And just in case we win dapat may follow thru ang gobyerno sa area na yun, kung hindi meron at meron ding susunod na ganun din ang takbo ng utak kung ang problema hindi na sosolve.
    Regarding field intelligence, well...the PA Special Forces should have been briefed properly regarding terrain, number of enemy forces (hard or soft targets), method of extraction, etc.

    Sadly, it was amateur night for their commanding officers.

    PNoy better do something fast (read: MEASURED RETALIATION) because this will test his mettle as Commander-in-Chief of the AFP.

    You gotta wonder, no one, not even Muslim civic groups are coming out to protest the killing of these soldiers.

    Jeez. Why are we even talking peace with the MILF? For me, you can only talk peace when you have the upper hand against the enemy. That way, you have more leverage in setting the terms. You can never negotiate peace based on a stalemated conflict.

    Saw an article on the Philippine Star website where it said "Aquino will not declare an 'all out war' with the MILF over the incident".

    If he doesn't do anything, even a measured response versus the MILF, he'll be perceived as weak and unworthy of being a commander-in-chief by ordinary soldiers.

    Your soldiers have died fighting, Mr. President. They would've died for nothing if all you do is discuss what happened in Al Barqa, Basilan by committee. Whatever medals you pin on their coffins won't mean s#it if you don't handle this right.

    Di kaya natatakot siya kasi pag ginera ang mga yan baka magpadala ng mga terrorista sa manila para mag retaliate? Mall and bus bombings?
