A Military defense analyst which is a former Vietnam Veteran official disclosed possible plan of the United States. A standard procedural plan that will protect the Philippines and other allies. Since an on and off mind set of China is so unpredictable and very dangerous that for now there is no guarantee yet to have a lasting peace in the region.
As China declared its “indisputable sovereignty” over the South China Sea, pushing back against a U.S. role in resolving disputes in one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. In which they consider the entire South China Sea as its own, dismissing claims from Southeast Asian countries to islands such as the Spratlys, and continuously reclaiming man-made islands and building a military structure to project power beyond its borders.
He said, “Aside from doing negotiation and consultations with China, the United States may be putting-up a defense shield by means of installing a ballistic missile system interceptors, patrolling and positioning its naval assets in the West Philippine sea.
A plan which will assure its allies that they are doing their best. A precautionary measure in order to protect the people and infrastructures that are not involved and have nothing to do with the conflict. “A prevention of lost of lives and collateral damage in case the war erupts between conflicting countries” He added.
According to him U.S. may possibly deploy itsallistic missile Defense System capability(Aegis BMD or ABMD) like three of its “Ticonderoga-class” guided-missile cruiser and three other “Arleigh Burke-class” guided-missile interceptors.
An anti-ballistic missile shield to be positioned near the western part of the Philippine Sea. From the northern area of Luzon down to south of Palawan. This includes key cities like Metro Manila and other main key cities in Visayas and Mindanao.
The U.S. has also plans for the Philippines to lend a multiple land based patriot missile system interceptors that can be installed close to the military bases, government infrastructures, airport, seaport business districts and residential. A protection and assurance just in case U.S. warships on the Western shore failed to intercept an incoming missile from China.
Missile defense is a system, weapon, or technology involved in the detection, tracking, interception, and destruction of attacking missiles. Originally conceived as a defense against nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), its application has broadened to include shorter-ranged non-nuclear tactical and theater missiles.
