By

MANILA, Philippines—Three Royal Thai navy ships arrived at 8 a.m. Friday in South Harbor in Manila for a goodwill visit, the Philippine Navy said.

The ships–HMTS Chao Phraya (455),  HMTS Bangpakong (456) and  HMTS Pattani (511)—will be in the country from February 15 to 19.

The ships are under the command of Rear Admiral Sucheep Whoungmaitree, the commander of the Royal Thailand Naval Cadet Training Unit.  There are 759 officers, naval cadets, enlisted personnel and non-military rank personnel on board.

The Thai officials are scheduled to pay a courtesy call on Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim and Manila Police District Director Senior Superintendent Alejandro Gutierrez.

        Actually, ” In numbers there is strength”. Kalaban mo napakalaking bansa, kaya mo bang magh-isa? Hindi kaduwagan ang mag form ng coalition when you are right, this is called strategy and tactics to cehck and balance ang normally can`t be checked like China except by the US only… hindi ito ordinaryong laban ng mga taga squatter of the Philippines…since hindi tayo ang squatting in this part of the world kundi ang China sa Spratlys.

        lahat ng gusto ng free navigation, yun ang sumusuporta sa bansa natin, hindi nila gusto ang gustong patakaran ng china na nine dash line law kasi kung maisakatuparan yun ng instsik, malamang magbabayad ang thailand sa china bagu dumaan yung mga trading ship nila sa south china sea, tax yun, at yun yung ayaw ng mga ibang bansa….

        you must be too naive to think of so much to the other powers…beggars can`t be chooser! Whatever support they choose to give, be it materials, morale, and or physical deployment are all welcome!!!

        The US and Australia will honor the defense treaty with the Philippines  and Japan once attack. On the same tokens , China is not invading Taiwan because of the defense treaty with the US although Taiwan has modern military hard wares from the US, the US will still defend Taiwan.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i hope you dont have a wife and kids because if you do i feel sorry for them life must be hell with all the slobbering you do. oh im stay waiting for you to have me  deported. what happened get lost

    okay for our thai friends to their warships’ goodwill visit so that our country will speed up it’s military modernization program in defending our shores from unfriendly neighboring country.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

    Most ASEAN countries have modern guided-missile destroyers while our navy contends itself with second-hand WWII or Vietnam-war vintage.

    PHL has the capability and knowhow to fabricate similar warships but I cannot understand what’s preventing us from doing so?

    • opinyonlangpo

      The political initiative is missing. They either busy campaigning or mudslinging, doesn’t matter though as long as their pockets are full.

    • superpilipinas

      I’m not sure PH by itself has the capability yet. Military specs might be different from civilian ships. It might not be as simple as one might think. DND probably knows.

      We could try spending to build one but we have the risk of commiting very expensive errors. It’s like reinventing the wheel. 

      My suggestion would be to have a joint venture with those who have built many. For example, Japan has built patrol boats and destroyers. India is building an aircraft carrier. We should have a military alliance with them and have joint venture shipbuilding in the Philippines. We can also include Vietnam. Then we export the ships to countries needing to defend themselves agains aggressors. Imagine the tens of thousands of jobs this venture will create. From laborers to maritime engineers to radio communications experts, etc.

      Oh by the way, we need that steel plant back. France was driving out steel giant Mittal. We should entice them to invest in the Ph….but on the condition that they don’t ruin our environment.

      In the next election, vote for candidates who think about creating jobs with new ideas. Don’t vote for those who just have condoms in their minds and all they know is how to patch problems.

       M O N E Y !!!!!

  • opinyonlangpo

    Australia, Japan, Canada, Thailand, India, USA, Philippines . . . the Chinese must be very happy to know that it will take so many to level up the playground. Just shows that China is now considered a superpower.

    • superpilipinas

      USSR was a superpower until it collapsed. The reason is the big gap between the rich and powerful and the poor and weak, which is also now becoming worse in China. It is an inherrent weakness of communism.  

      • opinyonlangpo

        Uhumm maybe you meant capitalism. There is no rich and poor in a communist state, all are equal and subsidized by the state.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/BXPFY2NP3KNS6XLFTXA47GIKMQ Rodolfo

         WRONG ! unless you are a member of communist party, you are nothing but a peasant !

      • opinyonlangpo

        You have a comprehension problem. Anyway you are free to understand what you like.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FWD5IDZT7SXOEHKLE3O7CGFOAE Bright

    To the PHL Navy, please create navy strike groups. One or two ships will not do the job!

    • Crazy_horse101010

      yeah you want companies  to come here but the government has so  many  restrictions on them they cantdo anything that is why counties are going to all going vietnam. you dont even produce enough power to take care of what you have now thats why the philippines has the most expensive and worst power systems in asia and the world knows that you better hope for condoms because your other dreams  will never happen.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/BXPFY2NP3KNS6XLFTXA47GIKMQ Rodolfo

       Or candidates that are part of the problems !

    All these 3 ships were built in China (check out wikipedia) Who knows, maybe China is already testing their ships range via Royal Thai Navy visit. Thanks guys !! you should have brought your US made ships instead. the paranoid lives.
