"China declare war with Philippines, only the Philippines. But any country that will ally to our enemy and give support militarily or propaganda, will be consider as an attack to us and will be the enemy of China...
we cut the live press conference from Biejing of Prime Minister Bo Xilai....
We have now footage from manila as the bombing and invasion of China is taking place as we speak right now...
Nevi Calma is live through phone now at Manila. ABS-CBN reporter, a local television network in the Philippines.
Nevi.. where are you right now?
Im at EDSA..its a long highway here in Manila.
Is the bombing still on going?
The bombing stopped at the moment but i can still hear explosion and continues gunfire. But accross Manila at the end of this highway EDSA, report says the bombing is still on going...
Is that at Mall of Asia in manila bay?...
Yes Anderson...most of our soldiers were at right now....
Have you seen paratroopers?...
Yes yes, actually its on going right now... paratroopers are still dropping.
On street are there Chinese soldiers already, the paratroopers?.
Yes... I can see soldiers, tanks mobilizing.
Chinese soldiers and tanks?
Yes...yes...the Chinese, actually they're shooting at civilians.
They are shooting at civilians?
Yes...theres hundreds of casualities at my location. People are running, scared, injured. There are also civilians that take-up arms. Filipinos holding armalites shooting at the paratroops at the air. I see ordinary people with armalites, taking fire....
Civilians are fighting back?
We lost contact with Nevi, a local reporter at Manila. A warzone Metro Manila, as what we heard from Nevi. Civilians are fighting back. Local residents are with armalites and shooting at the Chinese...
The invasion of Manila is happening right now televiewers if you just join us.
Manila bay is where the intense battle is happening. Filipinos are trying to hold off a huge army entering through the bay. Chinese are still bombing Manila bay, and paratroopers are still coming.
We have right now at the studio, former US general Wesley Clark. CNN defense, military adviser. Also former US presidential candidate.
General Clark. Can you tell as what is happening right now at Manila. With Chinese invasion of the Philippines.
This is what i pressumed is happening at manila.
yes...Anderson. Because I can only tell you military strategy, and we are not at manila.
So Anderson...Manila is bombed at around 8:30 evening wednesday there. Chinese version of our nighthawk planes. These are planes that cannot be detected by radars. Report says around 24 of these planes drops bombs at the heart of the manila. We got the intelligence that around 4 am our time, 4 pm philippine time. The Chinese naval force arrive at manila bay. Chinese say thay it composed of one aircraft carrier, 5 big battleships, 20 support battleships, 12 submarines and 10 ships that carries 20 to 30 thousands soldiers.But only around 8:30 that they start the invasions. At around 10 pm, planes carrying 10 thousand more soldiers paratroops arrived. Nevi said that paratroopers are still coming as we speak, these is probably the second batch, i think carries around 5000 more paratroopers.
So general Clark, manila right now is annihalated?...
By number of troops, aircraft, naval force. Manila right now is in total destruction.
Why China doing this?.
This is the 'shock n awe' the Chinese are using. They launch a huge number of their forces. Probably 1/4 of total military strenght of China is at manila right now.
I will cut you at the moment general, as we have now report at UN headquarters as member nation of security council are having a emergency meeting.
Craig...so whats the latest there?
Anderson...as of the moment meeting is at a stand still. US, France and Great Britain is pushing for UN forces to be at aide to Manila. This means that the whole member nations is asked to help to produced military forces, just in the case in Korean war. But Russia had already opposed this, as they claim that China is also a member nation. Ambassador from Russia's speech, 'that UN can't commit the whole member nation against it's member nation. And that aide for Philippines, since its a war between two nation, would be from their ally nation only'.
Remember Anderson...both Russia and China are permanent member of the security council of the UN and they both use their veto against the creation of UN forces for the Philippines.
So what do you think would be the decision of the security council?
As of the moment...the meeting is adjourn for 10 minutes. But by the look of it, there would be no help for the Philippines from the United Nation.
Thank you Craig...we'll hear from you more for the decision later on...
Craig Dawson from UN headquarters here in New York.
Back with general Clark here at studio. So if UN will not help the Phiilippines. The US had to help. Since we had signed a treaty with Philippines. We had to oblige by it.
Here's the thing...you see, if we've come to help the Philippines, we would be at war with China as well. Then we dont know who allies with the Chinese, probably the Russians, or other countries who opposed american foreign policy. Like Iran, would ally to China.
Then we have our own allies.
Are we on the verge of a world war 3?
I think that's what they try to resolve at security council right now. To avoid more countries to be involve. To make this war between those two countries only."
Papasikat na ang araw, dahan-dahan nang nagliliwanag ang kapaligiran mula sa malagim na kadiliman. Subalit ang bangungot nang dilim ay nagpapatuloy kasabay ng pagyakap ng liwanag. Nakita ko ang isang sundalong pilipino maliban sa mga patay sa paligid. Agad akong sumigaw upang marinig niya ang aking mga panaghoy, sa gitna nang maiingay na putok ng armas ng pandigma.
"Mga kasama may naipit dito...tulungan niyo akong iangat...bilisan niyo..."
"andyan na ang mga intsik...bilisan niyo diyan...."
Dinig ko ang nga tunog ng mga tangkeng papalapit, ang mga tunog ng armalite, nga pagsabog ng bomba habang pinagtulong-tulungang alisin ang konkretong nakadagan sa akin. Napakaganda ng papasikat ng araw habang nakatihaya ako sa nagkalat na mga pirasong nawasak na mga gusali, hinihintay ang tuluyang pagkatanggal ng umiipit sa akin sa tulong ng mga kababayan kung hindi nagdalawang isip na ako'y iligtas kahit na nasa gitna ng nagliliparang bala at bomba.
"tumayo ka na...bilisan mo...ugghhhh!"
Napakaamong mukha ng aking kababayan habang nakangiti sa akin na siyang humihila sa akin papatayo ang bigla ay tumulo ang dugo sa kanyang mga bibig, kasama ang luha sa kanyang mga mata. Kasunod niyon ay ang pagbagsak ng kanyang katawan subalit nakangiti pa rin siya habang dahan-dahan siyang nalalagutan na ng hininga.
"patay na siya...sayo ba tong IPad...ito kunin mo...bilisan mo nandyan na ang mga intsik..."
Hindi pa man ako nakakapagpasalamat ay kailangan iwanan ko na ang nagligtas at nagbuwis ng buhay sa akin. Ang mga kalaban ay nakikita ko nang malapit na sa amin, kaya kailangan ko nang umalis kasama ng mga ilang sundalong natitira sa paligid ko.
