Rebels or Terrorists?

Recently, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front has been involved in a lot of negative events in the island of Mindanao, Philippines. Burning of houses, murder of civilians and ambush attacks against the government soldiers. All these while the peace talks with the GRP (Government of the Republic of the Philippines) is happening. Unbelievable!

And now that the dialogue and negotiation had been suspended by the government, MILF continues their operation in Mindanao and this time snatching sacks of rice donated by the World Food Program for the people affected by the conflict in the said region!

What is wrong with these people? Why can’t the government or the supreme court or whoever has the authority call these bunch of bozos TERRORISTS? Is it because the group hadn’t made a ‘demand’ yet? Grrr!

Here’s the news about the latest operation of MILF:

MILFs snatch rice for Maguindanao

ABOUT 20 suspected Moro Islamic Liberation Front guerrillas stopped an Army truck in Mamasapano, Maguindanao Tuesday and stole 60 bags of rice donated by the World Food Program.

The rebels led by Commander Bonnie Ayunan of the MILF’s 105th Base Command loaded at gun point the rice shipment on two handtractors with trailers and fled, the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Police Regional Office said.

ARMM police director Chief Supt. Joel R. Goltiao said the rice cargo was intended for the Mamasapano local government for distribution to evacuees.

The evacuees are the tens of thousands of civilians in Mindanao who were forced to leave their homes following the spate of MILF atrocities which triggered a massive government operation against the raiders.

Barangay councilmen Nasser Mapangal and Udasan Bundula said they were threatened with death by the guerrillas if they resisted.

Goltiao said follow-up operations are still underway to recover the bags of rice and get the rebels.
