As the RIA News, the US Department of Defense explained that they did not intend to participate in the fight against ISIL (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) in the Philippines, as there were no relevant proposals from the country's authorities.

The Philippines did not apply, and the United States does not plan to strike with drones in the Philippines. We respect the sovereignty of the Philippines and do not take unilateral actions in the Philippines.

- said spokesman for the Pentagon Christopher Logan.

The US Department of Defense denied plans for military intervention in the Philippines


Previously appeared informal messages Pentagon plans to launch an operation against ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) in the Philippines using unmanned aviation.

As Defense Secretary-Spokesman Jeff Davis has stated, Washington shares intelligence with Manila over 15 years. At present, a small number of US military are deployed in the Philippines, who are said to provide support in the fight against militants. In the framework of military-technical cooperation with the island state, the United States transferred two single-engine Cessna 208B aircraft equipped with observation equipment worth over $ 30 million. In addition, 992 missiles and 1040 rocket engines were supplied. It is planned to ship 250 rocket launchers and thousands of grenade launchers.

In the Philippines, since May, martial law has been introduced in the southern province of Mindanao, caused by clashes of the army with an ISIL (forbidden in the Russian Federation) group. The main hot spot is now the city of Maravi, in which approximately 500 militants participated in the fights.

          we made them respect Vietnam. the truth is now the Yankees are weaving strange threads around it. there are many places where we forced the Yankees to peace. We scoured Iraq and Yugoslavia, but it was already the decline of our Empire. with Libya, we will say so, seduced by Western carrots, hello Anatoly. Well, we are working in Syria, and, as always, against the “civilized coalition”.

            All these mattress crawls prove once again what VO has repeatedly said: peace and stability outside the United States they need no more than a lame hedgehog crutches. And in achieving their interests, they do not reckon with the interests of others.

              yes, yes. there is such a theory (which is being realized little by little) of unification into one state of two continents p. America and southern and from there controlled chaos around the world, thereby sucking out all the resources of the planet to fit your needs.

                      Yes, they begin to understand, but the Anglo-Saxons tied them too tightly. their main task is to prevent the rapprochement between the two two powers of the Russian Federation and Germany, because if we get closer, then all the dreams of the Saxons will end. but at the moment we are alone opposing the Saxons_ both for ourselves and that guy.

          Once refuted, it means they can get in ... I remember their ward Saakashvili, too, on the eve of the attack on South Ossetia - 7.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX stated that he had decided to resolve the issue peacefully .... so you can’t trust the Americans
