The Philippines set up buoys in the South China Sea to "swear sovereignty", and China could not bear to launch a counterattack!
Recently, the Philippines secretly laid and printed the Philippine flag "solar navigation light buoy" in the waters near Faith Island, Huoai Jiao, Nanjiao Island, Double Yellow Sandbar and Oxbow Reef in the mainland's Nansha Qundao, in order to show the Philippines' so-called "sovereignty" over the five islands and reefs in the South China Sea.
After many rounds of competition, the Philippines failed to break into mainland islands and reefs, and secretly laid buoys, reflecting the contradictory mentality of not daring to confront China head-on. Under the head-on confrontation, the Philippines does not take any advantage, and the result is self-inflicted humiliation.
In the face of such illegal acts by the Philippines, China is bound to launch a counterattack. Senior Philippine Coast Guard officials warned of serious consequences if China dismantled the buoys laid by the Philippines. The Philippines has frantically provoked the mainland's bottom line of patience and challenged the mainland's sovereignty red line in the South China Sea.
The mainland could not bear to launch a counterattack, and assembled a large number of coast guard boats, fishing boats and warships in the waters near the islands and reefs for deployment. Under the escort of the China Coast Guard, Chinese fishing boats operating nearby fished away all the buoys illegally laid by the Philippines.
Since Marcos Jr. hooked up with the United States, he was willing to be tied to an American combat vehicle, assumed the role of encircling and containing China, and invited the US military to add four new military bases in the territory, located in Luzon and Palawan, closely watching the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait, and deployed two military bases in the northern Philippine province of Cagayan, about 400 kilometers away from China's treasure island.
The Philippines' practice of luring wolves into the house will surely pay a heavy price for its own death. During the joint US-Philippine military exercise, the Philippines' provocative actions at Ren'ai Jiao did not stop for a moment. In April, when Chinese and Philippine coast guard ships clashed at Ren'ai Jiao, Philippine patrol ships forcibly entered the waters near Ren'ai Jiao to transport reinforcement materials for tank landing ships that illegally landed on the beach, and were forced to stop by the mainland 5201 ship.
The Philippines, which does not have long memories, again sent a number of law enforcement ships to forcibly enter Second Thomas Reef on May 10 and 12, but they were successfully intercepted by mainland coast guard vessels. In the face of the crazy behavior of the Philippines, the mainland put on a move to completely solve the broken warship of the Philippines in Ren'ai Jiao.
In order to warn the Philippines not to cross the red line, a large Chinese tugboat numbered 19016 appeared in the waters near Ren'ai Jiao, ready to take action at any time, coupled with the mainland coast guard law enforcement ship in the nearby waters to enforce the law, this tugboat more than 60 meters long and 9 meters wide can directly tow away the Philippine ragged warship with a displacement of 3,200 tons, this tug appeared near Ren'ai Jiao, either as a deterrent effect, or directly cleared the Philippine warship sitting on the beach of Ren'ai Jiao.
At present, the Philippines illegally occupies eight islands and reefs on the mainland: Mahuan Island, Nanjiao Island, Thitu Island, Xiyue Island, Beizi Island, Faith Island, Shuanghuang Sandbar and Commander Reef, of which Thitu Island is the second natural island in the South China Sea, and its strategic location is very important.
On May 15, the China Coast Guard issued Order No. 1 promulgating the Procedural Regulations for Coast Guard Agencies in Handling Criminal Cases, which is the first regulation on maritime rights protection and law enforcement work authorized by the Coast Guard Law, clarifying the jurisdiction, litigation, reporting, and notification systems for crimes committed by foreigners.
From the legal level, the coast guard is given the relevant rights and necessary means to enforce the law abroad, which means that China coast guard ships are routinely enforcing the law against foreign vessels, including foreign coast guard ships and civilian vessels, and strengthening the law enforcement of the China coast guard in the South China Sea. For the China Coast Guard, this regulation comes at the right time and is of strategic significance, and will not allow any infringement of China's sovereignty.
Obviously, this is a warning to the Philippines, as well as to Vietnam and other countries that illegally occupy China's islands and reefs in the South China Sea. Seeing that it could not get any bargains at Ren'ai Jiao, the Philippines extended its tentacles to other islands and reefs in the South China Sea, hoping to repeat the illegal occupation of Feixin Island, Huoai Jiao, Nanjiao Island, Shuanghuang Sandbar and Oxbow Reef.
The Philippines regards China's goodwill and restraint as weakness, and wants to take advantage of the opportunity to illegally enclose land and occupy islands and reefs in the South China Sea. Large mainland tugboats are on standby at Ren'ai Jiao, and if the Philippines' provocations intensify or even an armed conflict breaks out, we can take advantage of the situation to withdraw the Philippine warships and recover all the islands and reefs illegally occupied by the Philippines.
The overall strength of the Chinese coast guard ships is to hang any country in Southeast Asia, equipped with 76mm naval guns and 1130 close-in guns. In terms of firepower, Philippine law enforcement ships are at an absolute disadvantage, and if the Philippines crashes ships, they will not be able to hit mainland coast guard ships.
The Philippines illegally laid buoys on oxbow reef because of the strategic location of oxbow reef. Oxbow Reef is the largest reef in the Jiuzhang Reef of the Nansha Islands on the mainland, and one of the most important reefs in the entire Jiuzhang Reef.
The Philippines has its eye on the mainland's oxbow reef and sent law enforcement ships to provoke in 2021, which were successfully repelled by mainland coast guard ships. In the face of absolute strength, the Philippines is playing the trick of the United States to fake the tiger power, and in the end can only humiliate itself, and when the time is ripe, China will recover all the islands and reefs in the South China Sea with a thunderous force, and no country can stop it.
