The terror attack in Marawi is unusual!
This is the alarming remark of a retired general who earned his stars after 20 years of fighting with insurgents and militants in Mindanao.
The retired general is a friend of Abe Purugganan, the military rebel that launched the bloodiest coup d’ etat in 1989 against Cory Aquino who after receiving amnesty, retired with the rank of a Colonel.
The general made several revelations to Purugganan that he said warrants a thorough investigation to ferret out the truth and bring the traitors to justice.
The usual suspects are, who else? Trillanes and his Magdalo group.
Pardon for the long post but I promise you, this is a good read!
A friend who is a retired general, a veteran warrior who spent his military career for more than 20 years in Mindanao told me today that the terror attack in Marawi is unusual.
According to him, jihadists do not launch attack before Ramadan. Usually, they attack after hariraya puasa or fitri. Take note that Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims. They respect and abide by it.
And why Marawi? According to him Marawi is a sanctuary and it is unlikely to be a target. Unless, it was designed to embarrass the Pres Duterte while in Russia or drive a wedge between the MILF and the President to scuttle the on going peace process so that war can come to Mindanao.
To add to this, they may even be igniting a religious war. Look at the people and establishments that they have targeted.
According to him, somebody is playing jihadist.
There is prior information last April of pilferage of firearms by Magdalo group for allegedly continuing ‘special ops’ during the Ramadan to sustain disturbances operation’.
Now, some Maute members are reportedly also members of the Magdalo Partylist or the Samahan Magdalo.
I am trying to hold my conclusion but my experience in intelligence analysis tells me that there is a connection especially when all information points toward Magdalo.
Precautions have to be made.
What is scary here is that the report mentioned of continuing ‘special ops’ and ‘sustain disturbance opns’ during the Ramadan which could mean that other terror attacks may be forthcoming. Ramadan starts on 27 May up to 25 June, a month-long activity. This may be the reason why ML was declared.
With this, I enjoin everyone to be alert and be careful.
The government should investigate immediately and make arrests if necessary. Life of people here is at stake. There is imminent danger. National security is threatened.
Some politicians are playing with fire. They can afford to sacrifice the lives of our people and plunge this country into chaos just to pursue their selfish political agenda. This is really too much. This is treason and rebellion.
Let us pray that the situation will not escalate. And that all people responsible for this destabilization plot will be neutralized.
