...from the perspective of the Americans. But did we think that the foreign policy of the Philippines under the Marcos administration would look this way?"
Well, to be honest, I think one thing at least I got right was that he will not be like Duterte. You can look at my writings back in June last year. I said he'll be more like his father, multi-vector, close to the U.S. but reach out to the other side.
But yung pivot niya back to the U.S., yung velocity has been much faster than I thought. So honestly, I was expecting ma-finalize itong ETCA coverage and ma-doble potentially after yung kanyang official or state visit to the White House in April pa.
So on the record, I said let's wait until April, just the other day. And boom, pagbisita ni Austin pa lang, eto na. I mean, interestingly, it seems like every time Secretary of Defense Austin comes to the Philippines, something major happens.
The last time he was here in 2021, na-restore yung VFA, si Pangulo Digong ay nagpasalamat sa kanya for showing solidarity because of the vaccines and everything.
This time he's here, boom, already na-finalize na, hindi lang yung full implementation of ETCA doon sa five bases. Dalawa dyan, may direct na kinalaman sa West Philippine Sea, Bautista Air Base, Palawan, Basa Air Base, Pampanga.
But now, four undisclosed locations. The question is how north is north? Is it going to be in Cagayan, in Isabela, mainland proper in Luzon? Or are we going to go all the way to Fuga Island?
Yung tanong ko, how open are you to keep calling that undisclosed locations? Or are you fairly confident? Because there are a lot of reports going around kung saan malalaga ito. A lot of it in the north, near to Taiwan, we're talking about Cagayan.
How confident are you in projecting where they will likely be?
