Willful Ignorance

Apr 13 | By David_Roxas | Views: 568 | Comments: 8
I have surmised and will continue to believe that terrorism is the number one threat in the Philippines.  Whether it's the communist NPA or any number of Muslim groups, terrorism is here and the Philippines needs to wake up to that dreadful reality.  Especially now that ISIS is in the Philippines and has been here for quite some time.  The fiasco this week in Bohol where the US Embassy issued a warning and the Philippines completely dismissed it and stuck their heads in the sand is beyond simple stupidity.  It is a willful ignorance of the facts and this ignorance puts everyone in danger. 


The fact that Duterte is in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, both financiers of ISIS and therefore of terrorism in the Philippines is very disturbing.  Saudi Arabia is not going to help with any peace process in Mindanao and they sure aren't going to end the abuse of OFWs.  Nonbelievers are "kafir" and they can be treated in the most despicable ways even unto death.

The Bohol fighting between government troops and suspected Abu Sayyaf men erupted on Tuesday a day after Armed Forces Chief Eduardo Año said that the military did not see any terror threat in the Philippines despite the recent warning by the US Embassy in Manila to Americans to avoid going to Central Visayas. 

“We have to be vigilant. We would like to encourage the public to report suspicious people, suspicious objects or circumstances so the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) can take immediate, fast counter actions,” Año told reporters during a pre-departure press briefing of President Duterte at the Davao International Airport on Monday. 

“But right now, we don’t see any terror threat,” the military chief added. 

President Duterte likewise downplayed the US travel warning, saying the government could handle any terror threats. 

“Kaya natin ang threat of terrorism. Why should you worry about the (US) embassy? I should be worrying about my country, not the (American embassy),” the President said. 

In its travel advisory on Sunday, the US Embassy cautioned Americans against traveling to tourist resorts in Cebu and Bohol in Central Visayas, citing “unsubstantiated yet credible information” that terrorists might kidnap foreigners there.

How is it that neither the chief of the armed forces nor Duterte didn't "see any terror threat" when both the US Embassy and the chief of the PNP confirmed that there is a threat? The Philippine Army has an intel problem.  They cant even see what is so plain to the entire world.

How can Duterte be so blithe regarding the threat warning issued by the US embassy? 

 "Why should you worry about the (US) embassy? I should be worrying about my country, not the (American embassy),” the President said." 

He should be worrying about his country.  He should be worrying about the threat that ISIS poses to the stability of his country. When the US Embassy issues a threat warning he should not brush it off as being of no substance. With information drawn from the CIA, the NSA, and numerous other black-ops organisations US intel is highly reliable. 


It's not just the US embassy that recognises the threat ISIS poses to the Central Visayas.

In 2014 Barack Obama made the grave mistake of underestimating ISIS as the JV team but he was wrong as they have proven to be resilient and effective killers. They have stated their goals for all to see.

ISIS makes no secret of its ultimate ambition: A global caliphate secured through a global war

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/12/11/middleeast/isis-syria-iraq-caliphate/ 

ISIS is in the Philippines and they are not going away. Until the president and the army take their heads out of the sand this threat will continue to grow.  They won't stop until they are dead or they have won. Send the whole army into Mindanao and destroy them all before it's too late.

Listen, and understand. ISIS is out there. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

@David, Come on get it right!!! LOL. If you listen to filipinos tell it the cause of ALL the crime and problems in the philippines are drug addicts. I mean they act like they could not leave their houses after dark because of the drug addicts and dealers. Odd thing about that. The discos and videokes were always very busy pre duterte. I'm just waiting for duterte to label ASG, NPA, ISIS, MILF, MNLF, JI all drugs users@David, Come on get it right!!! LOL.

Here is a Filipino who is thinking clearly about this whole situation unlike Duterte and the Chief of the Armed Forces who say "What terror threat?"

A few things missing in that story. They say the bandits wounded 10 troops then they say the bandits killed 15 troops, which is it? I also noticed that they did not say how many bandits were wounded or killed. Sounds like the AFP lost another battle to bandits don't it? The bandits were very brazen to come in so close to attack? More bull shit from the AFP. Closing in and getting close is very common in battles like that.A few things missing in that story.

That story is from last year and is not related to what is happening this week. It just shows that Abu Sayyaf gets high on shabu before they go raiding.

Take a look at this time line of the events in Bohol. The AFP know Abu Sayyafs movements on April 6 but the AFP Chief said he didn't see a terror threat. He is lying. http://news.abs-cbn.com/...-abu-sayyaf-in-boholTake a look at this time line of the events in Bohol.

What really gets me is that the whole we Muslims & terrorists have been chilling out in the same area for quite a while killing foreigners and the Philippines hasn't done shit about it. The Philippines as I see it would be a terrorists wet dream. No one cares, no one will tell, no one wants to know. The greatest country ever for terrorists to spread. The whole while duterte is pro Muslim and pro terrorist. Give it time for martial law to sink in, and children will still be playing in the street till 2am.What really gets me is that the whole we Muslims & terrorists have been chilling out in the same area for quite a while killing foreigners and the Philippines hasn't done shit about it.
