(Topic: Why is the NBI Going After Those Who Uploaded the Sagonoy Video?)

Iqbal of MILF raised the issue that SAF soldiers died as a result of firefight between MILF and presumably with BIFF but not outright massacre; he contradicted himself during the senate hearing. Had the video not gone viral, Iqbal would have continued to challenge government's autopsy reports and he would be very credible. The Cyber law crime criminalizes the freedom of speech of some people who uploaded the video in the Mamasapano incident. It obstructed justice and buried the truth so deep.

So much discussions about the Moros and the Philippines. So out of curiosity-- anybody here can tell if the Moros actually ceded their land or surrendered, or accepted to be part of the Philippines? Sabah was entrusted to the Marcos regime to try and get it back from Malaysia (to no avail)-- but was Mindanao, Sulu, Jolo really subjugated by the Spaniards to make it totally under their control that it can be claimed as part of the Filipinas government? Anyone?

Those idiot rebels who uploaded gruesome killings in YouTube think that we the Christians will squirm in fear and join in their religion.... they are bloody wrong...it only proved that their god is Satan himself the father of lies and the great deceiver. So just like your father the Devil ..you will be destroyed for good for all eternity in the coming of our true God and Father Jesus Christ...!!!! You got no hope, no life and condemned for total destruction.

After watching the senate hearings on Mamasapano incident, there is no other person to blame but Purisima and Napenas, who was a subordinate general acting on the orders of a superior officer. Purisima wanted to grab all the glory in getting Marwan but unfortunately the cost was too much to bear to the 44 members of the SAF families, to the PNP, and to the country in general. Inspite of being suspended, Purisima was coordinating the SAF activities on January 25 in Maguindanao and giving the President incorrect updates. By keeping the AFP out of the loop in the operation, Purisima must now bear the cost of failure and away from the smell of glory.

If Purisima "LIED" to Aquino about the Operation to get Marwan then this is worse than insubordination and should call for the Court Martial of Purisima. But the question is why Purisima would consciously lie to Aquino? Is it because Purisima and the Aquinos go back a long way & that Purisima all that time did not have a strong opinion of NoyNoy? Aquino should lay bare everything he was told & be very careful so as not to appear he was using Purisima as a fall guy. Nor should he do anything that might seem to protect Purisima.

Someone commented -"Aquino was aware of what was going on in Mamasapano but he was not being given an accurate situational report. Purisima was the pivot man during the entire OPLAN Exodus " OH WELL! Another shade of gray in the Philippine circus! Perhaps that is what the spin doctors wants us to believe-- thus, mitigating the negative position of Aquino--- with the full cooperation of Purisima and other tutas -of course!!

Despite being suspended from the PNP, Purisima was directing Oplan Exodus with Mapenas as the point man. Purisima did not give the necessary military courtesy and respect and to PNP, OIC Gen Espina neither did he coordinate with the AFP that has the necessary military assets and personnel (logistics) to provide assistance in the event of trouble. The intention was obvious. Purisima wanted to grab the full honor and glory of having killed Marwan. Had fewer casualties been incurred, Purisima was a foregone HERO. He got his reputation and standing back in the community- his lifestyle was no longer an issue!

Purisima lied to Aquino? Well, it's not exactly a blatant lie but rather a calculated telling of events as they unfolded. What Purisima did was to delay & put the most disastrous scenario in a positive light. In other words he put a spin on the incident. If true, this should all come out. It may portray Aquino not only as clueless but as a Commander-in-Chief who was so weak his subordinates would not hesitate to misinform him. Is it possible that that's how Purisima feels about Aquino? At any rate the TRUTH must come out no matter how ugly it is.

I still stand by my opinion that Purisima did what he did about this massacre for personal reasons. He wanted to be able to take the credit for its success so he could use such credit to neutralize the Plunder accusations against him. Unfortunately the Operation was so ill-planned it turned into a catastrophe instead. Too bad this incident diverted the countries attention from prosecuting the Crooks & Plunderers. Why is it that in the PHL only the Crooks, Thieves, Plunderers & all sorts of criminals get the break? Why?

Kung gusto ng mga tao na maipagpatuloy ang lahat ng hindi pa tapos na mga kaso sa lahat ng corrupt at sa kakasuhan pa, iboto nyo ang irerekomenda ni PNoy at siguradong malilinis lahat yan. Kung si Mar Roxas, ok lang din dahil mas tipong mahigpit at honest din. Kaya huag ng maghanap pa sa mga ibang partido dahil hindi tayo nakakasiguro. Dito sa pamahalaan ngayon ay sigurado dahil napatunayan na natin. Hindi man maperfect sa ngayon, darating din na mapeperfect kung hindi tayo magkakamali ng iboboto natin. Sa subok na tapat maglingkod na tayo.

