    I think it is positive for the Philippines that Duterte has decided to keep the VFA with the US open, after all.

    I think he is getting more skeptical of China, or he already found the highest bidder.

    And good reason to be - the government of China wants to trample the planet and fit it to suit themselves.

    The next big crisis may start with China - Oh! Just remembered, so did the current one.

    I think it's a two-horse race personally.

    Our boy here has just over 2 years left, his last year will be used to cement his legacy, im sure he is getting the picture that the middle kingdoms pledges were just that "pledges", and they bluffed him big time, there is no time limit with the Chinese , they have already focused on who they want as the next Boss here, and will try to shape that outcome, but I think our guy here will gently cozy back up to the US, and they being just as good at whoring than China, will ease back in to the scratcher, and as they say "pay the lady and leave the bed"
