Scarborough Shoal

Scarborough Shoal or Scarborough Reef (Philippine name: Panatag Shoal, Bajo de Masinloc; Chinese name: Huangyan Island; ), more correctly described as a group of islands and reefs in an atoll shape than a shoal, is located between the Macclesfield Bank(Zhongsha Islands) and Luzon Island of Philippines in the South China Sea.

PH watchful for more China reclamation moves By RG Cruz, ABS-CBN News Posted at 06/13/2014 6:54 PM | Updated as of 06/13/2014 6:54 PM MANILA - A Palace spokesperson on Friday remained mum on reports that China is carrying out land reclamation operations in not just one but a total of five areas in the disputed Spratly Islands. China already has a presence in the Mabini Reef, Calderon Reef, Gaven Reef, Ayungin Shoal, Scarborough Shoal and parts of the Kalayaan Island Group. The Philippine Star, meanwhile, reported about land reclamation activities of China in five areas, namely Johnson South (Mabini) Reef, Cuarteron (Calderon) Reef, Hughes (Kennan) Reef, Gaven (Burgos) Reef and Eldad (Malvar) Reef. Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said she is aware of the reports. She said the reclamation activities are designed to push China's nine-dash line. "That I will have to check with our military. I am aware of the reports. The President did mention, pretty recently, about movements that have been mon ...

Chinese foreign policy: Belligerence is internally motivated | China Picking 3 Fights in 9 Months: Japan, Phils, Vietnam. Robert E Kelly Last week, Brad Glosserman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies made the smart observation that China has recently chosen a surprisingly hard course in its foreign policy. It has lately picked a series of fights with its neighbours which threaten to derail the 'peaceful rise' policy which facilitated so much of its earlier growth. Brad finds this bizarre and wonders whether the new Chinese leadership knows what it is doing, or whether this will lead to more clashes and open balancing against China. Hugh White responded on the Interpreter that this behaviour is a part of China's larger plan to slowly push the US out of the Asian region. China has learned from the Soviet Union: instead of confronting the US directly and provoking a big response, the Chinese are looking for small cracks, like the Senkaku Islands or Scarborough Shoal. These pressure points f ...
Sharing. An armed conflict with China within our lifetime According to Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Antonio Carpio, China’s invasion and occupation of Mischief Reef in 1995, and its unilateral grab of Scarborough Shoal (or Bajo de Masinloc) in 2012, are acts of armed aggression against the Philippines that violate the United Nations Charter. It has taken over Mischief Reef, Mabini Reef, Malvar Reef, Calderon Reef, Gavin Reef and Bajo de Masinloc. China is also blockading the area around Ayungin Shoal with intent to evict the Marines on board the RPS Sierra Madre. All these are within our exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and extended continental shelf (ECS) accorded by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (or UNCLOS) that we refer to as the West PH Sea. We have been trying to bring China to dialogue and resolve the dispute since 1995 when it snatched Mischief Reef away from us. However, China agrees only on the condition that we recognize its “indisputable sovereignty” over the i ...

The South China Sea: What Happens Now? By TREFOR MOSS China and the Philippines are barely on speaking terms after Manila filed an arbitration case under the United Nations Law of the Sea against Beijing’s territorial claims to the Scarborough Shoal. Sino-Vietnamese relations are also extremely tense, with Hanoi seemingly poised to launch its own legal action against China following the deployment of a Chinese oil rig in May to waters east of Vietnam. Whether the security situation in the South China Sea is displaying a temporary cause for concern or is in a lasting tailspin may now depend on how the various countries that claim rights to the energy-rich waters play their hands over the next few months. Here are five key events to keep an eye on. 1. Whether China pulls back its oil rig When China deployed a state-owned oil rig into the waters near Vietnam, it hedged by saying that drilling operations would end on August 15. The deadline enables China to withdraw the rig without appearing to have caved i ...

Yeah. I know the whole story about china disputing scarborough shoal. So irritating :@ - China from ancient times until now always claimed territory, territorial-style language option, despite international law and the rights of its neighbors. However, China has never dared to pursue large measure of respect as giving legal international court. Dr. James Holmes (Naval War College - USA) said: "China has always had the ambition to rewrite international law to serve for his claims. With moves like lowering the drilling platform, China is trying to create a new status quo, implicitly acknowledges pretend this is a normal behavior of Beijing ". He warned: "If the resistance of the smaller countries are not strong enough, the Beijing law will set itself invisible gradually recognized. I do not believe the current international law recognized claims China's sovereignty but Beijing has always created his own ambition an exception areas ".

