It’s time for PH to get warships, missiles - Locsin

Now we are taking some sense for the poor state of our armed forces.
Politicians and activists keeps on criticizing the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and yet when the issue is presented that we increase the budget of our military- all they can do is protest and howl about the government preparing for a revolutionary set up.
Then how can we defend and secure our vast natural resources in terms of the maritime scope of a country that is an archipelago. And the fact that we also have a territorial despite in the West Philippine Sea.

Current Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. last week gave an insight what the country should start to do.
He said the Philippines must begin focusing on national defense and start buying warships and missiles.
He made the statement after a netizen expressed hope that the Philippine Navy would be able to send a boat to the Rim of the Pacific event this year.
“I just hope the Philippine Navy participate in Rim of the Pacific event with a boat this year as I remember back in 2014 where they only sent 2 personnel without even a bangka [boat],” the netizen said in a tweet.
“They should also focus on obtaining medical ships for disaster relief and life-saving operations,” the netizen added.
Locsin in his reply tweet said that the government should start considering focusing on national defense.
“It is time we get warships and missiles. It is time we stop whining about natural disasters and doing something about national defense,” Locsin said.
