Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte 'not aware' of US forces joining battle in besieged city of Marawi

Recommended Posts

It is unclear whether the country’s pro-American military went over the President's head in seeking US help

President Rodrigo Duterte has said he was “not aware” US special forces had joined the battle to defeat Isis militants besieging a town in the southern Philippines.

Mr Duterte said he had “never approached America” for help and was “not aware of that until they arrived,” when he was asked about US support to fight the pro-Isis militants in Marawi City, on the island of Mindanao.

The cooperation between the longtime allies in the battle is significant because Mr Duterte, who came to power a year ago, has taken a hostile stance towards Washington and has vowed to eject US military trainers and advisers from his country.

That is absol-f**kin-lutely why those yankee Americans are sticking their fat Islamist noses in the Philippines. You hit the nail on the head. It is not complicated. They are pissed off to no end that he is a confessed Christian that is destroying their drug funnel into Asia while he realigns with China giving the Americans a fat boot in their ass out of the south china sea. It is down right frightening how America's power structure aligns itself more & more & more & more with Fascist Islamist Wahhabism the more its soft power and hard power around the globe wanes.

Go ahead. Kill Duterte. Do it.
Asia is not the Middle East.
Go ahead. Give the Philippines to China. It is what they obviously want.
