Singapore Offers Assistance To Philippine Army

FILE IMAGE

Singapore Defense Minister Ng Eng Hen announced that his country has offered an assistance to the Philippine Army in the battle of Marawi.  Singapore offered to provide drones and urban warfare training for the Philippine soldiers.

The Singapore Defense Minister said the aim of the assistance is: “to enhance the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities” of the Philippine Army.

“We recognized that the area in Marawi and surrounding areas is very large. There are many islands. Surveillance is an issue,” he added.

The United States envoy to the Philippines announced yesterday that the United States will transport two C-208 aircrafts equipped with reconnaissance, intelligence and surveillance capabilities within two weeks.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is working to extend the duration of the martial law. He already confirmed in a letter to the Philippine Congress that the battle will not end on July 22, the date of the end of the martial law.

From its side, ISIS claimed that 11 Philippine soldiers were killed as a result of clashes in the Marinot and Liloud Madia districts in Marawi city during the last two days. It’s believed that at least 60 ISIS fighters still control parts of Marawi City.

    Lets get the facts straight here… This “ISIS” is nothing more than US bought and paid for operatives that have been parachuted into the middle of the Philippines for regime change… They want Duterte removed from office and the reestablishment of a US puppet regime in Manila…

    We have only seen the beginning now of criminal US operations for regime change in the Philippines…There will be more bloodshed and more appearances of “ISIS” across the islands very soon….

      This is 100% the fact – well said. No country can trust the US over any single thing. They are dedicated Empire builders and always engineer “regime change” to install their puppets; no wonder they’re the most hated country on earth. Meddlesome, untrustworthy, dishonest, decietful, scheming and highly manipulative …. oh …..and I have forgotten murderous.

        US is a puppet of Israel.

    Lmao. You know what is more funny about this whole ISIS in philippines saga they were only 500-fighters in this entire Philippines war. I’m like what the fuck man. All this noise for 500-fighters. multiple nations and countries rushed to philippines for only 500- teenagers in the southern Island of the phillippines while 200.000 civilians was evacuted just because of that

    • African Child

      500 fighters occupying peoples homes and using the civilians as human shield. Do you kill thousands of civilians to eliminate the fighters or try to save the civilians and eliminate the ISIS at huge costs?
      The Govt is there to serve and protect the people using every resources at its disposal and thats what Philippine is doing by asking for help

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        Government is just a social construct.
        It was up to the locals to know who is in their community and to have prevented this.
        The local militia with the support of the citizens should have stopped this before or just as it started.
        Government is a tool of slavery.
        Citizens and citizen-militia is the reality of a healthy society.

  • African Child

    ISIS arrived the moment Duterte made a rapprochement to Russia and China.
    If Duterte cancels his recent deals with Russia, the US will transfer ISIS to another front which may likely be Venezuela or Iran for another regime change.

    • Nigel Maund

      Precisely! The coincidence was utterly predictable. Perhaps ISIS should raise hell in Chicago or better still on Wall Street, NYC. Now how about that? Better if the US sunk into a hellish Civil War that lasted for years and utterly destroyed the economy and left the rest of the world in peace.

  • Justin Ryan

    Send in the Gurkhas! ISIS will shit their pants! They WILL use pigs blood and anything they can to fuck these ISIS rats!
    I imagine they will force feed pig meat to them, make them have sex with a pig, sow an ISIS head onto a pig and let the pig run through isis territory!

  • Mario Ceva

    All countries that confront USA receive ISIS Jiadist militant.

    I wouldn’t accept any US help. Just work with China. US help comes with strings attached. All countries that work with US (Zionists’ agent) end up paying a heavy price. Just avoid them. The US is trying to lure the Philippines over to the US side. Cut off with them completely. They want to overthrow Duterte. This is why ISIS suddenly showed up in the Philippines. That’s why there was that strange terrorist attack in a Manila casino recently.
    Working with Singapore is OK, although Singapore has some Mossad connections. Not completely compromised though. Best to be independent in the long run though. Get some weapons from North Korea. This is the best policy for Small Countries – following the North Korean model: juche (joo-cheh) and getting nukes and some bad-ass missiles.

  • tigbear

    Do I see small nations cooperating together? I hope so. I want to see small independent countries working together, not affiliated with any of the superpowers too strongly, but mainly supporting one another in regional alliances.
    In the Middle East, the cooperation between such countries is going well. Middle Easterners are Zionist-aware. They voice the threat openly. They’re not afraid to speak out against it. These nations are Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen. Armenia, though strictly not in the ME, is joining by making trade partnerships with Iran. Recently, Armenia sent a large donation of food aid to Syria.

