Look, wingnuts. Leave the Filipinos alone.

We have spent the past three years running around willy-nilly, pulling out of international treaties, declaring our right to do anything we consider to be in our strategic interest. The Philippine government decided it was no longer in its strategic interest to put its people in harm's way for a country that, it turns out, was about as big a threat to the world as the Republic of Palau. Even if you disagree, you can't argue with their right to do whatever they like with their military, not if you've been shouting about freedom fries and pouring wine down the storm drain since the start of the war.
