The President of the Philippines has declared the Marcos-style martial law in Mindanao. This is despite his trip to Russia. He returned immediately to deal with the problem with the Maute insurgencies in Marawi. The place is filled with terror with rebels burning houses and taking over the city jail to free prisoners.

[VIDEO]: President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday night declared Martial Law in Mindanao amid the ongoing clashes between government troops and Maute group terrorists in Marawi City, presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said.
President Du30 always remind people that he won’t hesitate to declare martial law when there’s a reason for it. It is noted that the rebels in Mindanao were in contact with the administration’s detractors, the Liberal party ever since the time of the late Ninoy Aquino. His decision is not a surprise to Filipinos.
The tough leader assures his citizens that there’s nothing to worry about. His action is lawful. It intends to preserve the nation and the people. Only the detractors can say otherwise.
