Philippines is such an insignificant speck relative to China.

and Syria and Afghanistan and Yemen are insignificant specks compared to the USA. Not that it has stopped the USA being fought to a standstill in Afghanistan.
(mostly harmless)

America don't eye their oil....China eyeing sea oil.

Oil,
we're not talking about black gold,
It's Earths, Minerals.
Afghanistan Holds Enormous Bounty of Rare Earths, Minerals...

Afghanistan has identified world-class concentrations of rare earth elements, the prized group of raw materials that are essential in the manufacture of many modern technologies, from electric cars to solar panels. So far, geologists say, they have mapped one million metric tons of these critical elements, which include lanthanum, cerium and neodymium.

The USGS's exploration time has been strictly limited due to the deposit's location in the most dangerous part of the country, near the southern border with Pakistan.
The geologists were delivered to the site in Black Hawk helicopters, and armed soldiers watched over them as they scoured the ground for clues.

Rare Earths; do you comprehend

DUTERTE GETS A RUDE AWAKENING ON TRIP TO JAPAN - DUE TO A DEATH IN THE FAMILY, THE EMPEROR CANCELED THEIR MEETING - SO MUCH FOR BEING "CLOSER THAN A BROTHER" TO JAPAN.  APPARENTLY, SUCH FEELINGS OF INTIMACY ARE NOT MUTUAL.  THE JAPANESE ARE SENDING DUTERTE HOME WITH REPORTEDLY ONLY 48 MILLION DOLLARS IN SOFT LOANS, COMPARED TO CHINA'S 9,000 MILLION DOLLARS OF SOFT LOANS (20X THE JAPANESE LOAN AMOUNT), AND 2 BILLION DOLLARS IN TRADE DEALS COMPARED TO CHINA'S 15 BILION DOLLARS OF TRADE DEALS (7.5X THE JAPANESE TRADE DEAL).  SO MUCH FOR DUTERTE'S TERMS OF ENDEARMENT TOWARD JAPAN, CRAFTED BY SOMEONE IN THE TOP TIER OF GOVERNMENT, NO DOUBT TO DRIVE A WEDGE BETWEEN THE PHILIPPINES AND CHINA, BY CLEARLY DEMOTING CHINA'S STATEMENT OF DUTERTE BEING A BLOOD BROTHER, WHO CONSIDERS JAPAN INSTEAD AS BEING MORE THAN A BROTHER.

CHINA SHOULD SIMPLY DO BUSINESS WITH DUTERTE, BUT HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS OF ANY TRUE PARTNERSHIP IN RESOLVING THEIR TERRITORIAL DISPUTES.  BASIC TO ANY NEGOTIATION IS THE TRUSTWORTHINESS OF THE WORDS OF THE OTHER SIDE.  WITHOUT IT, THERE IS NO SENSE SAYING MORE OF WHAT WILL NOT BE TREASURED, RESPECTED, AND HONORED.  CHINA CAN AFFORD TO HELP THE PHILIPPINES WITH 24 BILLION DOLLARS - EASILY - THAT IS SMALL CHANGE, IN RETURN, CHINA GAINED AN INSIGHT INTO THE CHARACTER OF ITS "BLOOD BROTHER".
