all this might be, but one has to admit that China has every year had a growth of over 8%, and this for many years. And it also depends from which level something grows. If there is a comparatively large growth from almost nothing, then the result is still... modest.

I'm far from pitting the Philippines against China, and I'm not the one who knows all answers and reduces a complex issue to 1 or 2 simple reasons.
But one has to state that the Philippines are relatively bad off, compared to some of its neighbouring countries. And there are also Filipinos who freely admit this....

Yes, that is true.

But I hate those people who so very arrogantly look down at less fortunate states.

look at all the "free booz" and women they are supplying them in Angeles City. You wouldn't want to lose that, would you? The Philippines, saddly, has little more to offer since the polit ...

No Longzhou my friend, the reason you give is incorrect. Remember that the Philippines used to be a US possession and durring WW2, blood, from both parties was shed in defense, and retaking, of the islands. I suggest thyat this is the overriding factor in any US decision to help the Philippines.
