Just Asking -

Okay, I saw on the news today that U.S. is planning to bomb Marawi City because of the insurgents. Honesty, U.S. don't you have any other thing to do except bomb third world country where you know you are always superior? U.S and Philippines have an agreement that they (U.S.) cannot send warships or bomb a city if the insurgents are locals - the agreement states that U.S. can only meddle IF the insurgents are international terrorists. Come on, respect our bilateral agreement. Just because you are superpower does not mean you can meddle with our war against local insurgents. Okay, I know that we are waging a war on our local shores but don't you get it? Families fight with their clans. You don't fight the other people's war. You can only teach them how. I know you are concerned but is it not a lesson learned when you fought the Vietnam war? North Korea vs South Korea? There will always be war but don't you have more important things to do on your own country other than meddling with ours? Just asking. Anyway, this is just my opinion so all the people who have their own, post on your own page okay? I don't need anyone who feels they know everything. I am speaking from a perspective of a person belonging to a third world country.

    It is strange. US presidents get elected on promises of peace and as soon as they are in the White House, they rampage across the world.

        It is the military-industrial-congressional-complex which controls foreign policy in the interests of the corporations.

      It is a national obsession … running the world and believing we know what is best for all … and the MIC is the director of the insanity…

    If the local militia’s can take on the local insurgents I say them them fight their own war. If training is needed, then I say we ( the USA ) should provide training, and possible arms if the locals just have guns for hunting. We the USA have enough going on to keep us busy for the next 100 years.

      But USA doesn’t restrict itself to providing training or hightech gears..they slowly embed themselves in their war and take over…its like you give them a finger and they rip the arm off…

    The DND said that although security relations and counter-terrorism efforts between the two countries are robust, the assistance provided by the US is limited to technical assistance, sharing of information and training.

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who attended the ASEAN summit this week, said Monday that the United States provided the Philippines with a few Cessna aircraft and drones to help with surveillance capabilities against pro-ISIS militants.

    “We think they are beginning to get that situation under control. But the real challenge is going to come with once they have the fighting brought to an end how to deal with the conditions on the ground to ensure it does not re-emerge,”

    Don’t know anything about this, ALL they’ve been talking about today is the DPRK nuking Guam.

      Seems that we just gave the government some weapons to help deal with insurgents. I’m not crazy about that because it strikes me as more of a civil war than an invasion, but honestly I just don’t know a lot about what’s going on in the Philippines. To use the radar analogy, there’s a half dozen 757’s circling & this is a Cesna 1000 miles away in clear skies. It’s just not getting any attention here. I’ve heard no one talk about it beyond their President being upset with Obama & pledging towards China. Sure I’ve heard there’s an insurgency there, it’s brought up every time they talk about the Global War on Terror.
