Marawi siege & Chinese tourist influx

Published on : Saturday, July 22, 2017

MarawiThe Marawi siege started on the same day May 25, 2017 President Rodrigo Duterte was closing an arms deal with President Vladimir Putin of Russia when This happening seized Philippine President’s attention and immediately foretell worse things to happen to the country.

For this writer especially, the Marawi attack by the jihadists was tremendously disturbing.


My mindset was it that it would be something closely akin to the Syrian civil war which needs to be developed by way of advancing the United States’ touted pivot to the Asia Pacific region. The MILF secessionist movement which expanded the impetus with the conclusion of the Mindanao peace talks in Kuala Lumpur in 2008 emerged to be the main drive for the reestablishment of US moves in order to reinstate Philippines military bases.


An MILF takeover in Mindanao would need the United States to handle with Muslim political entity as an alternative of the Philippine Senate which had abrogated the US-RP Military Bases Agreement in 1991. This scenario was highlighted by the US when a US State Department top element in the year 1999 made representation with President Joseph Ejercito Estrada, speaking in President Bill Clinton’s stead, instructing him to stop his march with his strategy to crush the MILF mother fortress, Camp Abubakar.
