Philippines was a country in Asia. It helped the allies in the Third World War, and as a result, their capital was hit. Soon after the war was over, there was some riots/protests happening in the lower areas of the island and soon, the Philippines police and military tried to stop the protests, which not much success. Though, eventually the nation got some peace, however a few protest still continue. They also lost the Spratly Islands to both Vietnam and Taiwan as it is now shared by the two nations. With that said, the Philippines were forced to withdraw all claims to Spratly Islands and accept the fact that they'll never get it.
