There's a covert war going on in the Philippines right now, which is racheting up our involvement there.
What cover war in Philippines? Do you have any more info on that matter?
Here's something to begin with:

US FAKING TERROR IN PHILIPPINES
Meiring case unmasks covert campaign to justify intervention
By Craig Hanley, October 10, 2002.
Filipino media can't keep up with American spook sightings. Despite official denials, one story from Mindanao will not go away:
American blast victim in Davao tagged as terrorist.
Jun Bersamin, Radio dzMM, September 27, 2002.
DAVAO CITY - The City Prosecution Office on Friday tagged the American victim of an explosion in his hotel room four months ago as a terrorist.
City Prosecutor Raul Bendico said findings from the investigation of the case indicated that Meiring apparently attempted to set up explosives
intended to blow up Evergreen Hotel when the accidental explosion went off, mangling his lower limbs.
Michael Meiring, 65, of California, was rushed to Davao Medical Mission Hospital on May 16 after the blast inside his room at the hotel located on
Ramon Magsaysay Avenue here.
Meiring was charged with illegal possession of explosives and reckless imprudence "for failing to practice proper attention and diligence regarding
the handling of explosive materials."
But he was reportedly whisked away by agents of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and brought to the United States.
It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times; creating the enemies you need.
