The most ambitious. The United States and the Philippines began joint military exercises


About 5, thousands of servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Philippines will join 3 with thousands of American colleagues to participate in Balikatan’s 34 military maneuvers (translated shoulder to shoulder), which in 2018 will be held with an emphasis on “mutual defense, fighting terrorism, responding to humanitarian disasters and natural disasters. "

Australian Defense Forces and Japan’s Self-Defense Forces will also participate in exercises under the US alliance system.

As the US ambassador to the Philippines, Sun Kim, said, "the exercise provides for a training version of a military operation in an urban area." The model will be last year's military operation in the city of Marawi (Philippines), which was carried out for five months, the channel said. The territory of the city was occupied by the terrorist group "Maute", which stands for the "Islamic State" (IG, banned in the Russian Federation).

Earlier, Duterte promised to reduce the number of US military involved in counter-terrorism training in the south of the Philippines, and also spoke of the intention to completely stop annual military exercises involving the US military, AP notes.

      Well, at least read something on the topic before writing. In the Philippines, Islamic militants fought with the government even when modern Ishilovites walked under the table.

    A few sayings of Duterte:

    1. In response to criticism from Barack Obama, Duterte publicly cursed him. “You have to show respect. No need to make statements and throw empty questions. Son of a bitch, I curse you on the forum »
    2. called the gay and bastard son of ambassador Philip Goldberg
    3. It came from Duterte and former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The Philippine leader simply called him a fool. And he threatened not only to leave the UN, but also to create an alternative organization.

    So what, a cool Filipino was blown away?

    They will not teach “bad” in urban areas (if there is such a concept). An example in Syria.
