More than the lack of means, it more lack of guts and political will to do what should have been done long ago..

When you realise how much money the Govt is bleeding on various 'businessmen' taking cuts, I bet not more than 10 % of all revenue even reach the govt ..

After all, show me one senator who didn't benefit from the current govt, previous govt, all the way to Marcos ? And all of them either directly or indirectly make mega bucks on deals ..

Yah, starting from Malampaya, if only a reasonable amount of $ reaches the govt, they will have more than enough $ to make PAF an Airforce- instead of a Paper Air Force ..

Ever wonder why they go asking for bids for used UH1s ? Apparently because they can't afford new stuff. Have you seen what the Presidential fleet has ? 3 X S76, 1X S70, and more modern ... 412s .. and more ..

ah, well ..

The reason behind the fighting in Zamboanga is that the peace process is indeed working. The MILF split from the MNLF, partly as they wanted dialogue with the government, and now they look to take charge of the new semi-autonomous entity. Now the remaining MNLF are split into three factions and the faction that operates in Central Mindanao is also pro-peace (hence the BIFF, a small unit, split from them).

Misuari is now feeling isolated and if the MILF deliver real peace & development through the Bangsamoro initiative then he loses credibility and support. Hence his input into the Sabah conflict and his claims on Palawan. He wants to be seen as the driver for independence, whereas the MILF are looking to remain within the Philippines.

Basically the peace process has done much for reducing the influence of those who want a military solution and outright succession; hence the attempt now to derail this process.

This isn't a war with nice neat front-lines along which you can array your forces.

They should have kept that a secret now these guys are moving out, LOL what blunders, their operations should be kept within house but it was headlines.

Would love to see those guys swoop in and save the day but suspect that somehow in some way that isn't a good idea. Could just see the PI becoming the new frontline in the anti-US jihad...so I'm thinking if these guys want the option of disappearing into the jungle maybe its not a bad thing. Hunt em down later out of the spotlight.

[QUOTE=ecureilx;1691001][quote=joenasia;1690697]

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 ..

Ahhh now I get it!!! Thanks for the insight! Of course not all are in touch as yourself! Some of us have friends in that area with agenda other than quoting news from tv or newspaper. You just never know! Is good forums as this. Insight into opinions and attitudes. A place to align, to find like minds or to get informed via arm chair quarterbacks! So I think out of "sync" and " letting slide" is curious for those who are with an agenda and ideology that refuses to let slide! Some quote and theorize and some aid and abet. You never know.... You just never know who is in or out of sync!!!

NOW BACK TO THE NEWS!!!!!
