India should join with the Philippines, USA, Australia, Japan for the Balikatan war games exercise. It may anger more China.
They have at least a thing called self respect
Ph would welcome india with open arms if india applies to join balikatan exercise
Would not legal to join in Balikatan. Will have to be conducted under another exercise framework. Balikatan exclusively US-PH under exsting Mutual Defense Treaty.
India & Russia are not friends, Russia has been taking India for a ride for the last 75 years, that is why India has not really moved forward and stayed backward. Mingling with the wrong lot.
Exactly we have been supporting russia since 60s.......
It's time for our government to realise the truth...
As an American, can someone from India please explain why we are not great allies? We both oppose Chinese expansionism, both want peace in the region, both oppose radical Islam from Pakistan and Afghanistan, and both have spent centuries under British imperialism. We should be best buddies by now
PRACTICE HARD FIGHT HARDER
Shoulder to shoulder means the US and the Philippines need each other

Great Exercise.. we like it..
God bless USA & the Philippines!!
The USA has an incredible military and I’m proud to be American
then why fled from Afghanistan?
As filipinons ,,we are peaceful fun living citizen .we been long business partner with Chinese and most Filipinos are mix blood Chinese but we are also by history allied with Americans so may World remain lives in harmony for 3 of us...let nxt generation remain humane and peaceful
China can only watch in awe from the sidelines, they were observing these exercises
We Need more american presence in our beloved country ,we would love them to stay with us forever
Of course they're irked, but a balance of power is necessary in the pacific
No more bullying on the Filipino fishermen . The presence of American forces will give peace and stability in WPS
If only China didn’t bully filipinos they wouldn’t be worrying about this. But unfortunately, even after many talks nothing changed , instead they’re getting aggressive . So, of course to protect itself they had to ask the US for help.
Philippines only wants to protect itself and others. No more no less. Asian nations must realize that if philippines fall. You guys are next on the line.
filipino army are battle tested since world war 2 ..korean war..and marawi war.. + combine US army.
Come on, stop playing around and get straight to the point. Let's go America! Let's bring out the secret weapon and show the world who's the boss.
Paris London branch.....
I can't wait for NATO to free Kashmir ASAP my friend updates
Why is this occurring? Is China conducting similar exercises off the coast of California?
As a person living in 3rd world country, I get triggered when hearing this news.
I automatically think of "colonization" as the form of engagement back then...
Philippines was also suffering from these western humans, forgot what they did ...then they called it close ally...
Philippine US conflict where the U$ kxxlled every boy over the age of 13 across several islands
US going to colonize Philippine 2nd time.
