2 comments Philippines Versus Taiwan: A Military Strength Comparison

  1. Paano ba natin mapapalakas ang military ng Pilipinas? kailangan ba natin na palitan ang ating gobyerno/constitutional nito? kasi palaging binubully ang Pilipinas.. sa palagay mo anong dapat gawin ng ating gobyerno?

    nalilito na kasi ako eh.. palaging diplomatic style wala namang nangyayari!

  2. Being the strongest is not the rule to win any war. But in reality, being the most high capable country of acquiring the strongest military power is the number 1 basis of being the toughest of all nations. Despite of this, one thing we need to do to increase our (Philippine Military Forces) is to increase our capability of thinking and inventing new things that we need in order to protect our homeland. Buying those weapons acquired by different nations will not help us increase our forces but inventing new weapons like something that will destroy or reverse the effect of other weapons will do to increase our forces. Just think beyond the box of knowledge!
