Chinese general: Philippines stirs trouble for asking US help | Headlines, News, The Philippine Star | philstar.com

A Chinese military general told foreign media Thursday that the Philippines plays the character of a “troublemaker” in the South China Sea.

“The role of the Philippines in the South China Sea is actually, in my view, a troublemaker,” People’s Liberation Army Major General Luo Yuan, known as “The Hawk” among Beijing’s military leaders, said in his first interview with foreign media.

Luo said the Philippines attempted to provoke the Chinese government by asking help from the United States, whom he called “biased” over the maritime dispute.

A Chinese news analyst had also called the Philippines a “troublemaker” for seeking help from other nations in pursuing its claims over parts of the potentially oil-rich Spratlys region.

An online research exercise – Is the existence of Israel threatened?

In order to conduct online research much faster, I modified the WordPress search results to include only the date and title. Also, the results template shows 100 titles per page, so you can quickly scan hundreds of articles.

There are two search engines for this website. The first one uses Google results. The second one uses the site database and returns titles only.

I was interested in determining whether Israel was headed for war. I quickly found results for these categories: Coordination, missiles, chemicals, air defense and war. The general idea is that Israel’s enemies are coordinating their activities, building a large stockpile of missiles. developing chemical weapons, purchasing air defense systems from Russia and generally preparing for war against Israel.

Is the very existence of Israel being threatened?