China is Looting The Philippines; Probably With The Assistance of Corrupt Philippine Officials Is Zambales province still Philippine territory, or now China’s? Zambaleños ask that, because local officials are giving away their natural resources to East Asia’s neighborhood bully. By Jarius Bondoc (The Philippine Star) | October 30, 2013 In Barangay Maloma, San Felipe town, thrives black-sand mining by Chinese. They destroyed the fields and mountains to build a seaport big enough to accommodate their poacher vessels. While berthed the ships siphon the black sand into the hold with huge hoses, then sail away. No taxes or royalties are paid — only bribes to the very officials tasked to keep them out. In China magnetite is separated from the sand, for use in steel and telecoms products. That includes weapons and surveillance systems. China deploys such materiél to invade Bajo de Masinloc (Scarborough Shoal), 123 miles from Zambales’ shore. Same with the unabated nickel mining in Masinloc and Sta. Cr ...

The alleged strategy is to contain the hostilities within the disputed Spratly archipelago, at the eastern edge of which are Pag-asa and eight other Philippine islets and shoals. The nine sea formations comprise the municipality of Kalayaan, Palawan. More than 250 civilians permanently reside in the biggest, Pag-asa, under a mayor and a town council. Most are fishermen, seafood traders, and goatherds. An undisclosed number of Philippine Marines hold base. Pag-asa has its own waterworks, sun- and diesel-powered electric plant, cell phone site, seaport, airstrip, town hall, schoolhouses, and chapels. China has been lusting for Pag-asa for decades.

China’s Advance Spurs Indonesian Military Shift: Southeast Asia China’s intensifying move to assert claims over the South China Sea has given fresh impetus to a military buildup in Indonesia that will see its forces deployed with greater focus on external risks. After years of concentrating on separatist threats across an archipelago long enough to stretch from New York to Alaska, Indonesia plans to deploy attack helicopters to its islands at the southern end of the South China Sea and expand its naval power. The front-runner for July’s presidential election, Joko Widodo, aims to boost defense spending to 1.5 percent as a share of the economy, which is Southeast Asia’s largest. The strategy shift comes as China escalates disputes with the Philippines and Vietnam, fellow members of the Association of Southeast Asean Nations. China’s standoff with Vietnam over an oil rig this month followed its 2012 success in taking control of the Scarborough Shoal from the Philippines. “The focus in defense sp ...

Vietnam Urged to Ally with Other Countries to Protect Sovereignty by Vu Quoc Ngu May 23, 2014 Vietnam should team up with other countries, especially in defense in order to enhance the country’s defense capacity to protect the country’s sovereignty as China has showed its expansionism, said a local observer. Vietnam says it will not participate in military groups and will not allow foreign countries establishing military bases in its territory, and will not partner with one country against the third nation. This policy seems to be not effective, said Tran Nghia Son in his article posted in Giao Duc Viet Nam online website. Since early May, China has deploying HD-981 oilrig and an escorted flotilla of tens of ships, including missile and frigates and armed surveillance vessels in Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone, just 120 nautical miles from the Vietnamese central coast. The Chinese has no plan to withdraw its oilrig and ships despite strong protests from Vietnam. The case shows that if Vietnam stan ...
South China Sea - Vietnam mulls legal action against China... Vietnam threatens legal action against China By JIM GOMEZ May. 21, 2014 MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Vietnam's prime minister said Thursday that his country was considering legal action against China, which deployed an oil rig earlier this month to disputed waters, prompting anti-Chinese riots in Vietnam and a tense standoff between ships from both countries in the area. In a written reply to questions sent by The Associated Press, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said Vietnam would fiercely defend its territory but would never resort to military action "unless we are forced to take self-defense actions." "Like all countries, Vietnam is considering various defense options, including legal actions in accordance with the international law," said Dung, who held talks with his Philippine counterpart in Manila that focused on their territorial rifts with China. Dung did not specify what legal action Hanoi was considering. Last year, the Philippines fi ...

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – USS Chicago (SSN 721), a Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine, arrived here on Friday for a routine port call that highlights the strong historic, community, and military connections between the United States and the Republic of the Philippines. The US Embassy in Manila said in a statement that the visit will allow the submarine to replenish supplies as well as give the crew an opportunity for rest and relaxation. The USS Chicago is part of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and is homeported in Guam.The Chicago is commanded by Cmdr. Lance Thompson and crewed by approximately 135 sailors. Measuring more than 360 feet long and weighing more than 7,000 tons when submerged, Chicago is capable of supporting a multitude of missions including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.

