philipines to enter into more joint operations with US Navy in the area.

Silly ChiCom's!

Although the Chinese fishing boats have been permitted to leave the lagoon where they had been held by a Philippine warship, the confrontation with Chinese military vessels has raised nationalistic anger on both sides. (See "12-Apr-12 World View -- Philippines and China in nationalistic confrontation in South China Sea.") The fishing vessels were detained near the Scarborough Shoal (called Huangyan Island by the Chinese), off the coast of Manila. The island has historically been part of the Philippines, but China is demanding sovereignty over it and all the islands in a huge region in the South China Sea. On Friday, China's Foreign Ministry said: ...

Well, if we had a POTUS worth a damn we'd be coordinating with not just the Phillipines but every other Asiatic nation wanting to stop aggression in the region from spilling into their territory and push the ChiCom's back.  But since all we have is an ass-kissing socialist punk loser...we can forget that idea.  The Phillipines are screwed.

By DJ Yap
Philippine Daily Inquirer

On the 12th day of a standoff at Panatag Shoal, Maj. Emmanuel Garcia said China had no reason to feel concerned about the annual Balikatan (shoulder-to-shoulder) exercises that started a week ago.
...
The Balikatan has long been planned, and its purpose is interoperability between US and Philippine troops and exchange of ideas,” Garcia said on dzBB.

If the Chinese were concerned they would have been on the horn to Bambi and he would have cancelled the joint maneuvers. But don't you guys get your hopes up about those F-16's you want to buy.  Even though the USS Blue Ridge of the U.S. 7th Fleet paid a courtesy call to the Manilla South Harbor Bambi's not going to sell them to you.  His minders won't allow it.

Most of our "exercises" with the Philippines (since our basing rights leases lapsed by Philippine choice) are of a small scale variety.  The long years of US presence in the region (Subic naval base & Clark airfield especially) made it easy for America's detractors (usually of a leftist bent, surprise, surprise!) to agitate for a removal of foreign interlopers.  A sad turn for a once stalwart American ally.  We remain on friendly terms, but I always had serious doubts of the Philippines being able to "go it alone" alone.

Telegraph UK - Reporting that Chinese media reported the
Scarborough Island as its territory.  It was then reported as an error,
leading to commentary such as "This anchor woman is great, a good patriot, she has announced to the world the Philippines belongs to China," .

However, 'Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying said late Monday Beijing was ready for "any escalation" of the maritime standoff with the Philippines'.

Resources.  Didn't another Asian power get obliterated over similar expansionist desires 70 years ago?

Yes, but that was when an even stronger Pacific power actually had the balls to do the obliterating.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

Interesting little tidbits about the spy-war going on with the Chi-Com's.  Nice to see the opposition is trying to keep tabs on these clowns and keep them off balance.

They aching for a fight, but are loath to take on anyone sporting anything that can hurt them.  Eventually that will change.

Good, now if we can restore sanity on our side, an India gambit could put the Chi-com's in a vise...

Oh well, it was a good idea anyway...

China's going to push it as far as they can.

AFP - Japan summoned the Chinese ambassador Wednesday as a diplomatic row flared up after three Chinese patrol boats approached a chain of islands at the centre of a bitter territorial dispute.

The Japanese coastguard said three Chinese patrol boats had once again approached a chain of islands at the centre of a bitter territorial dispute Wednesday in a move that could inflame tensions.

Picking on the Phillipines and other small nations like that is one thing, trying to bully Japan is not going to go over well, and any regional instability built there will only add to that created in the smaller nations and China could soon find itself surrounded by angry neighbors.

Well, like I said, only if a sane person was in charge of our foreign policy, as it is the Chi-Com's feel justifiably free to pick on all these nations.
