Pentagon Cheers as Philippines High Court Approves US Deployments

Pentagon officials are touting a great victory today as the Philippines Supreme Court voted 10-4 to approve a deal that will allow the return of US troops and weapons to military bases inside the Philippines. This ruling was related to a 2014 deal on the return of US forces, which had been challenged in court.

The agreement was related to territorial disputes between the Philippines and China in the South China Sea, with the Philippine government hoping to use US military forces to enforce their claim. Already, Philippines military officials are calling for US deployments to the contested islands, citing “flashing flights” from China as a military challenge.

Yet another poke in the eye to China, I see.