    • tigbear

      In SE Asia, they are not voicing the ZIonist threat openly but they are probably starting to make the connections with America and Israel. The alliances and cooperation are more fluid in this region. Many countries play both sides of the fence. For example, Vietnam is such a country. Now an ally of the US, Vietnam has moved away from its former “communist” allies. SIngapore too. Although it has strong links with Mossad and IDF – Singapore’s military is modeled on Israel’s and Singapore is said to have a love affair with Israel – Singapore also has clandestine business relationships with North Korea.

      • tigbear

        North Korea, an Asian Independent Small Nation, has many relationships with Middle Eastern players. But these are also in flux. It still has got good relations with Syria, but this relationship is changing. Syria is throwing its lot in with Russia more these days. Because of the human rights issues that the US uses as a weapon against Syria, Assad is starting to distance himself from Pyongyang. There were a lot of weapons transactions that went on and lots of other military gear sold to Syria, but looks like Syria has run out of money and may buy from Russia (and China) in the future, and will buy on credit.

        • tigbear

          North Korea still has good relationships with Iran, another Small Independent Nation. It seems strange that an atheist nation would ally with an Islamic republic, but not when you look at North Korea more closely. It is actually quite a traditional society with conservative values, not that much different to Islamic nations. Although Abrahamic religions are discouraged from spreading in North Korea, the native religion of Chondoism is left alone. Chondoists actually hold seats in parliament. Besides, Small Independent Nations can overcome differences in religion and culture and work together on common areas. They need each other for self-defense.

          • tigbear

            They also need each other economically. The Zionist Axis wages economic war, not just military war, on Small independent Nations – hence, it makes sense for these Small Independent Nations, no matter how far flung they are around the globe, to work together in trade and mutual aid cooperation.
            They all have resources or goods another country in the network of Small Independent Nations needs.
            Strength in unity. Weakness in division.

          • tigbear

            Singapore actually is a partly socialist nation. There isn’t that much difference between North Korea and Singapore. North Korea is more socialist than communist. North Korea allows private property to a limited extent. People can keep the houses they have been given by the government until they die. They can pass it onto their children. They just cannot sell the house for profit.
            Other nations in the nexus are Myanmar, Nigeria, Belarus, Bulgaria and Venezuela.

          • tigbear

            Instead of working exclusively with Russia or China – these superpowers cannot be trusted as these nations sometimes cooperate with the US in a two-faced way – these countries can work with each other. They can trust each other better than China and Russia. I don’t mean to put down either superpower and think the nations should move toward them and away from the US, but ultimately these superpowers belong to the Superpower Group and not to the Group of Small Independent Nations.
            Many Central Asian republics can also join the Sphere of Small Independent Nations. I want this alliance to grow and become stronger.

          • tigbear

            Now that North Korea has nukes that reach the US mainland (although it needs even longer-range weapons, to reach the capital Washington and NYC), the community of Small Independent Nations is strengthened. Because the US will be under threat of nuclear attack itself if it starts throwing nukes at North Korea, the country most under threat of attack (besides Iran) by the US, the USA’s position as a marauding zombie superpower is weakened somewhat.
            For the first time, a Small Independent Nation has developed the ultimate weapon of destruction against the USA.
            This provides a lot of hope for the Network of Small Independent Nations.

          • tigbear

            If they are smart, they will help strengthen one of their own, so that it can continue making strong self-defense systems. North Korea can sell these defense systems to these nations and these Small Independent Nations can cooperate with each other in technology exchange. With knowledge pooled together, they can become stronger. Individually working on their own, in complete isolation, makes progress faster. One nation can reverse-engineer a captured enemy weapon and then pass on the information to other nations. These nations can make modifications and improvements to the design. If one country is under sanctions by the hypocritical UN or UNSC because of its weapons development, other nations can support this nation financially.

          • tigbear

            There is no reason for these Small Independent Nations to leave themselves at the mercy of the Superpowers if they come under attack. See Yemen and Syria. Being under the umbrella of a superpower’s protection doesn’t really guard against attack. Syria got attacked. Russia only came in 4 years after the war had started. Its role in the war is limited. Again, I don’t want to criticize Russia, as it’s pulling its weight in this war, more than China, and many Russians have died in this war, but I am just being realistic – Russia has its own interests to look after, and this should be recognized.

          • tigbear

            Small Independent Nations have got more in common with each other, and can provide good support to each other. Iran has been a steady source of support to Syria in this war for a long time. Small Independent Nations need to put unimportant differences aside, and work closely together. The Philippines is starting to do that. Even Qatar is breaking away from the ZIo Axis in the ME. Turkey has made significant moves toward Russia and away from the Zio Axis in Europe. Egypt will probably be next. Poland and Hungary are starting to grow further apart from the EU. A lot have dual alliances, a foot in both camps, but still it’s starting. The Alliance of Small Independent Nations is growing.
