Skip to comments.Closest U.S. Ally in Asia Caves to Muslim Radicals After Massacre- Grants Amnesty
Posted on 01/27/2014 6:02:49 AM PST by lowbridge
On September 9, 2013, a radical Islamic extremist group known as the Moro National Liberation Front, whose territory is on the northern portion of the Southern most Island in the Philippines, Mindanao, stormed the municipal capital in the city of Zamoanga and raised their flag at city hall. They were proclaiming ownership of the city, which theyd decided, themselves, that they would now own back on August 12 of 2013.
As you might imagine, the Philippine Government did not take kindly to the radicals proclaiming the city to be theirs and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) were sent in. What resulted was a standoff which lasted 19 days and saw the displacement of more than 100,000 civilians who were driven from their homes, neighborhood by neighborhood, as the terrorists marched through reeking havoc, and the deaths of several civilians and terrorists. An already struggling third world economy within the city was brought to a standstill and the airport was closed.
In the end, the terrorists were allowed to retreat, though some were taken into custody, and the AFP and PNP went their separate ways, and the citizens returned to a further disabled city, both physically and prosperity wise.
This is not new for the Mindanao region of the Philippines. Several radical Islamic groups possess territory on the astoundingly beautiful island inhabited by some of the friendliest people in the world. However, due to the radical Islamic presence, the portion of the country suffers more corruption, poverty and conflict than the rest of the country, which is saying a lot as the entire country suffers enough from these issues.
Many would say that the main problem is the Philippine Governments seeming desire to negotiate with the terrorists more so than to simply eradicate

Been nice knowing you, Philippines.
Nice call!..It was the hopped up Moros, that led the US Army to develop the .45 handgun..nothing else at the time had stopping power..
no, wreaking havoc.

How strong could abbu sayeff be if the Philippines was armed ?
THAT, I think is the problem
Abbu Sayeff works (as all cowardly, satanic muzzies do) by using fear to control and dominate their prospective victims
There is a GREAT national pride among the Filipino's and I personally believe an armed citizenry would be an advantage to diseminating corruption and quelling uprisings.
Don’t count ‘em out.
Could have been worse. At least he got a homonym. It could have been “wrecking havoc”. ;->
Spell czech is knot yore friend!
Thanks Knarf. How did you like those pictures I e mailed to you? See you in awhile bro.
When you are the “friendliest people in the world”, you make yourselves a target for the radicals who know that they will have an easy go of it. That’s exactly why we need the right to bear arms ourselves and not to have those rights taken away.
I just can’t understand the mindwarp the anti-gunners are in when they think that “we all can just get along if we’ll just give up our guns”. There are evil people out there who will exert their power and control over us if they’re not held in check. And today, those who would do so are the ones in charge of our government.

ONLY if you proofread...
I ‘sware(sic)’ it has changed a There to Their or vice versa on me BUT then again it didn’t correct sware so....
I do know that I have referred to GHW Bush and his push for NWO and my completed text would read GHW Bush was an early backer of NOW (which also may be true) BUT I never would have written that, so that leaves me to believe that Spell Check was ‘doing its thing’.
I'm hoping for a year, but America is gearing up (IMO) to put a hammer down on outgoing ex patriation. (just my opinion)
Having been born a few years after that insurrection (in spite of what my children believe), I have only read accounts of the action.
There were confirmed reports of US troops injured/killed by machete wielding Moros AFTER they'd been shot several times..hence the .45
So much cowardice in response to outrageous Muslim atrocities being perpetrated world wide.
Well, when posting from my kindle “autocorrect” is my mortal enemy! some of the things it comes up with boggles the mind. If you want a good laugh, go to the icanhascheezburger website and lookup the “autocowrecks” page. Good stuff there.
In my five years here I have yet to see a Muslim. I am sure that there is a mosque in Cebu city, just as in many US cities, but one must realize that the Philippines is extremely Roman Catholic.
The problem with the western Mindanao area is that the government allowed an autonomous Muslim region to be established. They will continue to be a problem there, until
the government decides that enough is enough.
Lack of alcohol in the optic system, perhaps?
So, you think we might do like the Soviet Union did in East Germany, put up a fence, not to keep people out , but to keep people in. Communism in America, is coming on even faster than I thought.
I'm personally involved with A situation that lends credence to that opinion.
I see. Maybe this is something we need to talk about in person, not e mail, not by phone and not here. See you next year bro. It really IS turning into the Soviet Union. It took about 70 years for the Russians to throw off communism. Sorry to say, but you and I will not live long enough to see Americans throw off communism. Meanwhile, my honey is getting her pig farm going, for obvious reasons.