Column One: Life under the Obama Doctrine For most commentators, President Barack Obama’s biggest achievement in his four-nation tour of Asia was the enhanced defense treaty he signed with Philippine President Benigno Aquino. The pact permits US forces to operate on Philippine military bases and sets the conditions for joint training of US and Philippine forces, among other things. There are two problems with the treaty, however. And they reflect the basic problem with US foreign policy generally, five-and-a-half years into the Obama presidency. First, there is the reason that the treaty became necessary. The Philippines has been under attack by China since 2012 when China seized the Scarborough Shoal from the Philippines. Despite its mutual defense treaty with Manila, Washington did nothing. This non-response emboldened China still further. And today China is threatening the Second Thomas Shoal, another Philippine possession. So, too, late last year China extended its Air Defense Identification Zone to ...
Bayan Muna Rep.

i hope other country like pakistan will help our country Philippines to solve the problem between China and the Philippines fighting for two Islands that not belong to the.Spratly Island and Scarborough Shoal Island is belong to the Philippines not in China.China is not following the national law.
The enemies of the Filipinos are NOT the Chinese, nor the Americans. The real enemies of the Filipinos are other Filipinos! - those who plunder our own funds and riches - making us incapable of creating a strong military defense of our own. Many of us keep on talking against the Chinese for being bully, some keeps on accusing the Americans for having a hidden interest on the oil deposits deep within the Scarborough Shoal. C'mon people, the real enemies are within our territory! (Translation) Ang kaaway ng mga Pilipino ay hindi ang Intsik, ni hindi ang Amerikano Ang tunay na mga kaaway ng mga Pilipino ay ibang Pilipino! - Iyong mga nagnanakaw ng sarili nating puhunan at kayamanan - at lumulumpo sa atin para makapagtayo ng malakas na pansariling hukbong pandigma. Marami sa atin ang nagsasalita laban sa Intsik sa kanilang panunupil, ang iba naman ay madalas pinaparatangan ang mga Amerikano sa pagkakaroon ng nakakubling pagnanais sa nakatagong langis sa ilalim ng Bajo de Masinloc/Kababawan ng Panatag.

PerryScope By Perry Diaz Twenty-eight years after the EDSA people power revolution and 23 years after the Philippine Senate kicked the U.S. bases out of the Philippines, the Americans are back at the request of the Philippine government.   Why? The toppling of the Marcos dictatorship in 1986 whipped up nationalistic fervor among the new intelligentsia who saw an opportunity to create a society free of foreign influence and interference.  It was a period of unbridled nationalism that blamed the malaise of the past on America’s perceived meddling in the Philippines’ national affairs.  It did not then come as a surprise that the 1987 Constitution was crafted to prohibit foreign military bases on Philippine soil.  Article XVIII, Section 25, of the new constitution states that “foreign military bases, troops, or facilities shall not be allowed in the Philippines except under a treaty duly concurred in by the Senate and, when the Congress so requires, ratified by a majority of the votes cast by the p ...
Disputes in Asia over the Scarborough Shoal. I bet the real reason they want it is the fair. Let's be real: who wouldn't?
The New York Times On a Trip That Avoids Beijing, Obama Keeps His Eye on China By MARK LANDLER APRIL 26, 2014 KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — On every stop of his Asian journey in the past week, President Obama has spoken to two audiences: America’s allies and China. The balancing act has become even trickier because of the sharp deterioration in America’s relations with Russia. Perhaps no country has more to gain from a new Cold War than China, which has historically benefited from periods of conflict between the United States and Russia and, analysts say, could exploit these latest tensions to lean even harder on its neighbors in the region. As Mr. Obama has traveled from Japan to South Korea and, now, Malaysia, he has delivered a carefully calibrated message to reassure America’s friends of its support while discouraging the Chinese from any thoughts of opening a second front on the Pacific Rim. In Tokyo on Thursday, Mr. Obama vowed to defend Japan in a territorial dispute with China, but urged the .. ...
Another attempt on the Scarborough Shoal? NEVER!. Another battle against the Chinese tomorrow. I hope we can win! :)

