That’s not a negotiation, that’s surrender

Yesterday, the Government offered the largest Islamic militant group in the Philippines the possibility of autonomy in exchange for laying down their arms.

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!

So, after almost 30 years of war and struggle we’re just gonna give them want they wanted in the first place? That sounds more like a conditional surrender than a peace negotiation. To rebels! Rebels who have done nothing, I repeat NOTHING good to the stability of the economy and national standing.

Has the government conveniently forgotten how these Islamic extremist groups have been the reason the Philippines earned the embarrassing title “Kidnapping Capital of the World”?

Has the government conveniently forgotten how many people these Islamic extremist groups have killed?

Has the government conveniently forgotten how many families have been displaced because these Islamic extremist groups destroyed their homes for no other reason than to forward their agenda?

Has the government conveniently forgotten how many womens lives these Islamic terrorist groups destroyed with rape?

In an ideal world the wicked are punished and the good are rewarded.

We should hunt down these bastards into their filthy holes and kill every single raping, murdering one of them! Not give them what they want!

It’s like a fucking a reward for being terrorists:
“Oh, good job on killing at least 150,000 people in the last 30 or so years. Here’s some land you can run freely run so you can train more people to kill more people to pressure us into giving you more land.”

or

“A terrorist! Please steal every piece of property I own. And feel free to rape my wife, kidnap and sell my children and kill me afterwards”

(That’s apparently a peaceful negotiation)

It’s absolutely stupid.

Not to mention that the MILF  was merely a splinter group that seceded from the MNLF which already has the ARMM, and look how well that worked out. Noynoy himself called the region a ‘failed experiment’ well, what the fuck does he think he’s doing now?!

I agreed with Aquino on the point that the ARMM was indeed a failed experiment. it was nothing but a hive of private armies and mob mentalities conveniently tucked under the blanket of sub-state autonomy

When PGMA proposed virtually the same thing almost three years ago with the Bangsamoro Ancestral Land Agreement it was meet with violent derision and eloquent argumentation for nationalism and so forth. We need to hear the same again because another sub-state deal isn’t going to work.

The sub-state tactic was not only tried by the Philippines in the Mindanao situation but also by Serbia in their territorial dispute with their version of the MILF (though they weren’t Islamic). Needless to say the sub-state failed and the fighting is worse than ever.

And just recently the MILF (again) as if following tradition, ousted one of their commanders who then formed his own splinter group who the government will probably be fighting with for another 30 years after they surrender autonomy to terrorists. Is anyone seeing a pattern here? You should because it’s bleeding obvious.

Why don’t we just give them the entire island of Mindanao and get it over with, that’s what they’ll be asking for in a few years anyway.

Note: The majority of the population in Mindanao is Catholic. Even in their own supposed lands they are a minority. Is the government really going to hand over power simply to the noisiest and most troublesome group (no matter how small) just because they’re a band of murdering rapists who think with their dicks and never with an ounce of common sense, logic, or intelligence?

(They’ve done it before, why stop now?)

  1. “The majority of the population in Mindanao is Catholic.” – Yes that’s true for the remaining 5 regions.

    But except ARMM (ironically means “Autonomous” Region in Muslim Mindanao), where people are predominantly Muslims. Even I have been to Maguindanao (which is a very big province) once and even seen the very big property of the Ampatuans. They have a very different culture there. Like I’ve been to another country.

    I was once been told that fights (involving high-powered weapons) happen even between fellow Muslims and the Army are just looking to their melees.
