#3 In the South China Sea, the PHIL + CHINA had repor withdrew their protests ala disputed Scarborough Shoal, but only one CG Warship/Gunboat apiece, + pullout by 3 of 8 Chin Fishing Boats.

AFAIK that leaves two armed Chinese Maritime Surveillance Gunboats [converted PLAN Destroyers?]versus one PHIL Coast Guard Search-N-Rescue vessel???
