In a word, Good! It's about time someone took the bull by the horns. Tit for tat doesn't work, so wipe them out.

 

Tully is going to have to double up on his blood pressure meds though.

FIFTY-ONE BATTALIONS - the biggest military deployment in Philippine history according to the AFP chief.

 

The world's leading authority on the Philippines and Duterte, had this to say not long ago:

"While yesterday's attack was no doubt meant to be personal and to send a message to President Duterte, He will not allow that to draw him into an all out war against this group. That is what they want him to do and if he were to over react, it would only benefit the terrorist groups and President Duterte knows this."

"Will president Duterte "step up" military efforts or get much "harsher" militarily if they continue to create havoc or when they set of another bomb in a public place (Which unfortunately will happen very soon)? Not according to what President Duterte has stated both now or in the past....It is clear that he understands the root cause of the conflict in Mindanao and prefers diplomacy over war."

"The old way, returning violence with violence in an effort to defeat terrorism never works. It only increases terrorism. The AFP, after many years of failing to put an end to groups like the NPA, Abu Sayyaf, and now the Maute Group by using military force alone has finally figured this out and will use a different strategy beginning right after the start of the new year. Instead of continuing the old way, they are going to start working hand in hand with government and non-government organizations to start improving infrastructure, building schools, medical facilities, and providing livelihood and job opportunities to residents in the conflict areas. The only way to defeat terrorism and put an end to the recruitment of the youth is for the government to do a better job at winning the hearts and minds of the people than the terrorist groups. Time will tell if this new strategy will work, but it is safe to say based on the current situation that the old way doesn't."

"Another thing to consider is that the new president is from Mindanao. He has Moro roots and understands the Moro struggle. For the first time, the people in the conflict areas have someone they feel they can trust in the capital. If there was ever a time to shift the strategy from strictly a military approach to a nation building approach, it is now. Only time will tell if it will succeed or not, but for the first time, the people in these regions have a strong sense of hope that it will and they are more likely to side with the government than at any other time in the past."

And nothing has changed since I made those posts. The majority of these troops will be involved in nation building projects and security. Did you really think they would mobilize 30,000+ troops and they all have combat roles?  All out war in Mindanao? The below statement that I made, and you also posted to attempt to discredit me, sums up exactly what is taking place today.

AFP chief to left: Nothing to fear in new military security plan
 
Posted at Jan 09 2017 05:54 PM
 
"The type of missions that will be conducted in Kapayapaan are to sustain the peace, ensure security and maintain public order," he said.
 
Año also reiterated the four strategic concepts of  the DSSP (Development Support and Security Plan)  Kapayapaan which are:
 
- sustained military operations to defeat the foreign and local terrorist organizations; 
- contribute to the promotion of peace;
- active support to law enforcement in war against drugs; and, 
- contribute to nation-building.
 
Año, who the leftist blamed for past atrocities against the Left, said he expects communist organizations to support the new military campaign plan.
 
"The leftists have nothing to worry about. In fact, we expect them to cooperate with us so that we can work out the attainment of a permanent and lasting peace," the AFP chief said.
 
"Our focus is to defeat terrorist groups like the Abu Sayyaf, Maute Group, foreign and terrorist groups and how we can contribute to nation-building. We are also supporting the PNP and other law enforcements on the war on drugs," he added.
 

 

 

KAPAYAPAAN | AFP new campaign intends to destroy terror groups
 
Posted by Lui Claudio on January 9, 2017 
 
In line with country’s roadmap to peace and security, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) aimed to defeat terrorist groups through its new campaign plan.
 
The campaign, dubbed as “Development Support and Security Plan (DSSP) Kapayapaan” is the continuation of Internal Peace and Security Plan (IPSP) Bayanihan that ended last year.
 
AFP Chief of Staff General Eduardo Año said, the strategic imperatives of the new campaign focuses on destroying terrorist groups like Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), Maute Group and Ansar Kilafa Philippines (AKP).
 
The campaign also gives emphasis to the peaceful settlement of peace-inclined threat groups like Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army/National Democratic Front (CPP/NPA/NDF), Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF).
 
In addition, the DSSP Kapayapaan aims to contribute to nation building, provides active support in Philippine National Police (PNP) and law enforcements in war on drugs.
 
“The expanded purpose of DSSP Kapayapaan is linked with national vision and development plans of the national government,” AFP Chief Año added.
 
AFP constantly intensified its operations against the Abu Sayyaf, Maute Group, and AKP by dedicating a special conference for the intelligence community.
 
The AFP also plans to ensure closer cooperation with the citizens through a program that will encourage them in reporting suspicious individuals and objects.
 
“Kailangan ma-monitor natin ito in coordination with the Anti-terrorism Council and other intelligence units of different branches of the government,” AFP Chief Año added.
 
AFP Chief Año said, they will take the opportunity to destroy terrorist groups in the country while it is free from any external threats.

The AFP chief has vowed to crush terrorist groups like Abu Sayyaf, Maute Group etcetera, within six months. You can't build lots of new infrastructure like bridges, hospitals etcetera, in six months. So it's quite obvious to anybody with common sense and intellectual honesty that the AFP chief is speaking of a MILITARY solution to the problem.

 

Watch the video I posted above - What infrastructure are they planning to build with those artillery cannons they're firing?

