WORLD WAR III
« on: February 23, 2016, 02:23:16 PM »
This morning the internet community was flooded with news/posts that world war 3 has began. As i see it, Syria is just the fall guy. Every tom dick and harry is rushing to have a control of this commodity: OIL
The diminishing oil reserve in the middle east, which may lasts for up to 50 years from now, can ignite a world war.

In a similar scenario, the Philippines, which according to a recent study, has the biggest natural gas reserve in the world, might be targeted also. Not to mention the its "world's 70% gold reserve". While other countries are busy in the middle east, a blitzkrieg attack to the Philippines from the neighboring countries is not impossible. History repeats itself. :-[

yes. Military and political. I just dont know their "man" on the coming election.
Even in the international arena, China is somebody to watch. I dont know how the Philippines could avoid an attack coming from a superpower. Maybe, the Philippines could play a "David" against a Goliath.

Kaloy,
       When World War I and World War II started there was tumult in every nation. Military are taking over another country by force or a country may just open it so no fighting and destruction happens. Ain't happening yet, most are only provocations..though China is bullying us..World war means a lot of country is already fighting and defending bluntly with military arms. In Asia, you can still go to other places like Macau and bet for dog races... kind of...Goldfinder ('wag magpanic)

Need not worry - i think the US and Japan are here to protect the country and the treasures (and then retrieve it discretely and gradually) ;D

Phl, Japan, US hold talks to enhance defense cooperation

Philippine Star
9 March 2016


The Philippines, Japan and the US have conducted talks aboard the USS Blue Ridge, the US 7th Fleet command and control ship, which docked at the Manila South Harbor three days ago.

In a statement released on Monday night, the 7th Fleet Public Affairs Office said the meeting was aimed at hastening cooperation among the three countries to ensure peace and stability in the West Philippine Sea.

“The peace and stability in this region depends on the unified efforts of our countries,” 7th Fleet commander Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin was quoted as saying to his Filipino and Japanese counterparts during the talks.

“This is a tangible example of the unified commitment of our countries to the stability and security of this region,” Aucoin said during a reception following the trilateral conference.

Military leaders from each country expressed concerns about the tension in the South China Sea as well as the impact of natural and man-made disasters on operations.

They discussed ways to collectively promote peace and stability in the Indo-Asia Pacific.

“Discussions focused on lessons learned from past cooperative training efforts with an eye toward maximizing future opportunities, which included expanding the scope and complexity of multilateral engagements, exercises, and humanitarian and disaster response efforts that will allow countries to rapidly respond to a crisis.”

The Armed Forces of the Philippines downplayed the trilateral meeting, describing it as routine.

“They are constantly talking,” AFP spokesman Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla said.

The Blue Ridge (LCC-19), flagship of the US 7th Fleet and one of only two such ships in the inventory of the US Navy, docked at Manila Bay on March 4 for a port call.

The visit came as the US John C. Stennis Strike Group (JCSSG), was patrolling in the South China Sea.

The JCSSG armada that included three destroyers and a cruiser ended its South China Sea freedom of navigation operations two days ago.

On March 2, Japanese minesweeper Division 51 also docked at South Harbor for a three-day goodwill visit. It was followed by the signing of the defense cooperation between Japan and the Philippines.

The minesweeper, led by Capt. Toshiro Takaiwa, is composed of two ships - Uraga (Minesweeper Tender 463) and JS Takashima (Minesweeper Tender 603).

Meanwhile, the Stennis strike group has wrapped up its six-day operations in the South China Sea and transited into the Philippine Sea through the Luzon strait.

The strike group said the People’s Liberation Army (Navy) ships remained around Stennis, but all “bridge-to-bridge interactions between the sailors of both navies remained professional.”

“Based on the communications of USS Chung-Hoon had with the PLA(N) ships, the Chinese Navy prides itself with professional communications and interactions,” Chung-Hoon commanding officer Tom Ogden said.

Chung-Hoon was one of two destroyers in the service of the Stennis strike group.

Rear Admiral Ronald Boxall, the strike group’s commander, said he was not surprised by the interest of other countries in the strike group.

“We’re exercising our right to operate in international waters. Our presence here promotes peace and stability in the region,” Boxall said. – Jaime Laude

We have an advantage since we did not invest much in military spending before so can start a "hitech" system - LASER, RAILGUNS, DRONES (lots of it) and maybe a few WMD at Spratley islands (facing China).  If Congress will agree, we can have US develop a few of these islands will a little rent and in exchange for building up our defense system.  We can later use drones in the conflict with Abu Sayyaf and leftists - cheap but effective.  Our govt.  can save the 1 trillion pesos pocketed by politicians EVERY YEAR.  BUT YOU KNOW WHY WE CAN'T DO IT???? BECAUSE OUR POLITICIANS ARE ONLY THINKING OF ENRICHING THEIR POCKETS and GIVING PROMISES THEY CAN'T FULFILL JUST TO WIN THE ELECTION!!!!!   THAT'S WHY OUR COUNTRY NEEDS DUTERTE.  All these things and more will become possible if he becomes president.

