Over a 3 year period up to 2019, the government should establish an air defense system at the WesPhilSea with a 2 squadron 38 fighters 70 billion php acquisition budget 23 billion per year earmarking at the very least.
A squadron at northern palawan to cover and guard our northwest waters, a squadron at southern palawan to patrol our southwest and sulu sea waters and the immediate upgrade of the kalayaan island airstrip and construction of a seaport for our naval assets and allied warships anchor, would be a credible defense posture that china will respect.
All should now wake up to imagine and see the truth that the SPRATLYS, BENHAM RISE OR PHILIPPINE RISE AND SABAH are ours to defend, protect and uphold. TAIWAN IS A LESSON.
