Duterte claims ‘never approached’ US for help in battle against Islamist militants

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: Duterte just blamed the US for the presence of ISIS weeks ago and feared assassination by the CIA. The US has now essentially invaded the Philippines. This shows you how much ownership the nation of the Philippines has over itself. Can you believe the hour we live in where a nation can continually violate the rights of other nations and not a peep from anyone in government or the citizens of our own nation?

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has denied media reports claiming he requested US Special Forces assistance in the battle for Marawi City, saying on Sunday that he “never approached America” for help.

I am not aware of that until they arrived,” Duterte said when discussing the latest developments in Marawi City.

Duterte’s comments follow a 14-hour battle Friday that killed 13 Philippines military personnel and left 40 wounded, the heaviest losses sustained so far in operations to retake the city occupied by ISIS-affiliated militants.

Since May 23 when fighting began, 58 Philippines soldiers have died.

  1. If Special Forces is there, then they are there to HELP Obama/Hillary/the US’s ISIS, plain and simple.

    Duterte has raised the ire of US Officials for pointing out the schmucks they really are, and such talk is dangerous, for it could eventually awaken Amerikans.

    Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw………What was I thinking?!?
