That wasn't an opinion. He was stating it like it was fact. Nope, the country offered their help and given historical ties, ASEAN leaders won't refuse help voluntarily offered. Besides the only reason outsiders would help is because they have vested interests in the oil in Spratly's. At least India and Japan are helping for purely security and mutual respect reasons. Also, if you notice Vash's argument, he's elevating and praising China. Pretty much absurd for someone whose country isn't in good terms with it.
What I stated were indeed facts. What about you? Your opinion is heavily biased and favor Philippines based on nothing but Philippines' current point of view rather than historical facts.
Please counter-argue (with facts) when you can find one.
