Philippine president Refuses to Stop State of Emergency

On Sunday, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte refused to stop the state of emergency in the country, saying it’s not negotiable.

“We can talk about something else and go to concessions, but not when my country’s interest is at stake,” the Philippine president said.

Duterte declared a state of emergency in the country after about 500 ISIS fighters took control of Marawi City on May 23.

The Philippine Government said it has so far evacuated 400,000 civilians from Marawi City. According to officials, the evacuations included nearby residents of Marawi and the nearby area.

400 people have been killed in the Marawi battle, including 300 ISIS fighters, 82 Philippine soldiers and 44 civilians. It is believed that about 100 ISIS fighters are still inside the city, a part of whom are teenagers.

ISIS claimed on Sunday that 8 Philippine soldiers were killed in the Moncadou district of Marawi. Although nearly 40 days have passed since the occupation of the city and the Philippine government has received a direct assistance from several countries including the United States and Australia, it is still unable to secure the entire city.

        Uhhh, what about their enforcer, the US? Having the Aussies and US helping is most likely why ISIS hasn’t been completely routed by now.

          i dont disagree with that either!
          Anybody who helps the USA in this war is working for the Devil!
          Australia is just showing its loyalty to its ally and has no ambition or profit from this war other than the benefits they get from American’s being our Allies (im australian)
          So yes, Australia are aiding ISIS too!

          But lets be honest, this is Israel’s war and America’s war!
          Saudi Arabia benefits greatly also!

          But because im australian doesnt mean i support our actions!

          “you’re either with us, or u are with the terrorists” is the mantra of the USA!

          Which really means…. “u do what we say or u become our enemy”.

      Great mighty one, there are some countries in the world that are weaker than the USA. For the people born in those countries, their problems are not as funny as they look to you.

        He’s a nut. Read his other posts.

    At this point how can the mainstream really be taken anymore serious. All the fuse and noise about Marawi was about 500 fighters where an entire city of 400.000 people were evacuated.

    Here is the funny part The US even sent forces to this comedy show..

    Yes its true, Mindanao should maintain its peace before its too late. Martial Law is not what and even the same before…… For us here in Mindanao, really needs an action to counter terrorism. But sad to say, just don’t give space for US their aid might be turn to worst if not seen in the dark< CONFUSING FOR IT!😣😣😣😣😣

      I read on another military website that China has supplied the Filipino military with 3,000 assault rifles and 800 sniper rifles along with several million rounds of ammunition. Hopefully the troops can put these supplies to good use.

    Philippines faces a grave crisis. Not even saying Duterte is doing everything right, but the people who want to pooh-pooh it–what side are they on?
