what a lame comment.. The US, Israel, Britain also suffer fom terrorist attacks. Does that mean their military sucks also? Its a fact, phil military is a nitwit comapared to its neighbors or ther countries, but it never had its planes go to its own buildings and Stage Theaters are safe..

moderator is an obvious bigot and a very dumb one at that. The Philippine military produce some of the best elite for ces in jungle warfare, else the us wouldn't employ our boys to train your troops. and china would have attacked us on the spratly island dipute when our now deposed president told em to go ahead and try taking the island by force. moderator, if any army in the world suck, it's the u.s. the us military base their supremacy with dishonorable warfare based on technology. like dropping the atomic bomb in japan or bombing iraq to bits before sending in your chicken soldiers to do some t.v. mop up operations. i have high respects to the u.s. army, but like american foreign policy, moderator you suck! lets play a couple of freindly skirmishes in the airsoft feild sometime! ;-)

moderator, have you been to the Philippines? I suggest that you visit the country and do a thorough observation on how the country runs, esp. the military system in the country, then tell us again if your first impression is correct. what about the Sept 11 bombing, the Us wasn't able to predict the bombing and wasn't able to protect their people and their country, does it mean..US sucks?..

Abu Sayyaf's objectives are to kidnap-for-ransom; and kill hostages to reinforce the first objective. They have speed-boats. They are known to hit coastal resorts and kidnap the wealthy, and run for it. What makes the Sayyaf dangerous is that they control Mindinao area. Most counter-insurgency doctrine states or implies that terrorists need a secure base area to operate. Having much of the southern Phillippines...they have it in spades. Or maybe hearts, now that the army is stepping up operations nearby.

Muslims are less than 5% of Philippines population. In almost 60 years of independence the Philippines has been unable, or unwilling, to suppress the rebellion. If after 60 years we are still fighting terrorists in Iraq, then and only then will I accept the comparison. I don't believe the problem is the military. It is the politicians and the GENERAL level of corruption throughout the Philippines. Filipino politicians are simply unwilling to accept the political heat and the loss of personal income that a permanent solution to the problem would entail.

I think considering the remarkable lack of success the US military has shown with all its immense resources in its fight against terrorists ought to give anyone pause before praticing all too rigorous critcisms os the Philippine military. Again--those in glass houses ought not to toss stones....they ineveitably break glass when tossed back!

i've talked to one of my friends from the philippines and from what he said its mostly, worthless filipino politicians who are the root of not only lack of success against terrorists but also the reason why there is so much tension there.