Isn't it incredible that the biggest Thieves & Crooks in the Past are now portraying themselves as saviours? They want to overthrow Aquino & install themselves as a "Council". Translation: They want to have a SHORTCUT to power & once there the good old days of plundering with impunity will be back. WHY are these people still around? Because of the lack of political will to bring them to justice for their crimes! For as long as the Filipinos allow their officials to steal & plunder without having to answer for it the country will never have peace & prosperity.

It's not even about the Mamasapano massacre anymore. It IS about the persistent scourge of Corruption rearing its head even when the country needs to unite & fight a common enemy - the Moros. Look at the Tabloid media. Look at the Larcenous Scoundrels from the Past glorifying themselves. Look at all the mindless drift of the Filipino people. From trying to fight corruption they are now focused in installing a supremely corrupt, gluttonous, thieving person, Binay. When will the Filipino people ever focus on a subject long enough to make a difference? When will they ever get tired of their misery?

Re: Headline: "Bong Revilla meeting JPE at the PNP Hosptial Accidental".. Feb 14, 2015 was the 91st birthday of JPE . He is detained at the PNP Hospital considering his health situation he needs to be in an AC environment (airconditioned).Sen. Bong was complaining of heart ailment so he was sent to the PNP hospital for emergency check up.Itso happened that JPE was celebrating his birthday that day so they met "accidentally".Sen. Revilla we know that you were in the Senate for years when JPE was Senate Pres.. Of course you knew he was celebrating his birthday at his hospital room. Why not have an emergency check up on that day.

Why is the PHL media giving Peping Cojuanco coverage? What does it matter what he thinks? This guy is known as "The Broker". A big Crook! This is the in-between guy in all the crooked deals during Cory's time. "Babalu" as he is called is a big time operator comparable to the likes of Enrile & Binay. This Peping is the "Padrino" that the Marcos cronies paid & used to escape justice. Who is this guy to talk about good govt.?

Kawawa ang mga nasusunugan ng bahay. Mahirap sa kanilang situasyon na nawala lahat ang kanilang pinaghirapan. Sana sa mga pangyayaring ganyan, magawaan ng gobyerno ng paraan na hindi lumalaki ang sunog at hindi naaapektuhan ang marami. Ngayong nawala na ang kabahayan nila, pwede ng gawaan ng gobyerno na magkaroon ng maayos na kalye at apartment at hindi mga eskinita na mahirap makapasok ang bumbero. Pagandahin na ang lugar... para mabawasan ang mga pangit na hitsura ng mga kabahayan sa PI at ng maranasan naman ng mga mahihirap na makatira sa maayos-ayos na tahanan.... na mababayaran naman sa murang halaga.

PATHETIC. The recent Anniversary of the EDSA I People Power came & went without any of the excitement that attended it in the previous celebrations. The attendance was not even discussed. All they highlighted was the absence of the major players of the 1986 drama. I think it's about time to lay to rest this humungous failure of Democracy. Instead of closing traffic & inconveniencing working people they should just note it down the calendar. Anybody who might want to observe it could do it on their own. This event produced the WORST of the Filipinos. Only the Billionaire Crooks should celebrate it, not the typical everyday Filipino.

1/3 OMG! Here it is again. 29th anniversary of EDSA people power revolution! Itong revolution na to ang nangangako ng magandang kinabukasan ng bawat mamamayan. OMG, is it really a genuine rev whereby the people have the power to re-place rotten & corrupt socio-political system with a good one? The discredited Marcos regime was replaced with TWA regime of Cory, but what happened? Borloloy transactions abound, Kamag-anak Inc. was born, Pinas ship started sinking. FVR after TWA, then Erap took over the helm wherein 'mga garapal' becoming ever more emboldened.

2/3 Pinas becomes a laughing stock. A lot of anomalies keep filing up under Gloria. Now the 2nd generation of Aquino (PNoy) at the Palace whose 'tuwid na daan' is only more of a political gimmick than reality. Buti pa nga si Hudas meron konsensya, pero 'tong Benigno III ay parang si Pilato ay palaging naghuhugas ng kamay, ayaw tumang-gap ng 'mia culpa' in every govt operation kung bolilyaso! Saan kayo makakita na ang isang suspendidong kumander (Purisima) ay pinatrabaho pa ng presidente? Napakabaluk-tot talaga ng ating Kumander Wangwang.