5 Where the U.S. Will Look to Gain a Footing The used to be a central hub for U.S. military operations in the Asia-Pacific, and the country looks set to fulfill that role once more – albeit on a smaller scale – as the two countries reboot their long-standing alliance. U.S. President Barack Obama and his Philippine counterpart Benigno Aquino III are expected to sign a new security pact – the Agreement on Enhanced Defense Cooperation – in Manila on Monday. The deal paves the way for U.S. forces to return to bases which, in some cases, they ran for decades before the Philippines ordered all American troops to leave the country in the early 1990s. Though the Americans were never unpopular here, Philippine society at the time simply saw no justification for their continued presence, given the lack of any credible external threat. The two sides remain tight-lipped about where the U.S. plans to deploy its forces and in what numbers. But since the deal’s purpose is to boost the Philippines’ deterrent ...
PHILIPPINE REVOLUTION FOR FREEDOM, TRUE PROSPERITY AND DELIVERANCE FROM GOD ALMIGHTY LORD JESUS CHRIST IN HEAVEN, FOR CHRISTIAN PHILIPPINES. AMEN.

Amen. This is a report for my people, of the Philippines, my beloved fellow Filipinos, my beloved in Christ fellow-Christians, Catholics, Muslims etc. Behold blessing, liberty, peace, and righteous prosperous life in store for you, of my Lord Jesus Christ: GOD-given blessing, prosperity, and GREAT BUDGET for defence, and for DELIVERANCE, and for lasting PEACE and PROSPERITY for us all, Filipinos!

Obama in the Philippines! MANILA, Philippines (AP) — President Barack Obama said a 10-year agreement signed Monday to give the U.S military greater access to Philippine bases will help promote regional security, improve armed forces training and shorten response times to humanitarian crises, including natural disasters. The deal signed as Obama arrived in the Philippines to end a weeklong, four-nation Asia tour on something of a high note. Concerns about the U.S role military role here led to recent clashes outside the U.S. Embassy in the capital of Manila between police and more than 100 left-wing activists who protested Obama's visit and the new security arrangement. Activists say the agreement reverses democratic gains achieved when huge U.S. military bases were shut down in the early 1990s, ending nearly a century of American military presence in the Philippines, a sensitive issue in this former U.S. colony. Obama sought to allay those concerns, saying in an interview that the deal is not about U.S. ...
I don't understand the thinking of some FILIPINOS. When the American bases were abrogated or cancelled out, thousands of people lost their jobs. Fr many years our sugar industry depended on the u,s. sugar quota. When the chinese s bullied our fisherman for fishing on the the panatag or Scarborough shoals, what did these guys who profess to have so much idealism by burinng American flags did? NOTHING, BUT ONLY BLAH BLAH AND BLAH. SO WITH SOME OTHER FILIPINOS WHO CLAIMED TO BE SUCH AN EXPERTS ON FOREIGN RELATIONS AND OTHER MATTERS.
I am not against rallies of citizens regarding pres obama's visit..but lets look at the good side.. -when tacloban and other parts of the phils were disastereD by floods, who helped filipinos the most? -on philipPine's struggle on scarborough shoal, arent we be needing their strong force? ...we humans tend to complain abruptly and get contaminated with other's mad emotions.. We have our own thinking. Use it wisely. ..just saying! Gud am.. :)
Who defends RP from US? (Herman Tiu Laurel / DieHard III / The Daily Tribune / 04-28-2014 MON) Barack Obama arrives to firm up his country’s purported commitment to “defend” the Philippines from China. But who defends the Philippines from the US--the imperial power that grabbed the Filipinos’ victory over long-time colonizer Spain; the one that launched the Philippine-American War of 1899-1902 and killed up to a million Filipinos? Half-a-century of US colonialism suppressed what should have been the first modern democracy and economy in Southeast Asia. Then, World War II saw the US use Filipino soldiers and civilians as cannon fodder, before it subjected the country to post-war neocolonial exploitation with parity rights and US military bases for its wars in Asia. To this day, the US continues to suppress the country’s industrial aspirations while it ruthlessly conducts massive wealth extraction through debt, taxes, and privatization-price gouging of public services. Obama’s offer of protect . ...
this concerns the Spratleys and has nothing to do with Scarborough Shoal
Scarborough Shoal incident took place in April 2012. What calendar are you using?
it wasn't in service then. Scarborough Shoal incident was June 2011, Gregorio del Pilar was commissioned in December that year.
Is anyone gonna ask Obama about the Scarborough Shoal dispute? Is the US supporting Japan or the Philippines?
