The Philippine government keeps complaining about the vicious attacks on its commercial fishing boats in the South China Sea by the Communist Chinese Coast Guard.
I have no sympathy for the Philippine government because they funding their own demise with their continued trading with these evil Communists.
The Communist Chinese Coast Guard continue to harass and threaten Philippine fishing boats ramming their vessels and firing water cannon on them in international waters in the South China Sea.
What’s interesting to note is that the Philippines is a major if not the number one supplier of nickel ore to Communist China. Communist China imported 5.52 million tons of nickel ore from the Philippines in 2023.
The Communist Chinese need nickel ore to produce boat propeller shafts and turbine blades for their military and Coast Guard vessels to include nickel ore for its submarine propellers, warship propellers and aircraft carrier propellers.
These are the vessels that threaten the U.S. Navy and our friends in international waters in the South China Sea.
The Communist Coast Guard continues to harass the Philippine fishing boats and threaten peace and stability and freedom of navigation in the South China Sea but with that said:
The Philippine government needs to stop crying about the communist Chinese until they stop and shipping them the raw materials that the Communist Chinese use to build the propellers that move the Coast Guard vessels that harass their fishing boats.
Nickel is also used in Electric Car batteries, including rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries and nickel-metal hydride batteries used in hybrid vehicles manufactured in Communist China bringing hard currency into this Communist dictatorship.
The Philippines is funding its own demise and assisting the Communist Chinese expand economically with their continued trading partnership when in fact they could put a halt or at the very least slow down the Communist Chinese technological advancements.
Tesla should close its Electric Vehicle plant in Communist China and relocate it to the United States then the Philippines can ship us the nickel ore. But the majority of citizens of the United States are not interested in buying these vehicles but we would at least control the market on Electric Vehicle batteries.