3/3 But where are the major players of EDSA? Cory's dead. the political cardinal and persona non grata (Sin) is dead. Honasan whose capitalization of EDSA made him senator. As a skinny soldier he used to harp on reforming the armed forces. Did he? But what is he doing in the senate? Just sitting pretty and gaining weight, waiting for PDAF windfall? Tandang ENRILE? A protege of FM but betrayed him after he and FVR were about to be arrested rationalizing FM cheated Cory in snap elec. Now it turned out this 'hero' (Tanda) is also a cheating VILLAIN waiting for his 'thy kingdom come.' Gen. Tabako? Disillusioned with Edsa with zero relevance. OMG! LINK

Another supposedly self-proclaimed hero is Jejomar BINAY. He was with TWA regime all the way as he was being partly created and supported by Tita Cory. Just brandi-shing an Uzi submachinegun in the streets of Manila during the 2nd day of EDSA (if I recall it correctly) had made him a hero. Tsk tsk tsk! Binay together with Saguisag was a lawyer of MABINI, purporting to supposedly champion and defend those Marcos' martial law detainees, when in fact most of those are communists. The 'smoking gun' is evol-ving about this champion of pol. prisoners. His secret per-sonal agenda for self-aggrandizement and being rotten to the core is now being unraveled & disclosed. Ang gagara-pal ng ating mga 'Edsa heroes.' Mga buwaya pala!

Respect the Shrine of Mother Mary in Edsa. Thieves should not go to Edsa to protest against Aquino and request him to resign. That is an insult. Hypocrites and corrupts should avoid themselves going for a protest against honest people. shame on you thieves!. Respect the Place.

Twice the Heroes—the SAF 44 Who Lost Lives in Mamasapano

The 44 members of the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (SAF) who were brutally killed in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25, 2015 are heroes twice over: first, they paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country; second, they exposed for all to see, the dangers the country will face if the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is passed. Published 2/15/2015


No More Bangsamoro, Period!

With each passing day, it is becoming increasingly clear that the idea of a Bangsamoro is a bad idea. Just as the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD) spearheaded by former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was a bad idea (and declared unconstitutional in 2008 by the Supreme Court). Just as the failed Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) during the 1990s was a bad idea. Published 2/8/2015
After the Mamasapano Massacre, Plans for a Bangsamoro Must Be Scrapped

What happened in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25 is a "game changer"—make no mistake about it. Reality as we saw it before this event is not the reality we see now...everything is different; everything has "changed. When the Philippine National Police's (PNP) elite team known as the Special Action Force or SAF set out to arrest Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan, it had actionable intelligence that the Malaysian fugitive was hiding in the town of Mamasapano. Marwan, an expert bomb maker, is a core member of the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah. Published 1/31/2015
President Aquino Should Fly to Saudi Arabia and Pay His Last Respects to King Abdullah

Presidents and prime ministers, kings and queens; from Prince Charles and Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain, President Francois Hollande of France, President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and many other heads of state from all corners of the globe have gone or are headed to Riyadh to pay their respects to the late King Abdullah. Even U.S. President Barack Obama cut short his state visit to India to fly to Saudi Arabia. Published 1/27/2015
After the Pope's Visit: What We Filipinos Now Must Do

We put on a good show for Pope Francis. He loved it; we loved it; the world loved it. Now the long and painful task of bringing about the changes the pope asked for begins. Start with the Philippine Catholic Church. It should refocus its efforts towards the poor. As we wrote in previous editorials, many priests and bishops see themselves as members of the rich and privileged class. They feel more at home in country clubs and dining in expensive restaurants, than they do helping the poor who live in the squatter communities that dot most cities in the Philippines. Published 1/22/2015
Pope Francis Admonishes Pinoys to End Scandalous Inequalities

We had a feeling this was coming. In his first major speech in the Philippines, Pope Francis called for an end to 'scandalous inequalities' in the country. And what better example of a scandalous inequality is there than that a preposterously ridiculous wedding of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera which was officiated by 8 bishops and 7 priests. In addition, this crass wedding featured a 12-foot high wedding cake, a 2-million-peso wedding gown with an exaggeratedly long train that seemed to go on forever...you get the picture. Published 1/16/2015
An Open Letter to Pope Francis; Please Read It Before Coming to the Philippines

Dear Pope Francis, your much anticipated visit to the Philippines is just a few days away. We expect that you will have been adequately briefed about the Philippines by the time you arrive. However, there might be a few things your Vatican handlers might have missed—or intentionally "forgot" to mention to you so we hope this letter reaches you in time for your historic visit. Before anything else, welcome! Published 1/9/2015
