Postcript to Understanding Faurat: When will Counter-Terrorist elements learn?

In the 1st part of this series, we noted that terrorists wage a world war under the guise of Islam. That the war they are waging is more secular, ideological than religious.

In the 2nd part of the this series, we tried to expound in greater length how progressive movements in some parts of the world in the past and today are similar in many ways to that of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria as well as to many other Islamic movements that we labeled as the “Jamaat” groups espousing not jihad or holy war but faurat which stands for revolution and is not a concept propounded by the Holy Qur’an.

We attempted to establish that the problem in many cases is that most of us at the receiving end of terrorist assaults are just patently and totally helpless…

Understanding Faurat – Muslims, Revolution

2nd of a series

Towards new doctrines on standards in engagement

In the 1st part of this series, we expounded on the dearth of the true Islamic component within the Islamic State, many other terrorist groups (Mideast, South Asian, ASEAN or African, Mediterranean models).

In that discussion, we arbitrarily assign the Jamaat – or the movement of liberation type of template. This model has more commonality with Marxist, Leninist, Nietzsche, or other similar left-of-center political ideologies or Nazi Ultra-Rightist that struggles to appear to be from the other end of the spectrum.

Russian, Chinese, German, Libyan, Cuban, Cambodian, other models in revolution, have many aspects in common with the mold however it can be said that much of the intellectual aspects of the political myth of the revolution needed to be adapted to the specific environment. In a more contentious manner, we can almost say that the myth is…

What is a Sustainable Remedy to Terrorism?

France just suffered from deadly terrorist attack. The policemen and civilian victims were struck with high powered weapons by terrorists claiming to be ISIS but that authorities are saying are members of and trained by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Whatever the affiliation of those terrorists, it does not matter. What matters is the question that had been ringing in our ears for more than a decade now: Does the Military and law enforcement need to redesign, re-engineer their existing war and peacekeeping method?  Most certainly, they do.

Both military and police science are incontrovertibly applying biblical, Judaic, or else Confucian as well as variants of the marriage of eastern and western strategy and tactics in the conduct of warfare or militia work.

The question is, are…

Sharing Information A Very Difficult Process

January 28, 2015 at 3:43 pm (Uncategorized)

The Center for CEOs, Executive Safety

French President François Gérard Georges Nicolas Hollande, France’s security workers, police and the people of that bastion of Liberté could possibly be in big trouble.

François Hollande

But they will not be alone. The United States, Philippines along with a large chunk of Asia, Israel (an almost 100% likely target always), among several other highly vulnerable countries will be targeted. In the recent attacks in Paris’ (multiple attacks against Charlie Hebdo offices), the Al Qaeda supposedly takes responsibility for the attack. This is mostly just interlocking with the current wave of Iraq-Syria Islamic State group’s highly organized and determined terror acts fueling a vision of a world war.

The Al Qaeda, dominantly Sunni but on many occasions accommodating members of the other faction of Islam – the Shiites – is nearly in a state of collapse even if its remnants are still mostly burning with the same fervor and dedication with…

Uninvisible, Unsilent World War

The forthcoming rally in France will be unprecedented. While past cooperation between erstwhile enemies have taken place mostly in neutral territory, the coming of the leadership of Spain to France to show solidarity against terror and whatever else that is behind and propelling it, is a great historical milestone.

History will show how deep the enmity that came to develop between France and Spain in the old times.

The so-called usurpation of powers, treachery, vengeance, mutually assured destruction between the two former royalties spanned centuries – even millennia.

Today, with the biggest combine in the world – the United Nations – not having any immediate solution to the uninvisible, unsilent emerging world war – that is actually a proxy war openly featuring the ISIS or ISIL and such insignificant, hitherto obscure groups like Boko Haram, former enemies embrace each other as a…

People Suffering from Mindanao Hostilities

October 8, 2009 at 11:45 am (Uncategorized)

Report from Mindanao

Bombing in Basilan

On October 7, 2009, a bomb exploded at Roxas St., Barangay Malins, Lamitan, Basilan. The suspected Improvised Explosive Device (IED) explosion resulted in injuries of two persons: Ester Columbres, 62 years old, and Amboy Kalbi, 33 years old, both married and both residents of Lamitan Municipality, Basilan. The responding policemen promptly brought the injured victims to the Isabela City Hospital for immediate medical treatment. Investigators recovered from the crime scene several assorted nails, plastic and a can, believed to have been a part of IED that was placed inside garbage bin. Since no one claimed the bomb attack, authorities still have not identified the suspect or suspects in the said crime.

