@Norinco_81 bro no problem during Obama and Trump term , the Philippines is a backwater compare to Afghanistan. Bro let me give you a "story" of unofficial American involvement, please google SAF 44 Massacre and lets have a discussion, it will show you how an inept former President sold out his countrymen and its elite forces for an American request (politely speaking a DEMAND). Not only that it almost cause a renewal of war in Mindanao.Thanks for this response, as my main area of expertise would be the ME and Afghanistan. I do recall a guy that were part of US advisory teams with AFP forces against MILF and other Islamic separatist groups in Mindanao. He didn't mention much detail since they "officially" weren't there.
