Breaking news - Tour bus held hostage


Recommended Posts

And politicians not to be seen or heard, except for the DOT Secretary (a few hours ago) who explained that this incident will have no effect on tourism to the Philippines - the issue should not be "overblown"...

I bet the Koreans will not be so crazy about visiting the Philippines now.

It's NOT their fault. All countries must send the Philippines a few hundred million dollars to upgrade their equipment and training.   <sarcasm>

Is this still a misunderstanding? When does something go from a misunderstanding to a crime in 'filipino mentality'?

Won't effect tourism ???, seem to remember years ago tourists getting killed in bus in Egypt certainly effected their tourism for a while.

This tragic on a few levels. My heart goes out to the families of the victims (and survivors, if any!).

 

On a lighter note, the peso is sure to rise a bit in the near future.

Just check out the cowardly police (special forces I suspect) - cannot even enter that bus, and in the meanwhile some hostages may be waiting for first aid: drama or comedy?

Lets see International News!!!!!! People see the PNP abuse prisoners. Korean Killed shot PNP no clue. Bus Hostage and 15 dead. Bus Crash kills Iranian Nursing students. Then the natural disasters that goverment can not help their own people. No to long ago LCPL Smith wrongly convicted of crime and held prisoner. hmmmm Sounds like a huge mess.

If you're ever in a hostage situation, don't pin your hopes on the SWAT team rushing is as they can't even figure out how to open the door and it's been 20 minutes.

Yeah, pretty disgusting to laugh at this, I think it was the female reporter too. Also sounds like the last automatic barrage hit a civilian bystander. After a 10 hour siege can you imagine any civilians in range in the US?