 

No mention of "building infrastructure" in this Philippine news article - just vows to "crush" terror groups militarily:

 

 

PH Military Aims to Crush Abu Sayyaf, Maute Group in 6 Months

MANILA, Philippines – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has set an ambitious campaign plan that aims to crush local terror groups particularly the Abu Sayyaf and Maute Group in the next 6 months. "The target of the Armed Forces chief of staff is [to finish them off in] the next 6 months. Let's see if we can do that in 6 months. It will be good. If not, we'll extend it until the end of the year," said Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Monday, January 9.

The way I read it is they intend to crush the terrorists MILITARILY within six months - THEN begin the process of building new infrastructure.

 

There's no way lots of bridges, hospitals, roads, schools etcetera can be built within six months. I sincerely doubt that most of those soldiers in those 51 battalions know the first thing about building bridges, hospitals and schools - and they damned sure couldn't do it all within six months.

 

So there's no way that "building infrastructure" could defeat the terrorists within six months.

Does that mean you ignore the articles that say they will be involved in nation building? Here is a quote from the article you linked to.

 

Without going into details, Lorenzana said there will be organizational changes and troop movements to allow a fresh approach to the problem that has plagued the country for decades. "We are going to do something new or innovative to finish this problem once and for all," said Lorenzana.

 

The combat missions will remain as they have been under the old mission, but in combination with nation building and other community projects that will be taking place simultaneously. They are not going to bomb this sh*t out of these groups and then rebuild everything after. That would only increase the terrorist threat in the country and result in more people sympathizing with them.

You cannot wipe out a guerrilla 'cause You cannot separate them from locals. Spanish tried it. USA tried it. That time they could use more strait methods, like kill whole villages, 'cause no media presence. But from VietNam on we have nice pics how napalm smells so good

          Police Officer Test

      How do you tell the difference between an Australian Police Officer, a
      Canadian Police Officer, an American Police Officer and a Scottish police
      officer?
      The answer is  found below.

      You're a policeman, on duty by yourself.
      You are walking on a  deserted street late at night.
      Suddenly, a man armed with a huge knife comes around the corner,  locks
      eyes with you and screaming something that sounds like  obscenities, raises
      the knife and lunges at you.
      You are carrying your truncheon and are an expert in using it.
      However, you have only a split second to react before he reaches you.

      QUESTION:  What do you do?

      ANSWERS:

      Australia:
      Firstly, the Officer must consider the man's human rights.
        1) Does the man look poor and/or oppressed?
        2) Is he newly arrived in  this country and does not yet understand the
      law?
      3) Is this really a  knife or a ceremonial dagger?
      4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
      5) Am I dressed provocatively?
      6) Could I  run away?
      7) Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife  out of his
      hand?
      8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?
      9)  Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind  of message does
      this send to society?
      10) Does he definitely want to  kill me or would he be content just to wound
      me?
      11) If I were to grab  his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab
      and kill me?
      12) If  I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if
      he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? 
      13) If I hurt him and  lose the subsequent court case, does he have the
      opportunity to sue  me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my
      family home?

      Canada:
      BANG !

      America:
      BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !
      BANG ! BANG  ! '
      Click'...Reload... BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is it just me or what is up with the mall keeping the temp so warm? The wife and I went there to go shopping today and there was no way I wanted to stick around with the temps being so warm  and apparently I was not the only one, the mall was almost devoid of people.

      My wife and I are listing our extra condo studio unit for sale, we bought this extra unit with the intent to move to Cebu full time but because of health issues, we will just continue our yearly stays, thus we do not need this extra unit which was intended for guests and storage, it is in Winland Tower C which is the newer tower of the two existing towers, so nothing fancy but inexpensive for a 30.27 sq meter unit, asking p1,600,000.00 CASH ONLY, that is less than half per sq meter of what most of the newer buildings going up are selling for. We will be in Cebu from February 24th to May 12th, so if anyone is interested and has cash for a quick sale then send me a message. The unit was freshly painted last May during our last stay and we left it empty.     pool area Building entrance Lobby Floor plan Photo taken standing just inside doorway, on the left is the door to the CR, to the right is the kitchen CR Kitchen Mountain view side or building so it is pretty cool in the unit most of the year, very little direct sunlight hits the unit itself. A/C hole and area to place bed etc. Shower and window to the hallway BBQ area and behind that glass is a gym with some equipment and CR's   Winland is far from top of the line but it is a decent place to live, which is close to just about all a person would need, many restaurants, banks, 7-11, coffee shops, laundry, internet cafe, McDo, Burger King, Jollibee, etc, walking distance to Robinson's Mall around 15 minutes, Osmena Circle, Ayala is close too, p60 or less by taxi or a 15 minute walk and all with low monthly and yearly costs. If a person wants top of the line then Winland will not be for them but many westerners live here and seem happy, why, because it cost so much less than many other places to live here and yet it is still very conveniently located.    Property taxes are around p3,000 a year, condo monthly dues are a little over p1,000 a month, so very inexpensive to upkeep.  Smart or Globe LTE pocket wifi works great in that unit if a person wants inexpensive internet for a full time or part time lifestyle like we do. Unit is wired for cable and telephone and has an intercom for the guard in the lobby to call up to the unit.  CASH ONLY, NO TERMS     Any other questions feel free to send me a message.