The only interest the USA and Japland have in the PH is to further plunder and screw it over.  Always conduct your wars on someone else's land (country) and never on your own land (country).

The USN is the global transport company for large gold deposits or accumulations including transport for 3rd parties and or governments.  United States Navy, Office of Naval Intelligence.  Gay Aquino executed a delayed action agreement with USA and Japland for exclusive hunting and recovery rights in the PH.  Goes into effect in June 2016, conveniently after he leaves office and is no longer accountable.  An executive action that would have to be reversed and that is very difficult in the PH.  Look at the corrupt court rulings now on Poe, after a lot of money.

I married a filipino so don't diss me about gringo vs Filipino issue.  BUT there will never be a "hitech" military structure in the PH.  Look at all the kick backs and bribes plus circus in Manila just over the contracts to rebuild to serviceable condition the surplus Vietnam war choppers.  Look at the corruption in the contracts to purchase side arms for the national police and even to the contracts to purchase armored vests.  That went on for something like 2 years.  Big drama in the news.  Duterte is very corrupt, he and his partner Jovi run the most expensive stable of call girls in Davao City.  Every night lined up in rows at the Seda.  No competition in that city.  Nothing goes into or out of the new airport or port facility without a shake of the hand.  Recently he facilitated the shipping of 38 metric tons out of Davao to the Subic Bay port facility, stashed in a series of shipping containers.  But when it got to Subic, someone smelled a rat and now, as of January, they have to keep playing a shell game moving around the containers in Subic because there are people looking for the containers.  It's stuck in Subic.  Things never change, all the politicals need money for the elections.

Does this mean that we have only Binay and Santiago? Its seems that Duterte is also a puppet(either Malaysia/ China), he is supporting ( the very obscure) BBL and plans to give the Chinese squatted Island to the Chinese.  When I learn about this one with Duterte I am very disappointed.  Well this is PH.

You will first have to accept the fact, there has not been a real (non rigged ) election in the pH starting with the first post WW2 election.  Moncado was running as I recall.  He was arrested by the MacArthur military police and physically tossed into the same jail cell block with General Yamashita.  Now that is weird.  The first post war election was completely rigged by USG military because at that time it was already into the big gold deposits.  USG President Trueman was dumb founded when he learned of what was being found.  By having the PH become a sovereign nation it allowed a very simple mechanism to run a cooked or crooked country.  Fully captured to be milked like a cow.

This takes us to the point and one which has been widely discussed by the PH political insiders.  Who ever the next president is, it will be someone installed by the USG military.  There is so many levels and ways to rig a national election.  Hey don't feel bad us Americans are being rigged just like you guys.

CORRUPTION RAISES ITS UGLY HEAD ANEW IN THE PROCUREMENT OF DEFENSE WEAPONS FOR THE PHILIPPINES

News reports are now coming out of Davao that some Israeli companies are trying to get an appointment with President Rodrigo Duterte in order to set a presentation of their products to him. The curious thing is that these companies are not even in the top echelon of Israel’s defense industry and are mostly little known companies with largely unproven products and dubious systems.

Now, they are reportedly flying to Davao to make a sales presentation of these dubious products to the President. They are actually making a fool of the President by making him a Technical Working Group and Defense Acquisition Committee rolled into one. This unethical act by these Israeli companies and their Philippine representative is a major insult to the Department of National Defense and the Armed Forces of the Philippines as it not only bypasses them and disregards their technical expertise, but also tramples upon set procedures to ensure that our soldiers who lay their lives on the line for our protection will always get the best weapons systems in the most efficient and transparent way.

The current procedure, which ensures efficiency and transparency, is for presentations to be made first at the level of the end-user, and based on the expertise and experience of the end-user operating units, the end-user’s Technical Working Groups would make their thorough evaluation of the presented weapons systems and make their informed recommendation to their superiors who will eventually elevate and refer these recommendations to the President based on the parameters recently established by the President himself, which is to go government-to-government on such deals and eliminate the participation of corrupt vendors.

This is where the plot thickens. The presentation is being spearheaded by one JOCELYN MAGCALE of JOAVI who was earlier exposed by the Tulfo brothers. In his Manila Times column last April 5, 2015, Erwin Tulfo gave the sordid details about Magcale and her involvement in shady deals in the DND and Philippine Coast Guard. His article, titled “Lady contractor seduces officials to win DND, AFP deals” is quite informative:

“Perhaps, the true to life story of a lady contractor would spice up a Senate inquiry into the massive anomalies at the Department of National Defense (DND), particularly the overspending and overpricing in its procurement deals.

