Aug 27, 2009US troops' combat role in Philippines revealed

ref:  http://is.gd/eizs0

...."US structures

The US military has also built permanent and temporary structures in several AFP camps in Mindanao, Gadian said. These structures are often "off limits" to AFP personnel, and Filipino soldiers, including generals and other ranking officials, can enter only upon invitation and are limited to certain areas, she said.

In her affidavit, Gadian explained that the permanent structures "are those with fixed foundations made of concrete and cannot be easily removed." She said that since 2002, the Americans had temporary, as well as two permanent, structures in Camp Basilio Navarro, the headquarters of the AFP Western Mindanao Command (Wesmincom) in Calarian, Zamboanga City. The headquarters of the US Joint Special Operations Task Force-Philippines (JSOTF-P) is also at Camp Navarro. Said Gadian in her affidavit: "The American camp in Camp Navarro consists of two permanent structures, built by the Americans, located near the office of the Headquarters Service Group of the [Wesmincom]. "The two permanent structures are fenced off by barbed wires and guarded by US Marines. Filipinos have no access to those two structures except that on occasions, a few Filipino officers are invited inside the bigger structure [but still on a limited access] which has the name of the [JSOTF-P]."

4 AFP camps

Gadian said the Americans had also built and maintained temporary and permanent structures in the Edwin Andrews Air Base for their personnel and equipment, including tanks and communication facilities. "This area is fenced and secured by Filipinos and Americans hired by Dyn Corp., an American private military contractor. Filipinos have no access to this area," she said. According to Gadian, the Americans have access to the air base's airstrip, and their planes come and go almost every other day. Their aircraft-C-12, C-130 and Chinook-are parked at the base operations center.

Gadian named the four AFP camps where the US troops maintain "temporary structures"-Camp Malagutay in Barangay Malagutay, Zamboanga City, the training camp of the Philippine Army; the Philippine Naval Station in Batu-Bato, Panglima Sugala, Tawi-Tawi; the Naval Forces Wesmincom in Lower Calarian in Camp Navarro; and Camp General Bautista in Busbus, Jolo, Sulu...."

Yesterday it was cockfight, today a cuntfight? And Germany is not an "US-occupied territory" but an independent, souvereign nation that can chose its allies by itself....and our natural allies are the US.

So basically, it is a waste of time for China (or any country) for that matter to pen in a traety with the Germans.
They don't have the final say in their own soverignty.
Uncle Sam does.

A mat ...



then tell me why Germany opposes the US in many matters? Why didn't the Germans take part in the Iraq qar?

And with the 4+2 treaty 1990 Germany regained full sovereignity....
