The Yellow camp has called President Rodrigo Duterte as not being in control of the Marawi terrorist siege because he was not aware of the off-ground assistance of Americans, but writer Antonio Contreras quickly countered this logic.

It is as simple as the President not having asked American for help in the terrorist siege. Contreras said it was the Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana who sought for assistance and the US willingly obliged being that ISIS is their nemesis.

Contreras explained that the US’ extending help was part of political pragmatism given that they have always condoned and fought terrorist attacks by ISIS.

Contreras even paralleled the situation to that of a father and child when faced with an enemy. A child would readily seek the help of an ally when his father was threatened. In the event that the ally helps, a father would say he did not know about the help because he never asked for it, but grateful nonetheless.

In his full post on Facebook, Contreras said,

"The President said that he did not ask for the help of the Americans.

Since the Americans are now in Marawi, providing some off-ground assistance, his critics took this to mean that he is not in control. Others derisively taunted his supporters, and mocked us of the anticipated justifications that will most definitely come from us.

 But what justification is there to conjure when it is all apparent.

It is obvious that the President did not ask for help personally.  It was Delfin Lorenzana, the DND Secretary who reportedly did, and the US, obliged by our treaty with them came for they knew that anything about ISIS is in their interest too.  That is political pragmatism.

 Parang ganito lang yan.  May inaway kang kaibigan. Tapos may nangaaway sa iyo na kaaway din ng kaibigan mo. Di ka humingi ng tulong, kundi ang anak mo. Dumating ang inaway mong kaibigan para tulungan ka. Hindi mo tatanggihan. Pero para malinaw sa lahat na hindi ikaw ang bumigay, ano ba sasabihin mo. Hindi ba ganito: "Oi, hindi ako humingi ng tulong dyan ha. Di ko nga alam yan. Pero andyan na. Alangan naman tanggihan ko e friend ko naman yan at may pinagsamahan naman kami.

Gets niyo?"