“Who would have imagined that a comely young woman from Visayas working as a guest relation officer (GRO) in one of the nightclubs in Makati in the 90’s would eventually become one of the wealthiest military dealers or suppliers in the country today.

“Now in her 40’s, this contractor is said to be one of the most sought after contractor by defense and military officials because of her big offer of commissions or kickbacks on every DND project awarded to her. In addition, she has turned the officials’ sexual fantasies into reality.

“This attractive woman had dealt with the DND to supply the AFP with a wide variety of items from small arms ammunition to protective gear over the past years, amassing a fortune out of sweetheart deals.

X X X

“Using her irresistible beauty, she started closing deals by sweet-talking officials DND and AFP both in the war room and in the bedroom, as well.

“Her big break though did not come at Camp Aguinaldo but rather at the auspices of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) with which she transacted business in 2001.

“Again, she capitalized on her seductive beauty to captivate the heart of a high-ranking official who served her the juicy PCG contracts on silver platters.

“Insider info has it that the former Magdalena was impregnated by the official but had the baby allegedly aborted in the guise of a miscarriage for which she was taken to a hospital in E. Rodriguez Ave. in Quezon City.

“When her PCG official lover retired from the service, this lady contractor brought her business back to Camp Aguinaldo.

“The mother of two stayed in great shape such that a ranking officer of the Philippine Army got crazy about her and made her his mistress sometime in 2013.

“It was when she began cornering most of the juicy projects of the Army through negotiated or rigged biddings.

“Her Army general lover eventually retired from service, too, leaving her with the luxury of a plush subdivision in Paranaque and a fleet of lavish cars.

“She continues to transact business at the DND and AFP to this day.

“But the problem, according to some military officials, is her frequent failure to deliver the goods on time when they were badly needed in combat operations.

“Some goods, like mortars for the Army, turned out to be defective.

“There were also instances when she did not deliver goods, at all.

“I’m wondering if this contractor honestly pays her taxes and on time?”

The is also the recent case reported by Marlon Reyes of Inquirer last May 15, 2016 about gross anomalies involving Magcale’s JOAVI and some DBM executives in the purchase of inflatable rubber boats for the AFP in 2010. The article, titled “DBM execs face graft raps” reveals:

“The Office of the Ombudsman has ordered the indictment for graft of six officials of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) in connection with the allegedly fraudulent procurement of inflatable rubber boats for the military in 2010.

“Charged in the Sandiganbayan were Budget Undersecretary Evelyn Guererro, Director Lourdes Santiago, procurement management officers Julieta Lozano and Mervin Ian Tanquintic, administrative assistant Alvin John Perater and ad hoc member Lt. Malone Agudelo.

“Included as a private respondent was Anthony Hernandez of Joavi Philippines Corp., the supplier of the substandard rubber boats.

“In an e-mailed statement, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales said graft investigators discovered that the purchase of the rubber boats, used as rescue vessels, violated several provisions of the government’s procurement law.

“For one, Morales said, the rubber boats did not have inflation valves, over-pressure valves and roll-up floors as specified in the procurement plan/rga”

http//businessinquirernet/210320/dbm-execs-face-graft-raps#ixzz48kGRegr9

Another news report on the case said “JOAVI also allegedly “merely copied” the technical specifications of Zodiac FC470 Futura Commando Inflatable Rubber Boat manufactured by Zodiac International and exclusively distributed in the country by S.A. Phils., Inc.”

Additional about some of Magcale’s anomalies were provided by a group of patriotic officers from the AFP:

“Here are some of Jo Magcale’s anomalous transactions:

1. 2008 - Sometime in February 2008, acting as local representative of Soltam Systems Ltd. of Israel for the supply of 29 units of 81mm Mortar tubes with ILS Package and another such contract, for unknown reasons, has caused the non-delivery of both contracted equipment resulting to the rescission of the said contracts and the eventual Blacklisting of Soltam Systems Ltd. in July of 2011.

2. 2008 – Delivery of 30,000 rounds of Non-Compliant to Technical Specifications of 60mm and 81mm Mortar Ammunitions made by Talon Security Consulting and Trade Ltd. between April and December 2008. This delivery was rejected by SND Teodoro, and its contract terminated and blacklisted thereafter. Ms. Magcale then filed an Ombudsman case against SND Teodoro. Surprisingly, despite this irregularity committed by this company and having been blacklisted for it, from the period of February 2010 to March 2011, Talon Security Consulting and Trade Ltd., was awarded with at least eight (8) supply contracts for ammunition, most of which were participated into as a sole bidder with almost equivalent bid price as that of the project’s ABC.

