Rick Fisher sends in a news item that goes with his article in our DTE this month, just published here on the free site: Tension Between Philippines And China Grows.

The news piece is KYODO: U.S. Marines to Set Up Command Post on Palawan Island Facing South China Sea.

Rick writes:

This is clear evidence that the U.S. recognizes both the vulnerability and importance of Palawan in both defending the Philippines and in securing U.S. security interests in the West Philippine Sea. Palawan is the frontline in this theater of operations.

Check out both stories.
