THREE STRIKES

STRIKE 1: After saying that the Abu Sayyaf threat has diminished with the demise of its leaders, the military is now resurrecting these ghost in its assault in Sulu on April 13. No Abu has been caught or killed, instead 50,000 residents from eight municipalities have been displaced.

Scores of victims: Abu = 0. Civilians = 50,000. Loser = Peace

STRIKE  2: The military launched an air attack on a village in Davao del Norte in an effort to track New People’s Army that staged a daring raid of a prison armory during Easter Sunday.

Score: NPA dead = 0. Livestock and bananas = many.

STRIKE 3: The military reported the death of nine-year old Grecil Buya in an encounter in New Bataan, Compostela Valley. The military initially claimed this girl was an NPA who engaged them in a firefight.

Now they are singing a different tune, saying the girl is actually a student, and that the father is an NPA.

No apologies have been issued to the family of the girl.

A girl is dead. Her family is aggrieved. But the victims are now the accused.

Grecil

Propaganda = a lot. Justice= 0
