The Fallen 44, #SAF44

by: Psychic August

First of all, I would like to extend my condolences to the families of these brave gentlemen who sacrificed their precious lives for the peace and order situation in our country, and the civilians who lost their lives from the massacre.

As for the deaths of the 44 PNP Special Action Force (SAF) members, it will be the passage of time that will enable the surviving loved ones to move on with their loss,  as the case will not really be resolved to their satisfaction.

This incident will have an adverse effect on President Aquino regarding his image as the Commander in Chief of the PNP as well as the rest of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.  He will be seen as a "hesitant flip-flopping " commander in chief,  as pointed out by former President Fidel V. Ramos.  DILG Secretary Mar Roxas will not be seen as to having handled the case effectively.  This will have a not so good effect on Mar Roxas' 2016 presidential bid.

Negotiations, most of them done in secret, will be started between the Philippine government panel and the people representing Bangsamoro, resulting in the recovery of the firearms, military equipment, and other personal belongings that was taken from the #fallen44.  However, their killers among the MILF and the BIFF will still be free.  And this is why the surviving loved ones of the #fallen44 will see that there was no real resolution of the case.  This will also have a negative effect on the morale of the rest of the PNP community, although they will still tow the line with their duties under their respective commanders.

As to the two alleged terrorists under the US Wanted list, the cards say:
  • Yes, Zulkifli Abdhir, otherwise known as Commander Marwan indeed met his demise in the hands of the PNP SAF operatives, contrary to the claims of the MILF.
  • Basmit Usman, the second bomb expert pursued by the PNP SAF operatives will eventually be captured late this year, but in Malaysia, not in the Philippines.
The grievances of the surviving relatives of the civilian casualties caught in the cross fire between the PNP SAF, and the MILF, BIFF will be totally missed off by the national government, leaving perhaps local barangay officials to address their concerns.

Finally, the real reason behind this clash or massacre will, unfortunately, never be known to the public.

     From the Blogger: 

Rest in Peace, Gentlemen
May Justice Be Swiftly Served!

  8. While it is true that Cory Aquino dubbed as the icon of Philippine democracy is contributory to restore it, it is likewise true that the same could not have taken place without the massive contribution of the entire Filipino people who took to the streets and risk their lives forcing the dictator out of their country. “People power” is the “last straw that broke the camel’s back,” so to speak. In other words, nobody can claim credit of such democracy all by himself/herself. Every Filipino is either actively or passively contributory or participatory thereon. Filipinos does not owe such democracy to any particular individual considering it is a collective burning desire, courage, painstaking effort, patience, and perseverance to achieve the same. Filipinos owes this freedom from themselves. Without “people power,” there can be no democracy that they enjoy today; considering further that “Democracy is of the people, by the people and for the people.” This is the quintessential meaning of Democracy and every form of freedom appurtenant thereto. Besides, the true origin and epitome of democracy is our creator Himself, God our Father, when He gave “freewill” to every human being upon creation.

    The Gettysburg Address is a speech by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, one of the best-known in American history. Lincoln reiterated the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence with "a new birth of freedom", that would bring true equality to all of its citizens and that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
