Last Sunday, the Philippine military said that the United States is helping them in confronting the militants of a terrorist group that swore allegiance to the ISIS. The military operation has already lasted several weeks in the city of Marawi in the south of the country. An important detail - the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte said that he knew nothing about the appeal of the Philippine military to his American colleagues for help. He explained the arrogance of the Ministry of Defense with strong pro-American sentiments among the Philippine military.