3. 2009 – Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro ordered anew the scrapping of the bidding process for P500-million worth of mortar ammunition. Teodoro ordered the scrapping of the bidding after the procurement committee failed to comply with the prescribed process, defense spokesman Nelson Victorino said the only qualified bidder, Talon Security Consulting and Trade Ltd., was found to have submitted false documentation. He said the awarding of contract to Talon notwithstanding the flaw would unduly favor Talon.

4. 2011 – While there seems to be no record of an award made to either JOAVIPHILIPPINES Corp. or Talon Security Consulting and Trade Ltd., or its JV which can be found at the “Award Notices” from the PhilGEPS Website, several articles available from the internet speaks of several contract awards made regarding the supply of 100 units of 81 mm mortar with integrated logistics support. It was learned that the JV of Joavi/Talon tried to source the supply of the 81mm Mortar contract from a Bosnian Company, BNT-Tvornica Masina i Hidraulike, d.d (BNT-TMiH) and not from the Serbian Manufacturer of the M69B as originally offered during the bidding. No delivery was made and the contract was eventually terminated.

5. 2011 – The Joint Venture partnership of JOAVIPHILIPPINES Corp. & Talon Security Consulting & Trade with Aquasports Boats & Yacht Company Ltd., was awarded with two contracts for the supply of Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats by the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD), sometime May 27, 2011 and August 16, 2011. Because of the Joint Venture’s failure to deliver its contract commitment relative to the 52 units of RHIB’s, this merited a slapping of a One (1) Year Blacklisting of the JV on January 2012.

6. 2012 – With the blacklisting of JOAVI still in effect, from the termination of its 100mm Mortar project contract, Stone of David Tactical Equipment Company (SODTEC) was established in 2011 by Ms. Magcale. Immediately the following year, SODTEC began with its participation in the DND-AFP Procurements. Between the period of 2012 to 2013, SODTEC managed to land six (6) supply contracts. What appears to be highly irregular in the awards made is that all these contracts are awarded in the name of Stone of David Tactical Equipment Corp. and not the manufacturer. Another highly irregular in the above contract awards made is that the bid price and contract value is almost the same amount of the ABC itself with SODTEC appearing to be the lone bidder for the project.”

Jocelyn Magcale also owns Stone of David Tactical Equipment Company (SODTEC) which tried to supply to the AFP in 2013 some 3,480 sets of Force Protection Equipment (FPE) worth Php120,435,000.00 that were eventually found to be defective (the vests failed ballistic tests) and were rejected by the Philippine Army.

In 2015, Magcale’s Stone of David was suspended by the Government Procurement Policy Board for one (1) year for its failures in supplying 105mm munitions to the Philippine Army worth a total of Php93,600,000.00 – a pattern of failures and irregularities that has been happening to JOAVI and Magcale’s other shell companies.

The same company -- Magcale’s Stone of David -- represented Israel Military Industries (IMI) in 2014 in the Philippine Army’s Php6.5B Shore-Based Missile System (SBMS) Project, where they tried to sell the Philippines a hogwash of a product that President Aquino, the DND and the AFP had sense enough to set aside (a polite way of rejecting, although some very corrupt AFP senior leaders tried to recommend it).

Magcale’s product, the Extra Missile of IMI was set aside and suspended due to realizations that the missile would not only fall miserably short of the AFP’s requirements, it would also significantly increase the possibility of all-out war with China or our Asian neighbours if we ever resorted to using them. These missiles were proven to be incapable of defending the Philippines’ archipelagic territory because they had a relatively short range (only 150 km as opposed to the Philippine EEZ of 200 nautical miles or 320 km and our Westernmost claims in the West Philippine Sea which are of up to 600 km from our nearest land mass in Palawan or Bataan and Zambales) and they could not engage moving targets (for instance, all potential aggressor and threat targets in the West Philippine Sea are all moving). The Extra Missile can only hit static targets within its limited range of 150 km.

Nonetheless, Magcale moved heaven and earth to have her missile product approved, even co-opting some military and public officials particularly using her close allies in the DND and AFP. However, because of his concern for the military and what is right for the government and the country, then AFP Chief of Staff Iriberri resisted Magcale’s machinations.

Magcale had used numerous connections to Malacañang to get her incapable missile product approved, all to no avail. She even made a political alliance with then Vice President Jejomar Binay, with whom she and IMI officials became very close to, expecting that because of his popularity at that time (early to middle part of 2015) he would succeed President Aquino, and be beholden to her group.,
