Military Review

Mattis commented on the supply of Russian weapons to the Philippines

33
Russian delivery weapons to the Philippines did not bother Washington, transmits RIA News Statement by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis.




Yesterday, a consignment of military products, including small arms, ammunition and trucks, arrived in the Philippines from Russia. The transfer ceremony with the participation of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte took place in the port of Manila on board the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev.

I do not attach much importance to this. I know that a number of trucks were delivered to help a country that fights terrorists. This is the sovereign decision of the Philippines,
said the head of the pentagon.

The minister also noted that he had an "open and warm meeting" with Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte, during which they discussed "military cooperation and the fight against terrorism."

      The supply of Russian weapons to the Philippines did not bother Washington ...
      “What else can they say?” Duterte made it clear that he was at least disillusioned with the Americans.

        This is flying! As part of US policy, local bullshitters will blame Mattis for sympathizing with Russia, like Uncle Rex Tillerson ..

      What else can he say? What he imposed on his pants - he’s still a military man, and Duterte, why not piss him off once again, will not go into his pocket for a word, will call him a publicly mad dog ... But the State Department’s talking heads at the next briefing may well take care "Russian attacks on Philippine democracy" laughing

      Well, let's be honest. China has helped the Philippines a lot more, and at a time when they really needed it. At the beginning of the Summer, PLA air forces brought more than 3000 weapons to the Philippine caliber (Chinese Aroids and Chinese Air Force under 7.62 NATO).
      In addition, he significantly helped with money. Both direct help (no need to give), and credit (need to give), and participation in investment projects (which is very important in a warring country, where investors flee from).

        No one disputes this. Duterte flew to China and to Russia, sat and cracked. Something the Chinese planted, something we. Geographically, China will obviously be closer there. They are three thousand barrels with cartridges, we are five thousand barrels + a million rounds. For a country with 300 million people, this is a drop in the bucket, so the Americans do not consider these supplies to be able to change the arms market. As soon as it comes to the supply of military aircraft, ships, tanks, air defense systems, then the State Department will be worried. The US has already spoiled it. The very fact that the Philippines is clearly drifting toward China and Russia turned for the Philippines and Duterte that the Americans arranged a provocation with the capture of the city by representatives of the igles.

          Well, the Chinese delivered about 10 thousands (the first tranche of 3k Aroids, plus SVD, plus bolts - the second 2k Aroids + SVD + machine guns, the third still 2k Aroids).

          So, about the hard, you need money. They bought in 2 DKVD in Indonesia. Bought T50 in South Korea.

          By the way, it’s strange why they asked for the rifleman (still not under that cartridge). They at least a company of tanks would have gone well in the 1 light armor division (where only armored cars). Which T-62M. Here is the uniqueness of this. ATGM in the country there. That is - there is nowhere for the Baboons to take them. The tank there will be the king of the battlefield, even in the city you feel normal. Moreover, everything is fine with the infantry. Moreover, the Indonesian DKVD Tarlaki are already in service and were involved in the transfer of the 1 light armored division. Tanks climb there wonderfully (whole mouth at a time).

        Hello Victor! The United States, in my opinion, was always a danger. Especially when they imagined themselves a world hegemon

                An anecdote recalled a bull and a sledgehammer, when two godmothers hit a bull:
                -Kum, if you once again shy at me with a sledgehammer - I can’t hold a bull wink

      Why? For SS-68 - when Filipinos have suitable personal protective equipment and the whole army is equipped with them. Or for the old AK - when the Filipinos have the whole army on the Aroids and 7.62NATO - with good equipment.

      The problems of Maravi lay in the fact that there were no fire suppression means. A machine gunner and a couple of broads with Aroids are sitting in the house. And that’s all. We must try to cover it with artillery. Roll out 105mm howitzer for direct fire. Call Bronco or T-50. For their armored cars in such situations are useless and vulnerable - despite the overhang of boxes and paper on all projections. There are no tanks.
      Their infantry is well armed and resistant. When there was a big contrast in August. On boats, from the outside and from the inside. Not one opornik escaped. Everyone fought bravely. Some of the oporniks were surrounded until 3 days. Losses from 6 (official data) to 150 (Black release) people. But both releases agreed that the Ghanima was several units of small arms removed from the corpses and that’s it. Prisoners of 0.

      Well, Metis specialists worked there together with the army of Duterte. Therefore, obviously there were some contacts.

    Why would it all be? First misunderstanding and alertness, and then suddenly a different reaction? Who will believe that the United States is preoccupied with the fight against terrorism, and even more so about the sovereign decision of the Philippines?

    If mattresses were not bothered by the supply of Russian weapons and equipment to the Philippines, then certainly not a word would have sounded from Mattis. The bench press went for sure.

    well, let’s say that the delivery is purely symbolic: 20 trucks, 5 thousand AK and lam cartridges .... a drop in the ocean, really ... but the fact itself is welcome. so to speak, the protocol on intentions

      The Philippines is also the jungle. And in the jungle, only AK, moreover, Soviet or Russian production. The Chinese and Americans are wedging.
