The Philippine-China conflict over ownership of the Spratlys has reached a critical point warns international analysts as Beijing raised a protest against the Philippine Navy's massive buildup. According to Beijing, satellite imagery taken in early April of 2012 showed strong evidence of a naval base in the island of Calituban, Talibon, Bohol. The images showed several harbors and about a dozen entrances to what observers say were underground submarine bases. The island itself is camouflaged with a shanty town but sophisticated satellite reconnaissance imagery captured the hidden facilities.
China says it will not allow the Philippines to continue this military buildup and they will not hesitate to attach the Philippines in the next few weeks if the Philippine Navy continues its plans.
Philippine President Noynoy Aquino has been secretly visiting the area for the past months raising speculations this buildup is a top priority of his regime.
North Korea recently accused the Philippines of electronic sabotage that led to the launch failure of North Korea's rocket test last Friday. Pyongyang claims Philippine IT experts hidden deep in underground chambers in Malacanang and sofware experts in Cebu City successfully sabotaged the navigational unit of the rocket last Friday causing it to spiral down in less than two minutes after launch.
President Aquino has instructed Philippine Intelligence Agencies to double its efforts on monitoring aliens possibly disguised as Korean students as these might be Chinese and/or North Korean saboteurs. We must protect our resources, specifically the Philippines' IT professionals, says President Aquino.
