Is the new military chief the key to stronger defense of the West Philippine Sea?

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon is encouraged with latest interviews from Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, the newly-minted chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. For him, the military man is off to a good start regarding his take on the contested waters dominated by China.

Sobejana described China’s new coast guard law as “very alarming,” seeing it as a threat to Pinoy fishermen.

“I like what I’m hearing,” Biazon said of the AFP chief. Will his words translate into action?
