    Yes we must chip in, by building a naval base for Vietnam in one of the islands they control.

    Guess someone is quaking in his boots...... :lol: I hope the "Dragon" continue with its bullying against the "Pearl of the Orient Seas", so that the "Bald eagle" will have the perfect excuse to materialize this plan.

    Hello everyone!!! I am Anubhav. I've been an avid reader of this forum and finally decided to join in. Some of my fellow Indians here want to side with filipinos against China. No offence but have you ever been to philippines or worked with filipinos anywhere around the world? You have no idea how much they hate India and its people. Do you know all those name callings like Five Six , Turko or Bumbay. To them we are low life and stinky cheap people of a poor third world country as if they are some first world super rich nation. Just visit their forums on the net and you will know what they think of us.

    I am not a hater but I 've experienced this myself. I dont think we should side with such haters and disrespectful people. Let them fight their own war and US.

    wow. sorry to hear that my friend. but to give you meaning on what you just heard.

    five six - meaning indian people who lend money to poor people in Philippines.

    turko?? - dont know the meaning. or word does not exists in my vocabulary.



    bombay
    1)bombay ( now mumbai)is a city in western India just off the coast of the Arabian Sea; India's second largest city (after Calcutta); has the only natural deep-water harbor in western India.. )
    2)includeds people who are filthy rich and people who are dirt poor..also has the infamous dharavi(biggest slum in asia)
    3)amazing night life and the people are more open minded than the people from other indian cities its the safest city in india.and bombaites enjoy alot of freedom
    4)Bollywood(indian film industry) is based in bombay.. so every indian celebrity lives in bombay.


    I think you should be proud.

    Anubhav, just an old adage, an enemies enemy is your friend. We have nothing to gain from the Philippines but it sure can be a pain in the behind for the Chinese and that is all we need.

    you are wrong with what your hinking Anubhav T. you see my friend when a filipino is in need of money, he approaches the bumbay. this is where the five-six comes in which is a help in times of need.
    so you should be proud that you are helping the needy:rolleyes:

    You are right brother, but I don't think they can be pain in the chinese behind with their so called navy (bunch of coast guard petrol vessels donated by US) and a non existent air force. They can be itch in the butt but no pain. They wont last a day in a naval or aerial warfare. Sooner or later big daddy US will join in. If that happens I will go and buy a 60 inch plasma and enjoy the show with chow mein and coke when two biggest bullies of the world take on each other.
