China told its citizens on Thurday they were not safe in the Philippines and its state media warned of war, as a month-long row over rival claims in the South China Sea continued.
Chinese travel agencies announced they had suspended tours to the Philippines, under government orders, and the embassy in Manila advised its nationals already in the country to stay indoors ahead of protests on Friday. Five hundred protested outside the Chinese embassy, in the event.
And the Philippines wants Chinese gamblers to visit Manila, and the Chinese to invest in the country. What a joke! Want Chinese money but intent on upsetting China. Filipinos are not realists.
