RHB, I love reading some of this stuff, but i really enjoy the conspiracy theory crap you're spouting. pretty good. a navy guided missile destroyer trolling or drilling for oil off dumaguete. ingenius....they'll find it before the chinese get there. i'm sure they have that drilling equipment hidden on board somewhere. they probably are also searching for Yamashita's gold the marco's regime hid in the mountains nearby to deny the filipino people access to it. maybe it was hidden in the dental work of the angeles bar girls who jumped on a plane and flew down to duma when they heard there was a navy ship somewhere nearby. ever think the ship actually did come to dumaguete as part of a military/military exchange between the Filipino and US governments? naaah, not scandelous enough. ps...guess oil was found in Manila harbor, Cebu and Olongapo as at least 6 US ships have visited the philippines in the last 3 months delivery humanitarian supplies, providing hands on labor to improve filipino schools and medical supplies donated by american citizen groups just to name a few activities.
