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 below statement that I made, and you also posted to attempt to discredit me, sums up exactly what is taking place today.

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
