uh ho ..

you never heard of throats being slit in the Wild parts of PH ? or shooting so common enough that some shooters accept responsibility for A crime,but deny B crime, so the cops have to let them go, as the A crime hasn't been processed YET

if you are out of sync, let is slide ..

back to the subject

I saw a news article where some of the hostage takers went and introduced themselves properly to the AFP .. and then walked back to join their 'comrades' ..

AFP pulled one of the Scout Ranger Battalions, combating NPA here in Negros Occidental, yesterday. It's been sent to reinforce troops in Zamboanga!
Let's hope NPA is unable to take advantage!

The wife talked to her aunt again last night. Gunfire and explosions were worse yesterday, but they are still safe. Most of the other relatives in Sta. Catalina were able to escape, but a few had to stay with the elders, who are too old to be moved.

Everyone is just hunkered down trying to stay safe.

YAkc130

The Hotel you stayed in was The Lantaka. It is on the water and only a short distance from where the fighting is.

Do not forget that the US soldiers are there to train and give logistic help. They are not there to fight.

This invasion has not held the front page of the Manila newspapers. The Pork Barrel saga dominates the headlines.

If you give these people a foot they will want a yard. Zamboanga City has already been lost to the Muslims. The Christians are slowly being pushed into the outer baranguys. In the end all will have to convert. They will not assimilate. cheers

Here's the latest on flights out of there if you dont already have the info:


MANILA, Philippines–The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines has suspended Zamboanga Airport operations from September 10-12, 2013 due to the current security situation in Zamboanga City.
Because of this, the following Cebu Pacific flights are cancelled from September 10-12, 2013:
5J 851/852 Manila-Zamboanga-Manila
5J 855/856 Manila-Zamboanga-Manila
5J 859/860 Manila-Zamboanga-Manila
5J 857/858 Manila-Zamboanga-Manila
5J 433/434 Cebu-Zamboanga-Cebu
5J 393/394 Davao-Zamboanga-Davao
5J 839/840 Zamboanga – Tawi-Tawi – Zamboanga
5J 845/844 Cagayan de Oro – Zamboanga – Cagayan de Oro
All CEB passengers affected by these cancellations may avail any of the following options: rebooking of flights for travel within 30 days from original departure date with no penalties, full travel fund or full refund. They may also reroute their flights to the nearest alternate station to Zamboanga.
Guests may call (02)7020-888 or (032)230-8888 for their preferred option, any time even after their flights.
CEB hopes for its guests’ understanding as this situation is beyond the airline’s control. CEB will continue to provide updates as soon as available.

Yeah. That's what my friend was told back in the 80's when he was there. That's where he got his combat "cherry" broken. Officially, that's why they are there. But bullets don't discriminate between "advisors" and combatants.

And you're right. It's the same elsewhere. Convert or die. I hear that from friends in other countries, and also from some of the Islamic people I work with here. Not as blunt, but the meaning is the same.

Religion of peace, my a**.

I think our boys are under orders not to fire unless fired upon. That said, I'll bet they are just looking for a stray bullet to give reason...

I observed an unusually high level of AFP units on the move in and around B.C. today! Most likely a result of reshuffling to cover for the reassignment of the local Scout Ranger Bn to Zamboanga!

It's a shame for the country that something this "small" can throw the gov't and military a curve, and create so much turmoil.

And when you think about how many aircraft the Air Force actually has...

It's really sad that they have lost the means to protect themselves adequately.
