US expands basing agreement w/Phillipines

Apparently some additional base access has been worked out to bring basing from 5 to 9. There's also a map of the tentative locations (note Spratly Isl location) at the article located here.

Though new sites were not officially disclosed, multiple news reports said the U.S. had asked for sites in Cagayan, Palawan, Isabela and Zambales.

The expansion is part of an American armed forces realignment along the Pacific Rim. Working with allies, the U.S. will use sites in Japan, Australia, Guam and the Philippines as quick-response bases against possible Chinese attacks.