IDPs in Mindanao growing in numbers

Report from Mindanao

ASG Fierce Attack on Soldiers’ Camp

 

A few days following the government offensive during Ramadan against the Abu Sayyaf, Commander Habier Malik and the Abu Sayyaf Group threatened JIHAD against the government. Malik warned civilians in the vicinity of Camp General Teodoro Bautista to leave the area. Many residents living near the military camp were evacuated to different evacuation centers.

On October 6, 2009, the Muslim rebels / terrorists made true of their threat. A very large force of ASG and suspected members of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), mounted a fierce attack against government troops based in Camp General Teodoro Bautista in Brgy. Bus-bus, Jolo, Sulu and another force at Jolo Airport, by artillery shelling with mortar and M203 rocket launchers and high powered rifles.

Fortunately for the soldiers, the PNP augmentation troops stationed at the Provincial Capitol, Patikul, Sulu and the at Jolo Airport, immediately responded to the first burst of fire and engaged the attacking armed elements and were able to repulse the same. The terrorist elements retreated to vegetated area surrounding Camp Bautista and Jolo Airport.

As of this writing, there are no reported casualties from the government side, but undetermined casualties from the group of the ASG and suspected MNLF component. However, thousands of displaced persons are suffering from the conflict and the continuing hostilities. Aside from these, bombing attacks happen nearly every day in Sulu. As of the last count, US soldiers and local military as well as many civilians have already died in the daily attacks by the terrorists.

Neither Threaten Nor Ever Twiddle With Might

August 14, 2008 at 1:10 am (Mindanao Peace, Uncategorized, War in Mindanao) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

You will never understand why there is a war in Mindanao. The both sides blame people like MILF Commander Umbracato. Now while Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) are negotiating a peace agreement in Mindanao, government is waging almost a full-scale war against their counterpart? GRP and MILF were supposed to sign an agreement at Marriot Hotel, Selangur, Putrajaya, Malaysia but Supreme Court issued an injunction and aborted said signing.

Supreme Court deeply embarrassed a lot of people. The United States of America Ambassador Kristie Kenney of the US Embassy in the Philippines, Organization of the Islamic Conference Ambassador Sayed Elm Masry, Japan Ambassador Makoto Katsura, and Australian Ambassador Roderick Smith were in Malaysia to be witnesses to the signing.

An international diplomatic faux pas. And the anti-Glorias are demanding the axing of the head of Hermogenes Esperon. Needless to say Supreme Court and the enemies of Gloria Arroyo had a different agenda. They want the talks and entire process scuttled. And after that, they want more. They want an impeachment. They want people power. They want to rule in a new government they will establish. They want the drugs. They want the money from kidnapping. They want the money robbed in banks and simple, helpless withdrawers. They want the protection skim from smuggling. A law enforcement Agency head who is secretly one of them, is a silent coordinator for their stupid bunch. He collects from Eighty up to Two Hundred Million a month (!) in these times of poverty and want, to live with them in grandeur and great comfort. The fucking corrupt want the country to die and Filipinos to wallow in abject suffering in this dying carcass of a nation.

The nincompoop politicians from the  opposition tell everyone and sundry that they are studying their options over whether or not to support MILF in the war against the government. Studying options my ass! They have already determined to conduct a new wave of killings, bombings, rallies, ambushes, crime operations, hate and black propaganda campaigns to pursue Gloria’s impeachment, fight cha cha and to ostensibly to kill Gloria’s chances of running again in 2010 nor extending her presidency beyond that period. The fools!

Moreover in the separate assessment provided here, MILF and political opposition will not be able to join forces against the government. It is like mixing oil with water. The belief is that the forthcoming destabilization actions will put an incredible amount of salt on the already painful injury of the Government and MILF following the killed MOA signing on the Ancestral Domains claims between GRP and MILF. The US Ambassador, OIC Ambassador, Japanese Ambassador, Australian Ambassador, were humiliated in Malaysia for standing in support of that event.

The politicians and for-hire Supreme Court might not know they are playing with fire. And that certainly it is a big, big fire. At the end of the game, the political opposition, Justices, the civil society whom blogger Ezky calls New Civil Society of Lesbians and One Vacla, the left and right, and their allies inside the government feeding them morsels of information on when to make their sabotage moves, despicable destabilization actions and operations, will be flushed out and could be hung for their obnoxious treatment of the peace talks in Mindanao. In the end, it might not just be the dustbin of history where they will find themselves buried, but rather more immediately, six feet below the ground or scattered in the wastelands for vultures to feed on.
