The stupidity in comparing the Marawi War to the Mamasapano PNP operation and Zamboanga conflict

The tragic Mamasapano operation (mounted during the term of Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III) in which 44 Special Action Force officers were massacred by elements of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front was not a military operation. It was a police operation gone wrong. This fact, however, did not stop Opposition “activists” from making […]

Moving on from “It’s More Dysfunctional in the Philippines”

Tourism is an important sector for the Philippine economy. In 2015, the travel and tourism industry contributed 10.6% to the country’s GDP (wiki).

Anti-Marcos “Citizen’s Assembly” in Luneta marred by Aquino supporters clad in Yellow attire
