Forums - Politics Discussion - Isis support in Philippines increasing and a battle to control a city (Marawi) has started.

Big outlets are almost not reporting it

Isis flags are  getting raised up.




Prison fire: (people reporting that ISIS has freed the prisoners and let them join them).

Ugh. This is actually a little surprising. ISIS will likely get stamped out there though. Asians don't really play around.



What is Duertes response going to be?

He'll probably shrug it off.

So I'll say it once again; Fuck you Philippines, fuck yourselves.

Philippines has had a Muslim separatist conflict for decades. The main antagonists have rather an amusing acronym for their name: Moro Islamic Liberation Front, or MILF. But there's nothing amusing about their methods.

Seems like ISIS getting in to the game is a pretty big deal in terms of escalating the Muslim separatist efforts.

Duterte could have strong-manned the MILF if they remained isolated from the global terror network. But ISIS coming in to support the MILF (presumably) might make things a bit more challenging for Duterte.

It is not that well known but terrorism from local groups in south asia is pretty common including peacefull countries like Thailand.






The Phillipines is a poor country and a breeding ground for terrorism. High youth unemployment with nothing to lose. ISIS is the global brand of international terrorism brainwashing young people to fight.

Duerte's psychotic regime has only made things worse. He's essentially Asian Trump.

Indeed it is basically maffia.
