US government helping?, it would make matter worse with US government meddling.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The US government like to be considered by the world as the 'master' on world affairs. However, these countries can deal with the problem in their own way. They have better grasp of their own local situation. So butt out ! There is already enough mess created and left behind by nosy US intervention!

They have better grasp of their own local situation.

That may very well be true but in many situations they lack the sophisticated intelligence gathering capabilities that the US Military possesses.

these countries can deal with the problem in their own way.

This "problem" is not a local problem, it is a regional problem. And every regional power mentioned in the article already has a collaborative relationship with the US relating to this and many other issues. One consistent strategy shared by every country mentioned in the article has been to request and receive assistance from the US military and intelligence community. Accepting US assistance is one way that all of these countries "deal with the problem in their own way".

There is already enough mess created and left behind by nosy US intervention!

Interestingly, 54% of Malaysians, 61% of Indonesians, 75% of Singaporeans and 92% of Filipinos have a positive opinion of the US. What a mess!

So butt out !

You might want to get the opinion of the people directly receiving US assistance on that.
