    Its better to start procuring equipment sooner than later. Past Philippine administrations made a big mistake by neglecting their armed forces, it will still take a significant amount of time for the Philippines to build up they armed forces.

    thats because the past philippine government only focused on trade and economy which increased corruption now we are focusing on armed forces which decreased our corruption but the problem is our economy is getting weaker :/

    Recent news about Duterte and Philippine modernization wouild put a kibosh on several procurement which includes missile defense systems, some Filipinos speculate that this is done by Duterte so that he would not "anger" China.
