Scarborough Shoal is a treasured island. It is located on the west coast part of Philippines particularly in Luzon. It is said to be rich in natural resources and minerals. An island like this is full of treasure given by our mother nature. From water to land, we can say that it is truly a paradise. Everything in this island is considered a gift from God, enough to make greedy country to conquer and take it away from being a property of Philippines.
This island is one of the 7000+ island in Philippines. Considering the land area, it only measures 150 square kilometers, too little island yet China still wants to claim it as their land even though maps around the world clearly shows that it is still inside the Philippine area of responsibility. Besides, this island is nearer to Philippines than China.

So why does China still claim it as their land despite of the fact that it is still enclosed to Philippine Area of Responsibility? the answer is, because of its treasure, the treasure I mean is its natural resources that can feed billion people in China.
2. Natural Gas
4. Huge Oil Deposit in Scarborough Shoal Island
I highlight the last thing because it is obviously the main reason why the little island of Scarborough Shoal is being claim by China as their island.
Despite of the bullying done by Chinese, Philippine still wants to stop the problem in a silent way, since China is more powerful than them. Philippines is a poor country, they don't have enough weapon to protect their nation. They only have courage, they can fight but they are not sure to win.
China has Nuclear Bomb, while Philippines don't have any. But since Filipinos are religious people, I don't think that they must be afraid. If China says "we have nuclear bomb, you must be afraid" Philippines will just prepare their words and say " Hey, China we are not afraid, we don't have bomb but at least we have God to protect us".
If another war happens, we will fight, with our rosary we will make you stop, with our prayer we will make you kneel, with our God, our country will WIN!!!To other: will you help Filipinos in praying?
To Filipinos: will you fight if the possibility of war occurs, or you will just stay in your house while watching the Nuclear Bomb falling from the sky? please comment it.
