US should not be kidnapped by reckless allies

Since last month, The Philippines has made a series of farces around the issue of the Huangyan Island. It seems that it is the frictions between China and the Philippines but anyone knows that there is a shadow of the United States between the two countries.

More surprisingly, Philippine President made a public speech among the leaders of the allies of the United States in the Asia-Pacific region for the first time and said that China will not use force due to the existence of the United States. The Philippine Foreign Minister said recently that the United States will protect The Philippines from any attacks in the South China Sea. An important fact that people cannot ignore is that the United States also bear tremendous pressure and confusion not because there are great interests in it but it is nagged by the so-called "credibility".

In nearly 70 years since the end of the Second World War, the United States established a global military alliance network. Providing military bases, logistical support in wartime and military action for the United States, these allies have become an important pillar of the global domination strategy of the United States. The eternal problem for all the presidents and strategists of the United States is how to maintain the alliance network. In their view, it will cause suspicion of the allies to the credibility of the United States if the United States cannot timely protect its allies at the military conflicts. This is the greatest threat to the network.
