True, but could be entertaining though. Their most significant surface combatants are 3 USCG Hamilton Class cutters. But they do have a LPD.

This would be the longest and most boring war ever given neither country has enough capacility to reach out and touch the other....

Duterte has fully embraced the populist strategy of making outrageous claims regardless of their feasibility or veracity. Unfortunately seems that this is becoming more and more popular among political leaders around the world.

Well they have us outnumbered about 5 to 1 if it came down to it, but this is all just posturing. That said their navy has 13 major warships so we are sadly on par.

The heaviest armament on their main combatant is a 76mm gun.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorio_del_Pilar-class_offshore_patrol_vessel?wprov=sfti1

The Philippine Navy has a total of 3 of these, everything else is of Kingston Class size. I imagine a single CPF could deal with the Filipino Armada pretty handily.

However if they load the garbage on one of their brand new LPDs, those would make pretty nifty war prizes.

Neither country has the capability to actually conduct an expeditionary operation, particularly across the Pacific ocean... the logistics just aren't there. The whole thing is just comical.

Nannys??? No no, they staff timmies all over Canada. We might lose our double doubles, in a war against the Philippines and that, that would be a catastrophe.

Finally a near peer threat.....

Of course he can take a page from Putin's book and have all the filipino's walkout as a wildcat strike, watch our healthcare and service industry grind to a halt in about 2 hours. Within 24hrs we would have to capitulate.

Wouldn't that trigger Article 5 of NATO? The Philippines versus NATO would be awkward for everyone involved seeing as they are a key US ally in the region...

I, for one, look forward to Albania's response.

Not necessarily.  Article 5 stipulates an "armed attack" as the basis for a mutual response.  Even if someone "declared war" on Canada without engaging in any physical attack then the other members of NATO may not be obliged to join us in the non-fight.  And even if that other country attacked one of our naval vessels (or aircraft or forces), it doesn't necessarily trigger Article 5.  Article 6 explains.

Quote
For the purpose of Article 5, an armed attack on one or more of the Parties is deemed to include an armed attack:

•on the territory of any of the Parties in Europe or North America, on the Algerian Departments of France 2, on the territory of Turkey or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties in the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer;

•on the forces, vessels, or aircraft of any of the Parties, when in or over these territories or any other area in Europe in which occupation forces of any of the Parties were stationed on the date when the Treaty entered into force or the Mediterranean Sea or the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer.

If our ship, or aircraft or forces were outside the territorial boundaries of Canada, or at sea in other than the North Atlantic or the Med then the same would apply, our allies don't have to respond.  Example - Falklands.

Or inside the box.  The box on the cargo plane.  Jam it full of wolverines and let loose.  Or beavers.  Beavers make a hell of a mess to an ecosystem.
